I will have my sweet grandson all to myself for a few hours. I usually don't get to share him when Papaw his home, because he doesn't get to see him except on the weekend. I am so proud of my workouts this week. I know it's low intensity, but I have logged 6 miles which for my starting week is awes... Fri, 14 Aug 2015 10:00:01 EST A Small Speed Bump <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Today has been such a better today for me. Yesterday was horrible. I woke up so down and blue it was just awful. I am so thankful that my son and husband were both at work, so that I wouldn't make them feel bad. I don't like my down days to effect others. I try so hard to be positive. <BR> <BR> My husband's birthday was Sunday and I tried so hard to eat healthy. I was still sic... Wed, 12 Aug 2015 18:23:48 EST Saturday Blessings <img src=""> <BR> <BR> This has been such a peaceful day. I love these days. I cherish these days. My husband is off today because we are celebrating his birthday tomorrow. They didn't ask him to work because they knew he was going to be having a BBQ with me and the kids. It was so nice sleeping in with him, then getting up and walking my 2 miles. I done better than I thought I would walking the 2 miles in t... Sat, 8 Aug 2015 14:53:38 EST A Good Day <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I'm trying to get more time for myself to sit down and just stay accountable. I have done really great with my eating over the past 3 days. I've not felt the need to emotional eat, which is a positive thing for me. The BBQ with my dad went fairly well, although the tension between him and my husband was so hard. I've gone about 2 times since then to visit, and even though he has lashed o... Tue, 4 Aug 2015 20:58:38 EST Happy 4th Of July :) <img src=""> <BR> <BR> It's been a very busy and very blessed day. My daughter, son in law, and two year old grandson came over for a BBQ. My 21 year old son lives with us so he was here as well. It was very nice and peaceful. I enjoyed having my family with me and spending quality time together. These days are more precious to me than words could ever express. <BR> <BR> My dad came over (which totally surpr... Sat, 4 Jul 2015 20:53:13 EST A Bright Day <img src=""> <BR> <BR> It is a dark and dreary morning here in southern Tennessee. Usually when it's like this I struggle with my mood. Today I'm feeling very strong in the Lord. We are still 4 days from my husband going back to work, and the life worries are still there, yet I have peace. I have peace in knowing that I have the hand that formed the universe and set every star into it's place holding mine. I ... Wed, 1 Jul 2015 11:35:12 EST I Can Do This... <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I have been off from work almost a month now, and slowly I am starting to feel better emotionally. I have been having less and less anxiety attacks, although when I do have one they are a bit more intense. I'm just so thankful that the frequency of them has been decreasing. My husband finally got a new job. He is taking quite a big pay cut, but with our debit as low as it is, if we can s... Mon, 29 Jun 2015 18:27:54 EST Needing To Let Go <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I know it's been a month since I have written, and it feels like this month has just been a few moments, yet not a whole lot has changed. My husband did go to work at that job, but it didn't last but a couple of weeks. He is waiting now on a call from another job, and it feels like it is taking forever for him to go back to work. I'm just a couple weeks away from my job closing, and I'm j... Sat, 16 May 2015 12:07:19 EST A New Beginning <img src=""> <BR> <BR> This morning when I woke up, I made the conscious decision to stop allowing food to be my comfort, and allow God to fix what is still broken in me to keep me from turning to food to find ease. This year started out really bad for me and my family. My husband lost his job. My daughter finally moved out with her husband and son, but the repercussions of her living with us and quitting collage, along with my h... Sun, 12 Apr 2015 17:10:55 EST
