The cold has arrived and although not very cold yet I do not like it already.

Hope everyone is well. Hugs to all.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Hugs my Friends.

Training with the Pyrs went well, but it's tiring.

Vicky, so glad your son went to school. It's a start. Now we keep praying that he keeps going!
Hugs!

Georgia, we will just push through together!

You know Cathy that is exactly what it feels like. Constantly pushing and then feeling totally exhausted. life wasn't meant to be this hard but we do what we do to help the kids get to a good place.

Hugs to you all dear ladies.

Georgia, Stay safe! Those storms sound scary. We just had torrential downpours here and lots of flooding. I hope the storms by you are over quickly and don't cause damage.

Vicky, I feel your pain. I've been there with my now 23 year old. Just keep being firm and respectful to him and like Georgia said, show him what will happen if he doesn't buckle down. I know personally what happens through my son...not good! Try to remind him all he has done so far and how little he has left. This is really hard for boys...work hard in school and then work hard at work. Lots of pressure. They just need a lot of love support and reminders. Maybe he will just work through it...I hope!

My Josiah went through slumps during this year and I just kept on him. He wasn't allowed to play video games or be on his phone until all work was done. It didn't matter if that took days, I stayed firm and consistent. Also, I have a contract with him that if his grades fall he pays for 1/2 of his drivers ed which isn't cheap, especially for someone who doesn't have a job yet! Josiah is at straight A's right now, but that is because he worked really hard to get there with a lot of pressure from his teacher...me! Hugs my friend!

I am tired, but pushing on. I am going to get moving and go work with my Pyrs. They have training tomorrow. Yay!

Hugs to all, Cathy

Vicki it is hard. He has to take responsibility. Maybe you can show him what will happen if he does not get an education. Working in low level jobs or even homeless. Brutal realities..
Can a counsellor at school talk to him?

All I can do is offer suggestions. I do feel your pain.

Well the worst of it is over. Flooding rains and now howling winds. This Cyclone we have had up north made sure to include the whole state with disaster. We were all sent home from work at lunch time yesterday. Schools are closed for 2 days. Too much risk.

Hopefully the damage that will be visible today is not too dramatic.

Hugs to all.

Gots lots on my mind here too. Been having a rough time with Bryan getting up for school and I don't know what to do anymore. He's missing school because of it. And he's being very disrespectful to me and it hurts

Cathy how exciting. I understand what a relief it will be to have the dogs bathed in a"better" area.
I hear you on the up and down. I seem to be doing the same thing here too. We can do this.

I am under too much pressure with things going on around me. Just can't seem to keep it under control at the moment. Doing my best though.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Vicky, I am glad you had a great birthday! emoticon

I am so crazy busy with school, extra activities and Dr. appts. for all. No complaints, just is what it is.

My Josiah is starting Driving School next week! Where did the time go? In our state is required to take a class. I don't have a problem with that, just the ridiculous cost!

Randy put in a laundry tub in the basement for me. First time I've ever had one in my adult life! We will be building a ramp so the dogs can get in and I can bathe them. I've wanted this for so long so I don't have to bathe them in our "people" tub, plus it makes such a huge mess in our living quarters. Yay! We found an affordable way to do it, hubby is very handy (thankfully) and it is dual purpose! Sorry to go on and on, but I'm so excited!

I am trying hard to watch everything I eat. Starting to track again too. I go up and down with the amount of steps. I do really well for a couple of weeks, then get busy and the steps go down. I guess the average is what counts.

How is everyone? I think we are all at a busy time right now.

Sending hugs to all and really good positive thoughts!

I am happy for you Vicki. I do believe once the mind is in the right place everything falls into place.
I persist everyday...

We had some much needed rain yesterday and some last night. The earth needs more and I hope we get some more soon.

Waiting for the sun to come up so I can see if it is a walk outside morning or do an indoor one.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Georgia,
I started doing Beachbody workouts last summer. I needed a change in workouts. The eating has always been an issue for me. So I got with a Beachbody coach and got active in her Facebook group for support and started following more of the nutrition guides that go with the exercise plans I am doing Then I also started taking part in personal development. Whether it be books or podcasts I listen to it helped me to have a huge mind shift. I don't find myself being so hard on myself anymore. I am willing to be more open to try different workouts and give myself credit where credit is due. It has been huge for me and that is why i think I have had success.

Vicki your progress looks good. How did you lose all that weight? Some pointers please.

Dee so glad you can have tomorrow off. Enjoy your sleep in.

I went and saw My Fair Lady last night.The show was amazing. Fast paced and the costumes were so stunning and a couple of the outfits were amazing and I would easily wear them. The singing was delightful and the antics of the show quite amusing.
Loved it and glad I went.

