My 5 Minute Work Out!

I've found a work out that I like to do at home again! It'll shake things up enough where I think I'll keep doing it. I did it yesterday and I'm sore in all the right places. haha. Here is the link to it... 

I'm going to add sit-ups to the routine just because I need to work on my belly. So, technically it'll be a 6 minute routine but I can live with that. I never thought a 1 minute plank would make me sore. But it has. My kids were trying to do the push ups with me, which made me laugh because they would get down on their hands and just put their heads on the ground. lol or just lower their hips and keep their arms straight. Silly kids. 

I'll be lucky if I finish this month at what I started at. Hopefully with this new routine added to the day, I'll break my plateau and lose a little for the month of April. I think last year, April was my 10 pound weight loss month. I'm not going to AIM for that, because that's a giant goal for me I think, but I'll settle for around 5. At least. We'll see I guess. I wish Spaghetti Squash would hurry up and come into season. ugh...

Short and sweet, but I've got babies to feed because they're cranky as shit and starting to get on my last nerve. Hailey is the biggest damn drama queen I've ever seen.

Slight Bump in the Road...

I'm not happy with myself. I started off this month with a contest between Lea Anne, Brooke and myself and I weighed 139lbs. I weighed myself today... 143.5lbs. One word. Disappointed. 
I've worked really hard to get to where I am, and I've just been screwing around. I tell you what though.. I can see just how fast that weight can be put back on. Kinda like a wake up call in a way I guess. I need to start running again.. I have my new Ipod and everything and a new damn arm strap for it and shit and I haven't gotten on my treadmill since that stupid Funnel Cake 5k!! How lame am I?

I've got too much going on during the day. I don't have time during the kids naps because I have to eat lunch and then I have to work out before Jacob gets out of school. I can't when I get done working out because I can't just leave the kids in the house alone. Those are just a few of the excuses I give myself. Lame. 
I realize that it's only a 4.5 pound weight gain.. but thats a MONTH OF WORK DOWN THE DRAIN. and It took LESS than a month to put it back on. 

Bottom line.
I'm drinking my water again, I'm eating healthy again, I'm GOING to start running again, soon. and I'm going to start working out at home again. I feel lame. I don't like feeling lame. I'd be around 134 pounds right now if that 4.5 was a LOSS instead of a GAIN. 

It's time to get back on track. I've said that before, but I'm serious as shit this time. Fuuuck all the bullshit. O_o
this was me in 2011....
My son took this pic of me and my husband at the Abilene Zoo this past weekend. Where the hell did those boobs go man?
I don't want to look like that ever again. I wish I could win the lotto... A LOT of problems would be solved. I'd have a personal trainer.. Lea Anne... A chef...if she wanted the job, Lea Anne's wife Whitney.. and a family nurse.. Brooke. LOL I'd pay for all of their college and housing! Assuming of course I won like.. a few million. even if I won a few hundred thousand, they'd be debt free.. lots of people would dang it. 
I can't start talking about the lottery... lol I have all my plans mapped out. Now, I just need those damn planets to align just right for me. ugh....

K... I've vented enough. Starting off the morning with a tiny cup of coffee, some egg whites and turkey bacon. yay.

The Plateau.....

So, I'm pretty annoyed with myself. I've lost little to no weight in the past 2 months. I know I only have myself to blame, but it's not going to stop me from bitching about it. DAMN YOU FOOD!!!!
I'm starting my food diary again because I apparently can't watch what I eat by myself. O_o So far, I've had my normal cup of coffee, which is really like half a cup, and 2 slices of toast. Hopefully for lunch I'll have something good and healthy. I bought some apples, yesterday so maybe I'll eat something with yogurt and fruit and ... something else. ugh

I have been lifting my weights a LOT more than usual. My arms are sore so thats good. I need to get some heavier ones though, my 8 lb weights just aren't that heavy anymore. haha! I guess that's a good thing.

