Sunday, Fun Day

We had a busy weekend visiting family and friends. Sunday, Parker was able to spend the day with his BFF, Briley. They played with trains, road their 4-wheeler's and played on the slide. We hope to spend many more weekends playing with Parker's friends.

Blogger Biggest Loser {Week 8}

Wow, getting this weigh off is really hard.  When I first started this challenge, I lost 2-3 POUNDS the first 2-3 weeks.  Then reality hit, it's a slow process.  I'm eating healthy Monday-Thursday but Friday-Sunday, not so well.  That has to change.  So my goal from here forward is that I will allow myself one day to not eat as healthy.  Notice the word AS.  I don't mean go over the deep end with all three meals that day.  I'm talking about maybe a carb loaded pasta meal for dinner but my normal healthy breakfast and lunch.  So, here are my numbers:

Week 1:  174.8
Week 2:  172.8
Week 3:  170.8
Week 4:  170.6
Week 5:  170.6 
Week 6:  170.6
Week 7:  168.8
Week 8:  168.6

I lost .2 last week, not the number I was hoping for.  I'm running a 5k on Saturday and plan to run on the treadmill 2 times this week also.  Let's hope that I come close to my 165 goal by next week!  Have a wonderful week!

Blogger Biggest Loser {Week 7}

I set a goal to reach 165 by the end of the month.  I'm not going to lie, it's going to be really hard to hit that number.  I have a plan in place, lets hope it works.  I did really well last week.  I'm still drinking lots of water, sticking to my 1200 calories and working out.  The wheather has been nasty in South Alabama lately, so Jullian Michael's has became my BFF.  She kicks my tail! 

Week 1: 174.8

Week 2: 172.8
Week 3: 170.8
Week 4: 170.6
Week 5: 170.6
Week 6: 168.8
Week 7: 167.6

I lost 1.2 pounds.  So, I need to shed 2.6 in 9 more days.  If I step it up, I can do it.  Have a great week~

Happy Valentine's Day

I had the most fun making treats for the kiddos in Parker's class.  Parker woke up this morning saying "I like candies, mommy!"  I made the chocolate pretzels that has the m&m in the middle.  Sorry, no picture. 

On a different note, God is so good!  HE answered a prayer that I had been praying about for almost a year.  A few months ago, I changed the way I was praying about the situation.  God is always trying to teach me to be patient, because He knows I'm not. 

This past weekend, I was able to spend some time with three of my closest friends.  It was awsome to be able to get together, talk about life and our Faith.  I had to work half a day at the bank, so after we closed, I packed up and headed out.  My friend Amy and her husband own a condo in Orange Beach so we stayed there.  We went to the Wharf and walked around, had a drink at Ginny Lane, came back to the condo and got dress, dinner at Cobalt and was home by 10.  Yes, we were a wild group!!!!  Now, we did stay up til 1 in the morning with all the girl talk.  It was a lot of fun but I was glad to get home to see my little man. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine Day!

Blogger Biggest Loser {Week 6}

It's hard to believe I just completed week 6.  Last week went well.  I increased my water a lot and really stuck to my 1200 calories. 

Week 1: 174.8

Week 2: 172.8
Week 3: 170.8
Week 4: 170.6
Week 5: 170.6
Week 6: 168.8

YAY, I finally hit the 160's.  That's 1.8 pounds down from week 5.  My goal is to be at 165 by the end of the month.  I know that's doable!

We ended up going to the Mardi Gras parade on Sunday night.  I'm really glad we did.  It was so much fun and we went home with a ton of beads, moon pies and stuff animals.  We gave Parker some of the beads and will let my sister-in-law have the others and the stuff animals.  She can use them next year in the parade. 

My two favorite guys!  Parker loves his daddy!
He likes to put his beads in the dump truck and dump them out. 
He loves to watch Curious George, AKA the Monkey, on the portable DVD player. 

Have a great day!

Biggest Loser {Week 5}

Well, last week did not go as planned.  I was upset because I busted my booty week 4 but lost .2.  I have a habit of wanting to quit when things get tough.  I could have quit, but I did'nt.  So, here are my numbers:

Week 1: 174.8
Week 2: 172.8
Week 3: 170.8
Week 4: 170.6
Week 5: 170.6

Yes, I lost 0, but that's okay.  I'm back on track this week and I will hit 169 this week.  I have a plan for the week which helps.  Last week, I half way planned our menu which results in bad decisions.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week.

Happy Mardi Gras

We've had a wonderful weekend. It's Mardi Gras time here in the south. My sister and her family came over to go to the KOER parade in Fairhope. Parker loved the parade. One float would go by and he would yell "here comes another one!" My sister-in-law is in the ISIS society tonight, but it looks like daddy will fly solo. Parker woke up congested and I'm not sure it would be a wise idea to take him out in that cold night air.
