272 ----> 247

When I stepped on the scale this morning, I couldn't believe my eyes. 
I was so happy, I was so in shock, but mostly proud. 
Tears filled my eyes and I said out loud,
"i'm doing this, im really doing this"
NEVER in my life have I thought that I could lose weight, I thought all I could do was gain it. 
I never put real motivation in, I never put my whole heart into my workouts..
...until now. 
I let myself go, and I feel like i'm finally starting to gain myself back. 
What an amazing feeling.

Weekend run & pumpkin carving.

Had a great weekend! Friday night both kids went to seperate grandparents house, so hubby & I got some great alone time!

 Saturday I went for a jog with Jackson (my dog) he never says "no, im too tired" or "lets stop.." he always wags his tail and can't wait to do another mile with me! I have to say when we got him he was 5 weeks old, and I never would have realized how motivated he made me to become a healthier person.. and I can always count on him at the end of the day having overwhelming love for me, skinny or thick. I love you my dog dude! 

Sunday, I did another run.. it felt SO nice to get out both days on a weekend.. I have to say the hub has been a lot more understanding, and stepping up with the kids when I need some pavement time, he even LEFT for a half an hour so I could do Jillian without him there to distract me.. he's learning ;)

We carved pumpkins- mine looks like a 4 year old did it, but hey wahtever... Hub is AmAHHHHHZING at pumpkin carving, he does his free hand, and the kids picked what the wanted he did it up. He's pretty impressive in bed.
Dont mind what I look like, I just got back from a run :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know I did, wanna know WHY? I hit 249!!!
I'm out of the 250's!!!!!

Not sure about everyone else, but my week has d-raggg-ed. Work sucked, the days seemed so much longer esp with the eating right and control portion size.The weekend has come around, only downfall, rain ALL mothaeffin weekend. 

Yesterday, I got home from work, the hubby & Ry were taking a nap, so I got to lace up and take my main dude, Jackson for a jog with me. Instead of doing 1 block, I did 2 blocks non stop, I was doing leaps of joy when i got back up in my drive way. 

Since, the blog is new, and I have some new fabbbbbb ladies following, I thought it would be fun to do a 10 random things about me, i'd love to read everyone else's :)

4. My daughter is seriously, the most hillarious aspect of my life.

5. I'm deahtly afraid of Johnny Cash's voice and face. :shiverss:

6. Im New York born and raised- upstate that is!

7. My hub and I are very "natural color" people, All of our color schemes in our house are burnt orange, tan, mossy green, browns. 

8. My dad is my bestfriend... always has been, always will be.

30DS.. I hate you in the mornings.

Good morning! 2nd day of 30DS & my hips and legs can feel Jillians wrath. 
Went for a mile late evening run lastnight with my workout partner, I mean look at that excitment!!! 

Pre-run & work out... no make up, work outs dont care what I look like ;)

The only fall back issue i'm having is it's so hard to sqeeze my workouts in with my busy evening scheldue, I get home @ 3pm from work, spend an hour with the hubby before he heads to work (we work different shifts- to save on daycare cost, HOLLA!) Sometimes I can talk J (my 6 year old) to ride his bike while I put Ry into the jogging stroller. Ohhh, how I miss solo runs though. Getting my 30DS in, isn't hard because I can do that when the kids go to bed, or hell they LOVE to do it with me, so if i'm not ready to send them to China, I pop the DVD in and take a deep breathe and suck up some patience, and let them "play" my workout video with me. 

Yesterday, I posted on Mama L's fitness club on facebook about all of us ladies sharing blogs, my hubby got home lastnight at midnight, and that's all I could talk about.. so excited to get a little support system going here! (The little things in life*)

Day 1 of being "best" friends with Jillian

So it begins, I started 30day shred with Jillian. I can feel it this morning... it feels awesome! My 3 year old daughter LOVES to do the video with me, she uses canned veggies as her weights, adorableeees.
Cannot wait to hit it tonight, maybe even TRY to fit in a lite jog.

Lastnight for dinner I had hard boiled eggs and cottage cheese, I think that's my problem.. I almost get brain freeze when it comes to what to cook for dinner for MYSELF, usually I cook my hubby and the 2 kids a "normal" meal, (hubs weighs 150 lbs soaking weight @ 6'0, he would look at me like I had 3 heads if he got served a low cal meal). I'd LOVE to hear from some ladies what you guys cook for dinner!!

and just to brighten up the day*
