Day 83 - I've got a theory.... it could be bunnies!

Buffy must have beaten back the evil of the Hellmouth for now.  I've had a decent day. Yay me!  Enough for me to do the Numfar Dance of Joy.   (Yes, the Dance of Joy entails patting yourself on the head.)

I had to stay up last night ... or rather stay up all night... to work on a proposal.  It's not fun.  But if I want to have a job next year, it must be done!  I sent it off to my boss this morning, bright and early. So automatically, I feel like I've gotten things accomplished today.  That's enough to make ya happy.

I took Izzy, my kitty, back to the vet, trying to recoup her numbers.  But she's acting a little pep-ier.  So I'm taking that as a relatively good sign.

And seeing as how I hadn't really slept... at all... I went home.  I really did intend to get some work done. .....
What are you laughing about?
But the pillow beside me.  Right there.  Tempting me.  Taunting me.  Begging me to lie my head down just for a second.  One little second.
Approximately 4 hours later....
I know.
So after a trip to Starbucks (sugar-free I might add), Target, and the vet's, I'm chilling out at home.

Remember the video I posted on my blog a few days ago from the Shaytards?  Well, I was watching his video today and he brought up a point that I think we should definitely think about.  Now, Shay had made a goal to do 100 miles on the treadmill before the end of the month.  But he fell behind because, well, life does get in the way.  Spending hours upon hours on exercise is hard on the lifestyle, family time, and well, just your mental attitude.  So he adapted his goal to doing 3.5 miles on the treadmill every day until the end of the month.

This is what I want to discuss.  So many times, we have a certain goal.  For some reason, be it loss of time for yourself, your family, your work, or just getting burnt out, we can't achieve our short term goals.  And I think that's okay! It's better to adapt your goals to something that you feel is more realistic than to get to the burned out stage and quit completely.

But we have this almost obsession with achieving goals, and when we don't, we want to just quit.  But it's important for us, and that includes me, to realize that we aren't Wonder Woman.  (Or Super Man for the guys.  Although, Wonder Woman could SO kick Super Man's butt. DON'T ARGUE WITH ME!  Plus she had those really cool bracelets.)  And we will have times that we will need to alter our plan to suit our goals and our lives.

I'm probably preaching to the choir, but I felt that I should remind myself of this fact too.

Hope everyone is having a great day!  Tomorrow: weigh in!

Wonder Woman was all about the accessories. Functional and beautiful! Plus, she was played by an actress who spells her name like I do. : )

I so wanted to be Lynda Carter when I was a kid. Well, Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman. And I have a name thing too. My middle name is Diane, and I was so excited that Wonder Woman's alter ego was Diana Prince. SO CLOSE! :)

Wonder Woman does kick butt.

To answer your question over on my blog, yeah I only did 1 session on the elliptical last week. The other 400 minutes were spent between walking, jogging, and P90 which is a video program alternating weight training days with cardio/yoga sessions. Cardio is nice but I gotta get my resistance on too or else I never see any progress. ;)

I'm glad Izzy is better. She's very pretty. That's what we call my pup, although her "real" name is Izzabella.
