Productive weekend

Monday, May 23, 2011

I feel like most of my weekend went well. I wanted to get some household things done and I wanted to get in some meaningful activity. It feels great to get stuff done.

I started laundry on Friday and had most of it put away by Sunday afternoon. Saturday I took my girls to health rally in COlumbus. It was for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Strong4Life Campaign. My daughter was an actress in a few of the ads. They have taken a liking to her and they are planning on supporting our family in getting healthier.

My daughter even got to speak on stage. The really fun part was all of the games and stuff we played. Even though it was mad hot I am glad we went. As we know me and my daughter are well we are a mother and her teenage daughter. I want the best for her, but I do not know if she wants it for herself. I wish she would listen more to what I say. I also need to model better choices where food and exercise is concerned. I know that the typical teenager is selfish and self-absorbed, but I want so much more for her. She is bright and beautiful. I want her to respect herself more and really try to be the best person she can be.

We also went to the movies on Saturday. The hubby, me, and the babies saw Gnomeo & Juliet. The teenagers saw Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules.

Needless to say I just wanted to stay home on Sunday, which I did for the most part. I ran a brief errand with hubby and also joined him in taking our step kids home.

Up too late..more 2 come.

Emotions

Friday, May 20, 2011




My emotions can be very deceiving. They swing so much that sometimes I do not know if I am coming or going. I went to bed last night practically in tears. I felt like I couldn't do anything right. My house was a mess. I didn't work out. I just crawled into bed not even fully unaddressed and went to sleep. Then I woke up in the a.m. realized it was the last Friday of the school year and I suddenly felt great.


Crazy huh. So at work I helped move textbooks all over campus. I could have used student helpers but I decided to make this my exercise. I was sweating like crazy, but I got it done. Checkout the chocolate fountain that we had a work today. Delish. But I learned that BBQ pork and chocolate covered marsh mellows are a yucky mix. I ended up with a tummy ache.

My oldest daughter had her 8th grade dance tonight. I am glad middle school is done. I pray high school goes better. I just want the best for her. Teenage years are so hard.. I think they are harder than they were when I was kid. But her life is definitely more stable than my upbringing. But we each have our own crosses to bear.

    I know the feeling. Right now I am overwhelmed by a few task that I am ignoring but maybe I can take a page out of your book and get to working and count it as exercise. That was a great idea by the way. I had to laugh out loud about the chocolate and the BBQ. emoticon I think that things will get better for your teenager in high school, at least it did for my son. he joined the football team and made lots of friends and connections. The more he made connections, the less phone calls I received. Good Luck!

New day... trying something new

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Hi all...
I am trying something new today. I went to my dr. for my annual lady visit. My weight is the same from previous year. So that is a good thing. My blood pressure is normal. Another thing I am grateful for. I am still dealing with really heavy cycles and PMDD . I have tried anti depressants and birth control pills. I am trying to avoid having a procedure done. So now we are trying to Nuva ring. DR. is hoping the steady state of the hormones will help with my two min problems. I am open to trying. I cant get PG because I had my tubes tied so the best birth control is one I don't have to deal with daily. emoticon

I asked for a diet pill and she prescribed me phentermine. But only for 3 months. I had success with that about 8 years ago. SO I am excited to get to use it again. I welcome any and all help to get my body to healthy weight. emoticon

My starting weight.. is 235# .
Summer starts in about 2 weeks. So lets get it done.

    Phentermine is great if you want to go a pill route. I had great success with that in the past and there was no major rebound, when I stopped taking it. Good luck!

    I hope this helps. I've had some similar issues, though not quite to that extent, and they can be brutal. emoticon

Ramblings watching BL

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

As I watch biggest loser, I am kinda sad. I want to do what they have done. I want to beat my weight and not have all this weight in me. I want to be fully successful. I don't really talk to people around me about it because so much of it is mental. I love the physocalness of it all. I really struggle with the food. I wonder why I am so empty inside. Because I know I eat to numb and/or fill a void.

I pray that this summer I can finally get this weight off.

    You really hit a cord with me as well. I watched the show thinking I wanted to be there too. I don't know that I've ever had that feeling and I want it bad. I've rededicated myself to my goals and I want this summer to make a huge difference in my finally starting to like my appearance. I hope we all have a goal driven summer! emoticon

    I think the same thing when I watch that show! They make it look so easy, but they don't always show all the hard work that goes into it, so I keep telling myself that if I put in the work, I will get the results too. Just might be a little slower! You can do it too. Don't give up!!!!!
