#Mamavation Monday 3/7

Last week went well. Although I was sick for a day and didn't get any exercise in that day, but I ate healthy. I think I really needed that as a rest day anyway, because my shoulders were killing me! I was bad only one time last week and that was yesterday. A friend came over and ordered pizzas for us for dinner. I was so completely tired, that I just ate. For the last 3 nights I have only been sleeping 3-4 hours, then I wake up and can't go back to sleep.

With this frustration of not loosing any weight and not loosing any inches(now that I am looking way back, wow!) I have stayed about the same since December! One thing that I do remember is I started having a snack in between breakfast & lunch and lunch & dinner about the same time I stopped loosing. I would have a snack weather I was hungry or not. Last week I realized this and I decided to stop with the in between snacks, but if I am really hungry I will munch on some veggies, fruit, or almonds. Another thing that I was not accounting for was coffee creamer! So, I have started today with one cup measured out and that is all that I will use. By the way I LOVE Coconut milk!! We will see if this helps anything. One big thing that I have been so unsure of is "How many calories should I be eating?" I think about 1200 is good, but I am not sure. If any of you want to chime in that would be great! I have been eating around 1500-2000 a day, so I think 1200 should be good. I know not to go under that though.

I am also doing the 100 Push up Challenge! I did 16 on my initial first test and I will be starting the program today!

Yesterday, we also found out that it was the last week for JR to apply for his unemployment. We are hoping that he can get an extension, but who knows. He is on his way to find out as I write this. With in the next month or so he will be back to work, but this is just so scary. I have applied for a few jobs, but have yet to hear back.


Update on my mom: She had her appointment with the surgeon from Pittsburgh and it went really well! He is expecting her surgery to only take 2-3 hours instead of the 7-8 from the other guy. Also she won't be out of work for as long. This guy was totally different from the other doctor and has heard nothing but good things about him. 

Here is what I did last week:

I won't be weighing in until later this week and I will update you all then.

Sounds like a good plan for the week ahead. I'm thinking about a P90x/Insanity hybrid.

Hay girl!
Thanks for yoru continutes support for me! it means a lot!

Did you notice that I have finally entered "active status" for coaching! It's about time!

Anyway...don't fret, everyone plateaus for a period or two when they are in a weight loss regiment, so no worries, just keep it up! You are doing great too.

Now if I could just it least one coach in my down line we will be even better!

Congrats on the 45 days smoke free! Kicking the habit is killer for me right now.
I. HATE. PLATEAUS! They totally, 100% suck. Kudos to you for keeping at it, next thing you know, those numbers will start a-changin!
Have an awesome week!

45 days smoke free? That's an incredible milestone! I'm so excited for you!

Oh no on the sleep! As someone who has a sleeping disorder, I feel your pain. I did find that melatonin helped me get to sleep and stay asleep!

Have a great week and glad to hear that your mom's surgery isn't going to take as long as anticipated!

Best wishes to her (and you!)
