Just stopping by to say "hi" and see how you are doing. This has been my crazy life lately. I so hope it calms down soon. I am not sure how much more stress I can take. I haven't weighed myself in about 2 weeks. I know I need to get on that scale, but just haven't. I need to get my food under control again. My life just keeps getting more crazy. I thought after the long weekend the stress level would go down. We had my family reunion on Saturday afternoon. it was nice. 165 people and all authentic Italian food. I at too much, but it was so good. Then on Sunday we had a small family birthday party for Paige. Her Great Grandparent were in from out of state and had never been here to celebrate her birthday before, so I had a small party. It was nice. Then on Monday evening we had gone over to the neighbors house. The live behind us. They were celebrating 2 birthdays in there family. My hubby went home to get something and decided to climb the fence instead of walk around. He lost his footing and landed head and shoulder first. He hit his head on some brick masonry that was on the ground. He had a 3+ inch gouge in his head that was split open big. I had to take him to the emergency room. 4 hours later he had 7 staples in his head. He was off work for 2 days and went back this morning. He feels terrible and foolish, but what can you do about it now. We have horrible health insurance so this will be all out of pocket and we have had a lot of unexpected expenses over the last month. We have our first class feild trip on Friday and I am a driver, then I have to go into work for a few hours when we get home to do something, my boss will be out of town. Then I have a meeting on Friday night. I am going to be a class mom with another mom. We are going to work on everything together. So there is a meeting for all the class moms. We are having Paige's school birthday party this weekend at a place called Party Central. It has jumpy things and is a great place the kids love. I know she will have a lot of fun. This is her first kids party.
I am hoping that after the party this weekend things will settle back down a little bit and I can start to focus on myself again. I have completely let myself go. I need to get this turned around. I know I need to find a balance with spark, but I know now I still need to be here. Balance will be the key. 1726 days ago
Good morning, How are things? I will still be sparking, but just with my friends I have made here and 2 teams. I was getting to involved in teams etc again and when I do that other things suffer like actually being healthy. It is funny how being on spark can cause me to be unhealthy, by spending too much time sitting in front of the computer. I will be checking in once a day, but then on to life. I have been really stressed with all of the changes I have going on right now and things that are planned for the next 2 weeks. I am hoping after I get passed all of these things that life can get settled back down and I can work on getting the scale moving again. I have been doing what my old Weight Watchers leader called practicing maintenance. That is what she called it when the scale wasn't moving. I am just glad that it isn't going up. Staying the same is good. 1734 days ago
Hi, Even if you are injuried, you can still keep those good eating habits. You know that 70+% of weight loss is diet alone, so keep the calorie caounter going and you will be moving that scale. 1756 days ago
