have i had to re-evaluate my goals? lol. you could say thatQOTD Thursday, March 24--Do you have a goal for the last 8 weeks of the challenge? Have you had to re-evalutate your goals since the challenge started? If you are struggling, can you list some of your successes so far?
but you know, i guess not really. my first goal really was to be 135 by the time i went to hawaii in may. on saturday i was 135 (also what i weighed at my wedding). so i'm happy about that. and you know, the goals ultimately really remain the same - eat healthy and exercise. sure, i may not see 130 anytime soon but i will still need to work to maintain and supposedly you're only really supposed to gain 3 lbs in the first trimester. with thomas i think i gained a ton in the beginning b/c i went CRAZY with food.
yes, that really sounds like a big stressor and totally a reason that i'd wind up eating alot. i hope all the tests work out to your and your guy's benefit. will be thinking of you.I have been struggling this challenge. Far too many stresses in my life have not only thrown off my eating and exercise or lack there of, but also my housework. I am trying to gain control of things again and I know that finding a good job will go a long way.
Speaking of stress. After speaking with our pediatrician today she suggested or rather insisted that I talk to Hunter's neurologist about some personality and grade changes that we've noticed. They have now scheduled an MRI for April 13. Hopefully his changes are not tumor related, but we need to be sure. We will also be completing ADHD evaluations as well as asking his teachers to do the same. I guess ignoring things wasn't the best strategy, but it was keeping me sane.
sounds like some pretty awesome successes to me! way to go!My successes:
I went 63 days with no soda
I've dropped a pant size
I have more energy
I'm working out 4 to 5 days a week
i've never eaten at captain jack's or tony's - you'll have to give us a dining report!!! in january we had an early dinner at liberty tree tavern. there were 8 of us including my toddler, an 11 year old, 9, and 7 year old. it was the quietest meal i've even experienced because we all were too busy stuffing our faces. enjoy!!!Dining ressies for our trip (yes I made some even though we won't be there long)

another nasty day here in the bronx. i'm about to make thomas his breakfast and get ready to go teach our mommy and me class. this is the HARD class because there are SO many kids in the class and not as many parents: a set of triplets, a set of twins with a younger one barely a year younger, another set of twins, and two other sibling sets. it's CRAZY! cute, but crazy
i have to go food shopping today which i really hate doing. we have nothing in the house though which is never good when trying to eat healthy because the chinese delivery is just so much easier then!
have a great day everyone!!
