Hey Saturday

Saturday, March 10, 2012

So life is going. Today not so great with the food. I binged. Uggg...I really don't know why. I will ponder this. Three days of Zumba this week! Yay! I'm glad I took two days off in a row before I Zumba again tomorrow. My foot doesn't feel great. We will see. God I love it though. So I have been making strides with phone calls and getting chores done. Score. We are getting our basement painted on Wenesday! I will feel great about that. I will be great about choices the rest of today. The boys are good. Joe is good. Weather is amazing. Love it! I'll work on more chores when I'm done with this blog. I'm enjoying reading my friends blogs lately. They have been helping. Thanks for sharing! Have a great day friends.

    Binging happens, the thing is to acknowledge it and move on.

Great to hear that you're having a good time, be easy on your foot!

Hi Wenesday

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

I went to another Zumba class yesterday. It was great! So glad to be back. There is a Zumba Gold certification in June that I'm going to register for! I also talked to a friend from the gym who works for a large assisted living community in the area and she says she has contacts that can help me start classes once I'm ready :)! Feeling good! Feeling positive! I know I need to take my time. I will. The inserts are helping soooo much. I used the boot last night and I think that helped too. Sooooo now we have to work on nutrition. I cut out desserts and sweets. Thats good. We will see. Guess what! Joe won the work trip again! We head to Buenos Aires in October!!!!! Yay! So thats a great reason to lose some pounds! I'm finding ways to schedule things to do during the day. That is helping. Have a great day!

    Nice to go on a trip! Congrats!

Isn't it sweet to be looking forward to something? Zumba is a passion for you and I really think you missed it. So, it's really good that you're going again.

They have a lady here that is taking Zumba and going for certification for teaching it. It will be nice when it's available here.

Have a great night.

Hi Monday

Monday, March 05, 2012

Adam texted me this morning that he saved a page on the computer for me to read. It is about ADHD. He thinks he has this. I told him I'd call his therapist and we could go talk to her about this. He agreed and I have a call into her. We will see. I brought mom to jury duty this morning. Bummer for her. I've tried something new recently....instead of being upset that the friends I've had forever haven't been there for me this year I am opening myself up to new friendships. I like it. I went to my Zumba class with the mom of Josh's friend whom I've never really given myself a chance to be friends with. She was so sweet and friendly and positive. Love it! Also my friend Taryn that I really haven't been connecting with has really been pushing some get togethers. I've accepted the invites and have loved getting together with her as well. So gold star for working on me emoticon My foot definitely needs rest today. I am relaxing with it. I've made a lot of phone call chores and did some laundry. I'm bringing the dog into the vet for a check up today. I will get some groceries while I'm out and hope Adam therapist calls soon. Food has been good. Thanks for being here!

    My son went through the "I think I have ADHD phase too." Hopefully, it's just a phase for Adam. I know that my son doesn't have it. Even my pharmacist said that there was no way he had it.

Good that you're taking it easy on your foot today. Hopefully, in time, it will all be back to normal.

As for the old friends that aren't there for you. Too bad. I love the fact that you're taking on new people and getting to know them. I myself have dropped two friends, just because of their attitudes and comments and just not being on the same page with them. I can understand what you're going through. I've been there and I think in a way, there is a time of mourning a friendship before stepping out and making new ones.

Do have fun and enjoy your new life.

Hi Sunday

Sunday, March 04, 2012

Great day all around. I went to my first Zumba class in quite a while. I actually was nervous. I drove with a friend from Josh's class. She is a sweet positive that I hope to spend more time with. The class was great. I had a great workout and made sure to be very safe with my foot. I worked out my waist and core and arms a lot! emoticon. It felt good but different. It didn't give me the whole rush I remember but I guess that is good. I'm restraining myself so I won't hurt myself. I think I'm coming at it this time with a solid foundation so I can continue dancing indefinitely. emoticon I will only go to full classes on Tuesday and Sunday for quite a while. I'm thinking of running again. I think it will be good to mix it up. Soooooo thanks again to my Sparkies have been standing by me while I recover. This has been one adjustment after another. What a ride. But at least I'm back to the emoticon emoticon two days a week! Feel the love emoticon

    I totally understand where you're coming from. Dealing with an injury is no picnic. Then to go back to doing what you were doing before...I would be feeling very, very cautious too.

Of course I have been here for you in the long run and I will be here for you still.

Have a great day.

    Sounds like a good plan. Better to be safe now than to get hurt and have to be without your Zumba again!

HI Friday

Friday, March 02, 2012

Hello. So I had a good meeting with my therapist on Tuesday. We have four things to work on. I small amount of depression is there. I don't want to go to medication yet. She thinks I'm still working through the grieving about Adam. I did start crying when we talked about it. I told her how angry I am. We discuss the changes there has been in me this past year. Many are good. I'm stronger, I have better problem solving skills. Another change can be that I won't put up with what I used too. I think that is true. We will work on how I deal with this. Also we discussed how Joe works so much now and how I just don't seem content with what I used too. I used to love taking care of our home and family and that would be enough. Now it doesn't seem to be enough and I'm not ready for a full time job yet. She said we will work on all of this. She wants me to write down every time I'm angry and why. I've also noticed the huge change in my when I'm pmsing. It seems every other month I go through a lot mentally at this time. I'm going to my first full Zumba class this Sunday. I'm soooo looking forward to that. I think if I do full classes on Sunday and Tuesday for a while that will be great for me. Food choices have been really good. I cut out all sweets and desserts for Lent and have really stuck with it. So I'm being proactive and since my period is almost over I'm feeling better mentally. Have a great day!

    How was Zumba Sunday? I have bipolar disorder and exercise really helps with my mood. I used to have more depression than mania. Exercise along with sunshine really helped. You are in my prayers.

    You should be proud that you accomplished as much as you have so far!!! I am!! And it sounds like you have a good grasp as what to work on next. That is a lot more than some people ever do.

Why not consider a part-time job to start with? Since both kids are in school. Maybe you can find hours while they are in school? When DH and the boys are home you will still be able to be with them.

hugs, Anne

    So many things that go through a person's mind and there is no way to control other people and their choices. Just guide. So hard to do, especially for a Mom.

We've been here for you through this all and we will still be here through thick and thin.

Take care of yourself.
