Good morning, I made it back home safely last night. I had such a wonderful time and everything and everyone was just beautiful. I was able to spend time with my grandmother and she's looking amazing. We had her singing and dancing and it was such a joy to see. The Island of St. Vincent has certainly come a long way and gets better and better every times I visit.

My mother had an awesome time at her birthday celebrations. One night she invited some of her closest friends to the house. On her actual birthday the family took her out to dinner to another island near by.

The trip to and from was long, but totally hassle free. There were lines after lines after lines. As I get older, time just goes by soooo much quicker. Traveling with my sister was fun & relaxing.

While I was there I saw the light and it's time. I have been waiting on the click and I finally received it. Health is more important to me than my body shows. I don't like being fat and know it's time before my body really starts to break down.

I am reaching another birthday and just getting older. My body isn't getting any younger and I need to treat it much better. I need to stop talking about it and just do it. I know what I need to do and I have done it before.

One day at a time!

I am heading to NY to them take a flight to St Vincent in the morning. My sister and I are going to celebrate my mother's birthday with her and the family. I can't wait to get there, but I am so going to miss my babies. Hubby is staying back to take care of them.

I wanted to stop in earlier, but I would have been late for work. I slept like a baby last night and doesn't realize how tired I was. I slept from 5p to 5a with 1 or 2 interruptions. The good part with sleeping is that I couldn't snack.

Work yesterday went by extremely quickly and I didn't realize how busy it was until my time was over. I am still loving my morning hours with going in early and getting home early afternoon. Now I see why people faught over this shift.

Still no exercise yesterday, but haven't given up hope. I have also been working on increasing my water intake, which we all know is important.

Off to work I go!

I have about 3 minutes before I have to leave, but wanted to stop in to say hello. Last night my baby girl had a soccer game and won 4-1. She's having fun and always does well when she gets out of her head and doesn't think as hard. She is a perfectionist and always wants to do well.

I still haven't gotten in my workout and now it has to be by choice. I need to fight through my tiredness and just get my butt moving again. I am working on my nutrition for when I get back exercising it makes a difference. We all know that exercise is nothing if your not eating well.

My knee actually stopped hurting, but that's surely a reminder that I need to lose this weight again. 3 times a charm! I spotted my weight twice and I pray that the 3rd time, I am able to maintain.

Yesterday I was extremely exhausted and was fighting to keep my eyes open from the second my alarm clock went off. I was finally able to start settling down at around 6:45p when my daughter left for dance practice. Why was I still awake when she returned at 9:15? Rediculously right! I finally feel asleep at around 10:30p and now feeling better this morning.

I haven't been exercising as I had planned and don't have a good excuse as to why. I just need to start and add you know I have been struggling.

I hate coming on to say that I am still having problems getting my nutrition together. My weight is about the same as it was last month. I just need it going downwards, but need to focus more. A lot more!

Off to work I go!

I'm so tired today. Work went fast atleast. Last night Gavin decided he couldn't sleep. We went upstairs about 10pm picked up a bit in his room and then did our routine and went to bed. However he didn't fall asleep until after midnight. I got up at 630am and am so ready to go to bed now lol

Got in a nice short walk today at lunch. I wanted to rain but never did. It was spitting and I thought I better get back to work before I get stuck out here or drenched. Other then that all I have done today was clean and relax. Tomorrow I am off and have plans to run around to get things for Anna's graduation party and more of her invitations because we ran out. I pick those up as early as 10 am tomorrow.

Well I'll be back tomorrow. Night! Hope all is well!!

Great job my friend!! Super job this morning. I just laid in bed listening to my hubby snore. I should have gotten up but didn't. It is my day off work today. I need to hurry and get in the shower to get ready for church and to wake Anna up to go with me. Father Jimmy is going to do a mass for all the graduating seniors this year and I want her to go. I miss my baby girl. My teenage girl is hard to predict and isn't as lovable as my younger once was. LOL

I weighed in yesterday and today (LOL) at 148.6. As bummed as that number made me feel it is just that a number. I have walked more then I ever have at lunch and I have incorporated Jessica Smith videos which I was not doing. So I say that is a win for me. I am also more cautious of what I eat......I still eat those darn cookies though LOL

Here's to a better 20 weeks!!! A more focused and ok with my ups and downs. As long as I never quit!! I will keep pushing forward. Talk to you later!! Gotta get a shower so I can wake Anna up to get ready by 11. Ttyl

I set my alarm clock an hour earlier than usual to stay getting in a morning workout. I promised myself just 20 minutes and I accomplished just that. I am starting slowly and will add onto my time to hopefully build consistency. I had to hot snooze a couple times, but I am awake and need to now get ready for work.

Work has been doing amazingly well and hubby just got a job offer. He's extremely excited and I am peeps of him. He is sooooo miserable arty his current job. I told him, if he isn't happy he needs to look for something new. So he does just that!

