Big Fat Liar

OK, sorry guys, that picture was just wishful thinking. I photoshopped us into it. So, go ahead, you can call me a big fat liar. I really wish I had a fun trip to be blogging about, but nothing to exciting has been happening our way. We've mostly been home because we've had a few bugs passing around.

It's kind of been nice to slow down for awhile and not have a lot to do. Devan's been working on potty training. Some days he does great and others are a disaster, but he has been making progress. He's getting pretty good at identifying alphabet letters. Tristan is walking really good now and goes further every day without falling. These last couple days he's looked more and more like a toddler and not a baby anymore.

With all the bugs going around I haven't been able to workout for the last 2 weeks, but I'm thinking I'll start back up again today. It's so hard to start after taking a break! I'm also going to go back on the fat resistance diet. If any of you are looking for a diet I really suggest this one. It's very healthy and doesn't take out calories your body needs. About a year after I had Devan, I went on this. I had gained a lot of weight with Devan and when I had my body fat checked it was at a whopping 26% Well, after about 2 months of being on this diet, I had my body fat checked again and it was at 19%! I have to add I was working out also for around an hour 5 days a week. Something else about it I found amazing was usually when you loose weight you loose some muscle along with body fat, but I had lost pure fat, no muscle! Anyway, I'm a firm believer in this diet. I will never again go on one of those, starve yourself and turn your body to moosh diets!

Enough about that though. Yesterday, I put ant killer over our lawn because I found a big mound. That's one thing I really hate about Texas. The ants are just terrible, and ant bites are horrible. I'm hoping this will get rid of them! I'm hoping once I get rid of them I'll be able to do a little bit of landscaping in our yard, but we'll see. There's always so many things I want to do with the house, and then I remember it all takes $$$, and usually to much of it! I really want to put in a patio in the back, but realistically that won't happen until at least next year. It's so fun to be in a house though and be able to work on projects like this. I can't believe that we'll have been here a year on February 28!

Oh one other thing, I inherited Chad's Itouch because he got an Iphone for Valentine's Day. Anyway, Devan really like some of the little games on it and I was helping him play it yesterday. He took it away from me, as if to say Mom I can do it myself, exited the application we were in, and said I want the fishes and went into that application. If you haven't used the Itouch before, just to put this into perspective, it's a whole different technology and it took me awhile to get use to how the buttons click and going from screen to screen, but here was Devan doing it all easy! Anyway, I was in shock and amazement. I called Chad and he couldn't believe it. He was even more amazed when he watched Devan do it himself. I guess he's going to be a computer whiz like his daddy!

Here's some more photoshop I've been doing lately.

Lana, I had my suspicions about you and that beach! But it looked so good! Sorry ya'll have been sick. I was wondering where you were for body pump a week ago! Yes, I went (stop laughing), but could only stay for 20 minutes b/c Evelyn was crying too hard! (That just shows how often I go!) Anyway, I want to get my 'butt into shape' too! (literally!) That's crazy Devan knew the iTouch so well! Kids these days...

Man your boys are adorable. I was wondering what kind of diet/exercise stuff you were doing. You look awesome. I am way jealous. you need to let me in on your little secret. I gined about 25 lbs within months of Kendall's accident. I guess stress does not do my body good. Then I have gained about 10 since. I have been loosing some weight, but it is so hard. I have lost about 17 since having Skylar, but my body looks like a yucky mommy body. Blah. Anyways, I would love to know what you are doing. If you don't mind. Thanks for the invite to you blog.

I love all your pictures. And I am very glad that you aren't on the beach sunning yourself right now, because that makes me feel a little better about having no beach, sun, warmth, etc. Sorry for all the sickness that came your way, hope you are all over it!
