This has been a really messed up month...Looking forward to Aug

Friday, August 01, 2014

As most of you know I have had several medical issues going on but I chose to go back to work. I have a new supervisor (my old supervisor left while I was on medical leave) and she is a micromanager. Not only does she come by my desk several times a day to see what I am working on she reminds me daily how many tardies or absences I have accrued. Yesterday she threatened to terminate my employment all because the HR dept has not made up their mind yet if they are going to approve my intermittent absences for calling in or leaving early due to pain.

Not only am I dealing with the witch at work, but I am having my own problems out side of work. I live in Arizona and during the summer months we have monsoon season, earlier this month I lost my Spark Tracker during one of the many dust storms that we receive during this season. Then I lost my internet due to some technical issue with my provider (no fault of my own) which kept me from accessing SP and uploading my food and exercise, then last week my DVD player started acting up. I uploaded the app for my smart phone but it seems my smart phone is not to smart and it blew up yesterday. Oh how 'we' have become dependant on our internet and cell phones. I felt lost without them because I couldn't get my virtual hugs and my pats on the back, or even the 'I know you can do this' from my SP friends.

I set goals for myself for the month of July and when my internet went down I lost one of my goals, I was unable to track everything. I am a emotional eater and the more my supervisor gets on my case I more I want to eat while I am at work. I am trying really hard to keep my eating to healthy things but there have been a few times that I just said screw it and pigged out on sweets. most of my exercise that I do in the morning before work or on DVD so again I feel lost.

I really don't like that lost feeling, I feel like something is against me succeeding in losing weight and is really pushing against me.

I am so glad that August is around the corner, I will prevail and not let anything get in my way. I will keep tracking, exercising, and keeping most of my snacking to healthy food within the portion suggested.

I just want to say GOODBYE JULY, HELLO AUGUST!!

It's going to be a GREAT rest of the year.

    You can do this - just remember that all you have to do is make it through the day. I'm sorry about your work environment - that can add so much stress when an employer acts that way. Hoping things get better! emoticon
