Happy 2013!!!! (yes i know i'm 11 days late)

Ok, so..... My attempt at blogging last year did not go very well. But I am back and ready to stick at it, along with some other things this year. I figured I would start my new year of blogging with a list of the 5 things I hope to accomplish this year.

1- I WILL GET FIT. - 2012 was a roller coaster of a year and my plans to lose weight just didn't work. This year it will. I know this sounds a bit ambitious but I am hoping to lose at least 40 lbs by June. Why you ask? Well it is because my Best Friend...for all time...through thick and matter getting (re)married. I say re because they got married back in September but for some reason decided not to tell his family and are now planning a huge shindig. I REFUSE to be the fat MOH in the photos. So I need to have my fitness journey well under way by then.

2 - I WILL BLOG MORE - I promise to blog at least once a week, hopefully more, we will see.

3 - I WILL GET MY WEP CLASSES DONE- As well as currently working on my BA I have been taking a special course in Wedding and event planning. I want to get that finished up asap and hopefully have my business set up for clients by the end of the year. If anybody needs help planning an event let me know *wink wink*.

4 - I WILL GET OUR FINANCES SITUATED - My husband and I are by no means rich, but between his job and mine we can pretty much make ends meet, I just want to get things to where it doesn't feel like we are always living paycheck to paycheck.

5 - I WILL MAKE MORE TIME FOR MY OLDEST - I don't really get to spend much time with her right now. I go to work right after she leaves for school and don't get home till 6, then its time for dinner, bath and bed. I hate that she doesn't get a lot of mommy time and will fix that this year.

So there it is, the 5 main things I hope to accomplish this year. Talk to Yall Soon!!!

Hello To My 13 Followers!!!

Yep thats right there are now 13 of y'all!! If i can get a few more maybe I will starting thinking about a Givaway!!!

So yet again I must appoligize. Yes I do realize it has been AGESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! since I last wrote. I honestly have about a million reasons why I haven't.
  First off I started my college classes reacently so pretty much all of my online time has been going to that.
   We have changed the wedding plans yet again. Instead of waiting till next year to have a super huge wedding that we really can't afford, we are getting married when my grandparents come down from Illinois. Oh yah did I mention the wedding date is the 21st...of in like 6 DAYS FROM NOW!! Yes I am crazy... you would be to if you grew up with my family hahaha. Anyways, we are only having about 30 People there mostly family, and a couple friends that are considered family. I have my dress, made most of my accessories, our rings came in yesterday, my sister is doing my hair and her hubby is mking the most awesome bbq in the whole state of Texas!! Yes I know everybody says theirs is the best but they have never had my brother-in-laws bbq if they are saying that. I PROMISE I will post pics after and as a super special treat I will post a breakdown of how I pulled off my super awesome wedding for less then $300, the most expensive part is the food.
   People please be ready to mentally Gibbs me, I have a confession to make. It has been about 2 months since I last actively exercised. But I think I am ready to get back on the wagon, if I could just stop losing motivation and stay away from the junk food.
  Well I guess I better get my butt to bed, 5:45 comes awful early in the morning, and I need to get up to get that workout in before the kiddos get up. Wish me luck!!!

Later Y'all!!

Homecoming and strep throat

So the past few days have been interesting. Last weekend half the household was sick. Sunday I went to a bridal fair and had an awesome time with a really good friend of mine. Monday we kept the girls home from school because of the stomach bug in the house. Yesterday the girls were well enough to go back to school. Mom and I spent all day....literally from 10 am to around 10 pm making these super hero costumes for super hero day today. I am going to do a massive photo dump on friday if im not too exhausted afterthe football game, if i am it will wait till saturday but i promise it will be up this weekend. Oh yah this is homecoming week in my little corner of the world, hence the superhero day. Today was spent making mums. Mums are a big part of Texas homecomings. They are also super expensive. My mom started making ours years ago and has been making them ever since. They turned out awesome, will put pics of these up in the photo dump too.

I gota call from the school nurse this afternoon saying that I had to go pick up Bella. She was running a temp of 103.6. Went and picked her up and went straight to the ER. I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! The new S&W Childrens Hospital. We were in a room and talking with the nurse and Dr within 15 mins of walking through the doors. My biggest worry was that Bella had picked up the west nile virus, which for any of you hiding under rocks at the moment is really bad here in texas right now. Luckly, but unluckly, Bella only has a case of Strep Throat. This is the second time she has had strep this year. She is on antibiotics, has to stay home tomorrow but can go back to school Friday as long as she doesnt have a fever. She is happy about that because she wants to be able to wear her new mum to school friday lol. I think that is about all for now. I have to got put another fussy little miss back to sleep.

later y'all!!!

