It's after 3:30 and I still haven't had lunch! I'm going to leave, at my normal time, run work errands. Then, I'll grab some dinner and come back to work for a little while. I'm on such a roll, with this project that my boss wants done (and that the helper is screwing up BIG TIME), that I'd like to come back and get more of it done.

I don't think what you've had is bad and think that you've done a good job with your eating today! I've had a HUGE danish and about 1/2 a BIG bag of Cheetos. It's lunchtime, I'm hungry and really should get something to eat, but I don't know what I'm really hungry for. I could go for tacos, a burger, a salad, some pasta.........

I know what you mean! I didn't eat anything, yesterday, until dinner time and then I pigged out. Of course, today I'm still hungry and could eat EVERYTHING in site. When I stopped at the grocery store, it was hard NOT to stick to just getting what I needed for work (fruit and coffee) because I wanted to buy LOTS of junk food.

Hi,

Today is a new day and we'll both do a better job of making better food choices!

I felt good, after my massage, but everything has tightened back up and I'm back to being in pain. UGH.

Have a good day.

Happy Sunday.

I think this is going to be a lazy day for me. I'm going to fold my laundry and spend the rest of the day, sitting on the couch, reading a book.

Have a good day.

Hi,

I need to get rid of ALL junk food from my diet because I'm ALWAYS cranky. I also feel better when I don't drink coffee.

I've gotten my workout in, had a massage and am getting ready to go to a baby shower.

Good Morning
Thanks for info about coffee. I don't user creamer much at all but am still using regular sugar. I just have not found an artificial sweetener that I like. My daughter uses truvia I think it's called. I have got to cut down on the sugar in my diet as well. It's hard! Hope you have a good weekend.

I do drink coffee and use creamer and Splenda (one packet) in it.

I need to come up with a plan to get rid of ALL sugar from my diet. When I don't eat it, I feel really good. When I eat it, I am not a very nice person to be around and could sleep the day away.

Enjoy your Celebrate Recovery meeting.

Great article on fit eating.

And no we did not walk but should have. I love Fridays! We have Celebrate Recovery on Fridays. I am much looking forward to it. Do you drink coffee? Do you use an artificial sweetener?

PS: have had 32 oz of water

Good Morning,

How are you doing today? Did you go for a walk?

The only thing that I am looking forward to, today, is that I'm meeting a friend for dinner. Now, how can I fast forward the clock to make it time to meet?!

Have a good day.

Leah,

Your writing was just fine! I'm tired, cranky and just misread it. My niece decided that she isn't going to Chicago (for the weekend), so she's not spending the night at my house. So, we didn't go get our nails done and she cried the whole way home. My head is throbbing, I'm exhausted and SUPER CRANKY.

Have a good night!

Oh hun I completely understand well , guess not completely cause i'm not working but that is stressful in itself because in Feb there will be no more alimony.

Oh a happier note I got all my protein in today and did not go over calories.

no did not go to beach, Em has been at beach, they just got home, i see my typing was unclear. lol

You're doing great on the water! Have fun at the beach with Emory!

I tried to get a consolidation loan (to try to get my payments at a more manageable rate) and have been turned down. It's a good thing that my co-worker went home because I'm crying. I'm so tired of working my butt off making sure that my payments are made on time in and in the right amount AND not being able to get any help when I need it. UGH.

Vent over.

Enjoy your day with Emory!

Michele you are doing great with water! It's 1:17 and I've had 48 oz , that's not bad. Doing really well with eating today too. Life is good :) Emory is coming over to visit, I am excited that have been at the beach since last Saturday so Grandma is in withdrawals!

Hi Leah,

I'm also not doing well on my eating. Monday was a bad day at work. So, what did I do? I stopped at the store, bought a pint of ice cream and ate the whole thing in one sitting. UGH.

Starting today, I am BOSS FREE and I am going to try really hard to get LOTS of work done.

Have a good day.

Michele

Hi Ladies,
So it turns out that I was pregnant. I say WAS, because I had another miscarriage, this one was number 3.
I have been sent to a specialist. I have to get a special kind of ultrasound done, and then he will be calling me to meet for a second appointment to make sure that there is nothing seriously wrong.
I feel defeated, and deflated right now. I'm not sad or heartbroken because it was a very early term pregnancy, but I just feel like I keep getting dealt the short end of the stick. But then I keep thinking that my best friend is dying from cancer, and that helps me remember that my life isn't that bad.
I hope you ladies are doing OK, and great job on all the water!!!!

Hey ladies, I feel like I apologize for not being here alot more than I am actually here. One more time though I am motivated and ready to do this. Health issues are a huge priority now so maybe I really am committed to the SP program. Hope you both are having a great weekend.

Good Morning.

