And I'm ok with that! Sure, I jump on here, once every year or so, with the great intentions of keeping up with it, because I know it's a great thing...but it just never really works out like that, does it? Ah, well! One thing I've learned in the past year or so, it's what not to stress about.
Lost some permanent weight, but I haven't been focused enough, and had the usual curveballs thrown at me, exercise-wise. Went on a fantastic trip to Holland, even managed to lose six pounds, but sprained my ankle while I was there, so I'm sure I gained it all back. Nothing packs on the fat like pain and self-pity. BUT, here I am now, ready to rev it up again, and I have a three-month schedule of exercise clenched in my fist, and determination and support from a bunch of awesome women in a Facebook group called "Fit Bitches" (join them if you haven't already!), my great friend Suzanne, and my husband! I can't fail now! RIGHT!?!? RIGHT!!!!
Been doing DDP Yoga - yes, that's DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE, the wrestler - and it's awesome! I enjoy doing it every time, and I am committed to doing it more and more every day! I've been eating some crap here and there, but I know that if I get a firm grip on exercise, everything else will fall into place. I love eating healthy. I love being healthy!

So, yes, it has been several weeks, but in my defense, I have been working on finishing up school, and I have taken on another baby at work, so I have less free time there. I bought some orthotics for my shoes, and my plantar fasciitis has mellowed out quite a bit. It only hurts if I am on my feet too much or if I don't wear shoes at all. Lots of foot stretches!
It has been really hot here in Maine, and since the 4th of July, I have not been keeping track of exercise OR what I'm eating. I haven't GAINED anything, but I haven't LOST anything either...Will and I started the Fat Smash on Saturday, though, and it is cool to show him what to do. I'm sure the pounds will just melt off him, since he is used to eating whatever and however much he wants all day, every day. I don't think he really knows what it is like to be hungry! I adjusted some things for him, because of his diabetes, but his calories are 1500 or less a day - probably half of what he was eating before - so he should still see some results. Now that I'm back on track eating-wise, though, I really need to focus on my "bread-and-butter" - WORKING OUT! I just have to remember that it is actually nice and cool in the gym, I think. Plus, now that I don't have to worry about homework or classes, I have more time available. I just need to stop volunteering my time for this, that, and the other. I had a friend ask me if I could watch her baby at night, and I have such a hard time saying no, but I really need to.
My goal right now is to lose25 pounds by Dementia Five's first show - September 17. I know I can do it if I stick to the plan, so here goes nothin'!
I think I might start doing video blogs...

So, still doing the Fat Smash diet...having a tough time exercising as much as I'd like, because I have plantar fasciitis in my right foot, BUT I'm still doing it a few times a week, and its definitely working! Starting to see and feel a difference in my belly - can't wait for my face to start shrinking! Not too good about blogging, and still working on logging in my food regularly, but I'm definitely doing better than I was, so...
Mom is doing great, though! Since she's the only person who read my blogs - Good job, Mom, keep up the great work! Love you!

Ok, so I finally got a new laptop of my own, and my mom talked me into doing the Extreme Fat Smash diet with her. So, I am attempting to log in my foods and exercise AGAIN on this site. So far, so good, though....I'm on Day 4, and have logged stuff in. The only thing I really deviated from was the amount of exercise yesterday, but since today is a "rest" day, and I will be working out for at least an hour later, I will more than make up for it. Foodwise, I've been doing pretty good sticking to the menu. Its easy to spot my trouble foods when I log them in, since cheese and nuts always put me way higher in calories than my mom is, and we should be essentially in the same realm.
It was a really, really tough winter in many different ways, but Will and I are starting up a new project called Dementia Five, and my job is really awesome. Makes it hard to complain. I am ready for things to start looking up and staying up!

Back again...it's a trend with me, I guess, this inconsistency on diet sites.
I will be starting a new job Wednesday, with twin girls, 14 months old. Friday was my last day with the Butts and Spires kids, and I took them to York Beach, then to the Animal Kingdom to ride on some rides. I'm psyched I got to give Cole and Tyler their first ferris wheel ride ever. I'm really sad about not being able to see them every day anymore, but I'm excited to get to know Isis and Naila, and teach them all kinds of new things!
I had a major falling-out with a close friend, and the whole experience has taught me a couple important life lessons that I will be using and following from here on out. Will and I have a good friend, John, who has started working on his health, too, and I think the three of us will make a good team this summer.
My new schedule gives me a four-day weekend, and I have decided to make Fridays "Adventure Fridays", which means I will be planning an outing for myself every Friday, and announce them each week, in case anyone wants to join me. This week, I'll be climbing Jockey Cap in Fryeburg...I'll see if I can talk Mom into joining me, too! I need to pick up my brother Roland's car, and I figured that mountain was small enough to be a good one to start on!
I'm also starting online college courses this Wednesday, to finish my degree! I have certification credits in Early Childhood Education, but have decided to just bite the bullet and open a few doors for myself. I think I have Will almost talked into joining in to learn some computer graphics programs to add to his degree, too.
It's definitely a good time for change, and I'm all in.
