Hi friends!

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Feeling ok. In a weird place today. Hubby has an idea for me to work with him at his office making some phone calls and things. I'm a bit nervous about this. I want to do this but nervous. I haven't worked outside the home in 15 years! Wow! It won't be for about a month or so. My stomach is not great but better. I'm going to watch my lactose as well as gluten and see what happens. I am lactose intolerant so that may be flaring up again. I'll head up soon to shower and get ready for the day. That should help. My mood is so sad lately. I know Adam being a senior is really messing with me. I have to pick out a baby picture for the yearbook today and I can start crying just thinking about it. We've been through so much the past four years. He reminded me that he was a freshman when he came out to us, family and even friends and school! That was quite a year. Now he is going to be recording his audition reel in NYC with a song from the Broadway musical Bare and it is so moving. It just brings me back to where we were 4 years ago. It's hitting me hard. It's so much. I'm so happy for him that he is where he is now but the emotions of all he...we ...went through are very fragile this year. I hope working with Joe will keep me busy and help me through all of this transitioning. So taking it day by day over here. Thank you Sparkies who have been here with me these past 4 years! You are a God sent!

    I think you need to see your counsellor again.

I'm glad you are opening up on how you're feeling.

My eldest is graduating this year too. I have to admit...I'm scared, nervous and just lost, 'cause I'm not sure what is going to happen next.

    I can't believe Adam is going to be graduating come spring! I am so proud of him, of all of you really. I know this is hard for you, but you can handle it, you are a strong and amazing woman and you have raised wonderful kids. As for working with your husband, that should be interesting indeed. I hope it works out ok. Hugs.

ugh

Monday, October 07, 2013

I spent the day at the hospital with my brother. Stress, nerves and hospitals ....equal bad food choices. Dunkin Donuts for breakfast. Pepperoni pizza for lunch...Butterscotch pudding and chips with Nutella to comfort myself. Ughhhhhhhh. I'm done for the day. The weather he is crazy so I'm in for the night and already in my pj's by 4:30. I'm also done with food for the day. That is fine with me. I'm in the time of the month as well. The perfect storm. :-( . Sorry about all the downer lately. I'll get it back together.

    It's amazing when a person goes to the hospital and basically what you find in pizza, sandwiches with lots of mayo and pop.

Sorry your brother is ill and that you spent a whole day doing nothing and just eating.

Don't be hard on yourself. Next time you go to the hospital. Be prepared. Bring a disposable bag lunch and make do.

Hope your brother feels better soon. Take care of yourself.

Hugs.

Feeling weak

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

I want to make a difference in the amount of food I'm consuming. I'm feeling weak. I'm taking a moment. I'm here. If I'm here I'm not in the refrigerator. Right? I am getting things done. I'm drinking my water. 4 cups so far. Sometimes it feels like I'm going through withdrawals with the food. I had greek yogurt for breakfast. I will have lunch in 30 minutes. Broccoli with cottage cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers. Balsalmic vinegar and olive oil. More water. Coffee around one o'clock. I'm going to Zumba tonight. I put away 3 loads of laundry so far and changed the sheets. I put frozen turkey chili in the crock pot. I'm trying to be happy with me when I don't go to food. Baby steps.

    Baby steps and have a cup of tea. Relax a little and get into your zone. You know you have a zone somewhere in that little world of yours.

Take care of yourself.

    It can be hard to come back and keep trying to make good changes for your health, but you can stick to this! Sorry you feel bad.

    I know how you feel. I'm back on the proverbial wagon. Why is it that when you start eating healthy, you also start obsessing about food? One reason is that you are retraining your body to eat smaller portions. It's not quite where your brain wants it to be yet.

Hang in there! You've got a game plan and you can do it!

I'm trying out a new Zumba instructor tonight. Keep your fingers crossed that I like her because, ever since I moved to this area I haven't had luck finding an instructor I like.

Have fun at your Zumba class!

Thanks for the kind wishes yesterday

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

I am feeling a bit better today. I'll actually shower today and brush my teeth...Yuck! Food was bad yesterday. I always comfort with food. Well today will be better. Yogurt for breakfast. Lots of hot tea yesterday. Maybe I'll get to Zumba tomorrow night. I hope so. I'm still doing alot of resting. The weather here in Upstate in New York is gorgeous! Just gorgeous!!!! This entire week is mid 70's and sunny and just ahhhhh....The leaves are just changing color. Just a glimpse of the brilliant colors that are about to be!

I've got a cold :-(

Monday, September 30, 2013

Yuck. Trying not to comfort myself with food. Ugh. I'm prone to doing that. My tummy feels a bit better. The kids are busy. Hubby seems to be doing well at work. So maybe we are in an upswing around here. I need to rest so no Zumba today. I need to get Josh from football tonight and that is it! So kinda bored. Hanging on the couch resting up. I'm drinking my fair share of tea and water. The dog is loving it. He is so happy when there is a warm body on the couch with him all day ;-).

    Get plenty of rest! Chicken soup is great along with hot tea. I used a heating pad for the chills. Cuddling with your buddy is good too!
