Happy New Year!!!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I know this is near the end of January but I figure it's better late than never. I hope everyone has been making the best out of your time thus far in 2013. I have really been missing in action in keeping up with my blog, however, I have been rejuvenated in my fitness plans. I bought an elliptical and must say it's truly inspiring.

Being overly blessed in the lady lumps department, it's nice not to be attacked by my own body when doing cardio. Also the short videos here on SP are a good end to my nightly workouts.

As some of you know, I am graduating in May! *Just got my announcements in the mail, and on my way to order my cap and gown* I will also be in a wedding in June for my best friend since 7th grade, in New Orleans. And a few days after the wedding will be my 24th birthday. So this summer, I definitely have some things to look forward to and YES I WILL be wearing my swimming suit!!!! Can't Wait!

I want to start off with apologizing to my buddies on here, we were going strong for weeks and then I just fell off. There have been so many things going on in my life that have required my complete attention. So please bear with me as I jump back on my train to my goals.

I know this comes with the territory: when your kids start school (daycare), they are going to get sick. I just don't like that people still bring their kids there while their highly contagious (like pink eye).

On my other hand, I care for my elderly grandmother and we are having to decide if hip replacement is a good option. In all honesty, this is ultimately her decision. I'm just nervous for her. And worried that I won't have the (enough) time to continue to care for her, provide for my two kids, finish my last two semesters so I can graduate from college, keep up with household chores, continue to be happy in my relationship, rech my fitness goal, AND remember to feed the dog.

For some reason, my family doesn't and/or can't understand this. I try hard not to snap on them when they complain to me about their problems. I know everyone has their own threshold for stress and what's stressful for me may not be what's stressful to you. BUT geesh, how about they take the time to simply listen to what i have to say, instead of making their issues more 'grand' than mine. someone's drowning in front of you, do you comfort them by saying my near death experience was more horrifing than yours?

Anyways, not wanting to sound cold or anything, just trying to let go of some things that are/have been bugging me, so i can move on. Again, thanks for reading and hopefully understanding.

    So sorry to hear about all that you are dealing with. I can only imagine as I was the care taker for my Mom for 6 years and I know it can be challenging. Your grandmother is so lucky to have you. Such a giving thing to do. I hope somehow you can find some time for yourself. you certainly deserve it.
Peace be with you.
Thoughts coming your way.

    Wow, you are dealing with a lot. Good luck on getting them to listen to what you have to say, and don't worry about sounding cold, because you don't. I totally understand what you're going through. I'm the care taker in my family, and I always put everyone else before me. Then when I needed a break, or help, I found myself on my own. What you have got to remember, is that you are only one person, you can't do it all. And no matter what you do, you can't please everybody, so try doing some things to please you. Your babies needs Mama to be around. So if it takes snapping on someone to be heard, then snapping it is, because stress is nothing to play with. I hope you can find the time to squeeze in some type of relaxation, if nothing more than a bubble bath after the kids are in bed. I'll be praying for the strength and guidance you need to make it through this. emoticon

Not the same...

Friday, August 10, 2012

After taking the three min step test, just coming to the realization that I do NOT have the same high school cheerleader body I grew used to. Not only was I winded during those three minutes, I got a horrible score. My heart is definitely not healthy, no wonder my cholesterol is way high!!

Even though my legs were burning from my workout this morning, I was able to stick in there and ended up doing 78 steps (up/up/down/down) in three minutes. Not to shabby considering 18 months ago I couldn't finish the test :(

So, I'm not discouraged by my score, just one more goal to be accomplished by the end of this journey. Remember, our golden age is not behind but ahead.

    You won't have the same cheerleader body, but stick with it and you will have a great new body.

    It doesn't take long for us to lose that "cheerleader" body - especially those of us who were never cheerleaders to begin with. But I am really happy that you are realistic enough to see your progress and recognize that this will only happen over time and with hard work.

Good for you. Celebrate your small successes.

    Yes Angel, I'm not sure if this is a pay site, but you don't have to have an account to make a 'glog'. I've been trying to figure out how to print it out but no luck just yet. Thanks for taking a look at it!

I've never heard of that site that you can make those online.. Sweet!! But seems to be a pay site? I'm not a student and only sort of a teacher .. I'm a Director of Religious Education at a church..
