I know I'm going to make it through tonight as well without snacking. Tonight, hubby made a delicious Ground Turkey Stir Fry for dinner with brown rice and veggies. Once I was at work I knew I had foods in my fridge that I shouldn't be eating. I had Harold throw them all away, so I have only healthy foods in the house to eat. No more excuses!! I'm just getting heavier and heavier!!

Finally made it through the night without snacking on junk food. Let's see how I do throughout the day!! emoticon These pounds are not going to go away on it's own. I need to fight for what I want to get back on track. I know the first couple of days are the hardest.

I was talking to my BF today and I realized how boring my life is. I literally go to work, sleep, take care of the family. I don't really hang out and try not to shop too much because I don't want to spend too much money. I pretty much stay to myself and do my own thing. What a dull life?

TODAY I AM CLAIMING BACK MY HEALTHY LIFESTYLE!! I'm totally yelling at myself because I need to be true to me. My weight isn't going to come back off on it's own. I need to get back focused and do what I know is right. I keep telling myself this and I'm actually getting tired of saying it. I'm actually going to hold myself to this and come back feeling even more motivated tomorrow to make it through another day.

TODAY IS DAY #1!! emoticon

Question of the day:

How will I get back into the 170's?

1. I will make all of my meals to prevent from eating processed foods.
2. I need to walk for at least 20 minutes a day
3. While at work, I will only drink my meal replacement shakes & water. No more snacking on junk!!

Sounds simple! I know the longer I do this, the easier it will get.

Getting really disappointed in myself and don't know how to get back in control. I need a lot more willpower and strength to get back focused on my goals. It's extremely frustrating!! emoticon

Didn't do very well while at work tonight. I need to pack healthy snacks again to prevent from eating the junk food around me. I don't know why I do this to myself because now I feel awful.

Why is this struggle sooooo hard?? Tonight hubby cooked a healthy dinner and I was soooo appreciative. I've become too dependent on eating out, which we know isn't the healthiest. Plus, we can't really afford to eat out soo often.

I just find it sooo hard at times to get moving. I need to force myself to get back into a routine and then it gets easier and easier to get in my workouts. I need to remember how good I feel after I'm done getting in a good calorie burn.

I'm going to stop in the morning and purchase some veggies to make a soup. I know it's hot, but I'm just feeling it. Plus, I know it's healthy and easy to go down.

I miss my personal trainer, but I really can't afford her right now. I want to get some bills down before I pick her back up again. I really don't know how I managed before with paying bills and then paying for her services. Plus, I want to be at a lower weight to see the benefits even more when I start doing strength training again. I felt my muscle and started seeing the definition. Imagine if I was at a lower weight, I'll definitely see my muscle definition. If I'm going to be paying sooo much monthly, I want it to be worth it.

Exercise definitely helps me to stay focused!! I love the way I feel after I workout and I will hate to change this feeling by choosing the wrong foods to eat. I think I'm finally back in this game for real. I will let you know after my shift tonight on how I did without snacking on junk. This stage is really getting OLD! emoticon

Michelle, so glad that everything is working out for you with your jobs and healthy lifestyle journey. It will definitely make it soo much easier for you to work one job.

Nothing really new going on in my world. Just working, taking care of the family and struggling to keep my healthy lifestyle on track. I need to fight harder to make the right food choices. Today wasn't too bad, but I know I could have been even better.

I'm definitely trying to get back into it. Slow is better for me cuz when I jump in full firce I quit to soon. I loose my motivation and I just find ways to skip it. I love walks so I thought what better way to start again.

I git Gavin to bed now I'm heading there. I gotmy check today and tthey gave me a .50 raise. I just got a $1 in April. They must like me LOL Now I can think about quitting my second job since its only 2 - 1/2 days at .50 more then what I make now. Plus Dr said I can work Fri morning and Wed mornings if I want. Something to think about.

Off to bed. Night my friend. Have a good rest of the day!

Sounds life you ate really getting back on track, slowly but surely. You can do this! The planner idea sounds like a great way to organize your day.

