I'm Backkkkk

I've taken a huge break from blogging, but I'm back!
I hope everyone had a great holiday season, I know I did. 
There will be a recap of my holiday festivities up on Thursday. 
I also have some goals for 2014 that I will share with you tomorrow. 
Here's a little recap of what I've been up to since the last time I blogged. 
I got a spinning bike as a Christmas/birthday present from my parents.
Sole SB700 
I absolutely LOVE it! 
My TV in my room is a smart TV and has YouTube right on it. 
There are sooo many different spinning workouts on YouTube, which keeps me from getting bored. 
I've lost 6 pounds since I got my bike at the beginning of December. 
I'm really happy with that loss considering all the cookies, pasta, and bread junk I ate throughout the holidays.

I've started to weigh myself every Friday morning.
Here are my weigh-ins since the beginning of December:
My weigh-in on New Year's Day:
I'm not going to obsess over the number on the scale, I refuse to do that. 
The number doesn't define me and I'm determined not to let any number get me down.
It has taken me a long time to put this weight on and it will not come off overnight. 
I'm currently feeling really motivated and I'm ready to make 2014 my year!
I saw this quote on April's blog the other day and I love it. 
It is definitely a new favorite. 
I will not allow myself to grow old without seeing the strength and beauty that my body is capable of, I can promise you that.
I look forward to what 2014 has in store for me, or more like what I have in store for 2014. 
Watch out world, I'm ready to rock!
