Today's DEHRT

More to come....
"The past does not define us, the present does" Jillian Michaels
Discovered a WONDERFUL website, it has a lot of great tips on it, as well as talks about an Emotional Eating Bach Essences kit which I picked up the essences for yesterday, I must say I think it is already helping, normally when I stress I eat, eat, eat, and drink TONS of Diet Coke (with splenda) well today I am remaining calm and not really obsessing about eating my stress away.

Exercise: Planned: WATP DVD

Housework: Goals for today:
1 load of dishes
Put up christmas tree
1 load of laundry put away and folded

Taking care of me: Discovered Bach Essences, and OMG what a difference, the past few days have been extremely stressful with work, have had a few 'fires' with complaints I've had to put out, normally this TOTALLY stresses me out and I am on edge, but the combo of essences I am taking TOTALLY are helping me remain calm. Like this morning Rob was late with the car, so therefore I wasn't able to leave by 6:15 which is my normal time I leave for work by, normally I get pissy, and agitated, and I was able to just take it all in stride. YEAH!

My DERHT Challenge

I have been REALLY REALLY bad about drinking all my water lately, relying a lot on Coke (regular not diet) so add that to the BLOAT and #, and lack of losing weight
1- Drink my water 110oz per day (which is about 1/2 of my body weight)
2- Cut the carbs, I eat way too many of them, and my body doesn't process them right
3- Prepare meals night before (breakfast/lunches) for work days
4- Lose 6# before January 1, 2010 (2# average loss per week)

1- 5 Days a week
2- Variety so I don't get bored

1- Read Scriptures Daily
2- Attend Church Weekly
3- Be my hubby's missionary

1- End the Chaos (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome) by starting FlyLady again
2- Scoop Kitty Litter boxes daily
3- At least 1 load of dishes per day until caught up
4- Actually Hang up & fold the clothes so Rob doesn't have to go laundry basket treasure hunting to get dressed for work

Taking care of me:
1- Take pills 2xday
2- Daily Shower
3- Daily put on makeup (I hardly ever wear it anymore)
4- "Me" time at least 1x week (bubble baths etc).

Inspirational: Woman won't let disability keep her from weight-loss goal

Wow! What a story...she is paralyzed from waist down yet still goes to the gym and has lost weight! - Woman won't let disability keep her from weight-loss goal

Long see....

First off, I must apologize for my absence. I am not the worlds greatest blogger, and we are heading into winter now, I suffer from depression and it can be worse in the winter times. I am not too thrilled with my weight as of late, I am up to 220#, I was diagnosed with Aspartame poisoning in October, yep that artificial sweetener that is in Diet can cause MAJOR problems, I now have an 'aspartame' detecter in my pinky, any time I eat/drink anything with aspartame in it, my pinky finger tingles. It was in my pinky finger/ring finger and part of my palm on the right hand. The Dr scared me to death telling me that aspartame has been linked to MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and MS type symptoms. I have had maybe 1 or 2 actual diet cokes or coke zero's since I found out, which is MAJOR for me, I am still drinking soda, but not as much and trying to stick to regular coke (not good for calories) or diet coke sweetened with splenda. So if you are a diet soda drinker.....use caution! I was actually having extreme side effects from one of the depression pills I am on (neurontin) as it is a nerve drug, and my nerves were on edge from all the aspartame I was drinking....pretty scary stuff.

My Uncle Larry passed away a little over a week ago, he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer the end of august. It was hard, but I am comforted with the knowledge that I know I will be able to see him again someday, and that he is with my Grandfather and my Aunt Lorna (whom died before I was born). My Grandpa died when I was a senior in high school, I actually lost 3 of my grandparents in 1 was tough, and I really haven't lost anyone super close to me since (1995).

Anyways I just wanted to pop in and say, yep I am alive! I finally updated my blog it is no longer halloween time :-) I hope to be able to blog again soon.
