My goodness. A post about my vices. This is going to be fun (and humbling). 

Anyway, here is some context.

 In the past 3 years Hubby & I have been trying to get healthy. He lost 30 lbs in the 1st year and has kept it off and I have gained about 10. I'm guessing you can probably tell how the whole endeavor is going for me. 

Honestly, I have no idea what my problem is. I want to get focused and really into health and fitness, but I am so unsuccessful. In the past year especially I have been so unmotivated! I compromise in the smallest of places and that has ballooned into a lifestyle of not eating right or being active. I am the heaviest that I have ever been in my life. (Well, I was about 10 pounds heavier at 9 months prego with my oldest daughter, but lets face it, that just makes things feel a thousand times worse.)

 So.... what have been my vices? 

My addiction is real. I mean.... I don't have more than 1 in a day, but I think about it a lot. LOL. I just don't give in. 

Maybe I would benefit from one of these "Coca-Cola Cone of Shame" type things?

Pixar reference!




(sorry, had to post it)

I lived in the Atlanta area for almost 10 years so I became very fond of Coke. YUM! It's been a hard Love to walk away from.

Food is important to me. Like.... REALLY IMPORTANT. 


YEAH... I am guessing this has been a reaction from many who have witnessed my "Hangryness" (that's not even a word).

"Vegging" on my phone/laptop. 
(a bit more accurate than I'd like to admit)

Staying indoors too much. 

Why?! I mean it's beautiful outside! I should soak it in. Alas, I find myself as more of a homebody now than ever before. Just give me a book, my cats and chai tea or coffee and I NEVER will leave. 

Not utilizing the gym as much as I should. 
(Ugh.... I need to get on that.)

Yeah, I know. It's the typical stuff, but it's discouraging. I really need to get it together.

So... what are your vices?

Fun weekends!

Last weekend our church went on a trip and experienced some pretty stellar sights! We traveled to Kentucky for the 2nd time to visit the Creation Museum
It is just so amazing!! 

When we visited in May of 2014 my girls were so much smaller!  (Elena on the left was almost 7)
(Here is Allee with my father in law. She was about 1 and 1/2 yrs old)
Here we are in 2004
Here we are this weekend!
They also hadn't started construction on their new exhibit The Ark Encounter. It opened last year and we finally got to see it! WOWZA! It was incredible!
The BEST part was that my father in law always flies up to WV to be with us on these trips! Here are a few pictures of our trip! I posted a ton of Snaps too. Too bad they don't last longer than 24 hours. 
We took 38 people from our church!
I was in the fun bus. These were the most active and excited little girls. 
Allee stayed with her grandpa the WHOLE trip. They were two peas in a pod.
My main squeeze with a new little friend. The penguin looks like …

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her

I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

Week 11 Day 1

This morning I woke up after having Allee keep me up for almost 2 hours during the night. Needless to say I was completely exhausted this morning.

I lacked motivation to get to the gym. Instead of leaving with my gym clothes on to take Elena to school I just drove her in my PJs. Yep. Was totally too lazy to even get dressed.

I finally did come back home and got dressed, but honestly, what was I thinking?! Allee was awake which meant I didn't leave until 9:00 a.m.

Its ok, I wound up having a great workout anyway. My video from after it is below.
