Well I've been meaning to tell you all about my horrible week..... and just got up enough energy to do so? That's my problem... "NO ENERGY"... for "life"...period!!!
Don't care about anything for the last week or so. I'm trying to figure it out as to why but ..???
Yesterday, I "tried" to get out and about... Went to the library, bank, bought me a new Schwinn "Cruiser" bicycle (pink and white), treated myself to lunch at Taco bell (bean burrito and a tostada), went to see my Mom (ugh, brings me down every time) and then went to a movie (bad because movie was good, but had medium popcorn w/butter "crap" and small drink) and came home. So it was a really "eventful" day for me!!
The outcome of yesterday was,
1. I need to stop doing my mother's wash weekly and only going to see her once a week instead of two. I have been doing it for one year straight and cannot handle the stress she puts on my life any longer. I feel it's my younger brother's turn to take over, so the phone call will be made today to him...send prayers please.
2. My cute pink and white bike, I brought home in a box, because I "Can" put things together, has a big hole in the top of the box showing me a bent and scuffed fender, so now I will have to put it back in the car myself, some how, and take it back... UGH UGH UGH!
The way that I'm feelin.. topped off with things like the above two just keep the "funk" fed!
This is not the norm for me and I need to snap out of it...
Tomorrow I have planned a great day: Going to Modesto, 30 min away and 1. Getting my feet done by my niece (massage, reflexology)... yumm..... 2. going to visit son #1 and my two grandkids, Olivia, 2 1/2 and Elijah, 10 mo (he's just started walking ;o) and 3. going to visit son #2 with my most recent grandbaby, Jackson, 7 mo old, and my wonderful daughter-in-law is cooking dinner for me and then coming home and probably sleep like a baby.
So anyway, enough of my problems, but one more thing, I'm going to be calling for my free 10 appointments through my insurance, for some therapy from a good Christian therapist. I did this many years ago for my last marriage and I loved it....so we'll see about this avenue possibly helping.
I am truly an emotional eater and need to get down to the problems and fix them. I do not want to start taking any more meds, which I know my doctor would give me.... Just "fix" the problem.
OK... now I'm done for this session.... and to all my "spark" helpers, therapist, etc.... I thank you in advance for your advice. All advice is welcomed.

Well, just thought I would check-in?? Haven't blogged for a few days and feel like I need to "report in".
I just joined two more teams, "Biggest loser Mailing List (ugh, just missed this last challenge) and Gettin Ready for Summer 2013 Weight Loss... so excited about that. I don't join too many teams because I like to be able to participate and support in all of them.
On of the teams has a daily goal of 100 crunches/day, so I definitely signed up for that one.
I found a Turbo Jam CD set at a used book store for $6 so will be going back on Wed. to pick that up on "payday"... gettin paid once a month sucks, cuz I'm out of $$ by the end of the pay period for any extra expenses Pray it will still be there on Wed.
Tomorrow is weight-in day so will hopefully break my plateau..."AGAIN" I'm goin for 206 ????
Still need to fine tune my eating habits, which will happen when I go grocery shopping for my "healthy foods".... and work on my water intake??? I really like water, too??
Made a great crockpot meal.... made it up as I went along: large piece of London Broil, topped with onion soup mix pkg, topped with lots of carrots, topped with a can of chopped tomatoes w/chilis and about 3/4 cup water... OMG delicious over whatever, I had some left over spaghetti (plain) it was sooooo good and sooooo easy!
Oh yea.... went to the used book store and got 7 paperback books for $3.75 ... ya gotta love those stores and librarys.... I DO!!
OK enough check-in and reporting from this end.... SPARK
"everyone" cuz ...

OH.. OH.. OH!! Just thought of another challenge for myself beginning tomorrow... I'm so excited I came up with this. Maybe some of you can do it... but it's hard if you're out and about all day, cuz I'm not! I'm a "stay at home Hapinana" so my possibilities are endless for a stay at home workout!! Here it goes.....................
Beginning tomorrow, Monday 9/17/12 I, Hapinana (Carol), will "COMMIT" to a 10 min. spurt of an energizing cardio workout of my choice at 9 A.M., 1 P.M. and 5 P.M. Monday thru Friday! (that's my signature)
I'm likin my new attitude I've got going with these little (big to me) goals I'm making for myself. Commitments are a thing in my life I'm not very good at. "following through" are two words in my life that have fallen by the wayside... BUT, NO MORE!!
My crunches on my stability ball goal is on day #4 and all is well.... today is 16 crunch day!!!
For me, if I make this kind of like a game (I'm a gamer) then it helps....I know, I'm crazy but I've met crazier, believe me!!!
I'm journaling my goals, which in turn is making me love journaling... which is a great thing!
