Long time, no blog!
Well, hellooooo there SP! I've been super busy and pretty much m.i.a. from here for awhile. My last blog was almost a month ago, and it was basically just me whining... so let's remedy that!
Brief update: New Year's rocked. I worked i... Read more
I'm not feeling Christmas-y this year, and I think it's all due to my job. I have Christmas Eve off, which is great because my dad's side of the family is celebrating then. I'm working a double shift (7a-11p) on Christmas day... yikes. I work... Read more
As of this morning, I'm 20 pounds down! WOOHOO! I started August 1st @ 143, and I was 123 today. It's been a good few months for me and I'm still feeling so motivated. Hopefully I can keep it going through the holidays!

Snow in NC!
This is my back yard right now... so pretty! This wouldn't be as shocking, but the high on Wednesday was 70. Crazy!... Read more

I've been a busy bee the last couple of weeks!
I started my new/first nursing job, which has been... interesting. I have 25 patients at a time, which is borderline ridiculous. My first day off orientation/by myself, I didn't sit down th... Read more
I got the job! and some other fun stuff.
So, the job I blogged about last time... I GOT IT! YAY YAY YAY! My first RN position! I graduated from nursing school in May and have had a heck of a time even getting an interview. The job is second shift at a nursing home/rehab facility, a... Read more
I have a job interview for an RN position tomorrow! It's at a facility that does rehab, hospice and long term care. Probably just a fancy name for a nursing home, but oh well. I'm a new grad and can't afford to be picky. I've been out of sch... Read more
You can give me toning shoes, but you can't make me wear them!
So, I am working part time at Crocs until I find myself a nursing job. We're about to start hawking toning shoes to the gullible public. If you have a pair, I'm sorry, but you got ripped off. THEY DON'T WORK. The research done by these compa... Read more
I went running today. Seriously.
This is a momentous event, let me tell you. I love to work out, and do so regularly, but running is just something I don't do. I used to go semi-regularly with my roommate, but we didn't even do that the last year or so we lived together. It'... Read more
Fall is here!
This is what my back yard looks like at the moment. SO nice out!

My plateau, that is! I've been stuck for about 2 weeks, and it was nice to see the numbers go down again finally! I hope this isn't a fluke and it keeps on going! I think going off track for a couple of days this weekend may have actually hel... Read more
So, I had big plans to keep it healthy when my friends came over for scary movie night (The Exorcist & Silence of the Lambs). Boy, did I blow that. Let's just say there were cookies involved. And wine. My parents went out of town with some f... Read more
Dexterrrr! and stream of consciousness.
I'm catching up on season 4 currently. This show just gets better and better. I can't wait to see where this season goes.
This blog is totally pointless... I just can't get over how epic this show is. Anywhoooo, I did the elliptical for ... Read more
Blah, blah, blah and I need YOUR help!
My weight loss has stalled. BIG bummer, right?! So while I'm not dropping pounds, I'm going to focus on other positive things I can do for my body. I'm shaking things up and trying out some new workouts and healthy recipes. I've noticed some... Read more
