I have two boys one is ADHD and when I can't do it anymore he understands.. beside I too have problems I am hearing impared and blind out of one eye..but do not get me wrong I am not disable I carry an 8 hour job , I drive and do things anybody does but I just take a little longer getting there.. well that is enough about me now what happen was I got scared so I decided to put my foot down.. for the past two weeks we as a family of four after dinner walk around the block or at the park for one hour and my husband is feeling better and me well I have a big smile for making it happen and together....

Well an over view would be that I tracked everything I ate ..and one the hour not sloppy like an hour after lunch or 5 hours later every four hours even getting my 5 or more servings of veggies water intake was good too cuase it has been a while of no soda pops now that was hard to break but did that.. ... On the exercise I did that too and for an hour this whole week...I would take afternoon walks and played on the wii fit or the jogging on the treadmil... with all that work I lost four pounds this week.. with that I decided to take it easy and just tend my garden for my exercise and tomorrow will start the routine all over again... you know it's been a while since I have been proud of myself..and I am ....

Before and now..

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I am amazed at how much I have change since I have been on this journey..first of all I feel much better but still have a long way to go..I am making progress with in myself before I used to be shy away now I am there speaking what is on my mind .. even when the boss at my job is around..I am not afraid for I have learned that she is all skina and bones just like me..before I use to eat anything anytime and a I eat healthy and at a time givenand in home I would before eat fast food anything that is fast and on the weekends I but fresh fruits and veggies and cook up a marathon to make my week smoother and NO fast food another words I plan ahead.. Before I hated exercising the sweating the soreness was not my thing..Now I look forward to it cause I feel better...before I would dream if only I could play with my boys soccer or tennis ..I would simply sit on the side line and watch them play I play and have fun with them kinda like building memories for them...Memories that before seemed like wishing now I make them and loving every minute of it.... being the new healthy me....

    I feel really good myself. I have a long way to go but just the sense of relaxation with the choices I have been making is very good. I even surprise myself sometimes. My self control is getting better and better.

Busy day today...

Sunday, April 18, 2010

Although it was raining outside I decided that that was not gonna stop me from doing what I had planned.. I started by making a healthy breakfast for me and my family I searched and used everything that was low fat or fat free..made some scrambled eggs with cheese had turkey bacon and fresh fruit which I brought yesterday at the farmer's market.. then I started to organize declutter in my kitchen again .. then I got some recipes on this wonderful site and prepared tuna and potato sald the healthy way..clean some veggie and prepared them in container ready to use for the week to come..I even got my son to help me out.. I even got to bake a healthy cake (chocolate) for my son.. on a small break that it stopped raining my son and I went for a walk a route that I created on the site too...I am loving it ... this new me learning and changing for the good...and you know my family does not even know it that they are doing it too... Now I going to wash clothes something I never do because my husband does that but he sprang his back and do not want him doing anything to get worst... well it is a busy day even though it was a lousy day...
