i am thankful.....?

Saturday, November 20, 2010

i am so tired.
walmart was like a madhouse
why do we spend a small fortune on one meal?
i understand the concept of family, togetherness and thankfulness, but why is it centered around food?
i hope you all have a blessed day and i hope you all find something, if only one other thing to do on thursday other than cook and eat.....
i hope i can too.

    I hope you find time to relax! I am thankful we will be seeing distant family this weekend, and for my shabby, happy home.

    Try to make things as simple as you can-because we sure don't need the added stress. We were out and about shopping today too, and everywhere we went, it was a zoo. This year I am especially thankful for the freedoms we enjoy due to all the men and women in the service. I will be saying a prayer for all of them and that they come home safely. And soon.

i will make u hurt!!!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

"""I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of sh*t
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
the feelings disappears
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become?
my sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away in the end
You could have it all
my empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
a million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way..."""" Hurt by Nine Inch Nails.....

i was talking to some friends recently about this song and they all of course thought it was about drug abuse...which it most likely is, but it got me to thinking about how we hurt ourselves with every bad choice and for me lately food has been like the hurt of a drug....i hate it, i loathe how it makes me feel, i want to push it away, stop, stop the hurt, but it is just so tempting, so good, so enticing, drugs, sex, gambling, cheating, lying....eating???
so many understand the drug theme of this song, but what if it were about food addiction? it is too me, i am hurt, hurt hurt hurt....

    Food addiction is very real, and perhaps more traumatic than other kinds of addiction. I was a raging alcoholic, I would start drinking around 11 am some days, four or five days a week...I was able to quit that. I smoked up to 2 packs of cigarettes a day for sixteen years...I quit that. Food is my last hurdle. It is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I will not quit on myself, although I have gone up and down the scale (and am currently in the UP part now), I am unwilling to believe that this is to be my fate, to live in this body as is for the rest of my life. I am literally, fighting for my life now. It's not about fitting into the jeans or seducing my husband. This is my LIFE. I know what must be done, I only need to stick to my convictions, my plans, and move in the right direction one step at a time. That is all any of us can do.

Best wishes, and thanks for reading my blog :)

    How we hurt ourselves with food without even thinking how obesity and unhealthy eating are major causes of disease and pain. I know that obesity is a main cause of sleep apnea and I want to be rid of the mask. But apparently not enough to stop the overeating and lack of exercise. I am working on it as I know you are also. We can get through this and come out stronger on the other side.

by gods own hand...with pics....

Monday, October 25, 2010

Yesterday was a great day.
My honey and I spent it in the beautiful Breaks Interstate Park, that borders Ky/Va.
Only a few miles from home, this is one of the most naturally beautiful places on earth.
I have the pics to prove it.

The only downfall to the day was the fact that I totally loved the hot fudge cake they had at the buffet.
But, we wont delve too deep into that.
We walked all around the park and we have decided that until the weather gets too cold, we are going to start going as much as we can and walking.
There are many trails to hike and overlooks.
I will put the pics up on my homepage and you can see what a beautiful place it is.
I have to get back on a more stricter regimen as for eating and exercising.
But today has been a good day so far.
I do dread my weight watcher weigh in on Thursday, but I am going to just take it as it comes and see where I am.
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and hope you all have a lovely week.

    Stunning picture. Reminds me a bit of the coast range near here. You get better Fall color though.

Happy New Year, yes, you read right.

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Some of you may be thinking, "has this woman totally lost it"..."it isnt New Years yet"...
But, I assure you, I am totally sane.
Maybe more so than I have been in awhile.
For you see, I have decided that this is going to be the New Year for me.
Thursday, Sept 30, will be my 43rd birthday.
And, since I so love the fall, I have decided that from now on this is when I will celebrate, not my birthday, but my new year.
It is a time of renewing my commitment to my weight loss program.
A time of renewing my goals of getting healthy.
I think I lost sight of what was important in all of this, ME.....
I was so totally focused on food and on losing weight that when I didnt lose I got all down about it, and just said screw it, and ate what I wanted.
And after hurting my leg in June, I have had a hard time getting back into physical fitness.
I all but stopped walking.
And doing my weight lifting less and less.
But this is a new year, and as we all do at the new year, we make a resolution to change.
But, this isnt going to be like that, I am not going to say, I will lose weight, I am simply going to say, I will strive to work toward getting healthy.
Taking off pounds is going to just be icing on the cake.
The low calorie cake of course!!!!
I am going to commit to exercise every single day, even when I feel like crud, I will pick up my 5 lb dumbbells and lift. If only for 2 minutes.
Just to keep it in my mind.
I love the fall of the year.
Right now the rain is falling outside and we needed it here so bad, the grass was totally drying out and the creeks were all but dry.
So many ppl hate the rain and look at it as a hinderance, but not me....I love the sound of it falling, I love watching the ripples of the puddles as the water falls into them.
I love the coolness in the air, and how the grass smells after it rains.
I would rather be out walking with my umbrella in a mist of rain, than on the hottest day of summer.
Yes, it is a time for renewal.
I think I will begin putting the bird seed out now, for it wont be long before the weather turns cold.
I love it.
