This past week I’ve began a new health ritual on my way to eating better, living better, feeling better for myself. I joined the #mamavation boot camp to be a mamavation mom. Oh yeah if you love me send Leah a message: @bookieboo I vote for @rantsnrascasls to be a #mamavation mom. I’ll love you if you do.
My Goals Achieved This Week!
- So this past week I gave up drinking soda.
- I stopped eating fast food all together.
- I began exercising, yes my ass actually detached from the sofa, which shocked me because I seriously thought there was permanent Velcro attached to it.
- I worked out on my wii fit, which is always fun.
- I went for walks with Harley. Using the dog is always a good thing.
- I also went and signed up for water sports at the our local rec center which won’t start until May, but still it felt good to get the ball rolling.
This past weekend I worked out in the backyard, the kids and FD and I are redoing our yard, building a deck, digging to create flower beds and gravel. By the end of the weekend I discovered body part I never knew existed! My shoulders hurt like a son-of-a-witch-on-wheels!
My arms, back, legs — you name it. Everything was burning with each step. All just from raking gravel and shoveling dirt and it hit me, just how out of shape I truly am.
This week my moods were not really great, especially with the boys. My patience level is down and the kids kept doing things like getting slurpees or eating chocolate they got from someone in front of me, despite me asking them – scratch that. BLOODY begging them to please just don’t eat things to tempt me or give me a hard time, that I need their support on this. But I guess in boy land that means GIRLS are stupid and they just did as they wanted. Even FD forgot and offered me decadent desserts from a friend, chocolate brownies and sugary goodness — forgetting.
I wish I had the support in my household. I wish the males understood what I am feeling, instead of treating what I’m trying to do as something that just isn’t that important. I mean I guess who cares if I die of heart attack, right? As long as they get fed, have their xbox or wii to play on and can hang out with their friends. The boys are just oblivious!
It’s not Dieting it’s a change of Lifestyle
Temptations are something that will happen. I realize that it’s not dieting, it’s a lifestyle change. It’s not to deny myself everything I love. It’s to make better choices for myself because I love myself. So that being said. I did great this past week. I went to a blog event like I mentioned and at the event they had nothing but desserts. I instead opted for the fruit, grapes and sweet strawberries. I stuck to one glass of wine and then water for the evening.
I will admit I probably looked like a dessert junkie because I bent and smelled every dessert on the table. Rich chocolate and pastries to make your mouth water. But I realized that it’s me that has to make the right decisions for myself, nobody else.
Here is to great achievements made and more goals to achieve! And to everyone else succeeding their goals, all my mamavation sistas! Your support and encouragement has been wonderful!
