just do it

I have so much I want to accomplish in my life. I could make a list here, but I won't, because that's not the point. The point is I want to actually SEE these things HAPPEN, not just dream about them. I posted a similar post recently.

One of my major hold backs is that I feel I never have any time! I am a very, very, very busy person. But am I a productive person? Am I busy with stuff that is going to project me toward my goals? Or am I just busy?

These are the thoughts that have been going through my mind. I started googling about time management and I googled and googled and googled and before you knew it, about 30 minutes had passed. Uh huh. Ding, ding, ding, I spend too much time READING ABOUT and PLANNING and figuring it all out................instead of just doing it. thought for tonight: JUST DO IT.

Seriously, Amy.


In other news, I took mom to run errands today and my daughter to the library and my son for shots.... we drove through and got a hamburger and an ICE CREAM on the way home. When I got home, I was SOoooooo beyond drained. I couldn't keep my eyes open. This was just beyond a sleepy feeling. This was a "I MUST sleep" feeling. I recently found out I am prediabetic OR diabetic (depending on who you ask), so I'm wondering----was that feeling from the ice cream? Or has my sleep deprivation caught up with me?

I don't know the answer there but by God's mercy, the baby fell asleep and I put him in bed with me and we slept an hour and a half!!! When I woke up............I felt terrible. I wasn't as sleepy but I felt yucky. I took my blood pressure and it was high.


I need to get ME repaired. I need to be healthy. I'm working on it......falling on my face a lot.........succeeding a lot in and day out. I WILL OVERCOME.

Thursday 10/23

No exercise. (Dare I say I was busy again?)

2 servings fruits and veggies

approx 60 ounces of water

58 calories BELOW my limit


  1. Yeah if you're diabetic or pre-diabetic (I'm pre-diabetic but getting better) you are probably going to react badly to a big dose of easily-absorbed carbohydrates, like ice cream on top of the heavily-processed bread in the hamburger. It makes me tired, dopey and irritable.

    I just did a search for the carbs in a random fast food burger and ice cream (not knowing what you actually had) and it could have been as much as 85 grams of carbohydrate. That is way above the upper limit of what dieticians say a diabetic can have (mine suggested 45 grams in a meal, equivalent to 3 slices of bread). But many other information sources, like diabetes forums, say you shouldn't have anywhere near even that amount. You'll soon know, like today, if you are having too much.

  2. Sleep is so important. I am incapable of making a sound decision when I am overtired. I hope you are able to get some rest this weekend, but I remember what it was like to have kids as young as yours. Still, try to get a nap in if you can.
