Hi all! Sure wish I could utilize this site more and connect with the community more. I go to school have a five year old and work. Pretty tight schedule. My work and school involves A LOT of screen time so getting on here is a challenge.
What would be some suggestions from all of you. Wish it had a Facebook like check in.
On the health and fitness front. I'm doing pretty good. Finding the balance. I didn't gain a whole lot during the holidays. I did eat off my usual choices. I didn't feel well when I did have too much sugar,fats or what ever.
So detoxing off sugar is what I'm doing again. Going to try gluten free too. I've notice tummy pro blems when I eat gluten. So I'll see if it helps.
Love sparks! Hoping to grow a friendship or two here. All the best!

Hi everyone! Miss you all. I'm challenging myself to check back in. Life has picked up like I kinda thought it never would again! LOL. Okay maybe I am sorta a catastrophes :) I'm trying to recover from that! Anyway, full time mom, full time work, full time school. Very little time for fitness. And my hips have been feeling it! I've been sitting at a desk more then I ever have in my life. No likey!
So I've come to the realization I need to get up a half hour earlier to fit fitness back in. And use this site for checkins and accountability. It's not that I don't want to, for real finding the time has become the issue. So up at 430. I will be kind to myself too. I know school will not be a forever thing. It's ebb and flow. Right now the tide is high :) I've missed using the site.

Again WOW!! What a major shake up life has thrown. All good. I'm back at school full time and working park time. Which is why the blogs here have disappeared. I'm studying Multimedia and Design. Loving every minuet of it. I work part time at our local community college. AHC, it's the shining star in our little town. Loving every minuet of that too!
Life has gotten pretty full and now I have a hard time fitting my fitness schedule into the week. I am doing it! Just not as much as I'd like! I've switched up to more weight training too. We women need that weight training as we age!
Dusty is doing very well he started Kinder this year!! Yikes! He loves, loves, loves it!
We have been getting out and about in our area, traveling the Central Coast of California. Lots of good stuff to do around here! Good food and great produce! We went to one of our favorite farms yesterday and picked up some goodies. Apples, tomatoes, squash, peppers and beets.
I have been able to maintain the weight loss, pretty pleased with that! I think a big tool for me is the scale. I weigh myself every morning. Just so I keep it real. I didn't when I was gaining the 20 lbs. Seeing my numbers helps.
Hope all of you are doing well.

Lost a few pounds again. Stuck with the plan. It was just frustrating for a few days. I get that icky low-garde depression once in awhile. I don't think I'm the only one:) It will set in and I have to do stuff/wait it out to pass. It hasn't been as bad as I've had in the past.
So no word on the job. Talking to friends and a mentor, hate when I start beating myself up. Get to far, "into" me and what I have, have not, can't, can do....Anyone else? So working on things one step at a time.
Buggy is doing GREAT!!! getting ready for Halloween:) have a costume to make. Geo from one of his programs :) , Team Umi Zoomi lol. I'm blessed. We've gone to pumpkin patches around here, from SLO to Solvang. The gas prices have kinda put a damper on our trips. And honestly time at school too:)
I know God will give me a position in his time, when I'm really ready. I think I am NOW, BUT a girlfriend just got this great position, she has her 1.3 year old daughter in childcare from 7:45 am to 4:45pm. She has her mom take A and pick her up. I think I am ready now, however honestly I feel anxious thinking about having Bugs in care like that. 5 days a week, that is a long time to be away, I can't be a good mom with that schedule. I know I would be tired, cranky and resentful. And it would come out at everyone around me.
So I will get the position when I can handle it.