I made it through today shift and slept all day on Sunday. Tonight is my last shift before my days off and I can't wait to get the 2 day break.

Silly me! I knew I had to take my daughter to her 8pm game and then head into work tonight. Why did I only get about 3-4 hours of sleep. I've been awake since around 1/1:30pm and totally fighting sleep right now as I type. I'm trying to find things to do at work to make the time go by quicker. I watched NCIS and now Law & Order Criminal Intent is on USA. I just made me 2 cups of tea in hopes that the caffeine kicks in soon. I'm stretching out my paperwork. I'm just counting down my hours until I get to go home.

Hope your getting a good nights rest. emoticon

GM Michelle, I'm soo sorry to hear about Larry & Lady. Our pets are our family and I'm totally not looking forward to the day mine pass away. My cat Princess if over 17 years old and Peanut just turned 2 in May. I do hope that next week is a better one for you.

I know how you feel about self sabotage because I've been doing that these last couple of months. Ever since my wrists started giving me problems, I used that as an excuse to stop exercising and eating right. It's actually starting to get ridiculous. This journey is not easy for sure, but we have to be strong. WE CAN DO THIS!!

I've realized that I'm definitely a stress eater and I need to learn how to grab the right foods. The older I get the more I recognize my problem. I see that these foods that I'm eating is a bad addiction. I have a very hard problem making the right choices when it comes to food.

I wish I had someone right next to me to just kick me in butt and get me on track. I need to start cooking again and eating clean. Tonight for work, I brought apples to munch on. I'm hoping that I actually eat them instead of the snacks that are right in my face. We shall see!!

Im going to try this again.....my posts from my phone don't show. :(

Sorry you didn't get the job. A better one will come your way for sure! Hang in there.

I've been sabotaging myself for awhile now. I know I need to get up and do it I just am nit feeling it. I've been sick for a couple weeks. I'm feeling better now but still not doing anything about my journey. I'm up a couple pounds too. I'm going to have to just do it. Anna had a root canal done Tuesday and she's doing much better. Poor kiddo her face was sooooo swollen her mouth didn't hurt. She looked the the whos in the grinch. Gavin is doing a great job at potty training now too. He's signed up for preschool with 3 ur olds. As long as he's totally potty trained by school time he's going. My Larry will be gone a yr at the end of the month and Tues unfortunately my Lady passed unexpectedly. Yesterday we went to a good friend's calling hrs. His time was way to soon. It's been a week thats for sure.

I hope everything's going well with you D! Here's to good end to this week!

Well, I just found out that I did not get the job I interviewed for. Oh well, Life goes on? I can't let this bring me down because it just wasn't meant to be and I do hope another opportunity comes my way sooner than later.

I'm still here fighting through this journey and need to try even harder to stay on track. I have a family reunion in August and I need or want to drop 30 pounds before then. We shall see how close I get to my goal. Let the challenge begin!

This Journey is real!! I'm constantly struggling and it's totally a ME problem. I know what I need to do to get on track and stay on track. I need to fight harder because I really don't like to be FAT. I feel terrible in this body and miss being just 20 pounds lighter. I need to do something and something FAST. emoticon

I made the phone call this morning to the company I interviewed with last week. They are still in the interview process, I was one of their first interviews and the good news is that I am still their #1 pick. She said the process will take a couple weeks. We had a good laugh on the phone and now I have to wait patiently. I am going to try to stop staying and just continue praying that this position was ment to be.

I am just addicted to junk! Are you with me or am I totally alone? emoticon I feel that junk food is my drug and I can't stop myself from loving it. Every bite just tastes sooooo delicious and then I feel guilty afterwards. it's sooooo extremely hard for me to just STOP. Why can't I stop? Grrrrr emoticon emoticon emoticon Tonight, I have been drinking, drinking and more drinking to prevent myself from snacking. I have chips & chocolate that are just calling my name. I have 3 more hours to go before my shift is done. I CAN MAKE IT!! I feel like an idiot because I just can't stop myself.

emoticon on your emoticon average and grades!! I know your happy to be done. What's next on the list for you?

