Well we are on day #2 of probably 5 days of rain. It's cold, wet, damp, raw, and pretty much plain miserable out however I have decided that I will not let this rain get me down. I'm actually thinking if it was a couple degrees colder it would be snow - that would be awesome - I love the snow - when I don't have to be anywhere.....
So, this weekend (a three day weekend for me I took a vacation day on Monday) I'm on a mission to shake up my workout routine for fall. I need to incorporate some more cardio and obviously with the weather getting cooler, I'll be turning to videos. Thanks to SHERYLNN43 and her blog I found some this evening. I want to be able to plan some things out ahead of time so I'm not scrambling at the last minute trying to decide what to do. I'll keep up with my ST as well. The prednisone doesn't seem to be doing anything for my shoulder but then again I'm not very patient so for now there will be no upper ST.
On the nutrition end, I've been trying some new recipes each weekend. I love the crustless quiches. I make one and then have it for the week. I've been eating very well except for the ice cream at night time. I've got to find something to eat at night or just quit eating a snack but it almost always is within my calorie range so I say it's ok but I'd rather have something healthier - I have to work on that. Guess I'll look for some new snack ideas to make. I love trying new recipes out so that's always fun for me - any suggestions for snacks anyone???
All in all with exercising and eating well I am feeling great (except for my shoulder - you know there is always an issue with me - lol). My migraines are under control. I have more energy than I've had in some time. I feel in control of things that I am able to control. Taking care of myself helps me be able to take care of those that I love and others that I don't even know.
So, let it rain, I'll be busy finding a new exercise plan, trying new recipes and oh yeah there's always the cleaning, the grocery shopping, the running the kids, the soccer in the rain.............
Have a good weekend all!!

So, the stomach bug that decided to visit me last Friday has not really left me. I haven't missed work but I just can't get feeling exactly right. I was going to go to the dr's but from what I'm hearing many people have it and have it for some time. Ok, I'll continue to deal with it.
I've received phone calls from the principal, one teacher, and emails (some which I started) from teachers regarding my son. He is such a bright young man. He hates school. His attitude. His grade are decent but could be great. I don't know what to do!!!!!! AARRGGHHHH
I will be meeting with all the teachers next week to discuss what to do. I'm at a loss. I just want to cry - it's just a continuation of last year. It's like as soon as he goes to school he shuts down and becomes someone else!?!?!?
As most of you know, our dog passed away yesterday so Kenyon is extremely upset. The kids and I are doing ok. Biscuit was Kenyon's baby. It's still very upsetting to me to see him hurting.
So, with not feeling the best, stressing over my son, feeling bad for Kenyon, I am just having a crappy week. I don't like not being my normal happy self. I know I'm not eating the way I normally do because most times food is not staying with me and I am not exercising as much because I just don't have the strength. I am getting my sleep - thank goodness.
Although not my normal happy, I am still happy because I know that my life is blessed. I rarely lose sight of that fact. I always try and remind myself that I will always have these days and I will most certainly appreciate my good days even more. Thanks for listening to my vent. I think just typing this has helped me feel better.
Thanks to all my SP friends - you are the best!!!!!
