Well again it is Friday and I am off. I must admit it is nice only working four days a week. Even though I must push harder to have all my work done in four days.
Yesterday I was quite upset. Talking with my daughter, she made a comment that really hurt. I am trying to keep in mind that she at times gets very stressful, especially with the wedding. Anyhow, I held onto that feeling. With that feeling I wanted so much to eat but I didn’t. Spoke to her again late last night and things are somewhat better. I know at times we all say things not meaning to hurt another but it does happen. It is just at these times I feel I try to do as much as possible for them and they just don’t care. Then I also try to reminisce about times with my own Mom. Wishing that things that I said I could take it all back. I know that this is a new phase of my life that I need still to adjust, meaning that they are on their own. The relationship between me and my daughter is good, but kind of wish it was better. She is one tough cookie to deal with at times. Then that is the way she is, lump or like it.
One piece of good news that I am excited about, is that I picked up my dress for the wedding. The dress is so pretty. I can hardly wait to get it altered and fitted just right. I just hope I can pull it off wearing it. Below is a picture of it, only thing is that mine is a cranberry color. The wedding is in October. A complete fall theme.
Unfortunately last night there was no TOPS meeting because of the heat. Our meeting place is at an older church parish hall and there is no air-conditioner. Plus being closed up, well the heat is intense. So I was unable to get weighed in. I will just have to wait until next Thursday.
Oh and next week I will be going to
Well I finished cleaning up the kitchen and need to move on.
Tonight I will be meeting with my daughter at the bridal shop. Her dress has come in and she is going to check it all out. Time is ticking and the wedding will be here shortly.
Oh and before I forget, I did a little reading about grain free on Gwen’s blog. I still want to read some more. Hopefully maybe I will get some time after the bridal shop.
I am still using the visual about me being in a circle eating like crazy as I am also outside the circle watching all of this. So far it is helping me NOT to eat out of emotion. I read today in Holly’s blog about when a situation comes up to do a 180 turn reaction. I am going to try to remember this also. All these great tips I am trying to hold onto. Anything and everything helps. These people and God are guiding me, which I am grateful.
