Tuesday begins


Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Did well with the Monday... blood bank success and surprise! Saw a Spark friend there and learned she's taking another first timer out for the half marathon in May. I could only be more giddy if I were doing it myself. But in fact, I'm still anticipating trying for the full. We shall see how stretching the distance goes this weekend.

It shall, however, have to dance around the work priority - it's my turn to monitor an overnight run Friday night to Saturday morning. And with my laptop dead, I found myself this morning testing out the remote tools with my ancient desktop. They work... but so.... slow....

Today is Mardi Gras - fat Tuesday. Work folks are planning the traditional spread. I repeat, and keep repeating... the treats on that food table will not make the big project go away. Barb, you need focus... and for focus you need good, solid nutrition. That stuff you put in the bag for snacks and lunch. OK? OK!

Spark a great day, everyone!

    You are juggling this huge work demand AND healthy living really thoughtfully and well. Very good, Barb. Everything you say is right and significant, especially the part about the Mardi Gras spread not helping you get the work done, whereas the healthy food you've packed will help you function at your best. Good luck with the long run as you move toward that full marathon. How cool that you've got other SparkPeople doing the half. It is great for a first timer to have a buddy. I know. I had the best!! Thanks again, Barb!

    It is hard to walk away when things are enticing and tempting you to indulge. I often use the fact that OTHERS are looking at what I eat as an excuse to not take anything. I know it's wrong but it's a way to make my pride work FOR me instead of against me. Work people are all very used to me saying "No thanks!". I guess you could say I've gained a reputation! emoticon

    Good luck with making it through today! I am sure you will come through it with flying colors!! But what a pain, having an overnighter :((
Someday, I really want to be going to New Orleans when its Mardi Gras time. Everyone should get to see the spectacle at least once in their lifetime..
Hope things go smoothly for you at work..
