Jeremy and I went to Starbucks to wait out two showings earlier today.  This has gone on long enough folks.  Even Jeremy was irritated we had to leave the house. “What?!?  I have stuff to do today!”  Welcome to my world Green…welcome to my world.  “The Late Lowballers” are “thinking about it”.  Meanwhile one of the showings today was a second showing with “The HOA Guy”.  So lovingly called because he wanted more information about our HOA and his realtor keeps calling our realtor.  We don’t have any information other than we pay $195 a year and we have gotten two notices to fix our fence pickets when they were broken.  So….Mike called to let them know we just countered an offer then he came for second showing! I suppose that could be good.  That’s where we stand as of now.  Thumbs up


I had kind of an off day yesterday.  I woke up late, ate my breakfast late, took a two hour coma nap, didn’t get all my food in (my stomach is in KNOTS) and didn’t get the Yoga X in until around 8pm because I wanted to wait for Jeremy.  He was working an extra job and wouldn’t be home til 5.  Then we had two showings from 5-6pm so we were all kinds of off schedule.

Speaking of coma naps, we are exhausted.  These workouts are taking everything out of us.  Thankfully the soreness is working its way out but the persistent pain is making me physically tired too.  It’s such an effort to get around.  Jeremy has been totally passing out every night.  P90X is not a joke friends.

I got all of my breakfast in yesterday morning.

The same as the rest of this week.

This morning I had time to make steel-cut oats. I was only able to finish half of it, thankfully Aidan finished the rest.

photo 1

1/4 cup steel-cut oats, 1 1/2 cups water, Ideal, cinnamon and vanilla, 4 slices turkey bacon

For lunch yesterday I had 2 oz mashed avocado, 1/2 cup cucumbers, 1/2 cup carrots, and 2 light cheese sticks.  Then I had my zone bar.  Super yummy and filling lunch.

photo 2 (2)

I didn’t get another chance to eat until about 6:30 and I knew we were doing yoga in a little bit so I made my protein smoothie.

photo 3

After yoga I had my fruit bar and 1 tbsp. peanut butter.

photo 4

Yoga X was awesome.  It was 1 1/2 hours but it didn’t seem that long.  Jeremy was completely bored with the first part but liked the second part.  The first part was all Vinyasas and the second part was balance poses and “Yoga Belly X”  Once again I have A LOOOOOOOT of room for improvement.   We couldn’t stop laughing at the end.  Those who have done P90X know what I am talking about. Winking smile

TODAY’S workout was legs, back and our favorite Ab Ripper X.  It was (excuse me) pure hell.


It was by far, for the both of us, the hardest DVD so far.  I totally hit the wall at about the 45 min mark.  At that point I was just moving.  I sat out an entire pull up round but got back into it and finished it.  The Ab Ripper seemed easier today.

After today’s work out I had my protein shake….I needed it SO bad today!

When we were able to finally return home (after waiting for “HOA Guy” to leave) I wasn’t super hungry but knew I needed to eat.  Thumbs down

photo 2

This morning I prepped two tuna salads for Jer and I to eat for lunch.  I was glad this was ready to go.

Tomorrow is Kempo X, which I believe is like kick boxing.  Could be fun?  Maybe the boys will get into it with us!  Sweet Aidan wanted to do yoga with us so bad last night!  But it was bed time. Sunday is a rest day or we could do a stretch video.  I think he would like that!

Hopefully I will be able to pop in over the weekend with some good news!  Until then….keep  us in your thoughts and prayers!!!!


THE phone call

Last night as I was sitting down to write about Day 3 of P90, we got a phone call.  THE phone call…..a legit offer from the “Late Lowballers”.  One day last week I had an appointment for a 1:15 showing that didn’t show up until 2:20.  I had already returned home and was about to eat a very late lunch when they finally showed up.  They were the ones who sent our realtor two VERY lowball offers. So hence the term of endearment. Smile But they have finally offered something we are going to work with!  Hopefully they take it because it is the bare minimum we can take and have enough to put toward our new home without having to dip into our nest egg! Fingers crossed

It’s so surreal to think that what we have been waiting for all this time has finally come.  It’s very anti-climactic.  I think because I had it all played out in my head a different way.  I completely dismissed these people and was thinking that any day now we will have a surprise offer from one of the many that have said our home is their favorite but are still looking.  I have/had this theory that we would get a call from our realtor saying “Ok guys….got 5 offers on my desk!”  Everyone realizing that yes our house is the prettiest!!!  A girl can dream & it’s a fantasy that has gotten me through 111 long.arduous.days…..



