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?

emoticon to Anna on her many milestones!! Totally wishing her much more success in the future. You sound like such a proud Mom, as you should be! emoticon

I totally can't wait to get home to head straight to bed. My 7am person called because she's going to be running late. I forgot to ask her how late because I'm soooo tired. I didn't get much sleep yesterday and I was totally feeling it throughout my shift tonight. I can't wait to see her face come around the corner. I'm going to have to call my mother on my drive home to stay awake.

My weekend is going well today. I took Anna to the DMV to take her permit test. She finally said she wanted to start driving so we went to see if she can pass the first time. She did so we now have a teenage driver in the house. I'm getting her graduation decorations now. I have all her plates and napkins and possibly all of the table cloths. Now I'm picking up colored pencils from the Dollar General's for $1 each. We need 20 packs of 12 for all the tables. I also need to get 10 packs of the paper money to fill in the centerpieces and then somehow get balloons to go in them too. LOL I will need to go to the hall and figure out a table for the food and gifts and memory pictures and things to leave out so people can see them. I will be putting some of her art work out too. But for now I'm picking up the décor. Once I have them all I will start on the silverware. I will post a picture as soon as I find them on the computer. I downloaded all my pics from my phone today so now I have to look for it.

Mom and dad bought us a gift certificate to go to Uncle Premo's for Christmas so we ended up going today. It was delicious. I was going to get a Salmon Salad but I decided on Eggplant Parm since I never get to have any. Since I overate today I will do better tomorrow. I need to walk yet for atleast 10 min.

Talk to you soon!!!

I didn't get around to making my oatmeal, but plan on having some when I get home. I have my sons game at 8am, eat breakfast, sleep and then off to Ross for a couple hours. I've prepped my juices for tomorrow, which will make it easier to just grab & go. No excuses!!

I'm going to be soooooo tired because I didn't get much sleep yesterday before coming into work. I'll then be going straight to my sons game and then work. I plan on squeezing in sleep before going to my part time job, but we'll see how that works. Then I'll have to head back in for a couple hours after that.

How's your weekend going? Mine is non-stop.

As of tomorrow, I am going back juicing. I have prepped and now I have to just stick with it. I plan on eating 1 to 2 healthy meal and juicing the rest of the day along with my veggie soup. About to make a a couple cups of oatmeal to have ready to just warm up.

Great job getting in a nice workout on your treadmill! I normally walk at my lunch break outside just to get away from the office and freshen my mind for the rest of the day. I don't know why I stopped but I did and now I've decided to start up again. Only thing is it is FREEZING outside now and the Dr.'s treadmill is really loud. LOL Better then nothing I guess. I plan on tomorrow to walk again but I'll prob walk while everyone is out to lunch then eat my lunch. That way I can be noisy and not bother people.

Cleaning day today. I also need to pay the bills (bummer) since it is my day off. I don't have any real plans for the day so I guess I'll just play with Gavin and clean house again. It is a never ending battle for sure.

I'll be back later. Gonna check the laundry now and see what is for lunch. Gavin is still sleeping but he wet the bed around 630am and then fell outta my bed before 8am. I hope he doesn't fall out again. He wanted to sleep in my bed so I said ok but he is a bed hog so I've been up since 745 picking up his toys. Spoiled kid. LOL

emoticon with getting yourself moving during lunch break. I couldn't never workout while at work.

I as well got myself moving yesterday. I took out my stress on the treadmill and it actually felt great. I wonder why I actually stopped exercising because I love the feeling at the end of a workout. I know that I've changed my eating habits big time, but I actually need to start calculating my calories again. I need to make sure I'm still not over eating.

Hi D! Hope things are going well for you and your family. I've been gone for awhile again. So sorry. I just get caught up with life and don't get online much. I have downloaded the SP app so maybe I will get on more with it on my phone. I need to clean my computer it has to be plugged in (need a new battery) and heats up quick so I don't get on much.

I've had great intensions and let life get in the way as always. It is time for me and my happiness which includes getting healthy and in shape and debt free!! I don't know what it is but I feel like 2016 is going to be a great year! I have a few new goals this year to get done or in order and start up again.

D: I found a brownie recipe on line I'd like to try. I will have to look for it and post it here later.

