Bad Monday

Monday, January 07, 2013

Well, actually, bad Sunday. Went to breakfast with some relatives we only see a couple times a year. I was attacked verbally. I post so much on facebook I need a job...am I taking classes now? I just don't understand why they care? I don't accuse them of anything? I just don't get it. So last night my mom brought up something sensitive to me that had to do with the breakfast. So I got really defensive. I yelled at her. Ugggg.... I apologized this morning but finished it off with a binge. I think I'm going to get my period soon so that probably has something to do with it. Ugggg....I will drink more water today. I'll try to flush out all the salt and sugar I threw in it this morning. I know I'm nervous about Adam's musical this weekend. I always am. Breathe.... Sometimes people can make me feel like a loser. It's like they work at it. Breathe...

    Embrace the healthy lifestyle full force, focus on the positive, don't listen to anyone questioning or doubting you (They're prob no experts...especially family!), and get your motivation from your immediate family. Most importantly, don't let anyone steal your dream or distract you from your goals!

    people can only make you feel bad if you allow them to do so. it's ok to be firm with people if you need to do so if you need to make your own feelings known. I hope your day gets better. hugs.

    Maybe you got angry because when an adult tells another adult what they should (or should not) be doing or makes a critical judgement about them, it's an expression of control, not an expression of love. You're feeling angry and upset for good reason. But you can't change them. You can only change you: your thought process, your feelings, and your responses.

If they can make you feel bad about yourself, you've given away your personal power. Reclaim it! You have the right to be who you are. And you don't need anyone's approval to be uniquely you! Sure, support is nice. But we don't always get it from the people who are related to us. When you start feeling defensive, that's a cue that you're giving away your personal power.

When I start to feel this way (and there are a few control freaks in my family, too), I take a deep breath, and relax. I don't bother defending my decisions because defending myself just pulls me further into their cycle of control. And I really don't NEED their approval. Sure it would be nice. But their approval is not mine to give. So if they don't wanna give it, well, that's their problem, not mine! But it's a really hard habit to break, especially since so many of us were raised to be people-pleasers. One phrase that I've found helpful is, "Thanks for the feedback, but I was telling you about this to share my joy with you, not to ask for your permission/approval." That goes over slightly better than, "yeah, well, it's really not your place to tell me what to do!" emoticon

    Sorry you had a crappy Sunday. Be extra nice to yourself today, read a book, take a long bath or walk..find something that feels good AND keeps you on your program. Hope the rest of your week is better.

So first official day with resolutions...

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I do my best on New Year's day but I always find I'm on track with resolutions on January 2nd. My goals are ...more water, healthy eating and I will let things go...not my house :) but issues. I will not hold on to events, words assumptions.... I will take what happens as face value and move on. My goal is to be more at peace in this world. After 4 years of dancing I am happy with my exercise program and keep up with my fun me time with that! :) So really food and hydration are my wellness work this year. Not for the clothes or even to impress anyone but to feel good. I am at a place with my body and age that I want to feel good and comfortable. Life is good. Let's enjoy!

Finally snow!

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Boy are we getting it! Wow! So pretty! I am driving 2 and a half hours tomorrow at 5am for a wrestling match for Josh in Vermont! Ugggg... We hunkered down today and just watched it fall. :) Quite lazy actually. I ate way too much Christmas candy and cookies. Wednesday will start my new healthy habits. I will do better until then. Traveling all day tomorrow will not help though. We have a sweet 16 party to go to tonight. That should be fun. Hope my sparkies are all doing well!

    Yay for you. Just be careful driving, of course. :) We finally got snow too. My husband read where it had been 86 years since since the last time it snowed in our area on Christmas Day... well, it was nighttime, but it did it this year! It's almost all gone already, but it was so pretty while it lasted. We're hoping for more.

Ready to start this new year right!

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Let's do this! I'm going in with a healthy attitude! Ready to enjoy some healthy time in my life! I went to see This is 40 last week. It was great! What I loved the most is I got it!!!!!! I am 42 and when I was 40 I hated the idea of turning the big 4 0 ....It took 2 years to come to terms with it and now I can look back and feel good about where I am. Now I N my 40's and want the healthiest 40's I can have. I will follow my very healthy husbands lead and enjoy this space I am in now. Christmas was great! Family and friends...25 for dinner. It worked out very well. Very nice. Hope my Sparkies are having wonderful holidays and ready to start an amazing 2013 with you all!
