health...Dallas...Lulu & Co....a little bit of everything!

THANK YOU to all of you for your encouraging words on my {last post}! I'm still working toward my goal, but I do feel so much better knowing I'm headed in the right direction. 

For those of you that asked, I'm following the {Take Shape for Life} program. I've learned a lot reading the books and really, it was just eye-opening for me {the biology major in me appreciated the medical info. the plan is based on!}.  I also like that the program focuses on preserving lean muscle, eliminating adipose reserves, and has transition and maintenance goals that are doable.
But to be 100% honest, I think that what's helped me the most is just being mentally READY to tackle this challenge. There have been times I've tried to make changes in my life (not just weight) and I wasn't 100% committed, and that's just setting myself up for failure. I'm not a wishy-washy person...I want to see results!! So for me, I have to give it 100% or not at all. I believe you just have to be in the right mindset for it to work...no matter the program followed...and I was tired of the same old, same old, so when I decided to make a change, I was ready to give it my ALL!
These pics are from our girls weekend in Dallas last weekend.  I resisted {Sprinkles cupcakes}...now THAT is dedication if you know me and my sweet tooth! ha!
Finding the right balance has also made me cut back on {Lulu & Co.} orders...and don't even get me started on emails!! {Sorry!}  Bittersweet, but my family comes first. Here are a couple of recent orders that were a lot of fun to make...
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Geaux Tigers!
I came home from our girls weekend with waaaaaay too much just enough fabric...
Some super fun party supplies for our annual North Pole Breakfast...
{I'm thinking "Nutcracker" for this year's theme!}
A super cute door wreath...
And the best "souvenir" $14.99 can buy! I mean LOOK how excited they were!!
Cutest lemAnade stand I've ever seen! he he he
It was so wonderful having a little break to refresh and enjoy leisurely dinners and fun shopping with some dear friends, but I sure missed my usual cuddle sessions...
...and time with my favorite girl!
So I'm working on balance and enjoying a little more "me" time here and there...
All with the ultimate goal of being a better wife and mother...progress not perfection...that's what I'm striving for.
Thanks for being a part of our journey!
Happy weekend!

You look great! I've been needing to make changes in my life too but can't seem to get motivated. Your posts help.
