Check In!

I knew it had been a while since my lost blog but I had no idea until today that it had been over a month. Where did the last 30 days go? I have been so busy with work and the little time I have in the evenings with the kids that I haven’t had the time to focus on me. Story of a mother’s life though half of the time, Right?

Let me rewind and give a rundown of the last month if you don’t mind.

1- I haven’t gotten to work out very much at all. Partially because I have been so busy and then just because at the end of the day I didn’t have the motivation when I looked at the clock and realized it was already approaching 10 or 10:30.

2- It will be April 15th before we know it and I work for a CPA. (Nuff said)

3-I have maintained my calories daily and continued to watch what I eat. I did a few times that I ate what I wanted and then on a few occasions wished I would have just said no.

4-For my 1 month weigh in on 2-18-11, I had lost 14lbs. This is what AWESOME!

5-My husband has actually on several occasions offered to cook me one of my healthy meals and ate them with me. Granted he ate 3 servings of bread but he is making an effort to join my bandwagon.

6-I was able to make a full menu for us on the 3 different weeks. Unfortunately, I haven’t been so good at this the last 2 weeks. But, it’s time to buy groceries again and I am going to work on it again.

7-I got a new pair of shoes, a workout mat and a new JM video for Valentine’s Day. And yes, I actually wanted these things.

Take the time for YOU; I know that giving up just the little amount of time that I was allowing myself daily has made the last month a lot harder on me.

"Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always." 1 Chronicles 16:11
