Well I don't know what's going on right now. I had my normal bad breakfast but I packed a really good lunch. It's now 4:30 and I'm so not feeling good. I really hope I'm not getting sick. I can't afford to miss work. My Dad is my boss lol.

I did pack a really healthy lunch today and I didn't even eat it all. Of course, I packed lots of extra healthy snacks just in case so it doesn't matter. This weekend I will be going shopping so that I can keep taking healthy lunches. I have been struggling lately with eating out, so this week's goal was take lunch to work, next week I will also be trying to eat breakfast at home every day as I tend to sleep in and eat on the go.

Last night's dinner went well. A friend took me out because my birthday was a few weeks ago and this was the first time we were both free. We went to Turtle Jack's and he really spoiled me lol. We had garlic shrimp and chicken wings, then I had shrimp and scallops on steak with a baked potato, and then he went and ordered turtle cheesecake for dessert lol. I like sweets too much to not have some, we did share a piece though, not one each ^_^ I couldn't have eaten it all anyway.

I'm so not feeling guilty about it either because I had decided this week was about lunch only, plus it was for my birthday lol.

Anyway, hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

    Hope you are feeling better! One of the nice things about a lifestyle chance is that we are allowed to celebrate special occasions like birthdays without "falling off the wagon". They become the exception rather than the rule and that makes a huge difference for all of us! I am so pleased you enjoyed your dinner out in celebration and that you are planning on eating breakfast and taking your lunch to work...happy shopping for that!

You are doing so well making small changes and before you know it you will be living a lifestyle that you once thought impossible!!

Have a great weekend!

Another Rough Day

Thursday, June 03, 2010

I'm so frustrated right now. I'm having a tough time on this project at work. I really want some water but the tap water here is gross and I drank what I brought already. I'm beginning to get a headache and I still have to go out tonight, for dinner with a friend who has been trying to take me out for awhile for my birthday but our schedules were always conflicted and to a dance party, which should definitely make me feel better, dancing always does. But for right now, with my work day not over yet, I'm frustrated. My neck actually still hurts too, though it has improved with my chiropractor and having a massage. I may have to do that again next week or the week after to help it even more.

I think I need to go for a walk or something but I find it so difficult to just walk away when I'm in the middle of something, no matter how frustrating.

As well, the guy I mentioned earlier in a blog that I met on the internet, he keeps bugging me about meeting and just won't leave it alone. I was going to chat with him more and see but now I have decided I won't be meeting him for sure. Not in person anyway.

We've been having thunder storms too, the last few days, and I usually get headaches from them. We have another one on the way so I'm not looking forward to that. I could get a headache anytime now.

Sorry guys, for ranting and complaining but sometimes it helps to get it out there. At least I'm almost done work. Only an hour left now.

    Get a brita filter so you can filter out the water at work!! Or bring in a few nalgene bottles (plan in advance!!). I have like 6 nalgenes all over...

Go dance for your birthday! :) Boogie machine!

As for the internet guy, without knowing everything, I wouldn't give up on him too quickly. But if he sends out too many red flags it would be better to tell him to back up a bit or stop talking to him. I've tried online dating on and off for the last few years. Sometimes you have crazies and sometimes not. Sometimes I talk to them for a while before meeting but once you've met them in person you can decide if it will go anywhere. Just make sure you meet in a very public place. Good luck!

    I really hope you went for that walk As difficult as it is walking away from something frustrating and returning with a fresh attitude and eyes often helps you to get over the hurdle! I am pleased that you are blogging your frustrations and not eating them...what a great step in the right direction.

So very glad to hear that you have no plans on meeting the fellow you met on-line...what you said was just too we can all take a deep breath and not worry about you...ahhhh

Hope you have a wonderful dinner and dance evening tonight....that cures most things good company, good fun and shhhh but the dancing is

    Sorry you're having such a rough day. I agree with vamackgirl I would be careful at the very nice guy who is in a rush to meet you. From my experience alone if he is in that big of a hurry some thing is usually up!

    I hope you feel better babe, it IS ALWAYS GOOD TO VENT, that's why I am here for you! Lord knows you have listened to me a million times. Take a walk if you can, try to let the stress go (look who's talking right?).

