I feel like I haven't blogged in forever!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Oh well, it's only been a week or so....

I did decide to go "hiking" that one day...although I don't think what I did was actually hiking....I maybe made it in the woods a quarter mile til I found a spot to sit in the sun and just thought/read on my own in the peace and was quite relaxing though...

I think I'm actually afraid of hiking...there are no real trails..just paths people took and those stop a few hundred yards into the woods...I'm terribly afraid of getting lost in the woods, I always have been

I am supposed to go to a different park one of these weeks to meet up with a different friend, so maybe the trails will be better marked...who knows...

Hmm...what else...

It's been the official year since I've seen my nutritionist! I was going to include weights and measurements, but I forgot to take them, so I'll wait til my meeting in july to post my year changes...

There're is still some stress in my sister and family has moved up here...which is fine...except they come over daily and get mad at the way we do things, or we go to their house and they get mad at what we do...there is no pleasing them... I did get to watch munchkin most of yesterday, of course he napped and napped and napped and it was too hot and humid to play outside, but we had some fun inside at least...

The problem with that is she is just at the beginning of her weight loss journey..she runs every once in a while...she wants to start going to the gym....I'm so torn on her doing this...she wants to do zumba with me...she can't zumba and she knows that too...but zumba is my's with my zumba friends (ones I met specifically in zumba) and I've learned not to be embarrassed in front of and they actually push me to go harder....sometimes my sister holds me back...I'm not trying to be mean, she just does....I'm very torn on if I want her to join the's my's my space where I can go be me without consequences, by myself, alone to think...I think I'm so worried because that is what she is taking away from me......again, that is just plain me, but, it's the truth...


I have been finding myself tired at random intervals throughout the day...the one day I went running in the am and fell asleep when I layed down on the couch before day it was after day I didn't even work out and I still fell asleep..I don't always sleep, if I get up and moving and go somewhere or do something, I'm usually fine...yesterday, munchkin was up from his nap but kinda cuddly, so I was holding a pillow behind his back to help him sit on the arm of the couch...well the nice aunt that I am put my head down because he still couldn't reach the pillow, so he just rested back on me....I started dozing..of course I woke up to every sound he mumbled or flinch of a muscle...finally he wanted to get down, so off he went, he was over finishing up lunch...somehow I fell back wasn't more than a few minutes, he had his lunch all over the couch in true munchkin-style but nothing else had happened....

It has to be that i am not getting enough sleep at night...there is no way I would ever fall asleep watching my nephew when he is awake on purpose...I go to bed around ten ten thirty..some nights it's closer to eleven before I fall asleep tough...I usually wake up around seven ish with no alarm clock....I don't know...guess I will just have to try to text more sleep at night..

Well I am off to attempt something productive for the is to nothing.,,

    I totally understand about wanting your zumba class to be yours! I like BIGBEAR's suggestion, find a spin class or an extra activity that can be yours and your sister's together and see how that goes. And yay for spending time with your nephew! As for the extra sleeping... perhaps you are tired, perhaps it's the change in the weather. Whenever it gets really hot, the air quality usually is pretty bad, too, and it can make you feel extra tired.

    It is nice your getting to spend time with munchkin!! I understand how you feel about your sister and the gym. I often feel that way about some things. It is hard to let family and close friends into some of your own things , places and routines. Prehapes find an extra activity that can be just your sisters and yours. Aspecial walking route or a spin class. Just a thought.

    She isn't taking it from you -- you'd be giving it to her, if you let that bother you. Let her see you in your element. It might be eye-opening for her and help her see you in a new light. Own that gym!! : )
