At the end of the day....

I am exhausted right now. I should work out but I think I need to sleep instead.

I managed to eat clean but not 100% on plan. I will take it. Progress not perfection. Have steered clear of Oreos & I will remain steadfast!!

Think I will sleep for 30 mins & then workout

It Got Better

It's been such a crazy year & a half for us.  I feel like we've been on the down part of the roller coaster and we are finally on the straight & even part heading back to the dock.  I feel like I can breathe again.  

I decided to get a full time job about a month ago.  I went back to what I know...childcare.  I got a job in a good preschool, close to home.  Then, miracle of miracles, Rod got a great job, doing what he used to do only better.  Now we are a two income family.  We don't really need my salary, but I sure do feel good earning it...and saving it!  

The kids are adjusting to me not being home right when they get home.  I'm adjusting to it too.  It's hard for me not to be here, but they are old enough for a little independence now.  I'm hoping it teaches them to be more responsible, maybe I baby them too much.  I know I need to be more organized.  I'm getting there.  I've got a dinner menu planned for the week & all the food to make it!  And I think I'm caught up on laundry so a load a night should keep us in clean clothes without me feeling overwhelmed by the laundry monster!!  Now I just need to get the house cleaned & we'll be good.

Now that things are more settled in my life, it's time to take care of me.  Going back on my eating plan tomorrow.  All my food is made, measured & ready to go.  It's going to interesting how I'm going to fit eating in while at work, but I will manage somehow.  I have a run planned with Olivia and I will lift here at home.  I'm done with being 20lbs over where I want to be.  I want to fit into my clothes again. I'm saying it right here...MINI GOAL ~ lose 10lbs by Oct 26 ~ which is totally doable.  I will be in my goal jeans by my birthday Dec 10!!!!

Wish me luck!
