Here is how it happened.... <BR> <BR> Back at the begining of the month we moved, which was a great thing for my family but that meant life being flipped upside down as we pack, move, unpack, get kids in new schoo... Fri, 15 Mar 2013 00:29:48 EST Woopies Wednesday Weigh-in! So I said it before (along with everyone else on this site!) and I say it again! Diet alone will not get me to my goal and I got to get off but more than once or twice a week and exercise as well as stay on top of tracking the food I put in my mouth! <BR> <BR> This week proved my point! <em>2</em> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> While I had thought I had been doing well on the foods I had been eaten and only slacking on the exe... Wed, 13 Feb 2013 16:58:57 EST Time to step up or shut up! <img src=""> <BR> <BR> So since the first of the year I have been talking about how this year is going to be different! <BR> <BR> This was going to be the time I got healthy, I lost weight and I got a grip on the stress from the trauma that happened with my kids back last Mother's day (the day my world came crashing down! The day we caught my 16 (now 17) year old son sexual abusing my 7 (now 8) year old daughter! After that my life s... Tue, 12 Feb 2013 08:35:37 EST Hiding behind pain..... I am having a really rough day...... <BR> <BR> I am having a lot of abdominal pain. <em>46</em> And, am seriously stressed out! <em>39</em> I just it is my turn to hit my slump! I do not want to get up and work out but I know I need to but know and doing are two different things. <BR> <BR> I have a lot of blood in my urine which most like means another kidney stone but I can not hide behind the pain! I know this but it is so hard, I want to cure in a ball and sleep. I know th... Tue, 22 Jan 2013 18:29:08 EST Owned by the 8 Year Old.... So time for a week 3 in review....... <BR> <BR> First of all I got a new X-Box Kinect Game this week Dance Central 2 - The goal of this game was to not only get off the couch and boggie down but to do it with my kids. So the game came in Friday - Sat hubby and I sat down with the kids (15 year old son Matt and 8 year old daughter Katie) and let the dance battles in the living-room begin. <BR> <BR> It was a ton of fun but I got owned by the 8 year old! She could move in ways I could not dr... Mon, 21 Jan 2013 15:01:07 EST Biggest Loser Work-Out ..... So I got my biggest loser work-out and was all fired up to do it! Jumped on got everything set up for my Profile and started my Work-out! Six minutes into it I felt like I was going to die! My hats off to the biggest loser people who make that stuff look EASY! <BR> <BR> I can see I am going to have to work up to being a "loser" ROFL. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> Thu, 10 Jan 2013 14:54:10 EST 1st Weigh-In ...... Done! Well the scary part is behind me now! I can official say I have made it through my first week (though in truth I started mid-way though the week last week) and I did my first weigh-in today! I lost 1.5 lbs which I guess is not too bad since I only started on Wed. Jan 2nd, 2013 and I know the stuff does not happen over night. At least it did not go up right! <BR> <BR> I will work harder this week and maybe next Monday I can get the scales to say that I lost 2 - 3 lbs (which at my weigh, fr... Mon, 7 Jan 2013 12:14:03 EST First weigh-in coming up! Tomorrow (Monday Jan 7th, 2013) is my first weigh-in for the new year and I have to say I am nervous as can be. I know results do not happen over night but I am worried that the scale is going to go backwards or something. You know how it goes when you work so hard at something, you want to feel like all of your hard work was not for nothing. <BR> <BR> I may be nervous but either way I know this has been a great week and I plan to keep up the hard work. The biggest thing I need to work o... Sun, 6 Jan 2013 16:25:52 EST
