A sighting of the old me

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

I had to laugh at myself today. I just pulled into the parking lot of our apartment when I had to stop to wait for a guy switching the old dumpsters for bright shiny new ones. The new ones were already in place and he was moving the old ones around with a forklift. Well, I was so engrossed in watching the forklift that I didn't notice he had stopped and was motioning for me to go around. What can I say? I know many truckers and work with 2 year olds. Trucks are a big deal.

I'm starting to cook again. Granted it's only roasted potatoes (sweet and white), but it's still better than microwave popcorn. Then again, if I went for the popcorn I'd reach the minimum requirements for fat. Maybe some peanut butter. I'm actually making an effort with the tracker today.

My parents are already asking about Thanksgiving. I don't want to think that far ahead. Too stressful to get worked up about it this early. My cousin and her daughter are fighting hardcore. They don't believe that my mom and I don't fight. My mom tried explaining that we learned early that life is too short to fight with those you care about. It's true. If you understand that each time you speak with someone could be the last, you don't fight and/or say hurtful things. Hard lesson to learn, but important.

    i agree with about fighting how true. you are on you way !!! good for your and the cooking taking baby steps is how we get going on the Spark trail keep up the good work you can do it. the last blog i read the little ones were already turning in their Christmas wish list !!!! so turkey is a little closer sorry the holidays are stressful for you. like you said about fighting and be sorry for words said be thankful you have family that cares sometimes i think its just to have something to talk abut at the gym i go to they are reminding us that the holidays are fast approaching and its time to get a plan in place. but i do agree it is early to invite you to dinner emoticon

    I'm glad you're seeing parts of your true self knocking and asking to come out. Every small step you make back to your healthy journey is a good step. Starting slow will help you move forward without overwhelming you. Be proud of what you're doing!

    It's barely September and they're already looking towards November? Wow, yeah that's too soon. You have enough to focus on in this moment. If they push, you might say that you're expecting to ____, but you won't know for sure until a few weeks prior, so you promise to let them know when you do.
