Kyra is 4 years old!!!




Nicknames: Kyra Bug


Clothing size: 4t-5t


Personality: Well I suppose it comes with the age, she has become a very independent and bratty little thing!! She intentionally doesn't listen, talks back, and does things when she is told not to. But over all she is pretty sweet. She loves her brother and plays for large amounts of time together!!

Things I Could Do Without:  your attitude.....I fear for high school if you are starting this young.


Item/Toy We Love The Most: Puzzles, coloring books, and paint keeps you busy.

Item/Toy You Love The Most: Monkeys, and My Little Ponies

Things I’m Loving Most Right Now:  Some of the super sweet things you say. Even when you are being an absolute terror you come back and say things that are just too sweet!


Things You’re Loving Most Right Now: Riding your new bike, movies, bubbles, and running around!!

30 day Detox: Day 19

Not sure this is considered a detox at this point so much as a lifestyle change!! Either way it's been a change for the best!!!

My confidence has grown and I am so happy with my progress!! 

My one hope is that Dustin will continue down this road. I can't control his food during the day, and I can't make him workout more than he does at work!! I can only hope my dedication and continued progress will make him want to keep it up!!

30 day Detox: Day 18

So I was gonna do Pilates this week while Dustin is gone, but I'm gonna do body rock cuz it's way harder and I'll likely see better results in just a week!! Feel lazy since the weather is coming in and walks will be out of the picture pretty much this week!! 

Had a kinda sweet breakfast with cereal!! But it's almost lunch time and I am going to have a protein shake!! And tonight we are having Chicken Enchilladas inside a squash boat that I'm pretty excited about!! 

I was down another pound this morning, but doesn't officially count until Thursday's or Friday's this week!!

30 day Detox: Days 15-17

Whoa boy did we kinda fall off the clean eating this weekend, we still made some better choices than usual. But way worse than we should be. I hope it doesn't derails us entirely!! Tomorrow I'm kicking it back hardcore!! And Dustin will be in the field and can only eat what he is fed and since the army is all about eating right I'm sure he will be doing fine!!

While he is gone and since I don't have school for a while, my workouts should be super hardcore all week. We will be weighting in probably Friday rather than Thursday!! So I can't wait to see what changes can occur!!

30 day detox: Day 14

Woohoo it's hard to believe we are already in 2 weeks!! I feel so much better, my appetite and cravings are so much better, and the numbers are really beginning to show both in the scale and in inches!! It's not obvious to us yet, as it take 4 weeks for you to notice, 8 for close friends, and 12 for everyone else. So we have a little ways to go. But we are making good progress!! This week between the two of us we lost 5.4 lbs and 3.75 inches!!! At 4 weeks I will give you our over all difference!! But it's looking pretty good!!

Today I didn't eat nearly as much as I should as I wasn't hungry because I was so busy!! But tomorrow we are gonna have blueberry pancakes for breakfast so I expect that I will need to put in some good cardio to burn it back off. I also plan on doing abs!!! Dustin is going out tomorrow, hopefully he doesn't ruin his hard work with too many beers.

Really wanna start seeing some muscle definition, but I joined a group that I am enjoying having their support each day!!

30 day detox: Day 13

Well the main reason we started this diet was to help Dustin pass tape. All tho I would love to move away from this foresakin town lie time now, I am really happy for him loosing enough we right to pass tape this morning!!

Hopefully now that he has passed he will continue to work hard for himself anyways. 

But I'm taking today to be grumpy, and pout about the fact we are stuck living in Killeen 22 more months. Guess it's time to start really maki my business count. I need the perfect portfolio before we do make the move!!

Random Ramblings of a WFHM: The day of a Dr Appointment

Bzzzz bzzzzz bzzzz my fit bit alarm is going off in my wrist!! Hey awesome I got to wake up to my alarm not a kid, I love this now I can actually wake up on my own time while still laying in bed!! The makings of a good day!!!! 

T-minus 2.5 hours until appointment time.

CRASH, MOMMY!!!! What the heck was that, oh yeah I have kids, crap that sound came from the kitchen what did she break now??? Jump out of bed and run to Kitchen to cereal all over the floor. Oh the joys of a very independent, "I'll let mom sleep in" almost 4 year old. Time to clean up mess #1!

T-minus 2.5 hours (yup so much for that calm wake up in bed stuff haha) until appointment time.

Make strawberry milk, open strawberry yogurt, and open a banana. One kid up and fed!! Not bad, now I can drink some coffee. Sit down time to relax and get the day going!! Feet up, ahhhh not a terrible morning, cereal was easy enough to clean up. I don't know why she was even getting cereal when she wanted yogurt and a banana....who knows. This day is going okay after all, I'll wake Darren up in like 20 mins and get him ready and myself ready and we should make good time. WAAAHHH, oh guess not he's up now!! Well better to get him. Hot coffee onto the counter it goes.

