9/1/14 Hi

Monday, September 01, 2014

9/1/14 Hi

It's been a long 2 days. Watching my
3 grandkids from Early Sun Morning till
at least midnight tonight. Longer than I
was supposed to.

Was supposed to get up 5am tomorrow to
take a man to Dialysis. Fortunately for me
that was cancelled.

SO that's good I can go home and sleep in my
own bed, after I lay down here for a bit,
till they get in.

I'm tired, its just exhausting to be responsible
for 3 even though they are 7; 12 & 14.

Mental exhausting mostly. Got 1 broken window
in the girls bedroom from a golf ball, accidentally
hit the wrong way outside.

SO I put up cardboard and taped it good. Their mom said
no big deal, that was good.

Eating off kilter,but tomorrow is a new day to get it right.

Hope you all had a safe holiday.

Pray for my daughter & hubby as they travel the busy highways
coming home tonight, after taking the oldest to
Pensacola Christian College. It was a happy & sad time. My
daughter did a lot of crying.

She's gonna miss that boy.

Take care

    You've had quite the weekend with the grands! I sure understand how your daughter feels. my son was only 1 hr. 20 min. away, but during the winter months I didn't see him much. After grad school he did a fellowship I Grand Rapids, MI...toooooo far from home in NY!

    LOL. A broken window even. Sounds like you have quite a handful. LOL.

I can certainly relate to what your daughter is going through. Hopefully he is close enough to come home for frequent visits. My son was only an hour and a half away but in bad weather that can be quite a drive. I hope they have a good trip home.

    Hi! You certainly have had a busy two days. You are such a good mom and grandma.
Prayers for your daughter and hubby, not only for travel but for missing their son (I know I'll be there some day).
Tomorrow is a new day for all of us, thank goodness.
Have a good rest and a good night sleep.

8/30/14 Car better

Guy came to tow the car today and he was
able to get the tire off and change it to the spare.
Now I have the donut on. WOn't be doing much driving
this weekend with watching the grandkids so that is good.
I can use my daughters car also while I am there.

I'm tired, made some chicken noodle soup, the old cheat
way, but I just need to go sleep.

Going to be a hectic next 2 days with 3 grandkids.

Thanks for all your notes & concern.

So far eating on track even with the stress.. Yes,
Thank You Lord!

Love you all!

    I seem to be getting clogged up. I need to take some Airborne. Chicken noodle soup sounds very good to me. I might fix some too.

I hope your car worries are over soon!

8/29/14 New Dawn

Friday, August 29, 2014

8/29/14 Friday - New Dawn - New Day - New Start

I decided I got to change things up. Do thing different,
or do things that I used to do when I was consistently
losing weight.

I MUST get back under 200 to the One-derland.

emoticon

I miss them! I want them Back, but Only I can make
it happen.

Will track my weight, write it down.
Will track my sugar, write it down.
Will track my steps & miles walked, write it down.
Will consistently keep my food diary.

emoticon emoticon
All my Spark Friends

For being there for me and for each other.

TOGETHER WE CAN!

    Nancy, it's gotta be frustrating to be fighting to lose weight to only find that long term, you are not losing at all...and I know we all go up and down at times, but I'm just feeling to share this thought with you today (forgive me if I'm wrong)...Sometimes we have hidden reasons (that we don't even know ourselves) that make us sabotage our own progress....I know because I've done it SOOO many times. Can you think of any reason that you (that inner you) might not really want to be under the 200 mark? (ie. if I lose xx pounds people will expect me to do yy or I will no longer have an excuse for zz...) Or some area of your life that you might find is less controllable for you if you get down there? Just meditate on that and you might be able to break free of some ruling thoughts you have that are slowing down your progress...

Thursday 8/28/14

Thursday 8/28/14

Went to TOPS this AM. Gained 1.75#.
Bummer!

This too shall pass.

When I started Dec 19th last year at TOPS
I weighed 207 pounds
Now I weigh 215.50.
Definitely the wrong direction.
I am definitely going to regroup, change
direction, change my mind, do things different,
need to set goals etc.

Other than that, I'm on the mend, still somewhat
off center, but making progress.

It's late so I'm getting to bed shortly.

Had dinner at my daughter's tonight.

My grandson Bryce is leaving for Pensacola
Christian College on Sunday. They are taking him
and I'm staying with the 3 younger kids for 2 days.
Interesting concept .....Pray that I survive and
equally that they do as well....

Have a great rest of the week.

    I am proud of you for continuing to go to your TOPS meetings and not giving up. That is very hard to do. I know that you can do this - just put your mind to it and set small attainable goals.

8/23/14 Saturday

8/23/14 Saturday

Up & down eating Day. Actually,
Terrible!

But it's over, on to better days to come.
I keep saying that & it will happen.

I hope you've had a good weekend. My
exercise is less than normal today. I am
usually pretty good with that.

Church services tonight were AWESOME!

My grandson is preaching at his church tomorrow
night so I will be going to that.

He will attend Pensacola Christian College in
September and wants to go into the Lord's Work!

This will be his 2nd time preaching, so I think he'll
be less nervous this time.

Have a great weekend!
