I am currently pregnant with my husband and I's first child. I'm due August 18th so I'm 31 weeks today! Before you ask, we aren't finding out the sex. <BR> <BR> I'm not going to track my food for now but am going to use the fitness tracker to make sure I get my walks in. We have a 3 1/2 month old puppy that keeps me busy and I am trying to get out on a walk a day with him now that he's good on the leash. <BR> <BR> What is new with y... Mon, 16 Jun 2014 11:52:45 EST Boss' Day = Perkins muffins http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5515139 Someone brought Perkins muffins into the bank for Boss' Day. There was a pumpkin one staring at me. So I took it. I ate about 1/3 while looking up the nutritional facts. 550 calories in one muffin!!!!!!!! <BR> <BR> I threw the rest in the trash. Whew. Glad I looked it up before I ate more than I did. 183.3 calories is way easier to deal with than 550! And I wasn't even hungry; everyone else was eating them so I did. At least I stopped, right? <BR> <BR> And happy Boss' Day to all the bos... Wed, 16 Oct 2013 11:54:04 EST You guys are motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5460408 I have found that this is the way to lose weight. And by this, I mean you guys. The motivation I get from seeing others succeed or fail and re-try helps me stick with it even when I have been absent for a while. I'd just like to say THANK YOU! Mon, 19 Aug 2013 21:52:58 EST Do you like encouragement from strangers? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5347199 While I was leaving the rec center this morning after spinning class, there was a very heavy guy going in with his workout bag over his shoulder. I had a very strong urge to tell him how great it was that he was going to work out. I get the same urge whenever I see someone out running. But I think it may be weird for that person. I know I wouldn't mind someone doing it to me, but some people don't like that stuff. <BR> <BR> Would you guys be weirded out? Haha Mon, 6 May 2013 09:44:01 EST Back...& fat http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5341662 Well here I am; back almost 7 months after my wedding. And I have gained 15-20 pounds. Yep. <BR> <BR> I have two weddings to be in this summer. One one month from today and one in September. We are also going to start trying for a baby. I do NOT want to be one of those huge bloated pregnant women. I want to be the one that still does workouts and people say "oh you look great! You're all belly!" <BR> <BR> I have done a spinning class already today at our rec center. First time to go... Wed, 1 May 2013 08:21:40 EST Job changes & restarts http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5253420 I'm back from my training in Colorado that took all last week. I will now be working in Gillette so no more driving an hour roundtrip each day. And no more weird hours. I'll be doing loan processing now while they train me to make Ag Loans. I'm glad things are returning to normal. <BR> <BR> I have 3.5 months until a friend's wedding and when we start trying for getting knocked up. That gives me 3.5 months to really push myself into getting in shape so I can continue to work out during p... Sun, 17 Feb 2013 09:47:12 EST Wedding drama and it's not even my wedding! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5205703 One of my friends got engaged a couple weeks ago. I am SO happy for her! I'm in her wedding and myself & a mutual friend got nominated by the bride to plan the bachelorette party. <BR> <BR> In our little group of girls, there is one that is not married/engaged (we'll call her M). She is actually not seeing anyone at all. This is a problem for her. She always saw herself as being married and had kids by now (her 19 year old sister has a kid). Because of this, she is often a little bitte... Sun, 13 Jan 2013 21:12:12 EST Anyone tried "It Works!" stuff? (besides the wraps) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5193666 Has anyone tried the It Works brand supplements? My friend sells them and I'm trying the "advanced fat fighter" starting tonight. I'm not hoping for a miracle. I'm actually hoping it might help with my "steel intestines". <BR> <BR> Anybody else use any of them besides the wraps?

FINALLY!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5166745 After 2 1/2 months of applying, waiting and frustration, I finally got a job! It's with Pinnacle Bank in Moorcroft. That'll be half an hour drive each way for me, but that's ok. I'll be Asst Head Teller and Loan Processor Trainee. Within 6 months I'll be moved into loans completely and a year-ish after that I'll be moved up to Agriculture Loan Officer! <BR> <BR> YAY! I'm so relieved to be able to make money and actually contribute financially rather than just cooking & laundry. <BR> <B...

