Heat & lack of sleep but also so blessed!!!

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Today I had off work as I work the weekend. We went to pick out our camper paneling this early morning. The heat is exhausting, plus I only had 3 hours sleep I am now feeling sick because of the heat & lack of sleep. I had plans to clean all windows today here at home,but I must put off as I am so not feeling well. There is always another day as I am blessed that is all I have wrong with me heat exhaustion & lack of sleep. I think of my beloved brother having the fight of his life & other spark folks going through severe illness & other issues. Take care everyone


Doing what you do not want to & end up doing the opposite & feeling good

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Today was in the high 90's & very very humid!!!! I had already made my mind up as I was walking out of work after 9 & 1/2 hours that I was coming home & just sitting in the air conditioned house as I was wiped out.
I came home & made an egg salad sandwich that was so loaded with garden red lettuce you could not even see the bread on the sides. Yum Yum !!!
I then went out & watered all the flower beds, I cleaned the bathroom & hall closet, & cleaned out the freezer & refrigerator I put in the wash & was outside hanging clothes in the dark at 9:30 pm. I went through the cupboards & got rid of excess items to take to the center. It was 11:00 pm when I finally sat down!!! Gee what happened to my evening of just sitting in the air conditioned house??? I must add I feel real good of getting this house work done especially when I had my mind made up to not do anything!!!! So I was thinking as I was doing my house work it is no big deal to do this house work it is something that must be done, but what I was thinking here was my mind was made up earlier not to, anything, but I had thought to my self yes I am tired but how would I feel if I reversed that & did something about it. I feel more energized as I kept doing my work & my mind was winding done from the day's work. So instead of doing nothing when I feel lax I will at least do something productive. I sure worked some calories off & have a healthier mind thought!!!

    Nice Job! Anything is better than nothing and it sounded like you needed to do that for yourself! It helped you relax as you continued through the night!
Great job! Take care!

    Good for you! I find when I am tired and just want to nap or sit still if I get up and move around I feel so much better.
Great plan.
Have a terrific day.

    So often we fail to recognize the exercise in housework, it definitely has a value. It is a win/win was we feel such grand satisfaction in putting our house in order. Good for you busy lady.

Eating less at family reunion!!!

Sunday, June 10, 2012

We went to the family reunion today so proud of my self did not eat any meat & did not have a plate over flowing. Had one tablespoon of a variety of certain foods.As far as desserts had a teaspoonful of 6 kinds . No soda or sugared ice tea I took my own water. Sure felt good not having to groan & moan because I felt like an overstuffed turkey ( I did not know how lean the meat was & the chicken was done in some kind of white sauce ) Hope you all had a good day the temp here is 90 . Take care

Naked on the scale

Monday, May 28, 2012

I wanted the results with out trying . I gained 4 pounds in one month. Then I stand there naked on the scale in disbelieve, as if it magically appeared & I had nothing to do with it. I am saying to myself how can this be. Oh Yeah let me tell you how it happened. I no longer walk or work out, I indulged in too many bratwurst, I have been eating more that my share of creamy foods, I eat late at night on empty bad cereal, Italian cookies, etc etc. Then I have the nerve to wonder what happened. I was reading ( mexgal 1 ) Sallie's blogs last night. This morning I have a knew awakening ( thanks Sallie ) this is my doing my laziness , my emotional upset because of my brother having cancer. He would not want me to let myself go he is fighting the battle of his life. In a sence we all are because the results can be life threatening if we do not take care of our bodies, I do not want my vessel of a body to be a garbage disposal. I will blog every day , I will record my foods I will start to walk & work out. Today is my new day !!!!

    Well, we just don't do well when we can't cope with overwhelming stress. The good news is that you assessed the situation and are taking back the controls. No harm done and you know what you want to do about it.

The stress is still there though. Can you walk it off? Every time your foot hits the pavement you can be talking it over and working through the fear, anger, pain and sadness.

Good job finding your way back.

    Wow, good for you to take stock of where you are and what is important to be healthy and strong and be there for your brother. You are so right that he would not want you to let yourself go. I am sure he loves you much and wants the best for you.
Peace be with you.
You can do this. Embrace the good feeling of treating your body well.
Have a good Memorial Day.

    I too have been eating badly. Gained 4lbs myself. I'm a bad stress eater. So finally Sat night as I had some chips " I said enough". I need to take care of myself. I don't have control of everything around me that is painful. Sunday am I stripped down and weighed my self, corrected my ticker to show my correct weight, put my pedeometer on to measure steps and filled a gallon jug with water. I tracked all day and drank most of the water. The foods were not the best choices but I have been eating out of my freezer and pantry mostly due to a tight budget but I did stay with in my calorie range. You are so right! Our bodies are not a garbage disposal. Wishing you a great new day! You are not alone. We can do this together.

    Try it one thing at a time. For me, I concentrate on the food rather than the exercise because it takes less time (very precious right now with moving my mother who is entering dementia, and selling her car and condo, and being her only transportation) and there are days (try months) when it's all I can do to keep it together. BUT I watch what I eat, so no real damage can occur. There are a million great reasons for exercise, but activity will have to suffice, and I can manage my weight just fine with careful food selection. Then I have one less big grief on my mind. I'll take it.

You can get through all of it! I am the laziest person in the world, and believe me, if I can do it, anyone can.
