Action Jackson and the Blues

I've gotten a few emails from you sweet caring people wondering where I am and how I'm doing. Well, I'm here and am doing pretty good. I had gotten to a place where I just said to myself, "Enough talking, let's start doing...and putting this "talk" into practice." So that's why I haven't been posting as much. I've been "doing."

Last week I lost 2 lbs! YAY me! By just eating low fat, not snacking at night and not eating so many sweets and I didn't drink a Coke even once! I WAS trying to keep a calorie count everyday, but that was taking FOREVER so I decided not to calorie count, but basically just try to eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. It's worked for me in the past and really is the easiest thing I've ever done.

My house work has suffered some. I'm feeling a little blue. And when I'm blue, it's my house that tells on me. The laundry and the dishes are piled up, the fridge needs cleaned out, the baby's room is a disaster, the bathroom needs a good scrubbing, the floors need a good sweep and mop and we won't even mention the spare bedroom...EEK!

Although I have a lot going for me right now (on track with losing weight, new business, taking better care of myself), I still feel somewhat depressed. I don't know why I go through boughts of feeling down, but I think everyone does. On one hand, I can't tell you how amazing our lives are right now, and how I see God's hand in so many areas. It's an exciting time for me and my husband and every day seems to have new and exciting blessings. But on the other hand, when the baby goes down for a nap, I just want to crawl under the covers and hide. I feel so tired, uninterested and just down. I can't bring myself to do the things that I need to do because all I want to do is sleep. However, this isn't unusual for me and I don't expect it to last much longer. I think when spring rolls around, I'll perk up. Like I said, a lot of people feel this way this time of year.

So that's the past few weeks in a nut shell. I promise, I'm around, I'm still plugging away and I'm still progressing. You all keep me going though. So don't forget to send me emails to prod me on and hold me accountable. I need you!



  1. Hey Angie!

    I get this way too!
    I was feeling good today and reflecting on the times when I was so low I thought I would never get up. I remember that through the grace of God I was able to get through the day.
    I am here for you, {hug} Patricia

  2. Hey Angie!

    I think we all need to see some Sun! It has just been so cold and dreary for weeks. When the Sun did come out one day last week I went for a drive so I could feel the Sun shining on me. It was hard on my eyes since it had been so long since the Sun had been around my house! lol

    Also I would like to mention that if you are taking any allergy medicines you might want to google them to find out their side effects. I was taking Singular and I got to the point that I couldn't sleep at night but wanted to sleep all day. I would drive my son to preschool and then drive to a parking lot and sleep before I could go in to shop! It was that bad. I received an email warning about my medicine and after I read that I knew what was wrong so I quit taking it and I'm better now! I even had went to the doc and had blood work and tests done that cost $1,200 and found that I was healthy but couldn't figure out why I was so tired.

    Hope you feel better! And my house is a disaster right now too!


  3. I do honestly feel that it is that time of year...for all of us. Our kids have cabin fever like NO OTHER...and so do the parents. Spring is just right around the corner so it does help us get excited. An just remember regardless we have to take it one day at a time...all the time.

    Wanted to let you know I got your CD in the mail yesterday along with your sweet card. When I get a second I will have to look into your business. Thanks so much.

  4. my friend and I were just talking about this yesterday.. How we Christians walk around in so much bondage but that the bible says "whom He sets free is free indeed". so what in the heck are we missing?? I truly hope you feel His loving arms areound you and that He heal you in Jesus name~ so that you ( and I) can live in the freedom He died to give us!! xoxo LA
