I can't believe that 3 years ago, right after the birth of my son I started this journey! I was over 250 pounds, unhealthy, unhappy, and scared for the journey ahead of me.
Me right before my son was born. I was so uncomfortable at my baby shower. I had to rig on some maternity pants!
Now I had two babies to raise and I couldn't raise them to be unhealthy, the generational curse of unhealthy eating in my family was going to end with me!!!
I am now a beautiful 190 pounds! I've lost and gained a little but I've really learned to love myself and this body (the only one I've got) no matter how much I weigh. Even better God loves me and can USE ME at any weight I am!
I even ran my first 5K in February.
My second 5K in March, and I have my third, a survival mud run, scheduled for later this month!!!
I don't have to be perfect
I don't have to be skinny
I don't have to be a supermodel! (Though I have thought about being a plus size model!) Because who else knows that the worlds "plus size" is really just healthy!!!
I am beautiful, confident, and I know I WILL NEVER give up!!! I will never say "I'll just start again tomorrow" "I'll just finish out the week and start over Monday" No, it's about making the healthy choice everyday. Making the next best decision!
God has big plans for me, and I have BIG dreams!!
I want to have a weight loss camp for girls, because our youth are facing a big problem. Not only is being overweight okay, it's "better." That's a lie! Being healthy and active is better! Eating nothing but junk food and sitting around all day is not living!
I want to be a fitness instructor. I want to teach Zumba or Turbo Kick, I've even been thinking of starting my own fitness dance craze!
I want to have more children and this time with a healthy pregnancy, finally not fearing gestational diabetes or high blood pressure!
My life has only begun and I don't ever want to look back!!!
Thank everyone of you who have stopped by my blog. Who have inspired me. Thank all of you for being on this journey with me! This is just the beginning of a new chapter, and this book doesn't have an ending!!!

Sunday Day 9
We woke up a little late Sunday morning, and I was very emotional in the morning! Seriously everything was making me cry. But after my emotional moment we went to my husband's parent's house for his brothers birthday party. I made him some lasagna (his favorite). I didn't really overeat, but I did have a little more cake then I needed, and some brownie. Honestly this weekend I wasn't doing well with my eating and I didn't exercise all weekend.
After the party we went to Six Flags with my husband's brother (it was his first time riding a roller coaster) it was so much fun! I even rode the Titan again even though I almost passed out the last time!
I did share a chicken nacho with my husband and a funnel cake with him and his brother.
Monday Day 10
Look I remembered!!!
Today I didn't do much, the babies and I didn't get up this morning until 10am, then I needed to head to city hall to pay for the park gazebo rental for my son's 3rd Birthday. He's been talking about his Birthday for over a month now! We ordered his cake Saturday and he's been asking when we're going to pick it up every day since!
Todays Fitness Streak
I did a short inner and outer thigh workout (planning to do a full body strength, but that didn't happen). I went on a walk with the babies before dinner. Then the whole family went on a bike ride to a corner store, we rode almost 4 miles!
Todays Nutrition Streak
I've had the same breakfast for a few days, and will probably have the same breakfast for the rest of the week!
Lunch (at about 2pm) was some lasagna rolls I made and a ceaser salad! I'm loving ceaser salad lately.
I also had some sweet tea today! I'm working on calculating calorie drinks as well. If it's got calories, it gets counted!
Dinner was chicken tacos and salad.
After our bike ride though we had a small protein mug cake, I forgot to take a picture of it
Well that's all for today, It's almost 10pm and I'm super sleepy!
See you tomorrow!

Man guys it's been four days since my last blog and honestly it's just because I've been forgetting! I'll remember to take pictures of my food every once and a while but by the end of the day I'm in bed and forgot all about streaking!
This week my husband has been on call so after taking care of the babies all day and putting them to bed and my poor husband coming home at 10, 11 at night I have not thought about blogging.
But today we've done so much! I started off the day with some yoga and I ended it with 10 minutes of HIIT cardio. I'm hoping to go for a run with the hubs because our next 5K is coming up in two weeks!
Well guys that's all for tonight, it's almost midnight and I'd like to get this out on time!
