I picked up a bad habit again and it's hard for me to stop. Late night snacking or just snacking all together! I am about to join the challenge to do a bad habit. Wish me luck.

I do hope that Gavin adjusts to you working soon. What is his normal wake up time? My kids still don't know how to sleep past the sunrise. They make me laugh because they are the first to bed and normally the first to rise when we have no where to go. How is work going? Are you still taking classes? How are you adjusting to everything? Once I return I will definitely be getting back on track.

I have visited St. Vincent, which is a 30 minute plain ride from Barbados for the last 5 days and have loved every moment of it. We are hoping to be landing at around 7:30p back in NY. I really don't want to head back yet because I don't want to go back to work. Work has really been draining me lately and I'm feeling stressed just thinking about everything that needs to be done and all that's going on.

When I get back, I have a session with my trainer first thing on Monday. It's time to get myself moving again. Weigh in day is Monday, so I will see my results and let you know.

Hi D! I hope you are enjoying your vacation!! Where'd you go and what did you do?

I've been hit and miss with working out. I really need to get more sleep. Gavin isn't liking that I'm working. He's acting like I work full time.....I'm home before he naps (IF he naps). I have been walking a lot with Gavin. He has been walking so it isn't really a walk. Yesterday however I got a nice walk in. On our way home Gavin fell asleep. He woke up this morning at 630am and Phil wasn't pleased.

Enjoy your Friday!! I'm about to go walk to the circle k for a pop (for Anna). The walk is mainly for us to get out of the house but it is also to get us moving too.

I'm going on vacation for the next week and I can't wait. Today is my last shift before I leave and I am not even going to think of this place in any way shape or form. My goal is to actually stay on track and come back to weigh in with a loss. Is that possible from a vacation? Wish me luck! I refuse to see 175 again on the scale. So, I'm going to be weighing in on Sunday since we leave really early Monday morning. The reading will be more accurate.

I really need to learn how to control myself with what I put into my mouth. I feel like I'm always saying it and that's why it's really getting on my nerves. This journey is just really getting harder and harder and it's starting to piss me off. Why does it have to be so difficult. Today, I met with Alison my personal trainer and we did a lot of interval strength and cardio work. She pushed me in a good way and now I'm ready for my bed.

I'm sorry work is going so bad lately. You work a lot that is for sure. I do hope you are enjoying your time off!! I hope it gets better quick for you.

Phil's Jeep decided not to start yesterday when he was on his way out the door. Today I made it to Advanced to have them check it and they said it was good so now to figure out why it isn't holding a charge. I was hoping to work over this week too. Guess not. I plan to go to a couple stores after work on Friday if I can. I need to pick up a few outfits for work. May go up to Once Upon a Child too to see if they will buy back enough of Gavin's clothes that don't fit him and go in the store next door to see if I can find a few things. I bought my prego clothes there too.

We finally got a swing set for Gavin. He really enjoys it too. Sad to say we've had it for 3 days and we now have a woodpecker in the little house part. I scared it yesterday and I haven't seen him since. I hope I scared him enough to stay away. Other than that I'm not sure how to get rid of him.

I hope Gavin will go to bed for me tonight. I'm pretty tired. He has kicked my butt the last two nights. I'm already ready for bed I'm so tired. Have a good night. He wants me gotta go.

Sounds like you had such a wonderful weekend with friends and family.

My weekend was the worst ever!! I need another job. I no longer enjoy my job. I just want to go to work, worry about myself and go home. It's just not worth it sometimes. I am trying to keep smiling, but it's getting harder and harder.

We got the swing set yesterday and power washed it and now it looks almost new again. I can't believe how dirty that was. Today we are going to go out to a local camp ground to see fireworks and hang out with family and friends on my SIL side. We went last year and it was fun this year will be interesting since Gavin is bigger now and likes to explore everything. I'll be walking ALL day after 2pm so I'm taking that as my workout. Maybe I'll even get a good faster walk alone too. Getting his bag ready now. My Anna will be home tonight too. They went to CT for the week. Gavin missed her 3 days in......LOL Well I'm off to get ready for the day.

emoticon emoticon Happy 4th of July!! emoticon emoticon

I'm off today :) running about 30-45 min behind my anticipated time this morning but it's ok. I'm about to head out to my moms with my step dvd to feed her doggies and get a workout in while I'm there. I like spending about an hr with them in the mornings since they're alone this week. I'm going to get in a workout just in case I can't mow after. It's all foggy here now. We are getting Gavin a new/used wood swing set today. I'm so excited.