It's about the crimes that happen on Mt Everest during modern day climbing. Fascinating. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/8/l789136447.jpg"> Tue, 11 Dec 2012 18:13:36 EST Well yesterday did go as planned... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5153358 Surprise surprise on that one, right? Anyway, morning was good. Had a shake for breakfast, drank lots of water. Around 9 we headed out to the ranch. My parents are in San Diego for the weekend so we told them we would feed the slaughter cow. <BR> <BR> We fed the cow, checked a stock take for my dad and then decided to go Christmas tree hunting on our property. While up there, we decided to cut one for Mom & Dad, too. Dad always has to do it and put it up and it's kind of a pain in the ...

I will also go feed a cow we're fattening for butcher at the ranch and get a Christmas tree. Supper is Itallion breaded pork chops, potatoes and green beans or asparagus. <BR> <BR> I will work hard all week. Saturday I will not be as on point as it is one of my best friend's bachelorette party. But I will try to be concious of not eating too much junk. <BR> <BR> I'm ho...

Sorry about that. Here is an update... <BR> <BR> I finished my job at the bank in Powell on August 31st. I was sad to go as it was a great job and I worked with some amazing people. I moved home to my family's ranch. It was great. Anytime you can switch an office chair for a saddle, is fantastic. <BR> <BR> The wedding was a bit of a fiasco at first. The weather turned for the worst two and a half days before the wedding. We ended up havin...

It's kind of a busy time for me right now so I haven't been on there. <BR> <BR> First with how my weight loss is going: as of Wed 8/15, I was back to 150. I was supposed to weigh in Thursday but my nutritionist didn't show up...AGAIN. That's 3 times in 2 weeks. I don't know if I will be going back to her. I might just follow the plans she had me on without her. I guess my time isn't worth it to her anyway. <BR> <BR> This w... Mon, 20 Aug 2012 08:42:30 EST Know what makes me mad? Don't worry - I'll tell you. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5008634 When people don't keep appointments. <BR> <BR> When I went to my nutritionist's office on Monday she said she couldn't make it to Powell like usual on Tuesday but would be coming Thursday. I said that's fine and I would be drive Tuesday to Cody instead of Thursday. The offices is open 8:30-1 & 2:30-6:30. She asks that everyone on the program weigh in 3 times a week. <BR> <BR> When I got there on Tuesday, there was a note on the door saying she was at an apt until 1:15. This is not the f... Thu, 9 Aug 2012 18:14:19 EST Setbacks and back into the 150's http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5003728 Yep. 153 today. Dang. I know part of it was "girl stuff" and part of it is a plateau. My body thinks it is meant to stay in the 150's forever. Well I've got news for it. No. <BR> <BR> Starting a restart tomorrow and Wednesday followed by a plateau buster Thursday - Saturday & "plan 1" Sunday - Tuesday. Then we'll see where I stand. <BR> <BR> Also - Sam (my brother) rolled his car yesterday. He is ok - not even a scratch. But the car (which was my first car and I was supposed to get...

I can't remember when I was below 150! I'll be excited to see where I end up today. <BR> <BR> It's been crazy hot here, and dry. I can't wait for fall to come so it cools down and I can actually sleep at night. <BR> <BR> Headed to Billings this afternoon to get the rest of the stuff for my flowers so I can get those out of the way. Tue, 31 Jul 2012 09:16:02 EST Shocked that I stayed on track this weekend! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4992775 The trip back to Gillette to see Brandon was good. It's SO nice to have him living so close (4 hours away) comparing to before (11 hours away). It's almost like we're actually dating. Haha. <BR> <BR> Anyway, we had our phone meeting with our reception place. She even took $0.50 off each meal cost for us. Not much, but I'll take what I can get. <BR> <BR> Saturday we went to Devils Tower in the morning. It's only an hour away. We got there, walked around it and left by 10:30. Most of ...

You pull your jeans out of the dresser, step in and have to do some weird kind of dance/wiggle to get them up over your thighs and onto your hips. And THEN, when you finally get them buttoned, you feel like sausage meat in a too small casing. <BR> <BR> Well I didn't have to do that dance today!!! I pulled those jeans right up and fit perfectly!!! Kind of a weird victory, but it is one in the same. <BR> <BR> For the first weekend in a very long time, I didn't have a day...

Tue, 17 Jul 2012 21:55:01 EST 2 weeks off of working out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4972437 While talking to my nutritionist last Thursday, she recommended I take two weeks off from working out. She said it will put me a step or two back when I start up again, but sometimes the body will drop a lot of weight (not muscle) if you stop a hardcore routine for two weeks. <BR> <BR> It's going to be kind of hard not to work out - I was really enjoying it. But, maybe this will work since the weight just keeps sticking to me.

