Been a while

Friday, July 11, 2014

Finally back on SP! Was not able to access it at work anymore again. I finally found a new job, almost 2 dollars more and hour plus 15 minutes from home. So excited! I also completed my real estate classes last night, passed the test to move on and take the state exam, yeah! Found out that work covers having gastric by pass surgery. I am really thinking about having this done, but it is such a big decision and there is such a stigma about it is seems, maybe that is just me. "The easy way out" kind of thing.
Anyways everything else is good and I am in a much happier place, work wise!
God Bless and have a great weekend everyone!

Day 10

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Yesterday went much better! We will see how today goes.
Raining here today, but it is nice and cool out. I won't get home tonight until around 10 or 11, depending on when my instructor lets us out of class. I can wait until my classes are complete. I worry that I won't be able to get clients to sell houses for, but I just need to trust in God, He knows what he is doing. I feel that this is the right path to take for me right now. I definitely can't keep working and commuting like I am right now!
This morning was one of those mornings that I just kept staring at my son. Sometimes I just can't believe he is mine. I love him so much. Yes, I get angry with him and want a break from him, but when I get to sit with him for a few minutes in the morning and watch some cartoons before leaving for work, it makes me so happy. I would do anything for him. I think that is why I am stepping out of my comfort zone to do real estate. I want the best for him. I want to own my own home. I want to be debt free. If I can make this work, that can happen. My husband makes good money already, but I feel most of that goes towards my step-kids, they always want something. I rarely ever buy anything for my son. So this is going to be for him!
Have a blessed day everyone!

Days 7,8 & 9

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Haven't been doing well on the food or exercise. Gained a pound back. Just going to push myself to do better. I have to make this happen!! My knees are crapping out on me, my body hurts all the time. I feel 20 years older than I am!! I really want to lose all of this weight by next years b-day so for my 40th b-day I look great! Now I just need to stop self-sabotaging. Not sure why I do this. I know I have an emotional eating problem, as soon as something bad happens, or I am just in a bad mood, I eat. Yep need to get that in check!
Other than that, every day has pretty much blended into the next. I am so busy working, commuting, going to school and taking care of house and kids, I feel like I am going crazy!! I wish I had a vacation coming up, I really need one!!
Well, off to make some positive things happen!
Have a blessed day everyone!!

    Suggestion with regard to the emotional eating: focus on a 'normal' eating pattern: make it more normal to not eat in between meals. For example by:
eating 3 meals and 2 or 3 snacks at regular times. Make sure your meals are nutritious and healthy so your body gets what it needs and won't nag for junk.
Batch cooking (making a big amount of vegetable / bean soup or stew 2x a week and freezing portions) helps me A LOT to have healthy food ready when I'm hungry.

Days 4,5 &6

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Well the last few days didn't go according to plan! lol
Thursday was my birthday. I planned on going to work like usual but ended up staying at home with my 2 year old, oldest step-daughter and my husband who all had a stomach bug. Needless to say that was not how I planned my birthday!! lol
Eating was so-so that day.
Friday, went to work, everyone felt better! I was so busy at work catching up that I had no time to come on here and blog. Eating was terrible. Started driving home from work, about an hour and a half commute when my stomach started hurting. I thought it was maybe the stomach bug everyone else had, but I am talking serious pain here. I really didn't know if I was going to make it home! By the time I was almost home it stopped, just like that! About 20 minutes later, yep you guessed it!, it started again. Lasted for over and hour. I was doubled over in agony. I have never felt pain like that. I was getting dressed and about to have my husband bring me to the ER when it stopped again. I laid down on the bed and fell right to sleep! This morning I am feeling better, stomach is a little tender. My Mom thinks it may have been a gallstone, so I guess I need to make an appointment with the doctor.
Today I am at work again. Doing good so far!!
Have a blessed day everyone!

Birthdays are difficult for me too. So sorry you had the terrible pain! Do see a doctor.

Day 3

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Well, kind of sucked on my food yesterday. I went to Wendy's for lunch and then I had 5 chocolate chip cookies that my stepdaughter made. Yeah, wasn't a good day! Not gonna beat myself up over it, I really have been good for the past 3 weeks. Going to move on and tackle today!
I forgot my shake for lunch, so I picked up a frozen lean cuisine meal for lunch and I will have my shake for dinner.
I really need to start exercising too. I am going to try to get up at 4:30 tomorrow morning and do a workout dvd. I will let you know tomorrow whether I was successful or not!
Have a blessed day everyone!

    emoticon So how are you doing now?
Remember that it's much more important to keep picking yourself up than to be perfect with all your goals and plans.
Regarding exercise: how about just taking a 10 minute walk every day to start with? You can always expand later on. But it's quite good to just get into a habit of doing SOME thing, however small, every day to move in the right direction!
I just subscribed to your blog so I hope to see post again soon!

    It took me 3 weeks on fast break to figure out what substitutions I needed to make to make my nutrition work. Glad you are not beating yourself up. You need to stay positive to give yourself a comfortable safe place to learn the changes you need for a successful journey.
Make today a good one.

    Good that you're not beating yourself up about any lapses. Refocus and reboot!
