Another week. Wow. It's going by so fast. I can't believe that Thanksgiving is next week already. Crazy. Not too much to report again. Things are more or less the same. That one royal pain in my butt is finally gone. I'm beyond thrilled about that one. No more do I have to listen to her be a moron or listen to that awful tone of her voice. Honestly, I'd rather listen to someone scratching a chalkboard than hear her speak ever again. The new one starts tomorrow, so I guess we shall see how that one goes. Hopefully this one actually listens to what we're saying so she can learn and actually learns them, not forgets them in 2 seconds flat. I swear, a goldfish has a better memory and attention span than that last one. My word. Still no news on the finding a new job front. I'm actually probably not going to be able to get something else until it's finally time to leave this black hole of an area. Guess I just have to accept that. And I guess it's alright for now. Because once I get my paycheck in to the bank and cleared to go, I'm going to be paying off the final $200 on that loan I got from a friend to help me file bankruptcy. Once that is paid off, I can pay more on that stupid hospital bill that I have to start paying on this month, which I'd also like to thank that nearly $2300 bill for ruining all of my Christmas plans, and get that paid in about 11 months. Then when that is paid, I'll have even more funds to get that loan I got for that piece of crap car and get my gas bill paid off. So maybe here in a year and a half to two years, I'll be completely debt free. Then I can think about getting a secure credit card or a car loan for a better car or something and finally rebuild my credit. So hopefully nothing happens to throw a wrench in that plan.

I did a little better this week on the trying to be healthier front. I stayed in my calorie ranges 3 days this last week. Definitely better than my usual zero. I had to get something for dinner on Wednesday because I was just so sick. It was what I call "hormone sick". When my hormones are raging more than they usually do, I get really hot and dizzy and exhausted. It's not pretty. And it's really much worse in life than what I can type and tell you. And it's been the absolute worst this year. Probably because I'm so ridiculously overweight. I've done some research on it and the fat cells in the abdomen actually release extra estrogen, which can cause a lot of things. The most interesting thing is that it can make your body think it's pregnant when it's not. And I don't mean just delaying TOM to ridiculous proportions, it can make you nauseous and all those other early pregnancy symptoms. That explains what happened back in June/July. And it's kind of happening again. Not like it was this last summer, though. No pregnancy symptoms here. Just 2 months late again and miserable. It's close. I know it is. I can feel it. So I'm going to try this vitamin C thing I read about to see if I can finally jump-start the worst of the misery and finally be on my way. Sorry, rambling on about that one. Just annoys me. Anyways, I also managed to get in 2 straight days of exercising in. I ended up having to stop after those 2 days because of not only the hormonal sickness but because I was really sore. Not as sore as that one time, thankfully. Just really sore. It's frustrating because my mind knows that I can do this stuff, but my body is just not cooperating. It's just really aggravating. But I have this idea to try to work my way around that and get back up and running. I figure that I was able to get in 2 days last week before having to stop. So, I'm going to aim for 3 this week and keep adding a day every week. That way I'm doing something every week and building back up to the momentum I want. I'm keeping all my routines to really easy stuff. And as I keep building back my strength, I can start swapping them out to something just a bit harder and keep going. So we shall see how that plan goes. So, all in all, I did manage a 2.4 pound loss this week. That takes me back out of the 300s. I better not see them again. If I do, I just may scream.

Anyway, this blog has gotten much longer than I had intended. I do apologize. I better get going now. Need to get the housework done and get this week's lunches pre-cooked. Take care, everyone, and keep sparking! emoticon

    I think you are doing great by sticking to your calorie range even a few days a week. Like you said, as long as it is an improvement from last week, you can feel proud of yourself for improving.

    The exercise sounds great too! 2 days in a row qualifies as a streak :D Go you!

    I'm sorry to hear that you get so sick :( I would say to give yourself an extra little pat on the back for improving this week in spite of the sickness. :D
