Bad blogger

I'm a bad blogger because I didn't post lately, but in my defence, I have been really busy with a large dose of no motivation. I haven't been to the gym in a few days because I was letting my body heal, but I thing it's time to go back.
I started my new job today, and it was a lot different than I expected. The clients need a lot of care, but I'm sure that I can do this and the change might be right for me. The hours are awesome, as well as the vacation and the pay. I am really hoping that I can make this work and do well with this.
I am feeling some anxiety tonight as well as sadness and I'm a bit lonely. I know that joey only left today for two weeks, but I feel like it wasn't a good time for him to go away, I was fine while he was here, but now I'm feeling some pain and sadness, and a little overwhelmed with the changes that I have been going through in the past week. What I really need is some time off to sleep and heal, and instead, I'll be working 72 hours per week for the next 2 weeks. I honestly hope that I can make it through this, because if I can't, I may end up with no job, and then where would I be??
Oh well, I hope I made the right decision.

On a diet note, I am going to spend some time this weekend, doing up meal plans, and menu ideas and hopefully making some easy, core breakfasts that I can eat on my way to work. That's the plan and we'll see how it goes. As for this week in the evenings, I'm going to try extremely hard to get caught up on my course. There is so much to do, I hope I am strong enough to do it all!!!

Week from hell

I can honestly say that I had the worst/craziest week ever.
On tuesday I found out that I was pregnant, and I was so excited but scared. I was scared because 5 years ago I had a miscarriage and I knew that I was probably at a high risk this time too. So Joey and I were trying not to talk about it, but we eventually ended up in the baby section at walmart, planning and laughing. we were so excited...then last night I started bleeding, I had to go to work, which was terrible. I went to the doctor and he said that I was miscarrying, and my levels show that this would not have been a viable pregnancy anyway. I am really sad but I'll be ok eventually.
Also today I got a phone call offering me a job, with awesome hours, full benefits and a pension plan. This is quite a big decision to make on a day like today, but I said yes, and I'll end up working 2 jobs for the time being until I give my notice, etc. oh well, I'll deal.

Also Joey is going away monday for 2 weeks! This sucks because I couldn't need him more than right now, but he has to sail on another ship. It is only a short sail so I should be ok.
Add to this the fact that I had my first personal training session (which was awesome) and had to cancel my second, to give my body some time off and it makes for a crazy week.

So now I have to pick myself up, get back on track and stay strong. I can do this.

Sunday, January 6, 2008


Today was a lazy sunday for me, I didn't get dressed, and I didn't move too far from the couch. I was really busy though, writing a paper and catching up on my courses. I'm so glad to have one assignment done but I still have a long way to go to be caught up.

As for the weight watchers and exercise, I am doing very well. I started a calendar to keep track of my on program days, and I am using stickers, an idea which I borrowed from some other girls. I totally love getting the stickers, it is so exciting!! I bought Eeyore ones and Tinkerbell ones, and I get one for every day that I am on program. This includes eating properly, tracking everything, drinking my water, and exercising when I am scheduled to do so. On the exercise rest days I will still get a sticker because I am following my plan.
I totally love this idea, and it is definitely motivating me!

I have decided that I need to come up with a meal plan for suppers too, taking into account when I am working. This will make it easier to stay on track, and hopefully reduce the temptation to eat out as much as we have been.
All in all I feel really great lately, and I hope it continues. When I feel good it affects everything in my life for the better.
Have a great evening everyone!!

Weigh in day

So as I mentioned yesterday, today was weigh in. I had a gain of 1.6 which I'm really happy about because when I came back from Cape Breton I was up 10lbs on my scale. So now I have to lose 2 lbs to get back down to where I was before christmas.

I had a great workout today, I really pushed myself and felt great afterwards, then Joey went to the mall and I had a nap. It was such a great day. I have to talk to the trainer today and set up an appointment, probably for monday, I can't wait.

I also called the woman back about the job interview, I have a time set up for tuesday, hopefully I have a good shot at it because I think a change is exactly what I need right now.

Anyway, I guess that's all for now :)

Hump Day!!

I'm so glad that the weekend is almost here! I am stilll trying to recover from the holidays and I want to use the weekend to do some cleaning and organizing as well as catching up on some sleep.

I have my weigh in tomorrow, and I know that I have gained, but I am back on track and moving forward. I joined 2 challenges on the board and I am going to work my hardest at achieving them. One is to get 1200 mins of activity in Jan. ant the other is to lose 10 lbs this month (I may not reach this one due to the gain that I am expecting, but I'm still going to try.
I am hoping that if I start the year strong, I will continue to get stronger over time!!

At the Gym tomorrow I am planning to book my first personal training session, which is a consultation. I got 5 sessions as gift from joey and I am so excited and nervous at the same time. I have never had a trainer before so I'm not really sure what to expect.

I got a message today that a place that I applied to wants me for an interview. By the time that I got home the place was closed so I'll call tomorrow and set up a time. This exciting too because as early as next week my current job hours are being cut. Although this job is less pay, it is more hours and the hours are much better. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it is what I'm looking for, and that I'm what they're looking for. I applied to a couple of other jobs too, but so far no word.
Well I guess that's all for tonight, I'm going to bed.
More soon!
