Hey Heyyyyyy! Happy Monday!
Who stayed up late watching the Golden Globes? I did. Peeling myself out of bed this morning was n.o.t.g.o.o.d.
I hope ya had a good weekend. I worked all day Saturday and didn’t home until later in the evening. I grabbed a quick dinner and watched the Panthers vs. Seahawks playoff game.
I’m not a huge football fan but I will definitely follow my local team. Luke Kuechly is my favorite player on the Panthers because he did some work with the dairy association’s Fuel Up to Play 60 program. One of my school nutrition friends now works for the dairy association and her son was included in the promotional campaign. She said he was really nice
Sunday was pretty uneventful. I worked for a bit, got some more undershirts for work and got PF Chang’s for dinner (what’s up Christmas gift card).
So last week, instead of making a New Year’s Resolution, I decided to set 1 goal for myself each Sunday of something I would focus on for that week. My goal this past week was to drink more water, as this was something I had not been the best with around the holidays.
I’m happy to report that I drank lots and lots of h2o last week. I carried a water bottle with me to work every day (I try to do this anyway but sometimes forget) and made it a point to drink water with meals. The best part about this is that I definitely noticed a decrease in mindless snacking when I’m well-hydrated. I considered the week to be a success.
This week, my goal is to walk at least 10,000 steps each day. I got a Fitbit for my birthday but have not put much effort into increasing my steps since then. I was supposed to be taking it easy after my cortisone injection and I didn’t want to overdo it. But now that I know my cortisone injection didn’t work, I feel like it’s okay to get back into at least walking.
Does anyone else have a Fitbit? Feel free to join in on this if you’d like
Other bloggers: I have been working the past week or two to tweek a few things on my blog. I don’t really have anyone helping me with it so I’m navigating these WordPress/plug-in/widget waters alone. I’d really like to put my recent posts at the bottom of my page (like I see on most blogs) to free up space on my sidebar for other content, but I cannot figure out how to do this or which plug-in I should use. I have tried about 10. The one I’m using now only looks like it’s formatted correctly if it’s on the sidebar. If you have any advice, please send it my way!
Hope you have a fantastic week!!!
P.S. I am getting my hair cut on Saturday and I’m thinking about going short. I’m kind of getting tired of always styling my longer hair, and if it’s short then I won’t have to worry about putting it up when I visit patients. Here’s an old driver’s license picture from 2008 of me with short hair. What do you think? Short or long?
