    It finally worked! Woohoo! How cute! We tried to teach our cat the same trick unsuccessfully. You should keep on practicing and submit the video to the late night show that does the silly pet tricks. I bet you'd get on. LOL

Healthy eating and exercise......and teeth

Thursday, February 04, 2010

So today we were going out to dinner and I made sure I researched and tracked what I was going to have prior to even leaving the house. I stuck to it, this thing is really sticking and I like it!!!!!!! I also went on the treadmill for a half hour , my right hip is hurting a bit so a ran 1 mile then slow walked another. I rested yesterday. So the two days I didn't walk or run this year are 1/1 and 2/2 that will make my next 100% rest day 3/3 ha ha ha ha

Yesterday my daughter ende up wanting to get picked up early from school because her tooth was really hurting her. I made an appoinment for this afternoon to get it looked at. Well after she came home she seemed kinda ok, so I thought about just canceling her "emergency" appointment and scheduling one with a cleaning. Well I decided to instead talk to my daughter and explain that if it could wait that it would be better. She told me that it did really hurt and she thought she needed to go today. So I took my mommy instinct against what I thought and kept the appointment. After some x-rays and stuff the dentist said um yeah I bet that really hurts. Her tooth under her baby tooth was completely sideways pushing out her gum. He said the baby tooth was loose butt needed to come out now. So I told him go ahead and pull it and like a min later he had it out. She hardly even clentched, with no novicane. I didn't realize he meant he was going to take it out right then. She immediately felt relief, yeah!!!!! So I guess she really did need to go. Where he took the tooth out is her adult tooth the whole side is showing. I guess it should hopefully now turn rightside up. Any who here is a pic from the dentist, the have a tv attached with cable. It's crazy LoL

A Journal to myself - Where did I go wrong??

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

So I am really tring to reflect on what I have been holding onto all these years. Why can't I seem to let go of stuff? Why have I been afraid of being alone? What fears do I have? Why am I so down and sad deep down? Why do I carry so many people's weight on my shoulders? And how do I change all of this? How do I make my life happy, healthy, and positive?

I seem to have problems being a pack rat or something of the sorts no matter how hard I try I end up keeping just about everything. I really don't want to be that way and I feel bad about doing it. I'm not sure why I hold on to some things, someday I just might use it.... someone gave it to me...... It has value.... I think now I'm really trying to let go and see the value of having only what I need. Having nicer things and less of them. Someday may never come and the clutter and hording is bringing me down. I am going to try to change this by filling atleast one trash bag or good will bag per a week. I NEED to let go, I WILL be ok!!!!!!!

I may kinda pretend that I'm moving and can only take with me a certain amount of stuff. What is important to me? The next issue I have come up with is that I think I have always been afraid to be alone. But I think I am over that now. Not that I want to be alone, but I will be ok. I can surround myself with positive people that want to be around me and like me for me. I have felt so helpless in some aspects of my life but I need to take control and be happy :o) What am I truley afraid of....... I'm not really sure maybe I'm afraid of success, I don't know . I need to focus on my life and making it tick. Some days I just feel like I want to run away from it all and no one would even care. Infact many would be happy. I love the motivation and spark I get from this site!!! I like to try to support one another in positive ways!!

It brings me great job when I'm able to lift someone up or help them. I really just love helping poeple. I truely thank all my spark friends for helping me along my journey to health.

I really think signing up for the half marathon is a BIG step for me, I'm very excited, but scared. I CAN DO THIS !!!!!! and I WILL !!!

I've got the eating and the exercise under control and I really need to focus on my emotional well being. I can do this no matter how hard it is. I need to stay strong and realize the difference between being there for someone and someone being toxic to me that I deal with in person. I think I have a hard time with this. I need to be able to turn things around and have healthy relationships.

This is kinda a rambeling journal to myself that I just need to put down somewhere. But if anyone has any ideas or suggestions that would be great. My mind is all over the place lately and I'm trying my all to focus and stay that way.

Thanks to all that have supported me and taken my support both ways are very empowering and keep me going strong. I really need to stay positive :o) I need to not hurt so much inside. I guess I'm just confused, but am trying to figure things out. Hugz to all, can't wait to meet fellow sparkers at the Rally next month!!!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful day!!

A almost forgot I had my weigh-in this am and lost 3 pounds!!!!! I am doing this, my life will be healthier and happier. I just need a path, a plan, and my true friends :o)

I leave you with a cute picture of pumpkin, our kitty. I have no idea how he was comfortable.

    That is a funny picture of your cat.
Congratulations on the 3 lb weight loss! emoticon emoticon emoticon
I can relate to the hording. I have a tough time with it myself. It takes allot of work and effort to get rid of all that old stuff. Who knows when you might need it. I'm constantly working on it. Just take one little step at a time and you'll get there.

You sound really sad. I'm sorry. I'm sure you'll begin to feel more positive real soon. We all have those days.

    Aww Amy!! Great job on the 3 lbs loss!! That is fantastic! emoticonYou worked super hard to drop those lbs to the curb! I struggle with keeping things. I used to be really bad about it. I find everything sentimental, it had a memory to it...but I had to get control of myself and learn to pass it on....the hardest thing for me is that i HATE to throw perfectly good stuff away....knowing that I can donate it really helps because I know that I someone else may appreciate it and if not, I know I did the right thing. It's still tough though, If you can drop the baggage on your body so to say, you can drop the other baggage in your life too. I KNOW you will FIND a way to cope and make it happen! You have a great determination inside of you.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonOH yeah....I love you too! Thanks for constantly keeping me going! emoticon

    Tried everywhere, but it looks like the iFit Live isn't in the UK yet.

Went for a treadmill with an iFit card instead, and currently hacking an SD card to make my own workouts. It's awesome. :)
