Glad to be back Mojo Monday

Hi Everybody, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and A Happy New Year. I am so Happy to be back on the the blog and the Wagon lol (the workout wagon that is)..It has been almost a year since my accident and life is getting back to normal. I have even managed to get back on the beauty that hurt me in the first place (my ski-doo). Yes we have made up and started bonding again lol...She promised not to hurt me as long as I jump off sooner instead of holding on lol...Anyway this time last year I was in the best shape of my life. I was training for a half marathon so that included running, upper body and lower body weights 5 days a week. Now even though I still can't run right now I am on my new elliptical and will start slowly with the weights next week.  It is amazing how fast you lose it (your fitness).... I am starting off with a 20 minute beginner routine on the ellpitical and it nearly killed me lol..and just for a reminder for all the Biggest Loser Fans it starts tonight. Enough about that and on to fun things!!!!..I am so excited for all the new stuff buzzing on in the paper world with Lauren Meader starting off on her own with fantastic coordinating paper, stamps and of corse her fabulous Templates, The Greeting Farm is expanding club Anna to Club Anna and Friends, Pink Cat Studios has new digis and some paper piecing projects, and a ton of new releases and inspirational ideas  from everybody to get our MOJO's going :)  To start my MOJO I played along with the sketch over at MoJo Monday..Thanks for stopping by today ...Monique
