What in the name of Mother Hubbard?

So yesterday was a good day, why? you ask. Will I got an new DR. and when it came to that dreaded 7 letter {two worded phrase} weigh in I was pleasantly surprise to find out I lost 6 lbs. That's right 6lbs!!! 4lbs away from 10lb ! Super excited.
I was also surprised to find out how much I enjoyed a women Dr. I have only seen men so this was a nice change. {some how I got it in my head that women Dr's know to much with how I feel or some junk like that} So you can see what a surprise that was for me. It was really nice because we talked for a good 20 Min's about what I could do to lose weight and to get pregnant. So here is the plan no more whites: White Bread, White Rice. White Pasta and anything with enrich white flour. {I don't think that will be to bad I really like whole wheat things. Does anyone have a Good whole wheat biscuit recipe} The other part is No More Sugar! Now I actually started this a week ago and I am happy to say it has gone great. I don't even really crave sugar anymore. Although I have had sugar coated dreams lately were I haven't indulged and woke up so mad! I keep thinking its a dream that's were I am suppose to have sugar but even there I am denied. Whats a girl to do?

"Spirituality yields two fruits. The first in inspiration to know what to do. The second is power, or the capacity to do it. These two capacities come together. That's why Nephi could say, 'I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded' (1 Nephi 3:7). He knew the spiritual laws upon which inspiration and power are based. Yes, God answers prayer and gives us spiritual direction when we live obediently and exercise the required faith in Him."

So Whats up now? small VENT

So you may be wondering where I have been. I fell off the band wagon. How I was doing so good! Well, two weeks ago as coming out of JoAnns a group of boys started yelling rude things about my weight. {I will not repeat what I heard; just know if their mothers where there they would be embarrassed} I wish I could say I held my head up high and let their words bounce off my like as if I were rubber. The sad truth how ever is that when I pulled out of the parking lot and I cried. Then I fell out and hit the ground hard. I didn't realize how much I cared what those around me think, but when it comes to my weight I guess I do. So these past two weeks have been hard filled with food that would not fill my emotional state.
The truth is after looking at myself I do not like how I look. I do not think that I look good in anything. I feel like crap. I think that this might be a whole new rock bottom. Which is good maybe I turn spin this into a new beginning. The sad thing is I know the words effected me so much because that is how I already feel about myself. Its so funny I always say I hate drama, and here I feel like my life is made up of it. Ohh the drama we create.
Well I think that's enough from me for right now thank you so much for letting me vent.

Today's Goal Dream outfits!

So this is one of my favorite things to do when I am in a slump. It helps remind me f what could come from hard work ! So I have a couple of outfits for you today.

Out fit #1 Living in Arizona it is hot! So an essential to anyone's wardrobe is shorts. So this is my AZ everyday outfit....{I have already bought the shorts in a size smaller and I will post pictures of me in them as soon as I fit into them!} I am loving the farm chic tops!

Outfit #2 Dresses, I love dresses! So when I saw this dress I imagined going to Church and the Temple and everything in it!

Outfit #3 A swim suit. In the early summer we live in the pool. I love the fact that swim suits have swim shorts for them. I would love to look super cute in this {wink wink}

Outfit #4 Another church outfit. Skirts are fun too!

Outfit #5 My last one I promise! Everyone needs a great pair of pants and a cute top! { Can you tell this might be something I do alot!}

So what do you think? What are your dream outfits? This is one thing that keeps me motivated, why? because there is nothing greater then feeling good in what you are wearing! I can't wait to see what your dream outfits are!
Quote of the day:
"There has come to you as your birthright something beautiful and sacred and divine. Never forget that. Your Eternal Father is the great Master of the universe. He rules over all, but He also will listen to your prayers as His daughter and hear you as you speak with Him. He will answer your prayers. He will not leave you alone."
Gordon B. Hinckley, "Stay on the High Road," Ensign, May 2004, 112
Love ya all!

Super Duper long post from a lazy blogger....

I know I know I have been off but; every time I look at my blog I love looking at the picture of my goals list. So with that being said this post will hold all my goals from the last week that I didn't post plus this weeks goals and Menu....

FRIDAY: Goal: Do something nice for hubby.....
So poor hard working hubby has been excluded from the snacks he likes. So for this Sunday I had to make Brownies for my Scripture Super Star Primary Kids. Now my hubby loves a good brownie but he loves the crest more then anything. So I cut out circles and then bagged up all the crest and gave it to him with a little love note when he was craving a snack .

Saturday and SUNDAY GOAL: Find something that makes you laugh and post about... Find something that inspires you and post about it.
I had to combine these goals because, I have become obsessed with flash mob dances! They make smile and inspire me to move so here are some pretty cool ones.

And the most famous one of all...OPRAH!!!

If you watch them all you now understand why I love it.....

MONDAY GOALS: Make a Menu plan announce next weeks goals.

