doing better with the sunshine..

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Well, since my last blog I am doing much better. I have been to my appt., got my hormone levels checked and spoke with the doctor who is sure I have some depression. He has since given me a prescription for zoloft.
The last few days have made me tired with the medicine but I'm starting to feel better and my mood is good. I have also talked to a good friend of mine who has dealt with depression. She knows the Lord as well and know you need to take a good walk outside each day. That will help you. And don't forget to pray....
So thats what I've done. I'm casting all my cares on the LORD. He is ever so faithful and not only does He hear me but He is ABLE to answer my prayers.
I have decided to do a bit of spring cleaning before school lets out. I've also laid the schooling in the Lords lap and asked for His wisdom. I'm leaning towards teaching them at home some more. My husband has let me know he will support me either way but he really wants me to continue schooling them.
Thank You Lord for one supportive and Faithful husband.

a little depressed..

Saturday, May 24, 2014

My husband says, "isn't someone supposed to be happy when they've started losing weight?" When I had my stroke close to 6 months ago I was so ready to get healthy. I was all set to lay aside the sugar and chocolate. But the more I started learning about healthy eating and exercising, the more I'd realize that all this time I'd been stress-eating. So I'd set aside the desire to pop something in my mouth so I'd feel better only to find that I was all stressed over the events taking place. So I started to journal- but I've since stopped journaling and am just wishing I could have a better relationship with my husband so we could talk about the things that are bothering me.
Then the verse in Philipians comes to mind... Be anxious for nothing...I'm finding such a hard time casting my cares on the Lord. So worried about the daily cares. Lord, please help me get in your Word. '
I've made an appt. with my local doctor to talk to him about some depression. I can't wait to hear what he has to say. So, as the weigh-in goes, my weight seems to be going down but I need to de-stress. On to learn more about releasing stress.

Just a little discouraged...

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

I wake up this morning to rain hitting the metal roof. Ugh...Its a dreary day. I guess it doesn't help that I checked my weight yesterday and gained rather than lost. I'm looking to the day when I won't have to look at the scales every week and can enjoy healthy eating paired with some good exercise. I'm working on getting some life goals and getting out/enjoying the day. Anyone else hit a "blah" day and needing to push themselves to get going?

    I hear ya!!! I didn't gain this week, however, I only lost a pound after not losing any last week. Usually when that happens, I lose double the following week. But I do see the error of my ways. I had two bad days of eating instead of one and I didn't exercise as much this past week as I normally do. Hopefully seeing my mistakes and correcting them this week will result in at least 2 pounds lost next week.

That's okay, It'll get better! emoticon emoticon

Stress eating and journaling....

Monday, April 28, 2014

I am reading up on stress eating and ways to deal with it. Its good to know there are oth ers that are in the process of dealing with it too. I have gotten some good ideas on how to de-stress such as what I'm doing at this minute. I had started blogging as sort of a way to journal to myself how things are going. I'm hoping to get an understanding of when in my life I had started to stress eat and when/if this had anything to do with my stroke. I'm hoping it helps me to be able to talk to my husband and family a little better and that communication would help and we can have better relationships. Lord, please bring healing where its needed and restoration to relationships. Thank You so much for being a comforter and help in times of trouble.

sunny with a chance of wind :)

Thursday, April 10, 2014

Well, I went to visit my daughter and her new baby; we had a good time walking the mall and catching up. That baby is soo cute :) she sent me a pic of him smiling! So we spent a good deal of time looking at all of the neat dresses for Spring and I am so excited to finally fit in a size 12... never thought I'd get into another one again. I am on a roll. So glad to get the Trim Healthy Mama book. It has really been a help to me. Kids are taking a much needed break outside and now its time for me to go get the baby. Might I add he's finally standing on the crib side :)
