Good morning. It is Saturday and I am way behind on blogs and the ones I have read I have been too lazy to comment. How bad is that?!? I made the time to enjoyed just a few yesterday and didn't even comment. Crazy. I should find a time in the day to just blog briefly.
I FAILED my PMP exam on Tuesday. Yes, it said FAILED on the results I received immediately after. How rude. I strongly prefer, did not pass. Anyway, I was not pleased of course but I am ok with it.
I was honest with the people at work and I think they were quite surprised I was not torn to pieces. I am proud of how I handled it. The biggest challenge was telling my husband. He does things right and does them once (most of the time). It's ok though. It is what it is and I have learned from it.
On a VERY positive note...
I am getting in more treadmill walking miles most mornings
Still walking the pups every morning & most nights even if I don't necessarily feel like it at night.
AND... I have been able to keep my weight it check for the most part.
I thought the stress of the certification exam might send me over the top. Nope.
Utah is good. Sierra is good. One of the first thing I thought of after not passing my exam was, I am healthy, my family is healthy and Utah has not had a seizure today. These are my priorities so I am ok. If one of these things was out I wack, I would come up with a plan and then act on the plan. This is just another one of those things that Aspen taught me.
I have missed her more this week of course. I have however not let myself think on it too much. I simply feel it and ignore it. I have to pick the time I will let it 'hit' if necessary.
Anyway, we will be working out at the acreage again this weekend. I will take pictures. It would be nice if I would post them sometime huh?!?
Oh and I am doing good on steps. Got in 20,000 again yesterday.
Oh and some kind of stupid stuff. I used a teeth whitener for 10 days and I feel it helped a lot. My teeth have been bothering me for quite some time and I have tanned a bit. I feel better about myself. It is funny how long it took me to do these little things for me.
I must say, I am pretty pleased with my abs. It is the one body part I work pretty hard consistently. I only work them for a short amount of time but I picked 2 exercises from Jackie Warner's eXtreme abs dvd and I am now doing these side crunch things with an 8lb weight between my knees.
Gotta run take the pups for a walk he just barked. He need to go for a walk, grasshoppers in his pants I say. Crazy kid.
