HALLOWEEN "SAMHAIN" PIX!
Monday, October 17, 2011
I've added a few more pictures to my Samhain photo album. These are of the decor in my home, mainly the bathrooms. I have one or two more pix I'll post at another time.
I have a question for you, why is it, just before bed, I seem to get motivated to get my housework done? I putter around during the day and don't accomplish very much. Today I stripped my bed, got 3 loads of clothes, washed, hung-out, taken in, folded & put away, got my bed made with nice clean outdoor smelling sheets, got one bedroom window washed, my dishes washed dried & put away and I went through a couple of bags of my Mom's & my papers, but THAT'S it. Not good at all. Now it's time for bed and I'm raring to go. Something is screwy!
As for how I've been doing with my eating (eh) and exercising (nope). I really haven't been doing what I should with either of those most important things. Well. I shouldn't say that, I haven't been TRACKING my food, but I've still been trying to watch my intake. I haven't been doing as well as I should be; however, I'm not going to be TOO hard on myself, because it could be ALOT worse. I've gained back 1.6 pounds which really isn't very much, BUT, I should NOT be gaining ANYTHING back.
As for my exercise regime it has been non-existent for sometime now. Do you remember how I bought the wii fitness thingy? Well, I' haven't even set it up yet. Bad Ruby!
Okay, I've vented and I've beaten myself up, A LITTLE, so now it's time to get up off the pity potty and get back to doing what I KNOW is good for me.
As I keep telling everyone else, FOCUS and NEVER give up, as long as I keep getting back on that horse, or bicycle, I'm alright, SOOOO, here I go again!! I am placing one foot in front of the other as I walk my way to..... Well, you get the idea.
How have you been doing?

Well, it's WAY too easy to fall off this wagon in the midst of living, isn't it? Being the yo-yo-er that I am, I can't say a word about that one, since I've tumbled off the wagon for a bit here, too. C'est la vie, just is what it is, sometimes ya gotta concentrate on other things for a bit. I've never gotten into the Halloween stuff, even when the kids were small, not sure why that is. ?? It's my daughter's favorite season, tho. As for the second wind at night, well.....I've always been the exact same way, which is why I've been a third shifter all my life. I'll drag all day during daylight hours, the moment that sun sets, that second wind comes along and I can go all night, so I finally just decided to work with it and switch to thirds, so I generally stay up all night even on my nights off unless I've gone too many days with too little sleep, in which case I'll crash and burn for a couple of days.

The first this is admitting you aren't doing it. The second is having no guilt about it cause guilt slows you down. And the third is getting back to basics. tracking food and giving yourself 10 minutes each day even if you don't want to do it. My 10 usually becomes 30 but if I didn't make myself do the 10, well....
Anyway, that's my way of keeping forward momentum.
I'm off to see pictures!

It's always an experience to read your blogs Ruby. Love your background pic for Halloween. We don't seem to do Halloween in Australia, although the shop try to push it. Must be something to do with being a young country, lots of light and not so many ghosties to speak of.

I've been doing so-so with a few hiccups here and there. But I can wrap my mind around the idea that the choice is mine and I have to live with it. HUGS!

Well Ruby at least you have your mind in the right place and that means you KNOW what you need to do. I'm in the same boat as you, I gained 2 pounds and I'm working on a new plan this week. Good Luck to you my friend, I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT !!!
Our team is great and we are here for each other so just stay positive.

I enjoyed reading this blog entry. I am falling on and off the wagon so to speak.... one day doing well, another not. I wish I could get energy at any time lately LOL.
I laughed re the Wii .... I have one, whilst although set up, the grand kids mostly use it for games... naughty Sandy... LOL
I have done nothing but some washing today.... although I am recovering from a cold/sinus or hayfever... which has been plagueing me for the last 3 days. Feel better this afternoon (here in Australia) and will go back to work tomorrow. I must say the rest, and checking out the spark pages, has been great the last few days. I even watched Mama Mia on DVD yesterday.
Maybe we can support each other LOL
