I got this-I think.....

Good afternoon blog world.  I am officialy one and half months into my Weight Watchers journey and 24 days into my fitness challenge. I have had one bad week and still managed to drop almost 2 pounds. What I am having so much trouble with is what we all struggle with; keeping it all together. The house, the groceries, the cooking, the working out, the laundry, the hubby and the mothering are wearing me out. On Sunday I got up at 8:30 and was in the kitchen until 1:00 that afternoon trying to prep for this week. I need this to get easier. I need to feel like I am in control and right now I don't feel that way. I desperately want to make sure my children have healthy food and snacks on the table every night. I don't want my kiddo to exist on a diet of Mac and Cheese, but some nights I just want to scramble some egg whites and eat some toast, that's it. In fact, I could do that almost every single night and not be unsatisfied. However, the hubby depends on me to fix his lunch-this is something I don't mind doing but it puts a lot of pressure on me to come up with ideas for him too. I don't usually bring my lunch because I can get a salad here at school. I am just feeling very defeated because I haven't hit the 5% mark at my meetings yet.


  1. Tell your hubs to get his own lunch :) I had to prioritize and taking care of the kid came before the hubs. Oliver is in charge of his breakfast and lunch and usually I make dinner, but if I'm busy or stressed than we just fend for ourselves. I even make the meal plan but Oliver does the grocery shopping just to take some of the stress off of me. It does get easier, hang in there!

  2. First off all it is not a race! You will get there! Don't put more pressure on yourself because you haven't hit a certain goal yet.

    I don't have much advice for the other stuff cause I am home all day and my son is 18 so I have way too much time on my hands. But I have heard that sitting down and writing out a plan helps a lot!

    Good luck!

  3. You are doing it! Try not to stress... kids have existed on much worse :)

    And ask your hubs to help!!!