My interview was yesterday morning at 9am. I thought it went really well and now waiting on a phone call. Please pray that this job was ment to be and that I get the job. It will be awesome to be back on a regular schedule with everyone else. It will be Mon-Fri 8:30am to 5pm. it will be a huge adjustment for my family, but I know it will workout for the better.

I'm totally trying to keep my calories 1200 or less to drop this weight. My clothes are fitting really tight and I refuse to buy a bigger size.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was perfect. We went out to eat with my mom and dad for lunch and then we went to Lowes to pick up a couple flowers I wanted and some miracle grow for my flower beds. I have finished painting the base of the house and now all I have to do is paint the porch then redo my flower beds so they are good again. They have sunken so I need to add to it. Perfect time to paint since the dirt level is low.

I'm not really doing to well eating this week. I also am slacking with the workouts. I just am not feeling it. I feel like I'm starting all over again. I do enjoy walks but Gavin wants to walk now so it isn't really a workout anymore. I'll get it.

I am going to CT Thursday to Sunday to visit and check in on my Grandpa. He isn't doing to well. He is 92 and has Alzheimer's and doesn't like the food at the place he lives at so my Aunts' all bring food in for him to eat and he eats. Some days are good some not so good. And my brother is getting married. So it will be a quick and painful weekend. LOL I'll love it though.

Good luck on your interview. I know you'll do great. I agree with your hubby. Just go in there and be you. Keep me posted!! Have a nice day. I'll try to pop in tomorrow after my morning job and before we head out Thursday morning.

Michelle, my mother's day was wonderful, how was yours?

I'm sitting here trying not to be too hard on myself for gaining this weight back. I've lost the same 20-30 pounds over and over and over again and it's getting kind of old. It's soooo annoying that I keep doing this to myself. I'm back at it again and I'm keeping track of what I put in my mouth. I definitely know that I've been eating too many calories and trying to shrink my stomach again. Grrrr! NO FUN!! I"m off to make dinner and get ready for my sons soccer game.

Tomorrow at 9am, I have a job interview for a Customer Coordinator position and getting my resume & references together. I'm trying to not get nervous and keep repeating the words my husband Harold told me. "Just go in and be yourself and they will love you." Pray for me!!

After work today we went shopping for my mom's Mother's Day present (I know I'm a very big procrastinator) then to the mall to pick up my NEW washer. My other one broke again so I broke down and bought one. Now I don't have to worry about if it rang out or if it stopped and I don't have to be mad cuz it is leaking cuz it won't be. :)

We just had Sbarro Pizza (I know it isn't on the list of things I should eat but Gavin will and Phil wanted it and I didn't want to cook soooooo.......pizza it was). I need to help Phil with the washer swap then I hope to go out and take a nice walk and enjoy the weather and quiet (if I can go by myself).

How is your day today D? I hope you have a great day tomorrow! Happy Mother's Day early!!

Great job getting in a work out today and for resisting the chips. That is a great accomplishment. Super proud of you!!

I am officially done with school now. I'm so excited. I got a B in my Math class and still waiting to see what I got in my Ethics class. I missed a deadline so I hope I get enough credit for doing it anyway. Fingers crossed for atleast a C then my GPA will be a 3.2 still. I'm just excited that I'm done with school and I don't have to worry about my homework, study time, test time, paper anymore.

I am taking this week off and starting over again tomorrow with my weigh in and workouts. Here's to a great start again!!

The temptation was real last night while at work. Of course my desk is right across from our gift shop. The chips were calling my name all night. I resisted and feel accomplished. It's about time I get my act back together.

I'm sooooo sorry that I've been soo distant lately. I've just been depressed ever since my wrists started acting up and have been eating/drinking everything under the sun. You know what that means? Yes, I've gained back around 20 pounds. I gain weight soooo quickly. I'm trying sooo hard, but I guess not hard enough to get back on track. This journey is extremely hard, but I need to really get myself focused on eating healthy and in my range. I know I can do this. My goal was to be at a healthy weight before my 40th birthday. July I turn 39, so I really need to get my act together. I just wish I was born in a skinnier body!

