Happy Thought # 31

I know it sounds bad but this kind of made me laugh.
Being a working mom has been kind of crazy trying to run errands and make sure everything is taken care of.  I enjoy being busy and being useful but it also makes me appreciate the time I spent at home doing nothing. lol

Happy Thought #30

Self Explanatory ;-)

Weigh In


Yay!! I lost a little from the previous week!!
Although I have to admit I came home and kind of ate my anger and annoyance today.
Good thing I weigh myself in the morning.
Monkey bread and coke definitely is not a recipe for success.
I did good with my goals though.
No eating past 6pm
I cant remember what the others were. hahaha

Every morning the sun has been hitting me just right and shining a bit through my window.  Instead of annoying me it has actually been making me smile a bit.  It always nice to get some sunshine in.

I have come to love trying Ben and Jerry's flavors of ice cream.  I love to just go stand in the freezer aisle to see what new flavors and what names there are.  They have some yummy ones and some I would never touch.  I just wish they weren't so expensive

Weighing In

Ok.  I am ready to get serious about taking my weight down.  I worked so hard to get it down just to have it go right back up in a blink of an eye.  It really is true what they say, "It takes only a week to put the weight on but a year to take it off."  I dont think it will take that long for me to take off mine.  At least I am crossing my fingers that it wont. 

Today I weighed in at 177.6lbs and I would really like to get down to 140 - 145lbs.  I believe that is a healthy weight for me and it wont make me stick skinny but it will make me healthy.  I have created some goal to help get close to this number and that is: Exercise a little each day, Dont eat past six, Drink lots of water, Get a smoothie in once a day. 

I can exercise a little or lot but as long as I get this body moving to let it know it needs to be active that is what counts.  I have always had great success when I stopped eating at six.  It gives the body time to digest and work off the days meal especially before bed time.  Which is another work out if you play your cards right.  Water and smoothies are good because they clean out the system in a sense.  You know you are getting rid of excess when you are using the potty.  I am just saying. 

Last but not least plenty of sleep which I can hear my bed calling me now.  Hope you all had a fabulous monday!!

Happy Thought #23

Do any of you have that one piece of clothing that makes you feel super sexy no matter what?!!  I have it with these lace pink panties I got from Walmart of all places.  I have been feeling fat lately and for some reason when I put these on I felt sexy, gorgeous and ready to tackle the world.  It made me happy and silly throughout the day.  Underwear really does make a difference.  hahahaha  Happy Monday to everyone!! ;)

Contemplating

I was thinking about all the blogs I have started, thought about, and created and wondering, "Why the hell do I create all of these blogs?!"  Each of my blogs have a little part of me.  My sexual part, my angry part, my weightloss journey part, my need to be happy part.  Why cant I just have all of those parts written in one big blog?  Not that I am asking you but these are the thoughts that go through my head.  I have always hid parts of me and I felt good about it.  I enjoyed having the secret.  But then I started opening myself up more, struggling with the me that IS me and ended up being afraid of all those quirky crazy sides of me.

Are you still with me?  It is confusing I know and I am being a little more analytical then I need to be but it is a constant struggle.  I want to let people see who I really am but not everyone can handle that. I dont want to deal with their criticism or THEIR truth.  I guess that is reason enough why I dont talk much on social sites and I dont talk much really in person.  I have gotten tired of getting beat down.  It is sad really.  Crazy really.  Hope I can break free of it all.

Happy Thought #22



My kids were laughing randomly and they wouldnt stop. They like to sit and stare at each other and just start laughing. Sometimes it is funny. Sometimes it is annoying. But for the most part it makes me happy to hear them laugh.

A Better Day

I am starting to wonder if life ever calms down.  If we ever find routine.  How those working moms really do it?!!  Today was a quieter day thank God .  Still trying to figure out how to have enough energy when I get home to dinner and such.  lol.  Luckily I have an amazing husband who kicks ass.  Not all the time but most of the time.  He truly is a big help. 

We started out a chore chart for the kiddos and so far so good.  It is such a habit for me to just do the dishes or do the vacuuming but I really need to let them do it so they can get in the habit and enjoy it somewhat. 

I took my sleeping pill last night, you know the one that makes me gain weight, because I cant really go without sleeping.  I have tried it these past weeks and it hasnt been working out so well.  I have tried the melatonin and it doesnt help.  Luckily I have a doctors visit in a couple weeks.  Yay!!

Happy Thought #19

This fun little poster made me smile and made me think of a friend who said she had balls of steel. lol  Women are truly amazing as are men.  But women always seem to amaze me at what they can and can not handle.

This is my happy thought for yesterday.  It is my awesome sleep number bed!!  It is so comfortable and it is huge so I can lay on it and have friends lay on it with me while we veg out.  It is is super awesome and relaxes the body every time!

Rough Day

It was a bit of a rough day and it is hard to find something to be happy about.  Right now I am just hoping and wishing for a good nights sleep.  I guess that is what I can be happy about.  A bed to sleep in and forget about it all.

Dentist, Sickness and Life

I had to wake up extra early to get the kids to the dentist today.  The drive is an hour and a half and I wanted to make sure we got there in time.  Thank goodness it is only very 6 months except for when they get cavities which a couple of mine did.  So in a month I will be making the trek again.

