57 Another monday...

Sunday, September 30, 2012

We did our last show yesterday, beautiful weather, beautiful audience and I am very happy that it is over because I was tired and it is not fun at all that it is another monday and I have to reload and do a full week of intense work before it´s weekend again.

The situation with daughter transformed in to a SMS quarrel, I would laugh at the silliness if my daughter had not been involved and I know the result will be that she will try even harder not to cause any trouble... poor thing. Ont the good side she did a wonderful performance yesterday and excelled wih her hula hoop and was very happy about that until the SMS started beeping. I followed program - which means that I said a prayer for ex as the sick person he is, I phoned an OA friend and told about my feelings and I turned outwards, I made silly gifts to each person in our ensemble and it was fun.

And during the SMS quarrel I also did 30 minutes of hooping emoticon I had no time in the morning and had it not been for the weekend challenge I would have missed exercise yesterday. My sister got a hoop for birthday (she had wished one) and triumphally messed yesterday that she did 107 laps! On her birthday, friday, she managed 50 at the most, she is progressing fast! For birthday she also got a challenge sheet from me lasting two months with daily chores and points, I have used the BLC examples as foundation for making that challenge. My sister is my big sister and very competetive, I quiver at the thought how much work this will be to me - but it was a good thing for the sister because she so obviously got cheered up and thought it was fun! The challenges are to drink 8 glasses of water, to do 30 minutes of exercise, to meditate for ten minutes, two meals according to plate model, two healthy snacks... and then three times a week visit the gym (she has a free membership throguh work) call sister and make a grateful list... if I know my sister right she will go for full points each day... it will be good practice to me to try to stay balanced and ditch the "perfect" attitude and go for good enough even with a very competetive sister breathing down my neck.

Right now I have a tough monday to manage... daughter is going by bus early this morning - that caused all the trouble with ex - and I have a lot of articles to fix and things to book and overall a lot of work.

But food is planned, gym is on and all i all I will do fine - I hope...

    Cecilia - you are one terrific sister! Not only did you give her a hula hoop, but you passed on what you learned to help another. And you are feeding on her competitiveness to get her healthy! It's great you gave her the tools.

    Yes, knowing sisters and her being the big sister, she will want to win. She will keep you on your toes. Look at that. You now have a built-in exercise buddy! How can you not lose the weight now! LOL.
