WOW! Just when I needed it, I run across this fabulous website about weight loss! It is called No Excuses Gym and has articles about everything from weight training to jogging.

The woman who is writing it is a personal trainer and aerobics instructor. She worked for a five star private spa and club in Las Vegas for three years, but then decided to go into business for herself. Her name is Marcela and she is there to help you design your own personal fitness routine and help to set your weight loss goals. Her program will be designed specifically for you and will suit YOUR schedule and YOUR lifestyle.

I’ve read over her site and there are a lot of very interesting articles on it. She discusses things like portion control, little steps to eating healthier, how to choose what dishes are the most healthy at restaurants and even where the top hotel gyms are located. She also discusses how to do different exercises on her website. I have found those articles the most helpful to myself because that is where I tend to have the most problems when it comes to my doing exercises.

She also has an article called easy simple workout. All of these exercises are done sitting down which is a great way to get started exercising if you’re not in the best shape (like myself) and can’t do a lot of the more stenuous exercises out there. This is where I’m going to start at least until I build up my stamina again.

So, why not check out her website. There is no time like the present to get started on the new you!

I’ve been contemplating what I want this new year to bring for me and, just like every year, the top item on my list is to be at a healthy weight. I thought last year would be THE year that I finally achieved that goal, but nope, it didn’t happen. Actually, I’ve gained back pretty much all the weight that I’d lost. Not good. So, will this be the year that I finally get up off my ever expanding behind and get it done? Will I make my goal in 2007 of becoming a healthier, happier version of myself? I hope so. I’m taking steps in the right direction anyway.

I have been following the war and things that are going on overseas in Iraq. I’ve known a few people that have been deployed over there, friends and family members, and want to keep track of things so I know what is happening. I never liked studying history or wars in school, mainly because they were in the past and had nothing really to do with me (at least that’s how my teenage mind saw it), but I do find it more interesting to me now to learn as much as possible about this current war. There is a new website called Iraq Study Group Report. It is offering anything and everything Iraq related. This site is updated regularly with the lastest information in relation to Iraq and the present day war. Their books are priced super low so I’m going to order a hard copy now. They also have the option of downloading an ebook, but really with a cost well under $10 it will pay to get the real thing. They also offer safe and secure ordering and accept all major forms of payment including Amazon gift certificates. Why not go check it out today?

I hope that everyone has had a wonderful Christmas today. I had a fantastic one. I was able to spend time with my loved ones and celebrate the magic of the season with my kids, niece and nephew. granted my kids are old enough now to not get as excited about Santa, but my niece is only 3 and my nephew is 7 so they were both super excited about all the gifts.

Tonight has been spent putting things away, finding a place for all the new items that we brought into the house and getting rid of the boxes and wrapping paper. Every year at this time, I wonder if my house will ever be the same because right now, even after putting things away all evening, it still looks like a tornado went through.

It is raining now too. the forecast originally said we would get up to 2.5 inches of snow today. we’ve only seen a few flakes so far and i’m keeping my fingers crossed that is all we see. I’m not a big fan of snow at all as my friends and family know and I would be perfectly content if it never snowed here in the winter again. If someone would just invent a way to keep the snow off the roads, MAYBE i would like it better. And then again, maybe not:)

Anyway, again, I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. not long before it will be 2007 and that is when we all get to look forward to the blessings of the new year to come.
