Bikini Body Mommy 3.0 Day 0

Tomorrow is day one of my Bikini Body Mommy 3.0 adventure..

I fail miserably at these programs.. they are too strict.. they deprive too much.. they work you too hard.. they don’t work you hard enough..

I have decided to do BBM 3.0 and have accountability partners.. I’m actually running this BBM journey with a few online friends.. I’ll be the one posting the videos and asking for updates from the people who have joined me..

I am hoping that since they will be depending on me to keep them motivated, that it means I will stay motivated myself..

I have decided that I will not be following her meal plan.. I will take the supplements that she has suggested and do her work outs.. I will be increasing my water intake as well.. but I will eat what I like and practice moderation.

Bright at early tomorrow morning I will weigh myself for the first time in over a month.. which will be horrifying.. and I will post it publicly  which is even more horrifying..

I went though a depression for that month that I didn’t step on a scale.. and I am a comfort eater..so that doesn’t really bode well for me. I’m not sure what I weigh right now, but I can guarantee that it is more than 200 lbs so I am a bundle of nerves tonight because I know I will not be happy with what I see on the scale.

For now.. I will try not to let it get to me too much.. but seeing as I am writing about it.. it’s not easy to not think of.

I am not sure how regularly I will be posting about it here as I will be posting it in the womens group that I am in and posting it on Instagram.. But I will try to keep you updated.. My invisible reader.. who is so invisible that it doesn’t show in the stats that you have read my blog entries.

I get by with a little help from my friends

I love the Beatles.. and I love The Wonder Years..

But this isn’t about either.. this is about me actually needing help..

Ever since I got cut back from 50 hours a week down to 15 it’s been a struggle.. Rent going up again isn’t helping… With full time we barely made ends meet as it was pre-rent hike…

Here is where I use emotional black mail to lure you into donating to my site.

I have 2 kids to take care of..

They are my everything.. I love them dearly and cannot afford where I live anymore..
My issue is that I can’t afford moving expenses either.. So I’m asking for your help..

I’m looking for donations to help us move into a new place. We’ve put in our 2 months notice and have to be out New Years Eve.

Before you start asking what I’m doing to help myself I’ll tell you..

– I work part time at a place that gives tips.. I have stopped spending the tips.. they are going to my moving costs..
– I do secret shopping on the side of my part time work and am saving that money as well.. sadly that only pays $3-5 a job and it costs me $3+ just to go out to said locations
– I do Avon as well to earn extra money but am still struggling to make a profit with that little endeavor.. I know a profit can be made.. I did avon once before and managed to make a profit from it back then.. I only stopped because I had 2 other jobs at the time and chose to quit avon.
– I am selling as much of my stuff as I can before the move.. clothes, electronics, craft supplies, artwork.. anything that isn’t nailed down.. and probably even some stuff that is..

But I have debts to pay off.. I’ve used my credit cards to make ends meet and need to pay those off AND pay for my moving expenses..

Once I live in a cheaper place I will be able to get back on track.. and who knows.. I might get a second part time job in the area I will move to..

Right now I’m spending $1800 a month on rent, hydro & transportation and only making $2200 a month, which leaves me with $400 a month for Groceries,¬†bills & emergency expenses.

I know that I can get a cheaper place, I’m currently looking at a place that is $1100 all inclusive. I’d be able to pay off my debts, save some money for the next move I end up doing, buy my kids nice things again and not kill myself trying to make ends meet for a little while.

As you can see, I have an actual plan to get back on my feet, this won’t be me every single week begging for a handout.

Please.. anything you could donate would be incredible I really would like to change my life and I believe this is the first step to doing so.

Just to make donating easier for you, my entire blog is a link to my donate page.

Thanks so much in advance, you have no idea how much your donation means to me.

Big Mama & family.

I feel like I am cheating..

I dropped my baby off with her sitter today early so they could go to playgroup.. I can’t wait to see how it went. Hopefully she is napping right now as she usually takes 2-3 hour naps starting around 1:30pm..

Since I had some me time I decided to surprise my boyfriend with breakfast & his monstrosity of a drink which has so much sugar in it you could go into a diabetic coma at the smell of it.

I got myself a coffee and breakfast sandwich while I was there.. Then wolfed back the sandwich as fast as I could and guzzled the coffee as I was approaching work.. Feeling unjustifiably guilty..

You see I work at Treats.. Where they serve coffee and breakfast sandwiches.. And I bought my coffee & breakfast from Timothy’s.. So I felt like I was cheating on my own store.. Which I know is ridiculous there is nothing wrong with the breakfast or coffee where I work.. Timothy’s was just closer..

That darn rhinovirus is starting to go away so apparently there is a god.. Or.. My body realized I have an immune system.. Whichever is more plausible..

(I am an atheist ’nuff said)

I only forgot 2 minor details at work.. So my brain is defogging. After a crazy 3 days! I can feel my IQ rising woot..

Wait a minute.. Where did woot come from?

Scratch the IQ thing..

Tonight for dinner is Italian night. Spaghetti, garlic bread & tums! Yippee!

What is your favourite Italian dish?

Dear Rhinovirus.. Piss off..

I have a cold.. One that kept me up most of the night with sore sinuses and a stuffed nose.. My throat is in fire and I had to have a hot shower and hot soup to clear me enough to attempt to sleep..

It was a beautiful day out today which meant business was slow at work.. And now that I am off.. Of course it is raining..

Where was that when I needed it??

Oh well.. I did better today at work than I did yesterday.. I remembered more things.. Still needed to be reminded about a few obvious things.. But my co-workers seem to be very patient with me.

I must be doing something right.. They want me to fill a temporary fulltime shift from the 7th of November for 2 weeks..

It says: You aren’t screwing up so bad..
Rather than: ack we have no one.. Big mama can’t even get her lunch chores done on time!

So that makes me happy.. As does ye extra money I will be getting for it..

Fingers crossed that my boyfriend has closing shifts so we can make the hours worthwhile.

I can’t wait to get home and hold my baby in my arms.. I need to sit down and relax after the crazy day my body has been putting me through.

All I can think about right now is food.. It is breakfast for dinner tonight.. I am thinking pancakes & scrambled eggs.. Something quick and easy..

I have nothing interesting to add. Perhaps I will after dinnertime.

Question: What is your favourite Breakfast for dinner meal?