The struggle is REAL!! emoticon

I've come to the conclusion that I have no choice but to get back on track. My clothes are starting to get tight and it's an awful feeling.

Hope your having a wonderful day! emoticon

Michelle, I totally hope that everything works out for you with taking on one job. It can't be easy having 2 jobs and taking care of your family. Sorry that things have been rough for you and I hope that things get better. Count down to May 5th, which is also my anniversary! Hang in there.

I'm trying not to be too hard on myself and just get myself back on track. I am on week #3 or 4 with being off track with a big gain. I still need to learn how to portion out my comfort foods, which is extremely hard for me. I have some motivations coming up such as a class reunion in May and a family reunion in August. Let's see how good I could be. Tonight at work starts day #1 again!! emoticon

How are things going D? I've been at a pretty low until a week ago. I CAN NOT wait for school to be out. I will be done May 5th!!! I also am going to take up the offer my second job gave me a few weeks ago and have one fullish time job. I will have every Wednesday and Sunday off and Friday mornings along with every other Saturday. Unless I find a better offer before then somewhere else. I really wanted to work til 4 or 5. I'm not a fan of the late nights or Saturday's. I am done working two jobs though. I'm hoping that with these two changes it will help me get back on track again. I've been eating much much better and trying not to drink pop.

On another subject we are going to be visiting Cape May in June. How far away is that from you? I hope you are not beating yourself up to much. One day at a time.

Alright!! Alright!! Alright!! I have fallen hard this month and of course have put back on weight. My body is totally asking me, what the hell are you doing??? I have determined that I could be 100% on point or 100% off. I just don't have a middle ground for what ever reason. I always have a hard time getting back on track. I need to get it together before I spiral too far out of control.

Last week, I slacked on drinking my water and getting in my workout routines. This is why I maintained instead of losing. Oh well!! Off to another week! I'm focusing on staying strong and doing what I know is right. emoticon

Still going strong and staying away from the junk food. I'm almost through week #4 and I'm actually really proud of myself. This is HUGE for me turning down soooo many temptations. Yesterday, after my sons basketball game they had soft pretzels. I looooooove soft fresh pretzels, but I stayed away. I didn't even have a nibble on one. Then tonight at work, my co-worker ordered a pizza and I was offered slices from a guest. It smelled soooooo delicious, but I stayed strong. I'm really going to see how long I could keep this streak going. I'm just really impressed because I really struggled to start this personal challenge.

emoticon Hope your doing well and I'm sending you some Sunshine!! emoticon

emoticon Today makes Day #21 on my clean eating streak. I'm sooooo excited because I actually didn't even have my chocolate covered strawberries my husband bought. I will be eating all the other fruits on the arrangement he bought for me. My kids Maya & Alex are excited to eat the strawberries. He also cooked me breakfast, lunch & dinner since he knew I didn't want to go to a crowded restaurant with their salty food. He kept it nice & simple, which is exactly how I like it.

While at work, they had many little chocolate hearts that tempted me all night. I kept telling myself that it just wasn't worth it.

I haven't worked out the last 2 days and I'm wondering if I should take another day off today. I'll see how I'm feeling once I get home. I probably should force myself to get something in especailly since weigh in day is right around the corner on Monday. I need to stop being lazy!!

I feel amazing because I've been keeping the junk out of my system. Hopefully I will see a 2 pound loss I've been waiting on for the last 2 weeks.

How are you all doing?

Yesterday I took advantage of the kids not having any after school activities. I stayed in bed for as long as I possibly could. I'm soo thankful that my kids are at the age where they aren't as needy. They could do things on their own without having to wake me up. My son has a basketball game Friday, Saturday & Sunday this week. We are thinking these are his last couple of game and then he goes back to karate. As long as we keep him busy!

