I just put that book on hold at my library, Myles. Need to read it. Have terrible time with not being happy in the "now", but always feeling like I need to be doing something, catching up, cleaning, etc., basically anything but sitting down with JoJo and playing a game. I annoy myself with this.
I am feeling really down on myself right now because I am overweight and I have been running and kickboxing and exercising like a madwoman for two weeks with zero weight loss. I just can't stop eating sugar and it is sabotaging any weight loss I might otherwise achieve. Anyone have any advice on how to quit the sugar cravings? It is ridiculous. I think I am self-medicating with it (used to be nicotine and caffeine, but now my only vice is sugar). I guess I have to go cold turkey, but that makes me so sad. I love candy so much. Anyway, we are going to Playa del Carmen soon and that last thing on earth I want to do is be seen in a bathing suit.
I'm sorry about your arthritis/tendinitis issue, Ashley.
I'm sorry about your job not seeing your worth, Ashley.
I'm glad you are feeling good about things Bridget.
Way to go Oscar for reading!
I'm sorry that Jesi is in such a rough spot, but I think that it is great she actually wants to tell you about it. I never would have told willingly.
Good for Bobbie on acceptance to the college!
Kate, I'm sorry you are having trouble with patience. Sometimes I just have to take a step back and say "Okay, this is a 3 year old human. What is my expectation of what a 3 year old human's behavior?" That usually shows me not only that I am expecting too much, but also how best to change my approach so I can achieve my aim. Sometimes it even works.
Have I left anyone out? I'm certain I have...
