Didn't make it to line dancing class!

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Mom was here waiting for dinner when I got home from work. Hubby and her decided she would eat with us last night...so therefore....I did have chicken in the crockpot...but by the time I got everything ready and on the table I was tired and I would have been late going...so I didn't go.

Mom went home to stay last night. I like quiet mornings to myself. Oh well be thankful we get to care for her in her latter years.

Off to make it a great day!

    Someday, you'll look back on that dinner and be glad you did what you did. Enjoy your family when they are around.

    Sometimes life interferes with our plans. One workout in the scheme of things is not a big deal. My Mom is 84 and she gets around like she's 64. Sometimes I forget that she is not going to be around forever. I need to make good use of the time we spend together.

    You did a great thing for someone you love and you cannot feel bad about that part. Missing a workout, especially a fun one, is a bummer. emoticon

    Is there another dance class you can attend to make up for the one lost? I'm like you being thankful my mom is still here. She does live on her own as well. My mom is 67 years old. How old is your mom?

Reflection

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Feeling some stress I guess-- my weight is heading the wrong direction recently. Not sure what I am stressing about but having trouble sleeping at night too! Recently I've been starving. Food really tastes so good.

Mom stayed with us again last night. They worked on her furnace last night but were still doing some testing for fumes and wanted her to stay away for another night.

Can't get myself back into going to CURVES after work. Mom hasn't been able to go and can't make myself get back into the grove. Justify it by saying I do work out each morning for an hour. Weather hasn't been nice enough to walk at lunchtimes. I miss that.

Tonight back to line dance class. It really works my brain and my body.

Work doing OK. Boss planning out our schedules for yearly review. This weekend makes 2 years since I interviewed with him. Been a rough bumpy two years. Wonder what this year will hold?

Off to make it a great day!

    Sorry to hear you are going through some stress. But great job getting an hour of exercise in each morning.

    I'm suffering with some of the same stuff you're going through. My weight is up and down. I'm not sleeping very well. I'm HUNGRY all the time. I do exercise regularly but not with enough intensity or duration. I think mine is due to some unresolved relationship issue and uncertainty for the future. Knowing this doesn't seem to be helping me overcome it though.

    maybe that last question is at least part of the key to your stress??? and happy - i hope - 2nd anniversary of your interview. having mom or anyone stay in a home will change routines very quickly so once her house is cleared and she returns you will have one less conflict.. keep the faith - you'll get back to your routine...

Been Off Track The Weekend

Monday, January 16, 2012

Headache seems gone. Mom came over for the night last night. Started the morning her fire alarm went off...got that taken care of but last night she called saying throat was sore and thinks she's smelling things in the house. Who knows...she jumped at the chance to stay here and Hubby and her will figure out if anything is going on in her house. Also reitrement community to come out and check things on it anyway today so they will hopefully get her calmed down. Just got the sheets all cleaned...so guess we were ready for her.

Need to get back on track. I was doing OK but got off track towards the end of the week.

Worked on finalizing my goals for 2012 and put them on paper...

Off to make it a great day!

    Praying all is alright with your mom's home. URGH That would be scary!

Don't worry about going off track. Seems like it was like that for a lot of people, me included! We know what we need to do.

Best of luck this week!

A Little Under the Weather

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Woke with headache and can't seem to get rid of it. Fading as the day goes by...Not sure what triggered it....

Eating was poor at times last week and this weekend. Need to get back on track and focus on the goals I've set.
