New Year, New Goals, New Life

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Can't say that I am not disappointed in myself. To go from 220 lbs to 168....and then back to 200 lbs. over the last year or 2 is very sad.

Truth is... My life has changed drastically in the last year and a half. I have gone from being married to being a divorced single mom. Where I used to have help, I am now alone. Free Time is very hard to find. Now, I am not making excuses. I fell into a trap and forgot that I had the strength to get out of it.

How cliche to say I am making a resolution for 2013! But actually, my resolution is to find myself once again and move forward.

-I need to remember that my lunch hour is the perfect time to run to the gym.

-I need to remember that on weekends the kids and I can go to the YMCA. I can work out and they can play.

-I need to remember to log every morsel of food that I eat. (keeps me honest)

-I need to remember to make better food choices.

-I need to remember how strong I am and how I can do this.

--I need to remember how beautiful I am inside- and let that come through on the outside again.

The time for FRUMPY MOM is over! I need to be the "MILF". After all, I do hope to start dating again eventually. Prince Charming or My Johnny Depp has to be out there somewhere.

I want to enjoy every aspect of life and show my kids (through my own actions) that anything is possible and Life Is Good!

VIVA the Future MILF in me!

Happy New Year All!

    I went from 403 to 239 and then back to 290. It happens and it's great to see that you're back. Keep it up and SparkPeople will be here!

    This is a wonderful blog! You have had it hard in the past two years...I would say that is not an excuse! You are that person who can bounce back though. You are strong. I like that you want to do this! Both for yourself and for your kids. Never give up friend...I know you won't! emoticon
