Hello beautiful people. It has been incredibly nuts around here lately. So last Sunday my 4 year old daughter was helping daddy clean his new truck and was being a typical 4 year old and not fully paying attention to what she was doing. She took off to run and ran right into my husbands tailgate! Oh my goodness! She had the biggest laceration on her poor little face right under her nose. We had to rush to the hospital and praying the whole way that she wouldn't need stitches. In the end they used glue and she was a trooper the entire time. I was and still am so proud of the way she handled the entire situation. We got the last bit of glue off her last night and it looks so good and is healing fast.
Last Friday, the 13th ohhahhahh, I celebrated my 29th birthday and the 14th we celebrated Valentines Day along with my 9th wedding anniversary! I really enjoyed being able to celebrate it all with my husband and my babies.
So, on my birthday I woke up to a weight of 179! Yahoo! It's been 5 years since I have seen a number in the 170's and it was one amazing birthday present. So, my mother-in-law and I went shopping and I purchased a pair of size 15 jeans!! I got 2 outfits in the JUNIORS department and couldn't be more excited. I spent two and a half years after I had my first baby still sporting maternity clothes because I couldn't fit into my pre-maternity clothes and because I was too depressed to shop for new clothes and because I was truly afraid of what size I was in. After I had my second baby I threw away all of my maternity clothes after I healed from my c-section and I got to work and got into a size 20 jean I was given. I started my fitness journey on and off in May of last year. I basically gave up during the summer because it was "too hot". What kind of excuse is that?! I finally started again in September and have been going strong since. I have lost 24 pounds and have gone from a 20/22 pants and shirt (xl/xxl) to a 14/15 jean (depending on brand) and a 15 (large) shirt! I am not giving up this time. I have given up too many times before and this time I will reach my goal and I will make myself proud. I will for once in my life love and appreciate me.
