I Will Own TODAY!

Thursday, December 11, 2014

its amazing sometimes what we put our bodies through knowing what the outcome will be. knowing that heart burn is already a problem and that i continue to choose the foods that are big instigators....it's crazy right?!

i've struggled a lot during this pregnancy and now that i'm nearing the end it's so nice to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. i know that with delivery comes a whole nother slue of things i'll have to deal with but i can really feel that inner healthy sherry screaming to come out too.

last night i was so miserable with heartburn (just about downed a whole container of almond milk) that i woke up this morning determined to get put a plan in motion to have a healthy day. can i guarantee it will last and carry into tomorrow...no. but i do have today and i'm ganna own it!!

planned my meals out for the entire day!
walking schedule planned for some exercise!
keeping my mind focused for a happy/positive filled day!

    Shortterm vs. longterm, it's always a struggle. With food, exercise, procrastination. Everything!

    You go girl! I don't understand the choices I make sometimes either. I was pissed off yesterday after trying on some clothing at a store. I thought I'd be down a size and wasn't, so my response was to snack all evening in frustration. This makes no sense. I want to be a smaller size so I eat more? I am an emotional eater. Still working on it. I am and always will be a work in progress. But as a good friend reminded me, I am in a much healthier place than I used to be. Sorry this is such a long comment! Ha! Hope you have an awesome day my friend! emoticon

No Drive...None At All :(

Friday, December 05, 2014

i feel like this has been the lowest i've felt on my journey since i started a couple years ago. even as i sit here i don't even know how to explain where my head is. i hate when people give excuses but that seems to be all i do now. i'm in my last month of pregnancy and it honestly wears me out to just go to the grocery store. i'm totally pooped out and their for my mind has shut down as well....no drive...none at all! :(
i can't say i dont care but i can say i don't care enough...make sense?

i've made december goals and yet i don't seem to even be trying. i guess i just wanted to jump on here and share my thoughts and to offer my apologies to all my spark friends that i promise to be there to cheer on. it's hard to be the one struggling so i'm sorry sparkers.

i'm hoping that this will all change in a few weeks and i can find the determined gal hiding inside me. hoping ya'll don't give up on me.

    Sounds to me like little Izzy is making her preparations to come into the world...she's making sure you are taking things easy so when it's her big moment, you'll be up to the task! This time next month you'll be holding your sweet, precious little girl and glad you suffered through these last agonizing days taking it slow.

You are our little fire cracker! You'll get your spark back. But until then, what is...is.

    You are simply slowing down before the big "birth"day arrival!!! Don't worry your head at all about motivation & caring.... of course you do! You are just easing up at the moment, drawing in strength.

  dont beat yourself up. I honestly think you have done great being pregnant and still trying to keep with make better choices and being active. This is the last month of pregnanct so really just relax and get ready for the baby. After the baby is here you'll be able to get a new routine going and get back to business. Dont apologize. =) Hugs!!!

    Don't apologize. I think you are being too hard on yourself. One day at a time. One success each day. Focus on small steps each day and they will become more habit like drinking water and eating veggies with each meal. Try that....

    emoticon Sweetie REST! Chill! RELAX...you are not a failure at all. I'm sure you are pooped out and that's expected. For you to be as active as you've been is good for you and the health of that baby. To me my friend. You have done a wonderful job. Fix up the nursery, paint some walls and fix it up with the crib, rocking chair, and whatever else you need and rest. prepare for the birth of this blessing. Right now you need to rest for the job you have ahead. Pushing that healthy baby into this world. emoticon

    No apologies needed to anyone. We all fall down. Pick yourself back up, dust yourself & put up your fists and say "Just bring it!"

    Sending you lots of gentle hugs and good wishes for the added strength you need right now as you go through this important phase of your pregnancy. It's little wonder you're feeling a little depleted right now; only natural. There are no suggestions or words I can offer to help other than the absolute assurance that you're going to move right through this rough patch and into a happier, more energetic, and joy-filled time in your life. emoticon

    I have never been pregnant and can't really offer any advice... But I think you need to give yourself a break. You are about to have a baby. You are carrying another person inside you and that person is affecting everything. Maybe she wants you to conserve your energy. Lol I don't know, just a guess. I'm sorry, I know you are frustrated. There is a new gal that just joined the diamond team for the winter biggest loser challenge who just gave birth 3 weeks ago!!! So maybe you can chat with her in a few weeks and are ready to get back on track. emoticon

    Gosh, I am sorry your having a rough patch..but I promise it will pass. I know that last month of pregnancy is rough..(I had 8 children)..but you will get through it..Your body is just shouting ..HELP right now. But once you have had the baby ..and get over all the newness that your body is experiencing..I promise, you will be fine.
Try to get out in the fresh air each day..just to breath that air in..and get some sun if its out that is....Being out side is magical for me..and always renews me.
May you be blessed and that little one you are carrying be healthy and happy.

    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!! =)
