Weight Loss Week 1

So I must admit, I think my goal may have been a bit loafty considering my circumstances. I still have a tiny baby who depends on me to eat so thay he in-turn can eat also. I am like a freakin jersey cow with all the milk I have right now I seem to have forgotten the fact that I have a very hard time loosing weight while I nurse. I was very, very good this past week watching everything I ate and I actually worked out hard, my old routine hard, 4 days. I was sad that I only lost 1 lb. this week but what did I expect? It's not like I'm the biggest looser dropping double digits every week right? I did however loose 1.5 inches off my waist and my pants definately fit better. Plus I have been drinking soooo much water lately that my skin is looking awesome, better than it has looked in years. It's crazy what water can do for the body. So I guess I will just have to be patient and remember that until I stop feeding my chunky baby (you would think I was actually producing cream, not just milk with how fat he is getting) I don't think my weight lose will be as rapid as I hoped for. Oh well, all I can do is try right!

Valentines Break-up

I have a LOVE! I don't even know how long I've been in love. I realize now I have probably loved all my life but in the past year I have loved more intensly. This love of mine is always there. Comforting me, soothing me, calming me, treating me quite right. I have been realizing now that this love of mine has changed. I used to love just as much or as little as I needed but now, whoa- I'm lovin all the time!!! I don't just need love, I want love, I crave love---I'M ADDICTED TO THIS LOVE! Well the time has come for me to say goodbye to my love. I realize that this love is no longer good for me. I don't feel in control of my own life anymore with this love around, tempting me, taunting me, calling for me in the middle of the night. It has gone to far. SO after today (I say tommorrow because it's just mean to break up on Valentines, and my love and I have plans tonight)I am offically breaking up with my Love! My affair will soon be over. I am telling you all this because I know it can be awkward later, not seeing us together, me not coming to invites because we will no longer be togther etc. And also, I am going to need a lot of support. Check on me regularly, leave me a note asking how my life is going with out my love. Most of all, don't ever try to get me back together with my love. When I'm done, I'm done!!! I'll admit it, there have been great times with my love. That's what makes this break-up so hard. So for now--------Goodbye Food!!

I know this is silly but in all seriousness the eating has to STOP!!!! I kept saying after the holidays, after the new year, after the super bowl, after valentines, well there will always be something to start after so dang it the time has come. I have entered myself into a few hard challenges this year, The Wasatch back relay, The SpudMan Triathalon and Little Red Riding Hood 100 mile bike ride. I desperatly need to start training and the extra 30 lbs. (yeah I said it, don't judge) I have on me are making it hard. I am telling you all this because I want to be accountable to someone other than myself and what better way then to update people who I know will check to see my progress. At the bottom of my blog is an update. Check it often and if there is no progress let me have it. Make me feel bad, tell me I'm letting you down because I don't feel bad enough letting myself down. My goal is to loose the 30 lbs. in 3 months so I better be close by May 15th. Thanks for listening, and if you are my mother-in-law calm down, I wasn't going to give Nathan back:)

Happy Birthday Nate and Addison!!!

So I know it might sound like I am bragging but hey, she's my only girl and I'm not sure I will get another so I can't hold back, I'SNT SHE SO CUTE!!! She was the prettiest baby I have ever seen. I was so excited when I found out she was a girl. I am so lucky to have been blessed with her in this family. She is now turning 7. Can you believe it? She is such a gift in my life and I hope to always have a special mother-daughter realtionship with her. She is all drama and attitude but we love her. She adds so much life to our family. She is so sweet and helpful with her brothers and such a good friend. WE LOVE YOU ADDISON!!!

Nate's Birthday is today and Addison's is tommorrow. She was 3 hour late from having the same Birthday as her daddy. Nate is so lucky. He got his own MAN ROOM for his birthday. While he was gone this weekend I moved all the toys out of the toy room and changed it to be a room just for him, and a little for Noah too. I hung a bunch of shelves and put all his motocross trophies in there. I had a big poster of him riding made and framed. I moved the flat screen and all the rock band stuff in there so they can party hard. I am so lucky to be married to such an awesome husband and dad. He really works hard to take care of us and I am so blessed to have him. Happy 29th (again) Birthday!! I LOVE YOU!!

Whitman's Blessing Day

We blessed Whit on Sunday. It was an awesome day. All except the poor little guy woke up with a cold in his eye and it was glued shut with boogers. I had to keep wiping it all day long. I don't think it was pink eye but still he looked goofy. Luckily I took some practice pictures of him a few days before. He is the silliest litle baby when I take his picture. It's like he knows he is supposed to pose or something. Anyway, the day was GREAT! Nate gave one the most beautiful blessings I can remember. I am so lucky to have him and the priesthood in our home. After church we came to our house for food and fun. When isn't fun involved when there is food? We hung out all afternoon and played and laughed and just enjoyed each others company. I LOVE that we live close to all our FAMILY! We both (Nate and I) have the best families. I love family events and get togethers like this. I love the Gospel in my life. I love where we live and EVERYTHING I have in my life right now. I love being a mother and a wife and I am in LOVE with my new baby boy! Here are some of the pictures from the day. And yes I know, he looks Amish in the hat.
