another quick Stress-Busting update (week 3)
Thursday, February 03, 2011      1 comments

Just wanted to report on yesterday's stress-inducing work day. I had to go downtown for a conference, out of my comfort zone, and away from my routine....so lots of potential for stress. I had mapped the route, figured out how long it sh... Read more
Quick Stress-Buster update for week 3
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      2 comments

So far this week is crazier than I recall thinking it was going to be...but that is the nature of the beast, I suppose, when you are a supervisor... I'm still tracking my daily activity and interruptions. Today was a bit easier, since 6 ho... Read more
Stress-Busting Challenge: week 3
Sunday, January 30, 2011      3 comments

So, to wrap up week 2 in a tidy little bow, I had a mixed week. The work week was fine, I kept my log of what I was doing moment by moment, and put a star next to interruptions, but I did not get around to reviewing my lists, and posting a plan... Read more

I decided to log my time at work this week, then take the weekend to analyze and see how I can schedule my days better (more efficiently, I suppose) I'm logging the time, what I'm doing and when I get interrupted, I'm adding a star next to the... Read more
Stress-busting: week 2 (deep breathing)
Sunday, January 23, 2011      3 comments

I've just reviewed week 2 of the challenge, it is about ways to lower stress. I already practice many, if not all of these, so I suppose for me it will be more a matter of using them when I'm in the middle of the stress, and not hours later! ... Read more
Stress-busting challenge update
Saturday, January 22, 2011      3 comments

Have been enjoying a really stress-free vacation! One would think that vacations are normally stress-free, but that has not always been the case for me. I put too many expectations on them, and that leads to vacation let down. This time, I re... Read more

After reviewing my first journal post, I've come up with 3 goals that should help me to manage my stressors at work. Goal number one: track and follow-up on assignments involving other departments. Escalate requests up the chain of command... Read more
First "stress-journal" post
Sunday, January 16, 2011      3 comments

I joined the Spark Challenge team that deals with stress, and the first challenge is to start a stress journal, so here I go! My main motivation for joining this challenge is the way I felt at work this past week, so I thought I would revie... Read more

And what to do? We planned on meeting friends to ski tomorrow, should be a nice social outing, as Larry calls it, so today is up for grabs. We may get out skiing today, just to get in a good workout. Whatever we do, I'm feeling good! I just ... Read more
Not so fast!
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      3 comments

Weight has been creeping up the past 2 days....so I guess I didn't quite get away with it, but I'm back home, and back to my tracking and routine, so I expect to settle back soon. Keeping up a positive attitude, and just watching, not stressing... Read more
Getting away with it....
Sunday, January 02, 2011      5 comments

I don't recommend this strategy to anyone, but it seems as though I got away with making poor choices in food this weekend....or so it would seem from my ticker this week. After a month of total nutrition tracking (November) I switched to track... Read more
New year, how 'bout a new goal?
Saturday, January 01, 2011      2 comments

Just for the heck of it... so new goal will be blogging, I'd like to post a regular blog. Daily? probably not, I think that may be too much pressure, and would take the joy out of it. So weekly? I could do that! With the caveat that if... Read more

My goal for November is to track my nutrition daily, at the end of which I will reward myself with a new pair of flannel pajamas...I know, these don't really "go", but I love the feel of flannel in the winter, and the flannel PJ's I have now nee... Read more
slacking off, and turning things around...
Sunday, October 03, 2010      5 comments

Guess I really slacked off on tracking my balance exercises...actually, to be honest, I slacked off on doing them too! Guess after the 45 seconds, I felt pretty good about the balance. And I'm doing yoga 4-5 times a week, which typically i... Read more
