I lost 2 lbs!!!

FINALLY !! I have been eating as healthy as humanly possible (in my eyes atleast) and I finally weighed myself in at 131.? (forgot that last part.) It's such a huge motivation for me to see pounds shedding. I want so bad to put that bathing suit on and take a picture but I know it will just disappoint me, so I'll just wait. I have decided that tonight I will start using my 3lb weights. I will also start some sit ups.

On another note: Jon-Erik started to finally use his book !! I could never get my little man to actually look at a book without trying to rip the pages. He points out the cats. dogs, and balls. He's such an amazing little boy. I'm so blessed. =]

Busy Bee

Everything has been going really well. I have gone walking every single night and eating as healthy as possible. It's not easy being healthy when your husband is a fast food junkie!! I am thinking about getting a new scale since according to my current scale, eating healthy and working out has made me gain 2 lbs.

highschool came back to haunt me..

Graduation day was probably my favorite part of highschool. Granted I made some amazing friends and experienced so much but some things I will never forget. I had this one best friend who I knew since I was in pre-k. As soon as highschool started, she decided to tell some people private business of my family. It ended up going around my whole school and I was mortified. Instead of being the bigger person and finding a good resolution to a horrible problem, I added fuel to the fire and spread the nastiest "rumor" about her. Anyway, in the end, we ended up not being friends. Years later, we came into contact and I figured we were civil. The other day, I went to go send her a message on facebook and found out she unfriended me? I don't understand why she would do that? I was only 15 when I spread the rumor. I'm 22 now!! She didn't tell me why she unfriended me, but that is the only reason I could think of. When I added her again, she denied my request! I don't understand why some people can't let things go.

While I'm on my little rant, I might as well write about another problem I'm having. There is another friend of mine who I've been friends with since middle school. She is the sweetest, most caring person I have ever known, hands down. I love her so much and was even going to make her the godmother of my son! When I moved back to New Jersey, she never came around. When I finially bumped into her one day, she told me how she was pregnant and I was so happy for her! Last time I saw her, she was 4 1/2 months along. We were sitting and talking and I told her that she didn't even look pregnant! I said that if anything she looks like she has a little beer gut (I was drinking a beer hence the comparison) I thought I was complimenting her until she just got up and walked away. Was she seriously mad at me?! I ran after her and apologised and kept trying to explain myself on how I didn't mean to offend her and that I just chose the wrong example! All I was trying to say was how tiny she was and how awesome that is! I know with my next child, I hope I don't gain too much weight. Anyway, we hugged and I thought we made up until she told someone to keep me away from her. We haven't talked since. I messaged her on facebook once asking if she was mad at me and she said no. A few weeks later she didn't even show up at Jon-Eriks 1st birthday!

I'm so sick of drama. I just wish people didn't have to hold grudges. In a way, I understand my one friend from highschool but not the other. What upsets me even more is that she is such a nice person! She would never do anything to hurt anyone in any way and she won't even talk to me!! Ok, vent over.

..about will power..

I have none. Maybe not none, but pretty close to it. I did so good all day (except my chicken fingers the beach!) My husband and I took JE to the beach today and walked back and forth on the boardwalk, stopping in every single arcade so JE could run around. On the way home, we stopped at Wawa and I got myself a smoothie instead of a milkshake. When we got home I left to go food shopping right away and went straight to the track to walk a mile right after I dropped off groceries. While I was gone, my husband ordered pizza. I caved. I ate a slice!

Sick on the first day

Well, yesterday wasn't a good start to my diet. I woke up so sick ! I didn't eat breakfast for fear of not keeping it down. For lunch, I had whole wheat pasta with tunafish. At dinner I got some steamed chicken with broccoli. I couldn't even finish my dinner and was out cold by 8 PM. I woke up 7:30 this morning!

Today I'm planning on doing much better! I am going to walk everywhere I need to go today and put my ab roller back to good use. =]

Start of a new beginning

What a better way to start a new blog than with a new challange?! I decided to join the "Fit by Labor Day" challenge and I'm psyched!! Before I start, let me explain a little about myself, and my family.

My name is Brittany. I'm a 22 year younge mother to a 1 year old amazing little boy, Jon-Erik. My husband, who is not legally my husband, is the most amazing father I could have asked for. Before I got pregnant I was pretty insecure about my body and I now look back and realize how stupid I was to feel so bad about myself! I was hott!!
Height: 5'4"
Current Weight: 133.4 lbs.
Weight Goal: 125 lbs.
How do I plan to do this you ask?!
First off, it helps that my husband is going to Alabama on August 1st to get a job set up and our house ready to move in to for 2 months. While he is gone, I will not have a car. Normally, this would bother me, but not anymore. I view this as a great opportunity to walk everywhere I need to go!! I also bought an ab roller and a yoga mat. If anyone reading this knows of a great yoga workout, PLEASE COMMENT AND LET ME KNOW!
Well, if you would like me to follow your blog and support you, let me know!
Thank you for reading! Please keep coming back !!
