Happy New Year!

Well, it been four months since I last blogged.

I thought for sure a yr of blogging about dieting and exercising was enough.

Then I learned my life didn’t stop, just my writing. Writing that seemed to help me if no one else.

I reached my weight goal and I thought everything would be easy from there.

That was my first mistake. I’m so happy 2017 is behind me. It was a very hard year. It was so rough that I am having a hard time to remember the good things that happened.

I know there was many blessings but my eyes are blinded by the bad. So much sickness, loss of loved ones, and everything seemed to keep falling apart causing more financial strain.

This lead me to gain ten pounds. Actually, too much eating caused the ten pounds. However, stress leads me to make bad eating choices.

I am not going to be doing a diet/exercise blog this year. I’m going to just blog when I feel like it. I also just want to blog because it helps me see things a little more clearer. I do know that I want to blog about happy things because I don’t want this year to end with me thinking I’m so glad it’s over. I want to end it thinking I hope next year is great too.

So, here’s to the best year ever! May God Bless Us Everyone!

Day 130 ┬áMy Struggle…….

Happy Sunday everyone!

It has been another cold day for me. I stayed in the house all day trying stay warm. Every time someone came in or went out of the house I got cold. I’m cold now sitting here blogging.

So my college girl had to leave today. So I made a nice breakfast before she left. I only ate a small portion of scrambled eggs which I made with my unsweetened almond milk. I really wanted biscuits and gravy but I managed to control my cravings.

After she left I did my workout video. I got in my steps by walking in place and 60 active minutes while watching a movie with my family minus one.

For dinner the family had hamburgers. I made homemade hummus and made myself a wrap. 

I am ready for this challenge to start tomorrow. I took my before picture and measurements and weighed in. Talk about a eye opener. If this doesn’t get me doing better nothing will. I have 24 pounds to lose by September 1rst. So I need all the encouragement I can get.

The kids get another snow day tomorrow but I have to go to work. I dread going out in the cold. Thankfully, it’s supposed to warm up by the middle of the week.

Have a great night!

Thanks so much for reading and God Bless!
