Before I was a Mom, I was really together. By that I mean I dressed pretty nice, wore make-up most of the time and my memory was pretty good. I became a Mom for the first time in December 2002 and now I barely recognize myself . I need to work on my self-image, as well as trying to regain some memory power!
1:30pm and I realize that I'm not wearing my pedometer! Uggghhh!!!! I know I've at least walked 3,000 ( maybe 5,000) steps by now, since I was outside playing with the kids. I wanted to continue on a streak for today for tracking my steps. I need to put the pedometer somewhere so I put it on right after I get dressed.
Yesterday my blog title was stressed and today I found an article entitled: "Why You Get Forgetful When Stressed". So, it all ties together, huh?
Here's the link to the article: dearsugar.com/170705
Right now I gotta work on getting more steps in for the day!

Today I am thinking. A Lot. Thinking about what I pick up to eat and why. Today I have stopped myself from eating a few things and when I do that, it makes me feel good, because I feel I have control. Other days, I'm not as lucky. Most of those times are because I'm stressed out about something one of my kids did or because I'm way behind on housework, etc. I need to figure out what to do during those times so I can Stop those extra, junk food calories from entering my body!
I want to stay in control. I want that control to lead me to eating the right foods, making the time to exercise, and to take some time for myself. It is so challenging though with 2 young children. I have to do it though and I have to figure this out.....and soon!
So, for today, think a little. Stop yourself before you take a bite of something you really don't need. The mind really is a powerful thing!

Well, I lost 2 lbs within the past week!
I almost didn't believe it a few days ago when I stepped on the scale, but the number came up on the scale a few days in a row, so it must be true! I feel like I need to keep pinching myself, know what I mean? It makes me feel like maybe I really can do this if I stay focused and just do what I need to do!
Spring always gives me a boost. So much so, that I think I may have S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
That's when you need sunlight to boost your mood and Dr's recommend a sunlamp for so many minutes a day. I honestly think that may contribute to my Fall/Winter blahs!
So, what have I been doing differently you're wondering?
Last week was full of activity because of the nice weather. The walk to the park, playing outside in our backyard, and the drive to start spring cleaning around my house. I've been better about wearing my pedometer and recording my steps. I've also been better about drinking water. I've started adding about an inch of juice to the water to give it flavor, and that really helps. And lastly, and probably very important, I haven't been snacking at night; I'm sure I will slip up with this sooner or later, but this has made a big difference I think.
And just so you know, I've been sneaking M & M's here & there the past few days, so I haven't been a total angel! If the junk food is in the house, I tend to gravitate towards it!
