Weigh In #12

Well hello there everybody! I haven't blogged much at all since being on holidays...and what a great holiday it's been. I've slept, gotten my new puppy, had a wonderful dinner with my in-laws, spent time with my parents and went shopping and done a whole heck of a lot...except eat right and exercise. Now when I say I haven't exercised, I mean I haven't...not one bit. At all. But my eating hasn't been THAAAAT horrible...except the pizza...and the potato chips...and the chocolate...oh and the nachos...ugh...but I guess that's what holidays are for. Right? No??? SHIT!!!

Anyways, needless to say I was a liiiittle scared to step on that scale today...was thinking "hmm I should 'forget' that today is weigh in day". But I bit the bullet, stripped down and hopped up on that mean little bastard and waited for what seemed was an eternity for the number to pop up...and I was honestly shocked. The scale read 291.5...WHAT!? Um how the hell does somebody lose 2.3lbs while sitting on their ass and eating like crap?? All I can say is I've used up my Christmas miracle. But I'll take it!! I'm now at a new low and just shy of reaching the 25lb milestone. I'm set to head back to work on November 2nd so you'll see more frequent posting from me once I go back (kicking and screaming the whole way....cuz I really really don't feel like going back yet).

I'm going to leave you with a few photos I've taken recently:

Weigh In #11

Hey all...I'm posting my weigh in a few days late, but I did take it on the right day. Not much to say. Loss of 0.1lb...yes you read that right, I may as well not have even bothered haha. But at least it's 0.1 down and not up. I don't want to make excuses at all. I sucked major ass this week but there is a reason. I have had soooo much stress this past couple weeks that really sucked the life out of me. I did eat well, but yes I did stress eat at some points, and I was absolutely exhausted so my ass had a lot of couch time. So I'm not totally bummed with the 0.1lb...but do I wish I could go back in time and FORCE myself to get off the damn couch even though I was so stressed I was nothing but a ball of tears the last week...absolutely. That's what this is all about: weight loss. But...Onwards and upwards (or shall I say downwards haha). Enjoying my vacation so far. Have spent some time with my parents, gotten some sleep and *drumroll here* am going to pick up our brand new puppy on the 26th!!! Name ideas welcome!!!!

And The Doctor Said...

I finally got in to see my doctor today. You guys can read the full story leading up to today's appointment here and here if you already don't know it.

I know you ladies know that your yearly appointment is the worst one ever, and to think that something may be wrong with your lady bits is TERRIFYING...You have no idea what was going through my head the last 6 days! My worst fear of course was cervical cancer...yes I know I'm young but it's not unheard of. So anyways, after not sleeping well for nearly a week, I'm sitting in the doctors office, trying not to burst into tears, fidgeting and sighing trying to keep my cool. The doctor walks in, takes one look at me and goes "relax everything is fine". I let out a huge sigh of relief...then I was mad. Fine...FINE???? Then why the hell am I here?? Turns out that I had an overgrowth of the normal bacteria that live there and need a course of antibiotics...AND YOU COULDN'T TELL ME THIS OVER THE PHONE AND CALL IN A  PRESCRIPTION!?!?!?!? I had to worry for days that I was going to die (ok ok maybe I'm a little over dramatic) and I just needed a stinkin antibiotic!? Irritating. But I'm fine...thank goodness.

Thanks all of you who sent me well wishes after my post this morning. I definitely appreciate it. Love you all!!! 24 hours until I'm on VACATION!!!!

Going Crazy

I blogged last week about my doctor (well the office) calling to say they got test results back that they needed to discuss. Obviously there is something not right going on or they wouldn't have wanted to see me again. I got that call on Thursday. And I've had to wait until today to get in. Not only did I have to wait til today...I have to wait until 1pm! That's just mean! I'm going nuts! I didn't sleep well last night, kept waking up. I was having dreams about being at the doctors office and being told I have cancer, then I'd wake up...try to slow my heart rate down so I could go back to sleep (which takes a while when you're a bundle of anxious nerves!), would fall asleep only to have a dream of being told I was pregnant! Oi Vey! Now I'm sitting here watching the price is right, reading Cosmo, texting and blogging all to keep my mind occupied enough to not focus on the tight knot in my stomach....and even that's not working...I'm gonna lose my mind by 1pm...I'll update you all when I can...I do work at 3 so it might not be until late...AHHHHHHH

3 More Days...

3 more days, 3 more days, 3 more days until I'm officially on vacation from work and I don't have to think about that place for 12 gloriously wonderful days. Thank God! I need this sooooo bad. I do plan on spending 1 day in bed where I get up to pee, drink and eat...If I nap that's great, if not that's why there's TV! And I'm not even gonna feel the slightest bit guilty about it. The other days I plan on spending cleaning and going for wonderful walks and hanging out with my family. I just need to relax. And hopefully my twitchy eye goes away.

