Fanfiction and Gaming

Sunday, July 07, 2013

I have had a really interesting 3 days off. This week was double XP weekend in SWTOR (STar Wars: The Old Republic) so I knew a lot of my time would be spent leveling my character up with my hubby. However, on Wednesday I got home from work at about 1030, then took a 2 hour nap. On Thursday, I woke up at like 2am, took another nap at 11 then again at like 2pm. I couldn't stay awake most of the day, the same thing happened on Friday but instead of napping a few times, I just slept from 330 pm to 8pm that night, then went back to bed at 11. I don't know why my sleep schedule has been crazy. Even last night I woke up at 2am which is bad because I have to be at work all day today.

I've had some personal stress issues coming up with my life which could cause some of the problems. On a side note, I've been more into fanfiction as of lately. It's kind of crazy. I've noticed when I find a really good fanfiction story I tend to want to read as many stories as I can on the couple that was "shipped". This last few weeks, that couple has been Rachel and Jesse St. James from Glee.

I want to start writing again. I used to write stories all the time. However, life, gaming and other such things have really gotten in my way. I'm scared to go back to writing, that it, along with most of the stuff I used to enjoy, just seem like a waste of time nowadays. I need to start building a stronger support base around me. I feel that is one area where I am lacking. What do I want out of my life? Those tough questions seem to be plaquing me lately.

Sorry this blog is kind of a downer today. It's been that sort of week for me all week. Just need to really figure out where my life is headed. I'm 31, you'd think I'd have some idea by now.

In the words of John Lennon, "You may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one". At what point do you have to give up being a dreamer? Or how can you push yourself to fulfill your dreams?

    I'm currently reading a book by this author. It's helping me to find my way, not with food but with life. Take the a look at the webpage and see if it might suit you.

There are also a few videos on YouTube, but if you can find the very latest (about a week ago) it is really enlightening.

Keep pushing until it all becomes clear.

    Hi, just a quick note of encouragement. I can really relate to so much of what you wrote today and I've got a good 15 or so years on ya...

I think it is easy to get overwhelmed by the tough questions. Maybe take one question at a time, one problem at a time...really, one ANYTHING at a time. It is easier to see progress and more manageable to deal with when we take smaller "bites" of life.

Good luck! emoticon

Back to the Gym

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Well it's been about two if not 2.5 months since I've been to the gym. I was going regularly, 3 times a week for at least strength training, then missed a week because my work schedule went crazy. That week turned into two and so on and so on. However, last night I came home from work. I ate my subway sandwich and watched some Glee. I went to bed about 8pm, and woke up at 3am this morning and went to the gym before work. My husband and I did a few ab crunches, tossed the medicine ball and then did some vertical rows and that was about it. We then went to the pool for 30 minutes and walked laps. It was a great way to start the day and was awesome knowing how much I had already gotten done and my day hadn't really even started yet. We are going to start making this a Tuesday routine every week. Plus it was nice that the gym was empty as well.

Afterwards, we did go to Jack in the Box but I have learned as long as I watch my calories every day, i can be a little more "crazy" with the food I eat. Today has been a lot of going out to eat but it's been crazy at work as well. Tonight is Cheese Enchiladas that I found on sparkrecipes.com. We've had them before and they are very yummy.

Out of the 360's

Monday, July 01, 2013

emoticon I weighed in this morning for my weekly weigh in and I'm down another 1.8 pounds. While this alone is exciting, the best part is it puts me at 358.2 so I'm out of the 360's. It's amazing to thing a few years ago I weighed over 400 pounds and I'm slowly losing all the weight. It was a great way to start the morning.

Bagels and New Work Schedule

Sunday, June 30, 2013

This week I switch back to days at work. The way it goes is we do 3 month rotations between days and nights. I am 100% a night owl. i just function better at night. But its time for days again. This week my sleep has been horrible but overall I've managed to maintain a pretty good food habit. I haven't ate the healthiest food but I've been doing pretty good on calories. Well, we will see when I weigh in tomorrow morning.

One of our co-workers today brought in bagels and I had to partake. I've been really good about not really eating bagels but I just had my first "everything" bagel and it's really good.

  Those flying saucers with wholes full of carbs are better toasted and with cream cheese on top, aren't they? Someone told me once that bagels weren't as fattening as bread, I think they pulled my leg, what do you think?
Anyhow,kuddos, keep it up

I love Wendys. I like that I can get a spicy chicken sandwich and a medium fry for about 900 calories. It's a lot but it feels me up and is usually a treat I give myself about once a week. However, I started to pay attention to the carbs today and realized that not only are the fries about 50 carbs but so is the sandwich. I think it's about time to switch to something else. Myabe still go get the fries (they are my favorite part), then do a home made chicken sandwich. It's time to start doing some more research and find something that works for me.

Other than that, I've got a busy Thursday. Since I get off work at Midnight on Wednesday night, I have to try to stay up as late as I can on Thursday. Well now that means I get to go get my tire repaired. I walked outside of work yesterday and it was completely flat. I also need to get new brake pads so we can replace my brake pads this week.

About three weeks and I get to go on vacation. I'm excited and nervous!

    I may try it. I also think this weekend I'm going to try to re-create the Berry Almond Chicken Salad at home.

    Would switching to a wrap help?