Well I'm off!! Have a wonderful 4th of July D!!

Is it crazy that I came home yesterday, got in a workout and ended with 2 bowls of ice cream? What sense does that make? Stone times I feel as though I am sabotaging my weight loss. I could just bear myself up. This journey is just hard!

Crazy our bodies!! My scale decided to go up yesterday and today even more. I just don't get it. Only thing I can think of is work and pop are messin with me. I'm happy to say I got in a small step workout this morning. I hadn't done this dvd in quite some time. Tomorrow I'll need to get to mom's alittle earlier so I can do one of my more challenging dvds before heading to work. I think the dogs enjoy my company in the morning. It's nice to not have to tip toe around too.....LOL I can enjoy it for a few more days then back to tip toeing LOL

Have a great day today!! Today is a new month ALREADY!!! OMG!!! Gonna be putting lots of smiley stickers on my July calendar!! Talk to you later!!

Glad that work is going well, but I'm kind of with Phil. You really don't know what your giving up until you have the interview to see what they are offering. Sounds like you really have everything planned out to get you through the week. Hopefully, everything falls into line as you want it to.

My weigh in is really driving me CRAZY!! I try to stay in line days before my weigh in and used yesterday as my cheat day. The scale went up for my weigh in day yesterday and now back down again this morning. How does the scale go down when I've had a pizza hut whole personal pizza pan, boneless wings and 2 big bowls of ice cream for dinner? I really can't explain what my body does. All I know is that I really want to get into the 160's sooooo badly and I could smell it.

Work is going great I'm super excited. I ran into my boss Saturday and he said I was doing great and then he continued to tell me that he wants me to learn how to run the whole office. Last night I listened to my voice mail finally and there was a message from an oral surgan's office wanting to see if I was still available for an interview for a coding position. I put my resume in over a month ago. Not sure what I want to do now. I really enjoy the job I'm doing now.....easy peasy for now anyway. Phil said I should go and check it out since I went to school for that area......I told him but I'm doing something now with my first degree. So technically I am working and applying my degree. Hmmmmm

I'm feeling better now that my Larry is home again. I'm going to buy a plaque for his urn in a few weeks. We put his collar on him and when we walk by him we both say Hi to him still. Lady is having a hard time with him gone. She doesn't understand. She isn't eating for me. I'm going to give her til next week before taking her to the vet if she doesn't come around. Poor puppy doggy she's sad. This week is busy busy.....My parents are away for the week so I'm taking care of her dogs for them. I decided to go this morning and get ready there so they had someone there for awhile longer. I think it was good. Then I go to work. Go home and see Gavin and say goodbye to Phil. I'm going to add a 2 oclock check in so I don't have to keep cleaning up doggy messes (I think they are used to going out more often now that dad is retired). Go back and feed them around 6 and then Phil will be stopping to take them out on his way home around 11pm. I'm going to be whooped by Friday. Tomorrow I'm taking my step over to get in even a small workout in the morning. I had plenty of time today so I'm going to try tomorrow.

Hope all is well with you! Have a nice evening!

The scale isn't being friendly to either of us this week. Weigh in was the same as last week....I'll take it atleast it isn't going up. Here's to another week!!

I didn't get my workout in today but I did get a job!! It is part time and is only 6 miles from home instead of 20 (one way). I got a call Thursday for a phone interview and then they called me on Friday for a face to face on Monday morning (9am). It didn't take long at all and it seemed to have gone very good. I was told that I'd hear from them Wednesday since tomorrow they had another interview. Today alittle before 3 I got another call from them offering me the job. They offered $1 less an hour but after 30 days I'd be up for a raise so I took it. I'm only taking a .60 pay cut from my old job and I'm not driving 40 miles a day I'm only driving 12. My hours are 8-12:30pm Monday-Friday and potentially turn into full time down the road. I'm good with all of it. Now to WOW them on how well I do. I really want them to be happy with me and I really want a raise in 30 days. My job is office/purchasing/inventory control. Job atmosphere is casual too. It is for an oil/gas company. I was excited when she called and said winter time she likes to wear jeans and hoodies. My kind of clothes!!! LOL I'm excited I can still stay home with the baby a bit longer now. I'm also happy too that I will be getting a pay check again soon too. LOL

I'm off to bed so I can try to get up early for a small workout before work! Can't believe it I've finally got a job.....I've been unemployed now since 10/29/12 (wow almost 2 yrs). Have a fabulous day tomorrow!! I will let you know how work goes later.

