Reaching out

Friday, May 29, 2009

During my lifetime, I have had a difficult time reaching out to others when I needed help and support. I was there for others, but would stuff my feelings and hide what was really "eating at me". I think I was bulimic way back in the 60's before they term was out there.
yet nobody knew. Paying the price for it now, but I have learned that when you take the first steps, it becomes a lot easier to tackle problems by asking for advice and help.
So today I reached out with a problem to SP immediate help and with some great member advice. I succeeded in keeping my sodium in between the values tonight. ok it's been only 2 days out of the week, and I messed up in completing this week's challenge...But You know for once I say Ok there is next week to keep trying to keep the levels in between.
Oh my SP you are creating a self motivated, a reaching out to others, exercising, water drinking, blog writing, working on life changes Woman. emoticon emoticon

Luck of the draw

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

I wrote this great( if I say so myself) entry and my computer crapped out and lost it. Now I wish I could remember all I wrote but I am getting brain toots( I am being polite) But i think you get the drift. So I cannot remember it all. I will try... Today my get up and Go Got up and went then wandered back. I did do diligence and moved forward with my goals and charting. Went to the supermarket after the rain stopped. ( sunny Florida hahaha) Did 10 minutes of walking and can I get credit for pushing the cart??? Beat the rain home and had a filling dinner with Jack. Some how I am below the low end of my calories and cannot figure out how. Who am I to complain. So I took a big step and gave myself a pat on the back( I never do that) I am grateful to SP for giving me the opportunity to be kind to myself. The test tomorrow is "Can I give myself a pat on the back everyday. That is one of my own personal challenges . Think I can keep it up?
Going to relax with a movie tonight and listen to more thunder and rain.
First and foremost. Big Hugs and Thank you to all who I have met on SP and have not met yet. You Inspire me to be the best I can be, One Day at A Time. I read your welcomes, entries blogs and know i am not alone in this quest for optimum health and weight loss.
Together we can do this.

rough patch

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

today is a very emotional day. last night a dear friend called and told me her little pup was very ill. reminded me of my little girl(i am holding her in my photo) who passed on 12/08. We offered support suggestions for second opinion but only they can decide what to do. Then today my dear cousin called and told me about her health issues. I am doing alot of praying today.
Still trying to look at the bright side of things. Able to suggest joining SP and being here for support.
One Day At A Time!!! My mantra.
Going to go look at motivation and read today.
Have a Blessed and Wonderful Spark Day. emoticon
