Counting Cals to make the days COUNT!

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Short Blog:

For the month of October I will be counting my calories and sticking to a limit. My net cal goal will be 1500 most days. I will change based on the weight loss I see. I did VERY good with my September goal of cardio exercise on most days. Joined the gym and have been active daily in some form or fashion. So I think setting monthly goals works well for me. :=)

Count Calories.
Stick to set limits (discipline is key).
Make it to New Years weighing LESS than I weighed last New Years.
Eat 2 pieces of FRUIT and 2 vegetables each day.
Exercise 5 days a week. (preferably daily).
Lift weights twice a week.
Record calories, weight, exercise.

Let's Get it.
Gonna Make it Happen.

Disappointed, but I'll survive :-)

Just wanted to vent real quick. But I'm going to keep it brief. Basically, I just got rejected. and it hurts... but I'll be strong, feel the pain, and get over it. :) At least he was finally honest enough to say what I had been thinking, he just wants to be friends... (he says "I just want to be friends... right now, you know until I figure out everything... all the things in my head. " OH and you know, he would prefer if I didn't date anyone else.... but he knows he can't control that.)

emoticon Um, get out of here. I may not be what you want. I may not be what you're looking for or light your fire... but I am not a toy. If you want to be only friends now, that's fine, but you'd better recognize, we will only be friends later too. I'm not gonna wait around until you decide to "settle" on me. I'm a good person and I deserve someone who wants me with no reservations.

So that's my rant. And I'm done. Off to shed a few tears and move on. Have a good night. :)

    Totally have been there. Moving on is hard but it feels so good when you finally do become indifferent towards this person. Any guy should be happy and proud to call you his girl. You're a real catch. Keep your head high. You'll find your sweetheart who will treat you like the queen you are!

    We've ALL been there!!! Keep your head up and NEVER settle. When he realizes his mistake, he'll be back (they usually always come back) but stay strong!!! I have a situation currently where Mr.'Let's Just Be Friends' has recently resurfaced...I think you said it best, "Um, get out of here." LOL!!!

Hate to quote Beyonce, but her lyrics seem perfect for your situation (sing it to that loser in your head, and he's definitely a loser because he lost out on you!)

"Thank God you blew it
Thank God I dodged the bullet
I'm so over you
So baby good lookin' out

I wanted you back
I'm so through with that
Cause honestly you turned out to be the best thing I never had
You turned out to be the best thing I never had
And I'm gon' always be the best thing you never had
Oh I bet it sucks to be you right now"

    Shooooooot, doesn't sound like HE may not be the one YOU want. More importantly, YOU shouldn't settle. Stay up and do you. Keep your head up and everything else is sure to fall into place.

    Well-spoken and you are so wise. Stick to your guns on this one and you WILL meet the "right" kind of guy who appreciates you right now, for exactly who you are.
Let yourself feel the hurt and then move on, just like you said. The best is yet to come!

    Girl! Your blog hits home with me! Don't let any man (or woman for that matter) make you feel like a toy! Who do these people think they are?

You ARE a great person and you DO deserve someone that loves you, no reservations! Kick this jerk face to the curb and thank your lucky stars that now you get the opportunity to find someone SO MUCH BETTER!!!

But the tears first are a must! Get all your emotions out, healing will come, in time!

A day of recovery:

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

I was on call from 11 am on Mon- 4 am Tues. So I slept in a little today and woke up and decided I could use today to relax.

I ventured out to Borders and took advantage of their 60-80% off sale. I bought 5 books and 3 audio books for $45. I have a book buying problem. lol I should just use the library more but I really like to own my books. :-) I also like the library. I seem to be addicted to reading.

As we speak, I am sitting on my recliner with my books and am going to take some time to rejuvenate my mind and prepare for the week ahead. I will be reading my fitness magazines and new books today, had a good cup of coffee and am letting my mind be free.

Oh and to update you, I stayed active yesterday while I was on call. I walked around the hospital instead of calling/sending an email and made a few extra trips back in forth for the exercise. In the span of a 16+ hour shift I'm sure I squeezed 30+ mins of walking in. (not to mention I actually counted more than 30 mins). :-D

Stay active my friends!

Saturday: Soul rejuventation

Day 4 of logging. I get my gift tomorrow. :)

I saw this quote on my page and found it inspiring. Even though it's been on my page for years, I figured I would share.

Rest but never quit. Even the sun has a sinking spell each evening. But it always rises the next morning. At sunrise, every soul is born again."
