Finding Me Mondays: Ready to find my motivation again...and HeartWalk 2010

My oldest is back in preschool again this week, although that really doesn't impact my schedule much since I work full-time but maybe I can use that as an excuse to find my motivation again! I've been in kind of a lull, but I only have until September 11th to prep for a 5K walk for the American Heart Association so it's time I found some motivation!

I'd love it if you felt like donating to the American Heart Association as part of HeartWalk 2010 (minimum online donation is $25 but your tax-deductible donation goes directly to AHA)! You can find out more by visiting my page on the Tarrant County Heart Walk here! And if you live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and you would love to come and join me on Saturday the 11th, send me an email and let me know! I'd love to invite you to join my team! Hey it's in Sundance Square in the morning and it's only a 5K WALK!

Okay, so where do I stand this week? My hubbie was out of town, the kids were stressing me out because they missed daddy, and well I was exhausted most of the week because I just don't sleep as well when he's gone! My hubbie did mention that I talked a lot in my sleep the first night so I really must have been exhausted! I didn't eat very well mainly because food at lunchtime is not settling well. I am working up the courage to go and see my GI doctor again, but I am not looking forward to more tests so I continue to postpone since I assume it's new meds causing the food sensitivities. Unfortunately its sensitivites to anything fresh and not in the carbohydrate family!

Monday, June 28th: 200.0 lbs, Size 14

Monday, July 26th: 198.5 lbs, Size 14
Monday, August 2nd: 197 lbs, Size 14
Monday, August 9th: 196.5 lbs, Size 14
Monday, August 16th: 196 lbs, Size 14 (at least it's down 0.5 lbs)
Monday, August 23rd: 196 lbs, Size 14 (no change and bummed but not surprised)
Monday, August 30th:  196 lbs, Size 14 (no change - excited that it stayed the same)

The temperature is finally starting to drop below 100 degrees in the evenings, so we should be able to get out for some bike rides and family walks this week!  I can't wait!  I've also got healthy meals planned for dinner each night and the kids are excited too!

Regardless of my current weight, my heart, and how I feel right now, I am still hoping that by next June, I will still be able to reach my goal of being able to keep up with my kids and husband and wear the red dress that hangs prominently in my closest (it blocks all my pants) so I have to look at it every will continue to be my motivation - even if this week, life, stress and too many snacks took over!

Join me in the journey of finding yourself, whether it's weight loss or something else by linking up below! We could all use some support!

I finally got into my red dress right before school started here. It took me a year, but I did it! Keep up the good work, and it will pay off. I lost 60 pounds last year!
