What the heck is going on.

I'm so tired of Doc McStuffins... Holy Crap.
Anyways. So, I'm not actively trying to lose weight right now... as stupid as that is. I should have put that in past tense.. but I'm too lazy to go back. This blog is all about moving forward today. Yeah, I've gone a freaking year without losing anything. I've bounced around from 139lbs - 147lbs. I'm not HAPPY about that, but I'm thankful I've been able to keep off the other 45+ lbs. I've noticed lately though, that it seems that my body wants to start losing weight again. I'll make small tiny changes in my eating for like 2 days and lose weight. Where before, I was going hard, and not getting any results. 

I have a wedding to be in at the end of March... so, I guess I should kind of get on it. Here are some excuses I've been giving to myself the past few months. 

1. Allen's schedule has been so crazy lately. By the time he gets home, it's too late for me to go anywhere.
2. I don't have the gas to go all the way across town 3 times a week.
3. My back has been hurting a lot
4. I somehow pulled something in my left food.. and my right foot is STILL injured from when I fell down the stairs chasing the stupid cat. 

I don't know how to get my motivation back! I've been trying to find it for a fucking year. I know I have less to lose now, to be at my goal weight than I did when I started, but it's still hard. 
Really freaking hard. 

Great... Now Sophia the First is on. O_o 

Oh... so Allen got reunited with a long lost friend the other day. It was really cute. He hasn't seen him since 2005 and they were like brothers. Allen's always talked about him, and we've looked for him before.. I've looked for him A LOT. I just had no idea where to even start because Allen didn't have any clue where he would have been. Thank goodness for Facebook. 
We're working on getting him over here asap. I talked to him for about 3 hours yesterday, and it's crazy... I've never met this guy before but I feel like we're going to be GREAT friends. He's hilarious.
I'm excited to get these two together. 

So... I went to the Dr. again Monday to figure out whats going on with me and the pain I'm having.. and she basically told me that because I wasn't coming up off the table during my exam, that it must not be that bad. I was prescribed pain meds (greaaaaaat) and She was supposed to get another dr. to contact me in regards to getting a freaking procedure done.. and here we are on Friday.. with STILL no call about anything. I hate it. That dr. made me feel like I was lying about the pain... Which makes me not even want to go back to anyone. THATS why I HATE going to the dr. I tell you that I'm in TONS of pain EVERY month for DAYS... but because I didn't react horribly in the office, it must not be that bad. Not to mention, she told me all my labs and everything were normal... 
She took those labs in 2012.... What year is this now? 2014?... that's what I thought too... 

Allen got some crazy news yesterday at work as well... Now I'm all stressed out again and my eye is twitching. I'm not telling ANYONE ANYTHING till we know more.. .LOTS more info about whats going on. Thats a lie... I've told a few people.. but only because if I didn't my freaking head would explode. 

Now... today I'm going to try to focus on drinking water. I honestly can't remember the last time I had a bottle of water. (Sorry Lea Anne... don't murder me.) 

Like I said ... This blog today... is about moving forward. 
My year of the lazies is over...
I've also decided to wash my hands of the family I have here that doesn't give a shit. 
The last time I saw my dad, was at my grandpa's funeral. (His dad) I wasn't included in anything, he walked right past me, shook my hand.... no hug... I was VISIBLY upset.. but Nothing. I spoke a little with him at the cemetery but we were interrupted pretty quickly by someone who wants him to have nothing to do with me. No call on Thanksgiving, nothing on his grand kid's birthdays, no calls for Christmas, new years, nothing. FUCK it. I'm done. It's just hard to really say that for me. Because it really hurts. 
Shit.. I probably need some kind of therapy. hahaha O_O

nah... I'm done. I'm strong. Tons of daughters don't have a relationship with their fathers. My situation just sucks because I went from extreme daddy's girl to outcast of his family. 

I need something to Hulk Smash.
Or I guess I could do laundry O_o

Here is to a quick month of weight loss! Hopefully by this time in March I'll be 10lbs smaller, and my arms won't look like turkey legs!

First Time For Everything..

So... Allen and I got new phones! The samsung galaxy S3. It had an app for blogging so guess what's up!!? I can blog from my phone now.
This is by far the coolest phone I've ever owned. Lol who needs a laptop!?
I still do. Haha
So In the last blog post I was talking about Jacobs snaggle tooth... remember? About him having to take pictures... yeah we got the proofs yesterday. 
Proofs being the key word... Jacob got to school and decided he would just throw the envelope away...... thanks. NOW not only is the package I wanted $6.00 more.. I also habe to pay for shipping...which is $7.50. Yay Jacob!
Thanks kid. Gah.
I'm doing so many arm exercises in preparation for Kambria's stupid wedding. Her weddings not stupid. Me wearing a dress is stupid. A spaghetti strap one at that. Not cute.
K... oh now that I have a new phone I'm super addicted to snapchat again. Haha man its fun.

Pretty Random... Whoop

I have a few funny stories I guess I can post on here now... I have a little more time now... 
So the other night I was putting lotion on Allen's back because he's all ashy in the winter.. and it was night time, after his shower... He got really quiet and I thought to myself... Surely he's not going to fall asleep......

 And then he did. 
Standing up. 
 He was standing up in front of the sink, so his hands were on the counter and when he fell he made a gigantic mess of everything that was on it. Ay... 

