Lvl 1, D4 of JM30DS

I'm now on Day #4 of Level 1 of the Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred DVD. I've incorporated that into my weight loss journey. I'm hoping to stick it out for the full 30 days. I've started it a couple of times before and always seemed to give up. I'm going to try my best not to this time. There isn't much for me to report as far as my weight loss goes. I took my measurements today and right now my hips are 38 in. and my waist is 31 in. I currently weigh 137 lbs. I'm just doing what I can to stick to a sensible diet and exercise program. Here's to hoping...

Back to the journey..

I've started and stopped my journey to a skinnier me so many times over the past few months. It's been hard but I jumped back on the wagon last night and, this morning, I've eaten a little better. I didn't go over 400 calories for breakfast which I'm proud of. Today is my first day off from BOTH of my jobs in 10 days... I think. I'm enjoying it but I have to get up and get going soon. I have several things to do today. I just wanted to make a quick note that I have restarted(again)my weight loss journey. Wish me luck!

1st job, 2nd job... yes please.

Next week may mark the first week in my journey into having 2 jobs instead of just 1. Some might say I'm crazy, some might understand. I, for one, justify it by saying this:

I have a future to plan for. I have bills that need to be paid off. I have a wedding to save for. I have a down payment on a house to save for. I MUST do what I have to in order to make these things happen and if working 2 jobs will further advance that, then so be it. Thank you.

So, if things go right with job #1 (they have to be willing), I will demote myself as Shift Mgr. down to Crew/Cashier and pick up with being a full-time convienence store clerk with the company I worked for when I was in high school. I think I will be happier working there full-time verses working fast food full-time.

Well, those are my plans. We'll see how that works out here soon.

I haven't updated in forever. Although, there isn't much for me to tell. I got a job working at Zaxby's. It's not what I wanted but my unemployment was running out and I had to do something to pay my bills. So, for now, it will do. I've been there going on 4 months but soon, I will be starting another new job at Mapco. I'm hoping the manager at Zaxby's lets me drop down to just a couple days a week. (Maybe my off days with Mapco? Who knows.) I really need the extra cash for bills and in the near future, wedding and house expenses.

So for those of you that were following my weight loss journey. I'm sad to report that it's at a standstill at the moment due to stress from work, and just lack of time. I know, I know... those are no good excuses but, it's the truth. Maybe one day I will get back into the swing of things. I'm hoping to start updating on here a little more than I usually do.

Until next time...
