Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Angry But Determined Today Is The Day

Well today was the day.... it really was..... it was the day that I had mentally circled on the calendar... the new beginning.... the day that I figured out what works for me when it comes to nutrition....

What I didn't expect was for the scale at the Dr's office to reflect that I had gained 8lbs in 5 months... and this is in addition to the previous weight that I had already gained. 132.2... it's a number that I haven't seen except when I was pregnant with my son... and probably in the 3rd trimester at that.

Defeated, frustrated and angry best described me at that moment... but I left the doctor's office
more determined than ever to turn this weight gain around.

In fact, Lil Man and I went to the gym (which was the original plan). But now I was super determined to work off some steam..... and I did.

And I left the gym determined that this time I was going to see the results that I've wanted for the last couple of years.

I'm still not ready to share how I plan to regain control of my nutritional life... only because I want to see what happens in the next couple of weeks... and to see if I have finally found the answer for me.

Because the reality is what works for you may not work for me... and what works for me may not work for you.... we all have to find what works for us as an individual.... but I have reached a point that my weight gain is causing health issues. My blood pressure is high again (something that I have struggled with since I was a teenager). And I'm sure the extra weight isn't helping the joint pain that I experience from time to time.

So that being said.... stay tuned... cause things just got real.
