Finally hit a milestone!

Monday, March 07, 2011

Been a while since I have blogged. Wow, lol. I have just been busy with life and wanting to get on here and haven't made enough time. So on February 25th I hit 30lbs lost! YIPEE!!! I am so happy to see that number! I am really starting to feel good, physically. I know I have a little way to go, but overall, knowing I have knocked off 30 LBS! YEE-HAW! I have hit a few speed bumps. The Jan 28 day bootcamp challenge really boosted my weight loss and I actually completed it! But failing to plan for Feb, left me planning to fail! I did not have a schedule, or my commitment for that fact! I knew I would keep up on my 6 days of cardio, and some ST. So by the second week I got busy. I have a great group that keeps me focused, and has a wonderful program every month. I let little things get in the way and wasn't as focused as I was in Jan. Soooo, here I am again in March, same way. First week I slack off and not getting it done. I have really been through some tough times emotionally. Some anxiety, some depression. UGH! Then last week I really let loose. I drank too much alcohol, and ate some really bad foods! Ended up bloated and gaining weight at the end of the week. I know these are things that are bound to happen. I lose my way and lose strength. I can't keep it together all the time! LIFE HAPPENS! I just have to know how to handle it. Not with food, and certainly not with alcohol. I love my family and think that I need to do EVERYTHING for EVERYBODY! Only I can make it happen, well, its running me down. I need to delegate and NOT feel guilty. Here I am, second week of March, back in it! I still have weight to lose. I have goals. And if i keep screwin' up it will just take longer. I need to stay focused!!!

Onto another subject...I am going on vacation! YEP! Thank you to my BEST FRIEND! I will be going to see her in Arizona in 2weeks! YOW! I so need this! WE so need this! I had not planned on going, with so much going on here. Kids, work, scheduling and finances were getting in the way. Well, maybe I was getting in the way. Before I know it Kris has me a ticket, "booked and payed for no backing out now" she says, lol! So, telling my husband, he gave his blessing of course, and he says to me "the world will not stop spinning while you are gone, you need to go on vacation and see your friend!" wow! And then, my boss, she says no problem! And my husband has enough family to help out. SO OFF I GOOOO!!!! Oh I just want to cry right now just thinking about it! Ohhh my friend, you are such a blessing!

Well, I think that's long enough. Maybe next time I won't wait so long, lol!
