Overdone?

Thursday, June 18, 2009

So I've decided to go with 30 minutes per day and see how that works out. Also today is my nephews birthday and there is going to be a party so I won't know whats on the menu until I get there. I do plan on eating in moderation so it's ok, or maybe I'll just my daughter first and then let me know what their eating so if it's not compatible then I can cook something at home, besides me and my husband are not party people, we're homebodies emoticon

    I always go with the one bite rule on gatherings because something like that isn't often for me either. I am a homebody too!

    Sounds like you have a plan going. That's what I believe helps us stay on track, is to know how we are going to handle the siuations when they come up. emoticon

Beginning Again :)

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

So the first thing I did when I got up, was to get ready and go to the fitness center. I worked out for only fifteen minutes but to me it was worth it and I plan on going back this evening for at least 30 minutes. Tomorrow I plan to get back to Curves too and then next Tuesday I want to go back to my TOPS group. It feels so good to be a "homebody", I can care for me, my husband, my grandson, my daughter and foster daughter, and best of all I can get back to Sunday Church service. So here I go to the happier and stress free MEEEEEeee! emoticon

    I'm so glad you can stay home & care for you & family ( don't forget to be kind to yourself too).
It's a blessing to be able to do that.
Hugs,
WW
And I so hear you about church! I should know by the end of the week if I can keep the Monday -Friday schedule or have to go back to Sunday thru Thursday.
Hugs,

    So like you have a plan. I am so jealous of you being able to plan your day around you and your family.

    Good morning, I'm so happy that you are being so positive. Each day is so hard and for the loss you have suffered it is even harder. I too belong to TOPS. I've belonged for a long time now but have gone up and down. One time I even lost 100 lbs back then I was down to 239. Now i'm up so high it's ridiculous. I am trying to stay good now, joined a challenge and am thinking positive. Please have a good day. Veronica

It's over..............

Monday, June 15, 2009

I finally had enough of all the cr#@ at work and I QUIT! It happened that it was family who finally broke me, and i just couldn't take it anymore. I love my sister, BUT she had no right to treat me the way she did, and it wasn't the first time. It's too bad that I left them in a bind, but for my sanity and well-being I needed to do something. I mean I've thought about it and talked about it, and even my husband agreed, that if this is what I wanted to do then just do it. So today is my first day of voluntary early retirement. emoticon emoticon

    Sometimes we do have to not allow others to treat us poorly. Happy early retirement....make it about you...take care of yourself and look for opportunities to be with others & maybe do some volunteering (it does help one's self-worth while helping others).
Hugs,
Judy

    Sometimes we need to do hard things for our mental health. Leaving a job isn't easy, but if it was causing you that much stress then being out of there is a good thing. I lost a great job last year, but frankly the stress was killing me. I'm not making as much money, but feel so much more at peace that it's worth it.
Good luck finding another, better one!'Hugs,

It's one thing or another :(

Saturday, June 13, 2009

Yesterday morning I was sick with so much gas and bloating and diarea which was fixed with pepto bismol and priloscec, then in the evening I had two teeth worked on and my whole lower jay was sore after the numbness wore off. So when I went to bed I loaded up on ibuprofen and sleep aids. And NOW my stomach just burns, not gas or bloating just burns. Even to drink water is painful, oh well I am hope this afternoon will be better because I really wanted to start a walking routine for my days off. I hope you all are having a better week, "Be Blessed, sparkfriends."

    These issues are just attacks from the enemy to keep your focus off your journey and other desires for your life. Pray and ask God for relief. He's there for you and so are we!!! Hope you are feeling better soon. Peace and blessings, Kita

    I definitely think something is going around, since you are describing exactly what has bothered me and my second daughter lately.

I pray that you get better soon!

Upset about what????

Friday, June 12, 2009

For almost a week my stomach has been upset, bloating, gas, and now diareah, Why is this happening, I have no idea, and yet I wanted a stress free weekend but nooo! I've been sittin in the bathroom all hours of the night. Now that I've found some stomach meds I am off to get some much needed sleep.

    Maybe something is going around. My daughter Catherine had the same problem for a while. Of course, it could be some food poisoning, since that is what she thinks was her problem.

I am praying for you!!!
