It seems like I run out of time every day before I get everything done, I think I must really waste my time, probably being on the computer. LOL
Last night I was really tired & just went to bed after work, took a short note then got up & had some soup, then back to bed. Today I feel much better more energy & ready to "clean" & decorate the house. I'm tired of all the "junk" I have accumulated over the years, ready to clean it out & hopefully make some money in the process.
* Drink 8 glasses of water
* Work on people's taxes - so I can get paid
* 10 Minutes or more if I feel like it of exercise
* Record everything I eat!

Ok, first I would like to say "THANK YOU" to everyone that stopped by & took the time to leave me a comment on my last blog. Some were really long, so I know it took you some time to comment & all had wonderful advice but the best advice I got was just knowing you took the time give me some encouragement.
I just got back from visiting my Mom & saw how much her health as deteriorated & realize that will be me if I don't make changes. I see her giving up & not wanting to even trying to get better. She gets very angry when we all try to talk to her, so I finally told her it was up to her, we can't do it for her, when she wants our help let us know. I will still send her daily positive messages but I won't bug her to come up to live by me so I can help her. She seems to be content just existing. She really helped me see what I'm doing to myself, hopefully.
Thanksgiving is over,Christmas in 24 days, so I have made a decision to start with small goals every day & most important of all write them down,put them on my computer & fridge so I will see them. Not just put them in Spark People where I only see them when I get on my blog but in writing every where I can see them, maybe I can get in a habit of little changes.
Today's goals - nothing really big:
Start by writing down my daily plan of things to get done!
Do at least 10 minutes of exercise!
Drink 8 glasses of water!

Once again it has been several days since I last posted a blog, for some reason I think if I don't write about it then I don't have to worry about it. Wrong, the weight just keeps going the wrong way no matter what I do & if I don't get it under control, I'm really not going to like what the doctors says next. She said very clearly, if I continue the way I am, next blood test is going to be dropping the word "PRE" off from diabetic.
I've tried the challenge teams, they haven't worked, tried meeting with a friend (they quit on me, so I quit), writing about it, talking about it but I guess in all reality I'm just "NOT" doing it!
Why can't I quit eating the wrong food?
So why is it not sinking in?
Why can't I get off of my "butt" & move it?
Why can I tell everyone else what to do but not do it my self?
I can't seem to find the answers to any of these questions!!
I really need to write down my goals along with the motivations sayings & put them all over my room, maybe if I see them everyday several times, it will kick in. I'm determined to find my way to get back to taking care of myself, I have to!

Life isn't getting any easier, it seems like I never have enough time to do the things I want to do by the time I do the things I have to do. Somehow I need to learn how to organize my time to do the best I can to fit in everything. I can even seem to fin d time to exercise, however, I know if it was high on my list I would find a way. Judging by the way my weight is going up, I have to figure this out. The eating is ok but the exercise is not as good as it should be. I think at this point in time, I have to find a way to increase what I was doing. I'm just not sure how to motivate myself, I'm just not sure how. I even took time to try to find some motivational quotes to see if they will help, I figure I have nothing to lose at this point except maybe weight!
“I don’t regret the things I've done, I regret the things I didn't do when I had the chance.”
“Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.” – Les Brown
“One of the most important keys to Success is having the discipline to do what you know you should do, even when you don't feel like doing it.”
“No one is going to hand me success. I must go out & get it myself. That’s why I’m here. To dominate. To conquer. Both the world, and myself.” -

I hate it when I can't seem to find time to do the things I really want to do & I know they will benefit me! Why is it we can find time for everyone but ourselves? I have not even had time to get on Spark to do what I really want to do.
My mom has been very ill the last few weeks & was told she had Stage 4 COPD & A Fib with her heart. She is taking it very hard & keeps asking , "Why does God keep dumping on me?" I try to tell her she needs to have strengthen & believe that God doesn't give us more than we can handle but to her it's just a bunch of words. Then she told me the other day, she really wanted to learn how to pray. I told her there really isn't a right way, just open your mouth &start talking, try not to be selfish but ask him to give you the strength you need to get through this. We all try to give her advice but we keep forgetting she is the one in charge & she has to make some decision herself. So I finally figured it out, that all I can do is listen & be there for her.
Then I go to the doctor as a follow up from my little stay at the hospital. New doctor so I wanted a new opinion. She was very good, listened a lot & ask lots of question & then informed me that I had a wake up call & it was up to me to make changes to my life style. Like I didn't already know this! She said you are pre-diabetic & if you don't make changes with weight, diet & exercise you will be diabetic within the next year. Not news I wanted to hear but now she's right it's up to me to make changes.
So I'm going to give it a try to record everything again, exercise more & make the changes I need to make & this is the place to do it! I'm the only one that can make these changes & since I really hate needles, I will do this!
