So appropriate

So yesterday I posted about wanting to lose weight and get fit and healthy. Which, I did not get out of bed to shred this morning. Ok, well, I attempted to but once my feet hit the floor, EVERYTHING started to hurt!

This morning while commenting on all of your blogs, I decided to search for some fitness blogs and I found a wonderful blog that I think will be useful and fun to read. So head on over and check out Gina's blog...She's a new military wife and is having a fabulously fit giveaway!



Finishing work then heading the gym and tanning bed! Oh, and guess what I had with my lunch -- a cucumber! YUM & GREEN!

Hey Fat Girl!

That would be me! I'm so out of shape it's not even a little bit ok. I decided that I'm completely over the whole kidney stone/infection debacle and I'm ready to get my jiggly behind back to working out...and holy crap! I'm so out of shape I couldn't even keep up with Jillian for Level 1! I feel like such a wimp! I think I pushed myself a tad too hard because I'm pretty much feeling like I'm gonna die...any second now. I need work my way back into it and back into eating well. Now that I'm not on the road 18 hours a week, I have no excuse for eating badly. So...I want to put this out there for all of you to hold me accountable. Please don't snicker behind by back...

Current Weight: Too Much
Goal Weight: 12 pounds less
Workout Goal: Shred everday for 30 days and include at least 4 days in the gym doing any kind of cardio/weight/class for at least an hour.
Diet Goal: No Coke, No Tea, No fancy coffee (just plain), add more green stuff, NO fast food (at all!), nothing fried.
Extras: Tan more often, get back to my clothes because I refuse to buy a bigger size!

Ladies...Keep me in check. I decided if I put it out there, I'll be more inclined to do it. I've got to get back into my clothes! Today marks day 1 and I did the Shred. I'm going to try to drag my butt out of bed at 5:30 to Shred before work and gym after....we'll see how it goes! Wish me luck...Tips are always welcome! I'll take any help I can get!

Husbands, Nephews & Babies

I'm beyond excited that Bobby will be home in just a few days. It's been kind of a rough night/morning because I've been missing him. I did just leave Mississippi but I know I won't see him again until we move into our house on the 31st. My sister has been really great and always has be over to visit. Last night she brought my nephew over to play which is always a good time.  These are a few pictures that I took last night. 


Isn't his outfit precious! Uncle Bobby and I bought him that on our anniversary trip to Hawaii in March and it fits him perfectly and just in time for his 1st birthday. I'm going to use a picture I took last night to make his birthday invitations. Hopefully I can post them for you guys to see once I finally get them made!

Also just wanted to welcome my new followers! I've 3 in the last 2 days join! Thanks for tagging along guys! I love the company. Be sure to leave me a comment so I can check out your blog.

Ok. Not to extend this into a long sappy post but I'm having mama drama fears. I mentioned yesterday that a few of my friends are getting ready to start having babies and I'm sure my sister will be trying again for her second soon. I know that I'm still not ready and I've always wanted to wait until I was closer to 30 before having kids -- which is what my aunt and stepmom did and I think it worked perfectly. But, here's the thing...I've had so many people telling me lately that they can't imagine me not living in the city and  having a baby on  my  hip. I've always had this fear to have kids simply because I'm afraid I won't be a good mom. It has nothing to do with kids -- I love kids -- it only has to do with the fact that I'm terrified to raise screwed up kids and release them into society. What I'm hearing only scares me more. Yeah, I absolutely love living in the city and, in my opinion, there are several places in Houston that are perfectly acceptable to raise kids -- granted, I'll have to win the lottery to be able to afford those areas. I don't feel like there is anything wrong with me taking my time, enjoying my husband and being completely selfish right now because once kids come that's all over. I guess I had a friend say something the other night and I can't stop thinking about it. I'm not a super sensitive person and I rarely get my feelings hurt but that stung a little. I guess it's because I've always had this fear and then it's almost like it was just confirmed. 

Luckily, my family is pretty understanding and they don't press us too hard to have babies. I have a wonderful family and while I know they are all ready, they know I'm not. So, here's to hoping I grow into being mommy-material at some point...

$2 Margarits = Lots of Fun!

Last night was a blast! I met up with some of my best friends for dinner and drinks, stayed out 2 hours later than I wanted to and had 1 too many drinks...and I loved every second of it! 
This is Kati and Eddie, they are getting married in December. I'm in her house party and even though I have NO idea what that entails, I'm super excited. And she thinks its funny that I don't know what a house party is...and that scares me.

