What do I do now???!!!

Saturday, March 02, 2013

My mom, who has some form of dementia, is getting really worse. She fights with us about everything, probably because she doesn't understand what were saying anymore. I reminded her the other day of the wonderful vacation we took about 10 years ago. She was furious with me, yelled at me and called me a liar. My poor dad doesn't know what to do anymore. We need to seriously start thinking about nursing homes, which will break my dad's heart, not to mention mine! I'm so upset I want to eat everything that's bad for me to make me feel better, but I'm going to Florida in 4 weeks so I'm trying hard to stick to my diet. Why does life have to be so hard?! Sorry, really upset and just have to vent or I'll go crazy!!!

    Is there an Alzheimer's support group in your community? There may be some resources that will help you in this difficult time...

As to the emotional eating, I certainly identify with that... all I can do is just take it a moment at a time, drinking a glass of water when staring temptation in the face, or diverting myself somehow...

Hang in there. You know we're rooting for you.

    It is not easy watching our parents become like that. But at least you can remember for her now all the good times.

  Thank you for venting and it is okay to vent. I am sorry you and your dad are so upset. I don't know what you are going through. I do appreciate your feelings and your concerns. Share your concerns with your dad and I understand the nursing home avenue. If the nursing home is not the best option maybe you can get some help like a visiting nurse or caregiver, so you can have a break.

I know you are upset, but eating everything in sight will not help you in the long run. Enjoy your long deserved trip to Florida. Breath. Rest. emoticon emoticon

Merry Christmas!

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

I'm up late tonight tracking Santa's whereabouts on NORAD Tracks Santa.: My new favorite holiday tradition. No, I don"t have any kids, nor is there anybody under the age of 40 in my house. I just think it's a neat thing to do. It's fun and the people at NORAD have to be both creative while being actors (good or not, you decide) all while keeping Canadian and U.S. skies safe. They really get into the holiday spirit and I'm sure have a lot of fun doing it, some while being away from their loved ones during the Christmas season. If you have kids (or if you don't) check it out. They even have a Facebook link: If you wake up tomorrow morning, you may have missed the big guy, but you can revisit his journey on YouTube. Just type in a NORAD Tracks Santa search and see what it's all about. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY TEAM MEMBERS ON SP!!!!

Holiday ice show

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Well I really have got to buckle down for real now. I just signed up for our annual holiday ice show and I can't show up with chubby legs and anything else that's chubby. Because, despite what people say about figure skating, it IS all about the costume. Say yes to the dress and all that stuff. I'm gonna look good. I may not be the best skater but I will dazzle the crowd with my stunning good looks!!! emoticon

Spot Light

Monday, November 05, 2012

WOW! I was the Spotlight member of the Spark Team "SP Class of April 22-28, 2012" which I received several goodies and message. Thanks team!!! Of course this just means that I have to work harder. How can I possibly let my team down now?! emoticon I have to stop using my crazy life and my family as an excuse (oh, poor me, life is so hard. I deserve this candy bar). Instead I should use them as a reason (when I feel better I can take care of mom, the house, etc...better) Okay team. No promises. But I will try harder to be more active, both in my life and on the site. I will try to make better and healthier food/life choices. As Britt Nicole says in her song "Stand": "No, I won't turn and run/This battle will be won!"

Try, Try again

Monday, July 23, 2012

It's been a while since I've been here; sporadic at best. Too many circumstances in my life keep getting me off track. I hope and pray to God that now will be a time of rest and recuperation from all the circumstances and normal life will return. I've had to push back my goal weight but the goal is still there. I do thank God for my friends who have kept me on track with my fitness (even though I haven't been tracking it.) Fitness equals fun and healing. emoticon+ emoticon = emoticon --> emoticon
