Well, this is not exactly how I am feeling but let's go with it.
It is a good goal for the day.
It has been a week almost since I blogged. Life has been busy and just tiring in general. Not bad. It was actually a pretty good week. I just feel more tired in general at the end of the day and first thing in the morning. This is just not like me.
I am getting in my 8 hours or close to it for the most part. I know that is a lot more than many of you. Not sure why I am still tired. Anyway.
Ah, one thing is I think i am eating less, well, not sure. My weight is up & down but good ultimately. This is nice. I really like to stay at my goal weight.
It has been a bit challenging to get in my 10k steps daily but not too bad. I find that I can take a lap on my floor at work (go to the far rest room) and I get in 500 steps.
Drinking plenty of water... leads to rest room breaks :)
I am walking Sierra every morning and most evenings. She has boatloads of energy.
I am getting in very little treadmill time but when I do it is good.
I was very proud of myself yesterday. I had VERY limited time and thought, "oh just skip it you only have 5 minutes". Then I though nope, get in a half mile. It is better than nothing. I ended up jogging (after a minute walk) and getting in a quick half mile. Don't recall the time but I was pleased. I considered that success, getting something in versus skipping.
This week at work was significantly better. I am actually "doing" now versus preparing or whatever. It feels pretty good.
Additionally, I am feeling that I did make the right decision (taking the riskier route) going with this consulting group, Resource Global Professionals, RGP. I feel more challenged already than I have been in other positions. I am hopeful that this assignment will be extended. At this point, this assignment will go through the second week of June I think.
Yesterday, I finally scheduled myself to take the Project Management (PMP) exam again. Itis scheduled for the 10th at 8AM. I last took it almost a year ago. I have not had much time to study at all but feel I really need to take it before I forget all I learned in my 4 day course, which was April 14-17. I will do my best to study this week. The guy I report to is out Wednesday through Friday. I plan to take a day off and I would like to work remote the other 2 days.
The issue is I am finally to the point where I need to schedule meetings with people at work. I will try to schedule them this weekend and see what responses I get. I will try to pack them into 2 days. Hard to expect people to meet Monday though. That would be VERY little notice.
I was able to leave work at 4:00 yesterday. That was quite helpful. I got home and threw in some laundry and finally got my kitchen in order, emptying the dish washer and cleaning counters. I had been letting mail file up and such. It at always better to get things back in order.
Anyway, I have been good in general. I hear "My and Utah's song" multiple times a day and think of him often.
I don't really want to stop thinking about him. I do enjoy different memories coming back. Like the stent of time where it was a challenge to walk him because he would not stop eating worms. LOL. My crazy boy. The worms would was out on the street or sidewalk and he would insist on stopping.
I did however break down last night. I took a break and watched then end of Chicago fire and Greys Anatomy on HuLu and then just broke down. I do that I know when I am overly tired. I am not as strong and break. It is ok and likley good to get it out (when I don't even realize it may be building inside of me).
TODAY, we go to the acreage. I am not overly motivated but I consistently end out enjoying myself when I go. Nothing too exciting planned. I think we will be mowing and seeding. I have loads of pictures I should take the time to share this weekend.
Thanks for listening. I am trying to keep up with your blogs but don't always take the time to comment. I hope to catch up this weekend.
I will leave you with a picture of my boy.
Oh and Aspen's passing was May 10th. It will be 3 years. Crazy. Still loving her.
And a bonus... Sierra
