Beating the sugar

I have to be honest and say, I am NOT a fan of the Easter bunny. He is still haunting me

candy is everywhere!!!

I. can’t. Stop. eating!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is very frustrating to get back on the wagon. I was doing so well

Even with all the food consumption, I have been making it to the gym for some great workouts. Mini crossfit, being sore from yesterday, and today was 30 min on the elliptical and 30 min walking on the treadmill at an incline

Later, Andrew and I went to the park and played baseball for 45 minutes

I have been looking at pinterest for inspiration…..

My next step…to make a “board” to put on my frig

Hopefully it will help me stay away…. (or maybe I should get some locks!)

Question for you:

How do you get back on track after holidays?

mr flowers didn’t survive the winter

I guess its time….

I obviously can’t talk about everything that is going on in my life. A girl has to keep some secrets right?!?! 😉

So if we back up a bit… I haven’t seen Mr Flower’s since October (this  is the last time he was here) Even though there has been skype, it just wasn’t the same.

In December, I was suppose to head to Kansas to visit him and his twin girls. The night before, he canceled. There is a lot going on in his life, and I understood. Well it happened again just a week ago. After a lot of thought, prayers, and tears, I realized I wasn’t a priority in the relationship anymore. It has been going on for awhile.

I decided I deserved to be treated better.  It was extremely difficult, especially since I believed that he was “the one”

decision

of course, family and friends have there for me.

My friend Shannon sent me this, just as a reminder that you shouldn’t wait around for the wrong one

Mandy, my sister in law, and I are going shopping this Sunday. A girl always needs to shop

 My dad has been helping me with my house. And my mom has been asking me constantly how I am doing

All my friends have been texting and calling to see how things are going. Amanda is trying to get me out there already haha

laughter

Even with all that help…..the songs, my house, food, you know everything, reminds me of Mr. Flowers. I know it will just take time, but it has been really hard. I also need to stay busy and one day I’ll be ready to get out there.

I have been going to yoga and working out. Its time to focus on me (and andrew) for a little bit 🙂

Easy Project

My brother is always saying the home projects I pick are alittle difficult haha. Well a few days ago, I picked up a few items because I was going to finish an easy pinterest project. And another wreath for the house

There was really only a few steps. First, I wrapped the wreath with blue and red yarn. This was the most time consuming part.

I also spray painted a few stars

I finally got a glue gun!

And attached them to the wreath- ALL DONE!

you can find the project here.

Last Day!

Last Day of First grade that is. How crazy is that?!?!?!

Ok. Let’s move on 😦

Today, is just random. But days like today make life exciting and fun.

First, I found some protein powder at Sam’s. FOUR LBS OF IT!!!!

Strength training workout of the day: Dumbbell Tricep Extensions (demo from sparkpeople.com)

Andrew had his last day of first grade.

The first second graders met at Ted Drews for a nice treat. The kids were everywhere!

I am going to start another project. Thanks pinterest! This one should only take an hour or so (more to come on that)

And look what I found on my way to bed!

Well, I hope you had a great Thursday.

Question for you:

Do you use protein powder?

What is your favorite way to use protein powder?

-I put it in with my green monster shakes. YUM!

Happy News

Today, started with a field trip with Andrew and his classmates to the zoo. Oh man. I don’t think I could be a teacher. I only had five kids in my group, but WOW I’m exhausted haha.

Andrew and I actually left straight from the zoo (skipping the lovely bus ride) to get to his ENT appointment. From November, he was always having ear infections or strep. We finally met with an allergist a few weeks ago, and today we met to talk about if he needs tubes in his ears, or his tonsils out. LUCKILY! We are thinking neither! WAHOOOOOOOOO

She said, we just need to keep an eye on him. I am so happy that at this moment he is doing so well, and hasn’t been sick in two months!

Now to leave you with a pinterest quote

And a found these old photos…..

Andrew when he first came home from the hospital

Question for you:

What is your favorite animal at the zoo?

 

Just for giggles

Since I wrote SOOOOOO much yesterday, I thought I would just share some things I found on good o’ pinterest. I know it seems like a silly site, but I actually find recipes, workouts, and quotes.

These are a few that have meaning to me, after the past few days of needing a pick me up

The last one is my favorite 🙂

I hope you all are having an amazing day. Thanks for listening. This blog is like my diary, and I’m lucky to have amazing people who listen. Thank you.

Question for you:

Any funny quotes, pictures, or things you found online? or just in life?

– Today, I accidentally poked Andrew in the eye. After yelling OUCH, he asked “Am I going to have to wear a patch now?” haha. I about died.
