Weigh in Wednesday back to Work

Day 2 of being back at work and things are going well. I was hella tired yesterday after my first day back but so worth it.  I missed all my kiddos and they actually seemed to miss me too :) I must be doing something right.   It was also great to be able to celebrate my birthday with my friends we go all out for birthdays.  Since I'm stuck at the desk for a few weeks still they dressed it up for me today.

Today's weight is 173.6 SWEET!!!  I am actually down quite a a bit.  I've been weigh myself everyday (as usual) but not really keeping track, which is getting me nowhere fast. 

Seeing as today is my actual birthday and  I only have one more year left of my 30's (today is the big 39) I want to kick ass and come flying into 40 with a bang and looking and feeling the best I ever have so that gives me one year from today!!  So the goal is to get my act together buckle down and make some progress.  I want/will lose 30 more pounds or get into a size 8/9 which ever comes first.  Ultimately size matters most to me (that's what I said lol). So I will pay more attention to that but I'm also not going to kid myself and say the scale doesn't matter cause we all know I'm a scale whore. Yup said that too.  

I have to share my outfit from today, besides the whole new makeup kick I'm on I've also tried to bring in a little more fashion and accessories. So I have stepped up my game at work since I'm in the office instead the the class (my clothes are in less danger of permanent damage). It so funny the parents keep teasing me that it looks like I was at club med and not having surgery lol I wish.  

Please don't mind the dirty mirror ewww... Or the sign hahah 


Too Much Free Time

  • I have had entirely too much free time on my hands, and do you think I would blog with all that free time... no... cause I am a bad, bad, blogger but really it's because it's been very boring around here and there has not been much to write about that is unless you would like a full recap of the last 2 seasons on Shameless. 
  • Besides watching marathons of Shameless I've been spending a lot of time on YouTube.  There is a whole other world out there and some of it is kinda scary... but then there is some pretty fun stuff to like make-up tons and tons of make-up tutorials.  So of course what happened I got hooked lol.  I have always loved make-up and stuff but I never felt I did the best job applying it.  So with all this free time I started watching and practicing.

  • Here is a green eye look I did not bad really and I even got a compliment at Target about it :) It's actually been pretty fun and I'm getting the hang of it, making it look good.  I also found this super awesome woman Marlena.  She is the founder and CEO of Makeup Geek  a cosmetic education website and upstart makeup brand, but she has also lost a ton of weight and talks about both things on her blog Simply Marlena and on her YouTube channel  (check it out here)  She seems so down the earth and real and I loved watching her videos, also she has super cute style, that I can totally pull off!!

  • I even went I painted ma nails.  I don't do it very often cause it always seems to chip but I researched and think I found a good combo of base and top coat that so far has seemed to keep it nice for almost a whole week...I'll take it. I'm not into the "fake" nails  one. I'm allergic to the acrylic kind  and two. I like the gel ones but I can't see spending the money  to keep it up.  So we'll see how the at home manis will work for me.

  • I got in the see the Dr today to finally get my staples out, the drain was removed last wed but the staples needed to stay in a little longer.  But finally it's all done, and I am able to go back to work with the limits of light duty...no lifting over 15 pounds and NO exercise at least for 4 more weeks.  He wants to make sure the abdominal mesh is healed and good since it's much bigger that planed.  But I can walk and lift small weights (as long as it's not over 15 he says) but nothing high impact or heavy.  I'm a little bummed but I will listen I di not want to have to go back and have it fixed and start all over.  So I see a lot of walking in my future .  
  • I'm actually pretty excited to go back to work tomorrow I have missed my girls, and my kiddos. This has just proven to me even more that I could never stay home.  I just need to be out and about.  Don't get me wrong if you are a stay at home mommy/wife more power to you.  It's hard freaking work and kinda lonely as far as my experience went, I think that's why I couldn't do it, and maybe the fact that I really couldn't do much in the way of cleaning and organizing.  That probably would have made the time go faster and I felt I got things done.  


Zombies, Sister Wives, and Fairytales

  • Howdy all... sorry I've been MIA but remember when I said I was watching T.V like it was my job,  yeah well lets say I turned into a workaholic.  I blew through seasons worth of Once Upon a Time (great show for this Disney girl), Top Chef (yumm), Walking Dead (oohh zombies), and Sister Wives (?I could use a few of those right now?).   This has pretty much been it the last week.

  • I will admit I have got on the scale it was not what I wanted to see 178.9 but I hoping like really really hoping it has some thing to do with lots of fluid retention (I look like I have a beer belly) and this drain thing.. ugg. 3 more days till this sucker is pulled oh crap now I scared my self.  I am eating fairly good I would love to say I was eating perfectly but I would be lying.  A lot of it has to do with boredom.  Though zombies and multiple wives are entertaining I can only take so much at a time, and I have been stuck at home for the most part so it's hard not to want to munch.  A good thing though is I actually have very little "junk"  but I have found a few strays (choc chip cookies hidden in the back of the freezer).
  • I did get out for a walk a finally.  It was very slow going and the Hubs was totally against it but I told him if he didn't let me he would regret it later (I can be a big ol' pain in the ass) and I NEEDED this... like Jack needed a life preserver (10 points to anyone you gets that).  I walked the big block of my house, almost a mile then since I was so close walked up and down the street to make it a full mile.  It took just over 30 minutes I told you it was slow as shit....but it felt AWESOME!!  This is pretty much the only thing I can do right now and even then I was feeling it the next day so I'm trying to take it easy and only do every other day or not quite as long.

  • Besides being an awesome Bruno Mars concert with some football thrown in (if you can call it that) Sunday was the Surf City Half Marathon.  This was the first half I ever ran ...one year ago.  As I was sitting there Saturday night I was remembering that one year ago I was laying out my running gear, I was getting super nervous and flat out scared, but that day turned out fan-flipping-tastic.  I proved to myself that if I work hard I can accomplish anything.  So this year was bitter sweet.  My girls Barbie & CareBear (plus a ton of other friends) I know were running this year and I was stuck home *tears* and the kicker I couldn't even go and be there to cheer them on.  As I was sitting there try to passive aggressively try to talk the hubs into taking me in the morning an Idea came to me.....TADA  

  • I made a bunch of these signs and took pictures.  Then I woke up and text my girls, who were running late pfftt... not if I was there (and I told them that...and they agreed lol) but I was able to live track them and since I knew the course I text them the pictures at certain mile markers and durning the tough parts (ie the little hills).  They loved it and I felt like I was apart of it though I wasn't there.
