Pity Party Over (for now at least)

With working long hours, overtime,  and  having some pain in the neck health issues, I've been feeling down on myself.  I've had a bit of a pity party all by myself and felt sorry for myself. I think we all have those days (or weeks) at time I'm sure.  Some times life gets to all of us some times and we feel the weight of our earthly body giving out on us.  My get-up-and-go-had-gotten-up-and-went. Thankfully, it didn't last long. Just long enough for me to stop exercising and dancing and eat a big plate of whole wheat pasta with sauce.  It was very good and full of carbs.

So yesterday afternoon I got "My Scottish Up"  and decided that I was not ready to give in so I am back on the fight.  I made myself and Hubby some Coffee Frappuccino and got back on the treadmill.

Low Carb Caramel Frappuccino.

1 cup brewed coffee
several ice cubes
Sugar Free Caramel Syrup
Heavy cream

Place it all in a blender and blend it away, pour into a tall glass and enjoy! 

Our lives here on this earth will always be filled with down days, health issues, money woes, and all sorts of reasons to have a pity party.  It's OK to have that for a little while, but each of us has to get up and dust ourselves off and begin again. God has given us the strength to conquer all of this.

How about you, ever feel blue? What did you do?


  1. I feel blue often. Usually from being overwhelmed. Luckily it doesn't last long. Glad to hear you got your giddy up and go back!

    Enjoy your day!

  2. I have "those days" from time to time, especially when "Uncle Arthur" is paying me a visit. In fact, this past weekend was like that. Thankfully, I'm back on track now, too! My motto is "really enjoy the good days, and then just tolerate the bad ones---they will pass."

  3. Ever feel blue? You bet I do! Glad your feeling better and getting back on track. ((HUGS))

  5. Pity parties are great as long as they don't happen too often, the frappaccunio looked like a good way to end it!
    I loved the cards you made, you have an artistic eye they are beautiful.
    You couch looked in fantastic shape for being over ten years old, I thought it looked pretty in your living room.

  6. Having suffered from depression for 20+ years, I can honestly say I have felt "blue". Getting up and moving always helps you feel better. Glad you aren't letting it get the best of you!

  7. We all suffer from the "down in the dumps" feelings from time to time ... glad you got the better of your feeling blue rather than the other way around. ;-)
