What a difference a day makes!

Saturday, August 07, 2010

Wow. Yesterday was an annoying overworked kind of day. Today is a great fun day. I got fantastic news yesterday. It has changed my outlook completely. I think next week will be tolerable even though I already know it is going to be stupid busy at work and equally busy at home. I am up to the challenge. I reached my revised goal weight this morning. I got to 150 and decided to go a little lower. I changed the goal to 142. I got that this morning. Last week I re-evaluated and decided to shoot for the middle of the healthy weight rage for my height. That would be 134. Even with the change in goal weight I am still only 8 pounds away. I can do this...I really can!

Geez...I heart Friday!

Friday, August 06, 2010

It is a strange thing for me to spend the first four days of the week wishing for the last three. Don't get me wrong...I have always enjoyed days off. This is something different. I crave the time away from work now. Maybe it is a sign of the work times these days. Maybe as I get older I am just more appreciative of my time. Either way I am thrilled that I only have 9 more hours at work until I am free to do as I please. Everyone is so stressed out and over worked we make quiet a motley crew. I am trying to live by the concept that if I do my best and treat everyone the way I would like to be treated it will all work itself out. Let's hope so. I am really going to have to take some time off to rest and refill my patience quota but with the future uncertain as far as when we will move and where, I am hanging on to 16 vacation days like my life depended on it. I really want to try to take 2 months off between jobs once we figure out where we are going. I don't want to start a new position fried like a piece of chicken. Only time will tell. The longer unemployment goes on the less time I will be able to take. Hopefully this too shall pass. Here is to a great and restful weekend!

    Spend time on yourself this weekend. Yoga, meditation and exercise help me out greatly when the stress at work escalates.

Hope your Friday goes quickly so you can get to Friday night!

Short & Sweet-ish

Thursday, August 05, 2010

I will be so glad when the weekend gets here, I don't know if I can wait. I am re-reading The Spark because my outlook is becoming so small and bleak. It is an amazing book. I recommend it to everyone. I hope to be able to work my own little miracle life like the guys in the book. I am definately working on it. I have a ways to go though. I know it will happen. It is just really hard to stay positive right now. Frazzled is a good word to describe me right now. I am doing well on my calories and exercise. Work is more demanding every day. Hopefully once everyone is back from being off it will become tolerable again. In the mean time I have The Spark to get me through it. I am very thankful for that.

Working for the Weekend

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

It's Wednesday and the weekend is getting closer. I am going to try experimenting with the SP Boot Camp videos. I may not be ready for them but I will never know until I try. I have not been feeling too well the last few days. I was supposed to go to a friend's brother's funeral last night and I started throwing up around 4PM. I felt really bad about not going but I really didn't feel well. I went home and had some soup and went to bed. Unfortunately I woke up around 3:30 and couldn't go back to sleep. I don't feel great but I do feel much better than yesterday afternoon. Here's to hoping today is good! This weekend is tax free back to school shopping and although I don't have kids I love to shop! Maybe an iPad will make me feel better.

    Hope you feel better. Don't overdo it with the Boot Camp video if you are honestly not feeling well.

Tuesday Rolls Along

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

Here we are at Tuesday. I had such a bad headache for y yesterday it seems like I have a post headache hang over. It really makes you appreciate not having a head ache. I even enjoyed (sort of) my hour on my Life Cycle. I am up to 55 minutes on Level three as of today. I will probably hang here for the rest of this week and all of next week. I should be able to add a few minutes at level 4 a few times an hour. I am still doing the FF&FU but I may try the boot camp week from Coach Nicole in the next few weeks to see how I do. The thing is, I really like the FF&FU series. It would be nice if it came in a 15 minute a day version. It is so easy to use it, I would love to have another version as I work my way to better fitness. I am sure I can find some videos on the site that will do just that. I may work on that this weekend.
