Happy Early Mother's Day to Me

I think I am going to make
this for myself for Mother's Day. I tend to need a good time out from time to time. Sometimes I just go in my room, lock the door and eat an ice cream pop. Sometimes a mommy just needs a five minute time out. Of course according to the health department we should get one minute for every year of age, doubt I could get away for that long.

Happy Early Mother's Day!!

soap & lotion dispenser makeover

I saw this on another post and decided to take it a little further. In the example she sprayed the soap bottle and modge podged a monogram on the front. I did several different dispensers: soap, lotion and sanitizer. I sprayed them, modge podged some paper on them, tied a little ribbon on one and then placed them on a candle holder. I then placed candles and rocks around them. I think it turned out cute. Will see how the hubby likes it once h uses it-hopefully he won't knock the entire thing over.

Monday Weigh In

Well for the first time in a month I finally lost a pound! I should be happy I guess but after walking 3 days last week I was a little disappointed. However considering what I had for lunch Sunday I am sure that didn't help in my weight loss journey. Sunday's are just killing my weight loss efforts!! I have got to do better in that area and increase my walking/running. I would love to get up to running a mile by May. We will see if that happens....

So I have been limiting my carb intake since January 4th-ever since we started our Biggest Loser contest at work. I lost some weight but it just wasn't coming off fast enough to keep me motivated. So about mid February I decided to go strictly on Atkins. I had done this after my second child and lost 25 pounds in 3 months. Again the weight came off quickly at first but I started cheating too much and started gaining a few pounds back each week. I had lost 16 pounds but now have gained 4 lbs back.

So last week I started running during my son's speech class and this week I have started walking/running after the kids go to bed. I have really enjoyed my walking/running although the running is a little slow and short right now, I know it will come with time. I've never been a fast runner but I have always enjoyed it.

So I am looking forward to Monday's weigh in, hopefully I will be able to record my first loss in almost a month.
