Put On Hold

Well I finally did it! I finally added on to my tattoo that way it "flowed" a little better. Here is the new and improved and I LOVE IT!!

Since I had my tattoo redone, I cannot run for at least two weeks. But I am thinking I would like to run this morning. It's been a week and the tattoo has not peeled so I should be ok. Besides, I am a little frustrated since I really wanted to get under 160 by the end of September and well, my weigh in today was 163. I don't see that happening. So I move on. I focus on a new goal. That new goal is to be 155 by the end of October. That is 8 lbs. and I think it is totally achievable! I will have to work hard and really try to stay on track even though there is a lot of things going on this month.

On another note, I have started trying this new thing in my coffee. I heard it is really good for you so I thought I would give it a try and I love it! Instead of using creamer, I add the Silk Pure Coconut milk.

Lastly, I am thinking of doing a giveaway this month so keep checking in!! Happy Saturday!
P.S. I just have to share this picture!
She just sat there and clapped and cheered while watching my a football game! Love this girl!

Fall Decor, Piercings, and More!!

Today has been a busy, busy day so far and its just now lunch time. I guess first things first. I FINALLY found my fall wreath my mother-in-law made me a couple of years ago so I was able to hang it up.

This morning my little one had a doctors appt. and we were planning on getting her ears pierced while we were there. Unfortunately, they were out of earings so we decided to take her to Claire's to have them done and they did a great job! Look how cute:)

She wasn't in the best of mood because when we were at the doctor, she also had all her shots updated. But what a little trooper she was!

And last but not least. Can I just say, for the record, is it is hotter than a mo fo here! I tried running last night around 5 and I was so slow turtles were passing me! Ha! I usually run in the morning, which is cool and a lot easier, clearly. I don't think I will be running in the afternoons until it gets cooloer out. P.S. After a big weekend of pretty much eating like s*** and having a couple cocktails, I finailly weighed myself this morning  and it was 163 exactly. I am pushing myself extra hard on the Shred and my runnning so I hoping to get in the 150's by the end of September. Wish me luck!

Camping Fun

Well I didn't do any sort of weigh in because the hubs and I went on a little mini vacation in our family's newest addition which is a 20' Toy Hauler. We went just up to the local mountains but it sure was fun! Here are a couple pics:)

The hubby is now getting ready for a trip to Colorado for the Firefighter Memorial. As for me, well I am struggling and getting so frustrated with losing weight that I might try weight watchers. I am going to check it out today and see if it's something I can try:) Happy Thursday!

Can you say frazzled??

Firstly, talk about a crazy week! I didn't put in Mondays weigh in because I have pretty much been without a computer due to the fact that some people have nothing better to do but hack into other peoples things, send viruses, etc. So my Monday weigh in was: 162. Apparently the 150's are going to be  a lot harder to get into than I thought, but what else is new! I have been better at putting in my miles (running) and that seems to help but I think I'm still gonna have to step it up a notch. I also am kinda gonna do this 50 day challenge I came up with. I've seen some things similar to it but I targeted what would be more helpful for me. I am gonna do 50 sit-ups for 50 days and see if I can tell a difference in my waistline. Feel free to join me and keep my posted on your progress. I did my first 50 today!

Secondly, I Nova turned 15 months old today and I have been having a lot of questions late;y regarding things she is doing and things she should be doing , so I found this book my mother-in-law gave to me a long time ago while I was still preggers and I have found it quite helpful. Some of you may recognize it:

Have any of you used this book and if so, did you find it useful? I am hoping that it will help me understand some of the things she is going through right  now.

 And lastly,  Sunday we went to the lake and just hung out on the shore. I was able to snap a couple of pics of my little cutie.

Happy Wednesday!
