Good news, bad news.

Bad news first.
I have no clue how this happened.  Well yes I do. I get to loose on the weekends. Which goes into the week, which is really hard to snap out of.    My focus has been on other things.  My oldest started K4 yesterday, and my boys are starting gymnastics. Oh and I turned 27 yesterday as well! 

I was a bit depressed yesterday because one, my baby is a big boy.  And two, I am another year older.  And three, I am lacking nutrients and can feel it.  I feel tired, sluggish, depressed, not able to focus, and have been fighting a cold for a week.  I am up on the scale. So I refuse to "weigh in" on Friday.  I was also spiritually malnourished.  I had a busy last 5-6 days and didn't get great quality time with the Lord.  Which really wears on me emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.  I enjoyed praying and reading my bible this morning and feel better. Except for the left over cheesecake I ate.  whoops.

For my birthday my hubs and boys took me to Forever 21 (use to be the dreaded store, but now I can fit into their "normal" sizes!!!). After shopping we got Rubio's. YUM. Then cheesecake for my birthday cake.  Can you say, a bazillion calories? 

I need a clean slate. I haven't had to refocus like this in a while, but I need a jump start or something. 

I have a goal, which is to be 179 exactly one month from today, I'm in my sister in laws wedding. Which brings me to my good news.  We went dress shopping Saturday for my bridesmaid dress and GUESS WHAT. I fit into a size 12 (did you hear me??) SIZE 12 dress! Yes it zipped and everything! Ok, so maybe it hugged my buns a little too much but what evs.  The dress we ended up buying, my sis in law found on the clearance rack. There was only ONE.  And it was a Medium.  It was perfect. Perfect color, style, everything.  But we weren't too hopeful it would fit.  BUUUUTTTTT, IT DID! Whoot! And it was only $12! a little tight in the bust, but I am hoping to lose 10 pounds by then, and it's great motivation. 

Glad I blogged today. Needed to get all this out.  I need to blog more. It helps me stay focused.  Also need to read all my favorite blogs!!!!

Lately the Lord has really been teaching me that, He gave me my boys, my little treasures, to do great things for Him. Not to raise them to be mediocre, but to be champions, to have great influence for Him.   The Lord created me to be the mom to my boys. I LOVE having all boys.  Yes I want a girl, but I also want another boy. 

I've been reading "Through My Eyes" Tim Tebow's biography, and it is AMAZING.  Every mom of boys should read.  We are huge Tebow fans. :)

I'll be back in a couple days.  Say a prayer for me that I get my hiney in order! Let's face it, time is ticking and I ain't gettin any younger. I want another baby, and I want it to be another boy! Or girl. I would be so happy with either.  Don't worry Grandma, I'm NOT pregnant {and I won't be any time soon}! ;-)

But I'm a bridesmaid & I don't want to be the FAT one. Even though I still will be. Ack. Anyways, I bought a size MEDIUM yesterday! I feel great. Hungry, but great. Hehe. Not always hungry just right now. Gotta run! Driving 5 hours w just me & the boys! Thank You Jesus for helping me!

Weigh In & Dumb Internet!

Last week: 192.7
Today: 191.8
Loss- .9

Not as good as I hoped, but considering I have a clogged duct and excess weight {if you know what I mean} I'm ok with that.  And yes, still clogged milk duct, or infected Mammatory (is that the word?) gland. Pure pain. But next week, NEXT WEEK, I am praying to hit the 180's!!!! Wouldn't that be nice.

So my friend informed me that she googled "clogged milk duct" and under the images there was my sweet baby Reece!!! Stupid internet took my image from my last post and associated it with clogged milk duct. Apparently they can take any image they want.  I deleted the picture from my post but it STILL shows up on google! I feel so violated. I won't be posting pictures of my boys on here anymore I don't think.  Maybe I'll make a private picture account somehow.

I'm pretty upset with myself right now. Last night I made the mistake of going to the grocery store hungry.  I bought some cookies, chips and a lemon cake. Bad, bad, bad.  Last night I had a salad and half a roll. Weigh in was in the morning, I wasn't gonna blow it yet! As soon as I weighed myself I had a piece of the lemon cake. Blah. Want. To. Barf. Just have to record it, and move on!

I mentioned in my last post that I don't do well on the weekends, then Monday I struggle to back on track, then Tues-Thurs I am focused.  And for the most part I've been losing consistently. I wonder how I'd do if I did well Sat-Thursday! I am determined to do it this week.  I also haven't worked out in a couple months {hangs head in shame}.  But you know what? I have 3 little boys, a husband and a house that keeps me moving.  I sweat everyday {probably just the intense desert heat}.  Cleaning my house is a work out.  Ok ok, no excuses. But I'm actually fine with it. For now.  I am itching to run, just NOT in this 106 heat. My poor husband works outside all day.  I have NO clue how he does it.  He truly is a beast of a man. And pretty cute too. ;p

HERE'S TO THE 180'S!!! Then the 170' I can do this!

Weigh In & Catch up

Fewwww it's been a whirlwind of a summer!

Previous weigh in: 194.2
Last weigh in (7-31-12) 192.7

Yay for an all time low (this time)! I have been soooo busy! We went to Morgan Hill AGAIN just so I could do photo shoots. I've done 5 in the last week, and have another this Friday. Busy busy, blessed blessed!
I am having a hard time staying on track over the weekends. So Monday seems to be the day I struggle to get back on track, then Tuesday-Thursday I'm pretty focused.
I have really changed though! While so busy with photography last weekend, in between shoots I was starving and thought I should get some lunch. I didn't want any fast food though! Now that I know what's in the stuff, especially the beef, I don't even want to risk it. So I just waited and ate at my moms. Change!
We have good news! The church here in Lancaster asked my husband to stay! Also, we were offered the job in Santa Maria! Wow! God is so good. We are praying A LOT. We will have the big news soon.
I'm torn. I love it here, and have many friends. It is THE best church in America! But we also loved the church in Santa Maria. It's closer to what we want to do eventually (church plant) and it's by the beach. But it's very expensive to live. We need God's wisdom!!!!
Bummer- I have a clogged milk duct. Oh my PAIN! It hurts so bad. Trying to nurse through it.
Here's a pic of last weekend. Reece 8 months and my niece Lexi 6 months. How adorable is this picture!!!!
