Hello fellow sparkers. I awoke at 5:20 am this morning, not unusual, but since today wasn't a scheduled gym morning for me, I didn't have my workout gear or work clothes ready to go. so instead, I got out of bed and went downstairs trying not to wake anyone, and started peddling on my recumbant. It's funny. I am not a morning person really, but I find getting up and going to the gym or working out at home easier then to do it after work, when there are so many more readily available excuses for not going. I am going to be sooooooooooooo fit and strong before I know it. :)


standing up

Monday, October 29, 2007

today was rough at work. They began training me on mulitiple jobs and I wasn't even asked if I was interested in it. One aspect of it is okay-once I learn it, but the other aspect, doing invoices, is something I want no part of. I am not business minded, and don't pretend I want to be. I am a creative soul. Today I almost lost it. I did on the way home. I was being trained things, and then another team leader came to me wanting something done, and then another person came to me wanting something done. Well, not all was accomplished. I sent an urgent email to the one team leader, saying it would not get completed, She never responded. I went home. A higher up came to speak to me. I don't know if she knew I was upset. A co-worker noticed and I don't know if she went to her or not. If she did I am thankful. I was able to tell her I hadn't been asked. She then asked if I had talked to anyone. I said no. She suggested meeting with the owner and herself tomorrow to go over it. That makes me nervous, but no one else is going to speak up for me right?


Giving it your all

We can only do our best in life. I went home from work yesterday worried about an upcoming meeting today. I journalled my thoughts, then after writing I let it go and concentrated on riding my recumbant bike and vegging out on television. The meeting still popped into my head once in awhile but I managed not to let it get to me too much.
If we do our best, nobody can ask more, and for those that do--they are not worth the effort to begin with.


Motivational Visualization

Monday, October 15, 2007

I am a firm believer in this. The other day I saw a photo and though it wasn't of me, I realized if I keep on eating the junk I have-fast food, quick hunger fix, then I will surely end up in the same place as the person in the photo. It has become a motivator. A few months ago I was reading Prevention magazine and there was a photo of a woman whose weight was the same as mine at the time. She was in a bathing suit. Her height was the same, and I realized that was me in a sense. Then I saw her after picture, and realized with some extra effort that too could be the me, I feel I am inside. The inside will only meet the outside with effort.

asking for help

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

so true. this week at work i am doing different duties while my co-worker is on holiday. Sitting at the computer, and doing something different, i drew a blank on what i had been shown. I needed to ask for help. Though I would've loved to have been able to get through it on my own-there was a time issue to deal with. At the time stress and anxiety ran high, but now i can see everything turned out in the end. help doesn't mean you are helpless.
