Well progress health wise hasn't happened like I hoped it would, but that is all on me. I was avoiding the gym because I hate the beginning of the year when it so over crowded with the short term resolution people. Yet I didn't do anything to make up the exercise at home. My eating habits haven't got any worse, but they have not improved either. I am still struggling with my water intake, I'm not drinking bad things, I'm just not drinking enough of anything. I get so busy at work I do not even think about it. And before I know it the day is over and you're lucky if I have had 20oz of water.
I feel like I'm ready to get back on track, yet I keep not doing it. It's so easy to come home form a long day at work and be lazy. It doesn't help that my family allows me to either. I really need to work on it. I'm thinking of buying the new 21 day eating/workout program from beach body. I've loved all the other ones I've done from them so far, so I think I want to try this one. It's on sale till the end of the month.
Since last I've blogged, we sold a car and bought a new one. We are considering selling another one as well, having and maintaining 3 cars can be difficult at times. I have a beautiful new niece. She was born January 21st and her name is Emma. She was 6lbs 8oz and is perfect. She is the first for my younger sister and I'm so happy for her.
Well I guess I just wanted to give everyone an update. I will try to blog more and hopefully have some progress news on my getting healthier.

So I am sitting on my living room couch, waiting for my Asprin to ease the small headache I have and I realize it's the perfect morning to go to the gym. My hubby and visiting mum from out of state are both sick, and the kiddo is still asleep. I realize today is as good as any other day to get back on track with my exercise.
I already started eating better the last couple of days, making sure I get some fruits and veggies in my diet, and tracking what I am eating, but the exercise always seems to be a little harder for me. So i am going to get up off my butt, put on my gym clothes, eat a little something and run out the door :)

Well Christmas 2013 has officially passed. It was a blessed holiday, I got to have my mum here and see some of the in-laws as well. My sister could not be here because she is far enough in the pregnancy she cannot travel, but she had a blessed holiday as well. This is a miracle baby for her and her husband, one they were told they would never have, baby Emma will be here in the next few weeks and I could not be more thrilled for her. She is so adorable, from behind you cannot even tell she is pregnant, then she turns around and there is this huge basketball tummy, guess my size 4 sister will finally have some curves (giggle).
My hubby spoiled me this year, I am actually typing this blog from my new macbook pro, that he got me for Christmas. Something that is wonderful, yet did not ask for. He knows I've always liked the one he has for work and he's let me play on it before, so he thought he would surprise me with this. I am blessed for the things I receive, but I'm more blessed for the love and family I still have around me. My mum came down with bronchitis for Christmas and she is not feeling well. We are going to get her to the doctor today, I always worry about her, ever since 2 years ago in March whens he almost died from pneumonia that had gotten in her blood stream. Now any time she gets lung crud I get very nervous. She is my only living parent...and only family we have besides our siblings. She is only 67, I'd like to keep her around long enough to see hopefully a miracle child for me as well, since I'm told I cannot have children either.
Anyways, i don't want this blog to be too long, people are unlikely to read it if it's too long. I do have some goals I am working on to finish out the year and begin 2014. I will post another blog in the next day or two. I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas.

Funny how things can not go the way they should and it can send you into an eating frenzy. Yup, the trial last week did not go how it should have, and a man was let free to hurt a child again. I don't even know how to feel about that. I do know I let my emotions take control and I starting doing what I do best...emotional eating.
It appears I've gained a little over a pound since Wednesday. I blame it on myself, I know I am doing it, but it's so easy to find comfort in food. My goal today is to plan my meals for the week and try to get back on track with the eating. I am also going to hit up the gym on my lunch breaks like I have been, it really helps with the stress and blahs I have been feeling.
Next step is to have the lawyer take another route in the case, there is no way I am letting her in that house every again.

Holidays are fast approaching, and with holidays usually comes a lot of food and a lot of being lazy. I've decided to set some goals for myself to help me get through the holidays and stay on track.
1. Lose 10lbs by January 1st.
2. Hit the gym a minimum of 3 days a week consistently for at least 30 minutes a session.
3. Drink my water and make it a good habit!
I will keep my friends on spark updated periodically with my goals. I need to keep motivated and not let myself slip yet again. I have a doctor appointment this morning to see how I am doing PCOS wise and I'm hoping for some improvement...I believe it will help keep me motivated for the goals above if what I am doing is actually helping me. I will keep everyone updated on that as well.
My starting weight today for my 10lb loss challenge is 223.
