Lazy Fitness!

A proper daily workout is going to be my pitfall. I cannot stay consistent with ANYTHING, other than eating every darn day! Fitness has been a daily struggly for me and I can’t wrap my brain around the fact that I NEED TO BE FIT! From the crappy foods I consistently indulge in, to the lazy couch and my favorite reality shows. Sometimes after work all you want to do is rest, not workout.
I am trying to stay consistent with it all, but it is hard work! I will be posting my fitness journey on my blog. Hopefully, this is another thing that helps me stay motivated because my personal to do list journal doesn’t help.
I have 100 pounds to lose, and my goal was to lose a nice chunk of it by Christmas. I am tired of avoiding the holiday group photos because of my weight gain. No one wants to see that LOL! This year, we are once again doing the matching family pajamas. Last year, I split my silk pajama pants while helping the kids unwrap gifts…so embarrassing. I had to change into leggings before the rest of the family got there. *sigh* Those pajamas were really cute too!
I really want to document this journey because I want to be able to visually see the transformation and see how emotional I was during this whole process. Usually when I see peoples fitness journey they tell you how they did it AFTER THE FACT. They tell you how they stay fit NOW, not THEN. I want to document my daily workouts and fitness achievements.
It is a new month and everyone who knows about Blogilates knows that there was a new calendar sent to everyone for the month of October. So after being a few days late, I decided to start on Monday. Whatever her name is tried to literally kick my butt. We did over 100 waist dippers. Has she gone nuts! I am a beginner. My hips and thighs are killing me, yet I am thanking her at the same time. Since I cannot go to the gym because of my kids and small time frame after work, I have been craving for the pain that they gave me when I used to go to LA Fitness. I thought that I would be able to feel that same pain when I was doing Focus T25, but that was a $130 mistake. Oops! I am also doing Couch 2 5k. We will see how that goes, because this is my 3rd time doing it and not being consistent with the workout. Pray for me! I will be posting up pictures soon of my before and my inches. I have to track this somewhere. LOL!


Medical School?

Whew! Haven’t been on here in a while! I had high hopes of being this extreme blogger, but its certainly not working the way I wanted it to. My laptop is broken and my warranty is expired. Womp Womp! My dad warned me years ago that HP laptops will eventually start to over heat if you choose not to use it on a hard surface like a dining table. Well of course, I didn’t listen and now my laptop is in R.I.P status. It still turns on but it doesn’t turn on for long. Time for a new one. I really wanted to invest in an iMAC or a Macbook Pro since I have desperately been wanting to vlog on youtube. But we may have to wait a while.
I’ve finally decided to blog while at work! Since the laptop is out of business, this is a great way to make the work day go by faster even though I should be cherishing my short lunch hour.
I have recently been very interested in “Mommy Medical School Blogs” (what I call it) I have found another mom on the move and it inspires me so much to see that these moms can do it.
Ever since I was a little girl I have always been passionate about becoming an obstetrician. But as I became older and started dressing up my barbie dolls, my doctor dreams shortly turned into fashion designer dreams. Now that I am a college drop out with 3 kids, that dream seems so far fetched.
I even thought that the dream of becoming a doctor would be too far fetched since I wouldn’t be a traditional medical school student. But after much research and the many “mommy medical school blogs” that I have been reading, it looks as if anyone who is determined can do it. I would love to deliver babies for a living. I had such an amazing experience having my own, it seems like an awesome career to have.

In the meantime, lets start at square one with trying to get back in school and convince my boyfriend that I should be a full-time college student. One step at a time…

Medical School??

The hardest part for me when it pertains to going back to school is trying to decide what I want to be for the rest of my life. I am so ambitious, driven, and goal-oriented, but when it deals with my future career I am like a deer in headlights. I don’t understand!

Along with my many other great qualities *SMILES* I am also very indecisive. I change my mind at least 5 times before I actually decide on something, or I at least consult with someone before I make any sudden moves. Major or Minor! This has been a huge issue for me because for the past few years I have been so indecisive about what to major in when I start college again.

Lately, I have been gaining a huge interest in medical school. My handy dandy tool is google whenever I want to research something. I have been reading through alot of blogs about medical school and how different students adjust with the crazy schedule of a medical school student. My favorite blog is MrsMommyMd. Nothing better than seeing the journey of an African American young mother with two children and a husband on their road to becoming a doctor.

