Oh no :( Sorry to hear that. It's rough when kids are sick, you wish could just be sick instead to take away their pain!

Plus side though is that they're usually super snuggly!

OK, so our trip was pretty awesome. Not at all what we were expecting or planning, but Carter was really well behaved the whole time and we really enjoyed ourselves. It's nice to be able to get away, even if it's only a few days, and relax as a family. emoticon

I did not do so well with my Spark goals, though. The places we went to eat were NOT Spark friendly at all (aka... the "best" choice on the menu was fried pickles?!?!?). I'm back on track today, though, and only gained back 1 pound.

Anyone have good advice on things I can pack with us and store in a hotel room so that my next trip is more successful? We're going on the 14th to a wedding in Connecticut.

Ugh! I know you ladies can relate, so don't mind me while I vent a moment! Like I said, we're supposed to go out of town today for our anniversary. Looks like instead of a romantic getaway we're going to have a family mini-vacation! My mother in law is really sick with some stomach bug so she can't watch Carter anymore. I called my mom, but she's completely unreliable about this stuff and she said she can't watch Carter because she "has to" go strawberry picking. REALLY?!?! So I guess he's going to come with us instead. I'm sure we'll have a good time. We'll just be making a different kind of memory. We haven't gone away alone since he was born (he's almost 2) and I was looking forward to this, though.

Not entirely sure what you mean by "update"... as in just keep it more active?

This weekend was AWESOME. We went to Devil's Den in Gettysburg, PA. It's part of the battlefields and has a ton of boulders that my son enjoyed climbing on. It was hot (89), but we drank lots of water and had a lot of active fun!

Wednesday is my third wedding anniversary. My husband is taking me away to Lancaster, PA for an overnight trip and a show. I'm so excited!

Hanging in there! This weekend I learned how to make omelets (I am a truly awful cook and don't try new things very often!). It worked wonderfully and is an easy way for me to sneak more veggies into my son's diet as well as my own! Think we're going to have them for dinner tonight, since we'll be getting home late. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I haven't tried cooking that yet. Thanks for the suggestion. Yesterday I cut up some mixed veggies really fine and made some fritters and frittatas and with the remaining frittata mix I just scrambled and wouldn't you know he ate the egg mixture and some of the fritters. Going to try them again this afternoon for lunch. He was snacking most of the morning since hubby didn't feed him enough breakfast and I was unavailable to put my 2 cents in (even though he doesn't believe me). I need to figure more ways to get veggies in him. I am down to only bananas again too for the fruit he wants. I'm losing my mind.

Got in my step workout yesterday morning and walked 2 miles leisurely with my Anna and Gavin later in the evening. They were like 20-25 min walks not to bad. Today I'm babysitting an almost 5 month old for alittle while. I was suppose to watch him until 6 tonight but she is going to pick him up after her dr apt and take him somewhere else that will be closer to where she will be. Fine with me. Gavin is sleeping yet so I get to focus all on the little one. I miss this stage. Will have to try to get in a workout later today since I didn't get one before the baby showed up.

Have a nice day all.

Hi Michelle, Glad you had a great Easter!!! Babies tend to be picky every once and a while. Have you tried butternut squash? I cook mine in the oven. Just slice open length wise and take your seeds out. Cook for 40 mins until soft. Place open side down in a shallow pan with a bit of water. My daughter loves all the squashes. You could even add this to eggs or a muffin or put in a soup.

Sorry to hear about your Dog! I hope the decision isn't too hard. I would go with pain pills.



emoticon Today I did Yoga again!!! love!!! I think I am starting to feel better. I have a dr's apt tomorrow and I will see what she recommends. I have been in pain all month and on vacation... Go figure my body gives out when I decide to take a rest. lol

Deciding to become more active on spark. But only small amounts of time.. Not hours... Posting once a day or twice... Posting once a week new threads. I am finding that spark is taking up more time then I want it to.

Talk with ya soon.

I went to CT to visit family and see my Grandpa. He turned 90 on Easter so we went up to see him. I also got to visit with my brother who just got to retire from the Navy (age 40). He sucks....lol Still having issues getting Gavin to eat his veggies and dinner but while we were visiting I found he likes eggplant. Go figure lol.

