I have not been here to update my blog …I just have not given myself the time. So I am sitting here watching the biggest loser and I reminded myself to update my blog. As I opened the new entry one of the contestants was weighing in and said..”I grew up and I Gave up” WOW. Nail on the head. I did that. I went to college and focused on school. I got engaged and focused on the wedding. I got married and focused on building a house. We built a house and made a home. Then I became pregnant and lost my job. Then I got a new demanding job. I tried to balance motherhood, wife, worker, and life. I never made time for me. I grew up and took on adult challenges and gave up on me.
Now I fight to maintenance a balance in my life. Work, Gym, Mom, eat right, wife, friend, Sister. I jam a 30 hour day into a 24. And it would be easier if I didn’t go to the gym but I know how I feel when I am not at this weight. I know I want to see how far I can go on this journey.
My hubby starts his new hours next week. And I plan to cut back my workouts to 3 times a week at Next Level Performance. I will try to do workouts at home but here I am on the computer and not working out. I did run to target tonight and Hannafords so that killed a lot of time on me. I need to focus on eating clean.
That brings me to recapping the last few weeks. So after my back to back 2.6 losses per week, Last week I lost .4. I was okay with that. I didn’t workout as much and I didn’t write my food down. There was some emotional eating and cheating. This last week there was a lot more cheating because of my and ty’s bdays. So I gained a killer 3.2 and that put back down to below 50 pounds. But I am going to climb back up.
I do worry that it was so easy to gain that much with what cheating I did do. Now this week I have thanksgiving. I am cooking so that will allow me to stay in control I will know that nobody is putting sticks and stick of butter in things. Good luck this week to everyone.
