Not the way to start a weekend...... :(

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Rough day @ the ol' salt mine yesterday (I'm *really* disheartened)...........need to step up my A-game ($#!# xomputer issues)......

emoticon

Did do a bit of dancing yesterday (solo, though - usual partner didn't bother).........I'm getting a bit annoyed about that, but I'm ALSO h**lbent on getting my money's worth - EVEN if I have to do this SOLO!!!!!

emoticon

Am indulging in a *small* piece of cake - there are no plans for any other less-than-ideal eating, so as long as I get the activity on I should survive........

Gotta run soon to start the day (we're commuting to this event to save hotel costs).........enjoy your Saturday, Sparkies!

    Great job doing the dancing solo. It's a bummer your partner didn't come, but woo hoo for doing it anyway!

Let's see how this goes!

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Taking part in a one-day work challenge, similar to the "Great American Smoke-Out" (only not with nicotine since I've never smoked - I'm avoiding junk food for the day).........stress has laid me low wrt eating habits, so this'll be good to get me refocused and hopefully back on track........

Have an active weekend planned - I'm not totally comfortable with this, though, due to logistical issues which could make for a less than physically comfortable time........time will tell as to how successful this'll be.........

That's it for now - enjoy your Thursday!

On gratitude.....

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

Those who have come to know me through my past blogs know that I am *NOT* a fan of holidays (and would just as soon not rehash my reasons now, since I don't want that to get in the way of my purpose for the day's blog)............this year I can acknowledge gratitude for certain things (small and medium-size in terms of significance).........this has been a *HUGE* struggle for me so this is a very, *very* "big deal* here.........

Bad patches in life often bring out the worst in folks - yours truly included, sad to say...........so at this point even small things are slowly but surely being acknowledged.........from the awesome sendoff from my former gig, to the small NSVs that have occurred recently (specifically, a nice-looking, "S"-sized pair of slacks FITTING, and the ability to climb *two* fights of stairs with relative ease)!

And, of course, the fact th at, while cold, I am not dealing with *4 feet of snow*! YIKES! (I hope everyone impacted by that event is taking care and staying safe!)

I'm not gonna lie to you and say that this season will be joyful - there are, indeed, still pressing concerns that will likely weigh me down a bit - but there *has been progress made*, and for that I am, indeed, truly thankful!

Enjoy your "hump day", Sparkies!

    You know, it's the little things that we forget to be thankful for, so maybe you should pat yourself on the back for acknowledging and being grateful! And as 1 who hasn't fit into S slacks in 25 years, I would count that as a great big huge thing!

    I'm glad you're able to be thankful for the little things. Sometimes those are the most important.

    At one time I kept a gratitude journal- I should go back to that! Right now I am covered in blessings, but there are times when I forget!

Certain people are just getting on my nerves today - and in some of the cases, these are *serious* matters that may potentially impact relationships..........bah humbug!

If only I could catch a break! No WONDER I'm not eating well.........

Didn't do well eating yesterday - can't figure out what's bringing this "semi-binge" on......all I DO know is that this MUST STOP! I've committed myself to a one-day challenge similar to the Great American Smoke-Out (only using "junk food" as the issue to quit)..........gotta DO THIS!
