Golden Ponies!

I have decided that I am going to treat myself to something when I lose my first 10%. I think I have found the perfect thing! Golden Ponies is an awesome Etsy shop that makes shoes out of Mexico. I was amazed when I found this shop. I would love to dabble in creating shoes. My great grandpa made shoes so I figure it is on my blood. Sorry the pictures are so small! I am still learning how to do everything.

How cute are these? I love love them!

These look like the are vintage and so adorable!

Oxfords! Oh mygosh I am in love with Oxfords lately!

AND! The best part? You can customize your colors of leather!! Holy awesome! Not to mention they are incredibly reasonable. How can I go wrong?

Sunday Songs

So I didn't weigh yesterday. Hence no post about weight loss! I had a hard week and needed a mental health day. Between St. Patricks Day and everything else I couldn't bring myself to jump on that scale. But I will be back next Saturday with a post and a good loss! In the mean time I have a song. It is a live video of Phoenix singing Lisztomania. I don't think it is the full song but I really loved this version. Enjoy!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

I love St. Patricks Day! Love it! Our family wears green and eats corned beef and cabbage with horse radish sauce. The whole shabang! Oh and this year our treat is mint brownies with green frosting. I can't wait til the kids are old enough to really appreciate a leprechaun coming to the house. Oh the fun I will have! Until then I am happy with coloring pages and little crafts. Hope your St. Patricks Day is full of luck and fun and mischevious leprechauns! Happy St. Patricks Day!

Sunday Songs

I am not a fan of Taylor Swift generally. I think she is crazy talented and beautiful but she doesn't write the kind of music I usually listen to. But this song is awesome! It makes me cry. This isn't the best quality but the song is worth the listen.

I weigh in

So I had a rough week. I was sick with a stomach bug pretty much the whole week. Which means that I ate whatever I thought I could keep down. We also didn't plan well enough. It has to be crazy easy for me or I won't do it. Plus I think that I had this idea in my head that because I did so well last week that I could be lax this week. When you see the results you will see that I really took this idea to heart. That being said I am trying to remember that this is a life long journey of losing and maintaining weight. So onward and upward! I am keeping a positive attitude and starting fresh this week coming up. Oh and I am actually planning on exercising this week. HAHA! Haven't done that yet. I figure I better start, I am starting small with going back to my Zumba class Tuesday and Thursday this week. Wish me luck!

This isn't a picture from this week like I originally was going to do but it is a sweet picture of boy baby and me when he was a baby. Enjoy! And I will be back with a current picture next week. I couldn't handle posting a current one this week! Sorry!

I am going back to school....

.... Well kind of! The ladies who did Home Ec last year are at it again! It is a online course to teach you to sew. It is all the basics. I know a little but not enough. I can't wait to get started! WOOT! Go here and sign up and lets get those sewing machines buzzing! A little side note. One of the creators is Rachel and she has one of my favorite blogs out there, Smile and Wave. Go visit her over there. You will be glad you did.

I really like this song and this video. Her pink hair is so so awesome. I wonder if it is her actual hair. Hmmm... I might be searching for a bright pink wig! She carries the whole music video by herself and she rocks it. Oh please oh please watch it!

My weigh in!

So guess what?! I lost 7 lbs this week! Can I get a what what?! I am very excited. Now I know that this is not going to necessarily be the case every week but it happened this week and I am thrilled! As promised I posted pictures. I think that I will every week if at all possible. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I know I am! My stats are below. I was so surprised by how much my BMI went down. That makes me want to keep going too! Yay!

This great belly shot is definitely a motivation!
