I Soooooo Need To Lose Some Weight!!

Hey all....sorry I did not post yesterday, it was a busy day for me! After my morning appointment, I ran errands until I had to go pick up Ryleigh from school. We came home for a little bit and then had to go pick up Kristyn from volleyball practice, ran home so she could change, stopped and got her boyfriend, met some friends in town and then took 15 kids to a carnival in a neighboring town...we got home late and my allergies were kicking my butt from being in the area where they show animals....so, I had a pretty rough night last night!

You my be wondering what that has to do with the title of this post and really it has nothing to do with it, but my morning appointment yesterday has EVERYTHING to do with it. You see, I weigh more now than the day I delivered both of my kids! UUGGHH!! So, yesterday I went and joined Weight Watchers! Yep, sure did!! My friend Salina joined a few weeks ago so we are going to go to the meeting together and help hold each other accountable. I am the type of person who has no self discipline, plus I hate to do this type of stuff alone. I have tried but I just can't stay committed. On my way home I stopped in at the local YMCA to see what they had to offer for workouts. They have different classes everyday of the week, so everyday after I drop my girls off at school, I am going to go to the YMCA and workout. On Wednesday of each week, I am going to go to Kingwood for my weekly Weight Watchers weigh in and meeting and then stop by the YMCA on my way home and work out for an hour. I am going to lose this weight...I have to...I don't like the way I look and I need more energy. So dear readers (all 5 of you...lol)....my weight this week is.....142.6....yes, I am posting it here for all of you to see! I have an ultimate goal in mind, but am not ready to share that just yet...maybe in a few weeks. For now, I am setting a small goal of 5 lbs...My plan is on Wednesday of each week to have Wednesday Weekly Weight Watchers Weigh In post to document my weight loss journey...I hope you all stick around for it.

Well, I need to cut this short because I have to take Kristyn's spirit sticks to the school along with the cheerleaders snack bags for the games tonight. Until next time, have a blessed day!!

Erin Condren Craze

I know, I have not done very good at this blogging, but I am going to try to do better. I have some things in the works and hope to be sharing them soon.

About the title of this post....have you gotten sucked into the Erin Condren craze (www.erincondren.com)?? I sure have. Earlier this summer, I started looking for a organizer/day planner in order to help me keep up with everything that goes on in our life. My oldest daughter is in jr high and plays volleyball for the school, basketball, runs track, cheers and plays club volleyball during school volleyball off season and my youngest daughter also plays club volleyball. So, as you can see I NEED help remembering everything. Anyways, low and behold I came across a blog that raved about the Life Planner by Erin Condren....so, I hopped on over to her website and I swear, I heard angels sing!!!!!! She has the CUTEST organizers, labels, cards and other things....all personalized!! Who doesn't love anything personalized!!! I was a bit shocked at the price ($50.00), but then I got to thinking that I have spent that much trying to FIND a planner that I love and works for me, so I bit the bullet and bought one....I stalked the mail lady and even hunted her down when I went to the mailbox only to find that I had a parcel to pick up at this post office!!! Utter disappointment! Never fear, what did I do, I called my friend who works at the post office and she called my mail lady and found out where she was and I went and met her on her route to get my parcel!! Well, I sat right there on the side of the road and opened the box and again, I heard angels sing!!! It was everything I had hoped for and more! Not only did I get my beautiful tourqoise and white Life Planner, but I also got a coupon for 10% off my next order AND several personalized labels....just because Erin Condren is great like that!! Upon further research, I found a coupon on Plum District for $50.00 worth of merchandise for $25.00....woo hoo!! AND, as if that is not enough, I found another one on One Kings Lane....SCORE!! So, I am ordering my sister one for Christmas and cannot decide if I want to order me some labels or some Christmas cards....I am thinking about going with the labels....So, without further ado....here is my Erin Condren Life Planner....




I am officially, an Erin Condren customer for life!! I love my planner and the fact that it is so colorful, has a month at a glance as well as each day of the week broke down by morning, day & night. It comes with a pockets in the back so that you can keep papers, coupons, receipts, etc. It also has a plastic zipper pouch....so, if you haven't already jumped on the Erin Condren band wagon, hop on over to her website and check out her products...and, as Erin says...."Enjoy!"

** I have not been compensated in anyway by Erin Condren for this post. I posted about this product strictly because I love it and want others to enjoy her products as well.
