I am tired. It’s one reason I hate Monday’s.  Sunday night I seem to think I can stay up later because I am not tired enough to go to bed. I got about 5 hours sleep so it will catch up with me today.

I have to give myself a pat on the back becuase for the past 3 weeks I have brought my lunch with me to work. I may have missed a day or two but it’s much better than going out everyday.  I have to become a frugal queen because as of next week I am paying for 2 houses which will suck.  I really need to become obsessed with coupons I think.  I am just not patient.

Well I can say I am about 10lb lighter… I got my heavy thick hair all chopped off. LOL I wish it was from weight loss though. With the summer heat I knew it was time to let the long hair go. I have to say I like the wake up and go look. Everyone this morning was like “Hey WTH” LOL

As far as weight loss goes. I really need to find my scale and see where I am at. Last week I managed to bring my lunch so that helped to not get fast food.  This week I am working on more water and Continue reading Happy Healthy Monday

Wow what a week it’s been. We got all moved last Saturday and I have been in unboxing hell all week. Good news is that I only have about 10 boxes upstairs left to unpack. Bad news is that I don’t know where to put some of the stuff and I have about 20 boxes downstairs to unpack.  But I love my new house and I pray my old house sells soon.

On the healthy side this past week I have been packing my lunches. Which is a huge plus for me since the only thing around here is fast food really.  I have been drinking more water the past couple weeks as well. I really need to find my Continue reading Happy Healthy Monday

Hope everyone had a good healthy week.  Here in the midwest outside is like a sauna. I am not liking this heat at all. Supposed to be 96 today but it’s to feel like 103 with the humidity. I think the week is to be like that too.

I have my in-laws from England in town for the next 10 days. Maybe I can get them to pack for me. LOL They leave on the 16th, we close on our house on the 15th, and we move on the 18th. I will be packing around them. Hubby has the 10 days off so I hope he can get some stuff done but I am doubtful.

Good morning everyone.

First I want to say to all my Mamavation friends that I am so sorry I have not been around in quite some time. I needed a bit of a break from Twitter/computer. I am so out of touch with all of you I haven’t a clue as to what has been going on. Am I still even welcome?!? LOL

As for my weight loss it’s been slim to none. I don’t think I have gained. I haven’t stepped on the scale in MONTHS. I really don’t want to face it but I know I should.  I need to work on a plan to get this weight off. I kinda feel helpless because my knees are so bad that it hurts to even walk. So not sure how I am supposed to exercise.  I know if I just change the way I eat that will have a big impact itself.

What a week it’s been. Ever since I got back from Chicago it seems my weight is on the rise. I can’t really afford weight watchers, but would love to know the new plan, I have decided to log my food on Sparkpeople. It’s another site I have used for years, on and off, and love. It’s free after all. If you are on Spark look me up, I am bkbond.

I hope my Mamavation Sistah’s are doing fantastic. I hope to be more active. I could use the support. I don’t get much in real life so my online friends mean the world to me. I hope you all still will welcome me. If you all could give me a nudge to drink water I would appreciate it.

Okay I hope you all have a super week. Enjoy the recipe.

Well I only managed to gain .6 over Thanksgiving. I am so estatic over that. We got new bedroom furniture over the weekend and when we put things back in drawers I made hubby go through his clothes and get rid of what he didn’t want. He made this comment to me “It’s not a matter of what I don’t wear it’s what I CANT wear” When we got married almost 12 years ago hubby was a size 29. He is now between a 38-40. Used to wear a size small shirt and now a large. He finally has realized that he needs to lose weight. In a way I am thankful because now he knows how I feel and two he won’t keep bad stuff in the house.

Well not sure how healthy it is after all I ate over this Thanksgiving holiday. Ugh. But moving on and doing the best I can by Christmas. I did lose a pound last week, before turkey day, so not sure what Wed this week will bring me. Need to really get working out these next two days.  These are the days I am thankful for my Wii EAS Active and the Wii Fit!

My goals this week is to get in 30 min a day of exercise at least, 1 full hour would be fantastic if I can swing it. I am thinking about getting the Walk at Home DVD’s have you all tried them?? With winter coming I don’t get to the gym when it snows and I would like no excuses even though I have my EAS Active I like choices.

I am finally over being sick. Fingers crossed I don’t get it again. Winter is just around the corner now here in Iowa. I was enjoy the 70 degree weather in November but knew it wouldn’t last.

We get our dumpster on Friday so I get to start dumping things. I am hoping by cleaning the house and moving to a new one will bring new things. New things are what I need right now.  Thing in the Bond household are not that great so I need something to give, for the better.

Well I have managed to get another cold. It just never ends. I think in this past month I have had maybe 3 good days. So I am a bit disappointed that I didn’t get anything done around the house. What really irratates me is that my husband had Friday off and has Mon and Tues off and I bet you anything he doesn’t do anything around here. Poor baby has worked too hard he needs to rest.. Whatever!!

I did manage to buy some things to make my lunches so this week I need to focus on eating healthy. Both hubby and I am going to try not to eat out all week, lunch Continue reading Happy Healthy Monday
