Today = Restart

Thursday, March 31, 2011

I have had a very stressful couple of weeks. During this time I have put myself last yet again. I know that by taking care of myself, I can take care of the ones that I love better. I am recommitting to a fresh start today. Yesterday, I had a very disheartening situation in which someone I love made a comment about my weight. It definately was not a compliment. I can't change the stresses in my life but I can change myself. So wish me luck! I am praying God gives me the strengh to stand strong and tall. I am hoping that in changing myself, peace will follow. I am tired of praying that each day is not as bad as the last.

  


Life is about learning to dance in the rain...Does anyone know when the rain ends?

Friday, January 28, 2011

I have learned a lot in my life. I think the most important lesson learned so far is to always have faith and things will work out. However, the lesson of keeping the faith is becoming quite difficult. My husband and I work extremely hard to live just pay check to pay check. Whenever we start to get ahead, life gets in the way. The fustrating part is there is nothing we can do about it but roll with the punches. My husband works for the government and was recently transferred to a new base. They said there would be no loss of pay since his original base is scheduled to close this September. Surprise, there was a reduction in pay. I am a contract worker to the government at the base closing in September. I have been sending my resume everywhere and have not had any responses other than I am overqualified or we can't afford even half of your salary. Unfortunatly, for me, government workers all have priority placement over me. I am trying to not stress eat and continue my daily regimen. I worry about the future of my employment, my home, and most of all my three children. There are so many Americans in the same situation as my family. It is scary and heartbreaking. We are falling behind more and more everyday with the loss of pay. I can't imagine what will happen when I lose my job.

Snow Day!

Friday, January 14, 2011

This is turning out to be a very difficult week. I have three sons, 3, 4, &9 years old. I love my children with all my heart, but sometimes they can make things difficult. Due to all of the snow, my 5 year old and I had the chance for a one-on-one day together. It is not very often I get time alone with my sons one-on-one. I wanted him to have full reign and really enjoy our time together. We went to Lowes and bought new blinds. (Most kids like toys r us - mine like Lowes) Then we went for lunch. I was good and ordered a side salad and water. Next thing I know I have mozzarella sticks acting as airplanes and yup, my mouth is the hanger. My meal planning went downhill from there. I know it is only one day. I am trying to have faith that if I work really hard this weekend by exercising the weigh in results will still be good. I am my own worst enemy. On the positive side, my son and I hung the blinds together when we got home. He was so proud of his work. We had so much fun and I will always remember our day together. I realized yesterday that my little boy is not so little anymore.

  


Here we go again!

Thursday, January 06, 2011

It is a new year and for many of us that means turning over a new leaf. I am trying to make time to take care of myself without hindering my other responsibilities. I was an inactive member on this site for over 2 years. I failed because of my in-ability to take time for me. This week has been hard but I am making progress. I have been cooking healthy for my entire family and also reading my school books while I walk on the treadmill. Trying to keep three boys and a husband happy makes everyday a challenge in itself. One day at a time, right!
