Busiest week this year

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I've had some busy weeks and sometimes I find there just isn't enough time in the day but this week has proven to be the busiest yet. I can see that I am getting things accomplished though so I figure that is a good thing. Moving is always hectic and moving the week of my 30th birthday is getting to me. I've decided I'm not going to much moving tomorrow on my b-day. I think I deserve a rest.The exercise of moving is a good thing though. I'm trying to think positive. If I'm not on much in the next couple days I apologize to my spark friends but I'll be living out of boxes for the next week or so.

Moving on

Friday, February 11, 2011

Well this week has had its ups and downs. I am proud that I have lost 3 pounds. It isn't alot in 2 months but it sure is better than gaining weight. I'm moving forward. I am very proud of that. I'm also really moving and I'm hoping that will be some good exercise. My husband and I are going out for dinner tomorrow night and I have prepared by looking at the menu online and choosing a lower cal meal. I hope I can stick to this. Have a great weekend:)

Well, even though I haven't seen any on-scale victories. I have had people ask me if I have lost weight. So I guess I must be doing the right thing. I want to thank all my spark friends for encouraging me to not give up even when the going gets tough.

    feeling better is a great change... not all changes can be measured out. And sometimes the changes happen in such small amounts we cant see it because we are looking so hard at our selves everyday. But the people around us notice these things alot faster. So good for you that people are picking up on all your hard work. That is great motivation!

Recovering and getting back on track

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Well, this week has been difficult to say the least I managed to catch the flu probably from my 4 year old son who brought it home from school. I can honestly say that I haven't been that sick in years. I finally feel like I am able to start getting back on track. I lost weight while being sick but its not weight loss that I am proud of because I accomplished it but I guess any weight loss is good. Now I just have try not to put the weight back on. My son now has a cold it seems like the sickness is never ending around here. I have to make time for myself and that has been my toughest challenge so far. I have the will and want to make the changes its just I don't have the time. So my goal for the next two months is going to be to carve out some time for my self. I know its going to be a hard challenge with all the responsibilities I have but if I don't then I will keep having the same issues. I know this is the root of most of my problems because I am so busy taking care of everyone else that I rarely have time to take care of myself. But if I can't take care of myself then I am really cheating all those that I take care of. I know if I do this in the long run I will be happier and hopefully healthier. I hope you all have a happy and healthy day.

Emotions running high

Friday, January 21, 2011

Well, today was weigh in day and I gained weight again. My life has just seemed too busy lately. I can't seem to find time for myself or get enough done. I feel like I'm in a race that the finish line is always moving just out of my view. I found out we are moving into a smaller place and I have been struggling to get rid of some things and I have fit in some exercise and have been eating ok. My nutrition report says I'm not eating enough. I feel so down lately and hope my doctor doesn't want to increase my anti-depressants. They make me gain weight too. I hope this mood doesn't last cause I am struggling to keep it together. Sorry I don't want to be a downer but I feel like I'm moving backwards when I'm taking steps to move forward. I hope everyone else is doing well in their journey.

    Hi Melissa, Thanks for the support - I was thinking of you yesterday and wondering if your health was better. I also hope everything goes well with you and I too have struggled with depression most of my life. I find it funny when someone says I am so positive...funny how we mask ourselves so often in front of other people...I am here and checking in almost every day...I used to say to myself about my "duties" housework is never ending therefore I am finished when I want to be lol. Hugsss g/f

    Life has a way of holding us back... I some times picture myself trying to pull away as other try and pull me back. Because if I do well and change my self they will feel bad about them selves because they can not find the motivation that I have. Everytime I go to the gym I dread going, but everytime I leave the gym i'm super glad I was there.

They say nothing worth doing is easy, so this weight loss thing and healthy life style but really be worth doing. Find people to fill your life with that will make you want to do more, not just for your self but alos for them. Find people that will help feed you the motivation you need, and they feed off of the motivation you give.

You have a good looking son, and soon he will be into sports and want to do cub scouts and boy scouts... you will love yourself for being healthy to be able to do that for him and with him also... once you get more healthy I almost bet instead of a doc upping your anit depression meds, I bet he could lower them. alot of the "junk" we eat has stuff in it that just makes us blah.

I truely wish you the best, keep your chin up and remember to smile... it is such a pretty thing to keep all to your self. And when you smile it will make someone else want to smile, and so on and so on. then you can smile even bigger thinking about the chain reaction you just started. :)

Have a great weekend.
