Morning!! What a beautiful morning. Not sure who is up but I hear someone. Gavin had a night terror last night and nothing I can do to sooth him out of it til I turned on our light on very dim until he realized he was with me in my room. Took alittle while but he is still sleeping now. It was probably because he didn't go to bed til really late last night. We had a fire out back and company over til 11pm. He normally goes to bed at 930. He hasn't had one for quite some time.

I mowed the yard yesterday.....atleast 1/2 of it or alittle more then half. I got the front sides and 1/2 the back. I had to mow the back on high and then low because I couldn't mow til yesterday and it poured so much this week that the ground/grass was still wet. I then raked all the clumpy grass into piles and weeded around the garage and the fire pit. Then I did the ice cold water challenge my SIL called me out. I'm not donating to ALS though I'm donating to Alzheimer's because my grandpa has it. It was fun though. And I got in 30 min of a wii boxing game before Gavin woke up yesterday. So I got a pretty good burn in yesterday. My eating wasn't to bad. I thought by eating a turkey brawt it would be healthier......it may be but not the sodium. If I eat a lot of sodium I automatically gain weight. My body LOVES sodium. LOL

Not sure what I have on the agenda for today but it will be a good day anyway because I'm off. I finally got word back from school saying they are extending my hours and I'm good to go now all I have to do is go on and claim my financial aid and buy my book. My DIL has one of the books I need and has offered to lend it to me. I'm super stoked about that so now I just need to buy one. My classes starts Tuesday :( I thought it wasn't til Thursday oops I may have to bite the bullet and buy the book from the book store if we get homework.

Well I'm off to try to clean my email up so I can actually see what I want to see.....getting to much junk lately. Well have a great day D!! Enjoy that vacation this week. I know your first day will be great!!!

Morning D!! You should be proud!!! I'm not sure what I'm going to do today. I got to sleep in this morning. I was hoping for a little longer quiet but JW knocked on the door and Lady went off and wouldn't stop and woke Gavie up. O well........Today is my Birthday and I have a sick husband. He is acting like he's ding and all he has is a cold. All I know is that later tonight we are going to my mom and dads for a cookout and birthday cake.

O I forgot to weigh in this morning......so I guess I better go and get my day started. Talk to you soon. Don't sweat this week and just look forward to next week!!! I'm so happy for you!

I do hope that everything works out with school this semester. Sounds like such a drag and that they are making it more difficult than it has to be. Glad that you are keeping yourself active. That's all that matters! Are you going to have to get a new remote?

I am excited and will be starting my new job officially on September 1st. I have a meeting scheduled on the 26th to meet everyone. Plus, I have requested 6 days off the week of the 23rd. This way I get a break before I start my new job. My official last day at this hotel will be the 31st.

emoticon on no snacking!!!

Still hit and miss with my workouts. I went to workout the other morning and my wii remote died completely. Go figure. I did go outside and walked with Gavin last night and the night before.

I went to school again today and got all my papers in and now I just have to wait to see how it goes. I have been put on hold since I have over the amount of credit hours allotted. They've changed the rule now that you can't just go to school forever. Now you have so many credit hours to get a degree. I had to appeal it stating I already have an Associate Degree in Applied Business and have returned for a separate Associate Degree in Applied Science. Hope I got it all correct and I hear back soon......school starts 8/25 (for me),

When do you start your new job?

Wow, another night without snacking. Hubby got home around 10p and brought me a bag of Ruffle Chips. I told him to take it back downstairs. I refused to even open the bag. Now that took willpower. I loooove chips& popcorn.

Hope your doing well .

When I wake up hungry, I know I did something right last night. I fought the temptation to snack late night. Yesterday morning I got in a 30 min Turbo Fire DVD. Then after I got home from work I had a 60 min session with my trainer. 2 awesome routines and I need to get in another morning workout today.

You are sooo right! We have dive this before and well definitely make it to the end. I just know, one day I will be celebrating reaching my goal. I am just making this journey harder than I have to. Late night snacking is but going to beat me.

Hope your day ended well and today is even better.

Exactly right!! Those chips aren't beating you up so you shouldn't either. I'm up and getting coffee. I'm running a little later then I wanted but o well it is what it is. Gavin didn't wake up last night he must of been comfy but Phil decided to keep snoring in my ear OMG!! LOL I don't have to be to work til 930 today because of an attorney meeting and the office I work in is one big room and the boss man doesn't want me there (not been there long enough I guess to trust). So anyway I'm getting my coffee and a small workout then shower. Good thing I work 10 min from home now :0)

I saw a saying on SP "Nothing changes if nothing changes" I like it. We will keep pushing and we will succeed. Look how far you have come so far. You've done it once you can do it again. You'll get it just like I will. I am just thankful I haven't seen 149 or higher. So the small changes I have made are working it is the other changes I need to do that are kicking my butt. What workout did you do this morning?

Well I'm off to get my workout in. Talk to you after I go to school. Have a great day!!!

Enjoy your snuggle time with Gavin, lol. What are your plans for today? I am actually about to get up to get in my morning workout routine before work. I have to stay focused and not beat myself up over my ruffles chips that I ate last night.

I think you are doing the right thing. My own opinion is that they took alittle to much advantage of you at times. I'm glad you will have a set schedule and you will be able to create a great routine for yourself. YAY YOU!!!

I'm off to bed. I'm pretty sure Gavin will be up early and prob in my bed soon.......lol

Night my friend and congrats again!!