Menu Plan:

Monday: Stroganoff

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Marinara Chicken and Veggies

Wednesday: Parmie Pasta

Thursday: Veggie and Beef Tacos

Friday:BBQ Pizza

Saturday: BBQ pulled pork baked potatoes.

Monday: Make a menu for the week .
Tuesday: Find a dream outfit that you always wanted to wear and post it.
Wednesday: Find something that makes you laugh and post about it
Thursday: Do something nice for you and post about it.
Friday: Do something outside with your family post it
Saturday: Find the funny things in life and post 5 funny things about you
Sunday: Find an inspiring song and post it.

Now you know I can't leave you without a good quote:
"Success is usually earned by persevering and not becoming discouraged when we encounter challenges. Paul Harvey, the famous news analyst and author, once said: 'Someday I hope to enjoy enough of what the world calls success so that someone will ask me, "What's the secret of it?" I shall say simply this: "I get up when I fall down" ' (quoted in Marvin J. Ashton, Conference Report, Oct. 1981, 126)."

Today's goal is this
Find something that motivates you make a collage and post it. So above you can see my collage. I think that it is self explanatory, but just in case you were wondering:
THE TAPE MEASURES: I find it more motivating to lose inches then weight. They come off faster and mean clothing rewards.
THE WRAP DRESS: Lets face when it comes to cup size I am huge. So when wearing a wrap dress I instantly think of a 1940's overweight house wife. I love the style I would love to look nice in it.
THE DRESS SLACKS: I love dress slacks and would love to wear some where you can't see my love handles.
THE MULTITUDE OD BABIES: I want a large healthy family....I love this pictures has children of every race; because I want to adopt one day.
THE SWIM SUITS: This year on my family vacation I would like to look nice and not like a beach whale.
THE LADY RUNNING: I will never be her since I hate to run, but I want to look like I love it!
HEALTHY FOOD: I want this to be a habit... don't tell anyone but I think I am going quit sugar..mostly it will be grieved!
THE LADY HOLDING HER PREGNANT BELLY: I want to be her. I can't without healthy living!
So what are your motivations? What do you want to be?

Yesterdays goal was to do something for yourself. Well it has been a long time since I made anything for me so I deiced to make fabric coasters.I used a tutorial I found at Paper Butterfly {awesome blog} I have this black and white material that I love and I backed it with hot pink material. So what do you guys think?

I hope everyone took some time out to figure out their muse and did somthing for them!

I would like to end with a quote:

"The past is behind--we must learn from it. The future is ahead--we must prepare for it. The present is now—we must live in it."
Thomas S. Monson, "Three Gates to Open," CES Fireside for Young Adults, Jan. 14, 2001



I am in a slump!

I have started writing this post twice now. I feel that the first two where to dark and I really don't like where that is leaving me. Have you ever had one of those days where the thoughts in your head just feel horrible? That has been my day... I am in need of a do-over! I haven't been able to meet my goals because Megs has been sick and lets face I too am sore!
I have just had one of those days! Maybe its all the gifts I am making for baby showers, or the fact that people think I need to hear " at least you have one" {Which I know I am so blessed for, but when you have a dream of having a large family....I will just save it for another post and leave it at that} or the fact that even my child is noticing all of her friends Mommy's have a baby in their tummy. I don't know I think I am in one of those I am going to take a day mood. As most know from my last weeks post I had a cyst rupture. It hurt, but it has also lead to some very interesting comments; like I know you are pregnant. {SIDE NOTE: I have had a cyst rupture before, it was right after my honey moon and 5 weeks later I found out I was pregnant} so I know that what being said is in good intentions but, in the end it has effect me more then I thought it would. Does anyone know what I mean? I feel completely alone on this. I just don't think lighting will strike twice in this case, last time I was healthy this time I am not and that is just the simple facts. SHOULD I LET MYSELF HOPE OR PROTECT MY HEART? I am just in a down mood. I feel like I am on a never ending cycle I keep trying to find my energy fountain but I haven't. Any way well that's it. I am going to put on my BIG GIRL PANTIES, smile and not give up. I did have an aha moment in finally realizing that this was going to be harder then I thought but I guess that was bound to happen.
So I thought I would leave you with something to give some good feelings my favorite a nice quote:Even when you feel the truth of [the] capacity and kindness of the Lord to deliver you in your trials, it may still test your courage and strength to endure. The Prophet Joseph Smith cried out in agony in a dungeon:
“ ‘O God, where are thou? And where is the pavilion that covereth thy hiding place?’(D&C 121:1–2). . . .
“The Lord’s reply has helped me and can encourage us all in times of darkness. Here it is: ‘My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes’ (D&C 121:7–8).”
Henry B. Eyring, “Adversity,” Ensign, May 2009, 24–25 {THIS MADE ME SHED A TEAR}