Tomorrow I have suuuuuch a busy day at work. I have to get what I normally would get done in 8 hours...in 5 because my last 3 hours are filled with meetings....yaaaaaaaay...I just love meetings (note the sarcasm!). Following that I have my "long change" where I don't have to work until evenings the next day. I'll get to sleep in, go for a walk before work, perhaps take the camera out as I did tonight (once I download the software for my new camera I will post some of the pictures I took today...lets just say they star a pirate ship and BOB).

I've been eating alright but I've been maaaajorly slacking on the exercise. And I know it's because I'm so damn tired. I was in need of vacation MONTHS ago...but I waited until I was ready to kill somebody...which is too late and I know that now. I need to take better care of my self emotionally. I have a hard job. Not so much physically demanding (I walk a LOT and I pick people up off the floor but I'm not doing CPR on a daily basis), but definitely emotionally and mentally draining. It's just hard to give everything you have to these people who become your family because in many cases you're all they have...their families don't visit, their spouses are dead, and they're losing their memories. But I've learned my lesson. I have to take care of myself or I'm not going to be able to take care of them the way they deserve to be taken care of. That being said I am still providing excellent care...it's just that I don't necessarily WANT to be there because I'm so exhausted. I'm not giving them 100% of me when I'm at work right now. Because I don't have it in me right now. I'm sure my vacation away from work will bring me right back to where I need to be. I've also decided that I will only post my weigh ins while on vacation because I want to focus on me during that time. Hope y'all understand.

As for now, I'm going to have a long hot leisurely bath to warm my toes that are so cold I feel like they could snap them off like an icicle if I try to bend them! Gnight all!

Weigh In #10

I was really not expecting much of this weigh in. I am down to 293.9lbs (down 1.3lbs this week but still up from my low a couple weeks ago of 292.8. This puts me at down 22 lbs total in 10 weeks. Not awful but not spectacular. I'm definitely not breaking any records but at least the scale is going in the downward direction. I'm promising myself that I'm going to do better this week. I'm going to set time aside for myself and exercise. And now that we're nice and stocked up with groceries that should be easier too. Hope everybody is having a great day.

A Stressful Few Days

Ok y'all...It's air out my soul time. I've had a shitty week. I'm exhausted. I'm cranky...and to make it worse...I'm not even covering it up like I normally would so I can at least function properly. My job is ridiculously stressful lately. I feel like I'm the only one doing my job and I don't feel appreciated one bit. It's exhausting. I'm working tons of extra shifts and even worked 16 hours straight this week. I had applied for holidays at the end of the month (I have 7 days that I'm legally entitled to)...and up until this morning whether or not I'd get them off was a mystery. And I absolutely NEED them. Good news though: THEY WERE APPROVED!!!!!!! I will have 12 wonderfully blissful and hopefully restful days off!

Then yesterday, Chris and I went to WA state to get some groceries (ridiculously cheap groceries...we would have spent at least double in Canada), and when I got home there was a message from the doctors office on our phone. I have recently gone in for my "annual" checkup...You ladies know what I mean. The message simply said "Hi Taryn, we got some test results back that the doctor wants to go over with you, please call us back to set up an appointment". My heart stopped. Oh crap. A doctor never calls you back to discuss results if they're good. "Hey Taryn, great pap smear *high five*" just doesn't happen. So needless to say that I'm freaking the fuck out! I called first thing this morning and can't get in to see the doctor until WEDNESDAY!!!! Great...5 and a half days of worrying. I'm sure everything will be ok and it's nothing severely important or they would have had me in there today even if I had to see another doctor. So that's eased my mind slightly.

I was supposed to weigh in yesterday but just didn't cuz I couldn't take any more stress. I will be weighing in today but I'm really not expecting much. I know I haven't exercised very much (stupid work) and I definitely could have eaten better this week. But it is what it is. I'll post that later today.

Thanks for letting me get everything out. Check back later for a scale update.

Irritated...

