30 Day Shred Day 1 - To Do List.

Welcome to Day one of the 30 Day Shred!

This is a program designed by Jillian Michaels, and one of the programs I used back in 2012 to kick start my weight loss journey. Since 2012 I have lost over 70 lbs and given birth to the three most beautiful girls in the whole world.

I believe in this program, as it was one of the first programs I used and saw results! I'd love to have you join me on this journey!

Let's get started!

Before you begin the program, I believe it is essential to do the following 3 things.

  1. Take your measurements 
    • This is something I didn't do in 2012 and I regret it. I had to rely on the way I felt and I wasn't able to see numbers... This discouraged me quite a bit. So, take those measurements. 
  2. Take some Pictures! 
    • Take the pictures!!!!!! Even if NO ONE sees them but you, YOU  are worth it! 

  1. Identify a time that YOU will push play. 
    • What works for you? Does a 5 a.m. workout work best for you? How about after dinner and when the kids are in bed? What works for me, won't work for you and that's okay! 
Welcome to the journey, I can't wait to share this with all of you and see your progress!!

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Baby # 3, An Early Welcome to the World! Part 1.

If you follow me on social media, you were flooded with pictures of our tiny sweet princess last weekend, and I even did a quick post about her name. Now, that she's here and we've had our first pediatrician appointment, I thought i'd take a moment and share the story of her arrival.

I guess you could say the story of her earlier than expected birthday started at our anatomy ultrasound. During the ultrasound it was noted that our baby was measuring in the 25 percentile for gestational age. Even though I have a history of small babies, the doctor at the ultrasound place was concerned about her size so I was scheduled for monthly ultrasounds to check growth.

Pregnancy continued, baby was still measuring small but we were both growing. The weekend of September 17, we dropped the girls off with family and had a little #disneyside baby moon.  We stayed up late, watched movies, slept in, ate whenever and whatever we wanted... It was really a relaxing time. We also decided to go …

Baby # 3, An Early Welcome to the World. Part 2.

In case you missed it, here is Part 1

In part one, I talk about why we induced at 37 weeks, so if you start reading and question why we would welcome our baby girl into the world at only 37 weeks, please take a quick look at part 1.

Thursday arrived, it was the day we would check into the hospital to welcome our third baby girl. My husband decided to stay home from work. We had a list of last minute things to do, and then drop the girls off with their grandparents.

After we dropped the girls off, I tried really hard to take a nap. Unfortunately, all I could do was count baby kicks and pray we would be able to deliver her without use of a c-section. My only fear with a cesarean is that I wouldn't be able to hold my toddlers during the recovery, and I just couldn't bear the thought. I expressed that concern to my obstetrician and he assured me that he felt confident we would not need a c-section, but if at any point the baby was showing she wouldn't be able to handle the d…
