Gloomy day

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

I had plans for lunch but they were cancelled :(...bummer. So my son can now get married in two more states of our country! Maryland and Maine. Also found out Wisconsin has our first openly gay woman in Congress! We are moving forward my fellow Americans! Staying on track with food today but I have to work on it. Some days are easier than others. I don't know why but I'm putting off preparing for my Zumba Gold class. I need to think about this. I did get some cleaning done today. So far so good. Adam has his musical this weekend and I'm getting nervous for him already. Ugggg... Hope my Sparkies are having a great day!

Hope Adam has great success with the musical. I'm sure he'll be wonderful.

Have a better day.

    I'm happy for your son. Attitudes change when people begin to realize the orientation of people they already know and it's not an abstract concept anymore.

Great weekend!

Monday, November 05, 2012

Really nice weekend. Trying to stay on track with food today. Ugggg...I feel the undercurrent of feeling less then around my sister in law yesterday. I'm not doing great today but I could be doing worse. So I am acknolodging all of this and moving on to better choices. Josh has an Empire State Youth Orchestra concert tonight! First one in this orchestra! So impressed. He is awesome! I always get nervous for them before a performance. This could be one of my issues with food today too...Ahhhh the power in blogging things out! Journaling to my sparkies is always enlightening! :) So I will get things done here and breathe through my nerves. I will go to this concert and sit back and enjoy the talent and perserverance my son has! Have a great Monday!

    You're life is not a competition with your SIL. You have to realize that there are chances she may be jealous of you and making you feel less.

It sounds like both of your boys are really busy with things and you're wrapped right up with them. That's great. So glad you're having a good time with them.

Have a great week.

    Hey there,

I sure know what it feels like to feel less than someone else, especially an inlaw. A wise woman once told me never to compare myself to others because there will always be someone smarter, thinner, richer, prettier--I'm sure you get the idea. Her words really helped me to measure myself against myself only and then only with a generous point of view. It helped me like myself more.

How wonderful that you have a handle on your eating in relation to Josh's concert. Yay, you! And the power of blogging.

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!
