Goodness gracious what a day this has been.
Woke up not feeling well but I am pretty tough so I decide I can go to work. I have to be pretty sick to miss work. I didn't exercise yesterday and I probably won't today. Uck! So I get the kiddo off to daycare without too much of a fight. Get on the road.. and WHAM... I am stuck in traffic!!! Something is going on I am thinking.. I am never stuck in traffic this far back. Great an accident.. geez!! Took me 1 hr and 45 minutes to go 26 miles. Now I think I know what the people in CA deal with all the time! I was not even moving half the time! It was so frustrating. Besides I am one of those people that HATES being late to work.. I feel behind for the whole rest of the day.. Now normally something like this would make me want to stop and get tacos.. but I didn't I am so proud.
I get to work and I see that my bud is the Daily Spotlight page today.. penpriddy. She is the one that introduced me to Sparks and has been a huge motivator in my life. We work together and I know I can always go to her when I am frustrated (which has been a lot lately) or just plain down on myself. I am so happy to hear that she is in the spotlight she deserves it!
I love the changes to the Sparks Team page! I LOVE being able to have 3 sticky topics!! It's wonderful! I think it will help me as a team leader that much more. Being a good team leader is very important to me so this will help.
Well I had my "checkup" in stage 4 today. It wasn't my normal weigh in day so I was a little nervous about that. But I show a 2 lb loss!! I am so excited!! I had to move my weight loss tracker on my page but anyone can see that I have had my fare share of a plateau here lately. Last month I lost 2 wks in a row and thought I had broken it only to go right back up. Well this will make my 3rd week in a row with a loss so I am back to where I was before the plateau finally!! I really want to get below 230 so that will be a good incentive to me. Then I will be over halfway to my first goal!! We will see on Friday what the official weight loss is. I hope it stays at 2 lbs or more!!
What else happened today.. hmm lemme think.. I got an email from a long lost friend that just got married to a jerk that she barely knows and wouldn't you know she is pregnant already. This is the last thing she needs is a baby.. she can't even take care of herself. Smokes and drinks although she swears she hasn't had any since she found out..I worry for her... and the baby. I hope she is up for this challenge in her life because it sure isn't easy being a parent. And nobody can tell you how hard it is going to be until you experience it yourself.
I am planning a surprise party for my hubbies 40'th birthday. I haven't gotten many rsvp's yet but I think most of the people that I invited will be there they just aren't the rsvp type.. It should be fun. I am going on vacation before it which so far he hasn't put two and two together. He thinks that day is our annual family reunion. I pray that the weather is nice that day!!!! I can't wait until vacation!! I need to get some decorations, order the cake, go to Sams and get some of the food etc.. I hope this doesn't get too expensive but I have alloted some money aside for it. He deserves it! He's the love of my life and I want to show him how much I love him and everyone else does also.
Well.. I'm sure more has happened and I just can't remember. Oh I bought a new Dell computer yesterday. I bought my old one in 99' so it's pretty dang old. That's why I don't get on Sparks much on the weekend it locks up on me all the time etc.. this one should get me through the next several years w/o a problem. I am so excited I can't wait to get it.
Ok this has gotten really long.. Hope the rest of my day goes ok.. so much has happened already!
