Every time...

Monday, April 15, 2013

I was doing great for being on track for my weight loss. I really was.
Then life decided to get in the way and my weight loss stopped.

I am 6 weeks pregnant. Very unexpected.

My doctor is okay with my eating plan continuing on how I have been, and for now, i'm cleared for continuing to exercise so. I can't do as much as I was, and if I end up having issues again, then everything will change.
For now though, I keep eating in my new way, and keeping up with moderate exercise, and go from there.

    Join the Spark group "Fit and Pregnant," and check out my girl GRACEMCC45 - she just had her baby boy and exercised right on through almost her entire pregnancy! She will definitely be able to help you keep on track. It is possible to be very healthy while carrying a child!

The great walk

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Well, i can say i definitely got my activity in.
couch to 5k day1
Went for an unintended four hour walk
Got home and did 30day shred level 1

Still not sure why I did that last part, but I am glad I did. Now, I am tired and off to bed. Working nights sucks sometimes

    Holy guacamole that's a lot of exercise! Very impressive that you were able to put in a 30 day shred workout after such a long walk. And very inspiring, too! I was tired after a long day yesterday, and ended up skipping my workout because of it. Perhaps you will inspire me to push through next time :-)

NTC and kids

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

I decided to try NTC today. I did the sweat + shape.

Now, having my two boys ( 2 and almost1) try to help mommy by taking off with my iPad was fun, but hey, chasing them around the house can count as extra cardio right? emoticon I have to admit, we looked silly; junior running away with my iPad, me chasing him, and Sprout crawling after us as fast as he could. I think the cats and dog thought we'd gone nuts.

Logistically though, I'm realizing that I don't have a place I can work out wihtout the kids around. going to a gym isn't an option, and they can get everywhere in the house. Bean and Junior at least like to jump around with me when I'm doing 3DS, at least part of it. i guess i just need to work out a way to include the Smalls when working out otherwise they'll find a way to be involved.


well, that was unexpected

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I have to start out with the positive. I did a lot better with the news than I would have even a couple weeks ago. I didn't over react, and I didn't turn to food to smother my worry in chocolate and sugar, or something deep fried. This is a huge improvement.

But it still sucks.

My eyesight has been getting crummier for a while now, and it was finally in the budget to get my eyes checked. I figured it was just that I needed a different prescription for my glasses.
Not exactly. Apparently I have keratocornus in my right eye . How it was explained to me is that I have a progressive degneration of the cornea of the eye which causes the cornea to become misshappen.
Good news is that it can be treated for a while with hard contacts.
Bad news is that my doctor hasn't ever seen an eye as bad as mine and told me i'm pretty well looking at having to have a corneal transplant or go blind in my right eye.
That was Friday.
now I get to go see the specialist and find out what he has to say. Fun times.
At least it explains the crummy vision and the freaky light sensitivity. emoticon

    Wow that really sucks.. sorry to hear, I will be hoping things turn out well, and that you can get a transplant

    First of all, let me just say that I love that you started with the positive. I think people who can focus on the positive (even while acknowledging the negative) end up being happier in life, in general.

Second of all, GREAT JOB on not turning to food for comfort!!!! That's very impressive, and I can't say that I could do the same in the light of such news.

And you know what? At least you weren't told that you'll go blind with no other options. Yeah, you might end up needing a transplant. But at least that means there's HOPE. :-)

I'm Baaaaack. Again.

Life's certainly had a strange sense of humor since i started this spark people journey. I started with my first blog post back in 09. I had 1 lovely little girl who I was determined to change my life for.

and I like to think that I have made some huge changes in life so far.

We certainly eat healthier than we did then. And we're a lot more active. But, I also haven't met the goals, realistic or not, that i set for myself. 2 high risk pregnancies and 4 surgeries resulting in bedrest for more than 2 out of the last 3 years have made it rather difficult to meet my goals.

So where am I now?

Well, i'm still down over 40 pounds. I started at 350, and I'm at 308. considering all that's happened, I'm calling that a success.

I have 3 healthy happy, wonderful children. Seriously, they are amazing little miracles. After being told i would never be able to have them, each one being a surprise has been incredible.

WE eat healthier. Seriously, We've gone from eating out 6 nights a week to not, AND we're actually eating fruits, veggies. Considering how it was before, this is nothing short of a miracle.
So where to now?

Well, that's part of the adventure i guess. I do know that looking back I haven't been the most positive . That's something that i think I really need to change.

    Just read this post after reading your "well, that was unexpected" post. I think your last comment in this one is interesting: that you haven't been the most positive in the past and would like to change that. Well, based on your most recent entry, I would say that you're already making great strides in changing it! Kudos to you for that! :-)
