Daddy Day

He's wrestles with you, he screams with you, he laughs with you, he shares with you, he watches Handy Manny with you, he lets you be all boy, he loves you so very much. He is a wonderful daddy and I couldn't ask for a better partner to take this ride with. We love you Daddy!
*AND....even though I know my Dad doesn't read this blog, Happy Father's Day. I LOVE YOU!!!! I hate that I couldn't call and tell you this, dang cell phones!

A Little Fun

As you can tell if you visit even a little is that I changed up the blog design. I would love to customize one with some Charly Bling but for now I will go with the free and cute chicks. It fits....
I found this on a create*loves; a blog that I've been hearting for a few days....there are so many creative people out there. It is amazing! Hopefully some of it will rub off on me. I've been lazy in the creative department lately. So is life...
Anyways, 10 questions! Enjoy.

1. When do you feel happiest?
Traveling with my little family. Rather it be driving to Freddy's to buy some custard or driving to OKC to visit is always fun to be with them and enjoy each other....all together! I'm also pretty happy when I get to be me....reading, shopping at a fun boutique or painting my toenails a crazy color.

2. How do you take care of yourself?
Read the last sentence in #1. Brady is pretty good about giving me "ME" time, so I jump at those opportunities.

3. Are you internally (by yourself) or externally (by others) motivated?
Both. I can pump myself up to do something but I also love to be inspired by others. Blogs, movies, friends, magazines, etc.

4. What do you do for fun?
*Paint my nails
*Walk around Target!
*Look at crazy creative blogs by women that just amaze me!
*When I have time I love to craft....I need to start doing that again.

5. What intimidates you?
Driving when someone I know is following me. Exercising in front of people. Sticking with WW. Motherhood when I am dead tired.

6. What is something you're proud of?
My little family and all that we are. I love US so much. We have our issues, but we have gone through a lot and are still together!

7. Finish this sentence. I never _____________.
have stuck with WW this long....I really don't want to give up now!
8. Favorite vacation spot.
Still to this day, I loved my trip with my grandparents and cousin to Colorado my senior year. I know that my little family will travel much more in our future, so ask that question in a few years.

9. Today is a (rate from 1 - 10).
8. Nothing bad, some good. I am healthy, my family is healthy, life is good.

10. Finish this sentence. If you knew me really well you'd know_____________.
...that I LOVE ice, that I move my toes when I'm watching TV, that I love to makes lists, that I could watch Sex in the City a million times, that I call my hubby-honey a lot, I want to be a children's photographer, I need curtains for my house, I knew I was having a little boy before we found out, I'm a pen snob AND I love doing crap like this!

Life of a Momma

It's been a crazy month on the momma front. We took Case off the bottle AND we are putting him to his own bed. We have had some crying, but so far so good. As I'm typing this the crying is coming to a halt and he will soon be in dreamland. We are also exploring the wonderful world of non-baby food. I love that he can now eat what we eat but it helps if he would actually eat it! I pray that him being picky does not last long. He is also exploring, testing and becoming more and more independent. Within two days we had a busted lip, goose egg on the head and smashed hand from the car door. God help me....

I know people told me motherhood....parenthood was going to be hard, but oh my. It is a job. A job that I LOVE but it is tough sometimes. The other night Case dropped a sippy cup on my little toe and it hurt like hell. For some reason I just started crying and it took awhile to stop. He sat there and laughed at me like I was being funny and not like I was really a mommy losing her marbles. It was just one of those nights when all I could do was cry. I called over a friend and she helped out for a bit....thank you by the way a million times over.

So yeah, it's hard, but worth every minute. Like tonight when we watched Glee and danced to the songs. He loves music. Or when we went out and I pushed him in his swing. His smile and laugh being contagious. He is a wonderful, awesome little boy. It's just that every once in a while mommy needs to lose her marbles....she always picks them up though.

Catching up...

Ok, so I don't think I'll be a failure if I don't post my food for EVERY DAY! I write it down in my tracker, but I think I'll cut myself some slack in the "must post every day" area.
I'm skipping Monday. Here is a glimpse of what it involved....

