a selfie post

Hi guys..  remember me ,  Leslie?
I did it again...   Not on purpose, I swear...  there are just a million things happening in my life.

Since I haven't really done anything creative 
I am going to share something else with you.
Something that has made me very happy.

I don't do pictures...  
 I am not photogenic at all,  which is why you hardly see my face in the blog.
Except for this post..  where I am going to share some of my Unfavorites.

Here i am...   I've been doing the brunette thing for about a year.
 This is Paul and I back last Spring.
(He's got a cute twinkle in his eyes..  prolly up to no good!)

And this one... I was trying to rock a side-pony and skull shirt.

And how about this one ... 
Taken this week- one year ago while getting my one and ONLY painful tatoo.
I know that we don't generally talk about this stuff on our blogs..
but whats up with those boobs?
Where did they even come from?

And this is my scale after a 4lb weight loss.
I was so excited to be back under 165!!!

Some of you know where I am going with this post...
It started when I took that new position at work and started to move more.
aka.. run around like a crazy person!
I though that I had moved a lot before..
 ( obviously a 60 minute workout rotated with a happy meal every couple of days was not enough for me)

Since July,  I am in constant motion and I hardly have time to make junk.. let alone eat it.
Not only has the job itself been rewarding..  but the benefits that it has had on my body has been wonderful.
My back hardly hurts..  my achy knees never hurt...  and I feel amazing!

This is my scale yesterday.

 These are my old size 12 work pants.

 and these are my new favorite comfy jeans.

After all of that hard work...
It was time for a makeover.

A new fresh cut to make me look as good as I feel..

 Ta Da!

 When people ask me how i did it.. 
It's hard to answer..   I wasn't planning to drop 32 pounds.

Just move more and cut out the junk
and trust me, once you.start feeling good about yourself again..
it comes easy!

I miss you all!!!
