Princess and Ladybug~Day Twenty-three

My girls chillin', taking it easy this morning.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept

the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;

accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

taking, as HE did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;

trusting that HE will make all things

right if I surrender to HIS Will;

that I may be reasonably happy

in this life and supremely happy with HIM

forever in the next.

Delana~3 Weeks

I'm getting the hang of it now but still learning to function on less sleep. We dropped Madison off at school this morning and came home to nap. I woke up after the nap and looked at the clock. Oh no Maddie is going to be late this morning we over slept. A minute later I realized that we had already taken her to school. I'm losing it! I think the lack of sleep is finally catching up with me. I'm looking forward to the up coming break for Maddie because that means I can go back to sleep after feeding Delana instead of getting up and getting Maddie ready for school. It will be nice. Of course I will have to find a way to entertain Maddie. Should be easy enough.

Delana~Day Twenty

Here's a two for one.

Delana content... this is how she looks most of the time.
and not so happy. I believe she was doing some "work" there which doesn't make her happy.

Delana~Day Nineteen

I almost forget to do the picture for today... 11:00 pm

Getting On Track

I'm so frustrated with myself right now. I keep thinking that I want to start exercising but I just can't do it. I'm freaking out because Delana isn't on a schedule. She does eat around the same time everyday but sometime she sleeps more or wants to eat more. I am freaked out about going for a walk because I'm thinking she might get hungery and scream for the half an hour I'm gone. That would be super stressful for me. Nursing is convient yet also has it's drawbacks like, making it harder for someone to babysit. Right now I'm trying to figure it out but I just don't feel like I'm doing a very good job. I'm doing good with the way things are now but I want to add in time for exercise and cleaning everyday. It's not working! I also want to be able to get a shower in everyday and preferably around the same time everyday. I'm thinking that I might be expecting to much too soon but I swear there are ladies who do it! I'm just not one of them. I am trying, I feel like I can do it but it's just not working. Am I supposed to try harder or wait for it to work out on it's own?

My First Siggy


Biggest Loser~ Getting on the Ban Wagon

Madison and I watched the Biggest Loser tonight, we have watched the other seasons together too. I recorded the second hour so we could watch it together on Thursday night or tomorrow after school. I'm excited for this season because I know that I can now begin my own weight loss journey. I'm no longer pregnant so I can lose weight. I'm nursing so I will have to make sure that I'm still eating enough and don't over do it. While I was still pregnant I ran some numbers. If I lose ONLY a pound for the next year I will be at the exact weight I was when I met Paul, which wasn't super skinny but I felt good at that weight. I would be twenty pounds over my ideal weight, the hight side of the ideal weight. My ideal weight according to Weight Watchers is 117 to 146 pounds. Quit honestly I think I might look sick if I weighed 117 pounds, but who knows. If I lost one and a half pounds over the next year I would reach my goal weight according to me and also be in my ideal weight range.

Now the qestion comes....... how will I achieve this goal? Since I am not even three weeks postpartum I don't want to over due it so WALKING! I'm going to start out by just walking Madison to school. Walking her to school is about a mile and a half. I'm also going to do Weight Watchers online. I will add to the workouts a little at a time, working up tothree or four mile walks. I will also throw in some workouts on the ellipitical trainer and strenght trainning. I will test this out and make adjustments as needed. Here I go..... at this time next I will be at my goal!

Maddie' Hair Cut

Madison's hair is a long and tangled. It has been stressful getting her ready in the mornings since Delana is nursing when we are getting her ready for school. I have been brushing her tangled her with one hand which she has not complained about. Plus she has a few added layers of hair since she decided to cut it herself awhile ago. I decided yesterday morning that we needed to get it trimmed. I told her she could have it the same way it was but it just needed to be cut a little so it wouldn't be so tangled. She said that was fine. I brought her to get her hair cut after school and she said she wanted to get it cut like mine. I will be getting my hair cut again next week. I said that's fine but if you decide you don't like it you can't put the hair back on, alright? Yep! So here is the new do.

Bath Time~Two Weeks

Delana got her first bath today. Madison was the photographer and also helped with the bath a little too. Delana didn't like the water but liked Madison rubbing the lotion on.

Looking at the Scale

Scale Pictures, Images and Photos
Yesterday I weighed myself...... I'm at my pre-pregnancy weight............. YAY!
When I had checked into the hospital I was at a twenty pound gain. A few days before I was at a twenty-five pound gain. I was only told to gain fifteen pounds but I am glad that even though i went over everything was fine. ( Seeing I lost twenty pounds in less than two weeks.) I think that I am going to start walking next week, maybe a mile or two day. I don't want to overdo it but I think it will help me feel better to exercise. I am trying for four days a week. I need to work on toning and arms. Carrying the infant carrier is work.... lol. Wish me luck!!

Red Hair... huh?

I was noticing that Delana's hair has lightened up some and it has an auburn tint. Will she have red hair? Paul's grandma had red hair, as did mine. We will see.
