I am Thankful For...

Wow, so I haven't been on to update in forever, but first I want to comment on the day today! Thanksgiving is special for many reasons. It is the start of the holiday season, which is my favorite time of year, and it is the first occasion of the season where the whole family comes together, which is something that I always love. Here is a photo of my side of the family at dinner this evening! We stuffed ourselves, and Hubby and I had SO much to take home too! I will be eating yummy turkey sandwiches and sweet potatoes for the next week! YUMM!
This Thanksgiving I am thankful for many things:
1. My family

Left to right: Me, Hubby, Grandma, Rod (mom's husband), Andrea (sister), Gabe (nephew), Chad (Gabe's Dad), and Mom. =)

2. My nephew, and getting to watch him grow right before our very eyes!

Here is a close up of my heartbreaker nephew - he is getting so BIG! =) And he has a new trick! I was watching him play in his pack n' play and he literally JUST started pulling himself up on his own, so it is only a matter of time until he takes his first steps! I am so excited for this, and kinda hoping it happens by Christmas! (although that is probably wishful thinking.)

3. My hubby, with whom I am SO happy in every way. He is everything and more to me, and I don't know what I did to deserve such a man, but I will take him

Here he is with Chad, passed out warm and comfy with full bellies =)

4. For all my wonderful friends, without you I wouldn't have a fun life at all! I love this season because it brings out all the love, and I am definately feeling it today!

 Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
The countdown to Christmas is ON! 29 more days!

Catch Up - MHR and Day Zero (thirteen weeks)

Catch up. Yeah. Wow. I've been a slacker this past week!

Ok first, my MHR post. I'll go ahead and do two, since it will be Friday in about two hours anyway!

First, my husband rocks because he has been TOTALLY cool with running me to the gym, staying late at work, and coming back to pick me up, just so that I can get healthy. I love him so much for supporting me in this, and I hope that he gets on the gym bandwagon with me, and gets healthy as well!

Second, and this will be childish but I dont care....My Husband Rocks because he is going to a midnight showing of a certain movie tonight! Which one, do you ask??


My hubby rocks =)


Ok, now for the Day Zero stuff.

Today is week 13, Day 87. Last time I posted I was working on a few things:

First, a correction. I thought I hadn't finished Eclipse yet, but I already have. So, whenever I get back to feeling like reading again, it will be the Lynne Spears book. Just have been all "bookwormed out" lately.

The fitness routine is going well. I was told not to expect results for about 8 weeks, because that is how long it takes for the extra water weight to start burning off. I am starting from scratch on muscle, but sooner or later I will start to gain that and that will burn fat as well. I've been going to classes almost every day, Zumba and BodyPump, and I love it! I also had a personal training session that went really well yesterday. I plan to do another one next Wednesday.

I'm not sure if I'm going to get over to my Grandmother's for Thanksgiving, but I definately want to go see her between now and Christmas. I will call her soon to set something up. Hopefully, Andrea and Gabe can come too.

The getting up early is still not happening, nor is the brushing and flossing, or eating breakfast. Those are SO hard for me, because I literally roll out of bed in the morning most of the time with just enough time to get to work. I need to start going to bed at like midnight, and getting up at 8 am again. I felt better after the inital getting used to it, and I don't really know why I stopped. Not to mention that my teeth are starting to hurt again, and its gross that I don't brush every day. I need to get back to it. I promise to do it before the month is out.

My recipe book is not going well. Somehow I deleted the completed pages that I had, and now don't have the names of the dishes that were lost, or the pictures to remember what they were. I'm really sad, because they were things I really wanted to try, and I've just been very discouraged since then and haven't wanted to work on it. I promise to get back to it soon.

That's about it!

Day Zero Update (twelve weeks)

Well, I had tons of fun this past weekend, and I have been so busy with my new workout buddy I haven't even had time to blog!

Today is technically Week 12, Day 80, since I missed my post on Monday and only took the time to tell you what Hubby got me for my birthday - which was fantastic and I love him SO SO much! =)

So, I am now into month three, and I already have a few things done for this month. This past Saturday I went to visit my nephew at my mom's house, and killed two birds with one stone. Hung out with my mommy some, which I had been meaning to do for a while, and got to see my nephew CRAWL for the first time (for my eyes, he's been crawling for about two weeks now!!) during the visit. I promise to take some more pictures of him REALLLL soon! He is getting SO big, and he is a handsome little devil! I love him so much!

