Motivational Monday

Here's some Monday Motivation for ya! I love this one! I have felt like this many times at a gym or running around my neighborhood  Sometimes you actually see people laughing or making fun of you or you just think they are. Or I do at least. 

So I had it all planned out to workout this morning. I had a date with Chalene and turbo fire at 5 am. I had my workout clothes and shoes all set out. My HRM and water bottle in place, and even had the DVD in the player ready to go. Annnnnnnnnnnd my alarm never went off!!!! BOOOOOOOO it seems like when I have the best intentions is when I totally get screwed somehow. Something comes up, goes wrong, or gets in the way. So now I have decided I have to do it tonight after the girls are in bed. I'll try again in the morning tomorrow and get my routine going. This time I'll triple check the alarm and pep talk myself outta bed. I am so not a morning person but after I workout in the mornings I feel so much better and energized for the day! Here is hoping to a great week.

I'm the kinda girl who...

I'm the kinda girl who...

Is the biggest procrastinator you've ever met

Doesn't know how to say no to anyone and gets taken advantage of by some

Gets her feelings hurt very easily

Cries when she is happy, sad, mad, hurt, or upset (all the time really) LOL

Is a lover not a fighter but will fight for the ones she loves

Loves a nice hot bubble bath, glass of wine, and a good book

Will drink wine straight outta the bottle

Has a nasty habit of biting her nails when nervous, upset, or bored

Is stubborn and hard headed when she knows she is right

Friday Finds

Friday finds:

1. The 4 pounds I gained from TOM finally went away when I hopped on the scale this morning!

2. I really need to stop weighing myself everyday and limit it to once a week. But then again it let's me know where I'm at... so I don't know...

3. I decided that along with c25k I need to step it up and start getting up a 5am again to do Turbo Fire. Two a days here I come!

4. Along with #3 I also need to clean up my eating a lot!

5. This week wasn't a very good one healthy wise I blame TOM but now that it’s over time to get after it!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!!

Motivational Monday!

My motivation for today came through my lovelies over at MLFC! Someone had posted the idea for a visual of your weight loss pound by pound and goals in between your starting weight and ultimate goal weight. I typed up this bad boy today and it really made me happy when I finished it! I really hope I can reach these goals and be one hot momma in 2014!!!! If you are lacking some motivation too I suggest you go make yourself one! Come on it's fun!

Weigh-In Wednesday

Well it's Wednesday, hump day, also known as weigh in Wednesday  I am linking up with Erin and Alex today and I have been slacking on these link ups. Why? Well ya know because I was in a funk and didn't even want to look at a scale much less discuss the number on it. BUT now that I am finally feeling myself and have been the past couple weeks I need to face the music and get on with my healthy life.

I started C25K a couple weeks ago and will do week 2 day 3 today. I have really enjoyed it so far and I am really surprising myself with how far I can actually run without stopping. I really never gave myself enough credit and now I am getting to see just how far my body really can go. It is very exciting. I still have my slip ups now and again but they are getting fewer and further between. I have been drinking at least 100 oz. of water daily too. So I stepped on the dreaded scale this morning and I saw a two pound loss from last week. YES! Finally losing the extra poundage I gained while down in the dumps. Slow and steady and less screw ups with food and hopefully I can get to goal sometime before Dec 31st. I am aiming for my 30th birthday in October but we will see.

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day!

What's In A Name? Link-up

Hey ya'll! I am doing a link up today because I love babies and I love baby names! Plus I have baby fever really bad right now so it makes me smile to talk about these things. Amanda over at My Very Own Modern Family is hosting the link up. Go over and check her blog out and join in the fun.

I have been blessed with two beautiful baby girls. Hoping to have a third child in the near future and hoping we get a boy this time. Either one is fine with me but I would really love to give the hubby a son. You never know what will happen! Excited to see what our future will bring. But for now let me gloat about the two beauties I have right now!!

The one thing we decided early on was that we weren't going to name our kids after anyone in our families. Why? Oh because let's see I have a mom, dad, step mom, step dad, and double grandparents. and he has his mom, dad, grandparents. So alot of people to get feelings hurt if not named after them lol

Layla Rae- The hubby and I were so undecided on a girls name.  He didn't like most of mine and I didn't like most of his. One day I was watching Big Daddy with Adam Sandler and the lawyer he falls in love with is named Layla. I had forgotten about this name and loved it! It wasn't too common at the time, either. SO I made the suggestion and my husband actually agreed! He likes the name because of the song "Layla" by Eric Clapton. So he takes credit for naming her but I really think I suggested it first! lol Rae just sounded good with it and we liked the spelling of it. If she would have been a boy her name would have been Parker.

Presley Skye- I loved the name before I even got pregnant. My hubby also liked it and for obvious reasons- Elvis Presley and agreed upon it. He likes the whole rock and roll theme names going on with our kiddos. lol  He likes to take credit for naming both our girls but I had a little something to do with it! Skye went well with it and I also have always loved the name Sky and added and E to the end. If she would have been a boy her name would've been Maddox.

Have a great Tuesday lovelies!!

Happy Friday! Happy February!

Hey lovelies! Today is a new day, a new month, and it's FRIDAY! Can I get an amen? So if you read my blog you know that January royally sucked for me! I mean I was lost in a funk with a dark cloud hanging over my head most of the month and I paid for it. The ten pounds I had lost came right back in January. Why    does it seem to take forever to lose weight but three or four weeks to put it all back on? Like anything else in life a healthy lifestyle takes commitment, dedication, and lots of hard work. I have recently gotten out of the mood I was in and decided nobody is going to help me. I have to help myself. February is going to bring great things for me because I am more determined and more focused now than ever before! I have realized that I want to do this for me and that I need to give myself a little more attention which is hard for me. I am so busy with taking care of my hubby and two girls that often times I don't do anything for just me. I recently started the C25K program and am on week 2 day 2 tomorrow. I am really enjoying challenging myself and getting some alone time. Plus running is a great stress reliever. Who knew I would actually like it? I can see myself being able to run a 5K later on and I can see myself becoming a runner! WAIT!? WHAT?! Did that just come out of my mouth? Yes I learned you have to take some leaps of faith and see what you are really capable of. It really is amazing what I can already do that I thought not possible. Now don't get me wrong it is hard work, my legs KILL me and I want to stop more than once while doing it. Sometimes I have to walk a little more than I am suppose to on the program but you know what? I am doing it and I feel amazing each time I complete it!! I never really thought I had an AH-HA moment until a week or so ago. I finally got mine and I am pumped to see where this journey is going to take me. 

Ladies do not give up on yourselves. Stay strong and be kind to yourselves. Weight loss is so much more mental for me and once I got past that I feel like I can really get somewhere. You can do it. We all can. 

Have a fabulous weekend!!! XO