There is something about starting a New Year. I see it as starting over and it's time to get back on track. The 1st was the first day in a long time in which I kept my eating clean. It's all about just keeping on track and knowing what not to eat. I just loooooove junk way too much, but I need to get myself back in control.

I just wish I could just stop and do nothing. Today I stayed home to try and rest. I am still feeling sick, but hoping tomorrow I will be feeling a little better.

Alex's basket ball game was fun today. He had gotten so much more confident and I really enjoy watching him play.

I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. Just people with attitude are driving me crazy. I am done with working in a hotel with broken promises. Everyone wants to say something will be done, but nothing gets accomplished. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for a change. Of course nothing has happens and I am frustrated. I try not to get frustrated with my situation, but I can't help it.

Mission accomplished, I got some oranges and apples before heading to the desk at work. I have them right behind me to remind me to grab them instead of a bag of chips. I'm not going to wait to bring in the New Year to get back on track.

Yesterday, I was sooo thankful that I was able to sleep and sleep and sleep some more. My kids got home from school, gave me kisses, told me about their days and then let me go right back to sleep. I looove my family soooooo much!! Hubby then brought home dinner at around 5:45pm and that's when I got out of bed.

I'm going to be stuck on the 3rd shift until I quit. The guy who I was training decided to quit this morning because he just couldn't hang. He was just too weak!

I was thinking about going back to basics again and buying healthy choice meals. When I first started, this helped me to get my body to eat smaller portions. Then I was thinking that I just need to cook and prep my meals again. The 2nd option is healthier, but I don't always have the time these days. What should I do?

Work, family and sleeping has really taken up a lot of my time. Every second I find time to sleep, I jump at it. I'm thankful that my family understands that my night time is during the daytime. They totally let me sleep and unless they really need something. There is still talk with me going to the morning shift, but I haven't really mentioned it to anyone. I'm trying not to get frustrated and just know when the time is right it will all work out.

Ice Cream and Ruffle Chips are now my danger foods. Hubby keeps bringing them to me and just don't have the willpower to say no. The kids will love to eat them and so will the dog, lol. I really don't like being fat and you will think that I will be able to get my act together. This journey has become extremely hard for me and I could only blame myself.

My doctor took me off my iron pills, but I think I need to go back on them. She wanted to check my blood levels after being off them for a couple of months. I know one of the side affects with having low iron is tiredness. I'm definitely feeling it and fighting sleep daily. Yesterday I got 6 hours before the kids got home and then another 2 hours before heading to my daughters soccer game. My eyes can't wait until I could crash when I get home.

I'm still struggling to get my butt back in the healthy routine. One day at a time and I know I will get it together.

These last couple of days I feel as though I could sleep for days. I definitely got in my 8 hours of sleep last night, bit I feel as though I still want to sleep. What does that mean? Well, I have to keep moving. I work both jobs today and have to find the energy to keep going.

I got in an awesome 60 minute workout on my treadmill. That was a HUGE start for me to get back on track. I have juiced today and actually stayed away from the Halloween candy. I ate 2 meals instead of only 1, but I'm still a work in progress. Tomorrow is a new day and I'm thinking about making a delicious veggie soup.

Yesterday I got my 8 hours of sleep, but my body is still exhausted. My bed has been calling my name all night and I'm hoping that my last hour goes by quickly. Kids are off from school today and I'm praying that they let me sleep. Normally, they are totally understanding and try their best to let me get a good nights rest. They pretty much do their own thing.

I really need to start exercising. I have thought about when I will actually be able to squeeze it in with my busy days. I will have to get in my routine on days that I only work 1 job or off from both. I'm actually going to put in a reminder in my calendar. Let's see if the helps to get me back on track. I am also really considering going back to juicing. I need to do something and now is the time to start a new month fresh.

Tonight I overslept and didn't wake up until 11pm when I was suppose to be to work. I thought I was dreaming about my alarm clock going off, lol. I need to buy an actual alarm clock instead of using my phone. This will make me actually get out of bed to turn it off vs. just hitting a button on my phone.

I am lucky that I am an organized person because having a 2nd job takes a lot of energy. My body still needs to get use to working off of less sleep. I find myself getting tired, but learning how to work through it. The good thing is that I don't eat as much, which I am hoping pays off weight wise.

I see you completed your first day of 21 day fix. How did you like it? What other DVD well you compare the routine to?

