I just wanted to stop in and say hi. I have taken a break over the last couple of months. We have lots going on and I haven't been spending much time on the computer lately.
So for a quick summary of whats been going on...Florida was the best. We did not want to come home at all! Found out last month Evelyn has begun puberty and boy those hormones have not been fun. I am baffled at this....SHES ONLY 9 1/2!!!!!! Jay turned 6 last week. We took him to see the Tigers on his actual bday and this past sunday had a big party with most of his kindergarten friends. We have been going back and forth about adding an addition to this house but my FIL is confusing so I have no idea what is going on with that. All I know is the kids need separate rooms ASAP! I got kind of a promotion at work. In addition to accounting assistant I am now the HR Coordinator which came with a dollar raise. I have been working more hours to learn that position I went back to my 20 hours per week last week. Over mothers day weekend I got a new 2012 Ford Explorer...I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! But its a hefty car payment.
That's about it. Busy with projects around the house and not really getting on the computer.
I am not planning on coming back to SP well at least the groups any time soon. I did start using the trackers again on my phone. I spend too much time on the computer and I rather use that time to workout or do something that needs to be done.
We ar going to Niagara Falls for our 10 yrs in 45 days so I am working to lose as much as I can in the next 45 days.
Hope all is well and know that I am thinking of all my SparkFriends!
Good Morning everyone! Hope all is well. I am !!! Day 1
Operation #springintoshape was good! I am proud of how I did yesterday. I got a complete ST and cardio workout done, which almost didn't happen, I tried talking myself out of it but finally got up and did it and next thing I knew I was enjoying my workout!!! I ate better than I have lately although I did get a bit of a sweet tooth last night and ended up having a small bowl of cereal and a pc of chocolate. I must get this sweet tooth under control.
I don't think I have mentioned it yet but I began a new journey yesterday! I have to get my weight under control! My girlfriend began Body by Vi a couple months ago and is having awesome results so I am joining her. We have also decided to start walking 2 times a week beginning next week. She is definitely helping me stay motivated! I really need that right now!
Hello all. I am just getting on the computer for the day. Went to work early to get some extra time in since kids school cancelled bc we got another 10 inches of snow again :( Just when we could start seeing grass again :( Really getting tired of this freak weather!
GREAT NEWS...I got my official acceptance letter today to grad school! I AM OFFICIALLY A GRAD STUDENT!
Bad news...I am sick. I got Jay's cold and stomach bug that he has this week :( Evie started complaining of a stomach ache too today :(
oh and the other bad news...I am up 1 lb this week...no surprise considering all the fast food again lately. Oh well just too much going on! Not going to dwell, just got to move on and keep trying!
I also made a big decision today. I have decided to take a break from the next 5% and BLC challenges. I have been just overwhelmed lately and not been able to really participate like I did in the past. I do plan to still participate on SP just not in the challenges. I will continue to weigh in each week and do all my other SP stuff. If any one is interested in keeping in touch with me after the challenges end please feel free to follow my blogs, stop by my page or join my Fitness in Motion team. I will miss everyone when the challenges are over and this was a very hard decision for me to make. But it is for the best for right now!
Good afternoon! Hope all is well with everyone. I have been extremely stressed lately and everything keeps going down hill for a while but we are headed back up :) Yesterday on the way to take the kids to school my car started overheating. I pulled over and immediately had an emotional breakdown. I was totally inconsolable when I got home. Luckily I was just around the corner. I attempted to take the mustang but I just spun down our street with all the left over ice. I have no idea how Jason drives that thing! I just knew too that I was really upset and despite the rest of the roads being ok I was in no shape to drive or work. So the kids and I stayed home. Jason changed the thermostat housing and there is still an issue with a sensor but my car is drivable right now. Heat is working really good now too. I took the evening off school also so I can concentrate on the GMAT. I went to bed at a decent time, got up, weighed in, ate breakfast and looked over a few more things for the GMAT and was out the door by 7am. It was as awful as the first time. That test is just really hard! So after tons of studying, tons of stress and $500 later I FINALLY PASSED THE GMAT!
Such a big weight off my shoulders. So now I just wait until registration starts in a couple weeks and my official acceptance letter for grad school and I AM OFFICIALLY DONE AND A GRAD STUDENT! Oh I am super happy. Now I am still going to be busy but I don't think I will be as stressed out! Tomorrow we go see a house. We drove by it this weekend and the outside is really cute. In a country setting going towards the kids school, on an acre with a fenced in backyard. Corn fields in back and on one side and another house on the other side. THe owners did a job with painting and painted every room dark horrible colors so no issue there, I expected to paint. I am worried about the size of the bathrooms and the kitchen. Hopefully its just the pics online. It is supposed to have a finished basement but no pics online so we can't wait to check it out!
Today I weighed in and I stayed the same. Considering how emotional and stressed I have been I am ecstatic! I was expecting a gain! I will take it! Now maybe I will start losing since I won't be half as upset as I have been.
Well off to get prepared for the house tomorrow with questions and then me and the kids are going to relax and watch a movie. Tomorrow I will resume my homework!
Hello all. Still busy as usual. Still just focusing on eating instead of fitness. I have gotten better. Only had take out a couple times instead of everyday. Which shows in my 2.2lb loss. Technically I only lost .4 lb because of my 1.8 gain over the last 2 weeks but that is better than nothing! With all that is going on in my life I am very surprised its not up.
Short reflection this week as I have tons to do and more just got added :( Have a great night!
