wrote to son

Monday, October 07, 2019

I gained 3.8 # this week but not a surprise. I keep saying I'm ready to get serious but then slip much too often. I'm not giving up. I will never give up but lately I'm a bit disappointed in myself. Instead of two steps forward and one back it has been a step forward and a step back. At least I keep plugging away and it might be a lot slower but I will make it to goal.
I wrote my older son as I told him in first letter I would write at least once a week and it has been a week since sent last letter. So far no further letters from him but that is normal I think. But he will get another letter soon as forgot to tell him something funny his brother said. I hope he is getting letters from others so that he doesn't feel forgotten.
I went to the ballet bar class today and I did enjoy it but I'm not sure if the teacher wants us non-dancer types. Some people sing off key and are tone deaf and some people have no sense of rhythm. I think I might be all those things but I know for sure I have no rhythm..
My son went with his friend to see movie tonight with his friend. They are watching Joker and it looked like it was fairly empty. I am thinking of going to see Addams Family maybe Sunday afternoon. Asked and son isn't interested in going to see it.
I was sleeping good when I woke a little after 4 this morning. I thought I heard a noise but either I dreamed it or it was a one time thing. Still I feel like I got a fairly good sleep. I judge by if I can stay awake during the day or fall asleep while watching tv. It is about time to go pick up the boys from the movie and turn off tv and computer for the night. Plan to read some more. Hope all of you get a great night's sleep and have a wonderful Tuesday.

    Hang in there. You've been through a lot with your son going to boot camp and all. So, hopefully things will settle down and you'll be able to be more consistent. Sometimes life just is like that. Keep sparking!

    POSITIVEHOPE left a comment to which I can totally relate. I went to her page and read her bio. When I first joined Spark, I came across a post that talked about the Beck Diet Solution. There's a team here for everything, and there was a Beck team. I bought the book and joined. I forgot all this and was reminded when I read about POSITIVEHOPE. As I recall, the team became inactive, and I soon left. Anyway...if you haven't visited her page, you might want to stop by, she has some interesting items there. Maybe I need to find that book. It's crazy how this all works together on Spark.

    On a lighter note, I want to go see Adam's Family, too. We used to watch the tv version many years ago. John Astin was perfect as Gomez.

    Sorry for being so wordy. Found inspiration is a blessing. Have a nice evening. emoticon emoticon

    We all struggle with consistency on this journey. When that happens to me, I like to look over my healthy meal options and plan of those I like best. It helps keep me looking happily forward and spending less time looking back.

    Hope you find something that helps. Until then, hope you have the endurance of the champion you are.

    Hope the boys aren't too heavy when you pick them up.
