reconnecting...

Monday, June 21, 2010

So I haven't been on for a while...lots and lots of stuff...baggage.
Yes, my weight has suffered, my health etc, etc. But I am back
and ready to get back on my horse and work for myself. Purchased and
started using Zumba...really like it. Doesn't feel like excersize.
Also, watching my caloric intake.
Hope I can stick with it this time, problems don't leave so just have to learn
how to deal I guess.

CARAMBA!

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Well, here's to another end of the month rat race. I have not only NOT posted or even looked at sparkpages, I have not even gone to the gym since school was out. Too much to do, to many people needing me, no time for myself. I am sooooo looking forward to school starting agian! Summer has been hot here and really taking a toll on my energy levels. Not to mention the quantity of deaths of friends and others that seems to take a toll on my emotional levels too. But, another month is gone and one just to begin tomorrow. Hopefully it will bring some peace and calm.

    I ma sorry about all the ups and downs in your life right now. Resolve to do small things for yourself instead of taking the all or nothing stance. Small incremental changes are much more manageable and will more readily develop into good habits.
Good luck!

Thank you to JHOLLAND64 for the spark goodie! And thank you too, to FLUBBERS for the pep talk. Yes, it's hard to be a mom and to be a good one is harder. My kids are big now and I thought, foolishly, that it would get easier and that they would help out. Well, uh, NO! So sometimes I'm just at the end of my rope. The reality of life is that we moms have to be "everything" to "everyone" around us more often than we want to. You kind of loose yourself in that process. And some days are better than others, but some days are worse. When that happens, nothing seems to work. But it is so helpful to talk to others about it. I should be doing some type of excersize right now, but talking to others is so much better!
Thank you to all.~

  


Anyone else at the boiling point?

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Ok, so the challenge today is to post a blog. Here I go. Since school ended, so did my life.
Not only am I working more hours at my job, but I am also running all over town trying to keep my kids in their various activities, interests, hobbies etc. Not to mention that I'm also keeping my husband's business afloat! No time to get to the gym, no time to eat right, no personal life, just rush, rush, rush...."Mom! Where's my X and O and everything else?" Meals, cleaning, no help, no down time!!! As I said on the message board, I'm about ready to run down the street, with or without shoes on, screaming and crying and just never come back! I've got a teenager taking a major test on Saturday, two graduation parties to attend and help at, 3 long days of work, to which I must take my 2 younger kids who are always bored there, etc. etc. No one to help or back me up, just because they all have lives too.
So, today....woke up cranky again, and what do I do? Already taking all the supplements I can to keep myself as balanced as possible.

Whew! Got that off my chest. Well, I don't know where to go from here. I'm a pretty rational person, and will not let myself loose it, but the desire is there constantly, even in my dreams! lol

    I don't know what you are going through, but I have seen so many others go through it. (I have no children yet). I call it classic mother syndrome. You must find a way to make some time for yourself. I know it is hard, but it's only fair to you and to your children. Kids can tell when their mother is stressed out.
I know it can be hard, but can you steal a few minutes to yourself while your kids are doing their various activities, like go for a walk or even go watch a movie by yourself. My sister walks around the soccer, baseball, whatever field they are at, (her children are all very active in sports) and my other sister bought a portable dvd player and would watch movies while her daughter was in gymnastics, (there is no place to walk around there.) Sending well wishes your way!
