Downsizing my Commitments

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

I have been working for Weight Watchers. I also have a day job and I do respite. This last two weeks I logged 170 hours with the Canadian by Election as well. I'm tired.

I'm not doing well on Weight Watchers so I quit this last month. I will work for a few more weeks but I am finished. It feels good to know that soon I'll be home with my family on the only day they are all home. It also feels good to know that I won't have the added pressure of feeling like a failure. I'm good at what I do, I just can't seem to get myself to do it.

I am a bit excited and a bit sad that things are changing. but I feel good about the changes as well. Let see what this all becomes.

    Sometimes we just need a change. Being with your family is important too. Good luck!

A new Week

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

It's a new week. A fresh start. A time to prove to myself that I am capable.

I'm listening to Peter Walsh's Does this clutter make my butt look big.

I'm taking my son to the kids amusement park today. Should be a fun day of walking around.

Off To Camp

Monday, August 12, 2013

My daughter (12) is off to camp for the week. She was excited and nervous. The girl she made plans to sit with ended up sitting with someone else. :( but in the end two boys from her class sat with her. It's going to be a long ride with three to a seat. But she said they weren't squished at all.

My goals for this week are to stick with my pointsplus target no matter what. To drink more (real, not sparkling) water this week. To exercise daily.

These are all things I used to do easy and now can't seem to get to.

So Proud

Sunday, August 11, 2013

My son and his friend slept in the tent in our back yard last night. At 2 he came back in. I helped him change his clothes (he had wet) and got him some new blankets. He wouldn't let me come out to help him get settled. I'll do it, he says.

He's becoming so independent in some ways.

    Sounds like he's growing up. Good for you respecting his independence. It's hard I know - still trying to remind myself that my 16 year old son is juuuuust perfect and try to avoid little reminders to him about grooming and cleanliness.

IWAK, Dave

huff puff...

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

I sit here every day and wonder what it would be like to be a runner. I sit here and listen to people talk about running and am envious. They make it sound easy.

I hate that I have gained weight this year. I hate that I can feel the extra 40 lbs when I move. I hate that I let it get this way.

I hate that despite this dialogue running through my head each and every day, hour, minute I went and bought two cupcakes and lunch today.

I have a few hours without kids today. I sat on the couch and watched tv.

I have an hour more without kids today so I got off my butt. I went for a run. I did. I didn't make it to the end of the road. I didn't make it to the caution sign. I did make it farther than I thought I would. In my head it's easy. In my body it's not. I'm great at Wii running. It will take time and effort to be good at real running. But I can't keep feeling like I'm the victim. I am the one who got me this way, I am the only one who can get me back the way I once was.

    I completed Couch to 5K a while ago and can't say enough positive things about it. It got me from being a total non-runner to being able to run 3.1 miles. I run slowly, but at least I run! It was amazing.

Be patient with yourself. And try to remember that your mind WILL try to trick you into stopping before your body really needs to. Good for you for being it a try!

    Running is not easy. I know, because I do it. I run 4 miles, with hills, 3 days a week, and it took me a long time to build up to that. Landmarking helped me a lot. Today, I will run to that lightpost. Next week, I will run one lightpost further. Give yourself time, and treat yourself gently and do what you can.
