Finding Me Mondays: Being sick all week takes all motivation away...

Some weeks are definitely easier to stay motivated than others...and some weeks are just plain impossible.  This week was plain impossible..not that I felt like eating, just attempting to start exercising was out of the question.  I came down with a nasty infection of some sort...cold? flu? who knows?  All I know is that by Saturday I was running a 103 degree fever and feeling in the Sunday is was down to 99.7 with Dayquil but no energy whatsoever...only other symptom is a slightly runny nose and coughing...but I always get lots of coughing since I have viral-induced asthma.  Ugh!  And with a cough like mine, just walking across the room can set me off into a major fit!  Luckily, I have no out of town travel planned soon but I'm ready to feel better!  There are so many memories to be made this time of year....the tree is up, but has no decorations because I didn't have the energy...a total bummer of a weekend!  The kids miss their mamma and I'm hoping that I'll be better soon and then be able to get my butt into shape and keep up with them like their daddy does!

Since the list was getting long, I'm going to start posting a link to the long list and just include the previous week and this week's weigh-in every Monday!  (Long list June 21st (203.5 lbs) - September 13th (194 lbs))
Last weigh-in: September 13th/September 26th - 194lbs, Size 14
October 11th - 191 lbs
October 18th/25th & November 1st/8th/15th - 192 lbs
November 22nd/29th & Dec 6th - 194 lbs
(ready to gain control and lose weight - ugh and the holidays are now upon us too!)

As I've said every week though, regardless of my current weight  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!  I get tired of being the one behind the camera every time and am ready to be the one in front of the camera (smiling) more often!  I don't want my kids to wonder what I looked like when they were young!

Join me in the journey of finding yourself, whether it's weight loss or something else! We could all use some support! I'd love to hear your stories!
