Summer can officially begin....NOW!

Monday, June 24, 2013

Hellllllooooooo there Sparkfriends!

It sure has been a while since you all have heard from me. Since my last blog, I have been ubersuperbusy....which is busy X 10 in my world. And I can honestly say, that between job hunting and such, I am kinda GLAD not to have been working this past month because hoooooweee! It would have been a rough one with a new job thrown on top of it! I just looked at the past month's calendar, and it's just a whole mess of writing and scribble for who goes where at what time!

So now...summer, can officially begin! It's Monday, there is no Supermoon, there is nothing going on today except a Craigslist perusal and email barrage, the kids have nothing pressing (that is tomorrow's fun), and we are recouperating from a long weekend of retirement celebration for my Dad and my son's birthday parties - yup, one on each day! WHEW!

I am pooped!

And I was pretty stressed to, to be completely honest with everyone.

Not one minute of tracking nutrition emoticon I know, right? For me, that is like a carninal sin, especially when I am stressed.

Not one minute of tracked exercise - although, I did mow the lawn a whole lot - emoticon

Not sleeping great emoticon

So let's do the math now....what does all of the add up to????

Well, let me tell ya:
emoticon #1 on the list is BLOATING!!!! LOTS of it. YAY BLOAT! Ok, now that you've been here a while, you can go away now.

emoticon Out of my range! This is a BIG #2 (in more ways than just a number - BAAHAHAHA!) Yup, I have seen 138 on the scale...Ummmm, haven't seen that in AGES. I know what I have to do too, but yes, life has gotten in the way. It does happen, even to the most experienced of people. I fact, hubby and I are both up a little more than we like (him is 10 up and me is 5) and we are done with the social stuff for a while, so here we are, back in the saddle and together on it for probably the first time. Strength in numbers!!! No man left behind!!! HooAhhh!! emoticon

emoticon #3 - mini-depression in the house emoticon With all the life changes, who wouldn't be? Add some Supermoon and PMS on top of that and you can only IMAGINE how pleasant I have been! emoticon Bad nutrition does play a part in this, so does lack of taking care of me and exercising....and emoticon this does not help, even socially, so it's time to straighten things out and get back to being the me I LIKE and LOVE instead of this icky drippy sad creature. Pity party is officially over. And besides bad nutritional value, licked wounds are not very tasty either.


That is bascially it...I have some work on ME to do today, and now that the house is in order, it's time for me to become as well.

As for's time to fuel this body, grab my bike and take a morning tour of the town!

Spark on Sparkfriends!!!

    Cheering for Annie back on the right track! Don't lose any sleep over anything! You've had fun, you've had your pity party (yes, that's part of life and we need it, too) and now it's time to get back to basics. (I'm quoting you here.) You know how to do this better than most of us. And you have all our support in doing it right!

    Have a great bike ride and enjoy your day. We all go through times when life simply gets in the way and we are too busy and stressed to focus on staying healthy. As you say, you know what to do! I am glad your husband is joining you!

You have got all your Spark Friends supporting you! I hope your official beginning of summer leads you to a great month! Hugs.
