Lots of changes going on!!

Wednesday, August 05, 2015

Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing well. It's been a really long time that I've been able to blog.

A lot is changing around here. First of all, I've graduated, taken and passed my nursing boards and have accepted a full-time RN position which I will start in two weeks. I'm very excited to go back to work full-time. Although I have to say it's strange not getting ready to go back to school right now. I will start completing my BSN program in January. My husband will be losing his job at the end of this month, but he has some job prospects so hopefully something will come from that. We were given plenty of notice of his job loss, so we have been able to prepare. With me going back to work full-time, all is good.

It's been a good 8-9 months that I've worked out. School got really crazy and, of course, something had to give. I jumped on the scale this morning and I've gained 6.5 lbs since the last time I weighed myself (I don't even know when that was). I knew that was my cue to get moving again. I don't have studying and life taking over to hold me back this time!! My son is also going to be going through this with me as he has some weight to lose as well. I want to set a good example for him so he hopefully will stick with it too.

We started out slow today. We took our dog for a walk around the neighborhood. I attempted to track our walk on my fitbit but I forgot to push the start button!! Oh well, live and learn. At least it tracked my steps!! We definitely wore the dog out, she's still passed out on the kitchen floor!!

I always appreciate any support and encouragement. If you would like to cheer me on, I'll gladly return the favor.

I hope you all are having a great day! Thanks for reading emoticon

    That's not too bad of a gain! You've always had a lot on your plate and you're right, something has to give in those types of situations. I'm glad you're back on and very happy for you about your new job! Sorry your husband is losing his, but at least he had the warning and has some prospects for new jobs so hopefully he'll get one pretty soon!

    Sounds like you and your son are off to a great start! emoticon emoticon

    Life is really good at getting in the way. It is super hard to find time to exercise between school work and more work. I get being busy.I work 62 hrs a week before having homework to do. So the motivation is out the door. Glad ur back at it!

    Congratulations on passing your boards. You sure have been busy. Now that things have calmed a bit for you I bet you will get back on track again. Just take it a day at a time. It's a life style change so will take time. Nice to have your son doing it with you! On going just plan your meals and pack healthy things to take to work. You can do this!!! Lots of people will be cheering you on I'm sure. Take care.
