Back on Track:

Sunday, August 26, 2012

I lost my way for a couple of days so I am thrilled to be back on track. I am excited to run w/ an idea posted by another spark member EMMYOS who kept a scrapbook journal. I really like that idea so I am putting together some supplies and am ready to get started on that today. In addition, I want to start rewarding myself daily so I am looking for very small, free, reward ideas. I think I will put in a “reward jar” to pull out at the end of the day. I want to reward progress, not perfection!

I worked later than anticipated due to computer issues and did not complete my exercises. I also became engrossed in my scrapbook journal that I am starting. I am excited for that project.

    Wonderful! Add scrapbooking materials..a bubble bath..a bottle of nail polish..if it is too expensive for a daily might give your items value points and work toward winning them.
I do have something to not add is FOOD. I made that mistake.

Fell off the wagon!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

I did not have a good few days! My husband was home and he wanted to eat out and I didn't stop him!

I lost track of my plan and then let a difficult situation completely throw me off balance. I was at day 28 of 30 to receive my massage when I biffed it. Now I am on day 1.

That is ok. I did it before and I will do it again, only make it to day 30 this time.

    What a great attitude to have! It's nice that you set goals & give yourself rewards. I have to start doing that, maybe it will keep me more motivated.

My plan for Tuesday to spend some time on the house in the am, some time at work for a meeting and free steak dinner and then time with my husband for 2 ˝ days. He has been living and working in a different town and I have really been missing him so this will be so nice.

I am very pleased with today. Even though I was busy and ate out twice today, I stayed within calories and portions. I am looking forward to this trend over the next couple of days!


Some adjusting

Sunday, August 19, 2012

My schedule is a little different for Monday. I am actually working overnight today instead of my normal 6-4:30 pm on Monday. However, I think I will be able to accommodate my eating/diabetes schedule. I am looking forward to the challenge.

Work 11pm to 9:30 am

3rd Break: Declutter project
Off at 9:30 (Brunch) emoticon
Bed until.....hopefully not too late.

So far working overnight has been quite pleasant although a bit tiring since it is messing with my body rhymths. I have also been keeping pretty busy w/ manual work so haven't had as much down time as I would have hoped for, but that is what they pay me for. Looking forward to 9:30 am today!

Never so happy to be off at 9:30 am, but working this shift came with a price. I didn't really regain any energy and I am planning on going to bed soon and get back to my regular schedule again.
