Someone at work yesterday asked "have you lost weight?" I sadly reported "No, I haven't" and she said "well you look like you've lost weight." Those are the nicest words anyone can say! :-)
While I haven't lost any pounds, I'm trying to make better habits, and perhaps maybe that small step is changing my body slightly. For almost 2 weeks I've been drinking the recommended amount of water each day and I've stopped eating after 9 pm. I'm pretty happy about that!
I'm also happy to have received that compliment...it made my day.

I recently saw blog on people and how they tell themselves "NO". It's funny to me that we have to make boundaries like that with ourselves regarding food. I think saying "YES" all the time with eating is what got us here in the first place. I find myself trying to talk myself out of things like ...... eating at night! It's hard to say "no" when you are so hungry... I find this to be the most challenging task so far. I will overcome this night time eating! It's so terrible to come home from work and eat a full meal at 10p, 11p, or even midnight and then go to bed regretting that you ate. My new theory that a stable/consistent eating schedule is what I need. Even though my work schedule is unpredictable, that doesn't mean that my eating schedule has to be the same way. I'm going to create some sort of regular eating routine so that I can say "NO" when it comes to eating at night......
What are some creative ways you all say "NO"???

Well...I've been hit with the lazy bug. Boy, I'm finding it hard to be motivated lately. Although I did muster up the motivation to clean the house the other day, I'm finding that I'm tired of working. I'm finding it hard to motivate myself to do the things I need to do to prepare for getting a new job (i.e. working on my resume), actually searching for jobs is a daunting task. But I'm currently not happy with my situation and want it to change sooner rather than later... MUST MOTIVATE SELF... what I really want to do right now is play. Do fun things, and forget about what ails me... (i.e. bills, & money).
Well, I'm off to go find some inspiration (although I'd like it to just fall in my lap!!!) HA! Wouldn't that be nice?

Well, I was not happy when I learned yesterday that I had to be at one at 7:30 this morning (I wasn't supposed to be here until 8:30). An hour makes so much difference...I just hope I don't crash near the end of the day because I'd like to get a walk in tonight when I get home....I'd also like to finish up some cleaning around the house...why is it so hard to motivate yourself to clean? I wish someone would just come do a really thorough cleaning at my house....the problem then is that I still have trouble maintaining it on any sort of a regular basis....(much like exercise I guess)
It's funny how the "patterns" in our lives carry through so many different aspects...."I'll clean tomorrow, I'll exercise tomorrow, I'll eat better tomorrow"... maybe once I can get myself to regularly exercise, the rest will fall into place.

Well, I had a productive weekend. Saturday I worked for most of the day, and was able to get out and enjoy the sunshine after work by taking a nice walk around my neighborhood. Then an unexpected visit with an old friend topped off the evening.
Saturday my dad was gracious enough to put in my new window air-conditioners, and we had dinner too....so it was a nice weekend.
Hope everyone had a nice weekend....
