Getting My Life Back and Starting Over

Well, this morning we dropped my dad off at the airport. While I appreciate that he took the time to come and visit - 2 1/2 months is just too long. I felt so out of sorts. He was cooking dinners, I lost control over what I was eating....I felt obligated to be here.....Oy.

So, today I get my life back. I have decided to give the Core program a try. For one month. I spent some time this weekend going over what is on it. I try to eat core foods anyhow (or so I realised once I went over the list), but I really need a break from journaling. Somehow the idea of journaling just my exercise and 35 flex seems less daunting. I need to stop obsessing. It's exhausting and not productive. I also need to get to know my body better. Find my "ok, I'm full" point. Right now, if I have figured out my points, I eat all of it. I would never work out a 7pt meal and then leave some because I was full, because then I wouldn't know how to count it. This mentality that I have just sort of keeps my problems going. Eating when I'm not hungry. Anyhow, enough about food.

This week I'm curling in my first bonspiel. I'm kinda nervous and excited at the same time. It should be fun. The lunch we have tomorrow is a turkey dinner. That should be easy to work my way through. My friends that I'm curling with are also the bonspiel organisers - which means lots of helping out for me. I don't mind behind the scenes stuff, but tomorrow I have to work one of the desks. Which means talking to people I don't know. Yuk.

I watched Tropic Thunder yesterday. While I found some parts funny (in a Ben Stiller way), it had one part that actually made me sick to my stomach. Thank goodness I didn't go see it in the theatre! I never would have made it to the bathroom!

Well, people...I'm on my way to start my day. I expect to be blogging more now that my house is empty.

Have a healthy day!


  1. Enjoy your new core world. I wish I could convince myself to do the core plan.

  2. I know that you are thrilled to have you house back in order. And it sounds like you are ready to get back in the swing of things.

    The curling sounds like so much fun. I've watched it some and would love to see it live. I'm sure you will do fine in front of the scenes instead of behind of the scenes. Just think of thoes people you have to talk to as fellow bloggers. That aught to help. Because you can talk to us just fine.

  3. I have thought several times about giving Core a try but I don't know if I could figure out a way to cook for me and my family and stay core. Let me know how you like it.

  4. I didn't like Tropic Thunder at all. I always have my doubts about something written by, produced by, and starred by the same actor. But that's just me.

    Enjoyr your Core trial.

  5. No way would I have survived two and half months with a PARENT in the house. Nope, no way, I think I would've smoked!

  6. Good luck with Core. I can't wait to hear how it works out for you.

  7. 2 and a half months! wow... that is way too long. i think two weeks is too long!
