Class number 3....

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Uggggggggg.....I'm so nervous again. Not nervous like I can't eat...or I think I'm going to be sick. Nervous none the less. I am feeling better before each class though... so thats improvement. I was sooooo off yesterday. The day did get better. I didn't yell at anyone....thanks to my Sparkies who offered their ear :). Food was amazing. Well I did have a skinny cow ice cream cone in the afternoon :). I figured it was better than raiding the ice cream stand down the street. Yes? I baked skinless, boneless chicken thighs for dinner. With rosemary, pepper and a bit of salt. It was such a hit! Yum! I had a salad with mango salsa and cucumbers. We watched the last repeat of Glee! Yay! Next week the new season begins and omg we are beside ourselves! That show made our lives possible this year and we can't wait to have it back. It's like a warm soft blanket you can't wait to wrap around you at the end of the day. Omg sooo nervous about this class. I will keep you updated on how it goes. I'm getting my hair colored today. Yay! I feel so much better when my hair is done. So girly :). Have a great day friends!

    That Skinny Cow stuff can be a lifesaver sometimes, right? You do so much, you deserve your girly moments. Will we have pics of the new hair?

    Great that your day got better. It's so nice to have things just go away.

I am sure that you will do well with your class.

Cranky....

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

I woke up from a bad dream. I woke in a bad mood. Yuch. I am totally pmsing and not really looking forward to the day. My dad called me last night and was really upset because he and my mom were arguing. Ugggg...I tried to give him some coping skills and let him know that I've had one hell of a year and they would have to deal with this on their own. I 've never done that before. I'm usually the mediator in their marriage. Isn't that wrong? With my own therapy this year I've realized that is not my job. So I calmly told him to call the therapist in the morning. Drink some water. Talk to God and let it be for the night. One day at a time and all that....Then hung up. So that ended my night really crappy and I haven't gotten out of that funk. I'm headed to my Zumba class in an hour and I hope that will help. I didn't work on any choreography yesterday. I will work on a song today. I will run through my routine tonight. I need to do some more cleaning today. Food was awesome yesterday. I've had my greek yogurt this morning. Have a great day.

    ABSOLUTELY! THEY SHOULDN`T BE PUTTING YOU IN THE MIDDLE! THEY SHOULD DEFINITELY BE WORKING OUT THEIR DIFFERENCES THEMSELVES OR WITH PROFESSIONAL HELP
GOOD FOR YOU FOR HANDLING IT THE WAY YOU DID!

HAVING THE Greek yogurt IS A VERY GOOD CHOICE FOR A FEEL GOOD FOOD CHOICE. GO AHEAD HAVE SOME MORE!

THEN MAKE YOURSELF A HUGE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE SALAD I PROMISE IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL EVEN BETTER!

ROMAINE LETTUCE
TOMATO
RED ONION
MUSHROOMS
1 TSP CHOPPED WALNUTS
CANTALOUPE
BLUEBERRIES
STRAWBERRIES
HONEY DEW

YOU DON`T EVEN NEED A DRESSING! THE MIX TASTES GREAT ALL ON IT`S OWN!


IF YOU KNOW YOU ARE PMSING MAKE SURE YOU CUT WAY BACK ON YOUR SODIUM TO DIVERT BLOATING!

    I have never had my parents call me when they were arguing. I don't even call anyone when I am arguing with my guy.

As far as I'm concerned, it's NOT your job to be their mediator. That only puts you into the frey and you get burned for it. You are so right to tell your Dad that there is no way that you should be involved in it.

Yay for you to finally put him in his place. I bet he was surprised. LOL.

Your class will put you in a better mood. Yay for endorphins!

Have a better day.

    It sounds like a good day except for that phone call. You are not required to be anybody's therapist unless you are licensed and getting paid. It's good to be a listener, and if they ask for advice you can give your 2 cents, but beyond that, just let their problems roll off your back like water off a duck. If they have a problem with that, then that's THEIR problem, not yours. Your parents are adults, they can and will solve their problems one way or another, with our without your help. So don't take it too seriously. Just be a good listener, then when you're off the phone, put it out of your mind. Because ultimately whatever you say won't matter anyway, they will do what they will do...

Have a good day! Don't worry about your parents!

