Joe has gone back to work and everything is back to normal. Brady keeps asking where dad is but I keep telling him that dad is at work and he will be coming home tonight.

I am excited to go to the gym after dinner. My goal is to go to the gym 6 days a week. I haven't lost any more weight, but that will change soon!

Brady has been so funny lately, he has renamed Max our puppy Buzz. He is chasing Max and yelling "no no buzz" he's a funny guy.

Brady has been doing so well at potty training. He has decided that standing up and peeing is a much better way to do it. He mostly pees on the floor but he makes it in his potty sometimes. I'm really glad that he is starting to go in the potty. I am so ready to be done with his diapers.

I am just sitting here wondering how all my sis-in-laws have time to make all of these super cute crafts and things when I barley have time to clean my house and get all the laundry put away. I only have two kids, where is my time for crafts? you women amaze me! I mean seriously Casey, you have four kids, a bunch of blogs, and an etsy shop full of cute crafts! Why can't I be more like you? Look at this stuff. ok enough of me being jealous, back to cleaning and poopy diapers.

Joe came in at 7:30 pm last night. Brady was so excited he could hardly contain himself. Connor cried when joe first held him but he is totally fine now. We are happy to have dad back!

This is the only pic I could find of me before. Gross.

I'm not happy about the way I look yet but I am getting there. Here is a pic of me today

Mallory and I

I have lost 6 inches from my stomach! The total is 24 pounds so far..I'm not done losing weight, I still want to lose 20 more pounds. I will post more pictures for every ten pounds I lose.

What I have been doing for the past three weeks:
- run/walk for an hour a day
- stomach and leg workouts at home
- drink lots of water
- no eating after 7
- eat four meals a day so I don't ever feel hungry, I probably eat more than an average person on a diet because i am nursing Connor. Hopefully it will be easier to lose weight when i am done nursing.


Found my mascara...oops

2 weeks and...

22 pounds down and 15-20 more to go! I have been working hard to lose weight for the past two weeks and it is really starting to pay off..most people probably cant tell that I have lost weight (thats how huge I am) but I can tell now. I have lost 5 inches from my stomach so far! I have been working out about an hour and a half everyday and I eat really really healthy. I am still a tank so I'm not posting any pictures yet but i will post some once I feel skinnier. I have a feeling I will be the winner of our weight loss challenge, that professional massage is going to great!

11 days

11 days until Joe comes and I can't wait. I need my husband back. Life has been way too crazy for my comfort and I need to go back to my small and boring town of Oak Harbor. Joe will get a four day weekend and I think we might just stay home the entire time and catch up on our shows. Joe needs some Brady and Connor time too. The boys will be so excited to see their daddy. Time please go by fast!

Feeling down today..

I am feeling kinda sad today. Joe is half way done with his deployment. I feel like He has been gone forever! These 5 weeks are never-ending. Its really hard to go back and live with your parents when you have been on your own for so long, its especially hard when you have children. I am sad that joe has to be on a ship for the big game tomorrow. Brady is learning so many new words and Joe is missing all of it. I told Brady that when Daddy comes home they will go see a movie together, it will be Brady's first time at the movie theaters. Daddy will also take Brady to the store to pick out a cute pair of underwear. Once Joe gets home the potty training will officially start. I am getting really sick of diapers. Connor has been growing a lot lately. He is well over 19 pounds now. Hopefully joe will take Connor on some fun outings too. Today is just one of those days, that every sailors wife feels during a deployment. Sad and lonely.
