Thank you, PattyKlaver, my (over) reactions are usually worse than that, so I'm getting better at this; my goal is to never over-react again. I appreciate your words of encouragement. I found a shiny rock on the patio table, the other day, think I'll put that in my pocket for the weekend.

Moomshine, I wish for you the best on your trip. It's hard to have to do things you don't want to do, especially at the last minute. I try to remember that I learn something with each adventure. Unfortunately, sometimes I learn that I don't want to do some things again. Your post reminds me that I really need to have a plan for those times where I am with others and stressed. I find that I start playing with my earrings, then I tend to lose a backing or a whole earring on occasion. I do have a shiny pebble in my purse. I should start keeping it in my pocket. Then I could play with that when I am stressed.

My grand-kitty and I are counting down. My youngest daughter, Sherry (who's Lulu's Mom) will be in on Monday. I haven't seen her since July. She won't be able to stay long and I want to make the best of every moment I have with her. So, I am off to do homework, housework and grocery shopping. I want to get some of her favorite foods in the house and I don't want to have to do housework when she's here.


God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I was having a great day until about fifteen minutes ago, and now I'm looking to a very stressful weekend. I'll be driving 240 miles to see my recently widowed brother, staying with strangers, eating other peoples cooking, and just being outside my comfort zone for 4 days. I usually don't allow these things to happen to me, but I want to see my brother, and there is no other way to do it.
My plan is to:
1. Keep tracking no matter what goes into my mouth
2. Find a way to get a minimum of 20 minutes walking every day
3. Maybe even sneak in some strength training (providing I can find some lone time)
4. Most importantly - practice stress reduction methods every day, and take frequent deep breaths.
5. Remember that none of this is worth raising my blood pressure over. emoticon

September and October have been stressful for me, too. I finally got involved in things that I wanted to get involved in and it's like life doesn't want me to do it. My mom's health has taken a nosedive and I've been spending a tremendous amount of time there. I just have to sit back and make yet another schedule for myself. By now, I'd think I'd be good at it. Finances are tight for me, too. Not sure how that happened, but it did. Another budget is in order, but when do I fit it in? Off to straighten house. We played musical furniture yesterday and things are far from being in order.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Hello everyone! Thank you, Cynthia, for getting this check in set up, and thank you to everyone who has been checking in to chat!

I've been deep in survival mode for awhile - balancing panic attacks, teaching, having a new middle schooler, coping with my dad's death this summer...I slid away from SP a bit. I didn't intend to, it was just "okay," internally, for it to take a back seat.

But my health has not been going well, so I need to tighten the reins on my exercise, eating and thought processes. That involves getting involved again here at SP. This team is one of my homes here, so I'm back and will really try to be more active. Time and energy will dictate of course, as do the two children and the husband...you get the idea!

This month sped by. With some of the recent changes at work (shifting from twice a month payroll to once a month) the panic has been severe. I've kept breathing through it - asking myself how I'd encourage YOU, someone on THIS board, to address the fears and pain rather than let the fear take over. It helped. I was able to be more kind to myself than I've been in similar situations in the past. That shows growth, and I have this team to thank for that.

So there's my late Oct check in! Thank you, again, to each of you reading this list, for being here and making a commitment and investment in yourself today. emoticon

I actually got a big of junk thrown out this morning. Got a bit more to do - we're playing musical furniture tomorrow. I have a convention to get to in the morning and then have someone come get me to help. It will b]definitely be a long couple days. But it's forcing me to clean out a bit.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Love flylady and am on team...just not on track in utilizing it. However, I do the 15 minutes timer thing and it's amazing what u can get done in a little time. I have to baby step it or I get very overwhelmed.

Well it's the weekend. Is anyone doing something fun? If nothing else I encourage y'all to do at least 1 thing you enjoy no matter how big or small. Relax!

Cynthia,
Have you ever been on the www.flylady.net website or the Flybabies Team on SP? I found it in the summer time and started doing really well doing a little bit at a time. She always says to grab a timer, set it for 15 minutes, and see how much you can get done. With my mom needing so much help getting organized lately, I've been a little lax in my place - time to get busy again with the holidays coming up.

Patty I never realized u live in Detroit! I am a born and raised MI girl who moved to SC 15 years ago. I lived in the Grand Blanc/ Burton area suburbs of Flint.

