...and it is not even Wednesday! Day three of my streak...10 minutes walking/marching in place and...wait for it...4397 steps! I think I underestimated how many steps I tend to take on an average day and how much I would have to work to bring it up to 800. I'll finish the week and see how i do, and I may step up to another team on the virtual tour.
Work has been crazy these last two days with one of my team members off for a well deserved couple of days vacation. I went in early yesterday and today, tired both days. Hopefully I will sleep better tonight.
Actually, I should sleep like a baby tonight, as I finally settled a long standing worry after work. After weeks of anxiety, and imaging the worst, I was thrilled and so very relieved that I, as usual, blew the whole thing out proportion in my mind. It went smoothly, quickly, and with lots of laughter.
So now, it is past my bed time as it has taken me 45 minutes to write this short piece. Now I know I am tired. *smiles* Once again, here is to day 3 of my streak. I can't wait to see how long I can make, but am content to focus on one day at a time.

Well, I walked home from work today. 1.5 miles in just under 30 minutes. For anyone else, a stroll...for me? Pretty darn good! 3467 steps...great second day!
I didn't sleep much last night, I was so wound up that I didn't get to bed until 11:00. I read for a while, turned off my light and just laid there. *sighs* I was up when my alarm sounded at 4:30 this morning. I got dozy at work but caught a second wind after lunch. After my walk, I am exhausted and all the chores I had planned may get done tomorrow.
I am gonna sleep SO well tonight! In the mean time, I guess I should have a light bite to eat and just a little tv time, then bed....my soft, welcoming, snuggly bed.

I almost hate to say anything, but I think my desire and motivation are making themselves felt again. I'm so tired of feeling hopeless...It is so not like me. I think this may be a result of my thyroid leveling out...or the whole new beginning of Spring...or...... What ever the reason ( I am so not going to try and figure out the whys and wherefores, I'm just going to DO IT!) I'm rethinking goals and making them a little more realistic and breaking them down into steps. Again, not over think and plan...I can spend hours planning and not doing. (Big problem for me!)
I joined the Bibblemun Track Virtual Trek found in Team Indy Girl. This should be a good start. Joined team 2, 800 steps and 10 minutes of exercise. I can do this. I'll post my progress...

I had a fabulous St. Patrick's day! I went with a friend to Fremont street and saw one of my favorite Celtic bands, and discovered a new favorite band as well! (I even bought a green and white boa to wear! *shakes head* I have no idea what possessed me, it was whim!) I be-bopped to and sang along with all my favorite songs, and bought a CD from my new favorite band. The two best things about being on Fremont Street for St Paddy's day besides the music? Well, first are all bonny lads in (proper) kilts! *sighs happily* The second thing is the people watching! Oh my goodness, they do come out of the woodwork for this holiday!
I am doing a bit better, after gaining a couple more pounds, I am now down. Granted, I'm probably not doing it the best way I can, but I am losing. So my thyroid has finally stabilized. I'm still having odd dreams, but they are not quite as disturbing as recent ones. (I dreamed of my mama last night and woke up happy and sad at the same time.) I'm still going through some bothersome, fluctuating mood swings, so I'm pretty certain I need to see my doctor and check to see if we need to up my medication. (I don't mean to sound like I'm manic depressive! I'm just not my normal obnoxiously cheerful self yet and I miss me!)
All in all I am doing better...I even woke up with a song in my head today, which is always a good sign. I'm going to putter a bit, do a couple of chores and groom my cat.
It's a beautiful morning, and it's going to be a beautiful day. I will make it so! *LOL*
