where is the motivated girl

I work up a little down today...and so far my work day has been peaceful as I try to create my TO DO list and manage the things I have to get done... i found myself in the McD's drive thru this AM with plans to do it again at lunch..grrr....I will get something healthier however I just need to kick this funk i'm in... I purchased some St Johns Wort tuesday and hadn;t opened the bottle yet- I took a pill this AM-- maybe that will improve my mood...
I really hope your days are going better then mine... I just don't feel like myself!

At least the weekend's coming, though! I haven't had the best Firday either - somehow I always think they are going to be unfailingly good, but sometimes, not so much...hope everything gets better later on!

Wow honey... it's been a while since I checked up,and looks like you need a break!
What you said about censoring... I think you need to realize that we all do it, to some degree. Sometimes words are just not enough, and althoguh we all try to relate online, sometimes you end up saying a VERSION of what you feel. That's not necessarily bad. I feel I really get a grasp of your emotions, or at least how I can RELATE To those emotions, and you inspire me, and remind me that we're all human. Tha'ts why I love your blogs!

As for today, I understand how you feel, to some degree. Sometimes the things we have to do are ENORMOUS... if there's time, take 5 mins and just go outside and BREATHE. Sometimes that helps me. If there's not time, after work, take YOU time.. sit down, ignore the world and just blog, chat, facebook, whatever. Ignore everythign else. After a half hour, then you can speak to people... sometimes that's what I HAVE to do!

but this is just a day, this is just a small part of your life, and eventually this stress will be over. Weekend. Smile (your smile is so pretty!)!

Awesome on the 3lb loss... It's been a while since I saw something like that.. I'm on a teeter totter right now, up 1.8, down 1.8, etc. This exercise is messing me up!!

oh... and you're close with spelling..
it's 'anonomyous'!!! GOOD JOB!!!

Aw, I had hoped today would dawn brighter. I'll still think good thoughts for the weekend.

When I feel the need to do a drive through (and sometimes nothing else will do), I go for the McD's Yogurt Parfait or their Apple Dippers, though I barely use the dip part of the dipper. It's yummy goodness on the run. (I am not compensated by the McD's corporation, which doesn't know I even exist.)

You can totally do this. I hope today is going better. And if for some reason you are still in your funk, try acting as if you aren't. Do 1 thing that you would normally do if you weren't in a funk.

Take it one day at a time. Some bad days are unavoidable. Hope you have much more happy days than bad/sad days.

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