*cream cheese
*McDonald's and I didn't eat salad!

Here is today...

oatmeal: 2pts
canned, unsweetened peaches: 1 pt
brown sugar splenda: 1pt
diet cranberry juice: 0pt

small apple: 1pt
WW string cheese: 1pt

Subway:ham/turkey on wheat with cheese and lots of veggies, sweet onion dressing: 7pts
*I didn't get the meal deal with chips, that has never happened before.


square of chocolate cake: 3pts

baked cheetos: 3pts

egg white substitute: 1pt
2pc Canadian bacon: 1pt
1/2 a pack of WW shredded cheese: 1pt
2pc of 45 cal. bread: 1pt
salsa: 0pt

Dessert: Tasted like chocolate covered strawberries...yum!
strawberries: 1pt
60 cal. sugar free chocolate pudding: 1pt

After Case went to bed dessert :(
Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich: 2pt

I used all 25 points and only went over 2. This would be great if I hadn't used all my extra 35 points this past weekend and then some!

I heart Kansas City Part II

Take me to your food!
Now let's talk about how I did on the WW front....let's just say what happens on vacation (even though it was just the weekend) should stay on vacation. I only wish! The calories you eat rather it be in Vegas or Mexico come back with you and it can get pretty ugly. What I'm trying to get to here is that I went WAY OVER my points and then some.
I only had one....oh yeah, add a few points to the list, I forgot to count it!

Here is the truth of the matter....

2 pc. 45 cal bread: 1pt
1 TB pb: 3 pt
banana: 2 pt
bites of Brady's Breakfast: 4 pts
nuts & dried fruit mix: 3 pts

Lunch: California Pizza Kitchen
4 pcs of mushroom THIN crust: 7 pts

I love pizza

3 pc. of chocolate bar: 4pts

Dinner: Some burger joint in Crown Plaza
Cheeseburger: 8pts
Fries: 6 pts

Dessert: Sheridans Custard
Mint Chocolate Shake: 18pts
*Add all of that up and you get a whopping -31 points! Folks, I only get 25 points a day and 35 points extra for the week. You do the math!

Leftover pc. of mushroom pizza: 3 pts

Lunch: Winslow's BBQ
French Fries (they were soooo good!): 10pts
BBQ Beef Sandwich: 11pts
I think I committed a BBQ no-no...I dipped my food in ketchup!
*Ok, I was not a fan of the BBQ. They used a dry rub and I don't know if that is how all KC BBQ is, but I wasn't impressed. I like juicy, smothered in juices and sauce brisket. But did I mention the fries were YUMMY!
Snack: Like I needed one!
WW cookie: 1 pt
Dinner: Back in Wichita and wanted Taco Pronto
2 tacos: 6pts
1 tostado: 5pts
tortilla chips: 3 pts
guacamole (I made it): 4 pts

Again.....add them up and you get -18 points! I thought I did ok the first day other then the cheeseburger/fries and ice cream, but did I really need Taco Pronto Sunday night. I try to rationalize my eating and it's just not working for me. I need to realize that just one taco ends up being 2 tacos and a tostada. Having a bad day (Monday) and eating crap for dinner is not an excuse. Bad habits for me create bad habits for Case.
Case likes french fries a little too much.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed being in KC very much. I even scouted out other restaurants I want to try next time, but I also know next time I will plan a little better for the grub. Next time.....

I heart Kansas City Part I

Brady said I looked like a little girl in a candy store. This was his response to my face when I stepped foot onto the Plaza in KC. I don't "look" like I belong on the Plaza, I don't have the "money" to belong on the plaza, but oh, how I love the Plaza and all it's spoils. The one place I begged to go was the lovely Anthropologie! If I could have a shopping spree in any store (Target doesn't count), I would spend it all in Anthro. I only spent $10 there this time but my eyes soaked up every bit of prettiness.

If only.....

