Light at the End of the Tunnel

Good Morning,

Today is work then I'm off for two days. Yay!! Finally a Sunday off =)  I plan on getting in a weight workout then possible a walk after work.

Weight Loss Update:::
So since i have been sticking to my guns pretty well I decided to step on the scale and sure enough im down 1.2lbs. This week I backed off from my weight training, only 2 days a week now - and I've lowered my carbohydrates by half( MFP gives me 202 a day and im eating around 100).  Its kinda tricky but im getting it. I'm just thrilled to see the scale move.

Oh and yesterday we went to a b-day party for my Niece and guess who skipped on the cookie cake? Yeah, THIS GAL :D

ok, gotta get ready for work. Have a great day.

Update 4/24/2014

Morning,

Im up early for work but I'm off tomorrow, yay! Hubby and I are suppose to go to yard sales tomorrow, can't wait to find some good stuff =)

So about my last post... I'm going to see if the bakery still needs me to work 1-8 today because I noticed that one of the cake decorators ( the one that everybody thought had quit) was back in the bakery yesterday. So hopefully my help isn't needed.

Yesterday I did some total gym for 30 minutes then we went hiking for 40 mins. We have been going hiking almost everyday this week, its so pretty at the park we go to and its right down the road =)

My calories were good yesterday and today. Feeling good about that and the scale showed my lowest weight this morning, so maybe I can see a loss tomorrow? I wish I would drop about 3lbs, sure would boost my motivation.  Tuesday I had my hubby measure me and some of those measurements had increased since my last, I was ready to throw in the towel when I saw that. Boy was I mad!!  I mean seriously? Why bother if I'm not seeing any results?
I woke up the next day determined as ever to stay on my calorie plan. I've got to be strict... I want to see some weight loss.

so onward I travel....

Medication update:
So I have an appointment with my doctor on Monday and I can't wait. I've got a lot of questions for him. First, I want to ask him if I could switch to the time released Wellbutrin. I think taking the 150mg in the morning is really screwing with my anxiety. I feel on edge just about every day and the only thing that helps is a low dose of Valium. Second, I've been talking to some girls at work with anxiety issues and they take Tranxene at night for anxiety and insomina and they love it! I want to ask him about prescribing it too me instead of the Trazadone ( I take trazadone at night for insomnia ) I like the Trazadone but all it really does is knock me out and I wake up groggy the next day. Perhaps I won't with Tranxene? And its for anxiety, trazadone is for depression.

Have a great day =)

Work Update

Morning,

I'm up early for work, blah. And speaking of work...there are some interesting events unfolding.

So, if you've been reading my blog for a while then you know all the work drama in the Bakery? I started off as a part-time closer and with-in 6 months I was the assistant manager. For about 2 years everything was great, but suddenly I started really hating my manager. So bad that cried everyday. I quit because the Manager was hard to get a long with, the store manager hired me back as a deli clerk back in November of 2013.

Meanwhile the bakery has been slowly falling apart, particularly these past few months. Nobody wants to work over there...so three people have transferred out and one decorator has quit. The Bakery Manager is leaving in June, she's moving to Florida, so they've been training this older lady ( the donut maker) over there for her spot. I don't think its going too well because the store manager approached me yesterday. He basically told me about whats going on, he wants me to work over there a couple of days a week to help with production. He also mentioned that if the lady that's training doesn't work out, then he wants me to give it a go.

I told him I would think about it. I also told him I have really bad anxiety and I don't need to be under any pressure or stress. I also told him that I'm taking medication for it ,he already knew I had anxiety ( I guess the bakery manager told him) and he said for me to take my medication and I would be fine. blah blah

sigh, what do I do?

When I told my hubby he said 'really?' then he pointed how I would be full time and make more money. I would have a set schedule and be off every Sunday.  He said that I always talk about missing the bakery and how I kinda wished I would have handled things differently, this could be my chance to make it right.

I still don't know if I want it. If anybody is reading this...I would appreciate a honest opinion. =)

Monday Update

Morning =)

Its Monday and I'm off work. Yeahya!! Yesterday was busy ( as I predicted) and I was swamped.

Medication Update
So today is day # 14/15(?) on wellburtin and I can feel it starting to kick in. My mood has leveled out these past three days, I just hope it continues to improve. It does change how I feel about food, I can see how people would lose weight on it. But I intend to keep eating the way I have been for 69 days and can I just say how extremely proud I am of myself? I mean, 69 continuously straight days of logging my food. I honestly didn't think I could stick to it for this long. Its such a rewarding feeling (regardless of how much weight ive lost)

*happy dancing*

Well, I just wanted to pop in and update my blog. Gotta go ...
