The good, the bad, the ugly.

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Top of my list... my daughter has done 2 days of school... with no incident. The girls who were being mean to her have forgotten their spat just as quickly as it was brought on. She had come home from school yesterday all smiles, happy and content that nothing bad was going on. THANK GOODNESS. One less stress in my life.
Then... yesterday was my middle daughter's conferences with school. She has been doing very well in class and had improved over the past couple of years... which pleases me so. The only bad thing the teacher had mentioned about her... was that sometimes she stares off into space sometimes and doesn't always catch what is going on. With that... the teacher said she was going to move her to closer to the front of the class so she can try and gain her attention more.
I spent the night sitting in front of the tv bawling my eyes out. Not because I'm a big baby... but because I was watching the Chilean Miner rescue. How beautiful of a sight that was seeing these families reunited and the miners all safe, healthy and now free. It was beautiful. It touched my heart. What a beautiful feeling.

My eating habits have been slacking lately. I think I possibly had more cookies, or ice cream or chips than I probably should have. In turn... it's made me feel kind of nauseous. It has upset my stomach... and I'm hoping to take that as a sign of QUIT DOING IT THEN!
My over eating is putting a hitch in my quest to loose the weight before my Ohio event next year. Which is making me feel really bad. I want this more than anything in the world... yet I keep falling back into the same nasty routine of unhealthy eating. I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that I've been stressing a lot lately... and I'm a stress eater. emoticon

It's just the ugly truth... that if I don't do something about my habits, about my lack motivation (even though I have the BIGGEST motivator ever in Ohio) about my self control... I'm never going to reach my goals. I won't get to my spot I'm hoping for. I need to really sit down once again and re-evaluate all that I am doing and for what reasons, my goals, my life. So I can better ascertain what it is I am doing wrong, what I can do to improve and what will help me stay focused along the way... whether it be photos, notes, what have you.

Okay... le sigh. Now that is off my chest.... lol. Time to go work on me.

    I hear ya with the stressors..... but finding something to relieve the stress other than food is a great way to start. One thing that always helps with my stress is to get some exercise in. If I start feeling stressed at work I go walk the stairs or go for a short little walk. The same goes for at home but it is usually cleaning. LOL (I love to clean!)

    The other thing that helps is to just close my mind and try to relax. Turn on some calming music or just keep it silent. Almost like meditating.

    Don't give up and keep fighting because I KNOW you can do this!!! You have already lost 20 pounds.... that is awesome!


    So glad your daughter is feeling more comfortable at school. I am an over protective mom and would probably over step my boundaries if someone was hurting my kids. You are right though to let her work out her own problems. It is hard as a mother though to not be involved.

    emoticon Stay strong!
    These rough patches are soon over.
    Stay focused on your goals, determined to reach them, and positive that you wlll!
    It also helps to take several deep breaths while telling yourself that you can handle today's obstacles!
    Just do the best you can today. That's all any of us can do.

    I agree with the other person who commented - its not easy, but you can do it! Removing the temptations from the house is a great way to keep yourself on track! You are making great progress so far and keep it up! And don't feel bad - I cry in front of the TV all the time and my husband thinks it hilarious! Pretty much every episode of the Biggest Loser I am a total cry baby! haha!
