Christmas Time!

Holy guacamole, Christmas is next week. This year seemed to go by super duper fast (says everyone every year). So much has been accomplished this year, and it kind of blows my mind.

Shortly after I married my bestest friend in May, I started taking classes to prepare for nursing school while working and taking care of my family. That was hard work, but I’m pleased to say that I maintained a 4.0, kept my job, and didn’t kill any of the boys in my house due to lack of nutrition or cleanliness. Whew! I now have a month off (whatamIgonnado?!?!), so I suppose I can actually fold the laundry now. Hooray. Or something.


When PattyCakes asked me to marry him, I knew I wanted to lose weight to look great in my dress, and I was successful, as I’ve posted before. But since then, the journey has become so much more. I’m no longer “dieting,” but have changed my view of food. I eat what I want in moderation, and actually crave healthy things after I “cheat.” I don’t view working out as a chore, but something I absolutely love doing. I lift at 5 AM 4-5 times a week, I don’t weigh myself as obsessively as I used to, but I do know that I’ve lost 3 inches from my waist, 3 inches from my chest (I CAN BUY BRAS FROM TARGET! WOOT!), and 4.5 inches from my hips.Image

I went from a size 13 to a size 6! (Which is smaller than I was in high school)Image

(Don’t mind the bathroom, I’m traveling and messy)

All-in-all, this year has been more than kind to me, and now I have time to write about it. All of this extra time means more recipes and meal prepping, more workouts and logs, and waaayyyy more pictures of my little bug. Speaking of, here’s one of us and my “baby” brother…who just got accepted into grad school and isn’t really a baby anymore. Image

Later, blog readers, I shall return with more of these good reads!

Until next time,

Mrs. P


I am a 20 something focused on being a kickass mommy, fiance, cook, and worker-outer. I love everything about cooking (besides desserts, but I'm working on that), and I always try to make everything healthy. I live in Houston with my fiance PattyCakes, my son, The Bug, and my 2 puppies, Sir Reginald and Beaux. I absolutely love my family and would do anything for them. But I won't do that. I love crappy scary movies, disney movies, indie music, Hank III, classic rock, horribly childish jokes, naughty language, reading, Harry Potter, lifting weights, cooking, football, Nebraska, and being outdoors. I am getting married in May to the absolute love of my life. He is my greatest supporter in everything that I do, and my best friend and joke-provider. I lost a shit ton of weight a few years ago (193 down to 142 in 3 months) by eating healthy and doing P90X. I gained 25 pounds of that back, and am now working to get back down to a healthy weight using Weight Watchers and LiveFit. So far so good! So, read, enjoy, learn something, teach me something, and have fun!
