Sunday Samplings- Bad Habits

Woo, bad habits really stick around forever...I thought I'd clear the air with myself and admit some of my bad habits in the hopes I can keep trying to curb them!

I really complain too much; it's so much easier to complain than think of one's blessings. I'm an impulse buyer, which means I spend too much money and don't save enough. Especially when it comes to books and DVDs; I'm just hopeless.

I'm also quick to anger and slow to forgive, which means I'm moody and prideful....

I could go on, but these really are ones I'd like to curb a bit more than the rest. Complaining can really dampen my attitude about life, which can get me angry, prideful, and wanting to go out and buy books and DVDs, which in turn makes me feel guilty since I don't really have the they're all very vicious cycles....grrrrr.

What are your bad habits?

Happy 1st Birthday, Gabe!!!!!

Gabe celebrated his first birthday last Tuesday! I can't believe he's ONE. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday he was born and other times it feels like he should've moved out by now! It's been a rough and tumble year together...but he's growing and learning and smiling, laughing!


His first birthday wasn't the best by any means. He was just recovering from an ear infection and then got the icky pukey flu and passed it onto the rest of us. So we didn't do the cake that night just some presents and extra TLC.


So we figured we'd do the cake experience once everyone was last night we headed down to Pirate Island and ate pizza and I made a cake from a box since I don't know the meaning of scratch. Gotta love Duncan Hines with chocolate frosting and yummy marbley cake goodness. It was a quick run to sing happy birthday and eat cake since it was way past his bed time! I even set up a cute Winnie the Pooh sign that said Happy 1st Birthday!!!! Yes, we chose a Pooh theme for the "party" that really only consisted of Gabe, me, and Archie...and I think the kitties may have made an appearance.


And for a weight loss update I lost 1.5 pounds while being sick and not exercising! Woot! But who knows what this week will bring....

Weight Loss Update

After four weeks with two of those weeks being sick, I have officially lost......................................................................................................................................................................................FIVE POUNDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!!!! I've been counting my calories using and giving myself a day off once a week to not count calories. I also excercise at least five days a week and make sure I eat my fruits and veggies. I am very very excited and happy!

Also Gabe is crawling like crazy now and pulling himself up and balancing really well standing up. He made it up the stairs all by himself and pretty darn fast...before I knew it he was already up three stairs! It's been a bit tough on this weekend with him now getting sick with a bit of the flu bug, but he should be recovering soon.
