Crawling, Pics, Trails...Oh My!! Not to mention Weight Loss

Good Morning to all!
 This is going to be quite a large post due to me not posting in  a long time. I have been super busy but I am now ready to share with you all what has been going on. First things first... my 9 month old started crawling so I have been trying to keep tabs on her, She is into EVERYTHING and I am still adjusting to what things I need to put away for while until she learns she cannot touch it:0 (yeah good luck!) Next, I just have to share some pics of my little one that I, of course, just think are too cute!!

                                                     Yes  painted her toenails:)

On a different note, they have opened up this new trail near my house that I absolutely LOVE!! It's perfect to walk with Nova so I don't have to fight traffic and when I go running it's nice because it's not hard concrete and easy on my knees. Not too mention there is a 360 degree view of the mountains and city:) I snapped a few shots on my walk the other morning...take a look...

                                                 Here is one of the bridges you have to cross
                                                                   A closer look

Now....drum roll for the weight loss, I am going to put myself out there and hold myself accountable for what I am trying to accomplish. I am trying first to get back to my pre prego weight, then lose another 10-15 pounds. I don't think it is unrealistic for me I just need to feel more comfortable about myself and the way that clothes fit. Having a baby and gaining weight like that has made it a challenge and I intend to to lose it. So here it is... I now weigh 172.2. My pre prego weight was 149. It is mid week but I told myself at the beginning of this week that I wanted to be in the 160's by Monday. That leaves me 5 more days including today to do it. My plan is to not change my lifestyle to unreasonable measures that I will not stick to long term. For those of you that know me.... that means I will not give up my alcoholic beverages. I know this is a big part in losing weight, but long term...that will never happen. So...I ask you all to come along with me on this journey and hold me accountable!! That's it....

Hi Jeriel!
Those pictures of Nova are so stinkin' cute! She's so adorable! I love her little painted toes! :)

I ♥ that new trail. I had so much fun with you guys on our walk there, and can't wait to go back again. It's the perfect place to walk/run.

You're doing great already with your weight loss. Way to go!
