Getting fit!

Never in my life have I really tried to be healthy. I worked out at the Y for a short period of time, but even then I was still eating like crap. I honestly have never had to worry about it until now. What's funny is that after I had Hadley I lost the weight fast and was really skinny for awhile. Now, my belly has gotten bigger and my butt too. I don't know my exact weight, but if I had to guess I would say around 110. I'm not trying to lose a certain amount of pounds I'm just trying to eat healthy and workout so I can hopefully lose this belly that is making me so self conscious. 

I have been trying to eat healthy for about 2 weeks now. It's HARD! I love good food and I love junk food and candy. I hate to be hungry! This has been so hard, but I feel like I am getting better. I tried counting calories in the beginning with the My Fitness Pal app, but it drove me crazy. I could never please that app. So now I am just making sure I eat healthy. I eat a lot of fruit, turkey burgers, and chicken. Exercising hasn't been easy either. I HATE exercise! Pair that with a healing broken foot and there isn't much I feel I can do. I do a lot of crunches and sit-ups, but I can't wait til I can get into the gym and do some cardio. The elliptical is one thing I can stand and that makes me feel pretty good. Not sure when I will be cleared for that. 

One thing I have been trying is this detox water I found on Pinterest. A gallon of water with a sliced lemon, half a cucumber (sliced) and a handful of mint leaves. It pretty much just tastes like cucumber water and I'm not sure if it's helping with my weight yet, but we will see. I guess it would be a good time to invest in a scale.  
Wish me luck! May is when we go to the beach, and it isn't that far away!

Happy Spring!

I sat down yesterday to update this blog and my mind was a complete blank, so hopefully today I can do a little better.

As usual there isn't much going on around here. I had my 2nd surgery on my foot a week ago today and things are great. I'm able to walk around in a special boot when I go out of the house and I'm able to kinda walk on it around the house. I still can't walk normal like I did before, but it's a process. I'm just happy that I'm not on crutches anymore. I hope to be walking in regular shoes sooner than later because honestly, that boot is a pain in the butt.

It's been getting warmer here and we have been enjoying it as much as we can. We have spent most days outside and at the park. Hadley is obsessed with blowing bubbles and playing "softball" aka soccer. It's going to be pretty chilly for about a week though. We are STILL waiting on our tax return thanks to H&R Block messing up on our forms. If we ever get our money we will be getting that 2nd car and I plan on doing  a lot of new things with Hadley. Getting back into programs at the library and enrolling her into swim lessons or tumbling. I'm excited!

30 months old

Y'all, Hadley is 30 months old. That means she is 2 1/2. That means in 6 short months she will be 3. 
*sobs in corner*

I don't want my little girl to grow up! It has happened so fast and her baby year is like a distant memory to me. I would love to relive that time again. But, I can't and I just have to enjoy every day with her and watch how beautifully she grows. It seems that she is getting more beautiful, smart, and funny as the days go by. I couldn't be more blessed. She has really changed my life. 

Anyway, enough with the sappy stuff. At 30 months Hadley's weight and height are unknown, but I'm guessing somewhere around 25-30 pounds and 35-37 inches tall. She is completely potty trained and wearing 2t clothing for the most part. Size 5 shoes. She is so independent and doesn't want help doing anything. At all. She says " I do it all by myself." Ok, kid. 
She has been giving us a hard time with sleep for the past week. We have been having to lay by her crib until she falls asleep and she wakes during the night calling for us. We are hoping this gets better soon, because it's not cool kid. You are very spoiled and we are trying to break that. Well, I am, not so much your daddy. He's a big softie. The terrible 2's have been in full effect lately. Patience has been running low these days. Hopefully things will get better soon as I get off the crutches and we get out in this warm weather we are starting to have. Tomorrow is my surgery to have the pin taken out of my foot and then hopefully soon I will be walking on both feet. Not in my own shoes, but a big, heavy boot. It's better than crutches though! Wish me luck!

House of boring

There really isn't anything exciting to blog about around here. I'm still pretty much house bound because of the crutches and logistics or going anywhere with a 2 year old. I think I am going to attempt to take her to story time tomorrow because she was really starting to get into it when I broke my foot and she hasn't been in 3 weeks. Surely I can handle that. 

I did find out some exciting news. I have an online friend that is moving here to Fayetteville in April and I am so excited to have somebody to hang out with and Hadley will have a little buddy. I also plan to go to the beach with my best friend in May. So, I have some exciting things to look forward to. The biggest thing I am looking forward to is getting back to walking and eventually being able to wear normal shoes. I am so impatient!

My silly girl has done so well with me not being my normal self. She has been such a joy lately and love spending every minute with her. I truly love this age so much.

And nothing like being completely covered in snot/tears/drool
