week 1

So week 1 of "the biggest loser" is done and we are feelin good and looking better! Our grocery bill has also gone down after saying goodbye to all my sweets and extras. Our weigh ins this week: Chris is down 8 pounds and I am down 6. Not bad for one week! We have been really strict with our meals and snacks, we're also working out daily and chugging down the water. I feel encouraged and starting to feel like I CAN do this. I honestly never though I would be the size I was before I got pregnant. I am so close to being there. Once I get to that point, I am not goin to stop. Not going to lie, I did enjoy a couple of sweets this past week. I don't feel guilty about it because I am staying very active and eating very healthy meals and snacks. So week 2 is here and we have set more goals for this week. Looking forward to meeting them and moving forward with this new lifestyle. Goodbye chubby tummy and legs! Oh and Chris and I totally got side tracked the night we were supposed to take our "before" pictures. Shoot. Oh well, you all know how fat we were (still are!)

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
