Doing a little happy dance

I have had the most amazing 2 weeks. My knee took a while to heal and I was getting frustrated. I was still losing weight, but my heart wanted to be at the gym. I was  taking it easy and only walking. Walking  about 1-2 miles a every other day.  I started the gym today and I also weighed myself today.. 300lb BABY!!!!!!!!!! I have lost a total on 67lbs since Aug '10. I wanted to be under 300 by this Thursdays which is my 6wek check-up and It looks like I might be there. This last week has been one of clarity. I see things threw different eyes. I'm starting to see people for who they are, some good and some not so good. I'm seeing the snarky, caddy, childish behavior of people also. Its not something thing that I will be reacting to anymore. Kinda like when you ignore a 3y/o poor behavior, sad really. I'm a grown ass woman and with Baseball, Kirate, dance and gymnastics all coming up with the kids, I don't have any extra time for drama. I was talking to my husband tonite and I was telling I'm how I can tell certain people will be throwing my surgery in my face. The funny thing is, I wasn't always FAT.  Up until my 20's i was thin. After my second and third child is when I put the weight on. I was a size 10. So remember when You look at me, you may have only known me as fat, but deep down, i have been thin all along.  This is going to be such a GREAT year!!

The stomach flu has hit this home hard

This seems to be a week from hell. I woke up a couple days ago and could barely walk or put any pressure on my left knee. I iced and heated it, still so painful. So I went into the ER. After tons of X-rays and ultrasounds, turns out I sprain/strained my knee. I'm "supposed" to be in a knee brace from my thigh to my ankle. So Im trying to heal and go to bed early last night only to wake up to a bed full of puke. My poor daughter got so sick :( I hobble around and clean her and the bed up, just get her back to sleep when Mateo (our 6y/o) comes in and says he threw up in his bed.. OHH Holy night!!!!!  So I hobble to his room, clean him up and his bed. By then its almost time to get Christain (our 10 y/) to school. We come home, sleep and wake up to a phone call to come get Christain, he's sick....  I haven't had much protein in the last couple days, and Im lacking on my water intake ... I am down to 308lbs, Im trying really hard to be @ or below 300 for my 6week check-up in 2 weeks. I can't excerise since my knee is jacked up, but if I don't make it , it won't be all that depressing. So I just thought I would give everyone a tiny update,  and I know I said I would blog more and Im trying, this just hasn't been my week :)
