Long busy day. I decided to get up at 5:30 this morning, get in a nice long workout (to make up for missing a couple earlier this week) before I started my day. I got up and really did not feel the gym thing. So I decided to go back to bed and exercise in the afternoon. When I got back to the bed, my DH had sprawled over the whole thing! I didn't have the heart to wake him, so I went to the gym after all. I did tell him thank you!

Next up was laundry. Got that started and then took daughter to softball practice and worked concessions from 9:30 - 1:00. Came home for lunch and then took off for grocery shopping (after doing more laundry). Three stores later, finally made it home. Put everything away, cooked some brocolli and am FINALLY relaxing until DH calls me. MIL and FIL are set up at our local flea market. Today is the last day, so they are packing everything. As soon as they're packed, we're all meeting at Red Robin for dinner. I'm having the turkey burger and a dinner salad.

Great news tho! There is an adult softball league in my hometown. It is only $25 to play and I am going to play!!!! Yippee!! I have wanted to go play on my daughter's team. I'm small enough I would blend...until they noticed the wrinkles! emoticon Games don't start until July, but I'm sure practices will be sooner. I can hardly wait!!!


Cripes almighty!

What an incredibly long week I've had! Not one productive day all week and I now have over 165 unread e-mails. Hope there is nothing important there! To top it off, I had to play the political bull balarkey game with my boss today and could have ruined a work relationship I've worked hard on building (didn't, but could have!). And, ran around in circles trying to find information for someone who already had his answer!

I am SO glad it's Friday and I can deal with home garbage for a couple of days instead of work garbage. Nice bonus, I didn't turn to food this week much. A little, yes, but not like in the past. Wish me luck for the weekend!

Cranky and surprised...

Thursday, April 09, 2009

Today was nice and busy, but once again, nothing really accomplished. Left work early so I could come home, make dinner, get the girl ready for her softball game and get her there an hour early. Didn't eat dinner cos I had WAY too much to eat for lunch emoticon and still wasn't hungry.

Got home and within the first five minutes I was home, DH asked me to start a load of laundry. emoticon Hasn't he been home for two or three hours and could have the load almost done already? He swore that he "just remembered" (Whatev!). Even his mom didn't believe that one! So, started laundry. That's the cranky part!

Surprised because I decided that I wanted a DP (that's not the surprising part). I have been cutting way back on DP and haven't had one for a couple of days. I popped open a can and drank some. It didn't really taste very good. I think I've had half the can and I'm going to end up throwing away the rest of it. That's the surprising part. Me? Dumping a DP? I have changed. I don't know me anymore!! LOL! emoticon

Weight was down this morning. A little over on calories. Did get my exercise in, so that went right. MIL and FIL are in town so that will interrupt my schedule for the weekend. I'll make it through, tho! emoticon

Better go play nice and pay attention to the company. Later y'all!

What a complete waste of a day! I was in meetings from 8 until 5 with a one hour break (and it wasn't lunch!). At lunch, I had to get permission to share data with a competitor. Then create the presentation to share that data! It goes without saying that I did not taste my food!

The good news is that the meeting with the competitor was very productive. A lot of good information was shared and I think we both have a direction to go that will actually make our products better. The bad news is I didn't get a darn thing done today!

So, question for anyone who might want to answer. How did you decided what your goal weight should be? I decided on 130 because that was my goal when I was doing Weight Watcher's about 5 years ago. I met that goal, felt good at that weight and thought it would be a good weight to get back to. Of course, that was 5 years ago. emoticon I currently bounce between 132 and 135 pretty easily. I'm considering changing my goal to 133 (MET!!) and seeing how that goes.

What does everyone think? Should I continue to strive for that 130 (three more pounds) or say "Good enough!" and move on to maintenance? emoticon
