Better blogger

I know I say it all the time but I need to become a better blogger! I am still here, trying to getting into my blogging groove but life gets the best of me. The kids n I are enjoying the summer, although I must admit I am just counting the seconds until our disney cruise in November!! Not that I want to wish my life away or anything. I am usually a big fan of the summertime but I think it is not the same since I moved to Florida. Doing things alone with my 3 kids is a lot harder then when I was in NY in the summers and had all my family and friends there to help me. Anyway enough of my I miss NY rant!

Crystal Prek graduation

My lil mushala graduated from pre k yesterday. I know I tend to get a bit more emotional then neccesary about these types of events but I cant help it. She will be 5 next month and starting kg in the fall and Im just not ready! I held it together pretty well during graduation until they sang twinkle twinkle which is the song I always sang to her as a baby..n I just about LOST my mind!! The tears would not stop flowing. It made me realize how fast the time really does fly! Day to day we might feel stressed n overwhelmed but before we know it our children are embarking on more and more milestones. It made me realize the coldhard fact that we really are done having babies..n that no matter what I do I cant stop my kids from aging. Time needs to slow down!!

My lil man John is having surgery today! Having tubes put in and adnoids out. I know I havent written in a while but I figured I would jump on here to try to write out my feelings because Im in a slight panic. One part of me is telling me that we have exhausted any other option and we have no other choice. He is speech delayed and has hearing loss due to fluid and blockage in his ear. But, another part of me thinks hes too young and is scared that its the wrong decision. Being a mom and being responsible for someone else's life is TOTALLY scary. Sure every day decisions such as meals, clothes , and activities all seem like second nature to me now, but these serious health decisions are always a struggle! How do I know the right choice? How do you know the right answer? I guess the answer is you dont! You can only do what you think is best and Im praying I made the right choice!

My battle against the scale!!

I hate the scale right now!! I have been fasting ( no meat or dairy) for a week now. I also decided to give up junk food to go along with my fast so it could be a religious cleanse and a healthier lifestyle all at the same time. I have not had a chance to really excercise this week but I have been super busy running around. I have not cheated on my diet at all this week except for having a dew sips of butterbeer at universal and one bag of chis there as well..( I couldnt help it I was starved and theme parks have limited snacks for vegans. I was NOT going to cheat on my fast so I had to improvise) Anyway about 3 days in I was 2 lbs down, so I was SUPER excited! My total weight loss goal is 24lbs so that was a nice start. Well , 1 week in today I did my official weigh in assuming I would be about 3lbs down in total. I gained one of those 2lbs back. So I am only down 1lb total...( WEll about 1.5lbs total) So how did I manage to gain back almost a lb when Im not eating anything?? When I was younger I would lose it sooo fast! BOO too getting old, boo to the scale!! I guess I need to add something to this routine to get those lbs moving in the other direction...

40 days... how long is that again?

Today has started the lent season for us Greek Orthodox's. We do not get a choice to gain or give something up. We have a pretty strict lent process although it is not nearly as strict as those that fast all day for other holidays so I should stop complaining..lol We need to give up meat and dairy for 40 days. While I will admit I might miss the occasionally turkey burger or chicken cutlet the meat is not my big issue. As most of you know dairy is the main staple in my diet. So how do I go 40 days with out it? I switched to Almond milk which is bareable enough ( although I miss my milk already) and Im sure by day 10 I will be dreaming of cheese but it is nothing compared to the sacrifices that people make everyday. So also on my quest of veganism for 40 days I have also decided to finally kick start this diet..because it would be way too easy to say I could just eat a bag of chips for dinner right =p!!! So I'm hoping that by the end of these 40 days I will have a lighter belly and a happier heart knowing that I can stick with it this year!! Life is way to short to NOT be healthy....so wish me luck =)
