Muddling through, plodding on and soldiering forth........

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Am doing much better this week with watching what I eat - let's hope this continues! Still have a few food-related challenges ahead, but so far, so good!

Nothing more to report here in Raspberryland - enjoy your Thursday, Sparkies!

Rough day, but.......

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

.......kept the eating fairly well on track (no junk or emotional eating - did make one choice that wasn't the best quality, nutrition-wise........I'll have to accept this when I take into account how rough the day was)!

The *real* kicker of the day was that, shortly after I finally arrived at my morning destination, I inadvertently witnessed someone else having, let's just say, a *far worse* morning than I had - talk about a heaping dose of humility for the ol' Raspberry!


That notwithstanding, I sure don't need a repeat of yesterday, for sure!

Here' s to a good "hump day", Sparkies!



So far, so good........

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Have already had good success with cutting out junk/poor-quality food yesterday - am trying to increase the water intake (am not sure just how much I'm getting in as I don't have or use any kind of official measuring devices during the day - I just drink small amounts from time to time when an opportunity avails itself).......

Slept pretty well (better than I have for a while) - I think the fact that I stayed up slightly later than normal and performed some activities that induced a mild fatigue may have helped........often I just turn in because "it seemed like the thing to do at the time", and perhaps that may not have been the best course of action to take........

Started logging in the details of my work challenge.........will have to look at my Spark data and see how I can incorporate this info as well - I'm thinking that perhaps with two "complimentary" methods I just *might* get a handle on my continuing lack of progress - time will tell!

(There should be a "crossed fingers" emoticon!)

Enjoy your Tuesday, Sparkies!

    Sounds like you have a plan in place for success. Take each day at a time and improve on the day before. If you slip, don't beat yourself up, just get back on track the next day!

And so it begins........

Monday, April 14, 2014

The workplace challenge officially begins today, so I weighed myself first thing upon getting up - I was about the same as the last time I weighed in a few months ago, so I guess I didn't fare all that badly .... hopefully I can take this as a good starting point for getting good momentum going!

I'm still a bit stunned as to how nicely the weekend went overall - weather, activity, social interaction (this is HUGE for me since I'm a "recovering introvert"!) ......... I did pass on one activity since I did feel slightly light-headed (I swear my sinuses are going into overdrive, but in a more unusual way).....


1) Nice weekend (YA!)

2) Ate better overall (even passed up some awesome-looking desserts - YA!)

3) New season=of "Deadliest Catch" coming up - YEEHAW! (This is soooooo much cooler than any of those "Real Housewives" shows - the constant screaming, caterwalling and catty carrying-on give me headaches - which I do NOT need with allergy season ramping up!)

Here's to a great week - enjoy your Monday, Sparkies!

    I enjoy watching "The Deadliest Catch" too. Not to many people have heard of it.

New week = new challenges!

Sunday, April 13, 2014

The intensely busy weekend continues - full-on activity all day........just hope I can keep up enough energy to go through it all (there is a slight chance that I may drop the later day event, but will see how the rest of the day goes)..........

What a relief yesterday turned out to provide - I was *really* anxious about the outcome, and it turned out to be *awesome* (even though it was modest in scope - I'll certainly, gratefully take it)! One good thing that came out of the activity is that certain "air-clearing" took place, and the beginnings of a plan have started to take shape - this is *definitely* a good thing!



Joined the Stress Buster Challenge (I don't go in much for challenges but there were a few that I did get in on that I figured would be good for me) - will see how this progresses..........and tomorrow I start on the work-related health challenge........I just hope I'm not "biting off more than I can chew" (literally *or* figuratively)!

Gotta head off now - need to rush and get as much done online before the full day begins - enjoy your Sunday, Sparkies!
