New Day, New Beginning's been quite some time.  2 years!  So many things have happened in two years.  Marcus and Maddox are now 7 and in the 1st grade.  Crazy I know!

I'm returning to the blog world because I am stuck.  Stuck in a serious rut.  I am seriously overweight. I have been trying to lose these l-b-s's to no avail. Because of the weight, I am tired all the time. Tired is an understatement, try EXHAUSTED.  I have zero energy to exercise. Zero energy to care about healthy eating. And zero energy to play with my children. I feel like it is taking it's toll on every aspect of my life.

A friend of mine has been using this product called Plexus Slim.  She has seen amazing results using this product.  After watching and reading about her results I thought to myself....what do I have to lose at this point?

So what exactly is Plexus Slim?

Plexus Slim is an all-natural, healthy solution to help you lose weight for the long term. Plexus Slim is the all-natural way to lose weight and inches by burning fat, not muscle. Slim also helps keep blood sugar, cholesterol and lipids at healthy levels. In addition, Slim helps reduce binge eating and increases your willpower over food. Simply pour into a bottle of water 30 minutes before a meal, drink, and experience the results you’ve been dreaming of.

I am super excited to begin this journey.  I can't wait to see the results Plexus Slim combined with healthy eating and exercise brings to me.  More than weight loss, I am looking most towards having the energy to keep up with my energetic seven year olds!

So follow along in my journey.  This blog is going to become my new "Take Control Of Me" journal. Stay tuned for my day 1 weight and measurements. And if you would like more information, or if you'd like to travel on this road to health and wellness with me, visit my website HERE.

A Time For Change

Well y'all.  This is it.  The day before a BIG change.  A new journey.  A new beginning.

I have decided to take the Advocare 24 Day Challenge, and I would like all of you to follow along with me in my journey.

I am so SUPER DUPER excited to start this challenge.  It is seriously time for a change up in the Goldylocks household.

Without further ado {is that how it goes and how it's spelled?} Here are my before pictures.  Wow!  Don't mind the blurriness of my husbands lens on his phone.  Oh, and don't mind the unhappy face and the non-washed & styled hair.  I figured that's what you're supposed to do for before photos: slouch, don't wash your hair, and frown.  That way, when I show you my after photos, I will be one hot, skinny, happy momma!!

So will you follow me in this new adventure?  I can't wait to share all of the positive things that are coming my way.

Tiny Slips of Paper

It's New Year's Eve.
The last day of twenty-twelve.
The day before the first day of twenty-thirteen.

What are you looking forward to?  What are you looking forward to leaving behind?

I read something today in Sarah Ban Breathnach's book Simple Abundance:

"Before we can welcome in the New Year, we need to put the Old Year's unfinished business - mistakes, regrets, shortcomings, and disappointments - behind us." 

Ms. Ban Breathnach then encourages us to write down on slips of paper all the things we'd like to forget, place them in a cardboard box wrapped in dark paper, "sealing in the sorrow and hard luck" and throw them away or place in the fireplace to "burn away the past" as a way to say Sayonara.  Banish the past and bad memories, keep only the good.

What will you write on your slips of paper?
