Happy May SparkFriends! - I have some exciting news!

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Happy Thursday everyone! I have been having a hard time updating my Sparkpage and doing the 5% challenge lately. First I had tax season (which is over!) I have had more free time away from work, but I have been filling it with other things.

A fortune I got the other month has helped me out recently: "Anything is possible with a willing heart". I try to stay positive the best I can even though it can be extremely tough sometimes. At times, it seems like I will never reach some of my goals, but I keep pushing forward! I keep working hard at what I do, and I keep being myself. I keep believing in myself and try to realize that I am the one that needs to keep believing in myself the most to have good things happen. I even need to be the one who is OK with the not-so-good things. Life is about perspective and attitude! I have been pretty happy even though my life isn't perfect. No one has a perfect life no matter what it looks like from the outside.

I am still having some stomach problems. I went to a specialist who put me on Cholestryamine. The Doctor thinks my body never fully adjusted to my missing gall bladder. It is normally used for lowering cholesterol, but it also can help with bile salt problems?? He wants me to use the powder mix twice a day, once 2 hours after breakfast and also 2 hours after dinner. I eat dinner at different times, and sometimes I don't have the chance to take the medication. I don't know how it will work out unless I get a more regular schedule after work. At least M-F I am at work, and I eat my breakfast the same time every day. The specialist also told me I SHOULD have dairy. The last Doctor I saw told me to stop having dairy. I stopped for at least 6 months, but now I am eating Activia every morning per the Doctor's orders.

I will probably still use almond milk and coconut milk as replacements for regular milk because I like both of them! I will still try not to eat too much cheese. Just because I can have it again doesn't mean I have to go on a binge!!

There is a lot more going on besides the Iffy health issues. My blood pressure is still great, I feel good, and life is GREAT. I do need to exercise more. I have been walking more, but I want to do more physical exercise like zumba again. Even though I thought I would have more time to myself after tax season, I have filled up that time already. Instead of doing tax season work, I am now doing New Home research and planning! Oh, and I have been trying to pack at my house and my boyfriend's place! I finally found a house to buy with my boyfriend, and we are planning on settlement at the end of May! I am excited, nervous, and a bit stressed about it! There is so much paperwork I have been getting, and I have to wait for some of it. The waiting part really gets me antsy sometimes! I am trying my best to be happy and not stressed, but I just want everything to go smoothly so we can settle this month!!!!!!!!

I am so excited about moving in to my own home, but everything is SO expensive. I just had my yearly review at work, and I got a raise which came at the perfect time. Every little bit will help! Also, I am going to take some accounting classes at the local community college. I haven't been in college since 2005, so it will be tough getting back into School Mode. I am nervous, but also glad I will be learning more which will help my job. My bosses want me to take the classes so I will be able to do more at my current job. They even offered to pay for the classes, so that makes it even better! It is such a nice feeling to know that my bosses really appreciate me and they are willing to invest in ME.

Once I move in and get everything semi-together, I can FINALLY start cooking all of my meals! There are so many recipes I want to try. I am excited about cooking, and I am also excited about having a bigger garden! We started some tomatoes, peppers, and basil seeds indoors. I want to create one or two raised beds at the new house! We also want to plant cucumbers, green beans, snap peas, and squash! I am so excited about being able to cook, and hopefully the plants grow well so I can cook what I am growing!

I still love this website, and hopefully I get the chance soon to visit all of your SparkPages. I really miss reading about everyone!

I haven't written down goals or myself in a long time, so I want to do it for the rest of the month:

May Goals:
-Go Kayaking at least once. I bought a deal online
-Get 1,200 fitness minutes
-Eat more fruits & veggies
-Try to remain as calm as I can/try to be less stressed
-Stay close to my goal weight
-Start tracking my food again
-Stay Positive the best I can
-Start 5K training again!
-Take time to RELAX and do things for me - Pet Fair this month!

