Saturday plans.......

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Nothing, really - other than the usual routine, and some housework (since rain is being forecast, this would be a good day to focus on that).........

That crisis situation resolved itself, thankfully - if I didn't get satisfaction, there was going to be a very unpleasant call, for sure!

Sooooo - *now* I can enjoy that 1 lb. loss and take the momentum forward..........I'll continue on a casual approach to weighing-in since that did seem to have worked out this time ;) .......... have my eating pretty well mapped out today - the next order of business will be to plan eating for the upcoming weekend (did well last year with pre-planning, and that was before I resumed Sparkin', so I'd like to think a stronger approach will be even better!)........

Enjoy your Saturday, Sparkies!

AAGGHH!!!

You know, I'd be happy with the 1 pound loss (yeah, I decided to try the ol' scale - something told me I should - and YA-HOO!)...........however, imagine my shock to learn that I did NOT receive one of my direct deposits!

WHAT THE !!T#Q#?

emoticon

I HAVE B I L L S READY TO BE PAID already - THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!

Can we say "crisis", Sparkies?

emoticon

There is going to be one h***uva nasty phone call the minute that place opens (and yes, I am aware that my state has an agency that deals with matters such as this, so I *am* prepared to deal as needed - hopefully, of course, it won't come to that........)!

Leave it to corporate America to take the joy of this broken plateau away from me!

    Oh No! Our family lives paycheck to paycheck I understand how absolutely devastating something like a missed direct deposit can be. I hope that you get the matter corrected straight away!

  Congrats on the loss, and good luck with the financial obstacle! I'd be furious too!

Thursday update......

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Went to one event, but not the other........I'm OK with how that all went down, but now I am pretty much ready to start making some changes in my approach to social interactions.........I can't tell you that I'm all that pleased or thrilled to have to do so, but I have seen that others have done so, so it's not that I'm totally alone in doing so..........enough is enough in terms of how I'm leading my life at this point, and I'm sick and tired of being sick, tired and *miserable*!

emoticon

There will be some conversations coming up regarding this (and a few other issues as well), and I don't expect much in the way of pushback (in fact, in a certain aspect there may be some relief)..........but since this is pushing me out of my comfort zone in a *huge* way, this will be quite the challenge - so let's just hope I can do this!

Enjoy your Thursday, Sparkies!

    Be strong. It's what you want. Your doing this for you.

It may make you uncomfortable at first but the benefits you'll get from changing the things that make you sick , tired, and miserable far outweigh one days discomfort.

    ok, moving out of your comfort zone can sometimes be a good thing. I hope that it will be for you now.
I think that you can anything that you set your mind to do! emoticon

Ka-POW! Almost *golden* :)

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Did get the work out yesterday - there will need to be a temporary workaround until the original system is back in place, but that's fine by me! On top of that, while in the midst of wielding my way through the conference call preparation, I came upon some interesting emails - it seems that I have been recertified for another extension on this assignment - OK, I guess I can take that..........a good ending to a challenging situation!

Ka-POW! Yes!

emoticon

emoticon

Not sure I'll meet up for the usual mid-week meal - I'm a bit annoyed with a particular individual.........but I guess if worse comes to worse, I can possibly sit elsewhere - this meal is a good opportunity to get variety and good nutrition if I play my cards right and have good choices available.......one thing's for sure, though - I'll pass on mac and cheese if offered (this is what I'm "taste testing" right now)!

emoticon

Enjoy that ol' "hump day", Sparkies!

Kicked that Monday to the curb........

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Had an unanticipated (partially) conference call yesterday to address the latest extended tech glitch - hopefully there will be a resolution, since I did get some feedback and info via email during the call........will see what happens today. There is also a separate call scheduled today as a follow-up on another issue (revisions to another part of the current process - that's been working well so far)..........this was the most contact I've actually had with my direct manager (based in IL)..........hopefully I will have proved my mettle somewhat........

Yet another unusual social interaction took place yesterday afternoon - looks like I've been brought into another get-together next week..........I am now thinking "WTH"? This has been an unusually social month - what's up with all that, anyhow? Is this the apocalypse calling?

emoticon

Eating was much better, quality-wise........and despite the lengthened time at the AM gig, I was able to get home (decided not to avoid the place at the last minute) and do all I set out to do before leaving for the afternoon.........

I guess you can say it was pretty much "all good".......... whew!

emoticon

Enjoy your Tuesday, Sparkies!

    Glad your month is a little more social, it may make up for less than social times? Glad your eating is going well so far! Thank you for the support on my blog entries and offering good words of wisdom. I prefer books to movies as well, but once in a while I find good movies~
