I Wasn't Successful

Sunday, October 03, 2010

I thought that I'd have so much accomplished by now, according to my blog that I wrote yesterday. My body had other plans, though. It decided it was going to take over and make me so tired that about all I got accomplished was a very long nap and going to bed early.

I guess it's going to take me awhile to get acclimated to working full time in addition to exercising, getting my cardio in, and accomplishing some of my housework. I'm finally going to get into a routine and the assignment will be over.

I just am hoping this employment agency can come through again for me or that I can get another job on my own. I've tried so hard to get this temporary one that I don't have a lot of confidence in the employment situation. But, I am working on staying positive. I have a new money goal that I have to meet ASAP and that is a great incentive!

    I agree with Sparkles-today. Taking care of yourself is part of being successful. Get your rest. The housework can wait.

    Nothing wrong with giving yourself a break now and again!

    You needed the rest. You added a lot of activity since beginning work it is just different activity. Your body and mind will adjust. This company may be so pleased with your work ethic they may work hard to find something else for you. Good workers are hard to find even in a slow economy. You have proof on your side now. emoticon Keep positive thoughts! emoticon

    Sometimes our bodies aren't in sync with our plans. It happens and while it is disappointing, it doesn't have to ruin your day. I think you are being tough on yourself. Be kind and allow yourself the time needed to get used to your new routine. Just do the best that you can do, putting one foot in front of the other.
Hang in there ! emoticon emoticon

  You need to change the title of today's blog, girl! Instead of shaming yourself with "I wasn't successful," how about, "Taking Care of Myself," or "Rest First, then Hit the Housework"? I say, with all the changes you are trying to make, you should be gentle with yourself. Try to frame your goals in small bits. Like, maybe your goal could be to make a list of the things you want to do, and then get one thing on your list done each day. AND, make the things on your list small! Instead of "clean kitchen cabinets," list the cabinets separately ("clean cabinet next to sink"; "clean cabinet over stove"; "clean cabinet over toaster" and so forth). That way, you can set yourself up to succeed by doing your big project in small pieces. You will feel more positive and have more energy if you make your plan manageable. Good luck!

Great Organizational Day

Saturday, October 02, 2010

It's a rainy, cold Saturday. For some reason, I woke up ambitious. So,it sounds like I'm going to finally get the chance to do some deep and organizatioal cleaning of my house. I will also have time to sit down and seriously work on my weekly overall schedule. I've just recently started working a temporary job, and I need to figure out how to get everything in each day that I think is important. I had started getting into the habit of setting a goal each week, and I haven't done that the last two weeks. Time to get started...

    Oh I can't wait for some colder weather. It is too hot here in AZ, we are in the 100s and 90s next week. I don't feel like doing anything all summer. Colder weather is a great thing. It doesn't get as cold as yours does but it is a relief from the hot summer heat of AZ. Enjoy your day. Glad you feel the ambition that comes from a colder day. I forget by the end of summer what cold is. LOL PUT ON THAT SLOW COOKER!!

Hoping for a Better Day

Friday, October 01, 2010

I'm just hoping I have a better day today. It's not starting off the greaters. My cat decided to wake me up early (3:45). So, I am already tired and it isn't even 6:30. I will grab another cup of coffee, stand in the shower, and hope for the best.

The day went amok:(

Thursday, September 30, 2010

I worked all morning putting data into the computer at work. I went out for a walk at lunch. When I came back in the file was gone into computer-land somewhere. I spent all afternoon just getting back to where I was before lunch. I, for the life of me, don't know what happened.

Then, after work, I was supposed to meet someone for dinner. I waited about 20 - 25 minutes and he never showed up. So, I did what any other woman would do - I went shopping.

I'm going to bed early tonight and I hope tomorrow will be a better day.
