I'm feeling cranky. Not enough sleep. Working with an event that is going to bring a crowd, possibly two - won't be enough seats to go around. People will be snippy. I'm choosing not to be cranky, though it will take a little work. :)
Happy Monday all!
I have a renewed sense of "You can do this, Mar" - and I intend to!
I need to re-focus on getting my veggies in --- in a healthy --- not hiding in fried goop.
THis day is going to be okay. That's the spirit. :)

People do stupid things. Don't take it personally.
That is what I am telling myself.
A student worker was s'posed to start last week. Told me she needed more time. OK. It puts me behind, but I give it to her. She emails me today to "introduce" me to her roommate who she wants to take her place as she took a different job. Really?
It is a reminder to me to always trust my instincts. I had a weird feeling about this girl the first time around and did not hire her. Then, I kind of felt sorry for her and offered her an office position, different than most of the other workers.
I am not hiring the roommate either.
I work with a lot of amazing kids. Well, I guess they are really young adults. Not all of them are going to work out perfectly. Oh well. I just wanted to get that off my chest.
This angst shall pass.

When you have a moment (or moments) of weakness, get ready to make a u-turn. I felt like I was slipping away, and I did grab a lifeline.
When you think you can't - think again. You can. and if you really want to --- you REALLY Can.
Thanks to SP, I know personally know dozens of people who have lost and kept significant amounts of weight off.
They have done what I am doing. They remind to stop wishing away the weight and make myself healthier, and then weight will drop off. (It is ...slowly, but surely).
Do not give up under any circumstances. You are born to win. You are an amazing beautiful person. If you can remember how others see you, you would remember how freaking amazing you are. Superstar!
The going is going to get tough. Yup, absolutely. There's going to be days,...weeks,...months - where you will have to be very creative with your time. Limit your TV to 2 hours or less a day. You're going to have to exercise when you don't feel like it and load up on the fruits and veggies and forgo junk. Guess what - you can handle it. You are as tough as nails.
You might even find you like it. ha! It would serve you right. :)
Congrats to you on everything you have done so far. I am so proud of you for forging ahead, and not using your size to give up and be a hermit as it is sometimes tempting. Remember who you are, what you have done, and what you can do. Don't deprive the world of the special blessing you are.
For those of you who have tuned in, thanks for joining. If you take a minute to think about yourself, I am sure you will see you have so much to give. I had a rough week and wanted to leave myself a trail of breadcrumbs for the future. You can get right back to it. Love yourself a little more.
Happy day, sparkies! Keep sparking!

The kids are back. School is back in session. I'm an administrator of sorts at a university. I work with kids. They are among the most brilliant and coolest kids I could ask for. Love them,...but they do take a lot of work. Some are geniuses, truly, but also just kids. Funny how those 2 things match up.
I am so busy - I can barely turn around. I need to be an uber planner to make everything work well together. I am having some start-up issues with staying on track. I am so tired, and so bogged down with work, and also training new staff, under deadlines, and trying to keep a smile on my face while I do all of the above.
I am not a mom --- and perhaps if I were, this would all come naturally. It doesn't and I need to work on it. I consider myself blessed to work at such an inspiring place with good benefits, and I do give it my all, and thensome. I need to balance out the home aspect and especially now while I am trying to take care of myself too. Oy!
Need to stay focused and get to bed and get to gym in a.m. --- not only does it help me feel oodles better, it keeps me from wanting to kill one of the kids if they neglect to show up on time, etc. Patience is a virtue, or so they say!
Going to the gym will help keep me sane --- if I can get some sleep. Geez! I am off to bed now --- hoping I can pull this off in the a.m.
Have a happy night, sparkies!

It took me 9 years to get here. I went on a news blackout today.
A few days ago as the Anniversary of 9-11 was approaching, I realized I didn't have to feel bad about it anymore. Two of my friends (plus thousands of others) died that week when the towers came down. I've felt bad about it for a long time. Of course, I remember the richness they brought into my life. I am just finally ready to let it all go.
I'm no longer stuck in the moment.
