    I was told that I cannot do working out for three weeks as I just started. Day two and doing good. I did walk 1 mile at lunch. I miss my spinning four days a week. Looking forward to getting back with spinning and palates in three weeks.

    I like your cardio goal. I'm going to do that one with you. Cardio 30 mins/day 7 days this week. Protein - I'm doing 2x a day Mon-Fri (breakfast and dinner, although I started off on the wrong foot and had a bagel today -boo. I'm back on track now though - yay!) I did well with the protein goal last week. Goal for me is down 1lb this week. Not much but we both know I've been slacking in a very major way, so even 1lb will be a big achievement! Let's do this!!!

i feel extremely sick/ MOTHERS OUT THERE I NEED YOUR HELP

Monday, November 01, 2010

Its official I hate halloween.. or maybe i hate my inability to say NO
I can't even tell you how many candy bars I had but I feel SICK like beyond words.. I cant even sit up straight as i type this because my stomache hurts..

Soooo Nov1 is tomorrow.. good thing about new months is new beginnnings..
I am going to try and get into the 140's this month - that means NO CHEATING... strict diet and workout..

I order the pilates videos they should be here sometime this week i am soo excited to start leaning and lengthening my body!

i hate whining in my blogs cause really who wants to hear about that but i need to vent!
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Ive taken in my 17 yr old sister.. because she is a drop out and quiet honestly my mother does not have any control over this girl and I thought I could be the answer..
WELL IM NOT!

Quite frankly I am exhausted. Tired.. emotionaly and physically. I am getting beat up by my bf for my parenting and for not making her do this and allowing her to do that.. i am over spending on her trying to make up for the crap life she had growing up and i am getting no appreciation what soo ever and I just want to pull my hair out and SCREAM!

MOTHERS OUT THERE HELP ME!

She is 17 has no education well grade 8 has a job which is fantastic but then when i ask her to be home @ a certain time its a fight.
Now correct me if im wrong but i believe 1030 on a weeknight and midnight on a weekend is a reasonable curfew for a 17 yr old. She has recently found some friends and lst weekend decided not to come home so the crazy sis that i am called around found where she was went to pick her up and found her lying on the bathroom floor puking her guts up @ 1am.

Im sorry i may have wanted to give her a beter life but im her sister not her mother and I am tyring to take on a full time career plus cater to her and take the beating from my bf its all too much

I bought her a 1200 trip to england plus a 300 bed 150 sheet set give her rides everyday to work and she cant even say thankyou...

I told her tonight I think she needed to go back to edmonton...5 hours away to go back and live with my mom.. i dont want to be angry and mean with her but i am... its my personality ... this is why i dont want kids.. because im a control freak... when i say be home at this time and you agree to it then be home dont ask questions dont txt me 30 mins before and say oull be home in a hour.. growing up i lived with my grandparents and my grandpa was rational and very reasonable but strict and i remember him telling me.. when i say be home @ 9 i mean 855... not 9 . I wish i was like my grandma who always had a smile, you always did whatever you needed, who would be there no matter what.. but im not im like my grandpa demanding and controlling and easily angered.. I dont want her to hate me... and i know i will drive her to that..

I guess i just wanted to be the person to make her life better..give her the tools she needed to be a success...but in the end i dont think i can be that...

    I have been there. We took in my 13 yo brother and it was a constant fight. He went back to live with his mother, then we tried again when he was 16. It was awful. He went back to live with his mother again until he was 18.

He also dropped out in 8th grade (his mother is useless and our father died when he was 11) and I tried to support him through school. The rule was - to live in my house, you have to go to school as long as you're a minor. He was fine with that for a couple of weeks (no joke), then was over it. My husband and I also fought over how to parent this kid. For me, it was reinforcement that our decision not to have children is the right one for us.

The good news is, it's been 4 years since we put him on a plane back to his mother's, he lives on his own now (well, with roommates), he's 20 and while he hasn't held a steady job, he does appear to be self sustaining and hasn't been arrested. Oh, and he's not angry with us for sending him home. He understands he was impossible to live with.

All you can do is love your sister and do what you can. Siblings aren't always meant to be parents, especially to each other. And they certainly aren't meant to pick up where parents have slacked off for the previous however many years.

Big kudos to you for taking her in. And hugs to you for keeping your sanity (even if it feels like it's gone). Chin up. You're incredible.

    Your house- your rules-if she wants to continue the privilege of living in your house (and be prepared that she may prefer the 'freedom' of crashing at others' houses or in the streets!) and to be treated like an adult- she needs to follow the rules and act like an adult.
Adults do not end up on the bathroom floor vomiting.
You may be saving her life but you can't do it without her cooperation.
I have direct experience with this in my own family and it is terrible painful to watch a young person you love throw away her life and reject offers of help.
Take care of YOURSELF, my friend.

