My poor blog........I have put you on the back burner.
Anyway, how are you? I hope you are good! :)
I thought I would let you know that I decided I don't want to be fat anymore. I hate seeing pictures of me looking this way. I also, hate not seeing pictures of me with my boys and husband because I'm ashamed.
I've been a stay at home mom now for four years and boy, you can tell! Mama has back and a whole lot of other not so good stuff. I just let myself go. That is no excuse!
I joined the gym again and they have childcare there. I've been going 5-6 days a week for the last 14 weeks. Woo hoo! I lift weights and do 30 minutes of cardio a day. For my weight lifting, I focus on one body part a day. For example today, I did just shoulders exercises. Last week I started taking some classes. I'm really enjoying them.
My diet has changed big time! No more junk food and no more starving myself. I eat as clean as possible. The good thing I already knew how to cook everything. My husband has been eating this way for years. I also, drink a gallon of water a day. I leave my jug sitting on my kitchen counter so I can see how much I have left.
Another thing I have been working on is SLEEP! I still have to force myself to bed, but I feel so much better not staying up until 2 am.
So, how much have I lost? As of right now 8 pounds. I know that's not much, but I can see inches gone! My clothes are bigger and I no longer have to use a hair bow to keep my pants together! My jeans are really baggy now. It is frustrating to see only this little amount of weight gone, but it's better than nothing and gaining weight.
So, that is what I've been up to. I'm not giving up. I don't care how long it takes me I will be at my first goal's weight.
Big G earned principals honor again for the third nine weeks!
I had to attend parent teacher conference that week.
His teacher says that he still needs help with reading and she thinks he needs to be tested for a reading disability. I'm not against it. I'm just confused. He continues to make all A's and was also tested for the gifted program and yet, he struggles with reading? To me, he has improved 1000% from the beginning of the school year. His teacher says he is the most determined student in her class and that he tries so hard at everything. I appreciate that she notices these things. We will find out in the summer if he made the GT program. If not, he will be tested again in the fall.
Every since we had Little G over 4 years ago, we kicked Big G out of the nursery and into the dark dungeon. I never decorated this room. I've bought cool stuff over the years and stored it. I don't know why I was so lazy about this.
Dark blue walls still show lots of nastiness.
I don't even want to talk about the carpet.
Little boys are rough!
Here it is right now! I still have a lot to do.
Does this bed look girly. I bought it 2 years ago at an yard sale for $15.00. It's solid wood.
I'm on the look out for pictures now. I'm just glad it doesn't look like the Sanford and Son room anymore. hahaha!
I guess I have a good reason to hit up some antique stores now! ;)
