Hi there! I've been MIA for a little while. And, sadly the time that I could have spent blogging was spent eating. My weight is up and I'm not too happy about it. A couple of weeks ago, we had a little dinner party with friends and we brought dessert, the following day we hosted a dinner party, lots of yummy's and more dessert. The left overs spilled into the next week and then Mother's Day arrived in a Sea of wine and chocolates and all things fab. Then a graduation party we hosted last night, more goodies and party foods and wine. So, I indulged more than I should have and well. I'm paying for it now. I really thought that the weight gain was not accurate, 6 pounds! Whatever...but guess what, it went down then back up again. I'm very disappointed in myself and doing my best to get back on track. I don't feel well when I eat badly, I don't feel well when I'm judging myself harshly. I don't feel well when I gain at all! Hello...McFly? So, why do I do that to myself? Old habits die hard I suppose.
Mother's Day was really special. My husband treated me like a Queen, my boys were sweet too, I was showered with gifts and good wishes. I love being a Mom, it is by far the most rewarding thing I've done. I love my boys and my step children and I hope in the end that I do more things right in the Motherhood department then I do wrong. Here is a picture of me and my handsome sons on Mother's Day.
As far as the weight gain goes, I am disappointed in myself, but it is what it is and beating myself up about it isn't going to get the weight off of me. It's just time to do what I have to to get that off and the other 30 I want to lose. I have found in my dieting career that quick on is usually quick off...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Ha ha!
I hope all of you who are Mother's had a wonderful day and I hope you have a great rest of the week. Today is the Junior Ring Ceremony at my kid's school. My oldest son and my step-daughter will be seniors! I can't believe it. Take care!
