Long Time No Blogs

Monday, February 11, 2013

Wow it's been a long time since I've written anything... Since October to be specific... This is gonna be a long one.

We have been in Lincoln for almost 7 months now and I actual quite like it here. Although it is now winter and it's colder than anything I've ever experienced! And my job requires being outside in even the coldest conditions... brrrr. Aside from that I've found that this is really not a bad place to reside :)

My job is going well. I got good reviews at my 90 day review and they seem quite happy with my work. The owner of the business even called me into her office and said "Sam, you do damn good work and I'm giving you a raise" :) So that was awesome! It is quite stressful sometimes, we are down some workers who moved onto other things, but for the most part we are sort of slow now that that holidays were over. Thanksgiving and Christmas were INSANE!!! We are talking upwards of 250 dogs a day.

As for weight-loss; I have dropped to 113 and have been sitting there nicely for QUITE a while now. That is more than fine with me. I'm looking to lose some inches around my abdomen. Currently my waist measures 25" and that was my "goal". My abdomen is measuring at about 31" I'd like to drop a couple there...

Fitness - I reached about the middle of month 2 for ChaLEAN Extreme and had to stop due to a health issue. Sorry if this is TMI, but I all of a sudden stopped getting my period... I was not pregnant, I took lots of tests, all coming up negative... So I stopped working out and upped my protein intake ALOT and it eventually resolved itself, but I have to really watch my protein intake now. Apparently I wasn't getting enough and my body new it. So I have restarted the program and if there are no more complications I will finish :) haha!

Guess I will end now. It's my day off work and I have places to go and things to do. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone is doing well!

    That's great about your raise and it's important that you enjoy living where you do. Way to go on maintaining your weight, and I know you'll lose those inches if you put your mind to it! You can do it, girl!
