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!
I haven't been sparking much lately. Trying to do my best with my challenges but I just have way too much going on. I made it thru exams this week and I really like our new realtor. We aren't finding much but she is showing us a lot more and answering our questions within just a couple hours. I am getting another cold. Not feeling well at all. My weight is up 1lb this week. Can't say I am too surprised with all the junk and fast food. I have been eating whatever I can get my hands on, sometimes I only get to eat 1 time a day and then its the worst junk fest! One day things will settle down for me. Just wish is was sooner than later. Oh well doing my best. My plan is I want to stop focusing on fitness for a minute. I will still do my daily walk and TNT once a week and any requirements for challenge but I am not going to make it anymore of a goal to do any extra. What I want to attempt to focus on is getting back my healthy eating habits. So slowly that's going to be my focus. Weed out fast food and junk food and bring back in the freggies!
I don't have class tonight so me and the kiddies are about to relax and watch a movie! Have a great night!
Hello Friends. Not much going on, just dealing with the same freezing weather as before. I swear there is no warm up in sight. Been busy as usual with school, home and work. Trying to fit in me time but its not often. Not much with the house search. There is nothing out there! And what we do find ends up being snagged up. Think I may be starting to come down with the cold my boss and my son had this past week. Been feeling even more drained and I can feel the head cold coming. So that's just what I need right now.
I was up 1.2lbs this week. Considering my sweet tooth this past week with TOM I am glad it wasn't worse! But that week is behind me, TOM is gone, time to move on! Keep on Keepin On!
My eating is all over the place. I was bad this week and made some bad choices. I made a lot of good choices but a lot of bad too.
NSV! I ran and played and had an awesome time at laser tag on Saturday. That was some awesome fitness that day! My favorite kind...fun fitness :) But then again all fitness is supposed to be fun But other than that I have just been getting my 30 minutes of walking per day with the exception of yesterday.
Goal for the week...Continue taking it one day at a time...Keep On, Keepin On...my quote of the week