Happy Saturday to you!

Didn't get a workout Wednesday like I was planning. The day just got away from me. I did however get in a nice 1.83 mile in yesterday at my lunch in 30 min then after work before getting Gavin from my mom and dad I got in 30-Minute Cardio Ball Blast. I really enjoyed this video too. Today I got in another good walk at lunch. I walked 1.71 miles in 28 min. I haven't gotten another workout in yet. Planning to though. Today is 30-Minute Strength Training from Jessica Smith.

I checked my weight and it was probably a bad thing but it was up but I was doing really well with keeping my eating in check. I just don't get it. This is another reason I usually stop working out because I don't want to gain weight I want to lose weight. But this time no matter what I am going to keep pushing through. Even if I have to post a weight gain tomorrow.

Gotta run and tidy up the house again. I think this is an every day thing LOL I have 2 weeks from today and my baby girl will be graduating high school. I'm sad I really miss the younger her. Her party will be two weeks tomorrow. I the things I have to do yet. I'm stressing and it could be stress weight too. I need to find a happy middle ground. LOL Well I'm off here for the night. Talk to you later!!

Today is my day off and I have plans to pick up the toy room and finish the laundry. Before playing outside I need to convince Gavin to help me clean up his toys from the foyer. I can focus more on being outside when I know I don't have to much cleaning to do inside. I hope the rain holds off til later today. I plan to go out and have Gavin ride his bike and I can walk at a faster pace. We will see.....I also need to do my Day 4 video. I am a few days behind because of working late. I just push it off til the last thing and by then it is 10pm and bed time. I did get a walk at lunch time both days though so not all a loss.

Here's to a great day!!!

Day 3 done!! Yesterday I did 20-Minute Belly Fat Blasting Cardio + 45 min of mowing with a push mower. Today I got in 30-Minute Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt Jessica Smith video and took a couple leisure walks at the camp ground today.

Today we had a nice day. Phil made me eggs and bacon for breakfast and then about 3 pm we headed out to Atwood Camp ground for a Mother's Day cook out. I got my workout in before heading out because I knew I wouldn't get it in after. I am finally heading in the right direction!!! My mom and dad bought me a flower bush for Mother's Day and I bought mom a planter of flowers that are suppose to attract butterflies and an outdoor wood wishing well for the planter. She was so happy to see it. She told me she went over yesterday after dinner to pick on up but they were out. I laughed and told her I bought the last one at 330pm yesterday. It made me happy to see I picked the right thing for her. Well I'm going to tidy up a bit before heading up to bed. Talk to you later!!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Even though it's slow I'm happy to say I am feeling really good about where I'm heading. I have been consistent with my walks and I'm trying my best with eating better foods. I am adding a Jessica Smith workout (#springahead ) with my walks since I have only been walking and I want to workout more. So I started yesterday. Yesterday was my day 1 and I did 30-Minute Total Body Sculpt + 20 Minutes of walking and lunch and then Gavin and I went for a leisurely walk (his pase) for an hr. I still need to get in my video tonight but I may use my mowing as my walk if it starts raining soon. I just wanted to stop in to see how you were doing.

We can do this D!! I know it's hard and I often wander why it is so hard to lose the weight and sooooooo easy to gain it. Wish I didn't like to be lazy and eat a lot LOL It would be so much easier LOL Well I'm off to clean up from mowing and I need to run over to Buehler's for mom's Mother's Day gift then hope for a small walk. Talk you soon.

Happy Mother's Day if I don't talk to you tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

I finally gave my dad his car back. We bought a 2005 Vibe recently and boy was he excited to have it back. Just in time too. With the weather change he does a lot more and my parents will need 2 cars again. I am happy that they have both their vehicles now.

How are things going with you? I have been trying to eat better. I wish I had a nutritionist as a friend LOL they could help me plan my grocery list LOL Speaking of...... I need to go to the grocery store again to pick up more fruit and veggies. Finding out Gavin likes most fruit and more and more veggies. Going to try to add spinach to his salads to see if he will notice or not. He likes plain lettuce but it doesn't have much nutrition. Better then nothing though I suppose. Now to get my butt off the chair/sofa and workout. I walk on my lunch hour M, T, Th, and F. But I don't seem to get anything else. Since it's the beginning of May I'm going to give myself a new start. So far I have walked Monday but missed yesterday.

Have a good day!! I'll check back later. I need to clean up the house a bit and the rest of the laundry. Also planning to get Anna's centerpieces for her graduation party done today. I found the hot glue gun and glue sticks. Then I'll have most of the pop and water, the centerpieces, tablecloths for the round tables and long tables, big plates, desert plates, napkins, silverware, and balloons. I still need to find out how much it is to rent a helium tank and ribbon and weights for the outter walls balloon décor. Next will be snacks and the week of will be the rest of the food. We are having a taco bar, rigatoni w/and w/out meat, mild/hot and bbq wings, bbq chick legs, salad, green beans, baked beans, cheesy potatoes, fruit, chips/pretzels, cupcakes, and cake, and outside will be a fire and smore set up. Now that I wrote it all I feel I am behind again. I will be thankful when this is over. Anna's last day is 5/24. Gavin will be done on 5/17. Then it will be summer here.

