Breastfeeding

So I just have to vent about something right now, because I am about to lose it. I’m going to have around 130 hours on my paycheck this pay period. (Which is 2 weeks) I am beyond exhausted. Not only that, we are moving at the end of the month. Also, I’m still breastfeeding. He has been very picky about eating real food, and I’m not making enough to give him all the milk he wants. I was just looking up lactation cookie recipes while nursing him on my left side and trying to pump anything from my right. I managed to pump a little over an ounce (right is my weak side). and it dribbled down me and his arm when I pulled it away. Then when I went to sit it down, it fell over. I’m taking fenugreek, and drinking mother’s milk tea. I am struggling. I also co-sleep and he basically uses me as a human binky while he sleeps, so my neck and back are so jacked up. I’ve tried giving him juice and he doesn’t want anything to do with it. Sunday I’m taking the boys to A Day Out With Thomas and I can’t wait! I need some fun with my babies. Gonna try to pump a little more. Wish me luck.

Ready for bed.

I went on my 13th run tonight! It was so peaceful out and it went so smoothly. I think I’m finally getting into the groove of it. I just finished my delicious protein shake and now I’m heading to bed. I have to work in the morning! I finished my 2 day cleanse today as well, so I will be weighing myself in the morning. Getting healthy and fit! I love it!!

Down 5 pounds!

So I started running just over a week ago and I'm already down 5 pounds. (They say the first 5 is the easiest to lose) I've been basing my running time off this picture I got off of Pinterest. It eases you into running so you're not like DYING when you start. I enjoy it so far!

I'm now on week 2! I also went grocery shopping today for healthy options for meals and snacks. I'm so excited! My youngest will be 1-year-old this month, so I need to get back into shape already! I've been drinking protein shakes after each run. I just feel so good! I've also been taking a lot of It Works! products the past few months. (I'm a distributor now) We are about to start homeschooling my oldest for preschool next month. Exciting things!! I know I say this like every post, but I'm really going to start posting more! I really want to bring you guys with me on my crazy journey called my life. Hope ya'll are having a fabulous weekend!

End of another week.

I feel like for the first time in a while, I have my head on straight. I am motivated. I just signed up with 2 great companies. Monat and Senegence. Monat is hair care products and Senegence is skin care. I will be signing up with another company on Monday. It works! These companies as well as me getting into photography, I hope will get me a steady income. The full time job I have now is just not getting me anywhere. I’m tired of living paycheck to paycheck. My son, Liam, is getting his photos taken tomorrow for turning 2. He has a hair cut appointment at the mall before hand, as well as his older brother. Hoping for a good day! I’m hoping to get a new TV and cell phone on Sunday. Gotta love tax season!
