Notice anything different around here?  It's not a new layout, it's not new sidebar pictures of the family, and no new sponsors...keep looking...yep, there it is, there are 2 new pages up there.  Get Fit and 365 Gifts are two new pages for your viewing pleasure.
Get Fit is pretty self explanatory.  This is my weight loss journey.  Most of you know it but for new readers I thought it'd be nice to have that all in one spot.  Any questions can be posted to that page and I'll gladly answer.  I just thought this would be easier for readers thank scrolling back through months of posts.  I am very proud of where I came from and happy to share my story with you all.  It's a work in progress so check back often.  I'll post about my 5K training in there once it is a done deal too.  Very exciting.  
365 Gifts is something I haven't talked about.  It's sort of like a New Years resolution I suppose. I started reading the book One Thousand Gifts, where Ann Voskamp vows to find a gift in every day life, big or small. Her story is so profound and really sends a great message.  There are plenty of things in life that get us down, that make us question God, and that we take for granted.  Ann dares the reader to "live fully right where you are" and I can't think of a more fitting task, especially this time of year.  So for the next year I will keep track of at least one gift I find in each day and challenge you to do the same.  
So those are a couple new things going on around these parts.  Hope you all had a fabulous New Years.  Here's to 2012!