The scale has been up and down this month, but I am not surprised. My nutrition hasn't been on target as it should be. With that said, I need to get back focused on my goal. Right now that's to get into the 160's. 5 more pounds to go. How long well it be to get there. I have been in the 160's for about 2 months too long.

The scale hasn't moved since my weigh in on Monday. The question to myself is why not? I think is because I didn't exercise yesterday. I need to get moving if I want to burn these calories off. This morning, I am just too tired this morning. Plus I have to go into work early.

Sounds like a busy day you have. Totally wishing, Phil, your dad, brother and all of the men in your life a wonderful Father's Day!

We are keeping it nice and simple today. The kids made Harold breakfast in bed and then took him to the movies. We are either going out to lunch or dinner. It's totally up to the kids with what we do throughout the day. It's great to see them grow up and plan this special day for there dad. My dad is in NY and I am about to call him soon.

O no those darn Cheetos will get me too. They are so yummy.

Yesterday I weighed in and finally saw a loss....now to see if I can keep it going. This is where I always yo yo. Today's plan is get a workout in before going to my brothers for a Father's Day get together. If not I will over eat and feel bad afterwards. Pick up the house a bit and about 4 go down to my brother's for the day. There's going to be a lot of people there.

O and my friend is selling me his wooden swing set for Gavin (I'm so happy and can't wait to go and figure out how to get it home) and my mom sent me a text saying they wanted to pay for it for me. I'm super excited too. Anna's room is finally underway too. I've cleaned it and now I just need to pick up paint and figure out what to do with her floor. Next week her bed will be here and hopefully we will be done with that project for a while. LOL

Have a great day!!! I'll talk to you later!!

Last night I almost made it without my late night snacking. It was around 11p and instead of just going to bed, I grabbed 5 1oz cheetos bags. They are 150 calories each, which totaled 750 calories right before bed. Why do I do it to myself?

Michelle, I'm sorry that you are having such a hard time finding a job. I'm a die hard believer that everything happens for a reason. The Lord up above will definitely take care of you and your family. You will find the right job when it's the right time. I just know that everything will work out, you just have to wait and see how everything plays out. I definitely know it's easier said than done.

I've been working these late shifts and I'm soooooooooo tired. I just don't have any energy. Every single second I could sleep, I take advantage of it. I really can't figure out why I'm soo exhausted all the time. I've been trying to stick to my eating plan and drinking tons of water. Weigh in day is Monday for me, so I still have time to see results on the scale. Only if I learn how to keep my mouth shut.

Morning!! I am relaxing checking my emails. Gavin went to bed late last night and woke up at normal time today LOL. I dropped Anna off at the church to head to Cedar Point with the youth group. She is afraid of roller coasters but wanted to go still so I went ahead and let her go. I'm hoping she will go on atleast one to see how it goes. She may like them now who knows.

I tracked my food yesterday. I think I got everything but a small snack. I see I'm way under too. Let's see how today goes.

Enjoy your day today!!!

HI D!! I'm right there with you. I've finally gotten my workouts in and want to get them in. Now it is time to track the foods that I eat. I just don't know why it is so hard to lose this weight....I just know I will NOT gain it back because of how hard I'm working to lose it. I'm staying in the 165-167 weight range per my scale....not really sure if it is accurate but as long as I don't see anything higher then 167 I'm ok. I'm working on strength and core workouts too while Gavin is napping (if he naps).

So baby steps here I go.
1) get my workout in emoticon
2) watch my eating and track it (includes getting more water in too) emoticon

I hope you are doing well. I am having a stressful June. I still don't have a job and now our bank account is almost gone and we are using the credit card AGAIN on things we shouldn't. I don't know how I'm going to pay them and it stresses me out. Also come Friday Phil gets paid but after house is paid and he gets his money and I get the food we have $67 for two weeks. OMG!!! On top of it all Anna sees the spending and she wants to go shopping and when I tell her we can't she gets upset. I don't want to fight anymore so I just don't fight it anymore. This is really stressing me out. I don't feel I'm getting anything accomplished at home and I am feeling very emotional this week. So yesterday I saw this article and I'm leaving it all in God's hands. He will get me (us) through this time. On the plus I have an interview for a Case worker job at our local Job and Family Service and I think I would really enjoy it......problem is my interview isn't until 6/26.....hmmmm So what do I do? Do I go to a fast food and start ASAP? If I get the job then ask to only work Saturdays til I can pay off the credit cards again or wait? I just don't want to screw the fast food place if I get this job......I'm so confused. I'm also afraid I'm going to gain stress weight (I'm notorious for it)....Have a great day!!!

ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!

If I want to see this weight come off, I really need to focus on my nutrition. My fitness is under control and I am just out of control with what I put into my mouth. I know what I am supposed to eat and how much of it. Instead yesterday, I had cheetos and cookies. Just way too much of it! Yesterday is in the past and today/this week is all new.

My goal is to get in all 5 small meals each day. Today, I snacked on 2 pieces of cheese danishes that definitely weren't a part of my planned meals for the day. I tried to compensate for those extra calories eaten, but the scale will let me know. I am finally home from work, about to head to bed and then back up to get in my workout and head back to work. What a life!

So far I've gotten in my workouts without procrastination. Today is abit on the slow side to getting around. I'm a bit sore so today is going to be an easier workout day. I'm about to get in my 24 min SI6 and then sometime take Gavin out for a nice walk. Thinking of walking to the school park near by then going for a further walk after so he naps for me. He isn't very nice when he's sleepy and cranky (sometimes he's fine though).

How are things going with you D? I'm going to find a ceiling fan for Anna later this week and get new batteries for my scale. If that doesn't change the crazy scale weights I get then I think I need a new one. HMMMMM

Have a wonderful day today!!

I have changed and about to get in my well needed workout. First I need to get some kind of food in my stomach. Yesterday, during my workout I started to get dizzy and I hope it doesn't happen again.

Today wasn't a good eating day for me, but I will be back on track tomorrow. I need to plan out my meals to make it happen. I have already taken out some boneless chicken breasts and salmon to cook tomorrow. Looking forward to the meals!

I'm sooooo sorry for your loss my friend. Know she is in a better place now. You are a fighter and a great and wonderful friend and cousin. Keep up the great work. The harder it is the more gratifying this will be. It is a day to day adventure that is for sure. How sweet you daughter made you a sandwich!! Awesome!!

I've been getting in my workouts atleast 5 days a week. I want to get 6 days so this month I'll focus on more smiley faces. I started giving myself small smiley faces to put the calendar each day I workout. Even if it is a walk - its something. My body likes this 146 area LOL it won't let me break it. I will though I will get it back in gear. I started my Slim in 6 routine again this week. Next week I'm going to ramp it up. I also need to work on going to bed earlier and getting up earlier in order to get my workouts in before Gavie wakes up. I've been busy putting my resumes out there the past few weeks. Our savings is almost gone so I really need to get something soon. I had another good interview but heard nothing. I wander what I'm doing wrong. O well.....worst case I will have to shut off the cable if I don't get a job soon.

Have a wonderful Sunday!! I'll talk to you later. We are going to go to my mom/dad's after dinner to help get their garden ready. We have some veggies to give them to plant that won't fit in our garden. I can't wait to get some fresh veggies. I wonder how easy lettuce is??? HMMM

These last couple weeks have been extremely tough for me mentally. Now that my cousin has been put to rest and at peace, I could mourn in my own way and move on. There are sooo many things that happen out of our control and we have to live with them. I am trying to get back to my normal self. I am extremely happy through this all, I have been able to keep my healthy eating in control. I definitely had a couple rough days, but great over all. Weigh in is tomorrow and I actually can't wait. This morning my daughter made me an egg sandwich. A turkey burger with scrambled eggs on a bagel thin, Mmmmmm! It totally hit the spot.

I am hanging in there and up to do it all again today. I am going to get in my workout, head to visit with my cousin and then go to work. I am not going to worry about my family and just my actions. As long as my cousin knows I am there for her through anything.

I stopped on the scale expecting a positive weight loss this morning. Instead it actually went up from yesterday. I am fighting through these 170's, but it's a really tough fight. This really shouldn't be so hard, but it definitely is. I needed something positive today after taking care of my cousin. It's really mentally draining and this is just the start.

I am soo tired and have been spending all of my down time with my cousin. It's really hard being the closest family member to Michelle because I am who she has. I have to see her every single day, so she knows I am there. I want her to know she's not alone. My family is being torn between my aunt and cousin because they are both in the hospital. The challenge is 1 is in NY and the other is close ti PA. I have a headache that comes and goes.

