Day 43: Yeah, Sure, I Have a Healthy Relationship with Food...
Holy cow, I haven't blogged since Tues?! I'm just having a super busy week at work. I'm putting together a couple of oversight hearings and the background paper for one has been a bear - we're compiling a matrix of all the programs this one ag... Read more
Day 40: Making Time for Me
I was feeling stressed at work this morning and almost went down the road I usually go down - grabbing a sandwich and eating at my desk so I could keep on cranking. But then I said NO. I need to get out in this gorgeous weather (we're getting ... Read more
Day 39: Getting Back on Track
Lordy, I've been bad about blogging lately! I need to get back on track, on so many levels. My best friend was in town this weekend, which was great but I felt like all I did all weekend was eat....why does that happen when you have guests? :... Read more
Day 35: My Karate Kid
Well, Kate is now officially an Advanced Junior Black Belt! I still haven't figured everything out - one of the moms said when they're 13 they can go for Adult Black Belt, but I'm not sure if that means they can start Black Belt Prep when they ... Read more
Day 34: Movin' Right Along
Got some running in today - 17 minutes total (my usual 2-min increments), 2.9 miles.
Tonight, Kate promotes to ADVANCED Junior Black Belt! She's kind of in a holding pattern now - she can't start training for Adult Black Belt till she's ... Read more
Day 33: Chin Up!
Thanks all, for your comments on my blog yesterday about the Girl Scout mess. I'm still not too happy about it, but my co-leader and I sent out an email to the parents last night. We had to send a similar email last spring and they all respond... Read more
Day 32: Can I Get Off This Ride Now?
Ughhhhhh. I started off today feeling so good, and then it all went to hell.
First, I found out that a guy I used to work with, who is just a few years older than me (I'm 48), died last week of a heart attack!!! How is that even possible... Read more
Day 31: Sometimes You Just Need a Mental Slap Upside the Head
So, if you saw my whiny post yesterday, you know I didn't have the best week. But that's changed! Yesterday I took Kate to get her hair cut short - her request - it looks soooooo cute! Here it is:
Day 30: Keeping My Chin Up
It's been a rough week on some levels. I was up all night Sunday night with stomach cramps and stayed home Monday. I felt mostly back to normal on Tuesday but all week, it seems like I keep swinging between being starving, and my stomach hurti... Read more
Day 27: Keeping Up With Life
I was home sick on Monday, went back to work yesterday and holy cow, I think I slammed two days' worth of work into one! Crazy day. Which was good in a way - I still wasn't feeling 100% but I didn't have time to think about it. Back to normal... Read more
Day 25: Taking Care of Myself
I didn't have that busy a day yesterday, but I was just exhausted when I went to bed. I had some stomach issues when I first woke up, but then I took the dog for a walk and was basically fine. But I was kind of tired all day.
Anyhow, ende... Read more
Day 24: Too Much Balance? ;-)
So, I think I may be starting to go a little overboard on this whole make-time-for-me-and-downtime thing...after running errands like crazy for several hours yesterday, I crashed out on my bed with a book for two solid hours, then sat and watche... Read more
Day 23: Keeping It Positive
Here's the post I made on the "Love My Body Challenge" FB page today...we're supposed to be choosing something about ourselves to appreciate each day, plus today's exercise was to "flip" your negative thoughts to positive:
"Today I chose to... Read more
Day 22: Friday!
Yay, it's Friday, and it's already 2pm! I've been in meetings and briefings almost the entire day, so it has gone by quickly.
I was supposed to run today, but Bam-Bam was determined to go with even though I tried to explain to her that i... Read more
Day 21: Balance
This morning, I had planned to get out and run - haven't run yet this week! - but ended up staying in bed snuggling with Paul instead. I was starting to beat myself later, because it's not raining today and it's supposed to pour tomorrow mornin... Read more
