I can already hear a reply "This is America and I can say anything I want"
I understand that but if people would just think before they talk/comment there would be a lot less hate in this world. Words can hurt way more than you think. Someone could be having a bad day or a bad week and hearing/reading mean words/comments would only make things worse.
That's all I want to say.

Hello Friends! I thought I would update you all here on what's up with me lately. I went to the hospital Sunday morning (Father's Day!) with some stomach pains that started on Saturday afternoon. I called my doctor and was told it could be my appendix and to go to the emergency room as soon as possible. So we spent the entire Sunday morning in the hospital trying to figure out what was wrong. Turns out I have a kidney infection! I still feel a bit weak but thankfully the pain is almost gone today! I am just SO THANKFUL it wasn't my appendix! I was so worried about having surgery. If you all remember I shared about my umbilical hernia a while back and how I will need surgery. I postoned surgery because I didn't want to stop breastfeeding Levi and not be able to carry him so worrying wether I was gonna need my appendix removed or not was stressful!
I am not feeling 100% myself yet. I am on antibiotics for 10 days. I have been pumping and dumping because I can't breastfeed Levi. Thankfully he took a formula bottle really well. I am not having the best week ever but I know it will all be over soon! I won't be able to finish my REVOLT fitness plan so that's on PAUSE for now. I want to complain so bad about EVERYTHING but I was reminded today that no matter how hard of a week I'm having someone out there has it WAY WORSE so I choose to be THANKFUL! Turn my negatives into positives...
-THANKFUL it wasn't something worse.
-THANKFUL I am ok.
-THANKFUL Levi is drinking formula just fine.
-THANKFUL for my wonderful family who helped with the kids when I was in the hospital.

My son's last day of Kindergarten was last week! He's moving on to FIRST GRADE! He's grown so much! I am just so thankful that God watched over him this school year. He's reading and writting and he LOVES to draw! I'm so thankful for the wonderful son God has given me!
So now that he's on vacation that means I have ALL THREE KIDS home with me! Things are a little busier now but I found a way to make it work and I'll be sharing that with you all tomorrow along with a free printable!

I haven't done any of the work outs this week. I did however walk/jog 3 days this week which I think is perfect for me since I haven't done any type of exercize in a while! I plan on starting the work outs next week. I'm excited! I feel a little sore today (nothing too bad) from last nights walk/jog. I used 3lbs weights while walking and it really helped me work my arm muscles while working my legs.
I don't have a bodyfat caliper which is required so I can't do that but I will start with weight and measurements until I purchase one.

As you all know I just had a baby! I pretty much lost all of the baby weight I had gained except for THREE little pounds that I keep gaining and loosing. I still have a total of 15lbs that I would like to loose. Not only that but I'd like to feel fit and not just skinny. I haven't been working out and so I feel drained and tired a lot. I was just talking about this with my husband the other day! I've been getting headaches and just feel lazy and tired all of the time. I think it mostly has to do with what I'm eating and my lack of exercise....
So, I was SUPER EXCITED when I got an e-mail last week from Tara offering me a chance to try out REVOLT and to blog about it. So of course I said YES! This is exactly what I need!
What is REVOLT?
REVOLT is an online fitness program created by Nichole Huntsman. There are monthly Uprisings. Which include 4-weeks of diet, workouts, and workout videos.
I will be sharing more details on what I ate and how my first week went tomorrow and every Friday with you all! I'll be sharing pictures here and/or on instagram. I just wanted to let you guys know before I share my first post tomorrow so you get a heads up to what I've been up to this week.
I am motivated and having my husband join me in doing this makes it even better!
We have a WINNER for the Shabby Apple Giveaway!
(I have already e-mailed you)
