Well, I guess I actually gained about 4 pounds in April. I guess I splurged too much! Today is the start of a new adventure though. Me and some other ladies have gotten together and are doing a weight loss contest. We each put in $20, and at the end of 13 weeks, on July 30th, whoever has lost the most percentage gets the winning purse. If anyone gains from weigh-in to weigh-in, they have to pay too. I think it will be great motivation and I hope to get down to my goal weight by then. I'm pretty excited! Let the adventure begin!

This Sring was and is so beautiful! Most of the trees have already bloomed now, and have their leaves. I so love hearing the birds singing outside! Here are some pictures of Samuel, Naomi, and I. Samuel has been doing the cutest thing lately. He brings me a flower and says, "You Pretty Mommy, don't eat it, put it in your hair!" I just love it! That's what he is doing in this picture.

Hi! I have my computer back, so glad to be back! Here are our Easter pictures, about 3 weeks late! Hope you had a lovely, blessed Easter too!

The real Easter eggs Samuel and I dyed. I hadn't done this since I was young, and it was fun!
The centerpiece I made for our table. A cross, nail, some rocks for a tomb, and grass from outside

So, didn't really make any progress the rest of the month of March. Still at the same weight as my last update. I have been working out though, so that is good. I exercised three times last week. I think I need to put the rest of my Easter jelly beans somewhere out of my sight. I did go to Whole Foods (we live WAY far from there, so don't go much) on Friday, and got a few things such as some Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother, nutritional yeast, a little quinoa, a little Chia, Celtic salt, and Coconut Oil. Excited about that. I have a healthy drink I want to try this week, and if I like it, I will share it with you next week.
Here are my stats:
Current weight: 166 lb.
Height : 5'8
Goal weight: 135 lb. by sometime this summer