Jeremy and I rarely take anything like Advil or Aleve unless it is absolutely necessary.  Yesterday was one of those days.  Jeremy could barely walk because his hip flexors were so sore.  I could barely move anything.  It is a whole new level of muscle soreness.  I decided that in order to make it through this first week, it would be a smart move to take something for the soreness.  We both took one Advil in the morning and then took two last night before bed.  We are both still sore this morning, but not anywhere close to what we were yesterday.  I am so happy that today is yoga day.

photo 4

Teaching Aidan how to foam roll!  He kept calling it a “Foam Ruler”  Silly Billy!

Day 3 was Shoulders, Arms and that blasted Ab Ripper X.  I am happy to report that I was able to do more of it this time.  Not a lot more, I sat out one whole exercise because it was physically impossible to do what he was asking me to do.  I did try though,  that counts right?  One of the things I like about this program is that I can’t get through it all.  It’s challenging.  I am looking forward to seeing my progress and at the end saying “I remember when I couldn’t do ONE of those, now I can do the entire routine!”  I liked the Shoulders and Arms workout.  Dare I say it was easy?  Ok, “easy” would be a relative term.  I would say it was the least difficult of the DVDs thus far.

There are a few things I am noticing physically.  First, my arms and legs are a little swollen and it’s making me feel fat.  Thumbs down Not a good thing for my head.  I just have to remember that it’s just swelling and it will go away.  Second, I have gained a pound….yes it’s just one pound but as a former fat girl….it messes with me.  Third, I am hungry.  The first two days I was not.  I struggled to get all my food in.  But yesterday I had NO problem!  I even had an extra “treat” of some almond butter before bed because my stomach was growling.  It was an extra treat but I don’t drink the recovery drink so I was still within my calorie allowance.  And lastly, I am already noticing muscle definition in my biceps and my stomach.  Hey, THERE is the silver lining!!!Thumbs up

Here are my eats and treats from yesterday….


photo 1 (3)

4 slices turkey bacon and I made steel-cut oats instead of rolled oats.  This bowl was 1/4 cup oats, 1 1/2 cups water, Ideal, vanilla and cinnamon. Cooked on low for 30 min.

photo 2 (3)

Post Workout Smoothie: same as yesterday…. except I used fat free milk because I ran out of almond milk.


photo 3

2 cups spinach and arugula mix with tuna salad.  1 can tuna, 1 tbsp. light mayo, mustard, salt & pepper.

Then my afternoon snacks…

Cucumbers, carrots, 2 light cheese sticks, and a Zone Bar.


photo 2

Dinner was really yummy.  ~ 2 oz avocado mashed up with some Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning, 1/4 cup brown rice and 2 Vegan Boca Burgers.



My fruit bar treat and then later a tablespoon of almond butter before bed.


Here’s to praying I don’t hurt something else doing 1.5 hrs of yoga on steroids!!!!

I need this A.S.A.P



P90X Day 2

I have the mother of all DOMS today my friends.  The soreness I feel right now is deep, in places I didn’t know could hurt.  My lower abs, that blasted pooch area is the most surprising place, my hip flexors.  It hurts to laugh….yeah that kind of sore.  I am reminded of that episode of Friends, “The One Where Chandler Works Out.” Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, Ow, ……The good thing is that I can’t whine about it this time.  I have to suck it up and do the work anyway! I was a strange mix of excited and intimidated over today’s scheduled workout.  Plyometrics.  I am very familiar with plyo because of the Jillian and Bob workouts I am so fond of.  But ya’ll….. this one is plyo on steroids.  I was excited because I am twisty like that and I enjoy a good torturous workout,  but genuinely concerned about my ability to perform because of the soreness and fatigue in my hip flexors from the AbRipperX.  I really didn’t know how I was going to make it through but some how, I surprised myself, and I did it.




