Another Week Down!
Friday, November 15, 2013      2 comments

Another work week down, though it was only 4 days, it felt longer. Lately my work days seem to stretch on forever. I wish I could find a similar position closer to home, or to where my fiance and I want our home to be when we have a house of our... Read more

On Sunday I made a trip to the 'biggest general store in Maine' whose sign advertises "Cold beer, guns, and wedding dresses" It was definitely a fun experience! I had my mom, favorite cousin, (yes, I play favorites) stepdaughter, and granddaught... Read more

Well this day got off to an interesting start! I showed up at work (the insurance brokerage I work for is housed in an antique victorian house, one of the oldest in the city) to find that we had no power. While waiting for the electric company t... Read more
Getting a head start

I've always envied those people who get their Christmas shopping done super early and don't have to stress when things get hectic in December. This year I'm working on being one of those people! Since my fiance is deployed, I have to get his sho... Read more

Friday, November 01, 2013      2 comments

I put on a pair of tall boot socks to wear today that I haven't worn in awhile. I'm currently rubbing circulation back into my calves where the elastic band was because they're too tight now! Little reminders like that make me realize just how m... Read more

I usually leave for work with a full water bottle and then refill it from the water cooler throughout the day. The one goal I'm very consistent in keeping up with is my water intake (on weekdays at least), I usually go through 4-5 20 ounce bottl... Read more

Tonight I have a dinner to go to with the women from my office as a retirement celebration for our administrative assistant. Of course she picked a pizza place with lot's of horribly unhealthy but delicious menu options. Then tomorrow we're havi... Read more
Workplace Exercise
Friday, October 18, 2013      0 comments

I forgot my big water bottle today, so I'm using a 16 ounce bottle that I happened to have in my vehicle. That means extra exercise for me! The water cooler is on the first floor, the bathroom on the 2nd, and my office on the 3rd. I work in a bu... Read more

I can't seem to get out of my own way lately. I know I'm prone to depression, and my constant tiredness and lack of energy tell me that's what's going on. The best solution for that is the one I can't seem to force myself to use; exercise! All I... Read more
The toughest lift...
Friday, October 11, 2013      1 comments

I'm looking at an image on my desk top right now that says "The toughest lift of all, is your ass off the couch." That is proving to be so incredibly true for me! Once I get home and sit down for a few minutes (the first thing I do is check the ... Read more

It's been about 2 weeks since I've been keeping up on spark or focusing on my fitness goals. First I went to Mississippi to see my fiance before he shipped out for Afghanistan. The trip was amazing and I'm incredibly glad that I didn't let logic... Read more
Happy Tears
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      5 comments

For the last week my fiance has been asking every day if I've checked the mail, because there was supposedly something about his military health insurance coming that he needed. I thought it was suspicious, being as the military knows exactly wh... Read more
Almost time to fly away!
Tuesday, September 17, 2013      3 comments

Yay! In the wee hours of Thursday morning (for me anyway), I'll be heading to Mississippi to spend time with my fiance! We decided to splurge on the hotel a bit; an ocean view and a hottub in our room! :-) We made up for the extra expense on the... Read more
