Tuesday and Counting

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I had another good day diet/healthy lifestyle wise. It is one thing in my life I can control so maybe I am finally taking advantage of it. I am continually amazed when someone Spark emails me to say they think I am an inspiration. If they only know how much trouble I have had over the years with diet, harmful thoughts and exercise, they wouldn't think I was much to brag about. I have been doing much better since I fully committed to SP. That has been the defining factor that has made this attempt successful and long term. They didn't really teach me anything I didn't already know and tried a thousand times before. It just made sense to me this time. Everything clicked. I periodically re-read The Spark for motivation and to get my head in the right frame of mind. That really helps me. I seem to pick up some new concept that I didn't notice in the first couple times i read it. That is always a good thing.

    Sounds to me like you have re-invented your process a couple of times along the way and learned a lot about yourself in the mean time. That is what its all about isnt it? Opening up our own personal stories and rewriting them when we need to?

    It is precisely because you have gone through all that you have that makes you inspiring, you have gone through all of that and turned it around!!! emoticon

Another weekend bites the dust!

Monday, August 09, 2010

I finally finished cleaning out my main closet this weekend. I am giving all my fat clothes away. I won't need them anymore. I also did the linen closet and some drawers in the master bedroom and bath. I know I am a little late on the "Spring" cleaning concept but I am just now getting to it. I hate that sort of thing but it will be sweeeeeet when it is finished. I need to do shoes and a couple of junk drawers and I will be finished with the master bed/bath rooms. Now if I can just get around to the kitchen. I have plenty of space but it is filled with stuff. I am not even sure what it all is. Apparently if you give me extra space I will fill it with crap. I am going to finish the master area tonight and then on to the kitchen!

    That is amazing what you have done already. I am trying to clean the garage and can't even get a wall done after like five solid days. Over the course of a month, but still.

It does go faster once you get going. It's getting started that takes me so long, LOL

Sundays are a blessing indeed!

Sunday, August 08, 2010

I am having a nice Sunday. I love the calm that is usually part of Sunday. I ran a bunch of errands yesterday. We are going to finally clean out the garage next weekend so I went and got a push broom and big mop plus cleaning supplies. No excuses next weekend. I already have what I need so we can get up on Saturday and start after breakfast and exercise. It has been 2 years since we worked on it at all so it is dirty and cluttered. I know it won't be fun but it will be great when it is done. That is something I have always kind of done but now that I am a Sparker I truly understand the real value of being prepared for what you have planned. The best laid plans really can be derailed if you didn't plan for them. Hope everyone has a great week! Spread the spark!!

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!
