Hi Thursday!

Thursday, February 23, 2012

So not such a great day. I'm wrapping my brain around life with Joe's new job. Not doing such a great job of it. Joe has basically spent no time with the kids this week. He has to work this whole weekend. He only has to work a couple hours tomorrow. We will see. I need a life. I realize this. I need something to give me a purpose for my day. I'm going to talk to my therapist about this on Tuesday. I'm just not feeling right. I am working that is helping but not enough. I'm feeling a bit lost in life. I feel like Joe has this new job, the kids have lives ...I'm just walking around this house. I gave up sweets for Lent. I'm very happy with that decision. I think that will be good for me. I will work on me. I just haven't felt any answers. Thanks for being here.

    Sounds like empty nest.

What about volunteering somewhere for a few hours during the day when you're alone? I don't know what or where your interests lay, but there has to be something.

Keep up with the Zumba and hopefully, you can start teaching again.

Hi Tuesday!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

So happy that it's winter break. I do feel so bad though. We found out that Adams very good friends dad suffered a massive heart attack Sunday night. He passed away yesterday morning. He worked with Joe and we were just with him at his house the night of the Winter Ball when Adam and CHris went to take pictures with his daughters. Adam was devasted. I think it reminded him that his parents are mortal. That we could not be here. He spoke to his friends and told them he is there for him when ever they need him. He was at Chris's when we found out and wanted to come home. We did and hung out on the couch together all day. I felt awful for him. I'm waiting to hear when the services will be. Josh stayed over at Connor's last night so he doesn't know about this yet. Food was ok yesterday. Not great but could have been worse I guess. I did Zumba for 23 minutes. Love my Zumba! Today I'll be dancing. Hope you have a great day!

    What a sad, sad situation.

I myself lost a first cousin once removed, last week. She was always at the yearly family reunion and did free catering for my wedding. She was a lovely person.

My heart breaks for the family and the shock that everyone must go through.

My deepest sympathies.

Take care of yourself and hug your husband tighter!

    I am so sorry for the loss to you and your friends family. As bad as it seems, at least he didn't suffer with an illness.

Hello Sunday!

So Saturday turned out so nice. Quiet day. Adam had finals to go and watch with his swim team. Josh and I played a lot of Yatzee and watched a movie. Nice. I started helping him clean his room. That will take some work. I picked Adam up and we headed out to have a yummy mexican dinner with my parents. Yum. Jerk pulled pork, salsa and lettuce. Yum! I did have a prickly pear absolute favorite at this mexican restaurant. :) Mom loved it too :). We went to a drum corp performance at a broadway performance in our area actually. It was awesome! Extremely inspiring for Josh! Hopefully the brace will be taken off this Tuesday so he can get back to drumming :). Food was ok yesterday. I didn't make awful choices but not in my usual habits. Oh well, it is the weekend. I'm so psyched the kids have the week off. :) We are having friends over for dinner tonight. That will be nice. Have a great day!

    I like the fact that you had one on one with Josh. Just playing games is fun.

Will Adam need physiotherapy after getting the brace off? It doesn't sound like he was totally imobilized like DD1 was with her broken wrist.

Sounds like you just had a nice day.

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!

    Saturdays are so very glorious! And leftovers of amazing healthy food are both decadent AND wholesome... how can you not love that?

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.
