Losing weight

get-attachment.aspx, originally uploaded by lizzyc816.

I started the Atkins diet back in March. So far I have lost right at 38lbs. I am very happy, but am trying to lose at least 20 more pounds.

Hmm...just not good with this

I'm thinking that perhaps the reason I'm not good at remembering to blog as often as I'd like to share info with my friends, may be due to the fact that I'm forced to leave an End of shift report at work and it makes me rack my brain to remember what I have done in the last 8 hours and not forget anything, that by the time I'm finished with that.....well I've done all the talking so to speak for one night.
Maybe I should start trying to do this of the morning before I go to work. Hmmm....there's a thought, we'll see how far I get with that one.
On a happier note. It's been 3 months now since I started my Atkins diet. I'm now down 23lbs!!!! Yay for me. Hope to be able to lose another 12 by my birthday in August. Fingers crossed!
It's been so humid here that I've not got to enjoy much of the outdoors as of late. I mainly stay in the air conditioned house, along with the pei, who are none to interested in being out in the heat and humidity either.
Think that is enough for the night. I'm off to read in my book now. Catch ya next time.

Day before Mother's Day

Tonight I went to a dinner with my Mother and my sister for Mother's Day. It was nice and I was really glad to see my sister. We don't see each other enough now days. Of course she has 5 kids to keep her very busy, but I miss her all the same. She can't get on the internet cause she doesn't have a computer at home, but I hope one day she will.
I had some flowers delivered to my Mother on Thursday. She really likes them. I plan to go by and visit with her tomorrow.

Why oh why!?!

Must I wait until winter has come and gone to get sick?!?! I think its just my sinuses but really not sure. I finally went to the doctor yesterday. I not only got 2 shots, but also an antibiotic, nose spray and eye drops. Hoping in the next day or so I will be back to my usual self. Had to take 2 days off of work, not good for vacation time later in the year.
On the bright side, the sun is shining today and it's nearly 70 degrees outside. All the pei took full advantage and sunned themselves as much as possible.

Hey I'm getting better

Another weekend has come and gone. Back to work Monday. Did have a rather nice weekend though, that is until Saturday night when I started getting that dreaded scratchy throat that is a tale tale sign for me that my sinuses are messed up. ARGH! I'm going to try and not go to the doctor unless of course it turns into a full blown infection which nearly everytime it does. Sunday I rested the whole day and even got in a nap on the couch which usually means I don't feel well cause I never seem to be able to fall asleep with the tv on otherwise.
Its chilly here again today, I'm ready for warm weather but only if its gonna get warm and stay warm. This back and forth mess is what messes me up.
Well, got to go, more next time maybe.

Weekend News

I am enjoying the day with the dogs. Hubby went to see a high school basketball game. I decided to stay home and enjoy the time on my computer. :)
I'm really trying to not worry about my job situation, cause afterall its not like I can do anything about it anyway. Still its easy to say you aren't going to worry but very hard to do so. I have at least learned from all this how important it is to get my impulsive spending habits under control.

Jonathan and I gave the big boy Cojak a bath today. That was fun, haha, gosh I don't know how much he weighs now, all I do know is it takes the both of us, and he's still very heavy. I only did him today, perhaps we will do another tomorrow.

It's overcast here today, and expecting a shower sometime today or tomorrow. The first day of Spring! Yeah, bring it on, I'm ready for some sunny warm weather.

All the pei are snoozing and I think I'm going to read a book.

I thought of you today

This is my second entry on my own blog in a week, hey I'm doing better this week. :)
Not a whole lot to talk about though. Still a waiting game about my place of employment, I sure hope things pick up soon.

I'm so glad to see some sunshine today. I know my hubby is glad, this is the second day in a row now that he has "rolled" the lawn so that it levels out while its still pretty wet. Next will come the fertilizer, boy where the dogs run, they have worn a path.

I am still doing good on my diet, at least I think I am, I know following this Atkins seems alot better than some of the other diets I have tried. I dont mind if it takes a while to see results, just as long as I see some. I know my body already feels better with stopping the sugar. It's worth it for nothing but that even. I don't seem to have the blood sugar problems at least not right now. I hope with changing my eating habits things will be better in that area. So far I think I've only lost about maybe 5lbs, I started on the 7th of March.

That's about it for me today, catch you next time.

I'm here for now

So, I don't think I'll ever get around to being a faithful everyday blogger. Sorry, just can't seem to fit it in. Maybe one day though you just never know.

