Happy Birthday Matt!

My hubby turned 30 on April 26th.

So we spent the weekend out in western PA on a rail fanning trip( I think that is the terminology). We had a great time watching trains and spending time together. I got a chance to read 3 books in 3 days. It was great!

We went to Horseshoe Curve in Altoona, PA.

Train going around the curve.

This is a picture of how close the tracks were to the inn we stayed at. The inn's name was called the Tunnel Inn because it was almost in the tunnel.

Taken from the back deck.

We got to see a really cool cool train. This train is Norfolk Southerns business train heading to Kentucky for the derby. So there was many railfans waiting to get this picture.

Matt would like to take another trip out that way in the fall so he can get some fall colors in the pictures. So we may try to work out a trip.

Thank you everyone for you support and encouraging words!

I am still waiting a few test results to come in but the bottom line is I have to lose weight.

Tyler and I have been doing more walking and we are going to start back at the Y this week since our colds are gone.

Our master bath remodel is almost finished!!!!!! Tomorrow the plumbers come to hook up the plumbing and then we are good to go!!!!!!

This project has gone on for about 6 weeks and I am tired of the mess. So stay tuned for pics to come.

Next up is the living room. My mother in law and I are starting that project next week. I will post pics of this project as well.

I would post some pics in this post but I am without my computer or my hard drive. My hard drive last week decided to stop working and I did not back up so I am having lots of computer people looking a the hard drive to see if they can get my pictures back.

So please, please back up your computers!

So hopefully I will be able to post pictures soon!

Weight Loss and Getting Healthy

So I went to the doctor the other day for a follow up on my blood work and he was not happy. I wasn't happy myself. Everything was slightly elevated. Which expected because my weight has increased by 60lbs since my dad got sick. I have been emotionally and stress eating for almost 2 years and it has to stop.

So today I am starting my new plan. I am cutting portions, counting calories and walking 20mins 3x a day 4 days a week. Some walking will be at the gym some will be around the neighborhood.

I have to do this so the weight will come off and I will be healthy again.

I was floored when I realized I weigh more now then when I was pregnant with Ty. All I keep thinking is how did I let that happen? when did this happen?

Stay tuned for updates!

The bathroom is almost finished all that is left is to put up a few things and then I will take pictures of the remodel. Next on the chopping block is our master bathroom. After the bathroom we are moving on to livingroom.

We are also brainstorming so idea's for the kitchen and the back yard.
