Long time no see.

Goodness gracious, feels like an eternity since I have been on here. I missed you guys already. Well life has gotten quite busy. I don't think I had ever been so busy before in my life, but I actually enjoy it this way. Unfortunately it doesn't leave me enough time to get on Sparks. But oh well, balance, balance, balance!
Lets see, hmmm, I guess I can say I have had some progress in all this time. I have lost about 2 pounds and a total of 6 pounds since getting back on track around May. I'm weighing in at 164 lbs. I have to say that it doesn't sound like much, and I know I could do better, but weirdly enough I also feel satisfied. Does that make any sence? Let me try to explain. After loosing 4 pounds on my own I joined my mom in a weightloss program that involved accupuncture with magnetic little balls on the ear. It's hard to explain. Anyways, they also give you a diet plan. My mom had lost 6 pounds the first week and 4 pounds the next. So I decided to try. The first week they give you a diet of all fat, well sorta. You can't eat any sugar, pasta, or flour. Then they change it up. Well I have only lost 1 pound each week for the two weeks that I had gone. Kinda dissapointing but at the same time I feel good cause atleast I'm consistently loosing a pound. I took time off of it since my mom had to leave the country for an emergency so I'm going to wait for her to come back and continue the program. But since then I have been up and down with 1 to 2 pounds and haven't been able to have a breakthrough. BUT I have no one to blame. I know that I just haven't been giving it my all. FOr some reason I just can't seem to have a full successful week. I'll be on 2 days of 1 then on again and so on. I just give into temptations so easily and it's weird cause I deliberately do it. I don't know it's hard to explain. But like I said, I don't feel too bad cause atleast I'm still hanging in there and trying each day. I'm treating each day as a new day and getting back up as many times as I fall.
Now what I can say that I'm doing so much better is with the staying active part. My mom actually has been a great influence on me. I'm ashamed that she's actually the one who pushed me more than me push her. She got me started back on walking early in the mornings and then jogging one mile and then 2 miles. Now I'm back in the swing off things and I'm loving it. Being able to feel athletic again and active. I've been walking/jogging almost everyday and I've been bicking a lot with my kids. Actually I had just came back from riding with my kids at a forest preserve. It was great. I haven't done much of anything else. I would like to get back into my P90X or some strength training but I don't want to stress out about that. For now I'm happy staying active, walking, jogging, playing with my kids, ect. I also got introduced to a dance video game for XBOX 360 and I am totally hooked. NOt only is it fun, I can do it with my daugther and it makes you sweat! So that is definately going on my wish list!
Well I think I've rambled on enough for now! Talk to you soon!
