Yet another mindless blog....

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Hello!

Although I nothing earth shattering to share, I thought I would continue on with my blog writing, for my own benefit, it not for anyone elses.

I've been walking more this week which is really helping my mental health. I guess it is helping my physical health as well but that is something you don't really notice on a day to day basis.

Speaking of mentally, does anybody else find that the weather really affects their state of mind? It does nutty things to me! Whenever we have rain, drizzle, and fog I would just as soon stay in bed or at least indoors with the lights on and the curtains closed.

That being said, I was thrilled that the past few days have finally turned cooler and the sun has come out! We still don't have any snow.....unless you count the 1/2 inch that is lying on the grass. I've been walking wearing my sneakers rather than warm winter boots because of the warm temperatures. Sneakers are much more comfortable and allow me to walk the dogs and me further!

Funny dog story....well, not so funny for poor Maddy. Yesterday we went our normal route and met up with a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Blaze. Blaze is about two and is WILD! Well, I think Lou now has a boyfriend because didn't they have fun chasing each other and knocking into one another. Of course, they are both 60+ pounds so it was kind of even.

Enter, our ferocious ball of fluff, Maddy who eagerly joined in the play. All was going well until Blaze slipped, crashed into Lou who knocked Maddy off his feet. The expression on Maddy's face was priceless. He ran up to me, and looked at me as if to say "Mom, did you see what they did to me" before he took off racing again. Needless to say, they both crashed when they got home and were well-behaved doggies all night. LOL.

I hope all of you are doing well on your journeys. I will try to get in touch with each of you over the weekend.

Susan

P.S. Thanks to those of you who suggested some great organizing tips! I checked out the FlyLady website...wow!

    Cute doggie story! Dogs bring so much joy to our lives, don't they?

I absolutely notice the connection between the weather and my mood. I grew up on Vancouver Island where it rains ALOT. I never understood people's adversion to rainy weather until I moved to sunny Alberta. I couldn't believe how happy it made me to see the sun shining almost every day... even if it was -40C outside.

    Loved your blog. I didn't think it was mindless at all! I thought it was great. Full of insight into the joyous hearts of dogs, their fervor for a good romp and how easy they shake off a tumble. Thanks for sharing!

I like to think of rain as 'liquid sunshine' LOL
We need those cold gray days to appreciate the warm sunny days. I see gray days as 'cozy days', a good day to think of a warm fireplace and a dust cloth. Because I certainly don't want to dust when the sun is shining!
I want to be outside then. emoticon

    I often blog when I have nothing to say! Sometimes they turn out to be the best ones!

Most of the time the dogs only get to play with dogs their own size. But I do have one place I leave them who takes in big dogs, too. Oh, and our neighbor has a English Mastiff. Talk about hilarious comparisons!

Weather most definitely effects my mood. Hate gray! Part of why we didn't want to move back here!

Yes, I love that it's NOT RAINING! Even a smattering of snow during my walk is so much better than rain. And Leto loves it too because he gets to go outside! If it's raining, no matter if he has to pee, he'll look outside, turn around, give me the "why is it raining" look and come back in.

    Love doggie stories! The things that poor old Bendix got himself into.. When he was only two, he was full of fun and energy and loved to chase with other dogs at the off leash area. In particular, this one lab, a little smaller than he, but equally energetic, rough and tumble and they would be hitting each other like crazy , sending themselves rolling all over. It was quite spectacular to watch, wish we had a motion camera!! Then one day, the poor lab gets something up his nose and is snorting and sneezing and pawing his face. Bendix, seeing his prey had stopped, went full steam ahead and just slammed into him, and wouldn't you know, dislodged what ever was stuck up his nose, so they called him Dr. Bendix after that.
Weather sure does affect one. All this cold, dark and windy weather I have been getting just wants to make me hibernate!!
Here is to sticking to our programs regardless.

Getting my life organized....suggestions welcome!

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

Hello!

Just got back from a nice stroll with the dogs during which I did some more thinking. I think I should earn "brownie points" for all the calories I burn when I think too much.....ha!

Anyway, I have to confess that I'm chronically disorganized. My husband refers to me as the most disorganized-organized person he knows. I try to be organized but then life happens and it all goes out the window.

So, along with fanning the flames of my Spark, I am going to embark on trying to get myself organized. I'm going to approach it with the same game plan I did when I joined Spark. I'm going to take it slow and steady. I am teaching myself to always put my keys in the same spot when I come home. Same goes for my wallet and cell phone.

I think I'm so messy because a) we never had kids so we act like two teenagers and b) I was raised to be anal about any clutter that I rebelled. But now, I'm ashamed of myself.

Any ideas on setting up routines for housework, meal planning, laundry, etc.? I'm going to try to write down my plan and keep it out where I can see it. Maybe then life will seem a little less crazy.

I don't know what I would be like if I had children or worked full time?! Maybe, I'd be okay because then I would only have a set period of time to do stuff. Right now it feels like I spend half of my life cleaning up and there always seems to be a mess, of some sort, around.

