Thank Yous

Friday, October 05, 2007

What the thought for the day did not address was that all our of blessings come from God - it's great to thank the "people" involved and send them thank you notes but what about him? I thank him every day and by doing a kindness to others we are showing our gratitude.


No Weight Loss BUT FANTASTIC Week

Sunday, September 30, 2007

This has been about the most fantastic week of my entire life and it is not over yet. I have not forgotten Sparks! I'm faithful with tracking my foods and doing some sort of cardio every single day - next week I really plan on getting back to cores. But it's just the timing in my life - everything has happened within a week and I am truly excited, happy and at peace. That doesn't happen often with me but God has been Good! This past Thursday I took my last night class at Gwyneedd - after devoting the biggest part of my time to classes and homework and neglecting myself, my house and my family for 2 1/2 years - I have earned my degree! I will continue on at Ursinus but not accelerated - this will take more time but not monopolize my life for another two years! That was awesome enough but it gets better. I have been a devoted Phillies fan since 1972 - I go every chance I get - I love them through the good and the bad - I LOVE the Phillies - anyone who knows me knows that first! I always get tickets to the last game of the season - today I was there when the PHILLIES won the National League EAST! It was so exciting - I am still on a cloud and I feel 20 pounds lighter (won't get a second opinion from my scale though!) On Friday I won a lottery on the Phillies web site and I got to buy three potential seats to the National League play off game #2 so on Thursday (one week after finishing school and the climax of this awesome week - I am going to my first ever play off game! I am so excited! It was easy to be good today and I hope to continue this attitude through the week. Thank you God for the good things in life!


It's Party Time

Thursday, September 27, 2007

No, I have not lost weight - I've been stuck at the same thing for two weeks now but it's my fault sort of. I have been so busy with these last few weeks of class, the two jury events we had to plan, contempt hearings, all of Brads sports and on and on and on that I have not worked out at all - Cardio is easy - I crave it! I have to do my gazalle several times a week and I love to go for short walks but work outs are tougher and I just couldn't get them in. Anyway - TONIGHT is my last class at Gwynedd - we're having a party and then we're going out to a club - the whole cohort - I don't think I'm going to be real good tonight - I deserve it - Right? Some one out there can tell me it's OK! Next week I rededicate myself and hopefully when I start classes at Ursinus the work load will not be as demanding. It's not accelerated! I am going to get my degree!!!!! Finally after all these years!


Autumn Pounds Will Fall!

Sunday, September 23, 2007

It has been a very tough week - next week will be just as bad - I refuse to weigh myself - I know I am not doing well. It's not that I don't try! Those little sabatoge demons are running rampid! They are everywhere! At work - the demons refuse me a lunch hour and add extra time to my work day. At home - family demons surround me with football, fall baseball - homework tutoring and my own final projects for my classes. Free time is non-existent - I squeeze in a few minutes here and there but not like I was doing a few weeks ago - my son - work out savy as he has become tells me "Mom, you have to be active to loose weight" My 16 year old knows what he is talking about - I wasn't loosing much - but I was loosing almost 1 pound a week. The demons didn't want that - eating healthy is of no concern to them - slowing my metabolism is what makes them happy - desk work, computer work, taxi service and sports spectator, tutor - if working out my brain helped me to loose weight - I'd be setting new records. But fall is here! Things quiet down, football ends, fallball ends I am sure I can regroup, restrategize and get back in sycn after this week. Until then I'll continue to eat healthy, drink my water and when the leaves start falling so will my weight. That's my goal and I'm sticking to it.


I'm In A Funk!

Thursday, September 20, 2007

Well, this week has been one for the books. I have been punching the clock all day long every day of the week. The appointments and commitments, projects, school work and school/sport commitments for Brad have hit one after another - tonight was the first night since Sunday that I sat down and watched TV - some Phillies some Burn Notice - no more than 1 1/2 hours total and today was the first all week that I did real exercise - 35 minutes on the gazelle. But today was no less stressful than any of the others. After busting my butt royally all week to be prepared for class and have an awesome project to hand in for our team - the professor let me down! I spent my lunch hour and the hour before class perfecting my final paper. Got to class - he showed a 1/2 hour video on Nike that was more product showcasing than teaching and then he told us we could leave! A one hour class, no teaching. He also said the teams who had received papers back with corrections could make the corrections so that everyone has a chance at 96% or above! The ones I have busted my butt for have all been 100's or one with extra credit! But I worked long and hard and went without sleep or lunches for them! I've busted my butt and he's giving away grades and he's not teaching! I was so angry when Ieft that I originally intended to go home and have one maybe two wine coolers (I don't drink!) instead I got home in time to take Brad to order his class ring (he was going to have to manage on his own at a school lunch 'cause I was suppose to have class 'til 10) I worked out and I watched my PHILLIEs. Is that making lemonade from lemons? Now I just have to get the rest of my life a bit more uncluttered and maybe I can get back to the very serious task of getting healthy and getting skinny.
