We've had gorgeous weather for about a week now, and it's been SO nice to open up the windows in the house and work on spring cleaning. A … [Read more...]

Why does it feel like the time is just flying by every day? I constantly feel like I'm a step behind everyone else, and I'm always trying to catch up--but the time goes by so fast! Just when I feel like I can take a quick breather, I have "just one more thing" to get done. It's actually been nice to be so busy, because it helps with my depression; but on the other hand, I am not used to being so fast-paced. Speaking of … [Read more...]

A Thursday weigh-in and a new job

Image IMG_4036.JPG

This month, I have developed a whole new respect for working mothers. Jerry's been working day shift, so he's gone when the kids and I wake up in the morning and he doesn't get home until evening. On a normal day, I pick up the kids from school, come home and help them get their homework done, cook dinner, and we eat at around 4:00.With all the appointments we've had lately, we just haven't had any "normal" days … [Read more...]

So, the most ironic thing happened yesterday. I was finally going to start doing Wednesday Weigh-ins again, like I mentioned on a previous post.

Week 9 Weigh-in

Image IMG_9153.JPG

I just have time for a quick weigh-in/recap of the week. As I mentioned yesterday, I saw a very nice surprise on the scale:Hello 130's!!

That surprised me, considering I just lost one pound last week; I really thought it was going to slow down, now that I'm so … [Read more...]
