Happy Monday loves...
I hope you all had a great weekend...
Mine consisted of...
Friday- I took all 5 kids to Bounce Mania. Which is an indoor area where they have bouncy's set up for kids to jump in and they also have an area to play sports like soccer in. We stayed a little over 2 hours and that was plenty for me to say the least. After two bouncy's fell over and I actually caught one from squashing kids, I thought it was a great time to head home. Needless to say that will not be on my Friday night agenda ever again!.
After we got home we decided to bust out some family guns! We may or may not of had a contest of who could do the best burpees...hint- I didn't win!!
Saturday- Marked my Angel son Alex's 13th birthday. Alex was born at 21 1/2 weeks due to premature rupture of membranes (early labor). To lose a child is so devastating and I wonder everyday, what he would be like and how my life would be different if he was here. My life has taken many paths, some good, some bad but overall I wouldn't change a thing except to have Alex in my life. It's amazing how someone so small can have such an impact on your life. I was lucky to have had him in my belly for over 21 weeks, I'm the only one that ever felt his movement and him truly "living", and for that I'm am thankful. Please hug your kids and if by chance you know someone that has had a pregnancy or infant loss, let them know you care. On Saturday, I had so many sweet thoughts sent my way from my friends and family. People remembering Alex, is such a great gift to me. We celebrated Alex's day by taking flowers to the cemetery and making him a birthday cake. We shared a lot of "what ifs" and of course missed him like crazy.
Sunday...Was a lazy day...the day went quick, too quick.
30 Day Challenge Update.. I rocked out the weekend, I got a few workouts in and I didn't cheat at all!! I'm still going strong with the dairy and gluten free. Like I said on Friday Vlog, I had a significant loss so far but I'm going keep that to myself for right now. Just know changes are happening all thanks to Adie, for leading me in the right directions and helping me make some changes. If you need help with getting healthy make sure you check her out, she's running another challenge in a week or so.
Last night I decided to see if I could find anything about what my ideal weight should be. I know the whole BMI thing and stuff like that, but I wanted to see if what I think my goal weight should be compared to the "what they say" my goal weight should be.....
So here's what I found...Give them a try if you want. I personally thing the Ideal Weight 1 is more correct than 2, but you let me know what you think or if you've found a better one.
Warning- Please take what these calculators with a grain of salt, remember they are not your doctor nor do they know what YOUR body type is. I will never be a super tiny woman...so I definitely need to be careful when I use generic calculators like these. You know what's healthy and muscle weighs more than fat..
Calculate Ideal Weight 1
Calculate Ideal Weight 2
Also, I'm still open to questions for my Friday Vlog's ...you can leave questions in the comment area or email me firstname.lastname@example.org (if you want to be anonymous, just let me know)
