Weather is miserable in the UK at the moment - cold, grey, drizzle. Come on Spring, we need sunshine to cheer us up!!  :lol:

Motion seconded - springtime really needs to hurry up, I want to get some gardening done!

---

The interview went better than expected; I haven't heard back yet but it was only 2 days ago so I'm not getting narky about it just yet. I made a bit of a day it in Manchester as well, had a walk round the slightly quieter streets and listened to some music to relax.
Another employer contacted me after I'd applied with some additional questions about travelling to work and what-not, so hopefully I'll hear something from them as well.
Still having trouble sleeping but all I can really think to do about that is try to reduce stress more during the day; that's the only thing I can think of that could still be throwing a spanner in the works for me. :/
Gotten back on the horse with guitar and violin practice, making sure I learn important details rather than just diving in with songs all the time.
And I've been busily making more progress on my comic for a kind of easy confidence boost to motivate me with my other goals.

Good luck, Crowning Glory!

Safflower, thanks for mentioning the draw together! I read the prompt and I would like to join.

I've been falling behind my goals again  :redface: school work has been swamping my progress, but at least I've got it up to date (for now). The nail biting thing while being anxious hasn't changed  :cloud:

I would like to improve my speaking, because it embarrasses me. Unless I prepare it for a class subject or something like that, I tend to stammer, not come up with words or the end of a sentence, sometimes I don't say anything because I have nothing to say! I wish I could change the way I speak so I could give a better image of myself. This is my new resolution but I don't know how should I tackle it.

Have you considered an acting/theatre class?  I know that helped me.  I used to be so shy that I'd tell my teachers not to call on me in class--not because I didn't know the answer (I was a straight A student) but because it made me sick to my stomach to talk in front of people and my nervousness would make me stammer over my words, too.  I decided to take the theatre class my Junior year of high school because I wanted to change that and the public speaking class seemed too intimidating.  I ended up majoring in Theatre.  I know it doesn't seem like it would help you but theatre people have to study a lot of different subjects and the terminology used in plays (especially the classics and Shakespeare) tends to improve your vocabulary immensely.  Sometimes I use words that seem common to me (due to them showing up in the many plays I've read) and people I'm talking to have to look them up.   :blush:

You are never stuck in your goals in healthy pony. It's all about working out and fine tuning yourself. Make adjustments, changes, or new directions. Each tiny step helps. SDS WAS my first host in healthy pony. And it got me excited and I worked really hard. When she let me host, I was thrilled to share my love of this. I used to sneak food almost daily, now I hardly do...except really really bad days. So each movement even a fail is a step in the right direction.

Hubby has left for his trip...i just hope for the best..limbo is really hard to work with.

Well, I've had yet another job interview today, entirely out of the blue. I was out for a walk this morning, got a phone call and was asked to go in this afternoon. Not sure how it went but I gave it my best, especially considering the short notice. Fingers crossed (yet again!) I'm gonna take some time to relax tomorrow...

Let out some emotion and hoping for a productive week. I don't work as much so maybe I will have time to focus on me. I am challenging myself this week...going for 100 points...i know...i hardly make 14. Well this time certain things will be more points. Like knitting a pillow for a friend will have more than 1 point, but doing something like take my vitamins today will only be 1 point. Bigger wammy if I go get junk food. Yup for a week I have to be good. I get to buy a 35th anniversary pony if I get 100 points. I won't list them all but I will keep posti g my points:) get some chatter going:)

Well, I got a knock-back from one of the jobs I went for last week; it's pretty rare that employers ever take the time to get back to me, but I'm still a bit irritated about it. It's been a bit of a stressful weekend and that wasn't what I needed.
Went out for a walk this morning to try and clear my head a bit, put in some guitar and violin practice and after some more jobhunting, I'm going to focus on art for the rest of the day.
Hopefully the rest of this week will be better. :/

I'm back up to where I was at the beginning of December. All that weight loss progress, gone...

So I'm focusing on basics this week. 64 oz of water each day, at least 3 workouts (even if it's just 10 dumbbell squats and 10 dumbbell overhead presses), and reclaiming my living room.

In the living room area, I'm almost done putting away the playsets and I've uncovered some items I thought were already away. It's sort of a two step forward, one step back thing, but it is starting to look better.

Meal prep, I'm good until Weds night, at which point I'll need to go grocery shopping. Then I can batch cook on Thurs for the rest of the week. The Valentine's candy is on sale and I can see the Easter display going up, so I'll have to double down on my vigilance. I have a weakness for Cadbury Creme Eggs.
