Hello Sparkies!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Tuesday was a much better day. Thanks Sparkies for checking in with me :). I met Ian Monday night and he seems like a keeper :). We will see. Adam had a blast at our Zumba class! YAY! Great exercise for him since he doesn't have time for the swim team this year. Food has been amazing and I"m feeling great about where I am with my weight and clothes. Score! I feeling like I"m at maintenance even though I'm not at a jean size I thought I'd be at. I feel in my 40's this is a very healthy place to be. I know I've lost since I saw the doctor and I am looking forward to my follow up with him in November. I'll keep you updated. I'll have to check out the maintenance team I haven't looked at in a long time. I'll be shopping for some smaller size jeans today and do some organizing around here :). Hope my sparkies are having a good day!

Not feeling the Monday

Monday, October 15, 2012

Ugggg...just not feeilng it. Sorry...Gloomy weather. Not a great Sunday. Breakfast at the inlaws. Not a good time. Just saying. Then during this breakfast Joe makes plans for him and I to spend the entire day Friday...this Friday...with them!!!! No discussions. Just sure we will. I just don't see Joe enough to have an arguement with him about it. Whatever. Then we he invited my sister inlaw and her husband over to hang after we had lunch with them! No discussion just invited. I just am at a lost on how to handle this stuff. He is working sooo much now. One day at a time here. Good thing....I haven't eaten to comfort myself. Thats good. I totally could have but didn't. I lose all my self confidence sometimes when I'm around my sister inlaw and her husband. I felt that again yesterday but I'm pondering why I do this to myself today instead of eating and blaming her. Thats a good thing. I'm definitely getting to Zumba tonight! I really need it! I didn't go at all last week and my mood suffered alot! I did dance for about 20 minutes Saturday. That is definitely not enough. Adam is dating. I'll meet him tonight. Ian goes to the same Zumba class I go to on Monday nights! I had no idea! Yay! So Adam and Ian are going to be there with me. So cute! Adam has a meeting with his therapist this afternoon. I'll get some work done around here and will feel better. I'm glad I blogged these feelings out. Thanks!

    You should let your DH know how it hurts not to be asked. Your feelings count too.

I would be nervous dancing in front of my child and his friend. Best of luck! emoticon

    Sometimes getting things out there makes a big difference. Deep breaths, I think I see an Extra Zumba class or 2 in your future after the in law time. I am glad Adam is dating, Ian better be good to him.

    It's hard to be put on the spot and expect to spend more time with people that make you uncomfortable. It probably brought you down. Maybe you should talk to the counselor about that.

It's nice to know you can do Zumba after your foot injury. Just don't strain yourself.

Professional production company here we come....:)

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Yay!!! Adam made the cast of Rent!!!! It's a local theater company but the first professional production company he has worked with! It is a big deal at this age in this area! Yay! Mom gushing over here emoticon ...He is in the esnsemble. That is great for him. Many friends from his school are in it as well. That should be fun and he will learn soooo much from the director at this level. He is starting with an amazing vocal coach who has many contacts in NYC! Her two sons are on broadway right now!!!! Yup! emoticon Gush Gush Gush! Sorry...so psyched. Food has been great and the medicine seems to be working on my tummy. I danced this morning. OH!

Hello Friday

Friday, September 28, 2012

Hi Sparkies! Hope all is well. Glad it's Friday but bummed that Joe is working. His boss needed Joe to switch his day off. He did have yesterday off so that was nice. We enjoyed a very leisurely day. Nice. I went to the gastroentorologist Tuesday. I found out I have IBS. Sounds about right. They are trying me on a medicine to see if everything will regulate with it. We will see. It seems to help my stomache but I tried Align this summer and 6 weeks later it stopped working. I'll go back in two months and we will see if it is still working. It's good to have at least a name for the issues. Adding fiber to my diet kills me. Really upsets my system. I used to take Benefiber and it worked well but then they took it off the market and everything else I tried really hurt my body. So we will try the medicine. I went to visit a friend today who had moved away a couple years ago. She seems well but her mom and I have not been well in a while. The visit was at her moms and I wasn't looking forward to going there. She proved to me at that vist that I don't want to be around her at all anymore. Very passive aggressive and rude. Soooo future visits will be at my house or out for a meal. I've learned that it is not worth my time to invest energy with a person who doesn't deserve or really want it. So that is my day. The weather is very dreary and will be for at least through the weekend. Oh well. We have been blessed with gorgeous weather for weeks. Time to even it up. I did alot of shopping recently with some birthday money. A new fall jacket for Josh's football games, 2 pairs of jeans, new black loafers and 3 tops. I've been cleaning out my closet and need some new basics. I'm very happy with my purchases. I was really disappointed with my weight at the dr.s appt. He did bloodwork to check for a thyroid problem. I just don't understand the gain with how great I've been with food and exercise. Oh! I registered for training in Zumba Gold!!!! I'll be headed to Massachusetts in October! Yay! I'll keep you updated. Good busy weekend coming up. Have a great weekend!

    You're so right about not being around someone unpleasant. I wouldn't want to spend my time with someone like that either.

I didn't know Benefibre was taken of the market. I used to take that too. What about PGX? It's a fibre as well and I didn't mind it. You can find it in the pharmacies and health stores.

Nice to be able to go shopping and getting something new. When things settle down here, I would very much enjoy the opportunity myself.

Have a good week, Snookums. I'm sure you need it.

    I hope things work out better with the doctor and the meds. It sounds like if your friend really want to see you, her mother will take a temporary sideline. Whoohoo with going Zumba Gold! You can do it!
