The more times I try.... the more times I fail miserably

Why this title? Because I have had a terrible week. I weighed in at 215... yes a gain of 2.5 lbs. I wish I still had TOM because them I could blame that on him... but after a hysterectomy.. well.. you just don't have an excuse anymore! LOL

Why am I failing miserably? There are a couple of things that are causing this... (not that I am using them as excuses to eat badly)...


1. We are selling our house....and if you have ever done this you would know that it means keeping it spotless ALL the time. I have two toddlers... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaccccccccckkkkkkkkk. OK, so the house isn't even on the market yet.. but just trying to get it to where it looks presentable is killing me. Today I am redecorating and putting away a lot of pictures so as to make the rooms look a little less cluttered.

2. Yesterday I had to drive my daughter 4 hours to the eye surgeon, where he put some painful drops in her eyes and scared her to the point where she will never walk into a doctors office again.Then drove 4 hours back home last night. She is 3 years old and will have to have surgery in a couple of weeks to remove a cyst under the eye. I hate the thought of her having to have surgery at such a young age.

3. I have been given the job of also finding a new house for us. Can I just say that Realtors are as bad as used car salesmen!! They don't stop. The second you walk onto the lot, or call them on the phone, they are on top of you. I cant stand it. Hubby and I have actually decided that , since we cant find a house big enough that we like, we are going to build our own house. YEAH.. I love the idea of having a say in what my house will look like!

So, all in all... a lot has been going on. I know better then to use excuses... and I am not really using them as excuses. I just know that when I become stressed, I think of myself last. Which means that I eat what is easiest, I don't drink any water, and at the end of the day I am so exhausted (mentally) that I don't want to exercise.

I have not been using my Satiatrim... which was working great... and I still have two or three cases of the stuff left... so today, I am back on the wagon. Will I fall off again? probably... but do I just give up?? NEVER. I owe myself that much!

Have a blessed day...

Life happens. It's understandable that you don't have a lot of extra time (OR ANY!) with all that you have on you right now.
Congrats on building a house though. That's awesome. I can't wait to hear more about this!

I had a cyst removed from the corner of my right eyebrow, going down towards the eye.

Like your little girl, I was ~ 4 when I had it done.

The only part of the surgery that stayed w/ me.......I CAN NOT stand anyone touching my eyes/eye area.

Going to the optometrist(sp?) is pure agony for me!

Other then the scar I have to show off, it went well.

Good luck keeping the house cleaned w/ the rugrats!

Wow you have alot going on!!! I hope your daughter is feeling better and isnt to scared by the experience.

You've also got the NEVER give up part right. We all slip up but we can NEVER give up :)

You are having a tough time and I am sorry. Good luck with your daughter I would be worried too about the cyst. I know that she will fight you next time she has to go to the eye doctor but that is what bribes are for - cookies anyone?!?!

I am dealing with trying to sell our house too. I am a clean freak so normally I keep the house picked up. Well until my husband has my daughter by himself from 8am to 9am and when he goes to work the house is a diaster. But he is also the realtor who is trying to sell the house. Did you call my husband a used car saleman!! Just teasing! If I know there is a showing I try and have it perfect and I know if he is going to show the house he will scheduled time for him to go home and do a quick clean up. Maybe just try an keep the toys picked up, kitchen clean, beds made and if a showing comes up do the quick 5 mintue clean up everything else.

Talk about stress - I don't think I ever want to build my own house. I have heard that if your marriage can survive a massive remodel or building a house you have a strong marrige. I would just try and find something new. I want my next house to be new, I am tired of old houses with too many problems to fix and not enough money to fix them.
