{weight loss}

Yesterday was our first weigh in. I was really good about not getting on the scale during the week.  I got on once in a forgetful-out-of-habit moment.  

I'm down 1.7 pounds.  And super happy about it.  On top of completing the first week of Bikini Body Mommy I've also started tracking my calories everyday and  wearing my fit bit.  Yesterday I also started my Pact app up again in order to hold myself more accountable. 

Isn't that hilarious????  Lisa sent that to me a couple of days ago. Love it. 


{Life Lately - 5/17/15}

In the fall all three little kids played soccer.  This time only Chloe wanted to play. We have two practices a week plus her game. 

We have soooooo many gorgeous flowers at our house.  The previous owner did such a wonderful job.  It's so exciting to see the new things that bloom each day. 

Mommy, take my picture over here!

We also have this to die for rock wall lining our driveway. 

I love that she loves to read so much. 

The kids have been playing outside non-stop since the weather has been nice!

Leave it to these tow to find an electronic device to play with in a book store.  Geeesh. 

This one loved all the actual books.  

This kid. Slays me. He's the best at honoring me and my selfies. 

My dad came down last weekend andBailey  went fishing.  We needed to all go check out the dock. 

When we bought the house we weren't planning on keeping the hot tub.  Everyone said "just wait, as soon as you get in it you'll keep it". They were right!  This was the littles first time in. They loved it. 

{here we go again}

I think many of us start and stop this journey over and over again throughout our lives. It's not something to be ashamed of. You just need to be willing to start again. I'm not embarrassed that I have tried and failed many times before. It's all about moving on. So, here we go again.

I have signed up for the Bikini Body Mommy 90 challenge.  Do I expect to have a "bikini body" at the end of all this?  NO. lol. But I do expect to be stronger.  Hopefully a little smaller, but stronger is my top goal. 

I have finished week 1 and I already feel better and stronger than I did on day 1.  This is a free program open to everyone. You don't need to want an actual bikini body or even be a mommy to join.  It's hard.  Really hard. Join in with me?!

Btw here is my "before" pic. They make you take a before pic as well as measurements every week.  I'm down almost two pounds week 1 and I am super excited to see what week 2 has to offer.  

Sure I'm cute, but I've got some ways to go in the strength department.  :)
