Day 18 & 19

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Well yesterday was day 18 of my journey. I didn't get a change to go for a walk or work out, but I was able to take my girls to their open house at school. This was after I was arguing with their father about me taking them. (Long story short: he has custody, but I'm in the process of going back to court for custody) It was a good thing that I was able to take them. Neither one of them knew where their first class was. In the past year, if I went to a school function for my girls, my ex and his family would not show up. If I didn't go, they would show up. How is that even telling the kids that you support them??? It shouldn't matter if I show up or not. Well, I knew that was the case yesterday. He was too busy with his own school work to make sure that the girls when to their open house. I believe he was kinda upset that his mom dropped the girls off to me and let me take them. Oh well, that's the way he wants to be.

Today is day 19. I can't believe I'm in my third week of this journey. As I sit here and type this, I look at my calendar. I have gold stars on the days that I haven't had a smoke and smiley faces on the days I work out. I'm starting to see more smiley faces and I love that. Since I've been home (5:10 pm) I have done a Bob Harper workout, walked for about 50 minutes which equals about 2.5 miles, done 4 1/2 loads of laundry, cooked dinner, and washed the dishes. I love the fact that I have all of this energy. I just wish I could save some of it and get up early and do my workouts before work.

Since this is hump day, I'm looking forward to the Labor Day weekend. This is just one of many long weekends that are coming up for the rest of the year. I'm hoping that I get to spend some much needed quality time with my boyfriend. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Congrats on the quit smoking. I quit a year ago and have finally lost the weight I gained. Now I'm going for the weight I was before I was pregnant. Then I'm going to go further depending on how I feel!!!!

    It's extremely hard. Your doing a great job.

    I'm in the same boat with my older kids. Long story as to why they didn't come with me and going to the courts is a long process. He's got the money and I have the no how. They balance out in the courtroom so I'm not going to gain anything unless my children actually WANT to come live with me as their own choice.

    It gets very frustrating and sometimes the dumbest things can start the biggest fights. It's always the kids that caught in the middle and it's sad. If you ever need to vent - you can always message me
