About Me

My Photo
I am happily married to a wonderful man who has his dream job. As a side job, he works on computers. I am a mother of two elementary school-aged boys who are very energetic and a precious little girl who is my miracle child. I am changing the way I eat/drink and I'm adding more fitness minutes to my days so I can live a long life to watch them grow up.

Sorry I haven't updated in forever!

I've been very busy this year.  I don't mean to neglect my blog.  I do update my Facebook page by the same name as my blog every day or almost every day.  Hope you all haven't forgotten about me!

2014! I forgot to update all year last year!!!

I can't believe I forgot to post all year last year except for once in January!!!!!  I guess I've been busy!!!  I know I need to blog more often on here.  I've been blogging daily on Sparkpeople.com.  I've changed my life for the better because of that site and the help from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  I highly suggest if you want to lose weight, eat healthier, get fit, or anything else, that you sign up and use this free site regularly.  And if you do sign up, please say that "lizspringsteen" referred you (that's my screen name).  I'll get spark points for it.  Thanks!

So, what have I been up to this past year?  Besides losing 51 lbs last year (and 40 the year before), I've been off my medications for over a year (and doing better than when I was on them).  I've been taking care of my daughter and teaching her things like the ABCs and 123s.  She's potty trained (practically) now.  I've been teaching all 3 children that it's important to take care of yourself and be healthy (and even my husband is fit and healthy now).  My mom moved to MI to be with me.  We miss my dad so much, but that's to be expected.

What's in store for 2014?  I'm still working on being a healthier and more fit person.  I'm striving to get to my goal weight by the end of this year.  Gonna teach my daughter some more things (I'm starting a little early on home-schooling).  I'm gonna try to get the boys to be more respectful and obedient to me and other adults.  I'm gonna try to get the boys to take more interest in doing their best at school.  And my family is going to try to go on some outings this summer.

Have a happy year everyone!

2013 WOW!

I can't believe it's already 2013!  Time is going by so fast!  2012 was a very wonderful year for me.  Lost 55 lbs, bought a house (tomorrow marks 3 months since we moved it), we have a dog and parakeet now, my husband got his dream job (the 9th is his 1 yr mark already!)...just so much more!  I can't even think of all our blessings right now...  Our children are healthy.  We are very happy.  We'll finally be getting a vehicle soon after 2 yrs without one.  My mom will move to MI this year.  And we're hoping my big brother can too.  I'm finally going to have my family near!  I'm so thankful that Adam's family has been so good to me these past 10 1/2 years.  I love them as if they were my blood family.  I know that great things are in store for my family this year.  I hope great things are in store for your family as well!  Have a wonderful 2013!!!