    You have a lot to be proud of Miss Cranky!!! You did something that must have been very difficult for you to do. And, yes, I believe cardio always helps the mood. Have a wonderful day! emoticon

Boy yesturday was tough.

Monday, September 12, 2011

We watched alot of coverage of 9/11. It was necessary but painful. It brought everything back so vividly. For my kids this was brand new and it was awful to see their faces and know what this was doing to their psyche. They need to know. They need to understand but I watched a piece of their innocence gone forever. Terrorists did this. We started the day with a 3 hour special about it. I decided we needed to get out for a while and wash this off. So we met Joe's cousin and her new husband for lunch. That was awesome. They went to Hawaii for their honeymoon and it was so fun to see pix and talk about such an amazing part of our country. It made us so excited for our trip to Kona next month! They are a wonderful couple and the kids have a blast with them. I had a burrito bowl with pulled pork, salsa, lettuce and guacamole. Yum! We ran errands...bought a new camera for our trip, bought Josh some sneakers, I got some cute things for our trip at Gap Body then went to Staples to pick up Adams school supplies. We headed home and the boys did their homework. I was still bummed about the day so we ended up treating ourselves to barbaque by the river. Yum again! It was a gorgeous crisp evening. One that deserves a soft sweatshirt. I had pulled pork again :) Some cucumber and tomatoe vinegrette salad and chopped salad. Yum. We treated ourselves with splitting some extremely decatent desserts and headed home. There was a moving documentary on tv when we got home about the fireman of New York that day. It was so difficult to watch. I'm so glad we did but....Wow! So for once I'm thrilled its Monday and I"m ready to start a new week. I'm going to work on some new choreography for my class and get some cleaning done around here. Enjoy your Monday!

    Yes death and dieing are difficult to watch at any time so that would be something difficult for children to take in What age are they. I`m glad you broke it up with something light after.

Lunch sounded divine too! Give me ideas LOL

    So sorry, I could only read half your blog. I am not ready to read about more death right now. I do have empathy for your sons. I hope they will not be frighten or anxious by this event. It was truly a tragic story. I actually work there back in 1993 when the first attempt was made. And my brother (who just passed away) was there (mid-town) that day in 2001. It is just too much to think about.

    I don't think 9/11 should get easier - it should be a remembrance for our country.

What an awesome class...!

Sunday, September 11, 2011

I feel awesome! Class was a huge success! People came up to me after class to tell me how great I am! Yay! When I told them this was only my second class they couldn't believe it! :) Thank God! Thank God! I am feeling much better about all of this. I knew there was a reason I pushed myself. I had some yummy chicken parm..minus cheese for dinner. I deserved it after my day. Oh I forgot to mention that I also went to a Zumba event after my class and dance another 90 minutes!!!! I know crazy right? My mentor was hosting it and I felt it necessary to be there. I did it and was shocked at how I could handle it! Yay! Life is good! So I'm ready for more classes! Today is the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. I am watching the news coverage with my 13 year old who was in preschool the day it happened. We are very moved and my heart sinks for thoses who were directly affected by this tragedy. My prayers are for all who have lost someone. Please hug those you love today and lets be thankful for our amazing country and for those heros who've given their lives for us.

  My great great nephew was born today, friends celebrated birthdays and anniversaries yesterday because the actual birthday and anniversaries are today. Every day we are reminded, especially in this military area, that things are different. Yet, we are still a country of the free and the brave.

Late blog today!

Saturday, September 10, 2011

I taught my second class today. They loved me! They really loved me! :) I was subbing at a different gym and had no idea what to expect. It went soooo well! Students actually came up to me at the end to tell me how much they loved it! Yay! I feel so much better about everything. Score! Are you ready for this???? I then went to a Zumba event where I dance for another 90 minutes!!! Holy cow! I'm crazy! :) I think I could use some of the choreography for my class. We will see. I came home and took an hour hot shower.....ok not really an hour.... I finally ate something substantial and just sat down to spark. :) Hi! Food has been crazy good so I'm having some yummy chicken parm...minus cheese for dinner. OH Yeah! We will head out to church soon and then having Joe's sisters family for dinner and relaxing time :). Have a great day!

    You are living on a high! What a great time you must have had. I think that it would be kind of weird with actually having others following me! You did great.
