General update

Well I wish I could update something exciting, but the truth of the matter is that I have no life. Don't get me wrong. I'm perfectly happy having no life. No drama is fantastic in my eyes. I sit at home everyday with my beautiful babies and I love it. My house is actually clean and I would not be embarrassed if someone stopped by to visit. That would not have been the case a few months ago. I just pray it continues to work out financially. I believe it will because I believe that this is exactly the path I've been heading to for years. I feel confident that this is right where I'm supposed to be. I am actually able to see my children growing before my very eyes. Kollin and Hunter are as big as ever. Avianna is as little as ever, but boy is she on the go. She is nearly running now. She doesn't crawl at all anymore. She says Daddy, Mama sometimes but usually Nana. She is supersweet. Oh well, that's all I've really got for now. Maybe I'll have something more to update soon. Loves.

Not a diet. A lifestyle change!!

So I know I've been talking about dieting but not actually doing anything. I think that I thought if I talked about it to enough people then that would motivate me to actually do it. Obviously that wasn't the approach that I needed. What did work for me however was watching Half ton Dad, Half ton Mom, and Half ton teen on TLC last Sunday. I was watching it thinking...what person actually lets themselves get like this? How does a person just sit by and get this huge? Suddenly the answer was clear. They get there by doing exactly what I have been doing.......that would be absolutely nothing. They enjoyed their food too much and their exercise too little. I thought to myself that if I don't do something now I'm going to end up like one of these half ton people. My eating habits really aren't terrible. My drinking habits on the other hand are awful. I drink at least a two liter a day of Sundrop. Anybody know how many calories is in a two liter of Sundrop? Just a little over 1000 calories a day in Sundrop alone....good grief!! Can you imagine? If I eat anything like an average human being then I consume around 2000 calories a day in food and then when you add in that Sundrop....well to say the least it's no wonder I'm so overweight!! Anyways those stories actually did it. I have been dieting for one week and a day. As of this morning I have lost 3lbs (yay). I have been (mostly) leaving the sundrop alone, drinking water, eating the Special K Blueberry cereal for breakfast, having an Activia yogurt for a snack, having a small sandwich or a lean pocket for lunch, having a small bowl of special k for another snack and then having a fairly normal supper but with smaller portions. I'm eating fairly often so I don't get super hungry, but I'm ditching at least 1000 calories a day by not drinking my sundrop all day. I have let myself have a few sips on a few days. I have been doing 5-10 min of yoga a day. I know that isn't much but it's all this stupid body can do for now. Hopefully I'll build up to longer before long! Anyways, I just wanted to share my small success with everybody. Hope everyone is well!!
