(Over on Calories & Carbs… that kind of day)

I did a Lot of Strength Exercises today:
20 Dumbbell Side Bends; 10 Hip Flexor & Extension; 10 Dumbbell Squats; 20 Close-wall Pushups (This was hard, 13 is getting tough, 15 was pushing it and I wanted to see if I could push it to 20 & I DID!); 20 Alternating Dumbbell Bicep Curls; 5 Lying Single-Leg Raises; 10 Dumbbell Lateral Raises; 10 Lying Dumbbell Triceps Extensions.

Had a much better today, not as tired and dragging as I had been for a few days.

Had a Census crew meeting @ 9AM. Since I finished my book, I guess I’m done till I get more to do. It’s just not like it was 10 yrs ago, hey, what is? Tried for an office position but they only had 12 Midnight till 8:30 AM. There is NO WAY I can stay awake those hours and don’t want to set my body in a tizzy. I had wanted 3-11 (I could do that) but they were all filled. So for now, I’m still in the field. I would have to work 40 hours in the office, but I would make more than in the field, because we are guaranteed 40 hours. Now we are cut back to 20 hours a week, other teams working 40. Don’t get me started emoticon.
Also, if we finish our books, which I have we can’t have a 2nd one until everyone else finishes their books. Go Figure~!

I realized today that I have been making poor choices. I also realized that the control was MINE, ALL MINE~
I am really working on roping in my feelings, calories and excuses.

Stay sweet and keep SPARKING!, using the Nutrition tracker & Blogging~!

Have a great rest and see you all tomorrow. emoticon

    Seems like today is a good one for many of us to reflect on what we ARE doing and what we NEED to be doing. I really want to revamp my life and my program. Love ya, Dawn

    No, you wouldn't want to get me started either... :)

    Those wall push-ups are so much harder than you'd think. Surprised me. Love them though because I can do them anywhere. Great job!

    Choices, yes that's a tough one. Trying to convey this concept to my 16-yo son right now. You'd think by then they'd have learned. But the challenges continuously change so "choices" is a daily topic at our house currently.

    Keep on sparking.

    Your calories don't look too bad when compared to your fitness.

    Yes it is hard to believe sometimes that the choices are our own! I frequently forget that!!
