Here we are in December already. November was a month of ups a downs. I will get the downs done, and out of the way.
We lost four more residents at work, so our hours were cut down even more. I was working from 2pm until 8:30pm. As a caregiver and 2pm until 10pm as med aide. I just thank God that I had more med aide shifts than caregiving shifts. I still felt bad for the other caregivers.
Been going through hell with my Autistic teenage son. His medications are not working like they should, we have been trying along with the doctor to see how much he is going to have to start taking. Also he has become quite mouthy lately. Sassing both me and his father, picking on his brothers. My middle child has been getting very agitated lately, and hitting, pinching, and kicking his brothers. The youngest won't listen to anything you tell him, and has a fit every time you tell him no.
Now that the bad stuff is out of the way, now on to the good stuff.
I have managed to lose 4 pounds this week, so I am getting back on the right track again.
A friend of mine at work had her baby on November 8th. Evan was born weighing in at 4 pounds 5 ounces. He was able to come home from the hospital yesterday.
I have my car totally paid off. I can now start concentrating on other bills.
The boys go back to school tomorrow.
Have a great day everybody.

After four weeks of ups and downs. I have decided to start from square one again, and get back on track with my weight loss. I have been having some problems with getting my life together. Finally went to the doctor on Thursday, and was diagnosed with having a panic disorder. Now that I finally have a name to my problems, and the doctor has me on medication for it. Hopefully now I can get back on track.
My computer service was down for a couple of days while they were putting in new fiber optics for our internet service. Now I have faster computer service. It's going to be better than the old lines, that made the internet run so slow.
I ended up in the hospital on Wednesday for a couple of days with a twisted bowel. I have been through this before. The experience is no fun. They put a nasal gastric tube down you. Nothing to eat or drink, until the bowel untwist itself, and you are able to have a bowel movement. I got lucky this time and the bowel untwisted late Thursday night. I was released the next day. I can go back to work on Monday. The doctor has me on s
tool softners now to see if it will help. The last time it happened 5 years ago I was in the hospital for almost 6 days, and ended up almost having surgery. It also means lots of fiber
It's back to the gym on Monday. I got into a depression and lost all of my motivation to keep up with my exercising. I would get up in the mornings, and all I wanted to do was sleep until I would go to work, and then go to work, come home, and want to go right to bed. I gained some weight back again. I have to get motivated, and get back on the road to a healthy life again.

Happy October everybody. I would have blogged yesterday, but ended up having to go into work early. Woke up this morning, not wanting to get out of my nice warm covers. Woke up with stuffed up nose, and soar throat. I am hoping that I am not trying to come down with a cold. Still going to the gym this morning, and see what I can do. I still have to go to work today.
It is very cold this morning. I had to scrape ice off of my windows this morning, before taking the boys to the bus stop. I wanted to share the biggest accomplishment to this date. It's not about how many minutes of fitness I did or even the pounds I have lost. It's one that I have been battling for almost four years now. First I will give you the back story, and then share my biggest accomplishment.
In March of 2010 I was sexually assaulted at work. I wish it didn't happen, but it did. I went into a depression and gained weight. I had a hard time getting around people especially men. I had a hard time telling people to get out of my space and to leave me alone. I have been living with this four the past three and half years. The other day at work I finally came out of my shell.
The other night One of my male co-workers, kept getting a little to close into my personal space last evening. I kept telling him to please back away from me, and then I will talk to you. Kept getting in my space. I finally looked at him, and told him that if he didn't get out of my space I would turn him in. He backed off and called me a bitch. while he was walking away.
one of my female coworkers took me into the nurses station, and asked me what was going on. I told that I was uneasy to be to close to men. Then told her of the sexual assault that happened three years ago. She gave me a big hug, and asked if there was someone I could talk to. I told her I was willing to talk to anybody. She told him he was to leave me alone or she was going to call the nurse and the administrator. He left me alone the rest of the evening.
To be able to finally come out of my shell. I felt good, I felt like I had taken my life back again.

Happy Saturday everybody. Went to the doctor yesterday, and everything is looking good.
My blood pressure was good. 114/70. My blood glucose level was excellent. 70. The doctor is ordering me some support hose for my varicose veins. He wants me to wear them for the next three months, and then I go in December and see how the socks are working. If they are working, then I will continue to wear them. If they don't work, then he wants me to see a vein specialist.
After my appointment yesterday morning. I headed for the gym. Had a good workout. 30 minutes on the treadmill(2.5mph 3.0 incline), stationary bike 30 minutes, and 20 minutes of strength. After my workout I went over to McDonalds and had a strawberry banana smoothie, and then got some watermelon spears at Wal-Mart for my lunch.
Today has been going pretty well. I went to bed early last night, and didn't get out of bed until almost 8am. Fixed breakfast and then went to the gym. 30 minutes on the treadmill(2.5mph 3.0 incline), 30 minutes on stationary bike, 30 minutes of strength. Came home and fixed lunch, and even had a nap.
Tonight is movie night with the family. Just trying to figure out what movie we want to see this evening.
I believe in angels,
The kind that heaven sends,
I am surrounded by angels,
But I call them friends
