Weigh-in day.

Well I think that I did pretty good. It is that time of the month so eating has always been hard and the water weight….excuses I guess. My weight was 216.6. So, I lost 3.4 pounds. I can live with that. I need to work on getting better control over eating but overall it was a TON better. I am going to work on better lunch planning, that is usually my issue. Not to mention….snacking. I also need to get back to the gym. It is all so hard to juggle when you are ALWAYS tired. I also need to work on getting Avery to sleep in her OWN bed….When am I going to do this? Maybe I will try tonight.


I suck

I have really decided that this has gone too far. I have been “trying” to get back to eating right. It is ridiculous that I have let it all go again. My weigh-in day is now Thursday. This past Thursday I was at 220lbs even. My goal is still 150. I am going to do a mini reward every 10 pounds.


I just have not been able to do it. I am so unmotivated. Every time that I think that I am….I fail. Am I TRYING to fail? I do not know. Am I afraid of success? I do not know. I DO want to lose the weight I know that, but I have to wonder if I am mentally holding myself back. I am working on a change in mindset. I weighed this am and am back up to 188. I was down to 185.2. My lowest was 184. I understand that is not horrible. I feel like I am sabotaging myself. I have had A LOT of stressful times recently, and in my life I turn to food. I know that many other people can relate to this. It tastes good and feels good eating it. I can always justify and tell myself I can “re-start” tomorrow. I am trying to remember how it was when I was really motivated and how I can get that back. I DO know that it is a mind-set. I feel like it is a cop-out to not just do it. I am addicted to food. I am a junkie…

Quick update.

Well I went the whole week back on plan, mostly. A couple of evening I may have “overindulged” but probably not over the extra points. I am doing momentum not points plus. I lost 2.4 pounds. I was 187.6 last Saturday and 185.2 this am. I am going to try very hard to do better with staying on plan this week. I would love to lose 2.6 again. I am 1.2 from my lowest weight since starting in late April 2010. I was off pretty much from just before Thanksgiving to about last week. I hope that I am back!


No home mgmt binder. Life hs thrown me some curve balls. I may o one at a later date, but I am not doing it for now. I am working on my list of 101 in 1001. I really think that it is something that I want to do. I am calling March 1 my start date. More on this soon.

I have been doing HORRIBLY on the diet/weight loss front. I have been doing poorly since before Thanksgiving. I got on the scale Sat am and was 187.6. I am up 3.6 pounds from my lowest weight. While I would rather have not gained, I am glad that it was not enormous. It is also TOM for me, so that does not help. I have been on plan for 2 days now. It is a start. I have not done two days in a row since before Thanksgiving. I feel like I am back 🙂

Office Closet.

I decided to do the office closet today. It WAS a mess and I was over it. I thought that is would be a quick clean. It was about 2 1/2 hours of work.

Weekly Organization


This week’s Challenge is going to be a Home Management Binder. I was not going to do this but think that I will do it on a level that works for me. I am not sure what I am going to include at this time but will think about it. I will probably not have it posted until Saturday. I work Mondays from 10:30-9 (and have a root canal tomorrow at 8) and then T-TH from 8-6:30. I have 4 kids that include a set of two year old twins. Time is sparse. I also did a big cleaning project. My back is not super sore. Guess I sound whiny….I do not mean to sound that way. The next post is going to be my cleaning project from today!

Head on over to A Bowl Full of Lemons to join the challenge!
