This is the intro on my personal page but I am also going to use it as a blog post to keep me honest.
Well, here I go again, I am starting over. My last appearance was over a year ago. I became overwhelmed by work, disease, commitments and moods. Just the whole "I don't want to do this anymore" feeling. Now I am right back where I started 4 years ago (minus 2 pounds...). I am feeling sluggish, and every joint in my body is crying out for me to change these bad habits.
My Dr. Is working on my medication mix, but as of today, nothing positive. This is a major reason to get some of this weight off... again. I am going to start with gentle yoga until my muscles start to heal and strengthen, get back in the pool for the joint easy cardio. Then I will move back to my bike and start riding regularly.
An apology to my friends, I am so sorry I just disappeared. I just couldn't be positive in the place I was and I didn't want that attitude to spill over on you. I hope you all have been well and are continuing on in your healthy lives.

I know that you have been going through a rough time, and I want to tell you that it is ok to let yourself feel down, but only for a little while. It's time to get up and move on. You know that you will feel better if you lose the weight, if you find other methods to cope with stress and boredom, and depression. You are worth more than what you are being given credit for. Don't do it for anyone but yourself.

Day 3 of this blogging thing, organization.
I am trying to start with my desk at work. I have piles, small ones, but piles. Some are piled by project, some are piled by need date and yet others are piled by "to do". Now, in order for this to work, I must make my piles consistent (first goal). I need to figure out which pile will be more important, which at this point, I am thinking it should be need date. From there they should be broken down by project, and the "to do" should be the last, or even in a pile by themselves, since they rarely have a particular project that they fit with.
Next, the piles need to be placed into files (wow change one little letter...). I have an empty hanging file drawer which will accommodate everything on my desk once I have them arranged in a consistent format.
Now to get it finished, along with my regular duties...
I need to carry this over to my home and that will be starting with my crafts. Most is arranged neatly, in my craft room, however, when I have a project out in the den with DH, I have a tendency to pile again. I need to move finished project supplies back to the craft room, find people to gift the finished projects and tag all of my yarn and thread stashes on the project website that I use. Ok, so this one will be more than a week... Now to keep from stressing over the fact that it isn't done yet.
Once again, thanks to everyone who comments, I really appreciate the support!

Ok, day 2 of this blogging thing. First Thank you to all of you who commented and encouraged me! You are all
Now, I am working on consistency and I am making it through the second day. I've done my morning workout, I'm completing my blog, and I am feeling really good about this so far.
I have to remember to post now. I have a challenge on the Determined Daisies and on on the Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis. These are the highest on my priority list right now and hopefully if I talk about it here, where people can see that will help hold be accountable. While I am working on this, I am going to work on organization. I think that the 2 will go hand in hand.
Thank you all again for your support!

To all of my Determined Daisy Team mates,
I am so sorry about the last 2 weeks. I have been totally inconsistent in my posting and I know that I have not done my part.
This week is about blogging on changing a bad habit. My worst habit is consistency. I start off great but then I let life get in the way of my goals and falter. This week will be a comeback of sorts then, get me back on track and work on my follow through.
My next bad habit is organization. This is another subject I intend to tackle with my blogging this week.
I will seek inspiration from my Team mates, not only on the Daisy team, but though all of the teams I am on. I am also going to print this blog entry out and place it in a couple of highly visible spots.
Thank you to those of you that haven't given up on me, I appreciate the kind words, mail messages and inspiration! You are all Awesome!
