#Mamavation Monday-My Randomness About The 2 Week Challenge and Children

I can hardly believe that another 2 week challenge has come to an end.  This was my second 2 week challenge that I participated in and I feel like I handled it much better than the first one.  The burpees were , of course, hard but I was able to work through the pain and worked myself up to 40 burpees per workout per day.  I managed to stay on track during the 2 week challenge and feel like I really got a boost   in my journey.

The past few days have been crazy for me.  My son graduated from K4 and my daughter has a dance recital coming up in the next couple of weeks, so we have been running here and there trying to complete the year end activities.  My  heart is filled with so many emotions at the end of the year.  I know that as another school year comes to a close, this only means that another August will come and my children will go into a higher grade level, which means in turn that they are growing up.  I really am dealing with a ton of emotion where this is concerned.  I know that I am not the only one that deals with those type of feelings and my heart goes out to everyone that feels that.  Do you ever feel like your kids are just growing up too fast and that time is flying by?

Sorry, I have kind of gotten off onto another subject besides my weight loss goals. However, I really feel that my emotions and feelings are connected to my weight loss.  My mind is heavily weighed by my feelings and emotions and that sometimes affects what I do toward my weight loss.  Hope you all  have a great week this week!

  1. I keep telling my kids to stop eating and sleeping so they can stay young forever...and they look at me like I'm crazy. I understand. Completely.

  2. My daughter is getting ready to graduate PreK so I totally understand. I feel like I'm running around cah-razy most days!

  3. Yes! Oddly enough I think I feed mine too much. They are just shooting up and surprising me daily.

    I think our real lives always tie into our weight loss goals, successes and hardships. We are just human.

    Hope you had a great Mother's Day and will have an amazing week.

  4. Don't tell me these things. I want to keep the snuggles. Love em, kiss em. I do want to stop the diaper thing though... Have a great week

  5. emotions are ALWAYS tied to weight loss and well-being for me. I feel like I blinked and my kids grew up overnight... hard to believe that I have an "almost" teenager... treasure each second. Have an amazing week!

  6. I understand. My kids are still little but it is hard to imagine that my littlest is at the age where my oldest was when she was born. It doesn't seem like it has been two years already. Thinking of it all makes my oldest just seem huge to me! In another year she will be starting kindergarten. I remember a time when that seemed so far away.

  7. When I do my food log I always make sure to write about my feelings. I think weight and food go hand in hand. Once you identify feelings it makes goal achievement easier.
