Back on track

Monday, January 31, 2011

Eating well, ran 4 miles at lunch, planning on either yoga or bands after work. Yep, back into the swing.

The weather here is calling for ice, ice baby for the next few days, so treadmill it is! Blarg. Trying to stay positive...

Happy Monday!


Did I mention chaos?

Saturday, January 29, 2011

12 calls in 10 hours. I'm beat. I'm drained. I need to recharge and get back to it tomorrow.

Friends. Good night.

Didn't realize anyone was paying attention! LOL

Friday, January 28, 2011

Just kidding about the title. I know that there are a lot of you that keep me in check and to you, I am forever grateful. I should be "back on schedule" now. Crazy week. Crazy week. Crrrrazy week, but a great one.

I have a hard time sparking when i'm working from home. I get so engrossed in what I'm doing that the day flies by. Before I realize it, the day is over (I've usually worked straight through lunch) and its time for me to make dinner.

When I work from home from my house (not husby's), I have a "routine". However, I can't seem to get into one at husby's house. That is my goal for next week... to figure out a routine while I'm at husby's.

And geez, I need to get out and workout! The snow is driving me nuts! Cabin FEVER! :) Now that I'm at my home, though, I have access (and no excuses) to a treadmill.

Ok, I can't type a whole lot more. I promised my Dad I would work the end of his shift on the ambulance this evening and I work day and night shift tomorrow and day shift Sunday at the ski area.

Barring any chaos tomorrow (but with 800 in group sales, I doubt it will be chaos free!), I will be back to my sparking self.



Not feeling very bloggy lately...

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Sorry friends, I just haven't felt like typing. I guess I've been enjoying life too much away from the computer! :)

I promise to be more diligent (I think I've said this before), but the precious few moments I get with the hubby (who had an extra day off this hitch, BTW!) trump everything.

Love to each and every one of you,

Crazy dreams

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

I had crazy dreams last night and didn't get much sleep. I kept waking up. My husband IMed me after I had gone to bed as well. I like that he does keep in contact, but still, another distraction.

I set my alarm for 0500 this morning and was set on finishing the P90X video I started. Nope. Got up, shut the alarm off, went back to bed.

Tonight is card night with Mom and Granny. I wish we could find a fourth person to play bridge. It works with three, but takes a little jockeying around.

It is cold and rainy here today. 37F with drizzle. I cannot stand this weather... warm and rain, cold and snow are fine. Cold and rain. Bleh. This is when I need an extra shot of Vitamin D and to go sit under my lamp. I guess working in the basement of my office doesn't help either.

Yesterday, I stood on my front porch in bare feet. Ok, it was a little cold for bare feet, but it was sunny and pretty (and almost 50F)! I really enjoyed my run. It was nice to get out of the house/office and just do it. It also reassured me that my obstacles on the dreadmill are 100% psychological. I need to get over myself and start pounding out good workouts on that thing.

I came to work this morning, but looking at the weather, I think I may want to head back up the hill soon. They are calling for ice this evening at my place. We shall see. My boss is pretty loose on things like that.

So, lets try a list of positives and a list of goals like Debs does (thanks again for the idea!):
-I ran outside (broken record here!)
-I stayed in my WW points target yesterday (had .5 left at the end of the day)
-Tried a subway kids meal with apples and water instead of chips
-Got some chores done around the house, including changing the snowblower off the tractor and put the blade back on and plowed my 1/2 mile long driveway
-Played cards with Mom and Granny for a half hour between WW and running

-Stay on track food wise
-Card night with Mom and Granny!
-Resistance bands when I get home
-Run in the rain (although the weather is reported as "overcast" right now)
-Straighten the house since I'm leaving for husby's either tonight or tomorrow

If I could give you each a gift, here are the things that popped into my head:
-John - a hug
-Apple - a sugar free cola that wasn't yucky
-Chris - a spa day (away from that high stress job of yours!)
-Robin - a 5k with beautiful scenery that we could do together
-All my spark friends - happiness and health in 2011
