Almost Friday.......

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Attended to the matter addressed in the email I received yesterday - hope that satisfies my contact..........

Not too much more going on here now - the weekend, though, is *another story* altogether (reunion)! I'm cautiously looking forward to it - recent events have stolen my "social thunder" somewhat.........oh, well........

Enjoy your Thursday, Sparkies!

Another "hump" of a day to climb.......

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Got an email that irritated me somewhat (mostly at myself due to inability to get to the original matter as quickly as I would have preferred).......AAGGHH!! Now more than ever, I feel better about my decision earlier in the year to step out of a particular activity! If I think about that, it may help with my mood and attitude (which sure took a bit of a beating this morning).......

emoticon

Am working on getting back on track - but one thing's for sure ......... I cannot tolerate another PLATEAU!

emoticon

Enjoy your "hump day", Sparkies!

figures.......

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Attended to the stressful issue pretty well (it was as I suspected, and I got a sincere apology), but now I have a new stressor to deal with (the usual that comes along this time of year) - I will likely survive this time round as well, but things will be tight for a brief period.......sheesh! There's *always* something........

emoticon

Am *trying* to restore my routines and get back on track, but frankly, I cannot *trust* my body to respond as I want anymore...........have no clue how to deal with this situation, but I know this can potentially result in my throwing everything away that I've done to date.........and the thought of that *stinks*!

Why, oh WHY so many $#!@# PLATEAUS? Now I can't even trust myself to do the right thing, and wonder now if I was even on the right track AT ALL!

    Glad to see your comment on my raspberry blog!! What a great wallpaper you have here.

And as for plateaus -- they are part of the process, really. One of the best resources I know that really speaks to plateaus is Steve Siebold's free 21 day www.fatlosers.com program

It's somewhat "in your face" but of huge assistance in understanding the role of mental toughness both in weight loss/maintenance and "life" more generally . . .

    Plateaus aren't a bad thing in my view. I think your body and mind are just trying to come to an agreement on how to work together so they have a stalemate for a while. It'll work itself out and you'll see progression like you want again~

No worries about the neighbor spoke to him the other day and he's been hit 2 times now so he's doing what he needs to do to protect himself. I'm wondering if people who live on corners are more vulnerable to burglary. The guy across from him has been robbed as well so I am not sure what the deal is. I'm happy to have bought a house in the position on the block that I did because just about everyone can see my house. I have more lighting than anyone else, both of my neighbors have loud dogs and a security system. I have cameras as well so that likely is a serious deterrent. Plus someone is always here just about and awake so its not likely something will happen here. If it does, bad times for the criminal~

Hopefully your issues will be worked out soon and things can be a little less tight~

rock bottom :(

Monday, July 28, 2014

Horrible day yesterday - couldn't sleep worth a darn, and had nasty headaches to boot.........probably fallout from interrupted sleep the night before, and not consuming any caffeine that day.........still, between that, another $#!@# PLATEAU and the issue I need to deal with today.......yeah, gotta say this life right now is NOT. WORTH. LIVING.

emoticon

Have decided to suspend all weigh-ins until I feel there's a reason to do so - can't take another PLATEAU!

emoticon

Who knows how much longer I'll hang around here at this point...........

    times are tough right now but giving up won't change anything for the better. Give yourself a chance to regroup, recover, and retry. emoticon emoticon Today is another chance. Start fresh.