Yesterday, I was really sad, but today I have high hopes to my cousins recovery. She has a long road ahead of her, but I am starting positive. I went to work this morning, my sister and grandmother came to are her and now I am spending time at the hospital. I have to leave at 8p because we have to take home my grandmother. I might have energy to get in 60 min of a workout. Maybe!

So sorry for being MIA. I'm also sorry to hear about your cousin and Aunt. Timing is bad that is for sure. We are doing well here. I am not getting notified you have been posting so I didn't get on to talk.

I've been working out quite well this month. Last week I had a few hurtles to jump and didn't get my workouts in. It is so easy for me to say later when I don't get it in the morning and then not do it. Started again this week refocused and ready to go.

I do hope that things calm down for you soon. Gotta go Gavin is needing some help calming down. Talk to you tomorrow!

These last couple of days have been very long and mentally draining for me. I have been with my cousin who had a stroke on Wednesday. Then my aunt had a brain bleed and also ended up in the hospital on Wednesday. Our family is now torn between my aunt and cousin. Me being my cousins support has been spending the most time with her. I have to get back to work tomorrow because now I am really behind with my tasks. Today I was actually the saddest for me. I cried in the morning at work and then felt better once I saw my cousin. I left work early because I was no good at work. I just couldn't fake being happy. I do hope everyone is doing well.

Yesterday was a crazy day for me. I went to with as normal and then received a call from my cousins supervisor. She was rushed to the hospital and it concluded that she had a stroke. The first hospital ended up having to transfer her to a specialty hospital for stroke. The blood clot is in the left side of her brain that affects her speech. As well as the motion on her left side. She has made on and off progress throughout the night, but still but still has a long way to go. The good news right now is that it's a partial clot. They are trying to rectify the problem without surgery first. It was soooo stressful yesterday especially since I found out I was her emergency contact. I am not normally the one that has to be there with a family member speaking to the doctors and informing the family. Of course, I am heading back today to sit with her to comfort her as much as I can. I have to be her voice especially since she can't speak.

Once again I stayed out of the kitchen after dinner. I tracked everything, got in my workout and now it's fine to go to bed. I Ann still awake because I got in a nap and a late workout. My sleep pattern is way out of whack. Tomorrow is a new day to do it all over again.

This morning I decided to sleep in an extra hour instead of getting in my workout. This made me have to get one in tonight after work. I officially hate exercising after a long day at work. But have to say that I am proud that I got it in. Now I could go to bed feeling accomplished.

This morning I jumped on my elliptical and got in a 90 minute workout. Not sure where I got the energy from. Then from 9-10a, I had my session with my personal trainer Alison. She made me work for each calorie burned which is what I pay for. She is extremely encouraging. So, this morning I have already gotten in a double workout. Phew! Now I need to keep my eating under control.

Morning. Just woke up at 9 with my Gavie. I need to get to bed much sooner then I have been. I was sleeping so good last night that I didnt want to get up. I also took yesterday off. I was crampy all day pretty bad. Feeling better today. Took some pills in hopes it doesn't get worse today. Planning to work out today. I missed it yesterday. My butt cheeks were really sore too yesterday. Not to bad today.

Here's to a great day today. It's gotta be great either way it's my last final then summer break!

OMG, so glad you found your test!

My day went by so quickly. I spent my whole day at work, which was ridiculous, but at least productive. Now that I think about it, I saw my babies off to school and then I saw them in bed when I got home. Time is just going by so quickly. I have no idea why I am up so early, but my body has bounced awake. I am actually about to try and get my workout done and over with.

Im so happy you had a great day yesterday. Here's to another one today.

OMG yesterday I took my ICD Coding final. It took me alittle over 3 hrs to do. I saved it and went to attach it to the link and it wasn't there. I looked and looked and couldn't find it. I started to freak out. Then I still couldn't find it so I completely freaked out started to cry and was not happy. I called my mom and dad I finished the test but can't find it now so it will be a bit before I can get Gavin. About 10 min of looking more I found it. I was so thankful and releaved. Thursday is my CPT Coding final then I'm done for the summer!

Skipping my step workout today. My toosh hurts LOL. Going to do my Slim in 6 dvd instead. Have a great day today! I'm off to grab a bite to eat.

Happy Tuesday. Got my step workout in this morning. Getting hubby used to me working out again. I tracked my food yesterday and I was in range but on the high end. Today I'm going to try to be on the low side.

