Weight Shock

So, I am a little depressed.
I haven't really thought about weight loss in a very long time. We've just had so many things going on, that adding one more thing onto our very busy plate just had my head spinning. I weighed myself this morning and had a huge shock.
190. 190 pounds. I am 20 pounds away from my heaviest pregnancy weight. Last year, when I was my heaviest, I was 177. This year, I am 190. My goal is 150 and now, instead of 27 pounds to lose, I have 40.
Nope. This is enough. I've had it. I have a beach trip in August. I am starting to not fit in my clothes, in a bad way. I have gained 13 pounds this last year and I've had enough.
Please don't message me about any weight loss products, no shakes, no cleanses. I don't want to do any of that. I want something easy, something affordable, something I can stick to. I can't do Weight Watchers, I hate counting calories and keeping track of everything. I need ease, smaller portions, no snacking on junk, and no sodas. I need meals already made for me. I need portion control. I thought about doing NutriSystem, but I think it's a little out of my price range, so for now, I am just going to go with Lean Cuisines, at least for a couple of weeks, just to help me get started. I am going to supplement with fruits and veggies and a heart healthy breakfast. I am going to drink a gazillion cups of water. I am GOING to do this.
You know when you look at people on Biggest Loser and think, "how'd they let themselves get this big? Didn't they realize it and want to stop?" Well, I am going to be there soon, if I don't watch it.
Enough is enough.

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
