Monday, 20th 2011

What a crazy weekend... LOTS to do!
I am so glad to have Sundays as a day to rest, to STOP,
to just hang out with my family and take a nap on the
trampoline with the love of my life...
I wish I had a picture of that!
BUT I have a picture of my babe's Father's Day dinner...

Heck yeah!
 Those are 10 lbs. of Mama's BBQ Chicken Wings for you...

...We love you Papa!


...Now, if you were here last Monday you may be thinking
"THERE is NO way that she lost any weight after this dinner..."
Here is last week's DAY-ONE picture for you.

And here is the picture of Week ONE...
SEVEN days later :)

HOW cool is THAT!
My goal this week is to be under 120...
I haven't been there for over a year and a half...
So here is what I learned this week about weight loss.

Thank you to Mel M. M. Mc.Carthy for your comment:
"You can do it with the weight. I'm no pro ;) but my BFF Kim is & she swears by water water water."

Having a GOOD breakfast
made all the difference...
Oatmeal made with skim milk and with a bit of cinnamon is one of my favorites.

Every time the desire of eating the big NO NO'S came to me, I remembered how I used to look before I gained the weight and specially how much more healthier and happy I felt... That gave me the power to say NO.

I still have my HOT chocolate once a day if I please ;)
Here is a picture of my new cup... So HPPY!

...My inspiration this week to get UP and move what my mama gave me
comes from two incredible ladies.

Daphne Hope's MOM loves biking and rides 1000-2000 miles a summer
AFTER, {Yes, you heard me right}
After receiving a hip replacement!!
WOWMAN! We send you love and hugs 
from The 36th Avenue..
What an inspiration you are!

My other girl Kjerstin is racing in a half Ironman Triathlon this weekend...
Heck girl YOU ARE AMAZING for doing that!
I can't run around the corner without feeling I need a doctor ;)
She is using the motto on my adorable pillowcase
"Life is too short. Enjoy the ride" during her crazy long bike ride.
 Kjerstin, GOOD luck love from all of us here at The 36th Avenue!

This is what I love about blogging.. your comments,
your suggestions, your support and sweetness spread all over the place...

Let's make this week and EXTRAordinary one starting TODAY!

Congratulations on the weight loss! I'm desperate to lose weight. I woke up this morning thinking "That's it - it's lots of water today" and I've just realised after reading your post that I've had about two sips! Oops.
Great photos. You have gorgeous kids :)

You ROCK, Desiree! I'm chugging H2O as I type -- cheers to shedding those pounds off!

Hi! Thanks for the shout-out on this post! I was just scrolling through your blog, enjoying all the tips and advice and there it was, a shout-out to Kjerstin and her crazy half ironman triathlon! I appreciate your support! Hopefully I'll survive to tell you all about it next week! Keep up the good work as well! Can't wait to get the bike stencil! :)

Yay Kjertsi! That's my awesome sister-in-law. :) I am almost down all the baby weight from both my girls and it feels so great.
