Starting Anew...again

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Well a lot has happened since I last logged onto here. I have a new part time job at Barnes & Noble now. My hours were supposed to go down after the holidays but they are staying pretty steady at around 25+ hours per week. I have almost no time off, my next day off is February 2nd. I have been finding it hard to stay on track because I have little to no energy after I work. At my Barnes and Noble job I end up working 7 to 8 hour shifts which means I only get one 15 minute break and a 30 minute lunch the lunch is deducted from my 8 hour shift so I really work 7.5 hours. I would get another 15 minute break when I am scheduled for 8.5 hours). My breaks are not spread out very well and I tend to be at the cash register for 3+ hours straight with no break at the end of my shift. As you can imagine I tend to be tired and sometimes even starved because I am not usually very hungry during my scheduled breaks. I don't always make the best choices lately either because of this. I want to keep losing and I have been a pound or two but no where near what I was losing when I kept on my track and was exercising regularly. I decided today that I am going to fit in my exercise when I can again. I am going to make plans during my down time and execute them on my days I don't have a long work day. I am determined to be a size 18 by my birthday in April this year! I have not been a size 18 in years and I think it would be a great gift to myself. This site has helped me so much losing my first 30 lbs last year and so here I am again to keep up my losing streak in this new year!

    Thank you both very much! I appreciate the support you both are giving me. :)

@Terry: I do wonder sometimes if I am just making excuses and I am going to do my best to stop making those excuses. Sometimes I feel like I need someone to kick my butt into gear during those excuse filled times. So maybe we can both help each other and hold each other accountable during those times. :)

    I would like to be supportive of you. Honestly, I understand your issues. The question I would ask myself. "Am I making excuses for the lack of commitment". This is just for me. I would love it if you would help to hold me accountable. Good luck getting back on track. I really am here to help.
