Okay, now that did come faster than the others – 4 day work weeks (turned 3 due to a nasty sinus infection) really skew your perception on the week!  Anyways…two orders of business as usual – accountability and making new friends.

I like to be accountable first so here goes:

This week was a total loss.  Noah’s been fighting somethign which finally turned into a sinus infection and lucky me caught it so on Saturday evening a little tickle in my throat turned into a full blown upper respiratory infection.  Knocked me on my can (and I’m still recovering).  So, needless to say I didn’t work out at all…heck, I barely made it off the couch for the first few days of this thing.  The only bounus is that I wasn’t really all that hungry so I was able to control my eating and account for the lack of activity in my caloric intake so all was not lost.

This was a hold steady week – no wins, no losses…

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.
Week 9 – 135 – With no exercise all week I’ll take a steady number over what it could have been

Okay, on to making new friends!!!

Two Friday Follows….


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!
