Woot Woot! I am back and ready to roll!

Monday, September 22, 2014

Welp, I took a little break from sparkpeople because I was in a little bit of a dark place. Work got me down and just in to a place that I didn't want to be. I was heartbroken because with my schedule, I could no longer be with my children full time and watch them grow and when I was home, I was so busy cleaning and trying to play catch up that I still didn't have time to spend with them and then I was just plain exhausted! I have NEVER missed a single event at school or during the extra curricular activities and I have missed so much during the past 6 months that it was taking a toll on me.
So last Friday, September the 12th, I quit my job. It took a toll on my depression and I just couldn't handle it mentally anymore. I was constantly being belittled and yelled at by my higher ups.

This past week has been AMAZING! I have gotten to rest, clean my house, take my kids to their activities (which is super busy!), got to see my daughter dance her very first performance with the competition dance team that she on, take them to school, get them off the bus at the end of the day....I love it! I love being a mom to my 5 children!
I now plan to get back in to shape...I keep saying Im going to do it, I keep starting and quitting but now, I can! I can do it!
This week will be equally as busy...Monday night-Chloe dance, Eli soccer practice, Tuesday-Chloe dance, Thursday-Noah and Eli tae kwon do... and starting next week, my Noah will be in Boy Scouts on Tuesday nights.

Oh and my Chloe did win her pageant that I wrote about in the last blog...She is the 2014 Little Miss Greensville-Emporia Peanut Festival queen and 1st runner up in talent!

August is going to be a busy month...

Friday, July 18, 2014

July has been a bust as far as working out...My manager has had me working 7 days straight several times and though I need the hours, I am exhausted! So my new goal is while I am getting the kids ready to go back to school in September, I am going to try to lose 5lbs. Starting it off slow...Slow and steady wins the race!
I have 3 birthdays in the month of August so we are throwing 1 big party on the 23rd for Eli turning 6 on the 1st, Chloe turning 9 on the 24th, and Amery turning 1 on the 26th. Then on the 24th, Chloe will be competing in the Miss Emporia-Greensville Peanut Festival pageant. This will be her 4th time competing and she won it back in 2011 so we are hoping for 1 more win!
My other problem is cutting out soda and fast food...AGAIN! I did it for a while and did great but that problem is back! I have done better with the fast food and drinking vitamin water zero lemonade but its still there. I find myself buying coca colas at work and pepsi's every time I go to a store or on the way home from work. I have a subway right down the strip from my job but I got food poisoning so I won't eat there anymore. I also have a Papa John's and a Chinese place. Not very healthy but I have been taking smart one's to work to eat. I'm trying but I really need to get my soda addiction under control!

    Hi! You have a busy August, the important thing is to implement plans and it looks like you have. Soda was a habit I had to cut cold turkey and it was hard but do able. Trust me when I say, I used to drink 4-5 cans a day! I am happy to say that unless it's a very special occasion or they don't have water, then I will drink one and sometimes I even share that one can. It has lost it's appeal on me, and it will on you too. You have to really want it to do it! I know you can! ALot of people have told me they have gotten sick with subway, I fortunately haven't, I don't know what I would do without them! lol. You can loose those 5lbs you set as goal, let go of fast food, soda and concentrate on nourishing yourself, remember soda is the enemy lol!

Have a great weekend! ANd by the way, thanks so much for reading my long and boring blog. I really appreciate it. :)

Tomorrow is a new day and the beginning to a new week

Saturday, July 05, 2014

I totally slacked the past few horrible. So tomorrow is a new day, the beginning to a new week, so I will start over being refreshed!
I am planning on getting a walk in after church and lunch. I am going to start watching what I eat and I may even start writing it down so I can track a little better. I wouldn't let Shawn buy any more cocacolas tonight.

Let's get'er done!

nothing too hard, pretty simple stuff.
I found 3 more 5k's I really want to do: The Color Run, Color Vibe, and Run or Dye...I think I am addicted to 5k's and color runs!
