Hello again! How are you??

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Hi everyone! It's has been a LONG time since I've been here but trust me I am a HUGE believer that everything thing happens for a reason (more on that later) and I am ready to talk about things that have occurred in my life. emoticon

First off, I had this ENORMOUS plan to do the Body Revolution and what not and as soon as I started my summer job..... POOF!! EVERYTHING went downhill. The environment was the most negative that I have ever seen my entire life and I was spending my energy trying hard to keep my spirits up and even pushing myself to not quit the job. emoticon But like I mentioned earlier, I believe everything happens for a reason and that negative experience made me realize that my happiness is the most important and you should at least like going to work each and every single day. I started thinking about this long and hard. First, I quit my pizza job because the energy there started to get negative and drama started happening and I completely REFUSED to part of it, so I quit. Second, my school job was awful as well, I had to force a smile on my face day for the kids (WHOM I LOVE TO DEATH!!) but most of my co-workers have broken my trust and work was hostile. I began to look at new openings at other schools just for fun and I applied to the new school not really expecting anything BUT I GOT THE JOB. The principal and the scouting committee was so impressed with me, they cancelled the other interviews and called me the same day to let me know that I got the job!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My new job is AWESOME!! The entire staff is so positive and loving and I LOVE GOING TO WORK EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!! emoticon

Another great things about my new job-

* No soda machine to tempt me ( Principal does not like disposable water bottles, she's BIG on recycling!!)
* Everyone at my new job is around the same age and in the same place in life so it's nice to talk about boyfriends and weekends not lots of negative stuff going on.
*My new teacher I work with is BIG on clean eating so she is helping me gather recipes and stuff
*LOTS of the staff there are big on good, clean, eating and COMPLETELY supportive of my weight loss goals. YAY!

Seriously I can go on and on about how much I love my new job but let's talk about me now! lol

October 1st we will start this again. My friends and I went to NDK and my boyfriend, our friend Anthony, and I decided we need to get serious about our weight but I decided for myself to start on October 1st after seeing other people in their costumes at the convention.

My plan includes-
Limited carbohydrates (Doctor's orders not mine)
Lots of protein and good fats
TONS of water!
Limited sugar intake (Doc's orders)
At least 5 days of cardio, at least 2-3 strength

If I do go out, it is only ONCE a week. I am allowing myself to have a "cheat" day but not really. I have to make sure I eat what I am supposed to for my other meals. For example if I know that I am going out for dinner in the evening, I will still be eating my normal breakfast and normal lunch and if I go to Chillis for dinner, I am still going to have water or unsweetened iced tea and have two sides of brocolii (instead of fries and corn on a cob) with my meal and a side salad.

Coool! Alrighty have a great day!!

Lots of love!

    First and foremost, you are a cutie patootey! I love your background image. Secondly, emoticon on the new job. I get so annoyed when people complain about their life and then do nothing about it and girl you did it! You knew it was bringing you down so you did something about it. Good for you! Lastly, I love your idea of "cheat day." I think most folks think it is a day where they can just go all out and do whatever they want. Not in my opinion. I like the idea of a "cheat meal" once a week where you eat something that is extremely delicious and worth it and don't think about the calories. But it has to be worth it. I had a cheat meal a few weeks ago that was amazing. I went to a nice Italian restaurant and had the bread and oil, a great salad with fresh cheese and bacon, seared salmon and jumbo shrimp and lemon tower cake for desert. It was amazing! I dream about that meal. But I only do that once in a while (like once every two to four weeks). I am wishing you the best because you deserve it.
