Quick blog!

I got a prescription for Chantix today! I won't be able to get it filled until I get my income tax return, but at least I have it! I also got a card with a code on it so I can call 1-800-NOBUTTS and get the patch! Yay! There is hope for me yet:)

I spent all day at the clinic, didn't get home until 2 pm, after working all night, so I ended up over sleeping and was an hour late for work:(
I called my boss and he was really great about me being late. This is the first time I have ever been late, so he was very reasonable about it. I really hate being late though!

    I know how you feel! I always hated being late too. I was the one that was always there half an hour early -- just to get "settled in" before my day started!

GOOD FOR YOU getting the Chantix! We have a program at our local hospital that PROVIDES the Chantix FREE as long as you take their smoking cessation classes. I think it's sponsored through the state -- but it MIGHT be federal. You should look into that! emoticon

Lots of exercise today!

Friday, February 11, 2011

Today I was going to have a leisurely day-or so I thought! I decided to take the bus to the store. A short little trip that would be fun, the store is only about a couple of miles down the road. Well, I got on the bus and made it to the store just fine, then I ended buying more than I had planned, and ended up with my backpack full of fresh vegetables and fruit plus two bags of groceries I would have to carry, plus I found out it cost $2.50 every time you get on the bus, so it was $5.00 to go there and come back! When I got off the bus it was practically in front of the store, but....when I came out of the store and looked for the bus stop going back the other way, I couldn't see one anywhere! I walked up the street and around the corner, and still no bus stop in sight! A young man pointed out where there was one down the other street so I walked over there only to find out it was going the opposite way of where I wanted. So then I walked back to the store, across the street, and started walking in the direction of home. Finally, I saw the bus stop, but it was still a ways away! I made it there, but my back was drenched in sweat from the weight of the vegetables in it and the sun was shining bright the whole time! I did make home ok, but boy am I tired! Which is a good thing, because I have to work from 10pm-6am again, and this time I think I will be able to take a good long nap before I go to work! So all in all it turned out for the best! Good exercise and a good nap in a few minutes!

    I did the same thing many years ago. I decided to go shopping taking the bus because my 3 year old wanted to ride a bus.
While shopping I forgot that I did not bring my car and had a cart full of groceries---amazing enough we got it all on the buss and the buss stopped not too far from my home and the older children came and helped us carry the bags home.

LOL---thanks for a fun memory!!!

It takes a while to get used to the buss--if you need help with a schedule they are so kind on the telephone--they help any way that they can. emoticon emoticon

    LOL! The only thing that would have made it better is if it was PLANNED. And enjoyable! However... we take exercise where we can GET it - right? Hope you had a GOOD nap! emoticon

    You got in your exercise whether you planned to or not. LOL That's the way I feel about the 28 stairs I have to climb to get from where my washer and dryer is to the bedrooms upstairs. I make those trips count. Hope by the time you see this you will have had some good sleep. I know I will tonight!

    Sounds like a little more than leisurely to me. Remember to take your list next time. LOL

HUGS

Don't work too hard tonight.

Riding the bus!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I rode the bus to the library today to pick up the book I requested. It was really interesting and took up most of the day, but I made a special friend at the bus stop. He is a little bit mentally challenged and said I was "a very nice lady". I asked him if he knew what time the bus was supposed to be there and he said "oh, about this time everyday". I coughed and he asked me if I was a smoker, I said yes and he said that's why I have that smoker's cough! It was very cute. On my way back home, I saw him again and we talked for a minute. He really made my day!

I got a lot of walking in and then came home and took a nap-had to live up to my nickname!

I cooked boneless, skinless, chicken breast, with chicken gravy and rice, and mixed, steamed vegetables for dinner. I had cream of wheat and a glass of juice for breakfast. Right next to library is taco bell and I went in thinking I was going to order the 5-layer burrito and a pepsi, but the calories were posted right on the menu board 540-700! So, I got the crunchy taco and a small pepsi. Did I really get the small pepsi? Yes, I did! I am feeling pretty good about my choices today!

I even cleaned the house real good before I left and finished enrolling in school. So, all and all I had a pretty good day! Oh and I forgot to mention that I took cashews and raisins for a snack while I was on the bus! Another good choice I made today!

    That's cool they had the calories posted! I know they are proposing legislation to have all restaurants do that, I think it would be great!

Jumping rope!

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

I jumped rope for 50 jumps, but not all at once. I set my alarm for 15 minutes, then jumped rope 10 times, then walked to the end of our parking lot and back, then jumped 10 more, then walked, for 15 minutes straight! I was very proud of myself, I didn't think I could do it:)

I finished up enrolling in college and I will start again on the 15th of February. I think I will enjoy it because I love school! It gives something to do and keeps my mind busy. I probably won't be spending as much time on SP as I do now, but I will still plan on exercising and logging in my food everyday, because being in school for the past couple of years is how I gained all this extra weight in the first place!

  Sounds like a lot of fun! I loved jumping rope in the past! Should be fun to try again!

Have a good day, my dear friend!

    Sue- jumping rope is one of the best. Thanks for the reminder. I don't know where I put my rope; gonna have to find it.

Back to school already? emoticon I love school too, although I haven't been back in awhile. I still do all my ceu workshops for my license. The "learning" environment is something I really enjoy...

Just don't forget to check on us even when you are super busy; and let us know if we can be helpful!

    That's great about you jumping rope and walking to the timer. I set the timer cleaning house. I move fast trying to see how much I can do in a certain amount of time. I work up a sweat running up and down the stairs, vacuuming, etc. I'm proud of you, too!

Glad you are able to continue your education. I am not on SP as much either now that I'm working full time. Not any down time there. I am managing an adult day care or rather I'm learning the ropes. I will be on my own very soon. I still exercise and log my food everyday, too.

I'll stay in touch with you.

Going back to school!

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

I spent all day enrolling in school. I had my official graduation ceremony 3 days ago for my AA degree, but I am ready to work on my BA degree now! I will start on Feb. 15th. Whew! I am a little nervous, a bachelors is going to be tougher than an associates, but I really enjoyed school and I am a little excited about starting again:)
Something in the wheel of my car broke on my way home today. I sure hope it isn't anything serious, but it sure sounds awful! My son is going to check out when he gets home from work. Thank God it broke only about a half mile from home so I didn't get stranded somewhere! I was able to drive it the rest of the way home.
I talked to my boss today and he said if I could just hang in there for the next six weeks that he promises that all the schedules are going to change and I won't have to work the all 3 all nighters! Yay! I may still have one all nighter, but one is okay, it's just that 3 is either not enough or too many, because if I had 5 nights, I would just switch my days and nights around, but having only 3 just throw everything off for those nights, then I go back to normal for 4 days. So I told him that I can hang in there as long as I know that there is an end in sight:)
I tried jump roping, and it isn't as easy as I remember it! I ended up tangled up in the rope and jumping too soon.lol But...I'm gonna keep trying!

    You are so ambitious! Good for you going back to school. Hope your son can figure out the car problem and is nothing serious. Yay! on the night schedule end in sight. Hope it all works so you will be genuinely happy with the outcome.

And the jumping rope... keep trying, it is bound to get better.
