hubby came to me and asked if we could create a "schedule" so that we could get back in the gym. I said... YES! Delighted to think about going back to the gym, getting some much needed exercise back in our lives and taking back control of what has felt out of control for so many months.
That was several weeks ago... the schedule still hasn't come to fruition. :( It seems that neither one of us can move the mental block that keeps us where we are.
So, today... I have decided to put the time down in pencil and go over it with him... today, before we go to bed tonight, we will at least have an idea of our schedule.

Every time you misstep on your healthy journey, you have two choices: to keep walking backwards, which will surely take you even further away from your goals; or to accept your lack of perfection as normal and forgivable, and take not one, but two positive steps down the path that brings your closer to the future you want.

When you are trying to figure out your way, and you have been praying and still struggling, and you ask God for a sign, watch out!!!
The sign God gives may not always be the one you want, and it may not always leave you with warm fuzzies!
I have been looking for a job, and I had an offer for one. My hubby wasn't really satisfied with the job, and I was struggling with whether to take it or not. I mean, some income is better than no income, but do I take a job knowing that I might still be looking for a better one?? or do I jump into this one with both feet and give it a go?? or, do I pass this up and hope something better will come along BEFORE my unemployment runs out in May?
So I prayed. Alot. And, on Sunday at church, I asked God to show me the path he wanted me to take. "Send me a sign"....
I got my sign alright... the Tie Rod in my car went bad. $450 to fix it!! Ok, job needed to pay for unbudgeted car repair. Guess I'm taking that job eh?? LOL.
Truthfully, I do feel it was the nudge needed to make me see the "light". But, it was also the nudge my hubby needed to be ok with the job as well. A bit of negotiation on salary and days off and voila...a job that will be good for all of us. :)
So, I'm supposed to start on Tuesday (April 1 - April Fools Day?!?!??! YIKES). I'm excited and nervous, and now, I have a million loose ends to tie up before Tuesday. :)

I am currently unemployed. I have been looking for a job, but haven't found one yet. I will. But, that allows me to CHOOSE if I want to get up or not. Most days, I love getting up with my hubby and making his lunch, fixing his to-go coffee, and seeing him out the door. Last week, he decided to just let me sleep, and last week was my low spot.
What does that tell me?? I AM A MORNING PERSON! I have always known this, but this is just confirmation to me. I get the most done in my day before 1pm. I hit a wall at 1pm and not only do I lose energy and motivation, but I also start craving SUGAR.
Yesterday, I battled the craving by chewing gum, but I didn't conquer the lethargy that hit and found myself sitting in front of the tv.
Today, I have a plan. I'm going to do my normal stuff this morning. I got up and took my hubby to work, and will get my house chores done this morning. This afternoon, I am going to GO OUTSIDE. The sun is supposed to shine all day today. ;) And, I'm going to clean off the back deck and get some pansies and put in a pot for the table. :) If I stay BUSY during my "dreaded hours", maybe I won't notice that they are here??

Sunshine has an ENORMOUS effect on my attitude, my energy level, and my overall sense of well being.
Yesterday, when the sun came out for two hours, I felt MAGNIFICENT. When it got cloudy and cold and started snowing, my mood and my energy level fell sharply.
I am observing that NOW, a day after. I didn't pay attention to it yesterday.
I am so very happy that it is going to be sunny today!
And, now, I have to get my son to work...
