new season.... new challenge. .. maybe just maybe a new sunny gal ;)

Saturday, September 13, 2014

So, in general I'm abou a week behind. When the new challenge started we had horrid stuff happening. Things going wrong in every direction. Praying for a way, a plan in moving. My eldest twin slipping and falling though the living room window, leading to er visit and mt losing my mind. Two days fighting with managment to get something done. Two day weekend spending out of town one day in houston one day in galveston to see some family members of my husband who were in town a short while from Mississippi and he hasn't seen in 10+ years and have never met my self or our boys. Then back home to fight again with management for two more days to try and finally get window fixed. Which... I finally won the battle. So.... is being late.. let me say... I do pledge to my self and my sunny gal sisters the following.
I pledge I will attempt to at least 3 times a week post in our group here on spark. I'm thinking this will end up holding me more accountable even though its kind of difficult still just being on the ohone.
I pledge that I will care about me. I always drop my self aand put me on the back burner when it comes to my kids and family. While my babies are truly the most important thing to me. I know if I don't take care of me... I won't be here for them and that is not a reality I want to face.
I pledge that while I might not enter everything into the trackers. I will start writting down what I eat and blog it. Even if its just once a week and an awful long blog. I will carry my book and pen with me every where.
I pledge to get more water in. And actually eat. I'm having a problem with not eating breakfast and drinking coffee til about three and then finally realizing I'm starving.
I pledge I will not eat after 9pm. I know that sounds late. But every once in a while we put the kids down to bed at 8 & we try to have a dinnner together.
I also pledge to drop the sweets. I'm not exactly sure how yet. Other than switching for more fruit or something haha. But since Daniel I have the worst sweet toooth.

Now.... onto this weeks true challange. We Did this go to....


Mine said something ... well heck this is what it said....
so... adding in a 25 % body weight puts me a lil above my goal weight that's in my head of 175. This was a lil above at about 178.
Which I can't lie..... I think I love adore.... something.... wayyyyyy more than bmi. I just honestly think bmi is bull crap. ..... and not just for my self. But I see my kids when I go to certain offices... they tell me daniel is obese...gabe is over weight and ezekiel is almost over weight.. he's "borderline" & its crap!!!!!! Not everyone falls on that scale where they want them to be. The weight they want me at is skinnier than my husband....
Craycrayyyyyy. I don't wanna be perfect. . I wanna be healthy. Thats it.

Oh and one other I pledge. .. which I don't admit.... I pledge to be smoke free by the end of the season!!!!! Come hell or high water!!!!
Ok..... I'm out. :)
