Just another day in the life....

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Well it has been a busy but productive morning. Came in at the normal time for work. Then I went to the dentist. Came back and jumped back in to It. I seem to have a lot of stuff to do today. I did all my workout stuff this morning as usual. I know at some point it is supposed to give me more energy but so far it doesn't. It doesn't do much one way or the other as far as how I feel. I feel better because I weigh less but the exercise isn't doing much (other than helping with the weight loss and healthy life style which is great). Of course I have never been a fan of exercising so that could be part of it. Maybe I was just expecting too much too soon. (I do that sometimes ya know.) At any rate the day seems to be going by quickly which is good. My computers are behaving so far, unlike yesterday. That helps too. It is funny how all these little thing come together to make up a day in the life. It just depends on so many things for a person to decide if it is a good day or a bad day. It is ultimately up to me to decide. I usually opt for the good but somedays it is just pain instead of a pleasure. Just knowing that no matter how bad it is it could easily be worse helps me take a deep breath and carry on toward the end of the day. After all, "Tomorrow is another day!" (No drama intended!)

Monday Morning Email Woes

Monday, May 17, 2010

Here we are at another Monday. It is strange to me that we get into segments in our lives that one day just rolls into the next. Before too long a day, then a week, then a month and then a year is gone. It may not always feel like it is going fast enough esp. if you are waiting for vacation or something else good but it rolls right along with or without you noticing. This morning I got up and did my full Monday morning work week routine, got dressed and came to work. Things are perking along and I am waiting for a response from our help desk so I thought I would do my blog. I am a slave to points but it is a great motivational tool. I am not usually able to do it at work but so far today is filled with a lot of waiting. My email box is messed up and I am stuck until it gets fixed. Oh well at least my healthy life style is working even if my email isn't!!

The Last Day of the Weekend

Sunday, May 16, 2010

I had a great day yesterday. I slept late. I got up and did my 10 min. FF&FU segment plus 45 min on my life cycle. I ran a couple errands. The my hubby and I walked for 45 minutes. I can't go fast because my broken toe is still a problem. It was three weeks ago yesterday that I broke it. This morning it is swollen again so I will need to let it rest. I did my FF&FU DVD and then 30 min on the bike. I was looking forward to walking after the race is over but I should let my foot rest. I will not enjoy this week if I don't. Running around the office is not fun when you are limping. It is hard to give myself permission to rest my foot because it feels like being lazy. I have spent years being lazy and am determined not to do that now. I know it isn't laziness but being smart so my toe will get better. It just feels lazy. It is Sunday and my foot needs the rest. The lesson on this is sometimes it pays to be smart and rest a (stupid) broken part!

Lazy Saturday

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Not really. I already did my 10 minute work out and 45 minutes on my Life Cycle. It just feels lazy because no one is putting pressure on me for anything today. I bought my plane ticket to go for a visit with my parents on Father's Day weekend. It will be sad to see all the damage in Nashville. They live in Lafayette and I fly into Nashville. I haven't been since Christmas. My Mom told me today that The Hard Rock had re-opened so that is a good sign. I am sure it will take some time to get back to normal there. I am going to run a few errands and then I am free to enjoy the weekend any way I see fit. I think I might take a walk later. My toe is still bugging me but I can limp along slowly and still get to take a nice walk with my husband. I now have five friends who have signed up with me now. It is fun to get the points plus it is some body I am around all the time in case I'm having a weak moment. Sometimes I need the support of the entire Spark People crowd partly because they are not people who I see all the time or even ever. Sometimes it works better to have a co-worker or close friend to be able to go to or have them call you out on something. It is nice to have the option though. All bases covered. I was a Girl Scout so I like to be prepared for all eventualities (at least most of them). Well I'm off to enjoy the rest of my weekend!!

Happy Friday morning !

Friday, May 14, 2010

I made to the end of another work week. Whew! Sometimes I wonder why I am so devoted. I am going to have a nice laid back weekend. The weather in ABQ is supposed to be high 70s/ low 80s and sunny. I think I will go for a walk or two this weekend. I have some errands to run tomorrow and that is the extent of my plans. I will do my Fit, Firm & Fired Up both days of course. I finished my second week this morning. I still find it to be perfect for me. I hate exercise and doing it in small doses seems to be best. At least with the Life Cycle I can have my laptop and distract myself while checking emails and doing my Spark Points. I lost again today so I know the importance of exercise and nutrition while trying to get to a healthy weight but that doesn't mean I will ever like to exercise. As long as I can keep coming up with reasons to talk myself into it I will be pleased as punch (or maybe a martini). Hope everyone has a great weekend!
