Total Goal

Tubb of Tuesday

Well I stepped on the scale this morning with high hopes, I was very disappointed. The scale says 189 pounds! Huh? that's up over 2 pounds! Oh well I'll live. I got to much else on my mind.

Yesterday all day I started getting pains in my tummy area. They feel like hunger pains only higher up under my boobs. They aren't all that painful really, there's a constant "I'm kind of okay with this" pain most of the time with a stab of"this really sucks" once in a while. Like I said it feels like hunger pains, my tummy growls, I eat something, but it doesn't go away. It's weird! It's annoying! If it continues after today I'll go see my Doc. I've never felt anything like it.

The other thing I got on my mind is all the work ahead of me at our house. Earl and I have come to the joint conclusion that our current house is a little small for our growing family. Like I've said before we are going to start trying for another baby in the fall. That puts Evan in the larger of 2 rooms upstairs, the new baby in Evan's old room, and Josh where? Not to mention we lose our guest bedroom for Evan, our downstairs room is housing our computers, so if we turn the computer room into our guest room (for Crystal and the kids, my uncle etc.) where do we put our computers? With even one small child we don't want our computers out in the living room, not to mention Earl's lack of organization in this room. So all in all we've decided that a new house is in our future (different not brand new-are you kidding me! $$$$/ no yard! no thanks!). Not now mind you, we will need to do some work to our current house in order to get top $. Our house was just appraised at 405 before xmas. A house in the size and number of bedrooms we want is 400 -500. So I think we are sitting pretty right now with only 210 mortgaged. But we'll see I'm hoping the market doesn't take a nose dive when we're ready to make the big move. I know we will have to update the kitchen, finish the bathroom down stairs, paint the basement, and give the house another dose of curb appeal. This will take money, and time, so our move probably won't be till at the soonest next year.

That's it for me today. Have a good one ladies.

A quick Denise update

Well its now 8am and Evan has been up since 6! WTF! Well at least he slept through the night, so I can't complain to much. So... yup I'm tired. It's not like he goes to bed and I do the same. I get my "me time" for a few hours. I'm hoping he goes down for a nap today. I have to work tonight and I know it will be relatively physical. There's a plant order on the way, time to move a jungle again. Things are getting more exciting around Rona Green house again. Believe it or not we are already getting ready for our busy season. I have product training on March 3rd for things like fertilizer, seeds, grass and such. I'm really looking forward to next month when the block rep will be coming to talk to us. I know, I know, being excited about learning about blocks sounds weird, but I really want to know more. Probably because we are planning on using some this year. I hope, hope, hope we will get a lot accomplished this summer on the yard. A new fence is a definite, but here's hoping flower beds are in my near future. This will be the 3rd year I've wanted to get them in, so here's hopping. I'm sick of the front of our house looking like crap, not to mention that we're planning on trying for another baby in the fall, so next summer would probably be a write off on the $ end of things.

The temporary bump in my weight loss battle is over. Evan is still being a handful, so I don't really know why I feel better. Maybe the level of craziness has come down, or maybe I've just become accustomed to it. lol. I've been doing pretty good most of this week. I feel skinner. So here's hopping there will be a loss on the scale tomorrow.

Have a good one ladies!

I just got tsk, tsked for not posting my weigh ins. So heres whats been happening. Evan has started his terrible 2s early. He wount eat very much, I have to try 3 diffrent food items to get him to eat anything, he's having fits at bed time to the point he's throwing up, and he's hiting, kicking and just generaly being a monster!
So I have weighed in but didn't have time to report my findings. His the short of it:
last week-gained 3 onces
this week-stayed the same
I've been finding I'm starting to fall off the weight loss banwagen. I've got my feet on the ground and I'm holding on for dear life! Things seem to be beyond stressful right now. Yes, I know, I know, there will always be stress and it's no excuse. I'm exosted! Drained! I'm unmotivated! I'm craving chocolet oh and sleep too! I'll get back on the banwagen when I feel better. For now, I'm not letting myself go completly, I'm still semi watching what I eat, I'm not gaining back everything I've lost, so I'm okay with that.
I'll let you know when I'm all gun-ho again, have a good one ladies!

Well I steped on the scale after a week or rather weekend of indulgence. I was expecting the worse! But I got an "okay" instead I'm up .3 for a total weight of 187.7 after the weekend of pizza one night, A & W with a milk shack, popcorn (more then I should have) and just general lazyness, I'll take a .3 gain, it's not that bad and I deserve it.

I have a few new Evan developments to report. He's still not talking much but his word used most often is UP. He uses it at the top of the stairs when I leave him down there to run up and get something, he uses it when he's in his crib and I'm still in bed, on the moniter I hear up, up, up over and over, louder and louder. It makes me giggle and I get up. He's sooo bossy!

His other new skill is pointing to his nose, eyes, mouth and ears. Guess all that reading and pointing game is paying off. If you say "Evan show me where your nose is." he points to the end of his nose, then moves his finger to his nostril and inserts and laughs! What a goober!

For some reason my spell check isn't working, so sorry about all the mistakes.

Well have a good one ladies!
