I recently made a funky binder for recipes with cool dividers, pockets, paper…fashioned after a gift my suster got which was expensive, like $40 or so. I got all the same stuff and assembled my own from W.almart for like $14..yay me!

so I skipped a weeks worth of workouts, due to not feeling well and the days I did Chase got up at 5 and Walker didn’t bother getting him. seriously pissing me off in the process.

Despite that because of the way i have strictly stuck to my healthier eating choices i still lost a bit of weight.  So in 2 weeks, with only 7 workouts I lost 6lbs and 4 inches. yay! I worked out yesterday and will take a bike ride with Anders tonight. its amazing how a few lbs off on a scale can motivate you and help your spirits all in one…of course if I don’t work out it won’t last longer than a few days.

I was wondering if anyone in the North East has seen summer? If so can you call him and tell him he forgot a spot. Its rained 19 days of of 23 in June…we’re due for rain tonight and tomorrow…supposedly this weekend will be sunny and 80’s…I will believe it when I see it…

My MIL used to make me 15 mins late everyday for work, understandable she was working as a crossing guard…now that she’s off she’s still showing uplast minute…um hello 15 minutes loses me an hour and fifteen minutes of pay a week…so now I must say something. Also I took Mondays off (using my 10 vacation days) all summer. Walker told me she seemed upset cause she’ll miss a day with Chase…she’s a piece of work. I told her that would be beach or pool day and with 2 kids I will def require her help weeks ago…she really is an ass.

it’s so hard to find the time for me and to work out. Someone always needs something. So I have been getting up at 5:30 am (on near no sleep most days) and going biking, running or doing a Jillian dvd if its crappy out. I find that Tues and Weds I can not get up OR if I can Chase is up, or whatever. I can’t even have 30 fucking minutes to myself. Walker can go to softball every tuesday and leave me with both kids, sometimes a double header or he lingers to chat and have a beer or two with his buddies. thus leaving me with baths and bed for both boys. Anders hasn’t been feeling well and Chase has been a little demanding the past few days. I couldn’t even give Anders the proper attention and care he needed last night and then Chase barely slept…what a fucking mess.

on a good note last week I managed to lose 2lbs and 4 inches altogether hips, thighs, belly and arms. The changing to healthier food and red meat only once a week has been tough but I’m doing well.

mega brows!

motto: not waxing since 1982!

my comment on a friends blog regarding ridiculous outfits father (or mothers) have subjected their children to:

um, not by my doing but Anders used to go out in public in FULL spiderman costume all year long age 4 and 5, I let him, whatever, he’d shoot imaginary webs at cars on the road next to us, crawl sneakily through quick check when i stopped for coffee, karate chop random garden plants in neighborhood gardens during a walk. these days (8 1/2 yrs old) he made me buy this pack of “mega brows”.  it has in it a black unibrow, a set of red “angry scottish” eye brows and a set of “albert einstein gray mustache” sized brows. He proceeded to tell my sister and i we have to wear them on the car ride home, so we did. and every day since he has asked at some point in the day to wear “his unibrow” and even goes outside in it…kids…it’s not just Dad’s making them look ridiculous anymore ha haha

ok so here’s the one I have been trying to write before I was so wonderfully distracted by the last 2 posts.

I am done feeling sorry for myself. I am done crying everytime I have to get dressed to leave the house and I am tired of my supermom costume being so tight I can’t even entertain putting it on. I mean maybe the cape fits but who wants to be saved by a naked post partum woman with a jiggly midsection and scars? ha ha ha

so here’s the plan:

  1. set attainable and small goals; 1lb a week, exercise at least 15 to 30 mins a day for 4 days a week, count calories and make better food choices.
  2. stop taking care of everyone but myself. make the time for me, demand the time for me get the time for me. all this = everyone happy cause I am happy
  3. believe that you can lose 11 to 15 lbs by August 15. it’s easy, you can do it, and it will make you feel better, your clothing will fit and you’ll not fear sex so much that you bring the baby to bed every night to not only sleep but avoid that man that sleeps across the way.
  4. DO NOT buy anymore clothing until you drop the weight, it will only serve to bring you down a notch. tighter clothes are motivating, evil and spiteful, but motivating
  5. tell the people in your house what you are doing, ask that they support and help you without pointing out negatively if you skip a day or eat that Mc.Donalds when pressed for time (try not to eat Mc.Donalds).
  6. I posted the chart with my weight, inches and weeks on the large bathroom mirror for ALL To see, even guests (if that doesn’t motivate me I’ll make the fridge oink or moo instead).
  7. I will be taking a before and after picture and posting it on here (at the end), I am brave aren’t I? its all about motivators. showing my jiggly nastiness is SO not appealing but even less appealing if I don’t pull through and have to post a gross pic at the end.

the changes aren’t drastic or hard, they’re small changes, lifetime, lifestyle changes, not a diet. I’m not 23 anymore, which is just fine with me. I’m smarter now, wiser…so at 32 I will be a better me and stay that way.

my beginning weight 125 (shut up, its “small” for most) it is the most I have weighed in my life I’m 5 feet tall. I weighed 145 and 140 during pregnancy  which doesn’t count. at 18 I weighed 98lbs (yea it is gross I agree, but I was VERY active) I weighed 103 after Anders 8 years ago, and I weighed 115 and was not happy about it February of 2008 before Chase. I am not greedy, I’d rather lose inches than lbs, and I am ok with being and staying 110 to 115 as long as I’m fit and toned, and my clothes fit.

So sunday I weighed in at 125, let the games begin.