Today is going to be emoticon again. I didn't get a workout in at all while I was away. I will get something in later today. I just got a call from the vet letting me know Larry did real good and will be able to get picked up at 5pm today. I found out last Monday he had bone cancer. I went to CT for my Grandpa's 90th birthday then got back late last night and Larry had a biopsy due today. Now to wait a day or two to see what exactly we are looking at. Then for the hard decisions. Option 1 is just pain pills till it is time. Option 2 is to amputate the leg. Option 3 is chemo after amputating the leg. I have already decided option 3 is out since he is epileptic and his liver is already bad from the meds for keeping the seizures away. Phil is looking at option 1 but I'm looking at option 2. I hate to put him through all this and it be to traumatizing though. I'm so confused and sad.

I hope you all have a great week!

Hi everyone. Hope everyone is have a great day today. Gavin has decided today was the day he was going to walk for us. He took about 8-10 steps from the dining room gate to the kitchen sink and then just now he walked from the dining table to the toy room door then he went down. He is doing great. He has been wanting to but he just hadn't done it til today. Hubby got to see him but he almost missed it. We will see how tomorrow goes. He didn't want to eat dinner tonight. he didn't even want the brownie I made for desert.

I am 3# away from my pre-pregnancy weight!! I'm thrilled about that. I just wish my belly wasn't so jiggly yet. I know two csections are not helping things. It's not even the scars that bother me. The thing that bugs me the most is where my belly just hangs over now. It never did that before this csection. In fact now it really looks like I have a butt on my belly. I so don't like it. I even told hubby my body looks great again minus the waistline above the hips. I will do my best though and see if I can shrink it. Not giving up yet. I have plenty to go and lots of toning to do.

Got in 45 min this morning and made my burn for the day. Later when Gavin goes down for his nap I'm getting on the wii fit to start challenging Anna to move (secretly of course). Going to challenge her to beat my scores. She loves to beat my scores so this may be the way to go. Gonna give it a try anyway. Starting in April we are going to get outside and start walking/jogging. I want to do my first color run 5K this summer.

Have a great day everyone! How are you all doing? Are you getting your workouts in?

Hi all. Hope you all have a great day today!! I got in 35 min of my new WW Punch DVD this morning. Yesterday I did the beginner and didn't think it was all that and I needed to have more of an intensity so I went to intermediate and it worked. Maybe tomorrow I'll try the advanced to see how much more intensity it is. Still need to add a small workout in sometime today too. Tracked my workouts this week and tracked my first day of food today. Here's to a new streak of tracking my food.

I am feeling much better now. I don't think I will get the job. They called and I called them back but she never returned the call. I figure I will call on Monday morning to see what is up.

Still pluggin away. This week isn't starting out very well. Didn't get a chance to workout yesterday after waking up late and getting a call from my mom asking if we'd go to the mall with her. The mall we went to was 30 min away. I didn't want to go but Anna was really wanting to go. So I was hoping that we would be back by 5 so I'd have time to do the running I needed to before Scouts. We didn't get home til 6 and scouts was at 630. Needless to say after everything was said and done....I was only 6 min late. The girls had a great time cooking and I'm really glad. Today I got in m workout and a SP video however my kids are both sick with the flu. I now am feeling sickly as well. If anything I hope I get it before the weekend. My step daughter and my grandson will be coming to visit this weekend. I haven't see them in two years. O and yesterday I got a call from a local manufacturing company for a phone interview and today I got a call to make an apt for a face to face interview. Go figure I didn't even try to get this job. The Employment Source here sent it to them.....I didn't even know they did things like that nor did I know they had my resume. I guess I'll let you know how it goes. I wasn't wanting a job atleast for awhile yet. I was looking forward to taking the baby out during the day when the weather gets nice again. Go figure...If the price is right though I may have to take it.

Hope you all have a great day!!

It's about 1/2 way through February and I'm feeling so much better about myself and physically. I'm even to the point now that I want to get my workout in. I just realized I have been working out a min of 5 days a week for 5 weeks now. Last week I only did 3 days but other than that it's been 5 weeks I've kept to it. This week I am tracking my food intake as well as working out. Getting back to basics I guess. I am tired of the yo-yo weigh ins and I'm ready to get my body back into shape. I feel like I'm on my way and I feel like I'm finally getting it. Next week I'm hoping my new body fusion step dvd will be here so I can start working out to that but if not one more week won't hurt me with the basic step dvd I use now. Currently I'm only doing cardio and now adding my food tracking. Next week I'm adding some core workouts with my ball that I had to have that is in the basement collecting dust LOL. O and I decided against the dance dvd after all. I wasn't sold on it and I also found a beachbody combat commercial that caught my eye. I LOVE boxing and this may be my next workout investment. Still thinking about it. I'd love to know if anyone else has it or knows of anyone who has it and what they think of it.

Hope you all are doing well and have a great rest of the day!!

