New Diet plan for 2015

So I could post this on Facebook but I think I want a little less people seeing my results or just how bad I've let myself go...  

I started Isagenix on January 1, 2015.   I started that day weighing 213.8  and well I didn't look so good.  

Isagenix is basically a shake/ cleanse regimen.  I got a 30 day cleanse pack.   It's been 12 days and I've lost 14 lbs.  and well over 14 inches.  I'll measure again on Thursday.   but it's going so well.  I'm excited about it cause I am now at 199 and I haven't seen that on my scale since before I had Charlotte.  almost 5 years ago.  AMAZING!

So I'll post my before front, back and side pictures and then a front and a back picture so you can see it's already starting to show.   I was seriously shocked at how my back looked.  Embarrassing to see what I look like from behind.  kinda glad I didn't look at that everyday...  Anyway last Sunday I thought I actually looked pretty good so I had Matthew take a picture of me.  I don't usually, well don't ever think that so this is something!  I see it in my face a lot too.   Which is awesome!

  I'm actually wearing the same thing in this picture.    Ok so my butt is still huge but look at my back, that is amazing.  and only 12 days!
Ok so I need a new camera.  My good camera got dropped in turkey grease and my camera phone well just isn't as good as it used to be.  Maybe a Valentines gift is in order...

Newport News, VA Labor Day 2014

We went down to Newport News, VA for labor day this year to visit with some of my favorite cousins the Fugals.  We went to Brigham's house.  There were 13 kids and 13 adults all staying at brighams little house.  Some of us were staying in tents in the back yard  some on the floor in the house.  It was packed but so much fun to see them.  It's been ages since I've seen some of them and they've all grown up so much and have families of their own.  I guess those things happen...
 Here's all 13 kids there.

  Here's all the parents trying to get there kids to smile.  it was funny!

 Adam and Sophie  and their kids.  Adam is my closest in age first cousin once removed.  He lives up in Maryland so I need to plan to see him more often.  And seriously he's like more then 7 feet tall!
 This is just off the elementary school's playground.  What a way to go to school. 

Bryce got a ride on Jens on the way home from our walk.   Jens is really tall to so had to bend down even farther under passing tree's but some didn't get low enough and Bryce had leaves and such all over in his hair at the end of the walk. 
 And here's Annette with one of Adams kids.   She's one of my favorite cousins.  It's ok I can say that cause she said my mom was probably her favorite Aunts! I have some found memories going to their house in Utah canning tomatoes and peaches and what ever else was in the garden that summer.  And the grand canyon hike with them was a thing to remember.
 Other then seeing my cousins our other main objective was to go to the beach!  The kids had a blast and the water never got more then like 3.5 feet.  Kathryn  went out farther then I would have liked but was still able to stand.  

 That's about as deep as it went out to those pillars well maybe a little deeper but not much. 

I sure hope to go back there sooner then later as they're going to be stationed else where soon for the Navy. 
One of them Mario I think lives in Charleston South Carolina.  I've got to think of a way to get down there soon to.  I'd love to see that part of the south too.

 All the girl grandkids.  I didn't get a good shot of the boy's but our family is even.  11 girls and 11 boys!

Fit Bit Challenge

I got a fitbit for mothers day and I LOVE IT.  shortly after I got it Village Green Network did a fitbit challenge to get 10,000 steps everyday for 6 weeks.  I entered.  I had to send them a picture and my measurements  at the start and then again at the end of the 6 weeks.   The first 5 weeks were great.  I only missed 2 days out of the whole 5 weeks and then we went on vacation and I missed all those days but 2.  So I did basically 5 weeks and missed the last week.  Anyway in the process of all that I lost 3 lbs, total of like 4 inches off my waist, hip and arm and down a dress size.  I thought I did pretty good.  So I sent in my after stuff and waited and waited and waited.  I didn't hear from them.  SO I thought it was a bust.  I didn't win.  but a few days ago I'm just looking at their website and come across the post for FITBIT Challenge Winners.  So I take a look and to my surprise my picture is there for 1st prize.   I couldn't believe it.   I had won the aria fitbit scale.   my picture and measurements are on the web for all to see.

see for your self.  it's so crazy awesome that I won.  I need to find another fitbit challenge to see what I can do with that one.

I am currently training for a 5k in a few weeks.    I'll post about how that goes soon.

I did do a 2 mile run in Snowflake for Pioneer days. My first timed race.  25.34 minutes.  I was aiming for less then 30 minutes...  I did it!

again it's been way to long...

Our Mother's day shinanigans.