This morning I ate pretty much right away at 6am even though I wasn’t all that hungry yet.  I made less oats this time because yesterday was really too much.  photo 3

4 slices turkey bacon, 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, Ideal and cinnamon.

I got all my morning work done and then it was time……

photo 4

and I survived!


Feeling pretty much like I was going to collapse,  I made my post workout smoothie!

photo 5

1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 3/4 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup ice.


I was able to eat lunch right on time today!

photo 1 (2)

3 oz. baked chicken seasoned with Mrs. Dash Onion and Herb Blend, 2 cups spinach and arugula blend with 2 tbsp. pomegranate vinaigrette.  After lunch I had my Zone Bar

I also got my afternoon snack in around 3:30, same as yesterday, carrots, cucumbers and string cheese.


photo 2 (3)

6 oz. of the baked chicken & 1/2 cup brown rice



All-Natural Fruit Bar & not pictured 1 tbsp. almond butter.


P90X has been a very humbling program.  I am thankful for that.  I am thankful to have a “project”.  I am thankful for a new challenge, something that is really hard.  I am thankful to have a goal. I am thankful for my able body.  I am thankful for these sore muscles.  I am thankful that my husband is doing it right along with me. You should see the two of us trying to get around right now….pathetic.

I am not exactly sure how we are going to get through tomorrow’s workout.  I told him I need to watch it tonight so I can mentally prepare myself.

Nighty night friends! Off to foam roll and stretch!


As a side note….look at my two hip attachments.  Do they love me, or my personal space heater?

P90X Day One

Over the weekend Jeremy and I got prepped for P90X.  If we expect to get the kind of results we see on T.V., we have to follow the plan….all of it.  I have said before and many others have too, your body is 80% diet, 10% exercise, and 10% just bein’ happy with what ya momma gave ya!

On Saturday morning we went through the nutrition guide and figured out a menu that would work for each of us and then we compiled a grocery list.  I was able to find a lot of resources on line with approved foods lists.  I found one on Mixed Fitness that made sense to me and printed it out.  I highlighted foods we would eat and we compiled our menus from there.  Jeremy had a bit harder time because 4-5 days a week he is limited to the times he can eat.  But he figured it out and is adjusting it daily.

photo 1 (5)photo 2 (5)

Our main goal is to do our best…..and yes, forget the rest!  Hardy Har Har. Winking smile

The plan calls for a P90X recovery drink and a protein bar.  Jeremy is using a recovery drink that he already uses and I am having a protein shake after my workouts as well as BCAA tabs I had left over from when I attempted Jamie Eason’s LiveFit.  Instead of the P90X protein bars (way $$$$) we are eating Zone Perfect bars.  They aren’t ideal, but it is one compromise we are making because the good protein bars are very expensive and the cheap ones have tons of sugar alcohols which cause major gastrointestinal distress and also have a lot of nasty ingredients.

Monday morning I took all of my measurements, my official beginning weight and my before pictures, then I had some breakfast.  It was later than I should have eaten it and that ended up throwing my eating schedule off the rest of the day.

For breakfast I had 4 slices turkey bacon, 1/2 cup old fashioned oats with 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 tsp. Ideal brown sugar blend and cinnamon.

photo 1 (2)

After my first P90X workout…..YIKES!…..more on that in a minute….I blended up 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, 1 cup almond milk and some ice then took my BCAA tabs.  A little while later I had my Zone Perfect Bar.

photo 4 (4)photo 2 (3)

photo 5 (4)

Because I was late eating breakfast, my post workout meal was around noon so I wasn’t hungry again until after 3pm.  I ended up eating what I had planned for lunch then.

photo 4 (3)

1 can tuna in water with 1 tbsp. light mayo and a squeeze of mustard, 2 cups of spinach with 1 tbsp. pomegranate vinaigrette.

A few hours later for a snack I had 1/2 cup cucumbers, 1/2 cup carrots and two light cheese sticks.