I am not feeling great today. Woke up at 3 a.m. with a headache, stomach pain and have been light headed/dizzy (some would say this was normal for me!) all day.

I hope you both have a great day and weekend.

Hi Ladies!
I ended up in the hospital again, so that is why I have been MIA. Hopefully they will be able to figure out why I have been fainting at work, and at home. It's getting pretty scary.
I am on a restriction at work to do not be up on a ladder, or do any heavy lifting.
There is a chance I could be expecting, so I have a doctors appointment on Monday to see if I am. I am not getting excited this time, because of what happened last time.
I hope you are well, I miss "talking" to you every day!
Hugs, Amanda

Way to go, Leah!! I'm down 100 oz and will met my goal for the day!!

Work day could be better. I have so much work to do, that I'm feeling overwhelmed and that is making me not want to do anything.

I'm sure you met our goal. I'm a bit ocd about tracking when I set my mind to something, well the water anyways, I sure cannot bring myself to track food like I used to though.

That sucks. You have a great attitude and I'm sure you'll find something soon!

Crap. I've lost track of how many bottles of water I've had today. UGH. I know that I'm close to the 128 ounces, but I have no idea how close I really am. Oh well... I'll just have to do a better job of tracking tomorrow.

I am so sorry hun , I do relate to the strapped financial situation. I went to apply for job today at school cafeteria and lady looks at my app and tells me bluntly they won't hire me cause of my dui convictions. Life is hard. I really am not upset, God's got this. I am gonna find a job, he's brought me to far to let me fall now.

I need 64 more ounces of water to meet goal. emoticon

My depression meds went from $10 (with a co-pay) per month to OVER $200. I live paycheck-to-paycheck and don't have the money to keep using them. After this month, I will no longer be able to attend therapy sessions because they went from $25 per session to $117!

All of this because I had to get new insurance under Obamacare.

Thanks much, I hope they help too. Meds from doc are short term, just some stuff for the swelling and some for the nerve pain all total were $28. I have no insurance and can't afford it , Obama care wants $275 a month and my income is only $800 so there ya go.

I stopped taking all of my Doctor issued medications because I can't afford to refill them (new insurance = crappy coverage and LOTS more out of pocket expense for me). So, I'm just taking the supplements that my chiropractor gave to me to get rid of my headaches. I'm also taking Vitamin(s) C and D.

I hope all of your meds/supplements work for you!

Well it's a long story, but I'm feeling a bit on supplement overload, lol, so I get that. It took the whole 16 oz bottle of water for me to get all the vitamins down plus new meds from doc, I had to go there Tuesday. I have a pinched nerve in elbow and some edema or something in ankles so am on script meds and some supplements that buddy suggested for my arthritis and swelling plus my daily multi vitamins and b complex , it's craziness, I sure hope some of this pile of pills helps.

This morning, I woke up thirsty and just started drinking water. Even after having 32 oz of water, I'm still thirsty. Plus, I had to take some supplements and the only way I can get them down is to drink LOTS of water.

Yes, I'm still at the same job. My boss has decided that she wants ALL of our files put in to electronic format, so I am doing that AND trying to get my other work done. I'm stressed out!

I'd really like it if we could keep each other on track. I do much better when I have somebody keeping me accountable!

Are you done with school?

Thanks about my chip. I am seriously thankful to God every single day for my sobriety and for so much more as well.

Well maybe we can really support each other. I am gonna need something to keep me on track. Junk food is a serious issue for me as well.

I am so proud of you for getting your 6 month chip for sobriety! As for the weight, you'll lose it and more!!

Work is really busy. I'm still working out, eating too much junk food and not drinking enough water. So, things haven't really changed!

Michele,
Well , I weigh 192 pounds which is the most I've weighed since my 40th birthday which was 11 years ago so I'm a bit pissed off there. LOL But the good news is on July 4th I got my 6 months Celebrate Recovery chip for sobriety. That's a great thing. Had to go to the doc yesterday, seems I have edemia or something in feet and ankles, basically means am retaining water in a humongous way. LOL Got meds to help with that, oh also being fat causes it, or might , who knows. Numbness and tingling in outside two fingers on right hand , doc diagnoses that as a pinched nerve in elbow so am wearing an elastic deal on elbow so I won't bend it and prob on stuff with it. I think it may have been from too much Farmville II. LOL

How are things with you?

I'm still working on fixing the mess that my summer helper created. NOT a happy camper right now!

Oh...and I'm ready to have this weekend over with! It's River Falls Days (4 day event where you have a LOT of drunk people, lots of traffic, no place to park and things like that) for my hometown and I'm ready for it to be over with!!

Amanda,

I'm so happy for you! Keeping fingers crossed!!

