thought it was time to make time for another blog.

Sunday, April 11, 2010

so here it is.i am tired as all the kids are ill again but apart from that and my hay fever i have never felt better.for the first time in a long time(so long i can´t remember when it was)i have not had to give in or fight even emotional eating/binging.the thought didn´t even once enter my head and i am hoping it stays that way.i lost 3lbs last week and 2lbs the week before so things couldn´t be better on that front.i even got into a pair of jeans that didn´t fit when i tried them on last month and i haven´t been able to get into them since before i was pregnant with ayman(at little over two years ago.)i am slowly getting my house sorted out and hope to be able to make the time this week to either do some sewing or knitting,something i normally only have time to do when i or one of the kids are in hospital.before i married and had kids i used to do some form of craft work every day.on the exercise front i am also doing well.doing over 10,000 steps a day,at least 5km a day on the bike,25 push ups which i hope to slowly increase and 100 squats which i also hope to increase.that is every day and occassionally when i have the time i will also do some form of other exercises.so all in all life is good,i wish the kids wasn´t ill,i wish i wasn´t so tired but we can´t have everything in our life that we want.if we did we would have nothing to strive for or look forward to.i hope you my spark friends are having just as good a life.take care,keep smiling and look at the things you have and that you can do rather thean the things you don´t have or can´t do.take care and god bless you all.love karen
