I should have mentioned this before but I didn't so deal with it

I decided to start doing P90X with Jon because I am so ready to be done with this baby weight! This program is probably one of the hardest things I have ever made myself do but I am excited to see what it can do for me. It better do something it is at least an hour a day 6 days a week!

I just started week 5 and I already notice I am a little stronger and I didn't cry today! yaaaay me! While I am excited that I noticed that change and some toning in my body, I still haven't seen a single pound shed off of me, in fact I have gained weight. From all of the research I have done that is normal for a woman and I should start seeing major changes in my body during this phase (phase 2).

Eventhough I have read a lot and I know what is going on with meis normal, it doesnt help when you are doing the program with your husband and you are gaining weight and he is DOWN 11 POUNDS. He has learned now that when he does step on the scale not to tell me how much MORE he has lost. Don't get me wrong I am jealous happy for him but it is so hard that he is dropping all this weight and I'm not. I am trying to keep going with the hope that my time will come too. I will start updating more but no I will not be posting my lovely "before" picture :)

You're how old??

I know I have been slacking on my bliggity blog but here you go

I can't believe that my little tiny preemie baby is 5 years old! I know how exciting it is for him, but for me it is terrifying. It's weird because when he was born I couldn't picture him at age 1, at age 1 I couldn't picture him at age 2 and so on. I know he is only 5 but my mind has already drifted to trying to picture him as a teenager. I mean what kind of person is he going to be? What will he be like? What will his first girlfriend be like? Oh geez...see how my mind wanders?? That is far enough away but for now my baby is getting ready to start Kindergarten, and I have to fight back the tears everyday. I can only imagine what his first day is going to be like. I can picture myself a blubbering mess while Braden runs off and forgets I am still standing there. After standing there for 15 minutes Jon will have to drag me back to the car explaining that Braden is fine, and maybe if I am good he will take me out for ice cream to make it all better.

Bradens birthday party was a lot of fun...ok for him. He had his closest friends with him and of course he didn't want to leave. I didn't get to have as big of a party for him as I wanted but we are just so broke this year it was impossible to invite every kid that Braden has ever met. As much as I would have liked to do that it just wasn't going to happen. Surprisingly to party with a giant rat is not cheap! All that mattered is that he had an awesome time and couldn't stop talking about it for DAYS. I have a strong feeling that this birthday party will not be the last at that beloved place....lucky me!!!
