Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.
- Bill Cosby
This was in my daily inspiration today. It is funny because yesterday as I was having my weekly heart to heart with myself I was saying how I should just laugh and move on. lfe is what we make of it. If you are serious all the time then you may never enjoy that moment of release, the moment when a good laugh is way better then a good cry.
Saturday I spent the day with my daughter and grandson who is two and ahalf. Now mind you my grandson is smart, talks like a grown up. As we are in the goodwill he spots a pink, barbie lawnmower. Now lawn mowers for some strange reason hold a special fasination for him. He had to have this one. He pushed it all over the store, proud as all get out. Didn't bother him one bit that it was a barbie mower. My husband puts a boa wrap around him, and a pink hat on his head, he comes running to me all dressed up with this mower and his "outfit" on and is so proud. I laughed so hard I thought I would wet myself. I wasn't laughing at him, I was laughing with him. He was so happy.....then we go to dairy queen because he insists on icecream. As he is eating his icecream he informs me about his dog petey and how he eats cat poop, I again laughed so hard. Children are brutally honest.
Now I know my daughter could of crawled under the bench then and there. But I just "really" and he turned back to his icecream. Of course as he turned around I laughed into my hand till tears came down my face.
My point to all this is that I felt the best I have felt in a long time. I really didn't want to go. but once I was out it was awesome. We had a blast, I laughed till I cried and life was good again.
We have to laugh on this journey, if we don't we may cry. This is no easy task, it isn't overnight, and no pill is going to make this work. It will come from us, inside, sometimes very deep inside. I for one intend to meet this challenge head on. One step, day, and week at a time.

Well friends today is my weigh in day, I would love to come here and tell ya all about how great I did....But alas I had a setback....half a pound set back to be honest. But It was due to my bedrest and lack of movement for a few days.
I"m good with this though, kinda new this was going to happen. But guys this is only a minor setback. I'm ready to kick it up a notch this week. Well maybe not a notch but i'm going to kick it up. this week I think I will concentrate on my exercise. That seems to be where i'm lacking. Not slacking, lacking. I do get in some exercise but to be honest I know it could be a lot more.
So my goal this week is movement, pure and simple.
I'm going to get there one step, day, and week at a time.

Today is a new and bright day. I have had a wonderful week and even with a bit of surgery i'm still sitting pretty. I can't say if the scales will move, and to be honest since my week was spent in the bed the first two days of it, I really don't expect to see any. But if I do i'm truly blessed this week.
I'm feeling wonderful after my results from the doctor and i'm so blessed to be here. This week and the last months have given me new reason to feel blessed. As I sit here typing and thanking god that my "abnormal cells" could of been so much worse and that I was told I didn't have to worry and that I won't have to go back to the docs for six whole months, and I should be starting with a clean slate when I do. That is awesome.
I'm healing great, able to move and function. Been at work for two days and got caught up on so much. Now I can only hope this inspiration spreads to my weight loss. I've passed the same number three times already and that kinda worries me. Not in the sense that I can't get there, but that it is way too easy to get there. IF you know what I mean. One wrong step and all that we have worked for could be gone. We have to take this day by day and we also have to know this is a lifetime commitment. If your not ready for that step, stop now, don't go any further....your just wasting your time and much needed energy.
Well today is a new day. I"m off to get it started. I'm going to get my exercise in, have my weigh in tomorrow and what will be will be. God bless each of you. I will get there one step, day, and week at a time.

Yesterday was my first day back at work. It was so busy. We have this crud going around, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea...lots of sick people and for a tech like me job security....sorry guys.
I was so busy I didn't have time to sit down at all. Not that that was a problem. No cramping, or anything. I even got outside during my lunch and walked two miles. It was wonderful. I'm so glad to be back and once again able to exercise. Some may not understand that one but i don't sit around well. I have to be moving.
So far this week i'm getting my goals met....even had a 483 cal differential yesterday. I love sparks new chart for calories in and calories out. awesome.
I'm off now to begin my friday. I have to work later this morning and i'm going to enjoy another cup of joe and relax for a bit before my day begins.
I'm going to get there one step, day, and week at a time. afterall we can't move that fast or we will trip up.

Well i'm off to work today. I kinda can't wait. Been up since very early. Sorry not one to sit around for long. I'm a doer and I need to do.
I have succeeded in two whole days of no snacking uncontrollably and I have to tell you it is awesome, the feeling of empowerment. Some whom don't have this problem won't understand, but for me this is like an addiction. I'm trying to curb the instinct to munch. Last night I actually had to think about it, and talk myself out of it.
today is a new day, i'm ready to succeed yet again. I will keep this blog short as i'm off to get in a bit of elliptical before work. nothing too strenuous but enough to say I did it.
I will succeed one day, one minute, and one step at a time.
