The doings

This month has hit us hard with all kinds of sickness first up was my poor baby who was super sickly for a couple of days, I was second in line and now T sounds like a dying dog every time he coughs. But we powered through and we are almost out of the funk.

We have also been doing the regular working/school even though I only worked like 3 days this week (so glad i got to do this) we been trying to go to the gym on a regular I go mostly to watch trashy reality TV and T does it to spend time with me/TV also haha. My eating habits are getting a little better but not much has change in my weight, I'm hoping that will change in the next couple of weeks so I don't get discourage and eat all things. Celeste keeps being her sweet self and it leads to us as first time parents drooling over everything she does we say to each other "Isnt she awesome" "isnt she the best baby?" at least 10 times a day is a bit ridiculous.

This is her "how come Dixie gets to swim and I don't" look

14 Minutes

Last night as T was cleaning his gun ( or something) and I was playing with our old computer the one that has no screen and we can only see if we hook it up to the TV anyways I was looking at old pictures of Dixie as a baby SO CUTE got some puppy-fever and then I remember she ate all my shoes and peed on our bed and it quickly went away. I kept clicking on random folders and somehow ended up in the unnamed folder that had two videos I clicked on the first one and it was me recording baby Dixie jumping in water for the first time, then I clicked on the second one and guess who it was? Celeste not only Celeste but Celeste-who-literally-just-came-out-of-me newborn crying, whimpering and T comforting her YOU GUYS! I have on video the first 14 minutes of Celeste being a brand new baby! You can hear my Mom crying randomly and trying to comfort her (she was the one recording), you can hear T say random things because he was so nervous and scare he says and I have on video the first time he "swaddle" her and the nurse cheering him on, you can hear me in the background oddly calm probably because I was so dang tired which was actually my answer when my mom asked me "Are you happy?" and all I could say was "I'm just so tired Ma" :) 
All three of us sat there and watched the video intently, me and T would smiled at each other as in how in the heck did we do that smile? and Celeste would cry when her baby self would cry, definitely one of my favorite moments of 2014 thus far.

And now shes a big girl who wears ponytails and rocks Elmo to sleep.

Celeste and her doings

Ain't that the truth?!

Now I know is not like I'm a mom of 3 (oh geez just saying that scares me) but one for me is plenty busy right now and for a long while. Seriously though after spending a 3 day weekend with her I'm exhausted that might have to do with my binge watching Scandal and doing a stupid amount of lounges (and then eating chips and soda) but nonetheless having a toddler is some serious literally dirty work.

Example #1-
Sunday we only went to Sacrament since my throat was hurting, we got home ate and my sweet child cuddle up to me and we all fell asleep, sounds pretty sweet huh? I thought it was too until I was woken up by a wet diaper slapping me in the face. THATS RIGHT, this child took her diaper off and thought it would be hilarious to do slap me with it in my peaceful sleep.

Example #2-
She was Ms. Snotty nose for a couple days last week and I would constantly have to wipe her nose which is fine until after spending my day in the Senate I realized there was some snot on my purse...HOW DID IT GET THERE?!

Example #3-
Laundry is a never ending cycle and not because she gets dirty (bc she does) but also because she thinks is hilarious to dump drinks, food or anything else on my my bed. If she could talk she would say something like this "Hey mom let me have some Oreos so I can eat the cream and smear the actual cookie all over the blankets, k thanks"

Example #4-
She loves to eat popcorn almost every time we go to Target we end up getting some well she also hates her car seat, so when I offered her some popcorn while she was screaming at me for putting her in her car seat she got quiet grabbed the popcorn bag -at this point I was smiling turning around thinking Mom for the win- but that thought was interrupted by the bag of popcorn hitting me in the back of the head and popcorn going in every which way. Baby 432 Mom 0

And the list could go on.

I can already see that the "terrible two's" are going to kick my butt, thankfully I have T who is an awesome Dad to help me out and not go insane.

So true!

We actually turned her crib into a bed this weekend and its been more successful than I expected, she likes playing in it and feels comfortable getting in and out of it.

aaaw she so cute

She is SO MUCH fun, her personality is getting bigger by the second and I'm grateful I get to see her grow into an awesome little girl.

I'm so grateful to be her Mom and having the opportunity to see T grow into this amazing Dad, that guy even though he can drive me crazy with his hunting and his never ending school deal I'm so glad he's patient and loving and so helpful, he has the "Honey to-do list" down to a science (thanks babe).

Here's hoping I'll make it to the gym tonight :)

On my eating and my "wants"

As much as I been trying to ignore it eating is such a huge part of getting fit, I could work out everyday but if I go home and eat half pizza I'm only hurting myself and wasting my time which to me is precious so even though is a constant battle I decided to record my eating not only here but on Instagram made its own account and everything so people on my regular Instagram wouldn't hate me :) I also Snapchat my baby sister and my friend Jessica to annoy keep track.

Last week

I won't go into detail because let's face it that's boring but I will say that keep accountable is the only thing that stops me from stuffing my face with sourpatch candy.

Anyways on other news I cleaned out and re organize my closet this weekend not only that but I have no laundry to do as of right now ooooh aahhh I know right?! awesome! how did I do that well after looking at piles of laundry to the point it was ridiculous I decided it was time to get it over with and got myself a little happy helper known as T.

As I was folding clothes I told T I want to "reward" myself if I keep going to the gym and here are some of my wants a perfect white Tee, this classic black swimsuit or this one ooor maybe this one?

Well here's to not eating my way through the week :)

Why is it dark and cold in the mornings?

Guess who got up this morning?!
That's who!
yep yep yep I'm extra proud because it was stinking cold and dark this morning and it didn't take that much to get out of bed only like 2 snoozes :)
Regardless today is the first Monday of the year and since one of my new year resolutions was to get fit (cliche but hey you do what you gotta do) and by fit I don't mean skinny I mean toned, agile and more energized. I decided to do the same thing I did after I had Celeste to wake up stupid early and work out why? Because I saw results, I went from being in the 200s back to my regular weight in 3ish months. Sorry about the after picture is the only one I could find :/ I gots a big butt

Look at that belly! 
Sadly my biggest problem like every human is my love for food, and not comfort food like homemade but sweet processed fattening food so another goal is to not eat processed food. Hopefully as I get better at not eating drive-thru I will start eating cleaner too. But lets not get steps :)

Honestly if I could stop drinking coke for more than four days I say thats a win haha.

Now I been a gym member for about 3-4 months and I went regularly for two months but the holidays came around and out the window it went :) 

And to show you guys I mean business I taken a before picture of myself and in exactly 90 days I will post the before and after.

Wish me luck!
