Where's the support??

Thursday, August 20, 2009

I honostly feel like I've been on my own here at home!! My husband and I are really on the fritz and it's driving me crazy!! I've been doing pretty good with my workouts this week, but I've been sleeping really late since my mom has the boys! Today I didn't even get up till 9:30 and then I had to go grocery shopping and get the house picked up. So needless to say I haven't had a chance yet to get my workout in, but isn't running around wal mart for hours enough cardio?? Plus lifting all those bags and putting groceries away a good strength training session?? (I know I'm kidding!!)
I just don't feel motivated. I'm eating great and still trying out new healthy recipes. That's not the problem! It's just I feel that I need more support and understanding from him!! I'm having a hard time as it is trying to find a medicine that will work for me and keep me happy. Isn't that what a spouse is for?? To be there for you no matter what? To support you even if they think what you're doing isn't right? To be on your side and pick you up when you find out that you're wrong?? But I must admit that I'm pretty proud of myself because I haven't resorted to eating that cookie dough icecream in my fridge because I'm upset! Before I would have eaten all of that and then some!!!

    I went though this with my husband after my 2nd daughter. It was hard for him to realize the hormone issues and my imbalances after having kids. I felt like he didnt care what I was doing or it didnt measure up to anything, but then I found a good med for me for the PPD and he saw that I was doing a measurable amount of things throughout the day whether it was for myself and loosing weight, or for our family.
He finally wised up and we started to talk a lot more about it. Without accusing each other of not doing enough. Whatever the topic might of been.

Sometimes all it takes is open dialogue or written lists of what each other does, to show the other what is accomplished. You're right that is what a spouse is there for.. but they have to know how youre feeling to support you the right way. :) Its hard work but eventually comes together with good communication!

Hey wtg on not eating out of the freezer! I was the same way and now have some how tame those cravings! its hard work! So be proud of that that!

    First of all you should be DAMN proud that you are overcoming your stress eating! It's always comforting to have the support of one's Spouse. However, he MIGHT be going through his own "thing" too. OR maybe he's getting "green eyes" that you are so focused and determined with you diet. Either he could be thinking that you're going to leave him and the twins.....OR......he wants to loose weight and get healthy too and doesn't know how to go about starting. It sounds cheese BUT open dialogue works! emoticon

How A Busy Mom Decides What To Wear!

Thursday, August 13, 2009

So my day usually goes as follows.....
Get my husband off to work
Get the babies back to sleep
drank my slim fast while checking my mail and such
workout
start my daily things like cleaning, laundry, errands, so on and so on

Now usually I get a shower before my husband goes to bed so that 1)I'm clean before I hit the sheets and 2) someone is up with the babies. Well there are days like today where we'll be going out and I need to shower during the day. It's my step son's 10th birthday and we're going to my sister-in-laws house, which is an hour away, to celebrate! So needless to say I needed to shower before we left, while nobody but me was home!! I got Aiden asleep and Nathan in his swing content.
While I was in the shower I was trying to decide what I was going to wear tonight while liistening to Nathan in the livingroom knowing that I had to hurry. I look down and realize that I need to shave my legs but washing my hair is more important!!! So that decides it, jeans it is!

  


Aerobics!

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Wow did my workout kick my butt this morning!! I don't think I was working out like I have been the past couple of days but I felt like I did 3x what I have been. Maybe my body is finally running down a little. I still feel good about everything, but I'm thinking I need to pack on a few more calories and drank some more water to get my body going more!

  


Daydreaming...

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Where to begin?? Well I guess I should admit that I think I'm addicted to this site! I've never felt better about eating better and changing my physical activity then I have these past few days. And it's super weird because although the people you talk to are complete strangers at first, their support makes me feel like it's what I need to get through. Yesterday I was in the car thinking about what I would have for lunch, which was going to have to be from some fast food reasturant! I did good though, I went through McDonalds and got a southwest chicken salad, hold the chicken (because it added more fat and cals plust I had McDonalds Meat! ) That only had 140 cals in it and then 4.5 grams of fat without dressing. So I dribbled my lime juice on it and chowed down, I was proud! But anyway, I got to thinking of this site because I go on here and check out food calories and I smiled. Yes, I smiled to myself. I just got to thinking about the few people that I have talked to so far and how much they have already inspired me to keep going. Even with just a one e-mail or comment they have impacted my decisions. Is that crazy?? I dont' think so!!!
I'm just really excited about having a site where people can come together and support eachother and get help from others to achieve their goals. Even people that have achieved their weight loss goals are still here for support and to help others, I think they're amazing!! The only negative thing I would have to say (no no, put away your pitchforks!!) is that we're trying to get up and get moving, but at the same time you are trying to earn all these points, which involves sitting on your bum browsing the site. I know, I know, I've gotten a lot of mine for searching recipes and such, but I could sit here all day and read blogs, I love them!! I send my husband off to work, feed the boys, get some water, and then sit for about an hour before I start my workout. Well, of course come back through out the day. But I'm just saying, it could be dangerous!! Mostly for me...
Ok, totally off track. I was just wanting to say thank you!! Thank you to everyone who has taken time out of their lives, in the past and for the future, to send me good lucks and best wishes and keep up the good work!! I truly appreciate it and know that I couldn't do it without you're kind words!!! I've told my husband this is kind of like the myspace for people that are trying to lose weight

I'm Surprised!!

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Wow it's the begining of day three and I'm still really feeling good about all of this. Usually by now I'm looking for the sweetest thing in the cabinet, I know three days, but for some reason I'm really in it this time. I have so much more to lose for now. My husband, my boys, my health!! I honostly think it's because I've made a huge step and quit smoking first. I've been struggling with that for years as well and I never thought I'd be able to jump that hurdle. So I figure since I've put that behind me I can put obesity behind me too!! I can't wait for my first official weigh in. I know that's not the most important thing, I know that I should be worrying about my eating habits and it will all come together. Do they make fat free donuts?? haha

  I like your attitude. Keep it up! You said "I know that's not the most important thing". You're right. It's not the most important thing but for me it surely means a lot! It's only normal to want to see the scale go down. It's not the whole point but it is an indicator of the important things...no joint pains, more energy to deal with the day to day obligations of being a good wife and mother, better health, looking better, smaller clothes, etc. Every day won't be a great day but as long as the good days outweigh the bad days...you're doing just fine. emoticon
