12.2 Pounds

Thursday, July 24, 2008

So I lost a 5# bag of Flour & a 5# bag of Sugar, and working on another 5 lbs. I am beyond excited. I've already realized the burn from working out it a reward as much as it is a curse. It has to inspire me to do more.

Taking the pictures yesterday and really looking at them was disturbing to me. I was feeling low, and sad, yet it inspired me that things had to be done. So this morning I set my alarm & the kids & I went and met up with Eileen for a walk. I'm not sure how far we walked. My pedometer needs a battery. We had a blast, it was overcast, sprinkling a little, hot, and humid. Can't wait to see her again (maybe tomorrow evening for a walk again).

I've also done a bit of reflecting and praying to help me find inner strength. I put the kids back on the school schedule (bed by 8:30 and up by 7am) figured it would be easier to maintain that and keep the stability in the house. That means momma needs to be in bed by 11 at the latest.

Hubby is coming home Saturday!!!! YIPPEE!!! I am sooooo excited! Hopefully we can schedule family walks each evening, yes, every night. I know, it's a lot to fit into a day, but I've gotta get a head start before the weather changes, cause it's gonna be either more difficult (to be outside in cold weather) or more expensive (to join a gym). As for now, I want to bust butt for as much as I can so that I can keep the trend going over the winter and the holidays (yikes, I don't want to think about that yet.... )

Well, I'm up to 5 cups of water already and determined to get back on track and stay on track for today, tomorrow is a new day, and I will continue to gain momentum, wisdom, stamina, and strength, and loose excess weight, allowing me to be the outgoing happy women that has been hiding all these years ;-)

    I'm glad to hear your husband is coming home! Mine is going to come home friday evening as long as nothing changes.

    I know about trying to start back with school schedule. We haven't started yet. Me and the kids have to wake up at 5 am each morning. The bus comes a little after 6. We aren't going to start waking up that early until we have to! We have 13 days left until school starts. I have no idea why they keep starting back earlier and earlier.

    It is awesome the weight you've lost so far! I'm so proud of you. Keep up the great work.