Happy Friday ladies! Hope you all are doing well. I again have been slacking this week. I got in 3 workouts so far this week and I aim to get 5 during the week so I don't have to on the weekends. Got in my workout this morning. I did the step dvd I have. Today I am rewarding myself with two dvd's. I'm buying a dance dvd called LaBlast to see what it is and Cathe Friedrich's Body Fusion Step dvd to add to my workouts. Only doing the same one after awhile gets old and I tend to flake then. Which is what I'm thinking is happening. Going to be dusting off my Tae Bo soon as well.

Stay warm and I hope you don't get to much snow if you are up north. Have a great day everyone!

Hi all. Hope you all are doing well. I slacked a few days working out last week so this week I start again. Today I got in two workouts equaling 45 min. I also started tracking my food again. I gained a pound so I need to figure out where I'm going wrong. It probably is just stress. Haven't been very happy lately and planning and pulling off Gavin's first birthday. Fingers crossed for a great weigh in this Saturday. I'm going to stay focused!!

have a great day everyone and keep moving!!

Morning everyone!! Gavin has been teething for some time now. I really wish they'd just come in already. The one that is coming now is the bottom molar. When I put baby orajel on them he cries and I even try not to put much pressure on them. My poor little man. Other than that we have been hanging out indoor this week no running around for us. To cold for him to be outside for sure. As for me I got in another workout this morning before baby woke up. Today while he naps I need to finish up the placemats for his birthday next week. I also need to do a trial run on his cake to make sure I like it. Then I need to see what other decorations I need to make. I also need to go to the dollar tree to pick up red/yellow/black plates and balloons. We are having a Mickey Mouse theme birthday since he loves him.

Have a great day ladies!!

Good afternoon everyone! Just wanted to say hi and say excuse me for being less then active on the message boards. I try to stay off the computer when I'm at home with my family so weekends I'm pretty MIA.

The hubs is out of town this week so I will be going for a good walk during lunch. No point in sitting around. I have more energy then I've had in a long time. My family and I went hiking Saturday and then Sunday my daughter and I went "exploring" around our neighborhood. She tired out before I did but I think it was more her patience. Trees and grass only keep a 5 year olds attention for so long but then we rewarded ourselves with a trip to the park afterwards. I thought to myself, "Wow! How many gorgeous days like these did I miss sitting on my rump at home and not get out with my baby bug." Not anymore!

I also wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful welcome and wish you all a wonderful day!

Lots of love,
Michelle

PS: I lost 4.6lbs on this my first week. I'm pretty stoked!

WOW Christmas? Gavin is still just standing by himself. He thought about walking to me yesterday but ended up crawling. The last few days he hasn't wanted his bottle either but will drink from the sippy. Go figure. He's becoming a big boy. He slept much better last night. He woke up once about 5am then reluctantly went back to sleep. Here's to another good nights sleep tonight. Hope you get some sleep to.

Have a great day today!!

Michelle -- that sounds like our house a couple of weeks ago. Kooper was up every couple of hours one night and drank a bottle each time (drank a little over 16 ozs in 4 hours)....I"m assuming it was a growth spurt. He's back to getting up once a night this past week, but he still wants and drinks a bottle. The lil guy is such a skinny thing (he moves all the time -- started walking around Christmas) that I think he just burns it all off), that I hate to not feed him when he's hungry. I just hope he starts sleeping through the night (he did for a couple of months around 6 months).

Hope you get some better sleep soon!!!

Great job Kelly!!

Morning all. Had another rough night with the baby. I broke down at 330 and put gummer medicine on him and gave him some gas medicine with no helping so I decided to go and get a bottle for him. He ate it all and went back to sleep. He woke up screaming a couple more times however I let him cry for a few minutes and he went back to sleep. I am starting to think he likes to see me at night lol. I don't believe in the cry it out system so he really only did cry for a couple minutes and when I was going to get up he would stop so I went back to sleep. Now watch he will sleep til 10am. He is normally already up by now. I truly can not wait for this phase to go away.

Have a great day everyone. Time for me to get my workout in. Skipped yesterday so today is my day!!

Hey Kelly! One is better than none at all. It is hard when you have little ones. I can only get workouts in when someone is here to occupy Gavin and when he naps. Most times it is when he naps. Hang in there.

I still need to get my tracking of food down and work on my snacking. Yesterday I wouldn't stop going into the kitchen looking for food. Drove me nuts.

Have a great day everyone!

Michelle -- hoep Gavin's teeth come in soon!!!!

