Holy crap. I have been so busy, it’s rediculous! I’ve been working like crazy. I’m still at the housekeeping job, I wanted to wait until I actually started at my new job before just up and quitting. But I put my notice in like a good girl, and my last day is officially Friday.
To give you a hint, two days ago I worked 10 hours. The day before then I worked about 17 hours between the two places. I literally have only had enough time to sleep and hang with my family for an hour or so.
I’ve been so busy, I’ve missed last week’s weigh in…obviously. So today, I made a point to weigh myself. But before I get into that I wanted to mention something kinda quick about my new job!!!!
I am now working with people who have developmental disabilities. I obviously can’t get into too much detail due to confidentiality issues…but I do believe I am safe enough to be able to tell you all that I absolutely LOVE it.
I’ve always been that kind of person who has wanted to actually help people, possibly that’s why I am planning on teaching… but this is awesome.
It’s a great feeling. Of course I have only worked there a couple of days so far, but I’m already excited at the possibilities.
I’m even planning on taking a sign language class, just in case I get transferred somewhere that could be helpful.
Yeah, I can’t go into too much detail, but I already like it. Both my sister and Josh have said they haven’t seen me this happy coming home from work in a L-O-N-G time. Which is a good feeling.
On the weight loss area of my life. I haven’t been working out. This time I honestly haven’t had the time to exercise (unless I wanted to give up sleep. haha). But things are going to slow down once I’m officially out of the housekeeping gig.
So…back to my weigh in day.
Last week: 186.6
This week: 188.2
Total GAINED: 1.6 pounds
Well, shucks. I’m not entirely sure how that happened. I’ve been eating pretty good, at least I thought so. I’m feeling like blaming it on the lack of activity level. If I’m eating right…that seems like the only thing that makes sense. I’m not about to blame anything on bloating or water weight either.
I wasn’t expecting to see 188. I was actually kind of hoping for 184…185 at the very least.
I clearly have to change something. Obviously. I’m just trying to figure out what I am going to do. I’ve been trying to figure out the whole schedule thing figured out. Sure “Nicole, you’re over thinking things again”… yeah yeah. I know. But I work better with schedules. That could be the problem why I haven’t been doing exercising before. I haven’t scheduled it before…therefore I don’t do it. If there is a schedule in place for myself, then I’m more apt to actually do what I’m supposed to.
In this case, obviously it would be exercising. I’m just trying to figure it out…yeah. Although, I’m going to get on that right when I hit publish on here. So tomorrow I may bore you all with the details, because I’m determined to figure it out now.
Just got to make sure what I’m doing and when…general idea of course. Nothing like 8am do this…9pm do this… you know. More of a general kind of thing, simply because my work schedule is so chaotic…and I’ve got school coming up.
But I’ll get it all figured out.
Anyone else out there work better with schedules? Has making an “exercise schedule”??? How has it worked out with you?
