Well, I am feeling a little bit better today and maybe I am getting over this whole sickness thing- who knows. But I am still taking it slow to be sure that my immune system is where it needs to be before I go full gusto and end up back at the same place. We will see how the day goes but it hasn't been that bad so far. I definitely could have used a nap in the middle of the day but it is what it is. I did some batch cooking this weekend and I made all of my son's breakfasts and lunches for the next 6 weeks- so that helps to minimize some of stress for a little while. I bought myself a bunch of the Birdseye steamers (which are low and calories and yummy and they were on sale for half price) so that make my dinner very easy when I get home. Tonight after my tutoring (at 6:15 when I get home) my goal is to eat healthy, make ahead my breakfast for a little while, and get some laundry done. If I can get in some kind of workout that would be great but I don't want to push it to much. One day at a time for now. I am down to 158.5- but I know a lot of that was water weight I lost so I doubt I will loose that much this week. I want to be under 155 by the end of the month and lose another 5 in March. Hoping to be under 150 by April 1- then I have two months to concentrate on that last 10 pounds. I have been using the sparks saving site to track our expenses this month and I am trying hard to focus on saving where I can and be ready for the move when it comes. My boyfriend applied to the fire department and we are hoping to hear good news from them in a month or so- the hiring process works in phases so we won't know if he passed the first phase till the end the month. But he could really use a break and we could really use the extra money for us to be better off- but I just really want him to be able to work in a field where he is happy and that will help reduce some of the stress at home for everyone. Well I am hoping to stay upbeat and positive for the rest of the day- heck maybe even the rest of week- wouldn't that be a change from the past. I am just going to keep putting one foot in front of the other until I get somewhere. I remember that his can be a long and slow process and I am sure that it will be longer and slower with all this other stuff that has been thrown at me. I know how this goes I have done it before I really want to take my time and focus this time and do it right and make sure that the weight stay off and I don't have to do this again. I appreciate all of the support I get from everyone on this site and that is why I keep coming back here. Please keep sending the notes, and comments and support I really appreciate it more then I am sure you know. The community here makes all the difference- and although I am swamped and somewhat unmotivated right now if you need anything from me in any way please just ask and I will try to give back to the community as much as you have given to me.
AND KEEP THE SPARK ALIVE!
