Focusing on the positive
I came to the realization that there will always be problems no matter what, and some things are so out of my control, out of my hands, some I don't have a say so in them, so I need to concentrate on the good things that are happening.

Saturday... (wish I could come up with better titles)
I am dealing with a horrible anxiety attack. Trying to stay calmed and just breath, fortunately I have hit two birds with one stone. I went to eat breakfast with both my sisters and their kids, and then brought the nieces and nephews to my mom's... Read more
Usually weekends make me happy and cheerful but I've had a tough week. Thankfully I haven't derailed my eating and workout plan, at least that is something in my control at the moment.
On Tuesday my mom was told that both her kidneys are fa... Read more
I know it's been only a few days in, but a streak is a streak even if it's only been 4-5 days, so I am happy with that and hopefully I find the strength to continue at it. My eating has been around 75% on point and exercise has been a 90%! Give... Read more

I am so happy winter is almost over, and spring is just around the corner. With daylight savings it so hard to get back in schedule and I have drank more coffee than ever to try and adjust, but that is a habit I need to start kicking.

To a new path!

I have this song stuck in my head, and as I come out of what I call my "war zone" which was pretty much the days before and after Christmas, the song really resonates with me. It is a Christian song, and lately those are the songs that have brou... Read more
So I just started plan a a few weeks ago, but it looks like I need to start plan b. I had been working out a few days a week with my sparkbuddy, and the rest of the days on my own. Well she just told me that she just found out she is pregnant! I... Read more
Survived the weekend
It is a non scale victory for me!
I actually ate out twice this weekend yet stayed in check. It is such a sense of accomplishment after months of failing when it comes to the weekends. Many of raising their eyebrows and rolling their eyes ... Read more
cawling out of the dumps
Admitting failure and asking for help is a big step in this process, a necessary step in my opinion. I just realized that in the month of October I did nothing! No exercise at all. I am very disappointed at myself because even though I saw my we... Read more
Hit to the head
Literally that is what it took to make me realize I have been very bad with my body. I got a really bad cold mixed in with horrible allergies for the last four days, not to mention the high fevers, anyways, I went to the doctor and got the lectu... Read more
Dealing with the end of the year ( a very long one)
Two of my sparkbuddies are going through such tough times these days, and it makes me see my life in perspective. I love to dwell in my sadness and my unhappiness when all around me there are others far worse than I am. While I give out encourag... Read more
