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!

Having a good Wenesday.

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

I'm in a good place today. I'll take it. My clothes are fitting so much better. All these dance classes are really starting to help me with my body as well as my mind. As I'm getting to a better place my food choices are getting back on board. I'm also not searching for a glass or two of wine every night as well. I know there will be many days on the rollercoaster but lately it's felt like one of those kiddy train rides instead of the whopper cork screw coasters emoticon.
I met with my therapist today (if you couldn't tell). She said we are doing everything right. Which is nice to hear but doesn't make things easier. She said I'm handling my mother very well. My mom is going to see her next Wenesday and I think that will be good for her. I hope within the next few sessions we can start working on me. I could use some help myself :). Can't we all.
Adam is home today. He was throwing up all night. So I get to baby him all day :). He feels much better now so we are just watching some old classic Looney tunes :).
I have a Zumba class tonight. Yeah! It's the class where I will get to talk to the girl who thinks I should be an instructor. We will see how that goes. I'll keep you updated. Hope you are all having a good day! Food: I had an egg with tomatoe and bacon on ciabatta bread. Not very healthy but comforting before my session. A cup of cottage cheese. half cup of activia yogurt with a sliced banana. I plan on having salmon salad with some steamed brocolli for dinner.

Happy Tuesday.

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Adam came home fine yesturday. He said Shirag had been joking that his watch was gay. He asked why does every watch you wear look gay. Adam brought him away from the crowd and told him. Shirag smiled and Adam said I'm serious i'm gay. He said ok and he'd try to be serious about it. Adam texted him about it at home if he had any questions. Shirag said no but he was just surprised. He was good last night but seemed preoccupied this morning. I had a Cobb salad for lunch and Activia with sliced apple for a snack. I ended up having a carton of lowfat cottage cheese for dinner with a piece of boneless chicken breast. I had a 90 calorie chocolate chip granola bar, and two single weight watchers toffee ice cream popsicles after my hip hop dance class. I felt kinda sick all day yesturday but I knew from the stress I needed to expend some energy. I thought I wouldn't dance my best but anything would be better than no calories burned on the couch. I had a pretty good workout considering. I woke up feeling kinda sick again today. yuck. I'm realizing Easter is only a couple weeks away and I'll be hosting 24 people for a sit down dinner. I have to admit I have been extremely lax on my house. I have a lot to do. So I will be good to myself but work on this house too. I have a Zumba class at 9 30am. Not sure if I'm up to it. I'll rest for a bit and see how I feel. I hope you all have a great day!

    Cottage Cheese is one of my staples you will always find in my fridge but I always have fruit with it.

    Just remember, all those people coming to your house for dinner on Easter are there to see and visit with you and your family, they aren't there to inspect your house. They won't notice or care if the house is a bit dusty or cluttered. :-)

    Hey, I too have a 9:30am Zumba class. And I am definitely going!!! I even wearing new sneakers that I bought for this class. Maybe we could be virtually workout buddies today.

It sounds like Adam is doing fine with his openness. Good for him. I have not read your blogs of late....not be very supportive huh? I am not sure why they don't show up on my friend feed? I truly try to pick and read several a day.

Please remember I am always a click away!!

    Hi friend, there you go the world did not implode. Adam survived and his friend understood. Teenagers do see everything as life and death. its only as we age that the grey spreads. I'm sorry that you are not feeling well but just hang in there and remember "you should come first in your life" I think you handled your mother correctly also. The less ammunition you give her the less she can hurt you.
Take care of you.
