Rumor has it.... I'm turning 30!

So there is a rumor going around that I thought I'd address before it got out of hand.... lol yes, I am going to be turning 30 (in a lil over a month)!  It always seemed to far away and well now it's almost here.  I told my husband that I want to do something really fun for this special birthday, I'm turning 30 before most of my friends- and honestly my friendships with most of my girl friends has drastically changed since they all recently had children = I'm kinda out of the club now.  I wanted a sit on a beach with the hubs and get a chance to reconnect.  We were thinking Aruba - but we had such a great time is Hawaii that we want to try a different island we are thinking Kauai.

If anyone has been to Kauai - please let me know we are looking into hotels now.

Love this suit from Target! $34.99
So here is the other issue - BATHING SUIT.  I lost 6lbs since on MetforminER/DCI which isn't nearly enough to get into my old clothes.  I'm feeling really awkward at the moment - I feel like I am at the in-between stage of a size 10 and 12 so subsequently - nothing fits well.  Currently at 158.6 I hope that by April I can loose 8 lbs.  I think it's a good goal to shoot for - I am just going to need a lot of encouragement.

I think if I could get down to 150lbs. - the clothes I have may fit better and I may not have to get a new bathing suit.  I like a bathing suit that covers my butt and bikini line - another annoying side effect of my hormonal imbalance is bumps/cysts on my bikini line.  I think look terrible and hurt- does anyone else have this problem?  If so do you have a remedy?

I'm interested in a home work out video I can do in the morning - nothing more then maybe 20 mins - or a good video on youtube.  Please comment with suggestions of videos that you find useful.  I know lots of moms exercise with work out videos when the babes are napping - so I'm really interested to know what ones are helpful.  I think I am also going to start a food journal for the first week - see what I can improve on.


  1. Oooh enjoy your birthday Blythe! Your planned holiday sounds lush! xx

  2. Oh 30 - that was awhile ago for me - you're still a baby!

  3. OMG I LOVE Hawaii, and out of all of the islands Kauai is my favorite. It is so green and lush and laid-back - you are going to have an amazing time. I have been to Kauai only once and it was a long time ago. The hotel I remember staying at, which was great, is the Grand Hyatt. The Princeville Resort is also beautiful - we didn't stay there b/c it was too expensive but it looked beautiful! Otherwise if you want something cheaper vacation condo rentals are always a good option in Hawaii. Best of luck planning your trip - I am jealous! I'm also jealous that you're turning 30 - you are a baby!