We also went to Paper Source....oh my! Again, lovely. I just wanted to touch all the paper and call it my own. We went to a few other stores, but these by far topped my favorites!
They had cupcake stationary!
By the end of the day, my little trio was pooped out. We ventured into Crown Center and had dinner (which I will talk about here in a bit).
My adorable hubby!

Crown Center was nothing special, but our hotel view of KC was wonderful! Next time we go, I know we will venture out more then we did, but hopefully next time we will be more well rested.
Case loved looking out our hotel window!

Sunday brought us to the Farmer's Market. It was a chilly mid-morning, so a brisk walk through did it for me. My favorite part was the Italian deli. Oh, the meats and cheeses were calling my name. I would've taste tested all of it! We ended up eating at a little BBQ place because I was told you can't visit KC and not eat BBQ! So we did.
Would like to go back here in the summer!

I love this little guy!
It was a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I loved spending it with my boys. Now let's talk about the food....

Good Day

Today was a good day. This weekend may not be....Brady is taking Case and I to Kansas City for Mother's Day. I'm so excited just to get out of town! I'm still going to track and all, but I can't guarantee that I will be on my best WW behavior. I'll update once I get home.

2 pc. 45 calorie bread-1pt

Day Seven: Weigh in

I weighed in today. I lost 2.2 lbs! I wanted it to be a little more, but I wasn't "super good" this week. Plus I did zero exercise. So, I will take 2.2lbs. The most exciting thing about losing 2.2lbs is that I am finally in the 180's!!!! I don't know when I was there last....
Even though I wasn't so good today, after weigh in of course, I still decided to write everything down. Usually day seven in my tracker is blank.
We are going to Kansas City this weekend and anytime one (ME!) travels, it is always a high points event. We will see....

Kashi Cereal Bar: 2pts
apple sauce-one snack pack: 1pt

Lunch: Picnic at work...Thanks Wendy for the grub! Yum.
hot dog: 5pts
hot dog bun: 3pts
cole slaw: 4pts
pasta salad: 4pts
baked beans: 5pts
1 cookie: 3pts
1 brownie: 5pts
2 bites of watermelon: 0pts

1 pack of Ritz bits pb: 3pts

Burrito (leftovers): 9pts
tortilla chips: 3pts

WW dessert: 3pts
*These are really good. They are the cookie dough sundae WW dessert. Nice to eat every once in awhile especially when craving a little something sweet, but I don't need to make a habit of buying these all the time.

And as usual this week, I used all 25 daily points and let's just double my points for the day....I used all 25 plus 25 over!!!!! Crazy.

Tomorrow, tomorrow, there is always tomorrow!

Day Six: Working at it...

So yesterday I posted Day Six which should be Day Five and today will be Day Seven but I'm posting about Day Six. Did you get that?
You would think as long as I've been on this WW journey (since 10/13/09) that I would have this all down, oh but I don't! I make choices that after I write them down, I think, WHY did you do that? So, even though I've been on WW for awhile now, I'm still working at it. Still trying to figure it out. I am definitely a work in progress!
Oh yeah, I weigh in today!!!!

2 pc 45 cal bread: 1pt
banana: 2pt
1 TB peanut butter: 3pt

Baked Cheetos: 3 pts

Lunch: (OK, seriously....14pts for my lunch, something has to change!)
Bowl of beans: 3 pts
1 pc bread: 1 pt
turkey: 2 pts
1 pc. cheese: 2 pts
2 pc. bacon: 3 pts

sm amount of chipotle ranch: 2 pts

Burrito Casserole:
Refried Beans: 2pts
onion/tomato: 0pts
tortilla: 3pts
cheese: 4pts
SKINNY COW (I think I had been putting Laughing Cow!) Ice Cream: 2pt

Used all 25 points plus 9 more. This put me 10 points over my 35 points for the week!

Day Six: Case's Fault?

No. It's not the little man's fault. It was my mind thinking I NEEDED bites of his cake or bites of his donut. Goodness, I need to feed my kid better! But it was his birthday right?
So I went 8. If your counting, I've used all 35 extra points this week, plus one AND the week isn't over. I will say, this week in tracking is going much better then usual. By this time in the past I am 35 points over my extra 35 points.

