November Insanity

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

November has been insane!

There has been some kind of food function at least once a week that I must attend. Celebrations are great, but up to a point and it becomes insanity. I miss my known food, foods that I know exactly what they are made of.

I have been told more than once that I don't need to lose any more. Maybe I'm tightening up. I've added more weight exercises, using heavier weights.

I'm jumping up and down the scales, (not in joy ;) . I also contracted a cold for the whole month. Wow. Not a mild one, one that makes my face hurt (sinuses). DH too has stuffed up ears, can't hear it thunder. Exercising has been less because of this. Better now.

Somebody thought it great to try to mess with our server, so we had computer malfunction too, (no easy food tracking). Maybe they thought they could get in to mess with our credit on "Cyber Monday". We don't really do that anyway, order very few items online at ANY time. Our security blocked them, but the computer would not go online.

I will be getting more hours to work for December because so many people want days off. Well, maybe that's good for me. I need to try and think more positively. Help!

I am truly blessed. Satan has a way of showing all the negative things, blinding us to the positives. It's poison!

"Rejoice in all things" No matter what is going on, we need to pay attention to that inner joy.

Have a great holiday season this November/December!

    Other than the computer problems and outside-home employment comments, I SO IDENTIFY with everything you just wrote!! Especially the last two comments, Satan's attacks and our counter-offensive of Rejoicing - good reminders to me to always be on guard and to think of my blessings instead of always complaining. Thanks for the post!! emoticon emoticon

    Those food functions can be killers. December may not be much better. I know you can overcome though. Join the Down, Down, Weigh Down December Challenge on the Alabama page.
    btw, do you work in retail? I serve on a church staff and my calendar is already full for most of December with church functions and family functions.
    Should be a wild ride.

    It definitely does sound like it has been a hectic time for you! When we are tired and sick it's easy to see the negatives. Sometimes you just get down. But, like all things, those times pass (sometimes it seems like that thought is the only thing that gets me through).

    It's good to hear you are feeling better, and maybe working more hours will put you in touch with people you wouldn't otherwise be around, or give you ideas you might not otherwise think of. And of course, it will probably put money in your pocket that wouldn't otherwise be there :)

    Congratulations on the weight/muscle progress. Tightening up is definitely a good thing!
