A New Month-Another New Beginning

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

I love the first day of the month..it's like new years...12 times a year :) i didn't lose anything last month...but i didn't gain either... i stayed pretty much on track...and really...compared to the way things were going...i say that is a big hurray for me...things are still crazy at work...but they are now condensed down to 8 hours instead of the 12-16 a day... home is still crazy..but that is life with teenagers...lol...as for me...i have had to sit down and have a little talk with myself... it's a daily thing really... i have to remind myself that i cannot do it all...i am not the beginning and the end of it all...and life will go on if i take some time for myself...uh...just don't tell work or my kids that...they still think the world comes to a grinding halt if i'm not the one in charge...lol.

Happy October :)

What's NOT For Breakfast

Thursday, September 25, 2008

I was reading an article on MSN about America's worst breakfast... and wow...it was an eye opener...granted...i don't eat any of what they mentioned, and if i have to opt for a breakfast fast food style, i luckily like the lower calorie and lower fat choices and order them already...but the fact is...wow... this is what america is eating... the link to the article is below....

    I am glad I didn't eat anything on the "worst" list. Granted, I rarely ate anything in the "instead" list either.... I usually don't do breakfast out, but when I do I attempt to be smart about it. I guess I'm not doing too bad with it :)

    Thanks for thinking of sharing the article - did read it on Yahoo. So glad we do not generally like to eat breakfast out. ......the sodium and fat contents are unreal and to think these things make the food taste good??? blek....!!! I simply picture the fat clogging my artery and it makes me not want to eat:) emoticon

  Wow, JoDee! That was amazing! Thank God I don't have the money or time for fast food, because if I did, I might be an offender! Maybe not, though, since joining here... I've actually driven past drivethroughs at suppertime simply because I didn't want to go over my calorie allowance! This is even more motivation to stay away! Thanks for sharing!

    I like how they gave the equivalents for each meal...that was the real eye opener. Yeah, I hardly eat out for breakfast and when I do, I don't think to order any of these meals...CRAZINESS though.

    Great article Kitty! Thanks for sharing! I could not believe some of the calories in those foods. You are right though, luckily they were not even close to being a choice I would make for breakfast! Except maybe the banana pecan thing! LOL!

A Giggle For Today

Monday, September 22, 2008

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.



If you can't eat it or play with it,



Just pee on it and walk away.

It Was A Bad Day Yesterday

Saturday, September 20, 2008

Yesterday was a start of a bad day. dd2 woke up super cranky and wanting to argue...in the past, i have gave in to that...she definitely knows what buttons to push...uhg...but yesterday as soon as she started, i took a deep breathe and told her the conversation was done...she started again, i just said we are done..finished...she tried one more time...and i just repeated we are done...finished... she was quiet the rest of the morning :) then went to work, and i swear, it was idiot call in day... i swear, every other call was an idiot...lol... i mean really...customers would call to see where their shipment was, and didn't have tracking numbers, didn't even know where it was being shipped from... ok..i am good at my job...but only i can do so much if the caller doesn't know anything about what they want... then cause i had so much over time and they are trying to cut that out, i was suppose to go home at a noon...didn't get out until almost 1...come home and the cable and internet was off again... to say at this point i wanted to cry was an understatement...so i just sat down and rested... didn't take a nap, but didn't do anything else either...lol... then did some errands and went and got girls from their school... while waiting, i called my mom and told her i needed a night without dd2...i love the child...i really really do... but she can also push buttons like no body i have ever seen... she had her sister in about tears the night before..so mom agreed to take dd2 for the night at some point during the weekend...wohoo!!! i am going to be doing a happy dance...lol... but the goodness did not last long...son called and was furious cause the cable was out AGAIN!!! ok... like i can help this... and told him so...the dd1 needed to go do some things...finally after getting what needed to get done and getting some cleaning done, things were calm enough for a couple games with the cranky beings...so luckily we did end the day on a good note...

this morning, dd2 is already up and yelling...and again... i take a deep breathe and tell her we can hold a reasonable conversation without yelling and screaming...if not...i'm done...finished... she really really hates this new thing...me on the other hand am loving it...and proud of myself for not reacting :)

    Curious how old is DD2? Does she forget to eat? When my DH forgets to eat he gets crankly like that.

    Kitty, I think one of the hardest things to do as a parent is NOT to react. And that is SO-O-O-O hard when all your buttons are being pushed over and over again! I used to think it was avoiding the problem, but in reality, it is preventing the problem from escalating and getting out of control!

Congratulations on keeping your cool and maintaining peace!

    WooHoo!!! Way to stay in control! I am already dealing with this kind of thing with my 9 year old, and I too get to the point where I tell her that we are done discussing it, and if she wants to continue to argue, she can go to her room until she can think things over.

Hopefully the rest of the day will be a lot more relaxing for you!

    I think all DD'se go through something like this. Then when they grow up and leave home it doesn't break your heart, of course we do still love them through it all LOL.

    You go JoDee! Don't put up with that silliness. I mean, I realize the silliness is coming from a 'child' but still. It isn't normally worth the frustration.

I do hope today is better for you and is more productive (even if it's just productive "me" time!!).

Have a great weekend, lady. Glad to have you back!

To All My Team Members & Co-Leaders

Sunday, September 14, 2008

Many of you know about Kitty's world and the crazy life i have been leading...ok..since birth...lol...but more crazy the last couple months...i want to thank each and everyone here for helping me keep afloat....you all through out those life lines and kept me from falling under...i thank you...the blog comments, the comments on my page, the goodies and the spark mails have all kept me striving to be the best me i can be no matter the circumstances... because of each of you, i did not fall into all of my old habits-fast food, bad eating habits and drinking only coffee and soda...i strived to keep up with my fruits and veggies...i drank my water...i continued to try to fit in exercise and yes...even a little me time...i didn't turn to alot of fast food, and when i did, i made healthier choices... i didn't do this on my own though...it was your support that got me there and kept me there...and i thank you.

Now on to the other news..as of tonight...i will be starting the postings up again...that's right...the kitty wants to know and all the weekly posting...the one thing you will see different though, is how i post the weekly's...it won't be all on sunday as before... i'm spreading it out through the week... there is so much information i want to share, but haven't cause of time... so i have had to sit down and have a heart to heart with myself, i still want to do all the posts...share what i can... but how to do it in a manner that would fit my life, even with the crazies...lol... so now, i spread it out... a little each day... taking those baby steps that i have learned not only through my flylady routine, but through SP...

Remember co-team members...if i can do it...so can you... you can keep living a healthy lifestyle even when the crazies hit... you can still be the best you... you can do it.... just baby step it all the way :)
