New Blog - Moving to WordPress!

Hi There!

I just wanted to do a quick post that I am moving over to WordPress since blogspot is acting up with my computer or something lol...either way though, it pissed me off so now I have a new blog!

Its not exactly the same, its not mainly about weight loss but I will still be covering that in the new blog. Its mostly an 'about me' type of thing

3rd Times the Charm?

I certainly hope so!

I cannot seem to get out of this funk! I need some motivation and someone to help push me!

I don't know anyone near me or that has the same/similar schedule so that I could COMMIT to meeting with someone and working out. My sister is the only person but she can't go until like 8 or 9 at night, and I'm sorry - I am in sleep/bedtime mode by then lol

AWESOME NEWS though, despite the fact I haven't been logging or exercising I lost another 5 pounds. Course, I was fluctuating for a while between the same 5-6 pounds, something happened & I just dropped it. I'm not going to complain lol - I just have to keep it up and keep dropping!!!!!!

I have been pinteresting in the "Fitness" section & I actually found a couple blogs that will hopefully give me more inspiration! I know I haven't been blogging much lately but it would be nice if I could find some more interactive people to help me a little bit more, I like comments and questions and I just don't get very much of that on here....but yet again, I have like 8 followers so what do I expect? lol ... I need to get out there more!

ANYWAYS, I have a lot going on in my personal life right now, but I need to stop making that an excuse for not working out! I have come to a conclusion that I want to add jogging & bicycling to my list of workouts, but I do need a new pair of shoes & and bike. I will use what I've got for now, but I'll have to start up a small fund until I can get it :)

....OH and I also need to think about HOOPING! Have you heard of this before? ...they sell weighted hoops & you just hula hoop for like 20-30 minutes and you get an AWESOME workout & you also get HOT HOT HOT abs/core....totally gonna get one! I have heard most people recommend, so I might try that.

I'd love to hear from you guys! Please feel free to give any tips, motivation, suggestions you have!

Thanks & Happy Friday!
 (..and Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads out there, including my dad!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Really Hoping This Happens!

Cody got a call from a friend yesterday that he hadn't talked to in  a while. Turns out, that friend works for a Toyota dealership and he is moving up in the company and need someone to replace his position.

Cody has been miserable for sooooooooooooo long at his current job, not that we don't appreciate him having that job - it's just very stressful for him and I just know its time for a change. I really hope that it works out and that he's able to start working there.

It's like less than half the distance from home, would pay about the same & probably would get better over time, and he'd be in a much better working environment.

I've been praying ALLL morning in my head about it, every time I think about it lol. Really mostly because I want Cody to be happy & not so stressed out/pissed off all the time after work, & I think that would do wonder's for him!

Keeping my fingers crossed & keeping my faith in God that this could happen!

Random Thoughts

So for the past couple of years, I've been struggling with something I think many women do in my situation - I want to have kids, like RIGHT NOW lol

I just turned 23, but I have never felt my age. I've always been years beyond my actual age, and I can definitely see that more often the older I get. I know that my body is also sending my brain signals - "hey yo self - you should totally get preggers...your at PRIME baby making age, and you're not getting any younger!" and since I've been with my boyfriend for 5 years now, I feel like we are far enough into our relationship to start thinking about children.  (...well, some would say marriage first then kids, but for some reason I'd rather get pregnant than get married right now and hey its not like I plan on leaving Cody any time soon lol)

Cody's mentioned to me that he definitely wants kids, but his main reason not to is - you guessed it - money. You will always hear people say "you never have enough money, it just always seems to work out one way or another!" or "if that's your reason for not having them - it'll never happen!". I think this is true, but in Cody's defense even though we do make decent paychecks - we have a lot of debt to pay off first. I know that if we weren't paying off debt we would have several hundred dollars left over at the end of the month.

I also have said from the day I knew I wanted to become a mother, that I want to be a stay-at-home mom for the kid's first years. I don't want to miss anything. I think that is the way nature intended, for mothers to have all the time in the world with their little ones. I don't mind working, I will work once they get a little older, I just don't want to have to work to make ends meet when they are newborns - 1 year old(ish). I mean, that's not too much to ask - is it?!?!

Anyways, I just kinda wanted to get that off my chest. It's been a constant thing on my mind every time I see my nieces, every time I see a baby, every time I see a pregnant lady, every-freaking-time I see a commercial for babies/diapers/ just insane and my hormones need to take a chill pill lol

I am confident that things will fall into place when they are supposed to, and if I don't get everything the way I want it - I am OK with that because I know that God has a plan for all of us and that everything happens for a reason. It's just gonna be the way he lays it out in front of me. However it happens it is supposed to be that way, so I just keep that thought in the back of my mind and it helps me get through the day.

I just can't wait for it though, I want to become a mommy so badly it seems to hurt sometimes.
But when the time is right, it'll happen!

Well Hello Again, It's Been A While....

Well, hello again!

It sure has been a while..........I have been out of it lately!

Since my last post a sad event my life beloved Honda was taken away from me!!!!!!!!!!  :'(((

Here's the pictures from when she was murdered...

Goodbye, my love!

It was fun while it lasted, dear Goldie Honda!

RIP 2000 Honda Accord
 Luckily, I was fine. Other than average seat belt bruising and I also sorta hit my knee on the dash when it happened so I had a bruise from that as well. Nothing major though, thankfully.

Good thing is though, is I got a new car out of it! Look at it's sexy-ness.....I've always wanted an SUV, I'm soooooooooooooooo happy I got this one. I gotta name it though, any suggestions??!?!!?!

(OTHER than Silver Bullet I might add, its used waaaay too often and every time I think about my car I dont want to think about someone masturbating so..yeah lol)

2011 Ford Escape

Anyways, I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend! Be safe, but have fun!

...I'll be at home, doing chores and dealing with a leaking roof in our master bedroom...OH YEAH, and our fridge went out, sorta...the fridge part isnt circulating cool air tho it feels like its trying but the freezer is working fine, so we'll be dealing with that too...FUN WEEKEND AHEAD OF ME, HUH?!!??!

...i know you are jealous, don't even try to deny it lol

I will make an effort to get drunk and celebrate though, and I don't drink often so it'll be a special occasion for me. Party whoo! lol done now, bye everyone!

JM-30DS, Day 1

Day 1 was yesterday!

Had a small NSV yesterday - My mind kept coming up with every excuse to put off working out, and the whole time I just kept changing into my workout clothes. Still fighting with myself I put on my shoes. Still fighting to find the right excuse, I said to myself "You're already changed into your gym clothes, how could you change and still not even workout?...its not THAT bad!" ...So I told my mind "F-U" and got to my workout! step at a time! lol, but I did it which is the most important thing!

Today I didnt think I was really sore at all, mostly just stiff - but as today goes on I am feeling the soreness come on.

So after work, I am going to do Day 2 - I'll let ya'll know how it goes!
