It’s my birthday!!! Surprise! Lol Im 38. Go ahead… Mmhmmmm. I’ve heard all the old fart jokes today lmao lmao…
Story time… Left is day 1 vs right of day 355, today, of my weight loss journey. Shirt 4xl to 2xl. Well some rare brands are still 3x. Pants/slacks 62 to 46. Belt 64 to 48. No confidence, depressed, tired, bleek… Vs… shit loads of confidence I never knew I had, mostly happy Lol (damn job), energetic, and hopeful for the future. And it wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine and unicorn glitter farts; It all wasn’t always a downwards trend. It wasn’t tear free. It wasn’t stress free. I had gains too. Points where I wanted to just give up. Quit. Just stop. No one cares. Why bother!
Point is… Don’t stop. Don’t give up. And that’s right, no one cares! Be honest with yourself. No one cares. The only 1 that should care about you is YOU! Dont live, feed off of others. Do your own thing! And.. So what if you have a 2+lb gain this week. The weight loss journey is like driving on the interstate. You’ll make up for lost time… Just kick it into over drive now or later after a little break. You WILL get there. I’m proof of that. Just believe in yourself. Give yourself mini goals. And 1 realistic major goal. My 1 year was -100lbs. Obviously, I passed that! -138!!!! Just… 1-2 pounds a week. That’s all. The rest will follow. Do it on you own time. Your own goals. Your own rules. Don’t be an expert. I’m not an expert. Never stop learning. Play with your body. Learn. Explore yourself. Try new things. You will be great at it. Trust me! Just believe in yourself. Accept your flaws. Keep moving forward! Like the Marines say, “embrace the suck, and keep fucking moving!”
I’m gonna have some chocolate cake… Because I can! *Cheesey smile* 😛 y'all have a great night! Muah 🍀😘😜♥️
Innie or Outtie: My innie has been an outie since about 18 weeks
Maternity Clothes: I rotate between 4 maternity shirts and 1 pair of maternity jeans. 4/7 days of the week I’m in scrubs, and when I’m home it’s usually leggings or no pants 🤷🏽♀️
Sleep: 6-7 hours usually.
Pregnancy Perk: Using my stomach as a table
Embarrassing Pregnancy Moment: not really embarrassing…but not being able to lotion the southern half of my body. My husband lotions my legs and feet for me. He’s the best ☺️
Baby Purchases This Week: I haven’t purchased anything in the last week.
Best Quote Regarding Baby This Week: From my daughter, “When my baby sister is born, she’s going to be SO adorable!”
Gender/Sex: Still has a vagina
Movement: This child is running out of room and hurting me sometimes when she moves.
Food Cravings: Don’t really have one right now.
Food Aversions: Curry. I’ve never had much of a problem with the smell of curry, and actually enjoy it sometimes…but holy shit the other day one of my classmates had some and it smelled like straight garbage.
How’s mama?: Tired is an understatement. Annoyed by everything is an understatement. I want to be left alone. I don’t want to be touched. I don’t want anyone hovering close to me. Give me space please.
What Am I Looking Forward To: I’m looking forward to not being pregnant anymore. I’m looking forward to having this little peanut out of my body and in my arms finally. I’m looking forward to being able to reach my feet without feeling like I’ve ran a marathon. I’m looking forward to sleeping on my stomach. I’m looking forward to walking like a normal person and not like a fucking duck. I’m looking forward to wine.🤤 I’m looking forward to not disappointing my daughter when she wants to get on the floor and play and I can’t because I’m a whale. I’m looking forward to having a sufficient amount of air in my lungs again. I’m looking forward to not being so exhausted all the time.

Name: Love Live! Sunshine!! Duo/Trio Collection CD
Release Date: 2017-08-02 (Wednesday)
Price: 1700 yen (without tax)
Contents: 4 new songs and drama tracks
Twilight Tiger (Chika & Kanan) These childhood friends become tigers, shining in the morning sun—!
The costume image for the childhood friend combo of Chika and Kanan is Twilight Tiger! Imagine what kind of costume could incorporate the tiger’s distinctive colors and patterns alongside the gallantry and power the concept evokes.
Inferno Phoenix (Dia & Ruby) The sisters—clad in crimson flames—take off!
Phoenixes, reborn from hellfire, have symbolized destruction and reincarnation from time immemorial. The concept suggests the sound of energetic rock music, but how will the Kurosawa sisters’ costumes incorporate the deep crimson and flames of this image—!?
Unicorn Blizzard (You & Yoshiko) “You & Angel” become a silver-white blizzard!
A silver blizzard envelops the figure of a sparkling white beast. It gives the sense that those who approach it will freeze to death, and suggests a harsh, severe outlook on the world. Think about these two people obsessed with distinctive clothing: You, the uniform enthusiast, and Yoshiko, the fallen-angel fashionista. With this concept, what in the world will their costumes look like—!?
Hurricane Blossom (Riko & Hanamaru & Mari) The sounds of this balanced trio reverberate from under the cherry blossoms—
Hurricane Blossom was chosen as the image for this well-balanced trio composed of one person from each year. This concept conveys the beauty and melancholy of flowers scattering in a storm of cherry blossoms. You can definitely expect costumes that reflect the elegance and fragility of maidenhood ♪
(Warning: this was done quickly, my Japanese isn’t great, and my translation leans towards being liberal… hopefully it gets the point across correctly!)
“Strahovski will play the mother to Tremblay, a troubled boy who is
accidentally drawn into the conflict with the fierce alien creatures by
her ex-husband, played by Holbrook.
Strahovski, who has had runs on Dexter and 24: Live Another Day, next co-stars in Hulu’s buzzy Margaret Atwood adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale with Elizabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes. She also has two movies in the can: Dennis Iliadis-directed He’s Out There and the Marc Forster-directed drama All I See is You, the latter with Blake Lively.“ [x]
