Well I didn't pass/Stressed out

Thursday, September 18, 2014

So I didn't pass the exam today. Which makes no sense because they said I had to get an 85 on the simulated exam to pass. Today my 4 simulated exam scores were... 84, 82, 86, and 88. So how in the world do I get a 70 on the test and fail? I have no idea!!! I am beyond frustrated.

The instructor felt bad for me because he believes I should have passed also... so he is sending me to take the state exam on Saturday. Awesome... So now I get to spend the next two days being stressed out about this exam and worried about passing this one since I can't pass the exam before it. Not happy. I would feel so much better about it if I had passed.

Didn't get my exercise in today because it takes an hour to get to the exam place and I was there for a long time today. Came home emotionally drained from everything. Need to stay away from the testing for tomorrow need the break.

Planning on getting my exercise in tomorrow morning then going to a job fair then back to studying until I can't anymore. I hate being stressed out from stuff like this.

Hoping for a better day tomorrow.

    So sorry Lisa, do you mind if I ask you what position you were trying for? Your mareks seemed great! I do know that the expectations are often high tough, and typically lots of applicants. Good luck on Saturday...everything crossable is crossed for you now....did you know you had a twin? emoticon emoticon

    I'm sorry you didn't pass. Hope the next test is better. Exercise is a great way to burn off all the cortisol that stress creates, and I know that you do like to exercise, so maybe set a timer and take a fitness break every half hour?
Good luck Saturday. We're rooting for you!!

    I'm sorry - I think you should definitely make today a fun & relaxing one. Try not to stress... study, but don't over do it. Maybe you're putting so much in your head that you're overthinking the answers??? Sounds like you should have passed this one and the one before. Hopefully Sunday will be the charm! Try not to let this get you down.

So I don't know if I am going to pass this test tomorrow

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

So I don't know if I am going to pass this test tomorrow. I have studied and I have had good quiz scores and bad. I am going to the class again tomorrow but mostly to take the exam. I have tried the practice test multiple times now and I keep failing. Awesome. My honey says do the best that I can if I don't pass then it wasn't meant to be. I just want to pass I put in a lot of effort for this and to get nothing from it just sucks. I don't want to be up all night either because that is not good. Its for a job that I can do. I am limited for the moment and I have to accept that but I am frustrated. Grr. I just need a freaking job! I am a capable person this shouldn't be so hard!!!

    It sounds like you are stressed about it all. I say JUST DO IT! Write the test! Don't spend any more time on prepping, clearly you have done it over and over again. Once you get the results.....you can go forward one way or the other. I know how much you want to work again, and how much you want to continue to make decent money. If this job does not pan out, believe enough in yourself to know...that you will find a good fit. It may take time. I also know you want this before November. I wish you luck!!!! emoticon emoticon

Busy Busy

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Well first off I changed my ticker to a football and football field because its football season! Go EAGLES! 2-0 baby!

Ok I have a lot of studying to do tomorrow to hopefully pass this exam on Thursday. Its not my dream job but its a job. And I need a new one before November. I am also going to a job fair on Friday hoping there will be something there for me. I did go to a job interview recently and I can totally do the job and the hours are great however the starting rate is so much smaller than what I make on disability/at my old job that I just can't do it.

I am also really trying to make sure that I get my fitness minutes in. Really upset that I was unable to go on a bike ride Monday. My guy didn't want to do it and I can't get the bike up and down the stairs without him. So we had some movie time instead. It was nice spending time with him since he was off of work. I hit the gym today for 90 minutes hoping to get a workout in tomorrow between studying and cleaning.

Have a good night everyone.

0.6 this week (5% baby!)

Monday, September 15, 2014

Normally this would bother me but it doesn't this week. But a loss is a loss even if it is only 0.6 pounds! I mean yes I worked out hard. I was even more active over the weekend then I have been the last few weeks. But I was over in calories a lot this past week. With a wedding and a birthday and will admit I indulged in some sweets during those things. I also really wanted a pumpkin smoothie from wawa last night. Did not realize just how many calories were in it though. :( so that put me over last night also. So it was definitely the worst food week for me so far. But I still managed to lose something which makes me feel good. I also lost just enough to have lost 5% of my body weight in one of my groups which makes me feel amazing! Now I can move on to the next 5%!

I still have not noticed any difference in my clothes and no one has said that I look any skinnier but I am hoping that will come soon. With the colder months coming soon I know that I will be bundling up more. But today its a good day. Here's to 5%!

    Yes it is a loss - that is great! It won't be too much longer and you will start seeing results. Have you taken measurements & pictures? For the longest time I couldn't see any difference and then I started comparing photos - it was an eye opener.

Either way, you're doing great. Keep up the hard work - it pays off!

    Great job Lisa! Don't forget our WI days are Wednesday for the Fall Frenzy challenge. Is your WI day for another challenge on a Monday? Anyway, not a biggie, just remember to record it on Wed for Fall Frenzy tracking! I look forward to the day that someone sees physical changes in me. A friend of mine called me today, she lives in Texas now. Anyway....she knows I have been working hard the last few months. Wanted to know how much I have lost. Asks me every week.....drives me a bit crazy as I don't believe it is hear the good news, just the bad. Anyway, today I was telling her my health concerns and one of the worries I have related to my tummy. The question rose again, have you lost any weight. Before I could respond she says...she lost 12 in the last 3 weeks. Oh and that age has a lot to do with why I am losing so slow. Excepting she is 10 years older than me. Anyway, no matter, what I am saying is what we see and feel is most important and Lisa, it will come. If we plug away at it, modify a few things here and there, it will happen. SO CONGRATULATIONS on your hard work and SUCCESS to date!!!!!

I'm DONE Girl of the Week? (and this weekend)

Sunday, September 14, 2014

First off ME? I am shocked! Thank you so much. I am amazed by the support everyone has shown me via goodies and messages. I am really extra motivated to keep going with this journey because of all of you. If you haven't checked out this group you should. Everyone is awesome!

So I have been a little busy the past couple of days. Ran around like a crazy person on Friday getting everything ready for the yard sale Saturday and last minute errands before the wedding Friday night. I went over in calories on Friday. I am ok with it. I expected it to happen. I had breakfast then nothing the rest of the day til the wedding so I ended up eating more (it was buffet style and I could only have two items because of my allergy) and of course they had amazing deserts along with wedding cake. Oh well I had fun and everything I ate was delicious.

Saturday I got no sleep ok I got 3 hours but that is not enough! I ran around from 5:30 am until 1:30 pm at the yard sale then it started raining and it was time to rush everything into the truck and car. Crazy!! I did make some money so yay for that. I ended up having pizza for lunch. Then came home was on the computer for a bit and BAM! passed out for an hour or so and woke up feeling like crud :( so had soup and hot chocolate a toast the rest of the night. Not even sure if I logged everything.

Today I got some sleep! Yay! Went out for breakfast with my parents and ran around some. Less hectic of a day which I am happy for. Updated my facebook page for the candles I am selling so I am hoping for more sales now that the holidays are coming up. As for tomorrow hoping to do something outside since the weather is supposed to be nice. My guy is off so maybe we can do a bike ride :)
