Went to my class it is kicking my butt, Mom might be taking me and Bobby to Mexico this summer so I need to get his passport updated, it is pouring rain so looks like his last game will be rained out, he is bummed!!! Other than that, not much else going on!!!

So took the kids out to do errands it is raining like a bugger here, let them pick some crappy stuff for the beach at the Dollar Store they were pretty excited, then I had to get Bobby's hair cut, well Autumn was like I think I want to cut my hair, being a step mom I was unsure about this, although her hair is the freaking death of me, I am used to Robert he showers and goes, he has a buzz, so I let her try to call her mom she didnt answer so we did it, OMG it looks so cute, she is so excited, so I hope I dont get in trouble, but do I care? Hell No!!! Baseball was cancelled

When son got married a few years back, he left me with the kids for 2 weeks....
He DID NOT leave me any contact information - they went to Jamica...
Kristen wanted her long ponytail cut off and wanted really short hair...
Needless to say "Locks of Love" got a very healthy ponytail...
Kristen was all smiles - we took frame by frame photos of the event...
Dad was in a state of shock when they got home....
He freaked wondering what his X would say and the new mom was beside herself!
Actually they were really mad at me and Kristen felt guilty for enjoying her short hair....
She still talks about it today...
Son gave me instructions I can NEVER cut or have her hair cut again!
I still think we had an awesome day!

So GOOD FOR YOU!

see I don't get why people get their knickers in a bunch over cutting a kids hair. I reckon as long as its not an at home, chuck a bowl over the kids head and DIY - why not? I reckon you'll be fine amber. Heck, the mom might really appreciate it and if it made autumn happy - thats fantastic.

Ug at the seroma still going. Man I hope it is finished soon. Sounds like a right royal pain in the arse, or belly hehe

Oh my goodness! I would go all honey badger on an instructor that yelled at me! What! You want me to kick harder. Come on over here and I'll show you how hard I can kick!

It sounds like you are doing a lot of muscle toning and body fat reduction in that class. Totally measure!!!!!

So sorry about the ex issues. I totally understand. BIG problems with ex here too over the oldest one's college tuition and fees. We are back to the lawyer game and possibly mediation later this summer. Ugh!

I got Claire's hair cut last night too! It's short and looks so cute. She was in the mirror for about half an hour when we got home putting different clips and bows in to see how she wanted to wear it to school today. She went with the big denim flower clip that has rhinestones. That girl loves her bling!

OMG all that, deal with the ex, and then I need the ex's driver license copy front and back WTH???????????????/ Now I have to go back there tomorrow ughghgh!!! What a day I am heading to the pool, it is nice here and I want to go get sun. Got drained today, doc's kids worked at a summer camp he goes there next week to do free services on kids with problems that need surgery, I thought that was cool, he might be a plastic surgeon but he is a good guy. He told me to stop worrying about my weight, he said I am a big girl, and I am never going to be skinny, he thinks I look great and better and better each visit so to just keep doing and not worry, he said you are packing a lot of muscle, I said but I am a man, LOL He said not quite, LOL He said to just keep at the exercise and let the number on the scale be, it still frustrates the crap out of me!

Amber - I got passports for my kids earlier this year (first ones so maybe that was why it was different) but my ex had to be there to sign the paper or I had to have a notarized form saying he was giving permission to get passports. We just all met at the place to get it done. I did get a notarized letter from him saying he knows his child is traveling with his mother out of the country for this cruise --- our daughter is 18 so she can travel without permission.

You do have logs of muscle and LOOK FABULOUS!!! So I wouldn't fuss over the number either. & I sound nuts since I watch my number daily but with the surgery and still getting drained you shouldn't expect weight to be dropping just yet. ENJOY wearing your workout tops & all the other great fun things you get to wear now that you couldn't before.....and just ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY!!!

I was just looking at your pic on your profile for motivation. You have done so great and are so inspiring with all that you have accomplished. You may not have a certain # that you want, but you have so much more! I would love to lose enough weight that a TT would even be an option for me (not that I could afford it ).

You have been such an inspiration to me, and I am sure to at least hundreds of others who come to LCF to just look. You and your progress pics have probably saved the lives of people who decided to go low carb and changed their lives. You are so beautiful at the weight you are now. Even if you did not lose another pound you are gorgeous!

PARANOID- Yes I had to have the notarized thing, and sure enough in fine print it said to have the other parents DL, and I thought why the birth certificate if they had the passport already? What a giant pain, and to expediate it is so expensive , ughghg, of course he passes this off on me so I can get stuck paying. Well one guy I met last week at the job fair wasn't hiring they do solar jobs, grants, etc, he said he was thinking about me, and really enjoy talking to me, so he wants to get together on Thursday they are having a seminar on solar thermal heating, so he wants me to come and check it out and see if some interest, tomorrow is State Farm interview, I like this lady so I think I would settle on that if I get offered the job.

Good Morning Amber!!!

GOOD LUCK on the interview. I know you will blow it out of the water.

The Mexico trip sounds wonderful!!!

I was finally able to meet with the trainer on Monday. His diet plan/ideas were pretty dead on what I already knew. He said for cardio ideally is 5-7x's per week and to lift 3x's per week. He recommends meeting with him at first 2x's/week, I am not so sure that this is doable, but I am going to try.... He also said that one of the days should be a concentration day and this is what will give me the definition that I am wanting. This is where I need some help/guidance. I am still learning about what exercises for what, my form, supersets, etc., etc. Anyway...I was pleased with my visit with him. The classes you are taking sound great!!

Hope you have a great day!!
