Today was a busy day for us. The girls had dance class and right afterwards they had a birthday party to attend. I was feeling pretty good when I woke up. And then, things changed. I started feeling a bit nauseous this morning. I actually ate breakfast-cereal at that and a glass of chocolate milk. Well, my nausea worsened. While we were at the birthday party I started to feel extremely nauseous. I felt like was going to throw up. And my breasts are extremely sore(still). My body is just weirding out and playing tricks on me. I know that my husband and I were trying for a baby. But I just don't think that I would be having all of these symptoms this soon. It all started on Wednesday. I still have 2 weeks until I can take a test. The suspense is killing me! My sinuses are feeling much better today. Still a little bit sore in my facial muscles, but feeling better than yesterday. Still working on a headache. Hopefully I will be feeling better on Monday. I just haven't been feeling well enough to make it through a workout. I want to get back into working out. Next week there is a virtual 5K. I signed up for and I am hoping to complete it in under 60mins. Or at 60mins. I found this 5K that is called diva dash. It isn't til like august, but I am stoked. I want to do that so badly! It just looks so fun. And the girls can do a little diva dash. But to be able to do that. I would have to finish the 5K in less than an 1hr and then immediately start the fun dash with the girls. I'm not sure how I would be able to do that. I'll figure something out by then.

Not feeling quite right

Well, this week has been interesting. Our oldest daughter got the flu. I stayed home with the girls on Monday & Tuesday. About Wednesday I started feeling a bit funny. On Wednesday I had some nausea(not a lot) and head congestion. Thursday I had a lot more nausea- I had to eat crackers and drink ginger ale at work. I still had head congestion and some cramping, and my breasts are a little sore. Today, I am still feeling like yesterday-head congestion, nausea(on & off) cramping and my breasts are still a little sore. I know it is not that time of the month, cause that isn't for a couple of weeks. But my nausea caused me to reschedule my training session. I just didn't want to feel like this while trying to train and get back to working out. Hopefully I will start feeling better this weekend, so I can start working out on Monday. I really want to get back into working out. I have a goal to do a 5K, 10K and 15K this year. Last year we did like 4 or 5- 5K. But also I want to get our 5Ks under 1hr. yes I know, under an 1hr-geez. But lets face it, I'm getting in shape. And yes we walk slow-mostly for me. So I want to improve my 5K time. I think that our 15K time has to be under 1 1/2hrs, so I really need to work on that. I need to start walking and increase my time and increase my length. Hopefully this weekend will be a weekend of recovery.

Well, the flu bug has hit our house. I got to spend the day at home today. Our oldest daughter has the flu, and is not allowed to go to school today or tomorrow. & today our youngest has been running a fever all day. So that means that I am spending the days at home. Which I don't mind, though I need the money. So somehow I need to make up the hours. This also means that I will not being going to the gym today or tomorrow. I have a training session set up for Friday. It is only 30mins but it will be nice to get back into working out. It seems strange. I don't like working out. Actually I HATE working out, but I love the way it makes me feel. I LOVE the way it makes me feel. Even after I day of working out, I feel great for days after. I got some laundry done and sorting through clothes. Something I have seemed to notice. It seems like when you want a baby or you are pregnant there are pregnant people everywhere you turn. Well, I just realized today, that it seems like everyone I know is pregnant. What is up with that. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love our life and I love our girls and if God decides that we are only going to be blessed with the two girls that we have. I will be ok. But I pray that God allows us to be blessed with another child.

Out of Shape

Ok, so the day after I went back to the gym. My feet were killing me. Killing me! And later in the day. Man, oh man. My legs were feeling it too. It felt so good to go work out. I didn't make it for the rest of the week, but I did a major cleaning on Friday. I cleaned our bedroom and did about 8 loads of laundry! I am still feeling good from working out. I have decided that I really need to keep up with it. I am planning on going to the gym on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Friday during the day on Friday. Jeff and I have two beautiful girls, but we are trying for another child. We think that the time is right. I have been praying for a while for one of my friends that has been having a hard time. And for us. I really am having baby fever(bad)!!! God has put it in my heart for another child. I think my dad is a bit nervous though. He watches our girls while Jeff and I are at work. But a newborn is a whole different story and he hasn't taken care of a newborn in 27 years. (That is how old my little sister is). I know that God will provide. And we were talking about the promises that God gives us. And though I don't think God ever promises us children or more children. He does put those desires in our hearts. I had salmon for lunch today. It was so yummy! I'll admit it. I'm so bad about blogging. I got on the computer everyday this week, even to read another blog everyday, but never even though about blogging myself. I need to get better about blogging everyday. I am loving being able to spend time with my family!

Back to the gym

Today was my 1st day back to the gym. Wow, I'm out of shape. I did the treadmill. Ran for 2 mins straight. And did some inclines for the rest of the time. I ended up doing 50mins total. My feet were killing me after a while. So I will not be wearing though shoes back to the gym for a while. I felt good after my workout was all done. Jeff and I are planning on going to the gym together after work. Our plan is to go to the gym on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and then I will go by myself on Friday mornings. Work was good today, and even though I eat junk, mostly at work. I was way under my calorie range. I burned 500calories during my workout! :) The girls are crying and fake crying, because they don't want to go to bed. It is my turn, so off to read a book and then off to bed. I'm tired and I'm glad it is bedtime.

