I saw a similar blog post from another blog, so thought I'd join in the fun and post. I've not blogged much this past year and I really hope to get back into that.
--Lights Camera Action!
I'm a huge movie Lover! We've been doing Netflix for awhile now and I really love that we can watch endless movies and tv shows instantly. Now the movies I list may not necessarily be new releases, just movies I've watched throughout the year of 2010. Being that the year was '10 I want to list 10 of each.
The Other Guys
Books I've Read
Okay I'll be the first to admit I've not read many books really since giving birth to my daughter over 4 years ago. I just had my little boy, Devin back in November plus I'm going to school and we also just got our own place so things are so crazy for me. But in 2011 I really want to get back into reading more and not just school text books.
On A Snowy Night
The Last Song
The Vampire Diaries
Dead Until Dark
So as you can see I've not read many books and actually I've not read many into completion that I've got listed here. But like I've said I really hope to Change that this coming year. I've got a few series that I really love to read.
Twilight Series (one book left!)
The "Anne" Series by L.M. Montgomery (currently on Anne of Avonlea
Charlaine Harris Series that's based on the " True Blood " series ( currently reading the first book, "Dead until Dark"
Little House on The Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder ( Currently on Book 2, which I think is titled " Farm Boy"
The Vampire Diaries the Complete Series
Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake Series
The Vampire Academy Series by Rachelle Mead
House of Night Series by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Kay Scarpetta Series by Patricia Cornwell, I've read several in the series and I love them.
Sandra Gulland's Historical Fiction Series based on Josephine Bonaparte, I've read the first two books in which they where fast reads. I read them while I was pregnant and actually my daughter's middle name is Josephine. I love that name.
Jesse Stone Series by Robert B. Parker
Okay so I think that's enough, I doubt I'll read half of these books, and some I've already started some but I this is a great selection of books.

So everyone I'm sure is making New Year's Resolutions for the upcoming year of 2011. I guess I'm no different. I had planned doing Weight Watchers because my insurance says you can do the plan without any cost to you. Well, I called the other day and Weight Watchers in my area doesn't do that in my area any longer. Talk about a huge let down!!!!!! Urgh....I really don't know much about the new plan to do it on my own. I may try to do it on my own using their website for awhile. Dunno, we'll see I suppose. But I defiantly want to learn how to eat better and learn to cook healthier meals for me and my family.
I've been seriously wanting to do some sort of workout from BeachBody, we'll since I had a C-Section 6 weeks ago I thought I'd start out something low key. So I decided to go with Turbo Jam. I thought I'd do a complete rotation of the program then maybe do something different. I'd love to eventually do all the program's. I'm just sooooo sick of feeling miserable and I'm so ready to start working on me. I know I can do it, heck I've done it before. It's just I guess I let things get the best of me. I'm so exhausted at times. Well I guess I've got the right to be, I mean goodness I'm a newly mother of not only a newborn but of a VERY HYPER ACTIVE 4 Year Old. Some days my daughters ADHD & her developmental Delays gets the best of me. it wears me soo down that all I want to do is just have a moment of complete silence. Anyhow, my Turbo Jam should be in the mail tomorrow!!!! I can't wait to start! What is 30 mins to an hour of time to myself. Don't I deserve that?!? My husband wants to start eating healthy so that's a good thing. We just moved so I'm still trying to get my husband to move my treadmill over here too. So who wants to start this Journey with me?

I finally got my financial aid yesterday, so last night my husband took me to get an iPad. I'm using it as a backup to my laptop. My laptop crashed back in April-- my birthday to be exact. Well, my laptop hasn't been the same since. In addition my laptop battery won't hold a charge longer than 30 minutes. I can keep it plugged up in an electrical outlet, but something is messed up with the outlet that goes into the laptop. I'm going to call HP and see if it's covered under my warranty. I can use the iPad for school since I'm taking my classes online right now. I can probably get a tax right off as well. I must go, need to get in the shower and get in bed. Gotta be at my doctor's office at 8:30 am for a pre-op exam, Tuesday is my scheduled C-Section to have my little boy.

So I’ve not posted in forever!! I think the last time I’ve posted was in May. I Believe I was talking to you guys about me being pregnant and even posted a few things I’d love to have when the baby arrives.
Currently I’m 27 weeks & 5 Days pregnant. I found out the end of June That I’m expecting a little boy, Devin Elisha is what his name is going to be. I’ve thought of giving him another name but nothing has been decided yet. My husband and I can’t agree. urgh!!!!
I’ve Gotten just about everything we need for the baby. We still need to get a matteress for the crib, a swing—really wanting one of the swings that can go two different ways. I think they are called bassinet swings or something??? I am searching for a diaper cream that I bought when my Daughter was a baby, it is the only cream I will use. Will have to do a review on it soon. We need to get a car seat still and a stroller, thinking of a sit and stand, that way my DD can still benefit from it and a huge plus would be not having to chase my daughter down while pushing a stroller hahaha…….
they think something maybe wrong with the baby, spina bifida. However, I’m believing everything is fine. They have done 2 level 2 U/S and have found nothing wrong yet. Personally I think they have my due date off!!! I’ve been sick on and off again, ugh!!! I hate being sick, a good thing though so far I’ve only gained 4 lbs, but he is growing and I’m okay with not gaining much as long as he is growing like he needs to be. As of now they have my due date as November 24th, however the high risk doctor is going with the 11th of November. With a C Section I’m hoping to go much sooner!!!
We didn’t do a whole lot this year during the summer with me being pregnant, but I don’t mind I am more of a home body. Just a lot of everyday stuff and going to the 2 different baby doctors a lot. Playing with leah during the day. She started her 2nd year of Pre-School this past Monday, she loves school but it seems getting up early and staying so busy through out the day keeps her so tired. I had to keep her out of school last Thursday and Friday because of her getting a cold, took her to the doctor cause she had a fever, and found out her tubes came out. uggh! not sure if they will want to put tubes back in her ears or not. I really hope not, seems like she had more problems after the tube placement than before. Wished I knew how to help with the fluid though.
Everything on the marriage front is going great!! I think my husband and I are closer now than ever before. It is odd, or maybe I’m getting old. I’m just fine being at home with my kids and my husband and enjoying time with them. We started building a house and hopefully by spring time we can move in!!!
And Lastly thought I’d share what I’m currently reading. I don’t really care for the series, however I’ve watched all the movies and love reading books before I see the movies. Will try and remember to do a review on it once I’m done, speaking of reviews I’ve got a few product reviews that I plan to do over the next few days.

