One day at a time

Sunday, October 04, 2009

Well today I read a blog that said to take it slow I just did that ..today I did not let this new way of living (healthy) consume me..taking the exeercise first I walked around two blocks with my son been doing that for the past week its my first..when he goes to his Judo class I walk on the treadmil I do not like to walk out of the house alone..that is another problem I have that will deal with it another time..I did my cours in my backyard..it was a beautiful day I had some birds singing on my mango tree..I sat there and listen ...
My life is not easy .. I have two boys one is 11 and the other is 4..my eldest is diagnos with ADHD and speech delay.. he has his crisis..the reason I am saying these things which I normally do not say is that I get fustrated depress and anxious and I turn to food the hunger is unbearable after I put everybody to bed ..but I am learning to deal with it have not accomplished it totally I know that it takes time..but I have notice that some days it tunes down (the hunger)
I am trying to look into what I can do when those times hit..I have a book to read at night before going to bed I read a couple pages to relax but looking into the evening when watching tv..I am also trying to pick up on my drinking water can not pass the 5 glasses a day .. want to reach to 8 this week coming gonna try to reach to 8.. so like I said I am doing little things little by little and one day at a time..

  Hang in there; it does get frustrating with everything life throws at you. We are going thru a very hard time right now too. We bought our own truck 2yrs ago but the economy we lost it. So I'm not working right now & my husband was off work for 5 wks. I ate too much today after being so good this week & didn't do much as far as exercise either. I do get my 8 glasses in by filling a pitcher full in the morning & it has to be empty when I go to bed. I did at least that today. Like you said one day at a time. Good luck & God Bless

    Thanks for sharing. I understand your situation. I have a 16 y/o son who is ADHD and Bi-polar. He can be something some times. I also have a 2 y/o son and a soon to be 6 y/o daughter have speech problems also. Just dont ever let life make you give up.

It was a great day..

Saturday, October 03, 2009

Today when I woke up and looked in the mirror while brushing my teeth I thought that the day is how you think its gonna be , so I thought you know today I decided that I am going to have a great day.. with that being in my mind it did turn out to be a great day.. did things I would have never thought I would do ..It has been a while since I have not clean my windows in my house I mean a real deep clean.. out of the twleve I did six.. then I helped my husband mow the lawn.. I feel a sense of great accomplishment.. I actually did all that..later we played in the bakcyard boy the boys had fun.. then in the evening I cooked dinner and we sat at the dining room table no more sitting scatter around the house in front of tv..we had a real great family time my little one asked that if it was thanksgiving time again.. we laughed and I told him well you know it is .. we are thankful to be together and have a great day.. the power of the mind does help alot.. now I need to apply it towards my health .. one day at a time..

The weekend is here..

Friday, October 02, 2009

Well the weekend is finally here.. to most people is a time to relax and wined down.. for me it a little fustrating..my weekend is about doing my grocery and preparing for the week to come..I do my cleaning house and clothes and prepare food for my boys..always its what they like..its the only way I get them to eat..
usually we go out to eat I feel guilty if I say no due to that I am trying to lose the exta pounds I have..so I go then I try to get the healthy stuff but do not feel that I would be part of the group..I must learn to stay away from those type of situtations but I do want to have fun with my family..well I think I have said enough let's see how this weekend turns out. .. you know time to think of it IT'S GONNA BE GREAT!!!!!

    Why is it that if we don't eat fried fatty foods that everyone else does makes us feel like outcasts?! I prefer the salads and healthier choices - they taste better and I don't feel greasy, bloated and nauseas after I eat them... so funny how we are supposed to be healthy, but when we choose healthy we are looked at like outsiders? Things that make you go ... hmmmm...

Enjoy your weekend with your family. That's what matters!!

    Good for you!!!!! Keep up the positive attitude. All those details may be little but they all add up .... You are learning to appreciate those "little" things.