Next....I need to tackle exercise!

2 pc. 45 cal bread-1pt
small amount of egg white substitute-1pt
1/2 portion of WW individual bag's of shredded cheese-1pt
1 pc. Canadian bacon-1pt
diet juice-0pt

7 pc. chocolate rice cakes

1/2 BLT (no mayo)-8pts
6 skinny fries-3pts
smaller amount then yesterday of chiptole ranch-2pts
3 small bites of cake-3

1 pc. of pizzeria cheese/mushroom pizza-6pts
1/2 donut-3 pts
WW dessert-3pts
*Let me explain: I thought if I bought a WW dessert to eat while Case was eating his birthday donut, then I wouldn't want can laugh now because seriously...I should've known better. ***

I used all 25 points plus 8 more. This means today I really need to stay within my points. Stay tuned....

My Baby Boy

One year ago today I gave birth to a beautiful, perfect baby boy. That day was hard but the end result was a joy to hold in my arms for the first time. I knew then what I know now....I was in love. He has brought so much to my life. I love watching him think. I love watching him walk. I love watching him play. I love when he cuddles. I love watching him sleep. I love listening to him laugh. I love my little man and I will forever and ever. Happy Birthday Case Killian! Then


Day Four: Choices

I bought a meal ticket to our cafeteria. They have a yummy salad bar. They also have other yummy food that should not be on my plate. Yesterday my plate was attacked with too much food. It wasn't necessarily the choices I made but the amount I ate. Also, I'm not very good at this points figuring. I think I usually go way over or way under how many points something should be. I need to work on that one.

2 slices 45 calorie bread-1pt
1 TB peanut butter-3pt

granola bar-2pt

1/2 chicken breast-2pt
chipotle ranch dressing *need to make better decision next time*-4pt
2 pc cantaloupe-1pt
cup of berry captain crunch (dry)-3pt

chicken breast-3pt
sweet potato with butter-4pt

Laughing Cow Ice Cream Sandwich-2pt

I used all 25 points and then some....8 extra.

Monday, May 3, 2010

Day Three: I heart Avacados

Did not stay within my points, but that was because of a lovely tasting avocado. AND I am ok with that! I had a pretty calm day....don't get me started on how my night went. Case doesn't understand that momma needs her beauty sleep.

banana-2 pts
2 slice 45 calorie bread-1pt
reduce fat peanut butter-3pt
*I love PB, but hate how many points it cost me.*

2 slice 45 calorie bread-1pt
1 slice 2% cheese-1pt
3 thin slices deli ham-3 pt
dill pickle-0pt
baked Cheetos-3pt

Laughing Cow Ice Cream Sandwich (YUM!)-2pts
*I was going to do the no desserts for a week thing, but desserts are my happy food, desserts are my thing. I figured if I deprived myself for a whole week that at the end I would just binge on every sweet snack I could find. So instead I have bought some "diet" desserts and will munch on them when I see fit.*

Dinner: *I need to put this in a recipe builder but until then these are the points I came up with...*
olive oil-1pt
1 avocado-8pts
*Worth every point!!!!*
Laughing Cow Ice Cream Sandwich-2pts

Used all 25 points....went 8 over.

Day 2: Resisting Sam

I did pretty well today considering I went to Sam's Club. It's like every time you turn the corner you are hit with some sort of bite size goody. I did eat a piece of Angus burger, a piece of turkey/cheese on a wheat thin and a couple of drinks of Mexican Coke (the beverage, not the drug). All in all it was a good day. I need to find a breakfast food that fills me up but that is not too many points.... Any suggestions?

1 1/2 Kashi Cereal Bar: 3 pts
Diet Cranberry Juice: 0 pts

1 1/2 grilled cheese (regular bread, 2% cheese): 6 pts
*****The 1/2 of Kashi bar and 1/2 grilled cheese is because Case didn't eat all of his....I need to get out of the habit of eating his other half!*****
3 dill pickles: 0 pts
chocolate pudding cup: 2pts

Bite size goodies at Sam's: 4 pts

3 Pork Ribs: 6pts
2 sliced tomatoes: 0 pts
Green Giant Cauliflower with Cheese: 1 pt

Annies Honey Bunny Grahams 10pc.: 3 pt

I used all 25 of my points for the day AND drum roll please.....DID NOT GO OVER! I haven't done that in a long time.

