So I dont blog often...

Sunday, November 04, 2012

but I was given the task by Spark Coach to write about how I waste time. One way is on the computer. I love playing mindless games like Slotomania, my current favorite and Spider solitaire. I also waste time here on SP (even though it is helpful) and facebook. While these sites help my healthy lifestyle goals in some ways, I can easily spend hours on the computer, avoiding other things. I am often tired because I have fibromyalgia and the computer and tv take my mind it especially when I have insomnia or am in pain. Another way I waste time is by looking for things I have lost. I am a procrastinator and always doing things last minute which tend to make me forget what I did. Plus I put off things like housekeeping and then cant find things which just make it harder for me to get all the things done that need doing. And of course things like exercise and planning my food are near the top of the list of things that dont get done. So as soon as I finish typing this I am going to go wash my dishes, make my lunch for tomorrow and prepare dinner for tomorrow since Mondays are hectic days for me. Then I will spend a few minutes on work I have to do for work. (unless I procastinate and dont get it done! but hopefully since I wrote it here for anyone to see, I will be forced to do it.

    Oh boy - I could have written your blog because I have some of the same problems with wasting time. How are you doing with the goals you listed here?

Long time no blog!!

Sunday, February 06, 2011

So I last blogged in April of 09!! I talked about how scary getting near to goal was. Well I made that goal in November of '09. It was a wonderful feeling to be at a healthy goal weight for the first time since I was 16 years old (that over 40 years ago) I have maintained that goal weight (157) withing 3 pounds ever since. It is as hard or even harder than trying to lose it. At least when you need to lose...especially if you need to lose a lot... people 'get it" but when you are at a healthy trim body weight, people dont get why you still wont eat this or that or do this or that. But I plug away one day at a time. I need to continue doing everyday the same things I did to get here if I want to stay here. And stay here I want. I love how my new body looks, feels and works. So for me, I continue to try to make the best food choices to feed my BODY, not my emotions. I have a strong support system in place now to support me emotionally when I am going through things (as life is always throwing "things" in our path that challenge us) and I have a strong spiritual life to remind me I am not alone and I dont have to do any of it. God handles it all. (as long as I allow him to)

And one of these days, I need to update my photo. that was almost 2 years ago. My beautiful granddaughter is over 2 1/2 now and only a year old in the picture! one thing at a time! (he he he)

Getting close and its scary!

Monday, April 20, 2009

Well I sure dont blog very often, but sometimes I just need to get my thoughts down on "paper" as they say.

On Friday I went to my weigh in and the woman who weighed me said I was down 4.4 lbs in a week. I thought she was mistaken so I had to check out the written numbers myself...NOPE it was true...somehow I had managed to lose 4.4 lbs in a week. OK so what is the problem you are asking. I should have been jumping up and down, happy as a lark... but instead I stood there with my mouth open and my stomach turning. I am in the homestretch now of this very long journey to health. I am so close now it is scaring me. In the past if I were to lose a bunch of weight I would quit before I got to goal. I KNOW I am not quitting this time, but it is still very scary!! OK so if I .... no make that WHEN I finally get to my goal... how do I KEEP it off??? This of course is something I have never never done. As it is I am in uncharted territory with keeping weight off. I have been on this journey for over 2 years now. I am down 170 lbs... which is more than I currently weigh!! I know God will continue to bless me as long as I continue to cooperate with Him and let HIM run my life!

Update on my husband. He is STILL in rehab.... Can you believe it? He went into the hospital on March 1 and was moved to rehab on the 11th So this has been going on for 7 weeks and although he is doing better, we still have no idea WHEN he will be coming home. But God will get me through this... one day at a time. THY WILL not mine... be done!

    It is ok to be a little scared you are treading in uncharted territory, the good news is you are in uncharted territory. YOU made it, YOU did it. YOU are going to be ok. YOU did not just lose weight , YOU changed your life, from not so good habits to habits that are making you healthy and giving you the quality of life YOU deserve.
Good job!

Life on Life's Terms

Thursday, March 19, 2009

I have been offline for a few weeks and it is making me crazy. Right now I am writing this from school while waiting for part 2 of Parent/Teacher conferences to start.

My dh has been very very ill. He was in the hospital in intensive care for a week and a half. he was even intubated for a few days. He is getting better and right now is in a rehabilitation center. Who knows how long he will be there. This has been going on since March 1!

My food has been pretty good despite all this nonsense thanks be to God who strengthens me in all things. I k now He will get me thr ough this. NO MATTER WHAT!

My daughter has come up from Florida (I live in NY) to help me care for my 86 year old m othere who has alzheimers. My plate is full but I am being fed by God and my friends so I dont need to eat although at times I WANT to.

Anyway, I just wanted to let anyone who might have been wondering where I have been what is going on in my little corner of the world. I accept life on life's terms and am taking it one day at a time, one hour at a time when necessary.

love and peace
Ann
