I am soooo very disappointed with myself, thus far. I was totally doing great lost 2 lbs (water i know), and then I don't know what happend! I don't feel like doing any exercises, although I've still been drinking water and eating OK...not the best but not the worst! Hub has asked me to get a kettlebell and try using it and see how it goes, he's also sending me an instructional DVD....so I've got this kettlebell; now what?! .....I'm just in a funk i guess, I miss my husband terribly, my kids are getting on my nerves, and not listening, and have definatley improved their back-talking skills, I clean my house EVERY day...everything's the same, (think groundhog day effect)Sorry done girls for letting you down...I'm going to try and get myself out of this, and hopefully in a couple days I'll be back........ emoticon everyone....

    Put the kids to bed. Go to the bathroom, run a bath (with bubbles), light a scented candle, grab your favorite book, a tall glass of water and take some time to just relax. Being a single parent can be hard but you can do this. Just take a deep breath and focus on what you are trying to do for yourself. emoticon

    Cleaning is good! So you are doing something. It's not like you are vegging at the TV all day, not with kids in the house. It's natural to miss hubby and it's hard, but he'll be back in no time, so come on get back on your healthy program and really make him proud of you upon his return.

    Try to snap out of this funk and buff your stuff while hubby is not home, he will appreciate you even more. You gotta fight this funk and take back your life..
    Kids are tough and I am a widow. I have two sons with ADHD, if the kids don't listen I remove their most treasured items from them until one gets their attention. I am mommy monster but they know I mean business if I say stop.. I accidently take the internet connections to work, forget pocket money and other stuff so they don't even go there to not listening. When I take something for a week or a month, it is a week or a month. Children cotton on real fast to listening, begging and pleading gets rewarded with a extra days removal and being sent to their room... Gotta be strict to be kind. My most outward reacting ADHD is settling into a bright teenager and has learned empathy towards people around him. My youngest has had strict rules of conduct since he was 8 years old and being watched at a childrens mental home by two special teachers 24-7 over 6 months to see how we could be control him, as was not hyper to need medication.. I had have a kid that had a violent temper, whom is now able to control his temper, trusted and against all odds has lots of friends and listens to my every demand with respect.. If kids have temper tantrums, send them to their room and act cold. My youngest gets time alone and usually comes back and apologizes for the unpleasant time he has given me.. Kids need rules to know where they stand with us.
