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 dear .. yesterday literally almost had me in tears .... Linda did the password change for our emails .. every 6 months we have to change our passwords .. and she changed them, but somehow, our outgoing emails refused to work... Thanks to the help of our IP vendor, we got them up and running .. Linda was doing the change differently; and somewhere along the line, it didn't work .. and jammed everyone up .. our IP company really helped, and worked with keeping me calmed down...
I was honestly so frustrated I was almost in tears .. It's bad enough trying to fix something that "I" messed up .. but trying to figure out something that someone else mixed up ... is hard .. I don't know where to start .. but by 11:00 of 3 frustrating hours .. we got the emailing back .. You could GET emails, just couldn't send them out ..
I was so busy I didn't even know it was 11:00 .. I had put on almost 5000 steps just around the office in the morning .. :)
Thankfully the afternoon was slow .. I literally didn't do anything .. I was so frazzled from the morning, I couldn't focus in the afternoon .. sooo it was a worthless afternoon .. I decided to leave at 4 ..
I had a "munchie lunch" .. I had picked up a package of crackers, cheese, and ham and just had a plate of those .. along with 3 dark chocolate sea salted carmels ..for my touch of sweet .. I'm working on getting off of my food fest of the last few days ..
Hubby was off on a Dells coupon run last night, so wasn't home when I got home .. which was fine .. I got my pitcher of lemon water set up; and I went upstairs, got changed, and peddled for 34 minutes .. That felt good . but I still didn't peddle fast .. because my sciatica is still fussing ... Still not as bad as Sunday's .. but still there ..
I came downstairs and made myself some salsa dip .. (greek plain yogurt, and salsa), and had it with chips for dinner .. it was yummy and I'm starting to enjoy "munchie meals" ..
I went upstairs and played in my playroom .. unfortunately what I was doing .. wasn't working .. *sigh* ..
I was proud of myself .. The "old" Sally would have taken a day like yesterday and dove into a carton of ice cream, dove into a bag of potato chips, or found a package of cookies, or found a bag of candy (trust me .. with hubby -- there is no hard search for that stuff) .. I did exercise .. I WAS going to take a walk when I got home, but with the way the day left, I was laughing to myself ..There would probably be a spontaneous rain storm and I would be right under the cloud at the furthest spot away from home .. lol .. sooo I decided not to go for a walk .. but I peddled .. I did exercise to "fix" my bad day .. and felt so much better (even though my playtime in my playroom didn't work .. *sigh* .. lol)
The scale actually surprised me this morning .. Even though with the exercise during my food fest, my scale didn't really go up persay ..after a day of behaving myself, and exercising through my food fest .. my scale actually DROPPED ... Trust me .. I'm not keeping myself on the pedestal because of this drop ..but I think if I can hold true to everything .. it will hold .. I look at the scale as a tool .. there are so many things that can influence that number .. it's not the know all ..
Today is mom's birthday .. and her "birthday party" .. wish us luck that it works out as planned .. lol lol lol .. I'll be picking her up at 8:30ish .. and hubby is picking up big brother and sil at 10:30 .. I'm hoping upon hoping that she doesn't pull her "I need to go home" fit .. Everytime she sent me messages asking questions (her last one was "when will we be leaving the casino") ..
I always finished the answer with " just remember it's MOM's day ...it's all about MOM" .... keep your fingers crossed that she doesn't pull her normal .. "I want to go home" .. or I might have to pull her aside and explain the facts of life . *wink* so wish me luck !!! lol
Mom will be 91 years young today ... and all things considered .. I think she's going to be around for another 91 years .. lol lol .. and who's complaining !! :)
We're coming back (hopefully leaving around 1) to KFC lunch/dinner .. and my birthday present will be cleaning up after dinner ..
So -- need to run and see if I can't finish up my birthday card .. if not ..she'll get it on Sunday when I see her .. :)
I hope everyone has a great day !!! I'm hoping to !!! :)
