First weigh in

Pin It Now! Well I had my first weigh in this week and I was down 4 1/2 pounds I am a little under a 1/3 of the way to my first goal of 5%
I have cut down my pop intake which is the hardest thing for me some days I have had none and others 1 so I am doing so good
I have also increased my fiber intake a ton and eliminated fast food 95% from my diet and I have noticed a marked improvement in my IBS
So all the way around I am already starting to feel so much better!

Weight watchers and Wii Fit

Pin It Now! Well then I have once again joined WW, lets just hope that Dave does not lose his job like the last 2 times I have signed up, I hope it is not an Omen. MY first goal is to lose 15 pounds, I have decided that if I do small manageable goals I may be more apt to stick with it and not give up, so My overall goal is 110 pounds but we are just going to chip away at it 15lbs at a time
We also Finally found the Wii Fit today and we purchased it and LOVE it. I am sorry we did not buy it sooner, I am hoping to get in a pattern of working out with it for 30 minutes every morning monday through friday and then just playing with the kids will give me my work out on the weekends. I just hope my MS doesnt let me down. The kids are enjoying it as well and I am hoping since they do not get out as much in the winterthat this will make exercise seem like fun and they will WANT to do it, so far so good.
SO I will check in here once a week on WW meeting day and post my weight loss or GOD FORBID Gain and my progress. Here is to a healthy new year and a new start to a healthy life

2009 List of things to accomplish

Pin It Now! Well it is that time of year again and It is time to start Fresh, so here is MY TO DO list for 2009!

1.I definitely need to get back to scrappin!! First of all it is something I plan on giving my Children when they marry and lets face it My time is running out LOL, and second of all, it is my therapy and my ME time, I come back from scrapping a much calmer and much more relaxed person and Refreshed to start again. (Yeah, I have jumped right in and am back to scrappin, Nat and I went last friday and time flew and I got a ton done, we were so pumped we signed up to go again this friday and heather(dave R) boss is going with us) it should be fun we met a few nice ladies too. Bonus)

2.Try not to stress about having another baby, if God wants it to happen for us then it will.

3.To continue with Dave and I's newly renovated marriage, which includes more US time, more family times, and Date night, I also want to keep the spark alive and starting with Valentines Surprise him with little get aways every few months, NO KIDS ALLOWED LOL

4.Back to weight watchers, I want to be healthier, I want to get back to walking a couple times a week, back to eating right and NO FAST FOOD (well I have gone back to weight watchers and will weigh in today! I got fast food yesterday for the 1st time in 1 week, granted I ate a grilled chicken wrap, but it made me sick all day, so I have learned that my stomach issue is directly contributed to the bad food choices I was making, so wont be doing that again.)

5.Get more organized, my house used to be meticulously organized and orderly and ever since I was diagnosed with MS, one bad thing after another has plagued our family which in turn has caused our house to become disheveled, THIS IS GOING TO STOP, starting when the kids go back to school on Monday. Great time to purge when there are no little voices telling me, BUT MOM. (we are going to help the clutter issue by getting a storage unit tomorrow, and all the baby clothes were sorted into rubber maids so they are all going, also the baby gear, and all the christmas and holiday bins to give us more room in the closets and also my wheelchair and walker so that gets out of the laundry room, this should help us start the organizing process, the more big things out of the way will give us room and show us what needs to be packed away and thrown away.) (UPDATE got the storage unit and have moved all the baby items to it and will work on christmas bins and summer clothes bins this week, I feel so much better already)

6.We are trying to be more calm as parents and I want us both to continue to be calm effective parents.

I know there is more, so as I think of them Iwill add on to this list.
