Hi friends...

Friday, June 10, 2011

So happy its Friday! I'm feeling kinda down today. There is something about those parents at Boy Scouts that find a way of making me feel inadequate. They just do. I really don't like them. Last night I got to talk to a friend from high school whose son is pretty new to Boy Scouts. She brought me right back to school and I said some stupid things that I'm sure many others heard. I feel bad that Josh is such a great kid and I just don't feel I can deal with these parents that just are so rightious. Oh well here I am... Complaining and whining. Oh well. Today will be better. I'm going to a picninc with a friend today and will do a little Zumba tonight. I think we will be going to the movies tonight. Sorry about my debbie downer moment. Food wasn't great yesturday. Could have been worse. Today will be better.

    I really admire people who can be good parents like you, in the world we live in it is hard to even keep ourselves going let alone be the strength of your family. I really think you deserve a slap on the back emoticon

    I took a parenting class yesterday (voluntarily, we don't beat our child...yet). har har. We were surrounded by parents who were court ordered to be there and it was hard for me to not judge them. The thing is though, is that "hurt people hurt people". I was feeling really paranoid what our child was sharing with the rest of her room down the hallway and was feeling really guilty by identifying with some character defects the instructor was talking about in general terms to the entire class. Most of the time if a parent is fluffing up their peacock feathers it's to make up for something that's going on deep down inside that they really feel inadequate about. I'm glad your day wasn't horrible food wise and that yes, today is a new day. That's the true blessing in life, isn't it? I'm glad you were able to keep your side of the street clean so you didn't need to eat crow today.

Next time just picture everyone naked and if all else fails, you can flip people off when your hands are in your pockets and they'll never know.

    It hurts to be around people that think that they are above you or righteous. They will have their judgement day.

I know about feeling inadequate. I usually feel that way all of the time in the public where the kids play sports. I try to be upbeat and the kids like me, the parents very seldom have anything to do with me. They're polite, but that's about it.

It doesn't matter most of the time. I just let the kids love me and the heck with the fuddy duddies!

Hope that you feel much better later on today.

So I got my mulching done. Yeah! Since January my priority has not been house maintenance or yard upkeep and just doing that made me feel like I'm kinda getting back to me. I had lunch with my friend from high school. That was hard. It's funny I live my life day by day lately with new stuff happening, dealing, moving on and not looking back. I knew I wanted her to know every step we've taken so she will understand what her position should be. What I forgot is what it would feel like to purge all those emotions and feelings of what we've been through since January. We are good now. I told her that but to relive it in one hour was mentally exhausting. She was pretty good. She wanted to know how I was doing. Which is exactly what I needed from my friend of 22 years. Mostly the people I've talked to I've focused on how Adam is doing. How Josh is doing. I couldn't even talked to my mother about how I'm doing because she couldn't handle it. So that was comforting. She did say some unconscious uneducated things. I explained in a round about way how others can say things that are uneducated and she got my points. She texted me this morning and I think we are really good. It was exhausting but had to be done. I came home and worked on my song for Zumba. It's hard! It's hard to learn a song and know the routine backwards and forwards. That is one song! I need to know 12 songs! It will happen but it will take time. Time I got! It's a great distraction. Sooooooo I went to my mother inlaws for a Pampered Chef party last night. OMG what a train wreck!!!!!! Honestly I know we all have skeletons in our closet but WOW! I won't even get into it all here! It's just tooooooo much. It's sad. I will pray for all of them. Needless to say I came home and just colapsed from all of it. This morning I woke up really dizzy. Not sure whats up. We had something at Josh's school for children chosen for student of the month since January. Josh was March :) It was so nice to have all the principles acknoledge how awesome our son is. Of course we know :) but its nice to have Josh here such positive words spoken about him. He is so strong and amazing. We are blessed. Joe and I went to breakfast and had a really nice talk. He drove me to my moms. I was still dizzy. We comisserated on the said train wreck of last night and did some shopping at Target. I'd like to work on my song again today but we will see how this dizziness holds out. We have a boy scout cookout tonight. Where they will honor my handsome son Josh once again! I don't know how we will get his head in the door tonight :). Food choices were great again yesturday! I was way to nervous at the party to eat or even drink last night. So positive effect of train wreck! Food good again today! Have a great day!