This was supposed to be my morning snack.

photo 1 (3)

Then around what should have been dinner, I had what was supposed to be my afternoon snack.  It made so much!!!  I slowly ate all of it over the course of an hour!

1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 cup almond milk, ice, 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup mixed berries.

photo 5 (3)

I didn’t get to my last serving of protein, my fat, or the last of my carbs.  I did have 1 tbsp. of almond butter before bed as my “treat”  Thumbs up


The first workout was hard in a way I have never felt hard before…..TWSS….It was chest and back day and even though it was basically pull-ups and push-ups….. wow….it was challenging.  I busted out 34 knee push-ups the first round and by the end I was able to barely do three.  That was with me really struggling to get my butt up.  My arms were so fatigued that I couldn’t even fix my hair back into a ponytail.  By the end of the day I could hardly brush my teeth and this morning….I couldn’t even reach up to give my sweet Jeremy and hug.

The first day calls for the Ab RipperX.  OMG…..It is very much a Pilates workout.  I had a very hard time with this.  I was able to get through the first two exercises, but after that I was doing maybe 10 of the next ones before I had to stop.  My arms and legs were wrecked!  I have never done some of the exercises and even though they hurt like you know where, I could tell that THIS is what is going to get my tummy back where it belongs.

When Jeremy got home I took all of his measurements and before pictures.  That was really fun for me!  I felt like I was his trainer!

I was absolutely exhausted by the end of the day and crashed pretty much immediately!

P90X, I may be in-love with you.




This morning I got the “daily disaster” cleaned up (I know I have said this over and over but…..those boys, I don’t know WHAT they do in the morning but they destroy this house!) and then went for a little jog.  I didn’t expect to really be able to jog a great distance before having to walk but I was surprised by how much I was actually able to.  I am definitely not in the shape I used to be but, I will get there!  I ended up jogging/walking 2.5 miles in 30 min.  I used the RunKeeper application on my phone but accidentally stopped it at some point so I wasn’t able to get an accurate reading.  Thumbs down  I loved it while it was working though!  The voice comes on every 5 min and lets you know it’s been a certain number of minutes, how far you’ve gone and what your pace is.  VERY COOL!

I also had downloaded a few new tunes which is ALWAYS essential for a great workout.  I love music so much.  It evokes serious emotion in me.  I think if I had ever been given the opportunity, I would have been some sort of musician or dancer.. Growing up I always begged for dance & piano lessons.  Clearly I never got those because I can do neither….  Annoyed

Try – Pink  <— Man I am in LOVE with this one. I played it over and over and over today.  I liked it before but they played it during a part of The Biggest Loser and I heard it in a whole new way.  I know the song is mostly about a terrible relationship but I hear something different when I listen to it.  I hear the struggle with one’s hopes and dreams….especially the chorus and the part where she sings “When you’re out there doin what you’re doin, are you just getting by?”  Loves loves loves.

Be itvia

Imagine Dragons – It’s Time <—–I am not sure what this song is about but whatever it’s catchy….

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Thriftshop. ( I won’t link that one because it’s got a lot of naughty words in it…..of course I chose the clean version on Itunes….which they didn’t do a very good job of cleaning it up…but whatever its super stupid and catchy ) Winking smile

When I got back from my jog I cleaned up and ran some errands.  I left Aidan’s jacket at the church when I made a mad dash to get out of there last Sunday so I picked that up.  Then I went to the outlet mall to get some plugin refills from Yankee Candle and I also found a new jacket!  My old coat swallows me now and I have been looking for a new one that wasn’t super expensive.  I wasn’t even really looking today & I found one!!!  Isn’t that how it always happens?  Happy DAY!

Since I was pressed for time and not super hungry yet I grabbed a couple of protein bars before I left to keep in my purse for when I did get hungry. So glad I did because I ate them both pretty much right away!  One before the church and one after!   I can go from zero to hungry in 2.5 seconds.

photo 1

After the cleanse, these tasted like candy bars to me.  I was in heaven!