Talk to you later.

Hey there D. Today is my day off and I'm just taking a mid day break before heading to get Anna from school. She has some big art projects coming home today so she isn't going to walk home. It is also a bit colder today then the last few days.

Don't beat yourself up. I am 42 and still trying. I have maintained up/down a bit here and there now for 3 yrs. Wondering why I can't do more myself. I catch myself being lazy for sure. I walk every day at lunch but when I get home do you think I work out? Nope! I can't lose weight if I don't. I will maintain which is fine but I don't want to be the same shape I am now. I would really like to lose some of my belly and inner thighs. Most of my weight is in those two areas.

I really need to plan again and deliver. I saw myself in the mirror the other day (side view) I was horrified. I couldn't believe I was that round. LOL This was sorta the same view that got me moving the first time. (I saw myself sitting on the toilet in the mirror at a hotel on vacation with the kiddos in Pittsburg. Now to get moving.

Can you workout after work before heading home? I don't get all sweaty at work myself I just walk outside. Dr even put up a picnic table outside now for me. I eat my lunch at work every day so this will be nice. I can take my lunch outside then go on my walk. Talk to you later. Gotta get Gavie ready and head out to get Anna. Have a good day!!

Ask me if I stayed logging? I haven't! Just lazy! I have gotten up early, got ready for work, made my family breakfast and now hello to you.

I am almost 40 years old and I still do not have self control. What's wrong with that picture? This is the only reason why I am still over weight. I just don't know how to stick to what I say I am going to do.

Today when I come home, I am going to take my nap, get dinner ready and then get in my workout. Getting up at 4a is too much of a struggle for right now. I wish I could workout when at work. I just get to hot to quickly and will need to change before going back to work.

Even though I am tired of logging & weighing food intake. I am probably going to have to do it for the rest of my life. I am going to have to go back to the basics that actually worked for me.

This is exercising for 30 min to an hour, taking every single bite and stopping once I got my limits. Sounds simple right!

Wish me luck!

I can't believe that I turn 40 in July and I challenged myself to have my weight under control by then. This was my trigger this morning. This is soooo ridiculous and frustrating. I'm putting myself on a very strict diet and I need to force myself to stick to it. I keep having these temptations, like today there were little chocolates left at the desk for the employees. I was about to eat the last 2, but I ended up throwing them away. I know that I shouldn't cut things out of my life completely, but I don't know how to eat foods in moderation.

I need to stop the excuses and just do what I need to do to drop this weight. It's just too much and I know my weight isn't going to disappear on it's on. I need to work at making myself better.

My kids are doing extremely well in school and with their every day activities. We are going to take them out to lunch as a treat when I get home from work. If we could afford it, they deserve any and everything because they are sooo good.

Work is sooo good when I do not have any contact with my manager. I love just being left alone to do my thing. We had a meeting the other day and he just sounded soooo ridiculous. The things that he wants us to work on, he doesn't do himself. How crazy is that?

I am going home after work and throwing out all of my snacks that I looooove. I just don't know how to control myself. I know if they are out of the house, I can't eat them. I will introduce them back once I gain back control.

I had a dream last night, that I went visiting my family and they all made fun of me. I think that was my wake up call.

Hey there D. I usually wander about my boss. She never can make up her mind on how she wants to do things. Drives me bonkers sometimes. Nothing worse then stupid boss's. Be strong and hope he leaves soon.

How's your night going? We went to test drive a car today and we are going to get it. We got them down $400 so it isn't to bad. Has a little bit of work but for the price I think we got a pretty good deal. Runs really good and the body is nice too. I will be able to give my dad back his car and I will have my own ride again. We are still going to get my Jeep fixed too. Thinking when it gets closer we may give the car to Anna for her 18th bday gift. I will have to wait to see when it's closer. I would like to get a Ford Explorer.

I'm happy to say that the whole family is in one room at this moment. We haven't all been in the same room for a long time. Night have a great night!!

Have you ever had a Stupid boss? Someone who really doesn't know what the hell he's doing? I have one of those. I went from a boss who just didn't care, to one that's just stupid. This is the foray time I have a stupid boss. I just go my way and he goes his way. I try and stay away from him because he annoys me. I am thankful that I know how to keep my month shut. I also have the ability to not let him know I don't like him. I am just waiting on him to move on to another job and we get another manager. We need someone with a backbone.

My bad habit that I need to give up is late night snacking. Wish me luck!

Hubby surprised me yesterday by working a half day and hanging out with me the Tasty of the day. Then we went to see the movie, Barber Shop 3 which was funny. Same plot as the other 2, but still new jokes that made me laugh. It was nice just hanging out with my baby.