I have also been reading another blog, A Doctor In The House. *Say What?* I don’t know why I always say that when I talk about this blog. She isn’t married, nor does she have any children. But she goes into depth on how she copes with the hectic crazy life. It’s just great to be able to take a peak in someone elses life for a change. Which is why I love blogs. The amazing photos, the amazing food *yum*, the loving family. Everything just seems so nice when its posted online. Of course, we never see the bad. But she does talk about the times where moments are challenging for her.

When I was younger I did have dreams on becoming an Obstetrician when I grow up. But now that I am “grown” I have no absolute clue what I want to do. Back then I also wanted to become a fashion designer. I have an amazing eye, and amazing ideas for clothing. But I can’t draw, or have the funds to launch that kind of business. Nor can I sew! WOMP! I wouldn’t even want to waste my time trying to learn at an Arts Institute either. Yes, it interests me, but the closest art institute is over 100 miles away. I know the story, that we can do whatever we want if we put our mind to it. But lately my mind has been elsewhere. Fashion is more like a pinterest pinning hobby for me right now 🙂 .
Between becoming a teacher with the various snow days, summer, winter, AND spring breaks, and becoming a doctor. And becoming a doctor, whether it is an OB/GYN or a Pediatrician, I guess I will just figure it out as I continue my undergraduate degree.I was listening to a Joyce Meyer sermon about finding your destiny or true calling or something like that (shows how much I pay attention). And she said something along the lines of it takes time to figure out what you want to do for the rest of your life. Some people are your parents age and are still trying to figure it out and are even taking the steps to do it. It takes getting yourself into one thing, then getting yourself into another to see if this is what you really want. If this is something that you could see yourself doing or even enjoy! It seems so complicated in the beginning, but if what you are doing isn’t your passion, then try something else until you get it. Does that make any sense? Let me know in the comments, I am so done babbling! The kids have been asleep for a few hours, I have just had too much time on my hands LOL!

Ahhhhh, the life of a soccer mom *sips lemonade*

I remember when I was a child I would spend the night at my friends house and go to their ballet, soccer, cheerleading, basketball practices and would wish my parents would put me in activities like my friends!

By the time I became a freshman in high school I had no cool talents, or cool accomplishments, other than never failing any of my classes (which is pretty normal). I enjoyed attending all of my friends activities. It felt like taking a walk in someone elses shoes for a day. I must say, you learn alot and it gives you an insight on the type of life you would like to have when you grow older and build a family.

Well, since my family is already built (with room for expanding, of course) I became one of those moms who put their children into things. I enjoy sitting around twice a week and watching my kids work hard to a goal.

I am currently going through recital rehearsals, and no matter how many times I do it, it is a ton of fun every time. Just to see how excited the other girls are, and how stressed out the moms are. Things can become pretty interesting. So interesting that we almost witnessed a show down between a grandmom and a family of 8 fighting over seats. It was absolutely ridiculous. Lets just say the family of 8 won and I was the one who ended up having to sit next to the losers. Womp Womp Wooooomp!

Anyways, I am still trying to get the hang of this WordPress thing. I have been doing a ton of research, and I just wish to do a bit more before I finally choose which website I would like to host my blog. I am pretty sure that most of the bloggers do that. At least I think! I have finally started playing around with themes. Bear with me guys!

But if you have any tips, or websites that you would like to refer me to, leave a comment down below! 🙂

Welcome to Raybunctious!!!

Welcome to my new blog, Raybunctious (get it? like rambunctious)!
I thought that my first blog post would be a great opportunity to introduce myself to the blog world. So here is a little about me!

My name is Ray *hyper wave*. I am a young mother of three rambunctious girls, two out of the three happen to be twins! I wanted to start this blog as a way to help me vent througout my journey to a successful life. Follow me as I discuss lifes natural challenges, financial progress, family life, college life (yes I am a college student), and various things that I am interested in.

Now off to why I even got interested in this blog thing!

I have always been a supporter of other various blogs on the internet. My favorites are Young House Love, Dulce Candy, The Modest Homestead, Sawdust & Embryos (weird name but I am still a fan). After being such a long time supporter of various bloggers, I felt as though I had something to offer as well. So I decided to offer it. I started this blog simply because I wanted to document the little things in my life. I get a ton of compliments on how great of a mother I am, how involved I am with my children, and that I could really teouch alot of other mothers around the world. Especially young mothers. So follow me as I live my life and share it with you guys. I really hope to gain some new friends along this journey.

Talk to you soon 😀