Let me know your thoughts on the 21 day fix dvd's once you get started. I'm a DVD fan and possibly something new will kick off my new routine that's well needed. I'm here at work trying to stay awake because I just didn't get enough sleep today. I'm sooo proud of my daughter because she put her mind to creating her Halloween costume and she completed it yesterday with a little help and guidance. Not sure if you heard of the show on Cartoon Network called Steven Universe? She's going to be the little girl called Connie. it's such a cute outfit. She made the top & skirt, an eye patch and the red cape. Then we purchased blue leg ins and boots. She has done an awesome job to mimic the picture she was following. She found how to do everything online.

My son lost his soccer game tonight 3-0, which was a tough loss for him. He totally hates to lose and takes it extremely hard. He normally gets over it by morning after he gets a good nights rest. I just hate to see him down and hard on himself. He always tries sooo hard.

Glad your daughter loves soccer. It's great to watch. Enjoy!!
I have been down still. I have been feeling better Wednesday so I took Gavin out for a mile walk and found I still wasn't ready for big wirkouts. I also walked 1/2 of what I normally do at lunch time Thursday abd my normal walk on Friday's lunch just took alittle longer. Going to start working out again on Monday. I actually miss it. LOL
My ex mother in law lent me her 21 day fix dvds so I'm going to try them and eat as good as I can cuz I dont have the containers.
Hope you have a good day today

Yesterday was an awesome day to just rest and recoup since I really didn't have anything planned. Today is all about getting things done around the house before the kids get home from school. Then I head into work this evening.

Today I was able to get around 7 hours of sleep, but I still feel as though I didn't get enough. I felt amazing when I first woke up but now I'm starting to feel tired already. This is what happens when I work 10 days straight at work. I'm totally looking forward to my days off Wednesday & Thursday. I have a feeling that my boss is going to ask me for a favor on next weeks schedule and I'm not sure if I want to do it. I might be thinking like this because I'm tired.

Kids are doing amazingly well!! My daughter is looooving playing soccer and is getting better and better as the season goes on. Today she scored a goal and for some reason I keep missing them. Today, I decided to take a nap before coming into work instead of going to her late game that ended at 9p. How are your little ones doing? Even though Anna is no longer little, lol.

I do hope you feel better soon Michelle!! Glad that you were able to use yesterday as a rest day. I'm sure your body totally needs it to be able to recover. Give yourself time to feel better and then you could add in more exercise.

My 2nd job currently is part time and I've only worked 2 days last week and this week I'm scheduled 3 days. Wednesday I go in and I actually can't wait. I enjoy the change of pace of learning something completely new.

Been fighting a cold for a week and now been down for 3 days. I so hope being lazy today helps me feel better tomorrow. I so don't feel like doing much at all now.

My life has become extremely busy!! Between work at the hotel, then at Ross Department Store, running around with the kids, spending time with hubby and finding time to sleep. Yesterday was the first day in a long time that I was actually able to get a full 8 hours of sleep with very little interruption. What's interesting is that I'm totally enjoying my crazy days because each day goes by quickly. No time to just sit around and do nothing.

Nutritional wise, I'm still not doing very well.

How are you doing?

Did I tell you I got the job at a department store at night? I filled out my paperwork the other day and waiting to set up orientation. I have realized by having this 2nd job, I will miss being home with my kids. Such is life because I want more money! So, I have to work to make it. I will see after a month or 2 if it's all worth it.

How are you doing?

Michelle, sound like your also doing well!!

I'm trying to get back focused more and more each day/month. I don't like myself this weight and it's time to fight again. I feel that I've given up these last couple of months and I'm definitely not a quitter. I need to get it together!! I'm going to keep telling myself this until I'm successful. emoticon

Tonight was another accomplished night without snacking on junk. I'm actually starving and can't wait to head home to eat breakfast. Hubby makes me cream of wheat every morning to start off my day. He's the best!

Good job D! How'd yesterday go?

I am still walking at lunch but this week just is crazy plus my cramps are way worse this month then any before. They actually woke me up one night and I had to find the heating pad. Wished I had 2 but high got me back to sleep.

Gotta get ready for work now but definitely time to get my morning workouts in again. I bring a water bottle to work now and I try to drink 1 full onr at work (equals 4 cups). Tonight I have to plan the dinners and shop for my granddaughter bday present. Tomorrow is a new day and week to start off!!

