Another Week Gone

I cannot believe another week has gone by! I haven't felt real well most of this week. Don't know if it had to do with the late night blood sugar crash on Monday or if I've had a touch of what Tom's had. Anyway, I did get up and exercise MTW which wasn't perfect, but more than I had been doing. Tom and I picked Monday evenings to listen to the Dave Ramsey CD's and work through the workbook. Oh! And Tom and I were able to get tickets to see Dave Ramsey on February 19th in OKC. A girl from church had bought them but couldn't go so she sold them to us. She got them when they first went on sale and were only $9 each (compared to $39 regularly).

My washer pipes and drain are frozen again. I sure hope that they thaw out before the next big freeze next week!

Snow Day!

Well, I got a snow day today. No kids and Tom got to come home at lunchtime. I was up at 11:30 with my blood sugar crashed (scary low) and so I am drained and tired today. Getting ready to take a little nap, I think. Hope everyone stays warm!

More on Changing my Attitude

Another thing I've been working on the past few weeks is not letting other people's moods affect my own. Just because my teenager is cranky, it doesn't mean I have to let it get to me. Just because a child in my care is cranky doesn't mean I have to let it get to me. Now obviously, this is easier said than done. A bad mood seems to rub off much easier than a good mood. Ever noticed that? So I've been working really hard at being conscious of it when it happens, taking a deep breath and redirecting my thoughts. Telling myself "I'm sorry they are having a bad day and I wish them well. But I am having a good day!".

This weekend, I told myself that I was going to get up and exercise Monday morning. If I only felt like doing it for 5 minutes, that's all I had to do, but I was going to do it. Since "trying" to do it wasn't working. LOL. So I got up this morning and did my Walk Away the Pounds workout. I did 1/2 mile, so go me! I'm going to do that workout MWF this week and the Yoga for the Rest of Us DVD on Tu/Th this week. I am only going to do 1/2 mile on the walking workout, but it's a start! I haven't exercised at all since my surgery or for several months before. So...GO ME!

In other news, I've continued working on the office and getting it de-cluttered and cleaned up. I also did a detailed vacuuming session yesterday (which was a workout in itself! Phew!).

Finally, my goals for this week:

1. Tom and I discussed listening to our Dave Ramsey CD's and going through the workbook again to "jump start" ourselves. I will talk to Tom and we will pick a day each week to do that.

2. Spend a few minutes each day continuing to work in the office.
