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.

You’ve seen mine.. Now show me yours.. Bloggy style

So I have been writing on WordPress for a little while now via mobile.. So.. I may not have the option, which would be completely ridiculous..

But if I can mobile.. How do I read other peoples blog from here? I click on people and go to their Gravatar account.. And not even their whole one.. It cuts their picture in half and makes most links unreachable..

Do I need the desktop version? Obviously people are seeing MY blog.. I don’t know how to see yours though..

A little help please? Even if it is just the link to your blog in my comments section.

A completely unplanned blog

I feel like writing something.. I am not sure what.. But I know I want a blog published before I go to bed…

I am going grocery shopping tomorrow..

I would like to get back to meal planning.. Perhaps a little help with food themes would be nice..

I do Mexican Monday for a food theme..

The meals I make are:
Old El Paso Taco kit
Chicken quesadillas or
Taco ingredients on top of a bed of rice..

Needless to say.. My menu is lack luster..

Does anyone have any meal ideas or.. Better yet.. Recipes I can try out??

This is a little embarrassing.. Okay.. A lot..

I am hoping other moms out there can give me a little advice..

My second pregnancy.. I took care of myself.. I ate healthy (most of the time anyway.. A pregnant woman needs her treats), I exercised regularly.. If I was too sore to walk.. I swam.. I relaxed and made time to pamper myself.. I did kegals every day.. I did everything “right”

I still dealt with LBL (light bladder leakage).. From 5 months pregnant through out my entire pregnancy.. I asked my midwife about it because I was concerned.. She told me not to worry.. With regular kegals it will go away on its own soon after birth..

What I would like to know ladies is what “soon” means..

My daughter is now 11 months old.. I am still doing kegals every single time I nurse her.. As soon as I wake up in the morning & before bed.. Though my boyfriend appreciates it.. It still isn’t helping with my LBL issue.. I don’t even feel it when it happens.. I just use the bathroom and can smell it on my pad when I do..

Is there anything else I can do to correct this?
Should I speak to a doctor?
Am I doomed to live like this for the rest of my life?
Someone out there please let me know I am not alone in this..