    Are you sure you are eating enough? Or maybe to much sugar?

I get vertigo when I spin around or if I am on a swing. Things changed for me when I entered my 40ies. I use to be able to do all of these things non stop with not any problems at all. But not anymore.

Can you think of what may have happen or what you ate last evening? It could be nerves too. You sounded a bit tried about the lunch conversation with HS buddy. You never know.

I hope you feel better soon.

    I got confused at the first part until I re-read what you wrote. You have "So I got my mulching done" and what I had read the first time was, "So I got my mustache done".

My brain hurts now. hehehehe!

Yeah sped up reply of trials is draining and to do all that at once... yikes!

    Welcome to the world of thinking up new things! You know and I know that you will get your songs into place in time.

As for your dizziness? I hope that it's not too bad. I have been given gravol to aleviate the symptoms sometimes. It might help.

Oh yeah...Make sure that you have a pin to poke on Josh if his head gets too big! emoticon

Take care of yourself.

Feeling good today!

I'm going to do some mulching this morning before it gets to the mid nineties this afternoon. I'm having lunch with my high school friend. She has said some comments about gay people lately and she needs to know that Adam is gay. I feel like I am in a good place to talk to her now. I know this will be ebbs and flows but now I feel really good. School is almost out and Adam seems great. He is very content with who he is and where he is in his life. As a mom that is all we can wish for. So I will let her know and let her deal with her feeling on it. This is not my problem to sort out. Adam auditioned for a play with his friend Tori. She is the first person, besides Joe and I that Adam told. They both got great parts. So funny, Tori is supposed to be his love interest in the play. :) Adam smiled when he told me. I told him well that will be some good acting... There is a boy who is a choriographer for the play that Tori wants to introduce Adam too. I'm trying not to think too far ahead about it. The summer camp play isn't until August so why waste time worrying about it. Food was good yesturday. I need to get some more healthy stuff in the house. I will shop some more today. I got some good info from the instructor from my class yesturday. The women in the class were so positive. One said, You are an inspiration! You made a goal and took the steps to make it happen! That was so nice! Another said it couldn't have happened to a nicer person! So sweet. Those people and my Sparkers have helped me grow soooo much this year! I thank you! Have a great day!

Feeling better!

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

Thank God I'm feeling much better this morning than yesturday morning. I watched 2 DVD's we got at certification. They had alot of choryography. I'll start with one song and move on from there. I actually went to my hip hop class last night. I had to be easy on myself. My body wouldn't have it any other way :). I got to talk to some girls in the class about my certification and they were great about it. I had a Mr. Subb wrap for dinner and a cocktail to help calm my body down after class. I talked to one of the girls in class about her Weight Watchers program. I really need to work on my food. Lord knows that I'm getting enough exercise in. It's like I have to be absolutely perfect for a while to make anything happen. Turning 40 was like my metabolism driving like a BMW to a tricycle. It doesn't seem to burn anything. I'm going to really focus now on the food i chose. I will make this happen. I'm in the drivers seat of whatever I am driving. I will focus on my food choices. Have a good day my friends!

  New studies say that people who sit in an office all day need more than an hour a day of strenuous exercise. It sounds like you are getting plenty of it and Ihave no idea if you sit a lot or not. Good luckT I understand the Tricycle metabolism, seems I have had it most of my life!

    it is a combination of diet and exercise that worked for me. I love the food tracker it really opened my eyes to some eating habits I was not aware of.
Good luck on your journey

    I know what you mean. I feel I exercise more than enough. Especially knowing that exercise is just 20% of weight loss. The other 80% is nutrition. Yikes! Still we did manage to lose weight so we must be doing something right! Right?

Glad you are learning your routines. Good Luck!
