RETREAT OVER

Sunday, August 15, 2010

Well....am back home again after a truly awesome weekend.....
There was 22 woman there yesterday with 16 of us staying over night.....
We had our Pastors wife come and speak to us yesterday morning which was brilliant and then after luch we had a time of sharing then afternoon tea followed by wine & cheese followed by an amazing roast dinner.....
After dinner we all played "who wants to be a millionare" for a while then some left and the rest of us chilled or went to bed.....
After breakfast this morning we had communion then prayed for everyone thta was there followed by lunch then home.....

Althouhg I was very late to bed I have to admit that I do feel rested and a little recharged and I will do my best to keep my diary at a managable level for the next few weeks so i don't get stressed and loose my energy........

I truly could have stayed another few days...that would have been awesome......

Nevermind it was totally worth going and I amlooking forward to next years retreat already.....lol

We will have a BBQ get together with our husbands going as well in November so that is something to look forward to.......

The greatest thing about the weekend was the fact that i stayed within my goals both days....Saturday I had already tracked and that was accom;plished however what i had tracked for breakfast and lunch today wasn't available so i was wrapped when i got home and redid my tracker to discover that i was still within everything with the choices I had made..... emoticon

    Congratulations on staying within your goals. I doubt I could have been that disciplined.

I'm glad that the retreat went well.

END OF ANOTHER WEEK

Friday, August 13, 2010

Have been so busy that I forgot to do my blog yesterday....not like me at all....

Have had a very full week with Hubby....
He does have deep vein thrombosis and although all the extra running has worn me down some what I am very glad that this has been picked up and is now being treated.....
He has had more blood tests today and a change of medication and wil have another test on Monday......
I chose to cancel most of my week as I couldn't so everything however did get to work one day only to find nothing had changed...in fact I think some of the situations I left 3 weeks ago have actually digressed some what....never mind....I amnot super woman and can't do everything.....

Am away to a womens group retreat and am really looking forward to it as it will be a chance to rest....

Am really amazed at how all this extra pressure and strees has NOT snet me running to the fridge or the pantry at all this week and how I have followed the menu's I planned and how great that is making me feel.....for me in amongst everything it is a real achievement and I am very proud of myself.....have my menu's done for next week and am going to stick to them .....

YAY....out of every stressful situation there is always good stuff that we can learn from and hold on to...

Peace and Blessings

    I've been diagonosed with DVT, for the second time. It is fairly easy to treat, one of the blood thinners(I'm on coumadin). Exercise can help, too. For me, the worst part is that I can't eat as many green leafy vegetables, the ones I love the most. Just keep an eye on it.

WEIGHT IN TODAY....OMGosh

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Well as the title of my blog says today was my weight in day....haven't weight in for over 2 weeks and with being away for most of that time was fully expecting to see and increase as that is how I am feeling......

Well....as people regularly say...."things are not always as they seem" that is so true today for me.....the scales were down 100 grms.... Thankyou Lord
Now I know that is not a great deal however for me at the moment it is the absolute encouragement that i need to keep me going......with everything else that is going on around me the only thing I have actually kept a handle on has been my tracker and sticking to it and it has paid off.....I will be all good with this now for the next week and the things happening around me will still continue to happen.....and happen at a fast rate however I do not have to fold under it....I can keep a handle on my eating NO MATTER what else is going on im my world.....

This weight in today has so encouraged me I trust that there will be some encouragement in this blog for others to keep going....as I learned today.....If i keep on keeping on I will see the results that comes from it.....

Have a blessed day....

SUNSHINE

Monday, August 09, 2010

today is beautiful and sunny although not sure how warm it is....will find out very soon when I go for a walk.....

am very tired however i know what is going to change that and just not getting the time to rest..

Have come to a place though...if I have to cancel things to achieve allthis for hubby then so be it and I really can't do a lot about it....it's called priorities and I guess that that could be the greatest thing I teach any of these students on their journey....especially if they see me living by it...
I guess that this is a good revelation and something that I can work on instead of feeling trapped and overloaded.....and I should be thankful that i am doin well with my tracker and sticking to it....that is a real bonus as this is ussually the first thing that suffers when pressure arises....

All good I am sure...
All fo now...
Blessings....
