Busy Time

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

I am now back home, I had 4 nightshifts and they were all busy, one of those nights I was the charge nurse and I was busy the whole night! I love nights like that!
I tried really hard to keep on track with my eating but the drinking was the problem. I was please when I weighed this morning - I had lost 2 pounds over the week! I managed to get to Curves while I was gone too! I plan on going again today, probably this afternoon when it is warmer! Have laundry etc to catch up on this morning! While I was gone my husband had to go to Texas to pick up a friends truck on our trailer, so my kids were staying with other people, so our cat is crying out for attention today!
While I was gone, 2 of my friends had a crisis so I would appreciate prayers for them both. One of my friends is 22 weeks pregnant and my son was staying with her when she started having problems with her BP and she has a cardiac condition, so he went to stay with another friend, but she would appreciate prayers for her pregnancy as well as her health, she is doing better now and has an ultrasound and ECHO scheduled for Monday. My other friend's mother has pancreatic cancer and became unresponsive over the weekend and was admitted to the hospital by ambulance, seems that she had had a heart attack, has a blood clot in her lung, has pneumonia and is septic from a urine infection! Last night they told my friend that she is in the end stages, so would appreciate prayers for them too! She now just wants to take her mother home!
I am so glad to work with a fantastic group of nurses and with a great manager who have all come around my friend and are donating PTO so that she can stay home with her mom!
On a brighter note! I am thrilled that today I have been named the 50 Pound Challenge Team's "TEAM FAMILY MEMBER OF THE DAY!" for November 23rd. I told my husband that I am to be treated as the queen today and he said that is everyday!
Thanks for all your support and encouragement!
Christine

Back to work!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

I hope that this does not post twice! I had posted it, but it ended up somewhere in cyberspace! I am all packed and ready to head back to work. I am working the next 4 nights and am going to try REALLY hard to keep to my plan! I even have my walking shoes with me! I will try to check in as able during the night - if my wee patients let me! I have my food journal with me so that I can keep track of my food even if I cannot get online! Hoping for a favorable weigh in when I get home......

    It sounds like you have a good plan. Of course, I suspect most nurses walk a lot anyway!

Weight Loss Journals

Wednesday, November 17, 2010


As part of my winter countdown challenge, today we had to read a motivational article and so here is mine.....
It was awesome about journalling your weight loss journey! It has motivated me to do this, I journal anyway so I am going to start a weight loss journal. In this article the lady had made a scrapbook, but I will be doing mine on the computer with a flash drive, then I can add photos as well as journal wherever I am! And I can keep adding to it,
Thanks for the motivation! If you are interested in journalling, check this article out!

    I journal just about everyday about what's going on in my life and it also helps relieve a lot of emotions. Keep up the good work.

    Hi!! I journal, perhaps somewhat of a different nature, but I do. I have to say that I really love it!! I started a separate weight loss journal, but things oftentimes get lost in the shuffle!! Thx for the reminder!!

Take care & good luck on your weight loss journey!!

Can't Spell!

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

OK for those on the lemon team I cannot spell TURKEY! I accomplished the 'T' today - just went to Curves for 40mins and feel great! I had lost my motivation but I have now found it again! It helped that I was meeting someone there, once I got there it was great! I am also very excited to hear that my Curves is going to be having zumba come! They are pulling up the carpet on Saturday to make the floors suitable for zumba too! I live in a town of 15,000 and I hear my SP and work friends talk about zumba so I am excited to be getting the opportunity to try it too! Even the older ladies at curves are talking about it!! YAY!
On the TURKEY challenge....I have now caught up, does reading "the spark" count as my motivational read? I am still reading it! Have been better with my water and I am having regular visits to the bathroom too!
And I just found out that I do not have to go to work tonight! I had signed up as an extra but I really wanted to go to AWANA at church as well as Bible Study tonight and now I get to do that and be free to go to the Ladies Bible Study tomorrow morning! We are doing an awesome study on Esther by Beth Moore. Maybe I will even make it ti Curves again tomorrow too!

Enjoying my days off

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

I have been enjoying being home with the family, I have had 5 nights off YAY! Yesterday had to go to a one day conference which was good. Have been shredding papers today and catching up on all my papers that are laying around.
I am also starting to journal my food and exercise, thanks to FATGIRLSLIMMM, I got a food and exercise journal from amazon.com - thanks Elyse for your advice :)
I started my journal yesterday and love my journal!
I bought my thanksgiving turkey today!

    We all need down time...both physically and mentally...to be able to truly enjoy what we have. Enjoy it while you can!

Way to go! Starting to journal food is a great way to really track what you are eating. I love using the nutrition tracker here on SP, but the down side for me is that I can only do it at my desk at home, so if I'm out and about, I have to remember exactly what I've eaten and track it after I get home (or in the morning if I get home too late at night).

Blessings!

    Family time is sooo precious. Enjoy your days off. Too few and far between huh? I am glad you are getting caught up on stuff! It seems I am always behind in that category! I got my turkey too! I think we are celebrating Friday since my brother is a firefighter and has to work Thanksgiving day! More time to watch the parades I guess!
Hugs,
