My First 10 day Shred

After I had the twins, I must admit, I gained a bit of weight. I was about 225 lbs when I was breastfeeding. I lost 25 lbs and then gained a couple back but was a steady 202 lbs.

I plan to go to Vegas with a couple of ladies I know from Tampa in July. We have started a little weight loss competition. The final weigh in will be on July 15th. The winner gets a free dinner! So far I am in the lead, I have lost 5.3 lbs!

I feel like I can't get lower than this 197 lbs! Sadly when I stepped on the scale I was 202 lbs again!!!

So I decided to try this:

10 days of "Balls to the Wall" T30! 

Take your Juice Plus Capsules or Gummies
2 Complete Shakes a Day
Half your bodyweight in ounces of water per day
30-60 minutes of exercise 4x per week
8 full hours of sleep per night
Eat your last meal by 6 pm
Breathing exercises
(DON'T STARVE YOURSELF. Eat if you're hungry!!)

No Gluten
No Dairy
No Caffeine
No Alcohol
No Artificial Preservatives
No Refined Sugar


I am on day one and I feel great! I have been cooking earlier in the day, around 3-4 pm. I had my shake for breakfast which consisted of:
- Chocolate powder
- A handful of almonds
- a tiny bit of coconut oil 
- Rolled oats
- flax meal
- Water

I have Hummus and GF tortilla chips for a snack 

Dinner was amazing!!!



I made teriyaki chicken with multi-grain medley rice!!! SO yummy!

I had another shake around 6 pm! 
- Chocolate powder
- Chocolate Silk Milk
- ice, water
- Flax Meal

WOW It is 2016 already!

Today I stumbled across my blog and geez… I miss blogging! Chasing twins is a very busy job, but I have to get back to the basics! Doing what I love! I have to be happy to make everyone else happy!

I do not even want to recap the last 4 months of 2015… So moving forward… My New Year has been pretty good! I took the kids to Busch Gardens to celebrate New Years! It was a nice night.

Tomorrow the kids are starting their FSA testing! I pray that they do ok! In the state of Florida, if you fail, You might not be going to your next grade, though they do have a couple of "Just in cases" in place. ***FINGERS CROSSED***

Since I am completely always in MOM MODE… I decided that I would start driving for UBER. So far, I have made some pretty good money and met some interesting people! I will start taking time to write about those "experiences" because I have only driven 5 times, and BOY do I have some stories?!
I will seriously make a tab for that later! 

I will be back! LOL. I will devote some time to this blog again!!!

I hope everyone had an AWESOME Easter! XOXO

P2BK 2014 ***SAND VILLAGE***

I thought that today was the day! The day that the Sand village is open! I could not go… But Gustavo took the kids… Guess what… IT OPENS ON THE 30th! Jan 30th… I thought about all the rain that we have been getting and thought that it would be delayed!
They did have a good time there though… I will make sure that they go AGAIN!
Here are some pictures that they took of the "IN PROGRESS"
I am sure that it is going to be so amazing.

BTW- If you are wondering WHERE to go… It is The Kuwait International Fair (KIF) If you look that up you will be in the right spot!
Gustavo said that a couple of shops were open, the kids played on the playground and ate McDonalds… So I am sure it wasn't a complete fail!

ALSO- I see that the blog 2:48 has a lot of pictures… (I saw it in my BLOG roll!)
Here is a sneak peek video…

I am SOOOOO excited!

Watch Out

I want everyone to understand something... Sometimes... Friends will turn on you. All of your "girl talks" can become ammunition. Conversations you have in confidence get spread to everyone else... and it hurts. Especially when you once held that person with such high regard. It is like having a Pit Bull that turns on you! It hurts and it is unexplainable....

More Menopur

I went to the doctor last night. I got my blood drawn and then a "WANDA" scan! I have 16 eggs! Basically, I have 8 eggs in my Left ovary and 8 in my Right as well. The biggest are 14-15mm. She said that is good for my 8th day! The goal is to get them to 18-20mm. I have a bit further to go. So... Now I have to take 5 menopurs/2 water injections.
1) 3 powder/1 water (Injection into one thigh)
2) 2 powder/ 1 water (Injection into the other thigh)
3) Gustavo also gives me an injection at home... To keep my ovaries sleeping
 
 


We go back on Tuesday! I am hoping that they will be big and fat! I do not know if we are going to do the retrieval on Thursday or Saturday... But I do know that it will be this week! And that is exciting. It is taking longer then I expected it would. This is day 34! Not that I did something EVERY day!
I am ready to get everything done! I know that the WORST thing will be waiting to see if I am pregnant! That will be the longest WAIT! With everything that we have coming up, I think that I will be busy enough to keep my mind occupied!
I am already making the vacation calendar! So much to do!

My Very Happy Birthday!

This was the surprise that I got when I got home! It was a great birthday! 
 
 I got a lil emotional reading the card that the kids gave me... (I quickly blamed it on my meds!)
 My yummy Red Velvet cake from CRUMBS!
 
