Goals for good health

Things have been really quiet on the blog front lately as I have not been up to much as far as decor is related.
The one thing I have been trying to sort out if a wall color for my bedroom and a color for the living room. 
After a lot well 2 years of thinking, I have decided on the color for the bedroom, Edgecomb gray is it...the perfect neutral. Now I need to get to it....I have lost my mojo....well I am busy actually.

 I was going between Revere Pewter at full strength and 1/2 strength and Edgecomb gray but Edgecomb is perfect for this room. I wanted a little color but not a color color just a soft shade.
 One coat of Edgecomb sealed the deal for me.
I will paint this room , soon...but I have taken on what I call Project Health right now.

I am on a mission to get myself in really good shape. Since New Years I have been working really hard on my diet and fitness, like a job. 1-2 hours a day of working out 6 days a week and eating really clean and it was slow going there for a while but I have as of today lost 18 lbs, as well I know I have gained muscle since I have been using weights quite significantly.
I have 13-15lbs to go to my goal. I just want to be a healthy weight not too skinny.I need to make my health a priority and I have after all what's more important than health and family, nothing.
My whole family is working on eating well and we are all working out regularly in our crude home gym. It has really helped me weather this rough winter in Ontario.
It's almost been a year since we headed off to Aruba for our first family beach vacation. I love that we are finally taking trips with our kids and making memories like these.

 I have logged so many hours and miles on this trusted elliptical, this was a good day , 700 cals burned.... not too many runs like that, I had to document that.
As well as my health being a motivator we are going on a trip south in a few short days.....and we couldn't be more excited. 

 No recipes I just wanted to share some pics of my healthy know I look forward to healthy eating so much now.
 cilantro dressing
 lots of healthy raw chopped salads.
 Trips south require new shoes right? these are amazing from Target but they are going back because my poor ankles can't handle them, they are so high, I have never had ankle pain from trying on shoes so I know they won't work for a real wear. Cute but they have got to go.....kinda sad.
Back to my healthy choices....smokes salmon on rye crackers

there is so much to do in preparation for a trip getting the whole family organized making sure everything is thought of , not to mention , spray tans and waxing and grey hair touch ups and mani pedi's of course. 

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I have been up to.....