Eating is our of control again. This is crazy that I just can't keep myself in check. Today is a new day and I am going to make out right. I bought more fruits to snack on when I feel like munching.

Later, I am off to work.

Enjoying my day doing nothing, lol. Hubby bright me lunch, now working from home from the rest of the day. He has also planned a date night which I am looking forward to tonight. Kids are on their way home from school and I can't wait to hear about their days.

My eating has been on and off being healthy. Of course not enough to bring the scale down. Being healthy these days takes a lot of effort on my behalf.

Enjoying my second day off in a row. This is my first whole weekend off. It would be even better if my little one wasn't feeling sick. Yesterday before taking Gavie up to bed I realized he had a fever. I tried to get him to take his chewable Tylenol (he normally takes it no problem) but he mustta felt so bad he didn't want to cooperate. By the time I was going to take him up to bed I went to pick him up and he was burning up. Found a thermometer and he had a 102 temp. Finally got some Tylenol in him (had to put it in his cool-aid). He slept until 6am and had an accident in bed which woke him up. I thought it was pee but he had diarrhea too. Poor kiddo. Atleast my house will be clean LOL I just wish he was feeling better it is gorgeous outside.

Weighed in yesterday at 150 again. I also got my blood work back from hubbies health assessment we have to do every year to keep his ins down. I saw my weight has been 147-150 for the past 3 yrs. I thought that was interesting. I have gotten my cholesterol down too. It's still at the high end but it's not in the red anymore. YAY ME!!

Hubby and my brother are at Pull A Part now pulling a rear end for my jeep and an engine for a car my brother is working on. I hope it isn't to expensive and they can get it fixed soon. I have been driving my dad's car now for a few months. Luckily it hasn't caused to much trouble but I know with the weather being nicer and nicer dad's plans with his friends and father will become an issue with me getting to and from work. I am determined to get our finances back on track it kills me. I just hope it doesn't kill hubby and I. He gets so mad about money issues but he doesn't want anything to do with the bills. Anyway......that is a whole other issue.

I hope you have a great day and are doing well. Talk to you soon!!

Eating lunch now. Forgot my morning snack so I'm hungry now. I had a black forest ham sandwich with am cheese and mustard, a gogert (stole from Gavin's snack pile lol), strawberries and an Apple. Planning to get outside for a walk soon too.

Started witing in my journal too to see if that keeps me accountable. I leave it out in the open to remind me to jot down what I need to. Yesterday was not a good food day for me. I found out though that I eat alot when I'm bored. I caught myself in the kitchen alot yesterday. I did end up getting a long walk with Gavin in the stroller last night too. So it wasn't a complete wash.

Continuing the graduation preparations. I'm sad and happy at the same time. I'll post pics later (closer to May 28). Off I go on my lunch walk.

Have a great day!!

Afternoon my friend. Hope things are well with you. I finally got a journal to write in. Now to get started. I peaked at the scale this morning before heading to the dermatologist and the scale said I am still the same. I will take it because I am not doing anything other then small walks at lunch. I bought a new scale and it tells me the cals I need to maintain my weight. Interesting thing I saw is that I need to eat 1800+ cals to maintain my current weight. I was a bit surprised to see that number.

My mini goal is to write in my journal, eat 1500 cals, drink more water and workout 3 days at minimum a week. Baby steps here I go.

Happy Sunday evening!! Had a nice Sunday for the most part. Didn't do much of anything. I need to pack my lunch here in a few before heading up to bed. This way I don't have to worry about that part when I'm getting ready for work. Planning alittle ahead this week.

emoticon job D!!!

Found out at work today I get to be off the next 2 Saturdays!! I have been working every Saturday now since the beginning of Feb. UGGG Phil has to work this coming Sat so he gets to go in early and if I go in to do the mail I will just take Gavin with me for an hour or so. Doesn't bother me to go in since Phil is going to be working. But making plans now for the next weekend. Thinking Pittsburg Zoo and Aquarium. Not sure if we will stay somewhere too or just made a day of it. Gotta look into the prices of hotels around. I will have to work Friday so if Phil wants to make a whole weekend we won't be able to go til after 5.

Gotta get to cleaning the house up again so I won't have to do it tomorrow on my full day off. Enjoy your day!!

Up early heading to work while my family continues to sleep. The house is soooo quiet, all I can hear is our hearing system. Just the way I like it! Off to work I go!

Lady night after my awesome nutritional day. I had to fight not to snack. I have a late night snacking problem. Instead I just rolled over and went to bed. Actually props of myself. I all myself, why do I even have the smacks in the house in the first place? They are my comfort foods! Bad excuse I know.

I have been trying to get to bed on time, which makes it a lot easier to wake up in the mornings. Work went by extremely fast, came home, took a nap, made dinner, exercised, hung out with the family and now about to head to bed.

