Happy Saturday!

Saturday, July 02, 2011

Hubby mentioned again this morning that I am so much thinner! Love it! I understand what friends here have blogged lately about sabatoging ourselves. This is about when I would do that. I'm not going to. I will not. Vaca is in 8 days! 8 days! Feeling so good and I won't do it. We are getting alot done here today already! The dumpster will be gone Tuesday and we have to get it done. I had plain greek yogurt for breakfast and a handful of almonds for snack. I 'm ready to take on another day of healthy eating and living. I will not sabatoge myself! I will not. We will be going to our friends house tonight that we haven't told about Adam. Joe's been the one who wants to tell them. I would have a while ago but he wanted to tell the husband. The wife has issues. We aren't sure how she will be so it will be better for Joe to tell him and he can tell his wife and ease her into it. There son is Josh's best friend so I hope it goes well.

Friday baby!

Friday, July 01, 2011

So Friday's are usually my favorite but sadly hubby is working. He will get a 3 day weekend because of it though. So tomorrow will be my Friday. Had a crazy awesome Zumba class again last night. Love it!!!!!!! My body felt it the rest of the night! Yeah! Feeling good, feeling strong. We did get more into the dumpster but we will need to do much more today. We are having a cookout here on Monday so that should be fun. I'm considering going to a Zumba class tonight. I usually use today as my rest day but there is no class tomorrow so that will be rest. I guess we will see what the family wants to do tonight. I ate awesome again yesturday. Greek yogurt for breakfast, handful of almonds for snack, chop salad for lunch, activia yogurt for snack, cottage cheese and salmon salad for early dinner, then a small piece of chicken with asparagus for late dinner after Zumba. I'm really getting alot more water in lately. I'm feeling really good about that. I haven't worked on water in a long time and I do feel much better when I work it in. Still doing planks, crunches and upper armwork in the morning. I'm seeing progress with this and feeling stronger. I'm really feeling alot more like myself these days. Even with the set back of my friends disappointment I didn't eat my feelings. I cried alot! Alot! But that is healthy right? So that was huge! I will be very healthy this weekend. The picnic is at our house this year and I will make sure there is a veggie tray and fruit tray sitting right in front of me. I will be busy preppping and cleaning up so will be very distracted from the kids chips and dips :). I will rock that bathing suit in 9 days and love my vaca!

    You are doing good by not letting your friend take you down the road of emotional eating. I do hope that things get better for you and your son.

Keep up the great attitude.

Thanks Sparkies...

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Thanks for being here for my moments. I really, honestly don't know what I would do without you all this year. I'm in a much better place today. I will put my questions about Mike on the back burner and keep my text about Adam or not at all. Things are good. We went to see Transformers last night. Omg! I don't think I have been to a movie with more testosterone running through it! So funny. The firt 2 hours were fun but the last hour was torturous. It wouldn't end. Robot upon robot. Fighting for an hour. Ugggg! I told all 3 boys :) that I get 2 chick flicks for this one :). I was amazing with the food again yesturday. Greek yogurt for breakfast, chop salad for lunch, activia for snack, flaxseed small turkey wrap with veggies for dinner. NOOOOO popcorn or candy at the movies! My husband and boys had both...including my favorite...Reese's cups! I was good. :) On our way out of the movie my friends daughter texted Josh and they texted for about 10 minutes without a word about Adam. I thought that was interesting. We will see. We were on guard. We even had Mike on stand by for guidence but nothing. We will see. No workout yesturday but will be going to my crazy fun Zumba class tonight. Yeah! Have a good day my friends and thanks again for talking me down yesturday. I soooo appreciate the words and will refer back to them if need be.

    I might be seeing that movie this weekend with my S.O. I mean he really wants to see it but I am like, "let's wait until after premere weekend." which makes him groan and moan his displeasure. LOL

Just an update

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Thank you friends for all of your advise. I wrote this blog and left for the gym. On my way there I called my awesome friend from college that I know I can confide in without it going anywhere. I spewd all that stuff to her and she talked me through it as well. She thinks from what I've told her there hasn't been a line crossed yet. She understand where I'm coming from and maybe unless it's about Adam we shouldn't be texting right now. I think that is sage advise because... I went into the gym and found out there was a subtitute teacher for my class and she is not good. I decided I needed to leave. I got in my car to head home. I was at the stop light and just knew I couldn't go home yet. I needed time to figure things out in my head. I got on the innerstate and headed north. I just kept driving. Sometimes this is very therapeatic for me. I put on the radio and after about 20 minutes I heard Carrie Underwoods song Jesus take the wheel. In that moment I felt God speaking to me. I realized I had this whole conversation with Kate and never once mentioned our friend texting Adam about her uneducated view of him. I couldn't believe it when I realized this. This was huge to me. I realized that I had been deflecting my horribly hurt feelings for my friend who has put this in her beautiful daughters head. I had tried to focus on something and someone that I know in my heart would never hurt me so I didn't have to deal with the unbelieveable hurt I just couldn't go to. I started to cry. I couldn't believe I was crying again.... Sometimes I feel like there could not be another tear in me and here we go with the waterworks. I cried for miles. Until I was done. Headed the 45 minute drive home and met my friend from college for lunch with the boys. I told her how I felt and she smiled. I'm not saying I won't be aware of things. I will. Mike texted me minutes after I got home and sent a beautiful message about how great we are as parents and are doing an amazing job. He could tell last night especially with Josh's answers to subtle questions he would pose. He could tell how disappointed I was with my lifelong friend. It was innocent and helpful. I will take it all one day at a time. I know that God is carrying me even when I feel so lost. I know my Sparkfriends are as well and I am blessed.

