I am back to my same routine. Lost internet last night and didn't get to get back on to read everyone else's blogs before bed. I did all my exercises on Lower Body and did some extra stretching when I went in to take a shower. I went to work this morning and have to run to the store for dinner stuff when I go pick up hubby and son from work. Staying positive and watching everything I eat. I have started having some stomach problems which milk does help but I can't afford that many calories so I guess I will start modifying my diet to help my stomach. I will have to give up a lot of my spices and go back to eating bland foods for a while. It really sucks to have to do that but these things happen when you stress and worry all the time like I have been doing. Trying not to stress and worry but it is really hard. I am a worrier at heart and have always done so. My word for today is Cheerful. No worrying today I will be positive and cheerful, and will start trying to duplicate that attitude each morning. Wake up early so that I can exercise first and give myself a pep talk to retain that attitude another day. I have not cried or gotten really stressed in about 1 week. I am starting another streak. This may all change in two weeks if we end up getting custody of Kaelin and her sister Kristen. It has been a couple of years since Kaelin lived with us and her sister never has. They have the same mom but not same dad. Serious business but hopefully the people making that decision will make it based entirely on what is best for the girls. I really believe that will be to live with us for now at least until mom gets her head screwed back on straight. If they do come to live with us it will only be stressful for a little while until Kristen learns that there are consequences to everything you do. Took Kaelin about a week to get house rules down and we have no problems at all with her now. Rules are one of the things lacking in their home life now. We will find out 3/10 when mom's court date is set.

    Stay positive my friend. And when you wake up, start out by saying to yourself or out loud like I do, "Thank you for another day". I have to say, when I got up and excercised this morning and did my blogs and posts, the positive feeling floated on throughout my day. I still had stresses at work, people whining, rude callers, you name it. But I got through them with a smile. Youve got such a great streak going, I'm so happy for you!!!

    Oh, I'm on some anxiety medication, a small dosage that I take daily that has really helped me. I'm like you I think, worry too much and often on things I don't need to or worry too much/too long. I really lucked out with this medicine because it has helped me clear my head and be able to rationalize better and not make mountains out of molehills. DOn't get me wrong, I still cry and have my usual emotions. Every body is different, but just wanted to share my experience =)

    You sound really motivated about your diet and exercise, maybe your enforced break from it wasn't such a bad thing. Best of luck with the custody case.
