Friend Making Mondays- Halloween!

Yay, It's Halloween! My favorite Holiday ever, even thought now days we do it on a smaller scale I still love it. We took the kiddo Trick or treating Saturday and we are also going today. Aiden was a little shy at first but then he realized he got goodies he was all for it.

I'm also planning a Scary movie night with the big kiddo, would have love to go see "Paranomal Activity 3" but we are saving money so we are just going to watch "Scream 4" and enjoy a Taco dip.

Today I'm joining again Dear Kenley's Friend Makin' Mondays:

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules.

Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: What do you do when trying to reclaim your healthy lifestyle after a few emotional, unhealthy weeks?

This is something that I struggle so much. We have so many outside issues that sometimes prevent me from doing well: trips to NYC, family coming over, budget, stress, etc. Granted I could do better choices but I feel weird going to visit family in NYC and asking them to go food shopping for me. And lets face it, baked white cheddar cheetos taste much better after a panic attack than any carrots can- just saying.

What I've learned is just to move forward, ignore the pass and just go forward for a better day. I cannot change what I did last week but I can certainly do better today.

Back in March I went down almost 15lbs and then gave up and gained all back up. I cannot focus on what weight I would be today if I would have kept going, I can only start over and say today I'm going to do better.

Last week I started exercising again, and even though my left arm has been a source of serious pain I'm not going to use it as an excuse. Today my schedule is mega hectic so after I gave lunch to the little guy I asked my oldest to watch him for 20 minutes, locked myself in the bedroom and did the Leslie Samsom 20min Cardio Slim down. Not earth shattering but I did get some exercise in and now there is no excuse.

I'm trying my best to plan ahead what I'm going to eat too, and I gave up juice and drinking more water (I'm still drinking soda, but one step at time).

I am really looking forward to read what others do because I can use more tips.

Hope you have a fantastic Halloween!!!

Over & out

Good for you for getting your exercise in when you can! It all adds up. This whole weight loss and exercise thing is a constant focus. We just have to make sure it doesn't rule us.

Exercise is the first step! Then making small changes to the way you eat - first you give up juice, then pop, etc.

Good luck!
