i almost do...

2013 has been a good year for me/my family so far and I have no complaints.
Life is good :) 
B and I are good.
 C is happy as can be
I just adore the fact that the little things in life make him so happy.
 Can't believe that our squishy baby C will be 2 in 4 days.
CRAZY!!!
 
Billy has new hockey teams this year and they just won their tournaments over the weekend which was awesome! Fun was had before and after the game with friends ;)
 
B is also in the process of opening a new gym, it's more of a crossfit style gym. I'm super excited about it!  His hockey business is thriving and things are just generally going great for our family.
 
BTW, even though I'm a stay at home Mom I help B a lot.
I keep track of everything in many, many excel spread sheets ;)
I also keep up with emails and help with his scheduling, where I can.
 
I've been keeping on top of my workouts and seeing more results!
I started working out in December and 5 months later I'm still at it and don't plan to stop.
Running is my favorite thing to do during my 1-2 hours of alone time every day.

Now I'm not trying to brag about how great life is these days, we've been through many struggles and I know life is one big roller coaster. 
Lots of ups and downs.
It's just crazy when things in your life are all positive and then you get hit with negative.
Brought down.
Out of nowhere.... 
With all things going well I was a bit shocked two weeks ago when I received a text message from a (best)friend, randomly, pretty much saying she didn't want to be friends anymore. 
 I've known her for almost 12 years so the fact that she just didn't want to be friends anymore came out of no where. 
I had just went to her daughter's first birthday party and we had recently been to dinner as well.
She said she didn't know how to say it but we weren't on the same page anymore.
I have no idea what she meant by that and I was too hurt to even get an answer.
 
How can we not be on the same page anymore, all of a sudden.
I'm still the same person I was.
The only thing that has changed in my life in the past few months would be me taking better care of myself, being a better Momma to C and watching him grow into such a little character, B and I growing stronger as a couple and his businesses doing great.
I can't really think of anything else different...
Sometimes I want to reach out to her and ask her about it and every time I don't, I almost do.
 
I'm thankful for all the friends and family I do have.
When you lose a friend, even if not actually losing them, there is almost a grieving process.
I was running on the treadmill thinking about the loss of the friendship and I cried.
I guess my body doesn't care about endorphins.
I just ran and cried.
I felt better after and realized I just need to pick myself back up.
Everything in life happens for a reason.
I can't dwell on anything in the past.
That won't get me anywhere.
I'm going to continue being me and living my life the way I have been.
Everyone else surrounding me in life is supportive and positive and that's what matters.
 

Annie
p.s. To the couple of gals who have reached out to me about exercising and turning your life around, thank you! It lets me know that what I share with you all helps motivate others!

I love this post! It's so important to celebrate successes, tribulations and life's blessings. I am jealous your love likes to work out! I'm very passionate about fitness and my boyfriend is not! He just bought protein powder and started lifting again.... Cross your fingers he's been reinspired! :) Happy Wednesday!

Rhi said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. You are looking FANTASTIC and you are quite the inspiration!

Megan Ashley said...

You stay positive momma! You are such a good person inside and out! I am sorry for the loss of your friend, maybe there was a little jealousy :/ or maybe it was more, either way some day she will probably come around and tell you why. Keep your head up. How awesome is life for you right now!!!!! WOOHOO, don't let anything or anyone get you down. I admire the heck out of you, and you motivated me to start my toning NPC journey, I thank you!!! I cannot beleive C is almost my C's age, so crazy how fast it went, and he is soooooooo handsome! I am so happy for you and your family. Glad that B is doing so well, and I just know your supportive role as his wife probably makes it easier than ever to continue with his growing business. XOXO!

Shannon said...

I'm sorry about the loss of your friend, maybe she's going through a tough time and it's hard for her to be around you when things are going so well? Who knows, but hopefully in time she'll want to be friends again. I think you are doing great with your new working out addiction, you look awesome!

Meagan said...

Totally left you a long comment and it disappeared. She's just jealous and probably doesn't like herself. My ex BFF is the same way. We don't need those bitches!

You look amazing! Your friend will realize what she's lost, they always do :)

Aly said...

This is amazing! Anyone in your life should be so happy and proud of you! Love Billys teams jerseys- they're great!

Jamie said...

You are such an inspiration to me! I have a little boy as well that will be 2 soon though I would love to look like you do I am expecting our 4th little boy in 8 weeks...but you are my inspiration to lose this baby weight after this baby is born. Also, you have been my inspiration and motivation to get my butt in gear and start blogging more! I love your blog and C is so adorable I just want to squeeze his little cheeks!!!

Congrats on a great year!!!

Annie, I am so sorry about your friend. It sounds to me like maybe she's jealous of your happy life. No matter what it is, it's a painful thing to go through. I know from my own personal experience. I do want to tell you that your exercise posts on Instagram have been SUCH an inspiration to me (I'm vblocal678)! After losing 40 pounds about three years ago and wearing a Size 4, my husband got very sick and nearly died. With the stress of my life during that time and worrying about him and the possible future of my two little girls not having their dad, I just let myself go completely and gained back the 40 pounds, plus close to 20 more. My husband is better than ever now and our little family is the happiest we've ever been. It's because of your posts to Instagram and your blog that I've been inspired to get my body back. I look forward to all your positive posts and pictures. I'm down one size already, and I have to say that I owe my motivation to you. I hope that in time, if you want it to, that things between you and your friend work out. Take care and keep up your great work!

loss of friendships can be so hard, but just know that you are such a strong and beautiful woman and this is a blessing in disguise. If someone can't be happy for your success and joy then that is there own issue and struggle... you are wonderful!

Callie Nicole said...

That's hard, Annie - it's always sad when friendships end, but especially when it's cut off in such a harsh way like that. :-/
