What a day. I started with an early meeting so I was up at 5:00 am. Hopped on the treadmill and walked for a little over a mile while I read blogs. Then off to work and that’s where it got interesting. It motivated me to get really productive – I got a lot of things done that have been on the back burner for a long time. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the really important thing done that must be done by tomorrow morning – my budget. I have to clean up a few things on it and get a final copy to my treasurer – I have a board meeting on Thursday morning so it can be approved. But, no. I was busy doing back burner things that needed to be done – but not necessarily today. My favorite question at work is “And what would you like me to quit doing so I can add (fill in the blank) to my workload?” I didn’t ask that question today, but I got mad and did the stuff that was necessary today.
But then I had a great meeting this afternoon followed by grocery shopping and grilling steaks for dinner.
I started Weight Watchers yesterday. The first week is the hardest I think because of getting used to portion control again. But with the treadmill and watching my food, I absolutely WILL get these extra pounds off. What was 30 pounds a year ago has now become 40 pounds. But I am determined and it will happen.
I guess what I’m most thankful for today is being able to grill outside again. The weather finally got up to 80 degrees. But I’m also thankful that I turned my frustration into productivity. Still have to finalize my budget though. I think I will lock myself in my office in the morning and concentrate on that.
The other thing I’m thankful for is I learned a new thing about WordPress. I really haven’t figured out a lot but one of the sites that I am going to start contributing poetry on is Poet’s Corner and I’ve learned some tricks to comply with their rules. One of these days I am going to spend some time trying to figure this all out. 😉
