Back To School

Well, I am going to do it.  Classes start on Tuesday.  I'm going back to school. Yikes.

I hated being in school, classes sucked.  Being in a classroom was just not for me.  This time, I'm trying all online classes.  University of Phoenix has a new student and hopefully I will kick it's ass.  I'd take all the good vibes you could send over!

I have a little office/classroom set up in the basement.  All new school supplies.  I'm geeked. Does that make me a geek? hm....

Moms Gone Wild!

This past weekend we went back down to Indy to hang out with my inlaws to celebrate my, hubs, B's and our nephews birthday. On Sat night though...I went out---like woah.

My friends in Indy, who I met because of a breast feeding support group, and I all ditched our kids and husbands and got a hotel room downtown.  We had a nice dinner and then.....well, lets just say I ended the night riding a mechanical bull, in a dress and woke up feeling like complete shit.

But, it was SO worth it! I have not laughed so hard in so long.  I miss my girls so much, so thankful I met them and am so thankful that we have such easy ways to stay connected!   I know we won't do that every time I see them, but I bet we do it at least once or twice a year. 

Mommas gone wild--hellz yes.

Weight Watchers **updated**

Ya know how I'm like a super fantastic blogger?  I'm that good at Weight Watchers too.

I started WW in January when my son was 3 months old.  Over the next 5 months I dropped 29lbs without doing much of anything.  ( Well, wait, I went from 217lbs when I delivered B down to around 155lbs. Too bad I didn't start WW when I weighed that awful 217lbs! I started somewhere around 185lbs) . Anyways, I  worked out a bit, but only because I needed to get out of the house and I ate whatever I wanted.  Pumping and being able to feed an army of infants was awesome. I could eat fast food and drink regular soda and still lose weight.  Now that I've gone down from pumping 8x/day to 2 or 3x/day this whole WW thing isn't so easy.

Since we moved and my sisters wedding a few weeks ago I've gained about 5lbs back.  Not so bad for not paying attention to what I eat at all and eating mostly crap.  Okay, I get it.  I can't eat Volcano Burritos everyday, but gosh, they are SO good...mmm. No! I will not get one today.

I'm pumping my boobs now, getting every.last.drop out, hopefully i can do a #2 and then go.  (gross right? no. this is how you do when you are a WW member, it's not just me! i promise.) Hopefully things went at least a little better this past week, but I'm not really counting on it.

This coming week, I will track. I WILL TRACK.....for at least 3 days.  and I will only have fast food once. or twice. crap.

**update **

So, by some crazy act of God, I am down 2.2lbs this week.  I only think that's because I pooped and pumped the bewbs before going.  Thank you diet coke for your help in that matter.

I've already had fast food twice. Sick, seriously why do I love it SOOO much?!  We're about ready to go on a road trip, then have a family get together, then a night out with some friends and then the trip back home....HELLLOOOOOOOOOO WEIGHT GAIN!  meh.
