Going back to Monday WI's

I just can't get my mind wrapped around anything other than a Monday WI. I know - it's strange - but that's just what I'm used to. So WI today . . .


Great. In the 190s again. :( I realized this weekend how out of shape I am. My son started riding his bike with no training wheels. I was trying to keep up. As in run/jog, yeah. right. And this is from the same person that has done 4 5ks I believe. Ugh. Need to get back into it. So I told him, any night he wants to ride his bike - I will run with him. He was so excited. He said - "we'll exercise together!". Yup. Exercise. Need. to. do. that.

Wednesday WI

Drum Roll - 188.8

Well I have the 180's mastered. :sigh:  That (if you are keeping track) is a 1.6 lb GAIN from two weeks ago since I forgot didn't weigh in last week. I have been bouncing all around the 180s all year long. I am tired of it. I want to get out of the 180s. I need to stop with the excuses. If like is crazy and busy it doesn't give me the right to eat whatever I want. If I'm having a bad day, I need to suck it up and do something to make it better. Food is not going to make it better! Well, hopefully I can keep those thoughts in my mind. :sigh: Easier said than done.

New Week

And a new outlook. I'm tired of being unhealthy and tired. :) I went grocery shopping yesterday and spend $300! Yikes. That's what happens when you don't shop for almost a month. YIKES!! But now I had a healthy breakfast and no excuse. I'm tired of all my clothes being frumpy and not fitting correctly. I'm tired of wearing jeans all the time because I don't want to wear shorts (well ok I don't have shorts that FIT me to wear). It all changes. NOW. This day. I'm going to take it one event at a time. One week, one day, one meal, one temptation, one second at a time. I can do this. . . . (And I will really weigh in on Wednesday this week - I promise!!! =) )

Working on it

I'm working on revamping my thinking and my mind. I started a list of things I need to do in order to get healthy. It's almost not about losing weight anymore (although yes, I want need to do that). It's about getting healthy. Eating donuts for breakfast and stuffing my face is not going to make me healthy. It's going to make this pain in my calf not go away. It's going to make these spider veins grow and multiply. It's going to make this pooch of a belly grow. I don't want that. It's going to make it impossible to play with my children. I'll be too tired to want to play. I'll get worn out fast. I don't want that. I don't want any of that. So it's back to the drawing board and I will get through this. This is just a bump in the road. I will get over it and I will surpass it. :)

Book Review - Surrogate

Surrogate by F. Rober Lea was a very entertaining book! I have to say I really liked this book. The title caught my eye because my hubby and I had trouble getting pregnant (although we didn't have to go too far with getting help) so I thought this would be an interesting book. Well, it was to say the least!! There are two couples that are both having trouble having babies and the way they come up with to solve their problem is . . . well different! I don't want to ruin it for you! I really loved this story. There were places that the author could have expended on the story (it felt rushed in a few places) but the overall plot and storyline I thought were great. And it's a short read and very fast. I read it in a day. Very cute, entertaining book!

I'm linking this post to Heather's Book Club Friday.

10 Week Summer Challenge - Week Three

Ah well, Oops! I forgot to WI today. Although it's probably a good thing as I have been HORRIBLE lately. Ugh. Why can't I just get this through my thick skull???? On the up side - I have cooked at home the last three nights in a row. And the last two nights, the kids all said, "Mommy you make the best food."  Ah. Yeah. I need to keep doing that. I will continue tonight as dh is going out with a friend so it's me and the kids. So it's Mac and Cheese night. :) I think I'll heat up a spicy sausage to go with mine. Yum. But I really REALLY need to go grocery shopping. I am BARE. My refrigerator is empty. I'm on my last inkling of milk. I have no eggs. I have no OJ. I had to throw out all my corn tortillas yesterday as there was mold on them (must have been too moist on the refrigerator. ugh). But I have no desire to go grocery shopping. :sigh: I will buck up. Especially since we are going camping next weekend so of course I have to get food. Now the question is - what are we going to eat. . .
