Everything will be alright.

Sunday, July 08, 2012

Well, not a horrible day at work. Don't like the work, but there are some perks. The best one today was being able to take 2 walks 60/20 min each. Also was able to do some spiritual reading, very encouraging that things happen for a reason and/or will eventually work out--I just have to keep praying for strength to do my part. Eating the healthiest for the longest time, in years--God Bless you Sparkguy; you will be in my prayers.

    Hi: I don't remember the last time I worked; but that is part of our life. That is in the Bible: Genesis 3:14-19. Sometime is fun; sometime hard. You have see each day as a new, wonderful one. Thinking that is your first day in your job and you need that money like crazy. That will make you to take the job easy. GOD BLESS YOU.

Encouraging to get on the scale and lose some weight even tho unable to exercise. Just haven't been turning to food nearly as much for comfort. Such a relief to have this site for support--even if just to turn to it, play with the different sites instead of eating.
So far still employed and even had a nice day. Tomorrow will be working at a site I've had most of my problems with. One day at a time.

Not great but not giving up

Friday, July 06, 2012

Life is 'crazy bad right now. I'm pretty sure I'm going to lose my job and i'm the only income. I really don't like the job I have but have not found a bettIer one yet. Did a lot of sitting and doing nothing today--it just feels so good to escape in tv/internet/reading and pretend that there are no problems. Too hot to walk, don't know if i would have, and did not make it to my healthclub--which is very inexpensive and closing in 2 wks.

Well, I'm not buried in food at the moment. Maybe I'll even have a time of prayer and meditation
now before going to bed and get to that job in the morning.
It's all going to work out, right?

Still hanging in--barely

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

So great to come home from work and get encouraging comments from my spark friends. With so much happening now in my life--it was great to hear from friends. I really can't give this site up, because I have nothing else to turn to. I am going to utilize as much as I can. can't give up.

I'm a mess.

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

Had a good first week and now I've crashed and burned. Very little motivation. Lots of worries and problems, not unlike most, but I'm choosing to hide or run away from them; instead of facing them and finding solutions.
Totally glass is half-empty. I hate my job, but can't get myself to get that resume finished, and then wonder if anybody would even hire me. I have bad knees, but don't do my stretches and now I have to find another health club, my very inexpensive one is closing. I don't know how my son is going to get thru college w his learning disability and my husband has been out of work for years--having to tap into retirement now.
Eating today was half horrible. No exercise yet today. I am drinking water.
Well, I won't give up. I'm going to keep blogging. I really am grateful for so much of my life--I'm just choosing to let the challenges keep me down instead of handling them.

  Thank you all. I am in a crazy fog right now. I think I am going to lose my job--and I don't see anything out there for me. Eating was better today because I am not hungry and wasn't around it. No exercise--too hot. I hope you all had a nice 4th.

    You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

You have the power to succeed or fail.

You have chosen to succeed.

Few baby steps complete a long journey

Writing is progress!!!

    What helped you get through the frist part of the week? Think back on that for motivation. I'm glad you shared this blog. I think writing things down help to think them through.