So I guess that wasn't super funny.. but it was to me. O_o 
Jacob lost his 4th tooth recently. It was a pain in the ass. I thought we were going to have to take him to the dentist because this kid would NOT pull that tooth.. I could see his adult tooth coming in behind it. (I'm talking about his top right tooth) Also... it was so so so loose, that when he smiled it would poke out the front of his lips. He had school pictures during this time... $42.00 on some snaggle tooth pictures. I asked him when he got home that day if he took nice pictures.. and he said "mom... snaggle tooth.. remember?" haha yes.. how could I forget. 
You can't see it well in this pic,.. but trust me... it stuck out a mile. 

I went to Curves for the first time since last month the other day... to weigh in.. because I haven't been since LAST weigh in.. which is BAD.. but I made the board anyways.. in Inches Lost. hahaha I don't know how.. but you know what? I'll take it. With our income tax, some of it., we're going to get Allen into shape. LOL I'm going to have Lea Anne tone him up and make him happy again. lol He's gotten a little pooch belly over the past 5 years that we've been together, and he's not happy about it. 
He's healthy now... lol

Now... changing the subject to something SUPER exciting.... 
My next tattoo!!!
I don't know where I'm going to get it yet.. I am thinking on my forearm... like, where some people usually put First/Last names. 
In this general area.. but maybe more in the middle... 
Either way, I'm sure my mom will LOVE it. lol 
She hates all of my tattoos. 
They're so addicting though. They don't hurt that bad, and they're so pretty... If you get the right person to do them anyways. 

Oh man we're going to the Coast again for our anniversary this year... this time we're going to try to stay till Tuesday instead of Monday.. That Monday is always a holiday anyways... Columbus day or some shit. Anyways, the place we stay has a buy 3 nights get one free... so uh, yeah, WHY NOT? ESPECIALLY since I think this is going to be our last year doing this... Once the babies start school it'll be really hard to coordinate baby sitting for 4 days.. Harder more for Hailey and Ethan... Jacob's dad can keep him while we're gone now that he's moving back to San Angelo. But with my mom living like, 20 mins out of town,.. taking the kids to school and going to get them would be a pain.
I think we're going to save up and take the kids to Dallas to the Lego land place they have. They'll all love that. But I want to stay in a nice room, so we're going to save up for a bit. 
My way of saving up....
Duct taping an empty Quaker Oatmeal Old Fashioned Oats container and making a little slit at the top for money. Every time we have random dollars, or quarters we stuff it in there. I know I've already put several 5's and 10's in there... and Allen said he's put a few in there as well, so hopefully we'll have some kinda something saved up by then. 
Oh, I do it that way because I'm much too lazy to go to all the effort to get the money out... I put like 4 or 5 layers of Duct tape on that thing... 

awww crap... Ethan just yelled he's mad at me. I took his DVD player away because he's knocked it off the tv two different times. We just bought this stupid thing and he's already trying to break it. 
Be mad little boy... He'll forget why he's mad here in a little while. Hailey will come give me a hug or talk to me, and he'll FREAK. Dang Mamma's boy.

Holy Crap...

So much crap has gone on since my previous post... I lost myself a little, gave up for a second.. or just got super lazy.. I'm not sure. Whatever though. I've maintained my weight at a steady 145-148 and for now, that's ok with me. I am in a wedding in March though... so I'm working towards looking semi OK in a mother fu#*ing dress. Like, a real, legit dress. O_o Not cool... AND the Bride wants me to wear HEELS. Heels. 
I hope she has someone taking video because I would REALLY like to see myself rubber ankleing it down the isle. Better me than her I guess..
I guess.

My toe still hurts from when I fell after chasing the cat.. Not sure what I did to it.. Also, when I take a step, and I'm wearing my Chuck Taylors, my middle toe tingles like it's asleep. Awesome right? haha Went to the chiropractor yesterday and I was all jacked up. No wonder I've been having migraines lately. He said my neck was all wacky and of course, between my shoulder blades till. ugh.

I need to start doing my blog again.. I did that Jillian Michael's class at Curves the other day and I like it. I like it but it's hard work. hahah Not only have I not worked out like that in about... 2 months or something, Old people were doing it too, and doing it better.. so I felt like I had to REALLY push myself. Allen reminded me when I got home, it's not like I'm 18... I'm almost 30. 
Almost fucking 30. 
Thanks Honey.

I've started taking pictures of Allen at night while he's sleeping on the couch and posting them on Instagram. They're amazing. hahah I'm tagging them #sleepingbeauty #husbandsasleep #feetgoupeyelidsgodown I have about 8 of them so far. I'm sure I'll have a LOT more by this time next month. He doesn't have Instagram... ahaha I only do it when he's sitting up and we're supposed to be watching our shows or playing cards or something... I'll look over and boom, he's sleeping. Happens EVERY night. He's lucky if he stays awake past 10pm. 

I've almost saved up $40.00 with Survey Savvy. I take these dumb little surveys for money and I'm getting excited to cash it out! lol That's money for answering some stupid questions about shopping online vs. shopping in a store... or do I shop for groceries more online or in person? Super easy stuff man. Go Here if you want to make a little extra cash by doing nothing more than clicking a few things on the computer. You're online anyways... ya know?

Well... I'm going to get off here.. We're plugging in Allen's laptop to the TV so we can watch The Croods on Netflix with the babies! It'll be a brisk 20 degrees outside today, so there is no way I'm going to work out.... I'll try to be on here to update more... I miss it.
