Today I was working at Anytime Fitness and everything went smoothly and I had a great day...until I tried to close and set the security alarm. I normally have issues with it...but nothing that a great whack doesn't help! Today was different! It was saying unable to arm in 2 areas instead of the main door which is usually the problem since the quake....fast forward....as I do what I normally do, I accidentally hit the wrong button and hit a fire alarm!! I thought stopped it, but no! As I am outside trying to get the door to work, the security company rings but I don't answer Sooooooo The fire brigade is dispatched and they can't be stopped (called down) once they are. So...2 BIG Fire trucks and the boys showed up, I try to act like the sweet dumb American blonde and explain. Then, I still have the problem of the alarm not setting! So I now had to call the security company who dispatches another security company and they come and try to figure it out and can't....and then...I call the owner and hand the phone over and she all of a sudden says something about a box in the back office....is it open? Yes! Close it. Freaking everything is fine!!! Couldn't believe it!! Seriously. Of course She seemed upset, but how the heck would I know that if I was never told!? I sat and was stressed and felt stupid and embarrassed.
After a couple hours I calmed down, told everyone on Facebook and then thought....why am I so wound up? It was an accident! I did the best I could, they should fix the freaking alarm and maybe mention the box if it doesn't work...I did the best I could with the information I was given. Then I realized that is the weight loss and nutrition work as well. Nobody's perfect. We'll all have a messed up day once in awhile...maybe it's because you had to have emergency surgery, maybe it's because you celebrate a bit too hard, maybe you have a natural disaster happen and most stores are closed....this all happened to me by the way in the last 2 months! But the point is you commit to yourself to do the best you can with what you have and what you know to be true. And YOU FORGIVE yourself with things that are out of your control or were accidents. I tell my clients that all the time...and I believe it...just never thought I would call the fire brigade on a Saturday afternoon in May! :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone and be kind to yourself.

So I think I may have done too much Monday...was nice and sore, and I really loved it...but my body I think is still recovering a bit! I am so impatient! LOL
So..just been focusing on food this week and moving when I can. It's been raining heaps and poor dog hasn't even been walking. We're both itching...while mama recovers, nobody walks Max so he's bored! LOL
Been having lots of headaches and really tired again. I think it's almost like detox since surgery! So...not too much to report on...sorry! :) Have a great weekend!

Plus the meds...which now is only if I have pain...which isn't often! So Full steam ahead...new goals, new goal poster, new determination!!!!
Have a GREAT week everyone!!!

I thought I pulled something a couple days ago and ended up with pain. After a couple days of it, I went back to the doctor hoping I didn't tear anything they did with taking my appendix out...they sent me to the hospital where I stayed from 11:30 AM - 9:00 PM and then was released after blood was shed, needles were inserted, and a CT scan was done...nothing wrong..just muscle strain! :) YEA...so I could finally eat! WHOO HOO! That Subway veggie Delight was Da Bomb! :)
On another Note, If anyone already shops online at Amazon, maybe you could take a little detour and help me out. When you go to my website, it'll take you to online shopping and when you purchase, I get a little bit...and I would really love to go and visit my family back in the states...which will cosy about $5000+ to do...that's why I haven't been home in a very long time. So if you could help, great...even just spreading the word would be fabulous!!! And much appreciated! Thanks so much! Just trying this system out to see how it goes...fingers crossed! :)

So after having my appendix removed Monday night, and coming home Tuesday, I have had to give up my normal perfectionist and controlling ways! It's so hard! My man has been a Superman though and his love for me is amazing and I am grateful. I was a tad bit worried that there was clean laundry all around our livingroom, dishes all over the kitchen counter and the floor was a bit too fluffy looking...we had guests arriving today from the North Island and I like things to be just right...so yesterday I just took a deep breath, grabbed a cup of tea and walked past the chaos and by 10 PM the house was perfect...at least for him...and it was good enough for me! People would know that I wasn't able to do much like wash floors, etc....so I have been proud of myself and have fallen in more love with my man during this process.
Tomorrow is my man's 40th Birthday Party and I may attend for an hour or so...but this sucks! I was the one that was suppose to do everything and I had to give up control for that too! LOL Tonight his birth family met the family that raised him and I missed out on that as well.
I am however a work addict...I can't help it! When you love what you do, it comes out of every pore and you can't shut it off, so in the hospital, and even from bed, my clients text me orders, they text me hurdles and things they need help with and I do whatever I can to help them. My man will get orders together and the clients can pick up. I have made copies, written cards and emailed/text/FB'd them answers and support during their weight loss journey since I can't see them. They don't get an easy out because I lost an appendix! They may not be weighing in...but I'll know when they do and I am still here! I haven't died. My man keeps telling me to turn my brain off...my business is my heart...:)
I do have to share that I had great satisfaction when at least 4 different doctors asked me if I had fish N chips, KFC, or Takeaways when I started feeling pain Sunday! I replied...I had 6 oz of grilled skinless chicken breast, 2 tomatoes, 2 large slices of red onion, a wholemeal tortilla, 1/2 cup refried beans, 1 cucumber, and garlic and lime juice. The look on their faces was priceless!!! Next question: What do you do? "I'm a weight Loss and Nutrition Consultant"....smirk....wink....he he he he
I have never drank, did drugs, or smoked and never had or want kids! It's fun to do this by the way! I just giggle and giggle on the inside!
Okay...I'm rambling...better get back to getting my Sparkpoints in :) Have a great weekend! xoxox
Thank you for all your lovely messages and sparkgoodies! I am itching to get back to normal!!!