Alas the downfall is I am working tonight and with only 5 hours sleep ( I have my hairdresser this morning). Bad planning on my part.

I can do this and then I shall sleep well tonight.

Have a great day everyone.

Hi All, how is everyone doing?

Georgia, glad you had a good time at your friends birthday celebration.

Vicki, hope you are staying safe and warm with that crazy weather you are getting.

Becky, that exhibition sounds like a great time.

Cathy, how are things with you and yours?

Everyone Else, Hope all is well.

me, hanging in there as usual. Feeling tired and drained lately. Store has been gearing up for inventory tomorrow. That's where an outside company comes in and counts everything in the store. Even while customers are shopping. Luckily I am off tomorrow and don't have to participate as in previous years. Hoping to sleep in a bit as well. A good nights sleep has been elusive lately.

Yay, Georgia! Great honor!

Cathy, totally hear you - my Fitbit usually says 6 hours or so. Wish I could stay asleep, too. We'll get there!

Vicky, love your FB posts about your journey. Keep up the awesome work!

Hugs to everyone! Happy International Women's Day.

I am on spring break and loving the time to be home more. Ev even took over "morning duties" for the boys this morning so that I could sleep in a bit, then he & I went on a date to the Bowers Museum for the Frida Kahlo photography exhibit, then lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant that is not close to home. Lovely way to spend International Women's Day.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Vicky, you are amazing if you can even do half a plank! They are hard! I tried again today and just got into the position and held it for a few seconds, then stopped and tried again. I know I can do it...eventually!

Georgia, that is wonderful that you get to go to the headquarters of your work! I hope it is a wonderful time. You deserve this honor as you always work so hard! Way to go!

We had some crazy storms last night with lots of high winds, thunderstorms and lightning and rain. All is well, thankfully.

I have been wearing my Fitbit at night to see how much sleep I get. If it is accurate I get an average of just under 5 hours of sleep a night. I got to bed plenty early, unwinding first, and am in bed a proper amount of time, but just can't sleep. Ah, menopause. Hopefully this will pass soon. Doesn't help with thinking or weight loss.

Hope everyone is well.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Georgia that sounds like great news.

Cathy planks are definitely something you need to build up to. I'm getting better but my first attempts were comical lol!

Some positive news for a change. My area manager has decided to take me interstate with her next month for the monthly area manager meeting. I have never been to our head office and am quite excited. Alas Barry's face fell when I told him. I am going and he can just make do with out me for about 40 hours. This is a great honour.

Cathy the weather is still hot and feels like Autumn has bypassed us and it will be winter next.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Hugs Becky! Always here for you!

Georgia, I hope you soon have some cooler days. Like you Vicky we are having ups and downs in temps. We have high winds and thunderstorms coming tonight.

I tried a FitStar workout that is programmed into my Fitbit and it showed me how out of shape I am! Wow, a plank? Really? I do that every night! It's called sleep! LOL I will keep trying and build up to it. Kind of a neat feature as it shows you what to do, includes a warm up, an ab exercise and an aerobic workout.

I hope all of you are doing well. Things are well messy.

Hugs, Cathy

Cathy well said. Life's messes are definitely what derail me. The minute I get stressed - eat like a starved animal.

Vicki welcome back. You seem to be doing right things to get on the path of good health.

Last night at work I was so good. I was bored and wanted to eat chocolate or cake or something. So I went and bought a very small chocolate to appease the sugar need and it was sufficient. Normally I would buy lots to appease the sugar need. Then had an apple as well.

Hi everyone!
I wasn't getting notifications so sorry for being MIA.
I hear you. Life's stresses have tired me out and derailed my eating in the past. Recently I've been working with a coach in not just healthy eating but personal development and I've been listening and reading PD everyday it has helped a lot!
You are all wonderful!!!!

I don't know about you, but I get sidetracked by "Life's Messes." I am much better about it than I used to be. Now, life's messes just slow me down or reroute me, rather than paralyze me. But I still need to work on this.
How about you?
Do the trials of life cause you to de-rail in your eating patterns or exercise?
Are you stressed to the point of eating the wrong things for comfort?
Do you feel tired and out of energy from stress or lack of sleep and so you skip that workout?
Me too, me too, me too!
So, this month, let's concentrate on not letting the mess of life become a path to destructive eating.
Let's comfort ourselves with a good book and a cuppa tea.
Let's work through anxiety and anger with some exercise, even if for 10 minutes.
Let's look at life's messes as solvable instead of something that eats us alive...even if that solution is unknown at the time or takes a long time. That's okay.
We can do this together!
You are the most amazing wonderful people!

Thanks for being you!

Hugs, Cathy
