Long time, no see ... (and a giveaway!)

So, I haven't been on this blog in quite a while.  Things got busy with the move last fall and winter.  I was trying to get in a lot of work-outs while dealing with a few sicknesses, too.  We survived that time and are enjoying living in Seattle now. 

While we lived in the apartment, I was pretty good about walking around the city.  I didn't do as much once we moved into the house, but I tried to walk to the bus stop a few times each week.  I finally started back at the gym last week, and that was actually nice.  I have done a couple of Zumba classes and worked out with 3 different trainers.  I now have 1 regular trainer and 2 appointments each week.  Since I have my workouts in something of a schedule, I suppose I should get better about my eating habits.  They have been up and down since the move, and I would like to be more regular with eating healthier.

One exciting bit of news is that I got a bike today!  It has only been used 3 times, but the previous owner is moving across the country.  Sad for her, but it was a great deal for me.  Since the boys are so excited about biking these days, it will be nice to be able to bike with them!  They can bike much faster than I can walk.  Hopefully I will be able to keep up with them a little better now.  They wanted to have a race when we got home tonight from picking up the bike, but I was only able to test it out briefly before I cooked dinner.

Through a friend on facebook, I found out today about this cool giveaway for a SPIBand.  I had never heard of these before, but they look really cool!  I can totally see using these at the gym (since I am currently having issues toting my keys to every station when I do personal training) and for walks and for bike rides.  They are reasonably priced, too, in case I don't win one.  You can check out the giveaway at the blog of Slow is the New Fast.  Good luck and hope to be better about writing on here this year!