Yesterday was a lazy day hanging out with family, eating healthy, getting in my workout and getting things done around the house. Today I woke up and made an Egg white omelet with onions, tomatoes and spinach with a side of oatmeal. It can't out sooooo good! I gotta make it for the family. I am about to change to get in my workout for the day. I gotta get moving before the day goes by. I have a small window before I have to run around with the kids.

My week #3 is going amazingly well and I am learning to be creative with my meals. Since my nutritional restrictions, I miss certain foods but still enjoying my meals.

Michelle, My son Alex fell out of bed once and actually curled up and fell right back to sleep. It was actually the funniest thing ever, lol. Does Gavin fall out of his bed often? Were you able to keep your entire day healthy? I haven't had Tilapia in a very long time. How was it made?

Yesterday was another awesome day with keeping my nutrition in line and getting in a double workout. Weigh in day wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, but I am a pound down. I saw 165. My trainer has told me that it takes 21 days for your body to adjust to change. So, I'm hoping next week, I will see better results and at least see 2 pounds gone. We also did measurements and I'm down in my hips and waste. What else can I ask for? We also tested my body fat levels and I'm down 2% body fat, which is AWESOME!! I'm sooooo excited about that. Strength training is definitely paying off.

Awesome day for you yesterday!

No wii time last night but today I got off early my am job so I got in 10 min mma and 10 wii golds gym dance. Better then nothing. About to go make a salad and have some left over tilapia Phil made yesterday.

Gavin fell outta bed once last night tgen I woke him by accident this morning. I covered him up and shut his door so I can get a quick shower. Guess I'm going to have to start getting them at night so I don't do that again. Luckily he went back to sleep but in our bed lol.

Better get him a bite to eat before heading out again. Talk to you later! Here's to another great day!

Michelle, that's great that your feeling better already. Were you able to play on the Wii as you planned? Good Luck getting in your workout in the morning! I just know that Gavin will get it together for you.

Today, I used as a rest day with my exercise. I kept my nutrition in line and logged every single bite. I packed 3 meals to bring to work to finish off my day. Tonight I have Baked Turkey Breast, Quinoa & mixed veggies. I'm about to heat some up shortly to prevent myself from snacking. After tonight I only have Monday night until my days off. I'm looking forward to just chilling and relaxing, but of course I have a meeting on Tuesday and then an eye appointment on Wednesday. It kind of forces me to get out of the house to get things done. I also need to look for a dress to wear to my BIL's wedding next month.

Glad to hear you did so well today!! I'm feeling much much better today. So happy too. I'm at my friends waiting on Anna to finish eating then home for the night. I would like to play alittle wii if Gavin will let me. Plan to get everything ready for tomorrow too so I don't have to run around like a nut in the AM. I would like to actually work out in the morning.

Gavin peed a few times today. He knows what to do he just chooses not to.

Today was totally a good day and I'm soooo happy that I was able to keep myself under control. I felt like snacking and eating foods that I know my body just doesn't like. I'm trying to come to grips that my body just doesn't like certain foods. I'm hoping the longer I fight to keep myself away from them, the easier it will become. Does it get easier? Who know!!

I even told my husband that I can't go out to dinner for Valentine's Day. I just can't eat out until I get myself to the right place. I know if I eat something that's not on my plan, I will sprial out of control. Plus, my body will spike up in weight. I have fought through these last couple weeks and I don't want to ruin all my efforts. We are going to make it into a family fun day.

Michelle, emoticon to almost being done with school. What are your plans when your done? I do hope you figure out your financial aid situation. My daughter is about to head into High School, so my head is starting to spin about that thought. My husband says I'm worrying too early.

I totally know how your feeling with snacking. I work right next to snacks all night that totally call my name. I had to just stop myself one night and I've started my clean eating streak. Monday will make 2 weeks and I'm proud to say that. I do remember that statement from the Biggest Loser and I have kept that in my head ever since. I workout every day with rest days here and there and I want to look as hard as I exercise. Right now, my body just doesn't look as athletic as I feel.

I say take the meds to help you feel better. You have to do too much to suffer through a cold without some kind of relief. How are you feeling today?

