Christmas 2010

Borman Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. Both Lance and my mother Liz were here! We had planned on my mother coming weeks before Christmas so the children and I didn't spend it alone. Lance surprised us all and came home just a week before. The children were very surprised and really loved the holidays!!

We all had a great time while mom visited. We were able to visit the capital, Olympia, WA. We were near the Capital Buildings and one of our family favorite places, The Hands On Children's Museum!!

Gym Rat, well....

We have been going to the gym a lot more since Lance has been home. I have been trying to run and do some weight training.

I have started a Couch to 5K type work out. I haven't stayed on schedule, which I need to work on. It would be easier to go everyday if I had a plan. I have been walking 4min. and running 1min. This seems to work for me. Friday will be 1 week. I hope to do the 4 and 1 for 2 weeks and then try a 3min walk 2 min run for 2 weeks.

My hope is to do a 5K before my birthday. May 29th. I keep complaining about my weight yet I don't do anything about it. THIS YEAR IS DIFFERENT. With the 15 lbs weight loss from Sept to Dec of 2010, it has really motivated me to loss another 20 lbs by summer. I have to give myself leeway because I know I could plateau and I don't want to get discouraged.

All of this work is in hopes of a tummy tuck in the next 3 yrs. All the babies I have had sure added skin, floppy skin. Who knows maybe all the working out and eating right might minimize the tummy enough to make me happy in myself to not need the tuck.

Until then. Water and workouts!! I hope to blog about my workouts and progress to keep me accountable and motivated!!


Painting Rooms

We have been painting rooms in the house. The colors are going on well. Lance seems to really enjoy painting. He hated not being here for the move so this kinda makes up for it. He feels like he is doing something with our house

The only room we have decided we do not like but will live with for a while is the Master. We went with Pesto green form Behr Home Depot. Well it is not a "pesto" color it is a much cooler color. We were hoping more for a lighter warmer green.

The first picture is more of the color. I don't mind the 2nd picture if that is really what it looked like.

As you can see too I need to straighten up and get a good sewing spot together. I have great light for it now!!

Picture of THE House

Hey all,

We have been very busy the last few months and I have not had time to post anything.

Here is a picture of the house as promised weeks ago. We are almost finished painting the rooms. The children were very excited to pick their room colors!

I have a lot more to catch you up on so be watching! Day trips, family time, and lots of Basketball.

Have a great night!!

Rachel and Family!
