Such a long, exhausting week

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Been going going going as always. Not much fitness or eating well though. Too busy and honestly I was such in a whirlwind I have no idea what I did this past week :/

Kids sick, snow days, my classes...I feel like a crazy person! I feel so lost here because I haven't had the time to be sitting on the computer as much.

Venuses...I am sorry I have no idea what has been going on on the team. I haven't had a chance to read the posts. I am not sure that I will have time to do it now either. So I hope I didn't miss to much. Only 435/1000 for the weekend challenge. Got to get my LCW in today. Not sure what it is yet :/

I think I saw some happy bday's so to those with bday's I missed emoticon

So I am cheating today. I feel since I am Polish I have no choice but to have me a nice Paczki today seeing that today is Fat Tuesday! emoticon

Tomorrow is WI but I am sure I will be up with all the horrible things I ate this weekend...pizza, wings, burger king italian chicken sandwich...oh well just have to dust myself off on continue on my journey...slow journey lol

Well lots to do so Have an Awesome Day!!!

    We all have days, weeks (for me months) where we are off track. Sometimes life gets in the way. Keep trying...you are amazing and do great with all you have on your plate!

    I can certainly relate - I feel like a crazy person too! Just hang in there, that's all we can. We can try to just make the best choices along the way...grab a healthy snack, drink more water, etc. Hope things settle down for you soon!!

To the point

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Hi Everyone,

Not very happy at the moment so this won't take long. I am up a lb this week. I have been super busy with homework and sick kiddos this week. Kids going back to school today. Hitting Curves to take out this anger. So mad at my husband I could spit fire! Life goes on I guess!

Well Have a great Day!

    Sorry things aren't going well at the moment...that's your key. This "moment" will pass. I know it's hard to handle at the moment but soon it may not even be a memory. Do you still remember your daughter's first skinned knee or your son's first fever? Take a deep breath, tell yourself "this too shall pass" say a prayer for stength and workout like crazy cause the Venuses need you. LOL. besides, it'll make you feel better. emoticon

Last week WAS a fluke...

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I knew my 4lb weight loss last week was just a fluke. This week I am UP 2.2lbs which is EXACTLY what I expected seeing that I was so ill last week. Although it sucks I am not that upset. It didn't help that I ate too much over the weekend and have not done any workouts in the last couple days. Today I don't have time to get to Curves once again, I have a Spanish test and I am not confident on a few topics so I must study more. I have been busy with my other class and my mother in law whos house was almost broken into yet again. This is the 3rd time since July. This time they didn't get in but they did break the window on the garage had it been the house part the alarm would have went off. But my father in law went over and they took out the window, boarded it up then this spring will put up the siding. We are pretty sure its the neighbor but no proof. Can't believe these people...she just got the ADT right after the 2nd breakin. Just been crazy the last couple days...nothing new I guess.

I have been feeling a lil depressed. Not sure if I am just stressed or that I haven't been working out. Friday I am back to Curves so hopefully I can bring myself back soon!

Not much else to report. Take care :)

    Hang in there. BTW, weight fluctuations happen to the best of us. I'm also dealing with that this week. Down 2 lbs and up 0.7! It's frustrating, but it will all balance out in the end if we just keep doing what we know is healthy for our bodies!!

    Might not be today but you will be exercising and losing more weight. You've done this weight loss thing successfully but right now things are busy.we still love ya!

    Can ADT add the garage to the system? Maybe a perimeter alarm or something too for overnight or when she is away. It's even scarier that it's maybe the neighbor than if it were just a random series of bad luck.

Curves is only 30 minutes, but it makes a huge difference doesn't it?

I'm glad you're feeling better, even if it does mean a slight regain.

    The good news is--you are still DOWN!! emoticon
I was thinking of joining Curves--how do you like it? Yikes, that's scary about your MIL's house. Have they considered placing cameras? It stinks to have to go to that length and hopefully the break-ins stop.

You seem to need some of these: emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

    The four pound loss was not a fluke, but probably fluid loss due to being ill. So, of course when you began to eat normal it came back. Still, you did NOT regain the entire 2 pounds and that does count as a loss. When life calms down the weight will drop off again, but not as fluid as fat. I think finding the right balance, especially during winter time is hard. It's hard for me too, but we can both do it!

Jan 27 Updates

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Hello everyone...Been a busy weekend but fun...

I didn't exercise much at all last week but I am back and ready for Curves tomorrow! Evie's 8th bday was Friday so my parents came in to celebrate Friday then Saturday she had a bowling bday party with her friends followed by my in laws coming over for Chinese that evening. Today, must get on the laundry and my MGMT homework. I am so crazy...I decided to re-read the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy, I just loved the books that much. But I promise I will not spend 12 hrs a day readying...just going to aim for about 20 min a day or maybe an hr if no homework ;)

BLC Weekend Challenge:
1)How will my life change one I reach my goal? Well I know I will have so much more confidence and energy. I will be able to do so much more activities with my family. It will def boost my happiness!

2) Forgive myself for one this...I am forgiving myself for just falling completely off track. I am very hard on myself so I will let it go and move on and only look to the future.

Take care and have a great Sunday!!!
