Some General Gripes.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

~People that do not accept compliments without degrading his/herself.
~Our culture's fascination with being toothpick skinny. Have you ever looked at pin-ups from the 50s? They had curves... They were real.
~Clothes that are made to fit those who are toothpick skinny. I was an athlete for half of my life, and I'm now a Soldier. I have muscles. I need room in my clothes.
~People that are down on others for being comfortable in their own skin. I am very happy with myself, so why can't you follow suit???
~People that are rude to receptionists/secretaries/hostesses (in restaurants)/servers/cashiers... any direct customer service personnel.
~Customer service personnel that are rude to customers for no apparent reason.
~Tailgaters.
~Traditionalists.
~People that think that 20 year old women aren't capable of doing... anything for ourselves. While there are exceptions, we are smarter than most of the older, and male populations think.
~People that forget that they were young once, too, and had to learn lessons the hard way.
~The rising expense of a college education.
~The dwindling sufficiency of a Bachelors Degree.
~Politics.
~Celebrity "rolemodels" that are setting poor examples for our nation's youth.
~Men that treat women like objects, and the women that allow themselves to be treated as such.

I could continue this rant for a long time, but it's lunchtime here at the office, so I will end here.

    I couldn't agree with you more, Darlene. It's nauseating.

  I agree with you...I worked in the public many years and
people have no concept of life in the retail world.

I would add this one: I nearly got cold-cocked one time
for interfering with a man beating the heck out of his
horse....he had his quirt drawn back and much to his surprise
I grabbed it and hit him across the chest....he said a few
unsavory words and went to draw back on me and there were
several men who dared him.....to try it. I would have slammed
him in the face if I could have, I said it hurts don't it????
I told him a man who will beat a defeneseless animal probably beats his wife and kids too.....

If he didn't want the horse, then he should have sold it or
gave it away. I despise animal abusers/child abusers/spouse
abusers(male or female)

My rant added to yours....lol

    Go on Girl let it go, say what you really mean. and I am with you. I am a big bone girl I heard DR OZ say there was no such thing as a big bone. and that is bull S**t I have been big boned all my life and I used to be skinny well not skinny but back in my 20s i was between 120 and 125. very toned big breasted and still could not wear size 6 or 8s and tall too.
I have worked in retail most of my life and yes. people think they are so much better then the clerk at the register and they need to get a grip.
I think the celebrities that when they have on bathing suits and you can see and count their ribs and see their breast bone,collar bone sticking out needs to eat a twinkie or 2. that is so ugly. just gain a few more problems nothing more ugly then looking at someone whose bones are protruding.

That which does not kill me will only make me stronger....

Monday, August 23, 2010

I would like to share some of my struggles, vices, and things people might deem personality flaws. I think this would help me in overcoming them or accepting them...

~I hate working out alone. I just don't have the motivation if there's not someone else depending on me.
~I drink waaaay too much coffee.
~I eat waaaaay too few fruits and veggies.
~I have a hard time staying happy in dating relationships.
~I am really easily distracted.
~I would like to be a little more girly and have more female friends, but I just don't know how... In fact, the idea of talking to girls kind of intimidates me.
~I absolutely hate going to the dentist. If it weren't for the Army, I would only go when I hurt.
~When I am busy or stressed, eating is the least of my concerns.
~I HATE dressing up. If I could live my life in jeans, a t-shirt, and boots (Army or cowboy) I would be the happiest girl in the world.
~The idea of marriage is absurd to me.
~I don't want to have children. I like my life just the way it is, and I don't see that mindset changing anytime soon.
~I don't know where my life is going to go.
~I am really indecisive.
~I am very honest.

  Honesty is the best policy doll....

I will address just a couple things you said, so as not to be
boring.
No one techinically knows 100 % where their life is going. Too
many things interfere.
Just because you don't want to have children does not mean there
is something wrong with you. A lot of people are going that
route nowadays.
I hate going to the dentist. It is always a white knuckle experience.

We are much alike in many ways, except for the kids. I have 1 of
each, but this is a moot point since they are both grown. LOL

Just want you to know I didn't read anything that was shocking
to the point of my fainting..............
See, you aren't so bad.

"Way More Better"

Sunday, August 22, 2010

That's the way one of the sergeants at my new Reserve unit judges improvement. "That looks way more better... That works way more better..." You get the idea.

Well, I feel way more better. The drama is starting to iron itself out, and I can finally relax a little bit... And I'm eating way more better.

I never realized the correlation between my feelings and my eating habits before. I'm not sure that i can classify myself as an emotional eater... Maybe the more correct term is "Emotional Non-Eater". When I get stressed or upset, it's all I can do to bring myself to eat. It's not that I consciously deprive myself so that I feel like I'm in control of something (I've known people that do that), it's just that I don't feel hungry. This, of course, makes me feel worse.

Fortunately, I don't feel like this very often, and the drama seems to have passed. And I'm eating normally again.

Thanks for the prayer and support the past few days!

Just when I thought it would get easier.

Saturday, August 21, 2010

My life decided to get all difficult, and throw a curveball at my healthy eating. I guess it isn't all that horrible becase I found out that my eating habits weren't all that bad... I just have to watch my portions.

I am going through a stressful time right now, and could use prayer and support. I am just having a hard time understanding why it all has to happen at once. I am doing my best to remind myself that God will never give me more than I can handle.

    Thank you so much, Darlene! I usually maintain a very optimistic attitude, and rarely experience drama... So, when it does come along (in truck-loads, I might add), I have a really hard time dealing with it. It's starting to work out--slowly, but surely.

Thanks again for the prayers!

  Oh gee whiz..........what is going on??? Can I help????
I am a pretty good listener ! ! ! !

I know things all seems to hit the handbasket all at once,
but I think it is merely the enemy trying to derail us and
the decision to walk on the Christians pathway.

I am so sorry things are snowballing on you right now, and I
am always around if you need to email....I will put you on my
prayer list, kiddo...............
Stay strong and don't let the problems knock you off the
healthy path you have chosen. You are worth the effort to save
yourself...........

Climbing back on the wagon

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

Well, for anyone that reads my blog with any regularity, you've probably noticed that I missed days 7, 8, 9, AND 10... I basically fell off the face of the Earth this weekend, didn't track food, exercise, or drink enough water. And let me tell you, I can tell a difference in the way I feel...

But enough about bad news. The good news is, I can start again, and learn from this experience. Today is a new day and a fresh start. I am eating like I should, and going to a Zumba class tonight!

I will win. I will learn how to eat right, even though I am busy, and the junkfood is what's convenient. I will remember to drink water. I will be healthy.

Happy Tuesday, all!
