The Summer of Erin

Starting June 9th I will be unemployed for the first time in 19 years. I have mixed emotions. Happy that I get to stay home with these crazy boys.                   
Sad that I will not see the awesome people that I have gotten to know over the past 13 years. And excited to work on me. There are so many things I have put off because of work. Writing, excersise, crafting and work around the house. So I plan to make the most of this time and make this summer about me.

I started out September strong with exercising five days a week and eating great.  But life has gotten in the way.  That is not an excuse. I was exercising at 8 at night after the boys went to bed. I was down 10 pounds. Then I started to slack.. UGGG. I have been eating good still, but haven’t done the hip hop abs for two weeks. I do not know why I sabotage myself. I let myself get in these funks that only I can pull myself out of.  I just need to quit making excuses and do it. So starting Monday I am back at it. I WILL exercise five days a week.  I WILL eat good, I WILL have no excuses for not doing this. I want to feel good about myself.  So I am done with the excuses and am going to hit my weight loss goal of 130 by June. I know I can do it.

Operation M.I.L.F

This is what I see when I look in the mirror and I hate it. I want to feel good about myself again, and have energy and be healthy. I keep making excuses on why I can't exercise today etc. There are no excuses. I might work full time and have two kids, but there has to be some time that I carve out of the day to get healthy and fit. I am only 33 years old and look and feel like I am in my late 40's.Sitting at a desk for 9 plus hours a day definitely doesn't help, but that is still no excuse. So hopefully this will be my motivation to get fit and active. The weight won't come off on it's own.

What am I getting Myself into?

I volunteered to coach my five year old son's soccer team in a moment of weakness. A moment of having a 24 oz of Mikes Harder Lemonade under my belt. lol. I know nothing about soccer, or coaching a team but it seemed like a great idea at the time. I really do not know what I was thinking. I work full time, have a baby and a house to take care of. Thankfully preschool soccer is very simple and they do not even have any goalies. So hopefully I will be able too muddle thru the month and a half long season. I am going to make a fool of myself but at least my son will be

I have a crawler!!

Last night Mr. Erik Mitchell Bohland decided he was going to crawl finally. I was getting a little worried because is 11 months old and all of his younger friends are already crawling. I have a feeling he is going to be into everything now. But would you be able to say no to that little chubby face? It is bittersweet because he will be my last and he is growing up so fast. Cannot believe he will be a year old.

Losing the Baby Weight

How long after you have a baby is it still considered baby weight? My baby is 11 months old and I still have all my "baby" weight to lose. Sad but true. When I had my first son Karson the baby weight came off easily. But the circumstances were alot different. I didn't have any stress and had time to recover. This time with Erik I was on bed rest for two months before having him 3.5 weeks early. Then he was transported to the NICU a hour away from our house. After having a C-Section I didn't have the rest that I needed as I was at the hospital 24 hours a day for two and a half weeks with my baby. After he got home it was hectic etc and has just gotten more hectic working full time and coming home to take care of both boys etc. So that is my excuse and I am sticking too it. I need some major motivation to get my butt up out of bed and get exercising. I am the worst procrastinator I know. So I am hoping that by posting on here that will get me motivated to get up and get moving. Summer is coming to soon and I want to be a MILF. lol

Animal Stories Birthday Card!

It was my nephews 2nd birthday on Saturday so I made him a card with some of the new items from the new Stampin Up catalog. I used the very cute Animal Stories stamp set with the coordinating DSP Tall Tales. I just love how the new "In Colors" go with the patterned paper. I also used the new Modern Label punch. Last but not least I stamped the "Happy Birthday" in the new Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I just love this set. It has so many different greetings. I just love the new colors. I used Crushed Curry cardstock and ink, Dusty Durango Ink and cardstock for and Soft Suede. I love how it turned out. And my nephew loved the little whale...
