Welcome 2008!

Just wishing everyone a happy and safe New Year's Eve celebration tonight! I'm stuck at home but hubby and I will be celebrating by ourselves, lol!

A little quick update. I am feeling better cold wise. Still have a cough but my breathing is better so I'm getting back to it. Just because 2007 is over does not mean I am ready to give up!! I'm going to still keep fighting!

Come back for my updates soon (this week, maybe even tomorrow?)

You have GOT to be kidding me!!!!

So...guess what? I am sick AGAIN! I am so angry right now! I have been sick pretty much since the first of September. It's now the end of December? I've been on two anti-biotics and would start feeling better for a few weeks and then BAM! right back to being sick again! My kids have had stuffy runny noses and coughs and my husband had it real bad last week. He is feeling better now but he was soo nice enough to give it back to me! UGH! It's things like this that make me want to give up on the whole idea of trying to lose weight. I can't workout when I'm sick like this! Most of it is in my chest and head. I have to breathe through my mouth just sitting here at the desk, I would probably pass out if I tried to work out! I'm not normally like this. I usually get sick once or twice an entire year and that's it. Once it is gone, it stays gone for a long time. When my husband went to the doctor he suggested getting some Lysol spray and spraying down the house to get rid of the germs. We have done that and gotten a humidifier to help with the dry air, but they haven't helped at all. I'm at a loss. I can't lose weight if I can't work out. Well, I could I suppose but it would be very slow and pretty much futile. The only good thing about being sick is that my nose is so congested that I can't taste anything. If I can't taste it then I don't want to bother with eating. I guess that is the ONLY good thing about it! I am just sick of being SICK!

When will things be normal?

Ok so i started to think that things were going to get back into a somewhat normal routine. I guess I should stop thinking so much, right? Our van decided to crap out on us over the weekend. The alternator went out. My husband had to miss two days of work and the last two days we have been running around here and there trying to get it taken care of. It's finally fixed, thankfully. That was just what we wanted for xmas..our van to take a poop a week before the holiday! But that is always how our luck seems to go!

Anyway, so we have finally started getting back into eating healthier and today was the first day I decided to try working out again. was like starting all over. I couldn't do too much. I'm not as flexible as I was and don't have the stamina that I used to. Ugh, I'm so angry at myself for losing the strength that I had before! I know I will build it back up eventually but it just makes me mad that I let myself do this to myself! I do have some motivation to keep eating healthier. For awhile I was having really bad indigestion. The kind that hurts in your chest and it was beginning to be really painful! Eating lots of junk food is not worth that pain and agony of indigestion like that! Every time I think about eating something "bad" I just think about that pain and it makes the food not even look good anymore!

I'm not sure how well my husband is going to do with this. He loves to eat. He has never really had to worry about it because he got an 8 hour work out at work every day so he could eat whatever he wanted. Now that he has gotten laid off for the winter he is still eating what he wants but can see the pounds creeping on. It's time that we both take control of it. I'm going to try and cheer him on as much as I can so that we can both be healthier! It will be harder for him though because he does not like very many vegetables and that is something he will need to eat. I will have to come up with some creative ideas for him, i guess!

My twins are about to start preschool with our oldest son so a few days out of the week we will have the afternoons to ourselves so maybe we can use some of that time to get out and go do something like take a walk. Any exercise is good exercise!

She's baacckkkk!

Wow, it's been so long since ive posted here. I have totally been neglecting my blogs here but not on purpose. Not because I'm bored with it or dont want to do it anymore. I just havent had time! Let's see..since I last posted in here, my husband had surgery. Everything went fine and he got back to work. That week he started back to work I began to work out again and watched what I ate. At the end of that week his whole crew got laid off for the winter. We knew it was coming but didnt think it would be that early. I started getting sick again...and sicker. I finally went to the doctor again since I have been sick since the beginning of September! He put me on another anti-biotic. I am feeling a little better now, just still have a cough. I'm so sick of being sick! All of this being sick crap has gotten me way off of my routine and I have gained back some TEN! I'm soooo mad at myself! Even though I wasnt able to work out I should have still watched what I ate. Anyway, so my husband has gotten another job for the winter but he works 2nd shift which I'm not used to. Now that Im starting to feel better I have to re-arrange my workout schedule and fit it in while he is at work. I need to start again now before I end up gaining everything back again! It's almost like I can feel the extra weight. My stomach feels bigger and i feel bloated all the time. I hate that feeling. I felt a lot better when I was in control of eating and working out. I'm going to try and start posting here more frequently because I do feel like it was a big help coming here and venting or voicing my good news!
