Rough Saturday

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Well, I sure felt horrible by the end of the day yesterday. I started the day by unloading the car from my mom's trip to Maine and then had to put it all away. The list I made at the end of the evening to make myself feel good about what I did was 25 items long... no wonder I was tired, feeling very vulnerable and unappreciated.. it included vacuuming the whole house, and it's a big house.. mopping 3 rooms, kitchen alone is 15X13 ft., and doing laundry, and cleaning bathrooms, doing dishes and making lunch mom do the dishes while I was outside helping brother today. I should have had my cell phone and taken a pic cuz he was ~40 feet up in the air boarding up an old barn... he needed me there (on the ground) watching... not that I could have done anything except be the first to call 911 any faster.... but she also cooked supper, and I gave mine to the dog...

I've been doing a lot of emotional eating lately, I am sure it's going to cost me on the scale... not good...too much stress and time for me to take back control of my life and not allow others to be controlling me in this way again....

today, I got to enjoy time with my great niece and nephew... he's 6 mths. and so cute and happy and smiley and she is 3 and talking a lot more to me, even shared here chair with me today and we went walking and she took my hand and we walked down to the piles of potatoes and dirt and I taught her to sing "I'm the King of the CAstle and You're the Dirty Rascal... as she ran up and down the piles getting me to help her down.

back to class tomorrow..
p.s. I did take the time to take a nice long walk, and also a bubble not a total loss.

    Hi there,
    Glad to hear you got to take a bubble bath, the nice long walk and especially happy to read about your time spent with the great niece and nephew. It is obvious that you are a very special person and very loving - Kids always know who the best people are and they tend to gravitate towards them.

    Well, buddy, I surely relate to the emotional eating and the stress that sometimes causes us to get off track. Been there a lot lately myself and, like you, I do want to get control of the problem. Unfortunately, can't wave any magic wands that would control all of the stress in our lives right now - (Wish I could!) - but I can tell ya you are not alone. For the good days and the great weigh-ins, we're here for you ... and for those times when things get off track and comfort seems only to be found in food, we're here for you. Wanna know why? LOL, cause so many of us find ourselves in the same boat and believe me we, too, are happy to know that YOU are also here for us.

    Give yourself a big hug and imagine it coming from your spark buddies - Cuz it is.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You will get back, sometimes you need a change to get a different perspective. Good luck!
