Thanksgiving Break

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Yes!!! Finally!!! A few days to put things into perspective and really get my stuff together!


Couldn't have come at a better time...

I am going to READ THE BOOK. For goodness sake, I own SparkPeople, but I haven't READ it.
Okay, I don't even really know what a motivational collage is....

BUT, I am going to DO ONE (after I learn what one is)...and I'm going to get myself working on ME, and MY health...

BECAUSE, I want to be typing on this blog NEXT YEAR about how THANKFUL I AM that I'm at my GOAL WEIGHT.

Gettin it done more excuses!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! emoticon

    Then you will be here next year at goal weight if that is what you want. All the choices are yours alone to make. Use the wonderful tools here on Spark. I can never say it enough, this site saved my life.

If there is anything you need, please let me know. Some times it is just knowing that someone has been or is where you are to know you are not alone.

200 lbs of slog moving through my body

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

I have done nothing but eat junk and drink Diet Coke all day andI am sitting here on my couch feeling as though there is 200 lbs of slog moving through my blood vessels. I am anchored solidy to the couch, droopy eyed and lethargic. So, I'm owning it...I mean what else can I do?

In stead of pretending like I have been perfect, I am embracing the fact that I have been anything BUT perfect. Like so many of my friends on Spark, I had one of those days where I started off not doing the right thing and then an avalanche of poor choices crashed down around me. I ate poorly at breakfast, I began drinking Diet Coke in stead of water. The ladies were ordering out at lunch today and even though I HAD a healthy lunch, I went along with them. I ate tons of little pieces of Halloween chocolate today throughout the day. Then, I came home and started eating Doritos while I cooked a totally unhealthy dinner--chicken nuggets, pasta, broccoli--neither Johnny or I really wanted to eat it because it was horrible. I have proceded to drink more Diet Coke and eat half a pound of ANIMAL CRACKERS...(who, other than a 2 year old, eats ANIMAL CRACKERS?) I am: LARD BUTT.

I'm going to go drink a pint of water and lick my wounds. Tomorrow will be a better.

    Oh, dearest Rose, sometimes things like this just happen! I've been there, too, and have a whole t-shirt collection as a result. At least you had the Diet Coke instead of the "real thing." But next time, might I recommend Pepperidge Farm Mint (or Orange) Milanos instead of the animal crackers? Yikes! ;) - Sandi emoticon

    I spent a lot of wasted time feeling guilty about my "slips" and feeling disappointed and disgusted with myself until I finally realized and accepted how unproductive that was. Now, I just say "Oops - poor choice - put on your "not-as-big-as-you-were girl" panties and move on.
Try to always remember that mistakes are a given; we are humans and are not perfect! †We don't have to feel the need to be perfect. Every time you get off track and take a detour on this journey, you have two choices: to keep walking backwards and give up; or to accept your detour as normal and forgivable, and take not one, but two positive steps forward.
If you never have problems, youíll never have any successes. Youíre in the process of changing your lifestyle, and finding solutions that work for you will take a lot of trial and error.
We all have times like this! The important thing is that you accept that you did it, forgive yourself, and move forward.
You have many friends here who care about you and want you to succeed.
emoticonYou are strong, you can do it!
Stay positive and donít quit!

    I'm sorry! You can't predict tomorrow but today still exists. Make it good. Water, move, water fresh fruit and veggies to push out the lard....

    My advice, make today better, not tomorrow. If you got a speeding ticket on the way home from work you would not continue to run red lights with a what the heck attitude.

We never have to wait till tomorrow to say this ends now. I am sure the animal crackers were quite delightful, but feeling better about yourself is priceless!!!

*hugs* Terri =)

    HaHaHa. I love this blog. I know the feeling where you can practically feel all the junk you consumed that day settling somewhere on your thighs, but what I loved is how you didn't make excuses and didn't beat yourself up. "Embracing the fact that I having been anything but perfect". That was great. The yucky way our bodies feel after a day of bad choices is pushiment enough, so why keep beating ourselves up with guilt. Your right, tomorrow will be better. You can do it.

Whooo mee!!!

-10 baby...that means that I have only like 89 to go! emoticon

The ex-husband has left the building! That is minus 290 lbs of annoyance! Whoooo wheee....
He comes in October to take Johnny to the State Fair and for that I am truly grateful (no temptation to eat Fair food!) However he brings with him a whole lot of emotional that one "r" or two? Well it is two r's worth anyway...

Anyway! I'm happy as a clam. Are clams really happy?

    Congratulations on your 10 pound loss!!!! That's wonderful!!!!

It always makes things easier when you don't have to deal with all the emotional baggage that goes along with having to spend time with people that are not healthy to be around and cause us stress.

Keep up the good work!!!!

It is Saturday. I have great plans for today, although I may have some kind of stomach bug. I'm trying to determine what is up with that. There is something going on at school, but I can't determine if this is because of the bad food I've eaten over the last two days (lots of eating OUT) or if it is the "bug." I'm praying for the former. I don't want the bug.

My ex-husband is in town to take Johnny to the SC State Fair. Today he plays in a football game and I am happy that his Daddy will get to see him play. I am also looking forward to some me time this weekend while they "bond".

My Mom is still in the hospital. She has been diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension. My sister and I will visit her later today.

I have a beautiful yellow car. It is so nice to have a new car. I will take pictures today...and I will put it them up here on the page so all can oooo and ahhhh!

I think I've done pretty well on eating. I need to work on exercise this coming week. I also need to work on SLEEP. I simply have to figure out my schedule so that I can get more sleep!

Off to eat see how that goes! PLEASE! I don't want to be sick! emoticon

    I'm sorry to hear of your mom's diagnosis, Rose. It sounds like a very challenging one, and I'm sure she's glad she's got you and your sister nearby at this time. You sound like you're making a good recovery from a bad spate of events. Enjoy that new yellow car in the very best of health! emoticon - Sandi emoticon

Apocalypse now!

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Okay, I seem to be having my own personal apocalypse. The song "It's the End of the World as we Know It" has been resoundiing through my head all day.

Here is the deal...

1) The car is totaled. And this week (like in a day or two) the settlement will be made and I will be buying a new car! HELLO car payments for another 6 years.

2) Johnny got stung by a bee today for the first time ever. He is okay, but it was just like the "icing on the cake"

3) My Mom was admitted to the hospital yet again. (It has been a full year of doctors, hosptial stays, transfusions, treatments, tests, and confusion). Tomorrow is a catheterization and I have to be there with her

4) School is crazy...busy busy busy.

But, I'm eating well, and drinking LOTS OF WATER. My thoughts (while humming the song) have been: "Drown the troubles away with water!" So, I just keep sucking down the aqua and forging on!

Tomorrow, Scarlet, is another day!

    Keep that positive attitude, life happens and that is whata is the difference between a diet and a lifestyle. A diet does not really teach us how to deal with it, a lifestyle does.

Hope you are having a better tomorrow Scarlett!!! (my favorite one is that "I will think about that tomorrow")
