DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 30 September 2013

Just keep trying trying trying. I have the swim song from Nemo stuck in my head so I'm using it. Last week I had to send an eviction notice to one of my tenants. Last month I had to fire my property manager. It's looking more and more like I'm going to have to try to figure out how to take a long weekend and go back home to deal with everything in person. I hate having rental property so far away. Now I just have to figure out how to juggle a toddler, a 14 hour car ride, and scheduling painting, carpet, and any repairs into a single weekend.. that's if the woman leaves peacefully. UGH!

Needless to say.. between that and hubby giving me the financial statement of all the bills for the farm. I'm stressed. Eating over the weekend.. sucked. I tried to log everything and will have to go back and make sure I added everything. I usually stopped logging by 4pm but kept right on eating. I need to stop that on the weekends.

Today? Today I'm doing great. I have a whole new list of reasons why I should get my eating under control. 1. Eating excessive amounts is expensive. 2. Eating too much just adds more stress to my already stress filled life. 3. I was talking to my best friend last night and she's a size 8 now. If I'm going to have to go back home then I have to see her. There is no way in heck she is going to see me if I don't get this weight back down. Love the girl but I want to look amazing when I see her. I think it's one of those mental competition girly things. Its either that or she needs to pack the pounds back on before I get there. Yup yup.

So now I am going to go workout, keep controling my eating, drink lots of water, and try not to pull all my hair out.

Stress sux! You'll get your eating figured out, you got the workout part going and that is half the battle. Isn't it terrible that we do the girly competition thing? She probably doesn't care one way or the other and when you see her you wouldn't care if she had gained. I think we judge ourselves too hard and assume everyone else does the same. I struggle with this, always thinking if my hips were smaller I'd like me better then everyone else would too, when the people I really care about don't give a fig how big my hips are!! Hang in there and good luck with the rental properties!

Wow, I thought I had stress! You have a lot of crap to deal with. Is there a reason you keep the rental property and don't just sell it? I wouldn't want to deal with it that far away. Keep your list of reasons to eat healthy handy, so you can look at it when you are having a weak moment. And, your friend will be happy to see you whether you have lost or not, so don't let that get in the way of having a good time with her. Seeing a good friend may help the stress anyway.

The only reason I've kept it is because at first it wouldn't sell then the property value dropped and I would have ended up paying someone to buy it. Now I think I can break even but it's hard to rent an apartment with a for sale sign in the front yard. Blech. I may have to just list it again and take my chances. It doesn't make a profit and the stress just isn't worth it.

Sounds like it's time to sell the rental property. Hopefully it will sell quickly. Love your mind set today...eating costs money! That's a good one to keep in the back of your head! Keep working out, it will make you feel better and you've got see some progress now...perhaps you don't puff as much as you did when you first started?! Try measuring yourself again.

Reason #4??? When you gain and still attempt to wear the same gym clothes then you risk your shorts trying to migrate into your butt crack. Neither attractive or comfortable.

I feel for you being under that kind of stress. Think your sense of humor gets you through it!

Hope you've had a good day. Stress certainly can take its toll, and as you know, eating poorly only adds to our stress. I've done it so many times even though it's so illogical. One day at a time, my friend! Xoxoxo
