I did really great with my goals for the day until about 11:30 pm then it happened. Not even sure y - maybe it was just too much thinking about things. Regardless as to y I ate cinnamon popcorn; godiva chocolate; & sour cream & onion potatoe chips.
I guess the reality of the next 6 mths I will most likely b on my own w/o my hubby just got to me.
Prayerfully my daughter will find this week if she's gonna b able to move out of here. La is just off the hook lately I honestly that part of the problem is that her mother is her.

I'm not gonna stress too much about the over eatting instead I'm just gonna move forward & get right back on track

    Thanks for being so honest! When you can be honest about it, that's half the battle. All of us sometimes have to get off track; we'll go crazy if we don't. Just pick right back up where you left off. I like the saying that you can start the day all over again at any moment. So just start the day over! You can do it!!

You can calculate how many calories you burned while painting! I applaud you for challenging yourself to do 90 minutes of cardio six days a week! I don't think I could do that, even when I can get back in my pool! That's a lotta cardio!!!

Well today is National Puzzle Day (I have an Oriental Trading Calendar & it has all this neat national days).
It's ironic that in national puzzle day I figure out that my life is a puzzle. It is up 2 me to fit it all together & properly. I have to put the puzzle known as Maga together noone else is gonna notice when the edges don't fit right but I do. It is up 2 me to figure out how to make time for everything I do & want to do.
I don't do what alot of ppl consider 'work', but my job doesn't end @ a certain time I don't get a day off. If I get a break from one part of my life there is always something else I need to b dealing with.
My dad has 2 b given his medicine & reminded to eat each of his meals not to mention he can't prepare or heat up his own food.
La has to b taken 2 school, church, dr's & counseling not 2 mention scheduling play dates & visitation with her parents.
I m a site supervisor @ an after-school reading program @ a local elementary school 2 days a wk & I volunteer @ my church's high school 1x a wk 2 teach Violence Prevention. I Deacon & teach sunday school & there is the Friday night 4 Everyone which included youth group (I focus on jr high). During the summer I coordinate the VBS
Family call me whenever they r planning parties 2 come up wit ideas. I m also an ear to many of them.
There is the house which do to the years of neglect b4 we took over there is always something needing to b fixed. The animals taken care of cause they r important 2 keep around 4 dad.
I have a marriage & 3 grown children who seem to forget that they on there own. I'm NaNa to 5 precious granddaughters & I spend as much time with my God-children & nieces & nephews. Family especially this past yr has become very important 2 me.
As all of those puzzle pieces have always seemed to fit so well together I've come 2 realize that there were alot of jagged edges on my puzzle I FINALLY FIGURED OUT Y THE PUZZLE DIDN'T FIT QUITE RIGHT. There was No ME TIME, there was no time scheduled for Maga 4 exercising for chatting with friends online. No time 4 healhty food & 2 figure out wat that even meant. 4 me. No time even 2 read a book.

It has changed especially over the past 6 mths; the puzzle is finally together no jagged edges; no pieces forced to fit where they don't belong; there may still b a few missing pieces BUT by the Grace of God - I do now c what the puzzle is really suppose to look like.

One of my favorite parts of the puzzle as I look @ it is the corner marked Sparkpeople. It is 1 of the corner stones right along w/ my Lord & Savior. It's amazing cause next 2 my hubby (who is my best friend, confidant, & cheo); everyday that I wake is so much easier to deal with because I have God & then my wonderful Spark-friends to get me thru anything that life throws @ me.

Today was my weigh in @ curves & in 3 wks of working out I only lost 1 lb (2lbs on here cause its been 4 wks).
I know that I have 2 give my body time to adjust to my new routine BUT seriously I was doing alot less cardio then I m now.
I know that I can't give up & I won't but I just want 2 cry. Although I m proud that as I was riding my bike pas Burger King I didnt stop & get that delicious $1.00 double cheeseburger mmmmm, they r sooo good.
Poor hubby, when he called today & I told him about how little I lost he was 'BABE THATS GREAT YOUR LOSING AGAIN' & I snapped on him I did apologize I was just so discouraged, but he made me feel better. He made me realize how far I've come & that I'm still going. (I m truly blessed to have him as my hubby)
I m no going 2 focus on moving forward & keeping my February Goals.

    Don't get too discourage and give in to temptation. Just note you may be gaining muscle or in a plateau status right now. Just keep doing the good work and it will eventually catch up. ((hugs)) I know exactly how you feel...... emoticon

    I kn ow what you mean about those Burger King double cheeseburgers. I see the sign advertising them and I think, "Wow". Then I remember I am a sparker and drive right on by.
You are doing great. Your body is adjusting.

    I know how discouraging it can be when the scale barely moves. But losing anything is nothing to scoff at when you know you're trying hard, as you are. You should be proud of yourself! I'm so glad that your hubby is supportive of you because that makes all the difference. Your hubby sounds a lot like mine, and I couldn't ask for a better one either!

I have decided to challenge myself for Feb.

I challenge myself to do 90 mins of cardio 6 days a wk.

I challenge myself to eat within my calorie intake every day. NO EXCEPTIONS.

I challenge myself to blog or journal everyday.

This is my way of not just getting back on track but jump starting my weight lost. I've been teasing my daughter that I will weigh less then her by Easter (it's my way of trying to get herto take her weight serious). I havent been on a scale since I went back to curves a little over 2 wks ago; Friday is my weigh in, sooooo we'll c how I'm doing then.
