I'm Back!

Hey everyone! I am back from hiatus. So much has happened over the last 3 years... wow has it really been that long? Guess so. We are now a family of 4. Which makes my heart so happy. We welcomed "papoose" December 2014. Hubby got a job closer to home and I have been working on getting my personal trainer certificate. I will be certified in December of this year. I was just accepted to start back at our local university in January so I can finish my degree in management and then the plan is to get my masters in teaching. Life got a little rocky last year but this year seems to be amazing so far!

We took the boys to Disney for their first time over the spring and now I am trying to take them back as much as possible. The goose loves it. I took him and a friend of mine and her little boy there this past weekend. We all had a blast. Now to plan Octobers trip. ;)

I recently started training to run my first half marathon. I want to do the RunDisney race in February. It's been a goal of mine and recently I started a "30 by 30" list (which I will post more about later) and it is one of my goals.

We have recently made a couple changes around the house. With everything going on the past couple years I slacked off a bit. Not anymore. We painted our front door turquoise instead of the maroon that it was. And I bought this CUTE outdoor light from Pottery Barn. I am in LOVE. It is a little hard to see from the road but when you get up to the porch it is beautiful. Seems to flow perfectly with the new door.

Missed y'all!! Hope to see you back tomorrow. :)

So I am hoping by bringing back this blog, I will be able to hold myself more accountable in my weightloss/fitness journey. April 2014 I weighed 142 and wore a size 4/6. May I found out I was pregnant with my second son. I was excited but at the same time stressed because I had just went from a 12 to my 4/6 after my first son. Loosing weight after kids is SO not easy. January I decided to get serious and try and loose the rest of this baby weight. I had finally gotten life into a routine and it was go time. I started out at 169 and a size 10. I went to boot-camp 4-5x a week and cut out fast food and soda from my diet completely. Well then summer vacation hit and having kids home 7 days a week with me and having one playing Allstar Baseball has led to more convenience rather than healthy. So today, I am starting out at a size 8 and 162lbs. I have decided to try and do intermittent fasting for the first go round. A friend of mine recommended this book and it has me hooked.  So s

So I decided to buy myself a gift. Sure is cute isn't it! Getting ready to take little man to gymnastics practice. Afterwards, getting my hair done. First time since May! How crazy! I used to go every 3-4 weeks for highlights but life has been way to crazy lately. We are thinking of taking man to the local fair this weekend. He has never been big enough to ride the rides before so we haven't taken him to one since he was 3 months old. Bet he will love it. :) The big state fair is in two weeks and we are def. doing that one. Looking forward to fall! I love to make homemade pumpkin pie's and decorating. Best time of year! What is your favorite time of year? XoXo, The Cantrell's
