Hello from San Jose, California! 😀
I am feeling so caught up in Blogland! If you have visited my blog recently, I have now visited yours recently! I read 77 blogs last night and enjoyed every second of it while watching the Country Music Awards. Just wish I had more time to catch up on a more regular basis. I do the best I can and truly appreciate all the support you all give through your comments, emails, and everything in between!
Feeling low on “you” time? Who isn’t? Where is your time being spent?
Jennifer over at Fit At Heart had a fun exercise on her blog. It went like this:
1. Number of hours of sleep each night ____x 7=_____
2. Number of grooming hours per day ____ x 7=_____
3. Number of hours for meals/snacks per day-include preparation time.____x 7=_____
4. (a). Total travel time on weekdays ____x 5=______
4. (b). Total travel time on weekends _____
5. Number of hours per week for regularly scheduled functions(church, get-togethers, etc.) _____
6. Number of hours per day for household chores and errands ___x 7=____
7. Number of hours of work per week _____
8. Number of hours in class per week ____
9. Number of average hours per week of dates, socializing, exercise, etc. _____
Now add up the totals:____
Subtract the above number from 168.
Total hours leftover:_____???
Seriously. Take a moment and do this. It’s enlightening.
I had 20 hours unaccounted for. At first, this sounded like a lot, but it’s not. I don’t think, anyways. Things like over-time and the unexpected things in life are hard to account for. I know I spend a lot of time on meal prep and not enough time sleeping.
Question: How many of your hours in a week are unaccounted for?
In an effort to spend time on me, I ordered in room service and spent time doing what I wanted. Blogging!
I’m really excited for Day 1 of the diabetes conference at the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Institute. It is an all expenses paid conference for medical professionals working in diabetes including doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Certified Diabetes Educators, Registered Dietitians, pharmacists, etc. If you are a medical professional, look into attending!
On Tuesday evening I look froward to meeting up with Andrea of Andrea’s Wellness Notes! I’ve been reading Andrea’s blog since last summer and I can’t wait to meet another blogger in real life 😀
Does anyone have a good dog treat recipe? Lily’s birthday is next week and since she can’t go to doggie day camp due to her recent injury, I want to do something special for her. I’m a crazy dog mom, I know!
THANK YOU for all your sweet comments on whether or not I’m a runner. When I woke up without ANY stiffness or soreness I knew the Galloway training worked beautifully. Those walk breaks were worth it! I’m actually looking forward to my 9-miler this week! What a difference from last week, I can say that much!
And Leah at Why Deprive is having a CSN Giveaway! Check it out here!
Karla had a HILARIOUS post about Sunday and days of the week. I left her a comment about also hating Sundays. My mom always used to say, “Nicole, you can’t ‘hate’ Sunday…it’s the Lord’s day.”
Question: Do you like Sundays? What day of the week is your favorite and why?
Off to learn lots about diabetes!
