So after a really bad day yesterday fighting with my Ex for trick or treating time with my kids (which i lost btw) i got my kids and took them back to my parents house so they could crash while i went and picked up Andrew.
Let me just say: Idk the picture you guys, as my readers, paint in your head of him. Lol. but hes prolly nothing like what you imagine. Heck, i might be nothing like you Imagine. lol. (i promise to get some pics of ME up here soon.) anyways.... Andrew is about 5'5" and hes a very thin man. And when he's on the road he does not shave often and his hair gets really long....so im expecting to see my bf (whom last i saw had short hair and was clean cut, LOL) and i picked up this man who, hopefully he forgives me, looked a little like tom hanks in cast away. LOL. I love him anyways, and i still LOVED seeing his face. lol.
SO anyways, after a warm welcome and short drive, i took him home. ANd he proceeded to tell me about his flight. SO for quick reference i should give you a little background into the exact type of person Andrew is. Andrew is an attention hog, lol. Hes a Leo, so that helps you understand a little. Hes pretty high on his own mountain. lol. which i LOVE. but he deff is a little crazy sometimes. so he proceeds to tell me about this comedian he watched just a few hours before he was set to fly.
And if anyone knows who this comedian is, Please share. cuz i should thank him. lol
So he says "this comedian was like, 'you know i was on a plane, and ya'll should try this next time your on a plane' and i thought HEY I'm FLYING SOON, WHAT IS IT? and the guy says 'you know how everytime you land in a new city the flight attendants always come over the announcer and they say 'we'd like to be the first to welcome you to [insert city]' well, i decided to stand up before they could and shout WELCOME TO [insert city]!!! and ooooh did it piss them off' so i thought...i'm totally going to do that."
and i said "You didnt?!"
and he says "oh yeah i totally did.... when we touched down in chicago....i stood up and yelled to the whole plane 'WELCOME TO CHICAGO!!!"
I laughed so hard, and i said "yeah, how did the flight attendants take it?"
he said "they just came over the announcer later and in a really dull voice said 'Welcome to Chicago'"
I just said "OMG, you would!"
LOL. we laughed pretty hard about it, and i did mainly because here is my BF with a super scruffy beard, and long hair, not carrying any bags...wearing a sweatshirt and torn jeans and a ball cap...and hes a very small thin man. So....imagine. Just Imagine. i'm sure all those people on that plane thought he was either a terrorist or a crazy person for sure.
But we had a good laugh about it.
it was wonderful to see him. i can't wait to see him again tonight for dinner.
Life is blissful right now. :-)

So yesterday was such a horrible morning.... with all these storm surges going on, the whole east coast in feeling the crazy weather. and yesterday was no exception....First i get a text 15 minutes before i was suppose to leave to take my kids to school, that their school is closed for the day....Soo....i was out my babysitter. So i tried to call everyone i knew that was CLOSE to where i was, and Noone was available, so my bff (who is a 40 minute drive from me) offered to watch them....so i called work, said "i'm going to be late....blah blah blah" so i start making my way on the 40 minute drive....3/4 of the way there, Callahan (my 1 year old) Vomits all over my back seat..... UGH. so i called my bff and said "hey we're not coming afterall, i think Cal might be sick...." and then i called into work... but just then...the stars must have aligned, cuz i got my morning phone call from Andrew....
so he asks "So what are you doing for halloween?" and i said "well with the way today is starting out, maybe nothing. idk." and i started to huff and puff about my cruddy morning...and he said "well i could try to cheer you up?"
and i said "yeah how?"
and he said "i can tell you what i am doing for halloween."
meanwhile, in my head, i know he is in Reno, NV right now. so i said something smart alleck like "what driving to vegas, gonna go crazy?"
and he said.... "no, i'll be flying to flint, mi."
MY HEART JUMPED! All of a sudden all the crap that happened that morning didnt matter....and i just said "yeah? why, for how long?"
and he said "I quit yesterday."
so...needless to say, i'm ecstatic. hes flying in tonight, i get to go pick him up at 10:30 from the Airport.
Wonderful wonderful, surprise. :-)

SO yesterday at my bff's house. Her fiance looked at me and was like "Are you losing weight?" and i just lit up, and was like "i'm trying yes, THANK YOU!" so it was pretty much the perfect ending to a not so perfect weekend. With court over my children on monday and a weekend away from them, i went off track a bit from sunday until yesterday. this time change is really killing my sleep pattern. i havent been able to wake myself up early enough in the morning to get my workout in. But im working on it, i will get back on track.
This is a short blog. just cuz i dont have much to discuss. just trying to get back on track with eating healthy.
Much love and Hard work to everyone!

