Really Mom?

My days can be very long sometimes. Often by the end of the day my mind is a gooey mess, like melting jello. Green melting jello. At least that's how I envision it. This leads to a lot of misspoken words.

The other night I was driving my kids home from a youth event. The car behind me had very bright lights. I think they were those new halogen lights or something. I looked in my rear view mirror and felt like I was staring into the sun. Which lead to this conversation;
Me: Those brights are light!!!
My son: What?
Me(with confidence): Those brights are light, I can't see!!!
My son: Did you REALLY get a full scholarship to college? Sometimes I kinda find that hard to believe.  

Sometimes that's hard for me to believe too. At one point in my life I was extremely smart, or so I was told. Now, I find that my vocabulary is lacking, my memory is failing and I feel like my brain is on Dial-up. So please forgive me if you pass me in the mall and I look at you like I don't know who you are then friend you on facebook the same day. I probably couldn't locate you after my brain finally put all the pieces together.

Does anyone else feel like they slowly started to loose their mind after having kids? I'm not talking about going mad, more like losing brain cells. Then it kinda snowballs as you approach your mid-thirties right? Or is that just me?

Weight Loss Challenge: Week SEVEN update (LATE POST)

I did weigh in on Friday and guess what? I stayed the same for the second week in a row. This week I think I will really need to push myself to see a loss. I have about 24 more pounds to go to meet my goal which means I need to lose about 3 pounds a week from here on out. I have decided to step things up a bit in order to push through my plateau. Here is what I am going to do 1.LOG EVERYTHING EVERY DAY. I have been a little lax on this. I will be sure to track every little bite so I can more accurately assess how I am doing and what I need to change next week.
2.STEP IT UP A NOTCH. I have been active but I have been doing pretty leisurely walks. I will jog at least 2 times this week and add one more intense activity. I am thinking dancing or Zumba.

3.ADD MORE DAILY ACTIVITY. What I mean by this is that in addition to actually working out I will take every opportunity to be more active in my daily life. I can walk to the store that is less than a mile from my house when I need to get a gal…

Merry Christmas: Journey to milfhoods weight loss Challenge Finale

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a great time with family and friends.

Today was the big day all the girls in this challenge were working towards. It has been great having people to do this with. It was the motivation i needed.

My ultimate goal is to lose 33 lbs! I will be at me goal weight if i lose this much. Did i lose 33 lbs????????????????? Nope! But you knew that right.

I did lose 10 pounds for Christmas. I am pretty happy about that! I am going to keep going. Right now  I am just trying to maintain through New Years. Then set a new short term goal. 10 pounds at a time seems to Work well for me!!

Here is a before was actually a week or two into my challenge.

After to follow. I took one but it is at work...i got busy on Christmas eve and forgot to email it to myself. Oops.

Enjoy your loved ones a little more today.

It's a "Do the best you can with what you got!" kind of Christmas!!

I have been a very bad girl this year and have not posted in weeks!!! I will post Christmas day for my big "Journey to Milfhood's weight-loss challenge" reveal with a before and after photo. You can find out on Tuesday if I meet my goal or not.

Life continues to be cRaZy but good. I am blessed to be in one piece, to have my gorgeous sons and to have a job that is sometimes hectic but always fun and rewarding.

Chris asked for a BIG ticket item this year....a LAPTOP. At first he wanted an ipad but then he decided a good laptop, with windows 8 of course, would be better so he could use it for homework as well as gaming. This would put a pretty big dent in my Christmas budget!!I do not charge things for Christmas. I figure if I cannot pay cash for it, I cannot afford it. I started this at about 25 because I did not want to be $40,000 in debt like many in the baby boomer generation. It works well for me because it also helps me prioritize and budget well for the holidays.
