I'm Back

I have an update.... 2010 started out rough for my family.. My husband and I separated, The boys and I packed up and moved back to my hometown to my parents home on very short notice. We left with just the clothes on our backs and a few of the kids special things. Everything else was left behind. We started over and am so grateful for the adversity that was presented in my life. I am who I am 1 year later because of what I have gone through. My children remain with me full time and they are thriving in our new life. I AM HAPPY. Here are a few photos to share to show you how much the children have changed and grown, and a few of me as well

Bundel With Love Product Review

The name says it all "Bundle with LOVE"!!! Bundle with Love baby carriers are a Fresh Exciting line of carriers for your loved one. Bundle with Love carriers Asian Style Carriers, Ring Slings, Wraps and Pouches. I loved that the fabric was organic. When you are planning on making a purchase of a baby carrier and you have oh so many options you need to look at all the benefits.. The Bundle with Love Products provided, Comfort (For both Aiden and myself), Style and Affordability!

I fell in love with the Mei Tai Carrier from Bundle with Love. It was one of the first times I had a chance to use a Mei Tai.. I took a step out of my comfort zone. Practiced with the Mei Tai and then took a relaxed Aiden and got down to business practicing the holds, until I felt comfortable with it.. Now I feel like a pro wrapping up babies... This is a must try product.

I mentioned the affordability of the Bundle with Love Baby Carriers. Here are a few specials advertised on the Bundle with Love web site. Seriously at these prices you can pick up a few different styles.

Stop on over to Bundle with Love and see the other specials. You will not be disappointed. The Bundle with Love Carriers are High Quality at an Affordable Price.

The Biggest Loser

My local gym is hosting a "The Biggest Loser Contest" And Guess what I signed up!! and boy am I ever glad I did. This challenge will run 1o weeks . We are broken up into teams of 6. Within the team we try to get together for the work outs.. If we can't all make it at the same time we try to get in and make up the work out. It is great motivation, not only do I want to succeed and lose the weight I am trying to drop.. but I want to keep my team motivated..

We received a handout, with a breakdown of the work out in both a beginner and advanced.. I am beginner. Also in the hand out is goes into detail about how you should eat and gives numerous meal ideas. I feel like this was the push to get my motivation back.

At the end of the meeting we had our Weigh in... and you know what i was not in the least bit mortified to have my weight announced to the group.. I have worked hard to get to where I am..187lbs on my scales 188lbs on the gym scales.. I have a lot further to go and can not wait to hear the number being announced at the end of the 10 week program..

Here I am on the Leg Press.. making sure I have the right form, and my feet are where they should be.. Another Awesome advantage is that our progress will be documented both inside the gym, with our teams, our last chance work outs.. We will be venturing out for Cross Country skiing next week.. As a whole group.. Should be great!!!

I am also planning on picking up a copy of the Jillian Michales 30 minuet Shred DVD... and getting that incorporated into my routine..

Comfy Joey Product Review

I am so excited to share with you guys this review on the Comfy Joey Ring Sling. This sling is not only comfortable for both myself and my son Aiden . It is very stylish with the beautiful colours, fabric and the accent fabric on the tail of the sling. I find myself accessorising not only my hand bags and shoes but as a babywearing mama I now accessorise my baby carriers!!When the Ring sling arrived from Comfy Joey, I was so excited about the beautiful fabric, the blend of linen and cotton is so luxurious, especially after washes, and we have washed this sling many times. The fabric becomes soooo soft.

I find this ring sling is so comfortable not only for Aiden but for myself, This is the sling I use when we are out and about taking Seamus to karate, doing Groceries, taking Jacob for swimming lessons. Aiden and I are both comfortable and he is in the sling for extended periods of time. I like that because of the single layer of fabric there is no bulk. I put the sling on before we leave the house, I hardly notice I am wearing it. Then it is so super easy to cart around three boys.. I can "pop" Aiden into the sling in record time and be around to the other side of the car to let Seamus and Jacob out of their booster seats before they have a chance to squabble..

I 100% stand behind the Comfy Joey Ring Sling. I highly recommend this sling. It would make a great gift to any expectant, or new mom. Stop by the Comfy Joey Website and check out some great buys they have on..
The Hunur Slings are all $60 off now..The Spring collection is $10 off till Feb 5th with code SPRING and has a Buy 2 for $150 deal with code 2FOR150. These are definatley great buys worth checking out!!!

Body after Baby week 5...

Another week... I am in a rut.. Even though I have lost weight this week, I am not feeling as positive and motivated this week.. I need a good kick in the butt!!! to get me out of this rut. I weighed in today at 187lbs.. I am down 2lbs.. and I feel like big whoop!!

I signed myself up for the Biggest Loser Challenge at my local gym and the first meeting is tonight so i am hoping to get my motivation back.. I have been hitting the gym every other day and doing at the very least 30 min of physical activity at home,, Wii Fit, Jumping Walking, work out video .. was the plan of action this week.. But I am not in it.. if feel like I could care less and I don't push myself... SO tonight I am off to get that big kick in the but to get me back on track... I will update tomorrow how the Biggest loser is going!!

New Year, New Rear!!

Move Forward

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place

Momo Design House Ring Sling

We rang in the New Years with Style this year!! My community hosts an annul fireworks and BBQ in the park for the kids. This was Aiden's first year, and he got toted around in style in his Momo Design House Sling. I got many compliments and many wow I wish I had one of those when my kids were babies. I also received a phone call after the event a parent asking me where She could purchase such a carrier. Now mind you Aiden was fully dressed for the weather in a fleece snow suit and yet he was very comfy in the sling. I was able to adjust the sling for his comfort and my own.
What I love the most about Momo Design House Ring Sling is the COMFORT.. Seriously this sling is the Cadillac of designs. The Fabric is beautiful, The embellished material is just enough to add a bit of class to the sling.. Absolutely beautiful..
When asked where to purchase such a sling. I was very obliged to guide the parent to the Momo Design House website. There are many colour options take a stop by and get your own today..
Kim at Momo Design House was kind enough to offer Judson family readers a chance to win one of two organic cotton Monkey Onsies..