Sounds like a fun plan you have with Gavin. Good luck with potty training, I totally remember those days. With my son, once I knew he was ready I just put him in underwears. I wanted him to feel the wet and that got him to fully use the toilet. He totally didn't like being wet.

You are doing so great D!! Way to go my friend!!

School is just moving along. I have a few more weeks and then my math class starts. May 5th will be here before I know it. I can't wait to be done with school. Today I got an email stating my tuition was due which means they messed up yet again on my financial aid and I have to find time to go to the school to find out what else I have to do to get this resolved. I'm so glad this is my last semester!! The financial aid is a pain in the rump.

As for my workouts they are null and void so far but I am eating much better. My problem is when I get home from my second job and need to cook dinner. While I'm cooking I am snacking on bad snacks. I see it and when I eat it I know it but I still eat it. Someone on the Biggest Loser said "if you don't change your eating habits it doesn't matter how much you workout......you won't get anywhere without fixing the eating too" I wasn't to excited about this season but I watched it on the weekend. I'm not feeling like much today. My nose won't stop running and my head feels like it blew up in there. I may have an ear infection cuz one of my ears is bothering me too. I wonder if I can get rid of it without meds.

We are heading out soon to pick up some poster board and a butt load of stickers for Gavin's potty/poopy board. I also want to make a board up for his bedtime routine with more stickers when we do each one. He plays a game that he gets a prize like a sticker to put on a board (they call it a trophy). Gonna try because I really want him to be done with these diapers. I am aiming for one more box and that is all.

Here's to a new week and better habits forming!! Have a great day D!!!

Back to my motivated self!! I kept my nutrition on track and got in my insanity workout. Feeling positive and ready to take on another day. WOW, I can't believe that I've made it to Day #10 and sooo happy that I'm making progress. I know I'll start seeing results through my consistency I'm trying not to stress too much over no loss this past weigh in. This journey is going to have their ups and downs and I have to deal with them.

Hope you all are doing well! emoticon

Yesterday's weigh in didn't go as planned, but I stayed strong. Normally, I would of had a cheat day after a bad weigh in, but I fought through it. I am still going strong and determined to make strides. I am still on a roll with my clean eating steak.

I am waking up this morning and realizing that I do not have any knee pains or just body aches. It's amazing how quickly my body is telling me that it's loving my healthy lifestyle. I am only putting in foods that are good for me and this is extremely motivating. I know right from wrong and there is no tricking my body. I just need to continue doing what's rights. Today will be an awesome day!

To make Day#4 successful, I made 3 different proteins. Chicken, Turkey & Shrimp to help get me through the week. I have to keep things cooked to but grab the wrong foods. It also keeps my family eating healthy, which is the overall goal as well. I have my log book that helps to keep me accountable. Writing here and blogging more also helps me to stay motivated. Hope you all are doing well! emoticon

Day #2, was a huge success! I got in all 6 small meals and started Day #1 of Insanity. Shaun T really kicked my butt, but I loved it, lol. I am totally feeling it in my shoulders and hamstrings this morning. I am going to push through and complete day #2. Once my body gets warmed up my muscles well loosen up.

Day #1: Today was a good day and I'm proud to say that I got in my workout and kept my nutrition on track. I just looooove the way i'm feeling. I have sooooo much energy and I don't know why I even fall off track. I don't like the way I feel when I'm eating the wrong foods that I love. I LOOOOOOOVE FOOD, but I need to stick to the healthy foods only. I have a list of foods that I can eat and I'm pushing myself to stick to only those foods.

Hope you all are doing well!!

emoticon to Gavin with his potty training. I know you can't wait until he's fully trained. I totally don't miss those days.

emoticon with getting in your workout!! Sounds like your getting into a routine again.

Today I forced myself to get in my workout. I got in a jog/walk on the treadmill with more jogging than walking. It feels amazing to get back on track and feel yourself getting stronger and stronger. My nutrition has been all over the place and today will make Day #2 with staying on track. I have to get it together to lose this weight. I've been seeing the same numbers too many times on the scale.

