So I am halfway through my weight loss journey. Starting to lose a little focus, but pushing to move forward.
I am also trying to work on not yelling so much at my kids. It's times like these that I can certainly feel the stress of 4 kids. Sometimes I joke and say, I would be an awesome parent of a single child. But get them all together and it's a madhouse!
Lance and I have "meetings" every few months to see how we are doing as a couple, parents, and family. Our last meeting revealed that we have started to notice we are yelling more. After some brainstorming, I came up with a yell jar. If you yell, your name goes in the jar and you do not get to see a movie TODAY! (it's been one week). If you do something merit worthy, then a person can choose to remove your name from the jar. This gives everyone a chance to be rewarded for good behavior too and it makes us conscious of how we are responding and finding other ways to interact other than yell. I am happy to report we have no names in the jar today. And the noise level in our house is down.
Sometimes it helps to have "meetings". Sadly, there were no donuts or coffee provided :(
