I hope you are all fabulous!

Tomorrow is weigh in day! Last week I was 208. I am REALLY hoping that I am SAME tomorrow. Being DOWN would be a plus, but just not being UP would be great.

HOWEVER, I am prepared to be UP. Meaning, if my weight is up, I won't be upset or discouraged. This week has not been the greatest.....Tuesday, WED and today have been GREAT, but the weekend and Monday were NOT. SO.....I need to be prepared. It takes more than a few days of eating right to get results! And I have not started my exercise routine yet. I've been busy (as always) and fell into the "Well, it's already WED.....I will start Monday." :) That's ok though! I will be 24 weeks on Monday and READY to get back to exercise! I still have 16 weeks left in this pregnancy and what I do or not do will make a HUGE difference!

Goal #1 No thinking about the past! Horray! I've been doing GREAT! I am keeping my eyes on what I can STILL accomplish during this pregnancy, rather than how much I have messed up. Another neat way I am thinking about it is:

Our anniversary is AUG 20.  It will be TWENTY years for us! My husband is very close to getting his pilots license and we want to plan a weekend away with just the (new) baby! A first EVER for us! I would LOVE to be in as good of shape as I POSSIBLY can be by then. I will have approx 6 months after my baby is born! But imagine if I just eat junk and don't exercise etc. until I have the baby? In comparison to eating great and getting back to my exercise NOW? It would be an incredible difference! For the baby's health AND my own!

Goal #2 No scales! I've stayed OFF the scales and it feels great! I am looking forward to tomorrow though!

Goal #3 Be happy with myself! ahhhh I didn't do very good with this yesterday. I am really running out of clothes that fit me well and it leaves me feeling very fat and ugly! I was feeling ready to cry and told Scott how I felt....He said " How can the most beautiful woman in the world feel fat and ugly?" He then told me to go shopping and get lots of clothes! I went with my oldest daughter and 3 littlest. It was a blast and I now have new maternity skirts/shirts/cardigans/belly bands and camis!! It feels sooooooooo amazing! Nothing like making you feel terrible when your clothes are all tight!

Goal #4 Priorities - I have not been able to start my little boot camp this week.......MONDAY! lol Life was just too busy for me to get it all organized, but I am getting there! The children were laughing the other night about the "worse punishments EVER" and talking about WHAT they were. My ears perked up....Apparently, they can't stand putting their noses against the wall OR against each other! LOL I thanked them for reminding me of that great consequence! :) They groaned (with smiles!)

But one of the things we will be concentrating on is treating each other with the respect we would treat a new friend. We have become way to grouchy with each other and I don't like it!

Goal #5 My eating and drinking have been WONDERFUL. I had a little bit of soft pretzel with fake cheese dip when out shopping yesterday. I was STARVING and..........oh well. BUT trust me, it was still a success compared to how I NORMALLY cave when I am out and about and starving!

I had started to get a little heart burn at nights for the last week when I was eating bad. That was a red light! I ONLY get that in pregnancy and ONLY when I am eating junk! That is GONE the last few nights! Horray! I am feeling great!

Exercise.......I already talked about that.

Sleep........OK......Spending too much time with hubby! :) (Hey, priorities!)

Overall, feeling FABULOUS! I hope everyone else is doing FABULOUS too!