HAPPY MONDAY to you all!! emoticon

Well I woke up early today but procrastinated until 10 this morning to workout. Got in Day 2 and 3 of Jessica Smiths #FITIN15. I'm still a day behind so maybe I can get day 4 in today and be caught back up or tomorrow get two in.......

Gavin and I made mini pancake muffins. Some had chocolate chips, nutella, grape or strawberry jelly. They were all a hit but he likes the chocolate chips best. LOL We are going to go to my SIL's mom's bday dinner in a few hrs. Hope they have a salad so I don't fill up on bad foods. We are going to leave early too because today is grocery day.

Gavie has been doing really good with potty training esp if I can keep his undies on. He HATES to be wet. LOL

Hope you have a good day today. I need to finish getting ready for the day.

I had to work today and now I'm at the library with Gavin. He loves it here.

My book for school was delivered yesterday. I got my reading done already and now I have 2 questions to do and find something ethical in the news. I have til Sinday to get it done.

I didn't end up working out yesterday or this morning but I'm still looking forward to one after church tonight. I don't like hurrying Sunday morning so that leaves Sat nights. He's not really cooperating now so we'll see what happens.

I weighed in today but gonna see what tomorrow says. I couldn't have lost 1.4# with hardly working out.......gotta find Gavie have a good day

I have been doing amazing with the exercise. My nutrition on the other hand isn't going very well. I've lost all self control and it's actually driving me CRAZY. You would think through my frustrations I would just eat right, but that's not happening. My weight is totally winning right now, but I'm still fighting.

I'm going to be heading home shorly and I can't wait to head to bed. The family has a 2 hour delay heading to school, so I will be able to see them before heading off.

Got in a 15 min moderate intensity workout this morning. I wish I didn't have to work. I enjoy waking up around 8 and having a cup of joe then finally get a workout in before the little man wakes up. Since that isn't possible I enjoyed my morning off. I'm off now to get a bite to eat.

Goals for this month:
1) Eat breakfast (however small) - main goal
2) workout 15 min minimum
3) drink more water
4) work on tracking food

I'm off to finish up the laundry and wash the dishes. I already have my uniform ready for my afternoon job. Have a wonderful day today!!

Great job D! What a wonderful feeling that is for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I was hoping to be upstairs in 10 min so I will wake up on time for a workout in the morning. It doesn't look like Gavin is even close to going to bed. I don't get it either since he didn't get a nap either. hmmmmm

Didn't workout out as much as I hoped for last week but I did watch my food and stopped eating by 8. I'm down .8# and I'm ok with that. Here's to a new week and a new plan. I'm off to try again to get Gavin changed.....he has been refusing and fighting tooth and nail to change for bed. He was doing real good with going potty to around Christmas but now he is refusing to go now too. I just don't get it......I just keep hoping tomorrow will be better. I also start school again tomorrow. LAST SEMESTER AND I'M DONE!!!

Night D!! Have a great evening!!

I have finally reached one of my fitness milestone. I jogged for 3 miles straight without stopping. It took me 45 minutes, which I am soooo proud of. I am soooooo excited and amazed.

Last night I snacked on Cashews, was that a bad choice? I had 2 cap fulls, which was probably what made it too much. This morning I had greek yogurt, strawberries and granola with granola cereal with Almond Milk. I plan on eating every 3 hours. Since I started eating at 10 my lady meal well be at 10 if I am still awake, lol. The key is starting full and eating the right foods.

Mmmm, your pork chop dinner sounded delicious. Your daughter cracks me up, lol. What didn't she enjoy with dinner? What are your 2 jobs again?

I have fully been back on track for the last 5 days and I still have the temptation to munch. I have been grabbing the right foods/snacks. I looove baby carrots. I am off today and need to get changed to get in my workout. I have just been chilling with the dog.

I got out of work early today. I wanted to call off but didn't and should have I only worked 1.5 hrs. I made a woppin $16 today!! To bad I have to go to my second job at 1230 :( It's so cold I do not like this cold weather. I can't stay warm.