I am soooo proud that I am able to keep up my nutrition routine. Today was a good day and I am not going to bed starving. It's all about finding what works. And I think I finally found it!

Anna bought herself a laptop last night. After we finally got home she went straight to her room and started playing on it. I'm bummed she is old enough to even want to buy one herself. Now I am thinking of other things to get her for graduation gifts because I was going to buy her one next month.

I'm so tired tonight. I am so glad today went so smooth at work and wasn't a repeat for yesterday. No walk though today.....rain and cold = no outside walking. I bought a small journal book for me to start writing. Hoping this will help me get back on track and lessen my stress will be a big bonus. I have a hard time sleeping lately. Gavin is wetting the bed again so he wakes up in the middle of the night calling me. Then after he goes back to bed he wakes up before my alarm saying he wet himself. I get up again and clean him up and lay down and Phil starts snoring again. Then Gavin will come climb in bed with us. Then the bad news alarm goes off again and I get to start my day. I was so tired this morning I got my coffee ready and for pushed the brew button but forgot to put my cup under.

Hope you had a great day today!!! Talk to you later!!

Looks like I'm going shopping tonight after Anna gets off work. She wants to buy herself a laptop. Of course I was wanting to get it for her for a graduation present. LOL she does this to me at Christmas time every year too. While I'm out I'm going to pick up a smallish journal to write my thoughts, feelings, accomplishments and set backs in.

No walk today its raining. I'd use Drs treadmill but it's loud and patients are here now. Guess we'll see how it goes after work.

Have a great day. Gotta head back to work soon.

Hi again. Don't beat yourself up today is a new day. What did you do today?

Gavin got a big boy bike right before Easter and we decided to go out for a bit today. We headed to the nearby elementary school to play in the playground but had to turn around 1/2 way there because it started to rain. We finally got home and it really came down. I was going to wait it out but you never know if it's going to pour or sprinkle or stop. It didn't just if you were wandering. LOL That's all I got in today. I didn't get a walk Mon or Tuesday either because of the weather. I really need to focus again on what I want. My life is just spiraling and I just don't know how to get it back under control. Anna graduating doesn't help anything either I guess. My heart is breaking.

I am going to get a notebook today and start again. I liked writing things down before. Maybe I need a journal instead for my everyday living maybe it will keep me on track better. I think it is a good idea. I will give it a try. I will need a small one that fits in my purse.....

One thing I did do today to help me get back on track......killed me doing it but it had to be done......I tossed out ALL the Easter candy. No candy in the house now that I would eat and eat it I do.

Better get going. The laundry won't fold itself LOL

Have a great day!!

Did I exercise yesterday? No! Ask me why? Just because I was too lazy and didn't want to change into my workout clothes. Totally not a good excuse! I have more than enough time to very it in. Hope Rosati is better and I get my act together

I have been up since around 4am and have been getting some work done on my computer. I'm about to get some laundry and cleaning done around the house. Saturday's are cleaning day! My new schedule allows for sooooo many more scheduled days. I manage better when my days are organized and predictable.

I am still totally loving my new schedule set work. I just have an excellent life and I am completely happier. I am able to spend soooo much time with my family.

Kids are home for Spring break until Monday. We went to NY over the weekend, but we had to come back for me to go back to work after a week vacation. I actually just found out that I have Sat & Sun off and I will be heading back to NY. I haven't told the kids just in case I change my mind.

I went to bed by 10:30 last night and now I am up before my alarm clock. There is something wrong with toys picture. I don't like waking up to early because then I will be even more tired when I get off my shift.

Hey there. Been quite busy. When it rains it pours. My jeep's still not fixed, our basement sprung a leak then a different one after first was fixed and now my dads car is in the garage. I just don't know how much more I can take. Not eating right now and not working out.

Tomorrow I'm off and will be going to Gavin's prek spring party. Talk to u later.

Take care and YAY for having hubby on board with you now!!!

I have finally gotten hubby motivated again to lose weight. It's awesome that he always supports me and is now in this journey again with me. Praying that his encouragement & motivation lasts long enough for us to be more successful this time around.

You always have a lot going on. Wooow, I totally do not look forward to the first time when Maya brings home a boy for the first time. OMG! Just to much!

My MIL is in town and I am so happy we all get along. We went to an outlet mall and found good deals. We need to go back when we have more time.

My days seem to be going by extremely quickly. I wish I was making them healthy days. I haven't exercised in a couple days and I haven't been eating the best either. What's wrong with me?

That is a bummer about forgetting about the alarm so early on your day off. I forgot to set my alarm like a normal day wake up. Good thing I got up with my first alarm. This week the office is closed so I decided to work 8-5 M,T, and Th. so my alarm is set for 530 and 6 and 630 just incase. Tuesdays I normally have 630 and 7 wake up. I thought I slept through my 6 but I figured out I forgot to set my alarm differently. I had a ride today too. My Jeep is still not fixed and I'm using dads. But now that the weather is getting nicer I will need rides again until my Jeep gets fixed. I hope we can get it done with our income tax.