I'm absolutely not loving my job right now. I love my residents to death and that's what keeps me going there on a daily basis. I would NEVER leave them. However...the company I work for is made up of major a-holes. Needless to say my holidays are up in the air and I'm about done with it. I'm absolutely exhausted and I NEED some time off. My patience are wearing thin and I don't like that. After everything I do for them...I get treated like shit...GRRRR!

The Shift That Wouldn't End...

Happy Tuesday everybody! I'm spending my Tuesday morning attempting to recover from my day at work yesterday. I had absolutely NO problem getting up at 5:30 to be at work by 7 (I need time to wake up in the morning, plus shower and tame my hair...I tell yah, curly hair is not this girls friend, so it gets straightened daily with no exceptions) as it was a stat holiday and time and a half is this broke girls best friend. Well I was on my coffee break and I got the call heard round the world...I got asked to work a double as the evening shift nurse called in sick and because everybody who knew they'd be off on Thanksgiving Monday planned to have their dinners that day so Isobelle (the scheduling lady) got told to take a hike by everybody and I was the last person left. Hmmm 8 hours overtime on a stat? Let me think about that for a second...UM HELL YAH I'LL WORK! I was however regretting that decision at about 10pm and I'd been at work for 15 hours. I was exhausted! Now, simply due to the layout of my facility, you do a LOT of walking...and are on your feet the entire time you're not on your break...So even though I did not get to work out...I certainly did not slack off.

However, because I was not prepared to work that long so obviously I didn't have anything for supper packed. So I sent a text to my man begging him to bring me Subway for supper (he had worked night shift and was heading in for his last night shift so I knew he wouldn't feel like cooking anything). He agrees and goes to pick it up...Subway was closed! WTF don't they know that a girl needs healthy food when she's working a 16 hour shift and is on a diet. Bastards. Anyways, Chris ended up going to the deli at the grocery store and got me a turkey sandwich and some yogurt. Crisis averted.

When I got home I collapsed into bed and slept soundly...so soundly that when I woke up I realized that my back had stiffened itself into what felt like a back made of hardened concrete. However after getting up and getting moving and a few stretches it feels much better. I hope everybody is having a great day and I'm hoping that next week I can get back to a normal routine. Can't wait for Zumba on Thursday!!! And I'm really hoping I go back to my holiday approval at work!!!

Happy Needless Turkey Murder Weekend!

Hello all my fellow Canadians...Happy Thanksgiving weekend! I actually hate turkey dinner (just not fond of the rich food) so it's not too terrible for me. However give me a scoop of pumpkin pie filling (no crust please and thank you) and a dollop of fat free cool whip and I'm a happy girl haha (yes I know this is not allowed on my plan...damnit). I'm headed to my in laws in about an hour or so to have dinner...not sure if my sister in law and her husband will be there...I hope so I miss them...and I am praying to the diet gods that my MIL has made at least something I can eat.

I must admit last night I may just have had a small nervous breakdown. I am just coming to the realization about how much going to university for 4 years has cost me (my student loans and bank loans took care of my tuition and living costs while I was in school and I did not have to start paying them back until 1 year after graduation...and that 1 year was up in July). But I've sat down, calmed myself down and realized that it's really not the end of the world. I may just have to work 7 days a week and sell my first born! Any takers?? HAHA. Juuust kiddin! But I am thinking the finances stress, mixed with work stress and not seeing the results I wanted to on the scale last week are the major contributors to the twitchy eye that has plagued me for the past 2 weeks. But in the grand scheme of things, I have it pretty good so I'm going to stop complaining and look on the bright side.

Tomorrow starts another work week and I have picked up an extra shift (only an 8 hour and no travel time thank goodness) and I'm hoping I go back to work with a "your vacation for the end of the month was approved" note in my mailbox. That would really make my day. I truly do love my job but one can only work with dementia and not have a break before she snaps...And I don't want to be sitting in the corner of the shower rocking back and forth before I realize I may need some time off. And I have BIG plans for my time off let me tell you! I plan on cleaning this house from top to bottom, giving away every single toy that isn't broken but does not get played with, throwing out every single toy that is broken and sorting, folding and storing all child clothes that are too small, going through my closet and bagging up clothes I don't wear/are too big and just getting rid of junk. I think a clutter cleanse will help calm me as well. We also have a bit of winterizing we have to do in the yard so that'll get done then as well.

Anyways, I have a dinner to get to so I must bid you all adieu...Have a great night everybody!

I WON!!! And I Walked!

