Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the fund are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
and many failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up thought the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
it may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
In all aspects of life we are endlessly training ~ by Me. ^_~
I hope to run the Disney's Princess 1/2thon by the time I am 40 or at least a few weeks after since my bday is just before the marathon. Well, I am 41 and nowhere near a1/2thon. Still dreaming!
I do struggle with food, motivation, and life. I have learned to go with the life and just do MY BEST.
Since my journey started I have inspired my mom, sister, teachers at my kids school, my neighbor across the way, and parents at the bus stop. mI love going to school functions and running into a mom I have not seen in a awhile and hear them say....."if you can do it so can I!"
My main reasons for trying to be healthy is for my kids. Also, I do not want to be my mom's age and have health issues due to my weight.
I am always training for life as a mom, wife, Catholic, runner, daughter, sister....I am not perfect and I will NOT try to be.
I am determined to be a healthy and happy person.
I am Becky and I am a SAHM mom to three kids. I have dd1 Brittney 12yrs, ds Xander 10ys, and dd2 Bailie 8y in August. My dh, PACMANLIVES, is a geek and a very good geek.
I am a closest eatter and I love food when stressed out.
Coffee is my life line just ask my family. I can drink it any time and where just as long as it is good. Mocha, Lattes, Cappicinos, Frappes, Decaf. from the pot, ....just name your poison.

I have a secret!! I want to live on a farm. I want a house like Clark Kent on Smallvill, maybe not that large. I want a barn, cows, and grow things.
One more secret only a few people in my life know. I still dream of being a ballet dancer. I want to dance en pointe and just look and feel amazing.

Sounds like you have a great weekend planned :) We have Monday off, too for MLK day...Brian has work though. I did pretty good this 1st week- except too heavy on the carbs a few days and today was just horrible- I ate waaay too much and waaay too many carbs. I will do better tomorrow. Got the Christmas tree down and out today- I think I swept and vacuumed up about 10 pounds of needles...lol Looking forward to getting back to a normal schedule and a routine. I think we're doing Disney again for Thanksgiving of this year- 2017. So excited to go back!! Brian's dad might come with us - for his very first visit to Disney at around 73 years old! :) Only problem is he will not fly- he lives in CT and it's such a far drive- without stops prob close to 18 hours. I could not be in a car that long- ever.....hoping to change his mind about flying. He could take the train in but that's even longer- prob 26 hours.
I think we're doing the beach this summer for a few nights- prob Cape May :)
Looking forward to spring and warmer weather already....but NEED to lose alot of weight before then.
Hope you have a good night!
