What to do

Saturday, August 07, 2010

So my mother in law just called me and told me how much she loved me and how proud she is of us. It made me cry so much, now I feel sick to my stomach. Dont feel like doing anything.

Maybe I should take the kids for a walk now, instead of later. Listen to music. I dont know. I just wanna sleep, cry, cry and sleep.

  walk now... deff. breathe, pray (if u do that) if not just hope and walk. we cant fix or control everything. only take life minute by minute. im sorry for your situation, its so painful to watch someone be sick. and sometimes life just doesnt make much sense. but u have to take care of u if your going to be taking extra care of your hubby and kids through this. so walk, cry if u need to, and walk some more.

thats me praying for ur family

Mother in law hospitalized..............

Saturday, August 07, 2010

Sorry, I just have to vent. My mother in law was hospitalized today. She has fluids around her heart and the doctors dont know why or how. Her heart is pumping fine, just causing her pain. Blood pressure is a little higher than normal, but that is expected from this. She is a bit overweight, but fairly healthy. I dont understand why this is happening to her! My hubby is doing anything and everything to stay busy and try to not think about it but he hasnt eaten all day....is super stressed out. His brother is not doing any better. They both just want to cry but wont let anyone see it. I dont know what to do for them! Their worst fears are quickly becoming reality.... emoticon

Its Lifestyle...

Friday, August 06, 2010

As I have been trying to help my husbands side of the family lose weight and get healthy as I started 2 years ago they are always asking me how I do it, why I did it and how i keep it up.

I am always thinking about healthy eating and habits. Since we recently moved, I rarely drive anymore. Just put my kids in their Radio Flyer wagon and we are off!!!

It is a lifestyle change. Its a choice I make everyday. I can choose to be lazy and do nothing and eat junk, or choose to be active and play with the kids and eat healthy foods. Its not a diet. I dont tell myself I CANT have anything. I just have to increase my activity if I decide to give into a craving.

I have my sister in law walking with us every few days, as she is very new to exercise. We slowly increase the length of our walks. She is doing great. I dont make her talk about her goals or weight, unless she wants to. I just want to get her moving!! Hopefully she will join Sparkpeople and make the change!

Good Luck

xoxo Kristen

    Thanks. It has been hard. We have a large family, and most of the family is large.. LOL Lots of events and buffet style dinner options. It is very challenging, but rewarding when I get on the scale and see the numbers drop!!
