The only way to quit is cold turkey!

My post



Today is the day. It is the day I force my son to quit the pacifier aka "binky" cold turkey.

His last tooth (besides his 2 year molars) has come through this week so his teething days are pretty much over.  Now he just uses the binky as pure addiction and I am sick…

NOT using tradition as an excuse to NOT change anymore!

My post



I have found that there have been many times in my past and present that I use the excuse of "tradition" to dictate my daily life.  This is something that I am desperately trying to change while entering in to my life of positive…

50 days after Stage 2 interStim Implant!

My post



It has been 50 days since my stage 2 InterStim surgery and today something really weird happened. Not bad but weird.

I have turned it up quite a bit over the past 50 days and it has been at a consistent 4.0 for about 2 weeks now.  I could feel…

Exercise today seemed to make my InterStim act up a little!

My post



Today's work out consisted of 20 minutes of jogging in place, 6 times running up and down the stairs to the basement and my updated plank position 3 times. I had some issues with my InsterStim a few hours later with some muscle cramping and am now wondering if I maybe over did it a bit. I felt so…

Keeping the mind busy can equal more weight loss!

My post



I don't agree with only 3 meals per day, as you already know.  I am a big fan of 4-6 small meals a day.  It all depends on your situation.  I can eat about 6 small meals a day because I am a stay at home Mom.  If someone has a job all day long…

Kids are too cute when they do things for the first time!

My post



  I gave my daughter permission to take some pictures with the camera and did not watch her taking pictures.  I am kind of glad I didn't because it made me laugh when I put the memory stick in the computer.  I usually just go through and delete her pictures but I had to keep some of these this time.  This… Continue

The first time your child gives you a kiss on purpose, is great!

My post



I just had to share my awesome 16 month old giving me kisses!  This is the best thing ever!  The feeling is so amazing the first time your child actually gives you kisses on purpose.  This started earlier in the day and he kept doing it all day long!  So much fun!…

Video of me doing plank position with added changes

My post



I don't want to re-upload the video, it takes forever so you will have to click on my post to see it!


I have been raving about plank position on here for awhile and have decided to change it up (make it more difficult) to speed up my results.  I had my 4 1/2 year old take a video of… Continue

Kids are so unpredictable, they are lucky they are cute!

My post



Have you read the book Everybody Poops?  If  you haven't you should check it out, it is cute and so true! 

I think that there should also be a book called, "Ever Kid Poops in the Bathtub!"  It does not matter how hard you try every child has got to get their parents with this one.  My daughter when…

Trying to work out with something trying to keep me down!

My post



Today's work out consisted of 30 minutes of jogging in front of the TV while watching "my child survived" 30 arm rows with 10 pounds of dumbbells in each  hand, 30 presses over my head with the same weights, plank position for 2 minutes. 

I would have done more but have had a lot of…

Mommies have crystal balls!

My post



Over the holidays I had my daughter convinced that Mommy has a crystal ball and I lend it to Santa for a couple weeks so he can check to see if she is being nice or not.  She has not forgot about this and it has been so funny.

I am tired of pacifiers!

My post



I looked and looked and looked for 2-3 days for the 2 missing binkies around the house.  I pulled out the sofa and love seat and everything daily.  It was frustrating.  This boy of mine loses binkies at a drop of the hat.  I don't want to take him off his binky until all his teeth come in and I don't want to have to buy…
