Doing pretty well

Sunday, April 14, 2013

I still worked this weekend for work but not as much as usual. My boss is out until Wednesday so I feel the need to step up.

Anyway, my man did kidnap me yesterday. We left around 11:30 for lunch and took the Harley out. Yes, of course, I sit on back. It was chilly initially but warmed up nicely. We ended up at a VFW benefit. It was a super nice group and a great cause. We had a really good dinner there. I loved it. We got home a bit late but Utah still got his meds by 7 I think. I was impressed that I did not stress too much about it. I also missed a 4:00 work call. GOOD 4 ME!

I really did stop thinking for a while.

Then today... emoticon
I was all set to log in to do my PMP Certification practice test and I no longer had access.

I sent a message to my Career Coach person and to the Organization. My understanding is that I should have access through Wednesday. I hope they can extend it. It will be hard to get much accomplished on Monday or Tuesday though.

I tried not to get too stressed about it and told myself I simply need to come up with a new plan. So I actually founds some good deals on the web. I was able to get access to 600 questions (3 sample tests) on my ipad for $9.99. Not bad at all. Also, I can even work through these at lunch potentially or anytime. Handy.

emoticon I bought myself a birthday gift. I has been considering a scale that included body fat. I considered some other devices that would monitor calories burned. I decided that was too much and could make me crazy. I feel I am doing good now. I just want to focus a bit more on body fat versus muscle.

I ready something that really hit me about how muscle burns more calories than fat. I obviously have known this for a long, long time but for some reason a
emoticon went off and it made me think more that .... at my age.... I really need to maintain my weight and muscle as well.


So anyway, (gosh I went off on a tangent there) I bought a body fat monitor. It looks just like the one they used on me at work. Something like this.

It was quite reasonable. I got some other things last weekend from the Consignment shop. Jeans... you can never have enough jeans right? and 2 polo t-shirts. I was in a snobby/preppy mood and they were only $10 I think.

And I ate .... Oh my goodness, 3, YES THREE pieces of ....

carrot cake this week. Is that totally insane or what. I sure hope that is out of my system now. I am surprised I have stayed under my goal weight. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

AND I have saved the best for last....

Tuesday will be 4 weeks since Utah's last seizure. I am keeping my....

I know we would not be able to change his meds yet but if we get back on the monthly track maybe we would be able to lessen them just a bit. He is just a bit too tired for my liking. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE when he sleeps and is lazy. It makes my life easier but I want him ...

He is just a pup after all. He did get a walk yesterday and today. I feel good about him getting some fresh air and moving that 90lbs of his a bit.

    Sounds like your birthday was very nice! Awesome news about Utah. Keeping my fingers crossed on all your practice tests and getting that access back.

    I think you are very balanced right now and that is good!

    You must have needed the vitamin A in that carrot cake. ;) Glad Utah is well and you got to have some fun with your man. That sounds really frustrating about the PMP class, but good you found some of it you can buy on your i pad for a reasonable price. Happy Birthday! emoticon

    I'm glad you were able to get out on the Harley and have a nice dinner with your man. Yum on the carrot cake. You must have had my piece, LOL. Good new re: Utah. Bummer about getting locked out of the practice testing. Hope you can get access again.