I love The Biggest Loser...it always gets me motivated. I also love that they have added kids to the show this year. Childhood obesity is something we definitely need to get a handle on!

I've able to get in one short workout this week....I added some new workout apps to my ipad so I can fit in 20 minutes (and sometimes more) while Kooper is playing or napping. It's got to be better than nothing! Hoping I get in another one tomorrow night and again this weekend.


Hope everyone is doing well with their 2013 goals!!

Morning all. How is everyone doing? I have become busy this week with things popping up and messing with my schedule. I haven't gotten any workouts in other than two days last week. Gavin is teething again and I'm sooooooo tired. He wakes up every few hours through the night screaming. I wish his teeth would just come in already. He has 7 through now. We had a nice one week off to recoup ... wish it was more though lol.

Does anyone watch The Biggest Loser? I wish they would show more with the kids. I think it is great they offered it to some this time.

Here's to today!! I can't do anything about the past so here we go. Have a great day everyone!!

I am getting back on track from the caos of no school and holidays and hubby on vacation. I didn't want to that is for sure but I am happy that I can say I got in two workouts today. This morning I got in 10 min of a DVD I had dusted off (Golds Gym DVD) and while my LO was sleeping I got in 20 min of ONDEMAND aerobics (The Firm). Now to get my tracking of food and water in. I have made a pitcher of water and put in the drink mix in it (I don't like just plain water unless I'm mowing or extremely hot).

Here's to 2013!! I've reset my tracker to show where I am starting out this year and where I want to end. I'm aiming to reach my goal weight by my 40th bday in August. If I can do so I am so getting a new bathing suit that I love not just like no matter the cost! That is my reward for getting to my goal weight!

Have a great day everyone!

Hi everyone. I hope everything is going well with everyone. I'm relaxing tonight. Anna has a friend over so they will be giggling upstairs for the most of the night and Gavin is napping. he should actually be getting up soon. 3 days left in 2012 can't wait for 2013 to get here. Gavin will be 1 at the end of January. I have mixed emotions with this. Part of me is thrilled and part of me is sad because he is getting so big so fast. Starting to plan his special birthday next week too.

Anyone doing anything special for New Years Eve? We are having a little get together here with my mom and dad and letting Anna have a few friends overnight. Maybe she will agree to have a camp out in the basement so when I put the baby to bed they won't wake him. I may even put one of the TVs down there if that will help out. I have already let hubby know that I am not wanting anyone else coming this year. That means neither of his kids are invited. I am still mad that they went to their moms but not our house. I decided I don't want anyone here now. I told him I will tell them so too if need be. I want a calm evening not a kaoss.

Still a bit sporadic with my workouts but I'm still getting small ones in. And I'm losing yet. I am aiming for a min of 15 min a day through the end of the year then working my way up to 30 starting January. I'm not going to hit my goal of 144.4 but I may hit my other goal of 149. I have two more weigh ins until the year is over. I can't believe my LO will be one in just 6 weeks....:0( He is growing so fast.

Have a great day everyone!!

I finally got off my butt this morning before the baby woke up. I got in 15 min on my Wii. I know it isn't much but it is better than nothing at all. It's snowing today here in NE Ohio, not sticking but still snowing. I'm off while the LO naps. I'm going to get the dishes done again and take out his lunch so when he's ready for it I'll have it. Talk to you later!

Hi everyone. No workouts yet this week. Tonight isn't going to be a good day for one either. Just poppin in to see how everyone is doing. I'm off to clean up just a bit more and a load of laundry in before LO wakes up. I also need to make some salt dough ornaments for the Girl Scouts to paint tonight for home. Next week will be a mini Christmas party for them since cookies start next weekend.

Have a great day all. Talk to you later.

Happy Sunday!!!

I was able to get in some more Christmas shopping done today...whoo hoo!! Almost done...just a few more gifts left to buy.

So far logging 7,700 steps today and still have a couple of hours left in the day.:) Today will be the highest so far....striving to do a little more each day.

This week will be interesting food wise-- I have three work lunches this week! I'll just have to make smart choices and watch portions.:)

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Michelle---- yes, I got the one that tracks sleep too.....first night into 6 hrs and woke up 8 times. It's interesting to see. Ended up logging 7500 steps first day and so far today I'm at 6700.

I got the scale too.....hopefully arrives next week. Just need to drop this weight:)

Michelle -- after the first day, I'm really liking the fitbit! Funny how little things can motivate you differently. I've had a pedometer before, but I really like how this one syncs to the computer and tracks it. I only got in about 6,000 steps so far today but I'm aiming for 10,000 steps daily.

