HI there sparkers.

Sorry for the total frustration and anger on my status, not a good morning to say the least.
This afternoon is better so far, sun is out, walks are done, hubby is putting winter tires on dads car, we got ours bought and on at lunch time.

Dil will cut my hair tomorrow just before supper time so that is great, we go visit our friends on Thurs am and I will feel fresh and clean. My hair has been weighing me down cos never feels tidy. That will be nice to have done.

Must get a walk in to the library this eve, as there is a book there and they only hold them so long. Oh well have lots here to check on allready can always re order it.

Okay best get a move on to some more stuff. want to go down after supper and get dads stuff organized a bit more. We got the right countertop no charge and the cupboard that they gave us the wrong colour and no longer stock, was able to speical order it at 67$ I said but why do we have to pay that even though it is special order and it wasn't our mistake the door only cost 40. So we are getting that for 40 so ended up good alround.

Hope you all have a great day, eve, or night lol
HUGS

    Sounds like a good deal on the countertop! I'm not sure if you realize it but your status is sent to private so I don't think one can go back and read it or make comments. At least I couldn't!

A haircut is always a good feeling, isn't it? I recently cut mine off from almost mid-back to a bog and just last week into layers. My hair grows so fast so I like to play around with it.

Have a great night! I'm glad you use the library!!!!

NIght all.......... I am so tired but know it is the pain bothering me again. That's okay I will survive, many have it way worse than I.
We went to pick up out counter for dads kitchen area, and it wasn't finished, so we went to get some other stuff, went back, mur measured the length and we went home with it. Took it down stairs and not wide enough, he measured and they gave us a bathroom size. So has to call first thing in am. also has to get the snow tires on tomorrow, go get allies flea stuff and not sure what else.
Checked to see where the place I have to go to for assesment is, no problem finding it and easy parking. It is a physio place, so hope they do diff than a WCB exam.
Well not much more, just a lot of pain. Weather may change I don't know but my feet, knees, hip, wrists and shoulder are all hurting. Usually not all of my arthritis areas are bad at once. Back so so for a change. lol
Off to bed, going to take my meds and hope to sleep well. NIGHT ALL HUGS
and MANY thanks for all the replies, spark mail and such that I got in reply to my quest!
HUGS you guys SPARK! LOL

For those of my spark friends who love yoga, and have talked about their practise with me, know I was doing back care yoga, till my sciaitca got so bad and then the renos etc. I am planning to get back to yoga at least till year end, and as much as I can. I have a lot of paid up classes to use by Jan so was checking out the new schedule.
hope this link works to show you what this great yoga studio is offering.

I have a few in mind back to my back care,easing anxiety, meditation, and or stress relief, and maybe gentle or slow flow yoga. I want to figure the best times and when they all are.

Doing better this eve, didn't get anything else done but just feel calmer. I know I will get myself well again.

HUGS and now that it is 9:45 I should take her out again, and then maybe she will sleep till the "real" 7:30 !

night all!

edited to do as 1st reply suggested. and no am not promoting this biz. just want friends to know what is offered to me.

Sunday, November 04, 2012



So feeling a tad better, got all the recycle junk out, 2 bags paper, 1 plastic, and the compost bin out, still need hubby to bring the 3 huge things of cardboard up from downstais so I can take it out early -they won't take if if it gets wet. hard in winter! lol

I have been thinking about me and my self sabotage or even self neglect. I haven't been eating well for at least a month now, losing wt but only cos walking allie anywhere from 4-7 miles a day. I have to get back to ensuring I am taking my vit d, omega 3, b complex, and cod liver oil to help with vit d assimilation. I also have to eat more than I am or at least better. Can't tell you a day that I have ha more than 1 or even one veggie in while. Not much fruit either. Hmmm protein yea some. But carbs HAHA well guys what else but carbs, fast, easy and so good. BUT I am not stupid ( I detetst that word) but sure can act it. I know carbs bother me, cos they have so much sugar, and usually are processed, and and and.........

I have even been meaning to make my grain free bread but when I look at the mess of my kitchen even if all the dishes are done and put away, I just don't have the energy. whew.

I also have been going to write to one of my long time spark friends and say tell me how did you start... what did you do to just get yourself started. So instead of asking her, or I will probably ask her anyway...... lol I will ask most of you.
Please don't say one day at a time, I want well....... I started eating more of this, then I slowly started this.... etc. and I also have to not let my limitations limit me if that makes sense.

So tomorrow hope to get my hair cut, and take a short dash to chapters. I am hoping to find a book that I want. I must remember to call dil to see when she can cut my hair. I am so sick of feeling old and not kept care of. Even though I do want to grow it, I want to do so to tie it back or braid it. Well then why not have it short... now a chin length bob or a short cut... I don't know.

It seems later than it is of course first day of time change can do that, Bedtime would be nice LOL it is 6:55. can you tell I am worn and frazzled. lol
HUGS to all that responded to me and gave and or will give ideas to this and the last blog.
I am so thankful to have such great caring spark friends.

    I started by recognizing some of the "flaws" in my eating habits like you have just listed. I was a major carb lover, no freggies, and TOO MUCH COKE! I focused one area each time. First I tried to reduce/eliminate coke. However, coke is my one true joy (i know that sounds silly, but I enjoy it so much) so I've heavily reduced it, and I also reduced coffee (because I add sugar there too) so then I don't have to feel guilty about it when I do drink it. Funny enough, the less I drink it, the less I enjoy it.