This morning I measured myself and will again at the end of the month. I still need to take my picture. I want to see if there's a noticable change or not. I'm not going to beat myself up this month if theres not a big enough loss because I've added weights in this week. This is another picture moment. I would like to see my bat arms get a tad smaller. LOL

Today's my final for ICD Coding. I'm so excited to! !!! Then Thursday is my CPT Coding final then I'm done for the summer. emoticon

Have a great day!

One thing that I noticed was that I have to write everything down to help stay on track. If I don't I notice to overeat without even realizing it. Once I stop measuring I automatically end up putting too much on my plate. I am actually about to head back downstairs to see how I did today. I write down what I want to eat for each meal daily. No excuses!! If I want the scale to move in the right direction, this is what I have to do. I'm determined to drop 2 pounds or more for my next weigh in. It's not going to be easy, but I need to keep making progress.

This morning I am waking up proud with having an awesome day yesterday. I finally feel somewhat back in control. I couple weeks ago I was weak to temptation. Then I went through the frustrated/depressed phase. Now I have gotten the wake up call to get back on track. I wish it would have come quicker, but it is what it is.

I think Phil's going to be working outside so may as well do what I want. Plus I need alittle more burn becuz we ate at a local chinese restaurant last night.

I am not sure if I told you, but I have challenged myself to get in 2500 workout minutes this month. It's really going to be easy, but I think I have a good plan in place. If I workout 60 minutes twice a day, One in the morning and again in the evening I will reach my goal. I am going to try and get in more than that on my days off when I have more time. We shall see if my body holds up. So far so good! My tracker will show my progress. Wish me luck and now it's time to get moving for the morning.

Had a slight change today;;;;;;I was going to mow but needed oil so I had to weed until Phil got home with some oil. So it wasn't all unproductive. Finished mowing in the rain too. Took me longer today since the yard was wet and high I had to mow it twice. Once at a high level and once at the normal level. Now just chillin with Gavin. Phil is up in the bathroom working on it still. Putting up the trim now. It is so close to being done he just needs to finish. This is where he normally stops and moves on to another project. I'm not letting him though this time. It must get done. After it's done I'm thinking of starting to sit Gavin on the potty. He wakes up pretty dry and he hides to go poop now. School is almost over for me and Anna will be out 6/3. They have to make up a few days this year. I had an interview Wed but I haven't heard anything so I don't think I got it. O well more time with the baby and it's almost summer....fun in the sun since he LOVES it outside.

Hope your day is going well. I need to get in 2 miles today since I missed yesterday. Sun is shining so I may just add another blanket and take Gavin out maybe he will fall asleep. I'll wait til 3 though since Phil just went upstairs.......

This morning I got up and completed my C25k walk/jog program. I made it to 2 miles in 25 minutes and I think that's amazing. I was moving and actually running at a faster pace already. I have just completed week #1 of my training to run a 3k. WooHoo! I Ann off to a good weigh in on Monday. Now the challenge is to stay on track.

You are doing an awesome job D!!! Don't sweat the set back they aren't big ones and you know what they are. You need to be able to have a treat here and there.

I'm so excited today. I saw my calendar and have quite a bit of smiley faces in April. Can't wait to see May!! Today I got in my workout and have been watching my food pretty good. I bought the Sneaky Cef book to see if I can get Gain to eat more foods and more veggies without knowing. I've only started to read it but so far it is so my son.

Here's to a great evening.

This journey just isn't easy! There are just soo many temptations that you have to fight. The good thing is that I am a fighter, but tired of having to recover when I have a set back. I'm doing awesome with my fitness, but nutrition is going like a roller coaster. This is why the scale is starting to do the same.

Today was such a long day at work, I am glad that I didn't save my workout. I went in for 10a and didn't get home until after 11p. It was long, stressful but productive. Now it's time to head to bed and start over tomorrow. What a life! :)

This morning I woke up feeling good about yesterday. There are times when I wake up depressed because I know I didn't make the best choices the previous day. These last couple of days I have been on track and holding myself accountable. I have been driving back and forth between Alex's school and work. Just had meetings and then lunch with him. It was good and he's doing amazing in school. Now I am about to head back to work.

Just got my workout in and I feel wonderful!! Got a great sweat going!! Now cooling down then a shower to get the day going.

