Lazy Day

Today was a lazy day for me. I was so wiped out from the last few days at work. I worked a 14 hour day and then a 10 hour day. *whew* I slept on and off for most of the day. It was wonderful. I really needed the rest. I'm so glad I am on vacation this week. I had some serious frustrations at work and it will be nice to be away for awhile. I am going to get some major cleaning down around the house. This will be my official spring cleaning. I'm purging the house of things I don't need anymore. I am putting a few things up for sale on Craigslist. I hope I can sell some things. It would be great to make some extra money right now. Since my employer is doing what they can to make it impossible to make our quoted money on commissions, any extra is good.

I am pumped about starting with John tomorrow! I haven't felt this positive in awhile. I feel like I will be able to follow his program. I am committed to 100% compliance. He has tools in place to get me through struggles. I will call to be talked down if I need it, instead of calling for damage control. He hasn't said this, but I'm keeping this in my head- He's a skilled negotiator not a paramedic. :P I'm hoping I won't ever need to be talked down, but I'm realistic. I've struggled with food most of my life. If I hadn't, I wouldn't be where I am now. I'm counting on my commitment to my adherence goal. Of course I have the FABULOUS Co-divas/dudes and SuperStar Marissa, too. ;)

I'm so excited about this week. I can do what I want and need to do. Some cleaning, gardening & yard work, some photography, maybe a short camping trip. Dang! Sounds like I need to be retired. ;)

I have 25 weeks til my anniversary and Halloween. Its going to be an awesome day! I am hoping to make faster progress so I can do an earlier competition. We'll see how it goes, but I am giving this my all.
