I went to TOPS on Tuesday and I gained a pound over the holidays, but I know it will come off because I did everything right, plus I weighed myself as of this morning and i'm down 2#. I got back into my exercise class yesterday and it felt so good. I really missed it. I paid for the month of January so I committed to it 3x a week. Monday, Wednesday and Saturday am. She is even having a class on New Years Morn at 11am YEAH, which I am going to. I'm tired of teeter tottering this weight loss journey, I really want to push myself the next few months, and will do it. I have been cutting back my carb intake, and when I do eat carbs, I am chosing multi grained-high fibered items. Salads and me are making good pals, I am just changing it up every couple of days, I have soup with my lunch meals, and eating more fruit each day. I have been doing this on and off the past few weeks trying to get myself back in gear and so far it is working for me, this week I really stepped it up. Yesterday I came in on my low end of my calories and wasn't hungry, although this am, I was alittle more hungry, figured it was the workout.
On the fertility front, yesterday, my doctor prescribed my first rx of my fertility drug clomid-it helps stimiulate my ovaries to produce those golden eggies. So starting with my next cycle in January that is when it will be begin, I feel very blessed, I want to loss 30# before the pregancy begins, he also explained to me that if we succeed, my calories in will stay at 1800 which is where I am at now 1500-2000, he said we can adjust as we go and that I am not to gain more then 15# and should have a healthy baby. So, that is the game plan continue to lose so that I can feel healthier. My blood sugars are more in control now, I attribute that to the change in my choices in food. Becoming the pink team's leader was a great motivator as is my friend Marlee who renewed my spirit!!!
Let the pounds come off!!!! Will be journaling daily now!!!

Made it out to the coast on Friday for our honeyversary. We got to Seaside, OR around 1pm and there was no power and estimated time for power was 2-3 days, so they asked us if we wanted to stay in Astoria, OR at the hotel there we said yes-they had power. We had a great time, those little coast towns are still without power. People were so nice, alot of locals were staying at the hotels because they had no power or heat.
We went to Ft. Clatsop, Ft. Stevens and the Astoria Column. I climbed 164 steps to get to the top of the Astoria Column. I was proud of myself for getting up those steps. My reward was the view of the ocean and Columbia river where they both meet. It was awesome also the views of the towns, took pictures and had a great time, enjoyed our quiet time. On Saturday night we had a nice dinner prime rib. After 164 steps I figured I could have a nice dinner :) We did alot of hiking on the trails at the forts. There are alot Lewis and Clark trails and historical info, loved it. Overall it was nice just having the us time.
My mom did well on Thursday for her blood transfusion. Although I was irritated with my sister because she was to do half of the time with her at the hospital so I could get back to work and she called me at the last minute to tell me she couldn't show up. Oooh was I hot!! I lost a full days paid, but it's mom so I didn't let her get too upset about it. She must have had some guilt because my sister actually showed up on Saturday and took mom out while we were gone. That in itself was a miracle.
Made same great memories with my hubby. All in all it was a great trip!!! Didn't let the storm ruin it.

Reading todays article was enlightening because it made me think could i be my best friend, to i treat myself the way I treat my best friend, no i don't. My best friend is like my sister and I'm really close. I will drop anything for her as she would for me, yet I can't do that for me as easily. In the past few weeks, I have been putting myself first and it showed this past week with my loss, I will continue to have to do this in order to make my goal, it doesn't mean, I won't be there for others, it just means, I will be there for me first to do my exercise and make sure I make healthy eating choices! It is a big deal to me to get back on the losing streak and finally make my mark. I will learn to love myself, my husband treated me this weekend to foofoo myself, he said go make yourself feel pretty. I want you to go get your hair done because you deserve to do something for you and feel pretty because you are. That touched me deep and yes I did go make myself feel pretty got my haircut and hilited.

Well this weekend I realized that I need to make time for myself, not allow others into my space or of sidetracking my goals. Friday, was expected that we were going to my MIL for a visit not a problem but the choices made foodwise were bad, my own fault, I never preplanned the meals around the outing. So this week, I will do better!!!!
