Here are your points, Amy... :) LOL

Ok. The pressure is on. I must write a blog. I'm not really sure what to write about, so I've just started typing and we'll see what comes out. :)

I really hope everyone is doing well. I'm great! I've just been really busy at work, and tired when I get home. I'm hoping my co-worker, who had shoulder surgery, will be back tomorrow. He will have his right arm immobilized for 6 weeks, though! He's right-handed. He'll be at work, but he's not going to be a ton of help. He will have to try to write and type with his left hand, and he can't really lift anything. I'm not really sure what he's going to do, besides answer the phone. He's working Saturday, by himself, though, so I guess he'll just have to do the best he can.

Anyway, I'm sorry I haven't been around much. I'm just drowning in work, and so I feel totally exhausted by the time I get home. Today, I'm doing better. My manager was there, and he helped me a little. I'm also home alone, so that helps me have some time to wind down.

Well, I wrote all of that a few hours ago. I had to leave the computer for awhile. Now, I'm back, and I just did my cardio workout. I did 500 step-ups outside, in the heat. I wasn't feeling so well when I came back in, but I'm ok, now. I'm glad I did some cardio, because I've really been slacking on it. I have such a hard time motivating myself to workout, since it got so hot.

I had been doing really well with my eating, but my brother made homemade chocolate chip cookies, yesterday. I've had 5 of them, two yesterday, and 3 today!! :( I don't usually have such a hard time, but they were so good. I've also been drinking quite a bit of my mom's pink lemonade. It is so refreshing, when you come in from the heat. Other than those things, I'm eating pretty well. I've been getting my freggies, so that's good. I don't think I'll have too much of a problem, now. The cookies are gone, and I'm going to put some water in the refrigerator so I'll always have really cold water to drink. Those things will help. I'm not going to feel too bad, though. I could have done much worse.

Well, I hope everyone is doing well. I'm sorry for making you wonder about me. Like I said, I've been busy. I hate neglecting my sparkfriends, though. :( Next week should be better, and I think I'll be home quite a bit this weekend.

Have a great Thursday, everyone! :)

    I am actually glad that you've been busy! :) It beats being sucked into the computer and sitting on your (okay, my) butt all day! I'm glad that you are keeping your health on the forefront of your mind! :D Keep sparkin' along!!!!!!

    Thanks, everyone, for the support! I know we all have lives, but I also know how much the support of my sparkfriends helps me to succeed in this journey, and so I try to be here to provide support for everyone else, too.

    Amy, I did the step-ups at night, but it was still really hot, and the humidity is terrible here. I was literally soaked in sweat when I was done. I just had to rest for a bit, though. Then, I was okay. I am planning on buying a step, so I can do them inside, but for now, I have to go outside. I saw that you've been doing awesome with your steps! I can't imagine climbing those buildings that you are doing. Keep up the great work! :)

    I like how you start a blog and then wander off. I'm bad about that too. lol

    Great job on the step-ups! You may want to consider doing them at night before bed though. I don't want you passing out from heat exhaustion.

    Have a great day today! And thanks for the point. :P

    I ate three cookies the other day (my church makes the best cookies) and I totally went over my calories for the day. I made sure to do better the next day (I did) and get some cardio in. I'm glad that this is a lifestyle for us; in the past those cookies would have sent me down a long path of overeating and not exercising. And thanks for blogging. I miss my SP friends when they don't post blogs (although I am guilty of not posting very many).

    Spark is about learning to live life again... I think it's only natural to not spend a ton of time on Spark after you learn the basics. I'm only on when I'm at work generally (shhh... don't tell the boss).

    Don't apologize for not being around Spark. It's okay when life gets in the way sometimes and you can't get online! You are doing this for you and you only!! It's great that you are still on track even though you haven't been online lately! That really shows how much you've changed and how this time this will stick!!! You are doing amazing! Don't be sorry when you are too busy to get online. It happens to all of us!
