Night blog...

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

This day has been crazy.

I woke up with an upset stomach, so I took the morning off. I had an eye appointment, so I went and found out my prescription stayed the same, but my eyes are seriously fatigued from the long commute plus the excessive computer time... SO I have on order, a new pair of special glasses that I have to wear while I'm working on the computer. Glass is half full, right?? I gave them my insurance card (husband's insurance)... I have vision insurance!! WOOT!

All of this took way longer than I expected and got to work around 1. It was desolate. I think there were 5 of us there.

I headed up to the city to do all the things I meant to yesterday, but got waylayed checking on my patient. I headed to the bank and picked up my mom's paper. I got to have dinner with the husby and now I'm at his office enjoying a little quiet time together. He is on night shift for the next 5 or so days. Whenever I get done here, I still need to do our recycling and head back up to husby's house. I don't like staying there by myself, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

Needless to say, I didn't exercise today, but I did stay on track food wise.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be a "normal" day. :)

Have a great night, sparkpeople.

Love to all.

    Hello xx Sounds like me and you were not having the best day yesterday. Both had a lot on, both didn't get any exercise! I am pleased to see you stayed with your diet though....unlike me emoticon lol I am realy on one with it all today though - going to be the best spark hero I can be!

Really pleased your patient was ok and very pleased that your hubby is going to try and make a suprise visit on thanksgiving. Being from the Uk we dont have one :-( I bet its a wonderful day :-)

Sending hugs and thank you for being an excellent spark buddy! You always motivate me and cheer me up. I really appreciate your support xx emoticon emoticon emoticon

Good morning Sparkpeople!

I am beyond tired to the point that I think I'm euphoric. :)

I had a hard shift yesterday. Actually, I only had two calls, but they were back to back and at the end of the shift. The rest of the shift was quite peaceful!

I am looking forward to 4 days off this week. The owner of the company was gracious enough to give us the day after Thanksgiving off and I'm not working this weekend! WOOT!

I'm a little bummed that husby and I are not spending Thanksgiving day together, but I'm spending it with my family while he works. We will celebrate his family the Friday after.

I am going to try to visit one of my patient's in the hospital this afternoon. It was by far one of the nastiest fractures I've ever seen. I've never had looking at an x-ray make me wince until yesterday. Holy cow they did a number on themselves. They were transferred from the hospital to the trauma center for surgery, which is the same hospital my husby works at, so my visit to the hospital will serve two purposes! :)

Anyway, I need to get to work... although I'm not really motivated.

Gateway to 8k week 2 today. I forgot to download the podcast... AGAIN! :)

Tried to video blog...

Sunday, November 21, 2010

but apparently I'm more technically challenged than I thought. I'll try again at a later date.

I got up this morning and did circuit training. I need to log that still here and on dailymile.

I am going to try to walk later on today. There's a very nice loop behind the station.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

    My first video blog did not work because I tried posting it under blog instead of v blog, video blog or whatever they call it. I have yet to learn how to keep my videos from automatically playing so after a day or two I delete them. Have a fabulous day!

I am not crazy...

Saturday, November 20, 2010

I KNEW I needed to weigh myself everyday. I was trying to be good and wait until I got home, so I hadn't weighed myself in a week. I was up 5 pounds. Ok, so maybe being obsessive about weighing myself ISN'T a bad thing! :(

I am especially bothered by this since Thanksgiving is coming up, I have about 5 weeks before my goal date and now I am 10 pounds from goal.


I am at the ambulance station until 8PM tonight. Hoping for a slow day. I am not feeling 100% and could use some rest. I am reassured this may happen since there is another medic crew on duty as well.

Have a great weekend!

    I'm a daily weigher. I hear some people say that is a bad thing, but it keeps me on track. I think its whatever works for that person. Hope you have a great rest of your weekend, and here's hoping them 5 lbs get lost!!!

    My son-n-law volunters at our fire station. He passed his EMT classes this year. They've been really busy with the colder weather and icy roads.

You live in a beautiful State. :) I love being outdoors myself.
Thank you for popping in and joining me!

Dinner party

Friday, November 19, 2010

It was pretty good. I did well with my eating and drinking...

1 finger sandwich
1/2 pepperoni roll
handful of olives
1 light beer
2 regular beers

I bought a new pair of shoes and stockings for the party. Several people commented on how I "clean up well". LOL. Most of them see me in coveralls working on cars or in jeans. I wore a short black skirt and a white top.

I think I have a UTI. I am fighting in tooth and nail though. I don't want to be on antibiotics again. They make me feel worse than what they're treating most of the time. Instead, I'm drinking water, water and more water and taking my cranberry supplement three times a day instead of once a day. I'm hoping I can flush it out of my system.

I have gateway to 8k today. I am supposed to lift when I get home, but my mom needs help moving/stacking firewood. I think that's "lifting"!!

I have to work again this weekend... I am soooo looking forward to next weekend. Husby and I both have two days off... TOGETHER! :) :) :) :)

ok, everybody have a wonderful weekend and stay safe out there.

    I so understand those rare "off together" days. We will have Thanksgiving off together, then I am off and he goes back to work, Fri. & Sat. And even though many schools are off on Wed. we work. Trying to get in my swims, and prepare for traveling to Thanksgiving dinner & take food. Hope you are feeling better soon.

emoticon Sane eating on Thanksgiving!