Last night I made a pork and rice casserole. Pork chops, rice, diced tomato, green pepper, onion, and a packet of pork gravy. I liked it but Anna was like I don't know if I like it. Tonight is orange chicken in the crock pot. I guess I better go and get the chicken out to thaw a bit before going to work.

I hope you have a great day today!!

Sounds like you totally have everything planned out. You are totally a typical mother who has to be organized in order to get through the day. Us Mom's are always on the go until the kids go to sleep. WTG with staying on track. We also got snow yesterday, but it didn't really do much damage. Except we had a lot of plain delays.

This week I cooked, Turkey, Chicken Breast and Salmon with some brown rice & quinoa. I buy frozen Birdseye veggies, which are delicious. I'm trying to see how long everything lasts so I don't have to keep cooking and always have food available. NO EXCUSES!!! emoticon

My bed is soooo calling my name and I can't wait to head home. My shift is almost done and I hope the lady coming in behind me is on time. Fingers crossed!!

It's a slow start but I'm not giving in. Today we got snow and I went out and shoveled the front but that is all I got in today. In an hour it's bedtime......I read 2-4 books to Gavin then we go to sleep. I usually fall asleep waiting for him to fall asleep LOL Tomorrow I only work my morning job so I will get a workout tomorrow for sure. I'll also be outside with Gavin for a short time then to the library with him and after that dinner. So looks like a crock pot meal it is. I love Wednesday's.....it's mommy Gavie day!!

Glad you are on track again....you are doing emoticon !! What do you cook ahead? How is your job going?

Michelle, you know I'm happy to have you back. It looks like you didn't do too much damage while you were gone. WTG with maintaining the 140's!!! emoticon I know getting back on track isn't always easy.

My last weigh in I was at 168 and hoping for a good weigh in later on today. My goal is to drop 2 pounds a week. I know I can do it if I just stay on track as I should be. I have made all my meals for the next couple of days and will see how long they last. It's about time that I am back on track and it feels good.

I have decided to get back to it so here I am once again. I will have more time to get online since this is my last semester and the classes will be online. I still have both my part time jobs which I will be keeping for awhile. I need to pay off some bills again. It's never ending.

Sorry I have been away. I just couldn't get online to much going on with the kids, two jobs, and school. It was a bit much. I have two classes left. One starts 1/12 and ends 5/5 and the other class starts 3/5-5/5. Then I'm DONE!!!

Not sure if the scale I was using was accurate so I bought a new scale and my beginning weight is 148.8 now. This morning I got in a workout and I am planning to get another in tomorrow morning before work. Here's to a great year!

Tonight I am a little sad because I am but seeing the results on the scale as I had hoped for. No matter how good I am, I feel add though my body does what ever it wants. This journey is sooooo hard and I wish it was just over. I keep second guessing if I would ever reach my goal. I feel like crying because it's soooo hard.

Today I jogged my first ever 3k and it felt amazing. It took me 45 minutes. I feel so much stronger after being with my trainer since February. Alison has done so much for my health and I really thank her for investing in me. I have to make her proud and stay on track to see a loss. She's the little birdie on my shoulder keeping me in line.

I'm actually really proud of myself this week. I have had soooo many temptations and haven't had any at all. I have a meal plan and I'm trying to stick to it as much as I possibly can. I've also been getting in my workout routines. With this combonation should result in a loss on Monday. This is all that I think about these days, which is helping me stay on track. I wish this journey came easier for me, but it's really hard. Every week, I just want to get closer and closer to my goal weight of 139.

Tonight I have a headache that just won't go away. I've been trying to eat my meals as planned and took a break from exercise yesterday. Today is a new day because I plan on getting in my workout once I get home. This way I don't have to worry about it throughout the day. I just pray that my headache allows me to accomplish what I want.

I have these snacks particularly Oreo cookies that are calling my name. They right at arms reach, but I'm trying soooo hard to fight it. I finished an apple as my snack and just ate one of my meals. I shouldn't be hungry, but I am. This journey is nothing but a mind game and my mind is playing tricks on me right now.
