today was a great day. It was busy as usual, but I feel like I did pretty good eating, I guess I could have done better than a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. but that is what I made for the boys, and it looked so good. But I did a lot better with the junk food, and not eating quite so much all day. And I did 1 hour of exercise. half hour of running this morning, and at least 1/2 an hour of vacuuming at the church tonight. (it was our turn to clean. all in all a pretty good day. the only sucky thing was that I only lost .2 pounds this week. Hopefully with adding another 1/2 an hour a day of exercise and keeping within my points i will lose more.

today was a great day to walk. It was over cast and a decent temperature. Next week I am going to need to up my activity. or at least make sure I walk twice a day or ride and walk. any ideas on what would be a good addition?

yesterday I did not get a walk in. We had therapy, park day and grandma and Tom to visit. when they were gone it was dinner, showers, and a quick trip out to rejuvenate before I put the kids to bed. by this time it was really dark. Today we had therapy early too but we walked to get Logan from school. Jared is gone until Sunday so I am going to enjoy the walking time, just for a good happy feeling time.
Eating is going well so far this week. I haven't been writing anything down, but I have been watching more closely at what I eat. Next week I will have to start writing.

We had therapy today, so I wasn't able to walk the kids to school, so I ran/walked to get Logan from Kindergarten. It was hot, and hard (pushing 70+ pounds of kids) but it felt good.
Eating today is going good so far, but the water intake needs to be pushed.

my goals

It has been even longer since i posted here. I guess I stepped off the weight loss wagon for awhile. But it is such a needed thing for me that I hopped back on. It is over whelming to me because I have a goal to lose about 65 more pounds. I can't seem to get my butt out of bed at 6 am, and if I don't exercise at that time, it doesn't happen. So I decided to just start again by walking to and from school and that is going to have to be good for now. I want to make that a habit, and then still try to get up early to run. Eventually Logan will learn how to ride his bike and we will ride to school. I am really looking forward to that. I am going to need your help-someone has to read this occasionally right? besides myself, so I plan to be accountable to you, and blog everyday, or almost every day. I need encouragement and whatever else you think I need that day. I wanted to join curves- to have someone to be accountable to, and to get that strength training in, but its just not going to work. So I am going to work on it myself.
So today I walked to the school and back, and I am going to head out again to walk as soon as it is time to get Logan from Kindergarten. I will post my food later. I am going to try and stick to the Weight Watchers Plan. I know it, so I just need to get back on. Thanks for listening to my rambling.
I am back to add a little more. Today's eating was okay. It wasn't great, but it is better than it has been.I had a lot of veggies, not enough of milk, or grains. It is a work in progress, right? Walking was good. I figured out that to the school is about .7 of a mile-so probably a mile and a half once you count going into the school and back out, and about an hour and twenty minutes-some walking Logan's speed. I need to set some goals. so my goals are:
1. To make walking a habit
2. To eat healthier, and start counting points again
3. To get more sleep every night (making sure I go to bed earlier)
4. To get my family involved in making healthy choices for all of us
5. Start with losing 10% of my weight
I think this is good for now.
I am trying to remind myself that I am important, that I deserve the time I take to exercise, and that I can accomplish whatever I set my mind to.
thanks for sticking with me this long!
