It's a new year, a new beginning 2013

Saturday, January 05, 2013

It's a new year and I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired, I've have had enough! I know that working out and eating right will help me to feel better during the week and therefore make me a more effective wife/mother/student. It will also help with my fluctuating moods so I don't know why it's so damn hard to do it! Winter term at my college is starting and I usually get into some pretty bad habits that are really hard to shake during the weeks of class. This time I've built in gym time into my school schedule and planned my day around my workout. I've started doing my Herbalife shakes again and I know that even if those two things were the only things I did that I would feel better so here I am! I'm using Spark to keep me honest and know that it won't be easy but nothing worth having is ever easy, right?! Here's to 2013!

    You can do it. I know it's so hard in the wintertime. I'm the same way. I pulled up a favorite SP person I'd love to emulate and got re-inspired. Here she is:

I think, if she can do it, I CAN DO IT too. so there. heehehe

Believe in yourself and each day is a new start. Good luck!!

Stable Moods, Healthy Erica?

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

So my mood appears to be stable for the time being! I have been taking my Lamictal for 3 weeks now and feel better just for getting back into the routine. I have been doing really well, eating and exercising during the week (could be better though) but the weekends are BAD! I drink alot, and mix my alcohol with sugary juices and sodas :( plus then I eat like crap - going to Taco Bell! Urg, no wonder the scale won't budge! I need to commit to myself that I will not drink like that on the weekend! I am just frustrated! emoticon

    Erica, I was diagnosed with exhaustion by my doctor just this morning and put on leave. My doctor said my goals are to focus on exercising, eating right, journaling and prayer/meditation. Mood stability is a big step.

I would set a goal or two per week and over time you will make the choices you want to make.

One of the things I stopped doing was setting myself up for success. Keeping healthy foods around, drinking my water, eating my vegetables, exercising. I am back here to re-prioritize.

Crazy Person!

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

Well my moods have been a rollercoaster today! I started out my day in a panic, my 8 year old starts school tomorrow and I was thinking how sad I was that Kyron Horman won't be. He, and my son are the same age and I can't even imagine what that family has been through. Terrible thoughts about my own son being kidnapped run through my mind until I am paralyzed with fear for my child's safety. I feel sick to my stomach about the scenarios I play out in my head and do not know why I cannot shut my brain off! Ugh! Well after a nice crying fit at my desk I finally was able to quit thinking like that and feel better knowing how irrational I was being. I'm just so terrified of protecting him. What a day!


Falling Off

Monday, September 08, 2008

So since becoming a vegetarian I have been eating so unhealthy! It's not that vegetarianism is a bad choice, it's just that I justify bad decisions with "but it's vegetarian!". So I'm back to counting calories on here so that I can see where my faults lie. Also, I need to stop drinking so much beer! I just love it so much!
We have been absolutely terrible with our money lately and so stressed with a million things going on that I just feel like I'm falling apart! I stopped taking my medication for a bit and it has really messed with my mood! I just need a full body/mind makeover and I think today is a good day to start! Wish me luck!
