It's Been A LONG While

Hey guys!  Seriously, it has been a LONG time.  I would love to get back into blogging regularly, but I really don't want to make any goals that I am not sure I can keep right now.  Life is CRAZY, but so wonderful.  Here are a few things going on...

  • Trae turns one tomorrow!
  • In posts from forever ago, I had posted about working out via Insanity.  I had fantastic results.  I lost five inches in one week!  I lost all my pregnancy weight plus about sixteen more pounds.  Then...
  • I found out I am pregnant again!  We are SO excited.  Baby A, as we are calling him, is due June 28.  And, yes, another boy!
  • I have become an expert smootie maker.  I am drinking a fantastic one right now.  Bananas, Strawberries, Pineapple, Oranges, Greek Yogurt, Honey, Soy Milk.  Yum.

So, I started Insanity tonight... It was ridiculously hard.  I thought I was going to die just in the fit test.  Even though it was miserable, I am still really excited to see what kind of results I will get in two months.  All the Beach Body DVDs that I have gotten have worked really well, so we shall see!  Art and I have some great plans for October and afterward, so it would be nice to be fitting into some of those older clothes that have been sitting in the back of my closet.  I just can't let go of some things, you know?  Those size 6 jeans that I wore to every party in college are still in there... They will probably never be worn again, but I just can't get rid of them.  I mean, size 6, people.  I am not a tiny person, so for me, that is like a double 0.  Haha.

Lately I have been obsessed with the Kardashians.  Why are their TV shows so addicting.  As I sit here typing this, I am secretly dying to watch the marathon that I recorded today... And, I think I will.  Not that I need sleep or anything.  Art has been gone for quite awhile now, and I am getting really burned out on the whole single mom thing.  I don't know how some people do it every day for years and years.  You have my respect, for sure.

This post was all over the place, but hey, I blogged!  It's a start.

As of Lately:

  • I have been un-inspired (lazy) when it comes to blogging.
  • I have been busy making lots of good baby food for Trae.
  • I have been very convicted about the amount of stuff I use on a daily basis.  I am taking steps to use less stuff.
  • I have been getting very into cleaning with natural cleaners, both on my body and around my house.
  • I have been unpacking and thinking that the boxes just multiply while I am asleep.
  • I have been playing with my big yellow dog.
  • I am truly at a very happy state in my life.

Not too long ago, one of my dearest friends told me that everyday, I should say out loud what I am thankful for.  The list keeps getting longer and longer.  I am so blessed.

I am thankful for:

  • A faithful, hard-working husband
  • A healthy and happy little boy
  • My own health and a body that can get up every day
  • A place to live
  • Art's job that provides money for us to have food, clothes, and money to pay bills
  • A church full of people who love me, want to laugh and cry with me, have fun with me, and aren't afraid to correct me when it's needed
  • Pets that make me smile

There are so many more things.  Seriously, though.  I suggest you all try this.  This all came out of me being really down about Art's job and him always being gone.  Doing this has totally changed my perspective.  God is so good.  He has given me so much.

Hello Pre-Pregnancy Weight!

Today I stepped on the scale to see a number I hadn't seen in over a year.  Holla!  I have lost over 65 pounds since February, and every single second of being hungry and exercising was completely miserable.  Haha.  I won't lie.  So, how did I celebrate?  Nope, I didn't go buy new clothes or anything logical... I ordered my favorite pizza.  That's right... And every bite was wonderful.  So, I'm pretty happy with myself and all that, blah, blah...

A Few Pictures

Trae has been entertaining himself for longer lately.  I think this is because he really enjoys sitting up.  However, I am not used to having five to ten minutes of free time when he is awake.  So, I have obviously spent this new found time doing very productive things, like putting sunglasses on Moses.

I'm getting this tattooed on my back soon!  I might have to wait until Art gets home so he can keep Trae while I go with my friends, but still... In the next six weeks, I will have this!  Holla!

And, as I mentioned, Trae is sitting up... I love it.  He is getting so big.  Unlike many mothers, I do not miss the newborn stage.  I love how he is growing, and I can't wait until he can talk and walk.  I just love him so much.