I won another giveaway!!! Kristin over at And She Ran hosted a giveaway for when she graduated the C25K program (I think SHE should be the one getting presents for finishing that sucker though!) and I managed to win an awesome product from Lush! I will definitely post reviews once I give it a try! YAY super excited!

I had a super busy day today. I had to renew my car insurance, finish purchasing the items for my gift package for KateRN, got the final items needed to make chicken stirfry for dinner, went to the post office, handed in my vacation request form (yaaaaaay...I definitely need some time off work), then came home and cooked dinner...and in all of this I forgot to make the bed, which is a cardinal sin in our house. Ooooooooopsie.

When Chris got home we ate dinner (cuz I'm THAT good...I have dinner on the table when he walks through the door), I tried to make an excuse that it was too dark out to go for a walk, Chris whipped out a flashlight and off we went. We did our normal 2km walk and boy it's getting chilly out now. But definitely a welcome change from when we were walking in 30+ degree heat that's for sure. Once my dinner settles in my tummy a bit I may just head upstairs and do the 30DS.

Hope everybody is having a great day!!!

I'm Now Kicking Zumba's Ass!!

Hey all!

I had such a wonderful workout at Zumba tonight! I remembered the routines and knew what steps were coming before they were and was pretty much ON IT tonight! It felt great!!!! I took a friend with me who's this skinny little thing and she confessed to me that she was exhausted by half way through and I was just getting started. She said "I can't believe how fit you are!" which...I kinda laughed at because I'm not "fit" but I can handle an hour of high intensity exercise! And I think it's easier if you know what steps you're supposed to be doing instead of struggling to keep up and figure out the steps at the same time. I LOVE ZUMBA!!!!

I am having some difficulty with a twitchy eye though. The muscle under my right eye keeps spasming and it's driving me bonkers. Like every 2 minutes my eye twitches. Annoying. I really think it's stress and exhaustion. I haven't taken any substantial time off work since last January when Chris and I went to Vegas. I have a very thankless job for the most part, we're constantly...and I do mean CONSTANTLY short staffed...and it really seems as though management does not appreciate the hard work we've been doing (we just had a nursing staff cutback and lost 1 LPN shift a day, meaning us RNs had to step in and do that job along with our own...plus we had a wage cutback....pretty much ridiculous!). I love my job, I love my residents but I really really need to take some vacation time and relax. And that'll be happening shortly.

However, I do have something else to look forward to. I just bought a bunch of Halloween decorations and I'm suuuuuuuper excited. Halloween has got to be one of the best holidays ever! I love it. I can't wait to decorate. I would start tomorrow if I knew it wouldn't drive Chris nuts. HAHA. I'll be sure to take a picture and post it when I'm done.

Hope everybody had as good a workout as I did! Gnight!

Weigh In #9

So, no good news at all...gain of 2.4lbs (current weight 295.2lbs)...And I don't get it. I've eaten properly, and I've exercised. The only thing I can think of is that I'm still retaining fluid and because I had such a huge loss last week my body kinda hit the breaks. I'm PISSED! I don't even wanna talk about it.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway. You have until midnight tonight (PST) to enter and that's when I'll close it. I will put all the names in a "hat" and have Chris draw one (I don't know a fancy website and how to take a screen shot to post it so I'm doing it the old fashioned way).

Talk to you all later.

You Definitely Should Not Wait Until 11:30pm To Work Out

As you may be able to tell by the title of this blog post, I was a bad girl yesterday. I did NOT feel like working out at all. So instead I curled up with my comfy socks and watched a movie marathon (The Devil Wears Prada, Living Proof, and Julie & Julia). Side note: Watching Julie & Julia while attempting to watch what you eat...BAD idea. I wanted to dive through the screen and devour almost everything seeing it was all made with butter, wine, and cream. Mmmm. However, I ate my low fat quesedilla (recipe here) and behaved. But I digress. It was almost 11:30 by the time all the movies finished and I had yet to work out.

Now...I must admit this week I've been having a hard time with being motivated and have been having huge body image issues (hmmm could this be related to retaining a crap ton of fluid?). I've been completely uninterested in doing anything but curling up and being warm and snoozing. On Thursday when I got home from Zumba, I was so energized and even did the 30DS after Zumba...but since then I've just been BLAAAAAAH. But...Chris made me promise that I would do my workout yesterday. God I love him, he's so wonderfully supportive and just an amazing man to have in my life...and I'm not just saying that because he reads my blog.

