Dear Mack: Daddy always seems to go first all the time, So this week you are first. You are becoming more and more testy and challenging with discipline. Mommy doesn't like putting you in time outs and I don't like having to punish you. So, be a good girl this week and listen to mommy. You have completely wow'd me on the other hand with you potty training. You have been doing so well and going poop for the first time at school and at home. Dear Ian: I love our nights on the couch after Mack is in bed and we watch our favorite tv shows. I didn't make it till the end of shows this week without falling asleep first, but there is always next week. Dear Directv DVR: I'm so glad you are there to record our shows, because I would never be awake for any of them. Dear Spring: it's nice to see no snow in our forecast the last 2 weeks. So, please be sure to continue to bring us sun and rain showers only. Dear Mack: I can't wait to go on the easter egg this hunt and have your real first easter this year.

I'm warning you... this is a rant. But.. you might feel the same way.
I can't tell you how sick I am of cleaning pee of the toilet and floor. You would think after 28 years my other half could point, shoot and aim. I'm I wrong about this?
I nag and complain about it, but then it ends in a stupid comment from the other end and then I get pissed and walk away sometimes laughing on how stupid it is we are arguing over pee pee on the floor.
What do you other woman do about this? Or is your other halves better trained?
I might have to make him sit down on the toilet if no improvement has been made. The one thing that get's me is that they can find a tinier hole at any hour of the day, moon or shine, but yet the huge porcelain bowl is unattainable for them to hit.

Dying eggs is one of my favorite Easter traditions.

Exciting things happening in the potty training department. Mack has been able to drop a duce at school and at home this week. We are down to pull-ups only this week at night time. What a relief and I'm so proud of my little girl. boy, the sure do grow up fast.
While we are on the poop subject, have you ever read or gotten your hands on the book called "Everyone poops book"
It is a strange book, but it's a great book to encourage your little one to poop. Mack loves to look at it on the potty.
Enough Poop talk for one post.

Weight loss is one of those things that just takes work. I recently, meaning last Thursday, had my IUD removed. I think this was one of the many contributors to not being able to loose that much weight and only pounds at a time. Ever since I've had it removed I feel so much better physically and emotionally. However, I've been more tired then normal the last 4 days and kinda in la la land sort to speak.
It's amazing how messed up your body gets when hormones are taken away. I feel just odd a little bit the last few days but that is ok.
Also, this week I've felt inspired. I have two favorite McFatty Post blogs I love to read.
The Heir to Blair - Blair is so honest about herself and her Journey. Love, Love her.
Mom-Nom - Tiffany has been on a system called Medifast for 14 weeks and has almost lost 50 pounds! She is truly an inspiration and OMGeeee she is looking good ladies. Pop on over to her blog and see how she is doing it.
Weight loss to Date 8.4 pounds
Weight left to loose 56.6 pounds left
Set backs for me this week are getting my IUD pulled feeling out of whack and my emotions all over the place. My stomach has been bloated and uncomfortable since last Thursday.
However, I visited the gym this week 3 times. I trained on the elipitcal and treadmill at the gym and an extra run after dinner one night a mile and half.
This week I burned 1,300 calories from 3 days at the gym and a 1.5 mile run.
I'm so pumped this week and cannot wait until next week. I'm planning on hitting the gym 5 days this week.

Some Morning's I get to have 20 minutes or so before the peanut wakes up. It's not every morning, but on occasion I get that time. It's nice to have a cup of coffee in silence, write a blog post, read my favo blogs, or just sit in silence and watch the news. To have 20 minutes of silence before the hustle begins in the morning for preschool and work is so nice sometimes. I get to think about the day in peace, maybe write up a post (ahem like now) or catch up on my favorite blogs. Whatever it is I decide to do, it's nice to have that time to myself. The man is off to work already and it's just me and Mack in the morning's.
Sometimes I wish I could stay at home in my Pj's all day with Mack, but this woman here lives real life I guess and goes to work because I need to. Which is ok, I get the morning routine with Mack and she gets to go to preschool and be with her friends all day. I'm glad I'm a working mom, because she loves going to school and I couldn't imagine keeping her home all day with me.
P.S. Do you have silence by yourself? What time of day?

First of all I'm sorry for the late post, I've been so stinking busy.
Things are getting easier and easier and I'm sticking to it. You know when things just click, they just CLICK!!
I've been going to the gym the last week every week day on my lunch. I would love to enter in on a saturday, but maybe I should make it a non-gym workout day and to a run, long walk with Mack, or soon very soon... swimming.
Cuz Bra's and Gal's it's getting warm here in Northern California. Finally.
In a way this week has been tough because I haven't gotten the results on the scale that I wanted and that is ok. Because I've been going to the gym and I regaining muscle, so their are times when the scale with go up and down when you add working out and weights into the mix. Maybe I will hold off on the weights and just do all cardio for the next 2 weeks. Actually, that is what I'm going to do.
Here is the run down Bloggeee's.
Total Weight loss this week 2.6 Pounds!
Weight Loss so far: 7.26 pounds
Weight left to loose 52.7 pounds
10 Pounds (April 10th)
20 Pounds (April 20th)
30 Pounds (May 20th)
60 Pounds (Jump Up N Down! Party)
I'm feeling good and proud of myself. Cheers to week #3.
