Silly Syd

This little girl is the best! She makes me laugh every day! Yesterday she ran up to me very concerned and said, "Mommy, mommy, Carlie spill the water! Man! Freakin!" ........What??! Where did she learn to say freakin? Hahaha, she is so funny and I am so blessed to have her in my life. My days would be so boring without her! I love you sweet girl.

Our little getaway

We were so lucky as to get away for a few days a few weeks ago. My brother and sister in law watched our girls for us and we stayed down in San Diego. We went to La Jolla cove and snorkeled. We saw a ton of of brightly colored fish and were right next to a bunch of seal. Greg almost got attacked by a very protective mother seal. And then we ended the trip with skydiving. It was sooo fun! I loved it! It wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be. I just loved "flying" in the air and the view was amazing, I would do it again tomorrow if it didn't cost 200$. Maybe someday when I'm rich! :)

I got on the scale this morning simply because I was curious, and I have reached my goal....115. Now there is no promising that I will stay there for very long, I didn't do it the way I wanted to which is why im not really jumping for joy. I have had tonsillitis for almost a week. This leaves my tonsils so swollen and in pain that it is extremely hard to swallow. I have had barely any food, mostly just liquids. Im so tired of being sick! This has really hit me though. This week long sickness has taught me something I think..... I NEED to eat healthy always. As easy as it is to just grab some chips or chocolate chip granola bars to snack on I need to be replacing that with fresh fruit and veggies. I need to stock up on the healthy stuff and not even buy the yummy junk. It is so yummy. I wish junk wasn't so yummy. Another one of those things to help us grow I think. Who can be strong and do what they know is good for them? Well I won't promise anything, but im sure going to try! I have had it with being sick and I really don't want to get THIS sick again. So heres the goal to start off with....... sugar once a week, fruit and veggies EVERY DAY. I can do it. I can do it.

family pictures

took some family pictures at the beach. I think I look 14 in this picture, maybe its the flower. haha oh well. Sydnie has a hard time looking at the camera and smiling so it was a miracle we got a good one of her. I don't realize how stressful pictures can be until I'm in front of the camera instead of behind it.

Here I am at 125. I still have 10 more lbs to go but im not in a huge hurry. I feel like once I stop nursing I will be able to loose the weight easier and faster. For now im just working my butt off. (literally) If I reach my goal before then, great. I woke up this morning BEFORE the crack of dawn and went to the spin class at 5:30am. If you want to sweat like no other I highly recommend this class. I am not an early morning person but I have a lot of motivation so it wasnt too hard for me to get out of bed this morning. Anyway, im almost there, so excited!

I seriously cannot believe I was this big! I mean I just had a baby 3 weeks prior but still, nothing like pictures to let you know what you really look like! haha

This is the number that made me jump for joy this morning. For a whole MONTH I was stuck on 130 I couldn't get past this huge wall. It was so frustrating and towards the end got a little depressing. I was told that when you hit a wall you should change it up, so I did. I tried so many new things and kicked up my cardio to the max and for weeks this did nothing. I was at a loss, I had no idea what to do. Well this morning I woke up and got on that scale, and as the numbers jumbled disappointment was ready to set in, when all the sudden it stop at 128.4! I was so excited! Now I know this is only 2 lbs. Whats 2 meesely pounds? Well this just means that I am no longer stuck, that I can keep going on the path to the body I want. So to date I have lost 16 lbs and only have 14 to go. I am going to shoot for 10 until im done nursing. I can't cut my calorie intake down too far just yet. The most important thing about all of this is how I feel. I feel soooo much better. I am more energized and I have a little more confidence about myself. Having babies really does a number on your confidence. Well I shouldn't say having babies, but just your body after having babies. I am so grateful and wouldn't change a single thing about my life especially my babies! I just love them and am willing to go through this 4 more times so I can enjoy the blessing of having babies and raising them. Greg only wants 4 kids so I guess we will see how many more times I will really do this again. Anyway I wanted to share my exciting news with everyone!

Whats happenin lately

Here are a few things we have been up to. I feel like I haven't really taken very many pictures lately, probably because its been cold and we are boring. Also I realized I have hardly any pictures of myself for the past year, probably because I dont really like the way I look in pictures haha. Anyway Carlie is a rolling machine, she is starting to scoot and learn to sit up. She is a happy baby and laughs often.

We went to Vegas, Greg had to go for work so we went along with him and Sydnie saw the lions at the MGM Grand Hotel.
we tried to go swimming, the water was freezing but Sydnie still loved it. Greg lasted about 5 min. and then we all went in the spa.
Two days before Vegas we went to a Jazz/Clippers game, it was family night so we got a good deal on tickets. It was a lot of fun, I enjoy going to sporting events a lot more than watching them on TV, something about the atmosphere makes me have fun. The Clippers won and the only reason we were routing for them was because our friends are Jazz fans and we went with them haha.

Well I have been stuck on 130-131 for about 2 1/2 weeks now and its so frustrating! Every day I get on that scale and the numbers start fluctuating I repeat 129 in my head over and over and every day I am let down. I feel like I'm stuck and I don't know what to do! I'm really unsure of portion size because I am nursing and I know I need those calories to produce milk. If anyone can give me and idea of what the line is so to speak. What can I do to help me loose weight but still be able to give my baby the nutrition that is best for her. Anyway I just have to kick my butt a little harder I guess. Hopefully in a couple weeks I will have a great number to report!

10 Down!

Here it is, my fat picture for all to see. I wasn't going to post this but I am just so proud of the progress I have made so far. I am still not where I want to be but seeing this just motivates me even more. I have lost 10 lbs since I started working out about 2 months ago. If I continue to loose 10 lbs every two months I will be where I want to be by May. It seems far away but this way im not putting too much pressure on myself to hurry and loose the weight. I am so grateful for a wonderful husband who stays with my babies for two hours each day while I go to the gym. I just love him.
