Too much Diet Coke added to back to school stress topped off with some binge eating and I am up 1.6 pounds. Argh..that is frustrating. The good news is there is no more soda in the house. The kids will both be in school Monday and I can breathe just a little more easy. Life with children 24-7 as I have known it for years is about to change and I am finally going to get some me time. You can't appreciate time for yourself until you have gone so long without it. Smile.

Some of the things I am looking forward to with my new found freedom: long, quiet walks in the fall, grocery shopping and actually being able to relax while doing so and take my time perusing the aisles, exercising without munchkins running off with my weights or getting in my way while I am doing so, window shopping at the local antique stores, doing some deep house cleaning.....the skies the limit! Big smile!

So yeah, I gained, but this hell week is almost over and moving on and looking toward a better weigh in next week.

Oh and one more thing.. I will be going to the gym so I will be weighing in on the physicians scale. Hope its more accurate than mine!


  1. Sorry about the loss....but you are moving forward. Kick that soda can to the curb, get to the gym, and enjoy some mommy down time. Please if you feel like you are in the midst of a binge....msg, text, email me.
    love you!!!

  2. thanks Becky! Just waiting on Monday to get here so I can take a little breather. :)

  3. Hi Kim!

    YEAH for me time. That is so exciting and a milestone for sure...

    Sounds like you are going to use your ME time with style girl! I LOVE checking out Antique shops. Boy I am SO ready for Fall too.. it's been crazy hot here too... (Orlando).. I totally stopped my walking and have been a total slug.

    Your blog is rockin'.. love it. Have a great weekend.


  4. Girl between the kids at school, running errands and doing my homework I have been super busy. I haven't really got into a routine as of yet, kinda like a chicken running around with my head chopped off. How are you?
