Last night was my first night working as a CNA. I will be working NOCs. Pretty much as soon as I heard I got the job and knew I'd have to change my sleeping schedule, I started to work on my sleeping schedule. This means I wasn't tired. Tonight will be night two so we will see if I get tired tonight. Last night, I invested in some curtains. Sometime this week I will have to figure out how to get them up.
Tonight, I was thinking I might want to try tracking calories again. But, since I will be basically awake from now on 6 pm to 10 am and working 10 pm to 6 am, I am not sure how I can input it. Maybe I will just be more attentive about the day I am in. It typically automates it to the right day.
Last night, I ran again. I haven't been running the last few weeks. Just been afraid if I got on the treadmill, I would have detrained so much. In the mean time, I have been lifting, walking and other cardio. Today, I did 2.75 than walked .25 with an incline .5% and a speed from 3.8-4.2. In the last few months, I wouldn't have been able to run at that speed on an incline. I think I just might be improving. I think I am running a 5K in August for the non-profit I used to work for.
Have a wonderful day everyday!

Just yesterday I posted a blog about being down two pounds and weighing in at 213.8. Today, I weighed in at 216. There is no way, Jose, that I gained THREE pounds over night. I know it was too much mac and cheese and salted pretzels.
I am so frustrated and mad. Frustrated at myself for weighing in. I am now measuring my tummy measures the same so I don't know what that dumb scale is talking about. Mad at society for making women feel less worthy because they are overweight.
To add salt to injury, my boyfriend invited me to the movie, Jersey Boys, with his dad, brother, uncle, and family friend. I am the only girl that goes but I always enjoy myself. They are genuinely nice people. This means we will have pizza and popcorn. I have only ate breakfast (got up at 11 am) and I worked out today so I hope it balances out.
Somehow it always seems to happen. I lose two pounds. I get excited and hopeful. Tell a friend. Than, I gain it back. I really need/want to lose this weight.
Just frustrated. And, wanted to share.

It has been two weeks since my committed ending as an Americorp and it feels ! Not only am I happier overall, I am starting to lose weight. With this morning's weigh in, I am down TWO pounds. SP shows one because they round up. Don't they know there is no rounding up in this weight business, lol.
If I can just keep up with losing one pound a week, I could drop this week by next summer! That would be awesome if I could fit into my summer dresses by than! And, maybe even get one or two new ones!
My gym screwed up my automatic payment and took out earlier than should have. Because of this, I got a free personal training session. I had him teach me TRX and later, I asked to measure me. 2012 is the last time I put measurements in and it so happen to me when I was at goal. I haven't entered measurements since so now I have my current measurements and goal measurements.
With this new job (which I start floor training on Friday), I will have a little extra money and thinking of investing in some personal training sessions for myself. I find I actually do like him as a trainer. (And, I am picky!)
By the way, I have 8 workouts done this month. (I think I counted a couple from June last time.) I am trying to do 3 days of workouts and 1 day off so I can eventually build up to 4 days on, 1 day off. Today, I am supposed to workout but we did power training today so I took in lots and lots of information and have a headache/nausea. Thinking of getting out and in the nice !
