So things have been mostly good. Work is probably the only thing that's causing the most stress in my life right now, and it's really not super stressful. I don't allow it to affect my home life so I feel it's not super stressful, at least not in comparison to other jobs I've had in the past.

I have lost a full 30 lbs as of this past Friday. I am finally back until 150 for the first time in probably 5 years. It feels really good. To know that I'm only about 15 lbs away from hitting my goal makes me want to reach it just that much faster. I now go to the gym to do cardio a minimum of twice a week; lately it's been 3 times. I have almost completed my first full month of doing the 30 day challenges. In the past I'd stopped toward the last few days of the month. Not this time! I've been eating better and staying away from huge portion sizes. I've even turned down candy and unhealthy items. Not all, but in the past I'd have just gone with it.

I went for a hike last weekend and that was when I truly noticed the difference in how losing the weight affected me. I mean, I've had to buy new clothes because my old ones didn't fit anymore. I've had to stop wearing some things because they're too loose and I just haven't replaced them yet. But this hike is one that I've done a few times before and there was always this one hill that I'd just have to keep stopping while on the way up. This time, I just powered through it, with only stopping twice; once because my friend asked me to and the second time so that I could take a picture of the overlook. I wasn't even really all that out of breath by the time we reached the top. It felt so good. The last time I'd done that hike, I was 40 lbs overweight. This time I was only 10 lbs overweight. Amazing what a difference losing 30 lbs makes.

Nothing super exciting has happened other than that. I need to go grocery shopping tomorrow because I'm back to having no food in my apartment. I will also need to put gas in my car at some point this week. I'm still good for the week as long as I don't go any kind of distance, but the back and forth to and from work, I should be okay until next weekend. By Saturday I'll have to put gas in my car for sure.

It's short, but it's what I've been up to recently; just working and hanging out.

Until next time. . .

Laugh it up
Friday. 3.25.16 6:38 pm
Because sometimes you need something so ridiculous that it just makes you laugh and go wtf at the same time.

Woof


I have no idea why this last bit is turning it in to a link... it's just the two videos above. Regular blogs should be back this weekend. I just haven't felt up to writing lately.

Until then...

St Patrick's Day
Thursday. 3.17.16 9:15 pm
Since I happen to own a lot of clothing items with varying shades of green, remembering to wear at least one of them today was not difficult. I also have green on all the time, with that being one of the colors on one of my tattoos, but that's beside the point.

I haven't felt much like writing recently, as I'm sure at least someone has noticed. Just not much on the mind that I'm wanting to type out about. I'm not sure if I'll be writing any more the remainder of this week because tomorrow I'm aiming to just be in bed super early and then Saturday I'm going hiking with a friend. It's long overdue so that'll be nice. We have so much to catch up on.

I'm cautiously optimistic about tomorrow's shift. We have less than 100 patients for the day {weirdly enough, since that's fewer than we had during the holidays and tomorrow's just a random Friday} so it, theoretically, should be a good day to catch up on stuff. Theoretically. We'll see what happens.

Best day/worst day
Sunday. 3.13.16 5:55 pm
I didn't mean to forget to write on Friday; I just happened to go out and not get home til late, totally unplanned. I was texting a friend to see if he wanted to go see Zootopia with me on Sunday, but he told me he was already out go see it and asked if I wanted to join him. Since I don't live that far from Downtown, I headed out to meet up.

The movie was a lot deeper than I realized it would be. I mean, I knew there was a story line, but Disney has gotten a lot deeper and deals more with controversial topics as of late. I like how it turned out. After the movie, we decided to stop somewhere for drinks, which ended up pushing my goal to be in bed by 11 out to 2. I already had an alarm set for 8:30 yesterday morning because me and another friend already had a full day planned.

I was luckily able to sleep through until the alarm; I would have been dragging the whole day if I'd gotten any less sleep. I picked up my friend around quarter after 9, we had a couple donuts before heading north for our nail appointment. I only got a pedicure, while she got a mani/pedi. I have two shades of green on my toes right now because St. Patrick's day. I got normal polish this time around so that I can take it off myself whenever I want, rather than having to wait until my next nail appointment to have the gel taken off.

After the nail appointment, we had about an hour and a half to get Downtown for the hair appointments we had to go to next. I detoured long enough to put gas in my car and then got lucky in finding a parking garage in the heart of Downtown that was only $7 for the whole day on the weekends. We stopped at the Pike Place Brewery for a couple drinks and something to eat before going, just so that we had some kind of food in our system.

I had my hair trim appointment first, then a Brazilian scheduled afterwards. This volumizing spray they used in my hair smelled so good and made it super soft so I actually ended up buying a bottle for myself. We'll see how well it works for me without the professional doing it for me. The Brazilian wasn't that bad. There were definitely some parts that hurt and it's a weird feeling afterwards, but we've already scheduled our next two maintenance appointments in the coming months, as well as my next hair trim.

