Last weekend ended poorly. This week was tough. I came home Friday and slept. Slept in on Saturday for the first time in who knows how long. And kind of took it easy on Sunday. However, the lessons, the misery, the depression are lingering. I learned a lesson last week. One that has been glaring … More Goals and Lessons Learned
It’s a rainy day here so I didn’t take a walk at lunch. The shorter lunch allowed me to take off from work a little early. I’ve got a couple of long days coming up…so I wanted to make sure I gave myself the time to workout today. So here is how the week looks … More I Owed Myself the Hour
That’s the road from my Sunday run. Rolling hills. The perfect image to signify the uphill battle I feel to maintain exercise. I managed to put 4 miles behind me on Sunday. Jog/Run/Shuffle/Walk…a mix. Honestly, depending on who you talk to it’s different. I’m not sure whether I should say jog or run so I’ll … More It’s an Uphill Battle Right Now
I didn’t meet my goals again. I’m feeling incredibly frustrated and disappointed. It was a tough week all around. Last few days I’ve been wicked tired. Yesterday and today – I’m frustrated to the point of anger and crying. Recently…I went to get an oil change at a big chain place…$55.00 and a list of … More Goals that Don’t Work or Just a Bad Week?
I wore a dress, it was windy, but I walked anyway. I had time to walk at lunch today. Knowing I needed to stop at the store after work, I had a pretty good feeling I’d miss the evening workout even though I intended to do something for 30 minutes.

I had a great day Friday…seems like maybe it’s a self fulfilling prophecy or maybe I’ve just been around long enough to know…for every great day…there will be a nosedive. I took the nosedive Sunday afternoon. I just don’t feel like typing out what the trigger was. There was a trigger, I took a nosedive, … More Crabby, Tired, Depressed. Spin it is.
So I failed pretty miserably maintaining my goals last week. No yoga. No strength training. Pretty annoying. But, I learned what doesn’t work for me at this time in my life and I tried too much too fast. Right now…committing to walking at lunch and yoga/meditation every night…isn’t something I’m ready for or something I … More Step Back to a Simple Goal This Week
It’s pretty early in the week to feel I failed. I didn’t even have the energy to take my own picture to post…I swiped this one off the internet. N didn’t sleep well last night….so the whole house was up – needless to say with the new job stress, energy levels are low and frustration … More Forgot, Fell Asleep, Frustrated
I try to keep these short because who has time – but this one is a little longer than usual. Last week I started a new job. I also learned my heat pump needs to be replaced or repaired – I’m deciding which route makes sense. So it could have been a pretty stressful week … More New Week, New Goals
Yesterday, when I rolled out of bed I realized I had slept on a toy car. There was also a rubber pig that shoots balls out of its snout, a couple of N’s blankets…and a big huge whale in my bed. At what point did my bed become a toy box? Is this a sign … More Trying to Maintain
