The new "START"

Monday, October 05, 2009




Ok so some days I feel like this still! I know ,it is all in my head(at least I hope so) .I came back after my spark break knowing what I wanted and was willing to do it. i renewed my spark , so to say. Well it has been a couple of weeks and so far I have done little. I really want to lose 10 lbs by the middle of December but going like I am it is not going to happen. It sure does help to come to spark and read articles and stories about others. I have proven that it does, I just need to get back into the routine of doing it.Life is alot more hectic these days ,with 2 new babies and all that entails. No they aren't my babies(are you nuts!!) But one lives with me so you can't hlp but get wrapped up in the day to day of their little lives.

But that is just an excuse. That baby doesn't make me eat pizza when I know I shouldn't . It is like a staple food around here and no amount of talking has changed anyones mind about what should be eaten. The sad part is we are all overweight. At least Me, hubby & one son are. My husband doesn't have a problem with it and that energy flows to our son. Believe me I have tried. Til I am blue in the face. I won't give up but I do feel like a nag. Hopefully one of these days it will sink in.

So that is some of how life is going right now. It is up to me to fight this fight. just trying to let you know that I'm still aware of what is important. Just making it a priority is a hard thing. Oh and here is an after pic! hehe Hey it is the month for Halloween!!

    Deuce - you are not alone my friend... We are all getting good at starting over... It's when we stop trying to start over that we are in trouble... So never stop starting over... lol
    I like Mauri's suggestion on the pizza... I haven' t had pizza in awhile... But almost had it tonight and I know that we are due for one soon. lol
    Hey here's a thought... Since it's getting COLD UP THERE I know how you could get warmed up... get that bike out and see how far you get each day for 15 minutes... I wonder if Q would like to go for a Ride with you... hee hee

    Good Luck my friend...

    Hey there don't despair. We all go through that struggle trying to get back on track. Just keep trying and know that one day it will be a routine and you will be off and running (LOL) again. Our hubbies don't always see what we are trying to do so unwittingly sabotage us. But eventually mine has become more aware of his health just by watching my struggle and persistence. Now he tells me if I am in a weak moment and want to eat or drink something I shouldn't. Both my husband and daughter now support me in my efforts. So you just keep on trying and one day they will support you too! emoticon emoticon KICK BUTT!!!

    Oh D, so good to hear from you! Routine is a killer to get back into and I am struggling with that myself. Please try to take things one day at a time. A newborn is enough to through havoc in any schedule as I suppose that is what miracles do right?? hehe. Do small goals at a time to get you back in the floowing. Start wiht a goal of just drinking all your waters for the day and then re-evaulate at the end of the day. remember slow and steady wins the race. start off small so you dont beat yourself up for not hing doing eVERYThing perfectly.

    Deuce, I hear you! We allow so little to derail us from our goals. Let's do this together...Maybe if your husband and son see how much better you feel, they'll take up the standard.

    Now, this Italian gal says pizza isn't always bad...just order it with 1/2 cheese and veggies like mushrooms, peppers, olives...at least it makes it healthier...and decide beforehand to have only 2 slices. For instance, Domino'smedium thin crust pizza, with regular amount of sauce & cheese, mushrooms, green peppers & black olives comes to about 148 calories a slice with 7.5 gms fat and 285 gms of sodium...if you get half the cheese, that will probably be fewer calories and grams of fat and sodium. Two slices come in under 300 calories...If the men don't like it that way, then order a small hand tossed at about 194 calories a slice.

    Just a suggestion to get you started thinking about it..

    Hugs!
