I am very happy today.

I have REALLY been struggling over the past few months with depression. So I treasure days like today. My mood is up, and I feel very blessed and ready to take on what the world is giving me right now. My circumstances are not ideal... I am walking a tough road and facing a lot of trials right now. But today, I feel like things will be okay. In the end, I will be good.

So... Yesterday I cut my hair again. Yes... again. I just didn't **like** the last cut. It was a lot of work to get it just how I wanted it, and it wasn't a "gym-friendly" style. I felt like I had helmet head after a good workout. So I went in and did what I wanted to do the first time...

It's drastic... but I love it! With summer coming up, I know I will love it even more. And after the gym today... it still looked great!

Speaking of the gym... I did ONE HOUR on the elliptical today! Yeah!

Over the past few days, I have felt myself losing focus. With three extra kids this weekend, it was impossible to get to the gym. I walked for an hour at the park on Saturday, and got two HUGE blisters on my pinky toes. Yesterday was an in-service, so today I knew I had to get in the gym and push myself hard. I will not start sliding backwards now.

With all the haircuts over the past few weeks, I have noticed something... my double chin is disappearing again. Gotta love that. AND several people have mentioned that they can tell that I am losing. The scale might not want to cooperate... but the gym workouts are making a big difference in my overall size. I slid on a pair of jeans yesterday and I felt so good because I could definitely tell they are looser.

I have two week at home, and I plan on making the most of it. I REALLY want to keep this great feeling!
