Still in a one piece...

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

My hubby's sister is in town for a whole week. So that means alot f munching and family gatherings during the week. She is married with 4 kids so when ever she is here, we have a lot of fun! Anyway...we decided to take the kids to the pool today. And well, yesterday I decided to go check out some bathing suits. i didn't have much time so I only stopped at walmart lol.

Yeah... I still don't feel good with a 2 piece! I feel bad, I was doing so good a couple of months ago, I had somewhat decent looking abs, now they are gone! I have been slacking. After taking this pictures I realized I needed to weigh myself.and yes.. I gained! I'm at 159lbs. I've gained 4-5 lbs. Not very happy today....

I'm frustrated because I don't want to let myself go again. I can't! As soon as I get off work I'm doing my workout. I can't let another day pass by. Sunday was rest day, but I missed yesterday. Anyway, I was just hoping this two piece would fit. I love tie dye, but I guess not yet. I bought a one piece. I didn't take a pic of that one. I wasn't in a good mood after seeing myself in this one lol.

ANyway....here I am.

    Hola amiga..No creo que esas libras sean grasa..pueden ser agua o estres o puede ser que "el amigo" viene. No te preocupes. Yo todavia veo definicion en tus abdominales, y te ves muy bien en mi opinion. Yo estoy esperando que mis abdominales sean como los tuyos! Tu tienes un cuerpo MUY bonito y esta en MUY BUENA FORMA. Yo se que vas a seguir adelante con tus ejercicios y con cuidandote. Has hecho y estas haciendo MUY BIEN!! emoticon emoticon

    You'll get them back!! YOu need to stay focused!! Have fun with your family- but stay true to yourself!!! Don't throw all your hard work away! Make a plan and stick to it! Get on the Buddy system and set some weekly goals!! Get involved girl friend- we are here for YOU!

I would have bought the suit and used it as leverage to get control of your eating! Besides, when you get to the beach- everybody who isn't ashamed don't look as good as you. (easier said then done... I still probably would have worn my one piece! Its hard being self conscious!!!)

Hey did you find a one piece at walmart!! I am looking for one for my daughter- and its so late in the year! I am gonna go take a look!

Nice hearing from you STRANGER!! LOL!

So what did I wear to the pool?

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Remember I told you guys I was going to take a short nap, then workout, then the pool?

We'll I took a very long naP! Hubby didn't wake me up. So as soon as I got up we got ready and went to the pool. We were there for less than an hour because they were closing early!!! (and I took too long of a nap... oops)

ANyway...So I decided on my old one piece. It was big on me. Specially on my boobs, but it was wearable. I felt comfortable. I didn't feel the need to cover up. So I might be getting a new one piece that fits. I like how I feel and look in a one piece. I did almost have an accident though (Kat...it almost happened). My son pulled on the top part and since its strapless...well it almost went all the way down. luckly I grabbed it in time and I was facing like the wall so no one would have seen! But it was close.


After the pool we went to grab dinner, and we got a salad! :D GOt home changed and did my workout! We kicked some butt emoticon! It was Kenpo karate so lots of kicks and punches. THen I took a shower, washed the dishes, took out the trash, mop and swept the bathroom and kitchen. Went to bed... and couldn't sleep. I had to get up from bed cuz I just couldn't. Yup, that is what happens to me when I sleep too much during the day which I did. So i watched a movie, The Color Purple, with Oprah and Whoppi, loved it, really good movie. Anyway...I went to bed like at 4 am. GOt up at 6:30....so I am tired. Glad I get to rest today from workout!


Here are a couple of pics! Hubby and son (he wasn't too happy we had to leave early lol). ** Sorry...my eyes are too tired to rotate pics... ;(

Mango cupcake with a side of pool

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Today is super hot, like it has been lately. So...we are going to the public pool. I don't even know how to swim, but at least I'll cool off and get some sun. I'm gonna take a nap (short one), do my workout, and then head out to the pool.

I didn't work out on Monday ( I had really bad cramps), but we did yesterday! :D So I don't want to mess up the rest of the week.

Yesterday I was feeling adventurous so I decided on a unique cupcake recipe. I made some Mango cup cakes with whipped cream cheese frosting, mango puree and mango chunks for garnish. I have to say without the frosting they are okay. good. normal. With all that stuff they are delicious. Very different recipe, but oh so good (if you like mango of course).

On another note, no updates on my dad. He needs another MRI, apparently the one they took doesn't show clearly what is that mass they see in between his disks. SO tomorrow we have to go take him to the hospital to get another one done, and wait. Sucks. We're just trying to cheer him up, there isn't much we can do, but that and wait.


