I am missing my happy buzz. I have not gone to the gym this week. Yes, I have been buried under piles of work and I have squeezed in walking time, but truth be told, walking around does not give me that same feeling of wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Yes, as a matter of fact, wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee is a technical term. My doctor accepted it as gospel when I shared it. So should you. :)
I am delightfully happy to have not just a job, but a job that I love, working with many people who I love. On top of all of that, I get to work with amazing, self-motivated college students who scored more on their SAT's then I knew points existed. In today's office discussion, we were chatting about the nervous system of the fruit fly. I laugh that the kids talk to me as if I know what they are talking about. I enjoy our camaraderie and truth be told, I am a great manager and a very hard worker. I love my job (mostly) and even though this week was a bear, it was filled with many super moments. In case you wanted to know, the nervous system of the fruit fly is located on the belly.
I need to go to the gym to get my mojo back. Going to the gym will help me keep myself in check when I want to yell at a co-worker (for being stupid). I did not yell today but I came pretty close. I'm much less easy going than my I must go to the gym for my happy buzz counterpart.
So that's what on tap for me, Sparkies --- what's going on for you?

We turned away lots of people, but they have another chance to get in tomorrow, and will still be a possibility on the day of the event. Anyway, evertyhing went fine and I kept my cool.
Ha! We are still crazy busy, but everything went fine!

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!
