One of the things I'm really bad with is procrastination. I have a sizable list of things I put of, have been putting off, continue to put off, etc. One of those things, for the longest time, has been my weight loss efforts - but I can take that off the list. My weight loss efforts are sometimes slow, but they are there.
Mowing the yard has been put off a little too long. My poor dog has been high-stepping when taking care of her business. And my mower kept conking out because it struggled with the height/amount of grass. I could pull out my excuse parade, but the bottom line is that I hadn't made time to mow sooner - found time to take a nap, but interestingly enough didn't find 45 minutes to mow my yard until today.
I didn't trim the edges, but I did get the yard mowed. Even that looks goo gobs better! And my doggie doesn't have to risk spraining a doggie ankle navigating the terrain.

Not long ago I got me a new pedometer (I call them stepometers, because they measure the steps we take). I finally found one I actually like!
In years past, I've bought different ones that have either fallen off the second time I sat down, stood up... Or counted steps while I've done nothing but sat in a chair, then not counted steps when I went up and down a flight of stairs... So frustrating!!
Well, with this new toy of mine, I don't have those issues anymore. This new one has a really sturdy belt clip - PLUS an additional backup clip. It had the easiest set up for a stepometer I've come across in all the ones I remember using before. Easy to read feedback (they keep it simple). Nice size readout. Keeps track of my steps for the previous seven days.
Can you tell I like my new toy??

The calendar may say Wednesday, but it's been more of a Blah Day for me. I blame work. Feeling both blah and anxious and confused and disinterested and other contrary emotions. Not quite able to fully embrace this change that's happening. Trying to, but too distracted with trying to take care of so many things at one time that I don't know how to do and getting mixed signals as to when to go where for the plethora of answers I need. I feel like no matter what I do, it's not good enough. I'm making more mistakes and that's just not a good thing - especially if folks are looking to find fault in my work. Not trying to give them examples!
Trying to stay positive, but struggling right now.

There are many times when I don't eat right. But the good news within the bad is that on those occasions, my food choices are better than they used to be and my portion sizes are smaller than they once were -- and I'm not going back nearly as many times (for seconds and what not) as I used to.

So, I'm trying to blog more and I have a sneaking suspicion a recurring topic will be my job. Today was one of those days. I used to really, really like my job - until earlier October - when the team's roster changed...for the worse. But I'm not gonna go into that now.
We have a lot of growth at my job (it's true!) and there have been recent re-org-type changes. These changes include, but are not limited to a new manager with limited knowledge of the overall picture and new duties for me that 1) I didn't ask for and 2) I'm not being compensated for. The latter is not so much an issue for me.
Here's my issue with today. I got reprimanded for doing what was right a time before, but it was wrong today. There's enough that's confusing these days without having the same thing be right one time, then wrong the next. I don't get it. I could ramble on, but I'll save that for another time. Heavy sigh.
I do recognize I am fortunate with my employment, as there are many not working who would like to be. Out of the things I have to complain about, I'm thankful to have a job on that list - even when it drives me crazy.
