God has seen fit to bless me big and bless me small. I am blessed with a fantastic husband, who loves me no matter what, loving kids, good friends in many capacities... co-workers, neighbors, other kid parents, email buddies, spark friends. I"m just so amazingly blessed and today, I'm feeling it! I was going to blog yesterday, but i was busy.. I just got back from a mini vacation with my dad and step-mom. I love seeing my dad! He's such a positive influence. God has truly blessed me.
It has been a long time since I've been able to get to see my dad.. honestly it hasn't been on my priority list as my step-mom... well I don't always know how to take her... but I really do think she means well most of the time. And when things do fall out of her mouth that shouldn't I'm sure she doesn't mean it like it sounds.. so anyhoo.. time is short... sometimes shorter than we think.. we may not be granted tomorrow.. so visit, make that overdue phone call and love!!! And don't let small petty things stand in the way of beautiful blessings! I'm blessed to have my dad.. and he's a better man because of my step-mother, and so I'm blessed in turn to have her (-:
Lord thank you for giving me this day!

I'm really struggling here. I'm mostly within calorie range, and even when I'm over, I've exercised.. Every day! I must need to eat less? I'm usually around 1400-1600. I'm running, I'm doing my DVD. I don't know, not enough veggies? not enough water? I'm thinking about joining weight watchers.. but I could never justify spending the money. I'm going to try to really focus on tracking better... calories in.. calories out.. if I can get down to 1200 that will probably do it right?! Maybe I'm over indulging. I think I'm being sensible when I'm not being sensible. ?? hum. Okay well I must get back on track. I have my salad for lunch all made, and I'm going to have oatmeal with blueberries in a few. I had a hard boiled egg and coffee with 2 creams so far, but I've been up since 3:30. I just need to get positive because I'm feeling a little defeated today. )-:

Well I really must stay on top of this food tracking thing. I wake up starving some days, and then I'm ruined by Noon. So I'm exercising but not doing so great on the calorie front. AGG!!!
Oh, about my title, having some ME time....I was so blessed yesterday to get a mostly unscheduled ME day. So yesterday I was to run 4 miles, I knew I was having a slow day, so I got out a little later than originally planned but still good. A very good friend called my on my smart phone, which was tracking my mileage at the time, and said, would you like to meet up, I have to run 3... I said I'm on mile 2, not really wanting to stop, but I thought, Okay how many days to I have not one thing scheduled after another, I will meet you.. so I ran 3 more with her after running 2 for a total of 5!!!! Which was super exciting! Then I helped my husband and push mow the backyard. I never have this kind of time!! This is honestly the first time in 4 years that I've had any kind of time to myself and I'm praising God for this and trying to use it wisely. My work is a little slow, and sure I could be cleaning or something but really? LOL the dirt will still be there...I'm glad to have some ME time. After I ran yesterday morning, I had a date with another good friend, and she and I have hardly been able to chat via text over these last few months. With life slowing down, she came over and we had a very nice visit that ended with lunch. Then I took a much needed bath because she was earlier than I had expected and I'd not showered since my run. I got to have a Calgon moment too!!! Then I went out and helped my husband in the yard and push mowed for 2 hours. Take that calorie overage! LOL. I ended my day with nice very low calorie salad, so I ended up at the high end of being in range, but spark does not really account for all my activity, so I feel like I did GREAT!
So far this morning life is good. Work again is low and I won't end up with much to do or on my paycheck, but God is good and he always seems to give me what I need when I need it even though sometimes I don't always realize it. As I am bored with work being slow and a tad frustrated with that.. I probably really need this time to myself to recharge. Today I will sit down and read my bible, hang out with my husband and kids and just enjoy the summer day. Because September will be here all too soon and the world will again take off and I will want it to slow down.

It is a glorious Tuesday!!!! I'm so glad to be alive and here and able to move my body and I am just feeling so blessed today! I know I haven't shared in a while. I have a calendar here on my desk. It has my work out schedule scribbled on it then in pen I fill in what I did and for the last 2 weeks, I've done GREAT! I'm so proud of me! That said I've been soooo busy I haven't tracked anything, so this morning I put in all my fitness minutes for the last 2 weeks. I might get 750 in this month!!! so exciting!!! Now just to make time to track food (-:
Have a sparky day!!!
