First up something I am pretty excited about. I weighed in at 220.2 yesterday. Thats nother 2 pounds gone yall!!! With eating crappy all weekend and having shark week last week. I thinks thats pretty good.
Started the C25K yesterday. It was kind of hard. I wanted to quit half way through but I stuck it out, ran for the full time when I was supposed to and walked when I was supposed to. I really like this prgram...for now...I think this will really help with the weight loss. I am also trying to find the time to start Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. So far the past couple days i haven't been able to make the time. Ahhh the life of being the mother of 2. As long as I am still getting my morning workouts in I'm not supper worried about a second daily workout at the moment, it would just be nice to fit in it before bed.
Now For Some Fun Stuff.
Weekly weight - 220.2
Color of the week - Pure Ice: Hot Tamale
I am really loving this color. I'm not a huge orange fan but this one i could wear all the time.
Quote of the week - "That voice in your head that says you can't do this...IS A LIAR!!"
Well I think that is all for now. Except for a couple pics of my cuties. Later Y'All.

First off I ended up not having to go into work at all today so I was kind of happy about that.
I had a very lazy day today. I didn't get any workouts in today. I feel like shit for it too. But starting tomorrow I am going to hit the ground running...literally. I will be back on my 3 a day workouts. I'm tired of not seeing any results. I need to get uber serious about this if i want to lose the weight before June. I am also going to start trying to eat cleaner, and not near as big of portions of things. I need you all to help keep me acountable for what I am doing. The good, bad, and the ugly you are going to get to read it all hopefully that will get me to stay on track.
In other news, we had D's aunts funeral today. It was pretty boring to say the least. It was all D could do to stay awake during it and both girls did fall asleep. It was longer then any funeral should have ever been. Oh and just so you know I generally hate funerals anyway, too many sad depressing emotions in the air, they always give me a major headache. But I wanted to be there for D and my future mother in law.
Well I think that is all for now. Later Y'All

Last week I finally bought my own scale, I had been using my mothers scale prior to this. Upon getting my new toy home, opening it up, and using it for the first time I discovered that my mothers scale had been lieing to me!!! To be fare this scale is rather old and probably need new batteries. So with that being said, starting this week I am starting over at a starting weight of 224.2 and will only refer to my scale during weigh-ins so as to not right being lied to by a biased scale again.
On Friday evening I happened to notice that Alex FINALLY!!! has her first tooth!!! it only took 8 months to come in, haha. I have a feeling a few more aren't that far behind.
I was going to post up pictures this week but of course my computer decided it doesn't want to read my sd card...ugggg...if its not one thing its another, so it looks like I will probably be getting a new sd card.
I have started a new workout schedule, instead of just 20 mins a day I have decided to up my workouts to 3, 20-30 min a day workouts. My Running first thing in the morning, Zumba sometime in the afternoon, and Yesterday I started the 30 Day Shred. Yes I am now officially a ShredHead. I am loving this new routine. Before this I would do my Run first thing in the morning and then all day I would be itching to get another run in after work but then by the time we had dinner and I got everybody settled and in bed there wouldn't be time for another run. This way I can get a workout in during nap time and I don't have to worry about having someone watch the girls while I run later at night because I can just work out in the comfort of my living room. I think this will be perfect for me and Oh Em Gee!! I love the after-burn of this 30 Day Shred. My arms and legs are shaking so bad when I get done and keep burning for a long while after. I love that I can feel it working already and it has only been 2 days.
So now some fun stuff...
Official weigh in weight for the week...224.2
Inspiration Color of the week>>> Pure Ice - Not Now - it is a totally awesome shade of dark green
Quote for the week>>>"Your Body Can Do Anything...It's Your Brain You Need To Convince.'

