    8/31/2015 4:48:45 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    School is back in session. Life is starting. The Real Deal. The one that is 9 months of every year. I'm frankly in panic mode. I feel like I'm hanging off the back of the wagon..... for dear life. So. Since we are starting life again..the real deal, where I have no time to myself, I need to s... Read more

  • Frustration

    8/30/2015 4:46:55 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I'm frustrated and crabby. I don't feel well and it's not a good way to start the week. My throat is sore and my chest hurts- definitely coming down with something. However I did buy 2 gigantic fall mums at Costco and the are fabulous! My oldest did swim tryouts Saturday and she looked good. W... Read more

  • Stress and Depression

    8/28/2015 12:22:14 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I'm feeling very stressed about school starting and not having any time already and most of our activities have yet to even start. It doesn't help that I'm also feeling quite depressed about our air quality situation and the smoke as it starts to make you feel trapped after awhile. We are on day 9... Read more

  • Perfect Timing

    8/19/2015 11:39:28 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I've been having a mentally tough week this week. Struggling with the scale, struggling with exercise and not making the best food choices. So the timing of a NSV today was perfect! This morning I was looking for something to wear because I once again am behind on my laundry. I thought of this l... Read more

  • Some Weeks are Just Better Than Others

    8/18/2015 3:25:52 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I had a rockin' week last week, was working out and eating on goal. We went out of town to the cabin and I kinda figured this would slow some momentum but I was hoping I would weigh-in at least the same and that I could have maintained. But this was not meant to be as I was up 1.2 lbs from the wee... Read more

  • Gaining some momentum

    8/12/2015 6:14:34 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I feel good about the plan I set in place last week and my ability to put it into action this week. I'm re-establishing my morning workout routine that has been missing for well over a year. I haven't loved getting up in the morning this week but I have loved feeling accomplished before my kids ev... Read more

  • Every Single Thing Burns....

    8/11/2015 3:41:30 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Yes, siree, every single muscle is burning. Jillian Michaels is dang good at what she does and when I chose to do the 30 Day Shred Level 3 as my workout for the mornings this week I knew what I was getting into, generally, since I had religiously used her video to whip myself into shape before. Bu... Read more

  • Feelings in a Bottle

    8/10/2015 4:29:29 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I've done everything on my goal list so far today and it feels darn good. I wish I could put the feelings in a bottle and open it when I need a pick me up or a reminder of why I have these goals in the first place. Why when this feels so good do I fall off the wagon so easily? 52 June 1 Ch... Read more

  • Didn't Earn it This Week

    8/7/2015 4:27:16 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Well, the week is over. I started off Monday at 167.3 and clocked in on Friday at 170.2. What a crummy week. But, the honest truth is I didn't really do anything to EARN a loss this week. However, I made a lot of choices that earned me a gain of 3 lbs. Not enough water, eating fast food (and no... Read more

  • Sometimes Your Just Over It

    8/4/2015 9:02:44 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Sometimes your just over it. And today is it. I weighed in at 168.8 last week and then my Monday weight check was 167.3 after working outdoors in the hot weather and I attributed the loss to dehydration because I'd not had enough water. But to weigh in again today at 170.1 made me want to scream ... Read more
