My goodness…I sure am crabby

HAPPY MONDAY!!!

I hope all of you are getting moving for a great week!

I got to go to yoga so my Monday is back on track!  I just love it.  I’m not that good yet but I’m already seeing improvements in my balance and my upper body strength.  I’ll take it!  I was hoping that it would help me get out of my head a bit, it only worked very temporarily, I’m still miserable.  I just can’t seem to shake this funk.  It’s been at least a week, possibly 2 that I’m very irritable.  I’m just an absolute witch in my head, but I keep it in there; you can’t just go around being mean to people.  When I’m sitting down “relaxing” I’m off in never never land, not paying a bit of attention.  This reminds me that I must call my Doc.  I hope it goes away soon…I hate when I’m like this!!! 😦

We had a great week of food!! Turkey tomatillo burgers, baked chicken with artichokes, roma tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, sushi…..yummmmm!!

We have been exercising a bit but we need to kick in high gear this week.  I WILL do 4 workouts this week!!  We leave for a week to Boston for my cousin’s wedding on October 1st. I’m hoping to stay on track while we’re there, although the week is already jam packed full of busyness!  This past week when I did workout it was just a half hour on the treadmill walking.  My Love is helping me to make sure I do SOMETHING, even if it’s not all out full throttle.  THANK YOU MY LOVE!

Just keep swimming right?  Swimming, walking…whatever 🙂  I keep struggling with the getting moving and keeping on track…but so does everyone else right? 🙂 I just hate not being me…but please believe that as cranky and miserable as I am I can still laugh and smile and carry on.  I’m just very sad inside.

I almost burst into tears last night out of frustration with Bailey, again! She sure is cute….and maddening!!!  She is getting better but with my massive cranky time I feel like I’m a bad pup Mom.  My Love says I’m WAY too hard on myself…but that is all part of my journey.  I need to get better but when I’m in my funk not too much will help me be better with myself.  When I’m good I’m great but I’m not right now so I’m unhappy and absent with a stupid headache.  I’ll be back soon…but for now: It’s almost time for Ellen…I need to get my laugh on!!! 🙂

What’s your go to happy place? What do you do to help you with your mood swings?

I can’t wait to go to Boston, I need the beach!

HAPPY MONDAY!!!
For most of my east coast friends and family it’ll be Tuesday morning by the time you get this…my mountain friends will get this on Monday long after responsibilites have been completed and the badness of Monday has passed. My day started off strangely and stayed there all day…I just had a fog that just wouldn’t quit.

I missed yoga this morning and I was actually bummed out about it. My Love was on a Skype call and our little fur monster wouldn’t stop barking so I had to come get her. She has been quite impatient and vocal and that needs to stop IMMEDIATELY!!! I’ll have to look it up. Too bad she won’t stop barking long enough for me to look it up 🙂 ha ha ha ha

We have been eating good and bad lately. We aren’t good planners and that’s bad!!! Although Friday we started to get a bit better and we’ve been eating well at least since then 🙂 Tonight for dinner we had grilled turkey burgers with tomatillos and onions and it was soooooo delicious! We had baked fries as a side and wheat buns. Last night we had the frozen salmon from Costco and they’re surprisingly good! The ground turkey tonight was Butterball but it was slimy and pureed…way nasty but it cooked well. I still won’t buy that brand again.

I had a conference call tonight that basically told me that I’m doing the right things to keep new people coming in my life to build relationships and grow my network. Networking groups and different social groups are the way. They keep you out there meeting new people. You don’t do it for sign ups though. I want to meet new people so I can connect them with their ideal people and they can see who would be good for me. It’s fun to have different things to do each day. I have my favorite groups of course. In fact I have 2 of that groups events this week. The people are awesome! That makes all the difference!

We took a great walk yesterday before dinner. The weather was perfect and we had a bit of a hustle going to wear out Miss Bailey. It almost worked 🙂

Here are a few pictures of the week…a bit of this and a bit of that…

I was TRYING to read my magazines...but Bailey wanted to eat my magazines...this was the only place she couldn't eat them.

I’m mustering up all the Rah Rah Rah I can right now

So it is Monday again, so it’s a new post day. We did just get finished with our workout which happened to be my first one in a week…yeah, go Me, right? That’s nonsense but I’ve been super blah all this past week. My case of the Mondays lasted pretty much all week. Today I made the effort to go to the fitness room to get that first one done…in hopes of walking away my funk. I was hoping to come back with some really optimistic, let’s kill this month, all sorts goals and plans…yeah that didn’t really happen so I’m going to make it happen on the fly and Win this Day!

Okay so I have giant goals that I want to accomplish this month. I DO have my heart set on a scale number for this month. I know that I shouldn’t but I am…I need to!! I’m of course not going to share that. It’s roughly 6 pounds for the month which I SHOULD be able to do. We have a wedding to go to and I want to feel good with my accomplishments in my jeans and on the scale.

I also want to make Director this month with my super awesome company! 🙂 It’s the start of great things! It’ll be another accomplishment for the month. If I do more that’s okay too 😉

So I chopped off all of my hair! There it is :)

So this happened last Friday 🙂 I now have a sassy, short cut 🙂 I only have a dorky pic that I took for my Mom, Sister and Bestie so you can’t see that.

We tried a sushi place in our city that a friend suggested...holy #yum

Finally we go to get some sushi at Okinawa Sushi in Littleton Colorado!! It always feels like forever in between sushi feasts…I just can’t get enough!!! It was absolutely delicious!!! Happy hour beers and no cocktail list kept our bill WAY down. Our favorite sushi place in downtown Denver has a very enticing cocktail list. So I’m in for a small bill and no paying for parking. We will be returning FOR SURE!!!