I got a great walk in this afternoon. It was so nice out I decided to walk a bit further today and drop the mail off at the mail box down the road. I was outside for 30 min and loved every minute. Tonight I got in Day 2 of the 21 day fix. I didn't want to do it I am so sore already. Tomorrow I'm going to wish I was dead so I wouldn't hurt LOL Feels good though that I did it.

Anna is over her boyfriend already. I think she just broke up with him a week ago and tonight she asked if Nick can come over and meet me. O my!! I knew this was going to happen because she started liking boys later then most girls her age. OMG!! Some days I want to hug her and other times I want to strangle her LOL

Starting to plan her graduation party too. I'm not happy she's a senior this year. I am not ready for her to graduate. We have all the napkins, plates, and table cloths. Starting to get the centerpieces now. I think I figured out the food and drink too so we can start picking up pop on sale.

Better get ready for bed and get Gavin in bed soon. Talk to you later!! Here's to a great day tomorrow for both of us!

Of course I forgot to turn off my alarm this morning on my day off. So, I have been awake since 5:15 and just finished my workout. After this week of exercise my knees are already saying thank you. I am hardly feeling any pain. Now I have to keep it up!

What is everyone up to today? I need to clean, cook, get laundry done, grocery shop and other things before the kids get home from school. Then my Maya has soccer practice, Of course I forgot to turn off my alarm this morning on my day off. So, I have been awake since 5:15 and just finished my workout.

Feeling good about myself today. Even though I didn't get up in time for a morning workout I did walk at lunch(it was beautiful outside today) and I got in my first 30 min workout in of the 21 day fix. I'm mainly focusing on the workouts and watching my food. I know it will be better if I do both but since I haven't done anything for quite sometime I think it might be to much and I'll quit before I see any results. Who knows maybe I will make better choices while I go. Either way here's to a great day 1 for me.

Hope your day is going well. I'll talk to you soon.

Great job!! Hope this week goes fast. I work Mon, Tues, and Thursday 8-5 then we are off to PA. Looking into visiting Hershey Park in April now. I received an email with special prices. Only thing is it will probably still be chilly. I'll keep you updated when it gets closer. I mapped it from Phil's mom's and it is only 1.5 hrs away. If we stay there we can save on lodging.....

Planning to head to bed now and get out of bed tomorrow morning to get in a 30 min workout. I have good intensions to do a workout after work and I never do. Gotta do something and quick.

Night D!!

Travel safely Michelle and totally enjoy the time with your family.

Yesterday was another successful day. I ate well, got in my workout and was able to get close to 7 hours of sleep. The only thing I need to start doing again is measuring and keeping track of my every bite daily. Time to start logging again!

I have started scheduling my workout routines in my day calendar. It's going to remind me every day at 4pm that it's time to exercise. It totally worked for me today because I was about to relax and take my normal nap. Instead, I got my butt up, put on my sneakers and burned my 300 well needed calories. I feel awesome and extremely proud. Feeling accomplished!

Enjoy your vacation in May. Sounds like fun.

We are heading to Berwick, Pa next Friday and be home that Sunday. Going to visit Phil's mom and sister. The kids will be doted on for sure. Been awhile since we've been there.

Great job working out D! I got in 2 - 1 mile walks this week. Yesterday I cleaned house abd nothin today. It's 39 outside today so not walking today. My boss decided I should work through lunch now so I don't get to walk on the treadmill only Fridays when no patients are here. I onky work one job but I am trying to sell Pampered chef now on the side. Going to give it til the end of May if I can't get it up and going I'm just going to let it go. It's to hard some days to do but if I can get it started I'd like to keep it. I absolutely LOVE pampered chef.

I am going to do some sort of workout tonight. Nothing strenuous because I have a sore throat today :0 (

Almost time to go back to work. Talk later

Today was a coming day for me to get ready for my week. I have been off the last 2 days and I am happy to day I have enough healthy foods in the house to stay constant. Family is fed and now it's up to me to keep myself together to reach my weekly goals. I am actually about to go and change into my workout clothes too burn my needed calories. I just need to get myself moving.

Wow, I can't believe it's March already. I have a trip in May to St.Vincent to celebrate my mother's birthday. I can't let everyone see new at my highest weight ever. I think I look terrible. Who is to blame besides myself? I need to get it together for real.

Today I will be cooking enough protein to last for the week, freeze and take out as needed. This will totally help me to only easy at home. Now that I work mornings and a normal schedule, I could poor myself back on a regular eating schedule. I keep telling myself no more excuses.

This week, my workout goal is too burn 300 calories at least 5 days.

Back at it again feels awesome!! I now need to throw out the foods I loooove a little bit too much. It's not good to be addicted to food. I need to get back in control and try not to fall back into bad habits.