Sounds like you at least got everything under control. Good luck with keeping Gavin in his bed tonight. I have a feeling he's going to be right by your side again come morning time, lol.

I going to actually be working the front desk night audit, which is the 11p-7a shift. I am just looking forward to steady hours and my work day actually ending. I could shut off my cell phone and not worry about getting a call from work. I could just go home and not worry about a problem happening at work.

I broke the news to my boss today and tomorrow, I will be breaking the news to my co-workers. I don't think that's going to be easy, but it has to be done.

I love it when he comes to snuggle with me. We'll see if he sleeps in his bed today or not later. Didn't get all the paperwork around but I will before bedtime. Anna is going to babysit for me but she is unaware I am going to school after work tomorrow. Work was ok. I almost got 4 hours in today but the boss man was there and sitting where I needed to be. I did get a small workout this morning (Jessica Smith's 12 min power walk). Still may get to go outside for a walk with Gavin the sun is out now. Better then nothing at all.

I'm so glad things went well for you at work giving them the news. What are you going to be doing now? How are things going with you? How are you doing with snacking today? Did you get a workout in yet?

Sounds like Gavin is just doing what makes him comfortable, lol. I miss those days when my kids just wanted to sleep close to me. Enjoy every moment while you can. How was work today? Did you get your paperwork completed for school? How about a workout?

I just told my boss I was leaving. He wished me nothing but the best and asked if I could stay on until the 30th weekend. It went a lot better than what I thought. Just keep praying that everything works out for the better at my new job.

That's awesome! I will pray everything will turn out as it should! I'm so excited for you. Listen to your heart it will help you make the right decision. You've been unhappy so long at your current job so I wish you well!!! I gotta get movin or I'll be late for work.......I shouldnt be either since Gavin wanted to crawl in bed at 5am and Phil told me to put him back to bed......guess whos in our bed on my side???? Yupp Gavie! So that didn't work out to well for him anyway. He still gets to have the bed hog in bed with him LOL.

Have a great day!! I'll be back after work......

Ya I'm good. Just busy I guess. Gavin keeps me on my toes and he doesn't like it when I get on the computer anymore. He wants more of my attention now.....Fine with me he will only be little for a short time.

He is 2-1/2 his bday is Jan 31. I will be sending him to prek next yr but wasn't sure if he would go to "school" this yr for his speech therapy if he needs it. He doesn't talk like most kids his age and didn't pass the Akron Children's speech evaluation but Phil's insurance won't cover therapy go figure.

It rained all day today. Never stopped for long. In fact it is lighting now and still raining. Good thing Gavie likes storms.

I know what you mean "fighting through the journey" it isn't much fun when you don't see progress. I'm with you. I have been fighting 145-147 now for forever it feels. I guess it is better then seeing anything higher. I'm still pluggin along. Gavie woke up in the middle of the night again last night and crawled in bed with me so I didn't get up when I wanted to squeeze in a small workout. I don't tell him I won't be home because I find that is when he crawls in bed. Of course Phil felt the urge to say something last night. He doesn't know when Gavie wakes up and doesn't bother him. I'm the one that has to get up in the morning to get to work. Even though I work part time I still need to sleep at night. O well.....here's to another day.

I hope work is going better for you. Can you take some time off to recharge or step down from your position but keep your job? Night D! I'm wooped......had a rough time getting Gavie to go to bed. I'll talk to you soon.

Hey Michelle, it's great to hear from you and at least know your alright. It's awesome that you are going back to school to finish your degree. Woohoo! It will be such an accomplishment to achieve one of your goals. How old is Gavin now? Has he started school our are you thinking off starting him in pre school?

I am here fighting through this journey that just isn't easy. I am so tired of struggling and not being strong enough to stay on track with my eating. I have been stuck in the 170's for the last 2 months. Then my work life has gone from bad to worse. The only good part of my life is my family. They are the reason why I keep moving.

I was thinking of sitting down the team. What does is having a leader who just isn't motivated anyone. I have lost my inspiration to keep fighting. Plus, I could count or active members on one hand.

Hi D!! I'm here just crazy busy and super stressed. School is about to start for Anna and I think I have everything she needs to get started. I need to call the school for Gavin to have him get a speech evaluation.....who knows he may be going to school too sooner then I thought. Gonna play that one by ear. Tomorrow I'm getting my papers all in order for school and signing up for 2 more classes and I will graduate May 2015 with a Certificate and Associates Degree in Medical Billing. Not really thrilled with my job currently. Love how close it is and that I get to work in the morning but it is getting boring. I also like how laid back they are about the clothes we wear. Unfortunately I am getting done really early and not getting the full hours I need so I'm getting a bit stressed out about the money. I need to just let it go. I will get through this.

I got in a nice walk with Gavin today. Tomorrow I need to mow so that will be my workout unless we get a walk in again. Monday morning I'm getting a workout in before my shower for work....this way I got it in and I'm more ap to stay on track and not miss my workout yet again. So I'll be back to let you know how tomorrow goes.

I hope everything is going well for you. Snacking is hard to break. Grapes are nice crunchy snacks.......you can even freeze them to get them cold and crunchy. I better get to bed.

Night and I'll talk to you soon.

Work has been sooooooo stressful, I am trying so hard for my weight to not be affected. I promised myself that I would see 175 any more. Last weigh in I saw 174, so I need to keep it going. Now I need to be lower than that by staying on track this weekend. Weigh in day is on Monday.

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.

Yesterday was one of my worst days at work. I will be back at it again today, but I am just pissed and really disappointed.

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'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.
