Last night was another baseball game for my son. He chose not to go to track practice before the game because it was just to much and I completely understood. As usual, he was awesome with a couple of hits and one was infield which he beat out with speed I had never seen before. Wow, this track work is really helping him.
About 1/2 way through the game a man approached me asking if I was Josh's mom. I knew him as the dad of one of the kids on his team so I thought maybe there was an altercation in the dugout (I had seen him in there with the kids.) I braced myself.
Nope, it turns out he is a scout for the county team. No, not local but the entire COUNTY! He asked if we would be interested in having Josh on the summer travel team because he has the makings of an all star. WOW!!!! (I casually asked if his son was on this team and he laughed and said no, he wasn't good enough)
Again WOW! What an honor. We are thrilled, Josh is trilled and now I don't have to worry about what I'm going to do with him over the summer!!
They won their game 10 - 7. The boys were pumped. I'm so happy for my son. As soon as he come back from wrestling camp he starts baseball and as this coach told us, he is going to take Josh to a whole new level.
Ok, off the soap/bragging box now and back to your regularly scheduled program.

Being back here after falling off the wagon, has been a real eye opener. I feel that I am finally back in the "groove" and starting to do what I have to do.
One of the things I have realized that is a MUST is the tracking of food. I know now, that once I stopped tracking, the pounds came back. At the end of the day, I am always astonished at how quickly those calories add up. The fact that I am a petite person makes it even harder because I need less than those that are taller and bigger.
I am just starting....really, just starting to feel a little better. I haven't lost much weight yet but with doing more walking, a little weight work, I am feeling better. More importantly, I am sleeping better, which is huge for me.
Well, I'm off to my son's baseball game. It's freezing outside but I try to never miss one. If you go outside you just might be able to hear me screaming for his team!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm really trying to turn this corner. I know what I need to do and I have to get past the anger that I have to do this all over again.
Today, instead of coming straight home from work I stopped at the lake. I walked around it (3 miles), got in the car and came home. I have to say that it was the most difficult time I've ever had walking the lake. I couldn't believe how hard it was! I almost stopped but refused to allow myself that and pushed through.
I'm glad I did this. Even though it was hard, it wasn't impossible. I also know that the more I do this, the easier it will become. I know, I know....it all starts with the first step.
I'm off to have lunch now. I really nice big salad with some chicken breast in it.
I am hoping this is a new beginning for me. Thank you all for all your great support. It really does help.

I am trying, really I am. I am back here because I gained so much of the weight I lost back. I hate it but am really struggling.
It seems last time the weight just came off. Yes, I was eating right and exercising and I really looked great just one short year ago. Now , I have to admit, I really hate myself. I'm so angry that I slipped up so badly I can't seem to get on track. Every day I get up and say to myself I'm going to win today but by evening, I'm a loser (and not in the good way).
Ok, I'm venting, I know but I am having a much harder time. I'm hanging on my my fingernails!!
