Much quicker to recover now!

The things that annoy me don't keep me off track as long any more. And when I stay a little annoyed, it's usually at myself for even BEING annoyed by it. Sigh. I'm still a work in progress.

I can't remember the last time I let something annoy me to the point that I went on an off the rails binge...Oh, wait, that was probably when I was in Ohio. Dealing with the last round of drama with my mother before she passed. I haven't had another one since then.

I'm still holding at 330, but it's better than the nearly 360 I started back at when I got home in mid May. And it's better than the 337 a few weeks ago when Hubs moved the scale and it suddenly weighed 12lbs higher than the 325 it read for my birthday. I'm not moving it again, lol. The actual number isn't the issue. It's the direction it moves in that's important!

I'm having fewer problems with my feet, ankles, and knees. Partly because I'm not even trying to do as much as I was before, and partly because the little losses are helping.

Last night, son made me decent hot food for dinner. I had chicken and dumplings :-) It was a little dry, but still better than junk food. Today, I'm trying to decide what I want to eat. I've avoided the junk food in the machine. I have a container of soup in my locker, I may do that for breakfast. I'm drowning in schoolwork, but it's ok, because I have the great tutor and I'm managing well in the classes I want to do well in. As long as I'm not behind, I'm good.

I'm ahead in cost, treading water in personal tax, on track with government/non-profit, and not as far behind in auto apps as I could be. I'm working on that today with the tutor.

It is what it is. I spent several hours in the shop yesterday. I got several scrubbies made, got some towels cut and run through the sewing machine to finish the edges, cut out several blankets for this weekend (at least one of which is a custom order), and did a few other things. I'm having my "help" from last week pick up her materials that haven't been started. I'm done doing all the work and sharing profits. I have to put my business first. Learning to keep business and friendships separate is not easy to do. And I do tend to let people take advantage of me. I'm having to work on that a lot more.

But I'm not binging! And I'm doing ok. I'm managing without help, I'm expressing the way I feel about the way other people are acting and not letting it completely derail me because they're being jerks. It is what it is and I'm getting there.

Hoping to be under 300 for Christmas, but hesitant to set a goal. I tend to shoot myself in the foot when I do that. So, we'll see how things go. As soon as I don't feel as exhausted, I'm going to try to start going swimming again. I think catching up on my rest and staying on top of the schoolwork has to have priority right now.

I've got this.

    Learning to say 'No" isn't easy. I think it's better to say no than it is to agree to something and then feel taken advantage of in the long run. Sometimes being friends in business just doesn't work. If you get aggravated with that person, but still have work with them the situation can get mighty uncomfortable. If somebody doesn't hold up their end of the bargain, then let them go on their own...

    I'm glad you're catching up on your rest. Your schedule is tiring for me and I'm only reading about it!

    Have a great day tomorrow! emoticon
