Happy Monday Morning!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend and got lots of rest last night. We were supposed to take the kids to the pumpkin festival thingy yesterday but it had been cancelled with no reason given. Bummer. I was so hopeing to get some good pics of the kids in the pumpkin patch. Instead, we took a trip to Tim Hortons for coffee and Tim Bits, and then off to Walmart for some shopping. I bought 3 loofas at $1.47 each! Good deal. I also bought deodorant, and some plastic bottles for shampoo and body wash. Oh yeah... guess what the hubby and I did? We joined Gold's Gym!!! I have my first workout today and I can't wait. I remember the good ole before I had my kids when my body was half the size it is now. Having 2 kids almost back to back really changes a body. For the past few weeks I have been slowly decreasing the amounts that I have been eating and of course eating healthier foods. I have almost cut out cola drinks, almost. LOL. I still like a bit every now and then. I have found a great one at my local Sobeys store that has 0 calories, 0 sodium, 0 aspertame, 0 sugar, 0 caffeine, basically its just colored water. LOL. It still gives you that cola taste and fizz without all the bad stuff. I'm starting to feel a bit better too. So... when hubby gets home from work today, we are heading to the gym. They had a scratch and win promotion when we signed up so we won 5 months of free child-care! That's a $200 saving for 2 kids. WOW! I have to pack our bags today and have everything ready to go when hubby gets home. That's why I bought the plastic bottles for shampoo and body wash. It's better to take the small bottles than the big bottles we have here at home. And of course, I have to remember to pack the new loofas. As the weeks and months progress, I'll keep you updated as to my progress. I am taking a before picture today and when I reach my goal, i'll be taking an after photo. I am so excited.

So... onto todays wordart freebie. This one is a true reflection of my journey to the gym. LOL. Enjoy.
