Recycler CI 5:45pm EST

Hi Pro Buddies & Egg-Tossin' Beagles :)

This morning at the gym I did my full cardio, stretching, and ab exercises.

At work this morning, managed to be diligent on my project list. At lunchtime I ate food from home, then went into a quiet room for meditation and inspirational reading. After lunch, I stayed on track, completing data entry on upcoming events. After work, came home, fixed & ate dinner, and now I'm checking my websites.

Next: I have about 45 minutes before getting ready to go to my volunteer activity this evening. While I need to straighten up some things around here, returning emails is what I think I need to do next. Maybe if I type fast, I can do one or two teeny projects before heading out.

Have a great night, everyone! :)



Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

byGodsGrace todays CI

Rushing today, not best case scenario b/c i should have started sooner and not had to rush, but I am getting it done and posting to stay aware that it is God who arms my way with strength and makes my way perfect!

Happy tuesday everyone!

CL ci

talk about late ci! but i did have an appt this morn, so not all my fault.

1:20 quiet time
1:50 merge
2:20 ck lpr
call p.b
2:40 tmp
3:20 nw1,ni
3:30 -DD only

UPDATE 3:29: what happens to me is i get the urge to avoid, and before i know it i'm doing something else, and i get involved in that thing and sorta forget my MIT.

UPDATE 5:30pm: well, that was really hard, with lots of avoidance and escape and distraction. But i finally completed it, and feel closer to god, and there is simply nothing like that in all the world. It makes all my problems seem real, still, yes, but insignificant in comparison.

I can now use the, what 20 min i have left productively. And work tonight, and try again tomorrow.

UPDATE 5:45: there, i did it. now that my 'tude is right before god, it was easy. i have imputed strength.

OK first I need to stop worrying about the late check-in.  I often check in late and feel guilty b/c all the "success" mavens say the early bird gets the worm etc...fact is, I really don't want to eat worms today!  :-)  So...instead I will rejoice that my HP inspired me to enjoy a nice relaxed 11th Step time this morning in which I covered a lot of spiritual ground, appreciated that yesterday was squeaky-clean abstinence in my food recovery.  I have also written a plan for today's food with God's help, talked to two sponsees, swept kitchen and porch, did a load of wash, hand-vac'ed the baseboards, emptied the dishwasher and made two loaves of banana bread.

Can you tell how badly I DON'T want to do the major MIT that I am avoiding?

I actually made a beginning: the file is open. But I have a massage therapy appointment in 10 minutes. God please help me complete that spreadsheet when I return!  Clearly I am powerless to do this on my own.

2:45 folo: massage was great. But I've been back 30 minutes and all I've done is eat something not on my plan today, listen to the prez on tv, and respond to a few emails.  OK, I've put on some good music to block out J's tv sound. Going to get a cup of coffee, and then chat through the spreadsheet.

e ci tuesday

Hi Edge! Long, long time no see! I have been out for a couple of weeks, and it is great to come back to see you here.

Today I am feeling very tired, put upon and irritable: I have been up, getting things done, and whining about it! I took the dog for a walk, tripped and scuffed my toe while whining to my friend over the phone. I ticked off at my children for sleeping in and don't wanna. Which of course, is a direcgt measure of how much there is that could get done and how much better I would feel with it all done.

Today is a day for paying bills (ugh) and for facing fiscal realities. I also need to weed through the benefits package and choose some directions. The past few days have been a little productive, but interspersed with lots of World of Solitaire games. As the saying goes, I can resist everthing but temptation!

asking for help to do the next right thing

Heya e!

Right back atcha :D It's good to be back :)

Vic 7/28/09

Just have enough time to show up.

1. Did alot of sharing as loop coordinator, and program, co-sponsor. 2. Need to get out the door to go to 10am meeting and take in car for new brakes, pick up scripts, etc. am glued to the house, need to go. (Got to meeting, got scripts, 1 refill, new blender, cat litter on sale, went to gym and did my swim, took car over to get the brakes, etc., met husband and got ride home with him, for inspection,called plumber for our rental property, kids were good, made nice dinner)

Once I got out the door, everything worked out, but the anxiety before I got out the door was taking over. it is almost 6:30 I called friend to see  if she wanted to go to local meeting, so don't know if she will. I jsut want to do nothing, but 1. do a few things on line2. make bed with clean sheets and tidy up bedroom ck in later.

First gratitude, 1. for all the beautiful people in these programs 2. That my HP is restoring me to sanity, AND HE WANTS TO 3. That I have not shut down in depression, relapse, etc.(so close)4. That I have hope 5. That I have this place for love, support, and hope

Thanks you for letting me share, Vic

Journey 8:30 & update

Good morning!   working from home today . . . I've been to the gym and Wal-mart, now I need to make my todo list for the day . . . I really want to go back to bed! 


UPDATE 11 am I ALMOST forgot about monthly boss meeting.  My reminder popped up and I only had 15 minutes to get ready for it, but it went ok.  I was almost finished with my todo list for the day and of course it now has to be reworked with boss assignments lol but that's ok. 

I took a 30 min break after the boss meeting, then had quiet time.   I'm still in my gym clothes, going to change now and then redo my todo list for the rest of the day.

I also watered plants and put in a load of clothes . . .not really work related stuff! but it won't have to be done this evening, so I can work a bit later.   I'm more productive in the afternoon anyway.
