PUNKY100's SparkPeople Blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal.asp?id=PUNKY100 PUNKY100's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community SparkPeople.com http://assets2.sparkpeople.com/assets/nav/logo_spark.gif http://www.sparkpeople.com/ Dreams...why subconcious, why?!?!? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5735929 So my dreams are usually very vivid and when I do dream, about 90% of the time I can remember them. Sometimes they are very strange and you could make it into a movie script (like one I had recently about Germany winning a war and putting everyone on this huge cruise ship and brainwashing them). <BR> <BR> Last night though, I had a couple of dreams that were 'meh'. One involved two guys from middle school. The one guy I had a crush on for YEARS, our dads worked together so I would see him... Thu, 10 Jul 2014 09:38:50 EST Almost A Year Part 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5721391 Hiiii again!! This blog will be much more upbeat than the last one, it's all about the future!!! <BR> <BR> As for my housing situation, I will be moving into a new place with my sister. She needs to get out of the ghetto, and I need to get away from my roommate, so we are planning on moving in together this fall. Her lease goes until November, and I'm on a month-to-month, so I have to wait for her. We are also moving super close to her work (we have it narrowed down to 2 places) which me... Thu, 19 Jun 2014 12:21:20 EST Almost A Year Part 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5719921 So I find myself ahead at work today and in an ok mood, so I can write this blog. Just a warning, this will be heavily complaining about my roommate. If you don't want to read a blog about a horrible roommate, then you can skip this one. I promise you won't miss out on anything. Oh and just so you don't, I have Windows 7 at work now!!!! The rest of my team got upgraded and here I was sitting on XP. Talked to the right person on Friday, got it straightened out, and here I am! I was helpi... Tue, 17 Jun 2014 13:59:31 EST Almost A Year Part 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5718031 Yes, it has been almost a year since I was here. I am back to my previous starting weight, but that doesn't have me down. I didn't grow back out of Lane Bryant, so that is a success in my book haha. <BR> <BR> So anyway, my memory as to exact events is horrible, so I can't detail the last year. But I can let you know what has happened lately. <BR> <BR> The biggest thing is that I got a bunch of money back from my taxes this year. I bought a Magnetrainer, which is a little pedal machine t... Sat, 14 Jun 2014 19:26:38 EST BLOG! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5407531 Ugh, you guys...I'm feeling SO lazy today. I'm just going to write you a short little blog to let you all know what has been going on! <BR> <BR> Last week I had jury duty! It only took 3 days for us to be finished. It was a drug conspiracy case, apparently there was a coke dealing thing going on and it overlapped from Minneapolis to Wisconsin. We convicted the guy, but we won't know sentencing for a couple of months (the judge does that). I got to be the foreperson, which was really coo... Mon, 1 Jul 2013 14:10:16 EST Day 8 Recap! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5380270 So just over a week, and I'm still doing pretty well! Taking it day by day and week by week, I'm not really even focused on a goal right now, I'm just doing the best I can with every meal and every workout. <BR> <BR> Last night when I got home, there was definitely a bit of a storm on the way, so I decided not to risk it and do a WATP DVD instead. Holy sweet baby Jesus I could tell in like 10 mins I hadn't done one of those workouts in a while. You know how when you always do the same wor... Thu, 6 Jun 2013 11:31:46 EST Day 7 Recap! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5379271 Blargh...it was imminent I guess. My headset broke last night. It was a behind the head one, and the bar that goes across the back of your head cracked. So much so that my headset no longer layed flat against my head, which on the short skype call I did, drove me CRAZY. My roomie said to wait for her to get home before we walked, and by that time I was already scouring places for a new headset. <BR> <BR> Needless to say, my roomie is completely distracted with getting her room ready, as ... Wed, 5 Jun 2013 14:34:06 EST Day 6 Recap! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5377993 Yesterday was not a bad day at all...back on track with all of my eating (even though I had a MAJOR craving last night, I just keep telling myself 'it's only 2 hours before bed, only 2 hours, you can make it'). My roomie and I also did the stone arch bridge walk again, which is about 3.7 miles yay! We did a little longer route home, so it was about 3.8 miles, and it took us just barely over an hour. For some reason, I seem to be walking REALLY fast lately! :-) <BR> <BR> My pants are still... Tue, 4 Jun 2013 13:26:49 EST Days 4 and 5 recap! