Back to the grind!

Uggghhh, I wish I could be a stay-at-home mom. I was able to spend four days with Dylan, and it sucked leaving him today. Sigh.

So Easter went really well, it was nice spending time with family and Dylan had a blast. He got seven Easter baskets including mine! Lucky kid! I was so busy yesterday that I didn’t have much time to be sad, which is good. I was back to my plan yesterday, exercised, tracked my calories, drank my water. No candy, no cake, no crap. It felt good to be back to my routine, and I woke up today feeling even better. It didn’t feel good when I wasn’t staying on course those couple of days. I love the changes I made, and I need to remember how good I feel when I follow through even if I’m having a tough time emotionally. Thank you for your supportive comments, they really did help!!

I’m considering these next three months to be Phase 2. I am committed to losing 30 pounds by July 8th, and that will make my total loss 70 pounds so far. I don’t think it will be easy, but I think I got this!

Let’s make this a great week, shall we??


  1. I think our lives mimic each other way too much, lol. Although my off-plan eating wasn't because of sadness. I am so sorry dear, I wish I could give you a big hug!
    This week will be much better! :)

  2. I'm just catching up on my blogs and I just want to say I'm sorry you are feeling the pain of missing your mom so much.

    I can relate to eating the wrong things out of sadness. Keep in mind for the next time you are feeling sad that eating the wrong foods just makes you feel worse!! Lesson learned.

    Always remember that your mom IS proud of you. Heck, I'm proud of you and I don't even know ya! Kick ass this week, okay!?!? :)

  3. You can totally do that; just keep doing what you're doing! :)

  4. I hear you on the stay at home mom thing. Good job sticking to the plan on Easter.

    Thirty pounds by July 8? You can do it, I know you can.

  5. It's going to be a GREAT week!
