December 27 20111

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, which ever holiday you celebrate! 


So in our house we do celebrate Christmas, we are a pretty mixed bunch, we celebrate many holidays. Which i think is awesome! We had a great Christmas, we go to my aunts house Christmas Eve and scrapbook all night...lol...then sleep...wake up....stockings....breakfast.....and then presents....


DB was so excited when she woke up, she thought Santa was a girl, and asked why her (Santa) mommy wasn't here....LOL..and if her (Santa) mommy helped her with the presents. Man oh man do i love that kid! 


She got an awesome bike from our Aunt Jodi:




Once she opened it and saw that it was a bike she said "OH a bike ride" lol!!


Aunt Jodi woke up Christmas morning with the Flu, we felt bad for her. She is doing better now, so NYE we will be back to scrap-booking maniacs lol.


I have decided to make tons of changes in 2012, besides the 100 days of real food, i will also be remodeling my living space, Here is what i have so far:


The inspiration for DB's room - this will not come until mid to late 2012, DS (Darling Sister) lol, is planning to move in with her DBF (darling boyfriend) lol! Once she moves out then her room will turn into DB room, i'm not going to lie, it is really exciting for me! LOL DB and i are in a room together and have been since i moved back in with my parents...It will be nice to have my own space again, i think DB will like it as well...



So i had to buy this rug because DB said she wanted a purple room. I saw this at Big Lots and it was the only one left, i was afraid that it would be gone by the time we get to her room, so i bought it anyway lol!


This is the paint that i will be using to paint the hallway and the stairway. I am not sure if i should paint the doors blue also, and just leave the trim white or just paint it all the light blue....this i will need to think about.


This is the bathroom color, it is like a blue/green ish color, i like it a lot. 


To the Left is the hallway/stairs color, and to the right is the bathroom color, and everywhere else is the current bathroom color which is an ugly yellow ish caca color that my mom painted. Sorry mom....it just doesn't work. 

This remodel will be a project that i will be working on in all of 2012, i really only have nights and weekends until march and then i only have weekends to work on it. I will post pictures randomly as i go :) 

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

December 19 2011

Monday, Monday...da da da-da da-da da....


Today is the last Monday DB and i get to hang out with AJ, it is a sad day...we both have huge changes coming to our lives..she got a GREAT new job...and i will be starting school...and its not that we can't hang out other days but seriously since AJ and i moved we have hung out almost every Monday, so since December 2008. I will miss out Mondays! But totally look forward to maybe Saturdays! 


I am looking forward to January 1st 2012...this will be the first day to my 10 day pledge. 10 days of real food, i am starting with 10. LOL! then i will try the 100 day challenge...or maybe just keep doing 10 day pledges. SO if you would like to pledge 10 days of your life to not eating processed food, white sugars and flowers...etc..etc..go here and join me! www.100daysofrealfood.com 


I think it is funny what kind of reaction you get when you change you look....in this case i changed my hair...i now have bangs and it is red with blond chunks...i am not quite used to it yet...it looks like a wig still..lol. When you walk by some one and they give a reaction, i don't think the person giving the reaction knows how much you can read them...lol. So when you look totally different, and their eyes just light up and they smile and say "wow, it looks really good, i like it" that is a sincere "likes" it. On the other side when they pause and say "you look different, i will have to get used to this" that is an "I don't know how to tell her it looks like SH*t...lol j/k! I can really care less what you think about my hair! That's the thing, its just hair :) 


Well i am going to make this blog like me - Short and Sweet!


C-ya! I hope you all have a wonderful day today even though it is Monday! 


Thanks for reading!

December 18th 2011

There is only one week until christmas, this will be DB's 3rd Christmas. It is so crazy to see the change in children as they grow up. I am so excited for next weekend <3


Today is my 5 year anniversary with the company I work for. This is the longest job I have had to date. I was just thinking that jobs are like relationships...my job and I have had our up and most defiantly our downs, I have grown with my job and I have watched my company grow. I am thankful for my job. I am going to keep positive in 2012 and hope my company sales increase :)


I found a blog www.daddyslittlegrill.blogspot.com it is about a woman who lost her father in January 2011 due to suicide. It is her daily struggles. I read every one of her blog entry's and you can just see the strength grow in her over this past year. January 19th will be the 1st anniversary of her daddy passing maybe if you guys could keep her in your thoughts or go leave her a comment may help her ease through this time. Also if you have lost someone due to suicide or know someone who may be thinking of taking their life, I truly feel that this may help you or them. To know you are not alone.