They need to FIRE the summer helper OR give me a HUGE raise for having to redo EVERYTHING that she's done (and I mean EVERYTHING).

This is going to be short because I'm cranky, have a lot of work to do and just don't want to spread my mood.

Have a great day/weekend.

Michele

It sounds like your little helper needs to be put in a locked room with the key thrown away!
I am doing OK this week, I got a call for an interview for one of the joins I applied for, we will see how that goes.
I am putting around the house tonight, and then when DH gets home from work I may try and talk him into going for ice cream.. Depends on the mood he is in.
Big news, fingers crossed I may be pregnant! I've had some light spotting, but apparently that can be something called implantation bleeding, so we will see if its just my body being weird, or if something is actually happening.
Talk soon.

Hi Amanda,

How are you doing? I'm stressed out, overwhelmed and have been crying (A LOT). My "little helper" isn't doing what she should be doing and because of this, I now have even MORE work to do. I have to go back and double check (her work) to make sure that she has made a copy of EVERY document that was in the files she put into electronic format.

Have a good day.

Hi Amanda,

Oh, I really like that idea!!

I'm just getting home from watching my niece play in a softball tournament today. I have a really nice sunburn. UGH.

Now, I'm going to go do my laundry, clean my house, grab some dinner and go to bed. Tomorrow morning, I am meeting a friend - at 7 a.m. - to go for a 3 mile walk. Then, I think I'm going with my Dad to a family reunion.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Michelle,
I think we should put your boss and one of my managers in a room, and lock them up, throw away the key! I left my job SO MAD today, I cried all the way home, and I may have eaten three chocolate bars yesterday.
I am so done, and I really hope that something brightens up for both of us. Have a good weekend.

Hi Amanda,

I'm sorry that you were in the hospital. I hope you're feeling better now! I know how much you want a baby, so I'll keep sending positive thoughts and vibes your way!

Um... I'm not a fan of crowds, so I think I would be avoiding your city this weekend!

I either need to win the lottery or find a sugar daddy cuz I'm over this work 50+ hours a week stuff. AND this has been a terrible work week for me. My boss keeps changing her mind, on a project that she brought in summer help for, and it's creating even MORE work for me to do. I'm stressed out, have had a headache EVERY DAY and have also left in tears.

Have a great day and weekend!

Michele

Hi Michelle,
I spent part of this week in the hospital. Severe dehydration combined with a viral infection. So that was pretty scary. I was back at work today, and oh my gosh that was frustrating., my city is right in the middle of Countryfest. A huge festival where big name country stars come in and play, people camp there all weekend and lots of drinking happens. The festival doubles our population for four days, it puts a lot of strain on the retail people.
I am not back on track yet, and I am really struggling. There is a chance I may be pregnant, but it is still too early to tell yet. I have to wait a couple more weeks before I can take a test. I at least want to wait until when my next cycle is supposed to show up. We shall see, fingers crossed.

If you need a change of scenery, come on up, we are always hiring..lol.

Hi!

For the month of June (and we're only on the 19th!!), we've had over 10 inches of rain AND it's still raining today. Tomorrow, it should clear up and the sun (fingers crossed) should come out. All I know is that this crappy weather is NOT helping my depression OR mood.

I have faith (in you) that you'll get back on track and lose those 11 lbs + more! It's hard to do, but we BOTH will do it!

My "helper" is getting to me. I told her, again today, that she had to be careful and make sure that EVERYTHING gets put into PDF format. Again, she's doing it how she wants to and NOT everything is getting done. I'm so frustrated and really close to tears. Yes, I did mention this to my boss and she just doesn't seem to care. So, this is another project that I need to figure out how to deal with. UGH.

Now that I've written a novel, I better get back to work. Have a good day and I'll "talk" to you later.

Hi!
I am doing Okay this week, I am up almost 11 pounds, and am really struggling with trying to get on track. I am frustrated with myself.
I work today at 1pm so I am vegetating in the house until I have to leave for work.
We have gotten SO much rain the last few weeks, all of my plants are starting to turn yellow around the edges because they are too wet. We are also dealing with Tent Caterpillars, they come into a community and destroy all of the broad leafed vegetation. So all of the trees in the city have been totally shredded. Look them up on youtube, they're gross :-(

I am glad your session went OK, and I agree with your therapist, just keep re affirming to your helper how you want things done, and hopefully that will take some of the stress away from you.
Big hugs,
Amanda

Hi Amanda,

My session was okay, I guess. We just talked about work and tried to come up with some ideas on how to cope (until my summer helper is gone). The only thing she came up with is... I need to talk to my "little helper" and show her (again) how I want things done. That way, it takes some of the stress off of me and I'll deal with things better.

At least you're on track! I'm still NOT back on the wagon.

Have a good day.

Michele
