OMG I have 2 new reasons to get skinny!!!!

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

My husband won 2 amazing trips for this year! He sells BMW's in Upstate New York sold enough new cars to have us invited to Kona, Hawaii for 6 days in October! 3 years ago he won the trip to Kuahi and now Kona!!!! So that trip gives me time to get it together. He also was chosen for professional council which only invites 12 salespeople from the whole country! On this trip they are invited for actual ideas and imput for future production. We will be going to Colorado Springs, Colorado. We have never been there before also. It looks beautiful. That trip is in June during the week of our 19th anniversary. Ok, so thats not alot of time to get it together. Help!

    How exciting for you! I have only been to British Columbia and Yukon Territory for major trips! You and your husband are so very lucky!

I can just see you vibrating as you wrote this blog! Yippee!

Join a bootcamp. I did the 28 day bootcamp and that helped me lots just to be commited to something. I think that I am going to rejoin it again.

The other thing is to move. Don't ask the kids to get it for you, think of all of the extra calories that you would burn without realizing it.

I am sure that you other friends have really good ideas too. I have a habit NOT to read their comments just so I don't feel swayed in my ideas.

Good Luck! I am so happy for you!

  That's awesome!! I'm jealous, Hawaii is one of my favorite places in the world. And you get to go to Colorado too. Nice to know he's hard work really paid off for you both.

Not feeling so hot today

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

Josh was home yesturday with a stomache bug. Poor thing. He was sick as a dog. He feels he is up to go to school today. He is such a diligent person. He always amazes me. I woke up with a headache and feel sick to my stomache. I took some ibuprofin so I hope this will pass soon. Still doing great with my eating. I really don't get why its so easy right now but I'm not going to worry about it and just be happy it is. I went to dance again last night. It was a tough class but awesome. I just love it. I feel so much better when I do it. Have a good day Spark friends!

    Sharing bugs is never a good idea. They'll get you sick almost every time!! emoticon

Do take it easy.

Great that you are doing so well on the eating part.

Well another day...

Monday, February 28, 2011

We went to PF Changs Saturday night with the boys and Adam was definitely off. After dinner he told me he wanted to tell Josh tonight that he is gay. So we went home and were going to start a movie and Adam asked us to start the conversation. Josh was very surprised but held up ok. I know he holds everything in usually so we will see as time goes on how he is really doing. Adam I think is happy that he knows. I'm amazed that Adam is doing so well at 15 going through all he is. He told us that only one boy in his freshman class is out and he is a jerk. He really is. We know him from elementary school and he made Adams life miserable. Adam really wants to date though. I know he is 15 but he really needs to focus on school and the dating will happen later. Our friend Mike said Adam needs to chill a bit and let everything sit for a while and work on school. He said this can be family business for now. I asked him to wait to see Karen his therapis before he tell kids at school. We will see. For me, my eating has been pretty good this weekend. I'm not sure why I have control of it right now. My exercise was awesome this week. It felt great to be back on schedule with it. I'm going to a dance class tonight and honestly can't wait already! Have a great day friends! I know a few of you have really been here for me during this transition in our family. Thank you so much for your guidence and support. I know its a process and I thank you for being here for me.

    I had to go back in your posts to see what was going on. My goodness! You have been through the wringer! I mean, I as a parent would be just as upset, scared, sad, insecure of the future holds.

You did the right things it seems.

Getting a therapist. Researching and learning at how to deal with the whole situation.

I do hope that you get Josh some therapy too. He is going to need it. When things become more open, he may not know how to handle this.

You are a loving parent, that is blessed with a supportive husband.

My heart goes out to you during all of this.

Keep up taking care of yourself during all of this, you have come far and you will again. Just by reading on what you have managed in the past...You are strong.

Take care.

My eating is bad

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Wow hanging out with the trigger foods this weekend. I'm just pulling them all out. Bagels, cookies crackers. Holy cow just going for it. I did have an awesome work out on Thursday. Omg loved it. I am going to the gym this morning. I'm just overwhelmed by my food choices. Completely off the mark. I had one and half cookies for breakfast. I'm Sparking like crazy. Messageboards, articles, I know I'm not tracking but would you want to if you were doing what I am doing.

    That sounds like me.....but I always have good intentions in the morning when I am making out my meal plan for the day ...then half way into the day it gets all screwed up....and I am hating myself at the end of the day, cause I didn't have the will power to just say NO and eat the right foods instead....I can't even lose 5 pounds this time...what is wrong with me???? I have lost 20 in the past and felt GRrrrr-ate !!! but now, I am more frustrated then ever!! I have got to get back on the ball and stick to my meal plans every day no matter what I am doing, where I am at, or how I am feeling at that time..... You go girl....I am with U 100%.....maybe together keeping an eye on one-another we can lose some more!!!

    No, I wouldn't. How about not tracking on Spark and just writing down on a little journal for a while. Then when you are ready to start finding out just how many calories you're putting in. Use the tracker.

As hard as this seems, don't buy the bagels, cookies and stuff. I go to the store and I think to myself, next time. I'm not perfect, but I have found that if those temptations aren't in the house, I have to find something else to eat.

Once again inspired by friends

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Well friends you did it again! I came to Spark this morning to blog and just felt like I was going to whine through the entire blog. I thought no one wants to read my complaints again. So I decided to check out the blogs my friends have posted. I started smiling almost immediately. :) My friends have a way of bringing me out of my little world and help me focus on the big picture. I thank you all for that. Now I'm not saying there won't ever be a whine here or there and am glad to see a bit of it on your blogs. I think its necessary to be honest so we can help ourselves throught the tough stuff. But I feel sometimes stuck in the mess of life instead of moving forward. So thank you again!