Playing with kids and entertaining are good workouts :)

SUNSHINE084 - How do you get them to eat it after they are used to the store bought. Is there a trick? Today was day 3 of trying. I made new food today and he liked the sweet potato but not so much the sweet potato and peas. It smells really good and I actually liked it too but he just doesn't want anything to do with it. I tried those two together since those are his favorites outta the jar.

Kelly - I so want to hear all about the fitbit. I want one for Christmas but I don't think hubby will buy it for me. Great job on losing that pound. You can so lose that by then.

Today I was more productive than I have been in a few weeks. I didn't get a workout persay but I did dance around and clean the dishes while entertaining Gavin. I was listening to Christmas songs then decided to switch it to my ipod and he had a ball. That is as close to it as I got. I did some laundry but not enough to count either. And I'm happy that my house looks pretty again. Still need to declutter the dining room table...trying out couponing...not going so well either LOL.

Michelle --- I'm so happy your'e able to stay home!!! And AWESOME job being in the 140s!!

I just bought a fitbit one and the scale....hoping these two little gadgets get me moving in the right direction. I am fitting in a little more exercise and have lost one pound.....we just booked a vacation for late February and I'm hoping to lose 15 pounds between now and then!!

Hope everyone is doing well.....getting a new computer for Christmas, which will help me be on more....my current one is so slow that it frustrates me and I tend to avoid it and just use the app.


Happy December!!!

Morning everyone. I should be working out but I'm just sitting here in the quiet. Not for long though. Have to get a load of laundry in and put the clean dishes away so when I get to the dirty ones I can just wash. Cold out there today. I know it is Dec but the weather has been so nice lately I just wish it was nice again....Not doing well this week with working out. Have been doing fine with the eating. I still catch myself going in the kitchen looking for something just don't know what.....helps tho to have LO - I don't eat when he doesn't eat. He sees food he wants it.atleast until I put it in his mouth then he spits it out. lol

Since I am now at home full time I'm looking for ways to save money. One was I was thinking of making his food....only thing is I don't know the first thing to do. Anyone want to help me out with a few pointers? It would be nice. Talk to you later. I'm off to get a few things done around the house before he wakes up.

Hi everyone. I hope your morning is going well for you all. Mine is getting better the ibuprophene is kicking in. Gavin can wake up anytime now. I have been really lazy this week and today I know why....lol Could also be why I want chocolate and pop too.

I've been a SAHM now for a month and I am so LOVING it!! I could so see myself doing this all the time. Or atleast til he gets into school. I know I won't be able to but for now I can so I'm taking it. Hubby is ok I think anyway. He doesn't seem to mind. I am not missing a thing with the baby and I get to see Anna longer too. I feel happier as well. I've been losing consistently and am excited to be in the 140s soon. I'm looking to take classes while I'm off work but the classes I want to take are about an hr or more away. So that isn't going to do me much good. I am super glad that my mom and dad instilled in me the brains to budget. If it wasn't for that skill I wouldn't be able to be home now. We don't have nearly the money we had but at the same time we aren't completely broke either. I probably will start looking for part time work. I'd like to continue being home for the kids more.

Sounds like Gavin finally is getting up. Talk to you all later! Take care!!

Today is my first day at my new job - I am now a Stay at home mom!! We had a rough night last night...Gavin is teething and seems to be bothering him more than normal and he is starting to come down with a sickness. Fingers crossed he doesn't have the flu. I found out yesterday that my friends stepson was home with the flu and that is where he goes while I'm still working. Going to the unemployment office tomorrow. Today is still raining and yucky.

I got in a 15 min workout this morning. Baby woke up 1/2 way through it but let me finish while he ate his bottle. Going to squeeze in another 15 min later today.

Have a great day everyone!!

Hey Kelly. Hope all is going well with you and your family. I've been maintaining pretty well the last few weeks. I have had a couple losses and issues going on at work due to missing so much so soon between, which I feel is unfair. I had dropped off my resume and put in an app on Friday for a part time job and got a call tonight to call tomorrow for an interview. I'm so excited I so hope the hours and pay are what I need. Fingers crossed.

Homecoming was great. Anna went with two of her friends and we went out to dinner with them too. Went to the park first for pictures. Once I download them onto the computer I'll post them on my sparkpage.

How are you doing? I'm not working out at all. I am however watching what I eat. I've been so stressed this past week and Monday and today I haven't eaten much. Guess I'm not a stress eater....lol Talk to you later.

Hi PERIDOTPRINCESS! Welcome to the team.

