Catch Up Time!

Hello everyone! Yes I realize I have not posted in a very long time! I apologize! My life has been really crazy lately. I will fill you in!

So my mom had surgery two weeks ago. Standard procedures really. Her 45 min surgery turned into 4 hours. She spent the night in the hospital and went home the next day. I actually went home that weekend to help her out but unfortunately she took a turn for the worse and started getting sick. My stepdad took her to the ER and I followed. She had infections from her surgery and she needed to have yet another surgery to repair everything. It was an awful few days. I cannot think of a worse feeling like sending my mom off to surgery and seeing her in ICU. Literally there are no words... makes me emotional just to think about it. Now my mommy is back at home and starting to feel better. Its very hard to see the strongest person I know sick and weak. But she is getting back to her princess status! Yes my mom is a princess!

But moving on to another subject. While I was back and forth from Memphis to Nashville and not sleeping much and being busy I did not have time to cook meals or anything. I did not eat too well last week... I am not happy with it. I ate fast food and let me tell you I literally do NOT like it anymore. I use to love eating fast food but now it is gross to me. I talked with my mom about how I wasn't doing well on my diet. She was telling me if this is something I want I can't let myself relapse into the old ways. I completely agree with her and I realized that I do not think I could ever eat like I use to. I mean I'd rather just starve then eat greasy fast food. Haha! I guess last week was kind of like a test. I know that I need to continue to move forward with my diet and work harder.

Speaking of diet has been a real struggle lately. I work out and eat right but wouldn't lose weight. It can get really frustrating, I felt as if my hardwork was not paying off. It's like I hit 55 pounds and well i'm done. But I won't let this plateau keep me from reaching my goals, which I definitely let it get to me and maybe that is why I wasn't doing well on my diet last week. I talked to a few people and they say sometimes when you start losing weight after awhile you have to start working a little bit harder than you started because your body is use to the same routine. Now I do not know if this is true...I am not a doctor or nutritionist! Haha!

I hope everyone has a healthy and happy week!


  1. Hi Kelly! I took a nutrition class this summer and that's very true! You just need to "surprise or shock: your body with something new--like cutting out meat, carbs, etc. or doing a completely different type of workout..if you usually do strength training, work on more cardio or add a little something extra to your regular exercise routine that is more strenuous. I am so proud of you! Keep it up!

    1. Thanks Caitlin!!! Thats great advice!! Hope you are enjoying life in Seattle!!!

  2. Kelly I am so proud of you. You know I have been where you are and it can be frustrating. Know it is normal to hit plateaus on your journey. Make sure you are getting enough fruits and vegtables in. Sometimes we cut back on calories and this can do more harm than good. Interval training might help too. You most likely didn't get your water down as much when you were looking after your Mom. It will come!! Stay with it. It wil be so worth it!! Your body is getting healthier and stronger that is why the fast food tastes bad!! I am here cheering you on!!
