Thanks and Ramblings!

Friday, January 04, 2013

First I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful comments yesterday. I was really down on myself yesterday and the ďwonderfulĒ people around me were not making things any easier. I think part of the problem is the drama llama moved into my personal life before Christmas and the stupid thing hasnít left.

Just keeps giving me one gift after another. I really HATE the drama llama! Makes me into someone I donít like. Add that to feeling down Ė not the Kitty I want to be. So every blog I start to write starts sounds whiney! YUCK!!!

I did end up having a decent day yesterday (but I owe my January challenge a video Ė didnít get it in last night). Stayed in calorie and had some down time. So that was good.

Iím also trying to take the bull by the horns, so to speak. Iím tired of all of this and Iím really acting out like a . . . large female dog?

Hey but it is a good day. I might feel crappy emotionally right now, but I can still strut my stuff and jingle my earrings! (Got more hoops last night).

To jump start my new year on the first I will achieve

4 sets of body weight exercises
3 planned meals
2 Motivational Articles
1 SparkPeople video

    I'm glad you had a good day today. Tell the drama queens to pipe down and keep it to themselves.

    Dear Kitty,

You are such an inspiration as our team leader. I am so glad I clicked on your homepage to learn more about you. Your blogs are even more inspirational than you daily challenges (which I rely on).

And, from one take-no-prisoners broad to another: BEE-OTCH is the wrong word.

You are a strong, determined person willing to fight for her happiness and sanity. Good for you! You are a beautiful woman who gives to others (me), inspires strangers (me), WHILE SHE WORKS 2 jobs, FIGHTS for her health, and is COURAGEOUS enough to be honest.

Frack the negative self-talk. You ROCK.

And, I'm sorry about the drama llama: I'm having a visit, too. If you don't mind a brief Buddha mention: Life is dukkha. (I like to translate to poop, but its really: life is uncomfortable.) And that just sucks sometimes.

But remember: YOU ROCK.

    I hate drama! And yes, it began its visit right about Christmas. Not enough medicine to help me right now. Hives are rampant.

Hugs to your good attitude!

    That drama llama is ugly, mean, and he smells bad. Tell him he can't live with you anymore.

    You CAN do it, and I'm sure you WILL!
It;s just some bad days, maybe doing something different (dancing, going to the movies etc) will change your perspective and it will solve the problem!

    I have never heard of the drama llama, but now that you mention it, I see him staring me right in the face! Thank you for giving me a visual to KICK in the butt.

YOU will kick its A$$. I am quite sure of this.

    Jeepers! I'm trying to keep up with you, but 4 body weight exercises a day? You know, when I am able to be a large female dog I am damn proud of myself! So strut it, jingle it and bark like a big girl! I'm feeling emotionally crappy too. I know that in order to get out of a funk you have to go thru the funk, so give yourself time to wallow in it and then move out of it! That is what I am doing. If you catch me hanging in it too long, pull me out! I promise to do the same for you!

    I hate Drama LLamas, but you do have a cute pic of one. Sorry to hear about its permanent residence, however. But hang in there, maybe it'll get a one way ticket out of there soon. You're doing so well physically, hope the mental side gets in balance. emoticon

    Get a little extra exercise by dragging that llama to the door and shoving it out into the cold! I have to do 2 more body weight exercises to meet the challenge, but I got everything else accomplished already

    Drama Llamas . . . they . . . SPIT! But the main thing is . . . kick that fuzzy buddy out the door! Hope all goes better.

Have a good weekend.

    I don't plan all my meals but I track before eating and see if I can afford the calories(that's when I'm not completely ignoring everything)
