Day 8: McJiggle to McHottie

I made it to the gym 4 out of the last 8 days, and am pretty proud of that. I am sore, but the good sore that means my muscles are working. Stephen loves the play room there, Aria is still a little unsure of it. It is kinda weird for me to see people from high school though, I feel like its been so long that I've "been gone." I don't like to see familiar people when I am working out, I want to get in-sweat my ass off (literally)-and get out.

Now if I could just get my diet in check, I will be well on my way to my bikini body.

Day 1 of McJiggle to McHottie

Well today I sucked it up and joined a gym. I've tried the workout dvds at home, I do it for 3 days then never do it again. I need to be in a place where I have no choice but to work out. And since I am paying to go, I will go so I don't waste my money. I initially had a a lot of guilt about wanting to do this. Here is why: My kids are already in daycare 40+ hours a week, so I had a hard time justifying taking them to a different "daycare" so I can workout. But in the end, if I am not happy with me, then I'm not going to be the best mom I can be. I am noticing that my patience has just about run out, and have a very short fuse lately. It could be due to the fact that we have entered the "terrible two's" stage, but I blame me.

So today we all went and it was great. They kids had fun in the play room too. I could have pushed myself a lot harder, but it was only day 1. I did 2 miles on the treadmill and 6 on the bike. I felt great after, hopefully this will give me more energy overall. And make my clothes fit again :)

Water heater take a shit---check. Obviously not something I planned on happening this weekend. Well, the jury is still out on whether or not its completely busted. Not a pleasant surprise when in the middle of doing 6 loads of laundry to go in the basement to see my water heater steaming and gushing water all over the floor. For now it seems okay, but I am watching that thing like a hawk and texting updates to my "landlord."

I was so excited to be outside and cooking on the grill today. The kiddos were all over the place, riding bikes, playing in the sandbox, golfing, baseball, and chasing each other. I LOVE IT. I didn't have time last summer to enjoy the nice weather and just being outside with my kids. I am soaking up every second I have with my kids, they are my world. Trust me, we will be outside everyday we can as much as possible! Besides I have to tend to my garden, I have a feeling it will be my 3rd baby this summer :)

Green Thumb Fever

It's kinda like cabin fever only I am getting VERY antsy to plant my garden. I have spent a good part of my extremely limited free time this week digging out my future garden, with my little "helpers." It started out pretty small, and quickly grew to size of my garage (well the width anyways). I even planted 70 little seedlings in one of those "indoor greenhouse" tray things, and I still need to do more. I have a couple little sprouts already! So far I have: Corn, green beans, big tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, those weird shaped yellow tomatoes, strawberries, pumpkins, and cucumbers. I still want to get bell peppers, green onions,zucchini, some herbs, and I am considering lettuce. I'm going to have veggies coming out of my you know what!!! I can't wait!

Tubes are in...

Stephen's "procedure" was a success and went very smoothly. There was no versed only gas to make him pass out for a couple minutes. And there was no screaming at all. I was so proud of my brave little buddy. They wheeled him away and not a peep from him. I'm not sure he really understood that we weren't going with him. I prepared myself for the non stop screaming for at least an hour, but he just laid in the bed snuggling his blankie and had the death grip on his little car they let him take with. Now I am on water in the ears patrol. I didn't even wash his hair during his bath today because I was so paranoid. A successful day :)

Big Day Tomorrow...

Finally after countless ear infections, my little buddy is getting tubes in his ears. I am very excited for no more ear infections and no longer needing to repeat myself 6 times every time I say something to Stephen. The doc said his hearing is comparable to walking around with your thumbs in your ears. So I am expecting the worst but hoping for the best tomorrow. Nothing to eat after midnight, then there is the anesthesia. Last time Stephen had this gas (for his tongue tied procedure) he woke up screaming for 2 hours. I bought some little presents for him to have after he wakes up, in hopes to avoid the non stop screaming. So everyone send some positive energy tomorrow around 8am.
