So cold....

BRRR! It is cold here today! Well, not cold like it was back in Illinois cold (where I'm from) but colder than it has been the past few days! We generally leave the windows open year round in the house because we live in a second floor apartment and have no control over the heat. It's an old apartment what can I say. I so did not want to get out of bed for anything today. In fact, BF's alarm went off at 6, he shut it off and we went back to bed, his phone rang at 6:15, he answered it we went back to bed, MY alarm went off at 6:30, I reset it for 7, went back to bed, his alarm again went off at 6:45, he shut it off, went back to bed, finally decided to brave the cold at 7. lol. Don't normally do that by any means. Usually whenever one of the alarms goes off (mine on days I decide I'm going to get up and work out, or his on the other days), I'm up and at'em! But not today!

So I'm at work and it's a pretty blah day so far. Gonna be slow because there's only one hygenist and the Doc today. Days like that are slow, especially in the mornings. Hygenists have 50 minute appointments, and in the mornings the Doc usually has at least 1 or 2 crown preps which are 70 minute appointments. If the phone isn't blowing up you can imagine it's pretty dull up here for the time that both appointments are going. So I've decided I'm going to work on my homework for the week. Maybe between now and Thursday I can get it done. Leave the whole weekend open to getting some stuff done that needs to be done. Like I need to really deep clean the rest of the house. I did a pretty good cleaning this weekend but I didn't dust, or stuff like that. Since my mom's coming in February I better get that done. She'll yell at me if there's a layer of dust as thick as what's on the tv now. lol. You can tell how often the tv gets used in my house...>.> I also need a haircut...I AM GROWING WINGS! lol. I hate my hair sometimes >.<

I was OP yesterday. I used all but a couple of my points. I'm having difficulties getting in all the healthy guidelines per day. Not so much when I'm off work, but on workdays. When I'm off work I have more time to cook, which results in better overall meals for me. But on workdays the only real "meal" I get is dinner, and then it's not normally cooked in oil (they suggest 2 tablespoons of "good" oil like olive oil a day). I also am having a rough time getting in fruits and veggies. I don't have time to eat here at work. If I even thought of snaggin' a fruit to eat you know the phone would ring or someone show up so I wouldn't get to eat it. I barely can get in 1 bottle of water while at work. I usually drink the majority of my water when I get home from work.

It's just little kinks I need to work out. And I'm unsure how to go about doing it.

Anyway I should get to doin' that homework. Post more later.



  1. I'm glad it's relatively mild here. I couldn't deal with the below zero temperatures that many have been experiencing.

    Congrats on your weight loss so far. I can't take the cold. It looks like you are making healthy choices... right on!

    How's it going with giving up soda? I tried and didn't do too hot.

  2. Going well on the soda. It's been over 2 weeks now. My biggest hurdle I'm trying to deal with now is the whole migrane issue I've always had. Before a can of soda and some tylenol or advil would take care of it if I caught it soon enough. I can't fall back on that now.

    But all in all I really haven't craved soda. I might have a sprite when I go out to eat next week when my mom comes to visit but since it has no caffine I don't have to worry about it. :)

    Anyway, glad to see you are back, missed ya!


  3. I'm glad to hear you are doing so well with the soda. I was hoping that you weren't having any problems with it. It really will make a huge difference. I know the stuff is poison, but I'm hooked for now, but not forever.

    I'm glad to be back too. :)
