what time is it?

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

i gotta say this little break i have taken for myself, from all the food tracking and exercise tracking and posting comments....has done a world of good for my disposition.
i dont feel stressed because i havent stepped foot on the scale in probably close to 2 weeks.
why is it i can walk by the scale now without giving it a second glance, when before, i was on and off the scale several times a day?
i am not putting down sparkpeople, i do plan to return to my plan and tracking, all that....after the holidays, maybe 2 or 3 weeks after.
im not making a new years resolution for be here every single day, or to even lose weight, because i know how much of a set up for failure that is.
i dont think i have been eating more than i normally do, in fact, for some reason i have barely eaten anything today.
i am not hungry, and hadnt even really thought about it until just now.
i have been pretty busy trying to do some house work and just staying busy.
i hope all of you are doing well and doing what you need to do, for me, right now this is what i need to do.

    I've been there! Have you read Women, God & Love? This really put things in perspective for me. I took a few months to get right with myself. It is amazing when you can rid yourself of the scale and counting and tracking. I left it all behind. I lost 10 pounds that way. ...Not right away, of course, but when I let go of the stress and the worry. About 2 months ago, I finally started movin'. I've just started tracking for balance...not for calories or weightloss. I think you are on to something! Best wishes!!

no thank you

I have made another 5 dozen pieces of candy.
Just a few days I made, 12, and I havent eaten any.
I made the bulk of it for honey to take and give to the men he works with.
And upon hearing about it, some friends asked for some, so I made more tonight.
I do enjoy making it, but my kitchen is a disaster area, I do need to get to that.
I got so upset today, I ordered some food for honey to take to work since we were running errands and running late, and when I got there, I had more food than I had ordered, I told the lady I hadnt ordered double, but she told me I was mistaken and that I had to pay for it because I got confused.
I kindly picked up the food I did order and left the rest of it sitting and informed her that she was the one mistaken and confused and that since no one worked there with any competence, I wouldnt be ordering food there again.
I know this wasnt the mature way to handle it, but it sure felt good at the moment, since I have ordered food there before and my order is either yukky, cold, old or otherwise unpleasant to eat.
No big loss in my book.
But I really do need to get to that kitchen.
just days now.

    I don't know what's immature about that - I would have done exactly the same thing. Actually, I might possibly have left ALL of the food there and gone somewhere else, just on general principle. But I can be a right b****.

Well done on making and NOT EATING all that candy! Amazing. Sorry your kitchen's a disaster, though.

slide and push

Tonight is our towns Christmas parade, well, this evening actually.
I had thought about maybe going, but its just so cold, and since there is only one road into the town, its probably already blocked off since it was to begin at 5.

I dont regret not going because the parade wont last long, it never does and I would be standing out in the cold, alone for no reason other than to see a fire truck go by and throw some candy out to a few red nosed children.
We live in a very small town with limited resources and resourcefulness.
I do regret being bored to death.
I thought about going to Walmart, as my new glasses just arent cutting it, they look great on me and I love the style, but, I had them loosened because they were rubbing a place on my face, only now I think they are too loose and I have to keep taking them off to adjust them.
They are heavy.
I have until the 9th to decide to keep or trade. I will go tomorrow and see what my options are. I know they were limited when I chose this pair.
So other than this, I have little else to report, am hoping honey wont have to work tomorrow so we can do dome Christmas decorating and maybe a little shopping to boot.
So I have stuck to my plan today, havent been on my bike yet, but the evening is young, I usually get on around time for Nancy Grace.
Hope you all stay warm and have a nice weekend.

it is what it is

Here I am.
I have once again, yet again, started....again.
Today I went in and changed my weight and revamped it all over again.
But so far today, at almost 8 p.m. I have stuck to my plan.
No soda.
No snacking. YET.
I have been riding my bike and tomorrow, good lord and weather permitting, I will be on the walking track.
I am not putting up any numbers, lost----or want to lose---or any of that, what comes off, comes off and what doesnt, doesnt.

  It always helps me when I keep track if my diet and exercise. I can always tell where I need to focus my attention. Oh and if you snack just make sure that it is a healthy one, like fruit or yogurt. Good luck with plans.

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.
