Today is the day...I went and got my IUD removed. Pleasantly surprised at how easy and painless it was. Found it humerous that the nurse wanted to show it to me. Like I wouldn't believe her it was out? Anyway, just have had a little cramping but that is it so far. Always glad to have those kind of appointments out of the way, not my favorite thing to go do. But the nurse was pleased at my weight loss so far and told me to keep up what I was doing. My blood pressure was also normal which was awesome because I developed hypertension during my first pregnancy that carried over into my second and my doctor thought it might be chronic. I have to say I haven't kept up on getting it checked out or anything so I am pleased that it is normal again! All in all a good visit (considering!), now we'll just wait and see:)

Wow, what an amazing weekend we had! I think it was the first weekend (besides vacation) that my husband has had off since we had the kids. We had the best time on 4th of July. We took the kids to McD's for lunch, they just LOVE to play there. Then we took them to visit with their cousin before heading up to grandma and grandpa's house. There they got to swim, play croquet, run around with the other kids, and see fireworks for the first time. They though Pop-Its where amazing:) All in all it was a great time for all of us. Now that hubby's schedule is changing to where he will have several Sundays off a month we decided to start looking for a church. We went to one in Post Falls, ID on Sunday and LOVED it! The kids both had a great time in their kids classes and we loved the service. We are excited to go back this week. Then we went out to lunch and BBQ'd in the evening. It was such a great time and I just feel blessed that things have opened up for us to have more weekends like this. In fact, part of hubby's new schedule gives him 7 days off at a time each month and that starts this Friday. So we are planning to take the kids to their first movie, go to the lake, and take them to Greenbluff to pick fresh fruit and play. Should be so much fun:) Now I just need to find balance with all that fun and keeping myself in check. This past weekend I did not get in any workouts and didn't track my food. I got right back on it yesterday but with more of these weekends coming up I am going to have to learn to still make good choices while out and about. It's all a learning process, but one I am glad to take on~~

Any of you who read my status yesterday saw that I was just crabby ALL day. It wasn't any one thing. It was really just one small thing on top of another. I have been doing so good with letting things slide, not use any excuses to get off track. But not yesterday. Despite the start to my day I had planned to get in my workout during the boys nap. But Nathan refused to sleep and kept requiring my attention and so I never got that time. I think that was the breaking point. From there, we decided to eat out for dinner and I way over did it. So no workout and too much food. Not a good combination. I am disappointed in myself for giving in to my mood. I have made a 30 day commitment to workout each day and not go over calories and I doubly ruined it yesterday on my two week mark. Despite that, I will not quit. I am taking all that I am feeling, disappointment especially, and using it to make today better. I decided to make up for yesterdays bootcamp which I just did, kids crawling around me and everything! I am also going to get in my 50 minutes of cardio and my regular bootcamp video for the day. I may not have exactly kept up with the terms of my self challenge but the way I look at it, I can let that get the best of me or I can learn from it and move on. Today is a new day, I plan to make the best of it. And I will finish out the last 2 weeks STRONG!
