Legs so sore!!

My legs are hurting sooo terribly bad that I decided that I was taking the day off from walking. Let alone the fact that I had to have my lil man at an end of school year party, and then to watch the finale of the Biggest Loser. with NO treadmill... GRRRR... but it's ok, it was a choice that I made and I will survive :) I have done really well the last couple of weeks and am making great progress.. the number on the scale is coming down...

I hope you all have a GREAT day!

What a surprise.. AAALLLLLLL that food I ate yesterday and I LOST a pound.. WHAT?!?! I WILL TAKE IT!!

I did extremely well today with my walk...

103 minutes

779 calories

6.02 miles

I'm finding I'm racking up the mileage while I don't have the treadmill and I think that could be telling me something! besides the fact that I'm getting vit. D while I'm at it!

Have a GREAT day!

cheat day

I had a lil cheat day today.. I was DIEING for some donuts (Krisp Kreme) and then my mother in law made a GREAT lunch.. then went to swim at my sister's house. Had a great time..

My treadmill decided it didn't like me today, SOOO i had to kick in a DVD.. I got in a 2.25 miles walk before we went for the swim, I'm not counting the swim as exercise as I did more laying around than anything. This was the 1st time in YEARS that I put on a swim suit and still surprised that i did..

2.25 miles in 37 minutes and burned 311 calories..

will be going for another walk this afternoon so i will definately update when I get back

ok here are my total... I'm even SHOCKED

97 minutes

5.74 miles

795 calories

i'm super so excited.. especially since my treadmill is NOT working

Have a GREAT evening!!

Hope ya'll have a Great Evening!

I'm so happy I have accomplished so much this week! I have stayed on my caloric ranges and the goals I have alllmost reached them all. I was aiming to try to burn ay least 700 calories a day, well some days are easier than others. With that being said, I returned back to work from my vacation today, so my body was WHOOPED! I did get in my milage though, just wish I could have hit more calories, I am not disappointed though.

Here's my stats:

90 minutes 5.25 miles and 613 calories

I am very happy as I have dropped a pound or two! I will weigh in prolly Sat. morning and give my results then!

Have a Great Day!

ouch are my legs SORE!

I decided to walk early today since my legs were hurting. I think it's from starting back to walking with a vengence. My motivation and determination are very high right now, as I really want to lose 20 pounds before I see my OB in a few weeks. I know I can do it.(or at least come really really close).

I had another great walk, although I really wanted to see the calories burnt up in the 700''s but it wasn't. So, later I may walk another mile or 2 later this evening, and if I do, I will definately update.

So my standings for now is:

90 minutes 5.1 miles 613 calories

again I'd really love to get another 200 calories burnt, but we shall see, I'm really happy with what I've done

Have a Good day!

went for that afternoon walk with the family!! had a great time with them, I love how my hubby says, "we going for a walk?" and I know to say yes, because my kids look forward to the family time!!

here are the stats

1.6 miles in 29 minutes for 197 calories

I ended up with over 800 calories burnt.. YAY!!!

Have a great evening!

I am so proud of me!!

I had another great day with the family,and even got in a 2 hour nap, something I'm starting to enjoy doing on Sundays, a much needed break!!

Hope everyone has a GREAT week!!

Today was a very good day! I spent a lot of much needed time with my hubby. We went to a bar b q at the church and then went to a friend of ours lil girl's birthday party. I ate WAYYY to much, but I did come home and jump on the treadmill. I changed my routine and can I say it felt WONDERFUL!!!

I walked on 3.5 for a half a mile and then ran on 6 for 30 sec. and then went back to the walking for an HOUR AND A HALF.. can you say I was BEAT!!! But feel GREAT!!

90 minutes 5.5 miles and burned 733 calories.. WOOT WOOT!!!

accountability is a HUGE thing.. oh i couldn't walk yesterday cause dear ole Aunt Flo HATED ME!!! ha ha!

Have a good one!!!

I was sitting watching GAC this morning, and I started thinking about my lil bean. A friend of mine that I went to high school with told me, to pray that the bean prays for me. I never thought of looking at like that, since s/he is in my Father's Arms. Then my sister told me to imagine my neice holding them and singing a lullaby to them. (yes that brought tears to my eyes). The point I am making is this, God didn't give me what He didn't want me to have, SOOO...


I decided that I will walk every day, and build myself back up to where I was before the miscarriage. Yes, I said this before, BUT I now have people, FRIENDS, holding me accountable. :)

I do so much better when someone tells me to do something!! I have set a goal to lose 20 pounds before my NEXT vacation, which is July 8. EXACTLY, a year from my surgery last year, and YES it is attainable, and I know it is!

So, I'm going to TRY to post everyday on my blog, my feeling, and what exercises I did, and how long, starting today...

I walked 5 miles, in 90 minutes, and felt really good. may go for another walk later, if I feel up for it.

Thanks to each of you for supporting me!!

Much Love,

May 11, 2010

Today was my due date for my little Miracle that God called home on Sept. 25, 2009. Please keep me in your prayers, the last couple of days have been hard. I know that when the time is right He will bless me with a child, but I am getting very very impatient here. We do have a dr. appt. for June 9, so maybe we can get some little bean started 1 way or another!
Thanks for the comments, emails, and love from all of you!!

Have a Good Day!

Happy Mothers Day

This year is going to be extremely hard, BUT I can do it! I would have been due this Tuesday with my lil bundle of joy that God called home back in Sept. I know everything happens for a reason, and I accept that and will not dwell on it today.

The things I have learned from my kids:

* They love to interrupt you when- cooking.... taking a shower...peeing.... taking a nap... talking on the phone... LOL!! but I am reminded that they are doing JUST fine!! I wouldn't trade those moments for anything.. did I mention.. having to pee while I am in the shower.. fighting while I am on the phone.. lol!! seriously.. every time.. but again wouldn't trade it for a thing..

* They love me unconditionally. Whether I am having a very bad day or a great day. They love me more than I can ever imagine! (But I love them that much more!)

* Never take them for granted. I am very lucky to have 2 GREAT, INTELLIGENT, and HEALTHY kids. They make me very proud of who they are and who they are becoming.

* The word "mommy". It can be used MILLIONS of ways. And each way has it's own meaning, and I wouldn't change a thing. Especially when Cody SCREAMS MOOOOOOM! all I have to do is say "Tiff". ha ha! (poor girl stays in more trouble when he screams that!)

* You don't have to spend money to make them happy. My kids are some of the few that just appreciate everything we give them. They enjoy our family time. I love to hear, "are we going walkinmg today"? although they have to talk me into going, I know they love going somewhere with us, and it doesn't cost a penny! and we get "quiet, family time" something noone can ever replace, and they can get into some deep conversatons on those walks.

Those are just a few things. But those kids light up my world daily. yes we have our ups and downs but I wouldn't trade a thing. HECK.. I'm trying to have more kids! I never thought I wanted them until my "oops" happened and we call her Tiffany, and about 6 months into that, I decided I wanted a whole bunch of those lil curtain crawlers! I had 2 perfect pregnancies, when I was younger, and have the best 2 kids I could ever ask for! They are Christians, they love the Lord, do great in school, and value our family! (and pray nightly that mommy has another baby, healthy this time Lord and HURRY!! that is words from them! PRICELESS!!!)

I will call my mother today, it will be short and sweet, and I am not in much of a relationship with her, as she is an alcoholic that refuses to get help, and I refuse to let her bring me down on our day!

I hope each of you sit back and enjoy the day with your families. If you are a mom, Happy Mother's Day to you!! If you are trying, like me, hang in there, it'll happen when it's meant to!

Have a GREAT DAY!!
