and im back again

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Hello everyone, I'm home! Got home at 9:00 to a house full of garage sale stuff. I thought we would be home Thursday and I would have a day in between to deal but I had to jump right in. Got up at 6, and hosted the sale till about 3.

I ate crap all day, doughtnuts, teriyaki bowl, pizza. Whatever was easy, it went in my mouth.

I feel so crappy. Hard to believe I used to eat like that all the time!!!!

Tonight, I made a grocery list and meal plan for the week at least until Thursday when we leave AGAIN to go to medford Oregon for a race.

My pants are tight ( think they have been talking to cellista's pants) and I'm so uncomfortable and I am so afraid to get on the scale tomorrow. But it is Sunday and I will face the damages. Rememeber we agreed to meet on Sundays?

So I will deal with it, and move on.

I will save my musings for tomorrows check in blog.

    Have fun in Oregon, but be careful, our weather causes clothing to shrink! We had been gone all weekend and made poor eating choices. We have done that from time to time on weekend outings, but as we get older we have found we needed fabulous deserts like Maalox! "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" has never been truer!

    When you are tired it is very easy to grab whatever is around to eat. Don't beat yourself up.

    OK, you screwed up, you're a horrible person, you will break the scale when you step on it, Stitchy will ignore you, Frank will never visit your side of the bed again!

WRONG! You were tired, you ate a little too much! The world is still turning, your family still loves you, even your scale will forgive you! Now, forgive yourself! emoticon

    Of all the things I want to do the day after I return home from a road trip, I can guarantee you that "have a garage sale all day" is NOT in the top 10. I am tired just thinking of it. It is no wonder you ate crapola all day - when I am tired, my cravings for junky food goes up, and my willingness to eat well goes way down. I think it is my body and brain protesting the lack of rest. I hope you have some rest time built in between now and your next trip. Do you have big plans for Sunday? Snuggling with Stitchy is on the agenda, I bet.

    It is so easy to just grab something when you are busy - and not to mention that you have just returned home and didn't have time to shop first.
Forgive yourself and move forward. I have faith in you!!

    I gained some in Tahoe even though I did cook pretty healthy for myself. Tomorrow is a new day.

Glad you are home safe and hope you enjoy your upcoming trip to the race in Oregon.

We spent the day at the hospital...MIL fell and shattered her ankle. :(

    I remember a saying to HALT-never get too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired. It makes us vulnerable. And I'm sure you were tired after getting home late and jumping into this first thing this morning. It's one day. It's over. I know you'll move on from here. emoticon

turn the heat around.....

Thursday, July 12, 2012

(Now you are going to hear the Gloria Estafan song all day!!!)

I get a few hours to myself today! Frank is going to check on our employees and be a boss for a few hours and I get to do what I want!

I can go gambling, lay around my room and play on my tablet, make some work calls,


I can go to grab something to eat, and check out the gym and the hot tub.

I think I will do that and he will meet me back here for lunch and a few hours by the pool.

(Then maybe find a slot machine who will be good to me!)

Have a good day, peeps!

    *giggle* last time I was in Vegas in a hotel gym, some dude tried to pick me up. I'm not exactly pickup age, size, or marital status, so I was kinda weirded out. Then he wouldn't take no for an answer and security had to come escort him out - which was when I found out that the gym was wired with cameras and they'd been watching the whole thing. Then they stayed around to chat and informed me that nobody ever uses the hotel gym except an occasional businessman so they'd been watching my whole workout. O...K...So my Vegas hotel gym experience is forever embedded in my memory! I hope yours is simply fun, refreshing, and energizing.

Too much booze.
Too much heat.
Too much salty food.

I wanna go home! I'm sick of it here. I want to go home and cook my own food.and see my dog.

I am doing OK overall but doing the best I can in circumstances not in my control is wearing very thin!

We are gonna a be home Friday then I am leaving for a race in Medford, Oregon next Thursday. Gah!!!

Hanging in. Hope you are too!

    Travel is very challenging - I love it but I find it harder and harder to recover my balance after each trip, even those lasting a few days - clearly I need a new strategy. I hope today is fun and restful and less salty and boozy! I was thinking about you and I thought "I bet she misses Stitchy like crazy, and vice versa" and then I read this blog. That will be a sweet reunion. emoticon

Did I really just go for a brisk 20 minute walk while everyone was eating breakfast Bacon sandwiches? Did I mention I'm in las Vegas and it is 101 right now?

Did I really drink 2 bottles of water before 11 am?

Is my mojo coming back?

Stay tuned. I feel super hero Jan making her return!
