Garage sales today!!! YAY!!! I have never liked garage sales in all my 49 years, until last week. I've held two and hated both of them. Then we went to a couple last week to replace some of the stuff that we got rid of since I didn't think that I would ever own a home again and I'm in love. I spent about $100.00 at two of them. Fun, fun, fun.
I didn't make it to water aerobics yesterday. I went to the YMCA and had a panic attack in the parking lot. At least I made it that far! I'll keep trying.
My son and his wife are coming up from the cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) this weekend and I'm SO excited. We don't get to see them very often so this is quite a treat. And it's always fun to have extra people to cook for. I love to cook and I'm getting better at limiting my portion sizes.
1 C Raisin Bran Crunchy Granola with 1/2 C Skim Milk 6 Dried Apricots
Grilled Chicken wings Broccoli
Spinach Salad with veggies
I love salad for dinner. I like having my heavier meal in the afternoon and keeping it light later.
I know that you already know this, but missing doses of your meds is very dangerous! I understand that you're probably a bit scattered with the wedding coming up and all, but the meds have to be number one. We know that!
Another beautiful day today. I spent hours yesterday cleaning the sills and sashes of a bunch of the windows in our new house. I don't know that they have ever been cleaned. Bugs, mud, etc. Icky. Kind of a good workout all of the cleaning that I've been doing!
Tia, I am going to take your advice. I see my psychiatrist today and I'm going to ask him to up my Prozac.
It's going to be challenge eating today. We're going to a BBQ fundraiser for lunch and eating out for dinner. I'll have to stick with salad for dinner. Karaoke tonight and I'm looking forward to that!
Still struggling with my mood. Even though I added the prozac almost three weeks ago, my depression hasn't lifted. I thought that once the stress from the move was done, it would improve. Still trying to plod along. Sorry I'm such an Eeyore lately!
I'm working on getting my fridge and pantry stocked again. When we sold our home last year after deciding to snowbird every winter, we had decided to rent south in the winter and rent north in the summer. We discovered that it's too difficult not having a permanent address/residence so that's why we bought a house. The problem is that we had sold or given to the children pretty much everything out of our house: furniture, kitchen stuff, towels, etc. So restocking my house is a long process. I don't realize what I'm missing until I look for it
I do realize how fortunate I am to have a house and be able to get out of the northern Minnesota winters. I'm just venting. It's that Eeyore in me still.
I'm working very hard to eat well and for the most part I'm doing a good job. I've been losing about a pound a week. I've realized that I need to weight once a week instead of daily, at least until my depression lifts. The daily scale fluctuations don't help.
The move went like clockwork yesterday. We had a bit of help and that sure makes it easier.
We just have a few things to move today and our hanging clothes. We'll probably be spending the night in our new home tonight. It will be nice to be home after these five moves and renting for the past year.
I've maintained through the move which has been difficult. I'll get back into a groove soon and that makes me happy.