This is Kati, Audrey and Amanda.
Me and Megs. She's always making silly faces. I want me, her and Kati to all get have babies at the same time. Problems is, I think they'll be ready before me...sad.
Meg and her huband
 Me and Meg again. Ooops. I was supposed to crop Daniel out.

We had such a great time. Makes me so thankful to be back in Texas...Now if only Bobby would  hurry up and get back! 

(By they way, just as a side note: all of my friends are teachers and I am not. That is why they all look so rested and cute and why I look like I just worked a 10 hour day.)

Full day at work today and I'll be busy busy...trying to decide if I'm going to go out again tonight. I want to go but I need to tighten up the purse strings a bit, get my behind in the gym and spend time with my puppy. Yes, my dog gets that much attention.

Happy Wednesday!

I heart this

I was so busy today at work that I didn't take lunch so I decided to reward myself with a few minutes and have an online date with Club Monaco. And I want everything. Here are a few of my favorites...





Dinner with my lovely friends tonight! Pictures tomorrow, I promise! 

Woops...

I had a little mishap yesterday. On my LONG drive back from Florida Sunday I bought a huge bottle of water. Well, when I went to twist the cap back on I didn't catch the tracks correctly. Being that I was extremely exhausted and already had a cup of coffee in one cup holder and a Sprite in the other, I just tossed the water bottle in my passenger seat. yesterday morning when I got in my car to go to work I noticed that the entire bottle (seriously, like 1/2 liter bottle) had leaked into my seat. My seat was soaked! So wet that when I set my purse in it my purse was wet! So I had to take my car to get detailed yesterday so that the 104 degree weather didn't cause the water to mildew. And $70 and 2 1/2 hours later, my car looks brand new! Then it stormed this morning...Haha! My car is getting an extra bath now.

Work has been great! I feel like I'm really getting the hang of things...if only my clients would call me back! I'm still at my parents house counting down the days until my honey comes home and we move into the house. I really need to get back into working out. I'm steady putting on the pounds and really would like them to start falling off...steadily.

What do you ladies do for workouts? Typically I just run and lift weights. Any eating tips? I'm generally a pretty average eater. I don't really eat much fast food unless I'm on the road. I love to hear what you do to keep yourself in shape because I need to get myself back there!

Thank God for Marriage...

This past weekend Bobby and I had a great little weekend getaway to Panama City Beach, Fl. We left Friday and spent the weekend lounging on the beach and eating way too much delicious food. However, I think we both spent the entire weekend wishing we could be home with our family. The last few months have been really hard on us. Not so much relationship wise, just hard being away from family and not really having a "normal" life. We are finally in the home stretch though. Bobby will be home not later than August 8 but hopefully before then. It was a strange reality that hit when we were having dinner and watching fireworks and some drunk girl shouted, "Would you rather be anywhere else in the world right now!?" My first thought was, "Well, this is Panama City Beach, so yeah, there a few places I'd rather be." My second thought was one we discussed later and that I shared with my husband, "Well, I'd really like to be in Houston with my family and friends right now."

The last few weeks a very good friend of mine has been going through a really hard time. She called off her wedding that was supposed to happen last month -- a decision that is definitely for the better but that has still been hard. It's really had me thinking how grateful I am to be married to such an amazing guy and to have a relationship where I can be completely be myself all the time. It doesn't matter how dramatic I am or how nosey I can be, he loves me regardless. I am so glad that this friend of mine realized what she was getting into before she actually went through with the wedding, but I would not wish what she's going through on my greatest enemy. OK, well I don't exactly have enemies, but I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I only hope that she one day finds a man who treats her the way she deserves to be treated and that she can realize what a truly amazing and beautiful woman she is. Any guy would be lucky to have her -- and the next one better realize it!

What are you most grateful for when it comes to your relationship? I know many of you have amazing husbands and I love to hear all of your stories. I know for one, I am SO grateful that I never have to date again! Dating is hellish torture! I never understand why people say marriage is so hard. I thought dating was harder...and it seriously upsets me when people tell brides-to-be how hard married life is. It makes me think they picked the wrong person. Don't get me wrong, it's not a ray of sunshine every second of every day but I totally agree with Charlotte from SATC movie when she says, "I'm not happy every second of every day, but I'm happy every day."
