Mamavation Monday

Watch Lives Change
All I am going to say is "UGH" , what a stressful week it was for me.......
First I want to congratulate Lisa and Katie on becoming the "Mamavation Moms", and of course BIG hugs to Trayce , Monica and Trish. (heard it was super close) I was so glad I could be at the Twitter party on Thursday night. Hey, I actually won something too... Dr. Renna's Nutritional Book for Children .
Like I said above, this week was not a good one for me at all. I don't handle stress very well at all. You would think by now I would , considering I have soo much of it. This week had several different family issues come up , I had the PTO Family Dance I was doing stuff for all week (it always winds up happening that I am the only one taking care of all the details for these events) Then of course the "mother" of all stresses............ my laptop decided to crash when I woke up Wednesday morning. Did nothing different Tuesday night, just woke up Wednesday morning to log on and do my regular routine and NOTHIN'. Long story-short, Dell had to send a new hard drive which didn't arrive until late Friday afternoon. So I didn't get my laptop back until Saturday. Even though I snuck in on my teenagers pc during the day while he was at school, it wasn't the same at all. I felt so "out of the loop".
So, between the stress, not getting alot of sleep, exhausting myself physically and mentally this week (not to mention a couple days of a little too much wine) I didn't even bother weighing myself this morning. I think it will upset me even more then I already am with myself. I feel so embarrassed, I had such anxiety when I saw Leah's tweet yesterday saying "looking forward to your Mamavation Monday post"
Sorry Sistas, getting my ass back in gear is my goal for this week ( I know I said that last week too, but I know I have to )
See you all at the Mamavation MomTv show tonight.
Thanks

Some weeks are harder than others, sometimes it is a month...you can do this..reach out for the support you need...we are here for you!

Stress is hard for me too...I am learning to exercise during stress times instead of eat and it is helping!! {{HUGS}}

Katie @ Frugal Femina said...

I knew you won something, but i couldn't remember what. I think that book would be great!

No need to be embarrassed with us. We understand that there are good weeks and bad weeks, and we love ya anyway. :-) Here's to a brand new week!

Heather @ Not a DIY Life said...

I don't deal well with stress either. I'm the same as Trish, learning to exercise instead of reaching for food.

The great thing is that THIS IS A NEW WEEK!! You can do it!!

Lisa Mom of 2 Boys said...

Girl, we all have weeks like that...that is what makes us human. Dust yourself off and get back up. ((((HUGS))))

Jennifer said...

Believe in yourself, we believe in you no matter what! Fresh start a better you! You can do it!! Looking forward to next weeks post :P

MMM said...

Girl, it happens to the best of us! Dust your self off, and get back to it. You will feel so much better. Even if you do a little exercise during those stressful times, I have found that it helps curb the stress. So, don;t give up!
Much love, and hugs!

That is what we are all here for...to cheer you along on good weeks and not so good weeks. You can do this!

bookieboo said...

We all have weeks like that. Just remember to NOT beat yourself up about and just get up and keep going. We all love and support you! XXOO

Get Real Girl said...

Don't beat yourself up and it isn't just about the number on the scale. It is a new week and you can do it. Stress makes it so hard to stick to a workout and eating healthy routine. We are here for you!!!
p.s. I had a crappy week, too. :-)

We all have bad weeks girl. I've found that forcing myself to exercise really helps me handle stress better. Now you can do one of those Dr. Oz "you turns" and get back on track.

Don't apologize, accountability is good but life happens. If this is a pattern every week then I'll give you crap for it, but for right now I wish I could give you a hug and share an apple with you. Make this week better by getting back to your goals. Don't use this week as an excuse to avoid good habits.

Rachel said...

We all have weeks like this, the key is to not let the pattern continue. New week, brush it off and start again!

Colleen said...

ah I am sure you will be right back in it this week!

Mandy said...

You should NEVER have anxiety posting with us! I think of it like this: do you have one of those friends - a really close, old friend - that you may not talk to often, but when you do, you all pick up right where you left off? Well, I am that person, and I think most of us at Mamavation are too. We understand if you take a break (forced b/c of a stupid laptop crash, or just for your sanity) and will give you big hugs when you come back. NO worries. Now, have a great week, Tina!

Heidi said...

Everyone does have days/weeks/months like that! Hang in there girl!

Jessica said...

Tina! You're okay! Success is remaining motivated even when things seem to head for the sewer! This week will be better for you; I can just feel it! I look forward to reading all about it next week! :)