I forgot to tell you that I have an interview tomorrow morning at a local business as Purchasing Clerk. Figure may as well do what I know and bring in some money. I was hoping to get through the summer but it is what it is. I would love to have some extra money again. I'll keep you posted. The person has given a month notice so I should know by the end of this week if they chose me or someone else. I told hubby even if I make the same as I made at ET I still win because they take city tax out and ET didn't and I don't have to drive 30 min each way.....this would only be 5-10 max depending on traffic and lights.

You are doing emoticon !! I'm so proud of you!! Take it one day at a time my friend. It is really working for you!! Don't let that number this week get you down.....you were sick. And while you were sick you DIDN'T gain!! That is a win for sure!!

Sorry I've been MIA this weekend. The family took a mini vacation to Columbus. It is about 2 hrs south west of us. We stayed at the Cherry Valley Lodge (very nice) and went to the indoor waterpark that is attached to the hotel. The kids had a blast so this mommy was happy too. A bigger plus is that Phil and I didn't really fight (we argue a lot). I peeked today at the scale and I didn't damage my progress. I so thought I did but I've been on the move the whole time. Gavin LOVES to walk outside and all over so to keep that little one happy we walked walked walked and walked some more. We were all over that hotel Friday night, Saturday all day, and after we checked out Sunday morning we drove to the Columbus Zoo and went to see most of it and the Aquarium. We walked for for 4.5 hours on Sunday. I'm about to go and shut the gate upstairs so Gavin can't come down without Phil and get my workout in. He woke up at 6am and came to see me. I was to tired so I put him in our bed and he fell back asleep. When my hand went numb I put him back in his bed. I should have stayed up but nope I went back to bed. Now I feel alittle sluggish. This workout will perk me up.

Here's to a great day my friend!! After my workout I'll come see you at drop a bad habit!!

Rock on girlie!!

Today I am off and for some reason have bounced awake at 5a. Goal is to stay on track with my nutrition and to get in my needed workout. Nothing really special going on and I really do hope your doing alright and just busy.

My morning had started off very week by getting in 80 min on the elliptical. I have been up since 3:30a because I feel asleep at around 8p last night. I got 7 hours of sleep, which is mute than enough. I didn't even hear the phone ring when Harold was heading home. I was dead to the world, which means I got a good sleep. Now it's time to get ready for work. Wishing you a great day!

I woke up saying that I'm going to take this journey one day at a time!! I'm not even mad at the number on the scale. Normally the only number that counts is for my weigh in day on Monday. I don't know why I let it get me down, but I refuse to give up. Breakfast is calling my name. I'm keeping my 5 meals today nice and simple and about to pack them to head out the door. I tried to get in my workout this morning but decided to sleep for another hour. I promise to get one in tonight when I return before heading to bed. My entire family is actually still sleeping, which is strange for me. Normally either my son or daughter is awake. They must have really been tired! My poor babies. Chat with you later.

Everyone says to focusing on your end goal, which is great and all. What I noticed is just focus on one day at a time, which turns into one week at a time, which turns into a 2 pound loss. LOL. I have a personal trainer Alison that has given me a nutritional plan that's obviously working. I just need to hold myself accountable with what I put into my mouth and stick with it. I'm always talking about CONSISTENCY, CONSISTENCY and more CONSISTENCY!! Without it, I won't get any where.

Today, I looked at my photo gallery on my page which I haven't done in a long time. in 2009 my motivation was taking pictures. I couldn't wait to get 10 pounds lighter to take another picture of my success. So what did I do? I took a picture in a tight shirt to be able to show my progress. Throughout this journey, we have to find different ways to motivate ourselves. Then you realize how well you are actually doing even though the weight doesn't come off as quickly as you want.

I do hope your having a wonderful day!!

You have made it this far with school and will be done before you know it. I just love busy body boys and Gavin is definitely one that loves to keep moving. My son is soon going to be 9 and once the sun is shining he's awake. The good pay now is that he knows how to entertain himself until we wake up. Once in awhile he will sleep in and shock me.

I as well need to get back focused on my nutrition. This is when I normally fall off and kick myself in the butt. I have lost 16 pounds this year so far and I need to keep my goal in mind. This journey is at the hard part right now for me. I could either continue having success or go backwards. Hopefully, I see more success, but I need to get back in the right mindset. It's sooo hard!

Class went well last night. We got out alittle early so I stuck around and did some homework while I was there. It is harder this semester with Gavin since he is more active and wants more of my attention. When this semester is over (finals are 2nd week of May) I'm off til middle of August. I have to see what classes I can take in the Fall. Looks like I won't be done until next May :0( It's ok though. Better if I can find some work that is part time (7-12pm) is what I'm looking for but will take full time if it is in the medical field. Gavin let me sleep but got cold (he won't stay still and uncovers through the night) at 4am so I got up to cover him up. He decided to wake up 745am today then. LOL Could be worse could be 6am.

