Don't Stop, Get it! Get it!

Hola a todos!  Just wanted to say I've missed my blog and all my fellow bloggers and readers.  I've been so busy with my little one's back to school routine and my weight loss goals that I've kind of put the blog on the back burner.

Quick update.

I'm down 13 pounds!  Woot woot!  I was down 15 but one week of no exercising and no calorie counting added two pounds back.  So, it's time to step it up and get back to doing things the right way.
I must say that the way my clothes are fitting now is motivation enough not to stop.  As much as I hate to exercise, I love the feeling afterwards.  Planning is the key here.  Being prepared with what I'm going to eat for the day is what really helps me stay on track.  Keep the good vibes coming because I don't plan on stopping.

The Mexican ran into some old friends of his at Wal-mart and invited them over for dinner.  I've struck up a friendship with the lady.  She has a son the same age as mine and they get a long great.   We've had many play dates with just her, I, and the boys.  Needless to say, my Spanish is getting a great workout.  She speaks very little English and we speak mostly in Spanish. I've been very happy about this.  She is learning some English from me and I'm able to keep up my skills.  The best part though is a new friendship!

As some of you know, my husband has an extremely hard time staying still.  His mind is always on the go.... He's always got something cooking (not literally).  We've got some exciting plans that I hope I can share with everyone very soon.

My little one is back in school and I LOVE his teacher.  So far, we've had a great start to the school year.  I didn't talk about it much last year, but I had some issues with his teacher last year.  Nothing major, but this year's teacher has left my mind at ease and everything is going great so far.

I love my job!  Let me just say yell that one more time....  I LOVE MY JOB!  Wow, what a difference in my family life and mood to be working in a great office with a great doctor.  I didn't talk about this much last year either, but I was extremely unhappy at my past job.

My "About Me, Blogroll, Contact Me" and other things have disappeared from my blog! I don't know how or why....  trying to resolve this.  I'm not very techy, (is that a word?) but hubs is going to try and help me discover what I've done when he can.... I hope to get it back up soon.

So, that was a quick update as to what is going on in my little corner of the world.  I hope everyone is doing great.  I'm going to try and put together some posts ahead of time so that way I post more regular.

Abrazos to all!
