Hi, y’all!  I hope you had a great day.  It’s almost the weekend – I can definitely feel it!

My day was good.  I attended an HR training, so there was lots of learning and networking that took place.  I got to see some old coworkers, which was awesome, and I also got to put some faces to names (I love it when that happens).

After training, a few of us went to On the Border for dinner.  It’s times like these when I REALLY miss Tucson and it’s authentic Mexican food.  It was still a lot of fun though!

My beautiful coworkers!

They don’t lie when they say good things come in threes!  For proof, see the trio of dips I ordered…

HR Dev Day 002

That would be a spicy black bean dip, a ranch guacamole dip, and the famous OTB queso…YUM!  I enjoyed these with warm, soft flour tortillas!  It’s no Tucson, but it sure was good!  And not that I have to justify my dinner, but I ate so much during the day with lunch and snacks that I wasn’t hungry at all for a full meal…it happens!


A thought for today…
Something that was said at training really stuck with me.  Our VP made a statement about how most of us are more than capable of intellectually absorbing information, but not all of us are capable of processing that information and changing our behavior.

I have some thoughts about this statement but am having a hard time making sense of them right now – I’ve been up and at it since 5 am.  Sleepy smile

What are your thoughts?  Do you agree that sometimes the information we absorb in our daily lives doesn’t always translate over to our behaviors – how we interact with others, how we treat ourselves, etc.?

  1. Holy irony I’m going to OTB on Friday 😉 Hooray! 😀
    And YES I agree 1000000% on that statement.
    Ex: My friends are capable of understanding what healthy eating means and how important exercise is. Do they implement it? No. They are morbidly obese and this is after a lap band procedure. If people don’t process it mentally then it’s null and fail

  2. Parita,

    I’m so glad that you had a good time with training as I know how dry such sessions can sometimes be!

    Although it doesn’t seem likely at this point, I wish that we were moving to Texas so that we could eat tons of fabulous Tex-Mex food mmm mmm!

    I really like that statement and I definitely know that I am guilty of it. When I become anxious about something I can easily say to myself, there is truly nothing to be worried about, there is no risk in this situation! Sadly it doesn’t convince my body to calm down. I’m working on it!

    Hope you have a good nights sleep! 🙂

  3. Yum eats! I love that statement and totally agree with it! It’s easy to know what needs to be done, the challenge comes in actually doing it! It happens all of the time, and I think we are all guilty of it at some point. My current example: I know I should be working, I know what needs to be done but am I motivated to do it? Nope…procrastination at its finest!

  4. That statement is so so true and the best example healthy living, everyone knows the benefits but some people are just not ready to process and implement it.

  5. Hey, girl! Yes, I absolutely agree that sometimes information we absorb does not translate to our behaviors. I have read about and studied the effects of stress at length, yet I still cannot help but stress about things and become anxious. I keep telling myself “Colleen, this is so bad for you. Just stop it!” But then I just get more stressed – if that makes ANY sense haha 🙂 I hope you have a great day!!

  6. Good things do come in threes – those dips sound delish!

    I definitely agree that the information we absorb doesn’t always translate into our daily lives. It goes with the whole “easier said than done” thing. It’s much easier to absorb information and to even preach what others should do – but unfortunately when it comes to our own lives, it’s harder to implement!

  7. I totaly agree 100% with Stefanie’s statement “easier said than done”. For Ex: when you know that things you don’t have control over you can not stess about it right? and try to process that in your behaviour, it works for some days and other days your brain just does not understand and you have that why question…but as long as you just get back in to the process of understanding mode and put that in your behaviour it will create a win win situation…
    Oh and by the way those dips looks so yummmmy!
