The weather is beautiful today. I wish I wasn't stuck in my office. My co-worker is taking a half-day so she just left. I'm watching her leave and feeling jealous! I feel like whimpering like a puppy. I.DON'T.WANT.TO.BE.HERE.
I signed up for My Fitness Pal and I am liking it so far. I used to use My-Calorie-Counter and it is pretty similar. It gives me so many extra calories when I enter my exercise. I don't plan on using them. Today it says I should be eating over 2,000 calories. Holy CRAP!!! I never eat that much. Just the thought scares me!
The scale hates me. I got on today just to torture myself and I was up even more than yesterday which is complete BOLLOCKS! There must be some water weight BS going on or something. I'm going to ignore it. I am eating just fine, thank you very much.
Thank you all for you support about my thieving daughter. I appreciate your ideas and suggestions and confirmation that we're doing the right thing. I know she's a good kid and I know she'll get over it. Honestly I never imagined how difficult parenting would be before I had kids. And it never occurred to me that I wouldn't know what to do so often. I do what I think is best, but I still see my kids making mistakes and suffering at times. I guess every parent comes to that realization.
Did I ever tell you about my friend and her two SUPER-KIDS? She has one daughter who is a soccer and basketball star. She plays both sports year-round and practices or has games (often multiple games) nearly every day. Their teams always win and they play up - compete against older children. The child is 9 and she is very smart and sweet, but I just can't help feeling sorry for how much pressure she's under. Their other child, an 11-year-old boy, isn't much of an athlete so they have steered him toward his interests which are drama and music. He plays piano and sings and just starred in a children's production of the Wizard of Oz. I love my friend very much. She and her husband are great people. I think I am jealous of how talented their kids are. My kids are just ordinary. My daughter also plays soccer, but her team loses sometimes. They've never been profiled on the local news. My friend also just got a new job working 1/2 time and she is earning almost as much as she was at her full-time job that she just quit. Working 1/2 time is my DREAM! I am happy for her, but I can't help wish that my own situation was different. And a tiny little bit of me wishes the daughter's soccer team would lose a game. Is that wrong? Is it less-wrong if I tell you that they have two kids that used to be on my daughter's team?
I think I need a fill, but I probably won't get one any time soon. I don't have the money for one thing. For another I have decent restriction, but I am preoccupied with food. Is getting a fill a valid treatment for food preoccupation? I seldom thought about food before my un-fill a few months back. I'm also worried about the acid reflux coming back.
So I guess that's about it. I hope it is sunny where you're at. And I hope you can get out to enjoy it!
