Finally a blog.

Friday, July 05, 2013

Not sure if this is true for everyone but it is true for me. I am not too busy. There is no reason NOT to get done what I should get done and NO reason NOT to do what I am supposed to do.

emoticon I do get a BIG thumbs up for consistently making my pups a priority.
emoticon I consistently walk them daily (very often 2 to 3 times a day) because I learned and have not forgotten that they are a priority. Aspen taught me that. I am grateful to have then in my life for as long as possible.

Side note here, I am eager to get Utah on his new food 100%. I have been giving him half and half for a while now, in effort to use up the old. I may just mix that in with Sierra's and be done with it. The sooner I make the switch 100% the sooner a month will go by and I can take him in again and get his liver enzyme levels checked to see if they have dropped at all with the new food.

I thought of this on my walk this morning. The only down side is that Sierra will get more protein in her diet. No huge deal there. I can even pick up a 40lb back and mix what I have into that. Then it wouldn't be too much.

I think I am getting too....


emoticon Thumbs up for emoticon getting on the treadmill daily. I only walk these days. That's ok I suppose just so I do it. I think I go into phases where I want to jog or run. At this moment I think walking is ok if I get in my steps. Not 100% sure about this. But I think so. I give myself a thumbs up for this. I am consistent.

However, i still have...

It has been months and I still have not completed my PMP exam application. I finally worked on it 2 weeks ago and then again yesterday. I have to get through this. It just hangs over my head.

I am hoping, NO planning to get this done by Monday. It will be such a relief. I feel like this is keeping me from moving forward in general.

I just read this and it is true. I need to do this NOW.

Ok the OTHER thing. I am NOT eating well.
Yesterday, while working on the stupid application I somehow, got in my stupid head that I could eat whatever for a day just as long as I was working on the application.

Gosh I irritate myself sometimes!

I am strong and I can do whatever I set my mind to do.
I am now setting my mind to ...

1 - Finish this stupid application to take the PMP exam
2 - Stopppppp eating non-stop
3 - STOPPPPP chewing gum non-stop
4 - Drink more water and
5 - JUST DO IT! and NOW!

I am not off my rocker, going crazy and pushing too much. I am good with balance, time for reading and watching some tv shows on netflicx and spending time with my pups.

BUT... I must get moving. This do not mean I can STOP.

ADDITION - Well, I am feeling a bit better. I got in a dog walk and 5 treadmill miles. I finally jogged again (for 3 of them). It felt good.

    It is so true about 'being busy'!

    I'm finally catching up on blogs. Can you donate the food that you don't want to be using to a rescue group? Or mixing it in with more food is a great idea too. I do that often when I have something given to me that I don't want to feed to our foster dogs without more healthy food with it.

    We all need days off from strict eating and exercise. Long as you are aware of this, give yourself a free day now and again. Balance is the key and you mentioned that.

    You are much more dedicated that about lazy. I am defining that word these days!

    Good to catch up with you.

    You know, it's okay to take a day off of your eating routine every once in a while. Don't be so hard on yourself about that. One day is not a game changer. It sounds like you are doing awesome with everything else- especially the exercise! Way to go!

    I believe that most people's days very. Also I think the weather plays a big part in how our day is going to be.

    "Just do it" as they say!

    Keep up the good work!

    Regarding the dog food - is there a pet supply store nearby that collects for rescue organizations? We have a local chain here that does exactly that and they are always happy to take extra or leftover (not expired) animal supplies.

    I think we go through cycles and some weeks we are very productive and ithers, not so much. Don't beat yourself up , just get moving! emoticon

    You're more dedicated than me. A positive attitude, which you have, will get you on the right track to succeed! Keep making those good choices and meeting priorities!

    emoticon Sometimes, when I am procrastinating about something, I think about all the energy I use avoiding the task. If I just got it over with, I could use that energy for something else. I hope you can get that application done. Just do it and move on. I bet the eating would improve if you did.

    Good for you for taking such good care of your dogs. I also like to spend time with my two and, while only one can walk right now, the highlight of my day is often their walks.

    Yes you can!!!! Your blog is so terrific! I find you to be such and inspiration. Thank you!

    Take that test. You have prepared...if you know that you are ready then you are ready. I am behind can do it!

    Great job with the pups! You are such a dedicated mom. Really...I need to give more energy to Sweetie...just your words show me that. Thank you.

    I think it is terrific how active you are, whether it is walking or getting on the tread mill. Give yourself a teeny break when it comes to overeating on one or two days...just take a deep breath and get back on track. No one is perfect and sometimes we just need to make it OK to do what we feel like. You are far to conscientious to let it become a bad habit. You are fine.

    I love love love your attitude!!!!