So last weekend, after my first week of consistently dieting, i checked my weight. and i was UP A POUND!! before i paniced i did alot of research online and found that it is very common for people to go up in weight, especially women, when they begin a new diet program and weight loss program.
I've been trying to make sure my calorie differential doesnt dip past -700 calories max and most days i stay right around 500. But it is not easy everyday.
Somedays i just want to eat the junk and not log it and pretend i never had it. like it doesnt count, like it doesnt add up.
But i know it does. Because all the rest of it does. So im staying consistant and trying hard not to feel guilty for tripping up from time to time. Last weekend we went to an apple orchard with my kids and my bffs kids. So i had a donut and felt pretty awful about it for about an hour. But i let it go, and just told myself that tomorrows a new day and one donut doesnt mean i can't or won't lose weight and its deff NOT a reason to give up. So im not giving up.
I talked to my sister last night, she is really proud of me and cheering me on. So i'm going to continue to do my best and make her proud. She suggested (since she a personal trainer and crossfitter) that i not weigh myself for about a month. That way i can see a significant difference and feel good about it. She said because i may continue to gain for about 3 weeks until my body really adjusts to all the new things im introducing it too. So im going to take her word for it. It will be hard to stay off the scale, but i want this more than anything right now, and i do want to see my hard work pay off so im going to wait.
Hope everyone else is doing well.
I'll post more this weekend. Much love to all....
most people would say Good LUCK this weekend, but you know what? in healthy eating and making yourself better, i feel like you carve your own masterpeice. You work hard to get results, not luck. So
Good HARD WORK to everyone this weekend.
heres to making it worth every second. :-)

Its my lunch hour at work, which is when i usually blog. So here we go, Yesterday i feel like was one of my first Hump days... a day that felt very uphill. I ate dinner way to early and by the time it was time for me to go to bed i was getting hungry. So i checked my calories and had a small snack, i stayed under my max calories which is good. I just am trying to balance eating times with work and sometimes its difficult. After i had my late snack i stayed up a little while with my new found energy and got some much needed house work done. I've learned that if i pace myself my housework doesn't get to overwhelming. In the past i would let it all go and get very overwhelmed when i had SO much to do, i would have to set aside an ENTIRE day just to devote to getting stuff in order again. It is hard to spend time with my kids while i do housework but i decided to cut myself a little slack with my kids. I complete at least 2 important house chores a day. And then if i get lucky enough to get something else done, i do. But as long as i dont let stuff get to out of hand i dont worry that much about it. it keeps my mind from fogging from EVERYTHING. I used to see a therapist and she used to help me with stuff like this, i feel like SparkPeople is my new therapist. A Do-it-Yourself therapist. its great.
On a venting notice: It is very frustrating to see beautiful woman that are not very confident. I used to be there. i was in a terrible relationship for 6 years and almost got married, until i met a very wonderful friend who helped build me up finally as opposed to breaking me down like EVERYONE in my life prior to that had done. I just wish i could help some women i know get my newfound mindset with the snap of my fingers. You know? Like when you try really hard to tell someone something and they are just not ready to hear it. I try not to push on people my opinion of their lives, they are their trials to be had. Its just hard to be a spectator when i've already won the game in my own life. So a message to all the women out there who feel they really want some more self confidence.... go get it! Do whatever it takes, find a friend, someone who builds you up and decide to only listen to their word. Think of God, Pray. Because when you get here, and you know you can do anything you set your mind to... life can be blissful. (not that you dont still have bad days, but when you arent blaming yourself, bad days just seem to be alot easier to get through)
Did insanity again today! Woo Hoo! Thats my own PR on a consistancy standpoint. Tomorrow i will have reached my weekly goal of doing it everyday. and since i reached that this week i KNOW i can reach it for another week. Thats what i am going to do...take Insanity a week at a time. Not 60 days. Just one more WEEK! and then so on and so on.
Im sending out Andrews Message in a bottle tomorrow. Still dont know what it is going to say. But i can't wait. He says hes doing good. He makes me laugh, which is good. Cuz he gets pretty lonely while hes gone so i know hes not feeling so depressed as usual. I know he says hes looking forward to being home thanksgiving. I cant wait either.
How is everyones consistancy going? My co-workers and i are all doing sparkpeople...and we check in with eachother everyday. They are steady to...Steady steady steady.