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5376811 So this weekend was not too bad! I don't think I completely ate a bazillion calories, although I did have a snag with my workout. I stepped on the elliptical and it promptly broke. Not like a small break either. It is one of the axles in the front part of the machine that is ceramic or concrete, it just snapped in two. Apparently it will cost like $90 to fix, so I'll do that after my trip. <BR> <BR> Instead, my roomie took me on a walk over the Stone Arch Bridge here in Minneapolis. It... Mon, 3 Jun 2013 13:27:31 EST Day 3 Recap! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5373718 Wow, it's been 3 days already? It seems like each day is just flying by! Anyway, yesterday went pretty well. I definitely pulled something though. It only hurts after I'm done walking on pavement though. If I do the elliptical it doesn't aggravate it, I'm assuming because my feet aren't actually hitting anything. So that's good! I just hate that there is nothing I can do, I just have to wait for it to go away. <BR> <BR> It woke me up at like 4:15 this morning, I couldn't find a good ... Fri, 31 May 2013 13:43:32 EST Day 2 Recap! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5372638 Well everyone, day 2 was just fine! I got my workout in, my legs were getting pretty tired toward the end of the hour, but I knew I had to get it done! I put the pizza in my tracker even though I knew I would go over in almost everything. :-P It's ok though, that's the only pizza until probably Saturday (I still have 3 pieces left, but I'll save them for Saturday when I usually only eat 2 meals :-P). <BR> <BR> I was doing fine this morning, no soreness, until I went to put my hair up. I ... Thu, 30 May 2013 13:54:08 EST Day 1 Recap! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5371544 So yesterday was day 1 of my 2 month charge to my 30th b-day/vacation, and I have to say, it went pretty well! It's not too difficult getting back into the swing of things when you haven't really strayed THAT much. The only things I did differently were working out when I got home, and what I ate for dinner. Whenever I have ramen, I'm used to having 2 packages. When I looked last night, I laughed and said to myself 'nope, only one!' I always get the creamy chicken kind and make it like p... Wed, 29 May 2013 13:27:51 EST I'm baaaaaaaaaack! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5370108 Hey yall!! I know it's been a little over 2 months, and I apologize for my hiatus. I have never kept spark far from my mind though, and have been spinning that wheel almost every day. There are two reasons why I'm back: <BR> <BR> 1) My clothes are starting to feel tighter, and I know I've put back on about 10-15 lbs...which is a boooooooo until I remind myself it's not the 50 from before, so yay! :-P <BR> <BR> 2) My 30th birthday is about 2 months away. It is also my golden birthday, s... Tue, 28 May 2013 08:51:04 EST Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Justin... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5292322 I waited to post this blog today until I made it through his new album. And OMG he is a-freakin-mazing. I ran out and got it right after my phone time this morning. It's just SO good!!! I don't have a favorite song, and I'm not sure I will because they are all so good!!! <BR> <BR> So after posting a status about how many calories I burn on the elliptical, I am thinking about getting an HRM to see how much I really burn. It would be nice to know!!! I'm slowly getting faster on it, and my... Tue, 19 Mar 2013 11:36:34 EST SUPER LONG UPDATE TIME!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5286359 Ok peoples, I have to warn you, this may be quite long and rambly. I am starting it in the morning and may not finish it until I leave work today. We shall see. I will try to break it into categories to keep things as on track as possible. :-P <BR> <BR> 1) THE MOVE!!!! <BR> I have been in my new place about a month now, and I freaking LOVE it so much!!! My new job has afforded me the freedom to go out and do things, along with my new location. I am so close to downtown, and the light ra... Thu, 14 Mar 2013 10:21:23 EST Dear Scale: I hate you. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5241277 Hello everyone, this is going to be a bit ranting and rambly, but if you are feeling the same way...and ugh, I just need to get this off my chest. <BR> <BR> Dear scale, <BR> <BR> I hate you. You didn't move this week at ALL!!! I try not to care. I know I am making progress without you, so why the frick can't you cooperate!! My clothes are getting loose again, I am feeling sore in my muscles again, yet you can't let me drop any actual weight. <BR> <BR> You are SO frustrating, I am abou... Thu, 7 Feb 2013 08:45:33 EST WUB #2!