2014 Reflection

Sunday, December 07, 2014

This year has been very stressful in so many areas. My health has paid the price..weight has increased dramatically, fitness level has decreased, chloresterol levels highest ever, knee pain when walking (never before)!

I need to puy ME back on the priority......clients CAN wait, there ARE times I CAN exercise. NOW, is the time, NOW is my time!

Rocky Horror Picture Show Advice needed

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Went to RHPS tribute at Halloween Nights event at Universal Studios last night...my hubby 55, me 52 both realized we never had watched the movie..so I checked movie theatre at Citywalk and movie is showing tonight at midnight.

We are going and taking our 15 yr old son, all three virgins :). if you have watched the movie you'll understand that insert:)! The concierge at hotel said...this is the town to watch it in...many in attendance will dress up for the movie, bring props, pull people from audience...the full movie experience:o!

Any memories from SP movie fans, suggestions, warnings?!

    oh fun :) I love RHPS, to the extent that I go to our local saturday midnight showing in costume on occasion. My 16th birthday party was rocky horror themed, so I bet the 15 year old might enjoy it. Looking at the date of your post - you've already gone, so how was it?

    I hope you had fun! I can't really imagine seeing that movie with my kid, but she's only 11, maybe I'll feel different when she's 15!!!

So much fun, such a crazy experience.

    Take a poncho for raining rice and water or a hard hat for toast and rice throwing. Just sit back and have fun!

The Duck and the Dolphin

Friday, September 27, 2013

Arrrived in Orlando yesterday afternoon..staying till Monday night..staying at Hard Rock Hotel at Universal...attending Halloween Horror Nights this weekend..so cool for Halloween holiday fans...Walking Dead is theme this year..my hubby, son and I love the series...

My favorite thing during a fall visit to the hotel is swimming early in the morning at the pool..the water temp. is cooler..no kids are in it when is just opens, so I can lap swim without dodging anyone..had a first this morning..

As I was swimming, noticed something on top of the water, raised my head to see a duck swimming right in front of me...and we swam to the side of the pool together...I'm 52 and a swimmer all my life..gave me a big smile to start my Friday...my husband said the dolphin and the duck together in their element..

Chocolate milk and oreos

Sunday, July 21, 2013

Chocolate milk and oreos
Chocolate milk and pop tarts
Chocolate milk and chips ahoy

These last few months whenever I am late leaving the office...10-11pm..I have been in the habit of stopping at the convenience store (aka junk food warehouse)...and stuffing down these sweet, sugar filled items for the 20 minute drive home!

Hider pig symptoms:
Am I reeeally hungry at 10:30? No!
Are they good for me? No!
Am I eating in secret? Yes
Do I hide the evidence before going home! Yes

My change for the coming week is to eliminate this habit..only done due to stress, tired..comfort food craving..emotional eating...no more, no more, no more...

I control the choices of food coming into my body...these choices are toxins for me..this behavior has to be stopped,,,,,,period.....

You've opened the door to change. I had the same trouble with ice cream.
Then I met someone thin at a dinner in a restaurant. She ordered fish and broccoli as a side. After the meal she hadn't touched the broccoli yet, so she pick up a piece and ate it like finger food. During the meal she said "I don't eat potatoes."
That left an impression on me.

I thought: I can say I don't eat ice cream or I don't eat oreo cookies or I don't drink chocolate milk. I don't say it out loud so as not to let other people know, but I think it to myself and it has changed my attitude so much I'm having great success.

Make sure you find something non food to comfort you and treat yourself to destress
You need to be gentle to yourself and take care. emoticon

    The truth will set you free. Secrets keep you sick. Tell your family! Come clean with your friends! You've made a nice start here - now take it to your real world - and tell the people who love you. That will hold you accountable the next time you think you want to stop at the junk warehouse. Best of luck to you. You can do it. . . I know you can! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon You are stronger than an Oreo!! Maybe listening to book on cd would be something relaxing to do on your drive home?

You are not alone in eating and hiding the evidence. Been there done that. I've got "no hidden food" as one of my goals.
