Tell each student how great they are!

Get Christmas Tree Down
Clean House to at least a 5
Work on 1 organization project

Play a game with the boys at least 3 times this week
Read a book to the boys every night (Wyatt reading to us doesn't count)
Try to let Steven know at least once this week that I really love him

Healthy Me:
Walk on the treadmill at least 3 times this week
Alter my diet to stay within my calorie allowance

Ok it is in black and white.

Day 8 & 9

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Day 8 - Exhausted. I'm sure it's my cycle added with Tucker up 8 times night, but exhaustion has set in. I did go to spinning class, but it was harder than normal. I also broke down and drank 2 pops hoping the caffeine would give me a boost, but no such luck. I also ate a little more protein than I should have.

Day 9 - Just starting out. Did my measurements today I actually bought a tape last night since mine has been missing in action. My last measurements were in September I think and I thought I would see a lot of inches gone, but I only lost like an inch on the waist, 1/2 inch on the hips and 1/2 inch on the calf. I'm more than disappointed. I was feeling that things were shrinking, but I was mistaken. The scale is going down right now and I guess that I should focus on that positive. Well I've got a million things to do before waking the little ones for school. Hoping to make day 9 positive!

Day 6 was just as bad as day 5 so I'm not even going there.

Thank God it's Monday and it was a marvelous Monday at that. In check food wise for the most part and even got in a kickboxing class. So feeling good about this week and hoping it sets up a fantastic week!

    Hey. It looks like you are having a rough go of it. That sucks. It is hard to handle eight things at once and one of them being trying to diet. I just started too. I know that it can be hard, on top of all the other b.s. you have to deal offence. If you want a "diet buddy" feel free to sparkmail me to talk about stuff or whatevs, I am rooting for ya! Good Luck to you.

Day 5

Sunday, March 11, 2012

One word describes today.....DISASTER! Over 2000 calories and those calories included; truffles, cookies, sweedish fish, brownies, and lots of diet soda.

I have not found a cooping mechanism for my emotional eating and that is very evident with yesterday. I had a very emotional funeral of a lovely lady that will truly be missed. Then a horrible fight with my husband, in which we haven't really talked since. It's hard because I know he's miserable and really never truly loved me, but I love him with all my heart and selfishly can't leave. He can't leave because of the kids and before them it was his great fear of change and the unknown. I wish I could give him what he wants, but I'm afraid we are past that. Now it is time to find the courage to do what is needed, or change myself completely. I don't know I'm confused, tired, and emotionally spent. So now it is me just keeping my mouth shut in more than one way.

Got to go, I'll post later if day 6 goes any better.


Day 4

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Did great all day until I got home a little snacking and then one too many trips to the salad bar. Tomorrow a funeral and then Sunday Jigs dinner. We'll see if I ruin all progress our not.
