As promised, the daily blog returns!

Friday, August 06, 2010      5 comments

In my last blog, I detailed out the reasons why daily blogging helped me make progress on my journey. Since the benefits are many, I decided to start again. Today was not a terribly exciting day. I'm still having trouble focusing at work, a... Read more

Time is getting away from me...

Wow, I really slipped on the daily blogging thing! I think it was really helping me. I noticed other things started to slip once I stopped sharing my day with everyone. So back to it! To start, here are some things that blogging helped me... Read more

Quick Check In

Thursday, July 29, 2010      5 comments

Hi all! The last few days have been rough. I have a major deadline at work, and I had to get in all of my physical therapy and all of my homework, plus study for a quiz in my stats class. That class is hard!!! And the first exam is next Tu... Read more

I Tried, But I Just Couldn't Do It

Friday, July 23, 2010      6 comments

The last few days, I've been dealing with extra stress at work, lack of personal time, and a little PMS to spice things up a bit. This is not a good combination. I always overeat in these situations. My go-to stress food is potato chips. My go-... Read more

Revisiting a Painful Memory (Literally!)

Thursday, July 22, 2010      1 comments

Today's plan was to go to work, then head over to physical therapy and try out this thing they call jogging. I haven't jogged since last September, when my hip gave out during a half-marathon and I ended up walking - scratch that - limping my wa... Read more

Lucky Day

Monday, July 19, 2010      4 comments

Today was a good day. I had an awesome breakfast, but ran late and forgot to grab my lunch. Uh oh! Usually a recipe for disaster, because my cafeteria serves really bad for you stuff. But they do have a salad bar, so that's always Plan B. (I... Read more

Weekend Report

Monday, July 19, 2010      4 comments

I had a nice, uneventful weekend. I'm a bit upset that I didn't get everything done that I wanted, but I get a bit upset about that every Sunday night, so I think it's more habit than anything else. Read more

Planning to Succeed

Saturday, July 17, 2010      2 comments

On Thursday night, I was freaking about venturing forth for Friday Fish Fry with my family. (Hey - onomatopoeia!! Yes, I'm a geek. And darn proud of it.) I got some great suggestions that helped reduce my anxiety levels, and ended up having my ... Read more

Planning to Fail?

Thursday, July 15, 2010      6 comments

So, the quote goes something like "failing to plan is like planning to fail" - but is planning to fail the same thing as failing to plan? I guess it depends on your definition of fail. I'm not taking a harsh view of the word - like in my stati... Read more

Wednesday, July 14, 2010      2 comments

Well, I didn't have time to post a blog yesterday, so I'll do a quick one this morning so I'm back on track. Yesterday was a tough day - full-time work followed by a 3.5-hour class. That leaves very little time to get anything done and st... Read more

Come On Let's Sweat!!

Monday, July 12, 2010      4 comments

Everybody over here, everybody over there - move, move! This song has been running through my head since today's session with the therapist. Funny how my therapy is now turning more into personal training sessions! My hip's fitness level is... Read more

Train Wreck

Monday, July 12, 2010      7 comments

Today could disappear and I'd be happy. My statistics class is kicking my butt, and I derailed today. Studying is going much worse than expected, which is affecting my sleep and my stress levels. I missed out on socializing last night due ... Read more

Oblivious

Saturday, July 10, 2010      3 comments

Today I woke up later than I'd hoped, and slugged around a bit until I realized I wasn't getting anything done. So I headed to the gym to get my daily rehab routine in. Cardio consisted of 15 minutes each on the elliptical and treadmill (3.2 mp... Read more

Friday Fun Day!

Friday, July 09, 2010      2 comments

Today my therapist kicked my butt. I started out with 15 minutes on the elliptical, then did 7 minutes on the treadmill, where he bumped my speed up to 3.2 mph. That's awesome!!! My goal for the next two weeks is to continue bumping my speed up... Read more
