Let's try this again

Alright - I'm trying this being motivated thing again. It's so hard!

Here is the food that went into my tummy today (23 points allowed)
  • 3 points oatmeal
  • 2 points coffee (I have one more day of the wonderful stuff - then it's bye-bye until Easter)
  • 4 points chicken burger
  • 0 points lettuce
  • 2 points dressing
  • 1 point banana
  • 1 point popcorn
  • 4 points turkey meatballs
  • 0 points green beans
  • 1 point bread
  • 2 points fruit salad
  • 3 points pretzels

Well I had no energy to work out today. I thought since I'm trying to get back on track here I can take it easy for a bit. Tomorrow I hope I have the same will power. There was even yummy candy in the staff lunch room today, but I didn't touch it. I looked at it longingly and almost gave in. I placed the lid on the container about 4 times. Ahhhhh..... Why does this have to be so hard?

Happy Birthday Delton!

We are less than 2 hours away to having a 4 year old in our house.  He wanted a space theme this year.

Here is his cake.

A dose of Motivation?

Does anyone have a dose of motivation they are willing to sell? I was going so strong and I just want to give up now. I know - "you are doing well, blah, blah, blah". But, I lost my spark and need to find it. It seems like this every winter.

I guess a lot of it is I'm frustrated beyond belief. If you don't want to hear about women problems stop right there and close the window.

I watch what I eat and exercise and I just don't lose a thing. I'm thinking it might be an issue caused by my birth control (IUD). My doctor asked how I liked the form of birth control I was using and I said that I loved it. She said that she was thinking of doing it, but didn't want to because of the side effect of not being able to lose weight or you gain weight. Well that might be the deal then for me. Since I got it last April, I have been stuck and stuck some more. Should I stop the use of it? But it's so easy and I don't even need to think about it. The thing is, I'm not sure we are done having kids, so I don't want to take extreme actions.

Any thoughts?

Creative time

I haven't blogged much these past two months and when I did it was about what I ate (which I need to start doing again).

I actually made Delton's birthday invitations.  Take a look.  This years theme is space!

I have been consumed by facebook.  I haven't posted anything here for ions.  This facebook thing needs to stop.  Like I need one more thing to do on the computer.
