It's CRUNCH Time

Crunch time for a smaller me! I know that I have only been post pregnancy for 2 months now, but I am OVER this body. I thought I was huge I look at old pics and think "omg I wish I looked like that". I have done really good and worked pretty hard but I still have 25 lbs to get to my prebaby weight and 35 lbs to get to a "goal weight" for me.

This is my ultimate goal...I know it is a FAR fetch.
I have decided to start a diet and focus really hard on an hour of cardio a day. I KNOW I should probably be doing more, but with two babies and living this far out I just cant give anymore than that!! But I am hoping my efforts will pay off and I can loose these few pounds I have to go.

I wouldn't mind this figure either!

I normally do not "diet" but I have been trying since Savannah was born and I have hit that number that I just cant seem to pass. I also don't typically "advertise" my diets or efforts at weight loss, mainly because I don't want to hear people ask "is that on your diet". This time I thought about it from a different perspective, if I put myself out there on my blog then I will be embarrassed if I do not succeed. I am VERY competitive so I am hoping this will help motivate me and keep me going strong.

So what is my plan?! To limit my carbs and increase my protein, and walk 30 minutes to an hour a day. If I only get 30 minutes in then I plan to do extra sit-ups and push-ups. I plan on no weight training at first. I am not promising fast results to myself but I am getting serious about this starting Sunday!! Hopefully good ole blogger will help hold me to it! Wish me luck as I venture down the "diet" road :/

I'm still here

Things in the household of two children under a year old are SO crazy! Most nights I don't get to sit down until 10:00 and then I'm so tired I just fall asleep. So, I apologize blogger, this is why you have been put to the back burner. I am really going to try to be better though because I find this is my place to vent and get my stress out.

I'm one of those people that holds in my stress and worries until I hit a breaking point, and I know that's really not a good thing.

We celebrated Brody's first birthday a few weeks back. It was an awesome time and I think it turned out wonderful! I cannot believe he is a year old really does fly by in the blink of an eye.

Saturday we gave Brody his first hair cut! His daddy was getting a hair
cut and Brody wanted to give it a we did it. It looks so much better and he looks so different, like a little boy!

We took the kiddos to see the Easter Bunny, they did great. Savannah slept and Brody told the bunny "ahh" his typical sentence these days. He also had the best time waving "hey" to everyone in the mall. Haha my little social butterfly.

I have started REALLY looking at homes, decorating ideas, and dreaming of our next home. Not that we know anymore about where we stand than we did a few weeks (or months for that matter) ago. But I, for some reason, have this feeling that we don't have much longer. I am hoping I don't get disappointed. I have this file "New Home" and I save images of ideas in there. I hope this will help my decorating and furniture choices easy in the future!

Today was SMALL Friday and boy was it long. I am so excited about this weekend, Saturday I get to see some friends I haven't seen in a while. Then we are going to meet my friend's new baby, I cannot wait! Then Sunday is Easter. I super excited to see Brody hunt eggs now that he is walking :)

Hope you all have a happy Friday!
