Day 77: NO BROODING ALLOWED!!!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

That's what I am telling myself this week. I have got to hike up my pants (they are getting baggy :) ) and suck it up this week! No more brooding! And boy do I want to!
I FINALLY got my treadmill yesterday and was excited because it came early enough for Marc to still be home to help get it inside. So after the games I was able to put it together. Again I was excited because it was mostly put together it just needed a few bolts and screws and I was done! Woohoo! right? NO! Not right! NOT RIGHT AT ALL!! (Stamping feet) It won't turn on! All it does is *click, click, click* I've tried everything! I took it back a part and put it back together, I reset it, cleaned off where the emergency clip thing goes to turn it on.. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE STUPID THING!! I googled, I searched, I read, I called support but they're off on the weekends, HOW NICE FOR THEM!!

(I think that's the mad face emoticon I know this one is confused, which I am that too. lol!)
I'm SO irritated and was irritable with the boys yesterday because of it, Marc included. Poor guy probably wishes he didn't call to check on the progress. Oops! :)

BUT, that's it! I'm done! As Marc would say, It is what it is. There is nothing I can do, so there's no use in brooding over it. I started last week off by brooding, this week will not begin with brooding!! I will just breath and move on until Monday when I can call those Bwords. lol!

Today I will celebrate being down 2.6 pounds this week!!! YAY!!!!
Today I will celebrate a new week! A New Day! A New Start to a New Challenge!! A another day with my boys! Another day that I can prove to myself that I can be happy, productive, eat well, exercise, and be a good mom and go to bed proud of myself tonight! I CAN DO THIS!!! I REALLY, REALLY CAN!!!

    Oh, that is frustrating! Hopefully they will have a quick solution (or a replacement) tomorrow!

    We have been waiting for our new spin bike forever. Last update was estimated arrival at the warehouse tomorrow with delivery by the weekend. I will call tomorrow and see if it is true. If not, we may have to cancel the order and go with another company. It's already been a month of backorders emoticon .

    Hope you can get out and walk/run today!!!! emoticon

    I can feel your frustration, I'd be pissed too... but I'm happy you decided to change that attitude, focus on the positive (YAY on the weight loss), and enjoy your time with the family. I got to see my aunt and uncle last night, which made me very happy. They live in Thailand so they don't visit the states too often. They have their own ministry there so they are very busy. It definitely puts a positive edge to beginning the week. I weigh in tomorrow (though I cheated this morning because I had ice cream 2 days in a row)and no matter what the scale says, I'm just going to move on and work harder if it turns out to be a gain.

    I hope the weather is good there and you can enjoy the outdoors and walk.. Way better than a stupid treadmill that you can't get to work... hope those Bwords can help you tomorrow!!

    Take care
