Here we go

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

I ended up getting into a great place yesturday and I got alot done. Alot of laundry, gardening and organizing. It must have been all of that positive Spark energy sent my way. Thanks for that :). Then Adam came home. I guess there is a boy his friend wants hm to meet at a summer play audition on Sunday. Yes the day of my certification about an hour away. I had a discussion with him about dating at 15 and he just laughed and said he went on a couple of dates with girls. I told him that was when I knew he was gay :). We negotiated that if he does start dating this boy that they should be going out with friends as a group. There will be more conversations. Thats what us parents do right :) We keep talking until there isn't another thought in our head and hope something sticks. My food choices were awesome. I'm back. My Zumba class was great. I made some baked chicken with asparigus and wax beans ( only veggies Josh will eat). We sat out in the sunroom and enjoyed a beautiful warm breeze. So we will take this day by day.

    I haven't hit that dating stage as of yet. My son has a girl that is interested in him and she is very clingy. He is NOT interested in her. My DD1 laughs and said that one time when she was walking with him (brother) the girl came up to them and said Hi. (Then she gave a kind of dirty look to DD1). Boy, when DD1 came home, she sure had a big laugh.

Apparently, that girl didn't know that DD1 was a sibling. A sister. Not another girl (competition). LOL!

Good to know that you are doing much better and getting things done and just being you.

You are a great YOU!

    You're doing fine, and Adam will be alright. We all managed to get through the dating scene as teenagers, and he will too, even if it is a little more complicated with him. :-)

it's Tuesday.

Back to regular schedule. Kids left for school and Joe went to work early. I want to get it together today. I was at my sister inlaws for a picnic yesturday and she is always so together. Sometimes it's motivating sometimes it just feeds my insecurities and self loathing. This time was the latter. I will work on myself. I'm getting nervous about this certification Sunday. I'm trying not to but.... Food choices were awful yesturday. Chips, burger, hotdog, beer potatoe salad, pasta salad and two cookies. Yeah! I know! I will get back on track today. Going to my Zumba class this morning. That should help my mood. Joe and I are going to Cooperstown over night Thursday to Friday this week. I' glad we will have some time alone together. I need that. We are gonna golf Thursday afternoon and go to a nice relaxed dinner. Have a great day my friends and hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend.

    You are an awesome person and the way you face hardship in your life is fantastic. You really are worthy of love. try to put the past (especially negative experiences and hurtful words in the past) And LOVE YOU. if you can do the other stuff you can do that too. I'm routing for you.

    I so know what you mean about being around people that have it together and then feel so inadequate.

I finally decided NOT to compare myself to them. I mean that there are over achievers and then there are the relaxed kind of people. I prefer to be more relaxed. It's sometimes not easy, but it sure helps the self-esteem.

You will do fine for your certification. You have been told and asked by others that you are great. You'll be great.

Smiles and love to you, my friend!

Sunday baby...

Sunday, May 29, 2011

Joe and the boys are going to see Hangover 2 today. Not my bag so I'm headed to my Zumba class. I didn't get much gardening done so I need to shake by boodie today. We have a anniversary mass for the priest who married us 19 years ago. We will get together with friends tonight. Looking forward to that. Food was awesome yesturday. Greek yogurt for breakfast, yummy cobb salad for lunch and some pieces of low fat cheese and broccoli for dinner. I had a glass of wine with a friend later. It was great to spend some time with her. Joe brought the boys to see Kung Fu Panda. I'm in a very down place the last couple of days. Its a funk and even my supportive sister inlaw is sick of hearing it. The list thing hasn't helped. So I blog. I know I will figure it out. Time heals right? So I exercise, eat healthy and work on me. One day at a time.

    We all go through rough times. Mine has been going on awhile and I can't even workout the way I want too. I am swimming, walking and keeping up with strength training but no Kickboxing or Zumba that also heal my soul.

We will work this out together. emoticon

Hi Sparkies!

Saturday, May 28, 2011

Loved Bridesmaids!!!!! OMG soooooo funny! Had a great time with our friends. They are easy friends. The ones you see and no pressure. No sarcasm. Lots of positive energy. We went to PF Changs for appetizers. I did awesome with choices. I wasn't really hungery. We ordered edemame and chicken lettuce wraps. I only had one wrap and alot of yummy edemame. There were other more unhealthy things we ordered but didn't have any. They got popcorn and nachos at the movies and I didn't have any!!!! I know!!!! Just wasn't interested. I'll take it! Not every day is like this but I love the days I can give myself a gold star for food choices. I'm heading to a Zumba thon today. Money going toward cancer research. It's from 10 to 2. We will see how long I can boogie. It will give me an idea of how I will do at my certification. Joe is taking the boys to see Kung Fu Panda with their friends tonight and I'm hanging out with girlfriend whose hubby is away for work. That will be great! Hope all my Spark Peeps had a great Friday!
