I should have got up this morning and got dressed immediately and gone for a walk but I just didn't feel like it. I had a hell of a night at work last night. Where I work is divided into 6 cottages of 12-18 residents, and as a nurse I'm responsible for 2 of the 6 cottages to give meds, assess, etc. But also as the RN I'm responsible for the entire building because I have 2 LPNs who are working in the other 4 cottages who rely on me if they need me. I also (theoretically) have 2 care aides who do the personal care for the residents and serve meals. Well last night I was short 2 of my care aides, and 1 of the care aides I did have was super new and...well lets just say isn't as efficient at her job as she could be. So needless to say I was crazy ass busy last night and came home exhausted. I then, instead of just going to bed, stayed up and watched the news, then watched the 2 recorded Big Brother's (So glad Shelly went home!) and poured myself into bed at about 1am. I woke up early to Chris rolling over and taking all the blankets with him and was kinda awake since then, finally getting out of bed at about 9 to just sit on the couch, read blogs and watch the price is right.
What the hell happened? I was so motivated a month ago...and I still am I guess. I still have the willpower to eat well, haven't even had a thought of drinking pop/soda, and really WANT to go for a walk...I just don't have the energy to get off my butt today, until I go to work at 3. I'm fully expecting to see a HORRIBLE weigh in this week. A gain? I doubt it. A loss? Perhaps a small one. I absolutely need to get back on track and quickly. I want to lose at least 10lbs a month (doable I think, at least for the time being). This being the beginning of September, thank goodness I have time to fix it. I lost over 12lbs last month so I'm on track there. Another thing that may save my butt is the 30 Day Shred challenge I'm starting with Miss April on the 12th (the day after my 2 year anniversary). If anybody else wants to partake in this 30 days of
Also a big shout out to everybody participating in No Soda September. Lets do this! If we can go one month why not 2...or 3...or having 1 every 6 months as a treat!? It's not realistic to say "I'm never going to drink pop again!!" because...what else are you going to mix rum with?? You need Coke/Pepsi for that for sure! Haha. Anyways, I'm gonna wait for Chris to wake up and hopefully he'll help get me off my ass to go for a walk before work...or maybe I'll just paint my toenails...HAHA.
Tomorrow will be a busy day but hopefully full of lots of fun. Details on that Sunday probably with some awesome photos...Which reminds me! I need to charge the camera battery! Have a great weekend everybody!!!
