Good golly these Fridays keep coming faster and faster…I feel like I just wrote this post for last week! Anyways…two orders of business as usual – accountability and making new friends.

I like to be accountable first so here goes:

This week I tried a bunch of new things and they seem to be working! I did a mid week weigh in and couldn’t believe my scale so I waited until boxing to use theirs (it has to be spot on right? they’re weighing these guys to match them up with other fighters…it’s all official and stuff..) and if my shoes do indeed weigh 3 lbs then my scale at home was right!

This week I added Yoga Burn on my off days plus I installed a calorie counting app on my iPod.  Between the boxing, the yoga burn, and the counting calories I’m making progress! I was actually able to get my wedding rings on!  I didn’t leave them on because they were still uber tight but we’re making progress!

This week I’m switching to Pilates instead of yoga burn – gotta keep things changing so the body doesn’t adapt!

Stats for this week:
Week 1 – 142lbs
Week 2 – 138lbs – woohoo!
Week 4 – 140lbs – ouch…no excuses, I have a new workout regime and a new resolve for eating healthy…we should start seeing that number drop.
Week 6 – 139.5 – okay, .5 lbs!  I attribute that to the fact that i’m putting on muscle and muscle weighs more than fat right??:)
Week 7 – 137.5 – woohooo!  Now, we fluctuated a bit this week but as of this AM this is where I’m at!!
Week 8 – 135 – Hallelujah!  Real progress now! I don’t expect it will continue at this rate but we’ll see. 

Okay, on to making new friends!!!

There’s a new Friday Follow on the block! Thanks to Ian, Harriet, and Tami we have an all new and improved Friday Follow! I’m excited to try it out! Maybe one day I’ll even try for a host spot. For now I’m just a spectator!


I’m also participating in the same Follow Me Friday I did last week from from Trendy Tree House.


Hello to all you new folks! I hope you find something here that you’ll want to come back over and over again for! This blog was started to keep the fam up to date on my first pregnancy and has continued after my little Noah was born. Topics range from smitten momma ramblings to hard hitting pieces about 529 plans and the like (haha…hard hitting..maybe not but it’s fun to dream that I could actually write something that could be considered hard hitting) and has a smattering of photography (of my little man of course) thrown in for fun.

Me? I’m an almost a 30 something (gah!) working mamma who would love to ditch her mortgage in order to stay home with little man but sadly bought when the housing market was at its peak and probably couldn’t even break even in the sale. Some day I dream of leaving the corporate world to do something more creative – like photography or crocheting!:) But for now amuse myself with hobby photography and blogging.

Anywho…glad to e-meet you and I hope you leave a comment to let me know you stopped by!