Back Spasms

Well, I didn't make it to the gym tonight. Right before I left work, somehow I made my back spasm. I don't know what I did, but I am at home trying to make it feel better. So far, that is not working. I've taken 2 muscle relaxers and it is still not helping this pain. I just don't know what I did to my back. I'm gonna have to go to work tomorrow, so I've got to suck it up. I'm gonna go to bed early tonight. My back might be killing me, but these muscle relaxers, sure do make me tired. I didn't leave work til 5:30 today. Hopefully my back is feeling better in the morning and I get to leave work earlier than I did today. then I will take the girls to the gym. We are starting the Dave Ramsey financial peace study at church soon. Hopefully it will help us to get on track and stay that way. We are still hoping for a new addition to our family this year, so we need to get money saved up and start being smart with our money. Well, I'm off to bed.

Game Plan Figured Out

Well, yesterday cleaning did not go completely well. We got the Christmas stuff down, but other than that not much got done. I did kind of set up a game plan. My plan is to eat under 1800 calories. Somewhere between 1500-1800 calories. I am going to make it a habit again to workout. The plan is to work out at least 3 days/week. I am gonna take the girls to the gym tomorrow when I get off of work. I have to start eating healthier too. It seems at work, I either don't eat anything or it just ends of being junk food. I am not gonna give up junk food, but eating a candy bar or a couple pieces of chocolate everyday is not bad, but eating that for lunch and snacking on it later too is not a good thing. I am charging my body media bodybugg, so I can start wearing it again. It will be a good thing to keep track of the calories I'm burning again. Hopefully keeping track of my calories in and calories out again will keep me on track. I have got to lose this weight again. Right now, my goal is to lose as much weight as I can until we get pregnant and then stay healthy during my pregnancy and not gain to much weight. It seems like everyone I know is pregnant of trying to get pregnant. When I was pregnant before it seemed like everyone I saw was pregnant and there were babies everywhere. So hopefully my good friend will be getting pregnant and we will be expanding. So, hopefully. Only God knows when.

Game Plan

Yesterday, my mom and I went to the Jenks Nutrition to check out the weight loss club that they have going on. Well, it sounded interesting. My mom was not quite so interested, but I was intrigued. At the end of the meeting, my mom said we will think about it and sign up on Tuesday if we are interested. So we get in the car and my mom was telling me about what she read. That if you gain weight from 1 week to the next, you have to pay up to $5. And if you can not make a meeting for any reason, you have to pay another $5. Ok, so the $39 start up fee was not that bad, but the extra costs. Um. I don't think so. I really don't want to pay money if I gained any weight. Like I told my mom. I am at the age, where there are some weeks that I may gain weight and there isn't anything I can do about it(you know that time of month that all women love). Plus my husband and I are in the process of talking about expanding our family again. So, I will be making my own game plan at home. My goal for tomorrow is to clean and make a game plan to get back on track and start working out again. I know I can do this. I was doing really good for a while and had lost over 20lbs and kept it off for a couple of months, but then I stopped working out and started eating whatever again. I went to Sam's today and bought some fresh fish and some frozen fish. Yum! I also went to Bed, Bath & Beyond and got a kitchen scale and a mixing drink cup. I am excited about the drink cup. I know that sounds dumb, but I am excited. I am gonna take it to work and make a shake at work everyday. And maybe an apple too. That way I will be eating something at work and it will be healthy. I will update tomorrow about the game plan when I figure out what it is. I will also put my weight and measurements, as my starting point. Hopefully it has not gotten horrible since the last time I measured myself. I guess I will see tomorrow. Good night ya all.

Healthy Habits

I am going to join a weight loss club tomorrow. It is local and meets every week. I think it is kind of like weight watchers, but not. I will know more tomorrow after the sign up and informational meeting. I have some gift cards from Christmas and I can't quite figure out what to spend them on. I am currently thinking about a juicer, kitchen scale or a body fat hand held machine. I just can't decide which one I want to get. I found some races to do this year. I wanted to do the Go Short, Go Long, Go Very Long, however I have decided that I am not sure that I will be able to handle the cold. The race is at the end of the month, so it is not very much time for planning, and plus I am a big baby about the cold. I will tell you that my husband and I are in talks of expanding our family again. We are trying. No baby this month, but when God decides the time is right, He will bless us. In the meantime my goal is to save up money and pay off debt & lose as much weight as I can, the healthy way. Making a lifestyle change now though, can continue throughout pregnancy. One day at a time.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year,
Well, my starting of a blog post last year didn't go so well. I was really really bad about writing everyday, or even every month. I was in the place of saying that, I will start this diet tomorrow. And tomorrow I will give up Dr. Pepper. But then, my favorite blogger- Runs for Cookies. Reminded me that you should make a change you aren't willing to do forever. Don't give up something you aren't willing to give up forever. Well, I love my Dr. Pepper. So I am not sure honestly that I could really give it up forever. But I have decided that I could have maybe 1 a day, with dinner, or for just a special treat. I had been drinking one in the morning, and then again one at night. But not really drinking anything in between. so today I had water in the morning and drank it all day. By the time I was done working my 8hrs, I had drank about 9 cups of water. So that will definitely work for me, and if I stop wasting my money on buying Dr. Pepper, then I will be able to stop drinking it so much. I need to find quick, little- on the go meals that I can eat at work and on Wednesdays when I take the girls to AWANA. I am gonna start working out again. Sometime after we went on vacation, I just stopped going to the gym and stopped working out completely. I have no idea why. So, I am definitely going back to the gym. I felt so much better when I was working out, even though I don't like to do, I feel so much better after I have done it. I have made some goals for 2013.

Goals for 2013
Run more races at least 5-5K and 1-15K
Lose weight- at least 30lbs
Run a whole 5K
Start a savings
Pay off debt- at least 3 credit cards
Drink more water- at least 8 cups a day
Have a baby(or at least get pregnant)
Read my bible everyday(& get through the entire bible this year)
Blog more-try to blog everyday
