April's Gone and On to May

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Wow! I can't believe we're in the fifth month of the year. Oh my! Things have been better. Well we're still struggling financially and I'm at my highest weight ever but I'm working on my attitude about it all. I have found that it takes practice to be thankful and appreciate life more. Especially when I've been reading about Silas, the little boy from my hometown with terminal cancer. Its been quite miraculous how wonderful the community has been for him, coming together. The doctor said he had days to live and he's still with us and its been two weeks longer than his parents expected. We've all been thankful, especially his parents who have been enjoying every single minute with him.

I had snagged a cool weekend job that took weeks to speak to management about scheduling events for me. Unfortunately this company can't seem to get its act together. So I'm not working but Joey and I are getting along pretty well together. I'm setting aside activities for us to do together such as time at the park and going out for yogurt. He's eating solid foods so much better now so I'm not as stressed to find soft foods for him. I'm thinking of starting a youtube vlog of us and of him for our families to enjoy.

As for May. I would love to lose weight but I don't know how to set a realistic goal with my mommy schedule. I am not making good decisions and I should probably start there. Making better food choices. Its pretty obvious that I need some structure but I'm not sure how willing I am to commit to something which is the problem. I guess being able to work on my emotional health is a start even though I am still not quite able to figure out how to tend to the physical.

    I think you have to be emotionally and mentally there before you can start making that decision to change and make healthier choices. Instead of focusing on a diet, can you focus on just making better choices here and there and finding subs?

    I think the video is a great idea! I went home to Lousiana and my dad had videos when my neice and nephew were little, they were so cute!

    I went to the park today and ate my lunch while I was in town. There was a mom with a baby and a toddler with her parents. I was fun to watch the grandparents with their grandchildren. I was very jealous!! LOL.

    Losing weight is definitely far more mental than it is physical. You need to be in the right head space to get started and stay committed. It sounds to me like you are working toward getting into the right head space and that is definitely the first step. Don't try to jump right into all the physical activity and nutrition without making your head right first or it won't stick for long.

    What's helped me are in home DVDs like Walk Away the Pounds with Leslie Sansone. It's low impact and easy to get into. I hope you find a routine that fits your schedule.
