Monday already

Monday, January 27, 2014

Is it really Monday already? I feel like my weekends are just a blur. I didn't really get anything I wanted to done. I guess there is always some kind of time during the week. I had some lunch yesterday with my best friend and her husband. It was fun and always a laugh. I think I would not be sane if it weren't for them.
This week I am hoping to get to the gym a lot more and work on getting this weight off. I have been doing very well with eating within my calorie, getting enough water in and doing little activity at home. So far I think I have lost another 8 pounds but won't know until Wednesday for my official weigh in day.

I had another great day today. I was able to go see my best friend today for a little while before I had to go to work. I must say that I love going to visit her, she always makes me feel great and solves my problems. It feels like I haven't seen her in so long but in reality it has only been about 2 weeks. I normally see her a few times a week plus spend all weekend there except for going home to sleep. The kids have a great time at her house too since her daughter likes to play with them still.
So far I am in my calorie range for today, got my 10 minutes in plus on track for my goal on water. I have about 2 cups left until I reach that goal! Overall I am happy today!

Good day!

We had a great day today. It was a snow day for the kids so we just lounged around the house most of the day. I was already off work today because of a test that my son had to have at the hospital.
I stayed in my calorie range today, got my 8 cups of water in, all my fruits and veggies plus a small 10 minute exercise. I feel like I am doing great and cannot wait for another day. emoticon

What did I do?

Monday, January 20, 2014

I have come back to SparkPeople because once again I gave up on myself. I gained almost all the weight back that I had lost. I can feel it this time is going to be different because I HAVE to do this for myself! I always say that I want to be healthy for my kids but I want to be healthy for myself. I want to be able to do things and feel great for ME. I have had so much stress in my life that I actually ended up in the hospital (thinking it was a heart attack) lucky for me this time but I am fine but I was told I need to get rid of as much stress as possible. I had 2 great people with me that night and day while I was there, they did not leave my side even for a minute, but when the doctor said how much I weighed I was horrified! I know these people are not my friends because of how much I weigh or don't weigh but it still was very embarrassing. I think this is the first time I have ever felt like that. I have been having many family issues that I want to be able to solve on my own but I feel that some of this does have to do with my weight. I just want to be ME.

My goals for 2014 are much of the same as before but they are doable:
1. Eat within my calorie range each day
2. Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day
3. Exercise at least 10 minutes everyday (plan to do more but at least 10)
4. I want to lose 80 pounds by the end of the year
5. Run a 5K
6. Love myself

I am also making small goals for myself with every 10 pounds that I lose so that I can stay on track. I hardly ever do anything for myself or buy anything for myself so that is all going to change!

2014 is my year!!! emoticon

I'm back!!

Monday, July 15, 2013

I just got home last night from a 2 week vacation. We visited Florida to see my family there and also went on a cruise. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to do it again. The kids had a great time spending time with Grandma and swimming in the pool daily. They got to see their cousins again after 2 long years of waiting. We remembered just how much we missed them all. They also got to see Great Grandma and Great Grandpa a couple of times. They played together, talked and went out to dinner with them a lot. My husband and I had a great time on our cruise alone for the first time ever! We went to Cozumel, Belize, Isla Routan and Costa Maya. We missed the kids like crazy and even called a few times but they were having so much fun at Grandmas that they didn't even want to talk to us. emoticon
I did gain almost 9 pounds but I am fine with that because now I know that I need to work harder to get it off plus more. I am already back on track with my healthy eating and exercise to make this goal happen.
