Catching up, peddling and remember your clocks
Friday, November 01, 2013
Thanks for all the warm birthday wishes and encouraging comments. It was quiet, and that's all I'm really up for these days. Sorry to hear about those who don't enjoy them. I don't make a big fuss, but as is evidenced by the fact that I announced it here, I do make a fuss. Or, rather, like to have one made. Thanks for cooperating.
The new second job seems to be working out. I get to work with real customers next week. I'm still tweaking the sleep schedule and working out meals. On the bright side, the boss is shifting my start time by 15 minutes to give me a few more to get there on time. It was a very tight commute. Less stress is always a good thing.
On the Spark People side, I managed to drop a couple pounds I wasn't really expecting. I've been maintaining. I've learned that one of the keys to consistency is being mentally engaged. That's THINKING, for short. Coasting doesn't accomplish much, and I've been coasting a lot. Kind of like bike riding. You're only working if you're peddling. You may get some distance if you're coasting, but eventually you're going to stop. Got to engage.
I'm sure you'll get sick of hearing it, but a reminder to those affected, daylight savings time ends at 2AM on Sunday. Remember to turn those clocks back.
