Trying to hang in there

Monday, March 03, 2008

I have been logging onto NGUNS every day but the internet makes it extremely difficult to post ANYTHING. It stalls badly here at the park. But I keep trying... I noticed a lot of my team is quiet this week, a lot of them have been ill or had deaths in the family. I worry about them... They are such an amazing group of women.

I am still pluggin away. I don't have a scale anymore. We moved onto the boat and had to get rid of it. I work at the hardware store a lot of hours and then work on the boat. I try to jewelry but don't get much done lately.

I have been feeling ill for a couple weeks. My system hasn't been working right. I am making better decisions about food even though I haven't been able to log on here. I always choose grilled instead of fried now. I choose healthy food to cook if I can. I try to take walks and ride my bike when I can.

I am struggling with being on the boat, trying to adjust to it. I love it but there are things that are hard, too. But it IS better than that camper we live in. I have much more room to do my pushups and crunches for instance.

Just thought I'd check in while the internet was letting me.

    I know you`ll figure it all out, Kyla. You always have. Being spread so thin on time is very tough. And while you have more money coming in...the body tends to takes the biggest brunt of it, when the work hours keep creeping up. It`s wonderful to hear that you are squeezing in some exercise and still trying to eat better. Good for you!! As for the scale, or lack there of..I agree with the other persons suggestion of using one at the store. You don`t want to NOT keep tabs on your weight number, as the Oregon trip proved just how quickly those 20 pounds can pile back on. But just hang in there..spring is almost here and we ALL can pitch the winter coats and be outside and play again! {{HUGS}}

    I bet the hardware store has scales. Just use one once in a while. Our clothes and bendability tell us so much, but scales have their own language, and it's good to check now and then.
    Be gentle with yourself. Moving onto the boat is a huge step. I lived on one for almost 2 years, and I remember all the adjusting I had to go through- and I was a mear smear 21 years old! It can be just what you want- and still hard. Let yourself know that.

    My husbands dream is to live on a sailboat. Right now he has a 23 foot OLD boat that needs lots of work and I can't imagine living on it. I would love to talk to you about what it is like to live on a sailboat. Please private message me if you would be interested in talking about it. You hang in there!
