It's been a while since I've updated, so I figured I should.. There is lots going on. But I guess I'll start out with my new work-out routine. I am very excited about it (today was the first day though).. Kevin bought me Hip Hop Abs! I am so excited.. I have been wanting it for a long time, and almost bought it one time, but then found out I was pregnant... haha... So yeah, no more babies anytime soon (though baby fever gets to me from time to time), so I'm ready to work out and gain back control over what I've lost (or gained...).
I had Kevin measure me everywhere and record it on their handy chart. I weighed myself and in 2 weeks, I will be measuring and weighing again.. I am excited, but anxious.. I HAVE to stick to this, because if I don't now, then I never will... This is my chance. Looking at the pictures Kevin took of me (for record purposes), I am bigger than I thought I was.. It's sad actually, but it's more motivation. Maybe in another post, I will share my measurements and weight. I will definitely update you in 2 weeks to see where I'm at with things.
Anyway, on to other things... Kevin is at his new job now.. and he got a raise the very first day! He's getting 5k more each year, and working 4 hours less each day! So he goes into work at 9 and gets off at 2! I love having him home early. He still gets more time with Leala, and we get the stability of an outside job... and we still get his disability money and his side work he does for SEO. :) Here's to the beginning of paying off debt!
Leala is 13 months old today. I can't believe how fast she is growing up! I think she might already be starting her terrible two fits... sometimes.. Anyway, I'm not sure if I mentioned it or not, but she's walking! She has taken 35 steps at a time, so I think she's doing pretty well! She tends to walk more when we are somewhere else other than home, but I figure that's normal.. She knows that she can crawl here, so she tends to try to do that... But she's getting better at it. I'm so proud of her!!
Oh, and I've begun meal planning and making more meals at home (though the meals might not be considered meals to some people.. haha.. hush, I'm just beginning!). I've also decided that I am only drinking water at home (with the exception of milk and the occasional orange juice and coffee).
I have some pictures from the past few weeks I thought I'd share. :) Enjoy!
