Trying out a two week, no cheat plan. My hope is that this will get me back into the swing of things and boost my motivation. I am hoping if I look at things day by day for 2 weeks, it won't be so over whelming. These two weeks I have decided to not eat after dinner, eat oatmeal and less sugary breakfast foods and stick to protein (shakeology) and veggies based dinners. I am trying to eat more fresh foods for snack, like an apple or salad. I also will be waking up to go to the gym every morning before my family wakes, yes you heard that right. I am so excited!I have told this plan to my husband and he is going to help me not cheat. Here's to the next two weeks. I'll let you know how it goes March 21st

It's wonderful to have him home again. Now time to try to focus on myself, not just our boys :)

Well I have 4 wonderful, healthy, gorgeous little boys. But, each of my pregnancies I am unable to workout due to preterm labor. I also eat like a crazy lady when pregnant. In short, I have gained around 60 pounds with each of my four boys. I am not one of those, gain the baby weight and it falls off kind of ladies. EACH time after having a baby I have had to fight to get that weight off, fight hard. Each time has been harder than the time before. First time, fell off as soon as I started trying, second, had to push a bit harder but got it off. After my third son, I had to work hard to get it off and it took over a year. This time, my son if 9 months old and I am still no where near my goal.
My husband deployed back in September and is now coming back this month. I look the same, and I feel like I failed us both.
It was pretty much impossible for me to lose weight while he was gone, my stress level was at an all time high.
It is not easy raising four boys, all 6 and under, by myself. Especially while living in ND and it's often way to cold to even leave the house.
I feel my health is declining. I really need to step it up, now.
I don't know why my motivation is so hard to come by. I look in the mirror and get sad, I am always thinking of healthier options, but seldom do it.
Anyone have any tips? I really need to step it up so I can be a healthy mommy to my boys!
Deployment, with children was pretty much the hardest thing I have ever done. So glad it's almost over.

My husband has officially been deployed for a week now... It has been the hardest week ever! We have been apart before, 6 months while we were engaged. About 2 months for tech school, a month or 2 for basic and a couple months for school. BUT we have never had children while he has been gone. Now I am facing 5 months without him and with our 4 young boys, Noah 6, Ezra 4, Bobby 2, and Moses almost 5 months. I have had no time for myself, my kids have been throwing more tantrums, my 6 year old has been crying in school.. it has been hard! I am not looking forward to the holidays without my sweet hubby. We live in North Dakota and it gets crazy cold here... like -40 with the wind chill. Not sure how I am going to manage?
Really had high weigh loss goals or this deployment 30-40 pounds. but this last week has been so hard.. I have been a bit sad, and stressed... so eating more than I should. Not to mention I had the goal to workout nights, too hard in the morning with getting my kids ready for school and all the things I need to do.. but by the time night hits I am EXHAUSTED! So I am thinking maybe figure out something in the morning now? It has been an adjustment far worse than I was expecting! :( Thankfully it is getting a little better each day. I am feeling lonely, my husband and I are very close. During the day, it is kinda how it always is because I stay at home and my hubby works. BUT at night and evenings/weekends I feel pretty lonely! I have not been sleeping at night so well, I am sure that doesn't help with the weight loss. Anyway, really need to step it up and try to be happy! Any words of advice?
My boys got their daddy dolls in the mail today! Hope they help :)
