Weigh In Tuesday- Rebooting

So you know the famous Ctrl + Alt + Del sequence on your computer? Yeah, you know it's what you do when you don't know what to do to fix your computer.  You push all three of those buttons together and it reboots your computer.  Well that is where I am in my Healthy Goal Plan.  Yup, I'm gonna reboot and restart my plan.

The last few weeks have been difficult.  Last week I had 2 dentist appointments for Mr. Samuel…one regular one consult for oral surgery.  Yesterday morning he had oral surgery and we are still recovering (how does one tell a 6-year-old boy that he can't have pizza for dinner?).  Besides all the extra appointments there has just been a whole lot of activity around her and well counting calories hasn't made it on the priority list…it was just two new of a habit and was quickly lost :(

Still I want to work at it…I want to be healthy.  I want this to happen.  NEED it to.

So I'm gonna take this week and really evaluate my life, my commitments and the things I really want to get done.  Then I'm going to re-plan my healthy goal.  I might take more time.  I might start exercising.  I might lower my weekly weight loss goal.  I'm really not sure at the moment.

What I do know is that I'm gonna keep blogging about this.  I know I really need support and I need to know that others are out there and are watching, waiting.  So if you would all be so very kind and leave a comment or send me an email (under contact) and give me some tips, advice or even a resource link.  I have found SparkPeople, but I admit I'm not that impressed, in addition to the fact I can't remember my login name let alone my password :/

In other news, yesterday kicked off Kid's Clothes Week Challenge over at Elsie Marley.  I'm participating and last night I sewed for an hour after the kids were in bed (well, Elsa was up for part of it).  I'm hoping today to get my hour of sewing in the morning but we'll see (the kids have been waking up super early lately).

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and Mother's Day!



  1. Hang in there, Buffy. You can do it! Have you visited www.hungrygirl.com? You can sign up for her daily e-mails. She gives tons of low calorie/high pleasure recipes plus lots of tips on what to buy (and not buy) at the store. Check it out.

  2. Keep it up Buffy. You aren't in this for a short term fad diet... you are doing this for a lifestyle change. It's ok if it takes a while to figure it all out.
    Also... what about planning out your meals the day before. That way you could count the calories ahead of time and then hopefully stick to your plan. I know for me, I eat basically the same stuff every day for breakfast and lunch... it's basically just figuring in dinner calories then.
    You can do this!


I love to hear from you! Really I do. It brightens my day when you comment so please don't be shy and tell me what you think...come back too because I try really hard to reply to your comments here. Thanks again for stopping by.