OK, so enough about the weight loss... Yesterday I took my almost 8 year old to the dentist for a "robot tooth" and a filling. He calls the silver cap a robot tooth.. I guess because it's silver. IDK.. but whatever. We got there and all was good.. We got called back and they took us into the room, Jacob climbed up on the chair and at this point, everything was still good. Then the dentist came in. Jacob had the little laughing gas nose thing on and I could tell he was a little... off.. He was talking to the dentist about stuff, and the dentist told him "ok, time to make the sugar bugs go to sleep." and that was it. Jacob started FREAKING out. He bit the dentist, so he told the hygienest lady to go ahead and do the fillings he needed and he'd come back in a few minutes when she was done and Jacob had a chance to calm down. So, she did her job, and did it well... Jacob didn't have any issues with getting the fillings, he was good the whole time. And then it happened again... The dentist came in. He sat next to Jacob and told him he was proud of him for doing so well with the fillings, and that it was time to put the sugar bugs to sleep so he could get his robot tooth. He told Jacob "open up big!" and Jacob did, and then he saw the slight glimmer of the silver syringe thing for the shot they give your gums to make your shit fall asleep.. and he FREAKED out again... bit the dentist again, and this time the dentist was pissed. I would have been too! But he said "ok, enough of this, I'm going to refer you to a pediatric dentist who can fully sedate him." and walked out. 
Yep... that just happened. 

My mom had told him that if he was brave, he could have a new Lego toy because she was going to be at Walmart while we were at the dentist. So I texted her asap and told her NO WAY on the toy. NO WAY. All I could tell Jacob at the time was 'I'm incredibly disappointed in you.'  That's worse on him than telling him anything about being mad. Then on the way home I told him he wasn't going to go to Granna's house either and he started bawling.... Then I had to tell him NOW because he didn't get the shot, he was going to have to get put completely to sleep.. and THAT freaked him out. He was asking me to call the dentist and try to let them do it again.. Nope.. I'm pretty sure they don't want to deal with him again. She was pretty reluctant to make the 6mo cleaning appt. I think I'm going to cancel it anyways and we'll be going to a new dentist. Allen and I use Twin Mountain Dentistry here in San Angelo and they're freaking awesome. I've never been so comfortable at a dentist. They're super gentile too. We'll see... Maybe between now and August he'll grow up a little more and stop flipping out about every little thing. 

So... to recap... I'm tired of being fat, so I'm doing my food diary again and my 7 year old acts like a 3 year old at the dentist. woot woot. Oh and this time change can kiss my ass too. Losing an hour of sleep is stupid.

Walked the KOA.

Brooke, Lea Anne, Whitney and I walked the KOA today. It was so much easier than I remember. Of course, I was about 55lbs heavier last time I walked it and was pushing a stroller with a 10lb baby in it. Still, I think maybe Tuesday morning I'll go out there and maybe...jog it...! We'll see. My mom found a pic from when we used to walk it before I lost weight... This is me from behind. 
This was taken May 18th 2011. DAMN!

I seriously look mighty from back here. Ooh... LeaAnne shared a pic with me today on FB that the San Angelo Road Lizards had taken of us at the 5k we did.. Pretty fucking awesome considering I had nothing from that day other than the little list of people I took a pic of. That, and my number that's stuck to my fridge. lol 
The first thing I noticed, was my boobs look like they're lopsided and floppin to the left. damn it. haha that and my pants look like I'm running in a skirt. Something has to be done about both issues. Soon.
That girl behind me, it was her first 5k too... and it was my goal to finish before her.. but 2 seconds after this pic, she sped past Lea Anne and I like she had turbo boosters on. I was sort of bummed out till I found some bagels... Then all was right with the world again.

I'm excited that I'm getting motivated again! I weighed and measured yesterday at Curves and I'm no longer considered "Obese". WOOT! My BMI or whatever is in the "normal" range. I'm pretty damn proud of that. 

Check this video out... and watch till 3:38 at least. His face KILLS me.
