fibit challenge updates, life stress, and filofaxes.

I feel like I haven’t posted in a very long time. It’s been quite a rough week. It started with getting my car finally fixed (thankfully not a terrible problem, and took no time to get it back) and between that, overtime and some personal issues I am quickly slipping. I’ve had some bad days in eating, and I really have been struggling to get out of that. I have been making better choices but still, eating a bag of chips is bad whether it’s regular Lays or Baked Kettle Chips. The calories may be considerably different, but it’s still not healthy. I see that slight hint at not going fully under very helpful that I am at least doing more than I would have in the past. This next week I’m going to be really working on it. I have to work a full day tomorrow, and then overtime the rest of the week so it’s going to be rough.

I have kept up with my self-imposed FitBit challenge. I only have missed one day, and that was because my ride came sooner than expected and I had to rush out the door. I had even remembered it and moved it to where I was dressing. Sadly it stayed behind and I realized a mile from my place. This is what the challenge is for though, to get into the habit of wearing it. I move more with it on, and I really like seeing the differences in days. I’m thinking of taking the challenge a step up, but I don’t know if I’m willing to do it. I’m thinking of doing a full week of the minimum 10,000 steps. I don’t know how doable this is because of working so much, but maybe? We’ll see

I was a little bad today and hit up Target/Michaels/Staples….

Filofax Haul

My Filofax is already looking more and more cute, and more and more useful. I’m still working out the kinks, and what works but it really has been coming along and I love it. I spent the day organizing it some more and I have been finding it relaxing, especially after the week I’ve had. I don’t know if I’ll be using those pieces of grey cardstock for anything yet or just keep it in my crafting stash but they were on clearance and I figured spending the whole dollar wasn’t terrible.

I still have a while to go, but I will show my organization on the blog. I thought about doing a video, but I have decided to only doing a video on my health/weightloss areas of the FiloFax. It just suits the vlog more. But here…here we can do whatever we want! So look out for that in the next couple of weeks.

Tomorrow is weigh-in. Eek!



It is absolutely gorgeous outside, the birds are singing and there is actually enough light out to enjoy my outside patio for a little bit. Today is the official start of Humana. Well, official in terms that we are finally on overtime schedules Great for paychecks, lousy for life not dead tired. Rehearsals have been going on for a week, but today is the first day of hectic.

My scale should be here tomorrow. Good old Amazon and the fact that I live 20 miles away from a plant means the quoted time of next Friday turned into shipped today, on my doorstep tomorrow. I might play around with it, but probably won’t do a true weigh-in until Sunday. Then, we can compare.

So, I did something I probably shouldn’t have a couple of weeks ago. Well, I shouldn’t have spent the money, but in terms of bettering things for myself, I’m sure it’ll be a wonderful tool.

I bought a Filofax.

I got sucked in. I was watching an old Organized Like Jen video on her Filofax and I got the urge to look. I had done this before, but everything is so expensive and there is hardly any non-leather choices. To be fair, Filofax has a search dedicated to non-leather, so that in of itself is great, but the choices were slim. I just don’t like the idea of killing a cow for an organizer, you know? Eating them seems a bit better than for something like that.

Well, this time there was a sale. A 60% off sale. And I found one planner that was not only non-leather, but also in the A5 size (I can’t deal with small planners, I have big handwriting and need the space), and $22. Who could pass that up? I swiftly purchased it and a Month-On-Two-Pages insert and waited till the inventory was done so that it could be sent.

It’s here, and its glorious.


See? I’ll show more pics when I actually organize it, and probably show how I use it. I have some really great weight/health related things I want to do with. I might even do a vlog on it, we’ll see. But for now I’m super excited and love the thing to death.
