In need of a break...

I think all moms out there hit that moment when you mentally check out.  I'm there.  I wish I were sitting on a beach somewhere, but alas, I am thinking about the clothes I need to get out of the dryer. I totally rewashed CLEAN clothes today.  I did not realize they were clean until I threw in the last shirt and remembered I needed to put them back in the dryer.  Whoopssss...so the grays will be doubly clean.  I also bleached my new bedding.  I suspect my new acne medicine did it : (  Kinda bummed on that.  Oh well...it's life.  I think I'm getting sick.  My ear and throat hurt.  I worked out hard tonight to counter act all the extra calories I've been consuming lately.  I have hypothyroidism so if I merely look at food I gain 3 pounds.  This weekend is the Lady Gaga concert and it will be fun.  We might go to connections afterward.  It depends how we are holding up.  I'm sure my fierce makeup will more likely resemble alice cooper after the concert. 

I've come to a realization most of my pants do not fit.  It's a good thing.  But it's also an annoying thing.  I need to buy some more jeans.  I have a mounting collection of pants I can no longer fit and the pile is growing monthly: )  I'm going to wait until I hit my goal weight 125.  I have lost a whopping 80 pounds so far.  I have no idea what I look like.  It's a weird concept and if you haven't lost a bunch of weight it's hard to wrap your head around it.  But I gained weight fast with my pregnancy and I've lost it pretty fast too.  I'm just not sure what my body shape is anymore.  It's annoying because I don't feel skinny...but I don't feel big either.  I want to get physically fit again.  I'm in better shape now, but I'm not one of those people who fall victim to the thin is in shape bit.  I want to be able to jog again and have my endurance back.  I'm going to start biking.  I want to get a baby seat for Cedric and bike with him during the day.  I have extra bikes so I might invite some friends along on some rides.  My neighborhood is a bi*ch with hills...so it will be a good workout.  I need to take some meds...my throat is scratchy.  Fun...

 Here are some pics from yesterday...
I ran to Target and really did not see that large of a selection of false eyelashes (searching for my Gaga ensemble) and followed the advice of my makeup guru goddess on youtube and ran to walmart.  Holy HELL...they have a HUGE selection...

I looked at Sephora the other day and I really did not want to spend $15 or $18 for a pair that looked the same and I might not end up wearing. 

I wonder if these work?  Has anyone ever used these and if so let me know how they are?






It appeared a cart boy got his revenge...hehehahaha.  I had to laugh because I saw two other people taking pictures of this.

and lastly...
This is how much formula I buy when I buy it.  Cedric goes through 1-1.5 EVERYDAY!!! I breastfed him in the beginning and yes I am fully aware a 16 month old child should no longer be on formula.(Long story but my little guy have an eating disorder and we are working on this with a feeding therapist)  It was kinda funny because this women in line saw the formula and asked...awwwww...how many do you have at home? Assuming I had multiples.  I said one.  She was cool though, she was like I don't blame you...buy it when you can.  I buy it from Walmart because it's the cheapest I can find it while it's on rollback $3.84 a bottle.  It's $5 something when it's not.  This kid isn't cheap.  Not including his meds and baby food.  I can't wait until we tackle this feeding issue : )  I am a nice formula hoarder though...I always always always leave a bottle for another mom.  I've been that mom and needed just one bottle to get me through the night or day. It's so upsetting seeing the ONE type of formula your little one can take is out of stock.  So I always leave some behind : )

Ok...off to bed I go...have a great night : )

I know what you mean with the weight loss thing! I used to weigh 240lbs..I'm 5'10", but still 240 is too much for anyone to weigh. I was pre-diabetic and had high blood pressure. I've lost 60 pounds and am no longer remotely close to diabetic, blood pressure is excellent..and you're right, thin doesn't necessarily mean fit. It's best to be healthy rather than thin. My youngest son had a feeding issue also..he had to be on expensive soy formula due to allergies ..it was hard to deal with at times and very expensive! Now he's 25 years old and completely healthy, so just know that it will get better for your son and your wallet! Good luck, I enjoy your blog! peace.
