    Great pictures. I really enjoy watching your videos because I love your "accent". If we were talking together, I'm sure you 'd say I was the once with the accent. haha

Sorry to hear you're having heartburn. With all that room being taken up, it's hard to keep that stuff down. All your parts are pretty squished right now. As far as your health goals, all you can do is all you can do. Weight loss is a no no so it's mostly just watching what you eat.

There'll be plenty of time for that!!

    It's so good to get an update on you, even though it hasn't been so easy for you right now. I hope that you keep finding relief like you have with the almond milk. When you said that you'll be getting back on track and all after Isabel is born and that made me think that in a way you and I are alike, because I'll be getting back on track too with exercise and eating once I get this total knee replacement coming up on Dec. 15th now. It's been tough with all the pain and then turning to comfort food, but you and I can look forward to what we get in return afterwards! I know that your present is a little different then my new painless knee, but we've had our babies and since I'm in my 50's, these things happen when we're older. So we have to take care of ourselves in all ways! Good days to you, Sheri, and I'll be thinking of you with lots of love and emoticon

    Hey girlfriend, thanks for the update! You are so adorable and so is your little girl! Thanks for sharing the pics! And the chart... Weird about the water being acidic - purified water and carbonated water.... and popcorn oh my! I never knew that! When I have sparkling water it always seems to calm down my stomach. But what do I know?

I am sending you positive vibes for a safe and easy delivery and a healthy mom and baby! emoticon emoticon emoticon

  I remember having horrible heart burn when I was pregnant with my son. I can't remember for sure but it was almost always when I'd lay down and I want to say it was when I'd lay on my right side. He did have a lot of hair lol. You look beautiful! Hang in there you're almost there!! =)

November Gold Star Goal

Monday, November 03, 2014

decided that taking a time out just isn't a good idea. i need to hold myself accountable whether i like it or not. so i've set my goals basic for the month b/c well, lets face it...just doing the basic is what i need to accomplish right now.

in thinking this through last night i just sat and sat with my thoughts until finally the light bulb went off. i'm so use to setting my goals so high and in my pregnancy condition i need to keep it simple. sooooo, i found a fun and creative way to make EACH DAY count all on it's own. there are no failed goals...only sparkly stars for what i did do...what I CAN DO!!

i'm done focusing on what i can't do right now b/c it's just holding me back from what i can do and keeping me down. i'm no longer going to be hard on myself for anything but only attempt to make the most out of every day!

welp..here is the plan....

here is my fun calender to keep track....

my fun stickers to make my white squares sparkle.... ;)


if i can achieve all 5 daily stars i will earn A GOLD STAR for the day! for every five gold stars... i get a non food treat!

ok..i'm ready!!

    I love this blog. So glad you are going to be loving to you and focus on what you CAN DO, not what you can't. I find that achieving small goals and celebrating those make a huge difference:

Getting ALL my waters in which is such a challenge
Eating 3 veggies a day

    Well, I leave you with your thoughts for just moment and then look at what you do!! You set yourself up for success!! Now we're talking. You should give yourself a gold star for coming up with the idea in the first place!! Can't wait to see your squares at the end of the month. Hope you share a pic of it!! That might help you stay on track and accountable too.

it's def been a rough month for me but it's still no excuse! i can't change the past but tomorrow is still in my hands.

good luck in november all!!!

    Perhaps you are setting your goals too high and then losing confidence. Better to start simply and overachieve. I think you are doing amazing by still staying connected to your health and body. You are STILL here and that counts for something huge.

    So I've been a perspective and positivity kick... so here's what I see...

You made up a new rockin' zumba routine.

You logged your food 21 days! :D

You worked out 17/25 days! emoticon

As I am sitting here typing this post I notice that your other awesome friends already put it into perspective for you... I'm just late to the party, but I agree with them! emoticon emoticon

    Succeeded at creating new zumba song routine.
Succeeded in logging 21 out of 31 days
Succeeded in staying under 2000 calories 7 out of 31 days
Succeeded in working out 8 out of 31 days.

Look at the success not the failures. Now set some new November goals. This time, considering your delicate condition, make them reachable yet challenging. You can do it!!

i think it's time i called a time out for myself. put me in the bad girl seat or the corner...whatever... but i def need a time out!

as long as i've been on spark i've def had my moments but this is one that i can't seem to process and get control of. maybe it's the pregnancy, all my crazy up and down all over the place hormones.. who knows..but something's gotta give and my last several approaches just aren't getting the job done.

it's not that i want to give up b/c i dont..i wont. i think it's just on top of everything else in my life this shouldn't be such a consuming topic for me. it shouldn't be this hard....eating healthy and working out is common sense so what the junk?

n e who...with all that said...i have 8 more weeks till little isabelle is due to arrive. i'm going to continue to do what i can on the days i can but i'm going to do it on the down low for awhile. i'll still be around to check in on ya'll and cheer u on but all from my time out chair, lol.

love u all!! keep working hard and kicking butt. it takes a lot to be where so many of you are at and i hope ya'll never lose your mojo ;)

    Oh honey! Now is the time to take care of you and your precious daughter. If you find yourself over indulging, allow yourself to be gentle with yourself both emotionally and physically. This is a HUGE time in your life and you need to give yourself a break for pete's sake. YOu are becoming a MOM, you are 8 weeks pregnant and your life is going to be full of changes. Of course you are tired and stressed and over joyed and happy all at the same time. Thats a lot of emotion so just lean into them and smile and know that everything will be ok if you allow yourself the patience and understanding you need. I made this decision in my last pregnancy as well. It was time to do whatever I wanted/needed to do to make myself feel comfortable and comforted. Two very important words during this time. I am always here to cheer you on!

    I get it, and I totally respect that! I think if I was pregnant, I would be sitting on my couch eating Bon bons and watching rom coms all day. I think you're an amazing woman. Your babies are so very lucky to have such an amazing role model as their mom. Good luck and good health and I look forward to us kickin eachother's butts when you're ready to get back at it. emoticon
