it's a good kind of sore...

Friday, March 01, 2013

I had a great day Wednesday. I stayed in my calorie range, and did a great treadmill wieght routine at the gym. I qualified for a new lower rate at the gym, and bought my supplements. Thursday, I was a little sore, and it was raining so I decline to go walking. Today, I oversleep but feel great and am ready for a good day.

On one hand, Life is pretty stressfull. My job is lower in job satisfaction than it has every been, my husand and I are taking a huge financial risk, there are financial worries and distance in our relationship. I am parenting three teenagers, one who is preparing for college ( how are we going to pay for that?) One who is busy with athletics, church, boyscouts but doesn't drive, and one who is "sick" and is affecting his grades. Medical intervention for psychsomatic illness cost money... anyway, I could blog all day on how stressfull this all is but the point of blogging is to point out that while all this chaos is swirling around and in me, I am sticking to the diet, getting to the gym most days and keeping up with Spark. It's a huge change from 2010 when I would have crumpled.

    So sorry there is a lot going on. We have three sons I know it is a handful. If your son is about to go to college make sure to search for financial aid and scholarships.

    Athletic son might be able to car pool with others there was always others in my car for sure so that might be of help.

    Most schools have counselors to help with any social problems. Maybe he needs an evaluation of what your school district can offer. I hope someone can help you in these matters.
    Most important in families is "communication". Talk to your sons and your DH and that might help you both to be able to understand the problems and you might find their input helpful.
    Meantime take care of yourself. Eat as healthy as you can. Real foods, unprocessed if you can use it. I found chemical sensitivities to chemicals in food and dyes in food really impacted my life. I hope you keep up the good work. Take care and blog when you get frustrated and talk within the family too. If your son is almost ready for college he can talk adult talk about any scholarships he can find out about, they are out there. Career counselors should be helping in school .

    Hi Kate,

    sounds like you have plenty on your plate.
    Don't forget though, if you're not well, the rest will fall apart.
    Keep pushing - you can achieve whatever you have your mind set on!
