Fun day building bridges. & a wave and a smile.

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Slept in a little and just took a more relaxed day. Had my Herbalife shake and for supper I baked salmon, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus and a couple of baby potatoes. I think what I need to do, is have the other shake for my nite time snack, that's my basic problem area...

Then after noon I went as a volunteer at g.d.'s school. They had a special person come in and do a presentation with fantastic model bridges. The kids get a laminated book showing each step and they then work together as teams and build the bridge, sketch the bridge and then dis-assemble it. Very impressive. I got their brochure.. Hands On! She told me they have about 13 different science curriculum sets. The bridges they made were a girder, a suspension, a Roman arch, and a truss bridge. They made up into about a 4-6 foot bridge and you got to see all the parts and pieces and assemble it. What an idea!!!

So, lots of homework to do and we're going out to grocery store, so just enjoying Mya downstairs visiting us and playing in her Mystery Box. I'll try to attach her new pic fromtoday

(oh wow, was that ever easy..) .

5th meeting in 2 days...STOP the world and let me slow down.

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I woke at 6:8 and was up by 8:11 and making myself a nice veggie omelet for breakfast and my meeting call came at 9am and we had session til almost 11am. Lunch and out to my meeting with the Head Hunter. Nice friendly people and she suggested a weekend course that might catch me up on my office skills. she will email me. Sounds like with only 4 people in the office and 15 temps, not much going to happen there. Then to FP meeting which went on for 3 hrs.. always learn something new there... home and catch up on piles of stuff, and PVR shows..

My Herbalife order came in today... must call and postpone tomorrow's meeting.... 5 meetings in the past 2 days has me overwhelmed and I need time to go through the order and catch up. Tomorrow afternoon I volunteer in my g.d.'s classroom... who's got time to exercise or diet properly with all this going on. Maybe I am on a 3 hr. jetlag still, but time to catch up.

Monday already....

Monday, February 27, 2012

OK, day started with a 2 hr. training session by phone. Then dh woke and had a meltdown and I had breakfast and showered and went for my mental health appt. Since I was on such a high... she told me I was doing great and let me go before my hr. was even up.. She did warn me though that since I had weaned myself off the antidepressant that I may have a crash, so be careful.. She also told me her 2 hr. appt this a.m, had canceled, so guess she had an easy a.m.

Made a couple of stops at my usual bargain hunting shops and came home. Played with baby and watched tv, slow day... expect my new shakes in the mail tomorrow and then my daily coaching sessions... time for big changes.... and as usual, when it seems like I find something to focus on and put my hopes on dh gets jealous and resentful and mean...

So, tomorrow I see my FP, that's always a guaranteed fight afterwards and the life insurance man called today too, so right back into the pot of hot water, no adjusting and warming, just back at it.

No exercise, and not on diet plan today either.

    You're really making strides in improving yourself and I'm proud of you for that. I just wish you had more every day support at home. I know what it's like to live like that and that's really no way to live. I say a prayer for you always that things will get better for you.

    I don't know why - but your use of meltdown made me see dh as an ice sculpture the carribean sun!

Stay strong, you are worth it and you deserve to be happy!! emoticon

Sunday - getting back to normal

Monday, February 27, 2012

Wow, who watched the Oscars tonite? Our Cdn. Christopher Plummer, after 60 years, is the oldest to wins at 82 ..... who ever said you can be too old to do something? And Meryl Strep - she's 62!!!! Who would've guessed....

Well, I have started on a new adventure. I didn't know I was going to do this, but what a strong coach/supporter I have received. He had me doing my first training session tonite, and we will discuss it at 9am... Finally, putting health and income together... a job? We'll see

Back to our usual weekend activities, going to the stores.... Took Lucy shopping for her first trip into a pet store. She was welcomed, but she didn't accept the doggie treat she was offered...What a discerning dog!

Busy week coming nup... 2 appts. tomorrow, 3 Tuesday and Weds. g.d invited me to go volunteer helping her class make bridges...

Exercise has to be next on the agenda...I've fallen off the wagon for past couple weeks again...

    Sounds like you've jumped back into the same old routine quickly. The exercising will come - you can do it!

    Vacations can throw schedules into disarray. I am sure that you will get back on shortly.

Have a great day-our plumbing problem has had two results-no water in the house at all and the old pipe in the garbage bag hit my leg and bruised it(hope that is all it is).

Off to the gym to shower and then to work! emoticon

    We both have to climb back on the exercise horse that threw us. Congratulations on your new adventure! And for what it's worth, my Lucy dog doesn't eat dog treats either. It's always been odd - my cats will eat anything, but my dogs are very finicky.