It's cooler here too; although we think 60 is cold....lol although I do think it got down into the 40's @ night. Brrrr. I have a miniature dachshund and he loves the cold other than wearing the sweater. He is a cutie. I too have a cat. Her name is Gabbie, and the name fits because she is quite vocal. My dog's name is Lucky. If you'd like to see thier pics you can check out my page.

Boy I am a clutter bug. I too need to be simplifiying. I had an organizer help me 3 times to get rid of stuff and organize only to have it a mess again. But I have gotten rid of ALOT during the past few years.

So is everyone having an okay week or better? I'm doing okay, just a bit anxious. I missed my boyfriend so badly that I took him back. I do love him; but I am not sure this was the right thing to do. I saw my therapist yesterday and she said that I worry too much about what people think about the situation. Probably so.

Well I'm going to finish my tea and get going with my day.I woke up really late today.

Blessings to all!

I love when my grand-kitty cuddles with me. She did a little this morning when the alarm went off. It beats her hitting me in the nose every time there's a beep!

I live in Detroit and the weather just now has turned colder. I was wearing hoodies last week but pulled out something heavier yesterday. Thank goodness I haven't seen any of that 4-letter word. I don't like winter. I want to go back down to Alabama for the winter!

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Oh yes I agree! A messy house gives me anxiety! I have OCD, and I've actually been cleaning the house bit by bit today. Even though I'm sick :(

My cat has been snuggling with me ALL day! How's THAT for making you feel better? The little cutie pie!

How are you all doing with the colder weather? It was snowing for about 3 hours yesterday. I'm about a two hours drive south of Canada. 3 hours south of Thunder Bay, Ontario. So we get a lot of colder weather xD Thank goodness I'm not in the Dakota's though! Just a neighboring state.

Time to reflect on what I'm doing, where I want to go. I need to organize my house: get it ready for the holidays, get the junk out, make my life simpler. When the house is cluttered or I have a lot to do, I get stressed easier. Time to stop the stress!

I'm lucky, I guess. My panic attacks don't happen often and I usually feel them coming on and either hide in my house or call one of my daughters.

Hey Moom! Don't feel bad about that hamburger! Tomorrow is another glorious day to get back on that bike! Or Horse. Or wagon. Whichever you prefer!

I want to know if any of you have ever done something you've regretted during a panic attack?

I have generalized panic disorder with agoraphobia. I'm on klonapin as needed, but usually mid panic attack I never want to take it. And I have some BAD habits during panic attacks at home.

I'm bipolar and I'm severely depressed when I'm not medicated for depression. Which happens to be now, since I ran out and the pharmacies in the fricken po dunk town aren't OPEN on weekends and you CANT refill an RX until the pharmacy is OPEN! I've just gotten enough money for my RX on friday and I've gone a week without my depression pills.

I just threw like 5 boxes of dates around the kitchen and fricken sliced my arm open with a steak knife and I REALLY regret doing that. I've been a cutter since I was 17. I'm 23 now. And it only seems to happen about once a year now. Make that twice this year :-/

I always feel such shame after I've done it. I never LIKE doing it. It doesn't feel good. It's not even fun. It hurts. I have no idea why I started. Well I do, but I don't know how I KNEW to do it, I mean. And now it's like an addiction. When I get mad, sad or have a panic attack the first thing I go for is either chocolate, ice cream or cutting.

I'm donating plasma on tuesday and I'm so worried what they'll say when they see my arm. It's not a lot, at least not by my standards. I just...feel so ashamed that I did it.

Been a while since I checked in. . .seems like I only do it when I'm in a rough patch. Can't put my finger on it - just feeling odd, panicky, blue.
Ate a whole hamburger for the first time in a long time - complete with fries. It was greasy, and not worth the calories. The fries were good, but I practically swallowed them whole.
Tomorrow is a new day. And as I understand, a new face for SP. I know that change is necessary for growth, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.

Working out in the mornings isn't a good thing for me either. From my fibro. Man, I found out if I work out in the AM I'll have a WORSE fibro day than if I ran a mile in the afternoon. My shoulderblades are the WORST with my fibro, and today they have been cramping all day. That's why I have to take weight training with the arms light :( No total gym today. Unless I get home from work, and I feel better. Chances are I WILL! ROFL! My co workers are AWESOME and if anyone with Fibro doesn't know this, you're emotional well being contributes to the pain! So if you're happy you're more likely to not notice it. Well at least that's how it goes with me.

I'm sorry your boyfriend broke up with you! *hugs* Take the dog for a walk for sure! Dogs are GREAT for making you feel better! I wish I had one xD

Kara~ I ate terribly yesterday myself. Let's start fresh today. And remember we can have things in moderation. What are you studying at school? Glad you will be able to work out soon. I've never been one to work out in the mornings much myself.

