40 Year Old Utah Mormon Vegan Homeschool Mom with Large Family Trying to Get to a Healthy Weight

I have a large family. I have a large family for a Utah Mormon (not just for a city-dwelling New-York City resident or Hollywood movie star, because their definitino of a large family is not mine). I am vegan. I have been pregnant and breatfeeding for what feels like half of my life. I am 40. I wake up early, not to excercise, but to take my daughter to her early morning homeschool seminary class.

I try hard to eat right. I just barely skim the surface of having a habit of eating breakfast, lunch and dinner on time. I try to eat healthy foods, but it is tough to find time to prepare something healthy when our lives are so busy.

I try to find time to exercise. I just cannot find it. O.k., so I know where it is. It is right there when my husband gets home, gives me the chance to go to the gym, and I hear my preschooler bawling at the top of his lungs about his hunger, my husband says to ignore him, and I make him something to eat, following which my husband leaves and my was-gonna-be-tending-while-I-went-to-the-gym son throws a fit, begging me to let off on the homeschool assignments for the week so that he can play on the wii. The screaming, throwing things and bawling from the torture of the immensity of the assignments is so great that I do not go to the gym. I stay home and my husband gets back and tries go help us through the rough patch. Then I make a vegan dinner for only myself and am too exhausted (and it is too late at night) to go to the gym.

This is just one day in the life of the Utah Mormon Vegan Homeschool Mom with a Large Family who is trying to lose 30 lbs. and thus reach a healthy weight. I tell you, I am sick to death of all the blog posts and youtube videos I find with women who have 2 kids and send them to school during the day, then tell me how they lost all the baby weight in 6 weeks.  am also sick of all the “you need animal protein” lies out there, written by weight-loss gurus who are not vegan!

“Thou shalt not covet” the women who lose baby weight in under a year. Seriously, the toughest commandment out there. Arghhhhh!

I seriously cannot be the only one! I hate feeling alone. I do not expect to find someone just exactly in my situation, but a bunch of groupies close to it would be nice. A support group would help immensely. There have to be vegan homeschool moms out there with large families, and who also large bellies like mine that have not gone away when the baby is a preschooler!

If you are one and have found this post, please comment. I need a support network of women who know what I am going through! Advice about exercise would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Oppose Utah SB 190 of 2017

Please oppose Utah SB 190 of 2017. It is CBE Competency-Based Education. It is pushing more online CBE. It takes taxpayer education dollars from all other subjects in order to give extra money to the STEM programs, grants and employees.

This will hurt P.E., History, Foreign Languages, the Arts and many other subjects of study in schools.

Please read this post to understand more about this. https://lisajacksondesign.wordpress.com/2016/09/16/the-stem-craze-what-it-does-to-our-kids/

Summary & Notes from “Education 2030 Inchion Declaration & Framework for Action,” 1 of 2 posts

Lifelong learning (baby day care from birth, preschool, k-12 and adult lifelong education)

gender equality

ensure all children are in school

global citizenship

Themes (essential for peace, tolerance, human fulfilmnet and sustainable development): 

  • human rights and dignity (dignity means die with dignity, which means euthanization or starvation to death for the elderly)
  • social justice
  • inclusion (this means no religious freedom)
  • protection (by the New World Order, from activists like me who blog like this)
  • cultural diversity
  • linguistic diversity
  • ethnic diversity
  • shared responsibility (worldwide communist-fascist communitarian tyrannical Government)
  • accountability

Take money from first world countries to give to third world countries to implement this world order, improve their indoctrinating schools, etc. (Impementing Our Common Agenda, 14, 15)

Comprehensive national monitoring and evalutation throug data collected, Improve data collection ( Implementing Our Common Agenda, 18)

All children, young people and adults will become responsible global citizens and will be on the right side of change!

“We need every child in school and learning,” Anthony Lake, Executive Director, UNICEF

Values:

  • Peace
  • Justice
  • Human Rights
  • Gender Equality
  • Women’s Empowerment

(Statements of the Heads of the WEF 2015 Convening Agencies)

“…Education can accelerate progress towards the achievement of all of the SDG’s…” (Sustainable Development Goals)

Children need skills necessary to live in a world which is more:

  • secure
  • sustainable
  • intedependent
  • knowledge-based
  • technology-driven

Education will have to take into account “multiple dimensions of human existnce,” in “promoting democracy and human rights and enhancing global citizenship, tolerance and civic engagement, as well as sustainable development (I.A.6).” This means places of worship, homes and group meetings will be monitored, too.

“enabling girls and women, empowering them economically…saves the lives of millins of mothers and children…essential element of efforts t reduce malnutrition.” (I.A.6)

I.A10: “Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women,” and “full development of the human personality and promote mutual understanding, tolerance, friendship and peace” (This cannot happen where the government is not in complete control of homes, families, education. group gatherings, the media and religion).

“Realistic intermediate benchmarks and stepping stones should be set at the national level…”and “…education content, approaches  structures and funding strategies…” (I.A.19)

“Education and training opportunities must be ensured (by) cross-sector approaches traversing education, science and technology, family, employment, industrial and economic development, migration and integration, citizenship, social welfare and public fincance policies…”

G.E.D.: 10 College Credits? Really!? That’s Great!

G.E.D. + CreditScores on G.E.D. [200 possible for each subject test (I think there are 5)]
175-200 means High School Diploma plus up to 10 hrs. of college credit (up to 3 cr. Math, 3 cr. Science, 3 cr. Social Studies and 1 cr. English)

165-174 means High School Diploma plus college readiness
145-164 means High School Diploma
0-144 means you did not pass. You can retake that subject later

Socialist Indoctrination (fascist, communist, communitarianist) in G.E.D. Test

Fascist and Communitarianist Indoctrination In the 2017 Princeton Review G.E.D. Test Prep Book

Why would Princeton Review’s 2017 GED test book contain Fascist and Communitarianist Indoctrination in its sample questions for reading comprehension? It is because they are trying to prepare the student for the actual test, which has this kind of thing in it.
