Hope you had a nice Sunday

Monday, April 11, 2011

After blogging yesturday I went to my Zumba class. It was good but I needed some knew workout clothes. I didn't have much and now that I'm working out twice as often I'm running out of clean workout clothes quicker. I ended up wearing old clothes in the back of my closet that really didn't fit that well. So my workout included pulling at strategic areas for an hour :(. Still got some good sweating in though. Rene was thrilled I registered for the class! She answered some questions. I'm glad I have a couple months to wrap my brain around all of it. We went to Dibella's Sub shop for lunch. Yum. I bought a garden salad and small sub and put the awesome meats from the sub on my salad. Omg. So good! We went to see Arther in the movies which I tried to protest because it was the first gorgeous day of the year. I obviously was overruled but it really was a great movie. Very funny and sweet. Josh decided it was time to tell his best friend about Adam. Our families have been close for 8 years and Josh didn't want him to find out at his boy scout meeting Wenesday. A few of the boys in his troop are in Adams grade and didn't want Connor to find out that way. So it was a long night. Josh wanted to text him the info. So he did. Josh asked him if he was ok and Connor said he wasn't sure. So we all went to bed a bit bummed and stresed. Joe left a voicemail for Connors dad. Joe still hasn't heard back from him. Josh saw Connor at school today and he nodded at Josh. Josh says that was good. So we are going with that. Dinner last night was a cup of cottage cheese. Big lunch. This morning I had my friend Kim and mom over for coffee. Ended up eating one and a half muffins :(. I went to lunch with Joe at Chipolte. I had a very healthy burrito bowl with chicken salsa and lettuce. I had a cup of Activia yogurt for snack. I have a hip hop dance class tonight that I'm really looking forward to. It's so warm and beautiful out today. I had to pull out spring capri's and short sleeve shirts. Ugggg. I own about 6 pairs of capri's and skirts and only fit into 2 pairs right now. :(. Definitely gave me incentive to be healthy with my eating. Have a healthy day!

So time to work on me

Sunday, April 10, 2011

I can admit something to my Spark Peeps that I have never been able to work on with anyone else. I'm afraid of everything being perfect. Isn't that strange. I know this is a problem and have have acknoledged it to myself a few times in my life but never put it out there to others. Maybe doing that will help me. I am coming into that great place and I'm afraid of it. I have absolutely no idea why. When I get here I start to sabotage myself. I feel it creeping in. I bought awful but yummy stuff for our get together Friday and have been sneaking some of it since. Left over brownies and cupcakes. I had pizza again for dinner last night and breakfast this morning. Everything is good. Really good. I know I'm ready for my monthly annoyance and that doesn't help. I know me and registering for that cetification, keeping up with great exercise, everyone saying how awesome it is that I'm doing this is sending my spiraling. I already have women from my other classes that say they would love to take my class and finding ways to get me to shadow other teachers now. It's awesome and alot for me. This feeling is not new. So I'm glad I'm acknoledging this. Maybe it will help this time. We had a nice day yesturday. I went to bed really early and Joe and Adam went to listen to a band with Jared and his dad. Josh stayed at a friends. Today I'm skipping church. I need to reset. Going to my Zumba class at noon. Talk to Rene, the teacher who would mentor me, let her know I registered. No plans for the rest of the day. I guess we will see where the day takes us. Thanks so much for being here.

    I can understand where you are coming from. It is sometimes much easier to constantly be looking for something going wrong somehow there are some of us (I include myself) who only cope in crisis situations. so let me reassure you the holiday won't last forever LOL (but I'll pray it lasts a long time so that you can enjoy it if only a little)

    Don't feel alone. I always am a bit leery when things are going so well in my life. I am just waiting for the shoe to drop. In the end we end up doing things that sabotage our happiness. We can change that. I find when I am in a self-sabatoging mode I have to rid my house of any temptations. I make it harder on myself to sabotage myself. I also post positive affirmations around my house. Hang in there you can work through this.

    I know what you mean about being afraid of everything being perfect...I, too, have a similar fear...I think we can overcome this fear, though. For whatever reason, we probably don't think we deserve peacefulness or happiness in our lives...but we do! We don't have to sabotage ourselves as we reach our goals and things become just as we had hoped...we can rejoice in the blessings given to us and soak them up. We deserve this calm after such long storms we have endured...

Have a great rest this morning and a wonderful zumba class!!

