sorry all...

Thursday, February 06, 2014

I have been a super crappy partner lately.

im sorry!

Honestly I am down. Way way down.

This is partially bc its february 6....and I am still experiencing January's cycle which started on january 24. Yep. And my cycles have shortened... so according to my calendar... February's should start around the 15th.

Painful. Nauseated. Annoyed.

My dr and I have been exploring options for about 6 months.

It looks like one of the preferred methods of answers would be a uterine ablation. Which would decrease, if not completely stop, my periods.

sounds great right!!!

But wait... im only 29 years old and would no longer have the option to have kids.

Not saying I want more.... but not sure im ready to give up that option either.


Needless to say ive had a few things on my mind.... gained a few pounds.... :(

    Well don't give up girl!!! Think of how far you have come! All that hard work! Go to the grocery story buy healthy foods and start a new exercise. Whatever it takes to get yourself motivated!!!

I hope you do feel better. Don't know much about what you are going through but know stress/ not feeling good is not good because it's just plain hard! Just went through a little something myself and could not exercise and almost got side tracked.

Thinking of you and praying too. emoticon

    Out of whack cycles can be utter misery. Hope you and your doctor come to a solution that is right for you.

a year ago today

Sunday, February 02, 2014

American sniper chris kyle and chad littlefield were unexpectedly stolen from their families in a trgaic turn of events while both men were "doing what they do".

Both from my small hometown.

Today marks one year anniversary. Bradley Cooper has been making his way around town as they are filming the upcoming movie. Between those two facts...the entire town is in a state of recognition. I know today will be difficult for their families and keep them in our prayers as hopefully they celebrate the lives chris and chad touched today through the pain of what happened.

I also know the shooter and his family.

While I believe soooo many are quick to judge, let us remember that his family is also dealing with the terrible decision he made that day. While I absolutely do not sympathize for him in any way, he has parents, and a sister (that had to report him that day), and they are not only dealing with the community in mourning but have to also deal with the fact that the son they raised, in a normal and loving small town home, relentlessly took the lives of those around him.

Prayers to everyone involved.

Prayers that justice be served and the shooter never have opportunity to kill again.

Prayers that the families continue their campaign in carrying out chris and chads legacies.

Prayers that the town memorialize with grace.

To some its superbowl sunday

To others - its going to be a rough day.

    I have always said that there are at least three sides to every story. I try to listen to all of them before coming up with an opinion. Even then, I know it is mine alone.

side by side

I would encourage everyone to take photos thru this process!!!

I was feeling a bit down yesterday...somewhat defeated and simply unmotivated...

I have soooo far to go it seems and it also feels as tho I am at a plateau. I know I need to shake things up, shock some metabolism...honestly I need to eat more but the ocd kicks in and simply doesnt allow it without a battle.

So anyway...I put together this photo last night.... and I feel soooo good when I see it together. It will prob load sideways again... sorry!

    I took a multivitamin, faithfully, for over a month and didnt feel any different. I stopped and just started eating better.

    I gain lots of weight during my monthly cycle, I wouldn't stress too much. :)

I take a multivitamin because my doc recommended it, but honestly I don't really feel different for taking it. Your milage may vary.

    Not too shabby for eating cake and ice cream the night before! I would've probably gained 2 pounds not oz. You'll do great next week I know it!!!

a decent monday....

Monday, January 20, 2014

Well minus a bit of chaos at work (which is fairly normal in my field) I must say I had a decent monday.

Tomorrow I will be taking my gym clothes and working out on my lunch break assuming my motivation doesnt take a nose dive.

If I do it just right... 10 min to change. 30 min to work out and 20 min to shower and be back in my office.

It will be an art.

The fitness center has opened less than 100 feet from my office door... I can see it down the hallway and it is free for my enjoyment.

Yep. God just squished most of my excuses.


On a different note: (animal rights activists just hold your seats until the end please....and if u still want to yell at me, go for it)

anyone know how to catch wild cats?

Momma gets under our barn and has kittens. They dont come out for.months then they start to independent. By now they are threatened by any human interaction and instinctively attack most other animals...

we have a new group starting to come out. They tear up under the barn. Stink. And drive our dogs nuts... not to mention the kids are afraid of them.because they bite. Which is the last thing we need.

We used a possum trap bated with tuna. Trapped one but she was psycho cat... as we were transferring her from trap to cage she got away from me...after she bit me.... and now they will not go near the trap...

I need to catch these blame cats so we can call the lady that picks them up. She comes and takes them.out to her land.where they can be as wild as they want.

If I call animal control, the city pound will put them down.

Any ideas?

    Ok I had a similar issue. Call animal control and they will provide you with cages. Now you can either try to find them good homes after you catch them, release them together like in a old folks trailer park ( they got kind hearts and might feed them )LOL, or call the animal control to come pick them up.

I released some down the road and then turned some in because they were multiplying like crazy. I know that sounds mean but which is worse stopped it from happening or having starving cats running around all the time.
I think it's humane to try to end the cycle they are just doing what they know.

There was like 22 total!!!
