Don't Quit

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.

    How was the new church? hope you had a good morning.

    We were all packed p to go on a day trip to Penn's Cave, started out- got about 5 minutes from my house & the check engine light came on along with a red flashing lightning bolt light. Turned around and came back. DH thinks it's the throttle body- we were able to get an appt at firestone tomorrow morning. Brian has to drop it off on his way to work. Hopefully they can get it fixed tomorrow. fingers crossed I hate being without my car. They also have to put 2 front tires on and it's due for inspection at the end of the month so we'll just have them do it tomorrow. So here goes another huge charge on the credit card. ugh.... just happy and thankful it happened right by my house and not an hour or two away on the highway....

    this summer has been nothing but one big huge money drain- lots of bills charged up. Between my surgery, the one i'm getting done again soon and not being able to do ebay at all this summer....I don't want summer to end but i am ready for a normal schedule soon and some normalcy in routine.
    Oh, yeah...I pulled my back out the other day today. By Monday night I liteally could not walk. Had to go to dr on Tuesday morning for it. She said everything in my lower back was pulled. She wanted to give me an injection but the medicine is counter-indicated for aspirin allergy so instead I'm on 9 days of high dose prednisone and muscle relaxers and motrin.
    Not supposed to lift anything or do much of anything...yeah, right? how wold that work?
    Mom's have lots and lots of stuff that needs to get done on a daily basis, right?
    Anyways.... we ended up packing up dh's work truck and went fishing at a pond instead and had a picnic there for lunch. It was a nice afternoon.
    Off to start dinner. Talk to you soon! :) xxxx

    we're okay; today was last day of school- out at 10:30 am. Super hot here again today- 3rd day in a row in the 90's. we're supposed to get thunder storms later today.
    I get my stitches out of my foot tomorrow morning. can.not.wait! i don't know if i still have to use this clunky surgical boot/shoe or not. It's getting better every day. I still swell quite a bit and use motrin a few times a day. i'm getting around more allbeit very slowly. I hate not being to do what i want when i want and i am soooooo bored having to sit around so much. i think i'm going to try to wait about a month before i get the right foot done.
    how are you guys doing today?
    how's summer going so far?