Since today is Sunday DB and I don't have much planned. Just have to get up and get the laundry started and then we have to go to bed bath and beyond which will be interesting. Hopefully we wont have to fight the crowds too much lol.


I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend so far!!!

Secret Santa!

What a merry holiday....my car broke Monday night (at work) i had to two it to my mechanic, which it cost me $136.00 and to this day it is still at the shop, and will be fixed by tonight! I had to borrow my moms car...the Bitch goddess car.........................baahshhshhahha that is the sticker on the back of it! LOL! But it was all fine when i got to work this morning to a gift on my desk!


Ever since i have been in this department we play secret Santa! They didn't do any thing fun around Christmas time before i was here. I like to bring the holiday spirit back into action! HA! So it seems that every year the person who has me doesn't give me a gift until the very last day or so, this year it isn't playing like that! I got a gift today! 
Tattoo Books!
My secret Santa is obviously someone who knows me, lol! I arrived to work today and there was a package on my desk, inside were the above Tattoo books. Thank you secret Santa! HEHE!

This year is really tight in the gift giving. I still figured out a way to get DB more then one gift. I can wait to see her reaction this year! She is so much more into the decorations and lights. It is amazing to see her face light up when we go down a street with lights on the houses. She says "WOW!!! Yook mommy yights..." I love it! The raw emotion/excitement coming from her! It truly lights up my heart. I am almost afraid for her to grow up because i know this raw/real emotion will slowly dim. It really makes me sad. Is there a way to get some magic dust to sprinkle on her to make her not grow up....and while you're in the magic dust bag....get me some of that skinny dust and just dump it on me! LOL!

What are your plans for your Holiday this year? Are you starting new traditions?

Talk about a nice fellow

This morning I heard a wonderful TRUE story on my favorite radio show, the mikey show, and i thought i would share the story with you all! 


A Victim Treats His Mugger Right


It brought a smile to my face, because there is a shortage of nice people in the world these days. 


I hope it brings as much love to your heart as it did to mine!

Rosie's adventures in birth and beyond: Doula Robin's Monoamniotic Twins

Please take a minute to read the below link, this is a friend of my friends. My heart goes out to her and her family.


Rosie's adventures in birth and beyond: Doula Robin's Monoamniotic Twins

Finding a new me

I have been slacking in everything lately, I am not sure why or what is going on. 


It is time to get my ass back on track and no more excuses! Even if i don't post a blog everyday that will be OK but i need to find the Happy again! Because i am not happy in my body, or environment. 


I am hoping that with the changes coming in 2012 it will help bring my Happy back. We'll have to see....LOL


I am going to have to get back on track with walking at lunch and eating healthy (1200 calories) again. YES!! BRING ON THE FOOD JOURNALS well my weight watchers tracker thing! 


I have been making so many excuses as to why it is OK if i eat crap, or not track my food,  and it really isn't ok. 


I will be starting school in 2012 but before i can even start i have to take a High School Assessment test, due to the fact that i did not get my high school diploma or a GED. I take the test on Saturday. I am actually nervous about it, 1 - because i haven't been in school for 8-10 years, and 2- the practice test has algebra on it, I NEVER took algebra. I have been you tubing it and trying to figure it out. i just hope i pass this thing! 


Change subject...


Dooty booty is talking so much! like full sentences, it is amazing! she is so smart! She sings her abc's and can identify the alphabet which it neat! She is getting so tall, I cant believe she will be 3 in March! Where is this time going?!?!?!??!?!??


I have to get back to business now! 


Please keep me in your thoughts that i can overcome this crap and finally stay on track, instead of just messing everything up!


Thanks!

So excited

I'm not going to lie - the news has been released that in less then 3 months my sister is going to be moving out of the house....and guess what that means!!!!!! That will be the start where I magically transform her room into dooty booty sanctuary! I asked dooty booty what color she would like her room and she said PURPLE! So that is where we are starting. All her furniture is white so that will be perfect! Right now we share a room - I really think this will be good for both of us!

We will also be transforming the "living room" (well my sister uses it as that) into a play room/my office/movie room. I will be getting rid of the cable that is in there and only having the Wii and Netflix and DVDs! And obviously a better organizer for her toys and stuff to make it look nice. I am going to try to keep all her toys out of her room eek. I don't know if that will happen, but it is worth a shot.

Although I really hope my sister is making the right decision for herself and taking the next step in her life, I just can't help but to worry about her! She is my older sister of 2 years but it's what I have always done - looked after her. So I worry. But I know in my heart of hearts she will make the right decisions for her. With saying that I am ready to start helping her pack her bags lol so I can start the transformation to the new dooty booty room lol!!!!

