Ready to face the week!

Monday, March 05, 2012

Took the weekend off exercising. Was really achy and hurting yesterday. Maybe I should have worked out some.

Hubby went to work to see if he could fix my computer but he isn't able to so after 1 3/4 hours he called it quits. Will call the help desk this AM and see what might be going wrong.

Enjoyed massage Saturday. It is so relaxing and comforting.

Off to make it a great week!


Fabulous Friday

Friday, March 02, 2012

Well here we are at Friday! Cold finally decided to leave...yesterday didn't have to take cold medicine. Still blowing my nose but on the downhill side of it.

Went to hairdresser last night and got trimmed up and colored up. Went to Trader Joe's to stock up on healthy foods, sold back a big bag of books to second hand book store...busy evening.

Co Worker is really struggling with family issues. I think the co-workers problems help to really drain me. Came back refreshed to face it all. Guess I load it all on my back and half feel like I'm going through it also. Keeping her lifted in prayer and her family. She takes everything so hard and when it's your children it is so difficult. You just don't want to believe they would steal from you and it's breaking her heart. She's always enabled their poor money habits by her example and kept giving them money she didn't have. Now she needs to stay strong and have tough love and it is so hard for her. Either she stands strong now or they will go through much worse down the road.

Busy weekend...when aren't they?

Off to make it a great day!


First Time Someone Noticed

Thursday, March 01, 2012

Went to Curves last night and the worker said I looked so tall and thin...what have I been doing? At first I started to not me...must be the color...but then I remembered to say Thank You. This has been a long slow journey. Somehow on our last vacation...I didn't seem to gain any weight. Think we just were so physically active all the time.

Last night kinda recharged my determination to keep going. Got a long road as the pounds seem to fight coming off. I am healthier. I get better quality foods and learning to eat less and seem content. Almost walked at lunchtime yesterday. It was gorgeous out but very windy. Decided it would blow my hair to pieces and opted not to....but enjoyed my time in the park eating my packed lunch.

Off to make it a great day!

    Isn't it wonderful when people start to notice!? It really does give you the motivation to keep on going. Sometimes we get so focused on the numbers that we don't see much of a change in ourselves. It's only when others realize that we take a step back and say, "yeah! I DID do that!" Good for you!

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Co-worker was really having a tough time yesterday. Having a lot of personal issues. She is making some good steps through it. Called a former minister to help them step through this journey. Seems like everything around her is crumbling. The major issue is they think adult son stole 2,000 from them and she is heart broken and hubby and her differ how to handle it.

I think some of the drama at work is what helps to wear me out. I care about them and usually get personally involved.

The scales which my hubby says are always off...I have decided even if they are I have lost weight on them and that is what is counting...doesn't show that I gained any weight on our 2 week trip. We got in a lot of exercising daily. More than usual for me. Believe that helped. Very little sitting.

Hubby and son heading to PA to pick up car for son. Nice to have him under our roof. Didn't see him as he keeps crazy hours like hubby and didn't get here until 11 or so...after I was in bed.

So I get one night by myself. Tonight is line dancing so won't really have much time by myself.

Off to make it a great day!

    You are a wonderful person to show such concern for your fellow man - just take care that you don't burn yourself out......I've seen it happen often and it's not pretty.....

Here's wishing the best for your co-worker!

    I love the fact that you have turned some rather 'unusual' work incidents into something that you are being more positive about. Remember a while back I said something to the affect of this co-worker probably going through some stuff personally, hence the distraction and rudeness at work. I'm glad to see you are helping her through it. Go You!!!.

Have a great day ~ Donna

Back to Work

Monday, February 27, 2012

Decided to go back for two hours more sleep this AM due to Cold. Was a good idea as I feel better my first day back to work.

Co-worker having a rough time dealing with issues at home. Our Debbie Downer has really changed and is a nicer more compassionate person.

Off to make it a great day!
