Sick, noooo

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

It seems like half of the people I know now have some kind of sickness. The weather has been warm, cold, warm, freezing, warm, cold, warm and now it is snowing! No wonder I got an ear infection and sinus infection, yuck. I had to wait 2 hours to see my Doctor on Tuesday. I also had to wait a few hours for my antibiotics!

My throat hurts, but it isn't as bad as it could be. Hopefully it clears up really fast! I can tell when I have something more than a small cold, so that is why I went to get some meds ASAP. I don't really feel better yet, but I am trying to get better! It gets much worse at night. I almost don't want to sleep because I know I get worse in the morning. I hope everyone else is feeling good!

I am going to try to go to work tomorrow even though I really don't want to. I know it will be stressful when I get back. It is always stressful! There will be a lot to do though since I was out for 2 days.

The diet has been ok so far. I still don't really feel like eating. I know I should because I am feeling sick - and I need to eat in general. I just haven't had a big appetite since the weekend. That can be good and bad at the same time. I need food, but I really don't feel like making it or eating it! I already packed my work lunch for tomorrow, so I won't have to go out to get anything.

Have a great night & rest of the week!

Back to normal after a fun weekend!

Monday, February 06, 2012

My fiance and I had a blast with all of his birthday plans. I went over calories Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! I am not even mad at myself though. Before this past weekend, I think I only went over calories four times at the most since I started Spark in August. But I didn't have any cake, I didn't get the meat part of the buffet we went to, and I still tracked everything the best I could!

My gall bladder incisions are almost healed, so I want to start working out again soon. I won't go too crazy, but I want to start walking more with the pup if it isn't too cold. Plus, I want to start going to the gym again and want to lift again.

I have been really stressed because of my Dad, job, interviews, etc etc.. it was nice to have a break this past weekend! My Dad got released from the hospital on Thursday and came to dinner with us Friday night. I felt bad though because he was coughing the whole time. My parents watched our dog for the weekend, so the cats were more cuddly.

Now it is back to my regular scheduled life. I really like doing fun things on the weekend, but it makes it harder to come back on Monday. (especially because I don't like this job). It makes me really evaluate my life and see what I want to change and fix. I need to keep looking and applying for something else!

    Hope you find something NEW soon! I'm also on the hunt to make a much better, life for myself as well. Mainly find a new job, and of course everything that comes with Sparking. I'm tired of working two jobs, and missing out on all the fun stuff!

Hopefully your dad recovers quickly! Fun weekends are always nice, but you are right it makes it a lot harder to go to work Monday!!

Keep up the hard work!! You'll be back to 100% before you know it.

Busy week!!! Birthday plans, interviews, hospital visits, etc etc etc!!!

Thursday, February 02, 2012

I hope everyone is doing great & has a wonderful week. Make sure you take a moment to be thankful for everything you have. And to be proud of yourself for doing such a great job so far! Keep it up everyone! Take a minute to relax, breathe, and appreciate yourself!
It has been hard tracking my food lately. I have been doing it, but I have not been too focused at all. Yesterday I thought I ate too much because I waited until the end of the day to track. I even had a salad bar and still went under calories. I was just so busy and wasn't focused on eating.

My Dad had to go to the ER on Tuesday. I had to skip a birthday dinner with FH's family because I had to drive my Mom to the hospital. I didn't mind doing that, but I was having such a bad day at work. I was excited to see all of my FH's nieces and nephew again. I had to miss that dinner, and then had to rush to an interview at the Purple Heart at 8pm that night. My Dad just got released from the hospital today. He is feeling better because of the steroids and other medications, but I know he still has problems. He always will because of the smoking. He did too much damage because of it, and he will always have problems. I just worry he will have another heart attack like a few years ago.

I left work early yesterday, and I went to the car show with FH, our roommate and his friend. They changed times on me last minute, and I was still feeling stressed because of my Dad. I am trying not to be stressed, but I just can't help it! I had to sit and cry for a few minutes just to take a breather. Between work stress and his health problems and planning birthday events! AH! When it rains, it POURS! I have been so busy lately, and have barely had a time to sit and relax. I tried to the other night, but I was so upset about my Dad so I made a birthday cake and decorated instead. It took me 2 hours to eat one sandwich because I was so wound up and running around.

The official birthday plans start tonight! I found out yesterday I got an interview for 6pm tonight, and the birthday plans start at 7! haha. So I had to tell my FH those plans since he will have to drive himself. He understands I am trying to get another job! Tomorrow I had to change one of the birthday plans because I got another interview somewhere else for 3:30! I am glad I took off of work because otherwise I would not have been able to do the Friday interview. I really hope something works out with one of those jobs!

I am excited for the birthday plans, but this interview is getting me a little nervous!!

    Sounds like you have been very busy! Sometimes a good cry is a great release for built up stress & you certainly have enough of it! I hope the interview goes well!

Weekend was good, this week is super busy ! Can't wait =)

Monday, January 30, 2012

I weighed myself again and didn't gain or lose. I am happy with that considering I drank some wine at the party on Saturday! Maybe next week I will lose a little bit more!

My weekend was pretty good. My fiance was off Friday & Saturday night. Friday we took a nap after I got home from work from 6pm to 10pm! hahaha. Then we watched some shows and went to bed. Saturday I hung out with my friends in the morning.
That afternoon I went to FH sister's surprise 40th birthday party. His side of the family was there (Aunts and Uncles.) Everyone kept commenting on how much weight I lost. It was nice, but I was blushing at the same time. They kept asking how I did it and said to keep it up. It was nice to hear =) After the party we just hung out and watched more shows.

Yesterday we went to breakfast with his family. His Aunts & Uncles weren't there but 3 of the kids were. The two girls love to hang all over me hahaha. The 6 year old always wants to sit near me. I like that they call me Aunt Kim =) After that FH took a nap and then worked some overtime hours from 6pm-10pm and then had his regular 10pm-6a shift.

I kind of have some good news - well it may be good news. One of the guys FH works with has been switching with him so they both get 3 nights off. They work a double and then get an extra night off. The guy says he wants to do it "permanently". So they would do it every weekend instead of random weekends when they want that night off. If that happened, FH would have Thurs, Fri & Sat night off! =)

This is such a busy week for me. I am so excited & nervous at the same time!
Tonight - dinner at my parents house
Tuesday night - dinner & cake for immediate family @ FH sisters house for her 40th & FH's 30th. then decorate the apartment!
Wed night - Auto show & drop off the dog at my parents for the weekend& make baked goods!
Thurs, Fri, Sat - BIRTHDAY PLANS YAY hahaha

    Holding steady can be a good thing some time!

It does feel good when people notice! And it can be really encouraging to stick with it. Keep it up! (I know you will!)

I know you're super excited for the birthday plans this weekend. I know it'll be great and you'll all have a great time!
