OK so the month of January was FANTASTIC! I lost 17lbs. However February isn't starting off too good. My work schedule has been crazy and I haven't been able to log into spark..and without spark I don't do as well! I need to track my food everyday! Work has been so crazy that I haven't been really following my plan(still not eating bad) and haven't been able to eat every 3 hours as scheduled. My birthday is in exactly 2 weeks and I want to hit the 20lb mark by then but I am afraid it may not happen if this keeps up! I am only making it to the gym on Sundays as it is my only day off and during the week I am getting home too late to go, and in the morning before work i have all 3 kids to get ready and off to school so I can't go then either. I am barely seeing my husband and my kids. It is taking a toll. I need to take time and make sure I can get on here and read some motivational stories and track my food everyday. And I want to thank all of my spark friends for keeping me motivated and supporting me on my journey..I couldn't do it without you!

    I hear you barking!!!! I have been through and continue to go through the same struggles with working crazy hours and not taking care of me. I have found that I NEED to carry my lunch box with me. I fill with with foods that I can eat during the day that are not going to tip the scale. I also carry water with me. I never know when I am going to be in my car for hours on end. This way I am not tempted to stop somewhere and eat poorly. I have also found that I need to take 20 minutes here and there to get in some exercise. I noticed on your page you do a lot of strength training - reps. Do your squats, crunches etc in your 20 minutes of down time. I will also work and eat lunch (I know cardinal sin) but then use my lunch break to go for a walk. I figure it is better than nothing right. To cold to go out (yes that would be me right now), run the stairs in the office building instead of going for the walk. I know with a little creativity you can do it!!!!!

    emoticon and emoticon on your weight loss for January! It is still early in February and a few lbs in a month is better than zero and better than gaining. Do you have a smart phone? I know I use mine on the go to input my food and any fitness. You can track water as well.

Missed you around here lately! Take a day and do something fun and relaxing for you!!!

    17 pounds in January, that so AWESOME!! emoticon emoticon

Marriage, Kids, Work. . . . .that's enough to make any of us insane but then when we throw really taking care of ourselves in the mix it seems almost impossible!! Just take it one day at a time and you will succeed. I haven't been able to workout lately for health reasons but I have discovered that what I put into my mouth is just as important as running or ST. If all you can do is concentrate on your food, then give that 200%. Focus on what you can control right now and don't make yourself crazy.
