Rock Bottom?

Monday, March 05, 2012

Sooo... 60 days until graduation. In July, I will take my NCLEX and be a Nurse. I'm going back for my bachelor's degree in September. I'm the outgoing Student Nurse President for my college, incoming Michigan Nursing Students' Asssociation - Image and Breakthrough Director. I have a ten year old travel hockey player, he's going to be a Pee Wee this Spring. He's an amazing little guy. I'm finally getting child support, (a day late, and always a dollar short, but hey... better than nothing...), and he is starting to see his dad on a more regular basis (the jury is still out on that one too, but for now, Brian is happy about it...). I also met the guy of my dreams in October, he has been so supportive and patient, I am feeling really happy for the first time in a long time, it feels like things are finally coming together... sooo... what's missing... right?

I am trying to shake this BODY! It seems like with all of the cafeteria food and meals on the go, I'm having a hard time sticking to my daily calories. When I do, I feel like I'm STARVING! What's the answer? I'm hoping that Spark can get me back on track. I'm never around a computer anymore, at least not one that Big Brother doesn't have on lockdown... so I downloaded the SparkPeople app for my droid phone... this morning I plugged my calories into my intake diary before I even got my breakfast from the drive-thru window! Ideally, I think that it'd be better to skip the drive-thru window... I know that it would be healthier to eat the same exact food if I made it at home, but I just feel like I don't have the time and money...

Maybe there are some better ideas out there for meals on the go, but for now, I'm back to my trainer 3x a week, running with my sister twice a week, and trying to get in some type of exercise every day. It's harder than it seems and honestly, I feel like someone pulled my energy plug and it drained out of my foot or something... but one thing is for sure, looking back at my posts from last year, I would say that things are looking up! It did take hitting rock bottom for me to realize that things had to change in my life, and now that that is under control, hopefully I can start making other changes now, like my diet and exercise... it's time to stop thinking about rebuilding what I had already ruined, and to start thinking on what is going to come now that everything is repaired...

Good things are on their way for me... and today... it feels ONEderful! :) I can't wait to go running tonight!
