Greetings to those viewing this blog!

So, I haven't been on this page in quite some time!!! I was so busy at the beginning of this year with working 2 jobs, AND doing 20 credits at school, so I had NO time for myself, my fiance, let alone getting online unless it was for school work!

Little updates since then:
I FINALLY graduated with my associates degree in Human Services in May, but I am going back for winter semester to get my certificate in Substance abuse counseling, then from there I will be starting my bachelors degree in the fall of 2014!

I found out I was pregnant on Feb 20!! It took us awhile to get used to the fact that we were going to be parents, but we are super excited, he is our little blessing baby (especially being told that it would be a 1 in a million chance that I could ever get pregnant!)
We are expecting our little boy, whose name will be Silas Matthew on October 13 SOOOOO CLOSE!!

After Joshua got offered his own store in Manchester ( the town i grew up in!) and finding out I was pregnant, we decided to take the leap and move from the city (ann arbor) to the country (Manchester) as it is a better quality of life for our little boy!

Due to complications my exercising and losing weight came to a screeching halt, but i will do anything to keep my son safe. I lost 40 lbs in the beginning of this pregnancy, and here I am 37 weeks, and I havent gained anything! which is good and doctors have kept an eye on it my little buttercup is safe and healthy as can be!:)

So anyway, I plan on "jumping back on the horse" so to speak with exercising and training for the color run next year! can't wait to start exercising again!! :)

Hey all!

So i just had a meeting with my doctor and needless to say it didnt go all that well.... I broke down in alligator tears! :(

So, my doctor suggested the weightloss surgery.. which I have thought about, but at the same time i have gone through 7 surgeries I really dont wanna go through another one! :( plus it is expensive to keep up with afterwards, and i am worried that with all the loose skin i will start getting rashes and infections and what not, I know that insurance will cover plastic surgery if its medically necessary but i just dont know..
so anyway!
She also suggested adipex.. she said that there is a lot of risk, and she would need to see me everymonth if I decide to get on it.. but she has 6 patients on it so far, and they have been losing a lot of weight and doing a great job! so i have considered the adipex

can anyone tell me if they have been on it and if it worked or didnt and what i could expect etc etc! I am doing as much research as i can on this drug as well!

Hey all..

Apperently, my go 2 when I am stressed and depressed and just don't know what to do is fast food and pop... (coke to be specific)

Quitting pop and fast food is proving to be really difficult.. grrr!!!
pop and fast food literally the past 3 days... I am sure I am gaining..

what does everyone else do when they are depressed or sad or stressed or whatever instead of going to food or pop....

    I've started walking my dog. Can you get a pet? Cuddly creatures are helpful. Or I drink some tea and take a few deep breaths, read to distract myself, watch a funny show, etc.

New Years Resolutions..

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Good afternoon everyone!!

I hope you all had an awesome New years!!

So, its that time of year again.....I have had numerous people have asmed me what my new years resolution is.. Sarcastically I would say I am not making a new years resolution... when asked why I would reply with its simple.. I fail at them, there is no reason in making one when I don't EVER stick with it! but.... now that i think more and more about it I have quite a few..
I am determined for 2013 to be successful in my weight loss.... I am trying to pick a resonable amount of weight to lose by my 22nd birthday (july 11th!) So, if anyone can help me out with that i would love any pointers!

My new years resolutions:

2) NO SODA ( my anxiety has been twice as bad due to the amount of caffiene I have been consuming)
3) exercise at least 5x a week...

So these are more like goals, but i mean whatever... THIS WILL HAPPEN!!! 2013 IS MY YEAR!

That being said, what is everyone elses new yr resolutions

good website?

Hey everyone!

Hope you all enjoyed your holidays!!! :)

I am feeling pretty good. Joshua bought me grease dance for the ps3 so i just did 30 minutes of that and i did a 30 minute cardio kickstart workout on my active2 personal trainer game...

So, I know the only way to accurately get a good sense of what i burnt while i played grease dance is to get moniter.. however I just can't afford one of those right now.. so does anyone know of any good websites where I can caluclate how many calories i burnt while working out?

    You probably already know, but on the SP Fitness page, under browse, there are tons of different exercises, activities listed. I think you could find something there that would be pretty similiar. Just a thought! Good going! Wow, I'm so proud of you!
