New things...

With so many things going on in our family, sometimes I really have to take a few minutes to update everyone on progress, new things we are doing, etc.

I want to start with my Plexus status:

I began Plexus on March 26, 2013. My beginning weight and measurements, can be found in the below post.

As of today, March 30, I am weighing in at 152.4, with loads of energy!!!!

There was one day I didn't see any progress, and I was dragging a bit, however, it was part if my very small experiment - which was, if I could get away with only taking one accelerator pill. Not because it made me jittery, which it did NOT, at all. Just to stretch out the bottle of 60 it comes in, and because I like to be difficult.

I have not changed my eating habits, but since Evan is at work this week, we are eating at home. While he's off work is when we eat out all the time, and I start to feel more puffy and just flipping tired from all the food I'm consuming.

Eating out is our main problem, he's off for a full week at a time, so we are always on the run, checking out San Antonio and whatnot.

We do eat semi healthy at home. We do not purchase Little Debbie cakes or any kinda of soda.

Evan has started Plexus too, if you are interested in his results- write him on Facebook, and beg for him to let me do a post about it :) I can say, the scale is showing a new, lower, number and the accelerator has helped with the dreaded night shift he's been on!

I plan to take measurements on Monday, I will update then! Hence- something I will do once a week.


In school news-On Thursday, Aaden fell asleep on the way to school, and I passed him to his teacher, still passed out. She loved it, and I don't think he minded either, he stayed asleep for an hour, even through lunch, she said.

Now- the really fun news, my little business, The SunFlowerSeed, is purchasing something new, and very exciting!!! Stay tuned!! We will still be doing the custom signs, but also taking a different lead. Something I have wanted to do for a really long time.

Until next time...

Plexus Slim

Two blog posts, in one day, can you believe that?!

Since I am overly excited about multiple things going on in our lives, I figured they deserved 2 separate blogs.

I have recently joined the Plexus Slim family. I am beyond excited to share my progress in antipation to help other people, men and women, who struggle weight loss.



The hardest part for me when it comes to dieting is, I don't necessarily love veggies and fruit. I could eat a steak everyday, for every meal. Well lets just say, that isn't going to help with my weight loss goal. I also keep up with 2 hyper crazy little boys all day long. You would think that would be enough excerise for me, but it's not. Normaly I am exhausted by the end of the day, and I have no desire to actually go run or even work out at home.



Finally there is an all-natural, healthy solution to help you lose weight. The synergetic effect of Plexus Slim and the Accelerator taken together can help you lose more weight- faster than you ever thought possible. Plexus Slim also helps keep blood sugar, cholesterol and lipids at healthy levels. Plexus Slim helps reduce binge eating and increase your will power over food. Taken once a day, simply pour into a bottle of water, shake, drink and experience the results. The Accelerator was designed as the perfect companion product to Plexus Slim. Accelerator helps accelerate weight loss or overcome weight plateaus. You simply take one capsule with one packet of Plexus Slim- the combination of ingredients in the two products work together to help you lose weight- quickly.

I plan to blog at least every other day with my results.

As of today, March 26, 2013, my measurements are as follows:

Waist: 34 inches
Hips: 43 inches
Thigh: 23.5 inches
Arm (at bicep): 12.5
Belly button: 37

Weight: 157.8

If you are interested in more information or would like to try a 3 day trail pack, please email me at court.ingram@gmail.com or visit my Plexus Slim website http://cingram.myplexusopportunity.com.

Until next time...

Honeymoon period

Honeymoon period, I think we all have an idea of what that means. Although it can be applied to anything; newlyweds, newby college students- speaking of, I was definitely one of those!! Hence, why I still haven't went back to college ;)

In our family's case, right now. It is with Aaden, and him just starting his school. Now don't get me wrong- we are starting his 4th week of school, and we have seen tremendous improvement!!!! Definitely beyond any expectations I ever had. We have seen him transform from a little man to a pre-schooler!! He enjoys going to school everyday, and gets upset on the weekends when he can't go. That right there is huge to me, considering when I worked, he would cry everyday when I dropped him off at daycare.

From day one Aaden ran up to his teacher and gave her the biggest hug, he had never met her before! Which is something major for Aaden to do. We have witnessed him making his own choices, doing a few things more independently. Asking for things without whining, and in full sentences. He has memorized multiple nursery rhymes. He is developing even more of an imagination! Learning to write his name, and to do simple addition. I hear him practicing all the time.

Short story- The other day I was washing my face, and of course, he was right under my feet, I heard him say, evil 6. So what automatically comes to my head... the mark of the beast. Don't ask why. haha I just heard him say evil 6. I asked him who taught him that, and it wasn't a nice thing to say. Well little turd doesn't lie,, he said his teacher taught him that. I asked him to repeat it, he said 1 plus 5 evil 6. I love his little speech impairments. ;) Smart boy.

Overall, he is just a happier version of himself.

We are currently taking half of the medication he was on previously, until we see his new developmental pediatrician in a month. On that note, it took forever to find the right doctor. So many doctors here were not taking new patients, or they wouldn't see Aaden until he was 5 or 6. Well I'm positive Aaden isn't the only almost 4 year old with issues. I'm not sure why it was so difficult to find one to see him, PHEW. Finally we are on the waiting list for an evaluation, and we will go from there.

 
Now, back to the Honeymoon period. This is something Aaden's school psychologist warned me about. Although we are still seeing improvement, they past few days he has been backsliding a little bit with the whining, and we are seeing a little more fluctuation in his mood. If you know Aaden, sometimes he will hang his head down for no apparent reason, as if he's sad- and nothing particular has to happen for him to do that. I have been seeing that a little bit more lately. Compared to the first 2 weeks of school. I am praying this is not what we are experiencing, because he is making improvements by leaps and bounds.

Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers, they are always appreciated.

Until next time...