Day One: Dang Corn Nuggets

Today I have been fighting off stress eating, boredom eating and "I think I'm starving" eating. The only time I gave in was at the cafeteria and those lunch ladies had made Corn Nuggets. If you don't know what they are, well they are pretty much deep fried sweet cream corn. They are good is what they are...I had six! I looked up the points value and all I could find to compare them to was Church's Chicken Regular Size Sweet Corn Nuggets........14 POINTS!!!!!
So there you have it, I ate something that created me to go way over my points but I will use my "extra" points for today and start again tomorrow. That's what I like about WW is that I always have tomorrow to pick myself up and that is what I will do!

Kashi Strawberry Cereal Bar-2 pts
Banana-2 pts
sm. glass Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry Juice-0 pts

1/2 Croissant-3 pts
1/2 c. tuna salad-7 pts
salad (lettuce, radish, tomato, cucumber, peas)-0 pts
balsamic vinaigrette (sm. amount)-0 pts
3 pc. pickled okra-0 pts
6 pc. corn nuggets (see above!)-14 pts
1 c. cantaloupe, pineapple, honeydew-1 pt

Small Boneless Pork Chop-5 pts
broccoli and cauliflower (steamed)- 0 pts
1 packet of WW shredded cheese- 2 pts
1 no sugar added apple sauce snack cup- 1 pt

I "get" 25 points a day and I used.....37 points.

Getting Back on the Wagon

I fell and I fell hard. Actually, I did fall out of the desk chair here at home, but that is just due to my clumsiness, not my Weight Watcher journey. Ok, back to the wagon. When I get busy, when I get stressed I eat! Even when I am sick, unless REALLY SICK, I eat like it is going out of style. So these past two weeks and then some days before that, I have been eating. Yes, eating is a good thing to stay alive and all, but I have been overeating, not tracking my points and just running amuck with food. I'm very good at excuses to eat. I had a good hair I saw a baby My son had his first birthday This is one of the last night's I'm "splurging" (this was last night). You get the picture.

Today I weigh in. Today I see that magic number that is going to shock me into getting back on the program. Tracking, counting points, exercising. This works for me. I have Victoria Secret underoos that I couldn't wear before October to prove that this works for me.

Here is my challenge to myself and for any others that care. I WILL post everyday for a week (to start off with) my food intake for the day. I will start tomorrow, after weigh-in. I feel like this will keep me honest, it will hold me accountable and maybe just maybe help in my effort to climb back on the wagon.

To Do

My to do list for the weekend:
  1. Sweep out the garage.
  2. Organize garage.
  3. Pick up all the random bits and pieces of debris in our yard.....left behind by the construction crew, family before us, etc. (That includes doggie poop.)
  4. Clean bathroom, sweep & mop floor, vacuum floor.
  5. Go through Case's clothes. This boy is growing!
  6. Go to Michael's or Hobby Lobby to look for 1st Birthday stuff AND to only buy 1st Birthday stuff and not everything else my little hands want to grab!
  7. WALK!
  9. Hopefully grocery shop on Sunday with a list of meals for the week.
  10. Give girls (dogs) much needed bath and clip their nails. Shhhh....don't let them see this or they will head for the hills.
  11. Enjoy my weekend with my boys!

Just Doing It!