T-minus 2 hours until appointment time.

Milk poured thank goodness I remembered to run the dishwasher last night so I had a clean Sippy cup!! Banana and cereal on his table, check now I can get back to that coffee, which is now just kinda warm. Oh well maybe it's a good thing he woke up before I had to wake him up now he will have more time to eat. Sit down to finish my coffee. SPLASH!!! What was that??? Uh oh mom my milk spilt.....of course it did mess #2...it's okay I'll let the dogs in to clean it. Yup I let that happen cuz I wanna drink my coffee!

T-minus 1.5 hours until appointment time.

Okay time to get dressed. I'll wear that black and white maxi dress it's so nice out and that sounds wonderful!! Now where is is....oh probably in one of the three full baskets of clean clothes in the laundry room. Dump them on the bed. Oh there it is at the bottom doesn't that figure? Aww dressed and even managed a little mascara!! So far so good. Oh look who followed me to the bathroom but my entire entourage!! Oh Darren your little smile is so cute, go ahead and wipe your sticky banana fingers all over the bottom of my dress, no one will notice that down there...haha no shame. Now to get the kids dressed!! 

T-minus about 1.25 hours until appointment time.

Yay kids dressed!! Time to start packing the diaper bag, get shoes on. Turn around , Darren has Kyra's drinkable yogurt in hand, is that empty....no it's not. Why would it be.....yogurt all down his front and all over the couch....mess #3!! Kyra take the yogurt and throw it away while I get him a new shirt. Mom he won't let me have it....take it....mom it's all over my dress now too....ugh seriously? Go to pick him up and he cranks around great now I have yogurt all over my dress again too.

T-minus 1 hour until appointment time.

Run around like chicken with head cut off to get everyone new clothes. Kids dressed, now what will I wear? Dig dig dig where the heck are all my shirts? Oh yeah I haven't done my laundry yet just the kids, hubby's and towels!! Well heck what am I gonna wear??? Oh good thing Dustin is bigger than me. Wearing is shirt here we go. Now to load the kids into the car and get across town to be 15-20 mins early as advised. 

T-minus 45 mins until appointment time.

What the heck, did I seriously just drive all the way across town without any traffic, across two school zones, and 5 lights in 5 mins? Well heck now I am freaking 40 mins early. Uh wonderful....guess we get to sit in the car for like 15 mins, and hope they take us in early.  Head into the dr appointment cuz I can't handle Kyra repeating lets go inside 100 more times. 

T-minus 30 mins until appointment.

Wait.....wait....wait.....wait....oh man trying so hard to be patient. Don't rip the magazine, don't play peekaboo under the table, stop making Darren scream...where is the stinking Doctor...why do I have to be here early...there is like no one else waiting for an appointment I don't understand what appointment times are for....

T-minus not minus anymore it's 10 mins past the appointment time.

Oh finally our turn. Really all that wait for a 5 mins vitals check, and 5 mins prepping for 6 shots? How did that even happen? Finally we can go home. We survived that appointment, now we repeat that all again next month for Kyra's appointment!!

Time 20 mins after appointment time!!!



30 day detox: Days 11 and 12

I have to say today was supposed to go well, we had plans to start the 3 day military diet to help Dustin get ready for his tape test Thursday, it claims in just 3 days you can loose up to 10 lbs. and we were gonna get our weeks worth of groceries this morning since Dustin was scheduled to work a later shift!! However, he came home after PT to tell me he had been changed back to his regular schedule....so no groceries, which is a major problem since we didn't have anything to eat for lunch really. 

So at lunch we made shakes and replaced the meal which works out fine. But unfortunately we couldn't start the diet because we didn't exactly have the stuff we needed to follow the diet, but maybe sometime during thhis 30 day detox we will try to do it, could be interesting! Well we grabbed salads from Panera for dinner on our way to get groceries!! We ended up with only half salads, which after almost 2 weeks of clean eating is actually enough for a meal, now that our stomachs are used to eating less more often instead of more less often!! And we loaded up on almost exclusively fruit veggies and meat this trip!! Aside from some kids snacks!!!

Today started off busy, but I still managed to have Greek yogurt and grab a coffee with protein powder to go on our way out the door for an appointment!! And come lunch time I didn't have a huge appetite and decided to just have a piece of toast with almond butter and honey!!

Another scale victory this week!! One more pound down!! That's a total of 4 in two weeks...however hopefully Thursday will be good proof of that!!

Went for a long 2 mile walk pushing a stroller that with both kids probably weights like 80 lbs!! It was a hard walk, but great cardio!! Feeling good, tonight we are having mushroom and broccoli casserole yummy veggies!! And another dog walk probably before bed!!