Wow what a Friday

Saturday, April 09, 2011

Adam came home from school with a huge goofy grin on his face. emoticon He said everyone officially knows. People were pretty great. Many asked very funny questions which made him laugh alot. He had guys he didn't even know ask him in the hall if its true. He'd say yes and they'd give him a fist bump, nod and keep walkin. emoticon He had a kid in his math class ask if that means his dad is gay too emoticon. So funny. The point is everyone was good. He has one friend who was kinda strange and said he just had to get Adam the right girlfriend. He will find her for him. So that was ackward but his reaction could have been way worse. So far so good. He knows things may get different by Monday but happy all went well. He went to his friend Jared's to watch a movie with about 6 other friends last night. It went really well. He came home all smiles.
Now about me.... I signed up for Zumba certification class yesturday!!!!! So psyched! It's in Manchester Vt. on June 5th. I'm really excited about it! I think this will be a great thing for me. I've felt like I need to mix things up for a while now and I believe this is a healthy way to do it. I need to be challenged. We've decided that all my earnings in the next year will go toward a trip to Europe in 2013! So here we go! We will also be saving money since I spend money to go to these classes now people will be spending money to come to mine!!!! Food: Omg, not so good. Started well with veggie hummus sandwich from Panera for lunch. I was so worried about Adam I forgot breakfast which never happens. Half cup of plain Activia yogurt with Truvia for snack. Here we go...Tostitos chips with salsa, Zebra popcorn (OMG soooooo yummy) with family while watching movie. 2 and Half pieces of no cheese pizza, 4 mini brownies and 2 margaritas! Wow! I told you not good. Celebetory food. I did enjoy the company, the food and the movie :). Had an awesome day and hope my Sparkpeeps emoticondid as well!

    Wow, it sounds like both you and Adam had a great start to the weekend. I hope the next blog has the same upbeat.

congrats on the going for the Zumba certification.

At my luncheon yesterday I had drinks, appetizers, yummy meal and a dessert (shared with DH). I came home logged it in and found I only had enough calories for well let's just say not much! Dinner consist of two handful of blueberries!!! Thank GOD it hit the spot. I was actually still satisfy from lunch so the blueberries was more of a mind thing because I was not really having a dinner.

  Fantastic that you had such a great day! Good for you for signing up for the aumba certification too! That is awesome!
tell your son that there will be girls or women when he is older who will try to "convert" him! I have seen this happen with gay guys who were friends with my daughter. Don't know why but for some females a gay man is a big challange.

    Wow I love it when a plan comes together, I love chatting to people when they are down and confused and see the sun (or more likely the Son) come out. I'm so happy for you what fantastic news. If you like you can tell your son their are still people who just think I need to meet the right man LOL I'm 42 and been gay all my life (I never even had a boyfriend)
Some things never change. LOL

Sounds like Adam is doing great and I am so excited about you getting your zumba certification! I can't wait to hear how this will change things for you!

Have an awesome day, sweetie!! emoticon

Happy Friday!

Friday, April 08, 2011

So yesturday Adam came home from school and told me that many people asked him if he was gay. One friend said he was fine with it but its against his religon. He actually quoted verses on it. I told Adam I had many verses from a good (Spark) friend that could help him with this. He said he didn't want to go there with him it would just encourage a bad discussion. I think it was about his parents because he said he was fine with it. Sadly enough his family goes to my inlaws church :(. This didn't help Adam with going to church but we are all being patient with that. He told this kid "this is what I think of your verse" and flipped him off :).. They were both smiling during all this. He was a bit nervous about going in to school today but knows this is what he wanted. I'll keep you updated. Have a great day! Food: breakfast on last blog, cup of cottage cheese, salmon salad with broccoli and olives and lowfat cheddar cheese. sugar free butterpecan ice cream at local outdoor ice cream shop. boneless pork chop with asparagus and broccoli. Had a great Zumba class last night as well.

    It figures that someone would say something. What ever they may think, that doesn't have to be.

I'm glad that you are keeping focused with going to Zumba. It sounds like fun.

Happy Thursday

Thursday, April 07, 2011

I got alot of great info at my Zumba class last night. Kim told me she would love to certify me in primary dance instruction. Wow. That is a big deal around the dance world in our area. She said there is alot more involved than becoming a Zumba instuctor so I should get certified in that first to start teaching and make some money. I talked to the Zumba instructor and she said she would be happy to mento me in the process. Basically all I have to do is go to an 8 hour certifacation course. Of course there is more involved that she would help me with. Choriography, music selection, heck I can't even look at myself in the mirror while we are in class :). So it will take time but omg this is great! I am nervous. I haven't worked outside of the home in 15 years. I will definitely need my Spark buds to be here for me. I have my rockin crazy Zumba class tonight. I can't believe this week has gone by so fast. Rock on!
Adam was in a great mood yesturday. He told me this morning that he is going to talk to his swim instructor about how him coming out at school may affect his relationship with the guys on the team next year. I thought that was very mature of him. He amazes me every day. Food for the day: I had cup of cottage cheese, 2 squares of dark chocolate, broiled ham, asparagus. Last blog had breakfast and snacks. I'm feeling much healthier every day lately. I actually did some cleaning and organizing yesturday. I'm headed to breakfast with Joe at our favorite little hole in the wall. I always have my eggbeater omlette with ham and tomatoes. Yum! Have a great day!

    Amazing! An instructor! THAT is a great compliment in itself. You sound very excited and it's infectious!

Good that you got some cleaning in. I got on the treadmill this morning!

Things seem to be getting busy at your place for other things than just your son. You are getting on too. It's great!
