Weekly Weigh-in

Weigh-in 250.5 -1.3!! Very happy with this, but really wanted to get under 250! This is my goal for this week!

So I feel much better about blogging now that I've decided to do it when I want to instead of feeling obligated to post everyday. It really became a chore and that's not why I started this. I started blogging to help keep me and anyone else motivated and as a journal for me. When I first started it really did help me and I enjoyed doing a post everyday, but now it's not so much fun. So please continue to read even if it's not as regular as before. I enjoy reading every one's comments!

Thanks to everyone who reads this and here's to healthy choices!!

So I'm not sure if I just have a really boring life or if everyone else just has really exciting life's. I read other blogs and think to myself "Wow, I never have anything that exciting happen to me". I sit down to start blogging and have to really think of things to say. I don't know maybe I just need to write down everything that my daughter says or does or every crazy thought that enters my mind.

Some days it's so easy for me to blog, but lately I just can't think of anything to say. I guess that's the way my life is going. I'm so tired and just so blah about everything. Maybe I need a change of pace or something. I'm just really frustrated...

Weekly weigh-in 251.8 -.4

Okay...I didn't do as well as I was hoping, but at least I lost!!! I'm hoping that next week I get under 250!! I'm recommitting to exercise this week. The last few weeks I have really slacked off in this area and I know that has a lot to do with my weigh-ins. So I'm determined to get back into walking.

My whole family enjoys getting out and walking together so I need to just embrace that. I feel like I'm not getting anything out of it when I walk with my daughter, but just getting up and doing something is better then sitting on the couch. And it's good for my daughter to get some exercise,too. She definitely goes to bed easier when she has walked.

My goal is to lose 5 lbs a month and the rate I'm going this month that is not gonna happen, I'll be lucky to lose 3. So time to recommit and get down to business. I've also noticed that when I don't blog I lose motivation. I guess I feel obligated to lose weight and be healthy when I'm blogging. I don't know if obligated is the right word, but it helps me a lot when I post.

What are you working on this week? Here's to healthy choices!!!

This weekend was a blast (even though I was sick)!! On Saturday we had the celebration for my sister and her husband!! I didn't take a huge portion of dinner and was actually unable to eat the whole plate!! I actually thought to myself, "okay your full so stop" and so I did!! Then came dessert time, I was so nervous about this, but I did good. I let my aunt cut the cheesecakes so they were smaller portions then I normally cut and I had 1 piece and stopped. I'm not gonna lie I was tempted to go back for another, but knew it wasn't worth it!! At the end of the party I wrapped up the leftover dinner and cheesecake and sent them home with my sister!! I've been thinking about the cheesecake since Saturday, but it doesn't hurt thinking about it!!

My husband is off of school all this week, so hopefully we will get some quality family time in!! We got our potatoes planted in our garden yesterday. I can't wait for the fresh veggies!! I'm looking forward to seeing my weigh-in tomorrow! I'm feeling good about my choices this week and I truly believe it was a good thing for me to gain weight, it got me back on track!!

Have a wonderful Monday and here's to healthy choices!!

Weekly weigh in 252.2 +.6 and I'm pissed

I'm not mad because I gained weight and thought I shouldn't have no I'm pissed at myself. I relaxed and stopped drinking water, tracking what I eat etc. This was a good reminder to me that I need to be vigilant every minute of the day. There is no not worrying about it for a few days, no I need to worry about all the time. So, I guess it was a good thing that I gained weight, it was just the kick in the butt that I needed.

Sorry I haven't been posting this week. I have this horrible sinus thing going on. So just taking it easy!!

Hope everyone is having a good week and here's to healthy choices!!

I had a great weekend!! My scentsy party was awesome, got to hang out with friends and we ended up only having to go to Springfield on Sunday!!! I think I did pretty good with my eating this weekend. Of course, I wasn't perfect but I think I did good.

So this week is super busy for me, on one hand I'm excited about it, but on the other it stresses me out having so much planned. But, by the grace of God, I'll get through it. Saturday we are having a party for my sister and her new husband so I'm excited. I have to make 2 cheesecakes for it and that is my favorite thing in this entire world. I would like to think that I'll stay away from them, but I know me and I won't. As soon as it gets cut I'll be digging in. Maybe I should hang my skirt up in the living room so I can see it all night!!

So how was your weekend? Here's to healthy choices!!

The Agenda

In my opinion today is the worst day ever. I absolutely hate this day. I just don't understand how doing tricks on people is fun and how it became a holiday? I don't maybe it's because I'm so gullible and when I was younger I always got tricks played on me or maybe it's because I can't ever think of any good tricks to do on people, but I really wish I could just sleep through this day!

So this weekend I am having a Scentsy party and can't wait. I think it's just what I need after the week that I have had. Having  friends come over and just hang out for the evening is gonna be great!! I don't really get out of the house or really have that many friends so when I get to hang out with the girls it's really special to me. I'm trying to come up with some good snack foods to have that are healthy but that everyone will enjoy. So if  you have any suggestions please let me know.

Sunday we have about 200 miles of driving to do around Oregon. We have to go to my hubby's work study site to see where it's at. He has his interview on Monday and then we have to go the opposite direction to Springfield.(not gonna tell you why, don't want to jinx anything!) So lots of sitting, but I'm gonna pack snacks for the ride so we don't stop and just get junk!!

So what do you have planned for the weekend? Do you like this holiday? Here's to healthy choices
