Weekend Recap

Hey Pimps and Playas...or playa's and pimps...
How was your weekend?
Mine was one big ball of go here and get this and I forgot this and I need this....
That's my life peeps. I'm a non-stop momma and it's caught up to me and I'm tired!!

Friday I can't even remember what I did if I did anything other than I watched a movie and my hubby fell asleep. I watched the movie Bachelorette
Ehhh..It pretty much sucked. I love me some Rebel Wilson and her character made me want to rip my eyes out. Annoying!!
Saturday I got my butt outta bed early and pushed out another 10 miles. Holla!!
Excuse the morning face...it was early!
I felt awesome after that and then off to the grocery store I went with my mini's.
I came home and worked on my decluttering that I've been working on, and didn't I totally forget that we were suppose to be at a birthday party at 2. Yep I did. I felt like a complete idiot but hey it happens.
Sunday I updated my do, since the grays were poking through. Well word to the wise I left it on to long and now my hair is closer to black vs dark brown. Oh well I'll rock that shit!
Look at this mini..He has some mad skills, because I couldn't do that.
After my photo shoots and hair dying fiasco we headed over to my mom's for Easter #1.
Once we got to my mom's we played cards and feasted on dips. That was the theme of the get-together. Make your favorite dip and this momma watched what she ate because I wasn't going to throw away that 10 miler.
My goofballs
Yesterday and today were catch up and trying to get some rest because I'm still so dang tired.
 I'm hoping to get a run in on Wednesday and Saturday, since we have Easter #2, 3, and 4 this weekend. And if there's a party there's lots and lots of food. Nobody ever goes or leaves hungry.
That's my weekend and week. Wishing you a great day!

Finish The Sentence...Part Dos

Hey all friends, family, stalkers...
I'm linking up with the fabulous Holly and Jake today.
If you didn't see the first linkup I did with them you can find it

1. If calories didn't count, I would eat... Queso Queso Queso, margaritas, chocolate. Yep life would be complete then
2. On my Prom night.... Well I'm sure I got all dressed up (because I love to dress up), and danced my ass off but felt like a loser because I went sans a date. All good though because really guys don't know how to dance and I'm not the type that likes to have my personal dance space invaded.
3. When I go to the store, I always buy....bread, milk, eggs, bananas, MIO energy
4. Family functions typically... depends on the family. If it's my mom's than it's game night and trash talk, if it's my dad's movie and trash talk, my in-laws sleeping lots of sleeping. You can tell why I'm the life of the party and why my hubs is not.
5. I think my blog readers... I have people who actually read my randomness....ha ha..just kidding..I'm thankful that they take the time to read my randomness!
6. I'd much rather be.....  a self made millionare so I could spend my time with my kids and doing charity work, oh and maybe be able to workout oh and world peace.
7. I have an obsession with.... hair and mascara, and reality shows!. Although I do not do my hair on a daily basis I love it and like it to look nice (even if it is up in a "I dream of Genie Bun" 90% of time), I love trying new mascara to pump up these baby horse eyelashes I have, and really who doesn't like to watch train wrecks on TV. Love it! 
8. My work friends.... hmmmm I'm self employed therefor no work friends :( But that also means no work poltics :), which makes me a happy girl.
9. When I created my Facebook account.... I never realized how time consuming it could be but I'm thankful for it. The word of mouth and visuals have helped build my business oh and my need to stalk the assholes I went to high school with.
10. My least favorite word is... I have lots the "C" word that some people use instead of bitch. I just hate that word and panties...eeeshhhh. I cringe when I walk into VS and they ask this, it's called underwear.
11. I really don't remember.... anything much of importance. Now random shit well I'm all over that. Like the name of the bone for the knee, or celebrity gossip or what happened at so & so's house 5 years ago.
12. Justin Bieber.... Ok I will admit to liking a couple of his songs but I'm really over his over the top bow to me craziness. There's only one queen of craziness and that's Britney Bitch!!
That's it in a nutshell....Have a great day!!

Onto more important news what's been going on in my LIFE!!!
Last Friday I took the munchkins minus Lil C to see the spring show.
(L-R~S, Titus, Bella)
S is Bella's friend from school. The spring show contains a couple different mini shows of dance. Peter and the Wolf, Grand Central, Four Swans, Feet, Dying Swan, Cowtown Love. These dances range from classical ballet, modern, jazz, and contemporary. The kids loved it.
This little man loved the show!! Thank god it will save me therapy down the road when he hates me for torturing him with art appreciation.
Saturday is usually my long run day but since it's been snowing like crazy here we decided to defer till Sunday afternoon. So Saturday I did the normal run around like a crazy person and then it was double date night with Miss Hide-A-Key, her hubs, my hubs, and me. We decided to go see Identity Thief and get some grub.

