Alright alright

So its been a week and a few days. I have had a hard time making this life change. When there is no healthy food to eat its either eat what you have or starve. So I havent done the best job, although with pop I have been doing really well. I have been drinking lots of water, and my headache has been minimal.  I think this week I will start doing my palates in the morning, maybe that will help keep me focused. I know that this change isnt going to happen over night.  And I just need to keep going and keep trying. Thanks for all your support.

No longer gonna be your DUFF

You are probably wondering what a DUFF is...well it is Designated Ugly Fat Friend. You can't deny that you have one of these, everyone does. You might not want to admit it, but we all do. Someone who makes us feel better about ourselves when we are around them. I am pretty sure that I am at least 2 friends DUFF.

Well I am tired of being the DUFF.  I have decided its time for a life change and not a diet. Diets don't last. So that means no more late night pizzas, no more Pepsi, and no more sugar. I am just so tired of looking at myself and feeling ashamed. I am tired of being over 220 lbs, its depressing. I am ready to say goodbye to my large belly and size "G" boobs and HUGE ASS. oh and double chin can't forget that.

Today is the first day of this life change, it is most likely going to involve some Tylenol. And it is going to be hard because there are 3 2litters of Pepsi, and left over pizza in the fridge. I know what your thinking, who makes a life change in the middle of the week, with no healthy food in the house. THIS GIRL. Thats me, unprepared but ready for a change.

Thank Goodness I have a supportive husband who is going to make the change too, after of course he finishes the pizza and pop in the fridge. LOL

So I will keep you updated on my progress and post a picture once a week. Wish me luck.

Wow! A whole Year since my last post! Crazy

Boy I guess life gets pretty busy when you have four kids. I don't even know where to start. I guess I would start at the fact that we no longer live in Michigan. Rob got a new job with Menards, a hardware store located in many states in the midwest. With this new job we moved to Illinois. Funny thing about this move is that we live in Illinois, Rob works in Wisconsin, and we got to church in Iowa. We live in the Tri-State area. It nice here, so beautiful, and the mississippi river is so awesome. The kids have started school and have been going for a month now. Raef and Brady are enjoying football season. So far they have won their first games. Kaylee has started Gymnastics and loves it. She has only gone to one class so far, but she talks about it like she has done it forever.Brady was baptised on mine and Rob's anniversary. It was so special. Cooper went to Nursery for the first time on Sunday. It was the first time church wasn't crazy.
Well I guess that about it.

So it has been a few months since I have been on my blog. I have been just using face book to keep up with everyone.
Things are going good here.
Since the last time I was on my blog a few things have happened. The biggest news was that Cooper was born on March 9th at 10:49pm, he was 7 lbs 1 ounce 19 1/2 inches long. He is almost 3 months old and is 23 1/2 inches long and just over 11lbs. He is getting so big. He has blue, blue eyes and he has blond hair "peach fuzz". He has been sleeping really well at night. about 4 to 5 hours at a time. Its is great.
Kaylee is doing well, she is loving being a big sister. I don't think she lets Cooper have more than 15 minutes to himself the whole day. She is getting really big she is 3 1/2 feet tall, she wears size 6t shirts and 5t pants, she has a long upper half. I swear she gets more beautiful everyday. We plan on getting her into tennis this summer. She wants to play a sport like her brothers, she has so much energy we think it will be a good thing for her to do.
Brady is so wonderful. He is reading so good and surprises us everyday with how much he knows. He is working hard at being more like his big brother. He is beginning to love to play sports, last year he wasn't so much into it, but this year he wants to play. He is in coach pitch baseball and he can hit the ball. We were thinking of keeping him in T Ball but we are really glad we didn't. He is excited to be on the same team as Raef. The two of them get along so well. Brady is still little he is only a few inches taller than Kaylee, and I cant get that kid to eat anything. Unlike Raef, who eats anything and everything, and if he doesn't like it he will still eat it and just not have seconds.
Raef is doing really well. He is excited for Summer because 3 grade was harder for him and he is ready to have a break. He still did really well in school, but it was more work than he expected. He is playing baseball on Brady's team and is one of the oldest kids on the team and does really good. He plays the catcher position and loves it. He likes being able to help Brady get better at playing. They go outside and play catch and hit balls with Rob. Raef hits the ball so hard he is starting to hit the house next door so now they are going to have to go practice at the park.
Rob is doing great. he finished his Bachelors Degree and has decided to go back to school for his Masters. Every morning he wakes up at 3:45 and goes to the gym before he goes to work. I am so proud of him. He works so hard.
Me well I'm doing good. I have started working as a Pharmacy Tech at Rite Aid. I love it. I love learning what each pill does. I have learned so much the last two months. I also have been working out at curves.
A couple of weeks ago we had our big tire swing tree fall over, and we have been cleaning up the mess that it has caused. Lucky for us it didn't hit the house. We have some deep holes in the ground from where the branches hit. The kids are sad because the swing is gone. Rob and I are OK with it because now we have a blank canvas so we can plant new trees back there. We are thinking Birch, Crab apple, and Red bud trees.
Well I think that is about it.
