Very Tired

Sunday, October 11, 2009

I'm feeling very tired and down. Can't explain it. I need to get ready for church, but all I want to do is crawl back in bed. Maybe I should check in with the deppression team. I joined the Depression Team, but never did any postings. One good thing I guess. The kids weren't home, so on the way home from work yesterday, I thought I would 'treat' myself to a McFlurry. I thought I would enjoy it since the kids weren't here. I didn't. I didn't enjoy the oatmeal cream cookies I had stashed in my car on the way home. I thought I would, but no. So...why should I do that anymore? Why should I buy the junk if I doesn't make me feel anybetter? I think I'll try a goal of only eating goodies when there is a church gathering, or I'm at someones house. I need to get ready for church now. I'm in a great church. I always feel better when I'm there.

  


Nothing exciting ...Just shopping

Friday, October 09, 2009

Today its going to be very busy as usual. I won't have any time for the gym...but...I'm hoping to get on my treadmill. It's payday, so that means get bills out, and shopping. I hate shopping. I suppose I would like it more if I was able to have a savings account...but ..I have to watch every penny, like most people. It was good to get to the Y yesterday. I hate watching the clock when I'm there, but, I had to be to work by 2PM. And, I'm a little pleased with myself because I had a not so good day at work. Drama with a client. Typical, but its one of those situations where I would try to console or give myself an excuse to buy a box of brownies, and then hide them from my kids, and eat the whole thing! But ...I didn't! I had stopped at the corner market to get some potato salad and coffee before work, and all I got were some mini musketeer bars. That's it. I avoided the store on the way home! Yaaaaay ! Days like yesterday are typical on my job, and I need to remind myself of that, and find some other way of dealing with it. That, and other times like when I have a tiff with one of my teenagers. I like this blog business. I can vent to a certain degree, and keep what I eat in check thinking of the possibility that someone might read it!
I am a little concerned that because I need groceries, I can't prepare my dinner to take with me to work after shopping. I don't think there will be enough time to prepare anything. So, that means possibly getting some 'value menu' fast food. Not good. But...hmmmm...our Costco is next to a Trader Joes...and they have the BEST SALADS!

  I envy you. We do not have a Trader Joe's. Used to shop there all the time in New England, and I really miss it.

Another Crazy Day Ahead....

Thursday, October 08, 2009

I'm tired....my house is a mess...I have to play chauffeur....I have lesson plans to make for my kids school .....laundry....animals....teenagers...AND I AM BOUND AND DETERMINED TO GET TO THE YMCA TODAY AND HAVE A BIG SALAD WITH LOTS OF KALE AND SPINACH! Mercy! Life is a challenge! Getting ready for the gym and taking time to chop up the salad takes time...but it needs to be done and it needs to be done before I get out the door. I don't have to be in to work until 2PM...and that time before work could be used for ALOT of things like housework....running errands..etc...but...if I don't get this time at the gym....

Well...anyway...you know whats almost funny...or ironic? My 33 year old client today is very obese...with severe type 2 diabetes....and its my job...while I'm on shift with her....to help her make healthy choices...and try to convince her to do some exercise! And MERCY that's a challenge!

  


I Blew It Today

Thursday, October 08, 2009

I went to a burger place today with a client...and had zuccinni fries. I consoled myself with the fact that I didn't have a burger with them....just the fries. I didn't eat much else after that...some Ramen noodles. No exercise today because it was just that crazy busy. I COULD have ordered a salad ....but...I REALLY LIKE zuccinni fries ! emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up. It happened and like you said, it could have been a lot worse but it wasn't. Today is another day and you will be in total control. But remember, if you want something, you might as well have it because if you don't, you'll eat everything else instead. Have a great day.

    You're right. At least you just ordered the zucchini fries. And it's good that you're being so honest with yourself about it. Tomorrow is another day.