Talk to you later!

Susan

    I was much more organized when I had kids in school & was working. Now, unemployed & empty nester, I tend to let things go a little more. I'm ok with it though. I grew up in a spotless home - and a little mess feels liberating. As to getting organized, I suggest getting a minute timer and 2-3 times a day just doing a 1 minute clean up. You'll be amazed by how much you can do with 60 seconds of concerted effort.

  Hi Susan!
I am the messiest person I know, but I'm also a big lister. I make lists (then I misplace them, so I make another). Actually I save them all in a folder on my desktop! I plan my menus a week in advance, and only pick up the things I need on Saturday morning (its amazing how much you don't overspend when you plan). I have a big box on my bookcase for bills, they may not be filed, but I know where they all are! And as for cleaning...I made a huge monthly list with columns and I just scratch off when I complete an item (something I learned from working at Reitmans)! Save the list on your computer and every month, print out a fresh one.
Best of luck Susan!!!!

    We have a lot of the same bad habits! I too rebelled against the ridiculous cleaning habits of my mother, and still have a messy bedroom. I have found that the more time I have, the less organized I am. My kids are grown now and I was much, much better when they were small and we had so many activities. The best thing I do is throw out things and take unused items to our church's Friendship house. I also pick one thing at a time and finish it, like cleaning out my closet and then move to the bedroom or junk drawer, etc. I also have a rule about going to the grocery store once a week (I hate the grocery store), so it forces me to make a meal plan and stick to it. Good luck - it's a new year!

    oh my Susan, you are talking to me again today. I was ALWAYS neat and tidy and had things in there place. I was 5 months pregnant with Rebecca when I had my gall bladder taken out and I was in the midst of packing to move into our new home when that happened so we ended up with many, MANY unmarked boxes. It seems that I have never got back into the organized position. Although those boxes have been long gone I find I am always trying to keep up and things never go back in their spot.
But what I try to do is take it one step at a time. Be it one cupboard, one box, one closet or one bag. It has to start in one spot and don't stop until it is done. Don't let yourself get side tracked...that happens to me alot...lol.
For meals I plan for two weeks, I make a list and I buy what is on the list and I cook what is on the menu for the day. This keeps it simple and keeps me on a budget. There will always be those days where something will get in the way of your plan but you just pick up the next day...same as sparking emoticon

Good luck my love because I do know how it feels. Also put a small table close to the door with a basket, you can drop all the essentials in there so you will always know where they are.

    Pick one chore each morning and get it done before the excuses and other things start happening to crowd it out. Put the most unpleasant chores first so they are out of the way and you enjoy your day.
I would be lost if I don't put my keys in the same spot. I have spent hours in my little apartment getting frantic looking for 'lost' things LOL. I do have a bad clutter going on with my desk most of the time, but other places are kept neat as I don't like looking for stuff -a strong motivator.
Most people find decluttering their lives and simplifying things really motivates the healthy lifestyle.
Good luck with it.

I don't have any concrete ideas for you.
I'm just trying to de-clutter something 15 minutes a day. If I go over that time limit; all is good. Less clutter = less mess.

We'll have to compare notes on this again next year same time to see how we've done. LOL.

Type II diabetes....am I doomed?

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Good evening!

Today was my first day back to work since December 21st, so I'm a bit tired tonight. Funny how that is, isn't it? I was up half the night again coughing and to cope I kept sipping on honey which probably put me in sugar overload! Ha!

Speaking of sugar, I had to take Mom to a diabetes clinic today as starting tomorrow she has to start taking insulin injections twice a day. She was first diagnosed 20 years ago and except for the first year, she did not make any lifestyle or dietary adjustments.

When we were talking to the nurse today, I found out that I have an increased risk of developing diabetes as well since both Mom and her sister had/have it. Plus, I'm overweight.....by a lot!

I was reading a newspaper article yesterday that stated that Newfoundland has the highest rate of diabetes in all of Canada and we are double the national average. That is scary!

So, what can I do? I guess I have to accept the family history but I can change my diet and lifestyle. I think I'm working on both of that now. I'm also exercising and trying to get my weight down to an acceptable range. Apparently, it has a lot to do with the circumference of your waist. I'm doomed....or am I?

The same nurse told me that the changes I am making are great. She also explained that I should be eating my fruit with meals rather than as snacks because the other foods help prevent spikes in blood sugar, Interesting.

Anyway, I'm not going to worry about it but I will make an effort to become more informed to see if I can beat the odds!

Thanks for reading! Still a balmy 5 degrees Celsius here!

    we have to do what we can to alter any chance of following the "family history" road. My mom and dad both had high blood pressure and they both got it under control with diet and exercise so they broke that cycle for themselves. Now I am doing what I can to not travel that same road.
And I totally get the stats because we always ate bread and sweets with every meal.
Good job on knowing what to do, now I bid you good luck on beating the odds. emoticon emoticon

    The best prevention is knowledge. You should join a diabetes team and get some good tips. They HAVE to live a healthy lifestyle if they want to live. Also, Sparks has numerous articles on it.
There is no turning back now, you just have to do it!

