Cold Tuesday

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Okay so here I'm off work again today, but unlike yesterday where I fiddled the day away with my friend at a mall, today I was VERY accomplished. I got up this morning, got myself together & conquered the garage. I pulled everything off the 2 shelving units, went through everything, loaded up the car with the stuff going to Goodwill, reorganized what was left, called my neighbor to see if she wanted the other shelving unit (she did), got it together & made the Goodwill run. Woo hoo! I got it done. It was SO nice driving into the garage so much less crowded! Love that!

I've got food in the crockpot, fixed a healthy lunch & am now kicked back for a bit. I have other things to do, but no big hurry now. So I had a play day AND a home work day - love it.

I weighed this morning & I'm down another 1.5 pounds. Oh yeah! The weather is cold & damp, but supposed to warm up some tomorrow! But I love this time of year - it's all good!

I hope your Tuesday is going great! Sherli

    I don't suppose you'd like to come over and organize MY garage.....? DH keeps promising we'll be able to get 2 cars in there for winter, but we've turned on the furnace and still have 1 car hanging out in the driveway.....

Marvelous Monday!!!

Monday, October 08, 2012

Today has been an awesome day. I have today & tomorrow off - it was nippy, cold - and I was thinking how tired I was. My friend called & wanted to get together for some shopping & lunch, so I decided to go and enjoy the time. We had a ball - we both have lost weight, so we each bought some clothes in Coldwater Creek that were on sale...and a pretty good sale at that.

I split a salad with her for lunch - but it had a lot of things I didn't want to eat that I took off, so I had a teenie, tiny lunch - got home & was ravenous. Had some fruit & hung on until dinner. SO all is right in my world! LOL!

Enjoyed my day off - now tomorrow I really NEED to get busy in that garage. It's a big mess & I want to declutter, haul some things off, get rid of one shelving unit - hmmm -let's see what happens. I've got a plan - I'm hoping for the best!

Okay friends - hope you've had a marvelous Monday as well!

Have a great night! emoticon

Fall, glorious, Fall

Sunday, October 07, 2012

Well - it actually happened. We're having a REAL fall day - the high was 58 degrees, a bit overcast, a few drops of rain here & there - leaves turning! Woo hoo! I honestly thought fall would NEVER get here - we've been having 88-90 degree days and I have been NONE too happy with that for sure! But today - I'm a happy fall camper! LOL!

With fall comes the beautiful changing of the season: golden, orange, burgandy leaves - just spectular to see IF you live in an area where the leaves change (and I do). There are smells associated with fall: pumpkin bread baking; soups; turkey, etc. There's sweaters, boots to pull out - why one might even set a fire! Ahhh - fall is here.

So today, of course, I'm working all day, but with all my rest from yesterday I'm geared up to go. Have a meeting tonight; doing some speaking/coaching as a part of that time, so I'm feeling good. I've stayed on track food wise today AND this week - so I'm delighted!

I have tomorrow & Tuesday off - going to clean the garage; may attempt to paint a piece of furniture I bought not long ago - and then again, I may just veg out. I think I'll play it by ear as NOTHING is crutial AND will still be waiting for me on Friday or Saturday when I have some more days off. So it's all good!

So while I bask in the fall afterglow - I must skidaddle onto the next thing on the today's agenda. I hope you have an awesome rest of the weekend!

    We went straight from too hot to lots of rain. It's drizzly and cool today. I'm waiting for a crisp, cool sunny day to say it's really fall! At least I got my fall veggies in the ground before most of the rain! Gonna be back in the 80s by the end of the week,though...Enjoy your fall, whatever you end up doing!

Saturday lazies

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Okay, I'm having a serious case of the lazies. I'm so tired & have been working a lot lately, but not sure I've got the "umph" to get busy today. Maybe I need another cup of coffee.

Now is it really lazy NOT to tackle a huge job like cleaning out the garage? Is it really lazy to not want to start the painting project of the new/old buffet??? Is it really lazy to not want to get dressed & just have a PJ day??? Probably, but I think I'm talking myself into a lazy Saturday!!

Hey, I know myself good enough to know that I won't be totally lazy ALL day - I'll get some moxie about me & do a few things. I may do some crockpot cooking, will probably pick up the downstairs & some laundry...OK, I'm talking myself out of a totally lazy Saturday & into a sort of lazy day!!!! Guess that will do me!

Hope your Saturday is what you want it to be!!! Enjoy the weekend!

Getting into the game

Friday, October 05, 2012

You know, it's easy to talk about losing weight; we can even know a LOT about weight loss; what works for us - but the truth is, it's a daily challenge. My challenge is just staying in the game. Most of the time, I do OK, but occasionally I find myself thinking outside the parameters I've set for myself - not forever, but for right now.

Knowing myself like I do - I have to keep giving myself a good talking to & yell "STAY IN THE GAME" - I'll be OK, I'm having a moment!

I've been crazy busy for weeks & have had my apple cart tossed over. Too much coming my way - mostly good, but still too much for one person to keep up with....but while I realize that things might not completely be slowing down, I need to get back into the game, commited & ready to go.

How's your game? You doing OK or are you struggling? You may have to do what I'm doing today - give yourself a talkin' to!

Have a GREAT Friday!

    Funny how much we can learn about losing weight and sometimes I even give great advice to others, but I'm rarely doing it until recently!

    I WOULD give myself a talking to....but at the moment, my mouth is full...... I think we've identified why I'm struggling!
