I was so hoping for a weight loss this week. Instead I gained 2#. I worked out every day atleast 20 min a day, walked atleast 3 nights, and drank more water each day. So it looks like I need to track my food now too. I just don't know how to log my dinners. Guess I'll see how it goes today. One day at a time.

I did a Cathe Freiedrich step workout today and I LOVED it. I can't believe I ever stopped. I forgot how much I loved working out to these dvd's. I plan to do session 2 tomorrow since I only did session 1 today. Small is better then nothing and it was kicking my butt. So tomorrow is session 2 and then Friday going to try both. I also made a juicy juice bottle into my water bottle. I will be getting another soon but for now 1 bottle a day. So where I go it will go too. I don't care for plain water unless it is ice cold or usually after mowing the yard so I added a cranberry lemonade singles to go flavor to the 64 oz of spring water.

Feeling good about today!!

Now that my kiddos are well I am getting back into the swing of working out again. I am tired of losing same darn pounds that I gain at the TOM week. I just let myself eat whatever it is I want that week. I need to bring it in and continue the same eating habits as the rest of the month. This month I am up and down with my workouts. I find them boring or to hard. Is there such a thing as to hard? Challenging yes hard not really if I think about it. I did alittle look see at a challenge I do and I went back to 2015 and I have been the same weight so I guess that is a good thing but I am DEFINATLY doing something wrong if I'm the same weight and I have been trying (must NOT have been trying as much as I thought). So I am here today again never to give up a little dissapointed in myself but when I look at the whole it is always my choices that will change or not change.

Today I am in it to change. Change the way I see myself. Even though I'm 150# or close I still see myself as scquishy. My 6yr old son likes that squishy but I do not. I am going to get back on track like before I even knew I was going to have my son.

Goals - to drink my water (need to get the bottles I found I liked), post my workouts, and track my food whether it is here on SP or in my journal book where I put my water intake, steps for the day and a smiley face sticker on each day I workout. I am going to put a smiley face sticker for every workout that I do each day now. Enough of this sabotage. Never giving up always moving forward. Every small victory is a step in the right direction.

Thank you HEALTHYHEARTZ. My kiddos are doing much better. She ended up with Roseola and then my 6 yr old son had the fever for a few days after hers broke but no rash that I had seen. Today they are both doing great. Have a great day!

This week has been pretty bad. My granddaughter had a high fever again so we brought her to the Dr office to check if she had another UTI and luckily it was not but was told it could be Roseola and that it would be a few days and she will have a rash and feel better. Last night we brought her to the statcare to have them re-check her ears and then also check her throat. She is slobbering way to much for where she is at in the sickness. They found she had thrush and sent a subscription to the pharmacy for her. Today she is going wonderful compared to the last few days. Now my son has a fever as well. I figure he cought the Roseola since he has been sick a lot this year. We will see. He went to bed late last night so is still sleeping. He should be rolling around soon though. Fingers crossed his fever is gone now too. I didn't get anything but cleaning, walking the floors with the little one and one walk outside this week for me. I don't know how I went down this week but I did and I'll take it. Time to get back on track and get moving again. I miss working out now go figure LOL

Need to grab a snack workout shower and see what I can do for me today.

I got a nice (NOT SO MUCH) of myself before getting in the shower the other day. Needless to say it wasn't what I wanted to see. I'm slowly getting myself back at it. My shoulder has been bothering me now since the Thursday before Memorial Day but yesterday was so bad I took ibuprofen before bed and I slept so much better. I took some this morning and need to wait now til about 3 for more. I am starting to feel my elbow throb again like it did yesterday. Taking it easy on the upper body today. I'm not going to stop but I will have to modify a bit on my left side. Water is a bit of an issue yet but I have a system up today to see how much I get. Here's to a better day!! Keep moving forward never stopping.

So as life happens I take it one day at a time. I will get to my goal weight again I know it. I just need to get myself back on track. I now am a home mommy and loving it. But with being a home mommy it is SO easy to go to the kitchen and eat anything anytime. It isn't like when I worked out of the house for 8 hrs and had my food with me. I can do this. I have bought new water jugs so I can drink more water. I have the Tupperware now for the snacks to be divvied up and workout plan. I have been cleaning upstairs almost all day yesterday. I got my son's bedroom done, bathroom done, son's toy room, the foyer upstairs and most of my bedroom. Today I will finish upstairs and tidy the main floor again. And then I feel the house is almost where I want it. I still want to reorganize the under the cupboards. But so far so good. I'm on my way to a better me with a better life. Enjoying my time with my granddaughter and my son this summer.

