I think this extra hour is a great gift! I'm using it to Revive, Regroup, Repair!! 2011 hasn't just been a bad year...it's probably 'the worst' 365 days I've ever had. But, I'm dealing with it and moving on!
This hour is for ME. ONLY ME. My darn dog, kids and husband (all sleeping except for the dog) are NOT my priority for ONE FULL HOUR! I put SP and my SP friends at the top with me.
I have gained more weight. 20lbs on top of the %$@@& lbs. i was trying to lose Lost confidence and also lost some interest in socializing (because I can't find ~fun~ clothing that fits! I like to stay current and look good. I'm too embarrassed to go out with my fit/healthy looking girls. They don't care-but I DO!) I'm trying to see this as a mild set-back & not something that will become the norm. I will overcome this...I am a VERY strong person and extremely resilient.
I worked alot and this past year- more than I wanted to. I had my rock, my source of strength (grandma) to take care of on top of work, running kids around and holding down the fort at home all alone (husband travels CONSTANTLY). It was a hospice situation and she passed in October -so very devastating. I really/truly did not have ANY time to step foot into a gym or even take a walk through the neighborhood (although I desperately wanted to and knew what would happen if I didn't). Just pathetic! But I know what I need to do now . It's that EXECUTION part that gets me every single time though! I just keep repeating my mantra: Revive, Regroup, Repair!
I am SOOOO excited to re-connect with my SP friends. I wasn't sure if they would still be here. But they are and they continue to inspire me and support me (just what i need!) THANK YOU - you know who you are!
I'm going to make myself another cup of coffee, a healthy breakfast and then throw my sneakers on and talk a walk. Baby steps....one step at a time...
I'M GOING TO DO THIS!!

I'm shaken up and just needed to share this with you.
My 10 yr old son and his best friend/neighbor LOVE to take a bike ride after school each day. This past Monday, they did not get to meet up because we had alot going on. His friend still went riding (alone). We got home late and neighbors told us the police had been at our house. First thing Tuesday morning, I got a call from the friend's Mom. An abduction attempt was made on her son! Had we been home, my son would've been involved in this (or maybe it wouldn't have happened at all...power in #'s?) It was shocking, devastating, but fortunately, the boy escaped and is ok. This literally took place on my cul de sac. The poor boy tried coming to our house for safety but we weren't home (i still feel TERRIBLE about that) The police have pictures of the car AND the alleged abductor and they are coming today to see if my son recognizes either. The kid is a nervous wreck about this.
We live in an beautiful community. The homes are roughly 4,000sq ft and we all have 1-4 acres of land. It is spacious and lush. Low crime rate, excellent schools, ENORMOUS taxes :( Overall, this is a prime location to raise a family. Some creep also thought it was a prime location to stalk our children. He has NO IDEA how tight this community is....and what we are willing to do to keep our children safe. HOW DARE THIS MAN attempt something like this here!
This is a HUGE wake-up call to all that live in this "wally world" (as I call it). Good/Bad is EVERYWHERE! We are not exempt.
Thank the Lord that this wonderful little boy is alright. Thank God my child is safe and sound too. Unfortunately, we've changed the rules about bike riding. But there is plenty for the kids to do in our safe, enclosed backyards.
Hug your children a little longer and tighter....spend extra time with them.....make sure they know how special they are! I certainly am.

This has more to do with my mental stability :) than it does with weightloss this week!
LOTS of family 'stuff' going on and it all comes to a head starting tomorrow! I don't think I'll have time to log-in and track until Monday. I've decided to start today with a SMILE. Believe me, when I looked into the mirror this morning, I saw an exhausted, anxious, worn out person - but smiled anyway...heard that helps ;) I guess it has. I made sure I ate breakfast and tracked it (1/3 of a sesame bagel toasted w/a laughing cow wedge and of course, coffee x2!) I have been SO careless with eating lately (skipping meals then snacking on the wrong stuff). Was extra pleasant getting the kids out the door and did not argue or yell at anyone. So far, so good. I am allowing myself a glass of red wine Fri/Sat night. I will work it into my calorie range. I'm calling it my reward for keeping a smile on my face during all of this family craziness.
Wish me luck! Be back on Monday!
