Tough day.,..

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Today was a tough one. Lots of busy and I'm bushed! It was a positive day, I'm not saying that I, in any way, was thinking negative thoughts, it was just too busy to think too much either
I will be SO glad when tax season is OVER with!! I am SO OVER IT!!!
The best part of busy days, is going to the gym afterward and working all the stress off! I didn't do that today, unfortunately, but I'm still walking in the mornings and getting my 10,000 steps in most every day, with a break once a week.
Tomorrow, we'll hit the gym after work, and I plan to work my tail off, letting go of the stress of today and tomorrow! I'm very much looking forward to it!
Right now, it's time for bed. Good night!

Made it through the weekend...

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Although it was a tough one because of the snow we had. We just did not feel like going out into it this morning to head to the gym! We did end up going out shopping as I have got to get new clothes for work. I've given all of my fat clothes away, so I don't have much to wear! LOL While it feels good, it's also hurting the pocket book some. Penneys had a great sale going on and I saved 30% on what I did get. Now I have some mix and match items I can wear.
I still can't believe I fit into size 8 to 10! I'm still looking at clothes in the bigger sections!
My doctor's not going to believe it when she sees me next Monday! With all of the weight I've lost, I'm really hoping that she'll be able to take me off of blood pressure and cholesterol meds. Here's hoping!
Tomorrow is the beginning of a brand new week and I'm not going to start it on other than a positive attitude! WOOHOO!!! BRING IT ON!!!

Finally the weekend!!!

Friday, March 19, 2010

This week has been SO busy! Work is the major part of that, but coming home every day to a dirty, messy house doesn't help. Being that we go to the gym 5 out of 7 days of the week, and don't usually get home before 6:30 or 7:00 pm, it's hard to find the time for Sparking.
On the plus side, I haven't been letting anything get me from a positive mood every day. Sure, it's been busy, but it's a good busy, most of the time and that makes the time fly. It makes for time that I don't think about co-workers.
My goal for this weekend is to eat more fruit and veggies. I haven't been doing too well in that department. I also plan to head to the gym tomorrow morning, early, then go to the thrift store to see if I can find some tops and skirts for work. I've had to empty more clothes from my closet and dresser simply because they don't fit anymore. I'm never going back to that size again, so why keep them? In the meantime I need new work clothes!!! emoticon I just pray that it doesn't snow so much that we can't go out.
Have a good night friends!

Fantastic Sunday!!

Sunday, March 14, 2010

This weekend has been very nice. We haven't had to watch the grandkids except for a couple of hours last night, and that was at bedtime. I miss them but I've really enjoyed the time to myself and the time with my hubby more.
I'm so close to my goal weight that I've been thinking about my reward. While I need a few more dresses for work, I'm not finding what I consider nice dresses for the office in my style that won't cost me an arm and a leg! I may have to shop a little farther out from where I'm used to shopping. Did I mention in one of my last blogs that I can now fit into a size 10?! emoticon
I've not been this size since high school, some 30 + years ago!
I may just need to give myself the reward of a manicure or pedicure when I've reached my goal.

Good Day today...

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

It was a pretty good day today. I haven't been able to get online much from being sick with the flu. Feeling better today and was able to get back to the gym, but I'm still taking it easy cause that can kick back in quickly. I don't want to be sick again, nor do I want to get anyone else sick.
Well, the problem with the lady at work that was not doing her job properly has been solved, although I don't know that it benefited the office much. She was fired. It seems that she was doing other things besides tracking most of the mail to me alone. So now we're down a person, soon to be two, with one of our other ladies due to have her baby any day. Once she's gone, I'll have to be the one to track mail to everyone, as long as there isn't a lot of it. If there is, then everyone in the office will have to take their share and track it themselves. I have other jobs that I need to take care of also, so it's not goiing to be fun trying to get everything caught up. On the bright side, if there is a bright side, it will only be for 6 weeks, if the mother to be doesn't decide to take more time than that off from maternity leave. The manager won't be hiring anyone new since no one will be able to take the time to train them. It's a small office, with a lot of work. I guess I can say "job security", but it still feels like over work to me.
We're able to work an hour overtime every day to help us get caught up, and it does help in that the phones aren't ringing early in the morning before 8:00 or after 4:30 in the evening. So, yeah we can get some done in that time period. I just have to prioritize my duties better with this added job.
The important thing is that I need to try to stay positive every day and not let the stress get to me. Tax season is almost over so we'll eventually start to see less mail and be able to get our desks cleared off.
Here's looking at a POSITIVE day tomorrow, both in thinking and action!! emoticon

    I'm glad that you're feeling better from the flu. I'm sorry to hear about the stress of work, but I'm also glad that the woman who was being a pain is gone. I hope when all this is done (tax season) that the work load will lessen enough that you can get some breathing time in for you. Great way to handle all this and I hope you have a great rest of week and weekend!

    That flu can kick your butt, so glad you are feeling better! That can't have helped at work either, especially w/ the stress you have there. Hope your workload doesn't get too bad, and you can handle it all! Good luck!
