  • Hey all! Definitely live the "next day I'm all better" .. minds are nuts 🤣😭💃 So glad to read everyone's updates, I've been so lax in my updates: I'm afloat, baby's clean and healthy, he's joined soccer and happy, I've got my zumba and surviving work. The bug got me the other day... that bug that draws the line in the sand…
  • As for my update! Doing great on working out every night! Not so great in getting my hours in at work....but I've got time. We got on the smart tech bandwagon and now have buds, and getting smart watches tomorrow.... better be worth it ha. Hoping to transfer activity logging to the watch and hr even... and then the buds…
  • @TMHoy sugar is as addicting as crack..... I find if I am not drinking as much water, snacking n eating proactively (and balanced) and even sleep/stress can all push me to grab more than I would normally. ... and then That spirals till I'm back up to "too much" My mom is 70 and emotion eats up the wazoo! My sister is…
  • @SwtHedgehog when I get into those kinds of "funks", I find it better to just keep my head down and tunnel vision- forcefully stop my brain from thinking beyond the today, and just do tasks or goals for each day that get done and every second of that day I'm telling myself "no. Just think about now, today". One step in…
  • @Gold6767 chin up and keep on going! It happens but don't let that stop you from moving forward!! I got new ear buds for working out, expensive ones, and I can't wait to workout now Haha. I did house things all weekend as my workout and today I've gotta cook and work but I'm hoping I'll still make 7pm workout. I'm not sure…
  • Ello m'darlin people! I've survived!! It was one heck of a 3 or whatever weeks vacation. The baby cut two teeth and now crawls on all 4 totally. She's a champ. Didn't work enough or workout or play enough cards with my mom but overall visiting was a success! Got tons of photos. And my sinus issues blew into a cold right…
  • Hello everyone!! Welcome to the show! As I type this the baby stirs and I registered the time so can't stay but welcome!!! If I survive this week I'll let you know 😭😢🤣 (Traveling T-20hrs away and nowhere near as packed or as many work tasks done as needed..... 💃💃 I got sleep though! Finally...sort of...). Man these post…
  • @SuzanneC1l9zz fabulous! I am totally getting what you are saying!!! It's incredible isn't it!? So glad you're doing great and staying strong. It's amazing what exercise, and rest, can do! The fruit smoothie thing hasn't happened but the juicer is a wiz! Takes a pineapple to make 3 cups but it's a loverly 3 cups lol.…
  • @brightsideofpink welcome!! Inspirational despite your setback! My dream is to lose that much weight but while I have come a long way with habit (totally agree on that front! Do it not to eat), I'm unfortunately "too" good at maintaining.... I'm quite good at fluctuations staying exactly wherever I am ha. Post baby it was…
  • Hey all! So great to see all the progress and insight!! We have finally made it into May! We officially finished her medicine, and it's so surreal... I'm trying to hold it together with work being hectic, the house never clean and an active baby. Plus frustrating marital life (men. Ugh lol). And while I started trying…
  • Hi all! I can't imagine getting 35 fruit n veggies in a week 😆🤔 I need to make a list and count how many we do... Ripe fruit in smoothies! Yogurt n fruit! Add protein powder if needed. The baby is eating more food so I'm trying to branch out for her. We have lentils that I finally made her, it's a hit, and we are usually…
  • Hi guys. Can't read the latest but hope you all are doin yer best! Stay with it! Stay strong stay fabulous!! Hichair? Check. Tons of other things at various stores? Check. Check. Jazzercise is here and we moved her play area to the side so now I have a nice, tiled, space in front of the TV which makes it that much easier…
  • @tinybry It's great finally seeing family! Happy for you!! The jazzercise tape and our stimulus check arrived last night! However, I've got mastitis now so that's been fun.... @SuzanneC1l9zz hope your salmon turned out! That's one fish I've sadly never gotten into.... artichokes n tofu too ha, though he'll do them likely.…
  • Hey all. Good luck on the interviews!! Hope something is snagged soon🤗🤗 I can't get into using a garmin.. I'm too old school I guess😆😆🤔.... but I did get a pulse heart monitor that seems pretty good. It's a pain to get the band to register my heart beat sometimes but meh. It works Haha. I found out that the gym down the…
  • Think it's one of those weeks! I know I had a heck of a week myself!... Baby is doing better, I'm doing better, schedule not so much, and my stomach of a rabbit hole also not so great. Sunshine and cooking makes for a good time though. Going to be conquering the house this weekend, including laundry. Hoping for a…
  • @Gold6767 having enough water, nutrition and a positive forward thinking attitude.... https://youtu.be/xWI_J3-2Nzg This is the best, most hilarious, motivational video you could ever watch. You are Welcome 🤣🤣🤣 This guy is hilarious, but also. His material is spot on.... we are indeed better than where we started-as babies,…

  • Hey all! Happy Easter to those who celebrate 🤗 It's the weekend but I've got work half of it *sigh* Great to hear from you guys! Yea, I got my weight to drop by eating balanced calories (1800) and working out including cardio such as elliptical running and zumba....I was doing an hr every other day or more, burning 600…
  • @ChristianaU92 welcome! Sounds like you are indeed on a roll! Bravo! KUDOS! and knock'em dead. The calories that is. I was 180 in 5th grade. I got up to 223 in Jr Yr (16 yrs old) and got down to 192 ish and hit 189 once in 2019...after baby I am now at 226 😭😭 I literally can't imagine hitting 180, and I was in shock…
  • Some days are just hard. I had pessimistic weekend of sorts, but I had a great sleep and organized one of our closets that was driving me nuts. We also were able to get out for a nice walk, which helped a lot. Here's to the last week of March!!.....🥳🥳💃💃💃🍻
  • Hi guys! I was doing well then crashed and been super tired these last two days.... I got Zumba on the Nintendo Switch, and Zumba2 on the Wii, And even YouTube has some good zumba! https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlMqZTLiBTY7C8761pNGloO8Ym2jKbbJL Here's a playlist of songs alongside some Zumba videos: if you can access…
  • @ClearNotCloudyMind , I think it's my tea and multivitamins 😆 and fresh air. And a positive outward disposition ... I also don't usually end up writing on days my PPD has me good...... so that helps lol. Some people think exercise is work and get tired from it, and while my lazy side agrees, I'm one of those folk who end…
