Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Oh my goodness ..
Yesterday morning I walked into what speedily became a MAJOR CHAOS .. by the time Linda and I were done, the ENTIRE company was involved in trying to figure out where some paperwork was for a customer .. and it just escalated from there .. to the point of finally finding the paperwork, and the vendor calling us and telling us that the part wasn't available, but was supposed to go out via Next day air on Wednesday, and then contacting the customer to find out more information on the part, and the customer telling us that his American express card was compromised, and shut down .. so he will be without one for a couple weeks .. All this started because JL didn't put the cash sale into the basket but gave it to Jimmy .. who didn't know that Linda and I were looking for it, and then and then and then and then .....
I stepped out when they found the paperwork .. I didn't see that the original credit card reciept was credited, and we couldn't find the paperwork .. and well -- THAT is what I was concerned about .. and this is only the FIRST day of JL's 15 day vacation .. lol ..
I had over 3000 steps just working to find the paperwork yesterday morning .. lol
Things started to calm down after the chaos .. lol .. probably around 10ish .. I was proud of Linda, because Jimmy tried to pass the buck and have Linda do the order that was messed up, and Linda explained to him flat .. "I am not in sales" .. Gooood Linda .. lol lol lol ..
I did get out during lunch to take a quick walk .. we were shorter staffed so I wanted to get it in, but I still did it .. They are going to be short staffed when I leave too .. lol ..
I booboo'd though .. I took a longer route, at this little park .. it's just a little neighborhood park, but if you walk the path, you can walk a bit through the neighborhood ... but I thought I would try it .. and I booboo'd .. I ended up with a 24 minute walk .. DOH !!! but I got it .. and felt good !!!
I figured I could add 9 minutes of exercise somewhere to make my 33 minute "average" .. I joined a challenge of 1000 minutes a month of exercise .. I calculated 12 x 1000 = 12000, 12000 / 365 ... equals 32.8767123288 minutes a day .. so if I can do 33 minutes a day that will "pad" my total, and I will be able to average out to succeed .. 33 minutes a day doesn't sound that intimidating .. The only challenge I will have is weekends .. I exercise, but don't time it .. I'll have to figure out how to do this .. Don't worry .. I'll figure it out .. :)
IF I don't physically time my weekends .. it would be calculated .. 356 days - 110 days (52 weeks x 2 days weekend) = 246 ... 12000 / 246 = 48.7804878049 (average 49 minutes Monday through Friday) .. so .. I think if I keep it between 33 and 49 minutes I should succeed .. lol lol lol
Okay -- what can I say .. I come from a job of numbers, and I'm looking for things to do during the day .. I have to keep my brain active .. :) lol lol lol
But I'll hold at the 33 minutes a day .. I know I'm getting out and that is what counts ... :)
I was proud of my end of day yesterday ..
As for my eating .. it was curbed wayyy back .. I have a habit of doing that when I have a bad eating day .. and I was doing some serious hungry .. I didn't have much at the office, I didn't have my breakfast burrito, because I wasn't hungry for breakfast .. I had a yogurt before going out for my walk .. and when I came back, I had my bag of grapes, and a strawberry lemonade.... and a few handfuls of goldfish crackers when I was getting some serious hungry ..
Hubby texted me about "how many sandwiches I want" .. and I replied with "ONE" .. I had ONE sandwich last night, with a handful of chips .. and then hubby bought a box of 4 cinnamon buns .. I had ONE for dessert .. and I was satisfied .. and left it at that .. Hubby jokingly asked if I wanted a second one as well .. and I declined .. lol lol .. He asked me this morning again, and I told him No thankyou .. :)
Today my eating will be back to normal .. How come is it that I cut way back for a day when I goof up like I did on Wednesday ??? I may never ever know .. but it just happens .. Thankfully my fear of food is just for the one day .. and then my sane mind comes back again ..
I got home yesterday before hubby got home .. and it was such a beautiful day, that I decided to take a walk through the back 40 .. just for some peace and quiet, and fresh air .. I was really proud of myself yesterday ...
Today the temperature is supposed to drop a bit ... Enough that walking outside is not going to be an option for me .... (until my blood adjusts .. lol) .. so I'm going to a mall during lunch .. it's the mall where my friend's hair dresser is .. so I can stop and make my appointment, ask questions, and find out how much it's going to cost to have my hair "degreyed" professionally .. I told hubby that I was going to do this .. because I want to be pampered for my party on June 2nd .. :) So I'll do a lap or two in the mall today .. :)
I "THINK" I found a dress I may wear (if I can find some shoes that don't make me look frumpy, and won't kill my feet for a week afterwards .. lol) but I "shopped in my closet" .. the closet I put clothes that are "out of season" or "just about ready for a fit" .. and I think I found a tshirt dress that I liked ..
It's been 2 weeks that I've been more serious about my exercise, and slowly I'm noticing a difference in my "pregnant belly" .. I'll try on clothes this weekend .. I'm excited about the party now .. and I always laughed when people would want to "shape up for a party" or "shape up for a vacation" .. or "shape up for a wedding" .. and I've found myself in the same situation ... I'm trying to "shape up for my party" .. lol lol .. However, I'm also working on .. by the time my party comes around .. the 21 days of habits formed .. will have come and gone .. My goal right now is after the party .. to keep going .. I'm not seeing a problem .. but will have to be diligent ... to not fall into "I can do it later" syndrome .. but fall into the "DO IT" syndrome !!! I'm working on getting my mind set to keep going after my party is over ..
I have my little trainer rooting me on all the way .. Hubby is getting better now that he's understanding what discipline it takes to keep UP with this goal of exercise, just by getting his steps in every day .. so is helping me along as well .. :)
Today will be a great day!!! and even though I won't be able to get outside to take my walk .. I'm planning on my 33 minutes in the mall .. :) Hope you have a productive day as well .. :)
