don't panic

Well I sure missed my walking buddy this morning. I just got off the treadclimber and I worked up a good sweat. It wasn't the same. It seemed harder than just walking outside. Plus I miss the opportunity to visit with someone before I come into this lonely office. I just need to get into a new routine. I love routine. Food was good yesterday, though H20 not so good. Progress not perfection!~

My daughter was back to freaking out again yesterday. She isn't sleeping ( and she is a sleeper ) plus she has to give up smoking and her caffeine. Being my child, she of course decided all of that MUST happen in one day. She is feeling totally over whelmed. She has a good doctor and she told her to relax, cut down, and cut back. They don't want her to wear the nicotine patch either. She had to come into town, a 30 min drive, twice yesterday to see the doctor. I am glad I can be there for her. I drove the kids around town looking for quack quacks and airplanes for an hour while she went into the doctor. She is a smart girl and she will figure all this stuff out. Best to stand back and watch. I have found that people don't like to be told what to do, especially your kids!

Looking forward to book club tonight. I best get to work! Katie J. thanks for the poem. It was great!

Keep the mood and the food real!........don't panic

  9. Your poor daughter - I remember when I got pregnant quitting caffeine cold turkey - can't imagine adding nicotine withdrawal to that mess. Keeping her and you in my thoughts.

  10. Withdrawals are no fun, no matter what they are. Hope she gets through it all okay :)

  11. Sounds like she's going through some tough stuff. All you can do is be there for her and help with g-kids.

    She's so lucky to have you for her mom.

    I wish I had had someone like you for my mom. *sniffle*

  12. Of course the Treadclimber is harder than just walking. It's meant to be. So it's good that you're doing that and walking 'cause you don't want your body to stop responding to one type of exercise.
