Again *sigh*

Monday, August 12, 2013

So I'm in that 'blah' place again but really trying to working on things to make them better. Not real sure what to do about job though which is a whole other situaiton.

Currently, I'm reading the book "The Untethered Soul". I need to write a blog about this. I'm hoping once I get into the heart of the book I can learn how to be untethered to my my thoughts and emotions.

Start Over

Thursday, August 01, 2013

With my Fitbit flex and getting a replacement sparkpeople 10 min. workout disc, I 'should' be able to start over on my weight loss journey...or at least back on track exercising. I'd say the hardest, worst part is eating though. I have GOT to figure out like a menu plan or something for dinner and also breakfast and lunch on the weekends. I 'usually' just eat breakfast and later lunch at work so do not have a good idea of breakfast and lunch at home, not to mention having a picky three year old :-p. Anyway, just got to do baby steps and do one thing at a time. Maybe need to start a spark streak on this stuff.

  Good habits or any habit is hard in the beginning, however you make changes and finds things that work for you. Sparkspeople offers a great thirty day calendar plan for meals and menus. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Get Over It

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

So I've been mopping over losing a few important and one expensive item. It's over and I need to move on.

A couple of weeks ago I got my daughter some videos at the library. I usually have my 10 minute workout video in the machine ALL the time to use everyday. We took it out to play my daughter's dvds. I put my exercise disc to the side...I've never seen it since :-(. We looked everywhere for it. *shrug* After a couple of weeks, I just now ordered a new one.

I have participated in the local Relay for Life for 8 years since my mom passed. This was a mixed year. It was the first year I had my Fitibit. There is a lot of hustle and bustle getting all our campsite stuff in. Somewhere between leaving home and getting our campsite settled I lost my Fitbit :-(. I looked everywhere for it. I tried my car. I hoped maybe I left it at home but didn't think so. I even tried to sync it to see if I was anywhere. Now I have had several mishaps of losing or misplacing it but this time it's gone :-(. I even called the place where the relay was at. In the end, I replaced it with a Fitbit flex, which I had though to get in the first place. Now sure if I like it quite as well but I'm pretty sure I'm not going to lose something snapped on my wrist.

Anyway, it's time to quite moping about this stuff and move on. Losing stuff is a part of ADHD too. I have gotten a LOT better though. Things have there place now so I know exactly where they are. Just got to keep working on things.

  I have misplaced things and then, actually lost things. My daughter asked me what is the difference and I explained to her one is knowing that it's not gone, you just can't find it and the other is, it is gone! I've recently "found" two things I had misplaced and other times, actually lost things and out it behind me as a learning experience. We go through the emotions ands then, its time to keep it moving! It's not fun however, even if you don't think you have ADHD, it happens! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wow, I wish I would have known about the customer service thing before ;-). I'm sort of getting use to the flex. I need to start wearing a watch again too so I guess just need to get use to stuff on my wrists. I am getting a LOT better about not losing things but I still have more moments.

    I've read some customer support stories about people providing pretty strange reasons for losing their Fitbit ("I was out dancing, looked down and it was just gone!") and the company replaced them, no questions asked. You might try it if you aren't happy with the flex.

Blah

Monday, July 29, 2013

I am at a blah spot right now. I'm not real sure what's going on per se. May have to do with lowering my Prozac dose but I really want to try to get it lowered or even off it if my husband and I want another child. Then I was diagnosed with ADHD late 2012. I am taking Vynanse for that too. Took Adderall for awhile but had some trouble remembering to take it.

I think moving in April/May, my husband starting back to work and having a three year old is taking it's toll and I need a vacation. At the very least we are going to go visit my husband's family in northern IL for a few days.

My husband and I work different shifts and hardly see each other. And when we do have a day off it's usually doing housework. Then we are both so tired and worn out, not to mention each need some alone time if that makes sense.

Next I've got a stubborn little three year old. Just when I think she's got at least peeing down, she regresses *sigh*. Yeah, I know I need to have more patience which is one of MANY things I am working on.

Maybe I'm 'trying' to hard. Trying to maintain a nice, clean house...with a perfectionist husband. I'm trying to work the FlyLady system but 'baby steps' seem not enough even though I know it is. I'm also working on my ADHD. Trying to figure out how to deal with different things such as time management and distractions. I'm trying to take things in like a sponge about it. I'm almost OCD about it but trying not to be.

Finally and of course not least, is trying to eat healthy and exercise. I thought I had exercise down pat but I lost both my 10 sparkpeople vid AND my fitbit :-(. I haven't replaced my vid yet but I did buy I fitbit flex. Not real sure if I like it as well as the other one but I'm hoping that at least I won't lose something on my wrist :-p. And eating healthy? Between a husband who could care less what he eats to a picky three year old.... Not to mention I get overwhelmed trying to pick healthy food and use coupons and stuff.

Anyway....just venting all this out. My daughter was so tired after several days of being out and about that she actually fell asleep at a decent time. She's the best thing in my life and the most challenging. I've wanted to blog for quite some time but sometimes I don't feel like I have the time to do it. I hope to blog more often. Actually, I hope that anyone that doesn't see me blog for a week or so to speak up and let me know I need to say hey I'm still alive.

    Thanks for the feedback lady. I think I just needed to vent things out. I feel a bit better today.

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. Try to take things slowly, even if they have nothing to do with eating or exercise. You're trying to be more organized? Focus on that for a week or two. You're trying to see if you can wean yourself off your meds? Focus on that for awhile. Your emotional health is just as important as your physical health, and when you're emotionally healthy, you'll find it easier to be physically healthy. And I believe that the slower you take things, the more likely you are to keep off any weight you lose because it becomes a lifestyle instead of a diet.

A New Angel

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

The little 13 yesr old boy Lane Goodwin, who had a 'Thumbs Up' against childhood cancer lost his battle this evening. Please say a prayer for his family at this time. It's going to be a rough time but I hope they can take comfort that he is not sick or suffering anymore.
