I decided to start blogging about Jordan from the moment I found out I was pregnant. Jordan was born with a little arm that didn't grow like most babies. Her left arm stopped just above the elbow. Now I'm committed to making sure Jordan gets everything out of life. We feel blessed to be the parents of a very special little girl.


I made a big decision

I'm going to get healthy. It should involve losing weight. I've found the only way I can lose weight is by actually holding myself accountable. So here is the scariest thing I've found:

I'm not going to babble much about this on Jordan's blog... But I figured I'd make the announcement to hold myself even more accountable. I've found a website called The Daily Plate (TDP) to help me work this out. I tried Weight Watchers (WW) online and it didn't work. The in-office Weight Watchers was awesome but not possible in my current work environment. But after I couldn't convince some fellow professor friends in creating our own online support using WW, I went to an online community instead. I've committed to TDP for the next year (WAAAAAY cheaper than WW). So we'll see how it goes!

If I start getting cranky online, you'll know why. Making the switch to a healthier lifestyle is the hard part. Once it's a way of life again, I'll be back to my normal cheery self.

Oooh. Maybe I should try something like that. Something that is there to stare me in the face every day just might work. It's so easy to get out of the habit of eating right and exercising, but it's soooo hard to get back into it. It's even tougher when you have a husband who can eat anything he wants and not exercise and never gain a pound. That's just not fair.
