Stitchie Stuff - I did manage a half hour this morning before work and hope to get in more later tonight.
Health/Exercise - I wrote down every morsel I ate today. I am going back to the weight watchers credo. It is amazing how much food I put in my mouth when I am not even hungry. Even worse, I have noticed I eat ravenously and am often done before I know it. I think the maintenance of a food diary and slowing down will help the overall effort to loose weight. This week the efforts will concentrate on no soda and exercise more days than not. If I can make one small change each week I think I can be successful. There is some formula out there that says if you do something so many days in a row it becomes a habit and that is what I am striving for......new habits, good habits. That and the ringing in my ears that says......nothing tastes as good as thin feels.......hmmmm, I remember how good it felt when the waist band of the jeans was baggy! And I will be there again!
Happiness - What made me happy today? I have a major reprieve at work on the loan applications I am working on. Apparently because of snow days and flu days, the state's extending the filing deadline until the 8th! Of happy day, I wanted to do the happy dance but there were too many people nearby. I am 98% complete and all the exhibits are copied and bound......it is just those nagging few tidbits I need. I was so happy I didn't even open them to work on them today. Tomorrow I will tackle them and complete and have them delivered to the ODW early.
Giveaway - Check out Julie at I'll Cross That Leg and her give-a-way! And be sure to head over to see what Kristi at Calico Prairie is offering up on her site.
Other stuff/progress - I managed to sort my paperwork for my two meetings I have in the next 10 days. I reviewed my notes and the minutes for both will be easy and I plan to do them each this evening. I even brought home a binder from work to organize all my handouts from my EGA. I also managed to work on some of the updates for the website I manage. The Director of the Arts Board I sit on has a ton of forms she would like updated and linked. I crossed a few off the list.
So I am feeling good about myself and my progress. When the task is overwhelming, I remember the saying ........how do you eat an elephant, one bite at a time.....
