10 pounds one month-My goal

Monday, April 27, 2009

When I first started losing weight it seemed so easy! I was determined to change my lifestyle, and I did! I was determined to be consistent in my workouts and I was!

Today I had crazy weird cravings out of the blue (maybe related to monthly happenings), and I indulged them. I'm not crying over the chocolate trail mix, candy, nachos, chips, and soda... (except for my tummy hurting)... I'm just reconfirming that this is not how I want to eat.

By my next birthday - June 30th - I want to lose 10 pounds. I used to lose weight at that rate when I first started. And in order to do that now, I need to be serious about tracking my foods, eating the right amounts, and getting those workouts in.

This new goal couldn't come at a better time; my Census job is done, I need to look for work, I'm scared about the future, submitting resumes; lots of stress, and a great time to refocus on changing the things I CAN change: those habits.

(My husband keeps saying how skinny I'm getting... I confess that even in the comparison picture from my last blog I BARELY SEE A DIFFERENCE. I know it's my eyes that I can't trust. But I made huge strides today by wearing my "W" skinny shirt that shows my arms at the Park. I'll upload pics later.)

    Best of Luck! You can absolutely do it.

I get the not seeing it thing. I was watching Biggest Loser last night and they were showing them before and after and it was amazing. Watching them each week I'd forgotten how much they had changed. I haven't been seeing the change in myself lately and so I decided to go to the mirror and have a closer look. And wow, I really am a different person. Sometimes it takes an extra look to see.

You are looking fantastic and even when you don't see it, the rest of us do.

Good luck on the job front to. Keep your head up and keep moving forward and things will work out.

    Hey Joce, kudos for wearing your skinny shirt to the park. You look great, but sometimes it just a while for our mind to catch up with our bodies. And your goal is awesome, hopefully it will help you kick it into gear. The weight doesn't come off as it once used to and some days we just don't feel like working any harder.

    Jocelyn, I know you can do it. You seem to have great determination and energy. I know sometimes the month to month changes are not that noticeable...but it all adds up. Any weight loss is a step in the right direction (I have to remind myself of that often). I bet the next 20 pounds makes even more of an impact the last 20 did. It really did for me.

Best of luck on the job search. Maybe you will end up with a better job than you had. Life works like that sometimes.

    Hey Joce,
That is a great goal and I am sure you will accomplish it with no problem. Your weight loss is truely amazing. Keep up the hardwork and dedication. Totally know about making bad food choices. I do not burn 4000 calories a week. I need to type in what I really burn from my watch. I burn about 300-400 a workout.

Have a healthy day,
Shannnon

  You are doing great! I love seeing your photos -- there is a definite change in the before and afters!

You may have addressed this question before but is your skin shrinking with your body? Does that make sense? LOL I ask because you look..proportionate in your weight loss - as if it's coming off evenly all over and not in spots -- know what I am trying to say here? haha my belly is starting to sag (not that it didn't before but it seemed to be an overall 'roll' before haha) and so are my underarms but yours look great! emoticon

She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was as nervous as she could be
She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was afraid that somebody would see
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more

She was afraid to come out in the open
And so a blanket around she wore
She was afraid to come out in the open
And so she sat bundled up on the shore
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the blanket she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we'll tell you more

Now she's afraid to come out of the water
And I wonder what she's gonna do
Now she's afraid to come out of the water
And the poor little girl's turning blue
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the water she wanted to stay
(From the locker to the blanket)
(From the blanket to the shore)
(From the shore to the water)
Yes, there isn't any more...but look at WOLFKITTY, a hottie she will be for ever more!!! Woohoo!!!!

101 Degrees & Walking

Monday, April 20, 2009

Oh goodness!

My husband called me in a panic today. I had been working for about 6 HOURS (walking door to door for the Census) when he asked if I was okay. Apparently the high was 101 degrees today in my town. Um, yeah, maybe that explains why I went through over a gallon of water in a few hours, and why it was so hot.

Still walked 9 miles today so far. I'm going to keep the pedometer on so that I can see my total for the day. Whew!! Luckily I don't have to do any more today.

I'm torn between wanting more hours (especially in light of not being paid by UI) and being so over the assignment. Maybe the next leg of this "adventure" will be better.

Today I saw a passed out guy sleeping on the sidewalk. (I hope he wasn't dead.) Yay.. Actually, I'll have to write a whole blog about all the strange things I've seen and felt in the past 3 weeks.

