This weekend will be crazy

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

This weekend is my daughter's 5th birthday (Friday), so my parents are driving up from Florida to be with us. Yay! I love having them, even though our house starts feeling pretty small sometimes when we have guests.

emoticon
It's also my 8yo son's Pinewood Derby all day Saturday. I'm glad the grandparents will get to experience that event -- it's always a lot of fun. The 5yo has Kindergarten testing that same morning -- luckily it's at the same place! -- at 8:30 am.

And THEN, we're having an actual party for the birthday girl on Sunday. Remind me to order a cake....!

It's going to be a whirlwind! I haven't even cleaned a single surface in my house in preparation. !!!! Aaaack!

    I know how you feel. I have 5 February birthdays in my family and they're all coming next weekend! This weekend we're just having my son's which is a kids party and I don't have to worry about the house as much (thankfully middle school boys couldn't care less if there's dust on the piano, as long as the pizza is decent and the video games are on) but after that, it's time to roll up my sleeves and get serious! Enjoy your party and your company...hope your daughter has a happy 5th! emoticon

Stupid busy

Friday, February 08, 2013

I'm so sick of being stupid busy at work. I don't even have time to be blogging here but just feel like I want to vent. I set up my days with no time in between tasks, and hope to get all of MY priorities finished -- and every day, I get two or three additional requests that apparently have higher rank. So then I feel behind every day.

It's getting old, is what I'm saying.

TGIF! And I did my ten minutes.

Sheepish return

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Hello. Again.

So I'm restarting again.

Un-pausing.

Setbacks?

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Dang, y'all. I thought I had this! But then, the WEEKEND. I felt like I didn't have any control at all. Mexican restaurant. Baking cookies. Not working out.

emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am ticked at myself. It's so hard during the holidays. and the weekends.

And I miss red wine.

emoticon

SIGH. Back at it. Right?! Last night did a 20-minute Yoga video -- Yoga always gets me re-motivated (and sore). Today I'll at least walk the stairs at work (10 minutes) and do strength/arms.

COME ON, SELF. LET's DO THIS.

    You can do it! I'm just having one glass of wine or one (OK, maybe 2) of those cookies. Makes me feel less deprived. Planning to maintain this month. If I lose more, bonus!

    I can't live without my Adult Beverages! I'm doing well at having fewer than before, but I absolutely don't believe in cutting them completely. Nothing motivates me to get to the gym more than knowing that I will be having a refreshing adult beverage at dinner with friends afterwards. :)

    I totally hear you.

I am getting derailed by an injury. I am still watching my calories, and eating well, but can't stand that I can't go to the gym.

Yes, tracking is so important. Glad you are back at it! Yoga is great isn't it?

    Restaurants always derail you. And baking cookies, who can do it without eating one.. and then another.. and then another? But fear not! The weekend is over and you are back on track. Starting with yoga and going forward from there. You got this! emoticon

    I hear you, sister!

It's tough this time of year, but it CAN be done. That's great that you're getting yourself back on track with yoga and walking the stairs at work.

Keep tracking that nutrition - I didn't and regained about 5 pounds since mid-November. Don't go where I went!!!! Track the nutrition and stay aware of all you're putting into you.

Best wishes to you - you can do it!

Whew. 1 pound down.

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I weighed in and lost a pound. Woo!

I KNOW it's supposed to come off slowly but it sure does feel like a long road ahead to get where I want to be. I was thinking this morning, "Okay, so next week I should be at 145... and the week after that, 144..." and it seems like FOREVER until I'll even see the 130s. Sigh.

Still, I'm proud of myself for the work I did last week.

Gotta emoticon !!

    I just have to turn off my "end goal" or I feel like I'll never get there. 1 lb down, is 1 lb less between me and my goal weight!
