Needing to work on other areas of myself

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

Hello all

After twenty days of keeping track the only thing that I've concluded is that I'm wasting my time writing. I've lost no weight and its because I've made no dietary changes that have stuck. I stress eat alot because I get depressed from having no money and being stuck at home all day and my son fusses alot because he is bored.

What I'd love to do is have him back in day care and I'd love to find work but I've blown all the cool jobs I had a few weeks ago. I'm still on the look out for a great business idea. I had a good one last year and met with a SCORE exec. I decided that it wasn't what I really wanted to do with my time. So I plan to make another appt with an exec soon for my new idea.

I am trying out something based on a new weekend job that I've landed. I'll be doing food sampling work. I have always enjoyed food service, especially in catering. However I don't want to run a catering company. I don't like to cook that much and I hate doing dishes even more. LOL. So I'm going to go in again and see what they say, I guess what could hurt me is lack of experience but I'm hoping I can educate myself here at home

If this idea doesn't pan out then back to the drawing board. I like it because its my first original idea and I figure that its a real breakthrough in the brainstorming process

I think if I'm going to get anywhere losing weight I've got to work on my attitude and my perception. I want to lose weight. I need to set up goals for myself. I've got to get it through my head every single day that this is hard for everyone, not just me. Life is hard for everyone. You've got to want it and work at it everyday. Sigh.............

    It sounds like you and Joey need a more stimulating life. I hope that your efforts lead to a job so that both of you can have more outside experiences. It may lead to success on the diet front as well.

    I just got a job tutoring/providing therapy to an autistic child in his home. The only prerequisite is a bachelors degree. They have clients all over, and the pay is above average. Not very exciting but nice to get paid. If you are interested, the name of the company is Agency for Behavioral Services.

    Good luck with your job endeavors. I hope it all works out for you and you find something you love.
    This journey is not easy for anyone, I am learning that. It's like what I struggle with may not be what someone else struggles with, but we all have some kind of struggle to deal with.
    You can do this, I know you can!

    there are tones of things to do that are free to keep the kids busy. the city parks, most library's offer reading programs in the summer and they do story telling, dont know how old your little one is but you can use old socks to make sock puppets and put on a show for each other, just going outside and discovering around the yard the flowers that are blooming last for at least 30 min. thoughs are just a few. Google some stuff online to do on a budget or free.

    Oh hun. I think it's good to be accountable. Even if you want to send a msg to me and let me know how you're doing, do it.

    I hear you on the fussy baby and the stress from money problems. It will hopefully get better soon!

    You said that none of your changes have stuck. Did you make small changes or a bunch of big ones? Sometimes it's easier to change one or two things and work on those. Once those stick, add another change. Keep building on what you've started and pretty soon you will have a whole new set of habits.

    Best of luck to you! You CAN do this!
