I survived my first two weeks of nursing school! I have my first test on Tuesday. I'm a little nervous because I have no idea what these tests are going to be like... well they told us what kind of questions are going to be on it and stuff like that but I don't know if I'm over studying or under studying. Guess I'll be finding out on Tuesday. lol.
I actually worked out on Wednesday! I went for a jog on the treadmill! On Saturday my daughter has a swimming lesson so I'm thinking I'm going to bring my swim suit along too and then afterwards well both swim together :] I need to start making workout appointments cause I really do have to not slack on my workouts since my fitness test for the Air Force is in April...itll be here before I know it. And I definitely don't want to fail it!
I'm going to be MIA on here for awhile. I really don't know how long awhile is going to be to be honest. I don't have as much free time anymore to log in here and track everything. I'll check up on yall as much as I can cause I definitely have met some great people on here. I want to thank every single one of you Spark friends on here that I have made (yall know who you are) for giving me the strength and encouragement to keep going with my weight loss. Yall are all so *AMAZING* and I wish you all the best of luck to get to your weight loss goals!
I am still going to try and watch what I eat and workout as much as I can. I don't want to throw everything that I've worked on so far out the window!
But I will definitely miss you all and get back on here as soon as I can!!!
Yesterday evening I found out that I start nursing school in 2 weeks!!! I AM SOOOO EXCITED!!!! and at first I couldn't believe it. But I was in the overflow bucket for Winter 2010 and I hadn't heard anything so I had given up all hope to start in Jan. 2010. But I was wrong! I start in two weeks and have so much I have to do. I don't even have my classes scheduled!!!
So this sudden news changes my plan a bit. Becuase I was all ready to go back to being gung ho about my fitness and figure out work out plans and everything to get this weight off and get toned up. So, now the plan is to just work out whenever I actually have time. I may just have to make check lists for everyday. Or in between study breaks I'll go for a quick run. I have to figure out something anyway because I have my fitness test for the military in April that I have to start geting ready for. So, I will be doing some fitness. The weight loss is just going to be taking a little longer now. My next two years are going to be crazy busy. I'm so ready for it though! I need to not procrastinate! lol... that is going to be my biggest challenge through all of this.
I decided to weigh myself today and I am at 156.4. I then realized that I have 1.4 more pounds to lose until I reach my 10 lb weight loss goal. I am super excited. I can't really notice the 10 lbs that are gone and when I told my mom that I'm almost up to losing 10 lbs she laughed at me and said, "Doesn't look like it to me." So, I'm so glad I have my best friend, Tasha and all my spark friends for the support. I also was not expecting any weight loss because I definitely have not been watching what to eat with all the holiday yummies and have not been working out besides walking around everywhere. lol. So, after the holidays I wanna kick things in gear and def get to my weight loss goals!
My baby girl is going to be 6 tomorrow!!!!!! I have no idea where the time went and how she grew up so fast on me. I have to go buy all the food today so I can prepare it all tomorrow. Then tomorrow she said she wanted to get her ears pierced so we'll see how that really goes when we actually get to the store. lol. Tomorrow is going to be a crazy busy day... but then again maybe not cause my wonderful boyfriend said he would come over and help :]
I am still not quite ready for Christmas. lol. see how much of a procrastinator I am? lol. I actually work Christmas day...which I am okay with. I have two Christmases I have to celebrate. One is on the 24th and the other is on the 26th. This is the first year Abbie is going to spend Christmas with her dad. I'm a little nervous about it :/ I know she'll have tons of fun with her siblings though. So, tonight I will be wrapping the rest of the Christmas presents up! I am actually so ready for Christmas to be over with. lol. I hope all my wonderful Spark friends have an amazing, merry Christmas!
I also just recently found out that I will be an aunt again! My sister is 6 weeks pregnant and due Aug. 10, 2010! I'm a little upset with her though cause by no means is she ready for another baby but ya know what I'm gonna support her and love that baby to death :]
I took my last test for the semester today!!!! woooohoooo! The plan now is no school until I get accepted into a nursing program. So this means I need to commit myself to this weight loss journey and focus on my goals. NO MORE EXCUSES. I'm so mad at myself that I pretty much gave up. I'm going to cut me some slack though till after Christmas cause I don't even have all my shopping done or stuff to prepare for my daughter's birthday party. When I restart this weight loss journey I want that to be the biggest thing I am focusing on.
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week :]
this picture was taken tonight and made me realize that I need to get back to work!!!
