Last week I went and met with the lady from Curves. Im sure this program is a GREAT fit for some people... one of them not being me. I felt awkward, and uncomfortable, and I nervously made small talk while eyeing the front door.
So, new plan 30 day shred round 2! I will once again lay my life in Jillian's hands and allow her to kick my buttverbally attack me mold and shape my body.
Jilly, BRING.IT.ON! But, be gentle, ok?
Today: 30 day shred level 1, 20 mins on the elliptical. (Done!)
No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.
Dear Sweet Cheeks,
My happy baby boy! From the moment you wake up until the moment you close your eyes at night, you are ALL smiles. You smile and laugh and coo all day long. Never a care in the world! (Unless you want a bottle, then you let me know loud and clear!)
This past month has been a busy one. You have learned to pull up on the couch, my legs, your toys, anything within reach! Then you giggle and cackle when you stand on your own two feet. You make mama so proud! We have started letting you put yourself to sleep. I absolutely hate laying you in your crib without first rocking you to sleep, but this is better for you. You sleep better. You sleep longer. I love to go in at night and watch you sleep. You sleep on your stomach, like me. And you have tiny baby snores, like daddy. Except daddy's snores are not near as adorable as yours.
I wish I could freeze time in this moment. Everything in our lives is perfect. You are so full of awe and wonder. I love taking you to run errands with me. I love letting you sit on my lap when we go to restaurants. I love reading you books. I love when you lean over and give me slobbery baby kisses for no reason. I love being your mommy. I love watching you grow.
Sometimes when the room is quiet, and daddy and I are watching you, daddy leans over to me and whispers "We made that". We made YOU. Such a perfect little person. That's something I am sure I will be in awe of until my heart stops beating. You, my little man, are everything I ever wanted. I am so, so lucky you are here with me.
Mr B and I have decided to make one BIG purchase this year for both of our birthdays instead of individual presents. So in a couple of weeks THIS will be in our living room. (Or, something similar. We haven't decided 100% for sure yet)
On a random note: I have heard rave reviews over this lip gloss, so I am going to head to Sephora today(bummer, huh?) and pick some up!
I have been looking into different weight loss plans.
Gyms, Diets, all the new weight loss fads...
I've decided to join Curves. Curves is a weight loss center for women. They help you set up a diet and exercise plan that will work. Since I have a location about 4 miles from my house, and the monthy fee is only $34, I am going to give it a try!
My goal: To lose 15 lbs over the next 2 months. After that, I will set a new goal.
"Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out. But I can usually shut her up with cookies..."
If you have a moment today, please stop by A little pink in a world of camo. She is a 23 year old new mom who lost her husband on Sunday. He was a Marine fighting in Afganistan. If you are the praying type, please say a prayer for her.
& please, hug those close to you a little tighter today.
'I wish' .... I could win the lottery REAL soon, and I wouldINVEST!
If I won the lottery, I would stash quite a bit of money away for my & Mr B's retirement, and Sweet Cheeks college fund.
Part 2 of this is, Would you keep working? Since I stay at home, I wouldn't change that. I wouldn't have to. I could have plenty of money in the bank and spend my days with Sweet Cheeks. (And Mr B!) Doesn't get much better. :) Mr B would probably keep working. He enjoys his job, and he's GREAT at it. Life would continue basically the same way it is now for us, with a more financial security.
"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in being strong when everything else seems to be going wrong. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles" Audrey Hepburn
