The middle photo showed up in my timehop, so happy #TBT - proof that having kids does not ruin your body. I would say I've gotten more motivated to get in shape after each one of my children. The first picture was the first time I tried to lose weight, for my wedding, and I used Jenny Craig to drop 50 pounds. The second was the moment I first lost 100 pounds after Madison, and the third was today - 14 months after Aiden. I don't need a perfect body to keep myself motivated, I just need to see progress, somewhere, and I'm a FIRM believer that everyone should be taking progress pictures! Make the time, it's worth it. Funny, thinking about it, I certainly eat more with each progressive picture. Jenny Craig was very low calorie, the second time I was eating on average 1400-1500 daily and now I eat around 2,000. The difference is I learned more effective workouts as I went.
Oliver went to have lunch yesterday at school with Madison, you would of thought the president was coming to town the way she went on and on about it for dayssssss. Seriously, how cute are they in their selfie!
She's pretty upset with me right now, she was invited to a school friends birthday party, a slumber party to be exact, and I don't feel right letting her spend the night when I don't know the family. Oliver told her the same thing, but all she hears is Mommy is saying no. I tried to explain the best I could, but she's 6 and doesn't understand. I tried to compromise and tell her she can go and stay late and we will come get her before bedtime. Yesterday she told me 'Mama I talked to Makenna and she said her family is actually very nice' God Lord, I can only imagine what she said to the girl. I said 'Madison I have no doubt they are very nice, but we just don't know them, sorry'
This growing up business is getting tricky.
The perfect predinner snack, low fat and low carb - delish. The hour between me getting home, feeding the kids, and making dinner is rough. I have a hard time not snacking, I legit think I might die some days. After a chocolate chip banana muffin incident I had to find something that fit my macros a bit better.
My hair has never ever been this healthy, it's crazy soft! I just started using Argan Oil and I'm highly impressed, it's not heavy or even super oily. It's a struggle to not put it all over my body, heaven in a bottle.
