So, I've been thinking a lot recently. Like, a lot. Work has been slow, which is the perfect time to have think time! I'm pretty sure that blogging is a part of my life that I'm going to be leaving behind. I find that I'm not necessarily able to truly convey my thoughts, and that's not right. Maybe I'll go back to journaling, I don't know. But, I think this has to be the end.

It's been a good run. Thanks for tuning in, and taking part in my life. I appreciate all of the good thoughts that you have sent me over the years. Blogging has been a real treat for me!

I hope that you all continue to be well, and that life goes on in perfect harmony :)

Thursday already?!

It doesn't seem like it should be Thursday already. Where has the week gone?? I'm not complaining since this weekend is a long weekend for us in BC, but still.

I went back to the doctor yesterday for my hands. They are still aching really bad, even after 2 weeks of medication. Now I get to have a full month of medication. Lucky me!! I was told to be patient, that sometimes people have tendinitis for months. How can you be patient when you're in pain all time time?? The only thing that doesn't hurt is sitting still, which I can only do for so long before I go friggen crazy. I wish there was more that I could do. Anyone have any home remedies for tendinitis??

I weighed myself this morning - 203.3 pounds. I am so close to 10 pounds lost, I can almost see it!! I don't feel any different, but the fact that I've had to pull out my belt again does mean something. I'm going to see if I can fit into my 32 jeans this morning. That will really be a good sign. I've been thinking about the numbers a lot, and while I think it's good to have a number to reach for, I think the key is going to be how I feel. I remember the first time I bought size 29 jeans. I don't really remember what size I wore in high school, but after living in Cranbrook, I gained a bunch of weight and was in like size 32 or so. Then, when I lived in Kamloops, I barely ever wore jeans (because I HATE them - I only wear them now because I have to for work) so I have no idea what size I wore. My first 29 jeans were in 2007 when I was working as a delivery driver. Those were the best pants ever! I want to get back to those...and soon!

Ok, I better go, time to get ready for work.

Talk soon!

Sunday Weigh-In

Good morning all! And what a good one it is! I weighed in this morning at 203.8 pounds, which is 9.3 pounds down for the year! It's awesome! I've struggled so much in the past, so it's nice to finally see some changes. I've basically cut down on all of my portion sizes, and I've bern feeling great! Now to start working out!

Anyways, it's coffee time. Have a good Sunday!

Talk soon!

A Real Blog

Hello world! An actual blog today, not like my quick "I love you" to my sis!

What a week it has been. I don't want to go into any details, but I've had better. The only plus side is that I've lost some weight! I'm down to 204.6 pounds this morning, which is 8.5 pounds less than the 213.1 pounds I was at the beginning of the year. Can't complain about that! Now to keep it off. The only thing that I really hate is that 8.5 pounds is a lot, but it's not noticeable. I can't tell in my face that I've lost weight, but I can tell with my pants! I had to put a belt on this morning because yesterday it drove me crazy that I had to pull my pants up every 5 seconds. And the belt isn't even bugging me (yet)!

Work is a drag. One guy is away sick, so it's just me on the counter, and I'm still not really busy. That's how slow it is. My hands aren't hurting nearly as badly because of this, so that's a good sign, because I really don't want to have to take more anti-inflammatory medication because I have no need to feel that sick. The massage I had on Tuesday is still killing me too, so I really don't want to have to go back and have another.

The plans for Hawaii are in full swing. We're switching hotels, and the one I have found is so neat! I can't wait. It's only like 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach, and the International Marketplace. And, we're thinking about doing a 3 day tour, which will include Pearl Harbor, the Dole pineapple plantation, and an island hop to the Big Island to go to the volcano national park in Kona (I think it's in Kona anyways) plus a luau at the Polynesian Cultural Centre. And there's so much hiking and stuff I want to do; we are going to have a busy vacation! But I am so excited about it. I wish it was sooner rather than later though!!

Anyways, back to work. Fun fun fun!

Talk soon!

Still feeling rather blah. I'm hoping that today my body finally decides to be ok with my medication. Tomorrow I'm leaving after work for FSJ, so I have lots to do tonight. Can't afford to be sluggish! Last night, I came home, had a bath, laid on the couch for a while and ate chicken noodle soup, then went to bed at 7. Pretty sure I was sleeping by 8:30. So lame!

Anyways, today's another day. Payday was today for me, and surprise, surprise, it's already all gone! Tomorrow John gets paid, and it will be gone just as fast.

Time to get ready for work and have breakfast. Something light today!

Talk soon!

Working Out & Feeling Good

So, I've been thinking. And chatting with some co-workers. I am in so much pain these days, due to my hands. Stupid for someone of the nice young age of 26. It's so lame! But, I know, deep down, I know that working out, and being active will help with this. So, have I been active? Kinda.

BY is one of my co-workers. Poor guy has had a tough go at life. Lots of health issues. But, he has learned a lot over the years, and is a fountain of information, if you want to listen to it, and actually take something from it. We were talking today about my arms, and he made a good point. Exercise and being active helps your entire body by helping blood circulate better, which promotes healing in all parts of your body. Well, duh! Why hadn't I thought of that? So, I guess that's more proof that I need to keep my ass on my treadclimber! I need to listen to my body, but I need to get on there, at least once a day for half an hour - longer if I'm feeling better.

If you knew how long this took to type, you'd laugh. It's so tough! I have a massage booked for next Tuesday, so hopefully that will help, and hopefully the anti-inflammatory meds will kick in.

Right now, all I can think about is this pain. It friggen sucks. Consuming my life right now! Oh well.

I should get back to working...though I sure can't do much these days.

Talk soon!
