So up and ate the leftovers in the fridge already! :( Not too bad but not a great start. Yesterday Joe and I headed out of town for lunch. It was so nice. I had a little pizza with soy mozzarella and eggplant, proscutto and olives on sourdough crust. Yum. I had the left over piece this morning. I had chicken marsala for dinner the night before and had the leftover of that as well. :( Could be worse but could be better. Adam did great at sectionals. Yay! So I'll be better here out. Quiet day and fun night to come. The kids are on winter break this week. Yay! Not too much planned but that can be a good thing. Have a great day!

Hello Thursday

Thursday, February 16, 2012

What a boring day emoticon...The sun has not shown itself much here lately. Ugggg... I need the sun. I'm so happy that I'm able to dance again but it reminds me of the accomplishment I felt when I was teaching. I know the moments I sit bored I could be cleaning toilets or organizing closets but I just can't get myself there. I did do more of that sort of thing today. I guess thats good. I noticed that the days I dance I make healthier choices during that day. So yay for that. I had eggs with left over pork tenderloin and low fat cheddar and salsa for...lets say brunch :). I've had greek yogurt and almonds for snack and some cottage cheese for another snack....Oh I did have a skinny cow ice cream cone too...ugggg. Here's for being accountable emoticon Such dreary weather. Not conducive to good choices. I did 24 minutes of rumba today. It said I burned 236 calories! Yay! I would like to do some just dance with my niece when she gets here. We will see. We are going out to dinner with my family for my nephews 17th birthday tonight. I feel healthy choices for that too. Chicken marsala with no bread from the darn basket!!!!! I'm going to talk to my therapist about how to fill my days lately. I'm not sure about an actual job. Not ready for that yet...hoping to be teaching at some point. But something to get me out. It used to be I'd get things done here and then meet Joe for lunch, run errands and then run after the kids. Now with Joe's new position we can't really do lunch often. I know it seems silly but it was my I don't have Zumba classes, I don't have classes to teach and I don't have lunch with hubby. Feeling a bit lost. I don't want to binge because of this I blog. Hmmmmm...

    It sounds like you need to come up with a new hobby.

Or just get out more and do things, not costly of course.

I think that blogging is definitely better than binge eating.

    Well, think of the bright side having lunch with DH must have been adding unwanted calories. Even good intentions like ordering salads can be a shocker when eating out.

And soon you will be dancing and slowly teaching again. Sit and think what your new routine could be. Look at this as your new position. YOU CAN DO THIS!

    No Binging! I banish any binging from happening to you. You can get through this, you just need to find things you want to do to keep you moving.

Hi Sparkies!

Ahhhh the after glow of Valentine's Day! I didn't eat anymore of that yummy chocolate until we were able to have it as a family. I had 4 small pieces and that was enough. I sent Joe to work with the rest of it today! Yay! Adam and Chris had a wonderful dinner and all is well. I did 24 minutes of Zumba this morning and it felt amazing! Score! Feeling more like myself again. Taking my time with it though. I won't have another set back if I can help it....and I can! I brought lunch to Joe today. He is really loving this management stuff :). God help him. I ran some errands and picked up our niece from school. I had eggs with spinach, low fat cheddar and salsa for breakfast. A burrito bowl with chicken, lettuce and salsa for lunch. Pork tenderloin with steamed broccoli, salsa and low fat cheddar for dinner. I had some greek yogurt and almonds for snacks. Also some cottage cheese for snack. I got a lot of laundry done. I do have some folding to finish. I hope everyone had a great day!

Hi! Joe came home from basketball this morning with flowers and a card emoticon . How sweet emoticon. I'm finding a picture of us to put in a frame for his new office today. I bought our favorite chocolates to share with Josh tonight emoticon. I did my 30 minutes of dance this morning. emoticon. I'm meeting Joe for lunch. I told Joe I'm going to pick up the Zumba video game today. I'll let you know if I like it. Adam is going to dinner tonight with Chris emoticon. He wants to get him a single rose. How adorable.

Good morning Sparkies!

Feeling good today! I did 30 minutes of dancing and that felt great! I plan on doing more with Josh when he gets home. I took a shower, got ready for the day and had a healthy yummy breakfast! Eggs with low fat cheddar, spinach and salsa. Yum! I'm planning on a healthy day! I don't think I blogged to much about the Winter Ball....The boys had a great time. We went to Chris's house to take pictures and that was really nice. Chris's family are wonderful people. We then brought the boys to Adam's great friend Ellen's house. They met up with a few other friends and then we drove them over to school. Joe and I left them there as they held hands walking in to school! They are amazing. :). Joe and I went to dinner at a near by italian restaurant with some great old friends whom we've been waiting to spend time with and catch up about Adam. Dinner was great. Conversation was great. We laughed and reminensed about our 24 years as friends. We picked the boys up and brought Chris home. Adam told us that everyone was great. He did tell us that some kids stared at them while they were slow dancing. Josh said the perfect thing....we it's not the usual thing you see. That was true. It was different. No one said anything bad. Actually a kid on the bus the next day said him and his girlfriend saw them at the dance and thought Adam and his boyfriend were adorable. :) Unfortunately the other gay couple at the dance...the boy whom gave Adam such a hard time in elementary...him and his boyfriend were broken up may times on the dance floor because they were being really dirty and inappropriate on the dance floor. So that is not what Adam wanted to put out there about a gay couple at the dance. So that wasn't good but Adam and Chris had a great time. They've been together 4 months now! Wow does time fly! I had another moment during last week...I was bringing the book that I checked out of the library a year ago for Adam. Our friend Mike had recommended it to Adam last year to help him with coming out. It was great. So I sat in the library parking lot weeping a bit for the year we've had. I texted Mike and had a good laugh about somethings. It was a moment of closure. A moment of...we did things right... a moment of ....instead of reading about how to come out and have a healthy relationship...Adam is experiencing one :). So that was a moment. An emotional one but good one. I'm feeling more able to feel good about how we've handled this. I hadn't let myself for a year because I was so worried. So worried. I'm feeling like anything is possible :). So now I can dance! I can not worry much :). Time to get back to me a little. I know we have all heard about Whitney Houston's death over the weekend. How awful. Huge those you love even closer today!

    I remember when you were so worried, yet in all of that, you stayed focused. You asked for advice, help, put a thought out there, received reassurance.

I marvel that you managed to keep working out and not really fall into some type of major depression. You are so strong. You and your husband faced the situation and came up stars!

So glad that things worked out. I also don't think that any parent ever stops worrying about their child/ren.

Have a great day.
