The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.


Well, today was weigh in day. Ugh. Will there come a day that I don't dread that damn scale so much? Just walking past it gives me the heebie jeebies. But I did weigh in. And the good is I went in the right direction. I didn't stay in the same spot or go the wrong way. I was happy with that. I am proud of that. But the bad is I only lost one pound. I'm at 213.  At the very least I wanted to lose one pound a week. At the most? I wanted two pounds a week, which would have put me at my first … [Continue Reading...]

The Photography Dream

Heart Twins

I have dreamed of being a photographer since the 2nd grade. The look of someone carrying a 'professional' camera and taking picture after picture just always looked amazing to me. I was always fascinated. I started to really dream of the profession when the movie Step Mom came out. I loved watching Julia Roberts just go crazy with her awesome, super fast, clicky, camera! A good reason to want to become a photographer huh? Ha! Courtesy of: SnapKnot - Find Local Wedding Photographers Well … [Continue Reading...]

It’s Time to Get Real.


Thank you all so much for the love from yesterday's post. It was kinda a down-in-the-dumps-post, but after the week I had, I just felt like venting. It was the roughest week we had in a while and I apparently just needed to blow off some steam. But thank you for all your offers of help. We truly appreciate it! I think just getting out of the house once in a blue moon would help tremendously. But onto something new. Like.... Kicking some fat's ass??? So. I have been contemplating this post … [Continue Reading...]


Kangaroo Time :)

I am tired. I am tired of so many things. I realized Tuesday night, when the kids had gone to bed, and we were picking up, just how tired, exhausted, and stressed we both are. Jason and I were so incredibly frustrated that we were literally sternly putting dishes away and doing all but freaking the fuck out. But trying to hold our composure and not attacking each other. Because we weren't upset with each other. Just our situation. For starters, our house is never ending. And I'm not … [Continue Reading...]

Twinnies are 4 Months!

4 Months B

I have some chunkers on my hands! And I love each and every roll! And they are 4 months old now!! They were 4 months on July 14th, and don't ask me how many weeks that is. Because I don't know. Sue me.   Seriously, do they look like they were preemies? Absolutely not! Everywhere I go, I'm told how big they are, and they've never seen twins that big, and look at those giant rolls! Oh I know! They weren't always this big. But we are sure … [Continue Reading...]

Work Out Week Two


Well, our second week of Kicking Fat's Ass has ended and a lot of sweat had been shed. I have already posted about the first half of the week, but let's talk about the second half, shall we? Last Thursday was bike day, so we got up at 5 am, met at 5:20-ish and rode for about 10 miles. But damn. I was seriously struggling. I felt like with every bike ride it was getting harder and harder. My gears weren't shifting and hadn't for awhile. So I was going 10 miles on gear 2 or 3. I was peddling as … [Continue Reading...]

Kicking Fat’s Ass Start of Week 2


Oh where to begin...? We'll just start with the honest truth... I failed some and I rocked some since Saturday. I didn't work out thru the weekend and had Taco Johns.... That's my epic fail. BUT, I was headed to Subway when it started pouring!! And as someone who is addicted to food, decided that I didn't want to get out in the rain, get soaked, come back out to the vehicle and get more soaked, including my food. So... instead of taking a left to Subway, I took a right to good ol' … [Continue Reading...]

Weekend Relaxation with Spider-Man


For the first time in a loooong time, we finally had a weekend with no plans. And it was amaze-balls. We basically did nothing. Yes, I could have cleaned, gone grocery shopping, really got organized, did some chores around here that need to be done. But damn it, we haven't had a weekend with nothing to do in months. And I mean, long before the twins were born. And frankly. I wanted to do tidily squat. So I did just that. I did want I wanted to. I took Friday off to have a 'Me' day. Most … [Continue Reading...]

First True Week of Kicking Fat’s Ass


Ahhhhhhh! I just got done with my bike ride and decided to sit down and start this post. My legs are all... weird. You know that feeling after you work out, and the muscles that were worked start pulsing and going spastic? Ya... it's the weirdest feeling. It's time to share Kicking Fat's Ass week 1. I had started a couple weeks ago, but schedules always got in the way. But I think I have a system down now. I'll try to keep an update of my activities at the end of each week! :) But this week … [Continue Reading...]

July 4th Weekend


Happy {late} Birthday America! How did you celebrate the most famous birthday of all? I tell you what, I need a day just to recover from the 3 day weekend... phew. But July 4th is my favorite holiday of all! No stress from purchasing presents for people and guessing what they really want that's in your extremely small budget. No running to 8000 houses in a matter of two days. No figuring out how to fit the 100 new toys your children got into their already over-stuffed bedroom. Just fun, … [Continue Reading...]
