I love Friday's...I love Monday's more but Friday is a pretty close second.

Down 4 pounds...can't believe it. Hubby lost 4 as well. Makes for a nice week.

Now it's time to battle the dreaded weekend. I love weekends except evenings when we like to relax and chill and watch a movie. It always ends up in a munch fest.

I did buy some smart snacks...popcorn clusters with cranberries and 100 calorie bags:) Hopefully that will work. I also picked up some flavored water...I've been trying to cut down on my diet Pepsi intake. Only 8 Oz's a day...

Next it's going to be cutting my coffee intake. Even the thought of it gives me the jitters. Pushing that to the back of my head...

I think were actually watching I totally love end of the world movies. Don't ask me why...can't figure it out so I just go with it. My absolute favorite is 'Day After Tomorrow'. I have probably seen it 50 times...maybe more...our secret. ;)

So everyone have a great weekend if I don't check in...see u Monday:)

Make it a good one...

A new day...

Yesterday was horrible...sick all day. I woke this morning feeling alright though, that was until I walked into the kitchen...OMG!!! It was a total disaster. Yesterday was a BAD day to be sick. My oldest DD had a music concert(which I missed), my DS had Scouts. So we had to arrange for someone to pick him up and drop him off...which my hubby accomplished. My Hubby also had a concert to go to which he was late for...but never complained.

So my youngest DD had preschool and the other kids only have half days on Thursday' we all came home ate lunch and cleaned. It didn't take long but I did fit a loooong lecture into the scenario...a well deserved one.

No one even fed the poor dog. She always gets a cup of soft food when we eat supper or she won't eat her hard food. Bizarre dog but she is sweet and smart.

All I can say is thank heaven for my wonderful hubby...or my kids would have been eating leftovers...which they were O.K. with. Just not hubby...but they got supper and everyone got where they needed to be....and now my house is clean again, and I'm holding food down again.

It always ends on a good note. Well 50% of time

Make it a good one :)

Well this week sure has gone fast. It's crazy and I can't seem to catch up. I've always been a little behind but now I'm so far behind I can't even see where I should be. I always have a list running through my mind and I keep adding things to it without finishing anything off. Well no wonder I always feel like I should be doing something. At least that explains the anxiety thing I feel sometimes.

Now it's soccer season...trying to keep up with 2 kids in soccer plus Scouts , Girl Guides and 2 camps a birthday party and a sleepover....uuuuuhhhhgggggg

I try and get everything on the calendar because if I didn't....OH BOY. I still missed my daughters tech camp for soccer. I felt so awful...I swear I cried for an hour.

I know why I'm finding it hard to lose weight....I have no time for me. I might...if I'm lucky get in 30 minutes of exercise a couple times a week. I'm always scarfing down my meals. I have no time to plan or prepare. I always have to make up menus to stay within budget...and even that has been really hard lately.

So this weekend was my DS Confirmation. I was going to wear my checkered dress...the one I wore when I was pregnant with my now 4 year old DD. Well I went and tried on my dress the day I tried to try on my dress. What a laugh!!! So break down ensued...back to the closet. Searching for my dress pants that I wore at X-mas. Well at least I could do them up, but sitting in church for an hour in them...not going to happen. So had to resort to my black yoga pants, which look like dress pants as long as the top is covered up. Grabbed the biggest shirt I could find but it was a little tight so I left it unbuttoned and put a t-shirt under it. So that had to be the suckiest moment I've had in a long time.

And yet all I crave and want is a bloody bag of chips and yes I have caved a couple times. Some days are just hard to get through without losing it!!!

I'm trying to figure out where all my will power went...I don't even know what to eat anymore. I feel like I'm bouncing between eating plans. Some days I just don't care.

I need to make up a menu but who has the time. This right now is my free time lately. there is always something. I need a break...I really need a break.
