Well the holidays are upon us

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Holidays are here and I have to start really thinking about getting the kids gifts done so i can send them LOL... but the other thing that has been the buzz at the gym in classes ...yep you got it weight...I have a anniversary coming up jan 3rd is when Zumba came into my life this past year(2011) It will be a year this coming jan 3rd I have lost 45 pounds to date I was hoping (before i realized how hard it is to lose on my medications) to lose all the weight (70 pounds) before Jan 3rd of 2012 now I might come close wwith another 5 or 10 pounds during the holidays or I might stay the same til after the holidays either way I am ok with where I am at the moment...either way come Jan 3rd 2012 My life has already changed for the better and only starts of next year with a bang :)
So i was planning thanksgiving yesterday with hubby I am making 4 pumkin pies (2 for him to take to work to share and 2 for us at home :) ) It is the only time of year i make these pies thankssgiving nd christmas and I am not going to stop now... the only other pie I am making is is a apple pie but I am only putting crust on the bottom and a crumble instead on the top...less carbs that way ::) and that is usually what i at for breakfast and snack til its gone LOL i usually have to make 2 because my older son and I dont share very well when it comes to mom apple pie lol :) the other thing that only comes in our home on those 2 holidays is cool whip :) (Cosmo is gonna be SOOOOoooo Happy LOL its his favorite! )
then of course turkey mashed potatoes carrots and stuffing with cranberries for the dinner (never understood why we have to have diner and dessert when all i want is dessert ) LOL
It will be just hubby and I and the birds :) (Fids) the kids will skype on both holidays :) which will be nice...really didnt do to much decorating for fall around here but if i have saturday after black friday off i will decorate for the winter holiday...I really dont get excited about the holidays I just go thru them...My holiday has already passed :) It was my new year (halloween) that holiday is MY holiday lol and NO ONE can screw that hokiday time up for me at all :) I started MY new year a few weeks ago andoff to a good start so scale finally went down a few ounce today so I am happy to see that... means my body is in tone mode and will lose weight when it reachs a certain point... I dont plan on gaining weight over the holidays or losing weight but if either happens I wont cry about it :) But i have a feeling i will be losing this holiday season with my strict gym schedule and running around at work (which is retail) I am sure i will be fine this holiday season :)

I have a plan and i plan to stick to it and enjoy the days we eat I will track good or bad like i always do and just go from there .. now just to get shopping lol ugh :D

Do you have a plan or do you wing it?

    Plans are what it is all about. I think you are smart to plan on maintaining over the holidays.

    I'm almost 30 and still go to my inlaws and grandmas for Thanksgiving dinner lol.
I sort of have a plan. I'm going to TRY to eat a decent dinner with only 1 hot roll ( my weakness) and 1 piece of pumpkin piem. Then hopefully I'll be done =). I'm really worried about Christmas. My MIL makes the best desserts ever, but I'm going to be strong. My 1 year on Spark ends on January 1 st =)

Sounds like you have a great plan! You can do it!

Just another day in my life :)

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

I was sitting here this morning at 330 am... andwas realizing as I facebooked thru my friends lives and other people i know but cant call friends.. that most people blog about negative things...then it occurred to me why my friends from my zumba class made this comment when I was up there recently visiting Lirio says in front a few women... could you please keep putting up positive messages every morning .. I read your comments everyday and you always make me smile.. I looked at her with a weird look ( i know she said) No really.. you inspire me.. you make my day more positive.. yiu make me smile or laugh.. you really make me look forward to my day.. and i remember all day what you say so when i am having a bad moment I think Adewyn said LOL

Now i understand what she meant lol...(Duh) I rad thru people comments and I always put a positive spin on there day to take the negitive and add a positive.. itsnt that what we are suppse to do?
I mean I could pos daily how much pain I am in every da from my fibromyalgia or how I cant feel my fet some days when i walk or how i burn my left arm at work because i couldnt feel the 200 degree steam searing my arm... But where would that get me?I live in pain daily.. minute by minute... I take my meds I get up I eat breakfast and I make a choice everyday!!! Everyday! Yes.. I choose to join the world... and make people happy! and show them we can live in pain and be happy I can live in pain and workout and achieve goals.. Does it take me longer to achieve them YES! Do I get frustrated Hell Yes! ut I get every morning anyways and choose to walk (which i couldnt as of 3 and 1/2 years ago today) Do I ever want to be like that again NO! Why Because I have come to far to end up back in bed again for months and not being able to move and then pushing myself to learn how to walk correctly again... I still cant walk up and down stairs correctly but who cares I can walk.... I have days I am stiff and in alot of pain I dont care I have work to do and classes to take THEN i can rest... I have weight to lose I have routines to learn so I can eventually teach Zumba now that I am certified... Yes this takes all my energy but I am worth it! I sit here in pain this morning from my last 3 days of working out and going to work... oh well.. i am gonna hurt anyways I might as hurt from exercise and look good in the process....
I have to remember the little things I accomplish every day... Everyday I am thankful for putting my feet on the ground ad standing upright every day I am glad I can put one foot in front of the other.. everyday I am thankful I can do my house chores again (as much as i hate them) I have days I have to stop.. I dont have a choice... there are days it rains or snows or the weather is changing again or i have done to much and my body says ENOUGH! So i crawl on my bed with the computer and relax with my heat pad and my flexril and calll it a day... and do light house chores or only get the things that absolutely need to be done and if nothing needs to be done I just rest... I stress my husband out I am sure.. he worries enough for the both of us... He has seen the Adewyn that couldnt move the Adewyn that wasnt the person he married the lively energitic person I was.. nw he sees it again and he fears I will be knocked down by whatever diease name they want to put on me... and though I cant say I will never be knocked down again with something medical (becuase I always do at some point) I know that I CAN and I will bounce back .. and I willl get up so I can inspire that one person that thought they couldnt to help another realize they can.. and to tell those doctors to shove it where the sun dont shine...Why Because I can! And that my friends is another day in my life and i am glad to have you all by my side!

    We might as well try our best to be the most positive we can be and like you say, put a positive spin on even the most negative events or happenings. I try to do this too, we might as well smile? hehe...

You are very right though... it always seems easier to blog about negative things - but also i think typing it out helps to rid one's self of the negativity! :) x

    Yeah. I find sometimes I am sliding to the negative, and have to stop myself and realize. I feel pretty darn good for a heart patient, and the bother of everyday life is 5% of the day. The other 95% is a blessing. I enjoy every day, but we post about our troubles, probably looking for support, or commiseration. Then you look back, and go .. Man I am depresssing! lol

I sometimes worry that pushing myself is gonna hurt me, but if you don't go LIVE life, and enjoy it to the utmost, what use is squeezing a few extra years out anyways. Plus, I think it is actually adding years. Tell your husband not to stress. Pushing the limits has more benefits than danger, and makes life more enjoyable. Then we can make positive posts, and share with others what a great thing it is to just wake up in the morning, and be alive, and even better healthy. Healthy people take this for granted, and all of us sometimes lose focus on the good things. The bad things seem so much BIGGER! lol