Good Morning Team!

Really sad, my ex boyfriend officially put an end to things. He gave back all my stuff he had borrowed and we exchanged keys. I feel sad, but know it's better to have the clean break rather than trying to be friends and our confusing feelings.

Yesterday I binged baaad. I'm feeling quite bloated today. I'm just going to move forward and make better choices today.

I have no plans for the day. It looks like rain. I heard it's supposed to clear up. If so I will be walking Lucky dog to the nearby park. emoticon Hoping the sun will shine.

How is everyone? Happy Saturday. Do something you enjoy!

I'm working lol. I work at the local grocery store. And by local I mean the only one in town. Which just happens to be the only one in a 25 mile radius as well. We get so many tourists! It's insane!

I had a pretty bad eating day today! I donated plasma so I stopped at taco johns on the way out of duluth (since I live 25 miles NORTH of Duluth and it's a 40-50 minute drive) I was going to go to McD's to get a salad but Taco Johns was seen BEFORE McD's and I used to work there so I was like "eh, no lets get tacos!" So then I got home, took a nap and then took my mom out to dinner with some of the money I got for donating plasma. Since we've not eaten out in ages. We went to culvers and I had a hamburger and a fries. We also split a small shake. Needless to say I'll be drinking plenty of water tonight to ensure I don't wake up with tons of water weight :(

How was all your guys' days?

Oh and my TOTAL GYM arrived today! I can't use it since I was told "No heavy lifting today" and I assume heavy lifting would include weight training! LOL! So I'll be working out AFTER work tomorrow! Since I work at 11am and I won't have any time BEFORE work unless I go to bed by 10pm. Eh, that's doable! I might do that! Do some homework for 2 hours and then go to sleep. Boy am I behind on my homework this week! Might work on the hard class first.

Hello and good Morning!

Happy to see a couple of new faces! emoticon Renee and Kara!

Not much happening here. Woke up feeling a little puny to my tummy. Getting a little better and hoping I can still meet with best friend for lunch.

This week has been okay. I did get in to see my p-Dr. and he did a med change to hopefully get me back to feeling baseline. The depression and anxiety have really getting to me along with the fibro pain. Today I woke up with fairly little pain so I am thrilled about that.

Patty~ Wish you could be with your girls too.

October goals hmmm my main goal was to love 3% of body weight before Halloween..that's about 5 lbs. Am close.

emoticon Kara jogging and getting so many miles in!

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend. Anyone doing something fun?

Hey guys! It's been a while that I've been on the message boards in Spark. Just as long since I've commented in a team. How is everyone doing lately? I'm checking in for october! lol.

I'm Kara by the way! October has been a GREAT month for me athletic wise! I've walked/jogged 9.48 miles so far this month. My initial goal was to walk 20 miles the first week but I kind of got really tired!

Today I actually JOGGED! I LOVED it so much I'm doing another 30 min run/jog tomorrow! My weigh in goals are 2 pounds a week, and that's on sunday. 292 is so close, but I have to be careful!

What are all of your guys' plans for October? I want to get to be able to jog 5 minute straight while walk / jogging!! That's my goal

I love having the house to myself... so peaceful and I can get stuff done if I want to, or just be lazy if I want to. I'm usually off on Mondays, so it's most often my favorite day of the week!

I have to work tomorrow, tho. :( My co-worker lost her father in law last week (he was 90) and it's sad... so I've got the office to myself for a few days. :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend and I wish you all a wonderful and calm week. :)

Aloha!

good day, team.

I hope to make mine better... but so far....

My daughter is home from college today, and already she and my younger daughter are arguing... which increases my anxiety levels. My son likes to play around by annoying me... like saying hi and I love you a million times... I love him, too.. but good grief, that makes me weary. up another couple notches on the scale. My house is a mess and I don't feel like doing anything... and I feel guilty about that... up another notch.... and all I'm doing right now is sitting on the couch. ugh...

Well, I need to get up and do something.

I'm still looking for the cleaning fairy. I think she's off somewhere goofing off. I'm still going to Mom's a little bit every other day or so trying to get her paperwork straightened. Meanwhile, mine is having babies. I did sleep in a little this morning - I think my body really needed it.

