Sorry

Monday, October 14, 2013

I'm really sorry for not being on in over a month. It's been hell. I've had a crashed laptop, all the new teacher regulations, random crap, and more struggles with my daughter. I'm down, slightly. I've started eating more fruits and vegetables. A banana with breakfast and a salad with lunch and dinner. I am trying to do yoga and circuit training while watching tv. It's helped a bit. Unfortunately, the tantrums with my daughter have effected my workouts. Her tantrums have caused me to miss out on some. For those of you not aware, these are not typical tantrums. She has severe ADHD and a non-specific form of mental health issue that will most likely not be diagnosed until she's a teenager.

    One of my Grand children had that and I can remember my daughter giving him time out by putting him in his pushchair for 5 minutes.

    emoticon Sorry to hear that you are going through some tough times. Dealing with kids can be rough. If you need to vent I am an email away. I'm also a social worker who worked with kids with mental illness, emotional and behavioral problems if you need any ideas or someone just to bounce ideas off of. Remember you are stronger than you think.

Squished In

Did a 45 minute walk and my 60 minutes of Pilates, today.

I also made some chili with the stewed tomatoes I canned, last week. Then I made some Apple Brown Betty for dessert.

Back

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

I'm back. Back to work.. Back with students. Back to the grind. Back to eating better. Back to working out, again. Back to feeling better. And a big backslide is over.

Yes, it happens. Every step you make is not always a step in the right direction. Sometimes we backslide. It happens. Now I know why. I quit the Pilates. My legs started to hurt more. The more they hurt the more I didn't want to work out and couldn't because of the pain. It's been an eye opening experience for me to see what using my Pilates machine does to me. On one hand, I'm so thrilled at the benefits while on the other hand I am in so much pain when I don't that it makes me feel almost tied to the machine.

I've also learned that I expect immediate results. All the time. I expect to be skinny super fast. I know that's not realistic; however, I still expect it.

Finally!

We received answers about Reese's biopsy. It was cancerous, but her bloodwork came back negative. So the cancer hasn't spread. We got it all.

I haven't heard anything from the biopsy results, yet. She's still been her typical happy puppy self. I can't explain to Vinny, our other dog, that they can't wrestle. It's sad to see her wanting to play with him but not be able to. I hoping answers come soon.

    You probably did - but did you call them? I wonder what is taking so long! I am hoping no news is good news! emoticon emoticon
