Busy busy busy

Friday, October 25, 2013

Lately I have been busy busy busy!!! I have tried to keep up with food tracking but I have not always been consistent. I have not been interacting with my spark community either! emoticon I like my work and am happy to keep busy but I need to remind myself sometimes that this is something I do for ME - for my mental health, for my relaxation, for my support. Here's to trying to do it all emoticon

On a good note - according to my doctor I have lost 20 lbs in the last year! Woo Hoo!

Missing the Spark!

Thursday, August 29, 2013

So I have been unable to Spark at work and the computer at home was on the fritz and having a not so smart phone meant no Sparking!!! I have sorely missed this great community! But I am back online and raring to go!! I have been pretty good with both food and exercise and so have lost a few more pounds! (Better update my tracker!) But not as good as I should have been... I love the accountability the Spark community gives! Anyway - I am so glad to be back! emoticon

    Glad you are back to Sparkin'. I sure don't like losing my internet because I lose my connection to my Spark friends. I do have a Smartphone now so I can stumble along on it if necessary but my computer is more user friendly and it's big monitor is much easier on the eyes. emoticon Thank you for all the support that you give to me. emoticon

Listen to your body...

Friday, June 28, 2013

I was so tired yesterday. I could not stop yawning! The daughter and I went and did some errands and I got home earlier than usual. I could not keep my eyes open! I was talking to a friend and she said "it is your body trying to tell you that you need rest". Maybe... but maybe it is the depression trying to creep back... maybe I am just being lazy... So I figured a cat nap might be the best way to check... I even set my alarm for 30 minutes. I slept right through the alarm and only woke at 8:30 long enough to wash up and put my PJ's on. Then back to bed and I slept through until this morning. I feel great today! OK - so my friend was right. Sometimes we just need to listen to our bodies...

    I've been feeling the same way lately. I guess too much going on with both my kids graduating. I am exhausted! I guess I will try and rest this weekend to try and catch up. emoticon

    Listening to our bodies is great advice. Although it is a tricky line to toe...am I actually just tired or is it really something else? So glad to hear you feel great today!

Choose your Attitude...

Thursday, June 27, 2013

So I work for a school district and we are forever finding clever sayings to motivate staff and students. One such saying that has been recycled this year is "Choose your Attitude" Now this one has some merit! I was tired and getting grumpy yesterday and decided to just go home after work and go to bed. Choosing my Attitude but hoping to keep it to myself and not inflict it on others. I went home and took a nap but then decided that I would feel better if I made an effort. I got up and called to check on Gma and her moving updates, called Mom to check on sick Dad, and made a nice dinner for DD and I. We ended up having a nice relaxing evening together! It doesn't always work but more often than not its worth a try! Today I choose to be productive! How about you?

    Sometimes taking care of ourselves means listening to what we need - seems like that nap was just what the body ordered! Way to change around an attitude!

So glad you enjoyed your day.

Time...

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

It's harder to keep the momentum up to exercise when its hotter than hot! But I find myself eating more fruit and more salad and such which is great. I am back to the gym today after no gym for a couple of weeks. Sometimes its amazing how fast time gets away from me!

Then of course there is the time that drags along.... Last week was the longest of weeks for me. I finally got to go see my husband on Sunday so it felt like Sunday would never get here! Well it did!! I was so happy to be able to just spend some time with him - almost 6 hours! Which naturally, went by too quickly! I guess I never really realized how much we take time with our loved ones for granted until we don't have that time. Thankfully I will be able to spend more time with him now that he is closer to home!

    Yes - time can easily slip by - but it sounds like you are doing a pretty good job! So glad you got to spend some quality time together - it isn't always easy, I'm sure.

Hope you have a wonderfully successful week!

Sumay
