October 8 ,1988

So forever lasted just about 22 years. I don't know how I feel this week. Comfortably numb? Looking back, this was the happiest day of my life...and I don't think that will ever change.

Fake it til you make it...

That was advice from a dear friend today...but today I couldn't even manage that. Truly a sucky day all around. I don't even want to talk about it. Just going to bed and putting the day behind me.

Talk to you all tomorrow.

Sundry Sunday

Not much to say today, had a headache and stiff neck and shoulders most of the day, I must have slept crooked last night - during the little sleep I did get.  Last night ended up being quite emotional for me, with lots of thoughts going through my head and they kept me awake and contributed to my low mood today.

I got what I needed to get done, done...then met my friend Shelley for coffee while waiting to meet my son this afternoon. It was a nice time and it did me good to get out of the house for a bit.

Eating was ok, not great - but I did eat two meals today, considering I didn't get out of bed til 11, that's not too bad and I am just ready for bed now and hoping to sleep better.

Exercise,  I didn't feel like walking today so I did 20 minutes of crunches, squats and some arm work. It's better than nothing.

I am looking forward to reading Melissa's post but am just too tired to wait up for it, so I will see it tomorrow morning.

Niters all!

Hello everyone!

I didn't blog yesterday, (sorry Mel, no good excuse except I was just so tired and wasn't feeling like booting up the laptop...lame I know!), but I am doing well for Syl's challenge....2/2. Yesterday I went for a 20 min walk and today I walked/ran up and down our stairs for 22 minutes.

Eating wise...I did better today. I ate 3 whole meals, real, home cooked meals complete with vegetables!!!  Still need to work on the two snacks but the three meals is a huge improvement over the last few months. Baby steps, right?

I got a lot done today in the apartment as well, organized closets last night and today and unpacked a few more boxes and organized my bedroom a little more. I love my new bedroom. It is so perfect for me :) I have a friend who is a photographer and I love all his photos, I want to get one blown up to 20 x 30 for my living room wall but having such a hard time deciding which one....do I want a nature shot or something more artsy? The apartment is starting to feel like home. It's tiny compared the townhouse but its compact and cozy and easy to keep clean and neat which is a huge stress gone.

No plans for tomorrow, I have to go out to Milton to pick up my oldest from his girlfriend's house and I will go for a walk in the morning.
