Last week I tackled a HUGE feat... I wanted to convert my computer desk into a craft station. Travis was on board (even after a long day after work) and after about an hour of organizing...my craft station was complete!!
I do a few crafts a week during Amelias nap time and figured I would start sharing...aka:
D.I.Y NAP TIME CRAFT!
The first one is EASY BREAZZZZZY: Making a centerpiece that doesn't die within a weeks time :)
I always have fresh flowers all over my house and when I saw these plants at HEB, I had to snag some up...they were $1.29 EACH PEOPLE!!! I took a vase I had laying around and planted them right in!
I was so happy with the outcome and it looks so cute on my table...if you're wondering about the third plant...well, it didn't fit. In a quick fix, I stuffed it into a wine glass I got at the Dollar Tree and I LOVED it!
I am thinking about going back and getting a few more to maybe line three in a row on my table and find a new home for my other arrangement...we will see :)
In my last post I was so excited to show you my new hair cut that I almost forgot to mention my how else my life changed. After our photo shoot I was scrolling through the pictures and almost didn't recognize who I saw (in that hideous lipstick). This is not a "uh, I can't lose my baby weight, I am so fat" pathetic post....I AM POSTING THIS TO HOLD MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE.
Not only am I about 17 lbs away from my pre-preggy weight, but I feel so uncomfortable in my own skin and literally had a mental break down when I had to put on a bikini last weekend (ask Travis...actually don't ask him, he was so mad at me, haha). I know my body will forever be changed and actually have a way more positive outlook on my body today then I did a year ago. A woman's body is amazing and seeing what it can go through during a pregnancy is even more so. BUT I do not have to be stuck with this body.
My problem is not my diet, I swear I am a rabbit and basically survive off of veggies, soups and fruits. I could count the sodas I have in one year on my left hand...I am a health nut and always have been! The problem is exercising...
9 months before I got pregnant, I was in a horrible car accident breaking my pelvis/tailbone/sternum and doing a few internal injuries as well. I was in amazing shape, running about 15 miles a week and eating p90x for breakfast. It wasn't until after I had Amelia that I started having pains when trying to exercise from both the injuries and lack of exercise in the last year and a half. AGAIN this is NOT a pity post...I am looking for any advice of good exercises that would benefit both my soft body AND my brittle bones...other than walking- which is a no-brainer and...boring. Breast feeding isn't an option anymore, one infected nipple and a screaming mommy later- I will NEVER go down that road again.
Today was the first day of my 60 day challenge!
I went to the gym early this morning for 45 minutes and I jogged for 25 minutes (straight might I add...I was so proud!) after the baby went to sleep. I was going to do some ab exercises but Lucy decided to SHIT all over my floor and I spent the rest of the night with my steam cleaner :( still upset about it.
If you know of ANY ab exercises that would benefit me, please comment! I really need some advice! I almost cant do anything on the floor as my tailbone is on fire after a few reps.
I will keep all (7 haha) of my followers up to date on my progress...or lack there of ;)