Case and I went for a walk this evening at Sedgwick County Park....great park! I walked, he strolled. It was nice, it was breezy, it was light, it was fun. I need more of this, more movement. I didn't break a heavy sweat, but I didn't just stroll either.
As I was walking I started passing people running, ok, they passed me, but you know what I mean. I noticed they would pass another person in the opposite direction and give each other a high five and say, "One more, we can do it." One runner even said, "I love you, one more." I smiled at that same runner as she passed me. She yelled back at me, "That girl I just passed got me into this mess!"I told her to keep it up, it was pretty inspiring. And it was. Running has never been something I have liked to do. It has never been something I've been good at. Back in my softball days, I HATED when we had to run. HATED. In July 2009 my friend, Wendy and I joined a boot camp. Oy! I had to run. Shin splints galore. I just don't run.... I don't plan on starting to run or train for a 5K or anything like that, but I do want to be more active. I'm not going to lose the weight I want to lose by just tracking points, I need to move! That girl who yelled out to me, she wasn't a "skinny" girl, she wasn't a girl I would imagine running. But she was running. Maybe one day I will be able to run, but for now walking will do. I can go pretty fast with that Chico Stroller in front of me and hey, Case enjoys it as well.

Wednesday, March 31, 2010


I've been thinking a lot lately about how I can change my life to be a more positive with the good, out with the bad. I also need to be a more productive person. I also need to think before I act. I also need to turn off the green eyed monster and be thankful for what I have. I also need to be a little bit more thrifty.
These are things I really want to work on in the next few months. Maybe it is because Spring is here and that means fresh starts. Maybe it is just because I feel like I need to be a better person, a better me. Whatever it is, I'm ready.

Sick of Being Sick

Week before I was to start back to work, Brady got the stomach bug. We thought it was just bad fish from Long John's, but was the stomach bug. It took a few days and then I got the bug. I thought it was the margarita's I had the night before, but tequila does not do THAT to my tummy. Tequila is much nicer. Thank god Case never was sick. Case had never been sick in his whole 10 months.

Ha....we spoke to soon! Two weeks pass and Case wakes up with a cough and a fever one morning. AND it doesn't go away. I can now write down in his baby book that he was sick. Sick he was....RSV for a good seven days and we find out today that he has an ear infection! Oh yeah, Brady and I have the respiratory virus as well. Oh the joy!

We shipped the boy off to Oklahoma now for the second time so that we can get better and so we don't "infect" him again. It has not been a fun few weeks. I've said this before, I'm a girl of routine. My routine hadn't even gotten routine and it gets tipped upside down, sideways and turned in circles. mean that's what parenthood is like? Yeah, I kind of knew that, but I still enjoy my routine every once in awhile.

Here is a picture of Case before the bug bit him.....

Turning Circles

Life is funny. We turn circles sometimes and it lands us right where we thought we didn't want to be. But in the end, it puts us in the place we need to be. Reader's Digest version....We moved back to Oklahoma, my hometown. We worked, we played, we lived with my parents, we loved, we fought, we grew. Opportunities came about and brought us back to where we just left off 7 months before. It's been a journey but something I needed.
I haven't wrote on this blog since August 1st of last year. Not only have we moved away and moved back but we have grew and lost. Case has grew to a healthy 25lbs and god only knows how tall he is. (I often forget numbers, so I never know how tall or how much my son weighs, this is by no means a sign of a bad momma.) He is growing like a weed. Already walking and walking and sometimes running! We have recently experienced RSV and that has not been fun. I love this little man more then I could've ever imagined. He is a BIG part of making my world go round.
I on the other hand have not grown in that sense, but I have lost. So far on Weight Watchers, I have lost 25lbs. I started October 13th and so far, so good. I wish it was more, but I will take it. I have been struggling since we moved back, but I don't have my "routine" down yet. I will get there. It is a journey I DO NOT WANT TO QUIT! I hope to hit a big goal of mine on my 30th birthday in July. I will keep you posted.
Another new thing I am trying is posting my link to this blog on Facebook. Before only a few people knew about my little blog. I am now making it accessible to everyone. Now whether they look at it is a different story.
So much has happened since August that I don't want to bore everyone or just that one person reading this. Let's just say Life Happened. I am ready for this new chapter in our lives and I pray that it is a wonderful, adventurous, grown-up, spirited, silly, loving journey.
Keep in touch, who wouldn't want to know about my favorite flavor of cupcake or crazy craft project I'm creating or words my son spoke. It will be fun....I promise.
