Welcome to My World...Where to begin. My days consist of: getting my two kids ready for school, running my home daycare for 10 hours a day/5 days a week, running errands/paying bills, taking care of my two dogs, cooking, cleaning, and bringing kids to dance/ball games/scouts,etc. My husband, Rick, has been traveling for over a year now. Almost every week to every other week, he is going to Athens, GA or Memphis, TN or Clinton, OH.... It makes me feel like a single mom. I don't get much time for myself and I feel like I am non-stop busy. I can't take a break for myself and when I do, I am so tired. I just want to veg-out. So "these are the days of our lives".
Why am I writing this blog? I have so much in my head and no where to put. Yes, that's true but I have struggled with my weight most of my life. When I was in high school, I lost alot of weight and was content with everything about me. Somewhere along the way of "juggling" college with a fulltime job and having two children, I lost myself. I stopped caring about what I looked like and did alot of emotional eating. When I get overwhelmed with life's challenges, I tend to eat. I know that I have an eating disorder. Its a terrible pattern of snacking, and loving food so much that I don't even think about calories or fat. If it tastes good, it is a small satisfaction for my crazy life. I want to do this blog because I know that if I make myself accountable to all of you, I will succeed. I want to lose weight, tone muscles, and gain the body/self-confidence I want & need. My husband is on board with me and doing great. I have tried Weight Watchers before and lost weight but I didn't stick to the healthy lifestyle.
So, cheers to a new life changing journey.... it will be a challenge and a struggle, but I know that with the help of my supports and my Lord Jesus Christ, I will conquer my fears, get out of my depressed & lazy ways, and make myself a new person!
