Update on father in law

OK so I just talked to my mother in law. My father in laws surgery went great! The mass they saw was a hernia which was easily repaired without opening him up! I am so relieved. We have all been so worried about this. I know God heard all of prayers!

So my Father in law had been having some stomach pains after he ate so he went to see if maybe his gallbladder was bad, well they did an ultrasound to see and the ultrasound tech said that things did not look and that there was a mass between his gallbladder and liver and that he wanted further testing. So about 2-3 weeks ago he had a CT scan done and it showed it was his gallbladder. So they scheduled him to have it removed tomorrow. Sounds simple but they said they will try to everything lapriscopic but when they take his gallbladder out and test it and if it comes back cancerous (which is their concern) then they will remove some of his liver as well and then go from there. We have prayed so hard for him. It is not his time yet!!! Brent is so worried about his dad , they are so close. Well just pray that everything is ok and that it is not cancer

week 2 down!!!

Ok so week 2 is over!! I have lost 15 lbs wow!!! I feel great about that. I have no more urges to smoke at all go me !!! My BMI is still up a little. I still need to lose 20 lbs to be at my average weight for my height, but I know I can do it. I ordered some more Jillian Michaels workout videos but these are 40 mins instead of 30 so hopefully that will burn even more calories. Its hard sometimes when everyone else is eating this yummy food and I cant have it but after I passed it up I feel good that I did. My thighs and my belly are going to be the toughest to lose, my arms and legs have always been skinnier than the rest of my body. I have chicken legs for my body. My goal is so start exercising an hour a day, 7 days a week and hopefully by summer be able to walk around in cute little shorts and maybe look good in a swimsuit. Well off to another week

Week one down!!

Ok so its been over a week now without smoking, and to reward myself I have been bleaching my teeth to make them whiter. I have also lost alomost 10 lbs. let me just say I have worked my ass off!!! I have really pushed myself. I feel so great. I have not been this energetic in a long time. I also have really bad stretch marks from when I was pregnant, although they have gotten better , I found this stuff called cosmetyn which people swear by, so you get a 21 day risk free trial after that it is 90 bucks a tube but if it works, it is cheaper than surgery. I am really trying to be more confident with myself so that I will be happier. I hope by this summer I can pull off a 2 peice :) I love these videos I have been doing, they are so tough but I like it.

A new healthier me!!!

Ok so this week has been a turn around for me. I have really let my health get away from me. I am 30 lbs over what I should be and Most of you dont know bc I hid it well. I started smoking in high school, I quit for 3 yrs when I was prego with the boys and did fine with it, well about 6 months ago when our duplex flooded and everything was just stressful I started back up. I was so mad at myself for doing so. I kept telling myself I am going to quit but never did, well last week I said you know what dont only do it for yourself, do it for your kids. I would never smoke in the car, house, or around my kids at all but I still do not want them to think it is ok. Brent smokes which has made it so much harder and alot of my family smokes as well. But since monday I have had none and each day is easier.

On a second note, I have started dieting and working out. I have really just been doing portion control and low fat and sodium foods. I have been doing the biggest winner videos by Jillian Michaels. It is by far the toughest set of videos I have ever done. By the end you are sweating and out of breath but you feel great and like you are really gettin a good work out. I have felt better this week than I have felt in a really long time. So I am very proud of myself. I think alot of people take the easy way out by doing all these pills and detox systems, but what happened to just the old fashion, healthy way. eat right and exercise. I have never been one to take any kind of diet pill or supplement bc I feel they are not the right way to go and do more harm than good, sure you look good qicker but you also gain it back quicker. thats just my opinion, I'm sure it works well for some. But I am going to be healthier and more fit for my kiddos, Ty will start sports next year and I have to be ready :)

Fun weekend!!

So this weekend has been a good one. Friday night we just stayed home but Sat. we got up played outside for a long time, the boys took a nap and then we went to my nephew casen's soccer game. It was so darn cute. I can't wait for my kids to start sports. Then they left the game with my inlaws and Brent and I went home to get ready, we just went to Outback and then to a friends to play pool, but it was really nice. We needed that so bad. Brent and I both had a hard time sleeping without the boys here but we got up early sun morning and went over to the inlaws. We stayed over there until almost 10 last night. The boys played and played until they literally could not do anymore.
Now back to our regular schedule. The time change has messed me up, we all slept untill 9 am. which teh boys are always up by 7:30. Our usual bedtime is 8 but the past 2 nights have gotten away from us and they have stayed up much later, so tonight we have to get back on track.

Catch up time

So I have been so bad about keeping up with this thing. I find myself hardly getting on the computer at all anymore. Ty and Hunter are both a handful a require alot of attention. Ty will be 3 yrs old in may and I cannot believe it. I feel like somedays he was just a baby. He is so smart and I'm not just saying that bc he is mine. He knows all his alphabet and some numbers. He says the most most random things but he is so loving, caring, and respectful.
Now Hunter on the other hand is so different. He is a wild man. He is going to deff. be more of a challenge but thats whats its all about. Hunter will be 2 in August, they have both grown so fast, I find myself in tears some days just bc I'm not ready for them to grow up but I know its gonna happen and life is gonna bring them wonderful things.
I'm trying to find something for Ty to do this summer (sports wise) but he is still a little young so I want to put him in gymnastics but brent does not. Its just something for him to do with kids his own age. Some days I think him and Hunter cant stand each other, but I know they do, they just time to themselves too.
Brent and I have been together 4 yrs in may. Everyday I love him more. I sit and watch him with the boys and think wow how did I get so lucky to have this amazing husband who is the best daddy in the world and who treats me like a princess. I think God everyday for what he has blessed me with. I think we are going on our first date in forever this weekend. Everytime we make plans something ends up cutting into them so hopefully this weekend will work out. They will be staying with my inlaws who they love so much.
Well thats about it for now ,I will try and download some pics soon.