Hi friends

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

Worried about hubby. I think he is fighting that summer bug that the rest of us had in this house. Unfortunately he is soooo busy at work there is no way he can stay home and rest. We got the dumpster yesturday and already started on the garage. Yeah! Feels good to purge ourselves of stuff. I have such a weird thing to talk about today. Our friend Mike told us weeks ago that he's thinking of getting involved with women again. He has in the past and was just so disappointed in men that there are things about women he loves. I told him we would love him whether he was with women or men. He thanked me and said I will never know how much that means to him. All of this through texts. Since then sometimes his texts to me seem kinda flirty. Of course telling me how awesome I am. He always did but now it kinda seems different. I've told him from the get go about how great he is and that anyone would be lucky to have him. That was always under the assumption that he liked guys. It made me feel safe to talk to him this way. I guess I didn't change the way I communicated with him and I just don't know. One day he texted, I'm just crazy about you. Don't tell Joe. I texted back I think he knows :). and he responded Darn. Now back when I thought he just liked guys I would have thought it was adorable and good for my ego. Now I'm not so sure. I've felt so uncomfortable that while Joe was away I didn't text him. Just wasn't sure how he would be. I think I've enjoyed the innocent flirting. I never would have spent this much time texting any man except with what we have been going through with Adam I needed his support and info on how to deal with everything correctly. He has always been such compimentary guy and so great for my ego but always innocent because there was no threat him coming on to me. I'm not sure if I should burden Joe with this. I could be overreacting. Last night we all went out for ice cream and I felt a bit uncomfortable. I'm worried I was leading him on with sweet things I said and I don't want that at all. I'm feeling I should say something to Joe. I just don't want this to be a thing. I'm glad I have spark to think this out. He has been so amazing with Adam and a friend of ours for years. I don't want this to make things weird or have Joe think badly of him. Anyway, food was great yesturday until I got ice cream. It was sugar free but still. Will be better today. I could be completely overreacting. I'm not sure.

    I wonder how many innocent relationships have been complicated by sms.
(just a personal theory I have about sms) You really should not feel guilty, if he has changed the rules on you. maybe you should just tell him how happily married you are and how much you love Joe. (a bit over the top if necessary) that way neither of you need be embarrassed, however if that doesn't stop him I would tell him straight out. In my personal feelings it is best not to beat about the bush if you feel confused.

    Hope Husby kicks this fast! No fun being sick and not being able to rest.

As for the friend, I think the others below have shared the best wisdom.

    Talk to Mike, let him know how you're feeling. Maybe you can email or text him because that's easier than face to face. Me, personally, I would tell my husband, but everyone's different. You know your husband better than anyone.

    i personally think you should talk to Mike first and if you still think something is serious then talk to Joe about this. it might not be anything and if you tell Joe first, things may turn out for the worse if things get out of control. you might be able to work it out with Mike first and then you can calmly explain things to Mike after that. Ii hope your DH feels better very soon, being sick in the summer can really be bad.

    No, don't tell Joe. Some things are left better unsaid. Talk with Mike, work things out with him instead. You wish to keep him for a friend then don't give reason for Joe to be weary of Mike. Let Mike know that it's all innocent flirting and you enjoy it but you want to make it clear that it will never go any further. Read your blog to him if you feel you'll get nervous and can't say it directly. Let him know you value his friendship more than anything else. Strength to you! Hugs, Keke

    This is Random, as I don't know you and this is the first blog of yours I've read, but if you think you should tell Joe, then you should tell Joe. Not telling him will make you feel like you are hiding something and it will be a seed that can manifest in other areas of your relationship. I have been in situations where I thought things were harmless friendships, that turned into more and it became a whole ordeal until it is faced and dealt with. If Mike truly values your friendship you can be honest with him about how you feel about it and tell him that you are a little uncomfortable with the direction your friendship might head. It's all easier said than done, but you will feel better for the honesty, and it will weed out anything that might come in between you and Joe. Good luck, hang in there!!!
