My glass is 1/8 full... my not so inspiring blog of the week :(

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

My weigh in yesterday showed a 1 lb loss. I had hoped to see more of my holiday bloat come off this week but being sick over the weekend and spending more time on my butt than doing anything I'm sure didn't help :) Good thing I'm back to 100% now!

I don't know what to say today. I'm entirely overwhelmed by life right now to where I wish I could look at it and say the glass is half empty... instead unfortunately the most sunshiny perspective I can come up with is to say the glass is 1/8 full...

Money problems are piling up in both personal finances and business and they are about to swallow us whole if we can't get something to give but I'm getting minimal cooperation at home or in business from the other people involved. Its like they are wearing blinders and just can't/won't see what a scary position we are sitting in that could be corrected through a few simple changes NOW but if we wait it will be too late! My sister-in-law has been diagnosed with cancer which they are preparing to treat very aggressively as well as my mother and husband having some continued health issues that keep sending up warning flags that they are worsening... No one is helping out around the house or farm hardly right now and I hate feeling like I have to play mom to 2 grown adults as well as my child yet I cannot stand to live in their filth any longer. So many of the things they let slide are so obviously signals to their own depressions yet neither will admit to having troubles...

Ugg! Enough already or I'll have aggravated myself before my day officially even begins!

On the positive side of life...

Everyone making me nuts and not feeling well meant that I retreated to my room for some alone time on Sunday and took the time to pluck eyebrows, do a facial of sorts, mini mani and pedi. Hubby has finally started to try some of my healthy foods/drinks and has realized that maybe their was a reason I would spend a little more on certain "treats" so I'll no longer have to deal with getting the stink face when we are at the store and I put a $6 bottle of Bolthouse drinks in the cart :) The kiddo went back to school yesterday and actually came home happy, cheerful and motivated which was a real plus as I fully anticipated a grouch getting off the bus.

Looking at the balance between my positive and negatives of the past week (plus the things I didn't bother to type here) its very defined that the negatives are far outweighing the positives and I wonder what I can do to shift my life more onto the positive side?

    Maybe spending the few extra bucks on healthy things will be worth it since your husband is into them! I don't know what health issues he has, but it should help to have a better diet at least. Whenever my husband-to-be catches me slipping into depression because of financial matters or work or whatever, he makes me look into his eye and tells me, "There's always options. Whatever happens, we'll be together. We'll make this work." It does wonders. I don't really remember the last time I've been severely depressed. Mostly due to having good sleep, working out, and gradual becoming more positive each day. And when they say optimism is contagious, it's true!
