Tell All Tuesday - Week 36

I guess it is just going to be one of those days...

I got up early to get a few things done around the house before it was time to get David and Kirstyn out the door and before my little mister helper was up and in full force. I worked on cleaning up the kitchen since we have been busy making presents for Sunday School teachers, Gym childcare workers, and Pre-school teachers. Then I got myself dressed and ready to go, got David and Kirstyn on their way and then had to go open the door to James' room (I think he was awake but he was being very quiet so I usually leave him there until he calls me.) I got him dressed, packed him a portable breakfast and rushed out the door to Weight Watchers.

I knew I was going to be up a little because my Crohns is bothering me some so I wasn't looking forward to looking at a sticker in my book that said +1.2 and realizing that I now need to lose 1.8 this week in order to officially make my 20 in 20 goal. But, all that was okay because I would find encouragement in the meeting....but, today, because of the weather and the leader not driving in from another area, there was no meeting. Just facing the scale and leaving... I am frustrated. I have so much I need to get done that I should welcome the extra time added on to my day, but no, I am aggravated. Had I known there would be no meeting I could have gone to the gym this morning instead of waiting until tonight. I would have been able to watch the season finale of Biggest Loser live rather than on the DVR.

Okay, now to face the week ahead. I have to get lots of exercise in. I have to eat clean. I have to save my flex points for David's 30th Birthday on Saturday. I have to get off of my butt right now and get busy on all of the to-dos that are stressing me out. What is your plan for the week?

Chin up Natalie, you will meet your goal. I am sorry your day didn't pan out how you planned and that your Crohns is bothering you.

I am sending big hugs and big motivational pats on the back! You can do this girl, I know you can!

This time of year gets stressful with all we have on our plates. Sounds like it's all getting a bit much, thankfully it will all be over soon.

And? YOU ARE HOTTER FOR THE HOLIDAYS! Everything else is gravy!

I was glad to read in your next post that you're feeling better. I still had to write and tell you that I am very impressed and inspired by your diligence to your 20 in 20 goal. (it took me that long to lose half as much because I couldn't stick with a healthy routine) I hope you meet your goal, but even if you don't, what you have done is still very impressive. Good luck!

You can do it. Keep on track and know that this is a new week!

Even if you miss your Christmas goal, you ULTIMATELY will get there because look how far you have come to this point.

You look amazing and you have done a FATANSTIC JOB! I am proud of you and I tip my (santa) hat to you!

Ugh - how frustrating for you! It reminds me again that people don't get upset because of poor circumstances, they get upset because things did not conform to expectations. Had you known about the absent meeting leader you would have done things completely differently. Argh. Here's to making lemonade from those lemons.

And keep plugging towards your goal - you can do it!!!!

I agree with many points. But in some areas, I feel we need to be more aggressive. Just my opinion. Love ya. vintage wedding dresses. Louboutin Shoes pumps christian louboutin. Bridal Wedding Dresses