So I'm not exactly where I want to be today I am where I am. My little man decided to give his sickness to me. He's feeling better each day I get worse. LOL It's ok though he was miserable. I am glad he's feeling better. As for me.....I feel awful. I am not really eating and what I do eat isn't great for me. I am afraid to check the scale to see if I'm still on track. I'm hoping to maintain this week and pick it back up next week. I feel like someone is sitting on me now so I really don't want to push myself to far to fast. But at the same time I am ready to get moving now. Happens this way often.

It is now March 2018. I haven't really done much to lose weight the past couple of months until recently. I joined the Official 'Eat Up, Slim Down' Challenge group this week and am trying to get back on track. I even went and bought a new weekly planner to journal my food and workouts and my every day life and keep it all together in one book. I have tracked 3 of the 4 days so far. I found my old book and took my weight loss tracker and taped it in the new one. After getting it together I realized I lost 9# since I started that journal. It isn't much but it is 9# I don't have to lose now. I'll take it. Today I didn't do much of anything. My hubby is on midnights this week yet so I took my kids and we went out for a bit. Dropped one off at work and took 2 to my friends to hang out for a few hours. Sat most of the time while we were there too. Tomorrow will be better. I have been so busy most days that on my day off I usually just clean up the house. ALL DAY LONG!! So today I just didn't feel like it so I didn't.

I have my lunch ready for tomorrow. I am going to get up alittle earlier to make some cream of wheat for breakfast and grab workout clothes. I am going to try a workout at work while on my lunch break since it is suppose to be cold all week again. As long as no one is there I will be able to work out. I don't like to workout when ppl watch unless I go to the gym which I don't have membership to. So I just use the Dr. PT room and his equipment. Office Mgr took the wifi though so now I have to use my data. We will see how it goes.

Time to get the monster boy to bed. I let him up an extra 30 min while I typed my journal here.

Here's to a great rest of the week!!! emoticon emoticon

So it is now 2018. My banana had her baby and they are living with us now. I have been slowly getting my ducks back in order. Our household has been invaded by the flu and fevers so far the past month and half. I am finally starting to feel better. I wish I wasn't so stuffy now though. I'll take it over blowing my nose every 15 seconds though.

So January is about 1/2 over now. I have finally updated my SP page and I cleaned out my emails. I have some goals to work on too. Tomorrow is my day off so I am going to get some breakfasts ready for the week so I can grab and go. I don't get up in time to eat and I am the first person in at work. So while I start up the office I can put the breakfast in the microwave and eat it before everyone shows up. I also need to get a lunch casserole or something ready for the week because I don't pack my lunch the night before and it will save so much time when I am running late every morning LOL. I don't sleep well so I don't get up earlier then I already do. Going to try melatonin Tuesday since Wednesday is my next day off. I don't know how it will effect me so I want to make sure I am off the next day when I try it. I have been drinking 5 glasses of water at work lately but then I don't drink the remaining when I get home. hmmmm

Here's to a great week. I will see what I can get done tomorrow to help me stay on track for a great week.

So I have been on this journey for some time. I really finally got into it when I found myself pregnant with my now 5 yr old. I have been up and down now since having him and seems like forever that I'm bouncing from 155-153 lbs all the time.

I keep saying the same thing over and over. Tomorrow I will start. Then I don't follow through. Tomorrow I will work out and then find myself sitting on the sofa. Tomorrow I will journal and keep track and again not do it. Tomorrow I will wake up early and sleep in past time when I need to get ready for work instead. I am tired of all these tomorrow comments.

My small step to get back on track is that I have been walking at my lunch break every day but today I had to go home to get things straightened financially. I need to add a walk on my days off (Wednesday and Sunday and after work on Saturdays). I had started to track my food, water, steps but quickly stopped.

My banana will be having a baby soon and I am trying to get things ready for her and the baby and I find myself pushing things off that I want for me. The baby shower is now over and I need to get back to me. I felt better about myself and my life when I worked out. Why do I continue to push it off? Seems like I am inevitably sabotaging myself. This journal is my new start to the healthier me.
