New Moon

Sunday, December 09, 2007

I have been exceeding my calorie range this past week. It's the dark night of the soul, this time of year, and I have been eating a lot of sugar. Way too much sugar. I've also gone out for drinks a couple of times this week which blows my calories, too. On the bright side, I set a goal for 270 minutes of cardio per week and I got 408 minutes for the first week of December. So I'll get on the scale tomorrow and see what it says but I'll admit I'm a bit nervous about it. And I'll do better with the eating, too.

I've also neglected a full stretching routine and I'm paying for it this morning. I think I did the full hour of stretching twice this week and I certainly have added in stretches throughout each day but it's not enough. I am suffering from muscle tension and knotted muscles and muscle spasms all through my neck and shoulders and back, due to TMJ. I think if I take a walk then do my hour of stretching I'll feel a lot better. I went out dancing last night and had maybe too many drinks, too, so I earned this soreness, really. But it definitely reminds me that I need to take really good care of myself and my body. And I know exactly what to do in order to feel better so really everything is wonderful.

I am kind of annoyed because I'm not getting any emails from Spark. None of their emails and no thread updates. I checked all of my subscriptions and everything seems right there but I haven't gotten any Spark-generated emails since Friday morning. Weird.

    I see this complaint about the emails a lot. From what I've read, sometimes it corrects itself. But go to the community message board and post in the tech board.

    Well, you know what you have done and what you need to do. Now it's just a matter of 'stick-to-it-tive-ness'! LOL Yeah, I haven't been getting a notice in my email when I get a sparkmail, but I'm getting like the Daily Reflections and stuff. Weird! Is your email address correct in SP? Check for an extra space or dot - sometimes we miss that!