I am defiantly going to post some before and after pictures for you all to enjoy as much as I will!!!!! Let the count down begin!!!

Happy 11.11.11 and happy veterans day!

It's weird that today is 11.11.11 - I personally think it is lucky and am excited I got to be a part of it!

I also wanted to say happy veterans day! To all who have served and are serving - and who will be serving our country - I thank you! Although I wish we did not have wars and everyone would just keep their eyes on their own papers, so we wouldn't have to lose our family or friends! I am extremely thankful for those of you who stand up and fight for us! Thank you!

Goodnight all I know I have something to do tomorrow....lol

If you missed 11:11 11-11-11 have a little piece from me:

Thankful Thursday 11.10.11

Day before 11.11.11, boy I really didn't think I would see this day. I mean when you are 16-17 ish who really thinks they will live past 25 ha! I have to admit 17 was drug induced so I didnt think I would make it. In 4 days from now I will have not done drugs for 6.5 years by choice and not going to rehab. I don't even want to imagine what my life would be like if I was still using. I was getting in so much trouble because I was trying to fill some sort of void that my mind had created, which now I would call depression, self diagnosed. To this day I still haven't gotten completely over my issues with depression but I would have to say that dooty booty is my angel! I am so thankful for her. I don't think I would be here today without her. Mama loves you so much!

I'm back! Alot of these will be posted from my iPhone so they will probably be short and sweet ha!

Pretend its....Weigh in Wednesday! 10.19.11

Baaahahha!!! I have been so busy keeping up with my farm.....................yes...my farm...meaning FARM freaking VILLE on facebook!! Why?!? No idea! The time I play this dumb game is interfering with my blogging! I need to quit but i don't know how lol!! Any HOOT! Lets get to the Weigh In:

So Since we are pretending it is 10.19.11 i thought you should know that in exactly 7 months i will be starting my last year of my twenties......just a lil info for you.

Last Week: 214.80
This Week: 214.40
Total Loss: 0.40
Goal Weight: 140.00
Left to Go: 74.40

EEk! I had a small loss this week and i am totally fine with it! I know what i did wrong (eat regular yummy ice cream) and now i will stick to my 1 point weight watchers fudge pops. LOL! I didn't meet my small goal for the week and that is ok! I am not going to beat myself up about a small loss. Because a loss is a loss and still weight off of my body, so i am HAPPY about that!

Let do some goals!

Small Goal (for the Week): To lose at least 3.00 lbs at 10.26.11 weigh in - I am going to keep the 3 lb goal for the week BECAUSE i can! Lets DO THIS! LOL

Episode TwentyTWO



I am not sure what is going on with my comments on here, it is starting to bother me....


This past weekend I took the weekend off of Weight Watchers (DON'T WORRY i was back on track on monday) due to having so many thing going on.....




Last Friday night came home and made dinner (weird), i made a weight watchers dinner: Chicken Teriyaki with Broccoli. It was really good! The best part about it was I didn't eff it up. I am seriously not a cook! i think it will take me a while to get the hang of this but i'll take it slow. I so far have not made a meal every night. Obviously you can see from how often i post, i suck at committing to things, and i REALLY need to change that. I dont think i will be able to advance in ANYthing if i cant grasp that.


Potty Training


Yesterday (10/13/11) we started potty training DB, by we i mean gamma moogs and I. My idea was to take her to the bathroom every 15-30 minutes and sit her on the potty. During my shift, the evening, i think i am letting her sit there to long. What is the right length of time to let your kid sit on the pot...? So we'd take her potty and then once 30 minutes or so elapsed we got up....AN THEN...5 minutes into the waiting period she would pee in her diaper.....this basically happened all day. I though she pee'd once on my shift....i'm pretty sure she did. Then right before bed i took her to the potty and we waited it out....then i put an overnight diaper on her....and 5 minutes later she comes to me and this was our Conversation:


DB: "I pooped."
CS: "Excuse me?"
DB: "Yook" (turns around, points to and shows me her diaper bum)
**There was poop in there**
CS: "You pooped, why didnt you tell mommy, we just used the potty"
DB: "Poop"


I am not going to lie, i was upset, frustrated, irritated, etc. "Maybe she ISN'T ready for this" i thought. I am not so sure what to do now, i am going to keep the potty training in effect through the weekend. Yesterday was day one and kids NEED structure.....so my night and weekend are going to be spent in the bathroom....lol. We have a play date with EM tomorrow, we will keep the bathroom limited, but i really believe in here. I am the one who needs to be patient. i am going to take it day by day.


