    Sounds like memopause to me. I started in my early 40s and you are describing it to a tee. If you are into vitamins and alternative medicine then go and check out some of the different things at the Health food store or vitamin isle to help your symptoms. If not then go to your doctor, he will give you some perscriptions that will help a lot!!!!
Hope you feel more yourself soon!!!!

Must have it in writing..

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Today I am writing a list of things that I want to try to accomplish this week...

1. I will commit to being happy ( put a smile on my face)

2. I will not let anybody or anything bother me

3. I will not please anyone except me ( learn to be selfish)

4. Organize one day at a time

5 Forget past mistakes live today like there is no tomorrow

6. Make a routine and stick to it no excuses.

7. Find once a week some me time..

This list I am going to for fill because I am learning and creating a New ME I am sure there is more I will add to the list but for now its good..

Saturday, May 15, 2010

I start off to a good way in my food tracking and exercising everyday..then one day I do not fell like doing this or that,,I feel like the energy has been sucked out of me..alway tired draging around...been slipping up fro the past two weeks already gained 2 pounds..feeling kinda depress and all that for no reason at all...still been logging in..I want to so much get that motivation back but I can"t... maybe it's stress from work and at home half two boys one with adhd and a 5 yr old..I am trying to get some me time but can not find a slot...I work 8 hrs and I cook at home for them...
today I started off good but then again down hill..eating candies ..made some lasagna a recipe for Sparks and some banana nut bread.. when I feel like this I cook and bake...I gonna sit later on and work out a menu to follow next week..
I want to start walking again...felt better when I was walking all of the sudden I stopped and today I woke up with aches and pains...the were gone when I was moving ....
I write here and there some people motivate me but need some help to keep on...Thanks to gucci momma she seem to feel when I am going down hill she wrote today asking what is wrong that I have not been active on my teamsthat is what got me thinking and getting on the ball again.. but asking now why does this always happen to me....

    I here you girlfriend. I find I need to get up earlier than everyone else in the household. Whether it be just for me time (sparkspeople teams) and then I ALWAYS slot time to exercise. Exercise could be as simple as going for a walk around the block. You CAN ALWAYS find time for yourself. Pick a time and let everyone else know that you need this time for yourself

I'm here for you.

    Its life!!! Sometimes we just need to take a step back and realize what we love about our lives. I got a real slap across the face when my dad, my best friend, and my grandma all died in the same year. I used to always be able to go with the flow. Carpe Diem, seize the day. I had lost that for a while. Now whenever I get an opportunity to spend time with the people I love I run to do it. It makes my life complete.

What you are talking about really happens to everybody. I would recommend a couple of things 1)Love the skin you are in. You don't have to be thin to loveable and sexy. Look at Queen Latifa. She is a hottie right? 2)Try to stay positive and optimistic. So, much of everything is mental it is crazy.

Some things that I have been doing lately is buying stuff to eat that is already on the go type stuff. Individual cottage cheese, individual yogurt. This helps me not really have to think about the serving sizes and I can really just grab and not have to think about if it is okay because I already know it is.

Anyways stick to it. Don't give up. Anything is possible.

    We all have those days, but you are in control. You realize you have messed up, and you now have the power to steer yourself back on course. Don't beat yourself up, this is a minor blip on the radar... you can do this!!

    Don't beat yourself up. We all have days we would prefer to forget. The important thing is to move on from that. Tomorrow is a new day. Maybe you just needed a break for a day. Just don't let it defeat you. As Chris said in The Spark, "One step back, two steps forward." Look at today as a day in your rearview mirror and move ahead again.
