Be nice.

Tuesday, December 09, 2014

Man yesterday I could really tell I was in withdraw. It was a struggle to be nice to people. I am usually called Sunshine at work...yesterday not so much.

Drank water, not a lot but no mountain dew either. A small Oatmeal cookie with a banana for breakfast. So the sugar was in control.

I want the high that comes from seeing the scale go down, instead of the fake feeling from junking myself up!

Have a great day, be KIND to people. I work in a pharmacy and yesterday we had so many unkind people to deal with, and not SICK unkind, just people that wanted to be mean.

So PLEASE I beg you, if you deal with a waitress, server, cashier, bell jingle-er, neighbor, nice and get in the spirit of Christmas :) emoticon

    Mean people stink. I work iwith the public and there are some days you could just choke some of them. But my momma always told me to kill them with kindness so I try. But sometimes you just have to put them in their place and they act differently. I have one client who is really pissy and I make it my mission to get him to smile at least once while he is in my office. Generally it works and he leaves in a better frame of mind.

But, in general when I am out, I try to smile and say kind words to people. Most are just doing their jobs. I really do not see a reason to be hateful all the time.

Yep that's my weight from this morning. Up about 10-15 pounds since October. Really surprised it's not more. Woke with a new determination to get back on track. I had to dig my scale out of a pile of paint boxes and put it in the hallway.

Life's been hectic, but whose hasn't? I got made full time at work so I have typically 1 less day off per week. I haven't exercised in Lord knows how long, a couple months at least.

Trying to get ready for Christmas. We put a new furnace in and they ran new duct work so the house is a mess (hence the paint cans on top of well...EVERYTHING!)

Doing a few crafts and craft shows, making extra Christmas money.

I will tell you this. My body hurts a lot more since I quit exercising so I HAVE to dig my bike out. I do not want to go up any farther, especially with Christmas coming, time to kick myself in the butt before cookie time.

I haven't drank a bottle, a WHOLE bottle of water in weeks. I have slipped back into soda mode. My sugar addiction is back in full swing. Today at work could REALLY suck. lol Which is worse though, for me or my co-workers I don't know. emoticon

    i LOVE the honesty & the transparency of this post Sandy! You know what you need to do. No-one needs to tell you. I can tell you that we are in the same boat on several of these issues. But we can also rise above & overcome. It's a journey not a race. Stay your course!!!

p.s. Do you ride a regular bike? I can't wait to be able to bike again!!!

Another day.

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Well I am mostly sickness free I think. At least my throat doesn't hurt, now I can swallow.

I was really baby-ing myself too. Sure, you feel bad..go ahead and drink that nice Caramel frappe'. And that chocolate Frosty, yes they feel soooo good going down. *eye roll*

Go ahead you can do it too. *eye roll*. Yesterday I got back on the bike and rode it about 35 minutes. I did not have time this morning, and tomorrow morning isnt looking good.

Got some bad news, my favorite uncle passed away Sunday morning so we are going to go to the visitation tomorrow evening. It is about 75 miles away. Will see family I havent seen in years. Most I dont care to see, some probably don't care if they see me or not.

I was the baby of the family and I came along late in life. All my half brothers and sisters were all married and gone when I came into the picture. Truthfully I dont know a lot of my family.

I am mostly going because I know my dad would have wanted me to go.

I may have to report a gain this week. I really am struggling getting back into the ball game.

    I'm sorry for your loss. Struggling is a B, but you've come so far... Just never stop trying and you'll get back into the swing of it. Don't be like me and gain most of your weight back before realizing all the hard work you've undone. (((((HUGS)))))

292 or 291, THAT is the question.

Friday, October 17, 2014

Ok this sickness is really getting on my nerves. Probably yours also. SO....moving on.

Today I have to put the finishing touches on all the crafts I have ready to go then later today we are going to go set up at the church that the show is being held at. Tomorrow is the big day. Our first craft show this year. I'll post pics!

Last year we did 5 or 6 shows, we just aren't as motivated this year or something. We have another show Nov 1 that is our favorite one and is right here in our little home town. We might squeeze 1 in in between now and then who knows once the bug hits us? lol.

I do enjoy looking at all the crafts people make and just being in among the people. The Christmas atmosphere I guess?

I got up this morning way too early, took my meds, weighed myself and logged it on here so I wouldn't miss it. Im so afraid of missing a day of logging in now that I am well over 100 days in a row. I hope to make it a YEAR! WOO HOO!

I was down to 292, went back to bed for a few hours, back up...and weighed again and squeaked into the 291 spot...hehe. We will see if it's still there tomorrow.

I really wanted a milk shake last night. I ended up eating applesauce. lol.

Having a hard time focusing on my next goal of 275 by Christmas but at least being sick is taking care of that for me...Im just going along with it.

Now I really must head to the garage, I have to stain 2 nativity sets or they wont be ready to go, then I have to stuff some burlap snowman heads and put eyeballs on my snowman fence. :) emoticon emoticon

Who woulda thought.

That Id get up today (at 10 am mind you) and weigh myself and having a 3-4 pound loss? Yep the scale hit 292. I had not been drinking a lot of fluids, so I tried hard yesterday to drink lots of water. I was up 3 times in the night to GO. That and getting much needed sleep in between must have helped. I did rush around at work yesterday but I did not do any extra exercises. I ate regular.

The only meds I am on is amoxicilan. My throat still feels like Im swallowing gravel.

Love this pic, love this girl.
