Love, weightloss, and heartache

Today I would like to talk about 3 things, I will start with the good stuff first:

 

 

Yesterday was my 2 year wedding¬†anniversary. ūüôā I worked really hard to get and keep my husband, so my wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life. (As it should be lol)¬†

My husband is not a romantic person, never has been, but on our wedding day, he chose to wrote his own vows, it was the cutest thing ever! Yesterday he pulled another one on me. He works nights, so we don’t usually get to spend holidays (unless he is off work) or birthdays together. Yesterday, like any other day he got ready to go to work, and left. About 15 mins later he walks back through the door with a dozen roses and says “Oh I forgot, I’m not going to work today, I took the day off weeks ago” How cute is that!? I love that man despite all of our differences, and trust me, there are plenty! We have different religious beliefs, political beliefs, music and movie tastes, and I wouldn’t have him any other way ‚̧

 

For our¬†anniversary Brandon told me that I could have $100 extra to spend on Black Friday as long as I spent it on myself. Let me tell you…he could not have picked a better present. I am a HUGE Black Friday shopper. Oh yes, I am one of “those people” that will knock you over to get to that last tickle me elmo. I have an App on my phone that will alert me when ads get leaked, I print out maps, get together a team of helpers (which include my mother, bestfriend, and mother in law) and I plan out my trip a week in advance. I shop from usually 6 pm thanksgiving night until about 9 am Black Friday.¬†

With my new weightloss adventure I figure I can pretty much eat what I want on Thanksgiving because I will easily work it off that night/next morning. So that’s a plus right!?

 

Speaking of weightloss, I’ve hit another milestone! I’ve¬†officially¬†lost ¬†30 lbs! 30 lbs since¬†September! I didn’t think it was possible lol. I feel SO much better, I don’t get winded walking up the stairs, I can walk around the mall without having to take a break! All my clothes are falling off of me! Which is a blessing and a curse, it’s a great feeling, until I’m walking around work pulling up my pants every 3 mins lol! I don’t want to buy more clothes while I’m still losing weight, seems like a waste of money. Thankfully my mother-in-law is my weightloss partner and started out a bit smaller then me, so she’s given me some of her jeans that don’t fit anymore, but even those are falling off!¬†

 

Well, now that we have talked about the good things in my life, lets move on to the bad ones ūüė¶

 

My daughter is extremely smart. She is 4 1/2 years old and can read! (She actually just looked over my shoulder and asked who I was telling she can read LOL) 

 But there is 1 thing that really bothers me. She flat refuses to poop in the potty. I mean, REFUSES. She has no problem peeing in the potty, and has been doing that for a year. 

I know people are like “oh she will go when she is ready, don’t push her” I don’t see how other parents deal with it. I don’t see how she can read, but won’t poop in the¬†toilet. ¬†And let me tell you, we have tried EVERYTHING. and I mean that. we did the potty chart, the rewards, praise, taking away pull ups. We even went as far as to making her sit on the toilet until she had to go. That worked for awhile, but for the last 2 weeks, not even that has worked. She sat on the toilet for 3 HOURS last week, and just wouldn’t do it. I know she needed to, she had done so in her underwear. She sat in that bathroom and cried, screamed, begged, and said really mean things like she didn’t want me to be her mommy anymore and wanted to move out.

 

I’m worried about her health, it’s been a week since she has had a full movement. We have tried miralax,¬†mineral¬†oil, and a strait laxative, nothing yet. we have taken her to a doctor who just said she had constipation, and eventually she will go. When!? Am I overreacting on this?¬†

 

I am at the end of my rope with this, last Friday we bought some pull ups and put her in them (because we assumed the¬†medicine¬†would make her have to go) and she¬†hasn’t. Last night my husband noticed she had gone in her pull up a bit and asked her to TRY to go to the bathroom and she through a FIT and refused to do it, so he just tried to¬†wipe¬†her off and put a new pull up on and she ran from him and cried and screamed again.¬†¬†We had to¬†discipline her and put her to bed. I don’t know what else to do..I’m so worried about not getting this under control and they won’t let her into school, or worse she ends up in the hosp. with something wrong with her intestines or something..

 

My final idea is to simply ignore the subject all together. No praise if she does go to the bathroom, no punishment if she doesn’t Maybe if I make it seem like it isn’t a big deal, just part of life she will just give up and do it. I’ll let you know how that goes..

  • I did not see the beach for the first time until 2 years ago, on my honeymoon, to¬†Jamaica, I’m pretty sure no other beach will ever compare to that one.

first time with my toes in the sand!

  • I used to be what we called a “Band-Aid” which is an upgrade to a groupie, for 3 local bands in the area that me and all my friends loved, and we each dated a member of the band atleast once lol!
  • I have 6 tattoos. I got my 1st once when I was 15! It is a 3 moon symbol on the back of my neck, and I passed out while getting it. I also have my daughters¬†initials on my left shoulder, and a home done “Hachet man” on my right, which I will not cover up because of the memories attached to it. I also have a “ghost cat” on my left forarm, which I hate, and will get covered up, and I have Alice from American Mcgee’s Alice (evil alice) on my right forarm, which is a cover up for a HORRIBLE skull and¬†crossbones¬†tattoo I had before hand.¬†¬†My latest tattoo is also on my right forarm on the other side of my Alice and it is a quote from Alice and the Madness returns that says “The World is not so either/or Alice” and is from the¬†Carpenter.¬†

It’s no done yet! but I love it already!

  • If you haven’t guessed, we love Alice in Wonderland in this house. It is the theme of my tattoos, my wedding, Jaiden’s 4th birthday, and Jaiden’s Halloween costume.¬†

  • The 3 things I can’t live without, (besides my family or air lol) is my cellphone, eyeliner, and a hair tie! I am constantly on my phone, and never turn in off, my eyes are super small so without eyeliner I look¬†really silly, and my hair is super long, and thick, so I have it up alot.¬†
  • ¬†I love going to concerts, and have been to probably well over 100. My favorite is a tie between seeing my favorite band of all time (Nine Inch Nails) on halloween night, or a festival me and one of my very best friends went to in ATL that had Godsmack, Cowboy mouth, Traped, Evenessense, and more! I’ve also taken my 4 year old to see 3 concerts already too, Yo Gabba Gabba, Barney, and Disney on Ice!

  • I used to be really in the “candy kid” scene, and all the things that went along with it. and I had a blast, and I’m not ashamed of it, I realized it when it became a problem, and I stopped.

  • Jaiden was born 12 days early, and at only 5 lbs, because I had a hole in my¬†umbilical¬†chord, she was small, but she was perfect!

My little miracle baby ‚̧
