I Know I Keep Disappearing!

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

I am continuing to try to lose weight, but unfortunately my life has been extremely stressful.

I love my new job, but it's a lot more work than before and I find myself taking half hour lunches just to keep up. With the weather getting nicer, I am getting outside more and have worked out three times this week, which is awesome since for almost a year, I've been maybe working out once a week.

I still can't get to my elliptical, which is what I really need! Our basement is slowly getting fixed from when it flooded back in February and so I'm hoping within the next month I'll be able to get my elliptical out (as it's behind everything that was shoved in the corner to save it from water damage).

My daughter is still very sick and a lot of my time is taken up caring for her as well as my son is STILL not sleeping through the night.

I know my messed up sleep is what's really wrecking me--I just don't have the energy I need and just getting day to day is sometimes enough. Andy has taken to 2 to 4 hour wakeful periods between 12 and 4 am and will be up for the day around 6am every day @_@

But I'm back up in my weight and so I'm trying my best to get back on track. I have lost about 10 pounds in the past 6 weeks, so yay for that! But I keep bouncing up and down in these next 5 pounds, so I'm hoping to exercise (even if it's just 10 minutes) every day and get myself to continue going DOWN.

And yeah, my goal of getting down to 185 by Easter...SO did not happen. February was an extremely stressful month for us, I got about 25 hours of sleep a week and there was a 5 day period where I got a total of 4 hours of sleep. We were in and out of the hospital 11 times that month, I gained almost 15 pounds that month from the stress, lack of sleep and horrible eating.

But I'm going to keep trucking along :)

    Oh no! Sounds like a crazy year!
    Cut back on any unnecessary things and try to be efficient where you can. Get sleep! It's so important!

    But also, give yourself some slack. You have a lot going on. Instead of having 8 big goals maybe you have 2: drink ____ glasses of water and don't east fast food for lunch (or whatever works for you). You can do it!