It burned lots of our neighbor's lands but none of their buildings. No idea on if/how many animals were lost.

We are under evacuation order but are not leaving as of now. <BR> <BR> You will not find this fire on the news unless you are in Montana.

HELL YES! <BR> Sunday: 159.4 <BR> Monday: 158.5 <BR> Tuesday: 157.3 <BR> <BR> At first I thought the 0.9 pound drop from Sunday to Monday was because of these things: <BR> -Sunday I weighed in around 3:30, Monday I weighed in around 12:15 <BR> -Sunday I wore jeans, Monday I had my "work pants" (dress pants) on <BR> <BR> BUT Monday to Tuesday's weight loss of 1.2 pounds HAS to be right. I was wearing almost identical... Tue, 26 Jun 2012 14:28:39 EST No "skinny" women allowed at this gym. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4941434 I guess there's a gym in Canada that does not allow "skinny" women and is for "plus-sized" women only. <BR> <BR> I think this is crazy! <BR> <BR> First of all, what are they basing "skinny" on? Is it BMI, weight, clothing size? Second of all, if you go to this gym and become "skinny" woman by their standards, are you kicked out? <BR> "Great job on your weight loss and hitting your goals. Now get out." <BR> <BR> I think that by keeping someone in their comfort zone you are keeping them a... Mon, 25 Jun 2012 10:46:07 EST Yep - I'm frustrated. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4940475 I've been on Barb's (the dietition) plan for a week now. Want to know what has happened? <BR> 6/11: 161 pounds <BR> 6/19: 159.6 pounds <BR> 6/21: 160 pounds <BR> 6/24: 159.4 pounds <BR> <BR> COME ON. I burn 2500 calories a week for THAT?. I eat EXACTLY what she says and nothing. I'm on "plan 2" and Barb told me on Thursday that if I hadn't lost at least two pounds by today, I need to switch to "plan 3." Well, I only lost 0.6 pounds so tomorrow I'll be starting the new plan. I hope that... Sun, 24 Jun 2012 18:04:08 EST Plan guidelines & a bank robbery... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4934326 First of all, I'm sure you guys want to know about the bank robbery part. <BR> <BR> Around 8:45 yesterday morning a guy in Cody that matched the description of someone who robbed a bank in Cheyenne on Friday, went into a credit union and handed a note demanding cash. He left without any cash. <BR> <BR> At 11:23 he showed up at my bank's downtown branch. It is a very small branch (two tellers & a personal banker) and one teller was at lunch. He handed Cindy a note demanding money. She ga... Wed, 20 Jun 2012 08:31:25 EST I can box jump 24" or 38% of my height! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4932702 That's right! I jumped 24" boxes last night and this morning at crossfit! Man it feels good! When I stand next to the box I can't believe I can jump that high! <BR> <BR> -------------- <BR> <BR> As far as the diet, I am tired without carbs again. Feels like when I started paleo. I meet with Barb this afternoon to work out the next phrase of the plan (starting Thursday). <BR> <BR> -------------- <BR> Tuesday's funny <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/5/l85771175.jpg"... Tue, 19 Jun 2012 08:24:49 EST 10 weeks. Start..........NOW http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4931087 Today is the day I start my 10 week weight loss program (followed by six weeks of stabilization) with the dietition. For the next three days I eat two eggs for breakfast, half an orange for a snack in the morning and the other half in the afternoon, and as much meat (no pork) and raw green leafy vegetables as I want. <BR> <BR> Tuesday afternoon I meet with Barb (the dietition) and go over the next phase. Food is added or taken away as it affects my weight. The time of day I eat things wil... Mon, 18 Jun 2012 07:56:05 EST 10 weeks, 26 pounds. Monday. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4922838 Had my meeting yesterday. I'm going to go with this lady's program. We're going to take 10 weeks to lose around 26 pounds and then have 6 weeks of stabilization where we add and subtract calories so we can figure out where I need to be to maintain my weight loss. <BR> <BR> I also have to weigh in three times a week and keep a food journal. This will be similar to the paleo diet, except more (specific) carbs are allowed. <BR> <BR> If you want to see some of her result pictures, search "4... Tue, 12 Jun 2012 07:48:35 EST