    WOOHOOO Kim !!! U GO KIDDO !!!!! CONGRATS on the house,,,, hopefully it will go "as smoothly as it can" being that something almost ALWAYS COMES UP !! The more one "stresses out" about it,,,, ,the joy of it, can be put aside a wee bit,, and of course that's NOT a help,, stressing never gets us any place. :) Just MORE AND MORE FREAKING OUT TIME ! UGHERS !!

Also CONGRATS in the job area. WHen I worked for the city ,, they ALSO paid for me to go back to college,, and they ALSO PAID FOR IT !! I had to agree to work for them for a certain amount of time,, which I did , than I found a MUCH better paying job ,at twice as mch,, and NOT all the STRESS that comes from when you work with a NASTY publlc who are coming in to PAY something they'd RATHER NOT ! And I also had worked in the welfare dept, for quite a few yrs,,, I HATED IT !!! (well at first it was FUN ! But, than we had clients who'd meet others RIGHT OUTSIDE the window,,, we could SEE this happen,,, they would SELL the food stamps we just GAVE THEM For 50 cents on a dollar so they could use the cash to buy booze, cigarettes and of COURSE DRUGS !! Sheehse that so RUINED IT For those who REALLY NEEDED IT !! it mostly the single ones who did this,,, not families,,,,I was ALL FOR Families,,, I STILL AM !

CONGRATTERS !

Life is stressful, but I am trying to make the best of it!

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

It is hard to relax when I only have 2 hours between the time I get home until I have to go to sleep. I wish I could stay up later, but I wouldn't get enough sleep. Lack of sleep = more headaches & getting sick! I don't want to get sick! So far this whole winter I have avoided getting sick. I leave the house at 8am and I have been getting home at 8 or 8:30pm Monday through Thursday nights. We get to leave at 5:30 on Fridays, but I am just so tired and I don't feel like doing much that night anyways. Then I have 8 hours of work on Saturday. It is tough for me just having one day off. I don't see how people could work 7 days a week!!!!!

I haven't had much time to exercise. Sometimes I think to myself "I should at least do some squats or ab work before bed". But then I seriously just don't feel like it so I don't do it. I have no motivation to do any exercise. I am mad at myself for it, but somehow I can't make myself do it! I have to work late and there are no late fitness classes right now that I could take. I don't think I would have enough energy to workout and then go right to bed. I don't want to wake up earlier because I want to make sure I have enough sleep. So many of my co-workers keep getting colds, and I don't want to not get enough sleep and maybe get a cold!

All of that is just a whole bunch of excuses, but that is how my life is going right now. I am not depressed, but I am just a little overwhelmed with everything going on. There are no houses in my price range to look at, and I don't have much time to look anyways. I want to move out, but it just isn't happening any time soon. I keep feeling like I am saying the same things over and over again because life is moving forward but there are still some goals I feel like I will never reach. I am trying to be patient with the house hunting, but I hate living out of my travel bags. I do laundry at home, and then pack it right away to take over my boyfriend's place. I stay at home 1 or 2 nights a week and live out of my bags at his place the rest of the time.

Sorry to gripe! I just had a bit of free time, and it makes me realize the things I am not happy with. I am trying to focus on what IS good in my life, but I have a headache so that doesn't help me be upbeat!

Hopefully everyone is doing well. I haven't had a lot of time to browse on Spark. I posted on about 4 blogs today - I miss everyone! I miss this community. I hope I have some time to look back at my old blogs and see what I have to look forward to once tax season is over - more exercising and more free time!!!!!! I can't wait!!!!!!

    I know how hard it is to only have 2 hours to yourself at the end of the day... it stinks.
Is there any way you could take a 10 minute walk at night or something like that? I find every little bit helps (and helps reduce stress). If not, then you don't need to stress about that on top of everything else. It's important to get sleep, as you said, and it's good that you're prioritizing yourself.
A little over a month and you'll be good. Which stinks. But hang in there! We're all rooting for you.

