Been Very Very Busy.

So.. I haven't blogged in 2 weeks. I have been super busy at work with Spring Break camp all week and we haven't had a computer at home. Therefore, I haven't been able to update. Olivia went to her 18 month appointment with her new ped. and we LOVE her. She was so nice and so helpful. Olivia weighs 20 lbs 14 oz (5th %tile) and 32.75 inches long (75th %tile) She's getting so big. She has such a personality and now likes to count 1-5 with help and sing ABC... She talks all the time and loves to go bye bye with her purses, but after she gives lots of kisses to everyone.
My BFL program is going great. I got off my track for a week, but i still have continued to lose. My first goal is SO close. I'm hoping Monday morning I will reach it. :) I'll update then. :)
We are all so ready for the spring and summer months.. We have enjoyed playing outside everyday with Olivia and we are about to plant our garden...
This past week has been of my most stressful ones in a long time and i was SO happy to see it pass and to get to take a 2 hour nap this morning and get refreshed!! Bring on the Summer now :)

           For now here is Olivia's 18 month pictures we had taken...

Why I Love My Husband (2)

1. He's Awesome. Since I've started this Body For Life program he has been my motivator. He cooks all of our suppers. I'm TERRIBLE at cooking and he can cook the meat JUST right how i LOVE it.

2. He helps out around the house so we can get our house chores done so we can play on the weekends. I hate having to do housework, when Olivia wants to play. So we get it done usually on Thursday and then we can relax on the weekend.

3. He's the strong one. When things happen I know I can depend on him to be the shoulder i need to cry on. He is always the one that stays calm and puts everything together to get us through "the storm"

4. How he works hard each day to take care of me and Olivia.

5. One of my favorite things right now is when him and O play their music. Daddy playing the guitar and O playing the harmonica. It's AWESOME. He is the BEST daddy in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!!

I Love You If I don't Say It Enough. You are AMAZING and The Man of My DREAMS.

Week 5 - It's SO nice to see you.

First I want to say I'm SO excited that my best friend will be having a baby in approxiamently 3 WEEKS!! I can't wait to go home and be with her and see this new bundle of joy enter the world. God is GOOD! Also I want to pray for two of my other best friends who have been trying to conceive.. God has a plan for them I pray he will bless these two girls with beautiful healthy babies when the time is right.

Now on to Week 5 *Praying the BEST week Yet*

Well let's just say Week 4 was long, hard, and overrated! :) This mornings work out went great, got my weights set on my machines and I'm ready for these next 4 weeks! Got a good work out on my arms and so far the food and water is going AMAZING. I know I'm going to be wanting my sweet tea, but gotta keep my GOAL in mind. I'm SO close to Goal #1. I want to achieve it this week! My new favorite meat, DUCK! :) YUM!! I did my measurements this weekend and I've lost 3 inches in my butt and hips! I was excited about this. I have lost a total of 8.1 lbs since I weighed in 5 weeks ago today. It's been tough.. I've been developing more self-disicpline through this and self-control. 

Goal is a desired result a person or a system envisions, plans and commits to achieve—a personal or organizational desired end-point in some sort of assumed development. Many people endeavor to reach goals within a finite time by setting deadlines.

Self-Discipline  refers to the training that one gives oneself to accomplish a certain task or to adopt a particular pattern of behavior, even if one would rather be doing something else.

Self-Control the ability to control one's emotions, behavior and desires in order to obtain some reward later.

Also I wanted to touch on our new series at church. I know I have friends that read my blog that love our church and would benefit from hearing some of the sermons we get. If you are interested in a life-changing word go here:  Podcast from Destiny Church and listen to how amazing Pastor Chad is. He's a REAL person and doesn't try to fake or look down on anyone. Destiny Church has changed Jeff and I's life and we are SO thankful for all the friends and the new family we gained!

We are studying Jonah - Man On The Run  Sermon 1: Jonah 1:1-12

1. God Will Often Ask You To Do Things You DON'T WANT to DO
2. You can ALWAYS Find A Boat Sailing In The WRONG Direction
3. God May Send A STORM To Grab Your ATTENTION
4. Jonah's Worst NIGHTMARE Was Exactly What He NEEDED

What is God Asking You To Do?

What A Week...

This week has been the LONGGGGEST week!! We visited the bootheel last weekend and every since we have got home i have been UNmotivated and TIRED. I've tried going to bed earlier, but I can't seem to go to sleep. I decided today I need to get myself together and GET MOTIVATED! I went to GNC and got some new vitamins (multi pack) 7 pills a day.. BUT I get everything i need in one little package.. Yippie. SO excited to start these on Monday. Body For Life Week 4 has NOT been very successful :( I'm praying to maintain the weight I was going into Week 4 and REALLY pushing myself with my cardio next week. I hate halfway doing things, SO it's time to put a fire under my tail and get to working hard. Thanks to my girls Stacey and Alicia for motivating me this morning and sticking with me this week.
Olivia is now in her big girl bed. She's done really good all week. This morning i found her in front of the couch all snuggled up under a blanket... She must have woke up and decided to play and just sleep in the living room floor. What a cutie! She's got SUCH a personality now and we LOVE it. Kisses for no reason, and love the "real" laughing.. She will start and can't stop and it's absolutely PERFECT.
Tonight we have our first SAS Night at DC! I love our church and all my girls!! I hope to see lots of girls there, and especially of the women from my Monday night's women's study!! I love those girls!! They are all so awesome and have a story to share that will make you want to rejoice and give God all the praise... They are AMAZING.
Life is going great.. I can't complain.. I have an amazing family and a great group of friends.
This weekend's plans.. SAS Night tonight, tomorrow sleeping in, Olivia's 18 month pictures, and our FIRST DC Saturday Night Service, Sunday Nursery, Baby Shower, and RELAX!

Have a Great Weekend!! .
