It's been awhile since I've written in my blog. There have been a lot of awful personal things I've been dealing with and I've really struggled with incorporating my daily exercise in. I know the times that I do that I feel a lot better about things and about myself. I'm not too far away from my first goal, although I think this week will probably be a gain as it is about that time of the month. Although maybe I'll lose a bit since Thursday I have to have my lithotripsy. Not looking forward to that! For those of you who don't know, a lithotripsy is where they use shock waves to break up kidney stones. So I'm sure I'll be in some pain and not eating much. I hope that my recovery time won't be too long and I can get back to actually working out.

And don't think I see any light at the end of the tunnel for awhile. I can't get into it, but I'm having extreme personal problems right now. That, along with having to make a difficult decision whether to take another job, made me drop about 3 pounds. I really wasn't exercising at all for almost two weeks and today was the first time I have. I decided to stay in my job and I am determined to make it better for myself.

Well I sorta cheated and moved my weigh day to today. Well really not cheating, just forgot! I weighed in at 126.8- a little bit of weight loss. What's silly is I was only able to workout twice this week. Had to make up my voice lesson one night, got home late two nights, and the third one was a massive headache. Plus my dumb AC is going again- probably a leak or some other problem, so the guy is supposed to come out on Tuesday. I can't afford these power bills, not to mention this heat is not very fun either.
I've had many personal things going on in my life and it's been a tough journey this week, and last. Issues with my husband and job issues. I'm having second thoughts about the job that I applied for. It's an easy in- back to something I was doing before- but a different department. It's comfortable, but at the same time intimidating with people who may not be too friendly. I'm second guessing things right now. Not sure if I should leave where I am or continue plugging along through the various frustrations I deal with. So in a few minutes I'm going to start writing down the pros and cons for each side to see if this will help me. I was verbally offered the job on Friday, but they won't give me any money because I had a raise in January and I was given a little money to come over to the job I'm at now in March. Seems pretty stupid to me. That's not really my issue, but it doesn't make it very enticing. It would be like that for anything I applied for, unless it was a promotion. I'm feeling terrible because if I say no then I feel like I've wasted everyone's time and I totally don't mean to. My friends keep telling me that I have to think of myself. Do this for me. If it's not right, don't do it. Doesn't make it any easier! So...I'm sure I'll have a couple more sleepless nights until this is over. I haven't had a chance to talk to my boss because he's been on vacation, but I talked to my other boss and a couple of people in another area that my boss is over. I feel like I may have more opportunity later if I just keep plugging along.
Until next time...

Today I weighed in at 127.4 (lost a pound) and lost half an inch in the neck. No other inches lost, but they seem to be remaining the same most of the time. Clothes are still fitting differently though, which is a good thing!
Since my weight loss plan began ultimately in October of 06 (with some stopping points) I have lost a total of 5 pounds, 2 inches in my waist, and 2 inches in my hips.

So this week's weigh in was a slight disappointment. I gained a few ounces to 128.4 I am attributing this to my workout program that has a lot of upper body weights, and I also went to a lunch and had pasta. I know that sounds funny, but it's a little heavier than I normally eat, even though I didn't clean my plate, there were veggies, and it was lite sauce. Oh well....so I didn't even really keep up with my workout program this week. I was going strong Monday and Tuesday, and then I stopped. Not sure what is going on, but I think part of it is getting home late from work. I also started my voice lessons last Sunday and I'm trying to figure out how to get my practicing in after work too. I'm not being successful with this! So I may have to think about doing workouts in the morning before work, which I'm not a huge fan of. Then my AC practically went out, so was waiting on the guy to finally come fix it, and it was just too hot on Thursday. And Friday just didn't happen either. Had a migraine. So...I hate to make excuses- but I am going to have to pick myself up again and start over. I keep track of my workouts on WOWY and today is my "rest" day, but since I've had three days of rest, I'm going to make myself workout today. Have to!
I swapped my workout videos with another girl at work, so I'll have some new things to do, which is cool. Ok, time to get ready for my day as I have a million things to do!
