First Christmas

Christmas was so much fun I couldn't have asked for a better first Christmas for Reina. She had so much fun, and even opened a ton of presents on her own. Reina is also sitting up on her own and has been for about a month now! She is getting so big and growing up so fast! She is just about to turn 6 months, January 9th, and I can't believe it!!

Hey lovelies!

So I had it all planned out I was going to write a nice big blopost with great pictures for you and guess what wifey had to take the camera to work and I forgot to upload any pics so I could update you all.

I am sowwy (sorry)! Anyway I guess I shall update you on other news. Tiffany and I have been discussing and tossing around the idea of me homeschooling Reina. I really love the idea and wifey does too. You may be thinking its to early to worry about that but I disagree! I want to be fully prepared and have all the knowledge I can before the time comes.

I love my daughter and I want her to have the best education she can have and I feel I can give that to her I know a lot of you are probably saying "wait what about her social activities?!" There are plenty of groups and other mothers who homeschool that I can get together with and also she will be in other activites such as sports and ballet etc. I also don't want to limit her to other kids her same age she may not relate to them as well as she would relate to kids of other ages as well. There are so many different reasons I have for wanting her to be homeschooled and not go to public school.

Also a fun thing for me will be decorating a room or area of the house for her to be taught in and Tiffany came up with a good idea to teacher her outside, I love that idea and I think what I will do is teach different subjects outside to make it more fun.

these are a few rooms I like I LOVE the organization!!

I also want to keep it fun and do things that she will look back on and remember she loves! I want to use things that are in everyday life that she will use and relate to in life. The only thing I am worried about is when she gets to like high school level. But I will conquer that once I get closer to that.

I have so many ideas for things to do I need to right them down as they come to me! I have a notebook I am going to start with ideas and a list of things I can slowly buy to put in a bin to save for when the time comes to start the schooling. I think we are going to keep it pretty structured as far as having set times and planning out weeks and things like that.

I hope she enjoys it, loves it and has enthusiasm for it!

Weight loss

So I haven't really told many people but I am working on a plan to get super fit. (lol I have to laugh a little bit when I say that) Basically I am working with a body builder to get back into shape and its really working so far. I have been at this for just about 2 weeks and I have already lost 9lbs I started at 127lbs and now I am at 118lbs! Its so great and its not messing with my milk so I can still feed baby!

I really have a love hate relationship with the diet part of the change lol I have had to eliminate a lot of things I love the first and mainly being carbs oh how I miss my delicious carbs! But most of the time its not such a big deal just when I get the craving.

Anyway I am going to get with my trainer on Sunday so we can get a weight lifting routine together. I am a little nervous not because I'll be weight lifting but I actually will have to commit to a gym which I don't like to do because I am not sure I will like that particular gym.. SO POO!

I am going to add a few pictures and I am very hesitant to do so especially the one from right after having the baby but I want to share my journey with you all.


I can say that I am proud of myself for losing all the baby weight plus 9lbs under I only have a little more to go to my goal weight and definitely a long way to go on toning but I am overall like I said proud and I am happy I am sticking with it.

To me the picture above shows a lot of difference and change I have learned my weak spot (my belly) and figured out my strength is my arms they are easy for me to tone. I have learned more about nutrition and about my self control and my own weakness. Also I am wanting to help others in their own weight loss journey what ever it may be for!
