Yesterday, a staff member walked out the door in slow motion, or so it seemed.
After she left, I was exclaiming, "nooooooo" as I realized an important document was left behind.
I had a lot on my plate yesterday (and, in fact today as well - ha ha). I didn't think I could spare the time out of the office as every waking minute was accounted for and paired with a task. But, it had to be done, and I did not have anyone else available who could do it, so off I went. It seemed as if I was transported there in no time. It was a cool, brisk walk.
On the way back though, I realized, drats that is a steep uphill. It was even more annoying that I dropped my fitbit 2 days ago and it is among the missing. It's not in the house; it is somewhere in the world. I do not foresee myself replacing that little number. I huffed and I puffed but I made it back to my desk. It was not without considerable effort though.
Here's something great that came out of this interlude. I CAN DO IT! I DID IT. I AM DOING IT. I see myself from the outside in. I have turned the corner. I am right on the brink of success when I was on my biggest losing streak ever. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I AM BEAUTIFUL! (WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL!)
Take a moment to humor me, sparkies: Tell me something beautiful about yourself. If you are stuck ask me, I will tell you!
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!

This just in! Newsflash!
My body likes to move. It a-p-p-r-e-c-i-a-t-e-s movement. I can't believe how much in this past few days I have realized how much better I feel when I am up moving around. It is not just my body. It is my spirit. It bleeds into my emotional well being. I feel happier. I am lifted. It is all because of moving around more that I realize that I am gaining momentum and rediscovering the awesome woman that I am.
I like myself more. I am giving myself a pat on the back for not only moving, and yes, burning calories, but feeling good about how I look, and what I am doing for myself to get myself to that place. Of you all know that place: the happy place.
Lately, I am there more often than not. and why? Well for one, I am not stiff as a board for having just parked it one the couch and sat around like a bump on a log all day. Same goes for my desk at work. I find myself standing more and having meetings elsewhere, not just in my own office, but places to get out and about.
I am calmer. I am better peace with my decisions. I am taking time to think things through instead of coming up with a rash answer and a one size fits all approach. It definitely does not, and hey, I am okay with that.
Let's all move around a little more sparkies. What is your newsflash?

I am pretty happy camper. Most of my joy though, does not come from huge moments. It comes from little ordinary moments that bring me happiness. I decided to go to work today for a while. I'm salaried so this doesn't net me anything more in my pocket. We're expecting a big storm and I thought it would be wise to be on hand to answer calls that yes, the show was going on, and tickets were available.
As it turns out, it was a great idea. People were calling and I was able to assist. I also gave a ride to a friend I got to work and after the work finished I drove us to Trader Joe's. I had previously not known how to get there, so this was awesome. I bought clementines, chai tea, some mints, cheese, some gluten free rolls, and a choc cake and wine for hubby. I also bought a bunch of gift cards for my students.
Got home before the stormy weather arrived and learned work is closed tomorrow. The storm still has not arrived, but I am sure it will come eventually. We'll no doubt know it when it happens. We don't get many hurricanes in this area, but this should be pretty obvious.
I had a really good weekend, with downtime, work and happy time. Actually, it was all happy. I hope you can find happiness in your little moments, too, sparkies.

You know the establishment is always saying never go shopping when you are hungry?
What they should really say, is eat until you are stuffed and then waddle your booty in the store.
We didn't order appetizers as we have sometimes done in the past, and though we split some dessert, I could not finish it. What the hey? I was still stuffed (on good food) but stuffed. We stopped at the supermarket even though we knew it was going to be packed due to storm warnings for Hurricane Sandy hitting the East Coast.
I had done the bulk of my shopping earlier. This was just for supplemental stuff. I was so stuffed, I could barely look at the shelves. I wanted no part of anything dairy, including frozen things that always come ride home in my cart. I got 3 Larabars, some watermelon and some soap.
Walking around the store also helped to clear that stuffed to the gills feeling which was good. I felt way better belly-wise. I know my c=food choices today were completely fine but I definitely overate. Still, it was a GOOD shopping trip as a result.
Hope everyone is doing great, sparkies!!! If Sandy is headed you way also, batten down the hatches!
