I need to find away to stop the emotional eating! Realizing, that when I'm Stressed, upset, disappointed, I'm turning to food . Then I feel bad and upset with myself. I know that I need to exercise, cause it makes me feel better; but lately I don't care and that also, upsets me. Have gone to the doctor, she put me on some meds that is suppose to help, but it just makes me sleepy. Have a follow up with her in May.
So it's time that things have to change. I don't like to be in this depressed state. Going to start making some changes. Will start to do 10 minutes of exercise, a day and work on being consistent. Going to start learning ways to add more fruits and vegetables. This one is going to be tough, as I'm not much on vegetables. I will do this for my health and well being. Also, need to start tracking my food and fitness.
I've got to start taking care of myself, so I can take care of my family. Will start by taking it one day at a time and one step at a time. If I fall, will pick my self up and dust myself off. I have come to far to let myself down and to put the weight back on. Need to find a way to cope with all the STRESS!
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT! IT MEANS ALOT TO ME! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.

This challenge, has been a struggle for me; but I have also been a learning experience, too!
I really ready knew that I needed to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Learned that I need more fiber and less sodium in my diet and that I also need to track. Also, that I feel better when I get enough sleep and drink enough water. When I don't get enough water , I feel and not enough sleep, I am very grouchy, and have a headache.
Since school is out, have not been getting enough sleep, have been staying up after 10; I feel better if I get in bed no later than 10 and get up by 6 a.m..
I also feel better when I drink over 8 of water. It feel that my body functions better.
Lately, I having really been craving sweet; not good, as they are in the house. Have bought some fresh fruit and dried some apple. Just need to eat them, instead of the sweets.
I have been doing fair with exercising. There is still room for a lot of improvement. Have been making myself do 10 minutes a day, usually walking. Need to find something fun to do, so that it doesn't feel like work!
Thank you Leaders for all that you do! This is a great challenge!

This year I have begun to think that I can succeed in reaching my goal. So, I am changing my username from Bestmommy64, to Believing-N-Me.
I have had a fun day. Did my 1st with my Mom. We had fun walking together; we don't get to see each other often. Cali, went to walk with us, but they needed her help as a junior leader. She walked the last mile with us.

I have been doing good with the squat challenge; am now doing it by myself as sister-in-law has lose interest. That's okay, will finish the challenge; it is getting tougher each day for me. Today is a rest day, tomorrow I'll do 150 squats.
Last week I was doing some bicep curls and 3year old nephew wanted to do some with me, he got some weights an wanted to do some. Well that didn't last long, but thought it was cute.
This last 8 weeks has been a challenge in itself. The scale has not been very nice, to me; as I weigh more now than when the challenge started. Just disappointed, on the positive side my clothes are fitting better, so something is happening in the right directions. Well will keep pushing forward and not giving up! No matter how discouraging it gets. Just need to find some exercises that I like to do; wish there was a Zumba class near by. Just need to pull out my Wii and do Zumba on it. It would REALLY help if I had someone to do it with me. I do better when someone else is doing it with me. Just find it Very hard to eat healthy and exercise, when no one else is. Wish that the girls would do it with me.
for all the support and encouragement. I have signed up for the Spring Challenge.
