This last Saturday I HAD to go to walmart! I try to avoid this place and even more so when I have both girls! It was freezing and I didn't feel like doing anything but we were out of COFFEE and diapers, both of which we can not make it through the day without! So me being lazy tell Boo we are going in our PJs I really didn't want to dress myself much less 2 wiggly girls! Boo LOVED the idea of this! So we went in to Walmart Boo and I in out pjs and Boogie in her sleeper! Boo was happy to show off her pjs and I mean hey its walmart we fit right in!

I finally found this crazy little doll on Amazon ....I was soo happy to finally find little Loopsy until I saw her price! La La Loopsy went from $20 to 50 BUCKS! Guess what folks I bought it anyways!..I feel alittle bit robbed..jipped ...bambuzled AH the things we do for our kids! Spending money makes my want to shove a pint of chubby hubby in my mouth but that's a blog for another day!

Today I found out my Grandmother has Breast Cancer. I was at the grocery store at the time of this terrible news my immediate reaction was like a reflex, I hauled butt to the candy isle where I opened a bag of dark chocolate truffles and shoved three in my face! It’s such a strange feeling to feel over whelming satisfaction and shame at then same time! I’m boxing my shadow here ..I’m at war with myself ! With a 3 yr old, a 5 month old, a husband that is deployed to Afghanistan and a fast food place on every corner in this God forsaken military town. I feel like I might be fighting a losing battle how the heck am I a self-proclaimed emotional eater going to expect myself to not emotionally eat when everyday is a emotional rollercoaster? So I started this right after the delivery of my 2nd daughter weighing in at a whopping 203 lbs my goal is to get to 130 lbs after about 5 months of spin class, yoga and fighting my urges to stop at McDonalds get 3 hamburgers and eat 2 before I get to where ever I’m going so people think I only got one (true story I’ve really done that) I am weighing in at 152 lbs and I have found that exercise and healthy food is not the way I’m doomed to live the rest of my life like I originally thought! Fresh food and a good work out has become a passion! While I still get hit with the over whelming need to shove my face in a cake when I get some bad news it’s getting better everyday…. I’m boxing my shadow and I’m winning!!
