Still the same...

Friday, February 04, 2011

My last blog post here was when my 2.5 year old was a 3 month old...not much has changed! Well, except for my weight and it sure hasn't decreased. So sad, and scary! I hope I'm not reading this another 3 years from now as an even unhealthier person. This weight loss thing can be so depressing...who knew? I still don't have the answers to the questions I had 3 years ago. I barely made it through January sticking to my workout schedule. Is it really that hard to get in 30 minutes of cardio everyday? Apparently, it is. I certainly failed in that arena. As far as eating's hit or miss, really. I think I do pretty decent but those numbers add up to 1200 really fast toward the end of the day. None of the expert tips seem to help, "eat some almonds, have some carrots, drink more water." It doesn't change the fact that at 4:30 while I'm waiting for my husband to come home and dinner to be cooked I am STARVING! I hate feeling like I can't do something, or shouldn't eat's miserable! Guess only time will tell...ugh.

In other news. I signed up for a 5k. I hate running. I'm not good at it. I have terrible form/no form. I'm not the graceful, poised runner you see jogging down the road. I'm the chick who looks like she hates running and might actually die... I know, it's mainly mental but I still hate it. Why am I doing it? Well, other than enjoying my own misery??? It's a 5k to benefit a great organization, ACT Today for Military Families. They offer financial support to families of children with disabilities which is obviously close to my heart since our son has autism. So, any fellow Sparkers out there that have any sage wisdom...I am all ears!!! Happy February!

    I must say that you made me laugh out loud at your comment of a chick who looks like she may actually "die" while running! I was a healthy girl in school and even healthier in college and even though I know it happened I still have my kids saying "good job mom!" when we climb a few stairs?? It's humiliating! We went on a hike out here in Okinawa and it was rough but I walk every morning so I knew I could manage but I guess the way I look tells my kids that I should be "dying" when I do anything physical! I have been trying to lose my baby weight and my baby is 6!! So don't hang your head because you are still having to work at something that in my opinion is totally unfair! I want to wake up and be healthy but lord knows that will never ever happen! Just know there are other mommas out there who don't look hot when they run but we are still doing it and kicking butt while we do it....regardless of the fact that my butt is jiggling!! :)
