I am feeling very good this morning, my son is feeling better and we all got some sleep last night. I am going to spend some time cleaning up the house over the next couple of days and making sure I get in my exercise while eating right. I might even go rollerblading if the weather agress tomorrow or the next day! Happy Good Friday everyone, enjoy some family time and be active together!

So, last night, I stayed up late to make Easter treats and bookmarks for the kids to hand out to their classes today, and then watched Lost with my hubby when he got home. 12:30, I laid down to go to sleep, at 1:00, we were awoken by our youngest son vomiting all over the hall floor and into the bathroom. He has continued to vomit every 20 to 30 minutes since then. He isn't even keeping water down. He does not have a fever, but needless to say, he is very disappointed that he can't be at school today to hand out his Easter goodies and take his spelling dictation(seriously!). He even suggested that he took take his bucket to school so he wouldn't miss anything! Also, I spent the remainder of the night in his bed with him so I could monitor him and be there for him. Neither one of us got much sleep. I am hoping he feels better soon.!

So, I weighed in this morning at 170 again, and I am determined to make it the last time I see that seven in the middle. I know, I have said it before, but this is the third time, and the third time is the charm right? Well, I have planned a get together, just casual, for family and friends at our house on the weekend for Easter. Typically, I buy our family new outfits to celebrate Easter, but this year I hadn't planned on it. I changed my mind last night, so I am planning a trip to one of my favourite places to shop-Value Village. This store sells second hand clothes, and it has been a great way for me to save money and I have some very nice clothing that I have purchased there. I am thinking about buying a nice Spring dress (nothing flowery or fruity, lol) or a skirt and top set. I was out with my kids last night and a number of people commented that I am looking fantastic! It felt good, and I want to celebrate with a new outfit, while staying in my budget. I'll post some pics of my new outfit later.

I sat down last night and read some SP articles to try and get my head back in the game. One Step Back and Two Steps Forward really helped. I thought about what I was doing right when the pounds were coming off, and remembered that I was planning my next days food the night before. So, last night I did that. So far so good today! I also had a wonderful walk with my buddy and another friend this morning, lots of giggles. I have moved into Stage 4 of the Sparkdiet, which suggests using the goal setting techniques I have learned to achieve another kind of goal. I have decided to use that suggestion for my plan to clean up and organize my home. So, one of my mini goals is to spend time in the evening making a plan for how I will achieve my goal the next day. I have a list of things to accomplish today, and I think with this plan it will keep me from doing boredom snacking.

Still struggling here, back above 170 again, like I didn't ever want to do. I can't seem to get my head back in "the game". I have been feeling ill, spent the whole day in bed on Friday. I also had a big talk with my hubby over the weekend, I am really struggling with figuring out where I "fit" right now. Maybe it's a mid life crisis or an identity crisis, but I HATE it! I fit right where I am, and I am right where I choose to be. I have two fantastic, healthy kids, a husband who works very hard to keep our family fed, clothed, housed, etc and he loves me dearly. I have terrific friends, I am healthy, get to be a SAHM and should be eternally grateful for the blessings in my life. Somehow though, I still feel kinda empty inside, and wonder if I will ever feel whole. I need to stop feeling so down on myself and just enjoy every moment. Thanks for reading my whining! I am done now, ready to buck up and move forward.
