While I was on this little hiatus, I ate what I wanted, did what I wanted and basically didn't give a shit about what I was doing. I expected to have a gain (on top of my massive gain) when I weighed in. However, I'm sitting right at where I was at 287.2. Phew...That makes life a LITTLE bit easier. Now it's time to buckle down. It's spring, finally, in Canada so I can actually go outside without the threat of freezing to death...but the possibility of being caught in a downpour is still very real...good thing I'm not the wicked witch of the west and I won't melt if I get wet!
Work is going great. I have been applying for jobs left right and center these days. I absolutely LOVE my job with my old people. They make me laugh and smile on a daily basis and the people I work with are amazing people...But I just don't make enough money there. They don't even have a full time position for an RN there so I'm stuck working about 30 hours a week only. We'll see what happens. It's not in my hands right now. At least I'm lucky enough to have a job. I know that there are lots of people who aren't as fortunate.
This week, Chris and I finally had some time to spend together. Grandma babysat the kid so we were able to have adult conversation! However, our time off was solely focused on the child...We redecorated her room for her! She is absolutely obsessed with Tinkerbell so...seeing as how she already had a bunch of Tinker stuff...we finished off the room. She has purple walls and a Tinkerbell mural on the wall. She also has some Tinkerbell curtains coming. Spoiled little kid! But let me tell you, I now realize just how much of a workout painting is. My muscles are stiff today and I definitely broke a sweat!
Tonight and tomorrow night I work with the baby and then on Tuesday it's back to work with my old people. I'm definitely living a busy life these days but that is not an excuse for slacking off on the things I should be doing. I owe it to myself to lose this weight. I want to be healthy and be able to do the things I want to do! I'm pretty sure Chris and I will be taking a trip to Vegas in November-December and I really really want to ride both the roller coaster at NYNY and the zipline over Freemont St. I will definitely have to be under 250lbs for that. And of course, riding in the airplane will be much more comfortable than it was at 316lbs! And of course walking around Vegas will be much easier on the body. Time to get to work!
