30-Days of Music challenge--The Finale (Finally!!)

Thursday, June 30, 2011

day 16 - a song that you used to love but now hate:
wow--this IS hard. i'm such a nostalgia hound, i don't know if there's anything i DON'T like.

day 17 - a song that you hear often on the radio:

gotta admit, i don't really listen to the radio, mostly cuz i'm not a huge fan of top 40. i think i'm just too old for it.
day 18 - a song that you wish you heard on the radio:

i wish my "joint" channel on sirius xm played more roots, rock reggae and traditional ska instead of some of the newer crap and believe me--it IS crap . however, if i could hear anything it would probably be King - Love and Pride

"Ever Had It Blue" by Style Council from The Singular Adventures

Do you ever sometimes just feel, you know, fat?

Thursday, June 16, 2011

well, sadly, this is ONE of those times. not sure exactly what it is but the number on the scale ain't helping much either. thing is, i KNOW i am not consuming 3500 calories extra calories a day. if anything--i'm not consuming ENOUGH which is itself its OWN problem.

however, as in past years, this is my busy season and like other offices across this country, we too, have been downsized even though i work for a public university. in fact, we've been downsized for the past 3 years and forced to do more with less staff AND less $$$ thanks to mandatory furloughs. this time 3 years ago just so happens to ALSO correlate with the start of my weight "creepback" as i like to call it. it's been a rollercoaster ever since.

so, while my diet has not been "perfect", my workouts have been even LESS so. no energy, not enough sleep, not enough fuel (i'm petering out 15-20 minutes into a 45-50 minute workout which is admittedly NOT normal for me)...something has GOT to give and it simply canNOT be me. emoticon

    Just do the best you can and make sure you don't beat yourself up over it, that never solves anything. You can do this! Hope things slow down for you soon!

    thanks for the comments guys!

currently i am working on slowing down during my workday--it's hectic now and that ain't going away for at least a couple weeks. it's like that this time of year EVERY year. i get so caught up in my work routine that i forget to take time for myself in little ways through out the day like going to the little girls room for christ'ssake.

@mipcy1: i appreciate the tips on healthy grazing. that is something i can do.

    You can do it. I've had to resort to snacking through most of the day to actually hit reasonable numbers and not end up bingeing on something tasty at the end of the day and going way over. that's how I got where i am now. Not eating enough most days and way too much on others. I'm trying to learn to even everything out and eat reasonable amounts, especially when I'm really busy.

    Hard when life is so crazy- all those things can factor into the scale not moving as well.Do you see any changes in sight or what is your plan?

    You can do it, just stay focused. Remember that exercising gives you more energy. Stay positive and don't dwell on the negatives. emoticon
