3 pounds lighter

So as of last week I decided to join a program that our local gym offers called the Biggest Loser. I NEED to loose my baby weight and then some for all the upcoming weddings for the summer. I started Monday when I met with my team for the first time and our first weigh in was Thursday, so in 3 days we were expected to loose some weight. I was really nervous when I went to step on the scale after most of my team mates had lost anywhere from 5-10 pounds. To my surprise I did loose 3 pounds in 3 days! I have another weigh in this coming up Thursday and I am again a little nervous. I am a little sore today after strength training with my team yesterday and then doing a class called body flex. Which is also weight lifting and a team mate invited me to come along this morning. Well let me tell you, I am sure by the end of today I won't be able to walk up my steps.
My goal my May 30th is to have loss at least 15 pounds. It really has been a lifestyle change for me. Last week when I started the program I also went back to work full time and coming off a pregnancy that I pretty much ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. And now I am fitting time into each and every day to work out some how and counting my calories and writing down every thing that goes into my mouth.
I am hoping by June 20th I will look and feel like myself again, and by that I mean 20 pounds lighter and a lot healthier!

Wacky Wednesdays

I know I am a little behind on the blogging. But Wednesdays each weeks have seem to be getting quite interesting. Ashley has both her girls plus Cody all day Wednesdays until 2:00, Then I go to her house she leaves for soccer and I have all the kids until 4. Then I pack all 3 kids up in the mini van and take both girls to Grand Dees and Grand Jans. But during the time I have them for two hours is great. I love getting Addison up from her nap so she can tell me all the funny things she is learning. Including telling me she "Pooped" when really she didnt. Or "Can Cody play?" This past Wednesday was the first time I saw Hailey cracking up the whole time at herself and making all sorts of noises having herself a great time. Cody finally started smiling this week at actual things and people. Justin is loving this because he says Cody loves him now! (which clearly he always has) Well thats about all I got, this was my first week back to work and it went pretty well and I am happy for the time I get to work and then come home and spend with the little Codman because i missed him all day long!

Summer So Soon?

I just wanted to take time and post a picture of what the weather was like just two short months ago and now today we are at a high of 89degrees! I would like to say I do not miss the snow but now that I am not pregnant I really am sad I missed all the snow when I could have been snowboarding. I just hope for a great winter next year! And as far as this summer weather...well its great but I am not ready to turn on my AC and all I know is that is very warm in our house!
Cody is growing so big every day even though he only grew 1/2 an inch since February 24th! But I guess since he came out 6ft something (or 22inches ha) He is in the 90th percentile for his height but everything else is average. He had to get his second Hep B shot yesterday which was not fun! Cody has been fighting a cold along with a really bad butt rash! So we havent been sleeping much and our eating schedule seems to be all out of sorts too.
Justin just finished up teaching his last week of his Combat Medic class which was a bit rough on everyone considering he has to spend the night up at work a few nights, normally this would be fine but with a very sick crabby baby it was a bit of a challenge. As for me it is back to work next week! I am really excited to go back to work then I will actually feel like I am doing something during the day other then waiting around for Cody to eat or cry. It will be great because Cody will now get regular Nana time during the week which he will very much love!
Hopefully the weather doesn't get too cold again but more normal spring time temps would be nice!
