Solo

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

My son is flying solo for his first time. I am very anxious - can't wait for him to let me know he's arrived safely. My work didn't permit me to travel with him - so you know I'm casting expletives on this job. But I guess mothers have to release at some time. Feeling a little down. The house is so lonely and it's only been an hour since I dropped him at the airport. I've got all the fears - did I do the right thing by sending him to camp, alone, will he be alright.
I have to remember the plan:

    I love this. My kids have not done any traveling alone as of yet. I've thought about it (countless) times, but no go. If there not with me or with "family" they don't go. I guess I have to let them fly, but my kids...a few of them are afraid to flap their wings. I blame me for that; because I've cast off a few of my fears and now I'm working like crazy to undo my fears on my oldest. In time we will see what happens with her.
My over protective ways have clipped her wings. I sure he's unpacked and having a great time. We often wonder...what are they doing around this (hour)?
I know that's me. I worry about every hour while wake. And when he returns home, that's when you're going to get your best night of sleep.
emoticon You can handle the empty house.
But you'll be pitiful. I know I'm a mess when my kids are gone.
I understand how you're feeling. A mothers love is a strong love, a love like no other.

    You never stop worrying about your children...ever ! My son is grown and on his own and has been for 3 years. I still worry about him. I'm sure your son will be ok. The kids are usually ok with everything & it's us Mom's who freak out ! It's a Mom 's job to do that :) t's so hard to let them grow up & spread their wings & have experiences in life. It's so weird when they have experiences on their own , without us Mom's there ! Doesn't seem fair, does it ? I'm sorry your job wouldn't allow you the time off, that makes it even harder ! Hang in there ! Your son will be home before you know it, telling you all about the fun he had !

    I remember too well the feeling, when if sent each of my two boys off, as they reaappropriate age, to spend "special time" with my parents. And now I see it coming all over again, knowing that Marshall's spring trip to visit his mother will be on his own. Hugs to you, Ju, and a yer for a timely phone call letting you know that all is well!

Interim Summer Assesment

Monday, July 28, 2014

Sunday when I got up the cable was off and the cellular network was off. So I was unable to use the internet. Both were off the entire day. When I returned home around 7:30 p.m. the networks were up. Thankful the electricity was on so your house could stay cool.
This morning the cable and cellular network were working fine but the electricity went off bout 7:30 a.m. I took my bathe (in cold water - thankfully the weather is warm) and headed into work.

Soon time for back to school. The summer is in its last throes. My fall running plans are beginning to take shape - on paper that is. I don't have a training schedule formulated. But I've been riding bike and swimming very regularly this summer - so that is great. I wanted to exercise 2x a day - 2 days out of the week. It did not work quite work out like that it's more like 1day a week I exercise 4x. So that averages out to 2x a day 2 days out of the week.

My eating continues to be the challenge. I am compensating with the increased exercise but I am not really happy about that. Portion control is my challenge. I track but my portion sizes are too large for my daily calorie intake. By the time I log breakfast, snack and lunch - I'm usually up to 1000 - 1100 calories. So I know that dinner is going to likely carry me over to 1700 if I am good and 1900 if I'm regular. So I need to reduce the portion sizes.

    so sorry about the cable and power issues, oh and cell too.

Don't remind me of school. Next week I'll be working daily again. Not looking forward to that. But I have a job and am grateful for that and so many people don't have breaks in the summer at all except a vacation so I am so grateful for that.

You've done so well already. You will overcome!

    So what is your target calorie range? I try and stay under 1550 for the day and usually do.

    Oh my dear, you've nailed my nemesis . . . it's not necessarily the food that I eat but the portion size! Have just had to realize that at least for now I need to measure and weigh my portions and that's that.

Busy Weekend

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Yesterday was my birthday. It was a lot of driving. I decided not to check calories. I made a pound cake & had vanilla ice cream. Wasn't able to drink alcohol because I drove so much. I swam, played tennis & did my ST/Abs/Stretches.
Friday & Sunday attended DS soccer game. They didn't win any but was good to see him in a different setting. I was proud of how he played hard to the end. So gotta plan the rest of his summer.