Today was officially day#1 with me back on track. I got in my workout A's I know I didn't overeat. I just finished my 30 min workout, building my way back up to 60 minute. I still need to make tomorrow a better one.

March is right around the corner and it subs as though a vacation I'd totally needed. Hope Gavin didn't keep you up too late last night. What time does he normally go to bed? Where did you end up going for Mommy/son day?

One reason why I quit my 2nd job was because I didn't have the energy to close. Do you only work One job now? Working 2 for me was soooo hard.

I am currently at work planning on getting in my workout when I get home. I have just booked to go to St. Vincent in May and I totally can't wait. My Mom is turning 70 and my sister and I are going to celebrate with her.

Work is going well actually. I just wish I didn't have to close on Monday's and Tuesday's. I don't get out til late and I just don't like that. Other than that they pay me well and I get holiday pay now. I think I will get vacation time starting in May. Guess we will find out come May. It will be here before I know it too.

March 11th we are heading to Berwick to visit hubbies mom and sister for the weekend. I am looking forward to a few days off work. I am not looking forward to my step daughter and her boyfriend being there too but I guess it could be worse. Her boyfriend is not the brightest bulb there is out there. He gets on my nerves LOL

Tomorrow is Mommy/Gavie day. We will go to the library or somewhere together. He doesn't mind staying home with me on our day either. I don't want to stay home though tomorrow. It's been so cold and now that is warming up I really woul dlike to be outside.

Have a nice night!! Bed is calling me but Gavin isn't ready just yet. Talk to you tomorrow!!

Glad that everything is working for you and your job. It's awesome that you're able to workout during your lunch break. Awww, Gavin sounds adorable! Hopefully, you can get in a Mommy/son day soon with him.

Kids are new fine with homework and we are hanging out waiting on hubby to get home.

Enjoy your day off!! Gavin woke up early today asking if it was mommy Gavie day. My heart sunk knowing it wasn't and on top of it it's my long day to boot.

Got 10 min on the gazelle. Wish I brought warmer pants to go outside and walk but I didn't so I chose the quietter equipment here at the Dr.'s office.

Better get going it's the end of my lunch. Have fun today!!

Michelle, emoticon to have you back. I know how it is to fall off the wagon, but we have to try and stay present to get ourselves refocused. You can do it!! I am always here for you.

I am about to get changed to jump on my treadmill. It has been collecting dust lately and it's time to wipe it off. Today is my day off and I an enjoying the piece and quiet of the house.

To cold to walk outside and Dr.'s treadmill is to loud to use when he's seeing patients so I jumped on the gazelle for 10 min instead of only taking 1/2 lunch. 10 min is definitely better then nothing at all like I've been doing.

Heading back now. Have a nice day!! I'll try to get back on later.

I am so tired. This is the hardest thing I've had to do. I am so sorry I disappear often. I just do good for a few weeks then I let life get in the way. I just don't know what to do sometimes.

Tomorrow is a new day and a new day is a new start. Before bed I am going to pick out my clothes for work so they are ready for me when I wake up. I don't like searching my room in the dark. I already know what my lunch is so that won't be to bad to get together. I can put it together when I start my coffee in the morning. I normally take a walk on the treadmill at work but since Dr.'s wife changed my lunch time an hour later I can't walk on it since it is so loud. If it is nice again tomorrow I will go out if not I am only going to take 1/2 lunch.

Gotta go to bed and finish this day and hope for a better tomorrow.

Night my friend!!

I am trying to determine if I should quit my part-time job. Normally, I am ready to just give my 2 week notice when I am tired. So, I am going to wait it out and see how I feel when I have gotten 2 days off in a row. Plus, I have brought down my availability to only 2 days. This at most will give me about 14 hours max a week. I will see how much money this is and if it's even worth it. The deals are awesome because I keep getting $.49 cent good quality clothing for the family. That's are items that normally would have cost a lot more at full price. We shall see what happens!

The scale is going like a rollercoaster. I can't get past this, but still fighting. I won't give up and just need to be more consistent and keep having healthy foods cooked in the house. That will stop me from eating out

Tomorrow is my first morning shift at work and I am soooooo excited for the change. I am even more excited about having more family time and sanity. I pray that this all works out for a long time coming.

Once I figure out how all of this is going to work out, I can't wait to get I a normal workout routine. I shouldn't be as tired and be able to burn my needed calories. I look forward to new beginnings!

emoticon weighed in at 177. I'm going to start letting you know my weight more often in hopes that it will help to keep me motivated.

I love cooking with my family! Last night we found a recipe online and made it at home as a family. Hubby purchased the items while me and my daughter Maya put it together. It interesting that my son Alex, just sits back and waits to be called. LOL. We had a family fun day, started out with hubby taking the kids roller skating while I slept. Then once I woke up, we went to our recreational center to play basketball. It was fun playing and meeting new people.

