Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

Friday, October 19, 2012

This is a picture of my parents and me on my wedding day back in June, 2011. Even though my parents have been divorced since before I was two years old I am very close with both of them.

Simple Update

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Well, it's been a few days since I have written a blog and this is something I want to try and do daily to help me have a better record of what I am doing. I can stay more accountable when I have something to look at to show how things have been going for me.

Still plugging away at school work. Wrote my first test today and now that I have that out of the way I feel better. Tests always come with a bit extra stress that makes other things not so enjoyable. Once I was finished writing it it felt like an actual weight was lifted off my shoulders and I can now think about doing other things! Like other school work! ha ha!

I have been really sore and achy these past couple days. Cramping in my stomach and pains in my back. The end of November (that's when my c-section is scheduled) can not come soon enough!

Despite how much pregnancy has been uncomfortable for me, this one and my first one, I am still considering having one more baby. My parents are pushing for me to be done after this baby. They are worried about my health, the whole diabetes thing, and don't want me to push myself too far with having too many kids. I see what they are saying but at the same time I keep trying to say to them that it's what I want and why should I have to give up what I want in life because of a health condition that I most certainly did not want? It's still something I have to think about but I'm not really spending much time thinking about it now because another potential baby is still a couple years away.

Been slowly picking away at getting my house work together and trying to get my house in order. I know I will feel much better once I am working at maintaining and not maintaining as well as cleaning.


This morning there were all kinds of things on my mind that I was going to write about but because I was still studying for a test I didn't want to take the time to write out a blog. Sitting here now those things just aren't coming to mind. Maybe they will come back to me tomorrow!

    Every time I sit down to write out a blog I go blank. That's why I have so few. I do like your 30 pics in 30 days idea. Maybe I'll give that a whirl in November?
Have a great day ! emoticon

Needing Motivation

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

I am sitting at a point in life where it is so easy to want to lose focus on my main goal. It's not just about it being easier to lose focus, it's an actual want to not really care all that much.

Full-time student, though I am completing my studies for this year online there is still a massive work load that comes with being a student. I am a full-time stay-at-home mom of a little man who is almost three! The energy he contains would do wonders for me if only I could bottle it and take some when I am feeling a bit drained. 33 weeks pregnant with baby number two! That in itself is exhausting and it's getting to be a very uncomfortable thing.

I actually want to just give up, go to sleep for the next six weeks, and wake up in time to have my baby! Needless to say that's not how things work!

I'm not currently on a weight loss mission, though I will be come the new year (gaining far too much weight and I don't seem to be able to stop it lately). Right now I am just trying to make small, healthy changes for myself and my baby. I have been trying to make these changes all along during my pregnancy but haven't been having a lot of luck. I am hoping that entering my food every day will help show me the areas I need to work on the most. So far I am learning that I am not eating enough at breakfast and snacking WAY too much throughout the day.

Getting some exercise in would definitely help though I have to give myself a pep talk that usually lasts for a few hours before I can get myself out the door for a ten minute walk. I have no energy and am having serious issues with that. it's so much easier to just sit back on the coach than to actually get up and do something. Not to mention if I really feel desperate for an excuse to do nothing I just pick up a text book and say that I have to work on school work, which is always true, but I tend to use it more for an excuse than I should be.

Right now I am lacking in motivation in a bad way. My hubby is very emotionally supportive but not physically supportive, which is better than nothing, but sometimes what I really need is someone to get up and say "Let's go for a walk," to make me do it. And my poor, over-excited, highly energized puppy is more of a discouragement than an encouragement because he's not trained to walk properly yet and tends to pull a lot for the entire walk. It gets frustrating fast. He needs a lot of training and I look for excuses to not take him out like he needs me too.

I really just need a good, HARD kick in the rear end to make me smarten up and do what needs to be done for my health and for my baby's health!

    Are you getting in lots of good protein and plenty of sleep along with your water? It's amazing what those 3 things can do for a pregnant mom!

    Glad you found some motivation to take the pup for a walk! One small step in the right direction. Meanwhile, you have way too much stress in your life right now. Since the hubs is supportive, have you told him how much it would help you if he suggested a walk? When I ask DH for some help in that department, he seems happy to be asked. I think it has to do with his need to "fix" things in people's lives.

    Well, I can say that after writing this I just got up and took my dog for a walk! It wasn't a long walk and it was at a slow pace but we went and I am happy I did!
