My New Present

Tyler helping daddy put my elliptical together

So I have been working really hard on getting fit. I walk about 2-4 miles a day, but on the days that I cant get out I still wanted to be able to workout to get to my goal weight. So I have been begging for an elliptical so I can work out all day. I think I have become really obsessed with working out, which is not like me at all. Lately I have been very motivated. So you can imagine that I was thrilled when I finally got my new present. It works so well , and I love it! I can't wait to reach my goal, and my my new machine will help me do it. So far I've lost almost 20lbs.. about a pound away. My goal is to lose abother 25-30. Which I am hoping to do in another 1-1 1/2 months.

Christmas Day

Today was so nice. Tyler didnt wake up until 8, but Emily 6 ofcourse. Santa filled the tree with tons of presents. Emily and Tyler were very good this year. Emily was dressed in her beautiful Christmas dress her Nana Delmonico bought for her. She looked so beautiful. Tyler did pretty good opening up the first few gifts, and soon got irritated because he wanted to open them. So I had to help him with the rest. Chris got some shirts, and his favorite thing..his pairing knife. I got new workout outfits, and pajamas that I have been asking for. It was such a wonderful time, and I will remember it always. It was so special to be with my family. Unfortunately Chris had to go to work, but my mom and dad were over to spend the rest of the day with me. I wish Christmas never had to end.

Christmas is Coming

I cant believe the new year is almost here. It passed by so fast. I love Christmas time, and I love the winter, except winter in Florida is nothing to brag about. It's also Chris's favorite holiday of all time. So this year I feel so lucky because Tyler is a little older and can understand it a little better, and we have Emily to share it with. I was talking to my sister today about how sad it is that it seems like we wait for Christmas to come by for such a while, and then it seems to go by so quickly. I still enjoy it. We won't be traveling this year because Chris has to work which is sad, but we are hoping to go to Pennsylvania in January. I am hoping that it will be snowing so Tyler can play in it, it would be so much fun. A few of my most memorable moments this year would have to be

Just to name a few, I hope next year is filled with happy times, and with positive people. My goals for the New year is to

Lose weight (typical, but I'm really serious about it)

Go to school

Paying off some debt

Have another baby.....lol hah totally j/k

Here are some of the cute pictures I took of Tyler and Emily for Christmas

Tyler's favorite Gift

Is that not a happy kid or what?

Being the impatient person I am, I had to give Tyler one of his Christmas presents early. His Nana actually bought it for him, and he loves it. It has become one of the best investments yet. He loves to jump all the time. Typically before his present arrived he would jump on our bed, he would say "mommy bouncy in there".. but he loved for us to hold his hands and help him, which gave us quite a work out, and was very tiring. So I knew that when he got this trampoline he wold be thrilled!! It's really nice because he can hold on to the handle and bounce himself. I couldn't wait to see his face, he was so happy!. He goes on it every morning and its good exercise for him too. I recommend this trampoline to anyone, plus it folds for easy storing.

More difficult than I thought

Losing weight always sounds so good, and easy in your head, but when you have to put your thoughts to action, it can prove to be more difficult than you imagined. This has been the case for me. I was so excited to start my goal to lose weight, and it is proving itself to be very difficult for me. I am not giving up by any means, but I have to complain about it because it helps me to continue through it. I have literally had to give up everything remotely yummy. My morning consists of a shake with a fruit, for lunch another shake with veggies, then for dinner yet another shake with finally..what I look forward to...a 3-4 oz piece of lean meat with some veggies. To someone other than I, this may not sound so bad, but because I am the pickiest eater in the world, I do not eat very many veggies at all. The only ones on the list of low glycemic veggies I eat are peas, and asparagus. So imagine eating a bowl of that twice a day everyday. I know that I will lose the weight, and thats what I have to keep telling myelf to make it. It's becoming one of the most challenging things I have to face in my life, for real....No sweets, one of my fav. things!!! It's hard, so if you ever feel down about your weight think of me, and how Ive gotten so bad that I have to come to this....I'm suffering :)

The Skinnier Me

So lately I have been extremely depressed about the way I look. I know I have made myself this way, by eating way too much junk, and not excercising enough. After giving birth to Emily I've been at my highest weight, and very unhappy. It's the worst feeling not having anything to wear, and feeling so ugly you can't bear to look at yourself. It' gone too far for me, so I am ready to lose the weight and feel better. I can't wait for the day that I can by a smaller outfit, and feel happy about the person I see. I hope that within the next two months I will be able to lose around 30lbs. I am seeing a doctor to help me, and look forward to excercising. I am going to need major support, cause I will be making big sacrafices, but know it will be worth every pound. Wish me luck

My Princess

My princess is getting bigger by the second, she is smiling so much more now, and I can't get enough of it. You cant help but smile back at her. She makes me so happy. She is such a good baby that she makes you feel that having another one wouldn't be so bad, but believe me that will not happen anytime soon, just saying. I love her!

Trip to the Museum

Ethan asked me to build this for him..LOL
This is as far as I got..ha

Working as a team

Daytona had finally opened up a Childrens Museum in the Museum of Arts and Science. On Tuesday it was FREE, and I have to say that I am GlAd that it was because although it was fun, It wasn't worth paying 13 bucks for. I feel bad for saying that because I'm sure alot of effort went into building that section, I guess it just wasnt for Tylers age. Perhaps they will be putting more things there. He did have a really good time though. He got to see skeletons, and play with all sorts of fun things. I can't wait to take him when he's a little older and we can enjoy it a little more.
