Day 8 - Carefree Saturday

Saturday, July 17, 2010

So today is Saturday and I have no plans for today! the hubby slept in so he stayed home from work. Makes for a better day for me so I wont be lonely til he gets home. My mom works a double shift at work so it's him, the kids (mine and my siblings), and me.

I'm sticking to healthier choices and looking forward to exercising in the pool today! Hopefully the nice weather holds out and there arent any sporadic thunderstorms that spring up.

A moment of weakness

Friday, July 16, 2010

So I had a lil bout of stress. Ive been tryin to find a pt job to help out my hubby financially so money wont be so tight. My availability is so limited due to having the little ones and having to work around mom and cliff's work schedules. I thought I found a great opportunity but it wasnt the right hours. I got upset and a bit down and in that moment of weakness I grabbed chocolate. Not just a piece of chocolate but a mini dessert bowl. I put peanut butter chips on top with a lil bit of ice cream. It tasted great but was a costly mistake. Now I am DEFINITELY goin to the gym tonight!

    Those things happen - we're all just learning how to live this new and healthier lifestyle. My meltdown over an encounter in a store yesterday was a bag of Reese's Miniature Peanut Butter Cups!
Just take each day as it comes and deal with the challenges you face one day at a time. Don't feel any guilt about what's happened - it's over and can't be changed, so just move on.
Don't worry about tomorrow - it's going to come and bring new challenges whether you worry in advance or not!
Just take this journey day by day and do the best you can each day.
Stay positive,
Sheila

    It Happens. It's called life. Just dust yourself off and keep on doing what you have all along.

    Hang in there. Every day you get a little stronger or more understanding of how to handle the stress.

Day 7 - Weigh-In day!!!

Friday, July 16, 2010

So right off the bat . . . I've lost 3 lbs emoticon and 2 inches this week!!! emoticon

Yesterday was an off day. emoticon It didnt start off that way but later in the day I decided a few indulgences would be ok. I didn't go to the gym like I wanted. We were out half the day runnin errands and when I got home I was still sore from the strength training and just pooped. We ate dinner and relaxed a bit and next thing we knew, it was 9pm and I wasnt about to hit the gym that late. There was also brownies in the house and I had a couple pieces of them. This time I didn't eat them because I 'deserved them' for how well I did this week - I ate em because I simply wanted to. This is a big step for me. emoticon I cant tell u how long I have treated food as a reward. "If u work out today u deserve a frappacino from Starbux" "U can eat that cookie - u ate healthy all day" That thinking is starting to dwindle, with lots of self-control and self-awareness on my part. I cant wait til it's second nature!

So today - I have no clue what's goin on. Mom and hubby are both working so I'm home with the 4 kids and no car. I'm thinkin I may try to hit the gym tonight once they get home. Whether my hubby wants to go or not is up to him. I truly love the gym, tho. Just walking in de-stresses me!

Well I'm off to make a healthy breakfast and work on those few pounds I'm shedding this upcoming week! Good luck to everyone on their journeys!

    Now you sound like the woman who was Sparking a few months ago! Congratulations on the progress!
I too have "treats" once in a while because I want them, not as a reward for anything special. It helps me keep things under control!

Thursday, July 15, 2010

So here's my morning blog for day 6 and I cant believe its almost been a whole week! I'm thrilled I have been able to keep my head in the game this long. emoticon Big accomplisments have been made all in the effort to create a new, healthier me!

Today I have more running around to do for paperwork for entrance into the University. I also have an apt for the DMV . . . the name changing is 90% complete! emoticon After that the hubby and I MAY be going down to the dealership to look at what kinda car we can purchase. After that, the day is MINE! I'm def getting in another gym session tonight! emoticon My mom and hubby works the weekend so it's difficult to get it in then, so 4 straight gym sessions this week is FREAKIN emoticon for me! I can tell my mood and health is feelin a 100% turn around. Not to mention the added benefit from time spent with the hubby . . . it ROCKS!

Well gotta go gte my morning coffee with breakfast . . . here's to a new day!! emoticon
