Mother of sick child

My girl is sick today so we are home. It is so nice that I can work from here and not really get behind. My calls can be forwarded to my cell phone and I can log onto email from home. It makes me wonder why I have to go in as much as I do. The answer is, I don't but I think employers think that being there all the time is important. I think I get more done by not being there. I use my time so much better when I don't have the distraction of co-workers.

I also like being here for my child when she needs me. That is why my goal is to keep moving forward with trying to start with being a real estate agent. I imagine putting Emily on the bus in the morning, working on my lap top to do marketing, look at trends, write newsletters and search for the perfect home for my clients. I imagine showing homes in the evening when Scott is home to be with Emily. I am going to keep working toward my goal. I am working on networking now and will keep moving toward my goal. I am also working on getting my finances where I can do what I want to do too.

In the meantime, I am just home with Miss E. She isn't that sick luckily. She will be back on her fee tomorrow, I am sure.

On the go

I escaped the office for mental health reasons and I think it is for the best. I am still beat but I do feel better. This is the first time I am blogging from my phone. I am grabbing a bite at Starbucks which I think is a good choice for healthy on the go food. I am eating a Bistro Box, the Goat Cheese and Garden veggies variety. I am also enjoying a sparkling water.
Here are the stats on the Bistro Box:
220 calories
10g fat
3g fiber
6 Points

Not too bad for a little lunch!

Bad night = bad morning = grumpy!

Last night was really great and then the night time came. I couldn't sleep to save my life. I was up until 2:30am! This made me very, very crabby. So now, I am crabby today. Boo. I did have a good dinner last night. Fajitas! Yum. They had chicken, peppers (green and red) and onions.

Chicken Fajitas (2) = 10 points
8oz glass of water = 0 points
Dinner Total = 10 points

I ended the day pretty well. BUT, then I was up way to late. I thought maybe a little food would put me to sleep. So I dug into Mr. B's ice cream. I didn't even like the way it tasted, it was such a waste!

Peppermint Candy Ice Cream = 4 points
Middle of the night total = 4 points

All and all, not the worst food day but not good either.

I am going to get out of the office now because I don't want to rub my crabbiness off on others. Hopefully, I can perk up.

Too full for lunch

It is 1:00 pm and I still feel full from breakfast, because I ate it so late. Darn. I am going to try to force some intake because eating late will just force me to not want to eat dinner.

I just can't seem to eat breakfast early. I will work on it some more. Here's what is happening for lunch.

16 oz of water = 0 points
Baby Carrots = 0 points
Lean Cuisine Sesame Chicken = 9 points
Total for lunch = 9 points

I have some lemon yogurt for a snack later but I don't know that I will be able to stomach more food. It is weird that I am supposed to be on a diet yet I have to force myself to eat more. I had gotten in this bizarre habit of eating one HUGE meal per day. Seems like it might make you lose weight. It doesn't. At all.  Not to mention it wreaking havoc on your body, bad for your blood sugar, all around bad plan. I am trying not to do that anymore.

Fall is here

It feels like Fall for sure today. Here is what I had for breakfast:

10 oz glass of water = 0 points
1/2 banana = 0 points
Smart Ones Breakfast quesadilla = 5 points
Coffee with creamer = 1 points
Breakfast total = 6 points

I think I could make a better quesadilla. The cheese tasted really fake and like what you would get on nachos at the movies or something. The points value was good though.

I think what most of us strive for in life is satisfaction. I think that happiness is derived from that. I try hard to be satisfied. In my life that means trying to find a balance. I always feel super out of control of my life. I am working towards calm though. One thing that gives me satisfaction is having a clean, well-run home. Also, having a happy husband and child. I also stive to have a peaceful calm in my heart. That is what brings me satisfaction. I don't always achieve all that I want. I am getting better every day though and that is what counts if you ask me.

Sun day

Yesterday was glorious here! When the weather is nice in WA it makes you really appreciate it. Yesterday was spent enjoying some things that make Spring wonderful like this :

And the dinner of this:

Today is equally gorgeous and I am about to try to get out there and enjoy some more sun and get my vitamin D!
