Starting Weight: 237
Last Week: 220.6
This Week: 220.6
Weekly Loss: 0
Total Loss: –16.4

Not a gain or a loss.  I'm ok with that.  As much as I want to see the numbers go down I also don't mind them staying where they're at, just please don't go up.  I've done ok food wise this past week but I was only able to get two workouts in, 2 walks.  Summer time has kind of arrived here in the PNW and I love a good cold beer (or two) in the evening.  I've recently found Shock.Top's Lemon.Shandy and I love it!  I have to be careful though because they go down super easy and are 126 calories a bottle!

I must share, I feel like a complete flake lately in more ways than one.  It's not intentional and not the person that I am at all.  I hate it!  It's great to have this blog and to put my goals out there but on the other hand it also really sucks!  I wanted to do at least one 5k a month, that hasn't happened but yet my sidebar stares at me.  I want to do the Game On "diet", bought the book, signed up for one session but had to hold off and am still a part of the facebook group.  I don't want to remove myself from it because I really want to try it out, however it's not working with my lifestyle right now.  In my last blog post I wrote about how I am going to do the 6 week biggest loser contest.  Well, I'm sure you've guessed it but I have backed out of that now too.  I was and still am all excited about it but reality has set in and I had to say no.  Jim will be home next week and Shark week will arrive.  We all know how that goes.  Then right after Jim leaves my mom, the boys and I are embarking on a cross-country adventure.  We're headed to my hometown in Nebraska for a long visit.  I am so freaking excited for the visit (the 3 day (6 total) drive with the boys, not so much) that I can hardly stand it!  But I know that we'll have to eat out quite a bit and activity is going to be slim to none.  So again, I didn't want to set myself up for failure.  Then there is the blog, all three of them to be exact.  I'm so far behind on the boys' blog that it makes me want to cry!  I love having a blog, it's my one place where I can document my/our lives, vent (like now), or whatever but sometimes it can be overwhelming! 

I constantly feel like there are not enough hours in a day.  Ryan still takes a nap but Zack doesn't.  I used to blog when both boys napped but that hasn't happened for quite some time.  I feel like when Ryan goes down that that's my time to get what I need to get done, house work, laundry, blogging, facebooking, whatever.  But then I feel guilty because Zack wants and deserves attention.  I can put a movie on and he's content for a while but that's not what I like to do all the time.  So the only time I have to do all of those things is after they go to bed which sometimes isn't until 9pm and by then I'm beat!  I don't feel like cleaning, exercising, doing laundry (I'm lucky if I'll fold it), I don't even feel like blogging because my mind feels like mush!  I have great sympathy for {some} single moms, I know what it's like and sometimes it just sucks!  So come bedtime for the boys all I want to do is sit and veg.  That's what I usually end up doing...sitting on my ass watching tv while being on face.book, google.reader, pintere.st or wherever.  I haven't even really sat down and wrote an email in over a month. 

Granted my brother's accident really set me back and I still feel like I'm playing catch up but will I ever feel like things are back to normal?  I used to have such a grip on things.  Last summer Jim was working the same job but I didn't feel this out of sorts.  I completed the C2.5k with no problems really and was able to lose weight.  Why not now?!

Ok, so I'm done venting for now.  I'm off to burn some much needed calories at Z.umba.  I promise I'll catch you all up on my 24.day challenge really soon!!!
