Hello,

Well yesterday I exercised for the 30 minutes like i said i would.. yippppyyyyy. I am very proud of myself in that respect.. but my eating I dont know what is going on with me... but i am slowly working on that.. other than that things are going ok... I did ab work out yesterday and today.. I know it... means its working right...

Well not to much is going on around here... we lowered the price of the house to see it any one will want to come and see it... if it doesnt do something now.. then we are going to wait for another year or so to try again.. the Market has gotten pretty slow.. but it is winter... well have a great day.. I will talk to you guys later..

I am very proud of both of you... keep up the great work...

I have to buy a scale... Carly

Carly, winter is a hard time to sell a house. I've been watching some around here and it seems like even the houses in good neighborhoods are on the market alot longer than they used to be. Don't get discouraged...it'll sell. Hey, congrats on getting some exercise in. Bet that felt good!

Ellen-Good job on getting some exercise in too. I lucked out (sort of) with having a yeast allergy so I can't eat bread, pizza, donuts, etc. I love the smell of it still though. Very intoxicating....

Well I went to the gym last night with my sister and her husband. We did the life circuit 2 times. I am sore. I think tomorrow night, it'll be one set for me. My body just isn't quite ready for that yet. I really enjoy the feeling of a good workout though. I've never really felt like that before so I'm loving it.

Today is errand running. I have to go to the bank, go to Walmart, help my sister babysit all the young uns' and get Tiana to dance. But before all that, I need to get my laundry put away. My hubby got a Neptune washer for us and laundry does go a lot faster. You can fit more clothes in the washer than a standard washer and then it spins them out so well, you don't have to dry them as long. I tell ya, my laundry room floor has never looked so clean. I suppose I should get on with it and finish writing out the deposit slips. Check back later.

Let's all have an excellent on-plan day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Afternoon....afternoon...afternoon

I just got back home. I got my hair cut today and then sat around chatting with my sisters'. I think I lost another pound yesterday. Some yucky stomach bug got to me. I feel much better today.

I haven't really eaten very much today. Just don't feel all that hungry yet.
Tonight I'll be going to the gym with my sister again. And I still haven't drank enough water yet today. Let see, what else is going on...not much. I started a new quilt last night. And my next semester of school starts next week. I had made myself this promise that I would be more organized, keep the house cleaner, and get myself on a healthy program to lose weight. I've got the program part out of the way...but my house still looks like I have a small tribe of maniacs running around, and I am about as disorganized as a person can be without going insane.

Gotta get the laundry going or my pile is gonna get bigger. Definitely don't want any of that.

Chris

Good job Chris on getting some exercise in. I know it is hard getting enough water in, but sometimes you just have to force yourself to garb a bottle of water instead of somethingelse. Keep going!!

Carly~great job on the exercise and the water!! I still have to fight the temptation to snack at night. It is so quiet after I put the kids to bed, sometimes I just can't help "rewarding/comforting" myself.

For me things are going well, I am a little stressed out with the kiddos but everyday brings the day my mom gets back even closer. I am doing ok withthe food~not horrible, but not the greatest. Water has been great over 64oz a day! I did exercise this AM I got the whole hour tape in, plus some extra sit-ups. I did not exercise yesterday-slept really badly and just could not get up, but again, I got some extra sit-ups and push ups in while the kiddies were watching a movie. Just some running around this afternoon, hopefully all the kids cooperate. Have a great day!!

Quick post...I'm on the way out the door to get the girls from dance. I worked out with my sister again last night...and soaked in the hot tub afterwards. Talk about heaven.

Carly-You're taking steps and progressing. I think you're doing awesome. Food is a hard one for me too. It'll click soon. Keep up with what you are doing and don't let it go. I'm pulling for you. I ain't a hero, I'm working my butt off and it hurts...

Ellen-Soon, things will be back to normal at your house? The one thing I still can't do is sit ups and push ups. I'm hoping those life circuit machines at the gym help with that. I have very little upper body strength and abs...non existent. I'm working on it.

The one thing that scares me and makes me uncomfortable with all this weight loss stuff is actually being slimmer. I've been overweight for so long, and this is the life I've had...I don't know what to do when I'm different. And does that make sense? I can actually feel the panic rise when I think about being thin. It almost makes me want to give in and eat my cares away.

Gotta go...

I know i will get there.... I have to be 20lbs lighter by August... because that is my 20th wedding anniv. and i want to look extra special for hubby.. 20 years is a long time.. and no one thought we would make a year... and the funny thing is we have always had a really great relationship.. your normal hoopla but other then that a great relationship...

Hey ladies...sorry for checkin in so late, but I was babysitting my sisters kiddos for her and that went a little bit longer than anticipated. She had to take my youngest nephew (17 months) to the doctor because his breathing was labored, he was wheezing, and tuggin on his ears again. Well, the poor little honey has double ear infections, and upper respiratory infection, and his oxygen level wasn't soo good either. The doctor says he probably has asthma, since he's been doing this for every cold he has had this year.

I worked on my quilt tonight, since Jen couldn't go work out with me. I know I should have gone by myself, but I frankly don't feel so hot either. My stomach is just slightly off. ANyhow, I got the whole front done and next it just putting the backing on, machine quilting it, and add some binding. I'll take a pic of it and post it so you can see what it looks like when its done.

I better go, my wrist is killing me. Time to rest it a bit.

Carly, my littlest one, Nicole, has asthma and was like that too when she was littler. I mean, she's only 3 yrs old but she hasn't had to use the nebulizer near as much as he has this year. But when she was around his age...it was every cold and about every 3 weeks we were giving her more albuterol and then would end up taking her in to get a prescription for prednisone to open her airways. I think she is growing out of it though.

Today I'm okay so far. I didn't get to the gym last night because of Conner being sick and I was too nervous about going it alone. TOday I WILL do something. My SIL is coming to get all the girls. She's taking them to Chuckee Cheese and then she's going to keep them overnight. Get this, she's renting a hotel room so they can all go hot tubbing and swimming. Robin, my SIL, is the one who had the foot surgery. They had to remove part of her foot from an infection. She is healing up great and she is catching up for all the time she missed with the girls. Man, I wish I had an aunt like her when I was little.

Well better go. My hair is drying and if I don't stick the blow dryer to it soon, I'm gonna look like one strange geek the rest of the day. Check back later.

I have 11 more days of all the kids!! Mom gets back in on the 31st (15days all together) I don't count the weekend, because my dad has them. I have been ok, but eating has been my downfall. I just couldn't stop myself today, but I am determined to do better nad try harder tomorrow. (it hepls that I don't have anymore candy in the house) I did exercise today nad feel great. I love the way I feel after exercising, but it is difficult to get the time in. well, I have to get to bed, DS is back in school tomorrow and I have to crack the whip to get my sibs to do their work. At least we will be back to following a scedule and things will go easier.