    The very balanced diet that diabetics need for optimal health would be good for all of us. It would seem to me like an excellent policy to go ahead and live as though you have already been diagnosed. Perhaps you can dodge that bullet AND maintain an optimally healthy lifestyle.

    Good for you for recognizing that you are not doomed! Diabetes also runs in my family. I have two brothers that have been diagnosed with it. The brother that was the most severe has done the best, he is able to regulate everything through diet. He decided that he has enough other health problems, he didn't want to also have the complications from diabetes. The second brother really tried but was not as motivated and he has pretty much given up and has decided that he can't do it. It is sad to see more complications come about because he quit. But we all have choices and it is up to each of us to decide for us alone. Good luck on your journey and may God be there with you to help guide your path!

Another challenge.....yipee!

Monday, January 03, 2011

I discovered a fun little challenge yesterday entitled Valentine's Day Sweeties Challenge 2011. I participated in my first challenge earlier in the fall that revolved around Halloween so I am excited to be involved with this one. I'm finding that I need these mini-challenges at least at this stage of my journey.

Week 1 has us recording our food. Now, I'm not big on that as I found it involved an incredible amount of time. Therefore, I'm just writing down what I'm eating on a piece of paper. I'm the type that will write it all down....even the half box of Kashi crackers I ate last night.....so it does help me keep accountable. I don't want to repeat the Kashi binge tonight so already I'm more aware.

Walked in the rain tonight! Who would have thought you could walk in Newfoundland in January with a fleece jacket and sneakers! Wow....what is happening to our climate! It is scary when you think about it.

Must go and get the house tidied up a bit. Back to work tomorrow for me and back to school tomorrow for John. Things will get back to normal hopefully.

Susan

P.S. Lou is doing fine! One of the Vet Techs dropped by our house today to have an "unofficial" look at her. Maddy is doing well too but was sad today as one of the neighbour Poms died suddenly in his Mom's arms.

Food tracking is essential to getting your calories accurately, not to mention getting your nutrients in the right ratio to fuel your metabolism to make your exercise pay off. I never would have lost weight without tracking my food and fitness. I am also keeping it off with careful tracking too

It's all about ME!

Sunday, January 02, 2011

Happy New Year to all of my old SparkFriends and to my newest ones!

If you've been reading my blogs lately you will notice that I haven't been my normal upbeat self. In fact, it has been over a week since I've walked my dogs, drank my 8 glasses of water, felt normal. Do you see a trend here? I do! So I'm officially declaring that 2011 is going to be all about me!

This self-centred attitude flies in the face of everything I've been brainwashed into believing. I was raised to never consider my personal needs and to always think of the other person first. Well, this made me a "nice" person, I was and have been searching to find out who I really am...deep down.

I've so lacked in the self-confidence department that I've failed to ever decorate my house in the fears that others won't like it, I wouldn't wear makeup because heaven forbid, I thought something of myself. My poor mom still believes that using hair conditioner is a sign of vanity and I won't begin to tell you how she feels about skin care, let alone makeup.

2010 brought along a lot of changes in my life, most of which were self-made. I started blowdrying my hair (another sign of vanity), experimenting with makeup, (a big no-no!), wearing clothing colours other than neutrals (don't want to draw attention to oneself), etc.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love my mother and I think she has her own issues that are making her into the woman she is today. But now, thanks to my self-journey, I'm starting to realize that they are her problems and not mine. I can help her through them, I can listen to what she says, but I don't have to believe her negative self-talk and choke myself in the process.

So, this is a big step for me! I'm officially declaring that I am going to delve deeper into my journey of self-discovery this year. I'm going against everything I was brought up to believe in and I'm putting myself on the pedestal! My decisions will be mine and not directed by my negative body image and self-loathing. I've always known I've had very poor self-esteem and I had always tried to find a quick fix for it. But, you know what, there is no quick fix......it is a process and I'm packing my bags to enjoy the ride.

The past few months have brought with them a big change in me. People are not so much noticing my weight loss but something about me that they can't quite put their finger on. I'm making some great SparkFriends who like me for who I am. I can write about anything and nobody judges me which is encouraging me to be more open.

I know a lot of you are religious and I've taken the first step in admitting that, while I don't go to church, I am very spiritual. I do not like what organized religion did for me in the past (that is another story!) and I really feel happier with my beliefs. I have my chats with my god every so often and usually they occur in nature while walking the beasts.

I am challenging myself and nobody else! I'm not going to become more like so and so, as I'm going to finally discover who I am! I'll be 45 this year and what a year it is going to be!

Thanks for reading! xo Susan

    I totally identify with what you say about trying to conform, to "be nice"... and then waking up one day to realize I had no idea who I was. What did I like? What did I want to do? I had no idea. I think selfishness is an integral part of this journey. We are cultivating a relationship with ourselves, trying to find out who we really are under all these layers of who we think we should be. I have a feeling that 2011 is going to be an amazing year for you and I'm looking forward to following your journey!