Got in my step dvd section 1. I think I'm ready to add on but I don't want to over do it. I'm afraid if I over do it I'll stop again and I don't want that. So far I'm loving my workout. Next week I'm adding segment 2. I never did get past that one so I may have to do it 2 weeks before doing the whole dvd. Playing it by ear.

Not looking forward to weigh in this week. I know I over ate big time on Easter. And I need to quit putting my fingers in Gavin's Easter basket. LOL Great job getting in 10,000 steps. Was that all at once or an all day tracking?

How was class last night? Wow, you are definitely close to the end this year. If ii remember correctly, your going to take the summer off? Did you have finals already? I do hope that Gavin let you sleep last night.

My night ended with me getting in my 10,000 steps on my treadmill. My legs felt like logs after I was done, but was proud to have accomplished it. The scale is one again being very stubborn, but I am not going to let it get to me. It just wouldn't move and doors around the same 2 numbers. Grrrr.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Sorry you didn't sleep well last night. I am glad I can't hear when my garbage truck comes around. How is school going? Can you believe that the school year is almost done? The kids are excited. Now I am planning their summer break.

I just realized that I am 42 pounds away from my goal. It sounds far away, but I am determined to reach it. I have to soon but on my swim suit when we go on vacation in July. I hate swim suits because I just don't look good. The challenge that I have is that I love getting in the water. With that said, I have a short goal in mind. I have to get as close to my goal weight by mid July. Wish me luck!

Hope your having a wonderful day!

I didn't sleep well last night. Gavin decided to wake me up at 4am. The garbage truck woke me up at 8am. I should have stayed up but rolled over ubtil Gavin got up again at 9am. Got my coffee and breakfast in so I'm getting ready now to get my step dvd in. Last night after dinner we ended up walking down to pay utilities and then to the library to drop off a book Anna was reading then back home. 2 miles......walked mediocre speed.

Have a great day today. Are you off too to spend with your kidders laat day of break?

I am rolling out of bed wondering if I should get in an early workout. No Excuses! I hear my kids downstairs enjoying their last day of Spring break. Yesterday, they went to see Rio 2 with hubby and loved it. How you had and have a good day.

Michelle, glad you had such a wonderful Easter. We drove into NY to spend the day with family. We got back home by 7:30p and then relaxed for the rest of the day. The weather is also beautiful here and we enjoyed every moment of it. I actually did my strength training routine outside. I brought my free weights and workout mat outside and got in my 60 min routine. It was actually an awesome routine.

Hi D! Hope you had a great Easter. I over ate as usual LOL. How did your workout go the other day? Today I got in 20 min of my step dvd. It is getting better hopefully by the end of the week I can add on.

Hope you have a nice day today. The weather here in Ohio is just wonderful. We have been outside all afternoon. Hoping that Gavin falls back to sleep for a bit longer on his nap. He usually needs atleast an hour to make the day a good day. We have a speech and hearing evaluation for him on May 1st at 11am up at Akron Children's Hospital. I think he is fine and that he just chooses not to talk. He says some words but not as many as the doctor thinks he should.

Talk to you later. I'm off to read some more of my homework that is due tomorrow while I have a chance.

Today, I am going to try and get in a workout and see how my body reacts. I really need to get moving again because I know I need the balance. The balance between exercise and nutrition. Without one or the other, my weight loss gets harder.

Sorry, the other day was rough for you and I hope that today was better. How was Gavin today? I know having a fussy toddler is absolutely no fun.

I am still not 100%, but feeling a bunch better. I can't wait to actually get in a good workout. The last time I tried I almost passed out. So, I am taking my time before pushing myself again. I have the next week off from work and I am going to enjoy the time to myself and with my family.

What a rough day today. Gavin just kicks my butt when he gets in these pissed off moods and just screams and cries. I can't take it. I'm super glad that somehow I get the strength to just suck in most of the anger and just not give in to his craziness.

Today I didn't get a workout in however I did mow the yard today. It looks so much nicer and greener now. Loved the smell of the fresh cut grass. I actually missed it.

Here's to a great day tomorrow and a nice weigh in Saturday. Night my friend!! Glad you are feeling better!!
