This Is a Rant...

...And very little health/weight loss will be discussed in this blog.

So things have gotten bad for us. Not end of the world bad, but bad enough that I am not eating well and not working out and not sleeping.

We aren't closing on the house. In fact we lost financing to the house, which means until my dad finds a job, no house even though it is sitting there, done, and empty. So needless to say, I am not in a good mood. I haven't been sleeping, which means my eating is suffering, because lack of sleep means less serotonin, which means more carb cravings.

Then on the class/medical lab program since they not only changed the pre-reqs but require them to be completed before even applying to the program I have been set back a year. I need to really get my butt into gear but in all honesty my people skills are so lacking that I am afraid I will look like a 12 year old when I go talk to them. I am also going to have to get a job, which sucks because again, I don't work well with people.

I get so overwhelmed with this type of thing that I just kinda shut down mentality and physically and I can feel myself shutting down as we speak (or type). Well I am hopefully off to workout a bit (the first time in forever) but first I have to get dressed and air up my tires.

Well that's it and I'll probably write another blog actually about weight loss (or gain, since I gained some weight) later today!

Bye guys!

    Honestly, financial stuff sucks! I'll share my best advice for looking for a job.... i use to work in customer service as a manager... and let me tell you, it made me such a "B!" I hated myself during those times, but it paid the bills. I landed a rad job several years ago working for an autoparts store, doing accouting in a back office under an accountant. I have my own office and can communicate by email and messenging... it's the best thing for people like us that just want to punch people in the face for asking dumb questions. So when you are looking for a job, look under "bookkeeper" or "accounting clerk" or something in an office. Even an Admin Assistant or something back office. You might be suprised at how enjoyable the work can be... hope this helps! Keep your head up and know that we are all pulling for you to overcome your stressful times right now!

    Oh no :( That is awful news! I'm sorry to hear about it all. I know how much you've been looking forward to getting into that house and getting some personal space back.

    I hope that you do get a chance to get a little exercise in, because it may make you feel a little better! With how stressful things are, I don't think anyone is going to get on you about food. I'm just glad to hear that you are still checking in here with us with how everything is going!

    When you go talk to the school, will it be the first time you will see them to talk about the prereq changes? It may help to make a small list of the things you want to say, that way you can stay on topic and not forget anything. I'm not good with people either, and when I have to confront people about things like that, making a short list or taking some notes beforehand helps me out a lot. It's how I got through firing my lawn guys :/

    Good luck with the school. I hope that they'll be able to make some sort of exception for you, or work with you on that. I'm kind of surprised your school isn't like mine was. We were only needed to meet the requirements for the year we started our degree. If they changed things, we were still ok as long as we met the requirements in our program handbook for the year we enrolled. Hopefully, they'll work with you on that. I mean, seriously.. do they expect you to stay in school forever if they just change the requirements every semester? Sounds like they are running a racket!

    You can get through this! I am cheering for you!
