This blog is dedicated to random nonsense: product reviews (i'm always trying something), weight loss attempts, general observations, movies, books, pictures, thoughts, feelings, and struggles that make up this extraordinarily ordinary life.

i quit weight watchers. that new points plus program is so convoluted. i barely have enough hours in the day as it is and now i needed to take 10 minutes to plug in the fat, protein, carbs, and dietary fiber of everything i eat just to find out how many points i'm consuming. no thanks. i was getting majorly stressed out. so, i started on the "Lose It" website which is totally free by the way...and they also have a free app for your iphone or android. all you have to do is stay within your daily caloric allowance (which is calcualted when you sign up after you enter your age, height, weight, etc-information) and you lose weight. simple as that. it's soooooo much easier to look at a box of something in the grocery store, see the calories and make a decision- rather than pull out your phone, find a signal, plug in 18 different things just to realize it's too many points and not worth it. it was just giving me major adgida and i couldn't take it anymore! and, clearly, this other route is working just fine since i'm still losing weight. sweet yo! check it out. :-)

my baby is going to be 7 months old

holy shit. 3 more days and i'll have a 7 month old. that's nuts. so, he hasn't started crawling yet, but he's rolling like nobody's business. he sits up all by himself- for about a month now. still only has his two bottom teeth, and he's definitely trying to talk. when he makes noises now- it's on purpose instead of just baby babble. like, he knows what he's doing when he does it and i can see it on his face.
in preparation for the next pregnancy, i'm still making an extra effort to lose weight and get healthy. i felt like totally crap during the last one- so it's imperative for me to be healthier for the next one cause i know that had alot to do with it. i'm down 17 lbs which isn't too shabby. Slowly but surely wins the race. that's about it. just thought i'd jot a few things down on here so when i remember that i forgot to write anything in his baby book- i can come back to this blog and scrape a few missing pieces together. don't judge me! raising a baby takes up a lot of my time. i'd have to schedule an appointment just to make time to write in that book...and in my defense i already wrote a few things in there. so, get off your high horse...