    Hang in there! The end of tax season is soon coming and probably faster than you think as busy as you are! Warmer days, sunshine and time to run, walk and simply enjoy is approaching! Good for you on not getting sick, but remember exercise can help with that too1 That is how I've stayed healthy this year! Maybe those tried, but true things like taking the stairs, doing squats before you sit down for work or using the bathroom, lunges or whatever while brushing your teeth.... Good job on sleeping though! So many people would give that up! Continue caring for yourself and we will look forward to more exercise and fun from you once this chaos passes!

    We have been house hunting as well and staying at an extended stay motel. It is hard and things can be tough, but you do seem to have a kind of routine so maybe that helps and soon you can find a place to move. Sleep is important, you are so right about that.

Have a great day and keep your chin up. Once the next couple of month are over, hopefully the rest of your life will stop dropping into pace.

Maybe you could challenge yourself to to do one "healthy thing" a day & be proud of yourself for that accomplishment. It wouldn't seem like much, but I bet the momentum would build! I'm reading the Spark book now & it talks a lot about building momentum.
Keep Sparking as much as you can & de-stress as much as possible!

Hi everyone! February is halfway over already!?

Monday, February 17, 2014

Hi Sparkers. It has been so long since I had time to Spark. I still don't really have time right now to say much, but I wanted to say HELLO!

I hope everyone is doing well! I have been SO busy at work! It is tough only having one day off a week. On Saturday nights, I get home, get ready for dinner, eat and then I am so tired I don't even want to stay up too late! Then Sunday I do lots of chores, and my weekend is over! At least I am getting paid for my overtime.

I have been slacking in the fitness department lately. Sorry Winter Starfish buddies - I stink! My yoga classes are at 6 or 6:15 and lately I haven't been getting done work until 7:30 or later. I could find a different class somewhere else, but sometimes I get done work at 8, so I don't want to pay for a class I may miss! Plus, I don't really feel like going to a gym after work and not getting home until 9 or later! This cold weather isn't helping either. I wanted to walk the other day, but the residential roads are still so slippery from the ice. Of course it is supposed to snow tonight also! Oh well, I just have to wait until spring!

My food has been OK - I have been eating fine while at work. It is a little tough on the weekends though. I do want to make batch meals again, but I have been so busy and I have not had time to go to the store to get the ingredients! Plus, I haven't had time to make the food either!

Time to get back to work.
Take care!
-Kim

Happy Thursday! Quick update!

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Happy Thursday everyone.

I am glad the 5% Winter Challenge is starting on Jan 18th. Hopefully that will motivate me to move my butt MORE. I haven't gained any weight, but I have definitely been slacking in the exercise department. My friend who goes to yoga with me is on a cruise (lucky her!). I should go without her, but I only have a limited amount of classes with this deal. The cold weather is keeping me inside most of the time! It is supposed to keep warming up today and through the weekend I think. I don't like breathing in that super cold air too much.

Life is pretty good for me for the most part. My eating has been pretty good for the most part. Work is very busy, so I haven't had much time to acknowledge my SparkFriends. I miss posting on blogs and reading updates! Hopefully everyone is doing well with their January goals so far! This weekend I am having a game night & then going to the Baltimore Medival Times show! The best part is that I get to go with my boyfriend and a couple of friends who live in Maryland. I haven't seen them in a while, so it will be fun to see them.

Hopefully everyone has a great rest of the week! Keep Sparking!

    You're doing so wonderfully! Have a great time catching up with friends - my kids and I are heading to Baltimore tomorrow to visit my dad. Such a fun city! Keep it up - and stay warm. emoticon

    I hear ya. The cold air really makes it hard to get out. I know if I try running when it is too cold, my asthma will kick in and I hack the rest of the day. You'll get back in the swing of things, I'm sure. I know I will be so very grateful when the temps are at least consistently in the 40s though...that's deal-able for me.

Have fun this weekend!
