My Baby is NOT a Baby Anymore....

Today Jim decided the yard needed to be cleaned up...Yes in this cold weather! So Jim and the boys cleaned up all the sticks in the yard and then Jim got on the lawnmower and started mowing well so I thought. Jim made a few rounds then I saw this....

Is he really old enough for this??? I guess so he will be 10 in how they grow! Jim of course was thrilled now he has some help mowing. I might add he did a really great job being his first time to ever get on the lawnmower. When he finished he ran in and said momma that was so fun! I just hope it stays fun for him cause it looks like he is gonna be helping alot!

My New Venture....

So I always get on these kicks about losing weight and exercising. Well I have finally committed myself to a weight loss program and as some of you might have seen my picture is in the paper every week showing what I lose week to week. On my first weigh-in I lost 7lbs and now I am on my second week. I have to weigh-in and get measured every Tuesday. I thought about posting my before picture but it was way to bad. Maybe after I am through with the diet I will get the nerve to post the before and after pictures.

So the diet I am embarking on is called Ideal Protein Weigh Loss Program.

Ideal Protein is a line of protein diet products developed by Dr Tran Tien, Chanh, a general practitioner and a doctor of nutrition, sports medicine and biology. Dr Tran Tien, Chanh has focused his career and research on nutrition, with a particular emphasis on the treatment of obesity and overweight.

This diet is hard I wont lie! Hard! But going into the second week I have found is a little easier. The hardest part for me so far is snacking. I am used to snacking throughout the day (which I know is bad) and with this diet you can not do that.

I call Roberta (which is my diet consultant) all the time and say will a small piece of chocolate hurt me and I give her a heart attack. She is great and is always there when you have any questions. Which helps tremendously! She definitely keeps me in of today I have yet to cheat and for me that's great cause I am a sweet addict and you can't have any! YES I SAID IT YOU CAN NOT HAVE SWEETS!

Oh and the other bad part I have to eat VEGGIES! I know I know Flo can you imagine me eating veggies. Well I do but I pretty much live off of raw broccoli and cucumber. But hey its better that not eating veggies at all! I will keep everyone updated on my progress!

Week One

Lost 7lbs and I can't remember exactly but it was over 5 inches between my waist, chest, arm, hips & thighs.

Drum Roll Please............

So the house is finally put back together after lots of painting, cleaning, dusting, and chaos! It was a dissaster to go through all of that and it feels so good to actually be back in a clean house. No dust all over everything you walk by and you can actually walk in here without getting dirty feet...that in itself is worth a million bucks!

So without futher ado...
