Livin' and Rockin'

Kudos to you if you know the band I'm referencing in the blog title there. They are my faves and I think if everyone listened to the messages in their music that the world would be a much happier and more positive place. I'll tell you who it is later, if you don't know.

Well, as of Saturday I am officially down 16lbs since February 12! I am totally looking forward to my 1 month check-up with my doctor. Hopefully his scale will reflect the same kind of progress I'm making at home. I wasn't supposed to weigh myself at all, but who can do that? Maybe I'll try again during month 2. Maybe...

This week is going to be totally crazy between doctor's appointments and my son's birthday party. Tomorrow I'm going to see my regular doctor for my progress check, then on Weds I'm going to see Nutrition Consultants of Tulsa regarding my eating habits (emotional, boredom, binge eating). Then on Thursday I am surprising my kids with a visit from my sister, she's flying in from Nj for my son's first birthday party and she'll be here for the weekend! THen I have the birthday party on Sunday, which should be a lot of fun. THEN, monday I am going to another counselor about my eating problems, this is a very prestigious place called Laureate. Phew! I'm exhausted just typing that up. But these are all good things, so it should be pretty exciting, even though it's going to be nuts!

I also cannot help but feel totally bittersweet about my baby boy's 1st birthday. This last year has gone by so, so fast. There is part of me that wants him to stay a baby forever. I guess it's also due to the fact that so much has changed this last year, what with the move to Oklahoma, new job, new apartment, basically a brand new life. I also know that my husband and I don't want to have more children, so it's kinda like, the last 1st birthday, if that makes any sense? But I am so proud of my litte Justin. He's smart, and funny, and I know that one day he'll grow to be a great young man. I just wish I could slow down the process of him getting there.... :::sigh:::

Until next time.....

Oh yes, and in case you were still wondering about the band I quoted, it's 311. I strongly suggest you check them out! They have a pretty lengthy discography, but I highly recommend "Uplifter" for it's overall positive message, especially the song "It's Alright".

    My husband and I are done having kids to. We have 3 total. My youngest will be 14 months right away. So sad. I can't wait to be done with diapers though!
