Mommy Confessions: The Big Scary World

I don't mean for this post to be a downer but given the tragedy that happened over Memorial Day weekend I just had to write something down.  The incident that happened at Isla Vista reminded me of Sandyhook Elementary and I felt like crying for all the victims who lost their lives, for their families and friends who lost someone precious. Why do people take their rage out on the innocent?

It's a scary world out there and I hope nothing like what happened over the holidays ever happens to my daughter or anyone else.  I can't imagine the grief the parents are going through.  I don't know how I could ever move on if anything like that happened to Jellybean.  I want my children to live good, long lives!

I believe every person is someone else's miracle.  If everyone believed that, maybe there would be a shot at world peace.  Maybe?  What do you think?

May Weigh-in

My weigh-in came in at 153.6 lbs, which is a 3 lbs reduction from last month. Yay!  

What worked:

Not over eating. I'm not portioning out my meals but I am being more conscious about not eating beyond feeling full. 

Limiting junk or fatty foods. I've cut back on cookies and pizza. 

Drinking more water. I actually am cheating on this a little because I'm actually drinking larger quantities of watered down coffee rather than straight up water. 

What didn't work:

The 30-day abs and squat challenge is failing me. I'm not disciplined enough to actually do the workouts as planned every day. I skip doing them for a few days then catch up on all the missed workouts at once.  This is defeating the purpose of a 30-Day challenge. 

Things to do differently in May:

Finish up the 30-Day Challenge but have it be complimentary to my regular Jung Dayeon and Pilates workouts.

Don't let cookie eating get out of control. 

Do good quality workouts every day. Quality over quantity!
