Nut Note

Yes, we are still here.  We are nearing month six of no Daddy, and baby Evelyn is 26 weeks.  

The boys are loving baby Evie. I must admit, I am a bit surprised…ha ha.  They like to feel her move, and, sometimes, they say they want her out…  We then discuss that she isn’t NEARLY ready yet.  😉

My four year old is still his same old self.  My two year old, however, has lost his mind.  He’s closer to three than two at this point, but everyone swears he’s hitting terrible two’s.  He thinks he a miniature sized boss!  

Not much longer and DADDY can deal with it!  😉  lol

In case I have not informed you darling folks, I started two new business this winter.  I am now an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay and a Beach Body Coach.  Promoting a beautiful you on the inside AND out!  I love both of these companies, and I am having a blast with them.

I have also taken up sewing…  I have been sewing things to put in the baby’s room. 🙂

Keeping busy and trying not to go crazy in this itty bitty world. 🙂  

Wish me luck!  😉

New Year, Dirty House?

So far, I am doing well with all my goals.  I have done more of my workout videos in the last week, than I did the whole month of December.  I, EVEN, became an official Beach Body Coach!  😉  Love, Love, Love my shakes and my get fit video!  Don’t be surprised if a THIRD blog pops up.  😉

I have been contemplating our garden.  It is not NEARLY big enough to make enough food to can, but we could at least eat well all summer.  I just need to optimize space and get it going!

I have, definitely, been reading AND blogging more.  I, finally, started “Dreams of Joy”.  I have been wanting to read it forever….LOVE Lisa See!  It is as awesome, so far, as I thought it would be. 🙂  We will, also, be starting a new book at church next Tuesday, “Bad Girls of the Bible“.  I will, definitely, update you on that book as soon as I start it!  🙂

I have been writing a lot in my other blog: Voyage Towards Up.  I missed you all, though, and I wanted to stop in and say HELLO!

The kids are doing great. 🙂  They are so smart, and I can honestly say my patience with their “not smart actions” is getting better.  Day by Day…

The problem that I have found with all the “bettering me” stuff is that it is worsening the house! I am making time for the things I want to accomplish, but now the house looks like this on a pretty constant basis!

If anyone out there has a plan to remedy this, PLEASE help!  😉

Fitness Update

I will admit, I have not kept up with my Brazil Butt Lift videos..  :-/  However, thanks to today being a rest day, I am only one day behind!  😉

It seems to be a quite fun set of videos, but I will, DEFINITELY, be taking some time to figure out HOW to do them!  (lol)  And, figure out which ones I can actually do…  For example, I am currently watching a 20 minute video called “Tummy Tuck”….  I am not sure I can do any of this one.  (For those who may have missed my earlier blog post, I am now 21 1/2 weeks pregnant.)

I think what has been holding me back is the unknown…  I’m bad about feeling like I need to set a huge amount of time aside to do something that will take 45 minutes, because I am unsure of it.  Now that I have done almost all of them once, I think it’ll be easier to get up and going.

Learning them is a whole other story, though!

If you know me, you already know.  If you don’t know me, I CAN’T DANCE!  NOT AT ALL!  No rhythm….  They do the simplest foot work in these videos, and I just can’t get my feet to do it…  My brain knows it’s just a couple steps, but my feet…  Not getting it!  Don’t even get me started on where my hips end up.  :-/

The best part is when I think I am getting it, and that darling man from the video says, “Let’s add another step!”  REALLY!!  Four steps he says…aye…   I usually end up bouncing in circles and such…lol…until I find a move I know.  🙂

I do think I can figured them out…  This is just the start.  😉

Why do I tell you these things, you may ask??  Who cares, really??!?  I share, because I figure ifcan get going and do these videos, so can anyone!!!

I am a play sports, go for a run/walk type person.  Not a “workout” person.  I think I could get into this, though!

***What I am most thankful for:  These are at home workout videos!***

(Yes, I close the blinds.  🙂

Now, for my squat challenge :-/ and a SHAKE! Then, the library.  There, now you know my day.  🙂

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: Start now!!!  🙂  Order the video and “move those hips” as he says!***

This picture will take you to a coach…  However, I am surrounded at this point.  Take your pick…  And no, they don’t need to be near you.  They are just helpful and encouraging souls that sell you the right stuff and help you keep it going.  😉  FACEBOOK!

Newest Journey

I am 17 1/2 weeks pregnant, and I started a workout program today: Brazil Butt Lift!  Yes!!!

I felt kind of silly doing measurements and before pictures….  I am going to measure AND look bigger in February…lol.

measure tape

Not the point, though.

With my first, I worked full time until 38 weeks… at which time everyone insisted I quit and rest before the baby got here…

With my second, I walked a three or four mile MOD walk at 35 weeks.  No problem.

With my third (now), I am AWFUL!  I get exhausted walking up stairs; daily activities wear me out!  Working forty hours a week (like with my first), YEAH RIGHT!  :-/

I do realize I am pregnant, and I do know I can’t push a NEW workout regimen TOO hard.  I do know all of this, but I am excited to start feeling better!!

Sixty squats? No problem!  :-/

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: There’s no better time than now to get healthy!!  Why wait?!***

(I do know Christmas cookies are hard to deny…  I said workout regimen; I did not say no holiday goodies!  😉

For giggles, here’s the before picture!

Warning…17 1/2 weeks pregnant and white as a ghost!  Shield your eyes!!
