I am back!!!

WOW, it has been along time!

I can't believe how much has changed in the last few years. My children are now 17, 13 and 8 years old, my job has changed a few times, and I went back to college.
The one thing that has remained unchanged is my battle with my weight. I haven't lost any more weight but have managed to keep most of it off during this time. I have been primarily focused on my job and school and running my household that I put myself on the back burner for a while. Now its time to get on track once again. I am hoping by writing on this blog once again that it will keep me in line and finish the race that I had once started.

So lets get started!!!

Here's goes nothing. See you back here same day next week and see how things went :)

Having a purposeful life

Today my heart feels very heavy. I am really struggling lately with a lot of feelings that maybe my new job isn't the right fit for me.
It makes me cry every time I think about whether it is bringing my life purpose? I will tell you a little about what I do/did for a job and maybe you can relate a little more that way.
I previously worked at an assisted living center for the past 10 1/2 years before leaving in June. I currently am employed at a local hospital as a  housekeeper. I was hoping to use this as a "starter" position to get my foot in the door.
I really feel like I am not serving God in this position....Does that make sense?
I am a people person with a big heart and my gifts are being "bottled up" and put on the back burner.
I need to keep praying that God will show me what I should do....
Please Pray for peace and that if change is the right path for me.
In God I will serve no matter the place:)

New favorite drink

Yum!!! You can have this hot or cold. which ever you prefer. Such a nice drink for fall:)

*1/2 cup of Chai mix is 70 calories, 0g fat, and 0g fiber.
*1/2 cup 1% milk is 50 calories, 1.25g fat, and 0g fiber.

Mix the equal parts together and enjoy!! *If you are going to enjoy this hot, mix the equal parts together and heat over the stove in a small saucepan.

Poor food choices

Ahhhh!!!! I was doing so good yesterday until we went out for dinner.
We took my sister in law and my father in law out for dinner to a local pizza place to celebrate my sister in laws 40th birthday. I had good intentions, but pizza buffets are evil;) I consumed way to many calories, but today is a new day!!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Hello everyone!!

I am sorry for the lack of posts recently. School is off to a great start at our house and I am as busy as ever!! I have 3 children all at different schools this year. My oldest is at the high school, middle child at the middle school, and youngest at the elementary school. WOW, I suddenly feel very old;) I am also working many 12 hour shifts at the hospital and am part of our churches senior high youth group as a leader this year.

As the changes in my schedule have changed I have also been slacking a TON in the dieting department. I have been trying, but it gets boring!! I think I can cheat here and there and it won't add up...WRONG!! I need to step it up again and need some motivation. So, we booked a Spring vacation to Tennessee in April. I think that will help me get on the ball again! I am very excited about this vacation and all the hiking we are planning on doing so I need to get my butt in shape{literally}:0)

I am planning on doing my first official weigh in next Friday so stay tuned for that...

I look forward to hearing how everyone has been doing since we all have talked last, so please comment I would love to hear from all of you!

I am here:)

Oh, how the summer has flown right by! We are leaving for our last camping trip of the summer and it is so sad to see it come to an end:(

On the happier side of things. I have lost those stubborn 4 lbs. That I have been up the last few weeks. Back down to -50lbs!!!! I had my yearly and my doctor was so excited to see my weight loss since last year. I lost a huge amount of body fat, blood pressure was great(that's normal for me anyways) and I am still currently on no medications except a multi vitamin:) Overall a great appointment besides having to have a pap smear;) lol!!

Have a great day everyone!
