OK, so I'm trying to lose weight and I've been really frustrated because it's just not happening. So, I decided that I'm going to go back to following the Slimfast plan that I was just starting on when I found out that I was pregnant with Collin. Tomorrow is the big day! I'm starting this and I've got a goal of a really cute dress for my cousin's wedding in CA the middle of June.

I'm really hoping that tomorrow when I wake up I won't see any snow!!! What's the deal with snow in March, practically April? Seriously :-) We need to get out of the house and be able to play somewhere. Everyone in the family was sick at some point this past week and hardly any of it overlapped, which in turn meant that we were all cooped up so we didn't give the rest of the world our germs. I think that everyone's over the worst of it with Collin bringing up the rear. Poor little guy still has a stuffy nose, but he seems to be feeling much better.

I reorganized the kitchen tonight with the help of my sweet husband, who only looked at me like I was nuts a few times. I'm sure that now I'm going to have a tough time remembering where I moved everything to and spend way too much time opening every cupboard. Oh well, I think that it will work out this way better. We'll see.

I'm off to bed so I won't be ridiculously tired when I get up early to do Pilates in the morning. Let's pray for a night of good sleep for all (and no screaming children at 2 am!)

So tell me more about this Slimfast diet..... I would also like to lose some weight. The same thing happened to me. I was just starting to lose weight and look how I like then I got preg with Austin. :-)
Now I know where Olivia got her cold, haha! :-) So far the rest of us haven't got it. No biggie, it happens. Hope you have a great week!

Good news...Good weather is to come (so the 5 or so sites I checked say.) We just have to get through today, which I'm really hopeing to be the last day of snow for the year.

I hope the diet works for you. Adam and I kinda started before we went to CA, and with all the walking we did I though we would for sure lose a couple lbs. Seriously, it was like 10 miles a day!! I'm still the same, but Adam lost 3 that week and 3 last week. He's doing awsome, but I also cheat when he's not home. :) I just can't stay away from all the sugars. We started walking one night last week, but then it started snowing. Maybe we can try for this week? We miss you guys and feel like we never see you anymore. :(
