I'm a wife, a daughter, a sister, and I'm working towards being a mom. I love children and the joy and excitement that they bring.
My husband and I have been trying to start a family since September 2007 and it has been an emotionally rocky road. We're praying everyday that God gives us understanding and patience to rest in the fact that His timing is more perfect than we can ever imagine.
On his way to TWO!
And I know there'll be days When this life brings me pain And if that's what it takes to praise you Jesus, bring the rain

I can't believe I'm about to do this...
This is the "before" at Day 18 *post dinner (as if that makes a difference) - pre workout*
Well there you have it. Holy crap.
I'll work on a shot that shows legs too. The middle is clearly the problem area anyway. I looked even worse in the ones MrG took of me so we'll go with this for now.
In better news I did the Shred 2 days in a row and I'm not passed out on the floor and my back doesn't hurt! Score!
AND... my day was made by 7:15am. The resource officer at our school asked me this morning what I did while I was gone for the snow break because I looked different. I asked him what he meant and he said I looked thinner - that it took him a second to put his finger on WHAT was different but that I looked slimmer. I almost passed out in the middle of the hallway. If I weren't married I probably would have kissed the man. ;) Best compliment ever.
Can I shred tomorrow too? We shall see. Right now my left calf is cramped up but I'm going to be hopeful that it'll feel better tomorrow.