I also spent some time with my best friend, Jess today! She asked me to come over to her house, and we watched the Garfield Thanksgiving and Christmas specials together, and just hung out for a while. It was really nice. I'm still one "girls night" behind from last month, but I already have a date set for the next girls night! CHISTMAS TREE DECORATING, on the 28th of November, with my Trishie at her house! Technically that is into Month 4, but then on the 5th of December she is coming down to my house to help me! I am so excited for Christmas I can't stand it, but I am trying to hold it in until after Thanksgiving! Let's see how well that goes. LOL

I also completed another goal this week, #24 - take an arobics class at a gym. Since I joined Golds I have started to do Zumba classes and I love them! But, I still want to take an actual dance class at a studio (if it is possible) so I moved that to a seperate goal to replace those apartment goals that I won't be doing anymore, since we don't know how much longer we will be here.

I have also determined that based on the number of movies I have already seen on the AFI 100 list I need to watch about 3 of the movies a month to get them done by the end of the time period. We have started watching Star Trek: TNG and have completed three episodes, and I believe I have watched disc one of season one of the Gilmore Girls already too.

I also finished the new Sisterhood book - it was so good! I am now finishing up Eclipse, and then it is probably on to the Lynne Spears book about the troubles with her two girls. I'm actually intreagued with this book, it should be a good read.

I have started the data entry on my recipe book, and I already have a good chunk of it done. Depending on the situation tomorrow night, I may be able to get more of it done.

On the to-do list this month:

Visit with my Grandmother either Thanksgiving time or Christmas time.
Get back to getting up early, breakfast, and brushing/flossing daily. I NEED to stop sleeping in, it is bad for me.
Complete a new recipe for dinner and blog about it.
Keep up my fitness routine, and my diet routine w/cutting out soda.

That's all I can handle this evening. It's 2 am and I have to work in the morning. I will write more soon!

I'm the birthday girl!


I am so happy =) He actually listened to what I wanted for my birthday and got it! It's so pretty and warm!

That is all. =)

My Husband Rocks!



I'm the big two-five, ugh! lol So, haven't done much this morning except went to a bodypump class with Angel, (KICKED MY ARSE!) and I'm going to lunch with my mom here in a few. I have to work tonight, which should be fun, and then afterwards my maid of honor, Jess, Hubby, and Ben and I are going out to dinner. Should be fun, and I'll get one drink. MMMM I can taste the Applebees already!! Yay!

So, my husband rocks and all I'm going to say is this:

I LOVE SURPRISES! He managed to order something for me, and I didn't know. Don't know how much it costs, where it came from or anything! I have deliberately not checked the bank account because I don't want to ruin it, but I will know tonight!! I can't wait to tell you all what he got me!

Day Zero Update (Ten weeks)

Today is Week 10, Day 70! And I have some FaNtAsTiC news! I have found a workout buddy! I am so so so excited about this, because she is about the same weight as me and wants to lose about the same amount, and she used to be in the marine corps so I know she will be dedicated and help my lazy ARSE get to Zumba class! And her name truly fits her now: Angel =) She is my workout Angel!! lol I can't wait to get started, we are going to a $5 Zumba class on Tuesday evening.

So I think this is going to motivate me to get back on the wagon on alot of things. First, no more soda, except maybe one a week for a treat, because I love my cherry cokes at work. Second, eating breakfast every morning. Once we get the house cleaned up I am going to start getting up early again to eat breakfast and brush my teeth and such. Hubby is just going to have to suck it up and either get up with me, or sleep like crap for another hour. His choice =)

I'm already challenged with this darn Sudoku puzzle, and its driving me crazy! lol

I haven't done my recipe book yet, but if we get done the cleaning that we have to do today before its too late I may start on it tonight, because it shouldn't take me long as I don't have THAT many recipes yet.

The new Sisterhood book is really good so far, but I haven't picked it up in a few days, because of this whole Haunted Week thing for my facebook game. I also had started on the background profile of one of my characters in my romance, but haven't done anything more with it so far this week. I will probably work on it a little bit here soon. It's not like there is a rush to get it done. I have three years to write it, I'm sure I will get inspiration in due time.

I think that's all the catch up I needed to do! Now for a little fun. My birthday is this Friday, and Halloween was this past Saturday. I won't post the pictures, because they are the reason for this new workout plan being created, as I am totally embarrassed at how big I have gotten, but we had tons of fun, and if you really want to see the pictures, you can search for me on Facebook, they are there in all their overweight glory. I am losing this weight! I am thinking about taking before and after pics to motivate me further.

That's it! Have a good day, world!