***edited to add: I have no idea what I am wearing to the pool. I'm still so self conscious. I have one piece, I'm sure it'll fit big. And I am not brave enough to wear a 2 piece, there might be a lot of people there...but its wednesday so I doubt it..but it's a small town... Omg..Sorry I'm just rambling here...

Here is the mango cupcake pic (I took this pic myself!)

    Don't wear the "too big" suit... it might fall off - then you'd REALLY be self-conscious!! emoticon

Anniversary cupcake

Friday, July 17, 2009

Yesterday, like I mentioned before was my wedding anniversary. I had no plans for baking a big cake, I wanted cupcakes. Lately I've been really excited about cupcakes. So I wanted to try something new, and I made this S'mores cupcake recipe I found a couple weeks ago.

It was delicious. Just had 1 1/2. My parents loved them and my hubby did too. So that is what counts! My hubby had like 4!

We went for lunch (steak, veggies, and mashed potatoes, I didn't finish the potatoes and drank water :D)
Went to the movies, watched Brüno (Borat was better btw), and did some underwear shopping. My bras are big now. So i had to get new smaller size... it's a good thing...but not that good lol! Oh well. I rather be thinner than have more boobs.

Today I'll finish a baby shower cake for tomorrow. I'll post them tomorrow probably. Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend. Tomorrow morning (7am) I have to take my son to a health fair or something like that, he needs to get some shots... emoticon Hope he doesn't freak out on me. And later like around 1pm I"ll deliver the cake.

Here is the cupcake! I love this picture....my hubby took it!

    Those cupcakes look awesome! I'm glad that things went well for your anniversary and that your husband loved the cupcakes. :) Congratulations on needing new bras because they are too big. There are worse things I'm sure then needing to go down a cup size LOL. Hopefully things go well with your son's health fair and the cake delivery. :) Keep up the great work!

I'm back....

Thursday, July 16, 2009

THe weekend was fun. A very long drive but well worth it. I always enjoy going to my sis's house during this time of the year because it's monsoon season..but for some reason the last couple of years the rain just seems to run away from me. Yeah...not funny. You see, were I live, it hardly EVER rains. And I love rain. A few days before we got there my brother in law told us they had a huge storm, they were without electricity for like 5hours! I was excited. When we got there...clouds started to go away. When I was leaving they came back and a day after I left, they had a big storm! emoticon So I saw no rain...next time.

My sister lives in RIo RICo AZ, lots of hills not a lot of roads lol. So we took walks on Saturday and Sunday's morning. I tried doing a bike ride of the same route and man...it was SO SO HARD. yeah..not trying that again. Saturday I burned 450 cals and Sunday 329. I did eat badly but at least I did something.

Tomorrow is my 4th wedding anniversary. We are planning on maybe going to the movies dinner who knows. I am baking a new cupcake recipe though we'll see how that goes.

It is confirmed, I'm doing a quinceañera(like a sweet 16) cake in Sept, along with a dessert table! I'm going to see a couple on Friday for a wedding in Nov for 400+ people, yikes!!! I'm excited! It seems I'm getting lots of calls lately! It's been hard too since I am also trying to finish my 2nd associates in business administration. But I know I can do it. I'll be done with 2 courses in 3 weeks! I am getting financial aid for my classes next semester! yeah!!! so I don't have to charge my credit card.

My dad is still in pain. We are still waiting for the specialist's appointment. It is so frustrating you have no idea. I hate insurance companies. I hate them. My dad seems to be abit more calm. He realizes whatever it is, we got see what we can do to solve it, if it means surgery than so be it. he is a strong man and I know he will pull through. He just turned 62 and he had a physical test done like 2 months ago they told him he was in great great condition for his age. (he's always worked physical jobs so he gets a workout). I just wish this whole process would go faster.

I'll post of pics of my creations probably friday or saturday....

Here are some pics of the walks we took...yup...those are some steep hills! And see those clouds? yup they were coming when I was leaving. I don't think they like me much. Oh and those cute dogs...they are all my sister's! I just want to keep one! That brown puppy is adorable! She was so sweet...too bad they are big dogs (Siberian husky)and I can't keep them in my small apartment!!!

Some pics of my son and niece, and then a couple from my dad's birthday on the 2nd. Oh and one of my sis and I, yeah...I tend to be the silly one! At least I was watching the road! Oh and that ugly centipede we found in the garage.. I swear it's like a zoo whenever I go visit, I always see something new! love Rio Rico, AZ!

Happy Anniversary! I wish you lived by me- I'd have you make my cake! Its looks so amazing! How do you get the to look so tall? Maybe email me and tell me :) It looks so good!!