Didn't do much other than eat to much this week. Last Saturday I found out my grandma passed. My brother and I drove up to CT for her services. It was a nice service too. Got to see alot of people I haven't seen for a long time. Wish it was under different curcomstances though. Tonight is shot but tomorrow is another day. I need to get off here and do some dishes and a load of my baby's laundry.

Have a great evening everyone!! Night!!

Hi all. I've been watching what I'm eating and so far I've been doing good. I was on pinterest today at work and I decided that today was a great day to recharge and refocus. I know what I want and what I need to do now all I really have to do is do it. I did it before I got pregnant I can do it again. It bites knowing that I lost 30# before and now I have to start all over. I would do it all over again though so don't get me wrong. Just bites sometimes when I look at myself in the mirror. New goal is to be fit and fabulous by 40. (Goal 125/130 by 8/16/13). Tomorrow will be emoticon for me again. I can do this!!

Night all. I hope you all are doing well.

Hi everyone. Hope you all are enjoying your Saturday. I am so glad I get 3 days off this week. Sitting here watching Gavin jumpin in his Baby Einstein Jumper toy. We already had to raise it one notch he is so tall. LOL He loves it he also LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I let him watch two shows so I can get some house work done before we start getting ready for bed.

Have a great evening everyone. After I'm done checking my emails I'm off to get a workout in since hubby is home and he's able to watch the baby. Anna is trying to swindle money off her dad by beating him on Call of Duty. They are betting 1.50 that she can kill more people than her dad. LOL So far she is up to 17.50 LOL

Talk to you all later. Night!!

Morning everyone. I'm excited to post that I got day 2 workout in yesterday. It was definatly a late night but I got it and that's all that matters. Today will be day 3. I think the pictures are going to work very well. I showed them to hubby last night and he saw nothing wrong with them. He didn't disagree with me either that I was saying I was quite large in the pictures. I'm hoping that it isn't going to be late all the time like last night. I went to bed at midnight and then couldn't sleep. I'm pretty tired today LOL

Today is my Anna's picture day. She looked so pretty. When she got outta the Jeep this morning she saw the other kids and wandered why they didn't dress up. I told her some kids don't care but she is fine to dress up if she wants to. She seemed bummed last night when I was talking to her about homecomming. She was planning to hang out with her friend Kortny but she has a date now and Anna doesn't. I told her this morning that if someone asks her to go she can go with him if she wanted and/or if she wants to ask someone she can. I told her she can go just as friends too it's no biggy they don't have to be boyfriend/girlfriend. I hope I'm not pushing her I don't want to I just want her to know its ok for her to go with a boy this year if she wants to.

Better get back to work. Talk to you all later.

Went to the park last night and had a good time. We took the baby on the marry go round and he didn't seem to mind it much until it went full speed. Didn't cry but didn't seem to enjoy it much then. Anna took him down the slide and he was swinging for alittle while. I got one smile during the whole thing. Other than when grandma showed up and he lit up like a Christmas Tree. It was so cute.

Today not going to do much. I am going to be printing 3 pictures that Anna took of me and the baby on the marry go round and putting them in places so I won't grab that snack or pop. OMG I'm never going to look like that again. O NO!!! Today will be day two of exercise after work and before bed.

Have a great day everyone!!!

Hi everyone. I had inventory yesterday so I couldn't get online. I'm glad it went better than last month...last month was horrid. Anyhow today is Saturday and we have no plans. My SS stopped by with the baby this morning. I was just telling hubby that I wanted to go over to see her and the next thing I know they were here. LOL She is 15# now and almost 3 mths old.....Gavin is 18# and almost 7 mths old. I took a pic gonna try later to upload it.

I always have hard time squeezing exercise in. I got lucky is all Sun-Tuesday and my walks. Had to make sure Anna knew how to get home from school. Weekends are easier since hubby is home but only if we don't have plans.

Hope you all have a great Saturday!!!

emoticon Wow your Anna is getting bigger. She will love High School !

emoticon What a crazy day for me. I ended up visiting my friend for a morning play date. Then I went shopping to Costco. Came home and carried two items at a time into the house. I put the baby in the carrier so I could bring the groceries in. I wish Costco had bags? or that I remembered to bring my own bags would have been better. Then we had a girl do a crazy vacuum cleaner and air purifier presentation. I told her that I never agreed to this presentation and I was told they were dropping my prize off and they were going to do survey. She was not happy with me!! Then when she asked me questions in the end. She would not put my answers on the paper!!!!!! I said to her " If you are going to ask how I rate your products I am going to Say "Poor" There is no for me to know how this product works without having seen these particular products work for a month or two. Anyways If I wasn't happy or gave the presentation a bad remark she would ask the question again. I said if you have to hand this paper in then you should listen to the customer and write what I am telling you... And she had to borrow a pen!!! It's your job come prepared... Sorry for the Rant

To make matters worse I never got to exercise tonight... I am sad and I will have to do both my Zwow 4 & 5 wrk outs in the same day. I have limited time to wrk out... I keep trying to re- organize my day... to get more time in. When my dh comes home time escapes from me.
I feel like a mom that is going to pull her hair out. Oh wait I am waiting for my hair to grow back... So stressed.