We had a showing from 3-4 today so after I picked up the boys from school I had to wait down the street for them to come.  The buyer showed up at 3:40 but the agent didn’t get there until 3:53! They didn’t leave until after 4.  It was a little unnerving to watch the buyer walk around my house looking in the windows and inspecting the lawn……

As we were walking in the door my friend called and my battery was dying so I plugged the phone in while I talked to her and ate an apple, some cubes of cheese and a handful of nuts.  THEN later for dinner, I made a green smoothie!

photo 2

This smoothie had:

  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 scoop Jillian’s vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup mixed fruit (banana, pineapple and strawberries)
  • 1 small banana
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 cups ice

It made SOOOOOO much! I had to keep adding milk and ice in order to get the consistency I wanted and it just made it so voluminous!  I filled my “A cup” which is 24oz. and an additional 12 oz. glass.  I am barely able to finish the “A cup”,  I am super “filt”.  That’s how Aidan says “full”.  I don’t have the heart to correct him.

It indeed was a fantastic day!

Spontaneous MDO

Last night, after 2 days of constantly breaking up fight after fight between two boys who all of the sudden can’t seem to get along…..I told Jeremy that I was cancelling our plans to sleep in and workout with Bob.  Instead I was getting up super early, going for a nice long run, getting pretty and then I would be leaving for the rest of the day……He is such an amazing man…his response “I know, babe, I know its been rough.”

So that was exactly what I did.  I got up this morning bright, well, actually, it was still dark.  I got up dark and early Winking smile, had my coffee, quiet time, and a banana to fuel up for an nice long therapeutic run.

photo 1

I didn’t actually run for an hour and a half….this included cool down time and some stretching.

It was a great run though.  I incorporated intervals and felt so amazing afterwards.  I miss running outside.  I am going to have to start getting up before the sun just so I can get some in over the summer.  So worth it.

After I cooled down I ate a Gala Apple the size of a baseball.  I was going to make a smoothie but was full after this.

So then I got my messy self presentable for my second therapy session.

I was very anxious to leave so I grabbed something quick, still wasn’t super hungry but knew I needed something.

Coach rocks my world.  I still carry my first Coach bag.  It was a Christmas present from Jeremy about 6 or 7 years ago.  In fact, I was carrying it today.  I commented that it still looks brand new after all these years &  I carried it for two years straight every single day.

After my visit to the best store in the world I parked myself in Barnes & Noble with my  Grande Non-Fat Misto to try and find a new cookbook.

photo 1 (2)

I think I may have found the most perfect cookbook.

My criteria:

  • Simple ingredients I can find at my regular grocery store
  • Short list of ingredients
  • Nutrition Values
  • Serving Size
  • Healthy, Nutritious, Low Calorie Recipes.
  • Less than $20

I was SO excited to find this one.

Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook

Not only did it meet all of my criteria but it also had a section for slow cookers

I’ll never be in another food rut again!  No more searching hours for new recipes!

When I got home I was ready for a snack because I knew what was for dinner!  Otherwise I would have eaten right then….at 4pm…..4 servings of lasagna and 4 pesto muffins.

photo 3 (2)

Skinnytaste Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Scones.

I went ahead and made these last night instead of this morning because I was not too sure how they would turn out after mixing up the dough.  Scones are usually a very thick dough that you can knead.  This batter was very cake-like.  Gina’s recipes are always spot on so I didn’t question it.  While these “scones” are very good, they aren’t a scone.  They are more like bread.  The batter would be best used for muffins, and the serving size is VERY small for the amount of calories it holds.  If you used the batter for muffins, it would make 12.  So a muffin for 200 calories is quite a lot.  That didn’t stop me from eating about 3 of them straight out of the oven! What? She said serve warm!

For dinner we went to one of our favorite favorites places.

June Menu

The June Menu is the best of the entire year in my opinion.  Makes me hungry again just looking at it!  I might have to go again on Sunday before they change the menu…..

The strawberry salad and cobbler were magnificent.  This is the kind of place that leaves you wanting more.  I SO wish I could have taken my leftovers home.  Sadly, I had to leave them.  I am going to make us a completely unhealthified cobbler sometime soon!


Do you have a favorite cookbook or are you searching for one?

Do you have a bag/purse/pair of shoes/necklace that is one you will never part with?  One of sentimental value?