Because I can't lie to Chris and I did promise I would work out. There I was at 11:30pm firing up the 30DS. I could have thought of about a billion excuses at that time of why I shouldn't work out. I mean who wants to be all sweaty when they get into bed (unless you've gotten sweaty IN bed...sorry mom). But I still did my workout, modifying slightly as, because I live in a duplex, I did not want my neighbors to think there was an earthquake! Now, here's the surprising part...the 30DS is getting EASIER!!!! I mean, I still hate doing the push ups..I just don't think that it's natural to use your arms to push your entire body weight up...even more unnatural when you're a heavy person!...but everything else was easier and I'm hardly sore at all this morning. YAY. That made me feel great. I work this evening and I will probably go for a little walk on my supper break. Gotta get this fluid off of me before weigh in day. Oi vey...

Have a great day everybody! And don't forget to enter my giveaway!!!

PS - Just watched Amanda Knox's murder conviction be overturned...What's everybody's reaction to this? Personally I do think she was innocent and am glad to see that she's finally able to go home.

Comfy Socks And Simple Things

I think that we all, but me especially, need to remember to take time to appreciate the simple things in life. Today after Chris left for work I was watching tv and because my house has a heat pump that actually does not provide heat...just keeps the house at a constant temperature...I was freezing. I went upstairs and slipped into my ever so comfy sweats and hoodie and slid my feet into a pair of Chris's wool socks. Something about the socks being too big and nice and thick and warm just felt ah-ma-zing on my feet. I actually stopped and took the time to appreciate how wonderful they felt. I then made myself a cup of tea and curled up on the couch to watch The Devil Wears Prada. Ahhhh pure bliss.

In other news I feel as though I'm retaining a ton of water. I just feel puffy. **TMI ALERT (especially for you boys)** Because I have an IUD in, I don't get my monthly "gift" from hell, but I do experience pretty much all the other symptoms. Yay PMS, bloating, cravings and exhaustion. Recently I've had to stop wearing my ring to work because my hands must have shrunk and my ring is really loose and I definitely don't wanna lose that sucker. Well I just tried it on and it fits like it used to...a sure sign theres some extra fluid on board. I guess I'm gonna have to guzzle gallons of water to flush my system out. That and like 19 sessions of the 30DS back to back...

Finally...Don't forget to enter my giveaway here. There'll be some great stuff in there...and perhaps something for a laugh or 2...C'mon you'd have to expect that from me. Just want to thank my wonderful followers for being there during every step of this journey so far (and will continue to be there for the rest of the marathon...at least you better!)

Have a great day everybody!!!

1 More Follower!!!

Most of you know that I plan on doing a giveaway once I hit 75 followers...seeing as how I'm at 74 I guess I better start planning that huh???

Today for me started at exactly 4:44 am when I was startled awake by the loudest clap of thunder and the brightest flash of lightening (even through blackout blinds!!!). I had 45 more minutes to sleep but then I was all neurotic and panicky that the power was going to go out. I'm sorry but I would NOT have survived before electricity. Showering in the pitch black and then doing my makeup by candlelight was NOT appealing to me whatsoever. And don't even get me started on not being able to use a blowdryer and hair straightener (for somebody with afro-curly hair...that's a BIG deal). So I layed there awake worrying about this happening until the storm stopped. I had juuuuuuust fallen asleep when KeSha began singing Tik Tok over my alarm clock and that famous 4 letter word that seems to always pop out of my mouth at 5:30 in the morning made an appearance. Only this morning it had about 6 "u"s...

Despite how tired I was, I actually had a very productive day at work. I got everything I needed to get done and more! I LOVE Saturday and Sunday day shifts...No management around = less stuff to deal with which leads to more time to get the stuff done that I don't have time to on a normal day shift. Was nice.

I am also coming to the conclusion that my dentist may actually be right about my wisdom teeth needing to come out. My one wisdom tooth (technically the gum over it) is soooooooo sore and it's not going away. Ah well...Unless he can find somebody who will do it while I'm completely knocked out he can go to hell! I'll deal with the pain!

Anyways, The same ol' same ol' is happening on the lifestyle change front. We'll see how it goes on weigh in day. I'm exciiiited....perhaps we'll hit that 25 lb mark the same week I hit the 75 follower mark. Ah...why can't I lose 1lb for every follower I have simply by having that person click the "follow this blog" button. That'd just be so much easier.

Hope everybody is doing great!!!
