Get in my Tummy!!

I have made the switch from Weight Watchers to MyFitnessPal! It is different counting calories.  Weight Watchers, fruits and veggies are free but with calories they are not.

I am doing 1336 calories a day and not eating my workout calories unless I worked out really hard.
I have been slacking some in that department.

Some of my fave foods right now are

This is delish!! I got mine at Sam's Club! It is filling and a great snack!

Fiber One 90-Calorie Chocolate Peanut Butter Chewy Bars 5-ct.
I normally eat one of these every morning for breakfast. They are yummy!

I eat a salad every day for lunch. Balsamic Vinegarette dressing!!

There are still so many foods I love but try to avoid.
With Easter fastly approaching and all the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs are going to be in baskets.
I am promising to having one egg throughout this time and no more than that. 

Everyone have a great day!!

Weigh In Wednesday and weekend recap

If you are checking out my blog today, go to the side and become a follower and I will return the favor!


Today is the link up with Erin and Alex!
I was down .8 lbs.  So I am at 156 lbs!! 
I will take that.  I have not been getting up and exercising this week because dangit, my bed is so comfortable!! Our house is still not use to the time change!

The weekends are still my biggest downfall!
I cave and eat something I shouldn't every time.  

So this week is dedicated to staying within my calories each and every day!

Here is a recap of the ROCKSTAR birthday!!

The invites I did by spending $2 on the paper and printing myself

Jacer's Birthday cake that my sister and I did.  Mainly Amber my sister
Maybe $15 spend on it 
I did buy 24 cupcakes in case the cake was a flop! ($13)

Guitars for the kids to decorate and take home with them.
Approx. $20 (Hubs was not happy about cutting these out)
But the kids loved them!

The goody bags!
They had the rocker sunglasses, tattoos, stickers, microphone, glow stick, ring pop and fruit snacks
Approx. $30 (made 24 bags)

We did soup and smoked pork, chips, veggies and chips and salsa! 

It was a wonderful day and the birthday boy had a blast!

Me and my Bestie Samantha!
It was great to get to hang out with her for a while!
Love her!

My sexy awesome hubby!
I love him more than anything!
My handsome boys! 
Jacer and Monkey
Jacer and his dirt bike he got from his grandparents 
for his birthday! He loves it!!
My new green pants! I didn't look that bad I didn't think!
Hubs trying out the dirt bike
Love this picture!!

Love his boots?

Everyone have a great day! Make sure and come by again soon!

It's Friday!!

Thank god its Friday meme

This week has seemed to take forever!!
I am so glad for Friday. 

We have a very busy this weekend!
Tonight I get to go watch cattle sale
Elder's Cattle Sale
I am super excited, NOT!

I don't mind being married to a farmer and
I don't mind helping him but
I hate sitting at the Sale Barn all night. 
I smell like a manure pit when we leave and then my car ends up stinking.
My boys will not want to sit down and be still whatsoever. 
So to make the hubs happy we are going to go for a little while. 
The bad thing is I have to go home first and then come back since I do not have
any clothes but my heels and nice clothes.

Then Saturday I get to go shopping for the big birthday party on Sunday. 
Then a reception tomorrow night to celebrate one of my friend's wedding!

Then Sunday is the big 6th Birthday party for Jacer. 
We are doing the Rockstar theme. 
He is super excited and I am super anxious.
I have nothing completed or ready whatsoever!!

But I will get it done, my sister are coming to my house tomorrow and they are helping me.
We are having cardboard guitars for the kids to play on. 
I am making a guitar cake. First time ever making their themed birthday cake.
Hopefully it turns out.  Jacer is a little worried about me doing this. 
He requested I buy one just in case. 
Then we are also have soup and sandwiches!
That part is easy!

For this week in the fitness department, I have felt awesome!

I have been eating good. Yesterday I had a bad night in the food department but it was pizza and ice cream and I worked out three times yesterday.  So I am ok with it. I have been eating alot of fruit and veggies throughout the day for snacks.  


I have started Jillian Michael Ripped in 30
Jillian Michaels: Ripped in 30
I love her videos and they seem to work. 
I have missed a few days but do it almost everyday.
I tried her yoga last night and holy smokes was it hard. 
Yoga is not easy whatsoever. 

Then I go to the gym during lunch.  I am back to doing the class and I am trying to run a mile on the dreadmill before it starts.  I am not quite up to running the entire mile.  But I am getting there.  I believe once I can run outside I will be able to do it longer. 

