5 Reasons Why I Make a Horrible Blogger

1)  9 out of 10 I am dressed like above.  Mom bun, jeans, tank top and very minimal makeup.  In order to take fashion photos I have to get ready and as a mother of 3 under 3... ain't nobody got time for that.
2) I lack consistency.  Example: I am going to blog every Tuesday + Thursday.

STARTED: 110lbs ENDED: 160lbs +50 My first pregnancy I had a serious addiction to brownies and Netflix. I managed to gain a whopping 50 lbs and it showed!  Thankfully yet sadly I had to leave for 3 weeks of Army training and the weight just poured off from all the heat and working out. By the time I got home I was back down to 115lbs  but I also found out I was pregnant 2 weeks later! Talk about a welcome home gift from my man. He's always been the go hard or go home type!