If anyone has advice please share your tips with me.

Hi everyone. Yesterday was my daughters first day of high school. She is now a freshman. It went well for her too as I heard all about it. I was so happy it went well for her. She has definatly more responcibility this year school year too. She walks home from school now, takes the dogs out when she gets home and then waits for her brother to be dropped off at 3 to take over watching him til I get home about 430-5pm. She was so worried about yesterday that she had a hard time sleeping Tuesday night. Ended up to be just fine so last night she slept much better. Tonight I have no plans so I can't wait to get home and see them. I need to stop at the vet after work though to pick up Larry's ep pills. Super happy tomorrow is FRIDAY!!

Hope you all are having a nice day today. I gotta go get back to work now. Talk to you soon.

Happy Friday everyone. I have no plans tonight other than picking up the house and trying to catch up on laundry. Tomorrow I'm going to take Anna out school clothes shopping and I need to stop by Deb's to see if they have the dress she wants to try on for homecomming this year. She doesn't have a date but she is going to try to go with some friends. I found a few pictures of Gavin on my phone that I haven't downloaded yet so I'm going to try to do that today and order the invitations so I can get them all mailed out by Sunday night. Good thing I'm only sending to family not so many. Then I need to start looking for recipes to make in the crockpot and pick up some snacks, plates, cups, ect...and order the cake which I keep forgetting about. O my my my.

Gonna get back to work. Hope you all have a great day today.

I always hate when companies do that. I really watch the prices when they get rung up and my hubby gets mad at me. He thinks I'm stressin cuz of the final bill but I'm really making sure they are charging me what I think they should be.

Today we have no plans just going to hang out at the house. Hopefully I'll be able to clean up a bit or Anna will for me while I tend to the little one. Stressing out now about the invitations I still haven't gotten for the baptism. They need to be sent out by Sunday at the latest to give ppl enough time to adjust their schedules if they want to be there. Once this is over its then my Anna's bday. She will be 14. Still have nothing for her............. emoticon Then I'm going to start my Christmas shopping. Can't believe there is only 19 weeks left til the end of the year. O my!

Hope you all enjoy your day!! Gotta get back to work.

Well I had a crazy day. Went to a sale at a store and it was packed. Had to leave my stroller at the front of the store because I could not move. I picked the baby up and carried her. Then I couldn't hold what I wanted to and the baby.. My MIL came also and then finally took the baby from me and told me to go shop. I got some great deals. Then when I got to my car. I realized they charged me 25.00 extra. I went back with my bags and then the lady went through my items and gave me the money back. Never apologized... Now I don't know what to think of this store.. it was the owner I was dealing with.

Just a crazy day. I hope I have a better weekend.

Glad you are starting to feel better Michelle. Babies do grow fast. My little girl is already fitting 18 month clothes. Some of the pants are big in the waist but she is a long baby. Your son prob will out grow his car seat soon. My baby is passed the limit according to the manufacture. I need to get her measured and see how long she is. A month ago she was 73 cm long. What a day... my sister came over and she was ok to be around but she has to give her two cents on everything. I just can't handle it sometimes. Does she forget that she is a mom too.

Feeling better now. Each day alittle bit more. Thanks for thinking of me.

It gets easier as he gets older too. Hang in there. Gavin has changed his bed time and wake up time as well. Phil is thrilled with it but me I'm still not sure about it. I miss seeing him in the mornings. But if he keeps this up then on my days off I get to sleep longer. LOL He now wants to go to bed about 9-930pm and will wake up anytime after 9am. He used to go to bed at 8 and wake up at 645-7am.

Took Gavin to his 6 month checkup yesterday. He is now 17# 6 oz and is 28.3" Long. Looks like my little man isn't so little anymore. He is already growing outta the 6-9 month clothes I had gotten from my baby shower. The last time he had his shots he was a bear all day but this time he was a trooper. You wouldn't even of guessed he had those horrible shots in the morning. Lucky me since I still wasn't feeling well.

