Happy Birthday to me!

Cyndi Who?

I know I know…most of you are probably like who the heck is Cyndi, I thought this blog was just Carman and Lexy.  So hello my name is Cyndi, I’m Carman and Lexy’s sister-in-law, mother of 2, I love pina coladas and long walks on the beach!!  I’ve been otherwise preoccupied with the new addition to our family, Cruz.  You will be hearing a lot more from me though, I promise.

I was going to do a big post about starting my WW journey (again), but then I thought…I never really stopped, so instead, this will be a progress report and goal setting post.

Weight Progress:

I weighed in again on 4/21 and lost another 1.5 pounds.  Yay for me!  I’m keeping track of my progress with one of our favorite apps TargetWeight.

My goal weight is 150, my current weight is 176.3…26.3 pounds to go!

Sunday was my 21st birthday for the tenth time 😉  I found an awesome deal on a spin bike on a local classifieds website and just couldn’t pass it up.  It made me think about all my other birthdays and how I have NEVER asked for nor wanted a piece of exercise equipment!  And for this birthday that is all I asked for.  I also got P90X2 which I am super excited about and of course a cute pair of shoes (what birthday is complete without a pair of cute shoes, honestly!).

So with my new bike, P90X2, and my husband’s TRX bands (that I kind of stole)…I plan to seriously kick my own butt back into shape.

Goals for the week:  get 5 workouts in, count my points and post menu to the blog everyday, go to my WW meeting, and do something nice for someone else.

Monday menu:

So Monday was supposed to be my big kick-off day.  I was going to start my day off by taking Cole to school and then head to a 90 minute Bikram yoga class.  That plan came crashing down at 2am when Keller, who was in charge of the 1am feeding, put Cruz back to bed still hungry (not on purpose of course).  So I got up and fed him some more and then for the life of me could not get back to sleep.  I maybe fell asleep for 30 minutes before Cruz woke up again at 5.  I fed him again and tried to go back to sleep but he wasn’t as tired as mommy was and then Cole came in at 7:30 and it was time to get ready for school.  I literally was so tired I could barely open my eyes.  I didn’t think it would be a good idea to go do physical activity in a 95 degree room for fear I would pass out.  So I took Cole to school, stopped by the bank to take care of some stuff, and then came home and took a nap.

Breakfast: sourdough toast w/1TBSP PB- 6pts

Lunch: protein pancake and green greek smoothie- 7pts

Snack: Mint Cookie Balance Bar – 5pts (this is one of my favorite go to fast grab snacks, it tastes like a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie!)

Dinner: 2 pieces of turkey, salad, and a FAGE greek yogurt (random I know)- 5pts

Total points: 23

Went on the spin bike finally at 8:30p for 40 min +8

Oh and I wanted to also post my favorite thing of the day (it’s all of positive thinking people!!!), so today my favorite thing was playing baseball with Cole outside and then having dinner on the porch just the 2 of us.  Loved it!
