Home and now a tallmama of THREE kiddo's

So we have a son! We named him Jett and we got him on March 29th. We got back home yesterday (30th) and are getting sorted out after being gone sooooo long. He is doing really good. He's 11 days old today, and such a sweetie! Oh and I'm down weight wise. Who knew, you would NOT think I would be the way I was eating (lots of chocolate!) I am 230.2 sooo close to the 20's!!! so that is a total loss of 34.6 and since Jan a loss of 19 pounds!

im alive

this will be short, but by request I am alive...we should know today if we will have a baby BOY joining our family or not. It has been beyond stressful waiting, and there is always something putting a twist in to things but hopefully today we'll know. We are still away from home, I havent' been home since my last post and that has been hard too. I promise I will post when I have some news and TIME.

Made it to the gym ...and off on a road trip

Hey so I made it to the gym and had an amazing work out. I ran 3x 10and1's for a total run time of 30min (38 incl walking) and 30min on the bike. I calculated AP's at 14. Does that sound crazy? It does to me. But it's probably because I am running with so much extra weight still. It really felt good though.
I am switching my days to wed. so Mon and Tues have been floater days. I haven't been great but I haven't been horrible. and with 14 aps today I think I'll do OK.
I'm off to visit my in laws, then probably my mom so will be gone for 1-2 weeks. May be back with a baby, may not. We'll just have to see....

I think I need to change the Day my Week Starts

So I've noticed ever since I switched to Monday being my new start day...I slack off pretty bad come the weekend. I self talk myself by saying that it's only 2 (1) more days till I start a new week. I feel like I can be easy and not track as I'm starting a new week so soon. But we all know this rationalization doesn't work. When I started Tues was my start date and it seemed to work well. But if I switch I think I'll switch to Wed. right in the middle...but those 2 days till I get to my new start date might be kinda crazy!

I also had another mishap with some chocolate today. I think TOM is around the corner, and also just stress in general is taking it's toll. My 3 year old has been an absolute BEAR this past week. That stresses me out. I also am on pins and needles re: this whole baby thing. I hope something happens this coming week.

Anyways...I know I need to get back on track as I am so close to the 20's; I really don't want to start going in the wrong direction!

21 points of chocolate I ate tonight. I guess I won't be expecting the scale to be down tomorrow.

A new low...

Soooo close to the 20's I can just taste them...(and no, they don't taste like chocolate). Check out my stats...

I also tryed on some of my skinny'er' clothes, some fit and some were quite close. It felt great. I also have a small batch that won't fit till close to goal, and I am quite excited to where them again!

Ok off to watch BB.

Great Cardio Day

So I had a great work out at the gym today. I think I defiantly prefer cardio days. I did 30min on the bike at a level 8 and then 30min on the treadmill; walk 3min run 10min walk 3min run 5min walk 1min run 5min walk 3min so in total running, 20min! TWENTY MINUTES PEOPLE! I was quite excited and felt great. A weird thing...I run better if I bike first. I've tried running first but it just doesn't work well for me! I was sweating alot and it was fantastic. I am excited to see what the scale is tomorrow am...I am hoping in the 231's somewhere! well seeeeeeeeee

Does it do it to you too?

..the scale, does it not want to give you a constant #? Am I the only one who is on and off; searching for a constant #? Today I had everything from 230.8 to 232.2 ... weird. I keep weighing until I get the same # 2 or 3 times. Today I settled on 232.0 ya for me. But we'll see what it is tomorrow as I am fasting today and weighed my self about 1:30pm on a very empty stomach. So I'm guessing it won't be that low for tomorrow, but we'll see. I'll take it for now, even if it's just for a day.
My hubby is on days off starting tomorrow, but came home early sick today. I hope he feels better really fast. I need him in regular mode not sick mode for his days off. Plus I am hoping to go visit a friend that just had a baby (girl) last Tuesday. She's only 2.5h away and I'd love to see such a new little bubie. I'm so scarred I'll never have that again, and I don't know many people that are having kids that I could hijack and enjoy a cuddle or two.
And on another note...I turn 35 in 3months from today. YIKES! I remember in Sept (07) I had made a goal to run a marathon on my 35th b-day but then shortly after found out about my 2 herniated disks and that was out of the question. I feel so great about starting running again, but need to take it really slow. Maybe I'll look for a 5k around here....
