Yesterday was a good day. Didn't sleep well last night, but I'm energized from my morning walk that I know I can make through the day!
I'm thinking about making an appointment for md to see if I can't get off blood pressure meds. I don't think I need them anymore. I know I'll wow her with my continued weight loss also!

Today was a very positive day! Of course, we're still really busy at work, but I didn't let any of that get me down. I was able to finish a couple of projects and correct some mistakes, so I felt really good about my day!
I was energized by my morning walk and have ended the day with over 16,400 steps for the day. Tomorrow is a new day, and I'm hoping to make it to 20,000 by the end of the day. Of course, tomorrow is gym day, so I should be able to make it easily.
I have a doctor's appointment Friday, so while I don't expect that I'll be able to get off my medication, I'm hopeful that he'll adjust the dosage.
Have a good night my friends.

Today was a MUCH better day! As a Spark friend mentioned, "we all have the winter blues."
Thank you to those of you who posted the kind comments on my blog about my bad day. They really brightened my day and made me smile. It's nice to have the support when it's needed.
I'm back on track, which started this morning with my morning walk around the office. An hour and a half later and I hit my 10,000 step goal. I stayed on plan all day and got on the elliptical after work, mostly to relieve some stress from the day. I'm beat, ready for bed and looking foward to a GREAT day tomorrow!
Again, thank you my spark friends for your generous and kind comments.
Have a great night and a Blessed tomorrow!

I did not have a very good day today. It's been snowing all day, we lost power for about 4 hours. We had to start up the generator just to keep the house warm because of the grandchildren and to keep the sump pump working so that our basement wouldn't flood. It was a very stressful day.
Tomorrow is my daughter's 23rd birthday, and we can't do anything for her. I'm feeling guilty about that too. I know, money is tight for everyone, but why does it have to be on birthdays? She's a good girl, though, and says she understands and is not worried about it. It still makes me feel guilty.
It also was not a good weekend for food. I haven't been to the gym since last Thursday, not because I don't want to go, but I needed a break since all of the walking I've been doing every morning gave me a big blister on my foot, which hurts like the dickens! Because I've been having all this "free time" I've been grazing more, and not choosing good food. Thankfully we don't have much in the way of "bad" foods in the house, but I still over did it on some foods, especially yesterday. Today wasn't quite as bad, but I still haven't burned the calories I could have if I'd gone to the gym. I'm not going to step on the scale for another week. Hopefully I can repair the damage over this week and lose whatever I gained.
I'm thinking of all of my friends on SP, and hoping everyone has had a better weekend than I have had. I wanted every one of my friends know, also, that I'm sorry I don't post, or spend more time on SP than I do. The majority of the time I do spend online is on my phone at work, since I can't get online on my work computer, and sometimes in the evening before I go to bed. The weekends are hard also, because dh and I are usually babysitting our grandchildren and they take up a lot of our time. Please don't think that I don't care. I do! My time is short. That's all there is to it.
Have a good night everyone. Let's start this new week off in a more POSITIVE attitude and make better plans for ourselves for the week!

I'm not saying that I haven't stayed on the positive side of my thoughts and/or emotions. It's just been really busy at work. I'm so worn out when I get home from work that it's hard to post anything positive. lol It will get worse before it gets better, I'm afraid. It's tax season and work has been crazy!
I've been able to stay on plan every day, except for today. Today has been the only slip I've made in a long time. I'm not going to beat myself up about it, since it is only one slip, but I'm going to try to destress myself when I get off work, when I get home so that it doesn't happen again.
Have a good night, friends.
