It's been over a month!

Sunday, September 22, 2013


Well. It has been a crazy time since I last posted. I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post. I've had lots of family drama. I was sick and ended up in the hospital for 4 days. I'm finally starting to feel better. My gym finally opens back up tomorrow. I plan on being there.

I'm back to tracking calories. Tomorrow I'm working on my sleep schedule. I didn't wake up today until 2:45p. That's just craziness. The only reason I slept so long is because I'm lazy and like sleep.

Today I'm cleaning my house. It is in horrible shape because of me being sick. So far I've cleaned the shower. I need to go start laundry, finish cleaning the bathroom, do dishes, and clean the kitchen.

I ended up losing my job because of being sick. I'm trying to stay positive about it. It means I have more time to be at home and more time to be with my husband.

Not much else to say. I'm not very talkative today.

    Sorry to hear of your being ill and also losing your job. You seem to be staying positive about it an that's good. I think it's the PCOS that makes you like to sleep. I'm that way, too. Don't beat yourself up! You have your projects (cleaning) and your gym plan and you haven't given up!

The family at my family reunion.

Today I have stayed in my calorie range. My mom and I went out to eat for lunch, but I only ate half my food so I ate the rest for dinner. I'm still within range right now, but I'll probably eat one more time before going to bed. I think I'll try to stick with watermelon and tomatoes. Maybe a mozzarella stick.

I didn't do any actual work out today, but I did go walk around two stores for a couple hours so I'm not broken hearted over not getting in regimented workout. My foot is killing me so I'm not going to do anything else on it. Tomorrow starts my 4 work days in a row. So I won't be seeing the husband much. I work 6p-12a Monday and Tuesday and 5p-11p Wednesday and Thursday. So I will be gone before the husband gets home from work. And I'll need to get in to bed as soon as I get home. Next Thursday I start school so it's time to get used to the correct sleep schedule.

I spent today doing lots of laundry. Probably 8 loads, but I wanted to get laundry done for the entire week. Clean bedding, clean towels, and clean clothes.

Tonight is the husband and I's 7 year anniversary (our dating one, not wedding). We usually celebrate it more than the wedding anniversary. It means more to me than our wedding anniversary. Then again a lot of our wedding was just for outside influences. We were already living together and completely committed before the wedding. It just let me start calling the husband, The Husband. Which is what I call him. There's no telling what he calls me. I know his friend calls his wife OB for oppressive.... well. anywho. We didn't really celebrate today. Mainly because of finances. I sat down and watched Breaking Bad with him, because I wanted to spend time with him. But otherwise I've barely been home trying to get laundry done and shopping done for the week.

Here's hoping this week isn't as horrible as I think it might be.

I took a walk.

Katie and I on family vaca.

I did horrible on calories today. I came in at 2,700 calories. That's unacceptable. I'm going to start tracking. I have to. I also need to start cooking food at home. I haven't been. It's time.

Tonight I took the dogs for a walk. I walked for 45 minutes. I'm also about to put some time in on the Wii. I miss that thing. I'm finally able to do exercise. I'm trying to not set unattainable goals. I think just getting any exercise will be an accomplishment.

August Goals:
- Get out of the 240's
- Track calories 5/7 days a week (tracked today)
- Drink 64 ounces of water daily (probably not quite 64 ounces, but a good start)
- Make it to school everyday this month (I start the 21st, only 8 days of school in August)

Today I'm going to be honest with myself and August goals

Saturday, August 10, 2013

The husband and I on vacation.

My mom, who took the picture, told me to point at something.... It did not turn out quite how she pictured it.

Welp. Yesterday I got to start walking around the house without the boot on. All barefoot and fanciful. The main reason I'm barefoot is because none of my shoes have been worn the same way anymore so it throws me off. Which is weird because I do just fine with the boot and a shoe, which are two totally different heights, but whatever. My foot feels so odd to walk with. It takes it a little bit longer to do what I want it too. I also tried popping my toes last night because one was catching. BAD idea. They have not stretched that way in months. It hurt so bad. SO I will be stretching my toes between now and the next attempt to bend my toes forward.

I haven't been able to go on a walk since my last blog. I work late Wednesday and Thursday (5p-11p) so I can't walk after work. And because I work so late I try to sleep in on those morning. Then it's too hot to walk. The gym I was going to is closed because of roof damage from the tornado that went through. Hopefully it opens up soon [especially since I'm pretty sure they are still charging my mom a membership fee (it's an Anytime Fitness so we could drive the 20 miles to the next one over, but gas is expensive we haven't)].

Today I'm at work for 7 hours. 7 boring hours. The other worker I split my shift with isn't here so all 7 hours will be spent sitting at the circulation desk. Where I can't get up and leave. So it's just sitting here. Luckily I have my laptop so I'm not completely sitting here staring at a blank wall.

Today I'm going to be honest with myself. I'm adding the spark tracker to my phone again. I've just been blindly eating. On a whim I added my breakfast and snack to my tracker today. I only have 400 calories left for the entire day. I mean I knew what I had was bad, but wow. I have to start tracking. I have to be accountable. I really wish I had someone I could talk to all day (not constant just randomly through out the day).

OH OH OH AND my best friend is getting married. I'm her matron of honor. I have got to lose some weight. And I need to have the weight gone by at least 6 weeks before the wedding so if I need a bridesmaid dress altered I can have that done. So, it's time to buckle down and work my ass off, literally.

August Goals:
- Get out of the 240's
- Track calories 5/7 days a week
- Drink 64 ounces of water daily
- Make it to school everyday this month (I start the 21st, only 8 days of school in August)


I went for a walk

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Some glass bowls I saw while on vacation.

Last Friday I got my cast off and got a walking boot put on. I can take it off to sleep, but besides that it stays on this week. I'll slowly get to take it off more in the coming weeks. I went for a walk tonight with the dogs. It was nice to get out and exercise. It's been so long since I could do that. My foot doesn't hurt much, just on the heel which I figure is from just not using it.

Not much else to say tonight. I'm kind of tired.

    I bet it did feel good. Take it slow and soon you'll get rid of that heel pain and be able to enjoy it even more.
