Happy 10/10/10

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Hope that everyone is having a great Sunday! TOday I wore new clothes and got lots of compliments YAY! Have been loving shopping with my niece :) We have a potluck at church tonight, so will try and make wise choices!
This afternoon I have applied on line for 2 jobs at the local hospital so will see what comes of that, at the moment I travel over 100 miles on way to work, I stay in the valley to work my shifts then come home, so would be great to get home more often :) So will see what comes of it as both positions would require me to cross train as they do not have my speciality here.
Well, need to give up the computer for now....

    Good luck with the job hunt. Traveling like that can definitely wear you out especially if you don't get to spend time with your family as much as you would like to. Mary Beth

    That does sound like a long commute! I certainly hope you get a good job closer to home!

    Isn't it fun to wear new clothes and show off the fruits of our hard work?
I'll pray for you to find a good job closer to home - and in the meantime, stamina to continue your current job!

On the right track!

Saturday, October 09, 2010

I weighed myself again this morning, since my return from Disneyland I have lost 3.4 pounds, the 3 I had gained and a little extra! emoticon
I have been tracking my food and have been to curves, also have been drinking my water! YAY! I can do this!
Thanks for all the support

I am back!

Thursday, October 07, 2010

OK, I am back from my vacation to Disneyland along with an extra 3 pounds! emoticon
So I am getting back on track TODAY! I thought that I was doing OK, was not tracking or anything but obviously I was not - I walked and walked but still......so no excuses today is a new day! I also was not drinking much either and I find that that is a big key so glassses up! emoticon
Anyhow, had a great time in Disneyland though it rained all the time! Still rode the rides and had a lot of fun!
emoticon emoticon
Planning on dropping my niece at the store this morning and going to Curves while she is there.....
Here is to a day of careful tracking......

    I don't think three pounds is too bad, considering. :-) You'll knock them back off in no time, I'm sure. :-)

She is on her way!

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

My niece is on her way today from New Zealand! Well actually she already left the town where she lives and is in Auckland waiting to catch her flight to Sydney, she has to be at the airport at 5 am! She will fly to Sydney then on to Los Angeles, then to Salt Lake City before coming on to Phoenix! She will be here our tomorrow - we are all so excited! It is funny that with the time changes that she arrives before she even left!
I have one more night of work and then it is vacation time!

    That is a very very long flight. I wonder why from Los Angeles thru Salt Lake first. There are so many LAX-PHX direct flights. Bet she'll be exhausted.
Have a wonderful time with your niece & give a shout when you're at Disneyland. I'm not far from there, I'll hear you :)

Just checking in :)

Sunday, September 26, 2010

It has been almost a week since I have been on SP :(
I had a busy few nights at work, then busy days off and now I am back at work for the next 4 nights.
We are now on countdown until my niece arrives from New Zealand for her first ever visit! She arrives on Wednesday and will be here for 3 weeks, so I expect that I will be pretty erratic as to when I am on here, but I am trying to stick to my program and exercise!
Next week we got to Disneyland and then she also wants to go to the beach which is funny for someone coming from New Zealand - we have the best west coast beaches there! So we are going to go to the beach before coming back to Arizona!
She also is super excited to be going to Walmart!!! So that is on our list of to do's first!!
I will try to blog about our tripping around as I am able, my two will be on fall break so I will be entertaining 3 teenagers - 17,16 & 14. Though they are both looking forward to reconnecting with their cousin whom they have not seen for 10 years! I am just along for the ride :)
So that is my life for now....

BTW - remember I had ordered "The Spark" on ebay....well it has arrived so I plan on reading that over the next few days :)

    It seems like your life is filled with lots of things to do. I hope you enjoy the visit!

The Spark should be interesting reading. I had a hard time putting it down!

    Have a great couple of weeks! I hope your niece has an awesome time. I agree it is funny that she wants to go to the beach when we have great ones here. I guess it is like when I go overseas and order McDonalds, just wanna make sure it is the same!

    It sounds like you will be enjoying the kids and having fun going to the mentioned places. Have fun. You will be getting some workout by walking.

Keep up the good work.
