Gaining!!! Ack!

I have been slowly gaining some of my weight back. I knew this would happen. I have been feeling very down and I seem to find comfort in food. We have also had a lot going on, and that makes being creative with food seem to never happen. So, there has been a lot of ice cream and pizza going on here. I haven't had much time for exercise either. Which, probably leads me to feeling depressed. I know that when I am running and being active, my mind feels better. So, starting tomorrow (June 1st), I will be active and aware once again. I really can't wait. This is something I need for myself. I want to be the best wife and mother that I can be. I can't do that when I have extra weight on me and when I feel bad about myself.
So, with that being said, here is the plan. I am going to start on my very own cereal diet that got me down 80 pounds before! Well, it got me started! I didn't do it the entire time, but it kicked off my weightloss. I will be eating cereal for two meals and having a decent dinner. This also means that I will have pizza, if I would like, for dinner. I never try to avoid the things I like, that leads to my downfall. For exercise, I will stick with what I love. I will be running and doing yoga. I really like Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper's yoga dvds. Those will really help!
So, I am going to treat this as if I am starting over at the beginning. I want the same feeling I had when I was 247 pounds! I knew I had to get the weight off. So, I want to go into this with the same frame of mind.
On to family news:
We finally got a playground. We have been waiting to find one at a good price, and we think this one will do! The kids are so excited.

The kids got to enjoy the sprinkler while daddy set up the swingset.

Cassidy decided to wear her helmet! Ha!

Stella finally got her groove, I mean, haircut! LOL

They had to shave her ears, due to some matting, but she still looks great!

We have been busy finishing 1st grade! Jaden is doing so well. I can't wait to see all of the things he will learn in the 2nd grade! I am hoping to plan a lot more for the upcoming year and have things a little more scheduled. I also hope to plan a couple of really cool field trips. One of them being the Creation Museum. We can't wait to go there!
I hope everyone has had a fabulous May! Happy Memorial Day!
Freedom isn't Free!
