Rest Day please

on January 11, 2013

Morning my friends!  I don’t know about you, but I am so excited that it’s Friday.  I mean really excited.  It’s been a long week and I feel pretty tired this morning.  I normally like to get up around 4:30, but this morning I actually slept until my alarm went off, which was set at 5:15.  Smile


31 Days of Gratitude:


We are ten days in this challenge and I can already see and feel a difference.  Every night I write down something that I am grateful for and put it in my Gratitude Jar and it feels really good to do this.  I know that I could think of things that I am grateful for, but there is just something about writing it down.  The theme of nearly every single item in my jar has boiled down to simplicity.  It really is the simple things that matter, because when it comes down to it the simple things have a huge impact on the major things. 


We also did the Mirror Exercise and this really did have an impact on me.  In a big way.  Take the eyes that you look at your loved ones with and try looking at yourself with those eyes.  This should be really easy because you love the people around you, but it was an emotional experience for me. 


We also had our first group meeting last night.   I love the fact that we can come back once a week and talk about what we are dealing with.  What we liked.  What we struggled with.  I am looking forward to the next exercise!







This meal=creature of habit.  I think I have had this meal for like two weeks straight for breakfast!





I ate breakfast at like 5:30 yesterday morning, so when I got to work I was pretty hungry again…  enter the banana. 






Hey Bianca!!  Peek a boo!   I actually tried something different for lunch yesterday!!  I took the butt of an English muffin, chicken breast and half a slice of cheddar cheese.  Coupled with half an apple…










This was so good! 






For any of you Netflix users and Internet Explorer 9, um….I need help.  I keep getting this error……..




Ok….I had a big explanation of this error and I’ll be danged if it didn’t just disappear!!   For the love of Pete!!   I need rest!!


The night before I started getting this error I had an update message come up.  I was in the middle of watching something so I postponed it for four hours.  When I got up yesterday, Netflix worked fine and I was able to watch something.  When I went to close the page, it got hung up and I ended up just turning my laptop off.  Now, I am getting the error message.   Help!!

I called Netflix last night (super nice by the way), but it’s going to be an issue with the software.  I am going to call Microsoft today, but if you have any advice…..please share!  Smile



As I said earlier, it’s been a super long week and I just feel tired this morning.  I covered for my boss yesterday and he told me that I could leave early today, so I am hoping that is still the plan.  Smile  Welp, scratch that….I just got a text saying that he is still sick.    I kind of feel like crying right now…. I feel very tired. 



On that note, have a great day my friends!!

  1. Happy Friday!!! I am also very glad that I survived to see this day. The week was so hectic and I am exhausted. I felt drugged when I woke up this morning!

  2. I ACTUALLY got myself out of bed at 4:45 to swim this morning! Whoa, I even impress myself… 😉

    I think that writing down everything that makes me grateful would make me a happier person overall. Maybe Travis and I should adopt something like this!

  3. haha love the treadmill pic! ♥ ..i can’t believe you get up at 4:30! there is no way i’d ever be able to do that! hat’s off to you 🙂

    I am so with you on the tired thing, love! Reset my alarm this morning for another hour, too, since I woke up feeling sick and knew my body needed rest! I hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂 You deserve it!!

  5. I hope you’ve got some rest Brandi :S That error looks super frustrating too, I’m sorry I don’t have any suggestions to fix it!
