Last month was very difficult on me. I know not many of you will ever know how difficult, but I am grateful it could've been a lot worse. I've learned a lot, not lost more then two lbs. I'm very disappointed about it. But I've only been off my birth control pills a month. Hoping it would've worked quicker then it has but oh well such is life. Anyway, I'm hoping for better results for October. I know I haven't been very helpful to anyone and for that I am sorry. Someday I don't have time to even blink let alone sit and be online. Many days keep running into the next ones making life difficult. My goals for this month seem so meaningless because I can't predict the future by any means. I'm hoping to accomplish looking a little bit more, not going to specify any numbers and setting myself up with failure. I'm hoping to sleep more then two full nights, hoping to get through one month without sickness which is impossible, and I'm also going to take a step and try a different church. My spiritual life needs just as much work as the rest of me. I've neglected it so terribly and needed it so desperately it's not even funny. I'm going to try and feel less alone, fill my voids with my kids and spend more time with them then on myself. I don't feel these are unreasonable goals. U may never get there and I might...only time will tell. Wishing you all luck for the coming month!!

ugh what a week!

Saturday, September 20, 2014

This week has been rough. It started out with the best of intentions but ended up being miserable with three sick kiddos. Two with strep and one with an ear infection. A lot of sleepless nights this week. Which isn't anything different I guess. On top of it all, my lab/ boxer mix pulied a tendons the other morning jumping up the back steps. She's slowly getting better, my little monster Snowflake hasn't made life any easier. She's been bouncing all over my lab Roxy. Trying to get her to play and she just lays there looking at her saying, "you've got to be kidding." So my life's been interesting to say the least this week. Hope everyone's week has gone better then mine!!

in a rut

Monday, September 15, 2014

My life has gotten into quite the rut lately. The man I work for doesn't have a stove at this time, so I am forced to use the microwave or take him to the diner. What am I to do? I try to order healthy at the diner by just getting a cup of soup usually along with a cup of tea. But there's just so much soup someone can eat. I always come away from there feeling weighted down. Its getting old really and until they get the stove fixed I'm doomed to go on this way. Any ideas? As a result of it I'm gaining weight instead of loosing it like I want to. I was considering taking something like hydroxycut dummies to help me loose weight. Any advise or ideas? Thanks and hope you all have a great day!!

    Most foods can be made in the micro, even if it is just re-heated. I bring smoothies to work every other day but the other days, I bring chicken, veggies and either pearled barley or brown rice, Throw together and pop in micro

what's with hormones anyway?

Saturday, August 30, 2014

I went to my ob this past week. I have been on sprintec for a year now and have gained more weight then I wanted to but still lost the baby weight. My top weight was 226 when I gave birth to my youngest. I dropped to 183, then over the summer last year, I dropped to 175. Now after the winter, I'm back up to 185. I don't like what's happened, I am experimenting with getting off the pills for three months to see how I will do without them. I'm hoping I can drop my weight again and be able to stay off the pills completely. I'm going to be cleaning for an elderly man for a while hoping to be moving more then I have been the last two years working for my mom. Next thing I'd like to do is to work on bringing my bp down. Its been too high another side effect of my pills. If anybody has any ideas for different foods to eat or what exercise to do I'd appreciate it. Thanks and have a good weekend!

    I like to go with high fiber and low calories. Soups with lots of veggies too

    Medication can cause side effects that make weight loss harder. I don't know what sprintec is but maybe there is something else you could take instead? Best wishes! I understand how discouraging it is - I keep getting put on anti-inflammatories - horrible for water retention and weight gain.

I had to get a physical for work today. They sent me to planned parenthood for it because that's where they said they'd pay for it. I had all I could do to stay there. I wanted to run so badly it wasn't even funny. I don't believe in abortions at all, never thought I'd ever be in a place that takes human life before it starts. I love my three boys with all my heart, I never would replace all the morning sickness, pain of labor, or anything since then for reasons that were beyond my control. Yes I do understand in times of certain situations but still it's a human life! How can anyone just do that? Especially to something they've created? I know there are some people who disagree with me, but weare entitled to our own opinions. I so desperately wanted to ask the doctor who saw me how she slept at night and even existed at all? As I sat waiting in the examining room I looked around at the things them had in there. One was a simple little rubbermaid square box with a lid on top but at the time it was underneath it, it had a papertowel in it, my guess was that was for an unborn baby. I had to keep myself contained from screaming out why? And crying in hysteria over it. Looking back on my tree labors, realizing my choice was right to bring my kids into the world and not destroy them. I may complain about them but I love them and wouldn't change anything. I guess it was an overwhelming sense of grief for the babies that had been taken that washed over me. I couldn't help it, I don't know everyone's circumstances and what goes through their heads, its definitely not a place I'd like to go back to. No ones gonna tell me any different either.