The Jill Foundation 


This weekend SUNDAY to be exact there is a benefit, in honer of my Aunt Jill! She was such an amazing woman! Before i get to the benefit i want to tell you a little about her. She was an amazing lady, a hair stylist, when she smiled there was this glisten, like a sparkle in her eye, she lit up a room. She was such a great mom. So kind and generous. She took me in when i was down, I was 18 just got out of a drug induced, abusive relationship. I decided to clean my life up, and to get literally clean i needed to get away...and she took me in.  My aunt passed away from breast cancer in 2004. I think about her every single day! Every single day since 2004....i really hope she knows how much of an impact she has had on my life. She is in heaven with my Gran (her mom) now, and both are not in pain anymore! I love and miss you both so much!!!!


The dual purpose of The Jill Foundation is to honor the memory of Jill Etzold Kester, a true friend and a talented and respected hairstylist, who was taken from us by breast cancer, and to help hairstylists whose lives have been affected by this devastating disease. 


Ok so this sunday is The Jill Foundation's 2nd Annual - Cut-A-Thon in Orange, CA


For $15.00 (Donation) you get a shampoo and a cut, also there is always a raffle, that is always a good time!


For ALL the info go to http://thejillfoundation.org/


You may also just donate there if you'd like, I'd like you to. Please and thank you!


Thank you in advance!

Weigh In Wednesday - 10.12.11

Ok i am not starting week 2 of weight watchers! I am not going to lie, this past week has been a bit challenging. I have been keeping on track for the most part...EXCEPT...over this past weekend, I took it off....LOL I had to give myself a day, which turned into two days, but i got right back on track on Monday. I actually love weight watchers, it's really great! Ok, ok so on to the Weigh in:


Last Week: 219.00
This Week: 214.80
Total Loss: 4.20
Goal Weight: 140.00
Left to Go: 74.80

I think 4.20 lbs is pretty awesome! I am going to introduce goals (small, medium, and large)


Small Goal (for the Week): To lose at least 3.00 lbs at 10.19.11 weigh in
Medium Goal (for the Month): To lose 10.00 lbs by 11.12.11 (starting small...LOL)
Large Goal: to have lost 50 lbs in 20 weeks


There you have it! Now get back to work!

Don't fudge it....Budget....

I am really into being Debt free in my life, i want to share a budget tool with you:


I was just turned on to a website : www.mint.com


This website links to your bank account (only for viewing). It is a great tool for starting a budget and figuring out what you are actually spending your money on...


It is smart to name every single dollar of that paycheck you get, before you get it! 


I would say IMO creating a budget was the hardest part of starting my debt free lifestyle. It is hard to see where your money is actually going. When you think you are doing a great thing and only spending money on thing you 'Need' with the target shopping spree.....before you would have just wrote it off to "i have some extra money i can spend it" when in reality....the $150 bones you just dropped at target probably should have gone to the credit card that is almost maxed out....


I would suggest getting the book The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. I would also suggest to follow the first 3 steps to the tee. I cant tell you about my experience with the rest of the steps yet....well because i'm not there yet! LOL


(I personally use mint.com but with the lifestyle of the total money makeover.)  


There are going to be challenges and obstacles in your way as you go...but it is up to you to make the right choice of how you want to live in life. Do you want to pay crap for the rest of you life? Or do you want to be free? This will work if you make any $$ amount, its just up to you if you want to be different.


I wish you the best on you path to being debt free.

Weigh in....Thursday (This Week Only)


So I missed “Weigh in Wednesday” so I am going to fake like today is Wednesday, just to give you this update.

I signed up for Weight Watchers yesterday, Thank you to the Chunky Goddess for inspiring me. I am going to try this out! Let’s hope that it works wonders.  I am excited, but at the same time I feel like I am already failing…my head is like you want sweets…candy….bread….blah…blah….

I guess this is one of the many challenges of being a food addict.

I had to go to the dr a few weeks ago, as you all know, and when I weighed in I was 219 lbs, that is a 9 lb weight gain to the 40 lbs that I had lost previously. I know that my slight depression does have an impact on this gain, because with the depression comes eating. So while I am doing the Weight watchers I have to go over all the things in my head that are weighing on my back……I want to go back to school….i stress my parents out….they shouldn’t have to watch DB….will DB ever have a Father in her life….I wish DB’s father wasn't him…..will I ever find “The One”…..i don’t want DB to go through the same things in life that I did…..Am I ever going to find my way…..and this is just a small amount of CRAP that fills my head daily…..
I know I will never be the best with all this haze around me. So I will be working on one thing at a time, and if anyone has advice I am willing to hear! 

