Taking care of our home. It's just too much anymore.

Being patient with getting our house and yard "fixed". Both need a lot of work, and I want it done now, but contractors think they have all the time in the world to get it done! Patience!!

Being patient with DH not sharing my vision for what he/we should be eating to be our healthiest.

Life is a journey, not a destination. Enjoy the moments.

Commitment can be explained by by comparing it to a bacon and egg breakfast. The chicken was involved...the pig was committed.

Friendship divides our sorrow and doubles our joy.

Family dynamics and drama as we getting closer and closer to my daughter's wedding in two weeks! I am determined to not let anyone take away my joy of that day! She is almost 50 and has never been married. Neither she or I ever thought we'd have the opportunity of experiencing the wedding planning process. But here we are and I am going to "chill out" and not take the bait on the drama and just Keep Sparking! So grateful for this team and a safe place to vent! Hugs!

I'm struggling with staying on track. I start the day off on a the good foot and after lunch it just all goes down hill.

A huge part of losing weight is believing you can do it and realizing it's not going to happen overnight.

I'm kind of struggling with life in general right now.
-- Caring for my 90-year-old father
-- Inadequate retirement income
-- Turning 65 and feeling like I haven't accomplished very much
-- Inability to stick to healthy goals, keep the house clean, or tame the paper tiger
-- Very little patience for dealing with idiots and people who don't do their jobs
-- Losing friends and important pieces of my support system

The other night I had a dream that my car was stuck in reverse and there was no brake pedal.

The good luck charm I keep on my rear view mirror literally came unglued.

I want to throw a temper tantrum. I want to stay home and sulk. I want to escape into sweet creamy food and salty crunchy food. But know it won't do any good.

Some of this stuff is basic Life, some of it is situational, practically all of it is temporary. Just get through it, hang on to the positive, and do the best I can with self-care. The gyroscope WILL right itself and I WILL feel more like myself again.

But right now I am struggling.

Can't seem of stick with my "good" eating. I fell back into my old patterns when I hurt my knee and couldn't exercise, etc., and it's been so hard to get back on track.

I strayed from my diet plan about 10 days ago and I am struggling to keep my focus on the proper foods. It takes me a while to ease back on track but it is so frustrating that I allowed myself to eat something off plan in the first place!

Remembering that sugar makes me feel bad. Always. Just a little bit leads to a little bit more and then a little bit more and then my stomach hurts and I have no energy. I can't get away with it, so stop trying, it will win.

Insomnia and lack of motivation to exercise. They go hand in hand. I just keep trying to do better each day. I win some, I lose some - and some days I'm just "OK". And I've learned that it's OK to be OK.
