Blogging Everyday?

Sometimes I feel bad for those who see my blog pop up on their reader every single day.  I mean...it's not like I have anything that interesting to say.  I think it's mostly because for the first hour I'm at work, there's very little to do until all my reports come in so it seems like the best way to kill time.  I also believe, without any doubt whatsoever, that blogging is what has helped me stay on track the most this last year.  Knowing that if I log on and say "I'm a loser" over and over and over again...would just be agony not only for me but for anyone actually reading, has kept me motivated.  So here we are...another day, another blog.

I would like you to take a look the right at my Primal Challenge Tracker calendar.  Do you see what I see?  That's right...a GREEN dot.  Yesterday was a 100% primal day.  Can you believe it?  I barely could.  I also can't believe that banana splits are on sale at Dairy Queen for just $2.49.  But I didn't have one.  That's mostly thanks to Hubby.  There is not a little blue diamond as we got a bit of rain last night so a run was not in the cards for me.  The high is only supposed to be 92 today though so a run is definitely on my agenda for tonight or maybe even this afternoon before I pick up the kiddos.

My dad is home from the hospital.  Still in a great deal of pain but I'm sure he's more comfortable at home.  All from a stupid cup of coffee.  I keep trying to come up with a cooler story for how he burnt his foot...like someone emptied hot coals from a grill and he didn't realize it and accidentally walked across burning coals!  But I always come back to the same problem...explaining how he only burned ONE foot and not the other.  *sigh*  I guess we'll just have to stick with the truth.

No word on any new jobs yet but I've got my references lined up so I'll be ready if when I get a call.  Definitely ready for a change but not going to rush into anything.  I want to make sure that my next move will be a good fit for me.  Hubby is starting to get his stuff together to go out on his own.  We're hoping we'll be all set by the end of the year.  We shall see.  We also learned that Hubby is a bandster who is SUPER tight in the morning.  I think he's a little sad about that as he loves breakfast food but I think he also finds it weird that just coffee with cream kind of makes him feel full.  He's prepared to make high protein smoothies if he's starving so I think he'll be alright.  I wish I were that tight in the morning.  I find primal breakfast when you don't eat at home is TOUGH.  Eggs don't really heat up well and since I have to be to work by 5:30 a.m., I don't give myself enough time to eat before I leave.  I usually don't eat until close to 7 which means I have to be able to microwave breakfast.  So far this week, I've settled for 3 pieces of cheese (I don't do the "no dairy" rule of primal.  I don't get enough calcium for a woman as it is) and it's tied me over until about 10:30 when I eat lunch.  I'm getting kind of sick of it though.

OK.  So that's about it.  Let's go with a Hump Day Happy Thought.

Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys.  If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it.  
~Fyodor Dostoevsky

I like that you post everyday. Plus you always have something to say.

Try turkey sausage or meatballs for breakfast. Jenny O's has a nice packet. 3 are a serving and they hold you.

CONGRATS on the green dot.

Congrats on the green dot.
When I broke my ankle(s) I was so tired of answering 'just walking' when peopel asked me what happened that I started to come up with far out stories (and a different story) for eveyone that asked.

I love reading your posts, MP! As a fellow daily blogger, I hear you, but I think not only do people enjoy it [and if they don't, they'll just skip it and you'll never know!], but it keeps a continuity flowing, which I like. I also started my blog for me, to purge thoughts, to talk myself through things, to journal, and a huge bonus for me, to get advice and commiserate with other bandsters. I hope you keep popping up in my reader every day! And I love your comments, too!! Have a great day...

I love seeing your blog everyday so don't stop! Also, I too am at work at 5am in the morning and it makes for crazy breakfasts which is why I opt for my protein shake. I then eat a snack of veggies or Okios around 9am and then I have lunch at noon. It works!!

Congrats on the Primal Green Dot!

Ditto! I eat breakfast at work everyday, although I'm not doing the primal thing, I do often bring eggs, I do a very soft boiled egg and when I get to work I slice it in half (otherwise it will explode!) and I heat if for like 30 seconds, add seasonig and it's just right. I also sometimes to egg salad or deviled eggs for breakfast. I love eggs, in case you didn't guess it.
