Mamavation Monday

Watch Lives Change

Last week I was in such a better frame of mind after reading all the mamavation posts and watching the show Monday night. Realizing that you are not alone and it was my mind playing tricks on me was comforting. Not that I take comfort in other's struggles, but you know what I mean. Now with that said, I wasn't the best I could be last week but I can't tell you how much being back to "myself" felt. I had a sinus/sore throat thing going on all week, and for some reason I was exhausted every day.
Plus, it wouldn't be a normal week around here without some family (and by that, I mean "in-law family") drama. My stepson and his girlfriend are having issues, it is very hard to stay out of it and give advice at the same time. But they have a baby now, and I'm just trying to think what is best for my grandson. I'm so not good at that kind of shit, I am a very emotional person and take it all on as if it is my problem. (Note to self: need to STOP doing that!)

But even with all of that, I lost 1.4lbs. So I am just grateful for that considering I went to Cheryl's house(of Sat night for a Thirty One Gifts party. I had one drink and 2 small pieces of pizza.
I want to give a special shout out this week to Angela (@angelasue79 and Fitting into Thirty)
for just being an awesome sista and friend to me. Love ya , girl!!
See everyone tonight at the Mamavation show, Dr Renna is going to give a nutritional lesson.

It's off to the grocery store today to stock up on fruits, veggies and healthy snacks for me.

Congrats on your loss! Glad you are feeling better and definitely try to not let everyone else's problem be so much of yours. That being said I know what you mean it is difficult at times not at least worrying about it, and trying to not take on everyone else's issues. Keep trying to think about yourself you cant take care of others if you dont take care of yourself

Keep up the good work girl! You aren't the only one dealing with inlaw drama either. Keep your chin up you'll get through it with no problem.
