Having A Kick Azz Summer

Did any of you out there write "have a kick ass summer" in your high school year books? No? Well, this big nerd did thinking it was the cool thing to say to all of my buddies. Wow, well that's exactly what I've been having the past month or so. Seriously, this summer has kicked MY ass. It's been a hoot and a half, but has left me with absolutely no time to devote to my sad, little blog!

I've made some lifestyle changes...I've been working out with a personal trainer twice a week. I've broken up with cheese, red meat and ice cream in order to try to lose the baby weight I've been carrying for the past five months. I don't think I can get away with saying "well, I JUST had a baby" any longer. So, I'm shooting to lose 20 pounds. I've lost 3 so far. It's a (slow) start.

Ok, so I didn't completely break up with cheese. I'm still seeing Mozzarella on the side, but only until tomato season is over. Man, I love this time of year...the tomatoes, the corn, the berries...I'm in food heaven!

I'm also starting to take on some new design projects which I will definitely share with you all once they are completed. I'm so excited to get my design modjo back after the baby hiatus. It feels great to be creative again.
I hope you all are having a "kick ass summer" as well and thanks for reading my humble blog!

Aw T! He is soooo big! And adorable! Glad to see you back! And don't worry, I'm sure you'll lose the baby weight in no time!

Keep up the hard work and it will fall off in no time. I remember whenI had a PT and I saw results after 6-8 weeks. It was hard work and I learned tons about eating well. Baby is so big now. Great pic of your two loves.

3 pounds already! Way to go :)

This summer has been a good one. Especially now that the weather is finally agreeing with us.

I am also shooting to lose 20 lbs of baby weight, but my "baby" is almost 14! Good luck, you can do it. Get out and exercise, then you can still enjoy the seasonal veggies! (with a little cheese?)

Yay for lifestyle changes! Baby weight or not, it's awesome that you're making healthy changes. Grayson should be proud of his mama. =] He's growing up so fast.

Mmmmm, caprese salad. ::wipes up drool::