There have been quite a few things going on around here though. Lets see if I can recount a few of them for you.

I think Chloe mentioned in her blog that Cojak and Scooter got into a scuffle that didn't go over really well with the hubby. He's tired of them fighting, but to their credit it HAD been quite some time. I'm just always on edge for a while after to be available whenever I'm at home to be around them. This sometimes doesn't work out because I always seem to "need" to lay back down of the morning once he gets up for the day. My fingers are crossed though that nothing else happens.

One morning a few weeks ago now, he called and woke me up from one of my morning naps, saying he needed me down here. I just knew they had gotten into a fight. I jump up run down here and I see his warm up jacket laying on the floor in the 1/2 bath downstairs. My first thought was he had gotten bitten trying to get them apart. I venture further and discover him sitting there, with what looked like blood all around him. This I soon learned was the case but it was not from one of the dogs. My hubby had gotten sick and brought up all this blood. I call 911, shaking, I told them what was going on and they arrived within about 15 minutes or less. We found out that his acid reflux had messed up his esophagus and 3 nights prior to this he had been sick at his stomach. When this happened he ripped his esophagus and it took a few days for it to come up. Anyway, he had to have some blood given to him where he lost so much, and after a few days in the hospital he was allowed to come home. No surgery!!!! Thank God!!! I just knew it was going to be another surgery and he's been through so much health wise within the last year. Just really glad he's home and seems to be doing fine. He has to take medicine, but it appears to be healing on its on.

My job, there's a touchy subject right now. I'm not sure what is going to happen there, but business hasn't been good for a while now. They let 4 people go about 2 weeks ago, needless to say, I'm very scared that my time to leave is approaching. I really hope not, I hate to have to go out looking for another job, when there just doesn't seem to be much around here anymore. Fingers and paws are all crossed here that business picks up and things work themselves out.

I am now working 4 days a week. 9 hour days. We are doing this I think for about 3 months. This is my first week of doing it, but I must say, it has been really nice being home for 3 days this weekend. Just really weird how in the automotive industry you can go from working 7 days a week for a long time to practically no overtime in the matter of just a little time.

Ok, sounds like I've said enough to keep everyone up on what is going on for now.
Off to play a game with Jonathan.

2nd blog for the new year

I will eventually get around to doing this on a daily basis, maybe. :) I am so very glad that I am off on a 3 day weekend. I was going to work Monday, which is a holiday for the hourly people but not for us, then I just said, nah, I'd much rather have a long weekend.
The hubby is about to watch a football game, so perhaps I'll read some more in my book I'm reading at the moment. It's Dean Koontz, and I believe if I remember right, it is "A Big, Little Life", its a memoir about his dog Trixie that went to the bridge a few years ago. I'm sure it's going to make me cry.
Chloe got up and appeared to be fevering this morning. I always try and give it an excuse other than FSF. She did throw up last night, so I'm thinking maybe it is something else. Paws crossed anyway.
My goal for the weekend is to list some stuff on Ebay, and to get my computer room organized. Lastly, I'd like to be able to get all my stuff downloaded off the computers to the new portable hard drive I bought a while ago.

New Year Resolutions

On New Years I sat and thought about my resolutions for the year and what I wanted to try and accomplish. My list had several different things to choose from so I will name just a few and hope that by doing so I will commit to them a bit more.
1. Blog more often, well considering this is the 12th of the month already and I don't think I've blogged any thus far, seems I'm really getting this under control. Haha!
2. The ever I need to drop at least 30 pounds. This one continually gets renewed each year and so far has not reached the goal with the exception of once upon a time, years ago. Well see how I do this go around.
3. Help my son become more responsible and hoping he'll be able to get a part time job this summer. We are making head way with this one, fingers crossed that it lasts through the year.
4. Something we always strive for in our own way, be a better person and make a difference in the world some kind of way. I continually strive for this, but wonder sometimes how big of an impact one can make.
Well, I'm just 12 days late in my first item, hoping as the days go by, things will improve.

About Me

My photo
Jefferson Township, Ohio, United States
This is a blog about my life. Nothing fancy and nothing of consistency very much either, as I tend on occassion to forget to write on here. Anyway, I'm a married woman of 38. My son Jonathan just graduated from high school and now in the process of figuring out what to do next. We have 6 Chinese Shar Pei, and that pretty much sums me up.
