This has been a very busy week for me to say the least...toward the end of the week I got a little off track and I realize I was eating to fill a void. My best friend had a stroke on tuesday and I was notified on thursday, which is when I began to go downhill. She lives 400 miles away and I feel so helpless. We are the same age and so are our boys and that scares me. I want to help her and hold her and tell her its gonna be ok but all I can do is text her because she can't talk(due to the stroke). I have been very sad and having my own silent pity party and putting on a happy face for everyone around me. This in a nutshell is the reason for my recent silence.

There are a lot of things in my life that I have no control over but my healthy living and lifestyle is something I can control. I have decided that my pity party is over and I am going to put all this negative energy into something positive....ME!! My bestie would woop my butt if she knew how I was acting!!!

I went Krogering today and that always cheers me up. With my coupons and instore savings....I saved $65...I love it!!! And they finally got in some angel food cake after being sold out for a week(everyone knows our secret Michelle!!). I am currently baking some chicken breasts for the week ahead. Pulling myself up and brushing myself off and getting my mind right for next week.

I will blog everyday.
I will track my food everyday.
I will exercise everyday.
I will be in control.

    I'm so sorry about your friend. You've certainly had alot to deal with lately. Don't worry, we all have those times when we are overwhelmed. You have done, are doing and will do a great job. The best thing that you've done is get back up. You could've stayed down. You could've camped there...but you didn't. You got back up because YOU decided to. It would've been easier to stay down but you didn't .. and that is a testimony to the real you....not the emotionally defeated you...but the strong, courageous victorious you.

    You are not alone..just remember that. You are not alone.

    P.S. I always buy 2 angel food cakes and throw one up in the
