Woot! The kids are all at school. I've started marking of my list of things To Do today and I'm feeling pretty good about myself.


All in a day's work

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Yesterday was prety exciting. It was my first day home as a SAHM with the kids out on summer vacation and dad at work. We got lots of cleaning done, played some Monopoly Jr., and even got to watch the neighbor's cows walk and run through our yard. It was funny. My two older children were taking a load of trash outside and they dropped the trash and came running back into the house screaming "The cows are out!". All the cows were rounded up by my brother-in-law (running like an airplane) and the county sheriff. My kids and dogs all ran from window to window looking at the herd being chased and laughing at their uncle and barking at the cows (just the dogs were barking, lol). Anyway, it was a pretty neat ordeal, I just wish it had been a little cooler for them running around so much.

WTG Joe! You saved us from the man-eating cows!!!

Okay, so it's the first of the year and we're all making resolutions and looking at what we've done to ourselves over the holiday months (at least I am). I've decided not to wait until after my birthday this year. Instead, I chose to take advantage of a day at home with my children and start making better choices (again). I'm pleasantly surprised that I didn't go over on my calorie and fat intake yesterday. I did come up short on my fiber, iron, calcium, and water. Thanks to SP I know what I need to work on! Well, I've got to get my kids up and start making a healthy breakfast, we've got early appointments this morning.


Look Ma! No Hands (in the cookie jar)!

Oh my goodness! I'm really doing it! I'm down a total of 20 pounds now and am so proud of myself. I am enjoying my meals and just making the best choices I can when I do eat out. I don't think I've ever had this much success with weight loss. I've had a pretty stressful week at work and I know that I truly am a stress eater. I've let myself have a few sessions of just stress eating (had real tex-mex nachos for lunch yesterday), but I'm just trying to make sure that I eat better than I used to (had half order of nachos instead of full order!).

I'm so proud of myself! I've been doing so well. This week I had what could have been considered setbacks or moments of weakness, but I didn't count them as such. Friday I found out that my grandfather was in the hospital so I had taco bell on the way to see him (grilled stuft chicken burrito) and stopped by starbucks on the way to the kids afterwards (light raspberry mocha frapaccino). If anything I'd say these were successes. I only ate the burrito and I only ordered the smallest drink. Then on Saturday, I had a brisk 2 mile walk (it was totally stress related) and then stopped on the way to see my husband's grandparents and had JITB. I didn't eat the fries that came with my combo, just the sandwich. This really is progress for me.

    Way to go! We can't always control what we eat when we are in fast food restraunts, but we can limit them... I too have been doing better at going to BK and only getting a Jr. Whopper rather than a full sized Whopper... and I either skip the fries, or I go for a small... I'll even drink an unsweet tea before going to the Diet Pepsi...which the carbonation makes me feel so bloated!

Way to go and keep up the good work.
