Well yesterday I spent the wole day with my boys and hubby..we decided not to go out..we spent the entire day at the patio..I did the cooking barbeque..did some healthy burgers, shrimps and scallops..I looked the recipes on the spraks ..they enjoyed it we had music and started on a project which putting tile on a wooded table the boys and my hubby did two years ago..then we went in the pool..I did not do the exercise I normally do but i relaxed and fun ...on the eating behaved good all day then they suprise me with cheesecake.. I had a small slice.. normally I would eat one forth of the cake so I think I did good...It has been a while since I have fun with the family and doing something fun without food...you know I love it....

I reached a mini goal...

Friday, May 07, 2010

Today was my youngest son's graduation.. he going to kinder..well I got everything ready for him his cap and gown.. my older son's clothes and shoes..my husband's clothes all ready and ironed..then when it came to me I forgot that in my closet nothing fits ..everything been tight..I even had a dress that I brought years ago and liked it so much I did not throw it away because I keep saying someday..have a closet full of shoes too.. high heals but its been a while since I put one on always felt out of balance ..well I opened the door and started to look around..I took out that dress ... and continue to look at some pants black..but looked back at the dress it was summery looking great for the occasion colorful...I said to myself well I will try it if it does not fit I will wear the black pants...I slipped it on and it did not feel tight not even at the boobs..I was amazed.. I put on my heels and did not feel out of balance I felt like a million bucks..I put on some make up and the youngest said Mom is that you because I have never seen you so beautiful ..that got to my heart...then at the graduation he held my hand and introduced me to all his friend so proud and witha big smile... so with that being said I have reached two mini goals one to fit into my favorite dress and the other making my son proud of me...
This has given me great motivation and determination to continue in the path that I am going.. I feel proud of myself and you know pretty too!!

This week I I walked so far 16 miles out of the 20 miles. I have signed up for a challenge that for the month of May I would weekly walk 20 miles..so I am getting there..I have never in my life for filled a challenge ..I always start that drop it but not this time I am not bored...I am making it a top of the llist no buts about it thing.. I walk at different places so that I will not get bored.. I walk the treadmil in front of the tv..I walk the neighborhood with my son..I go to the park and play either soccer or tennis with my son.. I do 100 sit ups daily as well as strength..then my last resort is the wii play a couple of games with the family on the weekend making it competition night... I do that so they won't watch so much tv..so what I am saying is that my life has changed for the better..I now am always looking for some exercise to slip in for me and my family..looking into hiking.. we will see... before I did not care except to take a bath and put my pj and in front of the tv at 4 in the afternoon..

For the month of May...

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Okay Hi everybody.. I am doing great !!! lLookin into the past i April making an inventory of what I did right and what needs a little more attention...
for starters I did very well in April on login in everyday tracking my food as well as my fitness..so I tend to keep it up and do better in the evenings still get the craviongs.. I am cooking more and the healthy way.. been looking here for recipes and done some...most of all my family does not even know they are eating healthy...on my exercise I tend to do the same and a little better ..I have been walking around the neighborhood and the park.. been playing with my son too.. I beat him in a game of tennis...now my family joins me for a walk or play a game..before I used to sit in watch now I join in and they look for me to join in... now I am decluttering everythin in site look for things i do not need nor use why sit there for me to clean...This month May I want to start running or jogging.. on the emotional side I am doing better I am not shy I am participating more..I am learning that speaking your mind is not a sin... I found out just yesterday that I have friends that care..I was feeling down and they pick me up...for that I am eternally grateful...I am learning to be more closer to God which I have not been for a couple of years..since my dad died was mad for taking him away..but now I understand...I have a family who I adore must live and make memoreis for them as my dad did for me...
I will keep login in
I will keep participating
I will keep my food track
I will keep my fittness
I will keep smiling for life is good to me
I will say a prayer for me and my family
I will never doubt my ability to make friends and keeping them..
This I promise to continue for the Month of May..

    So, if I am understanding this correctly, you are making changes that include your lifestyle and others, right? Hooray!

How about interacting with your teams in May. We'd love to hear from you.
