Work makes blogging difficult

I was supposed to blog last week. I didn’t. I don’t remember why I didn’t other than I was super busy with work for some reason.

Getting used to working out while having a job has been interesting. Starting this almost 2 years ago, I had a full time job. I wasn’t as invested as I am now, though. I really got into everything when I didn’t have a job, and it was easier to do. To be fair, this isn’t that hard. What’s hard is having roommates that are overweight and not as progressed or invested as us. Especially since it’s very much a communal kitchen, I dislike having to cook “healthier” things for myself if the meal isn’t low enough calorie for me (which hasn’t happened too often). I feel like a dick or disrespectful or something. I know I’m not logically, but that doesn’t stop how I feel. What makes it hard is that I do not like feeling as if I have insulted someone. So, I’ve had to deal with that.

I have lost the weight I gained! Well, not all of it, just back at 227, but better than gaining again. I took my measurements last week and had gained a bit. That really upset me. Starting on Monday, I am going hardcore on everything. I increased my calories so that I could increase my exercise, and I haven’t increased my exercise much. So, on Monday, I will be starting 2 or 3 days of strength and 5 or 6 days of cardio a week. I will be going to the gym to do so every night after work. I need to tell myself “no excuse” again. Because I don’t have one. I will feel better doing it again, too. Also, I REALLY want to be under 220 when I go to California in a month (FOUR WEEKS) so that I can tell my step mother-in-law that I have officially lost over 60 pounds since the last time she saw me.

I’d post my measurements, but I am incredibly too lazy to go get them out of the bedroom.

Because I gained weight, I am still just under 20% lost. That annoys me.

I don’t know what else to post about other than work. I am still working out, though, admittedly, not as heavy as I should be, but that is changing. A lot of my life is work right now. I am being recognized there and that makes me happy. I am very much exceeding my own expectations of myself, and I am impressing people that I work for. Just can’t go to another department until I hit 90 days. That’s fine, though. That’s in just a month. :)

I guess that’s it. I miss talking online! I miss you all! Your support is what keeps me going, so please give me all you have! :D

    I’m very glad you like your job, and you pass expectations of yourself, and impress people:)
    On the food making: does everyone trade nights for cooking for the bunch, or do you just cook for you and chris and if the roomies want some they are welcome to it?
    I’m so very proud of you doing this, and really it’s motivating me too. Oddly enough, I feel semi-competitive, even though i know it’s not, (and shouldn’t be) a race.
    Keep doing what you’re doing, no excuses, and don’t forget to reward yourself for small, obtainable goals:)
    I also miss seeing you on line all the time. I miss having Twitter conversations 5 feet away from each other and your assistance in grocery shopping:)

      Food making is by ear, normally. They say, “Hey, we’re making this,” and I decide whether I will be eating it or not… It really hasn’t happened much, but I feel super douchey about “yeah, you eat that, I’m going to eat this very healthy, not that meal”…

      My job got WAY easier this week because they made it so we aren’t doing Billing anymore. I HAAAAAATE billing so much that I danced when it was official. In my cube. And wrote Chris like 7 emails about how awesome it was no matter what he was talking about. So, the job got better for me. :D I’m also told CONSTANTLY how good I am doing there and that they want me in other places asap… So that helps a lot. :D

      I MISS YOU. I cannot wait to see you at the end of October. :D