Well I still have alot of work to get finished and hope to get out of here early!

Everyone have rockin' good weekend!

Weigh In (with a happy dance to go along)


Today is the annual weigh in Wednesday! 
And I am ok with that!
I worked hard this last week.
I had a few bad moments...
I got past those.
I past up cake this morning! Can I get an amen for that!!

Exercise should be about rewarding your body, not punishing it!

On the scale was down 2 lbs! 
I am at 156.8!
I know I am not below 155 and I keep teeter tottering with that number but I am getting close again.
In my mind I wonder why I let myself slip.
I could be almost to 150 by now. 
But oh well.

This is the first season I have watched the Biggest Loser
Biggest Loser Season 14 Episode 4 Recap
And watching Dani and all of the others are so inspiring.
Dani is my favorite! She has come so far! I hope she rocks it.

Well yesterday I wore a new dress that I got and I loved it and felt good in it!
Dress: Old Navy
Belt: Maurices
Boots: Had for some time

Here are some pics from Jacer's Birthday and his friend's party.
His family Rockstar Birthday party is this Sunday!

This is at 10:00 p.m. on his bday after his great-grandpa's visitation

Him and his buddies watching a movie before bed.
Monkey wanted to be in the middle of the boys all night 
and they wanted nothing to do with him LOL!
And if you look over in the left hand corner you will how 
my Hubby handled the boys (SLEPT)

And this is Jacer's Leprechaun trap for school! 
He loved it and was super proud of it. 

Well peace out everyone! Have a wonderful week!

Here is some motivation for the week ahead!

Finish the Sentence...

So today I am linking up with Holly and her buddy Jake at Life of Jake, (who is super funny and as soon as my computer quits being stupid, I will be his newest follower!!

They are doing


So here it goes:

1. People always tell me.... that my sisters and I could be twins

2. In the movie based on my life... it would probably be boring to be honest. Not much excitement going on here in Karie world

3. Typically, I end up regretting.... eating something daily. Or possibly not eating something.

4. I always ask to leave off the....pickles, mustard, sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo.

5. Kim and Kanye really... mean nothing to me. Don't pay attention whatsoever.

6. My Parents always reminded me...that my kids will be 3x worse than I was. Oh lord help me. 

7. Every single day I.....brush my teeth! 

8. This one time in College..went to a local community college and not went back to finish yet. 

9. My grossest habit is...digging in people's ears.  My kids hate this, if I see ear wax I hold them down and get it out.  I even do this to my husband.

10. My latest white lie was... well I am not going to tell on myself. But I am sure it is something to my son to make him be quiet and quit whining. 

11. I know all the words to... Sir Mix Alot Big Butts Don't Lie

12. When I grow up...who knows. Whatever the future holds for me will happen. 

13. Sexy time is...whenever we get a time when our kids are both asleep, not in our bed and Sunday Funday (as we like to call it)!

14. I will never, yellow snow!!

15. I think it's hilarious...when people are idiots!!

There you have it!! Everyone have a great weekend! Ours will be hard. 

My husband grandpa passed away Wednesday and the visitation is tonight and funeral tomorrow. 

Today is this handsome young man's 6th birthday!

Wish me luck tomorrow night, we are having 4 extras boys come stay with us for his birthday!

And here is Monkey's favorite spot, riding in the tractor with Daddy!

Again Everyone have a great weekend!!

It is time for a self-intervention on myself!

If I want to be healthy and fit, then I need to quit sabotaging myself.

I don't get why I do it. I hate that I do it. I do so good and then 
I take 10 steps backwards and then another 10 steps back.

It drives me nuts that I do this.  

I want this, I want these 30 lbs to come off. I want to feel good about myself. 

My hubs tells me I look good, but I don't feel it.
 I don't like having the spare tire when I sit.
I don't like pulling at my shirt all the time. 
I don't like always wearing baggy shirts. 

But I am taking steps back in the right direction. 

I started the C25K and have started Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30.  

I am determined and want the body that I am proud of.  


I am going to work hard for this. 


I did not join the weigh in yesterday, as I was up and was frustrated and at home with terrible internet service.

But I am 158.8 and plan to be down to 150 by the end of March.

I am sticking to my Weight Watchers plan and points. 

I also have the motivation of earning some cash through Erin's Dietbet I joined. 

My pic for joining the dietbet


Check back tomorrow linking up with Holly for the


Can't wait!
