So here I am, writing about about my weight, wow I never thought I would be talking about this subject, but I am, so here I go. I was always considered too skinny, people would tell me that I was way to skinny you look so unhealthy! Now wait a min, if I ever told a heavy person that they are way to fat, that would considered rude even mean. It goes both ways. Its not as if I was doing everything in my power to be so skinny , its just the way I was , I would eat everything in sight just to gain weight. Even after my first two kids, I was still really skinny, so after my daughter Sophia who is my second child, I weighed 115lbs. I am 5'7; so my goal was to weigh 125lbs I figured I would eat fatty foods but still eat healthy I started going to the gym to put some muscle on. I thought it was a good idea until I never saw 125lbs all of a sudden I was 135lbs. and it never stopped going up from there, I had my third child, um lets just say I am heavier now then when I was at 9 months pregnant with him..what in the world happened? So here is my theory...It all turned around when I turned 21, what changed I was able to drink alcohol, now don't get me wrong that thing called your metabolism it stopped, so here I am eating whatever I wanted drinking a margarita whenever I wanted, not thinking about gaining weight, I mean who thinks about that when your eating a wounderful meal and enjoying yourself with your friends and family, I was always like bring it on, appetizers, seconds please, dessert of course are you kidding me, and keep the cocktails coming. Now 165lbs later I going what happened? How did I gain all this weight? Its has to be baby fat. But my youngest son is two now, and not only did I not loose the baby fat, I gained 30lbs. over the past two years. So instead of complaining to my husband anymore I have decided to get a grip, take a deep breath, and do something about it. So what did I do? I went back to the gym, but this time to shed some pounds, get tone, feel good ,feel sexy, and live life to the fullest. I changed, not what I eat but how much I eat, I love food, I cut down on when and how often I drink alcohol, I still enjoy it all just in moderation. I go to the gym five days a week, I started taking a spin class two days a week, cardio and weight on the other three days, it feels so good. With my kids I had them cut down on their T.V watching and had them get more active. I feel it the whole family is on board its easier for me to stay on track. I also do Zumba at home, and Jaden my two year old does it with me, he's so cute if I don't put the video on he will start it for me, he's my little workout partner at home. So I'm hoping I will be where I want to be in one year.So that's my goal. I will be blogging about my status every day starting Monday 26,2010.Please feel free to post your thoughts, good or bad. I will be posting the good, the bad, and the ugly. What I ate for the day, what workout I did, or if I just sat on the couch and ate bond bonds. So wish me luck:) And if anyone wants to join in on the fun, lets get fit for ourselves.

So my family and I went to Loon Lake over the weekend.What a trip, it was so beautiful,so peaceful.The weather was perfect, and the water was warm.My kids had a blast.My youngest who is '19 months old; got so dirty within the first 5min of arriving at our campsite; head to toe covered in dirt with a big smile on his face: that was so priceless. Then there is the princess of the house my '6 year old daughter who is more of a tom boy then a girlygirl,and is right with her brother getting as filthy as she possibly can, and yes she accomplished it.Its camping,so its their only chance to get as dirty as they can.I'm a bit of a clean freak with my kids.So when we go camping I go a little crazy. If there were showers, I would not have cared as much, But my husband managed to get a campsite without showers; even tho I told him there better be a shower,he said they were only 5min away!But to my surprise when we arrived they turned out to be 45min away. So I threw them in the lake. But we did have lovely volt toilets!That had to be the high light of our trip, our campsite got a lovely aroma filtering threw it a few times a day. Nothing beats that smell during a meal.
My husbands parents joined us as well as his brother who is '10 years old his sister, her husband, their 2 year old son, And two of our close friends.We had a good time. Our husbands played games all day while the wife's took care of the kids, cooked, and kept the campsite picked up. Come to think of it; we did pretty much what we do when were home.But yet my husband calls it a vacation.
We had a good time, had great food, and great conversations.We sat around the campfire at night, just laughed, and had some cocktails, while the kids roasted marshmallow's.My oldest son who is '12 likes to conversant with the adults, however I find it quite funny he's starting to act as if he is to cool to play with the other kids.He tries to joke around with us, we can't help but laugh because his jokes are so far from being funny, but yet so funny all at the same time.He's so cute.
Even tho camping is allot of work for the women, it's so worth it. Our kids had a blast; it was a great way to bond with my in laws.I do have great in laws, I adore them. They are a great example of how an amazing marriage should be, lots of love, and affection. Great communication, lots of laughing, and trust.
So take your family camping, but make sure you have shower's and flushing toilet's.

So how does a women with three kids and a husband not go bonkers? Well face it there is no way out of it.I'm a stay at home mom. Trying to have a min of me time does not happen I can't even go to the bathroom without one of the kids walking in, or my husband saying what are you doing,Umm... the last time I checked there are only a hand full of things I could be doing in the bathroom.what does it matter, why ask Unless I've been in the bathroom for more then an hour which never happens then start to worry..Can't a women poop in peace or take a shower and shave her legs once a week okay once a month? I mean I don't walk in when my husband is going to the bathroom, Unless he can't find the toilet paper..Help! And the kids pounding on the door crying as if I left them forever..That alone makes me bonkers...
