Horrible Friday Turns Out Okay (in the end)!

Friday, May 21, 2010

Wow. I always love Friday but not today. I knew it would be a rough day at work. This was the worse day of the year last year but we changed computer programs for this year. It was about as bad as I thought it would be. We only got about half way through the project so it will have to continue next week as we have time to get it finished. At least everyone was understanding after they got over the initial shock of exactly how much work was involved. We did go to lunch as a group and laughed and laughed. I think it was the part of the day that made the rest survivable. It underlined the fact that no matter what part you played in the project we are all in it together until we get it finished. That is one of the good things about working with some of your closest friend and liking all of your co-workers (at least 99% of the time). I am tired mentally and physically. I have a doctor's appointment for my foot on Tuesday. It isn't getting better and it has been four weeks. It is ironic that after I finally decide to get serious about exercise I break my toe. It really limits what I can do as far as strength training goes. If I am going to get the last 15-20 off I will need all hands (and toes) on deck. My knee on the same leg is starting to be tender by the end of the week too. I am sure it is because I still limp a little. It may just be that it will take more time to heal but I want to make sure I am doing everything I can. I am going to sleep late in the morning and I can't wait. I love the weekend days that I get to get up whenever I choose to. There are definitely times that I appreciate the little things in life! Here's to a great recuperative weekend!

Thursday is flying by! Woo Hoo!!

Thursday, May 20, 2010

I just called and left a message with my doctor about my broken toe. Tomorrow is 4 weeks and it is still swollen and painful. It isn't discolored or cold but I think 4 weeks is a long time to hobble around. I hope I don't wind up in a goofy boot or something. That is no was for a shoe-aholic to spend part of the open toed season! Not too much going on today. I am meeting a friend at a new salad place for lunch in a little while. It is a place called Salad Bowl. It sounds interesting. It will be nice to get out of the office for a few minutes too. The exercise plan and eating healthy plan is coming along. I am worried that my toe will interfere with my exercise. There are a few things on a couple of the FF&FU programs that I have trouble doing so I just keep doing as good as I can or I stay on something that doesn't bother my foot longer. Hopefully my Doc will say I just have to suck it up until it is better. I just want to make sure I am not doing any permanent damage that I will regret later. Well I am going to get back to it. I am having a busy but fast moving day.

Cami Shapers Rock!

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Not much to report today. I am sticking with my plan. I eat correctly, exercise and wait while the ounce slowly leave me. I am excited about it actually. I got a new skirt for Soft Surroundings and it is a medium. Now I just need to find some cute tops on sale so I don't look like and orphan in hand-me-downs. I have been trying different brands of cami shapers. I have a couple Flexies and a couple Spanx. I just ordered a brand I haven't heard of called Sculptz. They look like a good choice. The flexies are great unless your top is too low. The Spanx are really comfy except they come up pretty far on your back. The Sculptz look like they are lower in the front and back plus they seem to have a bra as the basis with the suck-it-in material attached to that. I think if it fits I will like it. These type things are going to be a necessity until I get to my goal and have some skin removed. Oh well....there are worse problems to have!! (wink, wink)

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!!
