Happy to be alive!

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Good day SP friends. I am so happy to be alive after a bad night of storms. We are a house full of very sleepy people (and dogs) but all glad to be here today. I hear most of the storms went North of us and tornadoes swept across the South. I can't imagine what it's like to have everything you own and love come crashing down. God bless those who are in need and have been affected by this wave of bad weather. On another note, my appetite has taken a huge turn. I still crave the sweet, salty, starch...ok, I still crave it all, BUT I am noticing that when I eat what I crave I am not finding it to be the tasty joy I thought it was going to be. Therefore I am eating much less and I am not going back to the kitchen (as often) to search for that goodie. I am thankful for that! Hope to keep it up. Shout out to all of you to keep up the good work! Going to take a nap now. I am beat!! Take care!

    Glad you and your family are safe and doing ok emoticon Keep up the good work with the eating. Left over Easter candy is getting the best of me; can't wait for it to be gone! But have been consistant with my nightly exercise to help offset it. Hope you got the rest you need. Take care emoticon

Once weekly is better than none, right?

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Hello everyone! Here I am about 1 week from my last blog. I am feeling very guilty about not blogging more but I really have been VERY busy and just plain worn out. So I wanted to drop a line to my SP friends to let you know I have been thinking of you all. Hope you are doing well and I am happy to know I have inspired some of you to work on your vision collage. It is so much fun. Can't wait to see your collages, I know they will be great! Hugs to all of you and to all my Indy girls....good weather expected this weekend. Stay strong and I am hanging in there by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin.

    Honey, don't feel guilty and please don't feel you have to justify yourself - life happens. It's lovely to hear from you and to know that when you have some time, you'll keep in touch. You take care.

    This is something that I have yet to do. just not to sure how to go about it really. Not to creative on that front either.

Glad to see your blog though.

Have a great tuesday too!

I'm still here

Thursday, April 21, 2011

I'm still here thanks to the support of my SP friends! I haven't tracked food and haven't logged in daily but here I am on my first day off to blog. It does help and I am so thankful to SNOWMAIDEN, MAMACUSHION, SINGAGAIN, JMAYS831 for all of your kind words on my last blog. I honestly do believe that if I feel the need and desire to blog and share my thoughts and feelings that it is a step in the right direction. I hope this upcoming will find me tracking food and exercise again. I am still working on my visual collage and having a good time doing it. I have really cleared out the clutter in my mind in regards to what I want for the future. What an eye opener!! Hope everyone has had a great week so far and that the world is being kind to you. You all rock!

    I wish I could blog emoticon I never seem to know what to say. I have been working on a vision collage too. It is quite inspirational and fun envisioning all the possibilities. I am glad you didn't give up! I look forward to hearing about your day whether good or bad. Keep up the good work emoticon . Hope your weekend was a beautiful one emoticon.

    Blog away! You do whatever works for you. Everyone will be doing their own thing on this site. If at the moment, you feel happy blogging, you go for it, it's always lovely to hear from you.

...and it works both ways you know. I started a vision collage a long time ago. A friend saw it and laughed. I felt humiliated, especially as she told other people about it. I took it apart, threw everything on it away and put the board in the attic. Well, you know what? I'm going to get my board down over Easter and start again so thank you for inspiring me.

You've inspired me to complete my vision collage... maybe Hubby & I will have a vision collage party this weekend.

Much love to you as you continue your healthy journey. Have a wonderful day! Love & sunshine, Jodee

Trying to hang in there

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Since my previous posting things haven't gotten any better. I feel as if I am on the verge of completely giving up. Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post and helped me realize that I am stretching to hang in there. I have decided today that I will concentrate on my vision collage and put that notebook in my purse to track food. I just can't give up even though I haven't been doing very well to say the least. This is growing pains. All the good things in life don't come easy. I have to keep telling myself this. It's easier to make it through the rough patch instead of starting over completely. Sorry that I haven't been a good SP friend, team mate or give much support to all those who have been so kind to me. I promise I will make it up! I appreciate all of you and you are my inspiration! God Bless.

    Hang in there. I am in the same rut but we can get thru this together! Just keep moving forward. Every little step helps no matter how insignificant it may seem at the time. This will pass, the sun will come out, and the back side of the hill will appear. Thinking of you. Send me a message if you need any support.

    I'm so very glad that you are still here, and still blogging. I think that as long as you are here you haven't given up on yourself. Let our belief in you carry you for awhile. So what if you are taking a few steps back. You're still facing the right direction!!

Keep your chin up and love yourself through this. And remember we're all here for you. Now go outside and play! Love & hugs, Jodee

Running out of time!

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Since I started school this week I have not tracked food or cardio and haven't even logged in to SP. I am starting to realize that I just may not be able to do it all. Maybe if I track my food in a notebook and then log in on my days off to record them. It's been really hard to balance out work, school, home, husband, dogs...etc. I hope I can get on some type of routine that include SP. Hope all of you are doing well. So tired, going to get moving so I don't waste the beautiful day away. God Bless!

    The fact that you've recognised a problem and found a possible solution shows that you haven't given up. That is the key to success. Try your notebook idea and see how it works out.

    I like your idea of tracking in a notebook. Maybe it just won't get posted on the site, but at least you are keeping a record. You can do this!

    I hope you can find a good way to work everything in. Both my wife and I are back in school....so I know how hard it can be to juggle everything...
