mind your own business

Life is not fair. It's not suppose to be. As soon as I accept that the happier I will be. I have let something have control over me this past weekend. I hate feeling all resentful and hateful. It truly makes me sick to my stomach. Is the person that upset me, upset? HELL NO.

I almost have to laugh. I spent all weekend in a food/sleep fog trying to just check out of those feelings. I fixed a big pot of WW chili and that's what I ate all weekend. Minimize the damage. I could feel a food binge coming on, so I figured I could binge on good stuff as well as McDonalds, so I went the chili route.

I walked both mornings. This morning I was up and ready to go with my buddy. It felt good. I did make it to church Sunday and to my daughter's after church, so I guess it wasn't a total Just felt like it. It's been actually cold in the morning. 48 degrees this morning! Brrr!

I am sure I will show a gain tonight, but it is what it is. If I could hold to even 5 of the 7 lbs I lost last week I will be happy. Last week weigh-in was a gift! I went and did a little shopping over the weekend as well. I starting to feel like myself again. Whoever she is???? LOL.

Today I set my intention to not worry about what others do. I am going to live my life as best as I can today. I have to live with me and my choices. The most important person I have to please is myself. What others do is none of my business.

Keep the mood and food real.......mind your own business


  1. Out with the bad, in with the good. :)

  2. MYOB - truer words were never spoken. I love the setting of intention. You are so stinking smart!



  3. MYOB applies to me. One of the reasons I've cut waaaaay down on blogging. My buttons were being pushed all over the place and I was driving myself nuts being concerned about it all. NOMB.
    I'm happier being in my own little bubble not worrying about others and what they do.
    I love your last paragraph and agree with Roxie. :)
    Hugs to ya, Dana

  4. It was 17 degrees here this morning. And it's currently only at 42. You're right. Life isn't fair. But we always have the power to choose how we respond to all the unfairness. I'm glad you're feeling better today.

  5. Just stopping by from Roxie's to say hello. Our reading taste is very similar. I've got "Drown" sitting on my shelf to be read.

  6. Sorry to hear that you were in a bit of a 'fog' this weekend. Kudos to you though for recognizing it and knowing that you would be tempted to binge (comfort eat) and take steps to be surrounded by healthy foods.

    I'm trying to remember that when my life is spinning out of control, I can STILL have control of my eating. And that empowers me!

  7. There is nothing worse than getting po'd and the other person is blissfully unaware. Those are the best times to forgive and forget...or as I like to do, assign them some sort of terminal personality defect and use that as an excuse to feel sorry for Whatever works. Just read you reached onederland...congrats. I am almost there. I weigh in for the month tomorrow and I have no real clear clue as to what I weigh, here's to hoping.

  8. Good one on "To the Best of My Ability".And I would like to say that I'm living my dream of owning my own business and working from home earning equally or more than the regular jobs by using

    Leo- Own a new business