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5234914 Ok peeps, not really much to report this week. Lost about 3.5 lbs, but I'm just begging my body to get out of the 320s at this point. <BR> <BR> I'll be posting another blog about my possible over training for a BLC blog later this week. I think I have discovered that I am though! <BR> <BR> I did manage to get all of my water every day (I'm about to finish today's with dinner, which I haven't had yet lol) and I've been good about not eating when I'm not hungry. I managed to not go downs... Sat, 2 Feb 2013 20:59:44 EST BEST. DAY. EVER. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5233468 Ok people, so we will start with a bit of a story. I'll give you the short version for now. 2006, I go to law school in Indiana, and have my cousin move in with me. He doesn't work and just spends the loan money that I get. He gets arrested right around finals in my 2nd year, and I end up flunking out. I don't want to move back home, so I get a job at KMart. I am not able to pay my bills, but manage to make it another year and a half with public assistance, and then I get evicted. I mo... Fri, 1 Feb 2013 15:54:07 EST WUB #1!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5223892 I know this is a strange time to post a WUB, but I want as many points as I can get for my BLC since my weight went completely wacky this week :/ <BR> <BR> So for my fitness plan, I'm going to try to keep doing what I have been doing: <BR> <BR> M-F: Walk for 34 mins during my lunch break at work (about 1.5 miles), then do WATP 2 mile brisk walk when I get home <BR> Sat: Do 3 mile advanced WATP walk <BR> Sun: REST!!! <BR> <BR> This week has been a little screwy since I didn't get my WATP d... Sat, 26 Jan 2013 02:06:35 EST Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5221448 Yeah, I know, I know, I haven't written a blog in a while now. It's because this week I have been SO tired at work, I've been working while mostly asleep and trying to keep my eyes open. Today I feel a bit better, but it's only 9 am :-P <BR> <BR> So this is the frustration part of my blog: <BR> I hopped on the scale today, and it says I gained 5 lbs....5?!?!? My dad tells me he cleaned off the feet of the scale, and that actually had thrown it off a couple of pounds. Whaaaaaaaa? So now ... Thu, 24 Jan 2013 10:30:51 EST OH MY BUTT!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5210509 Dear LORD. So I have just finished my 2 mile brisk walk again, and I have realized why it seems like it is getting harder. Leslie is working her way up my body. No, not in the kinky way. :-P <BR> <BR> When I first started, my legs were sore after a workout. Now I have noticed it is my upper thighs and butt that are on FIRE after I'm done. Hopefully this will translate into getting even stronger in my core. I can feel it already, and I can tell my butt is getting smaller and tighter, an... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 19:14:59 EST !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5202591 Ahh!!!! For some reason, I'm in a SUPER great mood today!!! I can't stop using exclamation marks, as I'm sure everyone whose blog I commented on noticed lol. <BR> <BR> Work is finally getting back to normal, which is SUCH a relief! Jen didn't come in today, and I left her a voice mail, but she hasn't called me back yet. I hope everything is ok! :/ <BR> <BR> Apparently tonight will be a Borderlands 2 night! My brother texted me earlier today that they are dropping stronger shotguns at so... Fri, 11 Jan 2013 18:46:32 EST Ahhhhh 320-land, how I did not miss thee http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5200533 So thank GOD I am finding it pretty easy to get back on track after a horrible holiday season. Hopefully I will be out of the 320s again in a week or two, because I am SO SICK of seeing them!!! <BR> <BR> I am getting my co-worker Jen all excited about the WATP dvd, she looked for it last night at Target and didn't think to look in the sporting goods section, so she's going back tonight to get them. When I told her I had shed half of my holiday weight already, she was like 'oh yes, now I'm ... Thu, 10 Jan 2013 12:52:47 EST Bloooooooooooooooooog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5190026 Yes, I am still here, and I am back to my two-a-day workouts. I am mostly staying in my new range, which makes me happy. It is only about 150-200 cals above the minimum of my last range, but that seems to make all the difference in the world. I won't talk about what happened over Christmas, it's all in my last blog, and I'm feeling much better. I did kinda go crazy over food, but the one thing that I always forget is my freakin water. I don't know why it's SO easy to slack on water, but w... Fri, 4 Jan 2013 12:41:24 EST Mindless A-Z blog because hopefully it will make me feel better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5178878 This is stolen from both ADARKARA and NIKKICOLE83 <BR> <BR> A - Available or Married: Very very available <BR> <BR> B - Book: Anything by John Grisham <BR> <BR> C - Cake or Pie? Can I say both? What is cheesecake considered? :-P <BR> <BR> D - Drink of Choice: any low-cal Monster or Rockstar, as long as I still get my water in :-P <BR> <BR> E - Essential Item: Headphones!! If