Valentine's Day

This week is Valentines Day. Many people are probably going to celebrate this weekend since it falls on a Monday this year. Tonight we were fortunate enough to have a babysitter so we treated ourselves to sushi & some japanese cuisine. I knew we were going; so through out the day I was really careful about what I ate, saving my calories for dinner. I also drank 72 oz of water and committed to doing the Shred video twice. I started with level 2 at around noon and then did level 1 as soon as we got home from our date.

It is fun to celebrate holidays and it is our culture to celebrate with food. Enjoy something yummy but try to make good choices and do a little extra exercise to help. Here is a picture of us from tonight. By the way, I posted my pic from my new jeans on Facebook and got 52 likes/comments. I think that is a record! I didn't get that many comments on my birthday. It felt good to get support from all those people. Several of them are still not aware of my blog :)

When Travis came home from work, he surprised me with a big bouquet of flowers. He is a good man. He has been very supportive through my journey. I even convince him to workout with me or do the shred every now and then. He is always willing to watch the kids when I go to my training sessions, etc but most of all he has always loved me unconditionally. No matter how I looked he always told me that I was beautiful every day. I feel so lucky to have him. I think his love language is "words of affirmation". Not a day goes by that he doesn't tell me some compliment.

I once read that "love is knowing all about someone and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk in the room and smile at you." Happy Valentine's Day Travis. I love you more than anything.


  1. I couldn't NOT comment on this--you look A-MAZING in that dress! EVERYTHING about it! You hair, the dress--look at you go, you hot momma!

  2. I was gonna post the same exact thing as Rachel. You are hot in that dress! The outfit is perfect. So glad you got some time away- and that you could still think about good choices.

  3. What a blessing we both have to be married to WONDERFUL men that treat us so well. Travis and Tracy are the BEST!!

    LOVE your quote at the end of your post. I am copying that into my "favorite quotes" document.

    You look so young and "spunky" in your red dress and black tights!! Such a handsome couple and SO happy that you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!!