I really wished we had the room somewhere to set up my treadmill. Ugh!!! I hate that I'm having to pay to use a treadmill. Cause that is mostly what I use. Especially when I own a new treadmill that's not even been used a handful of times. I will think of something, maybe I can find some room in this house to put it. I hate having to live with family and not having room for my own stuff. It is sooooo frustrating. I'm hoping that this evening my husband and I can take our daughter to the playground this evening. The weather is suppose to be really nice today and I'd love to take her out so we can all enjoy the weather and perhaps I can get a walk in too! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

By taking action I bought a gym membership! I love my gym and couldn't be more happier with my choice. However, I'm trying to slowly work my way into a program. I hurt my back over a week ago when I picked leah up out of the grocery cart, I suppose my baby girl is getting too big for being in a grocery cart! My doctor also said I have a pretty severe kidney infection even threaten me with putting me in the hospitial. I've took more action by eating healthier, drinking more water. I'm planning on going to the gym after I get Leah on the school bus! I'm needing some sort of action plan on routine for loosing weight. Is there something I should be going by? I love using NIKE+ and using it to track my progress.
So what is your action plan for March?
Drink 3 bottles of water everyday
walk 3-4 days a week for 30 mins at least
elliptical easy and steady wins the race. Probably start out with a few mins and add each time. They are so hard on my knees? anyone else have that problem
Workout at the Cafe' which is similar to Curves. about 2 x's a week for 30 mins
more fruits and veggies
Take Thyroid & Multivitamin
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
Here is a list of know perks
Inside & Outside Pool
about 20-30 treadmills
about 10 ellipticals
a couple stair steppers
A huge assortment of weight machines and not just for men which is a good thing
an area for workout which is similar to the curves program
Sitter's/Playroom for smaller children so the parents can workout
plus so much more............now if only my back gets better so I can start working out! I guess I need to ease into it so I don't do even more damage to my back. I'm sure it will be better in a few days! Maybe by monday I can begin my workouts!

So much has been going on lately and I really don’t know where to start? I’ve not really been keeping this blog up to date, however I do plan to start trying to get back into the groove of things.
My baby girl, Leah Josephine started going to elementary school, I guess it was a few weeks before Thanksgiving. She’s only 3 years old so normally she would not even be going to school. But, she had tubes put in her ears, in which they tested her hearing before hand and one of her eardrums did not respond. I’m hoping that the tubes have helped! I do see a great improvement over the last several months. Any ways the ear doctor thought she should be tested to see if she is where she needs to be in different area’s of development. She was tested through our public school system. They said she was about a year behind in cognitive development and communitive she was around 6 months behind. But I have seen a lot of improvement in her vocabulary in the last several months and I think she is doing very well. They think she will still be able to start kindergarten with kids her own age.
Since October my husband and I have done nothing BUT argue! I knew something was wrong, I just didn’t know what? I think a woman knows when something is going on. My sister, Marcia always told me you would know. I think a woman always has something about them to tell them when something isn’t right. Be it about your marriage or someone who isn’t of good company to your children. I won’t give all the details of everything that went on cause, I know there are people that I know in RL that I think is none of their business. I believe that one of the men he is good friends with at work, who we know pretty good cause we’ve been to church with them that has been talking to him. I ask his wife to pray for him. I know my mom has, and I have too. To be honest I think our little girl has too. I know most people do not agree with me taking him back. But, I’ve never believed in divorce. I want my daughter to have both me and her father around to be there for her.
I had to drop one of my courses in school this semester, so now I’m currently only taking one class at a time. But I know next semester if I continue to go to school I need to add another class. I’m thinking of transferring and taking one class at a time anyways, Cause I’m seriously hoping I can find a job soon. We are going to try and move out of my husband’s aunts house soon so I want to be out of our own at least by the first of May. Which should be pretty doable. I don’t think I can really concentrate on school as much I think doing one course at a time would be plenty enough. With a family, a house to manage on my own, and running after a 3 year old. School would be overwhelming if I take too many classes at once.
Well, I’ve not been working out like I should but I really want to start trying to get back on track. I hope we can find a place that has enough room to put up my treadmill so I can begin to do my running/ walking once again. I have plenty of workout dvd’s too so maybe soon we will have the room to do that! I took some before pictures of me the other day, thought I would take a front and side view picture of myself once a month. I have a new camera and tripod so who knows one day I might get brave and do some actual vlogging.
