Hey Friday.

Friday, November 02, 2012

Hubby has to work today :(...He usually has today off but ...bummer. So guess what! I had a follow up appt. at the dr. yesterday and I lost 4 pounds since last week! I don't get it but I'll take it! Adam had a great birthday! Joe brought him to get his iphone 5! He is over the moon! So today I will clean the house. I will take down my awesome Halloween decorations and keep up fall ones. Our new mattress is great! Yay! Busy night ahead. Adam has rehearsal, Josh is going to a football game and Joe and I have dinner plans. Oh..time of the month showed up yesterday. Totally explains one of the reasons I ate a crap load of candy on Wenesday. Yesterday was awesome eating. Healthy egg white omlette this morning. Hope you are having a great day!

    Congrats on the 4 pound loss. That's great. I bought a new mattress too - and it is totally amazing. I can't believe how much technology there is in mattresses.

Halloween Binge...

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Ugggg...confession time. This is a bad time of year for me. Ugggg...again. So I was lazy about getting the candy I like out of the house after Adam's birthday party. I did throw out the cake. Usually Joe is all over getting it to work the next morning. We have been so busy we just haven't been on that. The back of my mind knew it was still here. Waiting. I probably ate 30 or more fun size chocalate candies this morning. I had a healthy egg white omlette just to fill myself up but I did it anyway.'s all gone. Only stuff I don't like left. I'm going to Zumba tonight and will work on some Zumba Gold this afternoon. Thats some calories burned. I already dusted down walls and furniture and thorough vacuuming of my bedroom since then. We are having new mattresses delivered today. Excited about that but I will have to miss my haircut appt. because of delivery time. Bummed about that. So I will now let this go. I have acknowledged it and have thought through why it happened. One day at a time here.

    Way to go confessing it! Now you are forced to look at it in the light of day.

I like the suggestion of in the future to only get candy you don't like, or maybe to hand out "healthy" snacks, like pretzels, nuts, or raisins. Or even non-candy items like Halloween stickers or erasers (dollar store is awesome for those things). And parents will love you (their kids get way to much sugar on Halloween anyway!)

But for now, the only thing to do is move forward, and that is what you are doing! emoticon

    OK, time to get ONLY the stuff you don't like next year so no more binges like that! It happens and it's over now.

    Very wise. Let it go. You've learned the lesson. The important thing is to remain committed to healthy living; to progress, not perfection. I've been a binge eater for years. I've been at goal weight now 4 years. My binges are healthier, smaller, and far less frequent. But I still struggle with not getting too upset with myself and getting discouraged. So my advice to myself and you: learn the lesson, let it go, remain committed, focus on progress, forgive yourself totally, stay positive!! You can do it!!!

Hi Sparkies!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Results from the doctors were good. All is well. I got licensed in Zumba Gold on Sunday! Yay! Now I will work on choreography and hopefully set up classes for the New Year! Food was soooo bad this weekend. Uggg... I used a full day of dance training as an excuse to eat awful. :( I was also sooo nervous about going that I ate my feelings...which I realized later. So back to clean eating. I went to a Zumba Gold class today to check it out. Got some good info from the instructor. Hope my Sparkies are doing well!

    Congratulations on your license! And don't worry about not eating clean. Sometimes, all of us need a day of something unhealthy, so we can remember why we love clean food so much! Best wishes!

Gloomy day

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Ok sick of no sun already. I know that these days will be many until like....May...ugggg. Maybe I should add more vitamin D. Hmmm. I have a doctors appt. today. I've been having symptoms and I need to have them addressed. I'll keep you updated. Adam wanted an appt. with his therapist today. He said he will talk with me about it after he talks to her. Uggg...parenting is tough. Stress....I'll be ready for Zumba tonight! You betcha.

    Hope things lighten up for you and your family. As for's good that he has someone to talk to.

You're a good Mom. Remember that.

    I too agree about gloomy days and parenting being tough.

I miss Zumba, but between work and after school activities for the kids I just can get a class in.

    I hope all goes well with the doctor. Look at it this way, even if Adam can't talk to you right away, at least he is willing to talk to a therapist and not just a friend who could lead him in any kind of wacky direction. Hugs hon.

Happy Birthday Hubby!!!!

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Love that man :)! He has a 12 hour day today. Bummer :( We did get to have lunch together. Yum :). Chicken, salsa and corn salsa burrito bowl...:) Adam's first Rent rehearsal today..Yay! I got some cleaning and grocery shopping done today. Adam's family bday party is Friday. He will be 17! wow!!! He was telling me that him and Ian are the first male couple in his high school...ever!!! They hold hands between classes and there hasn't been anything but positive feedback from anyone! Score! Also, a sophomore on the swim team came up to him last week and told him that Adam being out last year inspired him to come out at school this year. He thanked Adam for being so brave :). Such a proud mom. Gushing over here! :) Life is good :).

    Happy belated birthday to your dear hubby!

It brings a smile to my face to see things working out well for your son and his special friend.

He's so very fortunate to have an accepting and loving mother. emoticon emoticon
