Hi everyone

I've not been around for a few days, for a mish-mash of reasons. I was away for a couple of days, combining a work trip with visiting a friend. It was great but I didn't eat well (or I ate too well, depending on how you want to look at it). Before that I was feeling quite emotional and fragile, and did have some bouts of binge eating. But I'm trying not to beat myself up over it, and also trying to remind myself that just because I've been off plan for a week or so (and the scales will be up on Friday), doesn't mean I can't get back to doing things right. So that's what I'm trying to do - back eating sensibly (most of the time), food logging on my blog and getting back to exercising.

Hope everyone is well and having a good Thursday!

C xx

Good Morning Gang!

have ya'll seen the national news? Ivan just will not go away! and is causing all kinds of weather warnings here today. I hope we get SOME rain bec we need it so badly, but they are saying we will have FLOODING LOL. wonder if Cin will get some rain in Dallas tonight?

Hey Clarrie - missed ya! glad you are back on track! we can't do anything about yesterday, only today! take it one day at a time girlie! you can do this!

Hey Leenie - sorry you're so busy at work! how are you feeling? are you getting better? I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. Both of my sons made me a beautiful birthday card and dh (who usually makes his own cards too) found me the most beautiful and perfect card! Got home and he was grilling steaks for us (so much for eating a light supper after eating out for lunch lol) and had the table set and a beautiful red rose in a glass vase sitting at my place. He gave me $100 to take with me on my trip to Branson with mom in a few weeks. I will have fun with that! Got lots of little goodies from family and friends, and so many nice wishes and email and posts from here. It was a special day for me! and I'm going out to lunch again today, but we are suppose to have grilled shrimp and steamed veggies, so that we won't be messing up our "healthy eating". hehe

Hey Liz - get some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's

Hope everybody has a blessed day!

hugs,
cathy

Good morning everyone

It's a beautiful day here today.....it was only about 8C when I got up......but it will warm up some.

I am tired today....went back to taking the 5-HTP.....just once a day....but I notice I seem to get sleepy.....even with just taking it just once a day.....so I will stop taking it.....again.

I have been waking up earlier now.....about 7.....am trying to go to bed around the same time.....have been feeling good....getting out more.

Last night DH & I went out for dinner to Boston Pizza......DS's GF's son turned 14 yesterday.....then we went back to their house for ice cream cake from Dairy Queen......so today I am back to doing my eating plan.

Lynnie & Cathy.....belated happy birthday!!!!!!!

Clarrie.....that is true what Cathy said.....yesterday is the past.......today is here......I also have trouble with eating.....sometimes binging......it makes me feel so bad.....even when I am feeling good.....some days I have have problems with eating.

April

Hey Ladies!

It’s been a while since I’ve last posted… been rather hectic here lately. I start classes today… boy I’m not looking forward to the stress!

TMK620 – Hi there! Welcome to the group. RSP stands for Resource Specialist Program. It’s basically a service that is provided to those students who have a learning disability or may even be children with behavioral or emotional problems, or mental ******ation. However, but they receive their primary education in the regular classroom. I’m not sure if that’s a mainstreaming law or if that’s just how the program was set up. I basically meet with my class at the beginning of the school year, get their schedules written down and then between myself and the other RSP Instructors we divide up the classes so that every student is covered. So I actually change periods with the students hehehe… I made a comment the other day that I felt like I was in jr. high again *grin*


Cathy – I got on some spiffy new clothes *grin* We took family Pics! I’ll post some for ya… um if I can… having problems with my website right now.

I get home today at 6:30 from class I got like a 90 minute break between class and work… it’s nice! Hehehehhe I just don’t wanna go to school :-P

I have to fix my website… they changed everything so I’ll post pictures later tonight….

I gotta run now tho…

I’ll be back later!

Unhappy Hello Ladies

Please keep me in your prayers. I'm feeling tired and run down, and I know it's not all physical. I'm clinically depressed, and I don't know what to do. My foot was re-casted again Tuesday, and it's going to be x-rayed and probably re-done in 2 weeks. I don't know how much longer this is going to go on. My ankle is healing very slowly. I know my depression is mostly circumstancial, and I don't know if medication will really help me at all. There's a lot going on that I have no control over-I'll just need to give it to the LORD.

Thank you for being here
