ok. thanks for the feedback. i truly appreciate it. the overriding concern here is sleep. trust me. i know. i'm the one living without it.
i worked 12 years in dayton oh as a bottled water delivery driver for culligan water (99-11). in june of 2011 i was downsized. only me. they kept on some guys that had been there a year or less. why. company was up for sale and i was making $5 an hour more than the others. $18 hour job gone. 3 weeks vacation gone. 2 weeks sick time gone. medical gone. the new economy. letting me go made the books look good. it happens. 9 months later, hundreds of applications, only 1 job interview. not good. dayton was and is a dying town after GM pulled out. So i took a job with a temp service to work at a Honda plant and hour and a half away. 3 hours round trip. left for work at noon, got home 4 in the morning. got my daughter off to school at 7:30 and crashed for 4 hours and did it all over again. that's life
i'm unskilled. jobs are damn hard to come by in this neck of the woods. Shelly, i'd love to switch shifts but i'm working with people who are full time associates and have been there 15 years and can't get on days. and most jobs around here pay less than $10. i'm making almost $17, though no real benefits. bills have to be paid. the grandparents only live 10 minutes away but they're talkers and it takes a half hour to get out of there.
now the other option i have where i can gain an hour of sleep is to leave sparkpeople. don't really want to do that. i've made some good friends here. and this is therapeutic to me in a way. so y'all are stuck with me for a while longer anyway
so, it is what it is. learn it, like it, live it, love it. that's what i tell my daughter anyway
big day tomorrow. time to hit the rum. yeabuddy

Thanks for all the feedback and support. Greatly appreciated. Reading it through I think a lot of good questions have been raised, so...
I do the weight watchers program. Been on it since 12/29/11. Started at 289 lbs. I'm currently sitting at 41 points a day with 49 extra to get thru the week. Eat lots of fruit and veggies, drink lots of water (worked at a bottled water company for 12 years-if anyone knows about drinking water it's me). I eat the same thing every day just about.
Breakfast-milk, blueberry Greek yogurt, Special K pastry, banana
Lunch-southwest style egg beaters, red peppers, onions, turkey sausage, melon mix, milk, frozen Greek yogurt
Dinner-salad, lettuce, onion, tomato, mushroom, red pepper, almonds (1 point), baby corn (1point), fat free Italian (0 points), Texas Pete hot sauce,
Sugar free jello (0 points) melon mix, red peppers
Snacks-pistachios, almonds, turkey slim Jim & weight watchers pepper jack string cheese, banana, grapes, chocolate milk
That's mon-fri (and sat if I have to work
Weekends are the downfall. You know how it goes. Breakfast is the only meal I can control.
Up by 6:45
8-9. Wife goes to work, bailey gets up, breakfast
9-11 bailey time
11-12:30 chore time/ computer time
12:30-1:30 lunch, get ready for work

Full day. Every day. Suggestions on where to it more sleep in
Let me know what y'all think

been a while. my muse has been quiet. and sorry to disappoint but this won't be one of my quirky funny blogs (still hate that name).
i'm stalled out here. i've been at or around 205 for a month. i just haven't felt it. been doing the wrong things. sleeping to little, not exactly eating to much, just the wrong things, not exercising (though i have started running lately). i'm spending too much time on other things and not enough on myself (but that's life)
so i got on pintrest the other day looking for motivational quotes. because if you follow me or are part of my family you know i'm big on quotes and encouragement. you gotta have someone in your corner urging you on. got to. can't do what you need to get done without a little push every now and then. so you know me. i encourage, i praise, i congratulate, i try to motivate. i do what i can when i can for whoever's willing to take it. i give it freely. but i don't for myself. i don't feel comfortable receiving any positive so i just turn it around and send it back (correct pampa, i think so)
so i'm here now to ask for a little bit of help from my friends. i'm gonna try something really stupid. like i said i was on pintrest and i found 2 30 day challenges. 1 for abs, 1 for arms. (i put them on my photo page) starting monday i'm gonna try and do them along with my run, family time, work, sp time, and lack of sleep. (probably gonna have to cut a half hour of sleep time to do this-hello 5 hour energy). my daughter is on board and is gonna be my counter. i'll post what i do everyday for accountability. if i don't i need someone to let me know about it. keep me honest. i'm about 20 lbs away and the ends in sight. i just gotta get there.
so, renee, pampa, shelly, joanne, katie, liz, judy, dave, melissa, paulette, ashely, you guys are my sp/fitbit people. you have double the chances of keeping me honest. i need the help.
gonna get looped later tonight. Maybe i'll post some stupidly funny stuff then
