14th Work-out Wednesday

Here are my stats:
Height: 5'4
Beginning Measurements
  • Around the Belly: 39 in. (47 in. 38 weeks pregnant with my daughter in April- I was only 45 in. with my son, but I weighed almost 10 lbs. more)
  • Waist: 38in.
  • Around my bottom: 40.25 in.
  • Upper Arm: 12.25 in.
  • Inner Thigh: 23.5 in
Goal: flatter tummy - 34 in. around my belly (so I don't look pregnant still when I wear my pre-pregnancy shirts), 140 by September 1st. OR to fit into my 7-9 jeans comfortably.

Ideally would love to be 120-125 again and 30-32 in again.


Pre-pregnancy: 131 lbs. Gained 36 lbs. when pregnant:  167 lbs. (had my baby April 19, 2011) My baby girl is 6 months old today!
Beginning weight: 147 lbs.

Today's Weight: 135.6 - actually earlier this week I weighed 134.5. It's been making me nervous though about having enough milk to nurse or it could just be my baby girl wants more of the solid foods. I get paranoid about having enough milk though until I'm done nursing. I nursed my son until he was 15 months....he was really sick at the year mark so it was too hard to wean him then.

Today's Measurements:
  • Around the Belly: 37 in. - I lost 1/2 inch
  • Waist: 36.5 in. - lost 1/2 in.
  • Around my bottom: 38.25 in. - lost 0
  • Upper Arm: 11.5 in. - lost 1/4 in.
  • Inner Thigh: 22 in - lost 1/4 in.
I figured I'd share my measurements today since I will be out of town, leaving Saturday and coming back next Thursday. I guess now I need to focus on toning - which I really stink at!

68th Fashionable Fridays

Here's what I wore one morning to run errands in the snow we got last week. Fortunately we don't have snow anymore, but it has gotten a lot colder. I love wearing my green hat in this weather though!


Yeah my son doesn't technically match (at least both Elmo) and that shirt keeps getting unbutton - time to store it away. He had just woken up.

13th Work-out Wednesday

Here are my stats:
Height: 5'4
Beginning Measurements
  • Around the Belly: 39 in. (47 in. 38 weeks pregnant with my daughter- I was only 45 in. with my son, but I weighed almost 10 lbs. more)
  • Waist: 38in.
  • Around my bottom: 40.25 in.
  • Upper Arm: 12.25 in.
  • Inner Thigh: 23.5 in
Goal: flatter tummy - 34 in. around my belly (so I don't look pregnant still when I wear my pre-pregnancy shirts), 130 by December 31st.

Pre-pregnancy: 131 lbs. Gained 36 lbs. when pregnant:  167 lbs.
Beginning weight: 147 lbs.



Today's Weight: 136 lbs. - not much change. I've been doing a lot of cleaning and reorganizing, but I've eaten lots of junk because I don't want to go shopping when we'll be leaving on a little vacation soon. Plus I've been stressed trying to get so much done!


I wanted to share with you a link to 60 second stress solutions from Parents.com. I know for some people when they get overly stressed, it's very hard to lose weight. I know just being a mom and trying to get so much done and spend time with your kids, I've been super stressed these past couple of weeks. When I tried the move in the picture below, it actually did wonders to help me relieve tension and stress!

What are some of your stress relievers?

67th Fashionable Fridays - Paint that Nail!



Happy Friday everyone!! Today im going to show you how to do these cupcakes!


What I used~
-OPI: unknown name the label came off (the base pink color)
-Wet n Wild: party of five glitters
-OPI: pink-ing of you (sheer pink color over the glitter)
-Kiss nail art paint: beach pink (cupcake cup)

-Studio M: whose that girl 
-Revlon top speed: lily (light purple/lavender) 
-China Glaze: ruby deer (red) 
You could used whatever colors you want just have fun with it!! (:

First paint you nails a light pink color then put a coat of glitter


Now put a sheer pink color over the glitter


Then put one more coat of glitter and now it gives it more of a layered effect


To make the cup for the cupcake just make a square and then curve it up just a little bit and then take a thin paint brush, striper or toothpick and make little lines on the cup part

Make three big dots going along the edge of the cup, you could use the back of a paint brush, dotting tool or a bobby pin


Then make a half circle connecting to the dots to make the cupcake! 



Add different colored dots for sprinkles I used a toothpick 



To make the heart I used a toothpick and just cut the tip off and made a dot the dragged it down and did the same to the other half


Just add a top coat and thats it your done!! Have a great weekend!(:

Thanks Kristyn! These look so adorable and fun - perfect for a birthday party too =D

Barter/Trade or Donate with Scrappy Gifts

I am looking Christmas gifts now and prizes for my son's 3rd birthday party on November 30th. You don't have to own a business/shop to trade; you can just be a crafter/artist, etc.

So if you have something to offer that would make a great prize, leave me a comment or shoot me an e-mail at ScrappyDiva2129 at yahoo dot com. You can trade for an item on my site, Scrappy Gifts or donate it to get some publicity/advertising for your site. If you donate, I'll happily post pictures and links to your site on mine.
I'm pretty flexible though so if you're interested in my products, let me know what items you have to trade. I have an almost 3 year old son and a 5 1/2 month old daughter.



For the PARTY - I would especially love any gift certificates, Towel Bibs, toddler ties, child sized hooded towels, games, learning toys/activities, unique gifts or any local gifts for the Southeastern Idaho area.

For CHRISTMAS - I'd especially love to trade advertising/product for towel bibs, rompers, pettipants, peg boards/coat hooks, fabric/canvas totes for storage, baby girl shoes, baby girl dresses, carseat strap covers, anything for a three year old boy, hooded towels, etc.

Today's Weight: 136.2 so I've lost a pound in the last week.
I've been reorganizing basically my whole house to make more room for my baby girl's stuff as well as turning my scrapbook room into a more conducive room for having Joy School, parties, or crafting time with friends. I was exhausted the first couple days, but now I just have little things here and there to find spots for or waiting for money to get some large storage bins.
