Summer so far

Our Summer so far:: 

I've been eating better, counting calories and working my way to being healthy and of course trying to lose some weight. 
I've been at it for 20 days straight, logging all of my meals with the 'My Fitness Pal' app and I've been taking walks with some girls from work as well as bike rides with J and more! 
I keep track of my journey with the apps  My Fitness Pal, Run Keeper and I just got myself a Fit Bit! If you would like to help keep me motivated and share any tips, advice and POSITIVE feedback I would love it! 

I've been trying to keep J busy, trips to the park, neighborhood pool, the library, flour painting and more 

J got his FIRST HAIRCUT! Adam needed one and well, J was looking a bit girly haha. He wasn't very excited about it but was happy to get a sucker at the end. 

Chomping on some apples!  He has a mouth full of teeth at just 18months! Whoa man. 

After 15days of counting calories and working out.. I felt horrible because I wasn't seeing results on the scale.. It all changed when I saw a lower number! Woo hoo! 

If you've been watching the news you know about the storms in Nebraska.. We had a scare Friday and well sadly our Car didn't take the baseball sized hail too well! Adam had gone to run an errand and couldn't get the car under anything. Luckily he wasn't in the car or driving when the hail hit. 

My husbands company has a Company Picnic every year. This year J was able to enjoy some of the activities! We didn't win anything at the drawings but J enjoyed a few rides. Don't worry, he is buckled up nice and tight. 

I'm still going strong keeping my self on track and trying to eat better! 
I allow myself a cheat day during the week and my husband has been helping to keep me motivated. I can already tell a difference in my skin, my mood, my energy levels and some of my clothes are fitting better! 

I LOVE grapefruit, sadly with all the acidic fruits I've been eating my mouth has been hurting! Ouch! 

We've been to the pool a few times, it's about a 15 minute walk from my house. J  doesn't know a stranger and will play with all of the kids and sit for a chat with anyone who is willing to listen to him babble. What a sweet boy. 
I bought a front bike seat called the ' Wee ride' we've gone on a few bike rides and J loves it! It's nice to change the exercise up a bit. 

 This was before his haircut of course. Uncle Jeff requested a Mohawk.. Js hair was pretty long and he just got a curly Mohawk instead haha. 

We've been keeping busy around here, I've been trying to 'disconnect' from social media and such and focus on spending my days with J and having family time. That's why I've been slacking on the posts as well.. 

Thanks for catching up with us!
