I wonder why something ALWAYS happens to deter me when I set my mind on goals?

One kid is sick with croup. She got so bad that her airway was closing and had to be given steroids to open her airway. She had absolutely no voice for a few days and even now croaks out only a few words and sounds like a sick cat when she cries. She isn't wheezing anymore though so that's VERY good. She's definitely on the mend.

Another kid is in pain. Not sure, but I'm wondering if it could be appendicitis. I may be leaving for the hospital later if his pain continues. It's been on and off since last night.

Lastly, my oldest is dealing with a boyfriend who's a loser who got himself arrested. She calls about 20 times a day talking about needing bail money. No one will give it to her/him because chances are he'll just end up in jail again. If someone does give it to her it will only be because she is hurting. I feel awful because she is obviously hurting, but I'm not bailing him out. This is what life with him is going to be like and she needs to face facts. He steals all the time, he just got caught this time. Even though she is hurting, he's going to think it's funny and cool when he gets out. He won't care at all how much it hurt her. He won't care at all that she's pregnant and he's supposed to be responsible now. I makes me so angry that he did to her.

So about my goals...I only made them 2 days since I set them. emoticon

    Tina, 2 days is better than 0 days. And tomorrow is a whole new day! I hope both your children are feeling better. It sucks when they are sick and there is not much we can do to make it all better. It must be tough for you with the oldest too. I know it would have to be hard to want to be there but you know the best thing to do is to not help the way they feel you should. Hopefully she sees for herself sooner rather than later that she is better off without him.

Just remember to take one day at a time, one step at a time. Even if you can't hit every goal every day. Just do what you can manage. Don't let all the outside crap crowd you and push you down. You are a strong woman. You are worth changing your life for. You can do this!

I'm going to start counting down the days that I meet all my goals.

I posted my goals yesterday but here they are again:

Log into SP daily emoticon
Log my food daily emoticon
Drink my water daily emoticon
Huddle with my teams daily emoticon
Journal daily emoticon
Stay within my carb limit. emoticon

All these I have been doing for many more days than "One" but I am adding a new goal and I did this last night and am about to do it again. Putting it here will challenge me to keep doing it.

20 minutes on my exercise bike daily. emoticon

One day down for meeting all these goals...here's to many more.

The Spark - Chapter 1

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

So far, I really like the book. I was worried that it would tell me how to eat differently than I do and that's one thing I don't want to change. So far, I don't see that in the book, but I've only read Chapter 1. emoticon

I don't see myself ready to commit to any "streaks" but yet maybe I am.

I already do, right?

I log into SP daily.
I log my food daily.
I drink my water daily.
I huddle with my teams daily.
I journal daily.
I stay within my carb limit daily.
I do not put myself down daily any longer.

I will continue these streaks and I will add more in the upcoming weeks.

One I would like to get back in there is:
30 minutes of riding my bike daily. I did it through most of January, what's the problem? emoticon This is a goal I'm working on.

Marching on!

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

I have decided that March is going to be MY month to shine! When I first started this WOL again, I decided that my first major accomplishment was to get back to my pre-pregnant weight. emoticonIt is also the lowest weight that DH has EVER seen me at and I am VERY excited to get there. I had a date in mind and that date is fast approaching. The date is Easter. emoticon I'm not too far off from that weight and I have just over 5 weeks left. I can totally do this. I just have to work hard and stay motivated!

Woohoo...I'm gonna do it! It's alittle over 10 pounds in just over 5 weeks. Totally doable! emoticon

I WILL do it this time!

Saturday, February 27, 2010

Ok...my weight is seeming to stick right where it is so I'm determined to get it moving again. Mark is going away this week and that means I'm going to be bored. What better way to get rid of boredom than to work out? I am going to get on that darn bike this week! I promise myself. No more sitting around thinking about it. I CAN DO THIS!

    Tina I am right there with you it is time for the scale to go the right direction. First I stayed the same for a long time then I gained 5 pounds now it really wont budge. I cant do this again! I must conquer this. We will overcome!!!!

    Those darn plateaus! I know they happen and that's why I'm not panicking too much, but it's still annoying! Glad your weight is moving for you!

    ...and you will. I was stuck at the same weight (all the while following SP), working out, tracking my food and participating on the site for TWO MONTHS! Sure, I was discouraged some days, but I felt better although the scale didn't show what I wanted to see. I have now been losing steadily, awaiting the next plateau!
