Life. It's been a whirlwind lately. It feels like absolutely everything is out of control. My oldest started Kindergarten and, although he loves it, there are growing pains. My youngest is having a very tough time that his brother is not at preschool with him. There have been a lot of tears. My husband is out of town, so a lot of this i've dealt with on my own.

Eating has not been perfect, still. One of the few things I can control and I'm NOT controlling it. Now, I'm not bingeing and eating everything in sight, but, I'm doing a lot of mindless eating. Tracking is a thing of the past, and I have not moved at all in months now, probably. My emotions are everywhere, and anxiety is running high. The good news is, the husband gets home tonight and I can carve out a little more me time. Running always makes me happier and I feel more in control, so I see a run in my future.

Right now this craziness is so overwhelming. There are so many things that I need to do that I'm just not doing anything. I've just plopped myself down in the middle of a storm and I'm watching it all go by.

So, it's time to set out some goals for the week: track every bite, starting today; run three times; set out some individual time with each child; go on a date with hubby. All of these things will make me feel better, and will be better for my family.


  1. Mini goals for the week is a great place to start. Life always has a way of throwing us a bunch of curveballs all at once. You've had a lot of big changes lately... Just take it one step at a time! :)

  2. very cool! I like your goals for the week :) Organization really helps to not only accomplish a lot, but feel good about the steps that you are taking in a specific direction. We are rooting for you!

  3. I like the new fancy look of the bloggy blog girl!!!!!
    Im with Karen.... We are totally rooting for you!!!!!!!

  4. Isn't it crazy how life gets in the way? You are not alone, we are here for you! My first started kindergarten too, its hard. Necessary but hard. Hugs to you!

  5. You can do it mama! Just remember to take it one day and one meal at a time.
