November is right around the corner!

Monday, October 28, 2013

I have no words of wisdom, no words at all for that matter.
It's been 13 days without my voice. I'm on antibiotic and prednisone, hoping for a referral to the ENT this week.
Never mind the parenting 3 children, working full time(facilitating teams) and all of life's necessary commincating that needs to happen. It started out bad, then I lost it completely. Now it's starting to come back, but now I have a sore throat? Wha? I don't get it. That's why I'm hoping they can get me in with the ENT.
SO...did I mention it's quite hysterical to parent the kids. They are getting used to my "Pssssst" and "SHHHHHT" and "PsPsPsPsPs" noises...between that and hand gestures they are behaving nicely. It's a blessing really.
My 2 year old says..."no talk mommy?" as she rubs my back. I love my kids.
So that's where I get back to getting on this train.
I need to, I want to....I'm happier when I do. So I got back onthe train today. I feel good(other than the sore throat). I know what to do...so I'm going to go do it....
Its about feeling good about yourself. I don't, and haven't for a bit. It's not that I feel bad about myself, I just haven't thought much about myself. Happens to all of us I'm sure.
SO, with that, I'm back in the game.
I could use any encouragement. Any and all friend welcome.
I find I do much better when I'm cheering others and others are cheering me on!

    I can't believe your voice is STILL gone, that's a LONG time without being able to yell at the kids, lol! I'm glad they're behaving or you, that's great. I'm REALLY glad that you're ready to get back to business, that's even better! You know I'm always here for you, and I will encourage and support you in whatever you want to do. xoxo

    still no voice?? well I'd say is the perfect time to get back at it. Workout out hard and be sure to scream & yell about how awful it is. You'll get it all out & won't disturb anyone ;-)

    on a serious note- hope you get your voice back soon!

    Hello my friend!

    Glad it's starting to be better for your voice!!

    A mum is always putting the others first in the family, but everyone depends so much on you....I hope you can focus more on your needs and your personal happiness and find a balance, so the whole family will benefit of it too.

    I had a hard time before the Summer to get back on the horse and be more focused on my diet, and my weight loss goal. Since August I've been back on track and I do see a difference. I know that when I was stuck it was not easy contemplating my failure each day.

    Today after two months of tracking non stop, and losing little by little, I feel much better because I'm not stuck anymore, even if "my goal" is still far away, and not easy to reach. At least I'm doing something about it, and that's the big difference...
    I'm sending you some of my energy so you can get back on the horse too!!
