I told my husband that I am in the busiest time for me right now at work. Today and tomorrow are two big days at work, where I have to participate and do a lot of advance work to help make things go smoothly.
He is Mr. gung ho at getting FIOS installed in the house immediately. Not sure why it needs to be immediately. But, since he is on a tear, I told him ok --- but I just can't be around right now to help so he is pushing ahead and doing most of the prep stuff on his own. I feel bad about it, but I think that I shouldn't. I asked for more time, like couldn't we do it after vacation? but his postponement was from 4/3 to 4/17. Gee. Thanks. (I was visiting my sister last wknd).
I am praying that God lets me release my impatience and irritation about the whole scene. I know that everything will work out if I just let go and Let God.

I was seeing my sister this past weekend and I had to clean out my car. For one, she gave it to me when she bought a new car. Since then, I've racked up 50,000 miles on it, maybe. Quite a lot in any case. I'm messy marvin. My trunk is still full of stuff. junk. junk. junk! But the inside doesn't look bad. There's not a lot of stuff in it currently.
Having cleaned it, I actually DECIDED to stop eating in my car. Sometimes, I eat breakfast on the way to work. Sometimes, I eat pieces of my lunch in the car, (for breakfast), or just plain snacking. Nope, no more eating the car. It will help the car to stay cleaner - and who does not feel better having a cleaner car when you have an unexpected lift to provide - or just even for yourself.
This morning, I stopped at WaWa for gas which normally has meant that I would go buy food from inside. Sometimes a bagel sandwich, or a sandwich from their refrigerated section, or a pretzel --- any number of things that by themselves are not so bad, but I would tend to eat them in larger quantities and often while driving in the car.
I just got gas today, and resisted the urge to go inside. I also had a little relaxation in the car where I told himself I would have a calm, safe, courteous commute and it all went so fast. Yay! The 25 miles to work flew by without aggravation and without extra calories! It was great!!!
I bought cottage cheese with pineapple for breakfast and ate it when I got here.
I am completely fine. Resisting the urge to eat in the car and the subsequent urge to stop at Wawa for something besides gas were averted today! YAY!
I've made some good strides (oh that pun was so intended!) in my walking habits recently and now it is time for my nutrition to follow suit. I know how to take care of biz, I just need to do it!!!!
Off to a great day!
And I am still soaking up the good bday wishes from yesterday! Thank you all! Six of my lovely graduating college seniors came in and decorated my office yesterday as a surprise for me! Streamers everywhere! You can't complain about kids like that. :)
Have a wonderful day!!!

My relationship with my mom has not always been perfect,...but today I'm remembering that she carried me around for 9 months and planned her whole life in that time around me! I'm quite sure that she did the same collectively for the rest of my siblings and I for quite a bit longer than that! Thanks, Mom!!!!

I can't wait to keep my walking streak alive today. I've hit my 10,000 goal 3 times in the last week, including yesterday's 13,000 mark. The walking will help me corral my eating also. Once I am seeing payoffs in my energy from better movement: improved circulation, less labored breathing, more pep in my step, it will encourage me to do better and better. That is what is helping propel myself forward.
This morning, I woke up feeling psyched! I am happy to go for a walk and happy I can be at home today. I am starting to feel good in my own skin again and it is a peaceful relaxed feeling. I am losing my fear. YAY!!!!

HA! I went shopping with my sister today! It was great! I bought a necklace, (not on sale), hand cream and soap, not on sale, and an earring tree to display earrings I make (and will one day sell). I saw a great outfit in a window, and basically ordered my sister to try it on, got a sales girl to round up the items in her size to try on, and guess what! she loved it!!!! It was the best bday gift I ever got her I think. It looked beautiful. I felt good. I could afford it (I'd saved) and well you remember the flowers from yesterday.....
and on top of all of this retail therapy, I walked 13000 steps plus today!
Let's hear it for the mall! WOO HOO!!!
