Where Has The Time Gone...

Friday, June 24, 2011

I feel like it's been months since I've written a blog. I've been so busy at work and on the weekends. I come home at night and don't even get on the computer as I'm so exhausted. I think it's been over a week since I was on my desktop computer emoticon Plus this week our lovely cable company completed taking away all our basic channels. Because of this, DH has been on the computer watching his shows.

Today I am off. I worked my normal Wednesday off and all I can say this morning is TGIF! My exercise and eating have not been the greatest. My goal for this 3 day weekend is to exercise at least 10 minutes on Sunday and hit the gym today and tomorrow. This morning I will take DD to summer camp-although I keep thinking today is Saturday emoticon Then I will go to my counseling appt later this morning.

I am proud to say that even though my exercise and eating haven't been great, I've been doing well in drinking my water-64 oz everyday! Work has been crazy as we are still down one person. We DID hire someone but she won't start til mid to late next month and she still has to be trained to use our scheduling and registration systems at the hospital. So I think I may be MIA for a bit longer. I'm working on putting myself first but I just don't have time to be on the computer at work like I used to. I got an iPad a few weeks ago and I use that a little in the evenings. I just think I have to step back for the next month with regard to my A&I BSG challenges emoticon I would love to stay on them but I just don't have the ability right now to participate in the challenges.

So to keep sane, I know I need to get exercise at some point each day. I just really feel like I have to stay at my desk to keep up with the faxes that come in to be scheduled. Sometimes it gets soooo crazy and I realize that several hours have passed and I haven't gotten up. My joints are talking to me once I get up-especially my hip. So my plan at the gym is to get to the pool and walk some laps. I have put it out there and plan to look at the pool schedule when I finish this blog. My problem is I always have great intentions but the follow through doesn't always occur. So here's to completing the task!

Ok, let me hear you say it with me....

    YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE!!! I too am stepping away from the BSG challenges for July at least. It's just too much for me right now and I need some time to do what I need / want to do. I'm so glad you blogged because I've been thinking about you and wondering how you were doing. Do what you can to put yourself first. You can always drop by any of our pages and leave a comment if you feel you need someone to talk to. Since DD will be at summer camp make yourself a priority! If you can while at work, set a timer for 25 minutes and when that time is up get up to walk around for 5 minutes. That will be a big help for you!! You can do it!! I believe in you!!!

    It was so AWESOME to see you here! I was beginning to worry about you! I am so sorry that you are so very busy right now. I really miss chatting with you. Do your very best to put you first and always remember YOU ARE NOT A QUITTER!!!!You can always drop by the A&I BSG challenge teams or just post a blog, but take care of yourself. Make time for you the next 3 days! Stretching is also good for your aches. My hubby and I are finding that out the hard way! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love the pic with quote! You are not a failure! Life can get crazy. Do the best that you can do during this time, for you. Drinking the water is a great step toward taking care of yourself. That alone makes your body run so much better. Enjoy your three day weekend!

    Glad to see you here! I understand being busy. I had to step back from the BLC challenge this time and I am glad I did. I am an honorary member this time, so I check in when I can but I don't have the pressure (self-imposed) of doing all the steps. After last week, I couldn't help but think about how guilty I would have been feeling if I was a full member this time around.

    I am going to use the next few weeks to get my exercise back on track and then step up for the next challenge. I hope you find you can do the same.
