I seem to have lost my mojo somewhere along my journey. When I started my last job, I worked very, very long hours and just lost my motivation completely. I put back on all of the weight that I lost plus an extra 15 pounds. I am officially at my highest weight ever! I am still shocked by that, but I need to acknowledge this is writing for it to actually hit home. <BR> <BR> I have moved on to a MUCH better job that is a lot closer to my home. I have the opportunities to get out and be more a... Tue, 1 Oct 2013 16:23:09 EST Slip Sliding Away That is my theme song for the past two weeks. I finally got a job! Yay me! <em>410</em> <BR> <BR> But I have been to and from several interviews and appointments to get everything finalized. That means a lot of driving and a lot of being on the go. I have also had to go to 3 different orientations to get my daughter started at the middle school this year. <BR> <BR> She has decided to join the field hockey team this year. Yay her! <em>410</em> so I have also had to do a lot of get her s... Fri, 31 Aug 2012 14:50:26 EST You will NOT give up! So last night, I was waiting for my hubby to get home from work so I could leave for my meeting. I knew I gained weight and I didn't want to deal with that on top of all the other stress that I have been dealing with in the last few weeks. I was dragging around the house and complaining that I really didn't want to go because I knew I didn't lose weight. My hubby grabbed me, put his face right in front of mine and said "You are going! You will not quit! You will not give up!" then gave me a h... Fri, 20 Jul 2012 09:42:30 EST Psyching myself out I completed the Spark People Couch to 5K Walking Program a week ago today with a walk of 3.27 miles. I got a tremendous high and sense of accomplishment to be able to successfully complete something that I started and quit so many times before. Well when I finished that program, I left that team and joined the Official 5K Your Way Walk/Jog Program. I am having trouble getting started on it. I keep meaning to, then I find an excuse not to. I have really been thinking about it and I am really ... Sat, 14 Jul 2012 17:44:50 EST Extreme Meltdown!! Hypersensitive sense of taste + Crest Toothpaste with Scope = MASSIVE MAJOR MELTDOWN. <BR> <BR> <em>28</em> <em>28</em> <em>28</em> <em>28</em> <em>28</em> <BR> <BR> That is the lesson that we learned last night. Our son, who is autistic, has a seriously hypersensitive sense of taste. We were well aware of that. It is one of the many reasons that he will eat a very small number of foods. Well, somehow last night he ended up with our toothpaste on his toothbrush instead of his toothpa... Fri, 22 Jun 2012 19:09:36 EST Hello again from BoSoxGyrl33 Greetings and Salutations! <BR> <BR> I have returned! <BR> <BR> As many of you know I was formerly known as BoSoxGyrl33. We were living in Missouri and had to make a move to New Hampshire in December of 2011. We had to make the move faster then we planned (by 6 months) because of a very toxic family situation. I didn't realize at the time how much I was allowing to family issues affect my decisions. I personally went through a lot of changes during and after the move and not all of them we...