I would be VERY leery of a "nice guy" from online if he is in such a hurry to meet you...RED FLAG!!!!! It is getting ready to thunderstorm here as well.............

Much love babe, we can make it through all of this together!!!

Not such a good day

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

I had 2 things happen to me this afternoon that are upsetting. One mildly so the other a bit more. Neither are related to eating though.

First my necklace broke today. It's one that has sentimental value so I was a bit upset. However it was only the chain that broke so I still have the pendant and i can replace the chain. Still mildly upsetting though.

Then I was fixing a drawing at work, a compound layout for a 50m tower. I had missed this one small thing, I had forgotten to move an arrow with an object so it wasn't pointing to the right spot anymore. So I fixed it and went back to the engineer to have him it. He asked me why I hadn't moved them together and I responded that it's easy to miss the small things and I was sorry. Then he noticed a text error, it was a formatting error, I explained I didn't do anything to that part of the drawing which is why I missed it, to which he responded "that's the problem, you didn't do anything" I know I shouldn't let it get to me but he could've been kinder, he could've said it differently, he could've made an allowance for my being a student and still learning. I can be very sensitive and that kind of criticism upsets me, no matter how much I try to not let it.

I do have hapkido tonight so I suppose I can work out any frustration on the guys in class lol.

    Yes something like this happened to me aswell, but I've been here going on 4 yrs now, anyways I've learned that no matter how nice and hard you might try to work to do something, if someone walks through that door pissy, it doesn't matter what you do, they're still going to be pissy when they walk back out. So don't stress yourself over it too much.

You work to live, you don't live to work. so enjoy the good times and forget the rest.

    Listen to the voice within that tells you what you're doing right. Focus on it and remember that you might hae just been the nearest target for somebody else's frustration that wasn't just about you either. redouble your effort to make a good impression tomorrow after you've worked out you own irritations. Better days ahead!

Hey guys,

I posted a blog earlier today with this month's goals. Everyone else seemed to be doing and i thought I would give it a try. If you read it you know I have set my goals small with no weight loss goal this month. I have decided this month will be for forming new habits like cooking at home and taking lunch to work. I am off to good start already, I packed lunch for today in my new lunch bag I got yesterday and it only just fit in. This is good though I could have gone with smaller portions still, but I'm not worrying about that this week.

I know I mentioned my neck has been bothering me. It's stiff and sore almost all the time now and I'm seeing my chiropractor a little more frequently right now, and I went for a massage yesterday as well. It was fairly painful but felt great too. Today though I am very tender in my shoulders and neck lol. That's to be expected though. Hopefully it helped, though it's hard to tell right now lol.

I guess I'll leave it at that for today, not too much is new since yesterday's blog lol.

Have a great day guys!


June's Goals

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

Well, so far I haven't been doing any regular updates specifically for goals. I have decided to follow others examples and start doing one at the beginning of every month. So here are my goals for June:

1. Organise my kitchen so I have one less excuse to eat out

2. Eat out less often - I have set some goals on the other goals page so I can track when I eat at home.

3. Take lunch to work every day

4. Track EVERYTHING I eat no matter how bad a day I have

5. Start eating breakfast at home

6. Keep my gym bag packed and in my car

7. Exercise 240 minutes per week

8. Start getting up early to go swimming at least 1 time per week

9. Blog/Vlog at least 2 times per week

10. Keep my team goals tracked and up to date.

You may notice I don't have a weight loss goal set this month. I have decided that I need to some time to get used to some new habits, like not eating out anymore, before I worry about how much I lose in a month. So this month is all about getting prepared and forming some new habits.

I have set my goal this year to lose 50 pounds by Dec 31, that's 10 pounds per month with 1 month for habit forming and an allowance for some days/weeks that don't go exactly as planned. I think this is realistic and achievable and hopefully this way I won't get discouraged like I always have in the past. At the beginning of next month I will update with how I did and set some new goals for July.

  Your goals sound very realistic and I may have to borrow some of them! I'm sure you'll achieve each and every one and who knows- may end up pleasantly surprised with the amount of weight you lose with your changes. =]