Talk to you after work! Have a great day!!

There is a lot going on in my house lately, especially with the kids going back to school. There are a lot of after school activities that I need to keep up with and my days just go by extremely quickly. I have to go to bed as soon as I get home or I wouldn't get any sleep. The kids get home by 3:15p and then I'm going until I head into work. I hope to be able to get back to take a nap, but that doesn't always work out. Life!! I need to start focusing on me again and making time to exercise and cook healthy meals. I can do this, but it's just hard!!

Can't believe September is almost over already. Where do the days go???

Anna is going to her Senior Homecoming with her girlfriend this Saturday. I am sad and happy at the same time. This year is going to be a roller coaster of emotions for me for sure. She got a brochure for a college yesterday in the mail. She is thinking of going into an Art major of some sort. Not sure what kind it is still alittle early. She is doing some research on Art Therapy.

Not doing to bad with my workouts. Adding step workouts here and there and keeping my walking going every day I work at lunch. Excited about keeping that up since my bday. I think I finally got it together. Now to just follow through with the eating.....and no pop. I really like my Pepsi. Little steps. I'm atleast walking and planning my meals again. I don't drink pop everyday either. I increased my water this week too. In fact I forgot my water bottle at work. :0(

Hope you are doing well. Enjoy your evening. I'm off tomorrow so I will be cleaning in the morning and getting in a workout hopefully before Gavie gets up so that we can just do whatever the rest of the day. Did I tell you my Jeep is broke? The rear end is out so I'm trying to get some money saved up for another car I can pay cash for.

Talk to you later!!

Hi! Poppin in while I have a chance. It will be short lived now I just heard little feet jump outta bed. I was hoping for another 30 min at min. O well.....

Been trying hard to eat right. I decided to plan out my meals again and pack the night before. I am doing great with walking at my lunch break. I eat and go right out. Dr and his wife already expect it from me. When the cold weather hits I was told I can still walk but walk on the treadmill the Dr has in his therapy room. So excited about that, I was going to get a planet fitness membership but I guess I don't have to yet.

My Jeep broke down and is in the garage area on stands. The rear end is out. My friend told me it would cost close to $2000 to fix it. He has a friend selling a car for $1000 now to just come up with the money. There is also a car dealer that you buy here pay here but I don't like that idea either. I am thinking of getting the car and slowly get the Jeep worked on. Then Anna can have the car and I can drive my Jeep til it goes again. I love my Jeep......Phil is debating what to do with his Jeep. His transmission finally went on his. He has 250,000 it's a 92. He is thinking junk yard for the money so we can get the car but at the same time he wants to keep it. Not sure yet what we are doing. My brothers friend is going to work on my Jeep when he can I just have to tow it to my brothers garage now. He has all the tools his friend is going to need.

As for me and my workouts the only thing I am really getting is my walks at work. I did get a pretty good sweaty step workout two times last week and I was at work really early Tuesday so I got in an extra walk too that day. My eating must be off because I still weigh the same. Here's to a great week of planning and watching what I'm eating.

Have a great Sunday my friend!!!

I shouldn't blame my family for being in town, but I am. They took up all of my time with having a fun time, so I wasn't able to get moving as I should. Sounds like an EXCUSE to me and I really don't like excuses. I promise today to get myself moving.

I got in a great workout this morning/afternoon. I got in the full dvd of my Body Fusion Step. I was actually dripping sweat off my face. LOL I didn't even huff and puff as much as I thought I was going to. I'm so excited.

Michelle, Salmon is delicious!! emoticon How did you make yours? There are sooo many different ways. What time do you get home from work when you close? Hopefully not too late. emoticon with getting in your workouts and getting stronger and stronger every day. Keep up the excellent focus!!

Work has been getting easier and easier to stay on track. I still look at the snacks and fight the temptation. Tonight, I had some peanuts but of course threw away most of the bag. I only had those because I forgot or didn't pack my healthy meal to bring to work.

My kids go back to school tomorrow! My son is excited and I think it's because he misses his friends. My daughter is like every other 13 year old and is really going to miss the summer break. She's already on top of things because she got in some extra credit summer projects already. My baby girl makes me extremely proud!! My son remind me of me when I was his age, he just does enough to make it through each school year.