Yep thats right...more rain. Don't get me wrong, I'm not exactly complaining. We need the rain, and i love that its not a million degrees outside, it just makes me so tired when the weather is like this, and it means I won't be able to get another workout in tonight. Oh well.
So I am mostly writing this post because i happen to be really bored at the moment. And I kinda have the munchies but i don't want to eat anything else till dinner. Instead I am sipping some apple cinnamon detox water that I found the recipe for on Pinterist. I gotta tell you its better then I expected.
And yes like so many other people recently I am ADDICTED to Pinterist. I keep trying to get my mom onto it but she keeps ignoring me. Her loss.
Well i guess thats all for now. Later Y'all
Ok so I didn't post this last night because i was too upset and didn't want to sound too much like a ranting fool. For those of you that didn't already know this D and I rent from my parents on the same property that their house is on. Anyway last night after I got off work we all went to Killeen to an oriential store thats there. When we got done we decided to eat at IHOP because we hadn't in awhile. There were 9 of us total, we all sat together but we had 2 seperate bills. Did you all knoe that at IHOP there is an 18% gratuity just for having 9 people sit at the same table!!!!!??? We didnt recieve any extra service from any of the other guests. Our waitress only passed by once inbetween giving us our food n giving us our bill, never even asked if anybody needed refills. Now I am generally a gracious tiper. Unless the service really sucks or is totally awesome I leave $5 or 10% whichever is higher. Which is what i was going to leave till i found out about tjat extra 18% added onto the bill. The service wasnt worth 18%. If we had 15-20 people there yah sure i wouldn't be complaining. But we only had 9 and it was 2 seperate bills!! The bill was for mine n Ds food and our drinks, there was a sign in the window that said that kids eat free and the tried to charge us for them. It still cost us way more then it should have, especially since we ordered off the specials menu. Uggg it just pissed me off. Who the heck charges 18%!!!! For 9 people?? IHOP!!! I'll tell you what I am never stepping in an IHOP again. I know this may not seem too bad just reading it but trust me it was more of a "should have been there to compleatly understand" kind of moment.
Ok end of rant... anybody that reads this feel free to let me know your thoughts or opinions on this subject....thats all for now laters Y'all

After the party, D and I went out on date night. this is the first date night we have had in a very long while, normally we have kids and/or other adults with us. We went to eat at the Oscar store (great food by the way) then we were supposed to go to the rodeo. The weather started getting bad so we didnt want to drive that far out so we just enjoyed some quiet time together. Went to Specs n got some drinks and some alcohol infused whipped cream, picked up Alex from my sisters (Boo spent the night there with my niece), came home, put Alex in bed and enjoyed a couple drinks, and some whipped cream. That stuff is awesome but is very Strong!! You really should try some though if you haven't already. I don't think we ended up actually going to bed till 1:30-2ish.
Today was a pretty laid back day. D had to work and everybody else myself included just fealt like being lazy. But its getting late and I am getting up to exercise at 5 am so I better get my butt to bed. Night Y'all

So as I am sitting here watching Alex sleep, praying she doesn't decide to wake up again, and waiting on D to get home i am contimplating the best way to start getting som traffic to my blog. I know I said I didn't set out to be one of the most popular blogs out there, and I didn't. but i would like to know someone has seen it. Oh well I guess all I can do atm is just keep blogging someone will see it someday and hopefully they will be inspired.
Starting tomorrow morning I am back on a strict workout schedule, I have promised myself that I will workout a minimun of 5 days next week, hope to get in 6, and if im really lucky I will be able to get a workout in everyday next week. Monday is my first weigh-in and i am not expecting much of a change since I haven't been very productive this week. I have also set a new goal starting next week, i am going to attempt to give up soda cold turkey. I have found a couple natural favored water recepies on Pinterest that I want to try. Wish me luck on that especially since I LOVE!!!! soda.
Welp its 10:30. I'm guessing D is still busy finishing closing paperwork. I need to get my fat butt to bed if im gonna be getting up at 5am...which I am!!!! Night Y'All :)
Everybody please mentally gibbs me now, today is going to be a really off day. I wasn't able to get my workout in this morning mostly because i didnt get to bed till almost 1am. Between a fussy baby, a sick 5yr old n a worried hubby last night was not a good night. I didnt realize how quickly i would need/depend on that morning workout to jumpstart my day. Plus on top of that I'm drinking a coke first thing this morning i know i know shame on me but i really thought i was gonna need it, i took one sip n now i know i didnt. I am going to try n make it last most of the workday though n i promised myself this would be the last one for awhile. Well wish me luck for the rest of the day. Have a great one y,all.

Just so everybody knows I am actually starting this blog after I started my journey. I was just going to journal everything, all my thoughts, accomplishments, actions, habits, everything when I realized that I would feel more accountable if i put that all down where who knows how many people would possibly see it. Yes that thought is pretty scarry but if what i write helps to motivate even one person, to me that will be worth it in the long run. So please sit back and enjoy the ride and welcome to my life. :)
P.S. For the saftey and privacy of all my family and friends, the only Full name that will be used in this blog will be mine, all other names are nicknames that we do use in our everyday lives. Thanks Anna
