The Buddy Challenge Thus Far

Monday, September 07, 2009

Well, today's bonus challenge was to blog about the buddy challenge...and, in a past blog, i promised to keep everyone apprised to it... so this is taking care of both :) i am really enjoying this challenge...and though some days i have trouble meeting my goal on exercise, it's really given me a kick in the pants in other area's of my life... and the people on team one are absolutely awesome.... i love being teamed with them...and hope they like being teamed with me... i think they do :) The buddy challenge we had a couple years ago was great, but this one i think is even better...and i am hoping we can do it say... 6 months emoticon

We still have the rest of September to go...but by the way things got off to such a good start, i say this is the kick in the pants i needed to get me back to center.

    I have not been part of LAP or the challentes Kitty. But, having had you as my co-leader on OPOD was fantastic! You are dependable, full of kindness, compassion, caring for all. You have taken your responsibility to the enth degree as if you were getting more than compensated for it (unlike some of the co-leaders we have had in the past who did not think even visiting the team once a month by the leader was a necessary requirement- do you remember that person?!) Thanks for being my SP and FB friend:) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You were one of my first Spark friends, and I will always appreciate your invitation to join LAP. I participated in the first LAP challenge two years ago and remained close friends with my team mates. The support I have received from them during the challenge and since then has been invaluable.

I feel this current challenge will deepen many of my SP friendships. I've always said what I value most about SP is the mutual support. Thank you for all you do for our LAP team, my friend.

Buddy Challenge Day 3

Thursday, September 03, 2009

Wohoo!!!! I made it to day 3. To say today was a struggle, would be an understatement. First i find out ds had not taken trash to curb, but that was because he was busy doing other things, including stuff his sis had him do, so i told her to take out the trash...that caused a big arguement...this after i worked on the house to get it somewhat clean before i went to i wasn't happy anyways...then i found out my phone bill had gone through a couple days too early, making my checking account overdrawn...then work...uhg...i got 2 of those kind of customers every customer rep dreads...especially when you are already busy...they needed something more than you could provide, and it had to be right now... and the worse part was they both called at the same i am trying to accommodate both customers and do my other work....the one boss was on the dock, leaving me alone in the office (the others were not in yet) finally, after putting them both on hold and calling for boss to come rescue me, he dealt with customer 2 while i dealt with customer 1... except that his freight was missing, as does happen sometimes, but he wanted it NOW!!! and nobody knew where it was... so through out the day, this customer called...and called...and called some more... it was found...thank goodness, and arrangements to have it delivered asap...i then leave early to go get some money to cover what was overdrawn and for the checks that would be coming in tomorrow... so i rush home to find paperwork that i knew i had some where...but i knew where it wasn't.... after 20 minutes...i looked there...guess where it was...yep...right go get money, run to bank, more behind than i wanted to be...picked up some soy butter at grocery store, then off to get dd1 from school....the road in front of school is under that was fun...then off to get gas...but get beind someone going 15 mph below the speed limit...uhg....get gas and get to dd2's school about 1 minute before she comes down... drop dd1 off at home, then home to cook dinner...ds in bad mood... and then as he was cleaning...he breaks the as i am trying to clean, i have to now fix that... i haven't had time for my eye med, nor the hot pack i'm suppose to put on it all day...just now winding down to do that.... aaaaahhhhh... time for bed.... as for the challenges, i somehow did meet each some...yea me!!!

and off to bed...for tomorrow is Friday and the end of a long week, but the beginning of a 3 day weekend!!! ye haw!!!

Buddy Challenge Day 1 & 2

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

So far so good. I have managed to do all 7 daily challenges and the bonus challenge each day. Will say though....the exercise one is the hardest. I am doing it, but it's just barely.... this morning i had so much to do...and no time to do it...but i decided to do some of my heavy cleaning, which alone is cardio...but then i added some dancing...may as well make it fun and really get that heart

My Personality

Monday, August 31, 2009

Ok, my dear friend, Nita, posted this on her blog, and i thought this would be fun to do.... and i promised to post my here's the color quiz at i would love to see your results also :)

Your Existing Situation
Needs excitement and constant stimulation. Willingly participates in activities that are thrilling and offer adventure. emoticon

Your Stress Sources
"Feels that life must give more than it has and that her hopes and desires should be fully achieved. her existing circumstances are causing her to be anxious and worry; she is on edge and fears her missing out on opportunity. Eagar to avoid future setbacks or loss of status, she tries to make herself notice and to standout and is need of security." emoticon

Your Restrained Characteristics
"Demanding and picky in her relationships, but careful not to bring out conflict or disagreements and this may decrease her chances of achieving her goals and ideas."
Current situations force her into compromise and placing her own hopes and desires on hold for the time being. (ok, this could be true)

"He is able to find satisfaction through sexual activity, but can be restless and emotionally distant so she never really gets too involved with others." (uh..ok then...)

OK...I am not even going into the desired object part...oh

Your Actual Problem
Is afraid she will be held back from obtaining the things she wants leading her to act out with a hectic intensity. emoticon

Your Actual Problem #2
"Is disappointed and let down, feels there is no point in making new goals as they will leave her feeling the same way. Looking for friendly, pleasant relationships with others, who will further develop her intellect. Feels her current relationships are empty and holding her back. Reacting with an intense desire to become involved in various activities aimed at achieving her goals." (yea...that's

So according to my color test that is me...according to me...i don't think so. Of course... maybe i am in

    Hehehe!! I do believe it was not 100% accurate for me either, considering how I have learnt to assert myself and speak up. Most of us women have this " avoiding conflicts and wanting smooth relationships but, instead giving up our own assertiveness to achieve actual mental peace!! So, really its a blanket statement"

emoticon for blogging aobut your results!
