  • Starting to really focus on what I need right now

    10/20/2017 1:37:07 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    Today is the second day in a row that I've focused on burning at least 1000 calories/day in addition to my BMR. I am also tracking every bite of food, so that I at generating at least a 1000 calorie deficit/day. Today's calorie burn was a 5.6 mile walk around the lake in 80minutes. Yep. Th... Read more

  • Getting better every day

    10/19/2017 3:13:29 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    I'm feeling a bit better every day. On today's walk, I began to really think about things. Yes, I'll be soon saying good bye to this apartment and being able to walk around the lake. But I'll be back home with my dogs and my hubby. I have struggled to fit into that small community, but it ... Read more

  • Back from today's walk

    10/18/2017 2:08:10 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    I'm feeling a little better every day. I re-read the paper that they provided me outlining how I was not meeting the job requirements. I know that sounds sad, but in all honesty, it has helped me realize that I was not fitting into that job. That it wasn't just me dropping the ball one day, ... Read more

  • still plugging away

    I'm still plugging away. I woke up this morning after a nightmare again. A nightmare about the job I recently lost. I know it's a trauma. I'm just finding it frustrating. In all honesty, I'm getting over it much faster than I normally would, but it's still a struggle. I'm back at my s... Read more

  • this one's a bit of a downer still

    10/13/2017 11:29:53 AM, by BLUEROSE73

    I am still struggling. No surprise. It was just a couple of days ago when I lost my job. The reality is that I'm doing better than even I expected at this point. It's just so hard in the morning. Not having a reason to get up early and get going. And the phone being so quiet. I have become use... Read more

  • It wasn't easy but ...

    I got dressed and went for a walk today. I didn't sleep well, so it was that much harder to get out the door. But I did it. While I was out I picked up a letter outlining the issues at work that lead to me not passing my probationary period. After walking, I took the time to read it. Hone... Read more

  • I hate days like this

    10/10/2017 9:42:59 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    I got an email today requesting that I meet with my supervisor and the director for a performance evaluation. I responded to my boss to ask if I should be concerned overall. She replied saying "there are area's of concern that we are not prepared to discuss today". Needless to say I'm stres... Read more

  • Today's steps forward

    10/9/2017 7:49:59 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    I walked around the lake (3.6miles) after driving home. I tracked all of my food so far today. At least the pain is gone today. It was bad last week. But despite the pain, I still found a way to get my walking in. What are you going to do today to reach your goals?... Read more

    - I went for a 3 mile walk before work - I am on day 2 of tracking my food - I am in training at work again, and focusing on implementing what I'm learning not only into my practice but also into the report I'm up late nights writing at this point. So I'm counting today as a success. Rat... Read more

  • It's been a lifetime...

    10/1/2017 9:02:03 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    ... since I've blogged. Life has completely changed for me. I finished my BSW, and was offered a position a few days after I finished my last class. It is a fantastic position. It's actually my dream position. I actually get to help people. I'm finding it a bit difficult at times, but am... Read more
