Busy & Chunky not me

OK, I have been super busy. Not only did I pull off the worlds fastest move but I've been posting on my other blog daily. My friend Jessica posted the challenge of 30 Questions in 30 Days so that's been keeping me busy over there.
But alas, I can not stay away much longer, I must ramble on & on about my wee people whom I love but lately are making me feel somewhat loony.
I really oughta have grace for them ya know cuz their little lives have been turned around some, although they are adjusting well they are getting used to some different stuff. Like cable for example. We haven't had anything other than regular TV for years....YEARS. And now my kids are a little overwhelmed at all the choices. And honestly it's a trap for me because I can get a lot done parking them in front of the set. So I need to be disciplined with television as well & it's kinda hard. I like The Cake Boss =)
But anyway, what's new? The wee-munchkin is cutting a tooth, I think. She's really outta sorts & her gums look like their gettin ready to pop some teeth through. This being my 4th little animal you'd think I'd know by now but I'm always second guessing myself, oh well. Other than that she's still my Chunky McChunkster~that's what The Hubby calls her :-)
The Monkey is gettin a little...ummm...odd. She's been testing Mommy's boundaries & giving me a run for my money. I'm not likin' it but I know it's normal & I have to guide my little animal without losing it myself.
As for My Bear~she's my little ray of light right now =>
Making me so happy. She's trying so hard in school & doing so well. I just ordered some Math to do with her & I can't wait to give it a go!!
My Cow's homecoming is this Friday!! I can't believe it! She's growing up so fast & so beautiful! I will most definitely post pics of my gorgeous girl.
The Hubby is currently passed out on the recliner~my baby works so hard & I miss him so much.
And last but not least...ME. I have decided to......GULP....lose weight. ACH! There I said it, bleck...ech ech...UGH. Now, why am I choking over here?? Because you see I said it to the Blogosphere & now YOU KNOW. I can't go back.
I'm hoping you'll help & comment asking me some questions or just basically keep me accountable a bit. I plan on keeping you updated so lets see how this goes.
Oh & here's my goal 30 lbs by February 19th, Angies Sweet Sixteen party. I'm starting on November 1st & even added one of those little tickers on my blog, really~scroll down...see?? I plan on getting a fancy scale this weekend too that includes ounces so I can know every little bit I lose. Lets see how this goes!
Please keep me accountable! I need all the help I can get!! Thanks~


  1. I'll do it with you sister! I was planning on starting Nov 1st too :)

    Feb 19th is my brother's wedding so that is an excellent goal date for me as well!

    What's your plan for accomplishing this?

    As for me, right now I am starting to cut out junk food and candy. Starting Nov 1st I will begin counting my calories. I'll start with 2000 calories and within a week of two will try to be down to 1500. I lost 35 pounds a few years ago doing this and exercising (mostly walking on treadmill). I'll add exercise too once I get the calorie situation under control. I'm gonna give myself two weeks to wean myself off my food addiction and on Nov 15 (the day I return to work!) I will start the 1500 calories and will exercise for 30 minutes 3x a week.

    Boy, bet you didn't expect all that! Glad you posted and wanted accountability cause I do too!

    Love you girl!

  2. Hey!! This is awesome! I'm so happy to have a partner!
    Anyway, I planned on posting my plan in a few days but I'll fill ya in some. I will go back to what works for me, drinking water exclusively & LOTS OF IT! Eating small meals throughout the day to ward off hunger, portion control, & having a cut off time when to stop eating. I'll add exercising in a few weeks as well.
    On another note, I'm so excited about your blog! I know you had talked about starting one~so cool!
    Love ya too Mama!!