I go anywhere without them, I feel like I'm not prepared. <BR> <BR> F - Favorite Color: Yellow! <BR> <BR> G - ... Fri, 28 Dec 2012 13:58:16 EST :-( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5177427 Hey everyone...I won't be blogging for a few days. <BR> <BR> Not only is my dad still in the hospital (he has been there since Saturday with a staph infection in his blood), my grandpa was in the hospital too. He went in with the flu and then they found a bowel obstruction. He had surgery on Sunday or Monday and had just gotten out of ICU yesterday morning. <BR> <BR> Then I was taking my sister back to her place and my dad called. My grandpa died last night. <BR> <BR> He is the first gr... Thu, 27 Dec 2012 08:25:56 EST It's a good thing huffing chocolate doesn't have any calories ;-) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5172117 So I just wanted to hop on before my walk today...maybe blogging will keep me warm. It is FREEZING in our office. A co-worker suggested snuggies, and I am totally on board. I have always wanted one, and it would be perfect! :-P <BR> <BR> So the title of my blog has to do with all that candy we got recently. I have left the hershey's kisses in the mug (ok I had two on like Friday, but I haven't touched them since) and you know how they are never really closed at the top? Well if I pick u... Thu, 20 Dec 2012 14:20:52 EST Tiiiiiiired and yes, I still love N Sync! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5169947 So yesterday a blog didn't get written because I was having a VERY hard time typing and trying to keep my head off of my desk. My brother had to start work at 1 am, and I was volunteered to take him. So I got about 4 hours of sleep on Sunday night. I had like 3/4 of an energy drink, and even that didn't help. Work FLEW by and I didn't get nearly as much done as I usually do. My walk helped to wake me up, but I even took that 30 mins later than I usually do (my walking partner went home e... Tue, 18 Dec 2012 09:31:57 EST A Saturday blog from Michelle?! Either the world is ending or Keenan is busy ;-) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5167331 So yeah, here I am, on a Saturday!!! Keenan and David are hanging out, having lunch, playing some playstation today, to celebrate David's 32nd b-day, which was on the 12th. <BR> <BR> Yesterday was going really well, until my sister came home. I swear, she is the worst pusher on the PLANET!!!!! Her and my brother went to DQ because my mom had another BOGO blizzard coupon. Well they did get 2 blizzards...and my brother got an entire freakin ice cream cake. Now I don't mind the cake, I don'... Sat, 15 Dec 2012 13:18:54 EST Holy Walk Away The Pounds Batman!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5165791 Wow....just....wow...I promised you guys a review of my DVDs, and I think the Walk Away the Pounds DVD is probably the best one I have ever purchased. <BR> <BR> I just did the one mile intro thing that was only 18 mins, but I felt it way more than my walks I do every day!!! Plus she's really easy to listen to, and I found myself getting lost in the workout. Best thing ever to happen during a workout. :-D <BR> <BR> So yeah, if you like walking, I would recommend this DVD 110%...it is amazin... Thu, 13 Dec 2012 19:45:52 EST Could today GET any more weird?!?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5165611 Ok, so I have spent like half the time working today, but have gotten at least twice as much done. Our system is fully functional again, so I was getting more done this morning. <BR> <BR> We had a video conference meeting with some people in Ohio that took up an hour this morning. Then we had our holiday party, and our boss was getting us lunch. I didn't know what it was until this morning: Buca di Beppo. Famous for their HUGE family sizes of Italian food. Now I LOVE LOVE LOVE pasta,... Thu, 13 Dec 2012 15:33:05 EST Random things... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5164410 So it's kind of fun to have a walking partner, but they all like to go way faster than I do!! I understand about getting my heart rate up, but I don't want to get back to work a sweaty mess!!! :-P I also really wish there was a way that spark can consider inclines and such in walks...they really make my 1.5 mile walk through the skyway seem harder than my 1.8 mile walk outside!! <BR> <BR> I love it when all the bosses that sit across from me are gone...I'm listening to Pandora and doing a b... Wed, 12 Dec 2012 13:28:41 EST Oy I hate snow! or Why the heck do I still live in Minnesota?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5162305 So this weekend did not go at ALL as planned. The trip to Windom happened, sure, but then it snowed on Friday. Just like 2 inches. Suddenly everyone and their mother forgot how to drive in the snow! My dad went down to Mankato and was calling my mom with every accident he saw between the cities and Mankato on 169. Needless to say, we didn't go. We stayed home and ordered pizza and I sat on my butt instead. I was upset because I made sure to wear really cute clothes on Friday to the gam... Mon, 10 Dec 2012 15:16:59 EST Night 1 down... