That is pretty much it too... another brick in the wall... another day in the books. Today is just like any other day.
I took 1/2 a day from work last night and got some much needed rest. I woke up, I cooked, ate breakfast, packed my lunch, got ready for work... did everything I always do with no variation from my normal routine.
I am ok with that. I am pretty much fine with the monotony of every day hum drum life. I don't have any complaints really.
I turned heads when I walked into work today and I am trying to figure out if it is because i looked hot or if I was carrying a cake pan full of chocolate goodness? I am guessing it had to do with the cake pan, but I could be mistaken. I will post a pic when I get home in the morning of the outfit I wore.
House construction is coming along quite well. I will also get some pics to post of that too.
Looking forward to 5:30 PC Fit... I need it!

"What tastes better? Those cookies you wanted for an hour, or the body you have wanted your entire life"?
I saw this on a picture on Pintrest, and it really hit home with me. In fact, it is really hitting home with me right now as there in an open package of double stuff fudge filled Oreos sitting right next to me.
So which is it? One would think that it would be an easy descision, but it isn't. I actually just went to the bathroom to look at myself. I know it sounds silly, but if I go look at myself, and see what I have accomplished, then those cookies don't seem like such a big deal
I guess I should have mentioned the reason there is an open package of oreos next to me is because I am at work, and my "desk buddy" left them out. (She works daylight shift, I work night shift and we share a station)
I put them in a baggie and stowed them in her drawer and sent her an email letting her know where they are at, but I know they are there. Also it is very common for her and I to help ourselves to one anothers snacks, pens, notebooks and so on. Not only are we "desk buddies" but we are also very close friends outside of the office.

Sometimes, to remind myself of something (not quite sure what) I visit the websites of various fast food places and plug in my old "go to" meals to see where I am at calorie wise...
2 double stack burgers @ 460 calories/each
Medium fry @ 410 calories
Medium Frosty @ 410 calories
Medium Coke @ 240 calories
Total calories = 1980
2 whopper Jrs @ 340 calories/each
Medium Onion Ring @ 410 calories
Hershey's Sundae Pie @ 310 calories
Large Sweet Tea @ 240 calories
Total Calories = 1640
2 McDoubles @ 390 calories/each
Medium Fry @ 380 calories
2 apple pies @ 250 calories/each
Iced Coffee @ 120 calories
Total Calories = 1780
1 footlong Steak and Cheese on White w/ lettuce, tomato, onion, and mayo
1 bag of chips @ 160 calories
3 cookies @ 200 calories/each
Coke @ 260 calories
Total Calories = 2020
I could go on and on with Taco Bell, KFC, Arby's, and so on, but I think you get the idea. No wonder I was overweight! Seriously! Looking at this now, I don't see how I ever ate it. The thought of it makes me sick. Ugh, I don't get it. Ick!
Now,while I still *sort of* eat at some of these places, I make a lot better choices. The only thing I get from Mcdonalds is the coffee. I can't stomach the thought of their food. Wendy's is either a salad or a small chili, BK is... well nothing, I don't like anything from there, except their BBQ Chicken salad, which is a limited edition, so i don't count it... Subway I still get a steak and cheese, but it is on a flat bread, 6inch, no mayo, and I don't even eat it all.
So anyway, I am still having the great phone debate. I REALLY want to get a Smart Phone so I can have the Zombies Run! app, but the thought of paying all of that money for a phone makes me cringe and hurt inside. I have a hard time justifying a phone bill of over $100 a month when I don't even get service at my house. I will keep debating this over and over in my head for months I am sure!
I am working all this week. In fact, by the end of my shift on Saturday, I will have put in a total of 87 hours.
Sunday 9/22 = 12 hrs
Monday 9/23 = 13 hrs
Tuesday 9/24 = 13 hrs
Wednesday 9/25 = 12 hrs
Thursday 9/26 = 12 hrs
Friday 9/27 = 12 hrs
Saturday 9/28 = 13 hrs
That is a lot of work! I would also like to mention my house in under construction and they start work every morning at 7:00 - I get home from work on the 13 hour days at 7:00 am and at 5:00 am on the 12 hour days. I am thinking that I will eventually sleep just from sheer exhaustion. Oh, and I have to manage to fit some PC Fit in there somewhere. I went today at 10:00, and I know I will hit Friday at 5:30 am, but I would like to get another class in, just not sure which one. If I don't it isn't a *huge* deal, because next week my schedule will go back to normal, and I will be able to continue on.
I am dragging right now. I was up at around 8 this morning, and it is now 3:00 am, I have 4 more hours of work left, and when I get home, a construction crew will be putting siding on my house or something. Lucky for me, I have ear plugs, which I intend on using. Hopefully they help and I am able to get some much needed rest.
I think that is all for now. I have some pics to post later on of my awesome outfit today

I took an awesome PC Fit class today at 10:00 - I REALLY needed it. After all the crap that went on this weekend with work stress, and my the anniversary of my friend's death looming... a hard workout was what I REALLY needed.
I got to class and Coach Mike, Coach Paul and Coach Janelle were all there to take class too. Taking a class with 3 instructors/trainers is a little intimidating to say the least! I held my own, and by the end of the class, I think I pushed myself *that much* harder. I left with a good, accomplished feeling.
I then went to Boscov's to buy a pair of Hooker Boots. I have a few outfits that I think would look smashing with a nice pair of black, high heeled, leather knee high boots... so, i decided I would purchase them. I stood around the shoe department for about 15 mins before I finally gave up and went to another store. That store has such pi$$ poor customer service. I can never get anyone to wait on me!
I ended up at another store, and bought a very lovely pair of boots that are exactly what I wanted. I wore them to work tonight and they look smashing.
Not much else to report really...
Hope all of my Spark Friends have a wonderful evening