Date Night Selfie
Sunday I had to photo shoots to do and then I was able to pound out some pavement before the sun went down. It was rough. Holy crap drinking the night before not a great idea. No matter still pounded out some mileage! 
Since I ran on Sunday I skipped my Monday run which was ideal since it was again snowing...
Wisconsin Girl problems I tell ya! Ha
So onto Wednesday and kicking out a 6'er in freezing cold temps. Check out the feels like temp 5 degrees. Who the H does that. This girl and it's paying off. Slowly ever so slowly but with ever step I'm getting stronger and faster. BOOYAAAHH!!!

So what's on the agenda for this weekend....well my running girl has left me for sunny so Cal for the week so I'll be running hans solo on Saturday!
Sunday I have again photo shoots and Easter #1 of the wonderful family gatherings. Wish me luck that I don't die in a dip coma!! That's the fun theme of this Sunday's gathering all different kind of dips. Beer dip, Artichoke dip, dessert dip, veggie dip...Oh my dipness!!!
Have a great weekend!!

Confused...well maybe

Alright peeps, so this good ole blog of mine is under construction. I'm trying to be blogtastic but it's really friggn hard. But I'm working on it. First things first I wish I could be as creative and cheekey as others with their blog title. I feel like "Looking into the mirror" was too....well stuffy. I'm a fun loving, scarcastic girl that is on a weight loss journey, as well as raising three kids...four if you count my hubs, I craft, I'm a photographer with a slice of crazy....so help a sista out.
What do you think I should call this little piece of sanity...
Any suggestions are warmly welcome.
I've just changed it to my "My Crazy Life"
I've thought about some others:
Nicki B That's Me.
Mommy To Three.....
Fluffy To Fabulous
Running Like I'm Being Chased
If you have an idea help me out. If you like one of the above let me know!!

In other news last Saturday I busted out 13 miles like a beast.
Yeah I'm not the fastest but I don't care I still did it!

My half is 65 days away plenty of time for training but I was at 12 miles and figured....eh..why not one mile more..I'm kind of stubborn like that. So holla I'm a beast..now to get that time done to my goal.
After my wonderful run and the greatness of grocery shopping and cleaning I was able to relax with my running girl Hide-a-key....
Man I look tired and need to fill in those brows. Thanks mom for making me pluck my catapillers.

Yum Yummmy....I love Margaritas...I should preface that I don't drink very much because of running but this was sinfully good...
We had dinner and then went and saw Silver Linings Playbook

Can I just say how yummy Bradley Cooper is and Jennifer Lawerence isn't so bad herself (no I am not a lesbian but I can appreciate a pretty girl and not be a caddy bitch about it.
I loved the movie, although the beginning had me feeling like I needed to be on some crazy meds...I couldn't sit still it was nuts but then the calm happened and I was good. (I should preface I'm not putting anyone down that is on said meds as I was on them at one time as well...don't hate)
I then had a wonderful Sunday with two babies to photograph and then some rest and relaxation...yeah right..I have three little ones remember.
My week has been unenventful. I've had a couple day care kiddos sick, editing pictures, cleaning the pig sty and only was able to run once in which I tweaked my hip..bugger cut me break..
But life is full of roller coasters so I will rest up the hip and hopefully pound out 13 miles on Sunday after more photo shoots.
Here is a little funny for those of you whom don't run and for those of you whom are runners but get flack for it like I do..

Ha ha...Have a great weekend...Share a little love and leave me a comment!!

Finish This Sentance Link Up

I'm linking up with the fabulous Miss Holly from Where we can live like Jack and Sally.
If you don't read her blog she is hilarious. It seriously is the highlight of my day......wait what does that say about my life..ha


Just finish these sentences (or just the ones you want)....

