Down 19 and ready for the next

Sunday, July 03, 2011

Since restarting my goals to lose in the middle of April I am finally down 19 pounds. My next journey is the next 15-20 pounds by the end of August. Still battling with stress from kids and other problems as well but hopeful I will succeed once again on getting close to the 200 pound mark. Boy do I need all the motivation I can get.

Down 19 and ready for the next

Sunday, July 03, 2011

I recently finished up a challenge in one of my teams and YEAH I am down 19 pounds since the middle of April. Some days it still have a hard time staying focused and the kids can really push the buttons with fighting that I want to binge eat but trying to stay more focused this time. My next challenge is to lose another 15-20 pounds by the end of August. I really need motivation to stay focused because if I can accomplish this I will be close to the 200 mark once again and getting back to below it. I reached it once but after a miscarriage and a pregnancy I gained once again. Need all the motivation I can get.

  


Trying to restart and having a hard time

Saturday, January 29, 2011

I am trying once again to jump start my losing weight since having my daughter a 1 1/2 yrs ago. I struggle most days to just have time for myself with three kids. My son is going through the stage where he knows more than his mom and dad and is constantly arguing with us about everything. His grades are beginning to slip which is very unlike him and I know he is dealing with bullies but there are certain things you have to take on yourself to make them change and he never will. I have went to the school but they are of no help either. With him turing 11 a few months back we are beginning to go through puberty and changing in some ways so it's really hard there. Then our 10 yr old daughter is dyslexic so I have to constanly help her to make sure she is getting her work done right and being in 4th grade that is a challenge for most any parent now days. She is doing real well though I have to admit and her speech teaching is doing the Susan Barton program with her and it's helping as well. I work with her teachers very closely to help keep her from slipping to far on anything so she does not get left behind. The no kid left behing act is a joke now days especially in my daughters case because this school would have left her behind had it not been for me and her dad standing up for her. Now we have our little one who is 1 1/2 yr old and boy at 40 I am finding it harder and harder to keep up with her moving do fast. She is my climber and loves getting into everything but love her to pieces and she really know when momma need a kiss or just to be loved on. She is how I make it through most days but she makes it hard to get my exercise in. I have started back this week with my Walk Away The Pounds dvds with 1 and 2 mile dvds. Since I haven't been exercising in almost a year trying to start back slow so I don't mess anything up. I just have a hard time fitting what I need to do to lose the weight in will all the other things of the day. When I stress with the kids things that then makes me eat more and that is not just sweets it most anything I have in the house. I must find a balance to be able to achieve all my goals I have which are to lose 100 pounds, eat better and show my kids that you can achieve anything you set your mind on. Such a challenge though for me with this daily and so ready for a change.

    Good for you for trying to take care of yourself too! As mothers we often focus so much on the rest of the family and not so much on ourselves.

I am a mom of 4 kids ages 16-9. My two oldest we have to really keep after about school, and my daughter has epilepsy and continues to be behind in school. She is making great progress in reading now at least. I sure understand about having to keep after the school to get them the help they need. I also work full time, so between the kids and work it can seem nearly impossible to fit in the time for exercise and eating right. This year I have made it my goal to make that time for myself and set a good example for my family. I am looking to lose 60 to 80 pounds.

I wish you the best of luck! You can do it!

    I'm so sorry you're having a hard time of it. I don't have any good advice for you except to take it one day at a time and sometimes one minute at a time. I know it's a struggle, but your health is important also. I have faith that you'll be able to work out a schedule and find some important mommy time! Good luck!

Stress is my biggest trigger to overeating.

Sunday, April 11, 2010

I have come to relax that stress is my biggest trigger when I overeat. Whether it be from the kids fighting, our bills, or just everyday things that is when I tend to lean on food as my support. I have started in reading The Spark book and it has helped me realize how much I have been doing this and trying to start the change from leaning on the food to doing a 15 minuted workout to reduce the stress. So far this past week I have gotten in 150 minutes of cardio and some stretching along with it which is more than I have done in the past year since having my daughter back last June. I am refocusing and getting the priorities back in line and will achieve my goals. I write in a journal weekly especially when the stress levels rise and achieving the exercise as well.

    Yes, when the kids were little, stresses were high. But luckily my metabolism and the 18 cups of coffee kept me thin then. Now it is different. Still stress, less kids at home, but a least I can walk outside (or did before the hip break), and let the stress go that way. And I have blessed friends that I can call and Moan to...about this and that. And they are still there...amamzing...so with all the walking and drinking water, instead of turning to food, I have lost 75 pounds and keeping it off. You are doing the right. Thing. Keep it Up.

    What a good plan you have going! I personally would never make it without the endorphin genies...they take the legs right out from under the "stress monster".
Good job!

Down with the flu

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Well I headed to the doc this morning and am battling the flu along with sinus problems as well. I started the Tamiflu with a cough med and nose spray to help with sinus congestion. I guess this would explain all my tiredness from yesterday. I pray for a speedy recover and hope to get some exercise by the end of the week.

  Am glad you're feeling better. Make sure you get plenty of rest and liquids. Your body needs time to recover (both from childbirth & the flu). Take care.

Oh......when exercising......I find taking a spray of Advair 15 mins to a half hour before helps.

You're in my prayers.

P.S. Your baby girl is adorable! emoticon
