Week was great!

This last week was great, I got through most of my challanges. I only worked out 2 times though.  I will not let that bother me. This is week 3 and I am excited! My energy is so high, it amazes me!
Jenna brought over all my groceries today....WOW! I have so much goodness in my cupboards and fridge and freezer it is not even funny.  I receive my lunches and snacks tomorrow that she is preparing me and I am ready for another fantastic week.
Week 2 was was a hard start.  I had 2 cocktails on Monday with friends and I spent from 3am to 5 am awake and not feeling well, I thought that maybe it was a fluke.  Last night I had 2 glasses of white wine and the same thing happened, except that I woke up in a sweat.  Funny, I was so used to having a glass of wine with dinner at night or a glass to "relax" when I get home.  That never happened before. 
So, alcohol is poison to me.
Now on to this weeks challanges....
-work out 4 times this week (2 days being resistant training)!
I am very excited to see what is in store for me this week.

This is my journey.
I am not going to tell you all the stories of my yoyo dieting, any eating disorders, ect.  I want to share my journey so that I can watch my success and maybe help other mothers, wives, and business owners along.
I have 3 daughters, 2 businesses(of my own) my husband has a business....time and energy is at it's low.  I have beautiful daughters that are very talented. My eldest daughter suffers from separation anxiety and anorexia. we have her eating disorder under control, but food and how we speak of food is very important in our house.  My husband is fantastic, not perfect, but the love of my life. He is Italian and loves to cook Italian foood.......yummmmy! That is why I have gained 25 pounds in the last 6 years. Yuck!
I am 34 years old in August, I weigh 145ish pounds and I am 5'3 inches. I have been ready for  a change for so long, but now this is it!
I have met the most wonderful women and she has changed her physique in 18months.....really she had done it in 10months. She is a bikini model and she has the most wonderful story and personality.  Jenna is her name and she has just started this wonderful business of being a Life Style coach.  Yes, I know, only the stars have these, or the rich, or the single. She has made it incredibly affordable and she has done it all in baby steps for me.  Jenna will be shopping for me, and preparing my meals.  We came up with terms that help the kids and myself eat, and we get so excited to eat "CLEAN FOODS". 
Jenna gives me short-term goals as well as long term goals. She is also helping me put together a vision board(she is doing one each with my girls next week).  The first week was writing a journal on all the food and drinks I was consuming.....that was so hard to see at the end of my week. I am under calories....who would have thought!  We sat down and talked about long term goals, i want to share one with the world...I want to go on a weekend get-away with my husband the weekend of October 28th! That is 17 weeks away and I am every week i will write out my goals, my hurdles and my excitement.  I want to be a healthy mother, a sexy wife and a happier employer!

Week 2:
Goals for the 3 meals and 2 snacks a day.
exercise 4 days this week!
drink 2 glasses of water upon rising in the am
stretch for 5 minutes!
continue to journal
.....stay tuned!