It probably wouldnt be as bad, but I took Nyquil last night because I am sick and waking up early didnt agree with my body.  I am hoping to get over this sickness somewhat so I can go back to work tomorrow. 

My job is amazing and I enjoy the opportunity to keep learning and being actively engaged.  So amazing!!

Happy Thought #17

(source) 
I am blessed to have an amazing family.  My mom and sister came up the other day to help me unpack all of my boxes, hang my pictures and even tell me what I can keep and throw away.  Rightfully so,  I had had some of this stuff since I got married which was over ten years ago.  My home now looks like a home and I am grateful for the love and help that went into it.

When you possess light within, you see it externally.  ~Anaïs Nin

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.  ~Aaron Rose

Joy requires one to be awake,
Adjusting the heart's ambience to bright.
Some prefer the dark, as is their right,
On grounds of agony, and to forsake
Not only bliss, but all that's blessed by light.
~Nicholas Gordon, poemsforfree.com

Lighthouse's have great symbolism for me and I love the beauty and that they get to be near the water.   Water is so fun!!

I simply adore trees.  All of them!!  I find peace when I can stare at a tree and see the changes in them  It is almost like the Phenomenon movie when John Travolta was looking out the window staring at the trees and swaying.  I feel myself sway.  Anywho just a little about me.  I love trees.

Lookin Up

Well I applied for a job with this new move and am happy to say that I got it.  Woo-hoo!  I really had no doubts but when they said 15 applied I was a little worried.  today being my first day at worked it was a bit overwhelming on the brain but I am sure with time it will all come together.  I am so excited to have his opportunity and have this chance to have purpose again.  besides what I am supposed to have purpose about of course.  Being a mother a wife blah blah blah. 

I have made some more recipes from pinterest and they were oh so heavenly!!  I really loved them and so did the family.  It was the Sugar Cookie Bars and the French Dip Crescent Rolls.  Pinterest might just be the best invention.  I am such a visual girl and seeing the pictures makes recipes, blogs, crafts so much more wantable and doable.

I met my new therapist today and it was a little awkward, not gonna lie.  I pretty much told him my history and what got me to this point.  I didnt really have much to say after this.  He kind of just looked at me probably assessing what I just said.  I was sure to tell him if he didnt take the lead I would not have much to say.  So we discussed structure and what we wanted to accomplish.  Definitely made me feel better when he spoke and talked of having a plan.  This could be a positive experience. 

Well I am tired and tomorrow calls for an all day work experience so sweet dreams to all you peeps.  Peace out!

When I first saw this picture I was like WOW.  Now when I see it I am like WOW.  Ok I really dont talk like that but seriously how many of us have stretch marks?!!  I know I do and I am very proud of what they accomplished.  This picture just brought whole new meaning to them and now when anyone asks I am going to say I am a freakin' tiger.  Boo-yah!!

Happy Thought #10


This has kind of been my motto for the last couple months as I try find out where I am supposed to be in life. Whether it be a job, helping out more, going to a church, and anything else on my path. It has taken a few hard knocks and I still don't have this patience and ease mastered but in any given situation I repeat these words and know I will be taken care of.

A Deeper Look

I have been thinking about how I wanted to talk about my troubles without sounding crazy.  The whole experience still shocks me and I am complete silence about it all.  Until Now.  . . . .

Last year was kind of a trying time for my family and I.  I have suffered from post partum depression ever since my oldest was born.  With each additional kid it kind of got worse.  I decided it was time to seek help and get this problem taken care of.  I deserved it and my family deserved it.  I saw a doctor so they could help me with medication and I saw a counselor so I could talk about whatever is eating me internally.  I was not going to give up on the process, this time. 

I am very sensitive to medication so during this time my depression and symptoms tended to get worse.  The medication was not helping.  By my third visit with the counselor she decided to hospitalize me.  I guess thought of harm weren't the  normal thing to have even though I never acted on it.  Overall it was for the safety of the kids and me to get a quicker solution.

I was in denial and trying to reason with the counselor, I promised to be better.  I didnt know how this was going to work out.  Who was going to take care of my kids, my family, my life?  It was all out of my hands and to tell you the truth it kind of had to be.  I would never make these choices on my own in fear of being a burden to others. 

I stayed in the hospital for a week and a half and was monitored on different medications trying to find the best one for me.  I wasn't sleeping well and like I said before I have depression.  The sleeping pills worked wonders except for they made me eat everything in sight.  (Some of the change I need. I gained over 20lbs being on those.)  I left the hospital feeling scared and weary of what was to come.  I was scared to come back home, scared to see my family, just plain scared. 

While in the hospital my husband made the choice to move closer to work and provide a better atmosphere.  It was overall a very good choice for our family.  So we had that going on to where we were moving Christmas Eve and changing our whole future. 

Change is good and I am grateful for this change.  I just need to adjust myself and my life to make depression better and our family life better which is always a work in progress.

So that is a little about me.

Pinterest Dinner: Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese

(source)                                                                                                            
 Ok, so my sandwich doesn't look as pretty as the Closet Cookers but I would like to think they still taste the same.  I put the blue cheese on the husbands sandwich and he informed me that it was a little much.  Note to self: use blue cheese sparingly.  I put ranch on mine because I am not a blue cheese fan and I loved it.  I could have probably put a little more hot sauce so that it could have been juicer but overall I would say that this experience was a success.  
Thank you Pinterest and thank you bloggers for creating yummy treats!!
