O:FA Week 1 (late)

I was supposed to update 4 or so days ago, but, I didn't. It's going okay I suppose. I've had fast food once in the past week, but that is usually all the more I have fast food. More like once every two weeks. I really need to just cut it out completely. I realized this even more after reading this post over at momdot.com. I haven't had any soda, so that is good. That is really to be expected though, because we actually don't buy any soda to keep in the house. I just have it once in a while, usually while getting the fast food! My big downfall is the late night snack, I've tried, and I don't think it's possible to cut it all the way out. However, I have been trying to eat a lower portion, and a little earlier. NOT easy when hubby is in the next seat over scarffing ruffles and french onion dip and still managing to look trim as ever...

That picture is actually from last summer, but you get the point. He still looks like that underneath his clothes, I promise! (minus the tan)
So, all in all, I have not lost any weight in the past week and a half, I have not gained any either. These next two weeks will be a true test, and then I think I will enter myself in some spinning classes :)

Operation: Fat Ass

I've decided to join Amanda on her quest of Operation: Fat Ass. For my height of 5'7" I am not overweight. I just am not comfortable with myself. Two short years ago I weighed 120 lbs. and that is my goal. I know I can do it. I'm not even going to try for my pre-pregnancies weight. Getting to 120 is already 20 lbs that I will have to lose! So, basically I need to cut my bad calories OUT. No soda, junk food, fast food, and probably less coffee too....or at least less coconut creamer :) I need to work out more too. I have an exersize ball that gave me abs of steel once upon a time, so I will get on that every night and try to hit the treadmill a couple times a week. Running outside would not be easy for me around here with all the snow we currently have! I can't believe I'm even sharing what I currently weigh, but since I mentioned it above anyway, here it is! Like my socks?! I will check in weekly on progress or no progress, probably on Thursdays.

Not me Monday

As started by Mckmama at My Charming Kids :)

I did not bribe my son with a stick of gum this morning just to make him get dressed, because he definitely was not more interested in his lego collection then getting dressed and going to school.

I did not buy The Elf on the Shelf from Hallmark just to return it two days later, because two days after purchasing it I received a 40% off coupon from Hallmark for the Elf on the Shelf. I did not then proceed to tell my son that Frosty (the name given to the elf) had to stay and help Santa a little longer so that I could get to the Hallmark on the other side of town and use my new coupon!

I did not get frustrated and yell at my husband last night when he was hanging up Christmas lights because they were not JUST how I wanted them. Then I did not feel bad after and apologize when he fixed it all for my liking.

I did not skip my shower this morning with intentions on hopefully getting one in this afternoon while the kids are napping because I wanted to take a few extra minutes to create this post before leaving to run some errands and pick my son up from school.

Science Time Tuesday!

We started going a little stir crazy today. School was canceled yesterday(due to the load of snow we've gotten), and Ryan only has pre-school 3 days a week. Today was his off day and he was BORED, and really wanted to go to school. We ran some errands, came home and decided to do a little experiment...

THIS is what happens when you mix corn starch and water (and food coloring) together!

It really is very cool. You can pick it up and form it into a ball and then let is oooooooozzzzeee
back into the dish. So it shows the difference between liquid and solid and how it is possible for something to turn from a solid to a liquid. Ryan is still playing with this as I type!

(HOWEVER, we have learned the hard way that you do not really need the food coloring. Actually, I don't recommend it at all, because now Ryan and I have blue hands!! LOL)
