Mon, 29 Aug 2016 04:45:21 EST Slight concern for the day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6225768 Yesterday's food event worked out - split the portion into two and I was good to go for the rest of the day! <BR> <BR> <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> Today - well, that's where the concern comes in........ <BR> <BR> This is part of a very significant local event, and this place pulls no punches when food is concerned.........sigh......... <BR> <BR> At least I rocked another extended workout and feel pretty good........ <BR> <BR> Enjoy your Sunday, Sparkies! <BR> <BR> <em>213</em> Sun, 28 Aug 2016 08:00:54 EST Saturday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6225207 Got up a bit later than usual, but that was actually OK (after some horrific sleep habits over the last few months, I have made the effort to change up some things, and am doing better now, overall).........I can still get things done - no worries! Time is *not* of the essence today (and that's one of the blessings of weekends, IMHO)! <BR> <BR> Have two food events this weekend that I need to deal with, though..........sigh........ <BR> <BR> Enjoy your Saturday, Sparkies! <em>213</em> Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:27:02 EST A bit better today...... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6224654 .......hit no "speed bumps" yesterday - ate well and responsibly, and didn't feel lousy at any point - however, I now have two weekend challenges ahead (yep - food-related!) ----- sigh.........guess I'll have to plan these out again........it's *always something* when you're on the road to re-Sparkin', I guess....... <BR> <BR> Enjoy your Friday!

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:05:38 EST Some slightly disheartening news....... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6223499 Certainly not a crisis, but the kind of info that will have me potentially scrambling with parts of my day in order to cope..........I'm actually relieved in a sense, since this activity has resulted in my "overindulging" - however, I will now have to rush around to deal with this effectively, and right now I'm not sure how best to approach this situation.........since I only deal with this on a monthly basis, I have some time to think about this, but still.........I'm trying to minimize the ...

When will I get this act together for GOOD? <BR> <BR> <em>39</em> <BR> <BR> Last evening's plans were surprisingly *unsatisfying* - and a nasty storm didn't help matters much......... <BR> <BR> Now I once again have to take time out to strengthen my resolve, process my poor mode and allow myself time to get my mind clear so I can move forward........seems I'm doing this more and more often, and not getting the results I want......WHY?

I usually do this after work, but the latter part of the week has early evening plans that are incompatible with the time I need to do that - and my dinners have been suffering (lunch, too - I may have to actually - sigh - *buy* a lunch tomorrow, which I generally avoid and *abhor*)........ <BR> <BR> Got up this evening a bit groggy after last night out - I just hope I can make it th... Thu, 11 Aug 2016 03:43:37 EST Done, done and *done*! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6215317 I knew the work was needed, but by the time I got my wheels back, there was no doubt how much it *was* needed........feels like a brand new set of wheels - worth every penny put down! I can live with the temporary debt for the greater good (and driving an alternate ride was challenging - one does acclimate to your own ride, and the alternate was old, much bigger than I'm used to, and rode stiffly)......... <BR> <BR> Now, onward with the day (and yet another attempt at improving the ol' diet...
