Setting a Positive Mind Set

Good Morning,

Im up early to sip my 1/2 decaffeinated coffee before work. I've got a few things going today so my anxiety is up a little. First I have work for a few hours then there is a job fair for a local warehouse that's opening it's doors soon and I plan on checking it out. Who's knows...maybe they will start off more then what im making?
I also have a funeral to go to around 1ish. My husbands uncle passed Thursday and it was very tragic - his family is having a hard time so prayers are appreciated.

I mentioned in my last post that this week has been a small step back on my weight loss journey. It was spring break for the kids and I took the week off too. My calories were over everyday but we were very active this week so I'm hoping it balanced it all out for me. I've got to get back on track today - the first few days are always the hardest for me ( I was suppose to start back yesterday)
 Bottom line is that losing weight is my #1 priority right now. Today I will focus on getting back on track - staying with in my calorie limit. I also need to get in another weight workout sometime this evening.

I also mentioned on my last post that I asked my doctor to call me in some wellbutrin. Im so reluctant to start taking this pill, like with every antidepressant, you just never know how it will effect you. And the experiences that I read online are so widespread? One person will love it, one person ended up in the hospital after one pill...I just don't know. I would like to start taking it when I don't have to work...but thats not until next weeks schedule which starts on a Wednesday. I'm not starting it today, thats for sure. I will keep ya'll updated on it =)

ok, off to pack my breakfast and get ready.

Day 52 update

Morning, or afternoon.

I just finished a 40 minute power walk, its pretty humid out today and I was sweating.

I've been off work this whole week with the kids and hubby for spring break and it seemed to fly by. I wish we could have went out of town somewhere but just couldn't afford it. We hung around the house, went on several hiking trips and watched movies at night. It was a nice, relaxing week =)

My eating could have been better - we ate out 3 times this week - but we also hiked 3 times and I did 3 total gym workouts. I don't really see a loss in weight this week but I don't see a gain either. Just a maintenance week I guess...

Tomorrow its back to work. I'm kinda looking forward to getting back on a schedule.

My depression has been off and on for the past few weeks. I finally gave in and called my doctor yesterday. he agreed to let me try Welbutrin and called in a prescription for me. He's going to start me on 75mg for 10 days then bump it up too 150mg. I just hope it helps with the just never know with all these medications now.

Really nothing new to report besides that. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Sunday Update : Day 47

Good Morning,

Its early right now, around 5:20, im up to get ready for work. I can't wait until quitting time today - I requested the week off to be with my kids on their spring break. Im sooooo ready for a break from work.

Yesterday I did great on my plan. After work I came home and did 30 minutes on the total gym then 25 mins of Cathe kickbox. I was whooped after that. The total gym was burning me, I was feeling every exercise I did. I think it was because my body was tired from work?  Then Cathe's KB really helped with the aggression I was feeling LOL. I had a few aggravating moments yesterday  ( to say the least)
Today will be some cardio after work and I have a feeling Im going to need it, Sundays are pretty stressful, specially if I'm cooking.

I peeked at the scale and im up 2lbs, not too bad being that im on my monthly visitor and I allowed a free day and a higher calorie snack the next day =)

I'm feeling good one day at a time. I had some sad moments this week but I didn't dwell in them. I know they are just feelings and they will pass. (for those who don't know - I've been struggling with some depression over the past 2 yrs)


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....
