I keep reading all these workout challenges on Pinterest and fb. You know like the squat challenges or run everyday for 30 days, etc... Well I'm finally gonna try it.

For the most part I'm pretty good with the way I look with the exception of my top half thanks to nursing.  But I also noticed that the part of me that could use some toning is my arms (not much meat there). 

I found a 30 day challenge for push ups (I absolutely loth them)  but this one sounds like a good one. 

Now don't get confused that's not me (wink) but hopefully soon ill look something similar! 

So here goes day 1!!!!! 

Come on Annie!!! Breatheeeeeeeeeee!!!!! And GOOOOOOO!!!!

Happy sweating ;)

Ace is 1!

I totally forgot to post about Camden's 1t Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since my household is a baseball home, and Ace was born 2 days after July 4 it was only fitting to have an All-American Baseball Theme Birthday Party!

Talk about a long day!!! And in this Texas heat!!! But it was a success!!! Minus a grouchy baby after a while.

Thanks to PINTREST for helping me with ideas to assemble the BEST FIRST BIRTHDAY BASH  a lil slugger could ask for..

My sweet Family

 He was more interested in the candle

Its hot as balls and we are outside!


Pinata made by Ace's Teacher

                                   Yes I made the Score Board!!! Whoop Whoop!!! Only cost 20 to make!

Ace's Sign in Book with Pictures from every month of this first year!

Happy 1 year my sweet Ace, cant wait to see what this year brings!

a Year Later

I remember when I started showing with Ace and the weight started packing on I told my hubs that I would be in a bikini again for the next summer. He of course being an over protective husband said heck no!! Youre not showing you body.

But you know what?!?!? Ive endured

  1. 9 months of pregnancy 
  2. 6 hours of labor
  3. 1 epidural
  4. episiotomy 
  5. Count less loss of sleep
  6. Over a year of nursing
  7. Over a year of wearing nursing friendly clothing
  8. Pumping twice a day at work
  9. Smelling like maple syrup thanks to fenugreek
...and I'm sure Im missing somethings in that list but those are few I could think of off the top of my head.

So I finally did it!!! After a few months of working out and eating lots of baked and grilled chicken and fish  I wore a bikini!! and with the same confidence I have done before. Thats the key to keeping healthy. Whether your big or small, tall or short CONFIDENCE is always KEY!

Now I didnt take a picture in my swim attire, it just felt weird to do that but not gonna lie knowing that I had a baby a year ago and can still rock a two piece is something amazing!

Quick mini workout:

Jump rope for 1 minute
Rest 30 seconds
Jump rope on rt leg 30 seconds
Rest 15 seconds
Jump rope left leg 30 seconds
Rest 15 Seconds
Jump rope side to side 1 minute
Rest 30 Seconds

Repeat 3 Times  

Happy sweating :)

My testamony

Lately Ive been feeling a bit overwhelmed. 

There is so much to do and no time to do it in. 

Sometimes I wish I was a stay at home mom but then again I love working and the people I work with too.

I love being able to have my grown up time with my friends at work.

I have so much to do and yet I dont wanna do any of it!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont wanna clean the house.
I dont wanna wash the dishes.
I dont wanna fold laundry.
I dont wanna clean the bathrooms (3).
I dont wanna vacuum.
I dont wanna sweep or mop.
I dont wanna dust.
I dont wanna cook.
I dont wanna coupon.
I dont wanna take Birth Control.
I dont wanna workout.

I just wanna sit on the couch and relax. 
I wanna go to the pool and layout.
I wanna go to the beach on a whim.
I wanna eat junk food.
I wanna curl up with my husband.

But I will keep going! 
I will clean the house, So my son has a safe place to play.
I will wash the dishes to keep my sanity.
I will fold the laundry so the clothes doesnt get wrinkled.
I will clean the bathrooms cause it needs to be done.
I will vacuum the carpet cause i shed like a cat.
I will sweep and mop cause my son plays on the floor.
I will dust cause my family has allergies.
I will cook..we need to eat after all.
I will coupon cause money doesn't grow on trees.
I will take my BC cause 1 baby is enough for me
I WILL workout cause I LOVE MY BODY!
