My Journey after Pregnancy

First a quick introduction of what these posts will be all about. 
Since I no longer will be posting Pregnancy Boards (shocker huh?) 
I decided to replace it with my journey as I work on getting back into shape. 
Notice how I didn't say getting back to my pre pregnancy body because lets face it
my body will never be what it once was and I am okay with that. 
My stomach has stretched to hold an 8 pound 4 ounce baby.
My hips have widened to allow not just one but two babies to pass through. 
My breasts have now been a main source of nutrition to two little bundles of joy. 
They have grown, shrunk and grown again. 
The first step is acceptance and I have accepted.
My. Body. Will. Never. Be. The. Same.
But to me it will be better. 
I will be sharing my week to week progress, struggles and even workouts eventually. 
I will be keeping track of my weight, waist measurements and physical appearance. 
I will answer all questions and even give any needed advice in the comments below. 
Are you wanting to get in shape for the summer season too? Join my journey. 
This post was a bit delayed but I did take the photos on my 1 week post anniversary. 
I will be posting every Friday! 
 Here's to a new body. 

I started my pregnancy at 119lbs and 31 inches. 
I finished my pregnancy at 140lbs and 39 inches.

Pounds lost since pregnancy: -15 pounds

Inches lost since pregnancy: -5.5 inches

What I have been doing for fitness: Eating healthy and breastfeeding.

This weeks biggest struggle: Lack of sleep = lack of ambition.

Short term  goals: Start walking more once the weather gets nice.

Long term goals: 110 pounds and the ability to run a mile in 6 minutes.

Weekly wisdom: Don't push your self too hard the first few weeks. Focus on cuddling your newborn and letting your body repair.

Confessions of a Hair Color-a-Holic

When sitting and deeply thinking about something harmful that I am addicted to it took awhile for me to come to terms with the ONE and only addiction that I have. 
Coloring & Bleaching my hair.
I have never:  smoked tried any drugs rarely drank alcohol chewed tobacco eat lots of junk food or even drank caffeinated drinks.
I am fairly borderline boring besides the fact that  I am ADDICTED TO CHANGING MY HAIR. Here is my story and eye opener:
I started coloring my hair when I was 15 year old.  For the longest time I was a tom boy and had naturally long dirty blond hair.  The first color I ever did was burgundy underneath and low lights up top. After that it was a spiral of different colors. 
Strawberry blonde, dark brown, blonde with red low lights, platinum blonde, chestnut brown it never ended. Along with all the colors I also had issues with ever growing my hair out again  because I was constantly ruining my hair with chemicals.
I started wearing my first set of clip in extensions when I wa…

Chicken Pox after Vaccine

The run around due to Breakthrough Varicella
On October 30th 2014 my son got his Chickenpox Vaccine. 

November 24th  I noticed a few bumps on his stomach when he woke up and called his pediatrician for an appointment right away. The doctor said that they were bug bites.  When I asked about the chicken pox vaccine she assured me that the rash had nothing to do with the vaccine. I picked up calamine lotion and carpet insect killer.  Went home and stripped his bedding, bleached his crib rails and mattress,  sprayed his carpet with the insect killer and even got rid of our dog. The bumps dried up but as soon as they did...
December 2nd Brayden was once covered in bumps.  They were mostly on his back/neck and stomach. I freaked out thinking that it was a bug again even though he sleeps in footie pjs. Once again I sprayed the carpets, stripped his bedding and bleached his mattress. I searched HIGH and LOW looking for any bug(s) or even a spider web. The bumps dried up and went away but not for long. 
By Dec…

An honest blog about Honest Diapers ❤ PART ONE

Before I get into the benefits of Honest Diapers I wanted to first share my story on the struggles I dealt with that lead me to Honest. 
My first born, Brayden, always struggled with diaper rash from name brand diapers.  When he was first born we used Huggies.  I noticed that I would have to CAKE on ointment just to keep the rash away when he didn't even had diarrhea or a soiled diaper. 
We then switched to LUVS. Within a week his rash was even worse and peeling.  I once again headed to the store to look and buy new diapers.
All these store named diapers that you always hear and every box is saying how amazing their brand is but even Pampers didn't help his poor butt. I was spending tons of money on diapers and diaper rash cream too! 
I then switched to Huggies Naturals. He still got a rash and our problems were far from gone.  Brayden came down with a virus that consisted of unending diarrhea.  Mixing diarrhea with an already sore bottom was not a good mix.  I took my poor b…
