TGIF! My week in a nutshell.

Friday, September 17, 2010

I'm so happy it's Friday but I'm on call for work this weekend. I really hope I don't get a lot of call offs. At least it's not a payday weekend.

Stress: My stress this week has been up there. I am a group home manager. My site should have six staff memebers to be fully staffed. As of this week I only have two staff members and they are my third shifters. One is 8 months pregant and the other will need to get surgery on her shoulder soon. I have been making lots and lots of calls to get my shifts covered. If I don't get them covered then I have to work them myself. So, that's been getting to me. I am also behind on two student loans and there's no way I can get them caught up. The holidays are quickly approaching. My youngest son's birthday is 10/30, then halloween, my oldest son's birthday 11/18, Thanksgiving, mine and my fiance's 10 year anniversary 11/26, and then lastly Christmas. Am I going to survive? Better yet, will my wallet survive?

Exercise: I have decided to sign up for the 10 minute challenge. I figure I can do that much. It's a babystep and that's what I need right now. I have tried walking a mile every night but sometimes time gets away from me. I can find 10 minutes!

I made a yummy meatloaf last night, it was great and yes I only ate one serving, though I wanted more. Eating healthier has become a little easier for me. I still feel like it's work counting calories and measuring or weighing serving sizes but it's working so I will continue!

I want to thank everyone in 300+ Team! You guys are great and very supportive!

9/1 336
9/7 334.2
9/13 331.6

I looked back at my food journal and 6/29/10 I weighed 348.9

Have a great weekend!

    Congrats on your weight loss - that seems quite an amount in a fairly short time, but not too huge then I realised it was from the end of June, so nice and steady.

Adding in exercise will help, especially with size.
The 10-minutes-a-day is definitely doable.
If you can't get motivated - follow a course of SP fitness videos. Your 10-minutes is measured for you, and you get the company! And a SP boot camp varies your exercises for you over the course of 7 days - a win/win situation.

Let us know how you're getting on.
And what is the recipe for your meat loaf?