A Day to Remember

April 18th 2012 will be a day my little family will always remember.  It was a glorious and beautiful Spring day.

I got my 5 mile run in and stopped to smell the roses bluebonnets along the way.  Then I did the Tone it Up Girls Lean Arms Pyramid and a long stretching session.

Tone It Up

My breakfast, snack and lunch were the exact same as Tuesday.  I’ll spare the documentation….ya seen one bowl of oatmeal, apple, orange, protein bar, and smoothie, ya seen ‘em all!

I received two coupons for a free Zone Perfect Bar in the mail so I picked them up while grocery shopping yesterday.  My smoothie kept me satiated for quite a while but I was getting hungry again.   I knew I wasn’t going to be able to eat dinner until well after 7:30 maybe even 8pm.  This little bar was perfect.  I ate it on the way home from the store, around 4:45, and I was surprised that it held me over all the way until I was able to eat dinner.  It was really tasty.  It really tasted like a candy bar to me, except not addictively sweet and hyper-palatable.  The Zone Diet works by having you eat a balance of carbs-fat-protein so that you decrease cellular inflammation, which it says is why we are fat.  It claims that by eating this “perfect” equation you will not get hungry for hours.   While I don’t endorse the diet by any means, I do endorse these little bars!  Yummmmm.  The bars claim to have the perfect carbs-fat-protein ratio making it the perfect “Zone” mini-meal.   It WAS the perfect mini-meal!    It kept my hunger at bay for several hours.  This would not be the case if I had chosen a Larabar or a Luna Bar.  I would have been ravenous within two hours.  photo 1 (3)

Zone Perfect Chocolate Caramel Cluster

We were off to church pretty much as soon as I got home and got the groceries put away.  It was a big night.

There are moments in my life that I will remember forever. I will always have a vivid image of those moments. The moment I felt the warmth of my first son born after he was delivered.  The first moment I laid eyes on the 19 year old kid I’d spend the rest of my life with, hanging up cell phone accessories in Circuit City.  The moment in the Bellagio Chapel when he promised me he would never leave me, for better or for worse. The hard moments. The moment Jeremy sat at the edge of our bed and told me his brother had been killed.  The moment I watched my 2 week old baby boy being wheeled through the double doors of the hospital for surgery.

And this moment

On April 18th 2012 my son Luke accepted Jesus into his heart and was baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

The story on how this came to be can only be described as a total God thing.  There are times in our lives when we just rely on pure faith that the Lord is working for our good.  You don’t always feel it, it’s not always tangible, it’s not always this ooey gooey feeling of peace and love and joy.  Most of the time it’s like “Um, hello???? God, are you even there?  Can’t you see I need a little help?”  But then…..there are moments when He reveals Himself in such a magnificent way, you can’t believe you ever doubted his presence.  Times when He works in your life specifically to strengthen your faith.

He knows my name


photo 5 (2)photo 1

Times you are reminded that He is sovereign.

We stopped by our favorite, Chick-Fil-A, for dinner and I got something I have never tried before.

The Chargrilled & Fruit Salad

photo 2

This was SO yummy!  I am pretty sure this will be my new usual.  I used the Berry Vinaigrette, and it was good, but next time I will get the fat free honey mustard I normally have.

photo 3

I ate all the yummy stuff off and left the nutritious stuff like a 5 yr. old. What? I was full!

Today is DATE DAY!   I We have a few things planned.  Starbucks. The Container Store, for those items I can’t stop thinking about.  Lifeway & B&N for a baptism gift for Luke.  Lunch, not sure where & of course, Pinkberry.  Maybe I will be able to dragggggggg Jeremy into Ulta for some Mother’s Day help and to pick up a free gift with the coupon they sent me because I spent too much money a certain dollar amount in there over the last few months.

Betcha couldn’t have guessed this is my favorite movie of ALL TIME.  I have watched it hundreds if not thousands of times (<—— Blatant lie) and will never ever tire of it.  It’s the only movie I can quote word for word and also use the dialogue from pretty much daily……However, I either turn it off or fast forward right before Shelby collapses on the back porch.  I just can’t take it.  I will sob every.single.time.
