A few things...Do you ever have days like this???

Sunday, July 07, 2013

emoticon Hello!
I hope you all had a great holiday, filled with family, friends, and happiness!

I have been off work for 10 DAYS!!! The Company shuts down this time of year.I go back Monday morning emoticon
Do you ever think of all the great things you are gonna get done during your time off??? Then you soon realize you only did a couple of those much needed chores??? Well that is me.
That is ok. I have been able to spend time with my son, and that is what matters most. The stuffed closets can wait til another day.

emoticon Ok, so on my weigh in day I was SUPER emoticon EXCITED!!! I lost 3 lbs.!!!
not only that, but people have been complementing me on my weight loss...People who didn't even know I was trying. That is a SUPER MOTIVATOR...Which should help me STAY motivated...Right? emoticon
Well during this time off work my eating has been horrible emoticon
When I say horrible, I mean emoticon emoticon emoticon I just can't seem to get satisfied.
When this happens I feel horrible.I know this is a lifestyle change, but HOW do you allow yourself just one cookie, or one piece of pizza??? Because its like I CRAVE it like a crazy person. Now I'm serious.
I know people say...just ONE will not hurt you...You don't have to eat the WHOLE pie...
Well I'm sorry but this fat girl here goes into "I MUST HAVE IT MODE".I will not stop thinking about it until its GONE...Meaning until I have eaten it.
Has anyone ever been through such intense stages in there journey? I'm sure many of you have...But what do YOU do?

I go through weeks/months with "some" cravings, but I do pretty good "Thank GOD".
But then this hits, and I'm off track,,,
Could it be hormonal...or just part of the journey??? emoticon


Question for you students... I'm applying for college. How do you know what you wanna be?
I have a job, but I long to do something I enjoy. Did it just come to you?

Any tips you can give me I will appreciate!
I am single Mom, so feel free to give advice...I need it emoticon

I know its a long hard road ahead of me, but I want more for my son, and I. I want him to see that hard work pays off... and that you can love what you do...and help others along the way! emoticon

You know I remember a few years ago I would Blog everyday, I think that is how I made it through these cravings...My SparkFriends were ALWAYS there for me. Sometimes its hard to ask for help. emoticon

Lord I thank you for my friends here...Please draw our hearts closer to yours, in Jesus name...Amen

    Hey girl, I have the same problem too right now. Must be in the air. I just dont bring it in the house right now because I will eat it till its gone. As far as going back to school, I had to do some soul searching to figure out what I wanted to become. I want to be a nurse. So I toured the colleges and made a plan. Now I am doing the pre req's for nursing school. Is it easy trying to lose weight, raise two kids alone, go to school and work full time. Heck no!! But I look around when I am at work and say "do I want to be here doing this in 4 years?" NO!! and I always tell myself the light is at the end of the tunnel and I can do this! You can do it!!!!

    Hey girl, first off I'm super glad you got those 10 days....and specially glad you appreciated the gift of time w/ your son in spite of not getting your other projects done! Though I know what it feels like to not get the " to do list" done! (but I'm sure you'll work your way through it eventually :) But oh, yes, I'm kinda in the same mode right now with eating-- Currently my eating is off the wall ridiculous, and I don't like it, makes me feel like crap, but I'm still doing it. I totally HEAR what you're saying and want the advice on how to break through the fog of unhealthy eating! Just sitting here thinking about it, I think I really have to purpose to start my day off on a really good note---something nourishing...it makes me feel so much better phsyically, mentally, emotionally--everything! Lol, but i think I'm solving my problem, not yours :P But I've plateaued right now BECAUSE my eating is off, before the weight was just coming off pretty steadily--because I was doing exercising & eating healthily! I don't understand the reasons that I sabotage, but I do know, binges, (or the more than one cookie thing) happens. I also know we start to believe what we tell ourselves...so tell yourself a few key points: I won't give up!!!! I am worth it! I am valuable! Thats a start anyways :) Hope you have a good Monday! emoticon emoticon
