Getting Back on Track

Well, if you check my food log blog you'll see I actually posted today after a month and a half! I didn't realize how long it had been since I actually wrote down what I ate! I did pretty good today, but I worked so I wasn't around the house to snack. Tuesday is the day I start working out, I'm totally putting it off because I hate exercising, but it has to be done! No big NYE plans for me, I'm sure I'll be in bed before it hits midnight! My hubby has to work, so no romantic night or dinner or toasts! :( Oh well, after 8 years in his field he's always worked NYE so I'm use to it!

Well, we're almost done with the holidays. I can't believe Christmas is already over, but at the same time I'm so ready for the new year to start. I've decided I have to get my head on straight and start exercising and eating right again. I've been doing pretty good until about 2 weeks ago when I started nibbling on candy and cookies and ALL THE WRONG FOODS! I always say tomorrow is a new day and not to say well next Monday or at the first of the year, but not only is tomorrow a new day but the first of the year I will start exercising! I need to go buy my CIB and skim milk and some boca burgers so I can boost my protein and drop a few more pounds I know I put on over the last 10 days. I haven't gotten on the scale because I don't want to see what it says! Will post again soon!

Happy Holidays To All My Internet Friends

Just wanted to do a quick post to say Happy Holidays to everyone! I can't believe it is already that time of year! Boy have my eating habits have been terrible. I mean way bad. Nothing but snacks, candy, and stuff I know I shouldn't be eating. I've made myself sick a couple times and you'd think that'd stop me, but yea right, my brain is just messed up. Anyways, tomorrow is a new day. We've had company for the last two weeks and had a couple Christmas parties, so that has a lot to do with how I'm eating. Weight hasn't changed, fluctuating between 143 and 146. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

It is hard to believe it has been one year since my surgery. It all went by so much faster than I ever thought it would. I am just amazed with the things I do now. There were so many things I'd dread doing, like getting dressed to go shopping, or cleaning, basically anything that was active and not laying around. My life has changed so so very much. I am still mentally challenged every day when I want a handful of this or a nibble of that or something I know I shouldn't eat and I've accepted that this is something I will have to deal with for the rest of my life. I just tell my self everyday, "today is a new day" so any errors I made yesterday are done and over and I have to start fresh today, there will never be a "well starting next week, or starting Monday, or I mine as well wait until the first of the month. Everyday is a new beginning for me.

Smack.....Today It Hit Me

Ya know you read/hear people talk about how their lives change so much after WLS and how they do things they never did before blah blah blah. I mean, I know things are different for me in so many ways, but today I think it really hit me that things HAVE changed, in a big big big way. It snowed today about 3 inches, so after school of course Jacob was dying to go out sledding so we (me, Jacob, & Athena) all got bundled up and went outside to play in the snow. We were out for about 45 minutes but in that short time we did so much. I was running around, pulling Athena on the sled, throwing snow, rolling up snow to make a big ball and so much more. I would NEVER have been able to do that a year ago. It was such a moment for me being out there having fun with my kids. I think about everything I've missed over the last years because my weight got in the way! I'm so greatful for this second chance in life I've been given.
