Another successful day! I stayed In the right calorie range with plenty of room for an extra snack or craving. I didn't exercise, but I still don't feel right so I'm going to allow myself another day of rest. Tomorrow night is yoga class and I know I will need it after the stressful work week. Good night all and have a sparktastic weekend.

Great Day

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

I really stuck within my calories today and I have lots of energy lately. I've been resting more the last few days due to patella tendinitis. My body is itching to exercise but I want it to get better first. It just doesn't seem to get better, but I know it will eventually. Saturday I'm running again, hopefully I can do the full 8 miles.

    It's nice to have lots of energy from eating right and exercising-your body is happy!! Glad you are resting a bit, though, so you don't get a serious injury. Saturday will be here before you know it! Keep going strong!

Performance reviews

Monday, January 23, 2012

I know it's good for me but I really hate doing performance reviews yearly. I feel like I'm interviewing for my job and trying to prove myself. Ugh! I wish I could just be appreciated for the job I do without having to say "look what I did, this is all the great stuff I've done this year". Blah blah blah. To me comes off as boastful. I prefer to be modest about the work I do. My boss is always saying women need to boast their accomplishments more, and I guess she's right. But it really feels uncomfortable. I've worked in other places that don't do performance reviews and this is really the better way to things, but I can't say I like doing it.

Skiing was much better today. The sun was shining, it was still cold but least no wind. I rented a new pair of skis today, ones I was considering buying. They were so much better than my own skis so it was time for an upgrade. Anyhow goodnight all.


The weather

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Skiing today was very frustrating. It is so cold I kept having to take breaks after each run just to warm up my hands and feet. My goggles got so fogged up I couldn't see. It's so cold, too cold in fact, that it's not enjoyable. Well tomorrow is a another day.

    I think it's great that you are just out there doing it! Do you have those little hand warmers that you put in your gloves? I know my family uses those and they seem to help on colder days. Hope you got a better day today!!
