Everyone once in a while, we have to reassess and see what works and what doesn't.
RIght now, because of life...the 30 minute workout thing is not working out as planned and my strength has been interrupted by my stability ball getting popped by my cherubs playing outside with it, thanks to my lovely darling hubby, who wanted to keep them occupied outside. Love them!
So on Monday, I worked out on the TM for just 10 minutes and got off. Told DH last night that I wanted to go on the TM for 10 minutes again, but got 20 minutes in instead, and then got off. I'm actually running during those times, increasing the time at each session. It honestly feels good and I now know why people run. The endorphine rush is very nice...not exactly orgasmic and not tipsy, but close to it...so why not continue - what's not to like! Not too many things can make a girl weak in the knees! ROFL!!
So that's the plan. I can squeek in 10 minutes a day...and if it goes up because of time availability, then that is great. I'm trying to focus on it as stress management, and the 10 minutes and other things will help me out there.
And today, I am buying a new digital scale - the spring is shot on my old one and I keep playing guess what weight you are today....so irritating!! I get it set up just so, then the 2 yo moves it and then I'm back to square one!

Sometimes we forget to breathe...we take on stresses that really should not be stresses, but happy fun stuff, and make them into...stresses.
So today is a day when I sit back and breathe.
Everything is fine and good. It's time to decompress.
That's the plan for today.
Track food...do some exercise and yoga...and breathe.

That was my life in a nutshell this past week. So busy with my nephew sleeping over from Tuesday night to Friday night (that's 4 boys in tow) with Halloween and church and Den meetings and holiday parties, homework and soccer practice, slean out the camper, etc. etc.
I hate those weeks. By the time work ended yesterday, I was draggin' ass - big time. Came home - told DH I was done and wanted to pass out right then and there, when son #1 took a header over his handle bars and split his lip. Drama ensued (he's fine) and then things finally calmed down enough for me to have a power nap. Son #3 had a fever on Tues and Wed too, so I was on the night shift with him. All that lack of sleep put the exercise on the back burner because at that point - sleep was just more important to function properly.
I'm stilil recouping (I think) because that paragraph above is just so out of sorts wacky....too foggy to fix it! LOL With everyone milling around, it's hard to think too! Ahh the pitter patter of little feet! Well, at least the little guy is feeling better and leaving me alone now!
It's a tracking day here - busy mom = no tracking mom. I'm making it a priority today to get things more under control with Sparking too. I need to use this site, especially when things are crazy. So that's what I'm going to do. It keeps my focus. So that is that.
But right now...I need more coffee...this time change had my kids up at 4:30 this morning. fun fun Where the heck is my coffee?

If I could choose my costume to match my mental state right at this moment, it would be Scrooge.
Happy go lucky, busy with my world and then....duh duh duh (insert evil music here) my Dh talks to his parents about Halloween. It's not just Halloween, it could be Arbor day and there is going to be drama. Pick a holiday, any holiday - I dare you. There's a very long story here...which, unfortunately, I will not share because it is WAAAAY to complicated, confusing etc. etc. Writing it will probably get more confusing without having additional diagrams to demonstrate the mother in-law's mental baggage.
One day, I am going to explode my pent up opinions all over everyone who has pissed me off over the last ten years. I can feel it brewing up inside of me like a volcano. I feel like I want to hold a board meeting like you see on TV and go through each person and set them straight, one at a time. They are all linked together in their stupidity and selfishness, self-loathing and martyring behavior. They are all right, everyone else is completely wrong. Individually righteous. Individually stupid in my God honest opinion.
You might shoot back at me and say, "Well honey, you're being just like them." I can honestly say, without any pretense that I am not. I'm the one who keeps her head down and listens to the stupidity and watches it all go down in a ball of flames. I live my life and stay out of theirs. I'm the giver, the nurturer, the hearth tender, the steady one who is constant and sane...there for whomever wants to have sanity in their lives if they recognize and acknowledge that that is who I am. Some do, others not so much. Sounds saintly, huh? LMAO yeah right. Try more centered and content, that's all. Just stuck in the middle of drama and a little pissed off that that is where I am always put.
Boy that feels better. Don't you just love it when things are going fine and then BOOM CRASH! Drama. Stress. Crap. Family. Stupidity. All flares up at once like a bad haemorrhoid.
My horoscope said today that I'd feel stressed and want to voice my opinion, but to hold off and to let things play out like I usually do. Too funny to read that in the morning when you know things aren't all peachy keen.
Haven't had a b-blog in a while...unfortunately, this is how I keep my sanity and my eating under control. I'm sure we'll have more in the next few months! LOL ROFL!!!!
OK - feeling more myself and I think the costume I'd put on now instead of Scrooge would be....hmmmm....a Witch. Making potions in a cauldron. Waiting pateintly to see how the brew will turn out...
