Have a good day today!

Thanks for the clarification on 'time running out'; I completely understand as i've had those anxious feelings myself from time to time ;)

One thing to remember is that by worrying and thinking about it so much, you might be setting yourself up to fail. Believing you may not reach your goal makes it seem more probable, don't you think? So try to change your thinking; you can do this, if you just take it one day at a time.

And breathe more. And deeply. You can do this!

grannyannie on 02/10/2013:
Good job on working out.

Many of those cereal bars aren't much better than candy bars. The ones I bought were the lesser of the bad ones. After a workout I find the best thing to eat is oatcakes with pb. Very satisfying.

hollybelle on 02/10/2013:
Hope you have dug out of the snow by now. Burrrrrr! We will all be glad when spring gets here. Very good news about your apartment in March! Regarding glasses - not the end of the world. Most of us need them sooner or later. What are the vision requirements for the NYPD? I think a lot of policemen wear glasses. Now the office induced symptoms I can really relate to. I suggest taking a mandatory 5-10 minutes every 2-3 hours standing up, stretching and doing some specific arm and hand exercise to prevent carpel tunnel syndrome. You can find these on line. I have worked in sales either in an office or in my car driving and driving and driving, etc. For about 40 years and it oes take a toll. Years ago,though no one ever thought about or much less talked about prevention of some of the side-effects of sitting, typing, etc. so you are ahead of the game and positioned with knowledge to counteract these side effects and stay healthier for life - without having to give up your livelihood! I know you don't particularly enjoy office work, though, so I hope you can get in the academy or find a more active job soon. My daughter is the same way - she couldn't stand the office environment, and you know what she does for a living.....fitness/dance insructor. Hang in there and counteract those side effects!

OhioRaven on 02/10/2013:
Ok, let's pickle something. Let's start with cucumbers. Are we talking refrigeration or water bath canning ?

supercheese on 02/10/2013:
ahaha my parents and sister all all snowed in and all they did was eat yesterday. I suggested they play twister to exercise lol. Glad the gym was open though!!

 7am breakfast: fiber one and almond milk; protein bar: 500

then i went back to sleep for an hour and a half! I promise to catch up on your diaries during our snowstorm :-) smiling about catching up on your diaries, not the snow! hehe

9:30am snack: 2% chobani pineapple greek yogurt with some chia seeds thrown in for fiber and a more filling feeling when you eat it :-) 200

may go back to sleep again...or exercise...

1pm big lunch: tuna 150, salad with olive oil 150, chips indulgence 350, pita 150, lots of sauteed greens 200: 1100, at least it's healthy.

SO GRATEFUL I TOOK THIS DAY OFF. not driving far in the snow was well worth having one of my 10 vacation days per year today.  i had no stress and nice relaxation and even a nice time doing weights and low key cardio (walking/bike...oh and some stairmaster!) at the gym. wonderful day.

2500 cal, good. healthy choices.

breakfast: big banana 140, protein bar 210, fiber one  with almond milk 280: 630

healthy, but a splurge after dinner on dried fruit/nuts/chocolate was worth it....i guess.

around 3000 cal today. big dinner & lunch.

3mi walk, bootcamp for an hour.

lots of errands & got some things done i needed to do.

so i figured out why my eye has been twitching for over a week, everyday, straight. i need glasses. i am very upset bc i know it's the computer and constant overuse of my eye muscles at work, all day, and overtime.

i am more upset bc i am praying this is the worst of it.  i could not bear to have carpul tunnel or anything musculature related also happen. some days my body just cannot sit any more...and my body aches at work sometimes for the constant sitting. i cannot get like this. i hope glasses will be the worst of it.  I want to be a cop....and now this office job is really beginning to take a toll. I cannot bear it.  I am so upset there are no words. My vision was close to perfect 2 years ago.  It is because of overuse, at the computer. and of course i go on the computer a little bit on home. g-d forgive me!

there are no words for how stressed and upset i am.

my bosses give me extra hours and work, since i am taking thurs/fri off. so today, i worked 8-6:30. that is a long time for a desk job, on a Monday, and after the superbowl even if i didn't watch the whole game.

g-d forgive me for the life I have led so far.  I will make myself better & stronger. I will become an NYPD officer if it's the last thing I do.  I want to prove the the WORLD and MYSELF that really, it is very possible, to do things and become someone you never thought you could be.  I need this so badly, so, so badly.  I am doing what it takes & trying hard. But now it's becoming a race against time & time is winning....I am trying so hard, but reality is that my job is interfering in all aspects of my life....friendship, family, health, exercise.  I don't exercise enough and it seems I can't even make up for it on weekends anymore. it's just not enough. tonight i slacked on cardio, bc i needed more to come home and relax before bed. i won't get enough sleep, since I have to be at work at 7am.

my whole life i've done things i hadn't wanted to....and i was pushed out of everything i started to do well.

other than feeling pissed off....but not utterly lost in life....i am freaking out right now.

bc i know that time is running out on me.

my leg/ankle is still hurting...i jogged for like 5 min at lunch, dumb idea. i will have to "nurse" it lol...yeah right, by only walking the next few days until i have off on Thursday/Fri and maybe try jogging then.

legcramps on 02/05/2013:
Don't freak out. Okay, maybe that's easier said than done. Freak out, then move on. There's nothing more you can do except what you're doing now. If you need to rest, then that is your priority right now, so don't worry so much about tomorrow - just think of what you need to do today, and then do it. And then move on.

Why do you feel like you're running out of time?

V on 02/05/2013:
<3 I am so hoping that you get out of that job soon :(