Every time I think about walking, I find a way to think my way out of it. I'm just really trying to get my nutrition under control consistently and then add in a good workout routine. I really want to fit back into some more clothes. I promised myself to be close to my goal weight by the time I turn 40 and that's going to be this July. I have to get moving if my dream is going to come true because this weight is not going to come off on it's own.

I got home from work and my daughter Maya made me breakfast in bed. She made me am Omelet with onions, green peppers, sausage and mozzarella cheese and toast on the side. Mmmm, then woke up at around 4p. Had a nice family fun day playing basketball with the kids and ending cooking a delicious dinner and watching TV with hubby. Kept myself under control with my meals and ended with a bowl of popcorn.

Michelle, soooo sorry I haven't stopped by here in a couple days. Looks like you are totally being back under control. emoticon

emoticon that Anna has also gotten her weight back where you guys want it. emoticon

I have been doing well, just working hard and trying to figure out where I am going to settle. My hotel job came back with the offer I have been waiting for. They are going to bring me to mornings after 2 weeks. I pray they will hold their promise because working 7a to 3p will work out awesome with my family. I have never had an only morning job.

Hope things are going well with you still. How is the juicing going?

I've been getting in atleast 10 min walking everyday this week but Wed. I shoveled that day. I even got in a walk today super proud of myself. We went to the grocery store today and tomorrow I will get the meals planned and pre-make my oatmeal for the mornings.

Getting ready to take Gavin to bed. Can't wait because he is going to want Phil which means Phil will fall asleep first and I get a quiet bed for the night LOL Poor Gavie though....I really don't know how he sleeps with his dad because his snoring is so LOUD lol

Have a great night!!

Got another walk today at lunch on the treadmill. I really need to eat a breakfast but I just don't get ready in time. I am going to plan something to make ahead and grab it on the go. Tonight and tomorrow night I am planning the dinners, snacks, lunches, and breakfasts. Hope I can keep the grocery bill down. Probably not since Phil will want to go out too. Uggg I just want to get caught up and not have to pay this and not this and pay that and not this. It gets confusing on what needs paid and when. O well such is life.

I've been doing great keeping my walking going this week. I want to add strength training next week. We will see.

Hope everything is going good for you!! Night

Today is my day off and I'm really enjoying it so far. Started taking the Christmas decorations down while Gavin was sleeping. He doesn't want it to go away. He likes the lights and snowmen around. This morning I got in to see a dermatologist finally. I have been wanting to go for along time and I finally called today and got in. Recently a Derm. Dr started coming to the Dr.'s office and I noticed her number yesterday said Dermatology so I asked her if she took new patients and she told me to call at 7am because she knew of 2 openings and they open early and start calling to fill them up then. I called and they got me in today. She told the girls I may call and to keep the 915 open for me. I'm so excited. My chin will soon start looking better. She thinks it's mainly hormonal. She prescribed a pill and cream and I need to use a special cleanser in the am and pm and use the cream in the am and pm. Can't wait to see if it works.

Gotta run quick and get Anna from school. Have a good day!!

Well we got snow today. Did you get much? We got a few inches. Snowed a bit at night but mainly while everyone was asleep. Woke up to a call from the school saying that it was cancelled. To bad the Dr off wasn't closed. LOL Gavin had a great day in the snow and at my parents. I really don't know what we would be doing now if it wasn't for them.

Anyway I got in a nice 20 min walk again today at lunch on the Dr.'s treadmill in the PT room. I like to walk outside but it is just to darn cold and I'm a woos. I am going to call a dermatologist tomorrow morning to see if I can get in. I am tired of my chin breaking out esp when they are painful. Then I am going to take Gavin outside to play for a few min and shovel the back walk way. Then to go in and have hot coco and plan for the rest of the week and next. I really need to see about going to the grocery but I will see how I feel tomorrow.

Hope you are having a great day!! Night my friend. It is time to put Gavin to bed and then I'll be following.

I got in a nice 20 min walk on the Dr.'s treadmill at lunch today. I was up to 3.7 mph. I will take that since I haven't been walking for quite a bit now. I feel great after I'm done though. I have quite a bit of tidying up to do yet tonight. I was hoping to get Gavin to bed at 930pm tonight. He hasn't been sleeping well and I'm getting sleepy now. Over ate tonight I think. I'm under my calories (not by much) but all my other numbers don't meet or are over. So not all loss better tomorrow I suppose.

Anna has been working out the last few days. She is afraid of gaining weight now. She was heavier then I am now at one point but lost all of it. She is down to 110# now. I am keeping an eye out on her eating to make sure she is eating. She looks good. I can't wait to be smaller (atleast in my middle). Looks like I'm going to have a baby still LOL.

Take care. I'm off to tidy up. I'll talk to you tomorrow at lunch time. I hope you enjoyed your time with the kiddos. What did you all end up doing?
