Gonna get Crazy Fast! Thursday, Mar 15 2012 

Yes, I mean that.  Life is about to get a little crazy.  We will be house hunting in Tampa next week!  I would like to think I am ready, but who is ever ready to house hunt?  In and out houses.  Some empty and some not.  It will be exciting because these houses are beautiful.  It will be mind racking because these houses are beautiful.  How am I supposed to choose only one?  That is the hard part.  Not only that, but we only have ONE week to find somewhere to live.  We will be moving to Tampa in July.  Too bad I don’t have that long to hunt 🙂  Of course, that is probably a good thing.  I am not good at making choices like this.  Oh well, I feel confident that we will find the right house for our family!

With all of that said, I will more than likely be absent from the blog world until after the house hunting.  I will try to post anything exciting though.

As for the clean eating, well let’s just say it has been a little diverted.  The good news, I have not gained any weight.  I have acutally lost 23 pounds since I started my diet and exercise routines.  Yay!  Also, one of my fellow bloggers is doing an excellent job on the C25K program.  He has given me the motivation to start it back up.  I will be adding the program to the current exercise I do.  I still love my step and pump classes, I will not be giving those up. 🙂

Well have a great couple of weeks everyone.  I will be back shortly and hopefully with good news and pics on a house!  Wish me luck 🙂

Pinterest?! Wednesday, Mar 7 2012 

To all of my friends and followers that are making progress….Way to go!

It is starting to look like I may be able to squeeze in one post a week for a little while.  I am trying to figure out which direction I want to take my blog.  Life is pretty hectic right now and I do not have a lot of time to sit down and put thoughts together.  Well, not thoughts that make sense to anyone but me…lol

We will be going to Tampa to house hunt in a couple of weeks.  If I do not take my computer, I will make sure to come back with pictures.

Yesterday, I made my monthly trip to whole foods.  A trip that normally takes me a couple of hours, only took about 45 minutes.  I left there feeling like a Whole Foods Shopping expert. 🙂  Those are the kinds of trips to the grocery store that I like.

Now to address my blog title.  Tonight, I have been on Pinterest trying to see what all the fuss is about.  Maybe it’s just me but I just cannot become as addicted as some of my friends.  Maybe I am doing it wrong…lol.  Don’t get me wrong, there are some great ideas and I have found some awesome recipes that I want to try, but I just don’t see what all the hype is about.  I am going to try it out over the next few days and I will let you know what I find…….

Until then, Have a great week and happy blogging!

 

Please forgive me! Friday, Mar 2 2012 

Please forgive me for not entering the blog world lately.  It has been a crazy couple of weeks.  We found out that we are going to Tampa this summer.  But first, we have to go house hunting which means we will be doing that week after next.  Yep, a lot of miles from here to there.  I am excited and stressed all at the same time.  I know it will be worth it once we get there.  The kids are very excited about it too.  I hope to have pictures and plenty to tell once we get there.

Not much has changed for me.  I am still exercising.  Not eating as clean as I should but I haven’t given up.   I definitely need to get back into the groove as summer is approaching us.  I have yet to make it all 5 days in the gym but that goal is still there and totally reachable.  I haven’t seen any info on the spring 5k run.  That would be extremely motivating and I need all the motivation I can get….lol

I hope all is well for the rest of you.  I now have to get my gym stuff ready for tomorrow.

Have a great night everyone!

 

Mardi Gras and some! Wednesday, Feb 22 2012 

As I sit here enjoying my popcorn, because I have already had my King Cake and about a months worth of sweets today, I realized that I have not blogged in a few days.  That’s just not nice of me.  So many things going on.

MY WEEKEND

The weekend was filled with fun, food, and friends.

Friday night we hung out with some friends and enjoyed beer and champagne.

Satruday night we attended a Mardi Gras party.  Not quite Louisiana style but definitely reminded us of  home.

Sunday night the hubby and I finally went out to celebrate our anniversary.  We went to The Melting Pot.  It was so yummy.

MARDI GRAS

Monday the kids were out of school.  We had company over for some Gumbo, Potato salad, deviled eggs, sweet tea and King Cake.  Yes, I ordered my King Cake.  We also found out that we will be moving to Tampa, Florida this summer.  I am so excited.  I have wanted to go there forever.

LENT

Tonight my blog is also about Lent.  I am not part of a Religion that gives up things for Lent.  However, I have decided to try it out this year.  What better way to give up something?  Therefore, with the support of friends and family, I have decided to give up smoking!  There I said it.  The way I look at it, I am not getting the full benefits of clean living if I am still smoking these nasty cigarettes.  I guess my biggest fear is weight gain.  OF course, I am in the gym a lot so I am hoping that will be enough.  Wish me luck! Please

EMEALS

Also, I have been trying to figure out why I hit a Plateau so fast.  I figured it out this weekend.  It is my emeals that I love so much.  Thing is, I haven’t reached my goal weight.  Therefore, I am at a stand still and just maintaining.  Good thing is, I haven’t gained any.  I will resume my emeals once I have reached my weight loss goal.

I hope you enjoy this post and I hope you all have a great evening.
