Every Day is a Battle!

Saturday, July 25, 2015      5 comments

And I am going through one of those dry spells where it seems like I am losing more than I am winning. Heck, I can't even seem to spin any Spark points. So, I console myself with little victories: my bathroom is clean, my bed is made up, I feel ... Read more

This week I had so much on my plate that I decided not to track but to use the time for R & R so I would not be absolutely dead by the time my three-day weekend started. It worked and I actually have the energy to enjoy myself. It is really help... Read more

The Strategy Worked

Saturday, June 13, 2015      2 comments

Just getting a week's worth of clothes ready saved me enough time in the morning I could get an extra half hour's sleep. I also decided I would not get to work one minute before I actually needed to because first, it isn't appreciated anyway and... Read more

Much Better This Way!

Monday, June 08, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday, I laid out my work clothes for the entire week, grouping all the hangars together so I could grab the whole outfit with one trip to the closet. That bought me enough time I could do some biceps work with 2# weights. I have my lunch sa... Read more
