Win a Donkey!

There is no denying that I love strollers (and diaper bags)... This is the queen grand dame of strollers:

And Baby Gizmo is giving one away - there are only a couple more hours to go to Baby Gizmo and enter to win a Bugaboo Donkey! Do it now!!!


I need to put my resolutions down in print, since I have yet to really do anything about them when they're only in my head!

  1. Clean the freaking house - organization, decluttering, the works!
  2. Lose some blooming weight (at least 25 pounds) - running, elliptical, whatever it takes!
  3. Start training for/looking for a new job... I need a break from the ridiculousness that has become my boss' attitude (but I'll save that for another post)!

TANGIBLE GOAL - start training for a sprint tri (register for one by the end of summer/early fall)!

I need a change!

I'm not sure what is holding me back, but I need a change... change in body/health (working on that), change in money (not sure about that/see next needed change), change in career (stalling with that)... I am having trouble visualizing and getting the necessary momentum required to do things the right way.

When I am truly determined, I am a throw myself into things type gal. I don't mean the type of determination it takes to loosely follow a diet - I can do that all day with no results, because I'm not truly committed. When motivated, I have determination that gets it done. But I'm a perfectionist, and that leads to both procrastination and quitting in some cases. In other cases, that means all go and no quit... to a detriment. Two different examples: 1) I just started running again after doing 6 weeks of boot camps. I am in better shape, but by no means great shape. Being excited to try running again, I overdid it. Now I have to take a step back and slow down. Otherwise I'll get shin splints and make my plantar fasciitis worse! 2) Last night I decided to start cleaning off the elliptical machine. Instead of taking everything off and then cleaning, I have to micro-manage the entire thing and slowly clean bits and pieces. And I still didn't get it done! Oy vey!

I need a maid, chef and personal organizer. Alas, I will have to figure it out for myself, but how...?... :)

Blah :(

It is about to pour rain down on the earth and my work week has been pure yuck to say the least (I'd prefer to say something less than polite, but I won't)! What is it about "I'm busy" that people don't understand? Do I just need to say "Go bother someone else" next time?!? Unfortunately, I have the work blues and the weather is only making it worse :( I was hoping to actually get out and about and use our fairly new jogging stroller... Oh well!