I'm Back

Once again I am appoligizing for such a long delay in posts. There are many reasons why it has been so long. I've been busy, kiddos just started school, i've been tired, nothing to write about, all the typical reasons. To be honest with you all, I have been in a major slump lately, not really depression but not being my normal self. I haven't been eating the way I should or exercising. This week i have only exercised 1 day and I didn't even finish the workout. On Tuesday I pulled a muscle in my back and I used that as an excuse to not workout. Add that to having a stomach bug the last couple days and I have yet another excuse for not working out. Now I realize that these may actually be valid reasons for taking some time off but to me they still feel like excuses. I could have walked when I couldn't run. I could do dvds an hit pause when I had to run to the bathroom. But I didn't. Because of this I have made a few decisions.
1- I am going to take Saturday and Sunday off as my last free days.
2- starting Monday I am going to start the C25K program over from w1d1.
3- I will attend Zumba twice a week on Monday and Wednesdays.
4-I will start 30ds again from D1L1. Yes I do realize that means 3 workouts a day on Mondays and Wednesdays.
5- I will get my eating back under control.

I am tired of being overweight and tired all the time. I want to look amazing in my wedding dress a little over a year from now. I know that this is not going to be easy and I will probably fall off the wagon several more time before all is said and done with but the important thing is that I don't give up. That i pick right back up and keep going . I deserve to be happy with myself and to feel like the Sexy Goddess my Fiance swears I am. I need this. I want this. I WILL DO THIS!!!

Typical Tuesday

First of all I want to say I'm sorry to my followers and anybody else that follows my blog. Yes i do realize it has been over a week since I posted last, things have been kinda hectic here. So for a quick update, Emi is sick again, she has a strain od Staph that is apparently very common in little ones. We have been busy getting Bella ready for her first day of Kindergarten next monday, meet the teacher night is thursday. I finally decided to suck it up and register for an online college to get my bachlors so i can become a teacher. I have been thinking about this for a long while, the only thing stopping me was not wanting to student loans, but i realized the longer i wait the more expensive it is going to be so i finally sucked it up, i am just waiting on the final paperwork to get processed and i should be starting in october. I Was shocked this morning, when i went for my walk my mother decided to come with me!! Which if yall knew my mom you would know how big that was for her. But most importantly i am finally at the 10 lb loss point which means i am going to post progressing pics tomorrow, although most of you prolly saw them on the Fit Camp page. Well I think that is all for now. I promise i will start posting more.

Later Yall

Monday's This and That

Not alot to report on today. Bella came back from my sister's. Its been nice having my chatter box home again. I think Emi may have a sinus infection, if she is still like this tomorrow I'm gonna take her to the Dr. My allergies have been kicking my ass the last couple days. Started week 3 of C25k today, had to walk most of the last 3 min run mostly because I couldn't breathe (due to said allergies).

Weekly Quote-" Because today is another chance to get things right"

Weekly weigh in - 218.0

Color of the week- pure ice: free fall

I think thats all for now. Later Y'All

Random Wednesday.

So I was going to do a Wordless Wednesday today, butttttt... I had too much floating around in my head tonight to not get any of it out here. Sorry in advanced if I sound like I am rambaling.

First off I am part of Mama Laughlin's Fit Camp of Facebook. As everybody that reads this knows I generally do my weigh in on Monday. Well the weigh in for the fitness challenge in the group is Wednesday, so I went ahead and weighed myself for a 2nd time this week. Guess what!!! 217.4 people!!!! Thats down a whole 1.4 lbs from Monday!! BooYah!!

Things are strangly quiet around the Camp/Watson household tonight. My oldest Bella is spending a few days at my sisters house before school starts. Now normally my little Boo is a MAJOR Chatterbox. She even talks in her sleep people!! Don't get me wrong I am enjoying the noise-less-ness, but at the same time I really miss the constant chatterin of her sweet little voice.

Emi got to spend some time at Aunt Jess's today too while mommy and daddy ran to the store. Not 10 mins after we left we get a phone call from my sister askin us how we get her to stop fussing. She tried chaging her, giving her a bottle, feeding her, singing to her and nothing was working. I told to go lay her on the bed and let her fuss. I guess she did because I didn't get anymore phone calls.

I think I am going to take a break from the 30 Day Shred for a couple weeks. I think that combined with the running is just too much for me right now. I have fealt so exhausted lately. I really want to be able to give the C25K everything I have right now. Don't worry I will come back to 30DS soon but right now I think it is the best thing for me.

Nothing new on the Wedding front for now.

I am kind of nervous and kind of excited about Bella starting Kindergarten in about 2 weeks. I'm not sure why I am nervous, I just am. She went to a headstart program here in town last year so she is going to know most of the people in her class. But still, i don't know, maybe it is just the thought that she is going to start real honest to goodness school. Makes me kind of feel old. HaHa.

Ok I think I have wasted enough of your time for tonight.
Later Y'All!!!
