happy happy...

...Wednesday! I've got to be positive about today because yesterday didn't go nearly as planned. Unfortunately. We went to my mom's house for dinner, but then she was too sick to do anything else. (which I'm still not sharing because I don't want to jinx it)

Seems like everyone I know is sick. 3 week ago, Meghan came down with a cold and I got it the day after. Woot. It was not fun, especially since this was the first time Meghan's been sick besides the sniffles. I wholly attribute that to her being breastfed, as far as her never being sick. Didn't save me, I've been sick a couple of times since she was born ;) At any rate, she was miserable and it was not fun with a sick baby. She got better in about a week and I expected to get better as well, but I'm still battling a ridiculous cough. Lacie and Dylan were sick before us, so I think we got it from them, and Lacie's cough lasted 3 weeks and she cracked a rib from coughing! So I'm hoping I'll be better by this weekend. Not that we're doing anything special, I just don't want to be sick any more!

I feel great besides the cough and throat burning :( I've exercised at least 30 minutes a day for the last 10 days in a row, which is awesome! I'm proud that even though sometimes I gain a little bit, I still keep with it. It used to be so easy to get discouraged, but I'm not beating myself up about slipping up while eating. It's not the end of the world if I eat a cookie, I know it's not what I should be eating. But I'm not going to let a cookie deter me. I am strong!


I mentioned that we went to my mom's for dinner last night. She made pasta and home made spaghetti sauce, salad with oil and balsamic, Italian bread and chocolate chip cookies. (that's where the cookie reference came from) I had my sauce with green beans and lots of salad, no bread and part of a cookie, which I spilt with Meghan. :) Even though we didn't do what we planned, it was nice to see her and her husband, Jim. We don't see them very often. I wish Drew and I could do family dinners with our parents, sometimes I feel left out because we don't live in the same town as our families any more. If we ever get a house, I think I'll have to start hosting family dinner, then everyone will be obligated to visit! ;)

Speaking of dinner, I have no clue what we're eating tonight...I'd better get on that!


  1. Hi Allison - So glad I found your blog by reading the comments over on Della's blog (18underoneroof)! Good luck on your weight loss journey. I've been there, gotten to goal weight, gotten back on the weight loss journey, gotten to goal weight, back on weight loss journey....well, you get the point. Multiply that by about fifteen years of being overweight and you could say I'm a yo-yo weight gainer. I am currently losing baby weight again after my third child and am about thirty pounds away from my realistic goal - not to be confused with the lower number where I would REALLY like to be.'s nice to "meet" you and I look forward to reading your blog.

    1. Hi Pam! Thanks for stopping by and checking me out! I did read some of your blog and noticed you haven't updated in awhile, must be that new baby (congrats!) and taking care of your littles ;) Della is actually my hubby's aunt and a great inspiration to me during this weight-loss part of my life, I am so thankful to have a role model like her! Nice to "meet" you too! :D


thanks for stopping by, leave me a little note!
