This is me and my journey. I am looking to live my life each day loving my husband and kids and making each day better than the day before. This is my journey. I hope you enjoy the ride!
It's been a spendy week....
Man, this week has been spendy. Not really in big purchases but in small stuff. I was hoping to get some no-spend days in this week, but I don't think that will happen. I will have an update tomorrow....
5 years ago today I went in to the hospital to have a scheduled C-section for my last child! We knew going in that we were done have children and we chose to have my tubes tied after my C-section. When I laid my eyes on Benjamin for the first time I knew without a shadow of a doubt that our family was complete. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for Benjamin!
I thought it would be fun to ask him some questions and record his answers about his life as a 5 year old!

I read an interesting article earlier today that suggests that there is a direct link between your stress level and the amount of clutter in your home. The more clutter that you have in your home, the more likely you are to struggle with stress and in many cases depression. It makes a ton of sense to me.
I have been feeling VERY stressed lately and have been fighting depression. I have also noticed that the piles are forming in our home and that there is "stuff" everywhere. When I walk in our house, in our mud room, the first thing I see is stuff and piles on top of shelves and things on the floor and so really there is no way to relax. At the same time, I have been spending more time in our bedroom, and I think that that is because it has been decluttered for the most part and I feel calm in there. So, I decided that this weekend I am going to try to tackle some cleaning projects that have been weighing on my mind.
I kind of started this project this past Monday when I bough…
So one of my 2017 goals is to lose 40 pounds by the end of the year. This is a necessity for me, as in the last few months I have gained 15 pounds. That is not good. I want to be healthier and feel better about myself.
In order to keep me accountable,I am hoping to come back each Wednesday to share my weigh in and my successes and failures from the previous week. So let's hop to it and see how I did this past week, shall we?
SO HOW DID THIS WEEK GO??? My official starting weight(on 1/1/2017)was: 242.0 pounds!My weight last week was: 236.0 pounds.My weight this week is: 234.4 pounds. So a loss of 1.6 pounds! :-) Total loss from 1/1/17: 7.6 pounds Yay! So happy to see the scale moving in the right direction again! As I was reflecting on things that have to do with my weight, I was thinking about the things that have worked for me in the past and so I decided to give carb cycling a try again. I feel that I eat too many processed carbs so this way I wouldn't necessarily feel depriv…
