Day Oneeeee :)

Today I am began my 30 days of shredding in an attempt to get my pre-T body back. If I am successful at this I will be enlisting the help of a doctor to get my pre-J body back :)

So here's the plan. I am going to do the 30 day shred everyday during Tarynn's nap, and continue my efforts at the gym and excersising outside weather permitting. I go to Cal Fit a few times a week and do spin, group strength training, cardio machines, or weights.

I am not really going to go on a diet. I cook pretty healthy as it is. I am just going to try to eat crap in moderation and calm down on the Reese's and Rockstars. I have been consistently eating 800 calories a day in Reese's. Horrible, I know.

So today....

I did shred (level 1 with 5lb weights, had to put weights down during last shoulder excersise) during T's nap and did spin at the gym.

I didn't have any peanut butter cups or Rockstars, but I did eat a handful of peanut M&Ms, a taco from the drive-thru mexican place, and made pot pie for dinner.

Starting weight 132 lbs 22.2% body fat.

Wish list Wed

A fellow blogger nbjenni does wish list Wednsdays on her blog. I decided to join in on the fun.

I will keep it simple for the first one. I would really like my own personal sun to follow me around all day. I hate being cold and wish it was summer year round. I would also like it to not get dark until around 8:30 p.m. I don't think that's too much to ask right?

I would also like a driver. I'm tired of driving back and forth to Hollister and it would be wonderful to enjoy a cocktail and not worry about transportation.

Reusable coffee sleeves

Another craft that combines a few of my favorite things-being green, coffee, and handmade. I found a few tutorials on how to make these reusable coffee sleeves...

Here are the instructions on how to make this fabric sleeve from Imagine Fabric.

Here's another tutorial from

Green, coffee, handmade, and breast cancer awarness-what could be better? Here is the pattern.

This is such an inexpensive and cute gift idea. You can personalize it based on the recipient.

So here's the problem-I don't sew or crochet. My mom does though and I think I will be asking her to make me one. I'm thinking I want a crocheted one with a flower on it. Maybe I'll have her make me a few different styles.

And last but not least-In case you are like me and can't crochet or sew and don't have a mamma who can here are some available to purchase...

Tarynn has been inspired

National Craft month has inspired Tarynn to start crafting. Today she decided to be my little "helper" while I was working.
