The Simple Woman's Daybook....

Today…Monday, November 24, 2008

Outside My Window…it is cool and damp. The wind is blowing. It is overcast, and the smell of snow threatens.

I am thinking…of everything I have to do this week. I need to get it all written down, so I don't go crazy trying to remember everything.

From the learning room…I need to pick up some black thread so I can try to put a skirt back together. I took it apart to use it as a pattern for another one.

I am thankful for…my husband and my children.... I am truly blessed

From the kitchen…a sink full of dishes beckons to be washed.

I am wearing…jogging pants and a T-shirt.

I am creating…a new skirt

I am going…to leave in a little while. I am meeting a friend for a workout and then home to get ready for volleyball games tonight.

I am reading…just my Bible....seems all I have time for lately

I am hoping…Johns work schedule gets back to normal soon.

I am hearing…Kayl watching Enchanted. I can't believe he likes the movie.

Around the house…it looks like I’ll never catch up. I need to better prioritize.

One of my favorite things…having coffee with friends.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: volleyball games today and tomorrow, volunteering at Darvi's school on Wednesday, Thanksgiving with friends on Thursday, and hoping some Christmas shopping gets done this weekend.

Why does it have to be such a struggle?

Why does my battle with food have to be such a struggle? I do so good sometimes, and then others, it just goes out the window.

I have a few friends that don't struggle with it and then I have friends who do, so I know I'm not the only one that can struggle with it.

I wish I could hate it....I wish I wouldn't let social settings run my attitude that it gives me a good excuse to eat.

I've been paying Weight Watchers to help me lose this weight, but here lately it seems I've been forking over the money for nothing.

When I was in high school, I didn't really have to worry about what I ate...I was active in sports, I had 3 horses to ride, and a very physical job, so it wasn't an issue.

Now my body has changed so much and it gets harder and harder the older I get. I'm turning into a new decade in a month, no I'm not looking forward to it, but its awakening a new sense of I'm getting older and weight loss isn't getting any easier.

You would think being a stay at home mom, I would have all the time in the world to work out and take care of myself. I don't. I guess maybe its just time for me to step up and say I need time for myself, but then that does seem selfish when there are other people needing me.

So for now...I just struggle. and then I don't. and then I do.
