Saturday, Looking on the bright side

Just4Today, I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. AND I’ll walk at least 3 miles, take my fiber supplement & drink at least 2 liters of water.

I know this winter thing has got to be boring you but, it’s going to be over soon — There might be (there IS) snow on the ground but, daylight savings time starts in 2 weeks! Now I kind of hate daylight savings time (or actually all the time changing involved — I might not mind if we just stuck to DLS) but, even I can’t deny that if it’s daylight savings time, it’s spring.  And, I mean it.

We actually took a family walk – Mister, me and Tommy-the-dog yesterday — and we went the whole route. And I’m hoping we can do it again today.

What are you planning to do today?

Friday, Up and at ‘Em!

Just 4 Today, I’m NOT going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds.  I’ll walk at least 3 miles (at the Ghost Mall,) drink my fiber supplement & drink 2 liters of water.

I don’t know if people around here are getting what they call “cabin fever” from this extended spell of freezing temperatures & snow (we’re having the worst winter since 1962) but, (please forgive the medical jargon) yesterday the nuttiness was extreme.  Luckily it only affected Mister & me indirectly — so today I’m hoping that there won’t be a spill-over onto us.

I’m at least 3 posts behind here — there’s a small pile of notes stacked up and all the nuttiness aside, I’m hoping to get that done today and tomorrow.

(crossing my fingers)

What are you plans for the day?

Thursday, losing a post sucks

I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. And I’ll….. Oh, nevermind!

Guys, I swear I wrote a post this morning — I don’t know what happened to the danged thing though.  I must have closed the browser without posting it?  I don’t know.  I guess I was more wrapped up in the Health Care Insurance Summit than I thought.

I guess that was a sign that this was going to be a goofy day.  Lots of weird stuff that I can’t control and lots of other stuff that I can.

Anyway, TOMORROW, I’ll check before I shut down any tabs or browsers. How about you?

Wednesday, rolling my eyes

I’m not going to eat between meals & I’m not going to take seconds. AND – I’ll walk at least 3 miles (I promise!) drink my fiber supplement & drink 2 liters of water.

My problem (if it IS a problem) is that once I woke up and started doing stuff — I started doing A LOT of stuff!  I’ve gathered all the info I need to do our taxes, helped Tommy (our dog) get healthy & legal, begun writing THIS blog & at The Confluence again, AND I’ve been working on websites. There’s more but, some of it’s embarrassing to admit….

Anyway, one lesson is that if I’m going to start the day with an affirmation and some positive thinking — I’d BETTER start the day with it.

Another lesson?  If all this came easy no one would be writing blogs about it.

What do you think?  Tell me about the ups and downs of your life.

Monday: Ice, Ice Baby

Just4Today, I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. AND I’ll walk at least 3 miles, drink my fiber supplement & drink 2 liters of water.

I woke up yesterday and opened the window here to write my morning post.  But, thought I’d try an idea “real quick” on my friend Nancy Pickard’s website (we’re working on a redesign.) — I don’t know if you’ve done computer programming but, it turns out coding HTML & CSS follows the same rule — “real quick” is a joke.

One “quick change” led to another and when I shut down the computer last night at midnight, my half-done/never finished post was wiped out.  I’m really sorry about that.

The good news is that I got a lot of stuff done on Nancy Pickard’s site — and even learned a new technique!

********

Looking forward, I am REALLY hoping to walk those 3 miles but, it all depends on how strong that sun is.  The trees and cars are covered in about 1/4 inch of ice.  I THINK the roads are OK — our neighbors have been driving around…. But, I’m a little nervous about the walk to my car.  And depressed about scrapping the windows.

I just realized that the weather has been so crappy that I haven’t left the house since Friday night!

Crap.  I’d better get going!
