By that I mean I don't track anything on here..but I'm mindful of what I eat and my exercise. I've maintained my weight..which I'm happy about...that's really the final goal, maintain without continually tracking... but, I want my weight to be lower and my body to be more toned and in shape. I also want to give back...encourage others the way you have encouraged me. I really have no plausible excuse...except that I'm being a bit selfish....taking care of me... something I have only learned to do in recent years..but I know I should support those of you who take the time to comment, email and post on my wall, and those that just post a blog and need some encouragement. I'll get there but as I've been telling others... "take care of you so you can be there for the people who need you." But I do want to thank you for not abandoning me completely.
On the bright side.. I began my new position this week. It's been an exceptional week for me. I'm just doing what I do and I'm getting accolades for it! Yay me!!! lol The increase in salary is not substantial enough to alleviate some, well most of my stress. But I'm hopeful. I have a saying posted in many places where I can see it everyday, "Karma...it's a beautiful thing!" To me it' s about the good things i do. I don't look for or expect rewards..... but I do the right thing and I strongly feel the rewards will come to me.
My mom and dad... a few months ago they gave my dad about 3 weeks to live....He's still here. I'm grateful he's so stubborn! lol But I think part of it is he's holding on for my mom. She's deteriorating at a rapid pace. Her mind is going... Alzheimer's .. and the two of them are just so thin! I know they eat well..the staff makes sure of that..and my dad is a nighttime snacker,.. always was. But they don't eat a lot. I try to bring their favorites when I visit...have to make my zucchini bread soon... the thought of turning the oven on in this heat....I don't care if my air conditioning is on..it's still way too hot for me.
I'm planning to get out and go dancing on Saturday... I haven't been out much as funds are low. But in spite of it all I'm still smiling! Taking it one day at a time. That's all you can do.
Stay strong and true to yourself my friends. Only YOU can make it happen..and i know you will.
Thought this next one was quite funny...
