Day 17: Feeling Official

Friday, April 05, 2013

Coming to the realization that I will actually have two jobs starting on Monday. Since I decided to do consultations only on evenings and weekends, I actually booked three consultations for Saturday morning. People are finding me through my articles online. Yesterday I filed some motions in court. Whenever I do that, I feel all official and stuff. I don't get to court much, so when I do it's a little nerve-wracking.

Yesterday was a gorgeous day! I did a lot of walking yesterday. Walked to work, walked to the bank and the post office, took the stairs a lot. Made a trip to Trader Joe's and managed not to buy chocolate or junk food (other than a pack of gummy bears - I ate a few and gave the rest to Jon), which is absolutely amazing for me.

The FitBit has been very motivating to move around more. Even though I didn't officially "exercise" yesterday, I earned an extra 200 calories, which I didn't even use. So far, so good!

    I rarely share candy so that would be a major hurdle for me. :)

    You're so official all you need is a whistle! I love quoting a Lil' Wayne rap whenever I can. ;)

Way to go on the Trader Joes trip. That is always a MAJOR accomplishment to get out of there without decadence in my grocery bags.

Keep it rockin' on your weekend away!

    It won't take long and going to court will just be another part of the day. (I know this to be true!) emoticon

Enjoy the weekend!!

    Congrats and good luck! I've been working 6 jobs (seriously not joking) since January. I'm done 2 of them this weekend and couldn't be happier. But since you have a baby, that's like 10 jobs right there!

    not using the extra 200 calories is a good thing - that will lead to that deficit that makes for loss! and congrats on getting back into court.. seems to me that walking and stairs counts as exercise... congrats on the officialdom!

    I like your description of feeling all official -- made me smile. I am glad to hear you are enjoying your FitBit. I think I'm going to get one - I'll make it my Mother's Day gift to myself. :)

    I'm interested in hearing how you are enjoying the FitBit. My motivation has been deteriorating and I have been struggling to find some new way to keep focused. So, I am wondering if it would be another good motivational tool for me. I had a look at my SparkPage and there is a challenge photo from Spring 2011 with a weight of 152, 5 lbs less than what I am now. That was less motivating. I have made absolutely no progress in the last two years.

    Sounding very productive!

I'll have to google map the things I could walk to. Love to walk when it's nice outside.

Have a happy healthy weekend!
