What I've been up to lately - 30 Day Shred Work Out

So I have been working my bum bum off - literally! I read about this workout on another blog, although I can't remember whose :( and I thought I would try it out!
Luckily it was on the list of our Netflix and I could try before I buy! I love to do that with all of my books - get them from the library first in case I don't like it. That is my frugal tip for the day

If you are looking for a good, quick, effective workout than this is the one for you! I am finding muscles I didn't know were there and they are hurting too! So far I have lost about 8 lbs. My goal is about 12lbs. I know it's a weird number - why doesn't she just round it up to 15 or down to 10? Well 12lbs. is what it will take to get me to my ideal weight! I guess the question should be - why did I gain a weird amount of weight?????

I have also changed my diet. Yes, I am now eating better. Not as much chocolate (I HAVE to have some at least every other day), more fruits and veggies, added Protein shakes for breakfast, and am now having Meatless Mondays. (I will have to share some of the Yummy recipes we have tried lately in another post).

I was even able to get my hubby on board with all of the changes. Actually he is the reason I jumped to make all these changes. See hubby went to his yearly bi-yearly physical last month and got some not to exciting news. He has very high sugar levels which I have always been concerned about because both his mother and grandmother are diabetic, and his cholesterol was too high for his age.

At first he didn't like the diet restrictions the doc and I gave him. But he is starting to enjoy the new meals and how much better he is feelingI was even able to get him to do the Shred workouts with me!! I thought he would bail after the first day - but he is even getting up 30 minutes earlier to make sure he has enough time to do it before work! I am so proud of him! I tried to get up earlier (5:30 instead of 6:00. but I REALLY need that extra 30 minutes or I am not a happy person to be around!)

So I get up at usual time to make his lunch and protein shake, send him off to work, make the bed and then do my workout. All before little honey wakes up! I am so proud of me, too!

Then the sad news hit - hubby lost almost 12 lbs!! UGH! so unfair. and he did most of this weight loss just by diet before he started working out! Well I guess men are made different then women. I just keep huffing, puffing and sweating along.

What are you doing to get into shape?? Please leave a comment as I am almost done with this 30 day and ready to try something new

Tangled or Rapunzel themed T-shirt

Well it happened. Little honey got invited to his first girl/boy party! Can you believe it! 5 1/2 years old and a girl wanted him there! (Well all the kids from preschool where there.)  I was worried about how little honey would act or if he would even go!

So I asked him if he would want to go to a GIRL party? Yes he did!

Then I asked him what he wanted to give to a GIRL? He wanted me to make her something! Ahhh. Just melts a mamma's heart that he wants to take something I made!


What do I make for a GIRL? A 5 year old GIRL? I haven't made anything for an GIRL before! Only babies!

So I went to the invitation for some inspiration. The theme was Rapunzel/Tangled. Hmmmm. Maybe a shirt with Rapunzel's hair on it?

This is what I came up with....

A little different ~ but little honey loved it! And he was so proud walking into the party and giving it to the little girl.

I did a little free style flower and grass embroidery at the bottom. Hey cut me some slack it was my first time embroidering! But I had fun.

And the little girl and her momma liked it!

When I picked up little honey he was upstairs playing with the other little boys in the older brother's room ~ no girls allowed!! Funny how it always ends up that way♥

Hope you enjoyed!!
