Now I understand how difficult it is without the right food products

Thursday, August 30, 2012

Going through this time in my life is hard. I miss the things I could afford at the time I was married, I dont understand how any single mother can survive on child support and I see how the bad choices are so cheap its a vicious cycle. In my area the obesity rate is sky high and the income levels are at the lowest. Of course once I go back into divorce trial I will bring that up but it has been so challenging to buy produce and things that are actually healthy,, instead of overprcocessed cheaper foods, but I can live on protein powder and make sure my daughter gets feed the things she needs. I see how its easier and how difficult it is for the lower incomes,, sad but true. I think once I get done with my personal life I can than make it my mission to help women get healthy food for their families and help raise awareness that the family court systems only benenfits lawyers and judges and not families.

    Never forget this experience. It's so easy for those who are not struggling financially to belittle overweight people, especially at the lowest income levels, but you see how difficult is it to get really meaningful nutrition on an extremely low budget. It breaks my heart when politicians threaten programs like WIC, Headstart, and free/reduced breakfast and lunch programs - these are vital lifelines for those most at risk.

Love can add pounds,, stop routines and you have to find that time for you

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I am so greatful for the incredible love I have, but with that I stopped my gym routine and I quit eating as healthy as I should, my boyfriend owns a resturant so needless to say oops its so tempting when were there everyday. I learned to bring protein powder there and munch on salad versus the fried stuff although occasionally I love a sweet pototoe fry and I drink a gallon of water. I have a home gym so I use that but lately I have been running with friends and finally got back into the gym but I must admit I would rather stay cuddled, so I pick my down time while my daughter is in school for me. The routine is coming back and I have to stress the importance of my regimine and my diet to him. I have that tendency to stop for me and help others. I know though like tonight it was baked chicken and veggies,, and on the elipitical after I tucked in my daughter I have to stay healthy for me and work hard but now I am back on track so here we go again but the love part,, I finally found a great love.,, its been a great year for the new me

What a year it has been,

Monday, August 06, 2012

Well lets see two years trying to get a divorce but soon soon, when you leave a domestic abuser they never make things easy, the good thing though is that I have my self of worth yes I found love, with myself and my new beau. There are good men out there ladies, . Its been really hard being alone in the country no resources, waiting to get my business back during the divorce and getting so much legal work together that is a full time job right there. but this year it ought to end. My stress level is through the roof and I do get to the gym and excersize although I have gained a few lbs, and have to get back on track but I will do that. Each day I realize how terriblly victimized I was in my marriage and I have learned how the effects you in a lot of ways. Enough negative stuff the postive side is that I am strong mentally and physcially and I can restart each day right here, so as I am sitting drinking my coffee and finding motivation right here I also tell myself that today is a new day and I have choices. I choose health and I choose love. Okay clean slate here we go,,, again,,

Dont quit on yourself

Monday, July 25, 2011

You know the divorce trial is ugly, things were ugly and I had my come apart moments with it all, but its almost the beggining to the end here. I met some new friends at the gym, out of the gym and now I have to focus on me which I never do. This is my journey. I learned who I can count on and whom I cant. I can count on myself though. I have to give myself credit about being strong and alone. I learned to fix things alone. I guess that is the hard part. Each day is a new challenge but you go foward and do things with it, and you go forward and try and think about what you really want, and for me its not materialism its happiness and love, and I think one day I will have that when I quit looking for it. Meanwhile its time to redirect focus on myself and be a little selfish. I have learned that just because your suffering inside doesnt mean you cant help others.

    Its a horrible but great opportunity for growth and to get to know yourself better. You are stronger than you ever thought you were. There is life after marriage. I've been there.