My oldest daughter is visiting my youngest daughter today through Monday morning. Wishing I was with them.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Good Morning! emoticon emoticon

Patty I need help with housework too. Lemme know if that cleaning fairy shows up.send her my way please. emoticon

Jazzy~ Did you have fun at the soccer game? Don't give up on your goal. emoticon But I agree that if it's getting in the way of you enjoying life then it's time to reexamine things and see what you can do to enjoy life and still stay on track.

MOOMSHINE~ Glad you had a great weekend. Here we are headed towards another one My how time flies.

How is everyone doing? How is your anxiety?

I'm doing okay, feeling more down that anxious. I am sad over the breakup with bf and I feel stuck in my sadness. It's a beautiful fall day here and I should be outside walking. Instead I'm just puttering around not getting much done. Dishes are piled up. Maybe I will attempt to get some done. Yesterday I met my best friend for lunch and really enjoyed our time together. This morning another dear friend called and that cheered me up some.

I hope everyone has a low anxiety and low stress day!

Blessings & emoticon Cynthia

I had lunch with my sister after my morning class. Then it was to the grocery store and get some housework done. Now it's homework time. Anyone want to help?

yesterday a true blessing. Rain so we just stayed indoors did odd and ends. Set plans for the week then by 9p.m. those plans changed in the blink of an eye
Is my life going to flow with what others want me to do? Today major computer problems, lost some more paper work. Have to go to soccer game starts at 5p.m. won't get home until 10p.m.
Yesterday I ate mold well finally spit out what I thought was ice to find out black mold. HOW?WHY? So nothing tastes good yesterday or today.
Atkins is still my game plan wanted to change on thurs but now fri,sat,sun, a monkey wrench in my plans
Maybe I should just stop and live instead of trying so hard for my goal. right now 151 want 139 maybe I just can't

Cardio and steps in over the weekend with company there - emoticon . I had church meeting all weekend and I am dragging today. My alarm went off and I stayed in bed for another 95 minutes. Must have needed it. I realized between last night and this morning that I am truly over-stressed and will spend the morning organizing the week better.

Dd and her family were here for the weekend, and we had a very nice time. The 2 gds are charming, SiL participated in a triathlon, and was too focused to annoy me, and dd treated me better than she has in years.
The weekend was not entirely stress-free, and over-ate by 1200 cals over the weekend, but did not eat all that I could have.
I still managed to average 30 min of cardio and 4k steps per day.
Excellent weekend! emoticon
I need to find an extra day this week for those extra cals. 8-)

It was a good day at church, but long. Time to walk the dog.

That is great Patty! I pray that you find that uplifting!

Not much happening here today. Lazy Saturday. I do plan to do devotions and a load of laundry. I'm also hoping to get in 3000 steps in. Fibro seems to finally be under control. I am grateful for that.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning!

Patty I'm sure you'll catch up.

So does anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend?

Still emoticon sitting at my sister's. Yesterday it was nice enough to go for a swim. Yeah my sister kept her pool open. Weird yet cool because in SC it's still hot some days.

Today I might have lunch with a friend. Tomorrow and Sunday are pretty much open.

Anxiety is a okay for most part.

Happy Friday!

Not busy?? yeah right! I consider you very busy.

Well right now I am in the country watching the dogs. If the water is warm enough I might go splash in the pool. We shall see. If nothing else I will sit in the sunroom and read.

How is everyone doing? Hope y'all check in soon.

I do have two sisters and a brother. One of the sisters and the brother work full time. The other sister is retired and a bit ditzy - for lack of a better word. I can't count on her. I was at Mom's twice last week. Big sister said she'd be there, but would call at the last minute and cancel. She's also a good one for saying "Get Patty - she's not doing anything." She doesn't consider being Senior Warden at church and a reader and a greeter and a visitation minister and someone that takes two classes and sells Avon as someone that's busy.

Patty~ Hope you can slow down before it gets too late tonight. Do you have anyone to help you with your mom? I'm glad you still have her here. It is good of you to help her; so many people don't. Won't get on a soap box I promise. LOL

I need to get packed as it's almost 9:30. I will be staying at my sister's house the rest of the week taking care of her dogs while she goes on vacation. This will be somewhat of a vacation for me because my building gets on my nerves and she lives in the country where it will be quiet. I will be coming back one day to get my laundry so I can get it done there.

Have a great night!

September was definitely a blur. I am hoping October will settle down, but it probably won't. I am getting ready to go help Mom with bills. I have a feeling that I will be helping her more and more. She will be 83 on the 4th and is slowing down. But, for all she did for me, it's the least I can do.