Desperately Job Seeking

Saturday, April 18, 2009

((Edited))

I just got a notice in the mail from the EDD explaining that I have a phone interview the DAY OF the convention. I'm going to have to reschedule it (they say they're calling on my HOME phone not my cell phone), but they make it clear that the "reason for rescheduling could affect your unemployment benefits".

emoticon emoticon emoticon

I was supposed to receive a check this week (for the previous 2 weeks) and it hasn't come. I've only received this notice about the May 2nd phone call. I'm worried that means that they won't pay me again until after the phone call.

emoticon

The reduced pay that I get from Unemployment is just barely enough to cover my rent and basic living utilities. I just had to pay $750 for Federal taxes, which is what I was using to build a backup rent fund- to cover something exactly like this. We don't really have any other resources. The future is uncertain, and the anxiety is killing my stomach. I'm irritable and (apparently) unpleasant to be around since everything I say is tinged (what appears to be) anger.

I'm so scared!

SINDLICIOUS 4/20/2009 3:31PM

    I know you are darlin'! But you will manage! Since your going to the convention you can say it's a possible job opportunity at this convention and maybe they could call you on your cell phone instead of on your home phone. That way you get to go to the convention AND you can do the phone interview.

And if you NEED incentive ... all you have to do at the convention is ASK several people if they are hiring or if their company has any openings for someone with your qualifications. That way you wouldn't be lying, you are seeking employment in a convention type environment!

Things WILL get better for you sweetie, and I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers until such time as they DO turn around for you! Good luck, STAY POSITIVE!

    My husband had the same thing. They gave him the 2 hour window and called exactly at 8am for an 8-10 time frame. Definitely don't change or cancel. Just bring your cell phone and when they call find a quiet place. It is not worth skipping the convention or changing the interview. UGH. I am sorry you are going thru this! emoticon

    they did the same thing to me to start my benefits. Had a question about my severance pay. and they delayed paying me into total for a month and a half. i think they extended the benefit period now since so many of us are out of work, hopefully that is your case. good luck to you! can you do the phone interview on a cell phone? they gave me an hour window for mine. and at least you could keep the day positive. just a thought...

SPARKLINGVIOLET 4/18/2009 3:49PM

    Ohhh I TOTALLY know how you feel! Pretty much the same thing happened to me. It sucks! Ultimately, I got completely cut off from unemployment. My suggestion is to not reschedule. Because when you do, it take soooo long for them to set up another appointment. Also, during the time you are waiting to be phone interviewed, they don't pay you--at all! If after the phone interview they feel that you are still qualified, then they BACK PAY YOU (which still takes forever). I don't know if you already got the paper in the mail saying EXACTLY the time they are supposed to call you but I remember mine was w/in a 2 hr time frame. So like, they were set to call from 10-12pm. They called at 11:59 (no joke). So if I were you, I wouldn't reschedule and just carry your phone with you during the convention. It'll take about 15 minutes to talk to them and seriously, 15 miutes stepping away from the convention is so worth keeping your unemployment.

Anyway, I hope things work out for you...cause like I said, they didn't for me and it seriously sucks!

Taxes!

Wednesday, April 15, 2009


What?!

I can't believe I forgot to do them. I spent today working on the tax forms. My husband is self employed so that makes it a little bit tougher. I think it's worked out now, but I still need to copy (or type) all of the numbers over onto a fresh form so that they're printed neatly.

And I thought my procrastination days were behind me! Sometimes things like this sneak up on me though. Wish we didn't have to pay! Eeg. :S I hope everyone else is done with their taxes.

    You know it ... no matter how early I start, I NEVER get them in the mail until the very last day. I'm self-employed too, and I can't imagine having to figure it all out in one night's time - your husband must keep better records than I! Sadly I had to pay out another 4 thousand - and that's after paying estimated taxes all year, ugh ... SO not fair! That government of ours better make some strides this year!!!!

    HEHE I like that picture with THAT caption below it. :D It's cute. Anyway -- I did our taxes SO EARLY I'm so proud of myself. I'm queen procrastination. I get good at not procrastinating for a while, and then I let some things slide for a while, and then get all caught up again. It's a little cycle, but I like to think the sliding cycle is at least shorter than it used to be and I don't let everything slide at the same time. ;) HAHAA

    I owed for state for the first time in years. At least I paid it and it's finally off my budget "to do" list! Happy tax day.

    My husband decided to call last week and see what was keeping the tax people picked the phone up and notices the tax work on the shelf. He needed to turn them in to her before she could do them. so hung up and took them down.
They are either in or extended.

    Actually, I did my taxes back in Feb. But then got to the end and realized I OWED money so decided to put it off until the very end! I will be sending them in today.

    you're not alone. I can't say that I've forgot them, but it always sneaks up on me and I file the extension to get a week and then take a MONTH or more..

I can't explain why I enjoy the numbers part (I'm a geek!) but HATE taxes...

Good job - especially doing them the pure paper way... I use software and STILL....

    My boyfriend was doing his until about 10 last night, so you're not alone!! Glad you got them done and out of the way though - doesn't it feel good to be done for another year?
