PiYo Week 2 Recap & CFD Clean-Up

Under normal circumstances, I really am a fairly healthy eater. Not super healthy all the time for sure, but not too bad. BUT, for some reason whenever I attempt to follow a food plan of any kind (for instance the PiYo food plan…) all of a sudden my brain says to me, “don’t you tell me what to eat… bring on the brownies for dinner!” :/ So we won’t get into how my food plan has been going. Tomorrow is always a new day :) Side note: you must try this recipe for White Chicken Chili… it’s amazing, and I’m pretty sure at least semi-healthy. I made it last week, not this week… again… not talking about what I ate this week. :/ Also missed two of my PiYo workouts this week… and didn’t run at all. :/ So maybe not the best week ever… but I did get my replacement disc so I was able to do the Upper Body workout. AND… I cleaned up the stands at Frontier Days three days this week. Sunday was …

I have the best coworkers… just sayin’

“These are for the Captain” was all I heard behind me. I turned around to see these being handed through the pharmacy window: My techs know that I’ve been worn down lately. After taking over as Flight Commander almost two months ago, it’s been one thing after another and I’ve been averaging 11-13 hour work days plus weekends. We’re getting everything together, and it shouldn’t stay like this forever, but for now it’s busy. Very busy. But this was such an unexpected surprise… I almost started crying right then and there. I’ve been truly blessed (can I say blessed if I’m not religious?) to be working with such a great group of people. We may have our ups and downs in the workplace, but at the end of the day everyone really cares about one another. And with that I really couldn’t ask for more! So I set the flowers by my checking station and got to smell them the rest of the day. Count a narc… smell the flowers… check a dose… smell the …

Zero Self Control

I already know this about myself, so I don’t know why I set myself up for failure… :/ SO I thought it would be a fun idea to have a candy dish of some kind in my office. You know, entice people to come talk to me (or at least have some chocolate available for them if ever I have to deliver bad or uncomfortable news) lol… so this morning I filled it up with Easter candy… set it there by my computer. By 2pm… it looked like this: Soooo…. not sure where the candy went… :P but I’m fairly certain no one actually came in my office today. Shhh… don’t look in my trash… Well, at least I didn’t finish off the whole container… but, seriously. I wasn’t even in my office very long today. Need. Self. Control.

Two Years

So apparently it’s been two years since I registered for WordPress. Happy Anniversary to my blog! In June it will be 10 years overall (including my time on Xanga). Crazy. Thanks to anyone who still checks in on me from time to time! Oh, and completely off-topic… today I signed up for our wing’s new program – the Mighty Ninety Safe Ride! In the past, they had a contract with one of the local cab companies that provided rides for people who maybe had a drink or so too many or maybe ended up in a bad situation; but with the unreliability of the cab company (and it was costing a lot for not getting much out of it), our new wing commander started this program. I’m interested to see how it turns out. Or how much people will use it. Hopefully they do. I started out signing up for a Saturday night and two weeknights in February as a driver… I’ll see how those go first and then sign up for more from there …
