Dawn--good for you for the mind-shift. You know, you don't have to be at this place forever, you just choose for a variety of reasons to be there for now. Take what you need and try to disengage from the rest. Have you heard of WorkItDaily.com or its founder JT O'Donnell? It's a career coaching site. I've used it for my last two job searches and found it super helpful. You can buy individual classes one at a time for about $100 each, or you can subscribe for $30 a month. She frequently offers specials to discount it to $20 a month so I encourage you to wait for those. Then you can hoover up all of the content in about 30-60 days and cancel. But, honestly, they provide coaching with the subscription and it is invaluable. You can ask specific questions about your situation or your resume or an ad you saw online or something that's going on at work and she will give you specific, direct feedback. I had a problem at my last job and asked her about it and she really helped open my eyes to what actions I needed to take. If you can't afford, you can follow her on linkedin and find her content on youtube. She's fantastic.
Sara--that sounds like A LOT of NSV's all rolled together. Congratulations! You are sticking with it and it's paying off! FrenchFancy and I are committing to lace up our sneakers, can we rope you in to getting your stroll in?
FrenchFancy--OK, lace up those snickers! I did do 10 minutes on the exercise bike last night because I committed to you to do so. And I'm glad I did, even though I clock-watched every minute of it! Thank you. I commit to 10 more tonight. I know it will get easier. Maybe I need music or something. I need to start somewhere, right?
As for me, stressful day ahead at work. I need to stay focused!
OK, waving hi to all who follow. Have a great day everyone!

lots of posts since last i was on here! wow!
first, want to let you know that while my ultrasound showed large fibroids, the ovaries looked normal. Gyn wants me to come back in a few months to see if fibroids have grown and see if they may be reason for weight gain & pelvic pain.
am on steroids, muscle relaxers, and prescription pain patches for my back/hip. dr thinks it is an acute muscle spasm or muscle injury. i have never had issues with my back before. i feel like such a wimp because people have worse back issues and they deal with it every day and here i am feeling like i cant do anything! holiday weekend i literally did nothing but eat, take meds, and sleep. thought back was getting a tiny bit better, only to accompany DH Tuesday and DD on Wednesday to various doctor appointments. waiting room chairs are NOT comfortable! back feels all aggravated and painful again. a co-worker was kind enough to let me use his heating pad at work today. going to ask dr about getting referral to see phys therapist to see if the muscle can be manipulated into releasing/relaxing. i have a Jeep ride this weekend that I am not looking forward to. sad, because i ALWAYS get excited over taking the Jeep out but just getting in and out of a lifted Jeep is a bit of challenge right now.
DH has been pouting since i hurt my back. i kept telling him to go on different Jeep excursions over the holiday weekend but he refused, saying he didn't want to go without me, then sat and pouted all the time because i wouldn't go out or do anything. (the family trip cancelled do to uncle getting sick) he was very annoyed with having to walk slow when we went to his doctor appointment. since he is home all day (self employed), he wants to go out as soon as i get home. all i want to do is stay home and rest.
have not been eating well. its all prepackaged, processed stuff because i don't feel like standing in kitchen cooking. heat & eat has been the menu for going on 2 weeks now. its getting old, plus negatively impacting my weight.

Good morning All~~
Today will hopefully be not-so-bad weather-wise, what with Dorian coming to pay North Carolina a visit. I am hoping that all we see in Chapel Hill is a little rough wind and some thunderstorms and rain. Crossing fingers.
The past two months have been a tough time for me, and the weight is going up instead of down. It's the mental stress of unwanted life changes. I am facing the reality that it's time to end it with DH.
I seem to feel hungry so often....I'm actually just needy.
I felt I should give you all an explanation of why I cannot seem to stay on program.
Here's a bit of a longer quote I lifted from Tara Brach:
".....suffering arises when, due to unmet needs for love and safety, our desire becomes fixated on substitute gratifications."

So far I am using my roll on almost every day at work to keep my claws in. I think it is the Clary Sage but it smells like good spa mud.
