Over the weekend

First week of school is done and over with!!!  I seriously don't know how I got through...... It was because of Justin.  That's for sure.  We have opposite school schedule's so we barely get to see each other.  He left me this little surprise on our kitchen table when I got home.
 I was speechless.... just lots of hugs and kisses!  How did I get so lucky?

Last weekend Justin was fortunate enough to go to a recording studio and put together some music he has written.  Did I not tell all of you how amazing of a musician he is??  I consistently have the green monster of jealousy on my shoulder.  He surprises me with every song he writes.  Guitar, piano, cello, garage band, bass, or just his voice, he is extremely talented.  And oh so cute of course :)


It's crazy to think that I am half the pant size I was in June. HALF.  A lot of people have asked me how I have lost all the weight.  It's all about portions. and lots and lots of water..... Seriously I cut my portion size to about 1/3 of what I was normally eating. and cut out the soda. (HARDEST THING EVER!) I also get on the scale everyday... I know that sounds scary but when the pounds were dropping it kept me motivated and when they started rising again it helped me get back in focus. I seriously can't believe it works this way.... It's completely worth it.  I also have lost all this weight just through my eating habits.  That's how it has to be done.  You can go to the gym every day while still eating what you always have and have it hardly make a difference.  I haven't really been to the gym this whole time I've been working on my weight loss but now that I am almost to my goal, it's time for me to get toned and fit so I have the body I need and want.  Toned and healthy. This is such an exciting thing for me.  I am really happy about what I have accomplished.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Way to go Liesel. You are awesome. I defiantly need to get off a little holiday weight. You're an inspiration.
That is amazing your husband plays so many instruments. I am a little jealous myself. I wish I had more musical talents.
