How to lose 10 pounds in 30 days! (or how NOT to.)


In 31 days we leave for our cruise and I have YET to lose those 10 pounds I said I was going to. I was literally Google-ing yesterday for ideas (while Kyle sat there, shaking his head.) HAHA How sad. I have this pudge I can't get rid of. OF COURSE it would just KILL me to spend another day in the gym, running.
BUT....don't you worry! 

I have a plan...

-I've started watching carefully what I eat. I have started using my Fitness-pal App on my phone again! I have a max of 1200 Calories per day, and yesterday I was pushing it...but I did it!
Today should be easier....I swear I have will power. (I've lost 30 pounds since January)

-I WILL be going to the gym today. It's not bad once I'm there. I even start to enjoy my workout.
It's just those moments before I think of how badly I don't want to be there.

-I'm going to start sleeping at a normal hour. 1 AM is not an appropriate bedtime for somebody trying to do the almost impossible.

-I have a jug I carry around filled with water. It holds 8 glasses of water in it. AT LEAST 3 of those per day.

- five minute ab work outs every night. It's not going to get tight by itself!

Hopefully I can tone and create a Miracle!

Moving on....
Kyle must have thought he was in trouble or something, because when I came home yesterday the lawn was mowed, the dishes were done, the house was vacuumed, laundry done, bathroom clean, kitchen clean, and everything looked nice and tidy. So sweet of him, but he sure wore himself out! He was awake for about 3 hours after I got home, then slept the rest of the night! lol

Today I'm working, but when I get off I think we might go to the pool for an hour or so. We need TANS!


Kyles cousins needed a babysitter for their sweet baby boy, Connor. He's just the cutest cuddliest thing in this world! I've never actually seen Kyle hold a baby, so I might melt while in the process!

: )

What's the best thing I've heard lately?

A man at work was waiting about ten minutes for a luggage cart, and naturally I apologized for the inconvenience. He responded "If this is the worst thing to happen to me all day, then I'm doin alright!"

That's what i'm talkin about!

Life is good.


  1. way to go girl! You are beautiful and don't need to stress about 10lbs :) And I am jealous that Kyle cleans UNPROMPTED!

  2. OH MY GOSH!! You're totally kicking butt! 30lbs since January???? I'm so jealous! You are absolutely, stunningly gorgeousss and if you lose the last 10lbs (well 7lbs according to your newer post lol), then that's awesome. If not, be proud of yourself anyways! You seriously look marvelous!! <3
