Day 1

Wow this Blog is DUSTY!! 2014 was an amazing year for me, I achieved several personal goals but my fitness took at hit while trying to maintain balance.

What I am proud of??
-Earned the role of Temporary Manager for a team focused on Safety and Culture for 8 months, I have always aspired to be in management.
-Attended the Diversity and Inclusion Conference in New Orleans, LOVED IT!  I geek out on that stuff.
-Read every day starting in April, including completing over 15 books! - This is huge since I am a slow reader.
-Put my family first in many ways

What I am not proud of??
-Watched much more TV than I should, often neglecting my kiddos
-Drank more adult beverages than I should in the name of STRESS
-Failed to get on a fitness and eating schedule
-My weight ballooned to 215lbs!! I told myself I would never be over 200 pounds again. UGH!

What I WILL achieve in 2015?
-Eat dinner at the table atleast 3 nights a week
-Every Friday night is family night
-Create a running/training schedule to be in Half Marathon shape by May
-Track my eating and exercise to get back into onderland
-Watch less TV

Looking back just a few years before I blogged I can hardly believe how different my life was.  I have some of the most amazing Friends, all of whom I met in some way through this Blog.  We celebrate Birthdays, race together, cry when we need to, laugh all the time, and enjoy each others company even if it is via a group text.  Below are a few fun picture from this year, 2015 will be even happier and healthier.











I hope to be better about Blogging...but really living is taking up most of my TIME.  All the best friends.  You can always find me on Instagram at runtallmom.  Happy New Year!!