In conclusion, I will be starting Weigh in Wednesday again. Wish me luck! I need all the motivation I can get!


Starting Weight: 219.00
Goal Weigh: 140.00
Total Lbs to lose: 79.00
Total Lbs lost: 0.00

Dear Bloggy, 


It has been so long since i have written in you, i apologize...it is so hard to do this and work full time and be a mommy....i just have to make it mandatory in my life...(we'll see how that goes) 
This weekend was fun! Full of birthday parties....2 to be exact. and Both at bounce house places...which is completely awesome! Adults can jump also...great exercise! 


The one for ZD was at a place called Jumping Jacks, and the one for IR was at Pump it Up. We had so much fun that i think I am going to throw a joint party at Pump it up, for DB and I. We'll see if i have enough money then...HA.



We didn't do much of anything outside of that this weekend, besides the usual laundry. 


I have a pending blog that i keep going back to and writing a little more and then saving and exiting....i really need to finish it. 


I will have to write more later...


Sincerely, 
Cheapsoda

What happened?!?!


--------------------------------------------------------
MONDAY
--------------------------------------------------------



Good evening bloggy world!!! I hope you all have had a great Monday.....eek....that just doesn't sound right!


Weekend RECAP!


DB and I had a relaxing weekend! We didn't do much, stayed home in our jammies, except for the time i had to go to the grocery store!


We made wonderful cup cakes as you saw in the previous blog...


but real stuff, i needed this weekend, i don't really feel like it helped the "depression" i am feeling, but it is a start...


I bought 3 Biggest Loser Cookbooks today that i am going to start incorporating into my daily life. What i would really like is my friends to be close to me...and on the same EXACT schedule that i am on so we can go walking daily! Like a stroller walking group....THAT DOESN'T COST MONEY!!! That way all of us get out and get fresh air and a nice Bitch session....all while literally walking out butts off!!!


So anyway since i like doing the recipe/cooking/baking blogs and show you what i'm making....i'm going to do that with my healthy choices also and take you guys along with me. This is also all new to me...since...I DON'T COOK.....not at all....the only one thing i know how to make is Boxed mac n cheese!


--------------------------------------------------------
TUESDAY
--------------------------------------------------------


--------------------------------------------------------
WEDNESDAY
--------------------------------------------------------



It is now Wednesday....you see that gap in there i totally skipped over tuesday! This week is flying by and going so slow, i have not had any motivation...really for anything! 


How do you become a morning person!? I would really like to be a morning person. the kind of person who gets up at 5am because thats when their inner alarm clock goes off.....whoever is in charge of this out there, can you lead me to the right aisle for inner alarm clocks, mine seems to be broken!


So this is all you get i will go to bed early tonight and you will have a new version of me tomorrow!!!


I hope all is well!

(If you already follow us on GFC, we'd LOVE it if you would follow us on Facebook or Twitter.) 2. Please follow our guest co-host who this week are Kadie from Seven Alive. 3. You don't have to post our button but we sure would like it if you did. Not only does it help our hop grow so we can all get new followers, but each week we will choose a guest co-host and to be considered you must have our button somewhere on your site! If you post our button and want to be considered for guest co-host, please email me at jmanandmillerbug@gmail.com to express your interest. 4. You can link up blogs, facebook, twitter accounts, whatever - just be sure to specify what each link is. 5. Hop around and find blogs that you enjoy. Be sure to tell them you are following them from Finding New Friends Weekend Blog Hop so they can follow you back! 6. Have fun!

Keepin' Company Thursday

* Create a Keepin' Company Thursday post. Please include the Keepin' Company Button in your post. * Follow the first two blogs, which are the hostesses: Heck of a Bunch and Traci66. * Follow any of the other blogs you choose to and let them know you found them via Keepin' Company Thursday. * If you get a follow via Keepin' Company Thursday please follow them back. * Add your blog name and the URL to your Keepin' Company Post to the link below. There is no need to add your link twice. You can do so either on my blog or at Traci66. It will show up at both regardless. * You can also grab the blog hop code to add to your post if you want the thumbnails to appear in your post. * If you add the Keepin' Company button to your sidebar and leave either of the hosteses, Heck of a Bunch or Traci66, a comment letting us know where to find it we will randomly draw a blog to be in the #3 spot next week. This week's #3 spot goes to Misadventures Of A Chunky Goddess. I personally love her blog and her writing style doesn't offend me. For those who turn their eyes at partial nudity and F bombs, her blog may not be for you. Otherwise, head on over there. She's got lots to say and I'm always entertained.
