Two posts in one day…luck you!

When I saw the “sports” theme I thought I had just the picture but as I looked thru to find it, I found like 10 others that would have worked well too….such decisions. I decided on this one because it’s summer and I’m missing the beach.

This is hubsy getting ready to crush the ball…

Head on over to Trendy Treehouse to see more “sports” related photos:

Well…it was bound to happen…I gained:( I could list every excuse in the book but bottom line, I didn’t achieve my goal this week. I only made two workouts and was pretty lazy with the calorie counting. I did drink more water but not as much as I wanted.

Sad part is, I knew all week that a gain was coming – i just wasn’t as motivated or diligent as I’ve been in the past. Chalk it up to being sick, having a sick dog, and a baby who didn’t want to sleep. Even my favorite boxing instructor asked where I’d been…

The goal this coming week is to get back track…the holiday is going to make this challenging. I must control myself at those BBQ’s where soda and chips abound! I need to find ways to work out even when I can’t make the gym…time to break out the Yoga and Pilates DVD’s again.

Stats by the week:
Week 1 – 142lbs (7 weeks postpartum)
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
Week 10 – 134 – 1 lb…i’ll take it!
Week 11 – 133.5 which is pretty good since I only made it to the gym once this week
Week 12 – 133 – time to get back to counting calories:)
Week 13 – 134.5 – Yikes…but it’s bound to happen!

Okay, now to making new friends!!

New Friend Fridays

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!

Today over at Trendy Treehouse the shutter love tuesday topic is “Summer Fun”. I have a ton of pics and it was so hard to choose just one. So, in honor of the horribly hot and muggy weather we’ve been having here I thought I’d go with something refreshing…

Cool my bellah...

Little K was having a blast in the sprinklers one hot summer day last year. He stood there as the sprinkler did its cycle and would giggle hysterically as the jet of water would come close and then hit his belly…

Head on over to TrendyTreehouse for more summer fun!

I know I say this every week but holy cow…I’ll continue to say it. Life with an infant really makes your weeks fly by…

As always, two things on the agenda today! Checking in and making friends!

This week was better workout wise – I managed Monday, Wed, and will go today. Next week I’ll start to put yoga/pilates back in. I’m still a bit sore from overdoing it on MONDAY! My hamstrings just aren’t the same..haha. Eating wise i didn’t do as well. I’ve stopped counting calories figuring I have a decent handle on what is what but I think I need to go back to watching more carefully…weight loss has slowed.

The goal this coming week is to get back on the calorie counting wagon and drink more water – I realized I’m not really drinking a whole lot (although, I’m not drinking much of anything – no soda or anything…odd..).

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 10 – 134 – 1 lb…i’ll take it!
Week 11 – 133.5 which is pretty good since I only made it to the gym once this week
Week 12 – 133 – time to get back to counting calories:)

Back in business this Friday with both a summer shape up check-in and a bloggy hop or two in hopes of making new friends!

This week back working out consistently was rough. Between over doing it early in the week and meetings later in the week that overran my work out time it was tough to get it all in! I kinds slacked on the calorie counting too although I didn’t go overboard so I still managed to loose .5lbs…definitely need to step it up next week! Plus I need to get a new scale…when I first stepped on I was 137 and I just couldn’t believe that so I tried again and I was 133.5….i’m not super confident in its abilities any longer so it’s time to find a new one – off to Target I go (oh darn…such torture!)

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 11 – 133.5 which is pretty good since I only made it to the gym once this week

Okay, on to making new friends!!!

I saw this weekly photo challenge while participating in the Trendy Treehouse Friday Follow and just knew I wanted to enter.

This week’s theme is “Stuffed Animals”.   Growing up I had tons (tons and tons) of stuffed animals. So many that we put up shelving around the perimeter of my room near the ceiling and even that wasn’t enough to contain the tide that was my stuffie collection.   I’d take them all down weekly and rearrange so that no one would feel left out and so the other stuffies could meet each other (I had a vivid imagination??:) ) 

Even before Noah was born we started accumulating a collection of stuffies for him and the little hedgie above is one of his first.  The little guy is about the size of a softball and worked perfectly in his “woodland creatures” nursery.  Here he’s using the plastic grass to hide from the stuffed fox!

Head on over to Trendy Treehouse to see other stuffed animals and hear their stories!!
