Hello Sassies,

I am kicking off today's thread from work, hiding in my office under air conditioning. I will be sitting on my bottom for most of the day today Crying or Very sad so I have planned an evening walk to release some energy after a "stressful" day of sitting down all day Rolling Eyes

WOD - C's 10 min w/o (still blessing you for sharing that C - it even came on holiday with me last month), 100 stomach exercises, 30 push ups (girly ones as Drose calls them! - can't manage big boy ones)and evening walk.

We have my husband's nephew staying with us all summer so getting the lounge to myself to do a DVD w/o seems impossible to organise but I am kicking excuses to the curb and will grab 20 minutes in my bedroom, under air con and with my MP3 playing, after work. I will then walk after dinner (after dark). If I can get into a routine of this, I think it will have to be my limit for summer holidays while we are inundated with work (long hours)and visitors (many more to come after Ramazan).

Last night, DH suggested another walk after our meal. WOW! I didn't even have to say a thing. At the restaurant I ate chicken with salad (no bread, no rice). After our walk, DH wanted to visit a patisserie. I ordered a herbal tea, while he had baklava and the kids ate cheesecake and birthday cake. It was painless for me as I thought about the wheat and sugars in their choices..... maybe there was something in that audio book after all Wink as that felt like progress.

Hoping everyone has a sassy summer day x

Good morning Kelly and all sassies,

WARNING: release of irritated feelings ahead. Yesterday was not good. Worked, which went fine but long day. Then realized I should mow the grass, then realized today is my granddaughter's birthday and we had not shopped for a gift and card. Off to Walmart I go after DH got home. Tension in the house and he let me rant. Hurts are hard to get over and now there are triggers that set me off. PMS doesn't help either. We talked and hugged and I cried. He listened and there was no fight. So it was what it was. Some days I hate living my life like this. Time heals all wounds is a joke. You just live your life differently and things are never quite the same.
Spew over now....

I didn't have WOD yesterday for reasons above. Hoping to walk twice as far today to make up for it. If I can get in butt and arms today maybe I can get caught up. Scales about same as yesterday and just under where I was this time last week. Not much progress. Grandkids today. Second granddaughter turns 9 today. Dinner with family tonight to celebrate. Son coming home tomorrow. Some days I just want to go crawl under a rock and hibernate forever.

Sorry for being such a downer. I know I should be thankful. And I am thankful for all of you that let me let it all out here. You all are so supportive not only in weight loss attempts but in all aspects of life. It's all rolled into one, right?

Will check in later.

Dear sweet Becky - you're right, time doesn't heal all wounds, but like so many things we choose to let those old hurts upset us. Good for you that you were able to rant and get it out of your system. I'm sorry that you even have to make the choice. I hope you can enjoy and celebrate your granddaughter's birthday today!

Kelly - wow! Your determination to work out is inspiring. I asked my husband this morning if we could hire someone to work out for us.Shock

That said, I did get a run in this morning, 2.6 miles in 30 minutes with very little hip pain, so I was pleased. I'll be using that 10 minute workout this weekend because we will have a full house and schedule and ten minutes is probably all I'll be able to work in.

Blessings to all~

Okay C which 10 min workout did u do?

I,v been missing in action eatiing out of fear. If I get the rest of my life together and not my finances, they eat away at me. It,s so hard to eat right when u are struggling financially. My house pymt just went up again. I,m so tired of being strong. I,m allergic to nail chemicals and I,m a a nail tech and I,ve always supported myseof til now and every month I just barely make it and I feel like my time has ran up. I need to sell my house and the thought of having people in it just freaks me out and I stay stuck.
I got my vitamin D pill 50,000 iu and I,m afraid to take cuz of side effects hard on kidneys and I felt so healthy when I was eating clean. I think this is the sugar talking.

Becky, I,m jealous, I need a good cry.

I csnt seem to pull myself out of this funk.

I am grateful for all of my sassies when I,m feeling so frumpy.

Coffee thats it, Laurie

PS Tennis Match in 100 degrees tonight!?!!

I just caught up on posts:

Kelly jumping on a mini trampoline gets lymph system working. Do u have waves at your beach jump waves. Jump in cold water. Body brush, get a brush with natural bristles and lightly brush towards your heart. It also gets circulation going. I realize heat is half my problem now I really dread it but I could be doing these things too. When I sit all day, fluid just settles take some breaks and shake it!Move it 10 min u got this.

C, *hug* for daughter and u.

Renee, Glad u found buddy!

Brenda, I cant be in one more challenge but I love u.

Laurie, No one should be jealous of my hurt. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Well, there is one that I would but not getting into that. Hope you have a good cry anyway! Watch a tear-jerker movie and let it spill.

Good evening Sassys!!
Thank you everyone with the kind words about my challenge!! And thank you to those who could join!!! I want to give a SHOUT OUT!!! to Becky!!! Thank you so much for guiding me thru the "tweaking" of my challenge!! I do appreciate it!!!
Becky, of ALL people I KNOW time does NOT heal all wounds. It can come upon us with a gut wrenching force that is unbearable. Somehow we have to get stronger to hold the pain. Found a pic I put in photos to share.
My day got away from me yesterday and didn't post. And today was if-y. Internet service, and...... wait for it...... God forbid.....Cable TV was out for awhile today. Back on now and all is well.n
Friction in this household......DH can be a D A H.......know what I mean!!!!!
WOD has been weights, hoop, and stationary bike. Yesterday was bike and hoop. Yard work keeps me very busy these days. Also, made a honest attempt to clean out my closet. Shoes anyway!!!
Hope all are havinga great evening!Brenda ♥
