On Target...no, wait...sort of on target...

Well, as for exercising and watching what I eat, I've been doing pretty well (with the exception of Friday through today when I've been sick, but I'm finally getting over that and getting my strength back). As for cutting my work hours...not so good. I'm having a lot of trouble focusing (and not being able to afford my Adderall really isn't helping my ADD, let me tell you!!!), so therefore my work is taking me twice as long as it should, and I'm not getting important things done. Yes, I know how to make a "to-do" list so that the important things don't get pushed off, but the problem is that the things I'm pushing off are things I HATE doing. But now they're all piling up and I'd better get to them.
Still, even though I've worked too many hours the past week and a half, I do have good news: I'm almost to my FEBRUARY goal! I'm sure getting back to walking and exercising with my daughter, which I hope to do later today, will also help speed things along. I am half tensed, waiting for the plateau to hit...this has been almost too easy so far! But having these little monthly mini-goals has really been helpful in pacing myself (which is something I'm generally not so good at doing!).
Anyway, the plan is to just keep trying. That's my whole goal for 2009: Don't Give Up, Don't Stop. Of course, I never give up anyway...I may give up for a day or two, but nothing ever keeps me down for long. I'm pretty stubborn that way...my Irish heritage shining through! I'm too tough to let a thing like my own mind or body defeat me, LOL.
