Not another meeting

Today I started my morning with an Eagle River Youth Coalition Board meeting. Followed by another two-hour meeting, and now in an hour I will be at another meeting. Whoever invented meetings should be tortured.

It's not that meetings can't be productive. Actually, the first one was great. It was a new concept for better involvement, and it went really well. If the day would have ended with one meeting, then I wouldn't be writing this blog.

After awhile it seems like your talking underwater, or you sound like the teacher from Charlie Brown. You're not sure if you are making sense, or not. The thing is I like the people I'm meeting with.

The key is not to schedule meetings on the same day. Poor planning someone told me. No way! I wasn't aware this was poor planning. Thanks for sharing!

There is an upside. Tomorrow I'm working from home and hibernating. So I will survive this day, and I'll be working in my pajamas tomorrow. So there!

Did I take care of myself today? Well, I did go to Bookworm and grab a Chai Latte. It helped. Talk to you tomorrow from the comforts of home.

New year, new you

Isn't this one easier said than done? I don't know about you, but I am doing my best to make some positive life changes.

Here's where I'm at so far on this journey in 2010. I am working to take care of myself.

Right now I'm exercising two to three times per week. I want to move that to four to five. I'm getting there, but I need to move from two to three, consistently before I move to four. Baby steps!

I have been keeping a close watch on my spending. So far I haven't used a credit card at all in January. This is a definite win. Also, I have realized where I could save money, where I waste money, and more. So progress is being made.

Finally, I have been writing in my journal, and now I'm getting back to writing on this blog. All of this is part of the process of giving myself some time back.

Now if only I can tackle the cleaning and organization that I need to do at home, then we'll be getting somewhere. Overall, I feel pretty good with room for improvement.