I tried to increase my water. I aimed for 8 glasses a day however, I slowly increased it.

I"m still struggling with veggies, but last week challenge had me focus a bit more. Veggies are hard, so I tried to add one more a day.

What really helped me is to stop buying the unhealthy things and then buy more snacks that were healthier so they were available. I like convenience.

    I started this journey by focusing on health, not weight. At first choosing a vegetarian diet; I found that too restrictive. Eventually I settled on a vegetarian diet that included low fat dairy, eggs and fish. This will be my lifetime diet of choice. I like it and don't miss the meat and chicken at all. Easily eat 9-11 servings of fruit and veggie a day. I will not be hungry; and on this diet plan I definitely am not. When my weight started coming down and I was feeling better that motivated me to count calories. 1800-2000 calories a day (maintenance) slowly brought me to goal weight. I continue on that but to maintain I had to increase activity and shoot for 120 varied fitness minutes a day. That's where I'm at and life is good. You will find what works for you.

    I'm having some of the same problems. As I think back on what i was doing that was working, I believe it had a lot to do with my focus. I was thinking about my program a lot. I logged onto Spark several times a day, just 5 minutes at at time or less, to read something or log something. I planned my meals for the day so I didn't have to think about it. I think having the mental game, keeping my goals in my uppermost mind, helped a lot. It helps when you have to decide: this or that? If your program has not been on your mind, you kinda go on autopilot and make the old bad choices more easily.

Maybe try checking in here more often, or write down your plans and goals or use your goal posterboard images to look at frequently. I think it makes a real difference.

Sunday...................

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Okay venting here, feeling depression coming and feel it is well earned if it comes but don't want it here. lol
Started out a great day, got up barely able to put my socks on ( that scares me) then able to get my shoes on, allie and I went for med walk. Came home and did a bit then went for another walk, came home put her in her kennel and went back to bed. had a cuddle, oh back rub AHHH and then had shower cos we all went out for breakfast, dad, us, kids, grandkids - was fun. Thomas was good and coloured and sat in his chair, Eva fell asleep then just sat with mama.
Then dd, hubby and I went to the mall cos wanted some stuff at zellers 40% off as they are closing, got shelf liner, pr mitts etc but wasn't there long and wow serious hot flashes, big time. Need to take coat off, lean on wall. stop then look for a bit.
Got home walked dog, dd tried to figure what to do with all the boxes so we can sort better, we didnt' make much headway. I put a load of our laundry in. Then walked the dog. FINALLLY she is tired, I sat with tea and looked at a country magazine. but then started to get so depressed. My ENTIRE house is a shambles. I am not a super tidy person but this is really getting to me. My living room has 2 couches, ( we all know one stinks! LOL) boxes by one wall. recyled papers on my couch so dog can't get at them till recycle day tomorrow.
My hall doesnt have flooring or a fridge, but does have a vanity, the area to put it is full of stuff. still have flooring for hall and bathroom in diing room along with another vainity and toilet oh llighting fixtures, vainity fixtures.... my stairs going up have 4 boxes, dads bulliten board, a board across the base so allie doesnt go up. My dining room table is a mess ( that is normal LOL). welcome to my kitchen with a coffee table in it, so I can't get at my pots and pans, so they are clean onmy counter, there is dirty dishes that need to be done. my water bottles on counter, dads stuff on the coffee table, my crockpot and blender on other counter. NO ROOM.
So come up stairs, my craft room is wicked, cos took everything off one bookcase so we could take it to dads bthroom, and all the stuff I took off is on table , floor wherever. Exercise room has a small table that wasn't there but since I have mums curio table where it was , it has no home... blankets on the chairs in exercise room cos nowhere to put them all. OH our bedroom, well it still has stuff on the floor from when we emptied the trailer, cos I cant find room for it.
OMG there is nowhere except my bathroom that is clean and normal. Even our car, dd van have stuff piled in it. Tomorrow we have to empty the car so we can go get the counter top. once he gets that on, then we can fill the bottom cupboards which will help some too. I want to got the dollar store for cheap peel and stick tiles for under the sink. Dad makes a real mess under there. So maybe tomorrow we can get a bit more done. but really what is bugging me the most is our part as seems as if it has been like this forever then thought yea about 6 months or more.
SIGH so yea a case for blah, poor me, depression etrc. and haven't even started on the pain in my L foot, and pain in R knee and entire R leg a bit. and all that causing my posture to be worse than normal ............
BUT there is always light in all this, - there will be and end, dad hasn't smoked in the house and most days have rained, I MAY get a new couch But seems unlikely, they all say we hear you hourly about the couch ......... told hubby nothing for me for xmas, bday, whatever the house gift can be a couch and chair. I will put this on kijiji and even give dad the $$ but Id on't want it in here. They all aren't listening anymore. oh yea positives... I am not really sick, Allie with attitude is making my fit bit reach high numbers lol
HUGS
but have to say I am just so tired of it alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. waaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh. lol

    Perhaps make a list of things that need to be done (seems like you kinda already know) and do one or two things a day, and don't worry about it the rest of the day. That way you can feel like progress is being made and not have to feel guilty when you aren't working on the project immediately.

    Sometimes when things are like this I just aim for one WIN per day. Something done that made me feel better, less like I'm losing my grip. It helps.
