Body After Baby

It is week 6 of an 8 week challenge.
I have not been doing great. I have such a hard time making myself exercise.
It is so much easier when it is warm outside and I can just put Zach in the stroller and go for a walk. When it is cold outside I don't want to go out at all. Also with the days being so short I find myself going to bed earlier and waking up later. That makes for less awake time and more laziness.
I have been doing better with eating better things. I am not a breakfast person, but I have been making myself eat a little something in hopes of boosting my metabolism. We will see if it helps in the next few weeks. :)

This week I am at 206. Down one pound from last week.

I am hoping to loose 2 pounds this next week. I will be exercising more (I will!!) I did 2 days this week and then of course there is the up and down the stairs doing laundry (we live on third floor). I will be doing the Biggest looser workout this week. Maybe mid day since I have such a hard time waking up and motivating myself to exercise.

Hop on over to Samantha's blog and see what she and everyone else is doing...

Snow Days

There is snow on the ground and it is cold outside!

They have called off school for two days in a row. We have been keeping busy with fun things.

Yesterday was Lego's and baths! My boys love to play with the Lego's. Here is Zach and Sam playing Lego's.

While they play Lego's, Mia enjoys a nice warm bath.

And of course there is time for cuddling on the couch while watching movies. (I just noticed these are different jammies on Zach. Must be Sunday here.)

Later in the evening Anthony and Sam built this really cool car.

And then silly boys saying good night!!

Body After baby challenge week 5

Wow has it been a week already? I can't believe that. So this past week I have been sick 2 days so far. I have a horrible head cold. I exercised two days this week and I haven't been really eating good. It is almost that time of the month so I am super hungry this week. It happens every month.
This week I am at 207. I think that is down 2 pounds from last week. Not quite sure. My memory is horrible.

So Samantha over at Mamanotes is hosting this body after baby challenge and is also doing new 30 day challenges along with it. Check her out here

I will follow along with some of the 30 day challenges, but I might change some things up as I don't want to buy a lot of workout stuff that might not get used more than once or twice. This 30 day challenge is to do the Jillian Michaels The Shred it DVD. I will not do that particular DVD because I don't have it, but I do have a Biggest Loser workout that I will do. I am going to skip out on it today as I feel super sick, but hope to pick it up tomorrow. Also I will make a goal for myself to write down everything I eat so that I know how much I really am eating. Maybe it will also deter me from eating the bite of this and piece of that that I do here and there throughout the day. Do I really want to write down that I ate a piece of a cookie?
Good luck to you on your weight loss journey.

A Bucket List???

What is a "Bucket List"? Well, to me it is a list of things you wanna do before you die.

I have yet to make one for myself.

A fellow blogger shared some of hers and challenged us to share some of ours. You can check her out here

So far my list is short and simple, but I am sure it will be added to as I think of more things I would love to do.
Go sky diving. I am deathly afraid of heights, but it would be cool to say I did it.
Visit Africa.
Read the whole Bible.
Go camping in the jungle.
Go on a missions trip.
Learn to ski.
Learn to surf.
Have Grand children. (Not too soon though).
Buy a house and make it my own.

Like I said - it is short, but I will add to it as I think of more things.

What is on your Bucket list?

First blog of the New Year

I have been putting off writing my first blog post of this new year because I didn't know what to say. I am a motor mouth so that is odd for me. I guess I have been taking it all in. There are so many joys in life and I wanna enjoy them as much as I can.
I want to share my New Year Resolutions with you. I have a few and I want to do good this year with keeping them.
1. Open a savings account and deposit monthly. (I know how horrible is it that I don't have a savings account yet?!)
2. Be better with money. Spend less on junk and out to eat.
3. Read Bible on a more regular basis.
4. Loose at least 5 pounds a month.
5. Exercise regularly.

So how am I doing so far?
It is January 3rd and I have exercised once so far this year (this morning). I wanted to order pizza last night but fought the urge and ate at home instead. I read the Bible once this week and plan on reading tonight. I still have to open a savings account, but have to wait for payday to do that. :) There is a bank that is down the street that lets you open with any amount you want and gives you 6 months to get to the $200 minimum balance to avoid fees. I know it wont take 6 months to get the balance there, but it is nice to have that option.

So what are your resolutions and how are you doing so far?
