Week 1 Weigh In

For now I have chosen Mondays as my weigh in day. i have a feeling I will change that pretty soon because my cheat day will most likely be on the weekend.

I know I was crazy to start right before the holiday of eating, but I felt like I needed to start right away, I couldn't hold off because I am so unhappy with myself. I am actually considering pictures, and if I decide yes, I will just edit this post and add them. I haven't been happy with my weight since I had Jayden, I am not comfortable in my clothes, and sure as hell am not comfortable out of my clothes. The first couple days on this diet were not that bad, I did really well Mon-Wed. I knew I was going to let Thursday be a free day, and I did. The part that is hard for me is going to restaurants. Husband and I like to go out to eat. We went to Mexican food and I got Chicken Fajitas, those are a pretty good choice but..... they were so good I ate way too much.

Over all I have mixed feelings about my first week. I think I did good considering the holiday weekend, but I didn't need that chocolate cake at the base party, and I didn't need to eat so many chips at Guadalajara. But I did resist candy for our movie Saturday night, and I also lost even though it was a holiday weekend centered around eating.

So here it goes...........

Starting weight on Nov. 22nd: 184
Weigh in on November 29th: 180

Down four pounds my first week! Oh and by the way my short term goal is 15 pounds, long term is 30.

What am I thankful for?

There is so much I could put on this list. First and Foremost I am thankful for my daughter....

I love this picture because I just see her personality radiating here. She is so silly and happy. She loves to dance and even tries to sing. She is so independent and loves to read. Books are probably her favorite thing, well besides Violet. She is so social, not shy at all. I am just so thankful for every second I get to be with her.

I am also Thankful for the rest of my family. A great husband who is able to provide so I can stay home with my daughter. 2 sets of wonderful grandparents for my little girl. Wonderful friends who keep in touch and new friends to keep me sane. Thanksgiving with friends, and Christmas with family.

And most of all I am Thankful for my health and the health of my friends and family. I can only hope to have another year with as many blessings.

Here we go again

I'm doing this weight loss thing again. I want to say that this time is different, and this time I'm going to change my lifestyle. But the truth is I have zero faith in myself for this. So I have decided to take this one day at a time. And hopefully I wont get too overwhelmed.

I plan on doing weight watchers and working out at least 3 times a week. I would like to lose 15 pounds and would love to lose 30. We shall see.

Shutterly Rocks!

I have been saving up my pampers points in hopes of getting our Christmas cards this year from Shutterfly. Last year we got them at the local drug store and I wasn't impressed. The quality wasn't very good, and they were off center. But I keep swooning over their site wishing I could get a calender and a photo book. But Shutterfly just made my decision a lot easier! All I have to do is mention them on my blog, and they are giving away 50 free photo cards from their Holiday Collection. 

We will be getting family pictures done this weekend, hopefully we will get at least one good picture of the three of us. And there are a ton of Jayden that I love already. These photo cards are a great way for us to keep our family updated on how big Jayden is getting since we live so far away.

Now I just have to decide which one I want...
Decisions, decisions.........
which one do you like?

I need help

I literally cannot think of one thing to write about. That's why I haven't posted anything recently. If anyone still reads this, (I will be amazed) please ask me something, anything, or give me an idea. I can't think of anything!