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5159275 and I am SO SO SO exhausted. We got home at 11:15 last night, but I didn't go to bed until 12. Then I remembered I hadn't taken my medicine and had to get back out of bed at 12:10 to do that. <BR> <BR> I slept from home to my grandparents' house (we had oranges to drop off for them) but then I drove the rest of the way to Windom (like 35 mins) and then the entire way back (about 2hr 15 min). I did have a Rockstar on the way back, and was still almost seeing cross eyed by the time I got ho... Fri, 7 Dec 2012 12:21:39 EST Whoooo boy... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5158248 So the next three nights...are going to be late ones. <BR> <BR> My dad just texted me this morning that we have to take a road trip to Windom (about 2 hours away) to get some FFA fruit because according to him, he "can't count right". :-P He has to bring me, because my mom is busy and my brother works at 4 am, and he can't make the drive himself without falling asleep. I hope we get home by 10. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow night we have more games in Mankato (Go Mavericks!!) and those are at 6 and... Thu, 6 Dec 2012 13:03:43 EST Oh Monday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5154687 Hey hey, I hope everyone had a great weekend!!! I actually did pretty well except my water got kind of behind. I'm back to it today though! <BR> <BR> There is a seriously cute guy that I keep seeing in the elevator that I keep making chit-chat with...I'm hoping there may be some mutual attraction there...but if not, eh. :-P <BR> <BR> Oh, so I have a new walking buddy!!! Jen just cares about her work too much...she has stopped going on walks with me because she is so stressed about her stuf... Mon, 3 Dec 2012 12:09:12 EST Wow I've gotten horrible about blogging... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5150603 So yeah...another 8 days goes by...pretty much my whole life has been summed up in my status messages though. :-P The crappy crappy week of sleep has not continued, although I do continue to be very sleepy in the morning. <BR> <BR> I know a couple of my spark friends will be sad, but I did stop my subscription to WoW yesterday. I will be back, but I'm not sure when. It's mainly because of all the new Steam games I bought over the weekend!!!! They seemed to have everything on sale (except... Thu, 29 Nov 2012 12:52:21 EST Sooooo looking forward to tomorrow!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5142618 <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <em>429</em> <em>430</em> <BR> <BR> Yay for tomorrow, Thanksgiving!!!!

Wed, 21 Nov 2012 13:30:56 EST Quick update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5141389 Hey yall, not feeling the best mentally today, but I figured I would let you know that I am all done with doctor's visits for now! I went to see the gyno yesterday, and he has me on progesterone every month to see if that prevents me from having one of these anemia-causing, frustrating events again. I have been thinking about the IUD, which would be Mirena because it has the same progesterone in it, but we'll see how this goes first. <BR> <BR> I'm really trying to get back on track right n... Tue, 20 Nov 2012 10:31:20 EST Not safe for work, nor guys...frustrated yelling about periods!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5137421 Ok seriously...have yall ever heard that argument that random ahem...hardness in boys is as to periods in girls? Yeah that is SO not comparable. At all. <BR> <BR> First, periods come every month for like 40 years. That thing with the boys? Yeah it's only for a few through adolescence. The mess that periods make? Destroys things like sheets and clothing. The mess that boys make? It can be washed out. You have never ever heard someone say 'oh, she got her period, that's kinda cute' an... Fri, 16 Nov 2012 12:12:04 EST Things I have realized... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5136478 This blog may be a little...unorganized. My brain feels kind of slow right now, so I may be jumping around a bit. <BR> <BR> This morning I realized....that Spark has been more than just a resource for me and a source of inspiration and friendship. It's also something to keep my hands busy!!!! I haven't been commenting on things like at all for the last week or two, and that's when I have been munching in the morning. I started reading blogs and things this morning, and no desire to mun... Thu, 15 Nov 2012 14:57:48 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5135582 So ever since Monday I have been bleeding like a mo foka...having to run to the bathroom about every hour and a half lest I destroy my clothes. So today I called for my ultrasound results (which ironically came in the mail today) and they told me that it said everything was fine. I was baffled. I immediately called the gyno, and talked to a nurse, who said I should get to the ER ASAP because of all the blood loss. <BR> <BR> So I called my mom, crying, and told her I needed to get to the E... Wed, 14 Nov 2012 20:01:10 EST Roller Coaster (not of love unfortunately...) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5132727 This past week...sheesh. I won't go into every detail because I don't even know what is going on yet. <BR> <BR> Basically I went to the doc on Monday, saw a general surgeon on Friday, who determined that I have internal hemorrhoids (since they're inside they're not painful), and I had a pelvic ultrasound on Saturday. <BR> <BR> David and Keenan were funny on Friday night. I let them know how my thing on Friday went (I did have to lie down until some tylenol kicked in because sitting was ju... Mon, 12 Nov 2012 12:36:20 EST I need a hug :-( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5121471 This is totally going to be a 'woe is me' blog. If you're having an awesome day, just skip it lol <BR> <BR> I don't feel well. I'm really warm and tired, and I just want to go back to bed. I am so glad I am only working 8 hours today. My dad tried to push me for another 1.5 hours so then I would get 3 hours of overtime in (even in addition to making up my hours from Monday I have 1.5 of overtime) but I decided on Tuesday that I'm not staying late today. <BR> <BR> My stomach feels like a... Fri, 2 Nov 2012 12:42:08 EST What the frick is going on with me?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5120526 So it's still not gone. I have an appointment on Monday that I will cancel if it somehow magically goes away over the weekend, which I doubt. But we shall see. <BR> <BR> I have plans with my sister to go see Sinister on Saturday evening, so that will be fun! We're going to buy things beforehand and I will NOT get popcorn there, I am determined! <BR> <BR> The fiber boosting has been going pretty well I must say. Bringing breakfast in the morning is kind of strange, but it does feel a lot... Thu, 1 Nov 2012 16:43:48 EST Whole week?! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5118208 You really know you had a rough week when you only blog once and you do the rest through your statuses. Yeah, last week was horrible. Not for fitness, a little for food, and more for neither one of those things, but everything else in general. <BR> <BR> This weekend was really rough too. I woke up totally light-headed and dizzy on Saturday morning, and I was NOT feeling well. I had made it halfway through my Grisham novel and was determined to finish it on Saturday. Keenan and David wer... Tue, 30 Oct 2012 17:38:54 EST You know it's already been a rough week when... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5110193 1) Your new Slipknot station on Pandora is turned up so loud on your computer at work that you can't hear ANYTHING going on around you, but you don't want to. <BR> <BR> 2) Your mom goes out of town and your dad is not going to be home, so you and your brother look at each other and you KNOW you're getting pizza and you don't care. <BR> <BR> 3) You drink more energy drinks than water for 2 days in a row. <BR> <BR> Ok, so that is the cutesy start to my blog. I need to preface this next part... Tue, 23 Oct 2012 16:47:48 EST Crazy dreams, new jeans, and some added rewards! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5104792 So today I am wearing my new, size 24 jeans. They are a bit long as I have short gosh darn legs, and the calves are a little tight because they are boot cut, but OMG I love them!!!!! I have been avoiding jeans since I went up out of Lane Bryant sizes, and now that I'm back down in them, I bought some. And I am so happy I did. I feel awesome!! :-D <BR> <BR> So the dream I had the other night...I don't know what to make of it. I have told people since I was 16 that I never wanted to have ... Fri, 19 Oct 2012 10:27:30 EST Another challenge to tackle... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5103739 I know I don't talk about it much, but I smoke. I know it's not good for me, I've heard it all before, so don't even go there lol. I have quit twice before, but it was out of necessity as one time I had a blood clot (smoking and on birth control, didn't think it would happen to me) and the other time it's because I moved home and couldn't sneak it anywhere. <BR> <BR> It started when I went to France in the fall of 03...I was at a bar on a weekend night with a bunch of people from my grou... Thu, 18 Oct 2012 12:23:37 EST And yesterday is forgotten!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5102707 It is amazing how other people can see things that we can not see. That co worker from before just went to get water the same time I did and she says 'you must have lost more weight, every time I see you I'm like 'where did she go!'' <BR> <BR> This my fair spark people, has made me completely move on (well I have to admit that some people on here helped hehe) from last night. I am so excited to keep going and going, and if it's shifting, that is awesome as well. I will measure again next ... Wed, 17 Oct 2012 15:25:49 EST
