New Job Hunting

Yup, I said it. Im tired of my job! I had an awful day at work yesterday. I felt so overwhelmed and felt like I was being pulled in 5 different directions...I hate feeling that way. And honestly, I don't have too.

Yeah, its a 'good' job. Its close to my house and it pays ok. But the work load and stress level there is ridiculous. And it seems that every holiday my manager is gone. She's on vacation right now and its inventory week. Thankfully she's going to grace us with her presence on Tuesday, before the holiday weekend. 

So yesterday I took it upon myself to buy some resume paper and envelopes and tonight I plan on updating my resume and sending out at least 25 to local doctors offices. 

I also plan on going online to local hospitals and feeling out applications there. 

I'm feeling good about this! Really good... =)

Oh and I just got back from the gym. Did 30 elliptical and 30 legs machines. Yesterday was 30 mins elliptical and 30 mins of biceps, triceps, chest, shoulders. 

Eatings not so good, but is it ever? LOL. I mean im not binging so that's a step in the right direction. For some reason when I hit my calorie limit I feel as if im forbidden to eat anything else, and I've never been the one to stick to the rules. ;-)

I Joined a Gym Today!!

Yay!! This morning I went down to a gym that is 2.4 miles from my house and joined AND got in my first workout. I did the elliptical + legs.

Loved the gym. It was very calming - as soon as you walk in the door you can hear the blowing of fans and a radio in the background. There were mainly older people there today but everyone was very nice.

Its only 25 a month and its 24 hour access!! They're in the middle of remodeling  some area's with a private women's area and evening classes. I saw two heavy bag area's too.

 Very excited about it!

For the last three days I haven't had that diet pill and feel better. My appetite has returned but protein shakes are keeping it at bay. As long as I nibble every two-three hours on something im fine :) I'm keeping my cals close to 1500 a day...

ok..off to get some grocery's. Just wanted to share my news

Back To Logging My Calories

Lately I feel as if I'm a little out of hand with my calories. And as much as I detest counting them, it will help with my weight loss.

I'm back on Myfitnesspal tomorrow. I didn't count yesterday but just watched what I ate and today will be the same thing.

Ugh...weight loss is so exhausting isn't it? But I can do it...I know I can :)

About the Diet Pill 
Part of me wants to let them go but the other part of me knows that they kill my appetite. I started taking 1/2 a pill Monday and the side effects are just about gone. (I was feeling anxious and dizzy after taking a whole pill and this was at least 4x's a week. Just got fed up with it) They still help with my appetite.

And I think by taking half a pill it will be easier to come off them :)

I know a few people that are taking this particular diet pill. I asked how they were doing on it and one lady is losing weight like crazy but she isn't eating hardly anything. Another lady walks three days a week and eats around 1000 calories a day and she's losing pretty steady. But IMHO, anything below 1300-1400 calories is too low for a women, because then the body starts breaking down muscle tissue....and we don't want that! Of course I didn't tell them that...

I think whats stalling my weight loss is my workouts, but I can't give them up - I would go insane without them...
And I know the thought of my workouts stalling my weight loss sounds crazy but if you think about it, it makes sense. I'm lifting weights and my body is building muscle, there-for im not going to see any real change on the scale.  At least I think it is anyway but I've always believed that you have to fuel muscle in order to build it. I do feel a very slight difference in  the way my pants are feeling ... my muffin top isn't quite so bulgie anymore LOL

Ok..I'm mumbling know, Laters....

August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
