Planning is key

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

I am feeling a little overwhelmed.. I just read someones blog that said if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.. I feel like I have no time to plan anything.. but clearly I need to.

things to do:
* daughter's immigrant project (due friday)
*finish making little person
* call aunt for more detailed description of my great grandma
* son's timeline project (due monday)
* come up with the last few pictures and have them printed out at Walmart.
* husband's jacket needs new zipper... its been on the table for a week!

To do today:
* after school feed children. Carrot sticks and pizza rolls. husband to grill chicken for later.
* leave for dance 4:00
* type 20 min of dictation for doc (this evening's work) time to do approximately 1.5 hour. (do at dance? 4:30-6:00 pm... can do!)

* go visit grandpa ... take him kfc chicken tenders... stop get gas, get kfc, go to rehab facility... time 6:00 get there approximately 6:45 visit, leave get home 8:00ish???
* daughter to eat grilled chicken. (family dinner what's that?)
* run 3 miles... I know its late, but it must be done.. ~I will have to pack a healthy snack to take to dance.. and possibly a bar to eat after.
* shower.
~ at some point in this day, I should be working on immigrant project.. but where?? it is due Friday.. we started it but when! perhaps I can call my auntie with the info tonight on way to dance? but she will talk my ear off! which is why I have not called until now.

oh the multitasking!

I feel better after listing this all out! except the no family dinner time.. but it is Wednesday.. my life goes well without adding the one extra thing.. grandpa in rehab and lonely.. and they're not feeding him enough. )-: My husband's aunt made him a HUGE dinner and took it up on Sunday.

Any offered suggestions appreciated. (-:

    I have an overwhelming day often, but what gets done, gets done. It is hard to do everything everyday.

    I think I am going to do that BusyBee!!! Thank you! I'm thinking my darling daughter can talk with my Aunt on the way to dance in the car.. and then I won't have to handle that so much.

    DELEGATE!!! Wow, that's quite the list. How old are the son/daughter? If they're old enough to gather info, put them on the phone with the Aunt :)

Have a great day.

Busy day

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Monday and Tuesday this week were incredibly busy. 6 miles tomorrow?? I don't know... I'm supposed to go visit Grandpa tomorrow night. Oh, I'm sad.. I'm not going to get my long run in this week. )-: okay.. I'm looking for 3 tomorrow I think I can swing that.

Good news is work is busy! 2 more Tuesdays of Girls on the Run but next week, no cub scouts for my son.. so that's looking like a good workout day!

Gonna stay positive and shoot for 3 miles tomorrow (-: yeah!

So 3 miles today Yippee!!! we'll see what tomorrow holds.

Sunday is a day for rest and reflection and also preparing for the rest of hte week! make it a great one!

made it!

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Okay, I made it through yesterday!!! It was busy but good. Thank you for all the prayers.

I am looking for 6 miles today.. I wonder if I can do it before the birthday party? well worse comes to worse, it will happen after (-:

I think I have to start tracking again. I have gotten a tad lazy with it and as I'm eating lots of fruits and veggies and drinking all of my water, I still find myself wandering over to the dark side here and there a little too much these past couple of days. No good reason really, well maybe PMS, but really not a good reason. And after I eat the offending food, I'm not sure I really wanted it. I have lots of good things to eat in the house. I just need to get back to tracking. I find it a little time consuming, like with a salad, but I just need to knuckle down and do it.

    I need to back to tracking too! I try to eat the same type of salad so I can just copy to another day.

Keep up the great work!

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

still swimming

Friday, November 09, 2012

I have to just keep swimming, swimming, swimming... If any of my spark friends feel like praying for me, I could sure use a few prayers for calm today. I just have so many things.. I have to run into town, visit great grandpa, and calling hours.. and I totally forgot after the funeral tomorrow is my niece's birthday. I have everything to give to everyone.. gift for my niece, sympathy card for my friend, get well soon card for Grandpa decorated by the children... I just think maybe I have too much and maybe I should skip something??? I know I have much on my plate.. I just didn't account for all the extras I suppose.. ???

Oh Lord, help me stay positive and not loose my joy. I want to be a blessing to my loved ones. Help me to lift up my children who tag along with me every where help me to lift them up and not to be frustrated with them and Father give me the extra love and patience I need to get through today and tomorrow. In Jesus name I pray.

You know what I think I just realized.. This is a lesson in leaning on Him. I so try to do it all alone and I cannot. HUM. I'll think on that a while. I welcome any verses or inspirations my friends have for me today.

    I hope you can find some time for yourself in this rush.
I have days like this too, and I find them very de-joy filled also.
