second day of period and ugh..... choices are crazy. like a cup of chocolate chips and a cherry pastry for breakfast...ugh. I am just a mess today. I feel awful. Just awful. Tomorrow will be better but I so have to get through today. I need to get out and vote too. I will. I just need a little time. I am still perfect in my goal weight. That is good. It's just a day.

Tough day

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

So today wasn't easy. I met a friend for coffee and discussed her separation. It was so sad. I felt so bad for the whole family. :-( I also got an email from the company that I'm supposed to work for. I have to meet an associate again to do paperwork we did months ago. I'm feeling quite overwhelmed with this. IO want to work but I"m so nervous about it. Without any good reason really. I haven't worked outside the home in 16 years. I'm just overwhelmed. I'm trying to push forward but it feels like a lot. I'm trying to take a moment. I don't want to eat my feelings. That is what I would usually do. I won't do that today. I've been at my goal weight now for over 6 months and I'm struggling with the idea of not having a perfect life while thin. I used to think when I'm thin everything else will fall into place. That is not true. I just have to deal with issues in a different way. Trying to navigate that now. Thanks for being here Sparkies!

    What a sad time for your friend. It's good that she has someone like you there to support her.

Going back to work can be a bit overwhelming, but you're not getting hired if they think you can't do the job. So hang in there. Gain some confidence for yourself and block out the 'what if's'.

Have a great day.

Feeling quiet today. I'm getting things done but slowly. I'm coming up on my one year anniversary of starting with Weight Watchers and this weight loss. It been 6 months at my goal weight now! Wow! This starts a new level of weight loss for me. 6 months has been the longest it has ever been and then I fall off the food wagon. So I will watch myself and be kind to me. I'm trying to take it one day at a time over here. Things are pretty good over all around here. Adam seems to be doing great in college. Josh is busy but he seems to be on top of everything as a junior. Joe is busy at work...which is good. I'm getting things done around here. We are having Adam's 19th family birthday dinner here Saturday!!!!! Wow!!!! Where has the time gone?

    19 years old?! Wow, where has the time gone?

Congratulations for keeping the weight off. You're doing great and just keep where you are and things will be wonderful.

Good luck with the dinner.

    Awesome. You can do it.

    The main thing to do when you fall off the wagon and maybe even roll down the hill is to get right back up, brush yourself off, hop right back up on that wagon and move forward.

Not so great

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

I had a 2 pound weight gain!!!!! ugh. I'm not sure why. Maybe hormonal changes. perimenapous stuff. I'm trying to watch everything this week. We will see.

    Yep, hormones and water gain. Just doesn't seem fair. Keep doing what you're doing and within a few days the numbers on the scale will change.

    Temporary things can play with that. Scale is by far not the important tool measurement.

    Don't worry about the why of what's past, do what youknow is right in the present and correction will come.

So I binged on cinnamon bread yesterday. :-( 7 slices. Ugh. So I go to Zumba this morning. Yup. I tracked all of it. I will be cleaning this afternoon. The house needs it. Our friend is getting his port put in today. Sending prayers to him that the chemo does its job quickly. Another gorgeous day here! Just beautiful! Hope my Sparkies have a great day!

    Cinnamon buns for me is a weakness, so I don't make them and I don't buy them. That prevents lots of let downs for me.

I do hope your friend handles the chemo okay. So sad.

Weather here is starting to warm up since it snowed here Monday and Tuesday.
Have a great day.

    Yesterday must have been a cinnamon day. I had a baked apple with cinnamon and Ooooo was it tasty!

Sprinkle half an apple with a splash of lemon juice, packet of NuStevia & tsp of cinnamon. With a little water on the bottom of a microwave safe bowl & covered with a plate - microwave for 3 min on high. Taaa dahh! YUMMY!

Praying for your friend. Wishing a good day for you too!
