check in- more about me and doing well!

Monday, October 12, 2020

Been super busy lately and time is flying by. How is it October already?
We are working very hard here and I'm meeting a lot of financial goals already.
Weight goals are slow going but I'm finally going in the right direction. I've said this before only to crash and burn and regain all weigh lost but I'm determined to make things happen this time.

The fall challenge is helping me. I have that goal weight burned in my brain and think about it every day. I saw the scale go down finally this week and am going to keep pushing forward.

I'm getting more good days logged on my calendar too!

I'm planning on setting some time to make a goal list like I did last time with rewards. That really helped my motivation last time. I also want to start measuring myself again every 2 months. I think I'll set that for November 1st.

Every 5 lbs should be some type of reward, non-food of course.

Kids/life check: The kids are doing well. We clash a bit with at home learning. My son is stubborn and likes to get his way. He's the oldest and most confident of the 3. He wants to be the boss lol. I have to constantly remind him that I'm MOM. The problem is, they want to be my friend and I kind of love that. I love watching movies with them and just being close to them. But when I become the authority figure, that's when things are out of control. So, I've been taking charge lately and assigning chores and schedules and setting boundaries. It's helping a bit.

We've been watching the 31 days of Halloween movies on freeform. It's been nice just enjoying fall. We've also been getting out for more walks now that the weather has cooled down!

The baby is starting to talk more every day. She is getting a personality of her own! Terrible twos are coming....

and my middle girl is outright tough. She's been taking at home boxing/karate lessons and her dad built a punching bag for her to practice on. She's obsessed with all karate kid movies. She's 7 now and also becoming stubborn. She does have a very sweet side too though.

That's what's going on now. Thought I'd write a bit about my kids as they are a big part of my life and a bit stressful.

Anyways, I'll write again soon!

More pumpkins this week! Gonna keep it up!

    I can definitely relate with you on the kids and weight loss goals! My kids are also distance learning and giving me stress especially my youngest, a girl of 12 years. She also wants things her way and now my straight A girl has 3 D'S . Laying down laws isn't easy for sure and being their friend at the same time.
    Keep pushing forward! I like your reward goals I will give that a shot!

    Love your calendar idea! Great job with your workouts and corralling your kids. It's always hard being a parent. Especially now. Good luck!
