Good morning folks!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful week. Mine went by rather quickly. It was the end of the marking period last week AND the kids were only in school for three days. Friday was a teacher work day; we had a staff BBQ and played games. This post is going to be a quickie because I have tons of errands to do and then I'd like to finish my Bloggiesta goals!
I survived my first week and have to admit, outside of losing weight (down 2.5 pounds) I absolutely love getting to know my teammates better *and* my opponents. I've found drinking the water has been the easiest. Even on my day off, I end up drinking as much water as I should to earn the points. Not surprisingly, chowing down five times a day is the most difficult. I get the notion about having smaller meals so your body is constantly kept fueled rather than eating three large meals, but man, there are time when I just don't want to put another freakin' thing in my mouth. Also, I'm struggling with the good habit I created for myself. You see, I usually go to bed with the tele on and know that's not so good. Soooo, my "good" habit was to allow for fifteen minutes of quiet time (I didn't want to throw the word meditation out there). I've been doing this right before bed, thinking it will help me relax and it does the complete opposite! My body might relax but my mind goes wild. Changing the habit will cause me to lose 50 points, so I'm just gonna suck it up.
This weekend has also been the bi-annual bloggiesta marathon. You can see from my list that I've accomplished some of the things that I wanted, but I'm still slacking. It's really the writing posts that is hurting me. I'm just not in the writing mood and that effects what I produce heavily. Today (after grocery shopping and visiting my mom) I'll work on connecting all of my reviews to my Library Thing account. I do need to eventually come up with some posts for rainy days. I'm just procrastinating.
I'm still considering how to organize my RSS Feeds. Sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed with the amount of blogs in there (although from my understanding and in comparison with others, it's pretty on the average). I've contemplated going EXTREME and deleting all of my blogs and starting fresh. But that seems somewhat radical. I want to comment more and I can't do that if I'm primarily skimming. It's easy during the summer when I don't work, but during the school year it's pretty tough.
So, readers, how do you handle your RSS Feeds? Do you organize your feeds in folders? If so, what are your folders? Do you read certain blogs daily, weekly, monthly? Any ideas that you might have would be interesting.
