Another New Day....

...still in a holding pattern....wrt to the new job. No clue when I'll hear for sure, but certainly hoping it will be today so I can at least go home with a big smile on my face.

Big event is next Friday at work - it's my baby, and in some ways it will be my swan song if this job is a go.......

Syl - thanks for your post about wanting something badly enough......I responded to it........

......focus is what's important to me right now....focusing on small steps I can fit into my day to make me a stronger person. 4 days OP on WW, some planned APs (other than farm/gardening) and I'm already down almost 4 lbs! Amen.......I was really getting worried for a while there that the scale was going to keep creeping up! I've gone back to my mid-morning and mid-afternoon cup of tea and honestly, I'm doing so much better just because I take two minutes out of the day to make it and sit and enjoy it!

More on Monday.....unless I get some fabulous news in the interim!

Syl - here's to WIs for both you and I on Sunday - you in the 130s and me below 166......let's go!


  1. Thanks for your comment Laura. Somehow I don't find that I have alot of time. I do what I need to when juggling being home all day with the kids and finding time for myself that is why my workouts are in the evenings. I have two very busy boys and to me spending time with them during the day is important. I find that the excersice is my time for myself to do what I want to do that's why I tend to leave my kids out of it, it's like a well deserved break for me.
    I can see where you would think that the 3am workouts are ridiculous but it was just example. The point i am trying to get across is if you want it you have to fight for it, and I am willing to do anything to keep fighting and not go back to the person I once was.

  2. Gee, it's a good thing that I finally got around to catching up on your blog. Ok. It's true. Tiggie did TELL you to carve out time for yourself. It's nice to read that, even something as little as a couple of tea breaks during the day can help you achieve some sense of calm. You've handled a lot of stress over a considerable period of time and, this weekend, you finally recorded a nice, big loss. See, someone is watching over you! Me and Syl and a million of your closest friends :o). Hope you had a good weekend, although I'm sure the WI helped boost your mood on the WW front. You ARE doing, not just trying. Yoda would be thrilled. Keep on trucking.

  3. Ummmm. Who sets the time on these blogs? I posted at 11:46 pm, but the time of the comment shows 8:46 pm. Hmmmmm.
