The BIG 7-0!

I am happy to say that after 2 weeks of bouncing up and down 2 lbs, I have now hit -70lbs :)  It's hard to believe really.  I still have a good 40-50lbs to go and lots of toning and slimming down but I'll get there.  

I really really want to try crossfit because I've heard amazing things and from a facebook page I've seen of crossfit women, the transformations that people go through are just crazy.  I have 5 months until our cruise and I really really want to look the best and be in the best shape of my life because I know we will probably start trying to have kids shortly after.  While I know I can get in shape after baby...I'd like to prep my body beforehand.  However....crossfit will not be happening any time soon since it's $129/month.  Crazy!

Darren wants to train for a 5k that is happening this October at our church to raise money for building wells in Africa.  He wants me to do it with him.  Then he tells me he wants to do it in 30 minutes.  Umm.  haha  Now, I do want to train for the 5k because it is on my goal list but I don't think I'm going to give myself a specific time limit.  I'm just going to have to play it by ear...or as Darren says "build that bridge once we get there".  

I've seen our pictures that we had done a couple of weeks ago.  There are several that I really love.  However, I'm trying really hard not to pick out flaws that I see on myself and just enjoy the pictures.  They just give me incentive to keep going and keep working toward my goal.  So maybe we'll do another one in a few months....especially if I actually get my butt in the gym or our house sells and I can do a few months of crossfit :)  Anyway...I'll post a few of the pictures as soon as I get the cd.  And then I'm going to work on a photo gallery wall that is sure to be super awesome so I will post pictures of that when I am all finished as well.

Speaking of the house.  We had several people come and help us paint this past weekend which was SO great!  I really don't think we could have done it without them all.  I went today and took pictures because I'm very picky with the way that they look.  I look at houses online all the time and I don't take a second look at a house if the pictures suck.  I don't know why people don't think that way when they take the pictures.  My realtor is making me nervous.  She's not being very good at getting back with me and she's been telling me for 2 weeks that she is going to pull the comps to tell us what we should list the house for.  I've yet to hear that.  I want the house on the market this week.  She knew we were working our butts off to get the house ready for the beginning of August and yet she hasn't even told us what we need to do as far as any paperwork goes.  The only reason we are staying with her is because she said she would help us out with realtor fees since we lost out on so much.

K....that's all :)
