FRIDAY EVE

I am so not looking foward to my DD getting older. Heck, turning 5 has pulled many tuggs on my heart. Why do they have to grow so fast.

Anywhoo, have a great day on plan. If you keep eating all the good foods, you will be in the 180's in no time.

Happy Friday Scale was 193.0 this morning I had a good day and thought there would be a drop. My tummy has been upset though and I only drank like 1.5 bottles of water yesterday. I just put 2 water bottles on my desk and I'm trying to get them down. It's just so cold here!!! I have a slight headache as well so I hope I'm not coming down with something We have basketball tonight and tomorrow, then the 8th grade recognition. I do not want to miss it - praying my tummy starts to feel better Ok, one bottle of water down!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Don't get frustrated with the scale. You are down a solid 5+ each day now from only a week or two ago. That's great progress when you only have 30ish to go. Stay strong and it will move again.

Hey Gracie, hope you felt better and was able to enjoy the recognition...although I'm sure it was sad too. Great loss! I'm pulling for you to reach the 180's soon!!

Hi peeps My weekend was great - the 8th grade recognition was awesome. It was very emotional to watch my son and his friends and know that they will all soon go in different directions.

My eating was pretty good. I didn't weigh this morning as I didn't get a lot of sleep. I'm having some issues with my daughter being bullied at school. It seems that all is well now as I contacted the principal and he contacted the parents. Sheesh, I can't handle mean people I'm seriously emotionally spent right now and need a nap.....

I will check back later and try to post a pic of me and DS from the weekend.

Hope this pic works. I have on about 3" heels so I don't look so short next to DS

Awww, Gracie, that's a sweet pic. And you look skinny!!

I'm sorry about your daughter. That's rough. I wasn't bullied as a kid, but DH was and it breaks my heart to think about it for him and then causes me to worry for DS. It's hard being a mom.

Awwweeee, thanks Amber You made my day!

It's really hard to know that someone hurt your child. I am doing everything I can to protect her but sometimes people are just unreasonable and don't want to admit that their child can be mean. Plus, I'm exhausted from lack of sleep last night! I'm going to bed EARLY tonight

Glad it worked out regarding daughter, that's awful! Hope it's resolved. Nice pic with you and son, very handsome and you look great! He looks like you too...can't believe how tall he is to be only 13.

TGIF - it's been a rough week! DD Gracie is still home sick. I swear she has the flu but the doctor said it's a cold or viral. She's had high fevers, very sore throat, chills, can't breathe due to stuffy nose, etc. I haven't slept a full night all week because I worry too much. It breaks my heart too that she had to put up with bullying. I have to wonder if it didn't contribute to her getting sick. Mean girls suck!!!

As for me, I'm hanging in there diet wise. I didn't focus too much on it this week because I had to take care of G. I weighed this morning and I'm at 195.0 - I've pretty much been eating whatever but keeping it lower carb. We are thinking about joining a gym that the whole family can go to. It's like $113 per month but they have awesome facilities including huge basketball courts, swimming pool, sauna, hot tub, kid's zone activities, exercise machines, etc. - sounds like a good investment to me!

Hope everyone is hanging in there - hugs to everyone!

So sorry to hear about poor Gracie. I hope she feels better soon. And mean girls suck big time.

The gym sounds like a great investment for the entire family.

Oh no..I hope she feels better. Yeah, it's not a far-fetched thought that she may have gotten sick due to the bullying. That's awful!! I hope it works out for her and you, as mom I know you're worried so it's affecting you too. The gym sounds like a great way to have family time and include a very important factor, improving physical health! Oh I'd love the sauna...on a cruise I go nearly everyday. If I could ever build my dream house, it would have a steam and sauna room for sure. Oh yeah, I guess the exercise equipment matters too LOL. I hope you all feel better.

Sorry to hear that your child is being bullied. I am also sorry to hear that you haven't gotten very much sleep because of worry. IDK the worrying part ever goes away for us as mothers. You are doing the best that you can for her and I know she knows that. The gym for the whole family sounds wonderful, any investment in the family bond is a good investment. I hope you have a restful weekend.

Checking in quickly today. Gracie ended up testing positive for the flu on Saturday. She was so sick!!! Hopefully she will be 100% soon. She is still very weak and coughing. And of course at 3:30 am, Erin woke me up and she has a fever I'm praying it's not the flu but I bet it is. This flu is absolutely awful.

DS has a playoff game tonight at Central Catholic and I really want to go. He is also in a tournament that they won the first round on Sunday Gracie's team won on Sunday as well (tournament) but she couldn't go. DH coaches though so he was happy!

My weight this morning was 194.2 so I'm holding my own. We joined Healthtrax and LOVE it!!!! We went Saturday and Sunday. DH went last night and I would love to get there early evening today. It feels so good to exercise!!!

Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

I awoke to a nice big snowstorm this morning We've gotten about 8" so far and it's still snowing. School at least started at 10 am which was nice. DS won their playoff game last night! WooooHoooo! So excited We play Friday night in a tournament and then on Saturday for more diocesan playoff action Hoping to continue WINNING! One of our starters got injured last night though in the 3rd period. He was wrenching ini pain on the floor and ended up at Children's Hospital with a knee injury. He is seeing an orthopedic doctor today at 2. Praying he is okay!!!

Gracie should be going back to school tomorrow - keeping my fingers crossed. My poor baby has lost 8 lbs. and she only weighed 88 lbs. to start! I'm feeding her pumpking roll this morning to try and bulk her back up. She's really tall and skinny and now she just looks emaciated Once again, this flu is no joke!!!

Weight this morning 193.2 so I'm at least back at my 10 lb. goal and moving downward. I have an appt. at the gym tonight to learn the circuit (lifting) and I'll probably do some cardio, swim, and hit the hot tub and steam room/sauna Can't wait!!!
