My promise to myself today

Thursday, November 25, 2010

I am so excited to be able to hold each of my children today--yes, they are all grown--but when I hold them they are mine again--if only for a brief moment--the world stands still until I must give them back to the adult world.

My promiseto myself this day is to not eat more than a cup of stuff total at each place.

I am proud to say that I kept my last promise to myself not to eat what would make me sick for 3 day----YES I MADE IT AT MIDNIGHT!!
Maybe that is why I am so wide awake too???? A promise made to myself and kept--I feel sooooo good about that and I lost that other 2 pounds that make up the 5 that I had gained.

    Promises kept are the best kind.
I agree with SEAGLASS - SAY IT... MEAN IT.... DO IT.

thanks for the advice on phone

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

I am trying the drying out things
I walked today and noticed how light my pocket was without the phone
couldn't call and tell that I was going to be late for the Costco walk--bummer
Walked for a half hour it was cold and the bridge had ice on it--kinda like snow.

Weighed in at TOPS I lost the 2 pounds--so now I have lost the 5 I had gained.

That certainly brightened my day.

I decided to put off the block work--too cold and I was not going to chance becoming immobile this time of year--I want to enjoy the Holidays!!

I also am learning that I do not deserve orhave to hurt -- go figure.
I am fine just how I am.

I am so looking forward to seeing my four children on Thursday---I will have to do a lot of driving to see them in one day---but it will be worth it. Holidays without them are not really fun. I wish --I wish but reality is that it will never be the same again.
That's got to be ok--it is not bad--it is just different.

God bless you all--and Happy Thanksgiving. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have heard that if you open it up and take out the battery and the sims card (if it has one) then let it dry completely, like a couple of days or more, that once it is completely dry, it will work again. If you turn it on or charge it while it is still damp it will short out. Just a suggestion:)

I left mine out in the rain. When I turned it on I fried it.

    After my husband washed my pedometer, he put it in a Tupperware container full of uncooked rice overnight and it was good as new. I know that may be a little different for your cell, but worth a try!! There are some sites you can check for other suggestions to just Google it!!

keeping a promise to myself

Sunday, November 21, 2010

I have never liked a liar. I realize now that I have been a liar when I make promises to myself and don't keep them. I will bend over backwards to keep a promise to others Yet I think nothing of breaking them to myself.
I deserve to trust myself and I will keep this promise:
Liquids for the next 3 days---
Atkins Chocolate and fruit and veggie juice.

I will feel better--when Wednesday night comes I will buy myself something with my spark points as a reward---After all I deserve something special.

Also when I reach that goal I have another for Thanksgiving---going several places
I vow to eat no more than a cup of total at each place. Mostly all the clean veggies.
I will taste with tsp if really want too.

Sweets are not my thing--yet when I get edgy because there is nothing to do and all that is going on is boring I eat-- it is my place to take care of myself--myself is my best friend -always there for me and I do not want to feel that I let her down again--she deserves more.

Friday after reaching that goal I will look at myself in the mirror and say thank you to myself, and I will use Spark Points to buy something bright and fun!!

    Thanks, I needed to hear that this morning! I think we are all liars to ourselves even though we would not want to lie to others! I enjoyed reading your blog. Keep up the good work! emoticon

    You are right we lie to ourselves the most. But we are also the hardest critics also. Do not go to the dinners hungry. Have some yogurt or fruit before you go.
