Just got back from the beach and I had a good time. It was relaxing, something I don't get to much of! I think I did pretty good with my eating and I did get some walking in on the beach and boardwalk. It's hard sometimes because my husband acts like he's allergic to any kind of exercise and healthy foods LOL! So Monday I'm getting back on track. I did pretty good last month and I'm going to keep going. My mom got me a pretty charm bracelet and for every 10 pounds that I lose I am going to get a new charm! Can't wait!
I know that the one thing I struggle with is emotional eating. Things are not very good in my household and there can be a lot of tension. I need to find something to do with myself in those situations. I can't always just get out of the house because of my son. Speaking of my son, I can't believe that he's starting preschool this week! My Baby turns 4 this month! For extra money I babysit so including my son I have 4 boys all in different schools and going on different days . Have to make myself a schedule so I know who is going where when! Plus I'm my grandmother's caregiver so I have to add in her appointments too!
I really need to make some changes in my life. I feel like I've lost myself somewhere. I'm just so unhappy. I've let everyone else dictate what I'm doing, where I'm going and what I'm feeling. I think I need some time alone with God to figure myself out.
~~September goals ~~
~~ Exercise daily
~~ Stay within my calorie goals
~~ Plan weekly menus
~~ Daily First Place for Health bible study

I will do this

    Sounds like a good plan. Making a schedule should definitely help. Be sure to include a time to do things that YOU LOVE to do as well. That will help you be able to deal with whatever is going on. Are you able to tune out what's bothering you or is it something that's in your face if your at home nagging you?? If you are able to tune it out, I'd suggest finding some way to listen to music and do something else with your hands to keep you occupied. :) Also remember that unless you are directly involved with the family drama, stay out of it!! Don't let them drag you into the middle of it either. That's easier said than done I know!! (My in-laws live less than 100 ft way, and there is always drama.)

    Sounds like you have a good plan for Sept. I am older and on SS so I only shop for food once a month what I do is make out a menu for the entire month. Of course making some of those meals changeable. Then make a shopping list for the menu and buy ONLY what is needed and NOT what I think I might want. It works for me and of course it is so true NEVER goes shopping on a empty stomach. Really ---------- I have blow that a time or two LoL.

    Good luck such remember you are so worth it and together all of us here on Spark will do it and get healthier in the process. With God on our side how can we not do good.
