Rambling Reboot

Monday, April 30, 2018

Well... my husband was home for 6 days. That’s the most he’s been home consecutively in months... normally just 2 or 3 days a month... either way... enough to throw us off our regular routine and then vanish again... lol. But, I’m also aware with everything coming up in the near future, it’s going to be quite difficult to have any sort of routine. I thrive on routine... my hubby on spontaneity... this isn’t always such a good thing... lol. But... our time together went well for the most part... :) Kept up with my fitness plan, in fact even got an extra walk in and hubby was joining me... :)))) Food wise, did the best we could... he’s really supportive and interested in learning and applying a keto lifestyle. But we are so busy doing what needs to be done that the best food choices aren’t always made... but we have improved here too. A little tough though as it was near the end of the month and food was getting low and money is tight. Money is going to continue to be extremely tight until we get ourselves moved again. Plus there’s added expenses of my daughters graduation, storage unit for all our outdoor and garage stuff that came due again that we have no place for at this time, and truck insurance. Not to mention the accumulated debt of trying to keep our company running as the economy downturned... it weighs so heavy on my soul... can’t wait for it to be taken care of. It will start to get better once we are moved, paying only one rent and allowance for groceries, no paying to get my hubby home and back to work and I get a job again! I’m mentally ready. It’s been almost two years since I’ve worked out of my home. It’s been quite the healing journey I’ve been on for ‘various’ BIG reasons... I wish the pain I have endured upon no one... it’s been hell and extremely hard to bounce back from... BUT!!! I’m getting there... this has been a long 4 1/2 years... and probably will be 5 years before all the pieces of our journey and new life fall into place. Anyways... financially... things are unreal tight at this time and this is going to mess with my progress and focus, I’m sure. Trying to be honest and realistic here, as eating healthy and organic as possible is not cheap!!! So is eating like crap... lol... but you get my point. It depresses me how expensive things are these days, and I’ve become quite the thrifty shopper... but it don’t matter how thrifty you are, if the moneys not there, it’s not there. Anyways... THIS TOO SHALL PASS!! Saw 175.8 on the scale and then TOM came and well I succumbed to a few weaknesses and the scale jumped to 179.4. I need to get my water intake up again... fell weak to drinking more coffee and water just naturally goes out the window with it. PLUS!! My scale stopped working. My hubby got it to work again but my mind can’t help but wonder if it went and added a few pounds... lol ;) Can’t afford a new one right now neither... oh well... Anyways... for the most part... a very active and productive week. All is good and all will only get better... all in good time, in God’s time. Amen

    I occasionally check my scale with a 10lb weight. Just to be sure. If it's off I put new batteries in and it's fine. I here you with regards to low funds. It's hard at times to make ends meet especially with surprise expenses. You will figure it out.

    You are doing so great despite the many reasons you could just give it all up (just being a single parent for most of any month would do me in) and say, "just too much work!" I am so inspired by your realism and attitude. Someone once said to me, "It's not that we struggle but how we struggle that inspires others... you know that, right?" Keep doing what you can and let go of the rest. Keeping you in my heart and prayers!

    Stay strong and have faith. Be thankful for what you have as I always do. We have all had rough times as life is a roller coaster. Things WILL fall into place. Hugs, Tanya
