CoHP Chamber Seven: The Mirror of Erised

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

This challenge is to blog on our deepest desire.

Lately I've been so family oriented. I don't have any in the line of family where I live. I do have the in-laws though.

I'd love to be part of a large family. To have siblings with a background of fun memories. I've created storylines of having a large family, but just fictional stories written in diary form.

I do have a brother and sister, but we weren't raised together and not close now. The more people I lose the more I want the safety of a large family.

But, since that is impossible I guess the next best desire would be to be safe and healthy.

It looks like Hurricane Irene will miss the Florida coast, so that desire is met, for now.

    I come from a family of 9 kids (only 8 grew up) and we are all so different. So many of my siblings do not accept the others as individuals, only if we do and think what they want us to and if we break from that, we become a pariah... I can't remember the number of times I have been told that I "shouldn't think that way" or "shouldn't feel that way" I am constantly told I am wrong. I was told what kind of education I should pursue, what kind of career, that I should not think of working once married, and I shouldn't get a divorce. My thoughts and feeling were totally pushed aside as of no consequence.

No, I would not wish a large family on anyone, especially one like the one I came from....

    That's true. I have a lot of sisters in Spark.

    You may not have a large family. But you DO have a large circle of friends!

    my dad was one of 14...and him and his twin got adopted out...i think it was too big a family:P i have 2 brothers no sisters. my big brother is a few provinces away and i havent seen him since june 08. we still talk once every 6 months or so and have occasional contact through facebook but i don't think it will ever be the way it used to and that sucks:( my little brother is quite aloof and has his own life but i still see him when we have family birthday celebrations and holidays but i know how you feel about a family but a distant one :( and good thing about the hurricane i bet:P

CoHP: My progress

Monday, August 22, 2011

We visited Hogsmeade this week, each day was a different task.

I did a little better with my exercise last week, used my treadmill, relaxed with friends playing cards, I didn't make a new recipe but we did have the General Tsa (sp) chicken and rice. Idrank as much water as I can, but I never make the 8 glasses.

I lost a couple pounds since Wed wigh in. Cardio challenges have helped. I'm trying to get the 5 freggies in, but seems I only do that when I have a challenge. I do have at least one freggie a day though!


CoHP: How's about today?

Friday, August 12, 2011

We ate at Cracker Barrel. I had grilled chicken tenders and their hashbrown casserole and half a biscuit. I felt that wasn't as bad as it could have been.

I feel fat though and even put on a pair of my 'fat' pants and....they almost fit.

    It happens. Granted I haven't read your other blog posts, but everyone (including me.....today, in fact) gets discouraged. Know that if you keep going, even through discouragement and disappointment, you will be that much closer to building a better, healthier you!

CoHP: How am I doing Thurs.

Thursday, August 11, 2011

I did strength and cardio today but not my full out routine I usually do.

It poured down rain today, so just as well I don't do anything outside. lol

I feel this blogging won't be much as I don't really feel any different. Getting in what I need for the challenges.
