Blah...

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Today I am Blah... I am actually edging towards Grrrr.... No one specific reason - just an accumulation of too much on my plate I think. MIL is now in the nursing home but until the paperwork gets straightened out we don't who or how it's getting paid for. Can't be me - I'm so broke I can't pay attention! Do you think anyone can just say "thanks" without a qualifying "but did you do.. get... be... ask..." NOPE! She doesn't help - she tells everyone that she has no family here - they are all back east. I am not family? I guess I'm just Cinderella huh? It's frustrating. Plus it was so windy yesterday we couldn't go walk as planned. Oh well, I guess today will be Blah and I will start fresh tomorrow...

    Perhaps do yourself a favour and throw on some dancing tunes and move yourself silly for a little while. You'll compensate for that walk and make yourself feel happier. There's nothing like goofing around to make you forget how irritated you are with the world. I truly hope things get easier for you!

Surprise!

Monday, January 28, 2013

I didn't weigh myself last weekso this morning I got on the scale not expecting much movement - my back is bothering me so I didn't get in a lot of fitness last week. But SURPRISE! I am down 3 more pounds. So in 3 weeks I have lost 5 pounds. Would I like it to be more? Sure - but I know that I am making healthy lifestyle changes tht will help me lose the weight and keep it off. I will just keep up with the turtle attitude - slow and steady wins the race! It's a happy monday so far! emoticon

    Woo hoo! Good job. I'll be weighing in at the gym in a couple hours and I'm nervous. I hope that I have similar success to yours.

Three pounds, five total, in three weeks is awesome! Keep up the good work.

Under the Influence... Of Sparkpeople

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I was talking with a friend today about how much those around you influence you - your mood, your attitude, your choices. She asked me what I had been doing differently because she noticed my attitude is better, my moods more positive. I told her that when I am upset, discouraged, angry, anxious, etc. I turn to Sparkpeople for a few minutes and check out the blogs, pages, articles, huddles or whatever catches my eye. There is so much encouragement going on on here that you can't help but pick up that *Spark* That helps carry me along. Encouraging someone else who is having a bad day is a great way to put my own in perspective. Or maybe commiserating with someone who is having the same kind of day makes me feel I am not the only one. Whatever the case. It is helping! emoticon

    I understand what you are saying. I have just joined this week and I love it. I find myself on here a lot looking at all the good information and the recipes look fanstatic. Excited to "meet" all these people that are working toward a goal.

It is nice to know that I am not the only one with struggles and that there is help when I hit a wall.
