I'm getting there

Friday, December 07, 2012

So with the holiday season just around the corner, I'm working on my Christmas plans. I have booked off from Dec 21-Jan 6 inclusive, and I'm leaving myself the option to come back to work early if I get shack-whacky.

I've thought about skipping Christmas this year, but I like the holiday and its spirit too much to forgo that this year.

As for food, well, the appetite is back. Dammit. I'm still not able to work out more than 30 mins per session, but I'm working on that in the new year. I'm trying to keep a small amount of food in the fridge and cupboards, but there's still a lot of My Guy's junk food in the cupboards. Some of them I can eat, most I don't want to. I'm working on giving some of those foods to the people around me who are in dire straights for groceries, but they will only accept so much from me right now.

I'm also trying not to be so busy at this time of year that I don't have any quiet time for myself. It's a hard thing to juggle.

But I'll get there.

I miss you, Sweet Heart. Every day.

    Chere Jo: Je suis d'accord avec NancySinatra - si l'alimentation ne vous sert, elle n'a pas de place chez vous. C'est pas necessaire de la donner a quelqu'un.

    Je suis tres friere de ton esprit, ta motivation... Tu cherches pour la lune et les etoiles, et la richesse de la terre y arrive.

    Bonne chance, Jo --- Joyeux Noel.

    Yeah go visit Nancy, then have a after Christmas visit to Portland and I can meet you all for Lunch. : )
    It's great to see that you are making plans for the holiday. It is such a great season to spend with friends and family.
    You are a motivation to all of us.

    Bonjour, Jo

    Ça fait plaisir d'avoir de tes nouvelles. Tu sembles vraiment sage dans tes décisions. Tu fais ce que tu dois pour passer au travers. Tellement courageuse... je t'admire.

    Toute mon affection,

    Since you have so much time off, maybe you should come visit me. :) I'm sure we'd find some trouble to get into together.
    Jo, throw the food out!!! I know how hard that can be, but I have also found when I start looking for comfort in food, it's amazing how all of a sudden I like things I've never liked before. And of course I'm not talking broccoli and cauliflower, I'm talking chocolate and cake. So if you can't give it away, throw it out. Get it out of the house. You have been so strong and, like Mo said, AMAZING, but why have the temptation there.
    Love ya!!!

    Jo...I so love YOUR spirit!!! You're so calm & rational & amazing. I know...I use that word a lot, but in this case I really believe it's true. As the last poster said...the holidays can be hard in the BEST of times. But you're moving forward & going to have your own Christmas after what can surely be called the worst of times.

    You're a Survivor in the best sense of the word. Stay strong & always be gentle with yourself! You deserve the best!!!
