My personal goal

Losing weight after baby number 2 is so much harder plus all the extra skin (yay!). I am setting a goal for myself to lose my last 6 pounds before my birthday November 16th. About a month ago I started eating really healthy and I lost 10 pounds, but then started eating all that junk again (ugh!). Luckily I didn't gain it back, but still! I have been working out a lot at the gym. I am stuck at home this week because the babes have been sick so they cant go in the gym daycare and I also have had a cold. I've been doing a lot of running on the treadmill and I'm starting to add the x-bike cycle class into my routine. I wish I had a personal trainer to show me way more machines there but I don't right now. (MAYBE... a birthday present... Sean.....) My biggest downfall with eating is 7oclock, 8oclock, 9oclock, 10oclock. lol I love me some sweets at those hours.

First, I am going to start with switching all my drinks to water. I rarely drink soda or juice but whenever I go out to eat.. i'll get a water instead. I realllllly need to start drinking a lot more water especially because I am still breastfeeding Kenzie. I also need to re-do my recipes with healthier, less-fattening meals.

I am currently at 150 lbs. Before I got pregnant with Aubree I was 144 and I lost all that weight and when I got pregnant with Kenzie I was exactly 144 again. My first goal is to get back down to 144. Then set my next goal for 135. It's going to be super tough for me. I LOVE candy, sweets, fruit snacks, coke slurpees.

I am going to continue to update as I go along!

Dinner tonight is a healthy soup! Lots of veggies, beans, chicken :) mmmm!

Fun stay-at-home-mama!

Over the past few days I have really been trying to look into ways to be a fun stay at home mom. Miss Aubree is a very busy child and needs more fun things to do. She is super tired of her toys (yes, I have rotated them). I want to incorporate a story time in the day, craft time, outside play, etc.

Yesterday I grabbed some leaves from outside and we put the leaf under the paper and crayon-ed it onto the paper. Well, I did all the work but she enjoyed coloring all over the paper and asking mommy to draw things like stars, hearts, triangles, diamonds, mamas car (lol).

Today I am about to make some playdoh! I like that its homemade (cheaper) and if she were to eat it she'd be fine!

I would loveeee some more ideas for projects to do! I also want to do some sort of shape sorting. She LOVES shapes! I also want to start teaching her colors, she knows the color purple very well lol. Everything is purple to her.

Thank you! I plan on blogging more! :)

How far along? 38 Weeks
Total weight gain: 31 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Maternity jeans. I wear lots of pre pregnancy tank tops and gaucho pants, leggings, and skirts :)
Stretch marks? nothing yet (eeeeee!)
Sleep: Not so amazing anymore! Right now I cant sleep because i'm sick or its because you pee a thousand times at night, or you just cant get comfortable with a bowling ball on your belly.
Best moment this week: I went swimming at my grandparents this past weekend and it was very relaxing and nice!

Miss Anything? Having my body to myself!!! I want a margarita... I want to be able to breathe... I'd prefer to have no more heartburn :) Movement: Yep.. she is not nearly as active as miss Aubree was. (yaaaay)

Symptoms: tired :)
Belly Button in or out? Definitely OUT!! I have one of those pop out belly buttons that shows through all my shirts lol. ugh! I want my innie back lol!
Wedding rings on or off? I can still wear it but I haven't been. It gets uncomfortable by the end of the day.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I would say both :)
Looking forward to: meeting my baby love! I cant wait to hold her and kiss her! I wanna know what she looks like.. I am beyond excited to meet her :)

Baby Items I want!

So I basically have everything for my new baby girl! I have way TOO many clothes and I can make all the accessories!
So here is my list of things that I am going to buy and a few things I really want and hope I will end up buying lol!
I don't know why but I am such a planner and like to have things organized and planned out, that's why we have this post :)
First thing:
InStep Safari Tandem Jogging Stroller
So happy that this isn't side by side because I would only use it for walks. This one I can use for everywhere! Love!
InStep Safari Tandem Jogger
Next thing:
Beco Gemini Baby Carrier
This has such amazing reviews and it can hold children forever basically. This would be nice to carry Aubree sometimes when I can't use a stroller lol. But, I want one so I can lug baby #2 around easier.
Product Photo
Last thing:
Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Diaper Bag
I LOVE how big this is and that you can wear it as a backpack!
Obviously I am trying to find a used one because I don't want to spend 180$ on a diaper bag... so Ebay is my friend :)
I will cross them off my list as I go!
Feel free to DONATE to my wants :)
<3 Whitney

Appointment this morning
