Not very faithful to streaks and challenges

Friday, December 07, 2012

I sign on for different challenges at different teams' pages. I am plain ole not faithful to these challenges! I said I'd work out for 30 minutes every day. These days I do about 20 minutes not including sporadic NEAT moving that I am incorporating. I feel a lot better though and Wii Fit says I'm losing weight. Hope Wii Fit is right! My humble scales haven't moved in the right direction in sooooo long. I was up a few pounds there for a while and now I'm back at my ticker weight...according to the scales. Wii Fit says I am down, but it's hard to see the actual number there. I'm just going to keep watching my food, pushing my water, doing my Wii Fit stuff (which is pretty fun), doing my NEAT stuff, minimizing wheat and other carbs, and trying to do the right thing. Hopefully the pounds will start to come off at a regular rate--that would be very motivating!

Thanks for all the support about my recent job search crisis. I did eliminate the bad recommendation and had a long talk with a former assistant principal who said he'd be glad to give me a good recommendation. My husband is in his 29th year at his job and if he can hang on for one more year, he'll be able to draw his retirement immediately. He had thought he wouldn't be able to until age 60 but my old AP says that's not true. I hope we get work elsewhere but wouldn't mind seeing him retire either. It's a conundrum--we need all the money!

Anyway, I do feel low about lost opportunity from that one interview thanks to the recommendation, but I am not a person who wallows in sadness. I am still the same cheerful and positive person. I could still use everyone's good vibes and prayers though if you have any to spare.

    Keep going! You can do it! You can do anything you set your mind to do, and don't beat yourself up if you don't do a challenge. It sounds like you are doing other things that are good for you, and you should be very proud of that.

    Just keep pushing along, you will get there. Keep your positive attitude and you'll go far.

    Sending positive vibes your way. I'm still looking too, for over a year now I've been unemployed. Trying to stay positive myself since unemployment runs out the end of the year. I feel all I can do is just stay positive, do what I am doing, and know it's in Gods hands. :)

    Lots to spare for you! Glad to hear about your husband and the option to retire. Sometime I think just knowing one has the option can make all the difference in the world. You are very strong and positive and everything happens for a reason. Glad you are hanging in there. Just tiny changes are all that are needed. NEAT is awesome and I feel glad you are leading the way for us with this! I don't do the challenges because it's too much for me. Each person has to find their own way. I feel proud of you for blogging and getting it all out.

    Thinking of you!!!

    You got it!

    I got a Wii for myself at Walmart on Black hoping somehow the Wii Fit finds its way under my tree in a few weeks :)

    I recently acquired a Wii Fit from my mom and have yet to try it out. You make it sound fun and I think I need to bust it out this weekend!

    Good luck on the job search. The job that is a good fit for you will come along!
