Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Hope all is well for all of my Sparkfriends this Thanksgiving. Enjoy time with family and friends and be good to you! I went to a Zumba fundraiser for our local food pantry. It was great to get a good workout in before all the calories go in :). Josh did our local Turkey Trot 5K. I'm so proud :) Adam slept in while Joe brought Josh to his race. I came home and prepped the kitchen for our 2nd annual Thanksgiving breakfast. Joe's cousin Debbie who lost her husband to suicide 2 years ago yesterday came with her daughter. We just love them. Our beloved friend Mike came as well. I let him know how thankful we are for him this year. Now I can rest for a bit before heading to my sister in-laws. I want to thank my Sparkfriends for helping me through an amazing year. Without you....you know who you are... I don't think I could've been the mother I would want to and need to be for my son.. Bless you. Thank you for your words of encouragement and guidance through a year that has made my family closer and stronger than I could have ever imagined. I send love to you.

Wenesday...

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Woke up in much better spirits today. I think a few things were going on. We are having friends over for breakfast tomorrow and I do get a bit crazy before I have people over. I grew up with a mom who did this and I guess it was a learned trait. Also, usually if I'm aggitated like that I would have a glass of wine or two to mellow out. Well, since I'm not partaking it was difficult to chill out. I think that's why I've been eating poorly. The times I would have a glass to relax I am eating. I will work on this. I got a lot done here yesterday. Yay. So I'm feeling better about the company. Joe even noticed how nice the house looked. That helped my mood with him... We will have a lot of family togetherness this weekend. Thanksgiving of course....Friday night party for my niece's birthday...Saturday afternoon party for my niece and nephew's Confirmation. Same people for 3 straight days...So that should be interesting. I also told Joe I would be the designated driver on Thanksgiving. I'll keep you updated. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Be safe and find peace with all the family and food!

    You certainly have plenty of things going on and tons to worry about, please take it easy and be careful with all those get togethers. Sometimes I think that too much family can be a hazard to your health as much as anything covered in sugar or grease!

    You need to find another way to relax instead of reaching for the wine. I'm sure that there are other things a person can do.

Hope you have a good time and just be in the moment.

Hugs.

Hi Friends

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Stressful morning. My stomache doesn't feel well. Joe was looking for a bill today and was worried I had thrown it out. Now I have been known to do this. He leaves papers...actually everything....everywhere. I end up having to organize our entire life. Usually I don't mind this. He works very hard and I'm home so I tend to take care of the rest of the world here. Then moments like this come along and I want to scream. It's very easy for him to put the bills where I put them. A slot right next to the fridge. Very easy. He said it's been on the kitchen table for 5 days....See what I mean.... He could easily be a hoarder. ugggggg....I'm ready for Zumba. Soooo ready. He left and I ate a bagel....Ugggg....Not a great morning.

    You poor girl. My Mother goes through the same thing. My Dad puts things down and expects it to be there six months later and it's not.

Go to Zumba, and then relax. Phone the company where the bill came from and get a copy sent via email or something. You'll get through this.

Hugs.

Hello Monday

Monday, November 21, 2011

Ready to take on this week. I'm feeling better. Thank God. Mom is working and everyone has left for the day. I'm ready to take on the house. Get some cleaning in and buy a new table cloth for breakfast Thanksgiving morning. We go to my sister inlaws for Thanksgiving so its pretty easy going around here Thursday morning. I went to a new Zumba class yesterday with my new sneakers. They were awesome. The class was great and I found so mom's from Joshs class there. Very nice women and we really enjoyed it. I had to hold back still of course but I'm getting better every class. I wanted to try a class this morning but my foot didn't seem happy about it by last night. That's ok. Patience. The instructor was very encouraging. So nice. It's amazing how I really have to take care of myself because people want me back teaching like yesterday. So nice but destructive if I took them up on it. We went to the movies yesterday and saw In Time with Justin Timberlake. Yum :)... It was such an interesting story. I wish it was a book first. I'd love more details about what was really going on. So good. Aplus :). Food wasn't bad. Not fantastic but not bad. So ready for the day. Hope everyone is doing well. Oh yeah... there will be a Zumba class Thanksgiving morning and proceeds from the class will go to the local food bank. I'm ready for that too! Yay! An hour of Zumba means no guilt pie later in the day! :)

    Great to hear that the new sneaks are working out. And I will definitely have to do a workout DVD so I can have some no guilt pie! Great idea. And for a good cause too! Have a great Thanksgiving!

Hoping today will be better.

Sunday, November 20, 2011

I woke up feeling better than yesterday. I'm sitting and giving myself a moment. We did have such a nice time last night. We were celebrating my friends 1 year anniversary. How nice. My food choices were bad but I was just eating things that felt ok when my stomache was not doing well. So today will be better. No excuses. I want to go to Zumba today. So I will wait and see how I'm doing by noon. Hope everyone is having a great day. Oh... I notice a few friends asked about the new sneakers...They are Asics...ones that have roundish balls on the bottom instead of the usual running tread. So they are more of a cross trainer. Not much of a grip on the bottom which is better for the knees in Zumba. They are gel sneakers. I will let you know how I do with them.

    I have asic gel too. But they need to be replaced. I just ordered two pairs of sneakers but for my kickboxing and running. The two pairs of sneakers, well one is more of a slipper/shoe I used for Zumba turn out not to be that great. One bloch choose a soft style too soft for my ankles and the and the other nike. They would have been great but once I put them on and used them all day wondering why they felt strange I look at the sneaker and guess what? One was a size 5, (my usually size) and the other was a size 6! How the sales person not catch that is beyond me. Even more funny is that I would not be a 5 in this sneaker or a 6 but a 5 1/2!! As you mentioned not much traction and a lot of support! And gorgeous color...royal blue with bright yellow soles...
