Hi friends...

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Doing really well with food the past few days. I feel sooooo much better. But then emotions are felt. Thats always tough for me. I had a great Zumba class yesturday. The instructor offered me a job already!!!!! I haven't even been certified yet. Wow! So in the fall I will be teaching in a local high school doing a continuing ed Zumba class. I'm so psyched! Nervous but psyched! Did some shopping with mom. I had a Cobb salad for lunch and pork tenderloin with broccoli for dinner. I had some cottage cheese for snack. I also had greek yogurt with truvia and a half cup of Activia plain yogurt for snack too. I'm going to see my therapis today. I thought I'd be able to work on me a bit today but no. Adam said he wants to go on the website...itgetsbetter.org and send in his video of his story of coming out. I'm concerned. I don't even have them on facebook. He says these stories help save people's lives. I have been on this site and it is awesome. Still it makes me nervous. Strangers seeing my son on the internet. So I will talk it out with her. I 'm so happy I'll be seeing her. Having lunch with Joe. Going to my Zumba tonight. Have a great day!

  You will be working on you! Your fear of strangers seeing your son on the internet is a part of who you are. We are so multi dimensional that working on something that is seemingly about someone else often is really about ourselves. It might not be the part of you that you had chosen for talking about with the therapist but it is still a part of who you are and what you feel.

    Don't know much about the site. I know that I would be nervous too.

As for you with the job offer! Great! You will do well. I know you will.

    Hi I knows that site and it seems Ok to me I prefer Gay Christian network but when I see how many of the youth are committing suicide I support anyone who wants to take action against intolerance.

    Maybe you will have time to address Adam's thing and also some of your own things to the therapist...

Just watching Oprah and had to blog...

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I've watched Oprah for all 25 years. I am 40 now and she has been there with me through everything. High school troubles, boyfriends, college, marriage, young children and now teenagers. I feel like I should be one of those people on stage telling her how much she helped me. This year more than ever. There have been many shows since October when my son came out that he is gay. Episodes with Ricky Martin, a female country singer, and episodes of shows in the past 2 decades of people being gay. Adam has sat with me and watched these episodes and felt better. She has helped Adam and I connect without words at a time he wasn't able to talk too much yet. These guests really started... it gets better... for our family. So thanks Oprah! And thanks friends! I guess I'll be coming to Spark at 4pm when I'm missing my girl!

    I remember racing home from school in the 6th grade to catch her show. Oprah and I have been through a lot! LOL. I agree with you that her shows have truly helped me and I wish I could express that to her. I haven't watched in a few years because i have basically stopped watching tv. (I had become an addict so I had to pull away).

    I don't know if I ever watched a full Oprah show. I remember at least once seeing part of one. I've never been a talk-show fan. But if I were to watch a talk-show, it would probably have been hers. She's a pretty amazing woman.

    Oprah Oprah Oprah!!!!

I have seen her in person and she is so real and so beautiful. (She had makeup on) LOL! I could tell she is a very caring woman. She even thanked her audiance for taking the trouble to get up at an ungodly hour and take the time to look good for the show.

I am so glad you and your son were able to experience the special Oprah moments together.

    Beautiful sentiment of acceptance. On a lighter note I know that if I'm being attacked in a parking garage I can stab my attacker with my keys. Way to learn from Oprah!

Back on track!

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

One day with less simple carbs and I feel much better all ready. My body just doesn't perform well with that stuff in it. Its amazing since starting this jounrey 15 months ago I have learned so much. I feel what food really does to my body. Good or bad. When I eat healthy stuff I feel light, clear minded, ready to take on the world. When I eat simple carbs. Granola bars, Pop chips, rice cakes, breads Uggg, I feel like crap. NOw some of these sound not so unhealthy but in my body they bring out the cranky Snookums. The Snookums whose stomache feels hard and heavy. A Snookums whose head is fussy and tired. A Snookums whose body is sluggish and tired. So I will stick to carbs like broccoli, yogurt, berries, and cottage cheese. These carbs are healthy also and make me feel strong and slim. I think I might have been sabotaging myself with the certification of Zumba coming up. I tend to do that when I'm going to do something uncomfortable and new. I will work on that. Last night I had an awesome Zumba class. With less of that heavy feeling I rocked that class :). I have my positive wonderful women to look forward to at this mornings Zumba class. Have a great day friends!

    Sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and that you've discovered what works, and what doesn't for you. Keep up the momentum.

    Yes, bad carbs will get you every time but looks like you're going for the good stuff!

    Yay, you! Listening to our bodies is so important...like you said, even though things don't sound bad, for you, they just don't work...You know your body and you will learn all you need to do to make it run at its best!

You are going to be an amazing Zumba instructor! emoticon

    You are lucky to have to many offered Zumba classes. I could only go to Tuesday Mornings, and use to be able to go to Monday afternoon and Saturday mornings but the last two stop because Logan and Sylvia both have practice on Monday and a game on Saturday. And the very few other dance class offered was not good for me.

I knew chips were not healthy but granola bars? Rice cakes? and all breads, even whole wheat? Seriously? Or is it you just found out that is what works for you?

Never do a double blog but....

Monday, May 23, 2011

Soooooooo bummed. Needed to blog it out... Just found out I am not going with hubby to Colorado. I really could've used this trip. The company is making it employees only. I kinda thought it was strange a couple other wives weren't going. Now I know. Kinda mopey around here and it would be easy to just binge these feelings away. So instead I will blog. I will go to the gym and dance it out tonight. I will have salmon and broccoli for dinner tonight. So my knew goal is to get bathing suit ready for July 8th. This is when we are leaving for St. Petersburg, Florida. Vaca with family. So I still have a goal. Have to keep moving forward. We did win a night in Cooperstown, New York. I will make reservations for the weekend before Joe leaves. Thats our anniversary weekend anyway. So lets keep perspective and not make this an excuse for being bad to our body. I've noticed that the past few weeks I've added more carbs to my diet and I've also felt bad. Hmmmm... will cut back and see if I feel better. Will work on getting more water in me. I've had a egg white omlette with low fat cheese, spinach and tomatoes. I had half a cup of plain lowfat greek yogurt with truvia sweetener. Lunch was yummy. Awesome chop salad. Thanks for being here Spark! Don't know what I'd do without you! Yes I do! I'd eat all the ice cream left in the freezer!

    I love egg white with cheese. emoticon emoticon

Don't be bummed. Do some fun day stuff with your sons or girlfriends. Day spa with the girls and dinner at a fun restaurant with the boys another day. Maybe rock climbing with your sister in law. Next thing you know it DH is back from trip.

Looking for Serenity? Its found in Lake Placid!

Monday, May 23, 2011

What an awesome place. Just love it!!!! I feel so close to my boys...all 3 of them :) the minute we get into the village. We sat at lunch and Adam who is at that age where its hard to get info from just talked. It was great. We sat by the serene motor boat free lake for a while in our Adirondack chairs. Listening to the water hit the rocks and the breeze on our faces. A goofy joke would pass from Adam to Joe every once in a while and Josh and I would roll our eyes at each other. It was perfect. Had some chocolate chip cookies at The Mirror Lake Inn. Gorgeouse old resort set back from the village. Did a little shopping and headed home. God has blessed that part of the world. Got home and the kids still had homework :(. So Joe and I went to the sports bar down the street. I had a good chef salad and a glass of wine. I had a yummy chop salad at the brewery in Lake Placid. I am determined to get myself back on track with food. I'm going to have a yummy omlette for breakfast and will eat healthy for my health and darn it if I don't I have to shop for bigger clothes. I will not do that!!!! That's it! I'm here! I'm in!!!! Have a great day my friends!

    It is so wonderful that you and your family can spend some quality time together. I always teach in Baptism classes (and being Anglican its infant baptism) how important it is for families to have this kind of interaction. In our busy modern world this is so easily overlooked so I'm really glad you are having fun.
