New Beginnings!

As you all I'm sure have noticed, I haven't been keeping up with the blog very much lately. I have two very good reasons for that. One, everyone that reads or follows my blog is also on my Facebook (that's where I post everything now, including pictures). Two, I've been thinking about either revamping the blog or just discontinuing it all together.

My life has changed a lot over the last year. I started '09 with a resolution of losing weight. I'm proud to say that a year later, I've lost a total of 54lbs, to date. I then started a new chapter & journey by going to nursing school....which I will be complete with in April!

Another big change has happened in the Madera household. As most of you already know, but for those that don't, Chris & I have officially separated and will be getting divorced. Chris did return home from Iraq at the end of October & he made it safe (which I am blessed about). However, things between us were no longer working and we thought it was best for the two of us to continue on our own journeys without each other.

I wanted to let everyone know that I'm doing fine. I'm still going strong in school, still working out & loving it, I'm still working part-time and am enjoying my time with my family & friends! 2009 wasn't the easiest year for me by far, but I'm confident & positive 2010 will be great for me!!
So, until I decide what to do about the blog, you can always find me on Facebook! I hope everyone is doing well, had a great holiday, & that 2010 brings nothing but happiness & good health to all! :)
