Hard day @ the office

Yep this is what I wanted to do a few times today. Frustrating! My job, can be so frustrating at times. I schedule jobs to be done for customers. I want them to get done for customers. I like to have good customer service. I like being there for both the crew & the customer. I don't like it when there is this total disconnect between the system. I don't want to be the missing link I want to be a fluid system. Maybe thats my problem I care too much. I always have. When I worked as cashier taking payments I stressed when we had long lines and I tried to speed up and go faster because I myself waiting in line would want a cashier to do that. I always try to put myself in the customers shoes. I think sometimes people in the business I work in think they've been there for sooooo long that it doesn't matter they have a job, they can do whatever.

So I've had a hard day. Stressful I feel like pulling my hair out at some of the responses I've heard from the people I with today. But its all part of the job. Don't get me wrong not all jobs are peachy every day. Can't complain. It pays the bills plus some...

Going on vacation soon, only have 1 day left of work then I have 9 days work free!!!! Get to go see my Lil' Sis and the beautiful city of Seattle which it shouldn't be raining now. hehehehe :D
I am then going down southern CA to visit some WOW friends. My sis and I have some plans. Well I have want to get my nails done. Pedis & manis! I want to go to this restaurant I seen on food network. On Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
So the place I want to go is Voula's Offshore Cafe

I also want to check out Bainbridge island you have to take a ferry across to get there. I have tried to go there twice now. This time I am going to make it. REALLY!

Lost again...

I believe my hike on Sunday had something to do with it! Or at least helped. I lost another 3 pounds. Boy am I loving WW's. Why did I never do this sooner. Well I guess there is always a time a place for everything...right? I mean you have to come to a realization in your life and its different for everyone, if its a addiction to food or drugs or alcohol.
Well I am done. I am so done with being unhealthy and I am on this path of healthy living. I have chosen this lifestyle. Its kind of hard though, not saying by any means its easy. You can slip up & beat yourself up over eating and be back gaining again all over.
It all psychological. Or at least for me a big part of it is. Its not always about the food.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVE some foods. But there are so many games I play with myself. Its ridiculous at times. Its a struggle. I wonder if other people go through this too. I wonder do other people think about these dang choices this much too?

I have so much to do before I leave I feel like I will never get it done. Its crazy at work! UGH :)

Been awhile...

Since its been like a week I have a lot to talk about. First I spent the day at a convention for Homeowner Associations. I know weird huh? I am on the board here @ the townhouse Steve and I live in. There are so many interesting things you can learn by going to those meetings. I just learned all these new laws and about amendments just passed previous on laws. Its crazy about all this stuff you need to know or should know being on a HOA board. Wow the insurance needs to be covered for lawsuits alone is just nuts!!! At 1st I was upset I wasted a Saturday to go this convention but I guess it was a good idea for us to go. I mean having as many board members certified is in the best interest for the HOA as whole. If I wasn't on the board and just lived here I would think it was a wise way for my dues to be spent. Knowing that my HOA members were update on what was going on with CA law.

Anyway work is going pretty great! I am totally loving my job. I love most the people I work with...or for I guess I would say. I schedule the gas & electric crews. I think I said that before. The small 2 man crews only. Its fun in a challenging aspect because I feel like I am needed and people value me. Its nice to be busy but not tied to a cash register in front of customers...does that make sense...I am busy in such a different way!

I am going to go visit my sister in 1 week. I am so excited. I am going to see her from Sunday - Friday so June 29/July 4 then fly to Burbank and stay down there for 4th of July weekend and drive home on the 6th. Steve will probably drive down on the 3rd to visit Bryan and Chandra earlier. We haven't seen them in so long. I think almost a year. I think their going to freak when they see me. Well with me losing so much weight.

That reminds me the lady at the Mongolian BBQ restaurant said " Oh my what happened to you" - refering to my weight loss. Its rather nice to have soooo many people noticing all the time now. It kind of makes me blush.

I know I need to post some need pictures. I will I will I need to get some taken when I am up visiting my sister.

OH in other news my walk is super close only 21 days away now...

My Avon Walk For Breast Cancer

Um who knew

That changing all this blog stuff took so much time and effort.

All I wanted to do was change the background because I was getting bored with my old one. Well When you go and get a background from somewhere they mark it all up with their logos. Which I get. Yeah they want credit. After all they worked hard on it. That being said since I never went to school for computers or html I just had to pick random stuff. I think I'm getting a better grasp at what you can and can't erase or it won't work. I changed some of things on my blog.
Thats why mine is purple & pink. I like to be funky and um yea!

If this came in purple it would have been ideal but you know.
Anyway. I can't figure out if I can change the graphic to purple yet. Anyway I changed some of the colors of the other things too.

But once you change the layout then I had to go back and re-enter all my add in stuff again which seems a little ridiculous. Why isn't that all just saved on to the sides and stuff. Its kind of stupid. Well since I had to go change it anyway. I added some new songs and changed my music player a little its kind of cute. It has a picture in it now.

Yea I am a dork so what.
Still working on this blog which is crazy. Its just journal of my life not suppose to be so important, right?
Oh well its almost done now.

I am in the 230's

Ok I know my posts are always about my weight loss. Its what I am most proud of right now. Its such an accomplishment. I never thought I could do it like this when I started. Weight Watchers is WONDERFUL. Yeah I am a commercial for them.
So I can see small changes in my body every day. It seems like my stomach is getting smaller. I can't wrap my head around not eating as much sometimes. Its so weird because it just seems like I should eat more. I try to think like I am eating similar to a "thin" person. I only need FUEL for my body.
I went jumping with Wendy today. Trampoline Aerobics. Wow its such a killer going back after about a month of not being there its brutal. But I am glad I went. Its like I am soft though from doing Aqua Aerobics. Like it isn't as strenuous :) I know its totally helping though and strengthening because I could do 25 push ups today. When I 1st start jumping I did like only 5 and by the 5th my arms were shaking. Today it took till 25! So it is making me stronger. Obviously whatever I am doing is working for now. Because I am still losing weight pretty well. I am excited and still motivated to keep going.
I can't wait till I've lost more weight then I still need to lose that is going to be an awesome day & one awesome feeling!!!