1. People always tell me....I'm funny, I wear my heart on my sleeve, I'm a party or maybe that's just what the people in my head tell me.
2. In the movie based on my life...I would be played by a latino Kristin Wiig, and have an awesome soundtrack. It would be raw and epic and maybe Christian Grey would be my husband.
3. Typically, I end up regretting....my honesty. I'm blunt and sometimes with not enough tact it can come across bitchy.
4. I always ask to leave off the....olives..yucky yuck yuck, yuck
5. Kim and Kanye really...I'd be happy if she was able to find someone that could love her for her and really who is really more obnixous than Kanye (don't get me wrong I love me some Kardashians, in fact I'm the sister that was left in WI)
6. My Parents always reminded me...that life can through you curve balls and through their struggles I have become a compassionate, hard-working momma.
7. Every single day I.....wake up and feel blessed to live the life I do. (no joke)
8. This one time in College..e(hhh sorry I didn't go to college although I did frequent the party scene enough that people thought I went there so I guess I would say) I got so drunk and the room was spinning that I thought the smashing pumpkins poster was talking to me.
9. My grossest habit is...hmmmm....not sure
10. My latest white lie was...I never lie (there you go)
11. I know all the words to...every song I hear...so what if I make them up. It's my party.
12. When I grow up...I want to be a motivational speaker, a nurse, an artist, a etsy seller, a areobics instructor, a stripper (wait how did that one get in there)
13. Sexy time is...a kidless date night of dinner and a movie followed by......my husband falling asleep.
14. I will never, ever...say never, ever...you never know the future.
15. I think it's hilarious...when someones laugh is funnier than the joke they told

That Equals How Much!!

50lbs looks like this....

Hmmmmm or what about this.....
He's not quite 50 lbs but what's 5lbs....

50lbs is the amount I have lost so far in this journey. I woke up this morning and hopped on the scale and it made me smile. I'm officially in "onderland" as the cool kids call it.

Here are some progression pics- April 2012-250lbs...My baby just turned a year and I thought that sweatshirt was big on me. Pictures don't lie people....


So I guess that shirt was really working because again I thought that I didn't look that bad that was after 25lbs lost and now onto the current..


50lbs lost. The second pic I tighten the shirt so I could see the improvement better.

So now you know what 50lbs lost can look like. Like I previously stated I still have 50+ that I want to lose to get to my goal weight 140 lbs and then seek wealth and fame. LOL Not really but I think it would be cool to be on People's January edition that they put out on people that have lost a ton of weight but for now I'm happy inspiring others.

What's stopping you from reaching your goals. Because I can tell you it wasn't easy, I had to shut that doubt whisperer down. It was hard but I kept at it. I kept pushing through.
I started running/walking =wogging 9 miles a week. That's 3 miles 3x a week. Now I run the majority of my 20 miles a week. I stop when I get winded and I start again. I push through the pain that my body says I should feel. But I keep moving, step by step I keep moving forward to my goals.

And you know what once you grab for it its right there. You will have set-backs, you will not love it everytime you do it but remember that awesome feeling. Bottle it, capture it, whatever you need to do to remember it and when you feel like you don't want to and when you feel like you can't remember that feeling, and that alone will push you to contiue on.....

What are your goals? What's stopping you?

It Was A Whine/Wine Weekend

Hey y'all.
My week and weekend were a whirlwind.
Last week Monday I set a goal of running 20 miles in a week.
Now where I live the weather is all over the place. One day it will be 35 degrees and sunny the next day -12 it really sucks so I try to just live day by day but I knew I needed to kick it up a notch.
So 20 miles in week should be easy.
Monday was soso it;s my recovery run and it was super hard. I was cold, and tired and lack luster.
I did 6.38 miles which is incrediable werid for me because I would normally push out a couple more steps to get an even number.
Wednesday was el sucko!!! It was snowing and it felt like I had velcro strapped to my shoes. I was only able to pump out 3 miles. Which leaves how many miles do I have to do on Saturday......11. yep I can.
Saturday was going to have be an ealy run also....
So everything was set up to be horrible......BUT!!!!
It wasn't!
So alarm set..yep that's AM people.
4 Am run!!
I got ready got fueled and was out the door to meet my running partner at 4am.
I had brought along some shot blocks to fuel me through my run. I usually hit a wall at mile 8 so I knew I would need to refuel at mile 7. I started out slow knowing that I had a long time to go until I finish. I starting running and just at about mile 3 this happened to me...
Yes a drunk well I'm not sure if he was a bum but regardless a big drunk scary guy invaded my personal space. I'm not sure what he wanted but I was not stopping as he was at least 6 ft tall and
as round as he was tall. He scared the crap outta me that I ran like the
Peace out scary old dude invading my personal space.
And I was off.....the rest of my run was pretty uneventful. Lots of gawkers wondering why in the hell someone is up before the crack of dawn to run!! Whateve's peeps. I had to get in my miles. I set a goal and I was for sure going to try and make that goal.
I made it home and felt AMAZING!!! No soreness what so ever. Thank you OsteoBiflex.

So I did it I ran 20.4 miles.
And then I went out and had some Wine!!!

That's my weekend in a nutshell. How was yours? What are you goals?
