To treat or not to treat

Monday, February 14, 2011

Again...there is chocolate at work. M&M's (peanut butter and peanuts), milk duds, whoppers. Again, I will NOT be having any.

If and when I am going to treat myself, it is going to be what I want it to be. I will not eat something just because it is there. In the past, I would have. I am no longer that girl. I am a stronger girl. Now, I am a girl that thinks before I eat. I am a girl that does not turn to food anymore when I am feeling stressed or sad or bored.

I am a new girl emoticon

    I'm with you. If you are going to have something "off plan" make it something so amazing, your mouth waters just thinking about it afterwards. :)

Never thought I'd be a "small" anything!

Sunday, February 13, 2011

I went shopping today/yesterday (for normal people) in search of scrubs.

I tried on many different styles, brands and sizes.

I ended up buying 3 pairs of "Scrubs" pants (soooo comfortable!) and 4 tops (also "Scrubs" brand) all for about $150! Not too bad!

The sizes? Pants are medium-average and the tops are small! As the blog title states, I never thought I'd be a "small" anything! All of the changes I have made are paying off!

I am actually excited to go back to work (did I really just say that?!?! hehe) so that I can wear my new scrubs.

3 nights of work....then vacation time!!

Enjoying my time off

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I really enjoyed my first night off from work. I have one more than back for 3, then off for 15!!!

I have almost finished our taxes and am pleased with the results :-)

I weighed in last night and am very happy with the progress. Even though I had the stress of my dad being in town and the stress at work- I lost 0.5 lbs. I am under 160, not much under- but still under!! Woo hoo! Haven't been under 160 in at least 5 years. It feels nice.

Enjoy your weekend sparkers!

Is feeling the burn (out)

Friday, February 11, 2011

Tonight is my 3rd night of work for the week. I will have 2 nights off after tonight, then back for 3 more. After I make it through those 3 nights, I will have 15 nights off! emoticon

We are going on a cruise to Cabo San Lucas for 5 days and I plan on getting lots of exercise and hiking in while I'm off! I will make a conscious effort to not think about work.

I am so burnt out!

    Absolutely do NOT think about work when you're not there!!!! I'm not sure about you, but that is one reason I'm punching a clock....when I punch out... it stays right there until I punch in again... Cabo San Lucas??????? Awesome!!! Maybe you can post some pics! I KNOW you will not think of work, once you are there.........This is a great time of the year for a cruise. Take care of you.... only 3 more shifts.... piece of cake!! emoticon