I took a couple of pictures with my family:)
I love having the kids over here with us! I am so blessed and thankful!
Thank You to my kids, husband and Ms. Mary Ann for taking care of me!
I am a spoiled woman!


 
 
 



 












                  I went to Sephora and got some make up!
1.Burgundy Smoky
2. Black Smoky
3. I liked this palet, I have NO idea the name
4. Mascara
5. Gel Make Up remover
I also got the Chanel Rouge Allure
109 Rouge Noir
 I LOVE IT!
The CH as well!
My babies at Cheesecake Factory!
 

My fave dish! It is Chicken Romano (Or something like that)


 My Hubzy got Chicken Enchiladas! They were pretty good!
Me and my Hubzy below! I know that he also ordered me some boots (I saw it on the CC statement!) HAHAHA. I am clever!
I am a BIG 29 now! I cannot believe it! Where has the time gone?

House so far

We are building a house... It has not been an EASY project! It has actually been stressful. I am not sure if it is hard because we are in Kueait and building in Florida... Or if it is just normal while building.
I should be getting weekly updates and photos... But. I don't! I have been using only the Homebuilder Rep and I did not get a realtor.

Here are the pictures that I received a couple of weeks ago!
 I am hoping to get an update soon. We are waiting to see what the shutters, stone accents and all the colors will look like!



Gustavo and I will be going home in November to close on the house. There is so much that still needs to be done!
To help knock out some of the small things. We have been ordering online and we have been sending the packages to my Bestie's (Tina Turner) house. We will send a POD to her house and then have it shipped to our house.
So far we have gotten:
1. The kids' bathroom stuff. (Nautical Theme)
2. Decor for Mimster's bedroom (Black, Pink and White: Paris Theme)
3. Decor for DJ's room (Space-The final frontier!)
4. Small paintings and accents for around the house
5. A fireplace:)
6. We got our bed clothes

I like to try and get the things that we like opposed to having to settle for what the store has. Plus- Buying EVERYTHING at once is a heck of a task!

I am tasking Gustavo to a Honey Do list when we arrive.
I feel awful that we are not taking the kids this time, but... I think that it is better. They just got back from America in August and it was 5k for the tickets! Since we are not going to be in the States very long, We decided that it was best for the kids to stay put. We will be doing a lot of running around and there will not be much for the kids to do.
(No TV, NO video games, No toys, ETC.)
I am so excited to get to the house and start decorating the house!
I have SO many ideas in my head!
I am really excited to see my family at home and I hope that I will be able to see them all!

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2013

What is a LUNAR ECLIPSE? An eclipse in which the moon appears darkened as it passes into the earth's shadow.

Basically- The Moon passes BEHIND Earth! The shadow of Earth falls on the Moon!

We have one coming up October 18, 2013!!!

 I guess Kuwait it will be the 19th! (Around 0250 is when the MAXIMUM effect will take place)
See Link below for more info!
Eclipse Info


DJ is a total SPACE nut! So I will make sure that he gets to see this!

Arab Money, American Presidents or Vice Versa

I was in the Kuwait International Airport waiting for the kids to fly in and I saw this:
PRESIDENT GRANT
PRESIDENT LINCOLN 
I do not know why... But I was kinda bothered... I sent it to my best friend TINA TURNER and her first reaction was... "Wow, That is a bad ass photoshop!" (Hmmm)
(She is in photography school, so I guess she would see that first)
VIVA is a phone company here and the ad was in ARABIC... So I have no idea what it was saying. 
I guess I was bothered because... I am sure that if ONE of the Kuwaiti Kings had something like this done it would be INSTANT HAREM! "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!!!"
Maybe I am being sensitive... 

Kuwait Towers

I am almost embarrassed to say that FINALLY after 2 1/2 years, I have made it to the Kuwait Towers!
I know it was closed... But that doesn't mean we should take the kids to see them and RUN around a bit!
 It was VERY windy!
 It looks like I am hurting Mims... But I wasn't!

 DANG! You see how TALL DJ is already! He makes my 5' 9' look like 5' 2"!!!

 SMOOOOOOOTCHIESSSSS
 I love this man! 
 DJ is always SO creative!
 PEACE!
 Run baby Run!
 These Bunny ears! Photo bombing EVERY photo!
 Siblings
 Happy to be at Ruby Tuesdays!
 Love our lil lady!
 Excited
 I am the NEXT 007 Girl! LOL
 Smiles all around the table!
 She loves her Bubba
 This is a classic!
 We just had appetizers and split a desert!
 Running around 
 My Fam
Just some pictures of the Kuwait Towers 

 


She was RUNNING all over the place!  

They always want the SPECIAL drinks!  

The city was lit up! This picture gives it NO justice!  
  
 Getting more sugar from my Hubzy!

 At the park

 Gustavo Mi Amor Amber
 Walking on to the BEACH... The water was WAY out!
 She was getting sea shells and I found a hermit crab!

 I think this says... Mom was MOTHER... DJ Art!
 Here is a nice shot!
