    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

    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 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

    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.

  • October and the Part 2 Cycle

    10/2/2017 11:13:29 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Well its October and I've been functioning in the Part 2 cycle of my life style since the end of August. The Part 2 cycle is where I am really only about 70% on plan. I tend to maintain my weight within a 4-5 lb window of ups and downs but never really seeing my low weight. The Part 1 cycle is wh... Read more

    ... 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
