A Stone

Saturday, August 13, 2016

I'm sitting here before my computer and not that thing that I can think of to write.

Sure, I'm typing and letting all of you know that I am back, but I'm not sure what to say.

I have been slacking big time.

Using excuses.

Not caring.

Just doing the basics and that's all.

What can I say? I'm a Mother with four children that are growing up. One flew the nest, one doesn't know what to do with himself, one is going into grade twelve and one is going into grade ten.

I will be homeschooling again with the youngest. I have to admit, that cuts into my day like a knife through butter. I'm constantly at hand because she has dyslexia and we have to get her officially tested for the school. $$

DH is working as always and getting one job done after another.

I just feel like I'm a stone in the middle of a whirlwind.

I don't know how to describe it.

Needless to say, I've gained weight and I am at the heaviest I have ever been.

Not happy about that.

So, here I am.

Missing my buddies, so I logged on today and decided.

Now or never.

I'm going to do this.

(Help me)... ;)

    One step at a time, one choice at a time. It's just like motherhood. We make mistakes, we fight each and every day to do this right, we get disappointed, there are moments we believe we're the worst parents in the world, but we can't quit, can we? Why quit on ourselves?
    Believe you can do this and you're half way there.

    So glad you're back, I missed you! I had this same feeling in January and decided I'm just going to do it. I've lost 25 lbs since January 1st. I just started with 10 minutes of some kind of exercise every day. Some days it was just dancing to MTV on the TV. Then I started slowly cutting back on my portions. I still eat all the same stuff just less of it. I still have a lot more to lose but I only think in terms of 10 lbs at a time, that way I don't feel overwhelmed. It's not easy but I just take it day by day and don't let the setbacks throw me off track. If I can do this anyone can! You know where I'm at if you want to talk! emoticon

    What helped me more than anything is to commit to "Just 10 Minutes" of exercise every day. Maybe you could do that as the beginning to your homeschooling sessions? No matter what, get at least 10 minutes. I pray it will help you!

    Hello my fear friend!
    I also am the heavyist I have ever been.!

    Life gets in the way.

    Hard to believe how much has happened over the years.

    My son got married 2 months ago.

    My daughter has been unemployed for 11months and starts her new job as a domestic carer next week.

    My husband is not working as he had a detached retina twice in the same eye.

    I have joined an 8 week education /excercise program and have started my healthy eating today.

    Lets do this together.

    Love you.xxx

    I'm so happy to see you back. You were always such a source of motivation for me. Try not to dwell on your absence here. You are here now and thats what counts.

    Use this as a stepping stone to learn from, get the family involved, even walking 15 minutes is better than none. I'm sorry you feel like a stone, that's got to be depressing. If you find stones, rocks, twigs outside, move them so you gain control

    I'm a mom of 4, everyone is gone but this last overly hormonal 15 year old girl, she's always ruining my groove, but we fight that's what mom's do, so stick your chest in, and get your mind straight, we will get thru this ok.