Better get back to work. Just poppin in to see how everyone's doing. Have a nice rest of the day all!

Michelle......sinus colds and headaches are the worst! Hope you feel better soon!!

I'm still doing good with my diet....who hoo! I managed to fit in 20 minutes of exercise before the little guy decided I was done.....uggh.. Someday maybe I'll get in over 30 minutes.:). It's hard as my husband travels for work so I'm often on my own..... I love the time Kooper and I get to ourselves, but every once in awhile it would be nice to have help so I could get a good workout in. Just going to keep getting in the small increments when I n....it's got to be better than nothing.

Happy Wedesday everyone!

I broke down last night and stopped at First Care to see a doctor. I have a sever sinus infection and my lymph nodes on my left side are infected and swallen too. I feel like my head is going to blow up and my eyes are going to pop out of my head. I wish I had vacation now so I could have called off. But since I don't have it til 8/25 I am here at work being misserable. Dr said I should be feeling better in 3 days. I hope this Amoxicillan kicks in soon cuz this bites.

I think I lost my mind last night too. Instead of driving I decided to walk down to the CVS (about 1 mile both ways) with Gavin to get my perscription. It wasn't to hot and I felt pretty good while I was outside. By the time I came home though I felt poopy. I was a big dummy. That was my only exercise that I knew I would get so I went for it. Not going to do it today though unless there is a miracle and I feel better.

Great job Kelly on getting in some exercise!! It's better than just sitting on the couch.

Have a great day everyone! I better get back to work so I can leave on time.

Well Gavin is feeling much better now but that is because he gave it to his mommy. I feel like poo. Fingers crossed I'm on the mend now. My nose just won't stop running....uggg Those pesky teeth still haven't poked through. I wish they'd come in already.

Thanks Kelly I have been working hard to lose what I have so far. My numbers have slowed down since he's been sick and now I'm sick. Hopefully I will be able to start working out again next week. Til then guess it will be walking only for me. That is the only thing that doesn't bother me while I'm sick. Have a great week. What do you have planned for today?

Have a great day everyone!!

Hey there Kelly!! How are you doing? Where does the time go? Next week mine goes for his 6 month checkup. I just don't want him to grow this fast.

I'm finally seeing the number move in the direction I want on the scale. Now to keep going. I've been so busy the last week or so I didn't get much exercise squeezed in and this past weekend Gavin was sick. I had to leave work Monday to take him to the doctors office. Come to find out he has an ear infection in both ears and croup. Not to mention he is teething. There are two pesky teeth that just don't want to pop through. He is doing much better today I"m so happy about that. Tonight he will be sleeping in his own room. I still love to watch him sleep.

Anna is going to CT with my mom and dad which will leave me and the baby alone for a few days. Thinking walks will be happening at night after we eat dinner. Still wandering what to get her for her bday next month. Options are the iphone3g or a bike. Whichever I don't get she will get for Christmas. Her bday is 9/14 so her bike will only be used for a short time then put away. Decisions decisions.

Well better get back to work. Take care everyone. Have a great rest of the week!!

What kind of boot camp do you go to? Is it a baby boot camp? There isn't any classes where I live like that. Have a great time with your sister. Enjoy your party. I'm sure it will be great!! When is your bday? Mine is the 16th and I'll be the big 39. I wish Gavin's two teeth would pop through soon. He already has the bottom two and the on each side of those are coming they just havn't popped through yet. His gummers area all swallen poor thing. He is a trooper though he isn't to fussy. Lucky me!! The two on top you can see but they haven't cut through either.

I'm going to make this month really count. School starts soon so I need to get back into the swing of things. Today I got up at 530am and was done by 620am. Looks like I'll be able to get atleast 15 min in before I need to make sure Anna's up for school. My goal is to lose atleast 1# a week.

Gonna get back to work. Have a great day everyone!

Hope you have a great week. I am sure you miss Anna while she is at camp. I miss those days and loved loved going to camp.

Well this week my little sister is in town still so I will be getting together with her so she can see the baby. I have boot camp on Tuesday and Thursday and I will be planning a bday party for my older sister and I. I am going to make it a Hawaiian theme. I hope we have a good turn out. My birthday falls on the Aug Long weekend so Most of my fiends are gone on Holidays. I am working on -2 lbs for the last week in July. Well going to get some rest. The baby is asleep and I hope she sleeps well tonight. She has two teeth cutting through... I wonder how long I use that term " Cutting " Her tooth is halfway up and the other one has emerged. I am so new at the lingo. TTYL nIGHT
