FAF: 5 LBS ~ That's a small sack of potatoes people! :o)

Starting weight: 166.4
Last week's weight: 162.8
Current weight: 161.4
Weight +GAIN / -LOSS this week: -1.4
Total weight lost: -5

I've lost 5 whole pounds!! Yay me! 21.4 to go!!

I can't feel super excited about my continued 1-lb-a-week weight loss because I only worked out once this week and have a sneaking suspision I'm only losing muscle mass instead of actual fattyness...but I'm not going to dwell on that thought because...I'VE LOST 5 POUNDS :o)

Still cutting the portions sizes though and I now feel like major poo whenever I eat a normal sized meal so I think that means my stomach is finally shrinking [yay!!].

I've been taking my thyroid meds like I'm supposed to but a friend told me it takes 4-6 weeks to really tell a difference so, we'll see in a few more weeks!

Happy dieting y'all!


My baby went from this:

To This:

HOW? WHAT? HUH?...What the hell just happened?! Where did the last 8 months go...? Seriously, 8 months?? (Momma's havin' a hard time with this one, can't you tell?)

I'm going to have an early walker on my hands. Braz is becoming a pro at standing up (while holding on to furniture) and he's getting braver and braver with letting go. Soon he'll be standing on his own without holding on! He's started eating solid foods - started him with some puffs and veggie "cheetos". He has had some green beans from my plate and some grapes (minus the skin of course). He's starting to learn how to drink from his tippy cup - I had to take the plug out that keeps it from spilling because he wasn't getting the tip & suck part. He still doesn't hold his own bottle but being a breastfed baby I don't think that's unusual. I'm just going to skip that though and go straight to the cup.

I haven't really noticed h…

Another week of weight loss! Whoop! Its not much but after another slow exercising week, I'll GLADLY take it! I'm very close [again] to what I weighed when I got knocked up with my pwecious little man so I'm feeling good about that fo' sho'...
Working out this week has been rough. I haven't really made/had time for a good solid workout so I'm a little disappointed about that, I'll just keep squeezing them in there whenever I can and as much as I can. We have a gym membership over by my usual sitter so once she's off maternity leave, I'll be able to run to the gym at night before or after I pick up the monster.
My diet this week has been unhealthy - not in what I've eaten, just the quantity. I've hardly eaten a thing! My dinner portions have been cut in half, if not more, so I feel that's a positi…

FAF: Fiber One Bars Warning!!

Starting weight: 166.4
Last week's weight: 164.6

Weight +GAIN / -LOSS this week: -0.8
Total weight lost: -2.6

Slow and steady wins the race I guess. I'm not going to complain - I haven't had that great of a week eating wise and haven't worked out for a couple days cause I was sick yesterday and the night before. So, I'll take the not.quite.a.pound weightloss. I had a doctor's appt today and fought back the urge to order some diet pills. I may or may not kick my self in the knee for that decision but I might as well give it a try doing it the right/healthy/slow way for a while before I give in to temptation. I'm into instant gratification people so this is tough for me. [Pats self on back] I did have 3 great workouts this week so "go me". I need to eat healthier.

Note to anyone on a diet out their - do not, I repeat, DO NOT eat 2 Fiber One bars in one day. Limit yourself. Gas ball the size of an suv will show up in your gut and t…

Brazi & Daddy Weekend

Daddy & I got to spend all night Saturday night and all day Sunday just the two of us guys while Mommy was down visiting Caroline & Aunt Heather. Daddy took lots of pictures to send to Mommy because she missed us so much!

I love standing! I practiced lots this weekend standing on whatever I could get my hands on.

You can't see it very well but Daddy and I snuggled in bed and watched TV Sunday morning - we just took this pic to make Mommy jealous and miss us even more!

More Standing! I can stand up in my bed now too - you guys better lower my bed soon or I'm going to make a break for it in the middle of the night when you are asleep...

Daddy & I lookin' snazzy heading to IHOP (More pictures to make sappy Mommy miss us!)

First time eating pancakes - these things are great! Mmmmm!

Going on a walk with Daddy. Laid back enjoying a cold one...this is the life!

Playing with the Gemma - I love my puggy!!

Ok Mommy, Daddy & I are really starting to miss you! Hurry Home!

I thi…

Princess has had a little bit of a rough start - diagnosed with pneumonia the day after she was born and has to be on antibiotics and stay in the hospital for a week. She's absolutely beautiful and her mommy and I are already planning future shopping trips just us girls!! I finally got to meet her this weekend and she so tiny and petite and just precious. Ready for her to get a clean bill of health so she and her mommy can come home! So very excited to finally have a NIECE again after so many boys. Hopefully I will get to play with her more than I get to play with my other nieces... Tea Party and dress up, anyone? :o) I can't wait!

Hmmm...I think I need to go talk to my hubs about having a baby girl... Toodles!

A Day of Fun with Leah & Drake

We've had some babysitter drama in our household and thankfully my dear friend shared her nanny for a week while she was on an off-week of traveling for work. She was in and out as well so one morning she got to stay home and play with the boys. I got several pics from their day:

"After breakfast the boys fought over the sports section."

"Then we went for a nice stroll in the wagon."

"After a refreshing break our creative juices were going so we had art time."
"Than it was splash time!!!"

"The boys relaxed to some nick and speed racing!!"

Thank you so much Leah for ALL your help last week!!!! And for having so much fun with Braz - He LOVED playing with Drake. :o)

I don't have to go to coney island after all!

About time! I've had to starve myself the last few days to get here but hopefully this means my mysterious weight gain issue is going away. I'm not getting my hopes up just yet... But almost 4 lbs lost - I will GLADLY take it over +2 lbs. If I stay at this weight loss, only 6.579 weeks to go! Have to stay positive, right? :o) While that would be totally awesome, I better not count on 3.8 lbs every week.

One proud moment this week for me: I am back up to running 2 miles - WITH. OUT. STOPPING. Go me. [Even though some rude crazy mean old hag yelled at me because I was out running with Braz at 7:30 pm around my neighborhood and she "couldn't see me" even though she flashed her brights at me from a block away... Gah , make me feel like a horrid mother why don't you...some people have an 1 1/2 commute to and from work, and their husband…

Just put me next to the Bearded Lady on Coney Island...

All I'm going to say is this is total Bull$hit. Tune in next week to see the {FREAK SHOW} that is my mystifying, unexplainable, horrifying weight gain.

The End.
