Well, 2015...Welcome!

So...I haven't blogged since March of 2014. And I'd like to say that so much has changed. I'd like to report that I've lost 50lbs, that I'm tan, and have not a care in the world...but I don't really like lying to people. Here's the truth...
The weight- From March to now.... down .2. *sigh* And here I thought I was doing good. Until I decide "hey, start blogging again!" and see that I haven't really made any 'scale' progress. BUT I have made ME progress. I really have..despite the fact that it isn't showing on the scale.

I got a FitBit (well, it was a gift from a friend)..and I love it..I wear it allthetime. I track my food, I try to get my steps. During the summer I was walking allthetime. And no, the scale didn't move really...but my body changed a bit and I was feeling great. That's something, right?
So I'm choosing not to focus on the fact that I'm reporting (truthfully) that the scale hasn't only changed a mere .2 as 'ok'. As in...I could have GAINED 20lbs, 40lbs. I could be further off the mark than I am now. I could feel terrible. I could have no idea at all of where I'm going and how I want to get there...but I do...
Here is my plan (for the next couple of weeks)-
My 'dieting'...the 'crash' portion of my plan started RIGHT after Christmas...December 26th...when all the leftovers were calling my name. But...I made the choice to go low carb until we leave on our #2 Disney Cruise...1/17..well we leave KC on the 17th, board the ship on the 18th..either way...no carbs  until then. And so far...a week into it...I'm down 3.4 pounds (on 12/26 I was in at 192.2, today 188.8). I'm not expecting a Disney Magic Miracle before the cruise. And I should have gotten my ass in gear LONG before now (because it's not like I haven't known about the cruise for well over a year now)..I didn't, and that's no one's fault but my own.

As far as resolutions for the year? I'm going to jump into those more AFTER the cruise...and I do plan on hitting them harder than I did last year!
I'm hoping to be better at blogging this year...I've falling in LOVE with Instagram and the awesome community of super encouraging people I've met (I'm on there as @mairzdotes)

Can I get back to the cruise for a second? I'm soooooo ready for it? Well...my body isn't...but my mind is! Missouri weather has been so gloomy for the past month or more..and cold of course (Hi December/January). I'm ready for sun...I'm ready for warm...I'm ready for poolside and relaxing!! Not trying to wish my life away, but these next two weeks really CAN'T go by fast enough!!!

Happy New Year!
