I'm up early this dreary Monday,
As you know I'm not a daily blogger, but lately I've been inspired by a few blogs I've read. Maybe its time to clear my head.
So here I go.
My last blog was titled very depressed, I'll try not to have that again, I'll wait until the end of this blog to see what this should be titled.
Did you notice I've gained the last 3 month in a row? I layed in bed on Sunday and tried to figure out what my issues are, I'm stumped, I know my husband has been home a bit more, and my DD needs me so little now that she driving and works a job. I think I'm up about 10 pounds.
Even exercise isn't as appealing as it used to be, and if you know me, I love my aerobic classes. I lived to log my minutes onto spark for years.
So here I sit @ 3:30 in the morning wondering where the heck my mogo for dieting went. Feeling a bit guilty about the food I ate right before bedtime.
I even feel fatter, my arms and legs and chest, my belly still feels good. Thanks to my weeklly abs class.
Theres are reasons to drop a few pounds in my life too right now too. 25th class reunion this summer. Summer in general. and were FORSURE going on vacation in Jan/Feb of 2010.
So there ya go! That's me in a nutshell. I still don't have a title for my page though.
Nevemind... I just got it off a coupon! LOL!
Thanks for listening! Maybe I'll try it again tomorrow with a what I'm going to do about it blog!

I know exactly what you mean Barbie. I seem to have a good run going, and then suddenly, I'm distracted by work and family. I do end up getting in cardio minutes, but it just seems as if I'm going through the motions, and the weight just doesn't come off.
If I had an answer for you, I would certainly let you in on the secret. But, I'm still trying to figure that one out for myself. But, just know, we're all here for you whether you gain some or lose some. We're all in the same boat!

It is hard to keep this up. It's so much easier to fall back into our old habits. The weather lately has not exactly been very helpful and could be contributing to your emotions.
If we were closer I would happily be an exercise buddy with you. Is there someone near you that you can walk or workout with? Might help you stay on track, and doing it with a friend is always wonderful.
You are such a warm and bubbly person and so motivating to so many of us, but I know you've been struggling. Remember that you're not alone. There is at least one other person right there with you!!!
Big old hugs to you!!

Oooooo, Barbie, can I join you in the land of 'what the h**l went wrong? I am so in the same place right now. I woke up this morning with a renewed sense of purpose. Of course, I wake up every morning with a renewed sense of purpose - LOL. I just need to stop overthinking the whole darned thing and 'do it'.
For sure, Lacy growing up and needing less of your time is one reason. It's hard when those girls start doing things on their own. I'm not sure I've adjusted yet and my daughter is 28! Also, hubby being around more is a factor. We always eat 'worse' things when we're just hanging out. I don't consciously think of it as self-destructive, but I suppose it is.
I LOVE the title for your blog! You know, when you're a sunny person, like yourself, and things get a little cloudy, people get shaken a little - it's different from their norm. Lots of pressure, huh? But don't you worry about anybody but yourself. You'll figure this out (at least for a while). I believe that if you and I can even go a LITTLE bit in the weight loss direction it will motivate us to do more. At least, that has been my history. I'm with you on this girlfriend and looking forward to your next blog. I've decided to take your suggestion that I blog once a week to heart - you do it, too!
Love you - Debbie
