20 November 2015

TGIF!! I hope everyone is feeling as happy as I am that it's Friday! I've been busy at work and it's felt like a week full of Monday's and I'm busy at home too, so I'm ready for the weekend to get here. Not that I won't be busy then too, but at least I'll get to have some fun. :)

Tomorrow my daughter and I were going to babysit our nieces with my SIL, but then we found out the in-laws were only bringing 1 of the 3 and they are taking her with them to the craft show they're doing. So, instead of traveling all the way to the craft show (an extra hour on top of the hour to babysit already), we're just going to wait and see them at Christmas. They're people who try to make it difficult to see them and then try to make you feel bad about it, but I'm over it. I can't rearrange my life at the last minute to see them. So instead of doing that my daughter and I are going to a local craft fair, which has become tradition for us, and then shopping for Christmas concert outfits for both kids. Then later that night I'm going to a movie with a friend that I only see a couple of times per year, so I'm really looking forward to that. Sunday will just be my grocery, laundry, homework, and general catch up day. Maybe I'll even manage to get some exercise in this weekend too. I need it, and haven't been doing it, so if I would at least get something done on the weekend it's better than nothing.

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving next week and I'm not stressing about the food too much. I have a stomach condition and if I overeat I'll be completely miserable, so luckily when I'm with family away from home I don't tend to overdo it. If I'm at home that's a completely different story unfortunately and I've been overeating a lot lately and my stomach has been hurting. You'd think my stomach feeling terrible would be enough for me to quit doing it, but I haven't changed my ways yet. My goal through the holidays though is to keep recording as much as I can and hopefully that will help keep me in check.

Well, I've rambled on enough. That's what happens when you don't journal for a week. :) I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

I'm so glad it's Friday, but it's going to be a loooonnnngggg day. I'm the only office person working today. There will be some other people in and out, but it will mainly just be me in the office. Hopefully I'll be able to get some things done that I normally wouldn't with the interruptions of the office and the day will end up going by quickly.

I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. My hubby and I are going Christmas shopping out of town and then having a night out. We're just going to go out for dinner then lose a little money at a casino, nothing too crazy, but it will just be fun to have a night away. Hopefully we'll get some good shopping done too so we'll be almost finished. When your kids get older it seems harder and harder to shop for them. My daughter wants "fun" things, but when we ask her what she wants it's shoes and clothes, then on Christmas she always says she's bored. My son is a Star Wars nut (so am I), so he's easy to shop for this year, that stuff is everywhere!

On the eating front, I did a little better yesterday, but I had a couple of slip ups. Today I have all of my food and I can't leave the office, so I wouldn't be able to grab fast food or anything, but there is a lot of chocolate here, so hopefully I keep myself so busy that I don't want to eat it.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!!

This week has been stressful and emotional so far, I'm glad it's almost the weekend. The funeral for my supervisor who passed away was on Tuesday and that was hard. I'm so glad all my co-workers went too and we were able to share a good cry together. I usually hold back my tears, but I didn't at the funeral and I'm glad I let it out. It was a very sad day, but it has just brought up so many good things about him that have put a smile on people's faces, we're all better for having known him.

Work has been hectic with helping plan some things for the funeral and then just busy on top of that. I did get Christmas party invites sent out, so that is another thing marked off my to-do list. Now, work is slowing down toward the end of the week, but tomorrow after noon (possibly all day) I'll be the only one in the office, so that will be boring but will hopefully keep me busy and make the day fly by.

I have been eating terribly and not exercising. I have been using about every spare minute to work on my classes, so I'm not too mad at myself for not exercising, but I would like to make time for it and get my mind to want to do it again. I have no excuse for not eating well though. I tell myself I'm going to eat well, then I overeat or skip my fruits and veggies and go for chocolate or chips. It's just been bad. I know that a lot of my issue now is my stressed brain telling me too eat the junk and I'm giving in. This weekend my hubby and I are going out of town and even though we'll be doing a lot of walking, we'll also be eating out, so I'm going to try to make reasonable choices and not go overboard. I will get back on track, I just hope I don't gain 10 lbs before that happens.

I hope everyone has had a great week so far!

TGIF!! It's been long week and I'm ready for the weekend. Yesterday was emotionally draining, but I did well with my eating. I actually went kind of the other way and wasn't that hungry, but I ate mostly according to plan. Today I should be able to stay on plan as well. Friday's I always end up staying up too late then eating because I'm tired, so I'm going to try to break that habit today and just go to bed, even if it's 8:30. I'd rather get the sleep and wake up a little early, than binge eat to stay awake and watch junk on TV. I'm going to try to get a workout in when I get home too and maybe that will make me more sleepy. I seem to not want to eat as much junk after I've worked out, so that's another bonus of exercise. :)

We don't have any plans for the weekend, so I'm just going to try to get my normal weekend chores done, do some homework, and relax a bit. After this weekend we will be busy pretty much every weekend until after New Year's, so I've got to take the time to breathe when I can get it.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!!

05 November 2015

My morning has already started off poorly and I'm hoping that I can have enough strength not to eat my feelings today. I found out this morning that a previous supervisor of mine passed away. He was promoted a couple of years ago so he worked at a different location, but in the same area. He'd been battling cancer and had been cleared twice and the 3rd time it came back we all knew it wasn't good, but it's still a shock when the person is gone. Even being very sick he still came into work, even if only for a couple of hours. He loved his work and the people he worked with. It's just a sad day and I feel terrible for his children.

I'm not good with emotions, so it's hard for me to deal with them. I may want to cry, but hate for people to see me cry, because I was raised that you just don't cry or show emotion, ever. I'm sure at some point when others at the office are in tears, I will be too, but I won't be the first to break down. I am always awkward in these situations because I never know what to say, then I crack a joke because I'm uncomfortable, and hold the tears back for when I'm in private. My goal is to get through this day without leaning on food for emotional support. :(
