I Want Some CANDY....

Monday, June 18, 2012

because I am stressed. I hate when this feeling comes over me. My daughter's tuition is due, my school loan payments are due, I just acquired a new platform that I am unfamiliar with and 12 new projects to boot, college tours for my youngest daughter and NO ADULT vacations in SITE!!!!

I am drinking water, I am working out, I am even breathing, I have even tried sugar free chocolate (that's the biggest joke on the planet)..not helping! The problem is sugar and carbs have always been my escape in times of crisis. That's why I am here. I'll go for a long walk and if I still want candy, then I have a teeny tiny bit.. emoticon

    Glad you resisted, soror!
Wish I read this before those 2 ritas I consumed.
I probably would've reconsidered.
Thank God there's a fitness center in this hotel.

    I am stressed too and trying not to eat as welll. My stress is not like yours but ironically enough, we are both planning to do the same thing. I am going to pray and doJillian to work it out and if that doesn't help then I am going to pray some more and go to sleep. Things always seem brighter in the morning. I never had sugar free chocolate, my taste buds have always rebelled at the sheer thought of it. Maybe you can take a mini vacay with the upcoming holiday next month. I do this sometimes when I need a break and trust me, it helps! So hopefully tomorrow or tonight you will be in better spirits. Hang in there! emoticon emoticon

It's been almost a year...

Monday, June 11, 2012

since my last blog and the irony is, it's been almost a year since I was truly committed to my health and fitness.

I've had fitness bouts, fitness spells, fitness moments but the FIRE - the SPARK, had definitely flickered out. I could blame is on "LIFE", but as long as I live "LIFE" is going to happen. So my choices are to deal with life Fit and Fabulously or Flabby and Frustrated. Being FIT goes beyond the physique; it's a mentality. So I am stepping out of the matrix.

Free your mind and the rest will follow...

    As long as you are committed in spirit and body, then you can do it. Life gets in the way for us all and the journey to get smaller is a war not a battle. You will lose some battles some days but as long as you are trying then you still have a chance to win the WAR which is the victory! You can do it, I've stumbled and had off days and weight gain but I don't give up and neither should you. Come on, God is on your side and you got THIS! emoticon emoticon

White Water Rafting ~~~ What Was I Really Thinking!!!

Saturday, June 11, 2011

I think I may be having a slight mid-life crisis. I have never been adventurous!! Social yes, adventurous, not so much!!

I am starting to have these INDIANA JONES moments (enlisting in all manners of foolishness)~~~at least until it's time to go. I have been up peaking emoticon around since 3am trying to figure out how to keep myself inside that DANG RAFT!! emoticon.

Oh least its an excellent workout and should I fall out, maybe I can get some strength training points clinging to whatever I can until someone comes and saves me emoticon

    A friend of ours fell out. Right in front of the place where they take the pictures. Very funny seeing her legs straight up in the air and the horrified look on her kids face. All ended well. Have fun.

    Tell you what, I'll go and do it for the first time and you can read my blog, ok? No I didn't think so, for some reason that is one thing I have always wanted to do and have managed to live in a lot of states without any.
have a great time and know that someone is wishing they were doing it too.

Thursday, June 02, 2011

All of my friends are gone...all of them!!! I am so ANGRY and ANNOYED I could scream...I'm trying not cry, but I can't stop...It was wrong just WRONG!! I should be greatful that I still have my job but I can't get past my ANGER.. There was no reason, no justification nothing. I pull up this morning the police are here...It was like a CRIME SCENE!!

    Thanks Ladies for your support. Moral is still low, but it's improving daily. There is a lot of fall out, people are still resigning...but that is par de course.

    Wow, it makes you wonder what your employer is thinking about these people who did nothing wrong except get laid off? if it isn't hard enough to lose your job, you get confronted with police. You can be thankful for your job but you don't have to like what is happening to the other people. I am praying for all of you all... it is stressful even if you are still there... people forget that sometime

    So Sorry to hear about this. We haven't had the police come when people are laid off, sometimes HR comes but only if they think there will be a problem.

Sorry to hear too that all of your friends are gone. emoticon

    Why do some folks always look for the worst. If anything they needed someone to show concern. I'm so sorry to here this. That's exactly why I try not to wallow in self-pity. There's always someone in worst condition. I'm sending a little prayer up that they will have wisdom and patience to stand strong as God works to meet all of their needs. emoticon emoticon
