Progress not perfection

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

9/30/08...still trying to get more balance in my life but feeling better than last week. Trying not to be such a perfectionist and letting some things go which is helping me feel less overwhelmed. Taking it one day at a time and learning new strategies as I go along.

    Yep, gotta strive for progress, not perfection. Hope the new job is going well and you are feeling more and more comfortable there.

Balance

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

9/23/08...trying to balance it all is becoming tougher these days since I started working full-time outside of the house. If I get the household things figured out then it's my food and fitness that suffer. Working towards eating smaller portions during the day usually things that I can grab and go. Making my main meal is breakfast seems to help. Soup for lunch hits the spot most days. Supper is usually more of a meal, just smaller. My fitness is all over the place but a few mornings and a few evenings is working for now. I try to get in a few dog walks on the weekend but most weekends are spent running errands.

I know I'll get a handle on this soon, I have too---the scale has not been kind to me.

  keep up with the great work. It not what you eat but how much of it you eat. I am a big eater but I make sure to exercise every day except weekends.

Signs of Fall

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

9/16/08...plenty signs of fall here in Wisconsin. Shorter days and cooler temps are only a few signs that fall is on the way. I actually like fall because of the slower pace, the comfort foods and just time to reflect. Funny how the seasons help us balance things in our lives.

Started New Job

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

9/9/08...started my new job yesteray and I'm really going to like it there. I spent most of the day at orientation and then a few hours at my office getting familiar with their computer system and email. I even got a bouquet of fresh flowers! Thanks to everyone for their kind words of support. I don't know what I'd do without my SP friends!

A New Start

Tuesday, September 02, 2008

9/2/08...I can't wait to start my new job on the 8th. It will be very challenging but I'm ready for whatever it will bring. I'm also going to rededicate myself to fitness and food here on SP. I'm looking to drop a few pounds in time for the holidays.
