I have found a peacefulness when I go grocery shopping now. I actually take that time and relish in it. My kids most of the times are either too busy to go with me or have no desire to join me. My husband would love to go with me, but I purposely go without him because he tends to throw things in the cart that we don't need. Although today when I went shopping I was doing great, buying everything that was on just my list and them WHAM!?! There were some chocolate covered cranberries. AAAAHHHH I walked by them about a million times and then sadly I gave in and bought them. I was starving, which I know was my first mistake, I should have never gone shopping without putting food in my stomach. Needless to say I bought them and ate them and loved them, but now I am feeling so bad about the fact that I did it. I know this is part of weightloss, but I feel myself slipping sometimes. I need to just chalk it up to a weak moment and move on. I have some vacations coming up so I am really pushing to lose a good amount of weight by July, this is my first vacay!!! Anyone out there have any good ideas or recipes for the person on the go wanting to eat healthy....Please feel free to share. Tonights Dinner: Going to Round Table pizza for a cancer relay meeting, but I am not much of a pizza person so I will stick to the salad bar tonight:)

Its been so long....

I was sitting on my computer this morning realizing that I had started my journey with many people and then I fell off the face of the earth. I have to be honest and share that I gained all my hardwork weight back and am now starting at the beginning again!! This is an ongoing thing for me, but I know one of these times it will stick. I am now busier than ever, between going to school, work, and my family I know it will be a challenge for me, but I am committed to keep trying. I am definately going to want to share this journey with anyone willing to share. I am ready to jump back in feet first. So to start I am again on weight watchers, but I joined just the online version, since my life is so busy. I have been on it for a month and am happy to report that I have lost 10 lbs. I guess I could say I am off to a good start. One of the things I am doing very different this time is adding exercise. I have starting doing some workouts at the gym. My usual routine at the gym starts with a 30 minute jog on the treadmill finished with some sort of machine workout. I now have a big motivater, my daughter, she is now old enough to go to the gym with me and is very involved on a traveling softball team. So conditioning is great for her and keeps me on my toes. Just wanted to say hello to all and will continue to update daily about my struggles, plateaus, successes and life :)
