{Here We Go Again}

If you've been following me for a while, you know that for a long while now, Gaige has been struggling in school. He has this defiant attitude when it comes to his teachers and I'm not sure where it's coming from. But all the meetings and trying to find ways to motivate him to do anything finally came to a head on Thursday.

{I Feel So Accomplished!}

Don't you love it when you feel like you actually got something done over the weekend? It has been cold and gross here for so long I've just felt like a bump on a log. I didn't want to do anything, especially clean, because it felt like someone was constantly tracking something in.


But this weekend the high was in the 60's all weekend! So I finally managed to get some things done I've been putting off.

{So Thankful I'm Not Single}

This thought is coming on the heels of a dream I had the other night. In this dream, which could also be classified as a nightmare, I was dating a guy who was not my husband. I have zero idea who he actually was but that's not important. I'm not sure if we were meeting his family for the first time or what, but what I do know is that I had a kid with me. I want to say it was Owen, but I'm not positive. What was completely weird was that we were on this island, in the middle of nowhere. I guess that is kind of the definition of an island though right? lol Anyway all of the sudden this guy says he has no interest in dating me, that's right, while we're with his family. Oh but it gets weirder. I'm packing up our stuff to go and the driver he has to take us away, left and got rid of all of our stuff. This is the part of the dream where I break down and start freaking out. I just keep screaming I knew she would do this to me! It was completely...weird. I have no idea where it came from.

{ #weightwatchers Update!}

To be completely and totally honest, I haven't been tracking like I should be. And I know that's why I'm not losing quite as fast as I should be.

But I'm happy to report that the last weigh in (Monday), I had actually lost a pound. Which puts me at 213. I haven't been this low in a while so I'm pretty proud of myself.

I have really just been walking on the treadmill and making sure to watch what I eat. I try to stay away from a lot of carbs, but still allow me to have them.

I refuse to deprive myself of everything I love to eat because I want to lose weight. Besides, it's not realistic for me to cut out a whole bunch of foods. I'm just not allowing myself to over indulge in them.

So that's basically the update. Nothing exciting. I just thought I'd go ahead and update anyone who might be wondering how I'm doing.

{Our First Valentines Day}

Oh boy. I'm pretty sure I've never told this story before, so I thought I would :) If I have, I can't find it in my archives lol.

Mine and D's first valentines day together was less that romantic. It was less than valentines day. It was awful. I'm still annoyed with him about to be honest.

{10 DIY Valentines!}

I don't know about you, but there is something so special about making your own valentines. I used to love bringing out the construction paper and making them for my aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. These days everything is ready made..so boring! So I thought I'd find some cute valentine DIY's to put you in the creative spirit! If you make any of these be sure to tag me on twitter, instagram, or facebook so I can see!

{Working Out In Front of People}

I don't know about anyone else, but I hate working out in front of people. Hate.

Not only do the kids stand around and want to watch me and make stupid comments. But D does too. No one can just let me workout without making some joke. When we had the Kinect I used to do the Biggest Loser workouts (which I loved), but having D stand around and watch on his days off, put me off of it completely.

I mean, I'm already self conscious about my body. I have all kinds of things flopping around that used to not flop, and I don't need someone standing around watching it happen, ya know? If I wanted an audience I would go take a class somewhere.

The only exercise I can get through with someone else in the room is the treadmill. And that's just because I can turn on a movie on my laptop or put in my head phones and listen to music. I can tune them out. But working out to a video is impossible when someone else is around.

Ugh! Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this way.

I just needed to vent a little bit.
