Happy Easter!

Sunday, April 20, 2014

So, I may not be blogging much. Or tracking my food. Or logging on to Spark. Or even working out. But I did hit a new "low" today. My weigh in this Easter Sunday is 138.8 pounds!

I haven't been working out because I got some weird cold thing that decided it was going to move down to my chest. It hasn't affected my eating really. Off and on I lose my sense of taste, and I have been craving warm soupy like things. But I still have been eating keto for the majority of my work week (Wednesday through Sunday).

So I guess the idea of eating one or two non keto meals a week is great one.

I actually recently read a study that came out staying that eating all keto except for one meal a week helps the weight loss process even more. I don't know if I am going to go ahead and eat a yummy non-keto meal tomorrow or not. All I know, is I am in desperate need of soup.

So despite all the stuff I have been lacking in, I am still on the right track. YEAH BUDDY!

I was really hoping to be able to workout on Monday and Tuesday this week (aka tomorrow), but I am still so congested I am blowing my nose non stop. I wonder once I get all the mucus out of my system if I'll lose another pound, because thats how much it feels like I have in my sinuses and lungs.

It hasn't move to pneumonia, but I do have something of an infection going on. I am constantly blowing my nose and trying to cough stuff up. Though the blowing the nose is far more productive at the moment.

I also have to go to work today. On Easter Sunday. It's not that I oppose working on Easter Sunday. My family is not religious and we gave up any Easter traditions after I graduated from college. But I have a feeling that not many adoptions, if any will occur today.

We had an awesome 20 adoptions on Friday. But yesterday, a Saturday, we only had 6. That's a good weekday number, not weekend end. And they all occurred at the beginning of the day. After about 1:30 or so, we were dead. Like super dead. Like I just made adoptions packets and talked to Jon for the rest of the day. We didn't even have any last minute holds put on. I have a feeling today is going to be worst. And no adoptions will occur.

Oh well. At least I'll have an easy "Friday" before my weekend.

Well that's about it for me. Hopefully I'll feel better tonight, and be right as rain tomorrow. And hopefully I'll continue to lose weight as fast as I have been. I still have a chance to feel comfortable in a bikini this season!

Have a good one guys!

Not My Day...or Week!

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Today was just not my day.

Having to go in yesterday, on Tuesday, my day off has really threw me off. My sleep is completely out of wack. I am messing up on very important things, like the Facebook posts (on the dates), and I just can't seem to get going. Or do anything right.

On the upside, I got all my paperwork to fill out tonight for getting on payroll. I filled it up the best I could, but I still have a lot of questions, and a lot of things I can't fill out.

My first official paycheck on payroll (not through a temp agency) is the first Friday in May. MAY! How is it almost May?

On a side note, another one quit at work. Totally understandable, but I loaned her ten dollars, so I guess that's out the window. Oh well.

I keep trying to eat keto and low carb, but it tends to go out the window around 8:30pm, and I realize the only thing I have had all day was a couple of pieces of lunch meat and a stick of string cheese. Thank goodness for Joseph's Low Carb Flax Pita! 8 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fiber, so 4 grams net carbs. I think that's a pretty good deal.

I know my weight will drop and I'll sleep better once I am back in keto. Just staying in it is the hard part.

Hopefully I won't go over tonight. And will sleep well. And won't get yelled at, at work tomorrow. And get everything done that I need to tomorrow.

I need a nap.

Have a good night guys!

    Stressful times like that can just make you feel nuts, can't they?
Would it help if you carried a little bit of food with you? Maybe one of those pitas, a little meat or a couple of hard-boiled eggs, a Tupperware with a little mayo or butter? Just a thought.
Hang in there! emoticon

    It sounds really tough, since you are so busy and don't have a lot of time for yourself anymore. That 10 bucks could have bought like 8lbs of pork butt! Man! I wonder if the slow cooker would be your buddy for batch protein, since you can just dump a bunch of stuff in there and forget about it? Keep at it! I am cheering for you!

Is It Nap Time Yet?

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

So today I went in to work.

On my day off.

Because the other person just needed an extra day.

That's fine. I really don't care. Everyone needs an extra day. But it would have been nice had I known a day or two ahead of time. Not at 9:10pm the night before.

So needless to say I didn't sleep well. I was a bit pissed that I had to go in on my day off. I didn't get anything I normally do on Tuesdays done. I had to do laundry last night because I didn't have my STAFF shirt clean. I didn't get any food done that I wanted to do.

Plus I didn't get to do my yoga this week. Or my two days of Zumba. I look forward to my two days off, and my Zumba all week long. Sucks that I only had "one" workout day.

But we are getting things together for getting me on to payroll and off the temp agency. Though I don't know how I feel about it now.

I also kicked myself out of keto yesterday. Worth it, but kinda sucks now that I am trying to get back into while working. I don't know if it will work though. I know being on keto helps, but it's hard to maintain when you feel like crap and don't eat anything.

I just wanted to let you guys know what's going on. I am still trying. But I'm not doing so hot. Everyday is a start over, but better to have a good day (and bad night), than bad all around....right?

Have a good one guys!