    Oh girl....from a mother of 4---you ARE what this girl needs. Don't give up on her yet. I'm sure that is what she is betting you will do. She is testing you to see what she can get away with. Are you strict? No, but as compared to what she's used to? Yes. You need to set limits for her and she needs to follow them. Period. She wants a ride to work? Then she is to follow the rules. She wants to go out? Then she follows the rules. In our state, the law is that 17 and under have a 11pm curfew on weekdays and midnight on weekends, however we always make my stepdaughter be home by 11pm on weekends and 10 at the latest on weeknights. If she's out after curfew, let the police pick her up.
Tell that girl she needs to get her high school equivalency. She needs an education.
And self-respect. But you know what? She's not going to get that by you buying her stuff. And she won't say thank you so don't expect it. Buying things for our kids (or in your case your sister) makes US feel better about their situation. It does them no good and rewards them for bad behaviors. Did she earn those $150 sheets or the trip to England? Hell, I have $20 clearance sheets and work my butt off every day lol.
Lastly, your boyfriend. Sit him down and tell him that you are learning. You are trying to mother her the best you can but you aren't her mother. Tell him you need his support, not his putdowns. It sounds to me like your life is beating you up enough as it is and you don't need him adding to it.
I admire you. I really do. You sound very unselfish and giving. Your sister is lucky to have you. emoticon

    simple answer... I had to learn this with my kids..

TOUGH LOVE

Sick by your rules... MAKE rules.. believe it or not it shows love and she will be glad and feel safer within boundaries.

Have consequences you discuss in advance for rule breaking.
Keep her accountable or kick her out. STOP spoiling her. Like the rest of us.. she has to EARN what you give her.
Have her chip in for gas. She has a job, she can pay.

Pray a lot. My prayers are with you., If you are a Christian, get her to church weekly. Make it a mandatory house rule.

    You ask if you were too strict and the answer is no. You can only be strict with someone who is incapable of understanding eg.- a 3yr old and at 17 your sister understands. With that said you have set RULES as you rightfully should, for your piece of mind and she needs to abide by them. Sit her down and explain to her your rules and if she can't respect them send her back to live with your parents. Good Luck. I also have a teenager and she knows if you are old enough not to respect my rules you can leave and live by your own rules. I no longer have a problem. Don't let her cause you undo stress. Again Good Luck but it's only hard when you let someone else control your situation. emoticon emoticon

    You must ask yourself, did your teenage sister want the help? Or was her own mother basically giving up on her and dumping her on you? She already comes with a lot of baggage which just putting a curfew on the girl will not straighten out the damage already there. You must realize that she does not have respect for authority, including you and will do as she pleases. Until she is out on her own and forced to find her own way she is likely to have the same behavior until SHE sees a reason to change. She already thinks that partying is much more fun than getting an education, keeping a clean house and working a long hours to bring home a decent paycheck. Sorry, but none of this is your fault, SHE needs to grow up.

    Why don't you sit down and tell her all these feelings you have? Tell her you thought you were the answer for her, but now realize it is more than you can handle. You are human too- who is there trying to pick you up when you fall down or mess up? That curfew is a great curfew- maybe you bit off more than you can chew with her and she isn't responding to your kindness and love. Tell her in order to love her you feel she needs to be with Mom, otherwise you could grow to hate each other- see how she responds to that. Try and reach her on an adult level if she insists on pushing the limits.

    It sounds like even though she's 17, she's acting like an adult insofar as she's working. Have you created the curfew and the rules WITH her? You really can't treat her like your child, you have to find a middle ground. And honestly, I don't think you should be spending a bunch of money on her. She has a job and she's living with you; let her spend her own money on things she wants. I would sit down and talk with her about how frustrated you are and what you need from her, behaviour-wise, if she wants to stay.

    I can relate a little to this...I have 3 kids on my own and my lil sister and her boyfriend has 2 well they got into a huge fight and she left with no where to go so I wanted to be the one to make her life better and help fix everything I moved her here. Well I did everything for her catered to her on her every needs even watched her kids all the time while she just stayed online or in front of the tv. my husband said she needed to go cuz he hated seeing me do everything for her and basically raise her kids while she did nothing. So as of now shes staying with my mother doing the same thing as she did here. But I have no clue what to do or say to help you out. I'm just hoping this child gets it together cuz nothing I say or do to help her matters...Really its UNGRATEFUL.. Hope it gets better for you...

    Hang on. Don't be so hard on yourself. Teenage girls are crazy! I have two at this moment. I understand your frustration. One of my teen girls is a foster child. We, too are trying to give her the tools to make a better life for herself. As a parent or responsible adult figure, all we can do is set boundaries, provide opportunities for growth, mete out reasonable consequences, listen to their hearts, and try to maintain a positive relationship. The teen themselves has to participate in this mix. Our foster child is just now starting to see the bigger picture of life--and she's been with us for two years. (And just last week, she lied about where she was to sneak out with some loser boy from the hood.) You really are making a difference in your sister's life. Let me know if you need/want any parenting of teen resources.

And--throw out any leftover chocolate (I'm going to have to do this today, too), do something enjoyable and active for yourself today.

40 days FAST FOOD FREE!

Friday, October 29, 2010

Wahooo! I am sooo proud to say I have gone 40 days without fast food and that when i hopped on the scale it read 156.!!! down lbs from where i was last week.. NO wether or not I weigh in @ that weight on Monday is a different story but im going to try my hardest

THe best feeling is NOT GIVING IN ..... and to be honest I dont even crave the fast food anymore.. 40 days ago i was seriously addicted to fast food.. I have to say tho its almost like a crack addiction... alls it takes is just ONE TIME to get back into your old habits... I think this journey is going to be all about NEVER LETTING THAT one time happen..

    Hang in there - smoke enders used to say - you're only a puff away from a pack a day - fast food is a lot similar. It might not sit to well the first time back but the fact that you've given in once makes it twice as easy to do it a second time............................

    It really is funny - when you don't eat fast food for a while, you lose your craving for it. And, should you eat it again, it really isn't that good.

Be strong - be healthy :)
yeah you!
