Life Happens!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

I have not Blog'd in a while. Sometimes Life happens so fast and furious. I am sure it won't be the last time. I have been going through a "Life Storm" with my daughter. She left her husband on July 5th and her and her 2 son's "4 & 5 yr olds" are staying with me and my husband. Thats not that bad, its her husband and how he can has handled all of it. I feel like I am in a nightmare and can't wake up. I cannot understand why things have to be like they are. I was divorced from my daughters father and I decided early on that our relationship was no longer about us it was about our kids. You just have to realize that you have to focus on whats best for your children. And that its not always the best thing to stay together. What good does it do to let them see the fights and anger. I believe my daughter is trying to do the right things. I know that she has not always made the right choices. I also know that marriage is 2 people....and if one is overly controlling over the other that the other will feel like they are of no value. That is not a way to live. To me each person must commit to giving 100%....it is not a 50/50.....to me 50/50 means "half ass". You have to put your partner above yourself. Selfishness is destruction to individuals and relationships. I hate divorce....it is so very hard especially for the children....but sometimes staying in a bad relationship is worse.....I believe God knows this and will forgive. I truly love my daughter, both my grandson's and yes her husband. I pray for God's grace in there lives. I pray for acceptance and peace. This has been a very difficult time and I never dreamed that I would have to see my daughter go through this. But me going through my own divorce I know "this too shall pass". God knows all things and every heart and I pray for his answers in this all.

As far as my weight loss and fitness journey I have continued to lose a little and stay on track as much as my circumstances have allowed. I have not exersized like I was with the WII, but I have been walking with my other daughter once or twice a week.....we have been using this time as fitness and counseling time.
I am excited because I am in a size 8 now....when I started I was getting in 14's. So I am proud of myself even through all this stress that I have maintained. I have lost about 20 pounds since April of this year....Woohoo!

I continue to try and make good eating decisions and making this a true life perspective.

Well Happy Saturday to everyone!

Thanks for listening.

    Mom, I cannot tell you just how proud I am of you. Not only for your weight loss but for being my strength through all of this. I am so thankful to have you in my life and I am so sorry for whatever I have or will put you through but just know that no matter what I love you with all my heart and feel truly blessed to have you as my mother.

You're doing emoticon with your weight loss and I'm sure you'll be in "my category" in no time! LOL

Sunday!

Sunday, May 23, 2010

Happy Sunday!
I hope and pray that everyone is well today. I went grocery shopping with Shawna today.
She came by to say hello and give Mom a hug.....how sweet is that :)....Matt had to help his Mother (Barbara) get his Sister's car from N Dallas. Matt also has a hair line fracture in his jaw and has not felt well at all.

My Mom (Ann) and Dad (Troy) came to visit with me yesterday. It made me feel good that they came over. I had Eric & Dylan (GrSon's) so they were able to see them too. They were being very Lovng with Mama & Daddy....You can tell they know they are loved by them.

I have been tracking my Food and Water intake everyday. I think it really is helping me. There are those few days a week it is hard to stay within my calorie goals. But I just keep on track as close as possible one step at a time. Seems to be working so far. And by the way I lost another pound. emoticon .......and that is such a good thing. emoticon

Hump Day!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Its been a ruff week. Mostly work related. It is so hard to work with negative people. It really brings me down. I try to be upbeat...but when you are around negative it just brings you down. It makes me shut down.....just not saying anything....cause I don't want to get bit at so to speak. Its sad that things have to be that way. I pray for peace of mind, body and soul.

I am proud of myself....Saturday 5/15/10 I walked/jogged (mostly fast walked) my 1st 5K. High five to myself. I walked along with my 2 lovely daughters. It was a very good experience and I am so glad that I did it. I told the girls we will have to do this again.

I have been doing good on my eating for the most part. We had a small party Sat. night and I kept control on my eating and did not over eat. Thank goodness. I just did not stay by the food. I made a plate and walked away. And only had 2 mixed drinks.

MONDAY!!!!

Monday, May 10, 2010

Man was it a Monday....Boss calls us in the office for what we think is a positive meeting then blam the negative comes right on in...:(. Then we had a worker give her 2 wks notice...which can be a blessing and a curse. Blessing cause I am so hoping for a raise. (not had one for 4 yrs). Curse cause of course it means more work...more presure. emoticon I pray that God will give me the strength.

Went out to Scarborough Faire for Mothers day. A large part of my family was there. It was also my mothers birthday. We had a picnic in the parking lot......it was alot of fun and great memories. I love my family so much....each and everyone of them.

Today is my 1st born's birthday. Christi was also born on Mothers day.....what a special day that was. She made me a mother on Mothers day how very special. Of course she has always hated that she had to share her birthday....not only with her Nana but with Mothers day. But to me it is always very special. My little blessing. So precious to me. I have always thanked God for allowing me to be her Mother.

I have been doing ok as far as weight loss. I have not been able to exercise cause I hurt my knee. But I am still trying to keep within my calories. Trying to stay positive.

One of my ALL time favorite band's. I have listened to them since I was 14 years old. They were the first rock band that I seen live. WOW! What an impression. I love Gregg Lake and Keith Emerson man what a musician........and I met them Saturday night. It makes my heart pound thinking about it. And I owe my daughter and lovely friend Shawna for treating me to the night. I felt like queen for the day! Thank you baby girl....Mwah! ((((BIG HUG)))) God Bless you!

I have been watching what I am eating and tracking food and calories. It really does make sense when you look at what choices that you are making. I feel like I am in training to learn the proper way to eat. In a lot of ways I am eating more than I was but at different times and food choices.
I did not get to do my 20 min walk yesterday or today. But I did walk Sat with Matt , Jaden & Peyton. And yesterday I worked out with the Wi Fit. And today did my own cardio....pretty much jogging in the house.....then did some kick boxing that I had learned at the Gym....then some crunch's....it worked me out....I worked up a good sweat.

Wens May 5th is Kitten's B-day (my niece). Then May 9th is My Mom's B-day and Mothers Day. Then Christi's Birthday (my daughter).....AWE!!!!! and have nothing done! It is coming so fast. Should be a good day...going to Scarborough Faire.

I am so proud of Matt (my husband). He has lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. He and I have been doing it together. I think that is helping both of us.
Way to go Matt!!!ki\ik78] LOL that was Belle (my kitty) stepping on my key board.