    It's good to hear from you! I think it may take a while yet to get used to your new schedule. I know you've been at it for a few months already, but it's a huge change for you!! I think the only& best thing you can do is just keep trying your best with the time you have, and eventually things will click :D Or you'll burn the place down, get arrested for arson, and have a lot of time for prison push-ups. I don't think you are an arsonist, though!

Monday Funday!

Monday, March 31, 2014

I am feeling somewhat better. Still sneezing, with a bit of congestion, and still coughing, but it's much better. And honestly, the congestion makes me happy. It's moving and not into my chest. Plus my coughing, has, umm, been "productive." Gross I know, but good in a way.

I am happy to report I ate extremely well on Saturday and Sunday. I even started testing my ketones levels again. Of course I know it will be negative for a while, so I was surprised when I showed trace levels of ketones last night. I kinda ruined it with a bit more chocolate than planned as well as some cranberry juice. But honestly, I need that cranberry juice more than I need to be in ketosis. I am super worried that I am getting a UTI. Ugggg, right?

I knocked myself out by this morning, which was okay. Plus my weight has already "dropped." I know it was mostly water and bloat weight, but still, nice to see that I am not 146 pounds.

I got slept in until 8:15 am this morning. Not my "normal" sleeping in, but I am happy it has become the norm. I can get a heck of a lot more done in my two days off now. I ordered some bags of the internet to help my boss' daughter's fundraiser. It just an online site that you can order nifty bags on. So I got two for new laundry hampers and one for my mom. It's a big canvas bag, just like the one she uses for work. I know it's hard to find those, and well she'll like it. I guess it will be a good Mother's Day gift.

I did my Zumba after that this morning. I am getting better and better at the songs that are more common. It's really fun, but I suffered a killer side stitch durning on of the songs. I had to pause and focus on walking and breathing for a few seconds. After that I did my Inhale yoga. And well, if you read my blog enough, you know that I ADORE and LOVE Steve Ross' Inhale. So that was fun.

After my workout, I got dressed and headed out to lunch with my dad. Usually I would plan this as my "free" meal of the week. You know, that one meal that you just don't care about what's in it or what it might do to you. But I am saving that meal for tomorrow, because low and behold my mom has off.

Unfortunately my dad suggested one of my favorite places, which as pretzel sticks. Like fresh warm soft pretzels. So that screwed me over. Then I ordered the duck wings. OMG, so AWESOME! Only I know that there was sugar in the sauce and it was probably battered with flour to make it so crispy. But boy was it good.

I am also due to start my period soon, which makes me think that I must be crazy trying go low carb now. Plus I need to make a cake for my mom that she has been wanting for a month now. Oh well.

I pretty much am thinking I have two months to lose some weight. Not a great limit, but I wanted to be "bikini" ready this year. Now that I can't wear a bikini now, but I know I wouldn't be comfortable. And though I am all for raising self esteem and body equality, and all that jazz....lets face it. I have some damn good reasons to want to be thin. And they are all (but one) health related.

I have come to the conclusion that I probably won't be were I want to be by the summer, but maybe by the fall or winter. I also realized my former goal of wanting to be around 20% body fat, might be too small for me. I think 23% is more accurate. I mean, I am a size 8 bottom, medium top and at a 35% body fat now.

I'll get there. But maybe not as fast as I was hoping.

Besides that there really isn't much to report. Work is work and still going well. I was suppose to be added on to payroll by now, which really sucks because now I will have to pay that stupid health insurance fine. Hopefully it won't be too bad because it will only be a month...hopefully.

Well, off to take a much needed shower and watch some recorded programs. Tomorrow will be a busy day as my mom has off. We are going shopping for me. I know I need it, and I know I won't do it unless she is there to push me, but I really don't want too. I need jeans though. And shoes. Grrr. Working = needing new clothes = sucking!

Okay, now shower time!

Have a good one guys!

    Glad you are feeling better!

Oh I know how you feel! There are lots of favorite foods of mine that if given the opportunity I will eat (but now little portions because my body would rebel if I stuffed it later on)!

I need new clothes too! Plan on checking out the thrift stores since I have 55 lbs more to drop to get to GW. The tops I have now I am swimming in emoticon Definitely need new shoes!

Sick Selfies and Cute Kitties

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Well, going back to work today was too soon.

Last night I actually woke myself up coughing. Looks like it is going around at work too. I wasn't the first to get it, but everyone else seems to be coming down with something in other.

I forgot that is one of the downsides to being in the world of the living. Sickness.

Oh well.

Time for some selfies with a cute kitty that came in today!

This is a good one of the kitty!



And this one, well I apologize. I look really sick (and thin, which normally I would be happy about, but I just look sickly in this one).



We got in four mama kitties with kittens all under a week old. Crazy kitten season is upon us.

So needless to say, my diet sucks majorly. Which makes me angry, because I know I would be losing if I did something about it. Grrr. This was going to be my year. The year I stopped losing for good.

Don't get me wrong, I love work, but it really does take a ton out of you. I am still getting the hang of it myself.

Well, that's it for now. Just wanted to show you all my sick stupid face, and the cute kitties!

    Aww, that kitty is adorable!

Don't get discouraged about your diet. The important thing is to get yourself feeling better! I had a terrible sinus infection for the past 2 weeks, and it made me exhausted. I hope you're feeling better soon!

Get well soon!
Alex

P.S. Playing with kittens usually helps you feel better instantly.
