82 touching base
Monday, July 01, 2013
Just realized I didn't blog yesterday! Sometimes I get so caught up in my daily stuff that I forget! Not that I am not focused on my goal, but I am one of those people that when I get on the computer and Spark - I am here for an hour or more!
Had a busy weekend. Saturday did some yardwork and brought some clothes back to the store that I had bought earlier in the year --- are you ready --- because they were too big!!! Yippee!!! Took the money I got from returning the clothes and got myself that Dyson vacuum I have been wanting. It was on sale and I had a 30% off coupon - so, the time was right. That was sort of my treat/reward for sticking to my plan!
Sunday, took my son to a pool party his basketball coach was throwing for the team. It was a taco bar, so had one taco and watched everyone playing in the pool. Left there to meet some friends to celebrate a 67th birthday. We ended up going to Logans. I did ok ordering a steak, veggie & baked potato --- but then there was that appetizer sampler that someone ordered sitting on the table with fried onion petals, fried mushrooms and potato skins. Split a potato skin with a friend --- but as we sat waiting for our dinners, found myself eating those onion petals and mushrooms. UGH! Over on my calories. Not to mention at the end of the day my fitbit hadn't even seen 5,000 steps let alone 10,000! So I guess it was one of THOSE days. Not much exercise, not much willpower, not much motivation.
TODAY is a new day. Walking for lunch, packed a healthy lunch to eat at my desk - softball tonight - and treadmill after that. BUT--- I forgot Mr Fitbit! I feel so lost without him! Went to check where I was with my steps and realized I left him sitting in the bathroom on the counter. I am going to continue with my plan. I think I will get 10,000 steps in if I follow my plan - but it won't show on my chart this month. I know this sounds crazy - but that REALLY bothers me! My chart will look like I had TWO days of slacking in a row! I know how it really is - but it still bothers me.
On a totally different note - thinking about getting a dog. I saw one on the computer at a neaby shelter. She just had 8 puppies and will be available for adoption in July. I work full time, and properly training a puppy and working 8 hours a day do not go hand in hand. However, momma is 4 years old - and she looks much like my last dog Maddie. She is an English Setter - black and white spotts. I would love to share her companionship walking those trails, etc. - but sometimes I worry that working full time and a dog don't go hand in hand.... When I lost my Maddie, I thought I wouldn't get another dog until I retired - but it has been about 7 years now - and I so miss having a dog! Am I being selfish - getting a dog and working full time? I still have time to think about this - and I have probably been overthinking it!!!
Anyhow, everyone - have a great day. Spark on!!!
