I have been taking this weight loss journey one day at at time...that's all I can handle. When I start to think about how far I have to go, I get completely overwhelmed. It seems so slow going, and I've been so tired. I think I am going to make an appointment to see my doctor just to check my blood pressure and see if there is anything else I can do to feel a little better. I have been so grumpy. I want my coffee. I want ice cream. I want sweet and sour chicken and crab rangoon...ugh. I have been recording every single bite of food or drink that goes into my mouth on Sparkpeople.com. I have exercised 15 out of the last 17 days, for at least 30 minutes, plus did all of the cooking, cleaning, diapering, waking up at night with babies, and a 2 day garage sale...seems like I should have burned a zillion calories. When I weighed in on Thursday, I had only lost 2 more pounds...and every day since then the scale says I have gained those two pounds back. I am discouraged tonight. Maybe I will feel better in the morning...I really hope so.
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will grab a cup of coffee or a glass of iced tea and stay a while! I started this little blog in 2005 and am amazed sometimes to look back and see God's hand, his blessings and his mercy in the course of these last 11 years! He has truly blessed our family beyond measure! My husband Kris and I have been married for 18 years and we have three amazing kiddos, Katie, Asher, and Claire! I enjoy homemaking, crafting, trying new recipes, and mostly just being a "mama" all while on a super tight budget! Please feel free to browse through our archives! I hope you'll leave with a new idea or just a bit of joy! Thanks again for visiting!
