Hey all! Welcome to my first post! I think Monday's are a great day to start new things, so here I am starting a blog on Monday, hopefully starting a weightloss journey on a Monday... and next Monday I start school (again). Right now I am just waiting for a friend to come over with her baby boy, and hopefully we can have some backyard play time. I have the kiddy pool and chalk all ready to go! I tried to find the sprinkler, but I think we lost that the second day after we bought it.
We took my stepson out of day care for the summer so I will be watching him a couple days a week and he will be with his mom the other days. Today, I get to watch him, hopefully he will want to play with us in the backyard.
I am a manager/bartender at a restaurant. I have been doing this for 10 years... and now I am going back to school to become a nurse. I already have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Family Consumer Science Eduation. For those of you who know what that is... AWESOME!!! not a lot of people do... I went to school to be a HOME EC teacher :). Obviously since I am going back to school, that didn't work out too well.. only because I am the kind of person that doesn't like to take work home, and I make just as much at a restaurant without all the stress. I give teachers SO much credit with what they do, because I simply couldn't do it.
This blog will hopefully help me not only relieve stress by writing about my life, but also help me become motivated to become healthier. I am a hefty 223.4lbs. biggest I have ever been. (it doesn't help I get free food and free alcohol at my restaurant) My goal is 150. I am not giving myself a time limit. Right now, I just want to be accountable for what I am putting into my mouth and what I am/am not doing for exercize. For example today I at 1/2 chocolate donut, slice of pizza, corn dog, and a special k bar. (its only 1:11pm) this is why I weigh 223.4... not good! It's time for a change.
Well I think that is enough for now... it's time for some backyard fun!
