Well I tracked all of my points yesterday! I went WAY over my daily allowed points and dipped into my weekly flex points. But at least I tracked ALL of the points I ate. I couldn't have done it with out my husbands encouragement to do so. Now I know that frozen pizza is loaded with points! Well here is to another day of tracking!!!

smart one meals...

Tracking, tracking and more tracking! I must track my points today. I have started by tracking my breakfast points already and I know exactly what I am going to have for lunch. I decided to buy a Smart Ones meal again. It has been a while since I have had one because I kind of got burnt out on them and switched to Healthy Choice, well then when I was pregnant I had a change of heart (or should I say stomach) and couldn't eat those anymore. So we will see what happens at lunch today if I like it or if I even get filled up by it!

gain, but that's ok...

So this week has been pretty hard. Ian got another tooth in which made for a lot of restless nights and days with out naps. So when I went to weigh in this week I really thought I probably gained back all the weight I had lost last week (all 1.6), but I only gained 8/10 of a pound!!! I have to admit that I was actually pretty happy with those results. I think that I get more activity in then I think I do. Especially when I go out and about with Ian. My goal is to really start tracking this week. Please pray for me as I work on this goal.

Well I lost 1.6 pounds this week! I was happy about that but at the same time I still have a few more pounds to loose to get back to my highest. My goal this week is to get in 3 of my 5 servings of fruits or vegetables each day. This was the goal our leader gave us for the week. So far today I have had one serving of blueberries! So I am well on my way. I can have a snack later today of fruit and then hopefully tonight someone will bring a veggie dish to the cook out our FLOCK is having.

FYI - My husband is so very much the best husband in the world! He got me flowers this week that had a note on them that said you are a great wife and I love you! How sweet is he? He even went to the front door and rang the door bell but I was back in our bathroom and didn't hear him :( I would have loved to see him through the peep hole holding those beautiful roses! You can see pictures of them on my other blog 9 months and beyond

Just writting my thoughts...

I'm realizing that being a stay at home mom is tough. Not because you have to be there 24/7 for the kiddos, not because you have to keep the house up and feel bad when you don't. I don't even know how to put it into words what I am trying to say. All I know is I love staying at home with Ian and I love being a wife but sometimes I miss being a working person. I think it is because I miss the relationships I had outside the home. I mean I feel like my life stopped but my work friends lifes go on together. I feel the same way about my old FLOCK (AKA Sunday School). I miss seeing them and being a part of there life. I miss being able to share in there prayer requests and there praises. Don't get me wrong I like our new FLOCK, I am just having a hard time being my self. This usually happens, it takes me a long time to be myself. I am not sure the answer to fixing this problem, but I just wanted to write about it. Sometimes I feel as though if I write things out I feel better.

ugh, big time ugh!

So I have already screwed up this week. About an hour after going on a walk on Monday I gave in to eating out of boredom. And pretty much the rest of the week has sucked. Ugh. Why can't I get back in to the grove of things? I am getting so sick of gaining and not caring. HELP!
