Well, if there is even anyone following me here :)
I have news.
I am nearly 7 weeks pregnant.
Exciting news!
And makes for some change in plans.
I am still planning on getting the bike trainer
so I can ride at home and my husband can use it too.
That may be our Christmas present :)

Excited and determined to have a healthy pregnancy.
Due date July 11 2011

Bike Ride and Playground Workout

I rode over 4 miles and did my first Playground Workout. It went well and I nearly got sick.


Beautiful ride and I look forward to getting down there again....hopefully it will be cooler. Mother Nature needs to get her butt in gear...
it is Fall as of today!!! :)

I have no idea how many visitors I get,
but I have made some changes.
The heading there did say
"Goings on at the Reducing Salon".
Well, I have put my gym membership on hold for now.
I think it is time for something different.
I always feel so self-conscious about how I look,
how my body jiggles and all those things.

I will now be doing it at home!

This is not me giving up though.
On Wednesday I am going to go buy a bike....
a pink and white (super cute) bike.

I will use it pulling Charlie's Trailer and
we will be OUT.
Outside at parks, together and exercising !!
I am so excited about it!!

I will also be buying something like this for the days that I cannot make it out to ride.
Rain or freezing cold and snow that will be coming soon.
I can use it while I watch TV.

I do see a sore bum in my future....
but I also see a smaller,
healthier me in the future!

My Nutrisystem dinner last night

This was pretty tasty!!
It is freeze dried, I believe.
This is before I added boiling water to the little tray
and then let sit for 3 minutes.

I have some Mrs. Dash Chipotle seasoning on it and some pepper sauce.
This is not the recommend kind of bread...but that is all we have right now.

It was really good.

Tomatoes and cucumber along with it.....chipotle seasoning (good stuff)
The cucumbers give a great crunch and are tasty.

Look at that......yum~O!

I told Chip yesterday that I knew what I want to
myself with once I reach my goal weight of 190 - 170.
That is at least 65 pounds to lose
That is a lot!
Anyway, I grew up in Southern California on the coast.
Ventura nice.
As a family we spent a lot of time at the beach.
Lots of my family surfed....
my Dad AND my Mom.
Grandpa, my brother, my youngest sister and cousins.
I have always wanted to but I am far too chicken of the water.
And now living in Central Arkansas....I know it won't happen.
But the last few years there has been a re-surfaced trend of Paddle Boarding,
and I hear that surfers hate them hahaha.
Well, watching them this summer at the Beach House I suddenly realized
"I can totally do that!!"
There are so many lakes less than a 1/2 a mile away from my house.
I don't need waves I can just paddle around.....
and how much fun would that be.
And I think it would freak people out here.
I have to do it!!
I want to do that SO BAD!!!!

So there is my incentive!

Now to lose 65 pounds.
If I lost 4 pound a week than it would be 16 weeks....
November 12.
Right before Winter, great!
Well I better continue with my Low-carb diet and keep the ball rolling...
I want that Paddle Board!!

So, that little thing here off to the side...
the trash bag.
See it?
Yeah I am working on this.
I am starting today.
I have collected some books that we never read
and I am going to Hastings Books
and see if they will buy some back...
get some money for them :).Also, I am turning my eyes AWAY from the Yard Sale
at our new neighbor's home.
I don't need more junk.
There is a book called
"Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?"
But, I do think it will be good for me to
unload this house clutter
along with my
Body Clutter
(I love this book...FlyLady. Love it!!)

Then I will be cleaning out the
kid's toy box and donate
the toys that they NEVER play with.
I may work on the collecting it from the
hidden little places during the week
and then do the
get ridding part
on Saturdays.
This will feel SO GOOD!!
