I was driving to school this morning and while flipping through the radio stations I found that one of our local radio stations had already changed over to playing Christmas music 24/7. This is a few days later than what they have done in years past. They used to start on Nov. 1. Now don't get me wrong, I love hearing the music, just not at the beginning of November. It just reminds me that the holidays are creeping up on us!! Although on my way home as I was flipping through the stations, they were playing a song I absolutely love and I found myself listening to it and singing along!! I don't start listening to it until after Thanksgiving.
My daughter was really excited to hear that the Christmas music had started too. I also noticed that many of my friends had posted about this on Facebook and were excited about it too.
What do you think about this??

I've been dedicated on this journey since July and I've only lost 6 lbs, so I'm frustrated. I know that when I'm in school I might not have as much time as I had in the summer to dedicate to working out, but I'm really trying and am not seeing the results that I would like.
My goal is to lose 35 lbs total by March and right now that puts me at losing around 5.5 -6 lbs per month. I don't see that happening when I'm only losing maybe 2 per month. I need some help. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
On a happier note, I had an awesome day at clinical yesterday. I got to see three babies come into the world!! It was very exciting and it offset the fact that we are there for 12 hours.
I have a test this week so a lot of my time is being spent on that. I'm also working on a presentation for class as well.
Here are some goals for the week:
1. Lose 1 lb
2. Work out at least 120 minutes
3. Drink more water daily
4. Study for my test
I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for reading!!

I was busy yesterday, then I went to work, I forgot to log in yesterday, oops!!
I've been enjoying the last few days of my break. Today I went to lunch with a group of girlfriends. We went to Mongolian BBQ, love that place. I was very good about my food choices, I still had steak and shrimp, but I piled on the veggies. It was great to catch up with my friends that I haven't seen in a while. I made turkey chili for dinner, but I wasn't super hungry because of lunch so I only ate a little. It turned out pretty good.
Tomorrow I'm going to the movies with my mom to see The Best of Me. I'm a sucker for Nicolas Sparks movies. I love romance movies.
I got a pretty good workout in tonight. I just always worry that it won't be enough to make the scale move in the right direction.
I have my first clinical day on Wednesday. OB/peds is my favorite rotation so I'm looking forward to starting back up. Besides, I only have 21 more weeks of school total!
Here are my goals for the week:
1. Work out at least 90 min.
2. Eat within my calorie range daily.
3. Incorporate a new exercise into my workout.
4. Work on my math packet (I have a calculation test on Thursday!)
5. Drink enough water (I still struggle with this)
I hope that you all are reaching your goals. Have a great week. Thanks for reading.

Today's been another productive day. I dropped the dog off to get groomed (she was looking really bad!!), made it to the grocery store, I've done some laundry, made lunch and made some phone calls that I've been meaning to do.
I'm excited because I'm down another pound this week. I've had some great workout sessions this week and I'll work out later today.
I've been craving asparagus this week so I'm making chicken and asparagus for dinner, yummy!! Even better, it was on sale this week!! I'm a huge bargain shopper.
Tomorrow is my daughter's last competition of the year for marching band. She is playing at the Big House Invitational and will play the halftime show with a total of around 2000 students from other area high schools. The actual competition is after the game. Of course the weather will be cool and rainy. I can handle the cool weather, but I hope it stays dry.
I hope you are all having a great day! Thanks for reading.
