Update

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

10 more days until my daughters wedding. It's exciting. The To Do List for it is fun & manageable. emoticon
Working hard to get caught up at work. I will be better able to handle my stressors if I feel a little less back logged. Just need some quieter days. emoticon
Walked all over the mall last night. Felt great to put one foot in front of the other & keep moving. emoticon
Liking the cooler weather. Wore several sundresses this summer. Unfortunately there is a down side to that. They are easily expandable. My pants are not & oh boy are they much snugger then they were! emoticon
Way to many fast & unhealthy meals lately. Missing my fresh foods. I need to get myself together on this! emoticon emoticon
Flavored coffees have added allot of extra calories too. Trying to come up with some lower calorie varieties. The good news is I kicked soda to the curb!
Praying for the day that I can overcome some stressors & get back to healthier living.
As a small step today I promise me 8 waters. emoticon
Wish I could set more goals but things have been tough. My goal is to build on several small steps. Better days are ahead. I refuse to give up. emoticon

    Congrats on kicking soda to the curb! And those flavored coffees---I so totally understand emoticon I'm actually eagerly waiting for the pumpkin spice creamers to hit grocery store shelves--yes, it's flavored and has calories, too, but at least it's not a cappuccino from Starbucks, right? Or maybe that's just what I want to tell myself. emoticon emoticon

Oh, well--getting on track with 1 habit at a time will help get you were you want to be so you're doing great, remember that!

It's morning

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Woke up with a headache. Tossed & turned last night. Praying that with some ibuprofen & a cup of coffee I'll be ready to face the day. And a heavy dose of prayers.

My goal for today is 8 waters. emoticon

Whew, I'm exhausted today!

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Stayed up very late checking off RSVP's. emoticon I need nap & only been up 20 minutes. emoticon Amazing how many people forget to respond either way. emoticon Sent lots of messages Hopefully they will roll in in the next few days. emoticon
Stayed within calories yesterday. Did not drink enough water. On the run all day so hard to do.
I do vow to not let my work & personal schedule throw me to the lions emoticon I'll work really hard on getting my water today. emoticon

    RSVP's people should do ASAP. It really is respectful to the host especially if a catered event. Keep moving and sparking - I know you'll reach your goals. Don't let anyone or anything get in your way. emoticon

Struggled Today but I'm Encouraged

Monday, August 25, 2014

Back to work today. Lots of recent changes & a very heavy workload. Love my job & will likely be there until I retire. Just a stressful time.
Hard to stay focused on my health goals today. Two positives are that I enjoyed returning to Spark tonight. I packed a healthy lunch today.I did slip up by forgetting my goals & ate some stress with a visit to the vending machine. Tomorrow's another day. I'm worn out but somehow still feel encouraged. Praise be to God.
Spent sometime welcoming newbies & returning Sparkers. I also looked for some Spark Friends who apparently are on hiatus. For their sake I hope they come back. I refuse to quit! We can do this! emoticon

    What a great perspective to know from where your strength comes. Perfect days (as planned or desired) seem to elude even the best of us. You can do this!