After that, we decided that actual food was necessary so we made our way back up the hill to the Cheesecake Factory. The food was good, as always, but we barely ate any of it, it was so filling. We took our leftovers with us back to my car and then made our way to Pacific Place to do a little shopping. Mostly for her; she needed a new sports bra because I've been dragging her to the gym with me. Success was had so then we stopped at Old Navy so that she could get another pair of workout capris, since the ones at VS are quite a bit more expensive. She was able to get two shirts and a pair of capris for less than what one pair of the workout capris at VS would have cost.

We stopped at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack so that we could try on dresses just for fun. My friend had never seen me in one, since I don't wear them to work, so it was a fun experience for her seeing me all dressed up. After the fun of that we decided to stop at PF Chang's for a light dinner and a couple more drinks before finally heading to a bar to end the night with more drinks. Altogether I had 5 throughout the day and she had a few more, since I was the one driving. We left shortly after 1 to head back to the car. I got home just before 2 again last night.

Since last night was when the clocks changed, it was pretty much 3 when I finally fell asleep and I was up at 8:30 this morning. I didn't feel very well, oddly enough, since I didn't actually get drunk, so I went back to sleep for a couple more hours. I've spent the day just kind of hanging out and relaxing. I finished off my leftovers from yesterday and have been rehydrating. It's incredibly windy again today and the damn tree is smacking and scraping against my window again so I'm hoping the wind dies down before I have to go to bed. I'd rather not be more tired than normal going back to work tomorrow. The high wind warning is only in effect until 11 tonight so we'll see.

Silly question
Wednesday. 3.9.16 8:44 pm
I legitimately have days where I look outside and think, "is it really still raining?" Of course it is, you do live in Seattle. Despite the fact that it is far less rainy than most people think it is, it does still rain fairly consistently on the days when it does rain. You'd think after 5 1/2 years here, I'd be used to it by now.

A couple of my coworkers discovered the weird quirk I have when it comes to even/odd numbers. Usually when people have small amounts of OCD, it usually has to deal with things not being straight, or in the right place. If something is just slightly off, they fix it and it's fine again. I don't freak out if I don't have something in an odd number, but it makes me feel better if it is. Hence why most of my blogs are typed out on the odd dates. If I really feel like I need to get something out of my system, I will do so regardless of the date, but it just feels better if it's on an odd date. I'm sure I've mentioned this in the past, but few people who personally know me, know about this quirk.

I'm gonna call it an early night tonight. It probably partially has to do with the rain, but I've been sleepy most of the day. I was tempted to go to sleep when I got home, but I knew I needed to eat dinner and call my mom. I watched some YouTube videos to keep myself awake long enough to make it only a slightly early night; if I go to bed too early, I'll be awake way earlier than I need to be on a work day. Or really any day, but if I'm awake at 3am on the weekend, I don't give a shit if I can't get back to sleep for an hour since I won't have to worry about waking up to an alarm. If that happens during the week {like it did last night... maybe that's part of the reason why I'm so tired} it's annoying.

I had a couple weird dreams last night too. It was a combination of a house party that someone at work was hosting and then I was part of a zombie apocalypse. It was weird. I like to tell people I know if they appear in my dreams, but I'm not sure if I should tell this person. I don't know him well enough and I'd like to not make it super awkward. So we'll see. If I remember, I'll bring it up, but I talked with him twice today and I forgot each time.

Anywho, I'm gonna knock out now. I'm so ready for sleep. At least tomorrow is one day closer to Friday. I'm even more ready for the weekend.

Rut
Monday. 3.7.16 9:12 pm
I feel like I've been in kind of a rut lately. I haven't gone exploring in a while. I haven't taken any exciting pictures. I haven't gone on any wild and crazy adventures. I've gone out with friends, but I haven't done anything for myself in a while. I just have no idea what I want to do, though. I also feel like this is affecting the quality of my blogs. I'm just typing about the same old stuff, repeating incidents that happened with fussy patients, etc.

I dunno. I just feel like I'm in a bit of a rut.

Tomorrow is going to be worse than today. I didn't even see how many patients we have scheduled for tomorrow, but the person who's covering for one of the girls who's at a different site for training, I hate him. No, hate is a strong word. I severely dislike him. I was way happier than I probably should have been when I found out he'd taken a permanent position. I thought this meant that he wouldn't have to work on our floor anymore. Clearly I was mistaken. I keep saying that I'd need a drink after a day like I'm assuming tomorrow is going to be, and I actually still have beer in my fridge, but then I remember my goals and I refrain from drinking.

I also do not have any kind of foods that will go well with the beer. I'll need to get pizza or something of the sort for that.

Anywho, wish me luck for tomorrow's shift. I'm calling it an early night because I'll need my rest.

Oh, I bought another bikini from VS. They were still on sale and I wanted to have some kind of variety. It should be here in a few weeks; the top is on back order. We'll see how it fits once I get it.
