Well now I know why I have gained so much weight.

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

These past few days I have done what I used to do, sit around and hangout with my guy watching movies and we ordered out pizza for lunch one day. I didn't realize just how inactive I have been. I have been wearing my fit bit and the amount of activity I had the last two days was just pathetic. Before I also would have snacked all day and not have recorded anything I ate. I now see why the weight has just piled on.

I was pushed down from the cancer, the surgery, the chemo, and the radiation and felt like I couldn't get back up. Everything changed. I was sick and I was tired and my whole body changed. I am doing my best to get back up. To be the person I want to be and that I feel I am on the inside. I am sick of hiding from people I used to work with and being quiet. I want to be me again.

I feel as though I have taken some great steps this past month. Lost 10 pounds in less than a month. There has been progress I guess I will be scared once I hit that plateau which I know will happen. But I have to say that I am very happy to be doing more and I am beginning to feel more like the person I was before I was diagnosed with cancer.

Here is hoping to a great month with more progress.

    You have been through a lot! It is important to keep things in perspective as well as ensuring you don't over do things either. You are doing amazingly well. God.....I certainly can't keep up with the mileage you are doing girl!

I certainly can't give all sorts of advice I have to get myself back to a good place. HOWEVER I do feel that it is better to go and steady and listen to our bodies, opposed to going all gung-ho and then throwing in the towel. The all or nothing attitude so many of us have has to change. We need good health throughout our lives and the tools we use to keep it that way have to be used consistently. Take care of you! AND CONGRATS on your 3.5 weight loss this weak teamie! emoticon emoticon

    Wishing you a great month!

You are right, all those things take a toll on the body, and it does take time to bounce back, so don't be too hard on yourself. emoticon

September Goals!

Monday, September 01, 2014

Main goals this month

1. Hit 1500 fitness minutes
2. Lose 10 lbs this month
3. Get my fruit and veggie numbers at least 4 days a week.
4. Be active in my spark teams and their challenges

Plan to be outdoors as much as I can and hopefully have a new job. I only have until November until my disability runs out so I really need to have a job before then. I also hope to have enough money for some more physical therapy sessions.

Well that didn't go according to plan.

So worked my ass off for this class and got one of the best scores on the pre-exam but I still failed the next exam. So frustrating. Now I have to take a boot-camp class for one day next week and if I don't end up passing the exam this next time I am done. You only have two chances. And the instructor was surprised that I didn't pass. Thanks for making me feel worse dude. I am so disappointed. I barely got any sleep because of all the studying I did and I did more quizzes than anyone. Damn Frustrating! Really want to crawl up into a ball over this. Trying not to but it seriously sucks.

    That sounds frustrating and disappointing. Hopefully the next try will be great - especially with you doing the best on the pre exam (are you sure they graded the test correctly???). Anyway, try not to stress about taking it again. You know this stuff & you can do it. Fingers crossed for you!

Keep at it and don't let the b******s get you down. Just give yourself a break, clear your mind, take a deep breath…and ace those exams.

Frustrated with this stupid class!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Ok so I am taking this licencing class for a possible job. It is so frustrating! I am getting a headache from all the material. A freaking 6 hour class in which they want another 3 hours of homework done before the next day? When I was told about this they said it would be 1 hour of homework which is much easier for me being as I am super busy this week. I have to take 9 quizzes and pass them tonight so far I have only passed one and I have been trying for over an hour. Maybe I am just not cut out for this. I just don't know what to do.

And to make matters worse I received an email for a job in which I would need this licence for more money than I make now but they want me available 8-8 on the weekends which doesn't work for me.

I really just want to throw something!!!!!


Just another manic Monday!

Monday, August 25, 2014

So I did a lot of running around today. I have a possible job coming up I have to take some classes Tues- Friday this week. For like 6 hours a day. Job better be worth the pay and the 40 minute drive at the end of this. Either way I will get a certificate out of it. So I got things to pack for lunch because there is a lunch break and I don't know where to get food out there. Also I have to make sure I eat well at lunch this week because Wed and Thursday this week will probably be dinner out because we have free movie tickets Wed to see that new movie SO above Now below (it officially comes out on Friday) and Thursday night we are going to our first EAGLES game! I am so excited!!!!! It is a pre-season game but I don't care we got great seats at a great price. But because of the time I will be home after this class we won't have time to make dinner just grab and go. And I am talking no time to microwave. Its that close.

Anyway it looks like it will be a busy week. My plan is to get up early to do a workout before hand because of the long drive to and from and the busy week ahead.

It was also a good day because I lost 2.8 pounds since last week!!!!!

    Great job on the weight loss!!! Did you enjoy the Eagles game?! One of my friends took her 3 sons to the same one ~ I'm a PA girl but I like the Carolina Panthers, but I will still route for your boys on occasion!

Sounds like it was a rough week - hope the weekend is better!
